Mail Day: Crosscourt Petal Black/Clarity What 'Sup Hat

Taken in indirect morning light

Taken in evening, under florescent lighting

I disappointingly Instagrammed and Tweeted last night that I thought the Crosscourt Petal What 'Sup hat was more muted in real life than as shown the website but that may have been due to my not getting the hat until late afternoon. It's a bit brighter looking in the morning light, and I think just right when worn - colorful but not garish.

The print continues under the brim - love when lulu does this.

The adjustable band is blue - an interesting touch.

No metal or sticker logo - just a subtle tag in the back - love this!! Lulu fans will instantly recognize this as a lulu product from the style and print anyway and non-lulu fans will just see a cute hat.

This is the second What 'Sup hat I have bought (technically third but I had to replace my camo one. I lost it on the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. I know they tell you to take your hats off - listen to them! - but I didn't listen and it blew right off in the dart room. I was incredibly bummed when they couldn't find it - it sold out fast and the hat goes for $90 on eBay these days. You cannot imagine my relief when the camo was re-released. It has now become a standing joke in our family that the big snake has it. Anywhoo, -- ) and I have a couple others from last year's Sea Wheeze that I wear all the time. It's my go-to I-haven't-washed-my-hair-time-to-take-the-kids-to-school-hat. The only issue with it is if you have a smaller head you might find it pops up on you like Elmer Fudd:

If you have a larger noggin or lots of hair to tuck under it, it's a fantastic hat. I've been waiting for them to release a darker print that had a black band and the Crosscourt Petal is a beaut.

I don't run in this hat since it's kind of bulky and I'm afraid to wash it but I use it for everything else - watching my son play soccer, theme-parking, covering bed-head. I just love it.

I have the same hat arriving tomorrow in the mail - can't wait to get it. This is my 4th What Sup hat. They are so comfortable - I love them! I would really love to see them release a version in a brighter colour or two over the summer just for variety.
