It is just over a week until I will be jetting off to South Africa. Yay!
And it is going to be hot there.
And English Rose that I am I am likely to burn to a crisp within about two minutes.
So what I need is a jaunty chapeau to keep the glare from my porcelain skin.
As seems to be so often the case the main option is the trilby. I was about to go for this lovely one below from NW3 but I thought I would pop into Jigsaw on the off chance. And luck was on my side, because my fashion guardian angel whipped a few of last season's treats and a very reduced straw trilby was mine.
It is quite plain though, so I think I will find some pretty ribbon or a silk scarf to spruce it up a little.
