Outfit of the Day: Acid Wash Jeans and H&M Pork Pie Hat


This is an outfit I wore to work a couple of days ago and you may have seen Claire’s shocked tweet about my hat wearing adventures. Thankfully we work in an office where we don’t have to dress particularly smart, so outfit choices in the morning can either be tragic (like the day I wore double denim and didn’t straighten my hair) or a bit more fun. I’m putting this into the a bit more fun category and its one that I’m quite pleased with casual-wise. While, I got a few ‘…you’re wearing a hat’ comments throughout the day and one of the guys put it on and looked like a Victorian mill owner, on the whole I AM SOLD ON THE HAT THING. I can’t wait to invest in a few more when Autumn/Winter arrives.

Something vaguely unheard of happened too. Hold onto your horses, friends.

ONLY ONE ITEM OF THIS OUTFIT IS FROM PRIMARK. Yes. I know. I hope none of you have fainted in shock.


My jeans are from Topshop, my top is quite old but also from Topshop, my shoes are from New Look, the hat is from H&M and my necklace is the offending Primark item. My fringe is also really gappy, I am sorry.




I also went to a wine and spirit tasting evening at Selfridge’s after work on Thursday, which was HUGELY fun and I accidentally got quite drunk from all of the fabbbbbulous wines, champagnes and other exciting things on offer (I didn’t munch shamelessly on free cupcakes. At all). I ended up wearing this outfit there too, mostly because I didn’t have time to change before getting the train into Birmingham. ALAS TRAGEDY OCCURRED. I went to the pub for dinner after the wine tasting and left my hat there. I am the true definition of an idiot. The pub is called the Lost and Found, so I’m hoping it will reappear.
