Dress? Thrifted Hat? Ophelie hats Sandals? DvF Clutch? Thrifted

I wore pretty much this exact outfit about 3 years ago here. The classic wool dress, the eye-catching hat completed by some black accessories... You know, it's fun to shake it up and try new trends but if it's good, it's just good. And that's how I feel about this outfit; it's good.

And if you have been following me for over three years now (thank you muchly...), I don't want you to think I am recycling content. I've spent the last three years making changes. I've worked hard at growing those few extra inches of my hair (no joke, painfully slow... that is 3 years worth of growth), I've since mastered a fairly decent cat-eye and I've upgraded to using coloured walls for blog backgrounds as often as I can. But let's be honest, the extra hair length, cat eyes and purple walls aren't needed with this hat. Because if it's good, it's just good.

Lovely hat, how very elegant and ladylike. I love the way you paired it, Yen (can I call you that?). You should do a vintage era-inspired post with the hat! I'd definitely love to see that!

You look lovely, and although all the elements of your outfit are perfectly balanced, I still can't seem to take my eyes off that gorgeous hat. Stunning!!
