hearts and hats


Excuse my silly happy face, I am wearing a hat...that all i really need to say about this outfit. Still not entirely sure on it, but why not. I thought I would be a little bit more adventurous I never wear hats for fear of my rather round face. I wore this outfit to the cinema last saturday when I was down in Swansea the skirt is super flattering from H&M and now my go to piece when I want to add a little bit of a girly twist to my outfits. I picked the bowler style hat up from h&m for a reduced price of one pound due to someone taking the ribbon off, I do like a good bargain. The top was a quick purchase from New-look it as beautiful little white hearts, I'm a little bit in love. Even after chopping lots of hair off my hair still appears to be slightly wonky, i think its my undercut with less hair on my right side these photos made me laugh a lot. I think I might now be on the perfect hat hunt

So today is Sunday whilst the men of my family are working hard sorting our allotment out I am baking a big cake for pudding, after finding out I've lost a little bit more weight, I am going to eat so much cake in celebration that I might just explode. I think I am going to go for a victoria sponge with my famous vanilla icing. I hope I don't devour it all by six o'clock tonight...I can't promise anything. 

As I write this, there is a lot of sun filling my room, makes me so excited for the summer, is anyone else really desperate to see the sun? I am yet to set any summer plans, I am hoping to take a little summer adventure back down to cornwall for a few weeks, and maybe make another little trip to italy or somewhere a little more exotic then london. As for festivals, anything is possible just not Glastonbury...what are your plans? I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for the lovely words on yesterdays post simple. Ella can now be found over on facebook, exciting stuff hey?!

  14. Ooh i love this outfit and i think you really suit the hat. i love hats but dont think i suit them that much, i dont know if i actually have a really big head or if i just have enormous hair but either way hats always seem to fall off my head at the most inappropiate times and i have to do that whole awkward thing of, 'oops my hats fallen on the ground let me just pick it up and try and place it on my head without a mirror' thing! Love your hair too its so pretty x

  25. Are you getting used to your hair now? I's so lovely! I didn't get a Glasto ticket and was going to have to try for resale in April, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I'm now back studying when it's on and wouldn't have been able to go anyway!
