Surprisingly this morning was freezing and the day has been quite cold. After wearing florals and whites all weekend, the weather called for change and so I donned my winter blacks to uni. Kind of contradictory given the fact that boater hats were informally known as the Warm-Weather Hat in the days when it was customary for all men to wear hats outdoors. Anywho this was the result.

I've found myself to be quite obsessed with boater hats recently and after waiting months to find the perfect one online, I finally purchased this one for around $AU14 including postage off Etsy. My best friend found a great hat in an op-shop when we were on a road trip down in Byron Bay recently but it has a pink ribbon and needs a bit of re-shaping. I can't wait to add more to my collection.
