We’re taking a short break in France (Toulouse and Lot valley) and I’m packing today. I’ve got my clothes ready but it’s the hat I’m dithering about. Which one to take, as the weather in France could vary between wet, dry, warm and cold. So should it be:
A beret – easy to pack and easy to wear.
Or this winter favourite?
Two things: living in Brighton I take the bus a lot, and it’s cold waiting for it. But at the bus stop, and once on, I see very few hats of any kind. But second, I’m not wearing my bolder hats so much, which is mainly because in these colder months the hat has to be rammed down over my ears to keep out that damp cold wind, and that’s a pity as I have so many wide-brimmed hats. So here are a few:
And this pale fedora – good for the Spring, I think.
Or this: that was me waiting to go on board ship, exactly one year ago!
Or even wider brimmed?
Or perhaps one for the rain?
Actually I’ll definitely take a beret. And after looking at these pix I think it’s the grey one although I’m packing a lot of black so should it be the black fedora, which incidentally I bought in Toulouse 3 years ago!
Likewise I’m still dithering about the coat as it will definitely rain in France but it could be a warmer than here. Decisions, decisions! And I’m very likely to buy a hat in France as I always like to look at my hats and remember the holiday and where it was bought.
So, after this post, you won’t hear from me for 2 weeks. Thank you so much, you lovely people, for all the comments you make. I hope to respond to all the ones made re: my last post. And possibly, just possibly, might also put up a very short piece on My Other Blog on Saturday – won’t say another thing about that subject here!
