Vintage Dotty Dress and a Summer Trilby

vintage dotty dress and summer

Do you wear hats in summer? vintage dotty dress and summer trilby
I’m wearing one of my favourites today.
A compact summer trilby.

This particular one is a gent’s hat.
I need to buy my hats from the men’s department because ladies hats are always too small.
They perch on top of my head in a comedic style.

It can be annoying, especially when the gent’s hats are mostly sombre and the ladies versions have much more colour!

Having said that, gent’s hats are often better quality.

Why is that?
I’m not sure.
I think it’s often true with gent’s clothes too.
Maybe the men in our lives don’t accept poor quality and therefore it doesn’t sell?

I’d love to know your thoughts on that!

This trilby is a gent’s XL… yep… an extra large.

My huge baw heid (Translation: Head like a large ball) takes a lot of covering!

I’m wearing my hat with a cute spotty dress that may (or may not) be vintage.

I’m not sure.

If you recognise it please let me know where it’s from!

This outfit needs no other accessories because each of the elements has plenty going on!
