On our vacation Jeremy was sporting a new straw hat. He was reading a blog he likes (all about how to be a classy guy--from manly hobbies to explore to what kind of flower to wear on your lapel--no really, it's good stuff) and saw A Man's Guide to Summer Dress that sang the benefits of a good straw hat.

And so we got him one. And it looked great with casual clothes.

And on the beach with a swimsuit.

And dressed up for church.

He looked good and got lots of compliments.

My younger brother wore it for 10 minutes while Jeremy sat in the sand with a water bottle on top of his head while we all took turns running out to the ocean with a Dixie cup to bring back water to fill up the bottle. (Yes it was that kind of family reunion.) (Yes, you should be jealous.) So as I watched my brother running in with his Dixi cup, wearing Jeremy's hat, I thought: He sure looks dapper!

He looked classy. Why don't guys wear anything but baseball hats these days?

Jeremy actually has quite the hat collection-- including his beloved bowler. I've always maintained that Jeremy has more style sense than I do. I'm not the kind of wife who lays out my husband's clothes for him each morning. As it stands I probably should let him do a bit more of my clothes shopping. I'd trust him.

The smile you wear on your face is more important than the clothes on your back, and your smile is always in style.

It's a great hat! I never would have guessed it to be so versatile, but it works great!

Also, I love O's face in the last family picture. :)

Something to note, Jeremy's dad had a straw-like hat while we were growing up! It had a nice, comfy band to fit your head.
