I found this hat among a display of Eric Javits sun hats and tried it on for fun – assuming that it was well out of my price range. The gold metallic band caught my eye.
My daughter has laughed at most of my attempts to fund a cute sun hat, but even she told me that this one looked good.
So I checked the price tag assuming it would be about $200 – and it cost $18.98. It’s not Eric Javits, but the classic design had fooled me. Needless to say, I snapped it up.
The Nordstrom Open Weave Floppy Hat comes in natural with a gold band or black with a gunmetal band. It’s marked down from $38.
The open weave lets a little sun in, but the extra air flow makes it infinitely more wearable on a hot day. It also had an adjustable band so you can tighten it – a great feature for smaller heads and windy days.
