When I pulled this dress out to wear I was thinking about accessorising with pink for a change. But the latest addition to my growing collection of cherry hats arrived the other day (PS, Mark, Matin already knows so you can't dob me in!), so I decided to give that a spin (ok so it's a re-run of Saturday's theme, but who says you can't do cherries and checks twice in one week?). It's a Mr. John Jr toque with celluloid cherries, leaves, blossoms and velvet bows all around the brim. Because it's a junior hat it's actually too small even for my little head, so after playing around with tilting it this way and that I bundled my hair up into a sort of chignon thing and pinned the hat over it. I'm rather pleased - I think it's got a sort of Switzerland / Heidi look about it.
Because of the super bright sunshine (check out that blue sky!) my outdoor outfit photos came up ultra contrasty, so I took a couple of indoor ones too so you can see the hat a bit better.
