my new boater!

Dotti top, (please excuse the craziness of my hair, the weather was exceptionally odd)
What do you think of my gorgeous new boater hat from Ruby? She gave it to me on Thursday and I couldn't wait to show it off! What I love most about it is the quirkiness and that it has a detachable ribbon that can be swapped in order to match with different outfits. I got it just in time for my Spring wardrobe re-vamp. I've been collecting and making lists so I can give my wardrobe an update for the new season that's coming oh-so-soon! So far I have added some gorgeous new Peep Toe nude heels (from a fabulous sister), a blue lacey top that has vintagey charm, the boater hat and a new floral dress to my wardrobe. I bought the dress today from a small boutique in the city. It was the last one left and my exact size (and on sale!). It looks so lovely and the floral is just too pretty. Outfit post hopefully soon.

I've enjoyed my weekend a lot so far. We just arrived back home after spending the day in the city. Although I'm not too fond of car trips it was definitely worth the weariness, seeing my sister's lovely new home in the outskirts of the capital was fabulous. The house is built on a hill so it's partly underground, so it's very cool to explore the bottom level. Her bedroom is so wonderful and perfect for her studies. The best part; she's three minutes away from a huge shopping complex! 
Have a fabulous weekend!

Your new boater hat is so cute. It looks wonderful on you and a perfect addition to your spring wardrobe. I love that you can personalize it by changing the ribbon, how much fun.
Also love the editorial picture you featured in your last post, below. The image is fantastic with all the color and print. The Mary Janes are to die for too.

I adore boater hats, my head is a little too big and they never look very good on me. Such a shame :(
