Happy Graduation!

Wishing my “little” brother a very happy college graduation!  Smarty pants is graduating cum laude…and even though I just graduated last year, it is making me feel old.

Welcome to the real world, C!  Congratulations and good luck!

A Summer Hat Trick

I will be spending a week at the beach in South Carolina this summer with one of my best friends. With my fair Irish skin, I will need all the sun protection I can get. Along with my SPF 50 this summer, I want to add a fun hat to the mix this summer. Chic and retro.

Whirling Plaid Sunhat
The plaid makes it oh-so-preppy.

Pins and Needles Crochet Straw Floppy
The scalloped edges make it look like lace, but the straw makes it perfect for the beach!

Summer Straw Hat

It is simple. You can’t go wrong with it.
