    Vintage finds: how I style them

    So, recently (ok, by recently, I mean yesterday- Friday) I purchased my very first hat in like forever. I cannot tell you just how excited I am to own this accessory. My hat was purchased from the line of vintage charity shops owned by the designer Mary Portas. You can find her shops by clicking here– they are such a find and I was super lucky to find such a steal!

    Confession: my Baker Boy Hat was donated by Millie Mackintosh (I was fan-girling way too hard because Made In Chelsea is my guilty pleasure!!). The hat is originally from the brand Eugenia Kim and you can purchase it here.

    I have literally not stopped wearing it since I brought it yesterday- but, I mean it’s understandable why right? I think that it is such an understated accessory; it can really spice up your outfit.

    I styled this hat with a vintage red Just Cavalli top I found in a shop on the Kings Road (it’s called YMCA and it is amazing!), my Urban Outfitters striped culottes (I’m not sure they are available but you can find some similar ones here and here) and my Stan Smith Bold sneakers.

    I know, that this outfit is borderline “winter”. However, the turtle neck I have on, is pretty thin and is great for wearing under a jacket like this one from Whistles. I love this jacket, it is perfect for colder London days. My sunglasses are from Urban Outfitters and were featured in my Festival favourites.

    I think it is so important to continue to experiment with your style. I am constantly changing up my style through the use of accessories, jewellery and different pieces. The earrings I am wearing are from Forever 21, but they are old so I found another pair similar here.
