I’m a hat girl all the way, and if I’m given a chance to own an actual Indiana Jones hat, I’ll take it.
[Reading time: 3 minutes]
A day rarely goes by in the colder months when I don’t wear a hat, whether that’s a woolly hat, fedora or beret – see what I mean when you look at all my outfits). I now have the ultimate hat, one of the most well-known styles associated with a person or character that I can think of.
The wool felt Traveller hat* is the specific fedora style worn by Indy himself, and mine was a gift from French hat makers Bon Clic Bon Genre. It was totally customisable, from the hat style (of which they have dozens) to the colour, hat size and colour/style of band. I even have a label inside with my blog name on it. The quality was stunning, so I can highly recommend this brand if you’re after a colour in a particular style and in your size.
I chose the colour nearest to the one he wore (yes, I even Googled it), but I did add an optional feather just to make it a bit more mine. I didn’t have any green hats, and thought my hat collection was somewhat lacking one – it was, until now.
And what should I wear it with? Lots of winter layers, in contrasting shades of red, orange and burgundy.

SHOP THE LOOK:
The platform brogues are making their second appearance after their debut last month, and I’m obsessed with wearing patterned tights with them. Adds a bit more drama than plain socks or a bare ankle can muster.
After last week’s post showing off my greatest photographic moments of the 2010s – and feeling a little sad that our photography has got stuck in a bit of a rut lately (usually due to lack of time and the shoot being rushed) – I thought we’d try something a bit different. I went through magazines and fashion photography books for inspiration and we talked ideas.
We ended up going for a few more abstract images, a little black and white, a bit of deliberate motion blur. I’m as much about creating something beautiful to look at (in terms of imagery I mean, not just my ugly mug! 😉 ) so creativity and design are just as important to me as what I’m actually wearing is.
If you were to design your perfect hat what exactly would you choose? Would you go for something from the movies like I did (Bonnie and Clyde? A Fistful of Dollars? Annie Hall? Breakfast at Tiffany’s)? And – thoughts on the images we’ve taken? Comment below…
