Something old, something new

There’s something you need to know about me; I have a thing for hats. Whether it’s to finish off an outfit, keep my head warm on one of those windy Melbourne days, or simply hide a bad hair day, I love them all year round. But despite my love for hats , I only recently purchased my first floppy fedora. And I must admit, styling it was not as easy as I thought! But after experimenting with some looks, I realised that I was styling it all wrong; rather than making it the star of the outfit, I needed to pair it with another accessory that would help balance the look rather than letting the hat take over.

Enter The Bag.

I’m talking about my prized Alexander Wang Marion bag that I purchased a few years ago from Green With Envy. Even though I love this bag, due to my tendency to overpack I don’t use it as much as I would like. However when I unearthed it from my wardrobe recently, I discovered it went perfectly with my new hat. And of course, photos ensued (thanks Instagram husband)! I love this look for winter, and I will definitely be making the most of these two items in the coming months.
