I am headed to Paris this summer for an anniversary trip with my husband. Having very fair skin and sunscreen sensitivity, I need to wear hats. I didn’t think a baseball hat would look stylish enough for Paris, and my big straw hat isn’t easily packable. Now, I have a larger than average head and most hats I find in the stores don’t fit me. Those cute hats I saw at Athleta in the mall? Not for my big head!

The solution I hit on is to make my own hat. I just bought a vintage Vogue pattern, and some fabric. Full-speed ahead & wish me luck.IMG_20130502_131700-1
