This is another lovely big black hat, which I’m wearing for Judith Boyd’s March Hat Attack.  The hat’s similar to the one I bought in January at Urban Outfitters. But this one is more opulent with a lovely trim.

Sadly I’ve only worn it at funerals. But now I’m being a bit bolder with my hats maybe I’ll wear it more often.

Speaking of funerals you have written a letter and attached it to your will on how you want your funeral conducted, haven’t you? (Hopefully you’re not saying I haven’t even thought about a will – you must.  More about that maybe in another post).

My letter will contain the instruction that I want everyone attending to wear a hat. And I mean any hat: mad, big, small, sweet, funky, elegant, even a beanie would do.

That’s all for now, but do tell me more about your hats!  Btw, I’ve a very different hat for next month’s Hat Attack!

With love

P.S. The nail varnish is called Pink Explosion.  I love that in-your-face colour.

    Lovely hat. Practically no hats worn in Western Canada. Shame.

      Well you could always start a trend …. 😉 Actually, the hats worn in the Uk are usually woollie hats and ‘proper’ hats would only be seen in cities or at weddings. London, though is more conventional than Brighton where you could wear something outrageous and passers-by would say, ‘only in Brighton’. But I did see a Philip Treacy hat walking around in London, which was totally amazing, which the woman (an older woman) carried off with huge aplomb.

    I share your passion for hats and I see that you have also had a career in nursing. I love the idea of requesting that everyone wear hats to your funeral. I may have to embrace that concept. Thank you for sharing you black hat with brim with Hat Attack. Can’t wait to see what you wear for April!

      Thank you so much, Judith, and yes, I do love hats! And as I age I’m wearing more of them so that’s a very big positive about the ageing process 🙂 See you next month! x
