As a woman who has lived through many passages and learned through my larger than life experiences (positive and negative), I’ve discovered how to take a big empowering bite out of life.

Stylish Hats and Handbags for Summer 2021

Panama Hat, Hermes Bangles, Gucci Strawberry Tank

Pastels, mini dresses, crop tops, and small straps are all trending in fashion this summer, but darling, as we know, not everyone looks fantastic or feels comfortable in each fashion trend. As I always say, buy for your needs, and for your own personal style. Trends come and go, but your closet can last forever if you buy for your inner and outer style. One fashion trend that hasn’t gone out of style is stylish hats and summer handbags. Every person should have a perfect and chic hat to wear in the summer sun and every woman should have a handbag that matches her summer style.

Here are some of my favorite brands and others I found online for you to shop!

Hats, Caps & Visors For Every Woman

Panama Hat – by J.Crew: I love a timeless Panama Hat. This is a best-seller and we all know why. It is classic and looks great on most face shapes. It’s also a great hat for men or women. Did you know that the Panama Hat got its name when President Theodore Roosevelt wore one on his visit to the Panama Canal? I love this little piece of history. And, it will never go out of style.

Brixton – Jo Straw Rancher: What a sophisticated and chic hat this is. It has a wide brim style and structured silhouette with textured band detailing and a metal hardware plaque. It’s also adjustable! The perfect hat for a summer in the midwest and beyond.

Ultra-Wide Ventura Straw Wide-Brim Hat: Are you looking for an ultra-wide brim straw hat? This Ventura-style hat is a great option. I also love the black tie that will secure your hat on a windy day at the beach. This is perfect for a family or solo bach day!

San Diego Stripe Sun Hat: Bucket hats are back in trend, but I suggest trying a more fashionable style bucket hat with this fun find from Nordstrom. The dome shape only works for certain styles, but it is a fun and trendy hat nonetheless.

Janessa Leone Carlota Woven Straw Baseball Cap: If you like a great baseball cap, consider trying a woven straw one. It has paneled construction and a curved bill to keep the sun out. It’s also made in the USA. A fun find!

Maison Michel Nell Stripe Sequined Baseball Cap: I wanted to add a fun cap to the list. This Maison Mitch sequined cap is unique just like you. Splurge and have fun on yourself this summer. It’s always exciting to stand out in a crowd and stay safe from the sun.


Helen Kaminski ‘Bianca’ Visor: This stylishly striped visor is made out of natural braided raffia and also has an elastic band sewn in. This makes it easy for any size head to wear, and look how classy and chic it looks. If you love a visor instead of a hat, this is a great option.

Blue Dior J’Adior Visor: This blue Dior visor is made in Italy and one of my favorite go-to summer accessories. It has a nice adjustable jacquard and will protect you from the glare that comes from the sun and bright light. Pair this with a beautiful pair of sunglasses and you are ready to go. Dior never goes out of style!

Emilio Pucci Straw Coffa Bag: I buy my items to last a lifetime, and when you buy quality items, they do last a lifetime. Pucci is a great brand that has many different products, but I just love their handbags and totes. If you’re looking for a bag to last a long time, and one that will never go out of style, Pucci is a great option.
