Dorfman Pacific {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I know most, if not all, of us contributors on Dandy care about sun exposure and are really paying attention to protecting our skin.  Several of us have experienced firsthand or have family members who have had to get spots removed and have worried about them being cancerous or not.  All I have to say is yikes!  You can never be too careful!  I’ve vowed this summer to really take the effects of too much sun seriously and will be wearing hats while I’m out at the beach.  I’ve been worried about finding something cute enough because the wrong hat in the wrong setting is sometimes too easy to do.  No fear, Dorfman Pacific came to my rescue and asked if I would review one of their fun summer brimmed hats!

Dorfman Pacific is one of the largest full-line, in-stock headwear companies in the world!  They have men’s, women’s, teen’s, and children’s collections of hats, handbags, and even winter accessories.  They have high quality hats for all occasions and style preferences.  Their summer collections are so cute!  Look at these brimmed hats by Tropical Trends:

And these terrific visors made by Scala.  These actually roll up into cones, as seen below, to save space in your bag and give you the option of bringing it along just in case you need it, especially because it weights practically nothing.  Both the brimmed hats and the visors retail for $25.   LP54-ASST_BlogImage

I had the privilege of reviewing a brimmed hat with the black detail, and it is definitely a keeper.  The dipped black rim takes this from being a standard floppy hat to something distinguishable with a touch of class.

The first thing I noticed when I pulled it out of the box was how NOT scratchy it was.  I was actually expecting something rough and pokey, but this is rather glossy and very flexible.  Comfortable to wear all day, that’s for sure.  I am impressed with the weight–not too heavy so that it won’t weigh your hair down or make you hot and sweaty, but not as light as straw, so I don’t expect it to easily blow away off your head.  VERY durable.  I could leave this crunched in the bottom of my beach bag and it bounces back to shape “at the drop of a hat”, haha.  I crack myself up.

I took it to the beach (this very afternoon!) and felt so cute wearing it :)  I didn’t think I’d like the twine-like tie around it, but I actually think its pretty cute in person.  I didn’t realize it doubles as a self-sizing tie, so that you can adjust the circumference for a perfect fit.  Sweet!

Besides being adorable, these hats have a UPF Sun protection factor of 50 plus!  This darling is also available in three other colors: black, tea, turquoise, and fuchsia.

At our church meetings, the last hour is split for women to go to one class and men to go to another.  At the same time, children 18 months and older are learning in their own classes, while children younger than 18 months stay with their parents.  Generally, these infant and pre-toddlers would go with their moms, but I’ve been surprised over the past few years to find that more and more of these young children are going with their dads to class instead.  In fact, my husband and I were just talking the other day about how almost everyone in his class has his son or daughter while their wives go to class kid-free.

I. LOVE. IT.

I love when dads are equally involved in parenting, and I especially love how naturally they fall into this important role.  I’ve joked before that my husband would probably be the better stay-at-home parent of the two of us (though he’d have to fight me for it), but I’m not sure that I’m really joking.  His attention span for make-believe games and playing with toys beats mine any day.  And he makes a mean grilled cheese sandwich.

DaddyScrubs is a one-of-a-kind, innovative company that celebrates fathers and expectant fathers with fun products to help them prepare for this new role.  Check out this great DaddyScrubs video with information about the company and products!

DaddyScrubs has great expectant father gifts such as these hoodies that come in all sizes and in a variety of colors.  My husband’s favorite story from our first son’s birth is that he was in a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops (because it was 100 degrees outside in sunny Palm Springs, CA!) but that he was FREEZING as he fed my ice chips in our 60 degree room that I swear was stifling.  He wore a hoodie for our second son’s birth.  🙂

Another great new dad gift from DaddyScrubs is from their selection of t-shirts or hats.

And, my favorite daddy to be gift is the DaddyScrubs Bag O’ Books.  As a mom of two boys back to back, I had everything that I needed for my second son — we saved all of the clothes, toys, gear, you name it, but the books had quite the wear and tear from lots of love.  We can never have too many books, and these ones are perfect for storytime with Daddy while Mommy teaches piano lessons.  :)  We received the Bag O’ Books at our home last week and loved to find that there were some books better suited for our four-year-old while also including board books for our one-year-old.
