Today I went shopping with my mum, hoping to find some good deals in the sales. However, I came across a bit of a problem where as I didn’t like what was in the sale but loved everything that wasn’t reduced. This tends to happen to me. Maybe it’s because I’m not that bothered about rummaging around all of the messy shelves, or I’ve bought everything I have wanted last season – which is normally the case, then I see it reduced to half price in the sale and it does break my heart a little bit.
But today I found one item in the sale that I do really love.
You will know by now that I am a little bit obsessed with hats. Bobble hats, Bowlers, Davy Crocketts… You name the hat, and I will probably have one. But this is something that I haven’t got and have been meaning to purchase for a long time.
I have never known this type of hat to be called a Bear Trapper before! I thought it was a Russian or Deer Stalker hat but this is what TopShop has it down as and so I’m going with it.
Today I got a Bear Trapper and oh my, it is so cosy! I know we will soon be heading into spring but I feel like when you live in the North you can get away with wearing hats right up until August, and even then it’s still acceptable!
This was from TopShop, in the sale at £5 – I mean you couldn’t even do better at Primark, right?
I think it is absolutely adorable and would go with any colour hair/complexion – which I must consider at the moment as I’m planning on dying my hair !!Scary!!
I got some really nice long length jumpers today, which I’m hoping to wear with this hat and some over the knee socks.
I must say though, if you have 36 inch legs, it is very hard to find over the knee socks and these literally just come to the right place. I could possibly do with them being a little bit longer so I could maybe fold the tops down, but for £3 from Primark they’re great and are super comfy.
If you’d like to purchase the hat you can still get it in the sale online here.
Please let me know what you think of my find… and if you’ve also found something cute in the sale.
