I can’t count the number of times I went to Hampton Beach as a child. I went there for family trips, birthday parties, and summer day camp activities. It was The Beach, and no matter how many times I went, I was always just as excited to go again. Hampton itself is in many ways the quintessential New England beach town, and I wanted this hat to evoke similar feelings in me.

The scalloped rib border and circular lace motif both evoke the nautical feel of the coast at Hampton. No matter where you are, Hampton is reminiscent of charming, breezy days by the water, and everyday adventures with friends.
