The right hat .


Choosing the right hat can be difficult. A woman I saw this weekend had gone for a huge white angora beret .....not perhaps the best choice when you're over seventy and rather pale . On the other hand black can look a little severe .
Flowers round the crown can be flattering . Flowers under the brim are girlish and sweet .
But if you're gloriously plump , young and cute unadorned squashed straw is the best look of all .

Oh, bring back squashed straw hats!

I have just been having a grand time visiting your blog. It's been a bit like coming home - only in a previous lifetime where long periods were spent in Den Haag, Delft and London. You have made me all nostalgic for grumpy London busdrivers and a warme chocolademelk met slagroom.

But how to cope with hat hair?! Does one leave one's hat on indoors or head straight for the bathroom to fluff? I think these ladies' hats were sewn onto their heads at birth. Nice one! xx
