Here’s a short and sweet post to celebrate the fact I’m wearing contacts and eye makeup again – yay! And here’s a new hat bought from a charity shop for £10. I think that’s quite expensive for a hat that I’m not sure I’ll wear all the time (unlike a beret or my fedoras) but it’s such a great hat, I couldn’t resist it!
It’s got a net all the way around it.
It was yesterday when I put my contacts in for the first time in 3 weeks. I’d got used to the glasses, but still I was so pleased to be myself once more.
I’m sharing this with Judith Boyd’s monthly #hatattack session. I see there are fewer shares up on that first of the month post on Style Crone, which is such a shame. Judith has said that maybe more and more people are going to Instagram, but I think nothing beats a good blog post, and I do hope Judith (at Style Crone) keeps that hat share going! Because I think hats should be celebrated and indeed encouraged. People have said to me that maybe I wear hats because I live in a country where people wear hats a lot. Actually, hardly anyone wears hats during the summer. I didn’t see one in London the last time I went, and in the winter it’s mainly the ubiquitous woolly bobble hat with maybe a few more proper hats worn in Brighton, but not, funnily enough, in London. So glad I live where I do and can wear quite a large hat without feeling too self-conscious, because, you know, it’s Brighton!
Anyway, I spent a very happy morning on Friday putting on the makeup, the hat and trying out several outfits including one I’m going wear on Sunday. Look at the mess I made of my bed though!
And where am I going on Sunday? Find out in my blog post early next week!
Until then, with love

P.S. Thank you so much for all the good wishes you sent me while I wasn’t feeling 100% – nearly all better now!
