bowled over




everything from topshop except the hat, which is h&m

as soon as i saw this hat i knew i had to have it. i'd been searching for so long for a bowler hat, and while this one is slighty bigger than the h&m ones i'd seen on other blogs, i still love it. it makes every outfit twice as interesting. i've become such a hat person lately.

i felt really good in this outfit, if i could dress like this every day i'd be happy. this is without a doubt my favourite dress ever. i've worn it in previous posts as a top and also wore it out once as a jacket. and apologies for over-wearing this jacket, but you will be seeing a lot of it in the future!

i've also been searching everywhere (online, that is) to find a new dress for a work do on friday. i would like something with a peter pan collar (can't get enough of them), but for some reason they're really hard to find. does anybody know of any amazing ones i can find online?

p.s you may notice i've dyed my hair - it's a lot darker than usual, but i'm getting used to it. it was meant to be dark brown (my natural colour) but it's come out black. eek.

  7. Great look, I'm a bit of a hat fan too!

    Peter pan collars are also my favourite thing. I just bought a cute one from ASOS, black with a white collar. Infact its practically identical to the Alexa for Madewell one... only it isn't velvet. And I saw another polkadot one from Zara.

    Hope that helps.

  17. oh you beat me to it haha. i bought the exact same hat from H&M yesterday, although im quite puzzled because you feel that yours is too big but i think mine is way too small! its teeny, much smaller than yours, maybe i just have a huge head? maybe we should swap hats? haha. Mine was the last in the shop so I couldnt compare any, i think it looks a bit silly but i wanted a bowler so much!
    Im also so jealous every time you post this dress, you look lovely in it, its so simple but you make it look amazing x

  18. oh and i completely forgot to mention that your hair looks lovely and really suits you. I know how you feel though, it always seems much darker to you than anyone else. When i went from white blonde to brown i felt like id dyed it black!x
