The Hat You Need for Every Occasion

It’s time to conquer your fears of hat hair and amp up your outfits.

The Hat You Need for Every Occasion

A statement hat can instantly take a simple dress or plain t-shirt and jeans combo to a look that can part the streets of NYC. With summer beaconing to us, we need to be prepared in terms of style and protection from the rays. There is a hat for every season, occasion, and style- so why are people so afraid of adding hats to their accessory collection? It’s time to conquer your fears of hat hair and amp up your outfits with a runway-ready hat collection to welcome the summer months.

1. The fedora

The fedora is a multi-purpose hat that can work with casual outfits on the beach or easily work with dressier looks to pull everything together and add a touch of Cali flair. It can come in a breathable woven straw material- easy for fitting into a beach bag- or a sturdier felt which can crossover into the colder months. Street style or beach style, the fedora has your head covered.

2. Floppy hat

Classic and dramatic fashion is always in style, so why not play up your inner Chanel? The bigger the hat, the better. Sprawl out on your crisp white towel in Palm Springs and pair your statement piece with oversized Prada shades to really get the full effect. Imagination works too, but really, the floppy hat is a need for the summer months spent soaking up the sun.

3. Beret

Don't be mistaken, the beret is not a hat solely reserved for the French. However, it is important to wear it correctly to avoid looking like a mushroom (oops!) Wear the beret slightly to the side and allow your side part to peak out and pull the other side slightly forward from your hairline. Pouf it ever so slightly and voila, you're looking like Rihanna and Gigi Hadid themselves- but better.

4. Wide brim felt hat

I am using this as a broad category for anything that isn’t quite a fedora, but not yet a floppy hat. These hats can add boho flare or a timeless essence to an outfit depending on how you choose to style it. Wide brim hats have a certain air of sophistication about them, and all should experience what they can do for your favorite outfit.

Now that summer is in full swing, it is the perfect excuse to add to your collection or start a new one to protect yourself from the sun’s rays in style. Whether you want to spice up an outfit, cover -up a bad hair day, or to add extra glam to your day- a hat is a positive addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Let the hat frenzy begin.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
