Just when I thought that Spring was really here and it was safe to start planning my Summer wardrobe, Winter hit back with an icy bite. Earlier this week I pinned my favourite Summer looks on Pinterest which btw, I totally love - I was never very good at Tumblr but I'm good at Pinterest so if you want to see all the silly things that I like you can follow me on there. My mind was on Summer... chambray, bicycle rides, straw hats and picnics with ice tea.
Needless to say, I was delighted when I found this straw boater in Oxfam though a little less delighted at the price tag - £14.99. When did charity shopping become so expensive? However, my friend pointed out that it would be twice that from Topshop and there was no way that I was letting a vintage boater pass me by so I bought it and I'm very glad that I did. Expect to see alot more of it from now on.
I had, albeit a little prematurely, planned to wear it with a sheer blouse and light mac but Mother Nature choose to send a gust of icy wind in our direction and it was far too chilly that sort of frippery so instead I choose this dress from Zara. If in doubt, just dress a bit like Alexa Chung, right?
P.S. Jessie was so kind as to name SGAPFF, Blog of the Month on her own beautiful The Velvet Bow. If you don't already read it, then you should check it out now. I promise that you won't be disappointed.
