I'll come out and say it: I love hats. Beanies in the Winter, cowboys in the Fall, there's not a season where I skip out on finding a good head accessory. In fact, I'm writing this while wearing a straw visor! Now that I'm regularly outside playing with my daughter (who's also in a sun hat), it's part of my daily wardrobe. But travelling with hats is incredibly difficult. They take up lots of awkward space, and if you're travelling with a family and using your luggage to pack for yourself and the kids, the last thing you have space for is a hat box to protect your precious accessories.
Which is why I love the Lanzom Wide Brim Straw Panama Hat ($16). Not only does it offer great protection (it's UPF 50+), but it's also designed to roll up, so you can stash it in luggage, your purse, or even the nappy bag! Wherever you can find a spot for it. Just unfurl it when you've arrived at the pool or beach, and the hat should be back to its normal shape. It's a must-have item for parents who will be vacationing this Summer and want something that will travel well.
