New summer hat

I've been looking for a floppy hat since last summer, and wanted something that would be comfortable and easy to match. This hat at Anthropolgie was perfect and the gift card I had was more than enough. I love the wooden buttons on the side, and since it's cotton I can just fold it up and stuff it in my bag.

This weekend I finally gave a friend her belated birthday gift. I really love how the yellow string looks against this brown paper package.
