Hey Lovely People! I have to apologize for the lack of posting this week. I mentioned on Twitter yesterday that I almost feel like it’s not worth it to take vacation because your first day back at work is something like hell. Lol! All that relaxation went out the door after one hour on the job…and suddenly I felt even more stressed than I did before my vacation started. Since work is not optional, the blog is suffering a bit…but bear with me, I’ll be back in no time!
In the meantime, I thought I’d kick off a new feature – The Inspiration Board. Remember Tumbl’n on Tuesday? Well, that kind of died out when my Tumblr obsession was usurped by Pinterest. But, I’ve received some feedback and emails that you all miss those types of posts, soooooo I thought I’d try something new…tell me what you guys think!
The Inspiration Board: Panama Hats
I first became obsessed with finding a Panama Hat when I saw Jessica Alba’s ultra chic and cozy beige ensemble back in May. Now, I’m not a beige girl AT ALL, but this look really spoke to the layer-lover in me, and the hat finished the look off perfectly. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, and I saw my buddy Cathy at Poor Lil It Girl rocking a Panama Hat with her bright color-blocked pink and orange ensemble. I immediately got excited because Cathy’s blog focuses on fashion finds under $100, so I knew her hat would be perfect for my budget. And much to my delight, her hat was from GAP with a price tag of only $29. Now, I was perfectly willing to pay $29, but wouldn’t you know it, I walked into a GAP store in Miami and found the very same hat on sale for only $10. SCORE!
The hat is still available here for $25.99 + 30% Off with Promo Code JULY2012 if you can’t find it in your local store. (Promo Code exp 7/26.)
