small old style cricket hat

Nope - mine's a leather rain/sun hat in an aussie style, and the chap in the local shop always laughs at me.

no one looks nice in these - are often the preserve of the mum who is organic and wears sensible sandals, has old style jeans and always has a rice cake

What the fark should I wear on me head then?

I have a cowboy hat grin

I knew you meant that kind before you even linked. It's the Louise Lombard look. As in House of Elliott.

And no, I don't wear one. I don't wear any hat in Summer but always do in Winter.

Aussie style one sounds okay though. Kinda edgy as opposed to drippy.

MarthaFarquhar Mon 29-Jun-09 22:42:08

I do - albeit sans embroidery grin.

iMissEdith Mon 29-Jun-09 22:42:27

And you got all that from a hat?

What are you, MysticIkeaSnakeMeg?

IkeaSnake Mon 29-Jun-09 22:42:34

I dont.
they make me look like a lamp.

chevre Mon 29-Jun-09 22:42:48

i wear this, it is a 'statement piece'

IkeaSnake Mon 29-Jun-09 22:44:10

i dont wear one.
i find they make me hotter

iMissEdith Mon 29-Jun-09 22:44:33

Please find me a summer hat that is not an upside down flower pot or a baseball cap or something that makes me look deranged.

hobbgoblin Mon 29-Jun-09 22:45:40

Indeed chevre. hmm Indeed.

The lampy kind are worn with mid shin length shapeless dresses, often in gingham.

I don't do hats, ever, not even for weddings.

Dd2 loves hats, she hands round a selection as we leave the house. In the absence of a suitable hat for me, she tries to loan me her piglet winter bobble hat.

brimfull Mon 29-Jun-09 22:47:25

they give me hat hair

and sweaty

brimfull Mon 29-Jun-09 22:47:53

MarthaFarquhar Mon 29-Jun-09 22:48:45

tbh I would be please to look like La Lombard. Mine is sadly more Richard Ashcroft.

LovelyRitaMeterMaid Mon 29-Jun-09 22:49:34

I have one like this but in a different colour and with the odd flower on it.

DollyPardonme Mon 29-Jun-09 22:51:10

OMG - Ikea I match most of your tick list apart from DH doesn't have the headphones.

I don't have one of those bucket hats though, they're just soo knit your own recycling. cowboy hat for me.

pollywobbledoodle Mon 29-Jun-09 22:54:12

oh god.....i like ikeasnake's and LOVE the 3rd of imissedith's.....however am not the right side of 45 or 12 stone and the hats would fail massively with my hot sweaty face and body under them sad
