Print was definitely needed today to pick me up from a mid-week slump and I find the easiest way to do this, especially when I have to get ready quick, is sticking to one block piece of pattern. Also, when I am that busy in the morning that I forget to turn my straighteners off (it happened on Monday), a hat is definitely a must, and probably more for the fire safety in my case! Although I enjoy wearing hats, in general I think Fedora's are up there (don't ask where there is, but its good, almost on par with love, but we all know that the word love is a very over used in blogging so I'm going to use there and now I have started rambling... 1,2,3... and I am back in the post)!  I feel Fedora's add a certain amount of sophistication to an outfit, this is probably due to the structure, beanies just feel casual, because, well, they're slouchy and lack structure. Dress any outfit with a beanie and it feels causal, you can put all the net you want at the front and pretend its a fascinator, but its still essentially a beanie! The hat I am wearing today is from Ark and, like I have mentioned in a previous post here its a real bargain and you will probably be seeing it a lot more, especially as we get closer to summer.
Also, I apologize for the cropped pictures. My mum took them for me and it would appear she is a cliche parent and is unable to use a camera. Honestly in some of the pictures I am not sure if she was trying to drop hints that she was bored or that I don't photograph well, as they were mainly of the wall behind me and when I say mainly, you can literally only see my elbow... I always knew it was my best feature.
