It took Maile a long time to agree to wear and hat and, bizarrely, it was the summertime that got her to change her mind. She doesn’t care if her ears get cold, but she can’t bear the sun being in her eyes. This bucket-style cotton hat has just enough of a brim to shade the eyes without blocking the view, and the slightly elasticized yarn helps it to stay on.
