My Favorite Hats for Traveling • The Blonde Abroad
It’s no secret that I love a good hat! While venturing around Europe this summer—through Ireland, Italy, and Greece—I sported my fair share of chapeaus.

- Three: stack them, fill them, and create a cocoon in your suitcase with socks, shirts, and other soft materials.
