Spring-Break Essential: The Best Sun Hats for Little Vacationers

Hello, spring. (Well, hello officially, at least.) We’ve been dreaming about you, and counting down the days until you’d peek your sunny little head out from behind winter’s bleak and cold and cloudy horizon. Alas, here you are! The Vernal Equinox—could we love you any more?!? The day that signifies the change in seasons. Of course, the weather is still rather unpredictable (is that snow I see in the upcoming weekend’s forecast?). At least, we know the temperature will slowly but surely rise, and the sun will steadily make more of a regular appearance. We’re counting on you, spring!

While we may have to hold our breath a bit for more spring-like conditions, one thing is fast on the way: spring break! Time to go somewhere beautiful and exotic (unless, of course, your a ski fam), and get a sneak peek at the summer weather on its way.

My crew cut out a bit early for our own officially unofficial spring break vacation last week in Florida and the Bahamas. Sunny days, balmy nights, sand, surf, and warm-weather fun—it was exactly what we needed to recharge our tired bodies and minds.

Seeing my two babies soaking up the rays (protected with SPF and wide-brimmed hats) warmed my heart and soothed my Vitamin D-deprived soul. Not only did they look adorable rocking big straw hats in Boca and Sarasota and Nassau, they stayed shady, calm, and cool. So don’t forget to pack your favorite kid-friendly sunscreen, some flip-flops, and a few haute little toddler sun hats (I mean what more could you possibly need?… ahem, diapers?), if you’re headed somewhere tropical these next few spring-break weeks!

I’ve rounded up a few fashionable and functional toddler sun hats for your smallest spring breakers. Enjoy!

How to Dress for Transitional Weather

layering_springWe had a 50-degree day this past week. Compared to the below-freezing temps we’ve been averaging here in New York City, it felt positively balmy. It was enough to inspire me to break out my trench coat from the back of my closet and wear a pair of ballet flats for errands (the latter of which was a poor choice considering the slushy puddles on every street corner.)

Hard as it may be to believe (there’s still some snow on the ground), spring is almost upon us—and we’re counting down the minutes till March 20th, the first official day of the new season. (T-minus 72 hours—we can practically smell the fresh flowers!)

I can’t wait to trade my winter uniform for breezy spring styles. But, for now, I need transitional styles that will keep me warm in cooler weather and cool in warmer weather. I’ve styled three outfits that work well for late March and early April. So, make some room in your closet. I’m here to help you prepare for the brighter and more stylish days ahead…

OPTION 1: You want to be practical, dress in layers. You never know what the weather will be like this time of year. It might be frigid one day, and beautiful the next. Prepare for all conditions with tank tops, short sleeve tees, and deliciously cozy cashmere sweaters.

OPTION 2: Gray is the new black. And this soft, muted shade of gray is very much on trend right now. The floral blooms on this quilted sweatshirt offer a nod to spring, and a few subtle pops of pink breathe life into this look.

OPTION 3: You don’t have to wait until Memorial Day to wear white pants. Styled with a chambray button down shirt and a navy cashmere sweater, this look is classic, cool, and weather appropriate.
