A very big hello to hat lovers across the world, as it’s that time again!  Here I am with another hat for Judith Boyd’s Hat Attack session.


This isn’t a charity shop hat, as I bought this in London (in John Lewis, I think) for the quite reasonable price of £25.  I love its colour and cloche-like shape, plus the dinky bow at the back, which you can see here.


As much as I love this hat, it’s a standard size, which means it’s a tad too small for my head.  So I have to watch that it doesn’t ride up and look as though it’s perched on top of my head!


Also, here in the UK it’s really mild at the moment (and wet). I’d love it to be just a bit colder so I can wear my winter hats!


As you can see I’m wearing it with a long (Peacocks) T-shirt, my charity shop (Gap) jeans and a matching (Toast) jumper, which was a gift.

That’s all for now.

    It is a lovely hat…and I appreciate that you showed it with jeans and a sweater. It looks just as though you could wear it that way, or with an open coat. I also appreciated last week’s blog on makeup…and want to remind you of my own tip for us women of a certain age: eyebrows. A little attention to our changing eyebrows makes a big difference to our appearance, especially getting them shaped into a tidy curve…or do it yourself if your eyes are good and you have the right tools. There is nothing wrong with plucking, though waxing and threading are much quicker. Then, getting rid of the grey ones, either by getting your hairdresser or salon person to dye them, or simply to pluck out the grey ones which go their own way, being a thicker, less obedient brow hair.
    It lifts the eyes, and opens up the face.
    Thank you very much for the blog.

    I love that hat so much. I’m a sucker for cloche style hats and that one is awesome. It’s funny you mentioned the standard size because my head is pretty large–and it isn’t from the amount of knowledge stored in my head either! But I would have to wear an extra large size hat like that. As usual you always have great posts–enjoyable to read! Thank you!

      Thank you so much, Catherine. Yes, hats can look so good in the shop – then I put it on my head and no way does it fit! But just got two rather good woollen hats in my local craft market, which are really big – might feature one next month. And I love reading your blog!
