So here’s the trouble with hats:
If you want to take one on a trip, this means that unless you are ninety-five years old and own a hatbox, you have to wear the thing while in transit.

There are, however, very good things about hats.
For example, I think that my H&M one, while very dorky, is also very fabulous, and my plan is to wear it constantly this summer.
