Hello again

It’s August 1st and time for another Hat Attack run by the hat loving Judith Boyd, so I thought I’d show you a hat I wear during the warm weather – yes,  a sun hat!


Here in the UK we had some really warm weather in July, but lately it’s been a bit mixed; we’ve had some sun but also had a lot of cloudy, rainy days.  And today I went out into my garden quite early, sniffed the air, and said to myself, ‘I can smell Autumn’, as there was quite a chilly feel to the morning.


But I did wear this hat out and about during the hot July weather.  It’s not a charity shop hat, but one bought from Peacocks over four years ago for the huge sum of £3.99, and still going strong. I love it as it has a big floppy brim that suits my face.


Mind you, perhaps I should show you a hat I will be wearing soon.  I’m going to the Faroe Islands on a cruise and have been looking at the long-range weather forecasts.  I’m sure you all know that the Faroes are above the Shetland and Orkney Islands (where I shall also be going) and below Iceland.  And the weather!  Apparently you can get all four seasons in one day.  Temperatures on the day we visit may be anything from 9-13C (that’s 48-55F) and rain is expected so I’m taking a stylish and waterproof rain hat! I’ll feature it next month.

In the meantime, I’m off into the garden today as the sun is shining.

That’s all for now

    That’s a lovely floppy hat, and I like the spotty top too!

    Those floppy summer hats are classic. Love the wavy rim, don’t you? Enjoy the warm weather while you can!

    Your hat is outstanding! I adore the floppy brim and how you wear it with such style. Thank you so much for sharing with Hat Attack!

      Thank you so much for saying the hat is outstanding! I really love it and wear it whenever I can. Yes, hats are not worn all that much in the UK (apart that is from woolly hats in the winter) just in a few cities. I simply love Hat Attack and meeting other hat-loving women. So a very big thank you to you for setting Hat Attack up!
