For the nth time, I’ve been saying that summer started early, at least here in Hawaii. Just before I wrote this post, I downed a cup of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Caramel Sutra to cool me off. This brings me to my next question, how are you prepping up for summer? I have some tips I’ll be sharing soon but for now, let me tell you I’m packing a hat!

Pack A Hat is a neat concept by the new Cappelli Straworld, basically it’s a sun hat tucked inside a wristlet. At $25 I think it’s practical and travel-friendly, whether you’re beach-bound or just out and about. The hat has UPF 50+. UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor measures the UV protection by a fabric. For reference, UPF 50 means it blocks 98% of UV Protection. Ergo, 50+ is the highest possible rating.

There are several colors to choose from: red, navy, green, lime, among others. I received black for editorial consideration and this is how the set looks like:

    OK. Seriously! I NEED THIS! I get terrible light induced migraines and my current summer hat is a PITA to carry b/c it's so big. B/C you say this hat folds down to a wristlet means I can stow it away when I finally get inside! I love this concept!

    I have a similar hat that packs up and I love it! It always goes with me in my suitcase, because you never know when a hat will come in handy. Plus, I look cute in hats. 😉
