I thought it was about time I busted out my snazzy new Fedora. I've had it lurking for a while and haven't worn it yet but I felt my outfit was a bit snoozy today so I wanted something to add a bit of drama to the look. I love hats (as you probably all know) so this one was natural progression I suppose! I'm super happy with it! Like I said my outfit is a bit basic today, I threw on some jeans and a cardigan and that was it!  However I really need to draw attention to the fact that MY CARDIGAN HAS ELBOW PATCHES! I've always wanted a cardigan with patches on the sleeves so this instant went into my ASOS basket! I think it's so cool and slightly nerdy in a stylish way. Now that is a proper llymlrs justification right there! My Joni jean love is still going strong, Although the more I wear them the more I notice the white lines going down the side. It didn't bother me at first but it's starting to annoy me. I might take them back and exchange them… argh!

  14. love that hat, i really want one but don't know if i'm brave enough to wear it! all topshop jeans seem to strech down the side it's so annoying :( they could have at least used black thread to make it less noticable!
