My Love For Hats

My Love For Different Style Hats

I never used to be a huge fan of hats when I was younger, but as I’ve grown older and my style has evolved a lot, I’ve definitely become a lot more fond of them. You could say that I have quite a large hat collection now, ranging from floppy and fedora hats to beanies and bobble hats, all perfect for different occasions and different weather. I thought it might be a good idea to share with you a post on my favourite hats that I own and how different they can make my face or outfit look when I wear them.

I would say that my all time favourite hats would have to be my burgundy wide brim hat which is very vintage inspired and my beige one in a similar fit (above) as it’s so versatile. These two hats always give a touch of elegance and a retro vibe to my outfits when I wear them, plus they suit my face shape extremely well, which is something you definitely have to look out for with hats. I’ve got a huge collection of beanie and Winter style hats which I live in when it’s cold out, but not only do they help hide your hair from a bad hair day in the Winter, they keep your body heat in which is important. I’ve got almost every colour beanie or bobble hat that you can imagine, even one with Captain America on it for my nerdy self! But my favourite one would be the cream/white fleece beanie from Topshop.

For me and hats, it generally used to be the more colourful and quirky they were, the more I would be into them, much like the stripey or printed beanie hats that I’ve owned for quite a few years. However, I know now that I always tend to opt for the plain and neutral coloured hats with a more versatile fit and cut to them as it means I can wear them with many more outfits and they can blend in rather than be the focal point of the entire outfit. I think hats for me now are more of an accompaniment than a focal point. I’ve included 11 of my favourite hats here that I wear frequently and love. I’d love to know what your favourite hat of mine is and if you have any of your own favourites?

The Brown Leather Biker Jacket

The Brown Leather Biker Jacket With Jeans

I wanted to start off by saying that I really hope everyone in Wales and the South West where I am are ok. Storm Imogen that we had was absolutely awful and even though I am fine, I know a lot of people aren’t. I know many places have been flooded, trees have landed on cars, debris and things have smashed windows, people lost electricity and some even lost roofs! Bridges were closed, boats were cancelled and a guy even lost his life being blown off a cliff into the sea, so sad. I’ve never actually been in the middle of a proper storm like that one before and I was terrified. I barely slept all through the night due to the house shaking and being scared of the wind, which in turn made me really ill these past few days. I’m really happy that it’s passed over now and things are looking a lot brighter. Definitely an awful 24 hours though.

Getting to my outfit though, I was wearing my new All Saints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket in Sahara which I layered over my Oasis The Perfect Crew in Brown. I paired both of these with my trusty Citizens of Humanity Skinny Jeans in Aura and then tucked them into my Seven Boot Lane boots. Since I wanted to add some colour to the outfit, I went with a pop of yellow with my Cambridge Satchel Mini Bag. This was my first time wearing the jacket out since the weather had decided to be ok on this day (a couple of weekends ago). I honestly can’t wait for it to warm up a bit more and stop raining so that I can wear my leather jackets more regularly. Anyway, what do you think of my outfit?

Valentines Day Jewellery From Pandora & Swarovski

Valentine’s Day Jewellery With Pandora & Swarovski

I’m super excited to bring to you my next collaboration with jewellery company, John Greed. I’ve really enjoyed working with this company as not only are they super friendly and amazing, but they have such a fantastic collection of jewellery which is perfect for every day as well as occasions. For this feature, I chose three items which are ideal for Valentine’s Day and showcased them in a pink, romantic way. I know these will work really well for those of you who are still looking to get a gift for your ladies!

So what did I choose? I first opted for this gorgeous Pandora Valentine’s Heart Beat Charm which I added to a silver chain as a necklace instead of putting it on the classic charm bracelet. It’s dainty and looks like a pretty piece of candy around my neck, which I love. The second item I chose was the Swarovski Stardust Pink Bracelet as I’ve loved this one for many months. You might remember the blue version I shared with you at Christmas, but the pink one is just right for Valentine’s Day. I love the netted tube as it’s filled with their fuchsia crystals, giving it that dazzling sparkle. It can also act as a necklace too if you want to wear it that way. Finally, to round things off, I chose the Pandora Daisy Flower Ring which just added a cute and girly element to the look. Flowers are always a prominent Valentine’s Day present, so instead of roses, I went with a daisy to mix it up.

Combining all of these jewellery pieces from Pandora and Swarovski together makes Valentine’s Day seem all that much more real. I adore anything sparkly, girly and pretty, so I’m sure you can see why I chose these three pieces! John Greed also have a great sale on this Valentine’s gift set if these items are over budget or not really your style, so you should definitely check that one out. I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day! You might also want to take a look at my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide which I published a couple of days ago as I think there will be some perfect gifts on there too. I’d love to know what you think of my jewellery from John Greed here and what you are planning on getting for Valentine’s?

Fashion Blogger’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day will be here next Sunday and I’m quite excited! It’s one of my favourite times of the year actually as I love being able to celebrate love. You could say that I love love and I love anything romantic, so a day dedicated to it is fantastic. Not to say you shouldn’t show your love for your friends, family and partners any other day of the year, of course you should, but it’s nice to have a day to display it and for those shy people to maybe use it as an excuse to make a move they wouldn’t usually feel confident enough to do. So, it’s definitely a day worth celebrating. Even if you don’t have a partner to share it with, that doesn’t mean for one second that you can’t share it with the girls and have a cosy night in, maybe even buy each other a gift too!

For February’s Currently Craving post, I’ve decided to turn it into a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide which has lots of cute, romantic, pink and red items on it, perfect for any girl. I’ve done a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide every year actually, usually making lots of collages with multiple items in, however for this years version, I decided to include a collage dedicated entirely to bags (love this card case here) and one for miscellaneous pieces like jewellery, lingerie, candles and make-up, ideal for everyone. I even have an interactive photo collage below too.

I have that Pandora heart charm above and I have a very special post coming up on the 7th dedicated to that, I know you will love it. Adam has also purchased me that little Links of London ring charm for me to wear on a necklace as my gift. I know that so many of us wouldn’t say no to these bags, purses and other pieces though. I wouldn’t! So for my male readers, I hope this serves as some inspiration for the perfect gift for your girlfriend/fiancee/wife and for the ladies looking to shop for the guys, check out the gift section on East Dane, ASOS and Urban Outfitters, they have some great things! Which items do you love in my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide the most? I’d love to know!
