These days it seems like the Norwegian summer is coming to an end, and I'm longing back to South of Europe with it's sunny weather and relaxing days.
Pretty much all of summer I live in different variations of summer hats, I do think they give an extra edge to a summer outfit, but mostly I wear them to protect my face as my skin really protest agains the strong rays.
This is probably the simplest of DIY you can do, -but why not personalize your hat a bit? I simply added a Hermès scarf that I don't wear nearly enough to a panama hat (with safety pins, no less!),- and voila! A little bit more dressed up version of the summer hat. If you're feeling really confident of the result you can hand-stitch it on.
