The Romantic in me has always loved straw hats. Much to my delight, their popularity in recent months has led to an influx of affordable hats in both high street shops as well as novelty seaside shops. I'm currently on my third straw hat and decided to customize this one to make it extra special. They're never accessorized exactly how I want them to be anyway.
I purchased this particular straw hat in Whitstable for a few pounds. I wanted to decorate it with blue and found a hair grip with a blue corsage which was sitting undeservedly forgotten and unloved in a box, so I dismantled that. The ribbon was a few pence from C&H Fabrics.
I can see myself wearing this hat even in the coldest depths of winter.
