It’s no secret here that I am a total Summer girl and you can usually find me at our local beach or somewhere along the water just about every weekend. My husband and I enjoy an array of water activities ranging from snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, boating and of course swimming so we are constantly exposed to the elements and especially the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. When looking for summer clothing options, we are always mindful of the fabric that the pieces are made of and often purchase pieces that have SPF protection made into them. When you use this type of added protection along with your normal sun care routine, your chances of keeping yourself and your family free of sun damage dramatically increases. My husband and I both wear a facial “Buff” on our faces whenever we are out on the water and that is a great way to protect you from the nose down. But what about your head and scalp? Did you know that having a Melanoma on your scalp almost doubles your chance of death? That statement alone was enough to make me never leave the house without a hat ever again. Actually, I kind of have them all over the place and if you ask my husband about it, he will tell you that I have hats stashed everywhere! I keep a few different ones in my car that are appropriate for the beach or a day out on the water. And then I keep random ball caps in my work bag, and travel bags at all times. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of hats AND sun protection as well. So I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to try out a road test sample hat from SCALA COLLEZIONE that has UPF 50+ made right into the hat!
I am wearing the LC484 style in BLACK
This particular hat not only has UPF 50+ protection made into it, but also a nice drawstring inside that helps to ensure a perfect fit. And one of the things that I love most about it is that you can literally roll it up and throw it in your bag, and then when you go to put it back on, it will unfold right back into it’s original shape. So no need to worry about it getting all deformed when carrying it around in your bag! This hat is part of SCALA COLLEZIONE’S seasonal collection and is literally the perfect summer hat for me. It has a wide brim that extends far enough out to protect your eyes which is a very important factor to me. And it comes in 20 gorgeous colors ranging from your basic classic colors such as Black and White to more fashionable trendy colors as well.
I had a friend in town just last weekend and I showed her the hat. She immediately fell in love with it and told me that she had to have one. Then while we were out shopping the following day, we found her one at Marshalls in Destin. And the one she found is a gorgeous Coral shade (I meant to get a photo of her wearing it but I forgot) and she only paid $17.99 for it which is such a bargain for this hat.
If you want to snag one of these awesome hats for yourself, I have found a few places that carry them online and I will link them below for you:
Whether you’re a Ball Mom and out in the sun regularly, or just planning a beach vacation, then I highly recommend purchasing one of these. This is one of the easiest and simplest things you can do for yourself in regards to protecting yourself from the sun. And by protecting yourself from the sun, you are also giving yourself anti aging assistance. Which for me is always a huge bonus to me!
I hope you have enjoyed my little review of this amazing product find.
Have a great day and stay beautiful!
