The Bridport Hat Festival

The streets of my home town in West Dorset were packed yesterday for the fifth annual Bridport Hat festival. Once again there was a wonderful atmosphere as thousands of mad hatters donned an array of caps, bowlers, trilbies and crazy home made creations to take part is this fabulously original family charity event.

I couldn't wait to wear my classic fedora hat from Hush, which I'm planning to wear a lot this autumn/winter:


Fedora - Hush (available here)
Cardigan - Part Two (SS13)
T-Shirt - Great Plains at Yard (AW14)
Black Jeans - Mint Velvet (AW13)
Flats - New Look (AW14 - Sold Out)

And I made the boys wear their skull printed trilbies from Fat Face (available here):


And here is the traditional mass hat-wearing photo call in Bucky Doo Square:


Do you love wearing hats? What is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!
