Start with this cute (and affordable!) floral dress and then add the bold pink hat. Finish off with a neutral shoe and neutral bag.

Work half a day + Window shopping with my boyfriend + Movie and dinner with my boyfriend and his family

I love hats, plain and simple, but wearing hats in Panama truly is a challenge. Most people in Panama dress in the same way, so when there is someone who wears something out of the box, it truly is like a sore thumb that stands out. That said, it is always a challenge for me to wear hats because nobody here in Panama wears them.

For that reason, I've learned that confidence is a key ingredient to wearing my funky colorful hats in this country. I always get many stares, whispers, and comments (sometimes good sometimes bad). I also have people who look at me like "who does she think she is?!". But you know what? I love hats, and I will keep wearing my hats no matter how many people stare at me or whisper things about me.

I dress for myself and for nobody else. I feel so proud of myself for being myself and not caring about what other people think. I hope you all stay true to yourselves as well! You are all special and wonderful, no matter what other people say. Be you, cuz you are great!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this dress:
