A couple of days ago I wore my lovely spotty red hat, as the good weather had temporarily deserted the UK and we were back to rain. However, before I show you the more autumnal hats I mainly have, I thought you ought to see this fabulous straw hat.
Also this post was prepared earlier for Judith Boyd’s hat attack session in June when I was away on the cruise. I think I said, I never found a suitable place or the free wifi (and anyway could I have done it just on my phone) so it never got posted.
But what a great hat! I saw it in a charity shop and thought I have to have it and it cost me, not a lot, at only £5.
It is rather magnificent, isn’t it? It’s kind of a garden party hat, which I’ve teamed with a matching charity shop coat bought last year.
It is a beautiful hat, but I wonder if I’ll ever wear it out and about as it’s quite dressy? Also it’s not really a hat to wear in very hot weather as ironically it’s quite heavy – there’s a lot of straw in this straw hat!
By the way, the photos were taken in May and my hair is now much whiter. I’ve had that conversation with my hairdresser and we are going to go through a process and it’ll take about a year. But people, I’m going white! More about this in another post.
That’s all for now!
