About three years ago I fell in love with a Panama hat at J.Crew. I wouldn’t normally have liked or even bought something like that, but I don’t know, something about that hat spoke to me!
And surprisingly enough, I wear it decently often, to the beach with friends, on holiday with my family, to the park on a sunny day. Then two years ago when my dad and I visited L.A. I was looking for a big sun hat for long days at the beach. We found one at Manhattan beach as we were walking along that I liked, really simple with a black ribbon and bow.
Now, I can’t see to walk into a store without finding another hat I like! I like that they hide my sometimes messy wind-blown hair, they keep my nose from getting sunburnt, and they seem to take my outfits a step cooler.
I’ve been looking to add another sun hat, and there are so many great options out now. I might just have to pick one up.
Robert the Magnificent (AKA my fancy photographer friend) sent me more photos. There were two beautiful ones from our photo shoot in the park about a month ago, you can read more about it in this post Sunglasses and Pearls. I’m wearing the sunglasses I talked about last post, from Banana Republic. I love them so much I am thinking about buying a back up pair in case anything happens to these.

I had a conflict on Friday, so this week’s Fancy Friday will be held on Sunday. More about that in tomorrow’s post! Robert was also able to recover one photo from the dusk lighting from last week’s Fancy Friday. He is fond of the serious faces, so this is why we look solemn.

I settled on this phone case, and ordered it this morning post workout. I got the durable option, and the Roomie is giving it to me for my birthday next month.
I hope everyone had a lovely Friday night! I know I did. What did you do? Do you have any big weekend plans? Can’t wait to hear all about it!
So I believe that both of my best friends (Robert and Alli) are unbelieveably talented artists. Although they beg to differ, I ask you to be my critics in ascertaining the truth. In late July Robert did a photoshoot of the short one (my roommate) and I at a local park. Normally I am on the other side of the camera, clicking and adjusting the aperture, so this was very exciting for me. It was also hard to stand still for so long. I now have major respect for models. He sent me two photos last night and I was blown away by how elegant I look.

What do you think? Did he do a good job? Isn’t he amazingly talented? Where would you do a photoshoot?
