there's nothing to mourn about death any more than there is to mourn about the growing of a flower

 Hat - Vintage
Jumper - 2nd hand
Shorts - H&M
Shoes - Citymarket
Bag - Mama's old

My outfit does not go with my hat at all, but don't let that bother you. My sister and I got ourselves new vintage hats and I couldn't be more excited about anything. She will probably actually wear hers more often than I will, but I do not care at all. I have always wanted to have a mourning hat with a black veil, and now I do. I think this is more like a hat for a widower as the veil is so long and there's plenty of it. It is hand-made by someone and I haven't quite figured out how best to wear it yet. But I am almost excited for someone to die, just so that I can really wear it. (I'm awful, I know.) I was trying so hard to look sad in the photos (it might be coming across as ridiculous rather than sad..), and I really like the last one. That is such a good shot by my mum! I am so in love with my wee hat. Is this something you'd ever consider wearing, or is it too far? I'm becoming too much of a hat person these days. If that even can happen, I don't think you can be too much of a hat person.

I'm also quite excited about my jumper with ice skating cats (!) but I'll try and blog about that later! This post is all about hats.
