I have a confession to make… I got horribly sunburned last weekend at an all-day, outdoor event. Like most of you, I hound my children relentlessly to apply sunscreen, both winter and summer. And last weekend, I forgot my own advice!
This weekend will be a different story, though, because (in addition to a huge new bottle of sunscreen!) I have a new Scala Sewn Ribbon Sun Hat called the Trés Jolie. If you are going to be in the sun for hours on end – at sporting events, while gardening, or even enjoying a day at the amusement park, this is a must-have hat.
The four inch brim is the perfect length to keep the sun off your face from all angles (I’ve never understood baseball caps that leave your neck and ears exposed to the sun). It also has a UPF50+ rating, so you’ll be safe from the sun’s harmful rays.
The Trés Jolie is lightweight and completely packable. In fact, it arrived in small mailing envelope and I was truly shocked that it bounced back into shape perfectly – not a wrinkle in sight! Scala aptly calls it “crushable.”
Plus, it’s so pretty! Available in a variety of colors, the grosgrain ribbon is stylish, as well as practical. You can choose a neutral like white, natural, tan or black, or add a pop of color with more trendy selections like lime (pictured), fuchsia or turquoise.
The Trés Jolie retails for only $30.00. But, Susan Said What?! readers can now receive 20% off by using the coupon code: SUNHATSAVE20 Your final price is only $24!

No payment was received in exchange for this post, however, I received a sample of the Scala Trés Jolie hat in order to fully evaluate the product. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
