What I Bought: Bowler Hat


quite quaint bowler hat
Blouse: Topshop  |  Cardigan: Primark  |  Hat: H&M

I've been searching for a bowler hat for what feels like forever, so when I saw this one, sitting all by itself in H&M I took it straight to the till. Since buying it last week, I've seen the same one on about 5 other blogs! I don't know if I just have a giant head or if they varied in size, because this was the last one in the shop, but I feel like it's a bit small for my head! 

You might start to notice soon, that all I want to wear right now is shorts, there's so many nice pairs in Zara at the mo, lots of corduroy and tweed ones I've got my eye on. I'm sticking to tights from now on though, far too chilly for me to be bare legged, I'm always cold! I've had a bit of a tightmare (sorry) recently though, the last 2 nights out I've been on, I managed to make a huge hole in my tights - and this was way before the drink kicked in, so I can't blame that. So I have a pretty expensive tights habit right now. Anyone else having the same problem with their 15 derniers or is it just me?

  17. Lovely outfit, you really suit that hat! :)

    Can't offer much help with the 15 deniers, I only really wear 80 plus.

  18. I feel like I am constantly searching for a pair of shorts that will look decent with tights. Its so hard for me! I love the hat on you, I've never had any luck with H&M haps that weren't stretchy or floppy, maybe if you wear it enough it will mold to your head. ps-good tights are so hard to find. thanks for your sweet comments, that raccoon came out again last night. Maybe my car is the new hotspot for wildlife ;)

  19. AMAZING shoes. Love the the bowler hat, too, it really suits you. I've tried it on in H&M, and have to agree about the size - I think they're a bit small! Either that or we've got freakishly large heads? x

  22. Gorgeous outfit, I'm just in love with this combination. Being a fellow Cambridge blogger, I'm always very envious when you say "the last one in the shop", hopefully they will restock this hat soon!

  25. ah yes, you're wearing your bowler hat too! isn't it wonderful! you're right though, yours does look smaller than mine.. mine did say size L on it, but it fits fine.. i'm starting to worry i have a massive head.

    anyway, those are great boots! and you have the best hair, i'm still fretting about mine being too dark! but thank you for all your sweet comments.

  28. Thanks for your comment :) I posted a link to a much cheaper headband at Asos for you.

    I love your hat, I saw it in H&M after i'd been looking for one for ages too! They come in different sizes if it's the same as mine!

  29. I totally agree about loving shorts right now!
    Bad timing because ive lived in skirts all summer and now is really a time for jeans. But i keep on wanting to spend vast quantities of money on lush suede shorts from topshop!!! :O
    Lovely blog, now following.

  30. Why are you jealous of my hair when your hair is absolutely beautiful! If I was wearing a bowler hat my hair would be sticking out all over the place hahaha definitely wouldn't be as pretty as your wispy curls and bangs :D

    and those boots are wonderful, wonderful and cosy-looking... something that I definitely needed this passing winter :(
