As Seen In: Jackie G Fedora in Travel & Leisure Magazine

Travel & Leisure's July issue featuring Jackie G fedora.

The Jackie G fedora is hot-hot-hot this summer!  It’s being featured in yet another great magazine spread, this time Travel & Leisure.  In their July “Summer in Europe” issue, Jackie G appears as a wonderful answer to the question “I need a packable sun hat for my upcoming trip to Barcelona.  Any suggestions?”.

Indeed, Jackie G would be a fantastic sun hat for a visit to Barcelona.  Or Madrid.  Or Paris.  Or… well, anywhere that looking fabulous and protecting your face from the sun are of equal importance.  Jackie G’s fedora lines are cute and trendy, and the blocked colors are fun and summery.  The UPF 50+ rating means that the material will block 98% of the sun’s rays.  Travel-friendly?  You bet.  Just flatten Jackie G length-wise, and it’s ready to tuck into a carry-on, day pack or beach bag.

Jackie G comes in the pink/natural as featured, and also white/natural, and gold.   $35 by Physician Endorsed.  Jackie G is part of SolEscape's wonderful collection of fashionable, sun-protective sun hats.

Beach of the Week: Cala Mariolu, Sardinia, Italy

Stunning Cala Mariolu on Sardinia

The Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) of the Italian island Sardinia is home to many stunning beaches.  Let’s explore Cala Mariolu today.  Cala Mariolu is in an inlet at the base of majestic limestone cliffs, and accessible by sea (or very adventurous hike).  The beach is composed of smooth white pebbles, and scattered with large boulders.  The water is calm as can be, like a deep, crystal-clear, turquoise pool.  It’s shallow and perfect for wading or for children to play in.

Amenities are scarce here, so be sure to pack a picnic and bring lots of water.  Outside of that, what more could you need?  A swimsuit, some sunscreen, and a whole day to take in the beauty of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda.  Perfetto!  

Beach days and sun protection go hand in hand.  Visit SolEscapes to stock up!
