I really love to wear hats and I am always looking for new ones. I was lucky enough to grab this one from a friend on Facebook and it’s a perfect summer addition. I struggle sometimes with wearing hats, I feel like they are never secure enough and a gust of wind will just rip it off my head. Today was no different, the hat came with a strap that I was able to wrap under my hair and I used a hat pin. But the wind gusts were just too much and ended up walking around with my hand on my hand.

Anyway, this is my new favorite hat and I’m sure it will be worn a lot this summer.

An Autumn Day in Luxembourg

We spent the day in Luxembourg visiting the old city and having lunch with friends. Unfortunately it rained most of the day, so we didn’t get too many photos of the city. But it served as a great backdrop for this great OcTieBer outfit.

As some of you know, during the month of October a bunch of amazing sartorial friends get together and share our neckwear ensembles on a Facebook group. It’s a time of year that I look forward to for inspiration and guidance in menswear. I adore wearing menswear and have amassed quite a collection of neck ties and bow ties. I will post more of my OcTieBer outfits later in the month.

But for now, can we just talk about these amazing trousers!!!! As you know, I’m not a big fan of trousers and for the most part it’s because I’ve never found any that really truly fit me well and were comfortable. I’m much more comfortable in dresses and skirts. However, I took a chance on the new Doris Pant from Pinup Girl Clothing and I am pleasantly surprised at how much I love them. The fact that they come in plus size is, of course, a bonus for me. They are highwaisted, and have an elastic waistband in the back to ensure that there is no gapping. I did have to have them hemmed as they were quite long. I’m 5’5″ and they pooled around my ankles when I first tried them on, but I hemmed them up and now they are perfect. The pockets are a great size and placed really well. They are lined, which makes them a tad heavy, but they feel really nice and I think the heft helps them to lay right and move well.
