Is age just another number?

Hatwalk 7 – August 2015

on August 1, 2015

Hello again

It’s August 1st and time for another Hat Attack run by the hat loving Judith Boyd, so I thought I’d show you a hat I wear during the warm weather – yes,  a sun hat!


Here in the UK we had some really warm weather in July, but lately it’s been a bit mixed; we’ve had some sun but also had a lot of cloudy, rainy days.  And today I went out into my garden quite early, sniffed the air, and said to myself, ‘I can smell Autumn’, as there was quite a chilly feel to the morning.


But I did wear this hat out and about during the hot July weather.  It’s not a charity shop hat, but one bought from Peacocks over four years ago for the huge sum of £3.99, and still going strong. I love it as it has a big floppy brim that suits my face.


Mind you, perhaps I should show you a hat I will be wearing soon.  I’m going to the Faroe Islands on a cruise and have been looking at the long-range weather forecasts.  I’m sure you all know that the Faroes are above the Shetland and Orkney Islands (where I shall also be going) and below Iceland.  And the weather!  Apparently you can get all four seasons in one day.  Temperatures on the day we visit may be anything from 9-13C (that’s 48-55F) and rain is expected so I’m taking a stylish and waterproof rain hat! I’ll feature it next month.

In the meantime, I’m off into the garden today as the sun is shining.

That’s all for now

    That’s a lovely floppy hat, and I like the spotty top too!

  2. Thank you Maddy! Had the top for years now – it’s going a bit pilly, sighs

    Those floppy summer hats are classic. Love the wavy rim, don’t you? Enjoy the warm weather while you can!

    Your hat is outstanding! I adore the floppy brim and how you wear it with such style. Thank you so much for sharing with Hat Attack!

    • Thank you so much for saying the hat is outstanding! I really love it and wear it whenever I can. Yes, hats are not worn all that much in the UK (apart that is from woolly hats in the winter) just in a few cities. I simply love Hat Attack and meeting other hat-loving women. So a very big thank you to you for setting Hat Attack up!
