Today is Straw Hat Day!

Straw Hat Day is the unofficial start of summer and the official start of straw hat season - if you were wondering about when you could begin wearing yours! The exact date of Straw Hat Day varies somewhat in the United States - the dates of April 24th and May 15th are often cited. In my family, it was always said that May 1st is the first proper day to don a straw hat (and white shoes) and Labor Day weekend in September is the last. I hope you enjoy viewing the straw hats below as well as wearing your straw hats throughout the coming four months!

Cassandra's Favorite Straw Hat!


  1. What a fun post! I don't know if I left a message the last time I was here. I cannot get the morning flowers out of my head!

  2. Love the pictures and LOVE your hat!

  3. Well, Cassandra, you learn something new every day. I had never heard of that before but now I know and I will pull out my straw hats now! Just looking at this Cotswolds photo on my right....stunning!


  4. A very fun post. Thank you!
