Hat Attack

I've never been a hat girl. They didn't appeal to me and I think I never looked good on them. But when I bought my first straw hat, I fell in love with it. I love how it adds to an outfit, especially in your summer style. Pair it with a cute sundress, you have a rocking summer outfit. It's been a while since I last bought one and I think my one and only straw hat needs a new friend. Thus, I've collected some of the ones that I've added to my online shopping wishlist to get your pulse on this.

Billabong Floppy Straw Hat
Dark Grey Sun Hat
White Pom-Pom Large Brim Hat
Khaki Striped Hat
Vacation Bow Brimmed Straw Hat
Red Raw Trim Brimmed Hat
Eugenia Kim Bunny Hat
Artesano Playa Crochet Hat


Which of these hats should I get?

Uncommon Goods + Unique Gift Ideas


I am of the opinion that accessories and jewelries can elevate a simple outfit. Even when you are wearing a simple tee and jeans, pairing it with the right accessories can transform the outfit. Therefore, I always relish the idea of stumbling upon a website that offers unique jewelry options. When I was introduced to Uncommon Goods, I knew right away that this would be a great website to support. You can check out the website's unique collection of handmade jewelry here

When I tied the knot last year, I bought my bridesmaids and maid of honor earrings as gifts so they all wore the same earrings on my wedding day. Jewelry is and always will be a classic gift idea for special occasions like weddings, bridal showers, birthdays and more. You will be spoiled for choice at Uncommon Goods; just check it out for yourself on their website. I've also included some gift ideas that you can choose from, especially if you are attending a special occasion soon:

From necklaces to earrings, to pendants and other customized jewelry, it's easy to find a style that would suit your personal taste (or that of your intended recipient). You can check out more unique gifts here

Uncommon Goods was founded in 1999 and quickly carved its niche in the industry for its commitment to bring the most unique, handcrafted jewelry while being eco-friendly. Not only are the methods used for production safe for humans, animals and the environment, but majority of the materials used are recycled or upcycled. In addition, their website becomes a platform for artists and designers to showcase their handmade creations. 

On top of an eco-friendly business practice, Uncommon Goods give back to the community. As part of the company's core values, they want to utilize the creative talent of artists to create a positive impact on the environment and the immediate community. To date, they have donated up to $1 Million to charities via the Better to Give program, of which the company has been a part of in the last 12 years.
