It’s the HAT

Summer days don’t only revive me but they get my sense of fashion out of me in full.  I’m proudly wearing my Sombrero Vueltiao, a well-known icon of Colombian culture and now a national and international symbol. The term could be translated roughly as “turned hat.”

It’s like carrying a little piece of my heritage with me wherever I go

I’ve been known to wear it not only in hot summer days at the pool or the beach, but on my travels, date nights, girl’s nights, or shopping, dining and even dancing.

Want to know more about it? Check  here or here. Or see that this famous hat is a world traveler, too.

I need to work on getting baby a MINI Sombrero Vultiao ;) I think she would look darling with it on.

  4. Sebi needs a "mini" one too, we have a big one up in his room as decor that he likes to wear, except when he puts it on, it covers his whole head. Ha ha ha ;)

  6. Hello Vivian! In my country, we also call hats as "sombrero." The Philippines used to be a colony of Spain. Hence, a lot of our words here have Spanish origin.

    The sombrero looks good in you. It's so hip and sexy! :)
