Mad Hatter

I want a hat for summer.  Preferably a straw one, with some sort of brim.  Simon has a hand-woven straw hat like this, but it's an expensive collector's piece, so obviously I won't be borrowing that.

The hat-interest was sparked after the Beaufort Street Festival, where there were plenty of trendy hats abound.


Yup, even that dog has a trendier hat than me.  

Some temple-topping options:

Perhaps a classic fedora?

Or a floppy wide-brim?

Perhaps I should substitute a hat with a parasol?
Perhaps not, for the chance of looking like an absolute fob with an umbrella is very high.

Perhaps a cute boater?
This one is my favourite!

Alas, for now I'll have to stick to a dorky cap à la Dad until I find a woven-straw solution to my sun problems.  


Any suggestions, kind readers?

  2. No suggestions but good luck! It's so hard to find a good hat, I look ridiculous in most of them. Positive hat finding thoughts are going your way :)

  7. Two words for you. Op shops. They always have tonnnnns of straw hats at this time of year in all shapes and sizes. Also, I have quite a cute one that I was going to sell but you can just have it if you like. Let me know on twitter if you're coming to the blogger xmas do this Sunday and I can bring it! xx
