Don't be silly, get the Tilley!

My early Mother's Day gift to myself.
You would think that a woman at risk for skin cancer would have a wardrobe of hats. But, not if that woman has the head the size of a bowling ball. I've been trying to find a flattering but enormous sun hat for years, but every cheap one that I bought just seemed to shrink around my skull....or maybe I bought them too small in the first place and hoped they would stretch. Finally, I decided to spend some money and get a Tilley, the hat my big-headed father always preferred. The cute "little" chapeau arrived today and I literally jumped up and down when I put it on. I love it so much, I think I have to buy another! Mother's Day is coming, after all!

Cute! Looks good on you. Never liked my looks in a hat, but I do wear one occaisionally for the sun shade.

Thanks, AF. Some people look great in all kinds of hats. Not me. I am thrilled to find one that I like. Hopefully, there will be fewer trips to the dermatologist's office now.
