Bristol Fashion Favourites: Trilby and Breton stripes

1st September 2015

This hat from Bristol boutique Fox & Feather has a bit of a 1970s vibe, but I’ve mixed it with a Breton stripe and jeans for a casual work-friendly look.

The 1970s look is back for Autumn/Winter but if you don’t feel like going the whole hog with your outfit, little details like this hat can offer a subtle nod when styled with your old wardrobe staples. You might recognise this hat from my Christmas haul post – my mother-in-law picked it out and I’m so glad she did because I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of it so far.

These pics might look like a London street, but in fact they were taken in Bristol’s Queen Square as part of a blogger collab with my pal Emily from Mermaid Gossip.
