Thrift Style Thursday: Sunhat on a Cloudy Day

If any of my neighbours happened to be peering into my backyard while these photos were being taken, they would have thought me crazy. It was far too cloudy to be wearing a sunhat. But sometimes we bloggers sacrifice our dignity and live in a world of irony to make sure our photos are done, deadlines are met, and posts get up on time. 

On that note, it is important to mention that this hat wasn't actually thrifted. It was purchased at one of those cottage country farmers market outlets last summer during a family vacation. I've actually never thrifted a hat. After having lice as a child, thrifting hats became one of those things I could just never bring myself to do. Props to those who can. You are more brave than I will ever be. 

That being said, I am all about the floppy hats for the summer. I've never been much of a fan of fedoras, and baseball caps are generally reserved for work related purposes or seldomly played sports. But not floppy hats. They remind me of the garden hats my Grandma used to have. These hats would hang on hooks just beside the door that led outside, and my sister and I would wear them - along with Grandma's shoes - during the summer months. Floppy sunhats are a part of my past and have found a way into my future aesthetic ... I'm all about the vintage feel and gardening. 

Even (especially) in a world of cloudy days and irony.

  1. Oh my gosh, I loooooooove that dress and the print! What a great thrift find! I have a big sun hat, but it doesn't suit me at all. I wish hats looked better on me. It suits you!

    1. I find that sunhats only work on me when I keep my hair down... something about flowing locks, maybe? Either way... Thanks for stopping by, Wendy! xx

  2. I love this! Your dress is absolutely adorable and perfect for summer and I am seriously coveting that shirt! I love the idea of wearing a button down shirt over a dress like a lightweight cardigan, I gotta try that! Oh, and let's not forget the floppy sunhat - love it! Great post!!! :)

    1. Thanks! I actually started using the button up shirt as a cardigan style shirt because, while the length and shoulders fit right, I'm a tad too endowed for the buttons to actually do up... haha! Glad you like it!

  3. Hahaha I totally understand worrying about the neighbors looking over and thinking I'm a weirdo, but who cares, right?! Even though it was a cloudy day, this outfit is still fabulous! I definitely need another floppy hat after seeing you in yours!

  4. I love your hat! The leopard print is so cute and I love the pattern mixing of that with your adorable dress. I totally get what you say about the neighbors seeing you take the pics. I live in a townhouse complex and most of the time I can get my pics in without anyone coming or going, but sometimes I have to step aside and wait for them to drive by and I just have to laugh at what they are probably thinking. :)
