shrugging off the dust and memory

Bonjour, bloggies!

Today has marked the first day of Spring, with bright beautiful sunshine and mild temperatures for the first time in what feels like forever; so I thought, what better time to do an "outfit of the day"?

I absolutely love the 'fedora' trend that seems to be growing oh-so-rapidly. I've always been quite fond of the odd hat, and this marks one of my favourites for a long time after the recent demise of the pork pie. If there was any felt headpiece that deserved to replace it, it's the fedora!

You don't have to be a mono-glove toting, crotch grabbing megastar to wear one of these babies anymore. The fedora has been given a modern 2013 twist, making it the perfect accessory to 'March into Spring'.
What I love most about them is that they can be dressed up or down, with androgyny or outright girlyness. In other words, it's perfect for all seasons and all styles, making it a guaranteed timeless fashion investment.  



I bought mine from Miss Selfridge, on a bit of a whim a few months ago. Having been looking at Topshop's for quite some time, I decided I preferred the slightly wider brim and stiffer shape that the Miss S version offered; although the softer alternative will be a fabulous update on the boho floppy hat for Summer! 
Either way, it'll be perfect with some oversized sunglasses (which I hear are on their way back in too) once the warmer weather properly arrives.
Now that the sun is showing its glorious face, I decided to incorporate it into today's outfit especially:

Necklace: Topshop
Cami: Topshop
Shorts: Topshop
Belt: Topshop
Peeptoe heels: New Look
Fringe bag: Topshop
Bracelets: Primark/Topshop mixture

Use a fedora to tie an outfit together that's made up of girlier pieces and not-so-girly pieces, such as lace and stilettos, studs and fringing.
It really adds a little bit of something different to the outfit, and would look great with a leather jacket! I can definitely see it being a staple in my Spring/Summer wardrobe for a long time to come!

What have you got your eye on as we move into the warmer weather? Would you buy into the fedora trend?
