Floppy Hat Steam Punk

When I first posted this picture on Instagram a few weeks ago, my caption read: 

' I never thought I'd see the day but today I saw that day lol! '

So what exactly did I think I'd never see? 

Quite frankly, me wearing this type of hat with this type of sunglasses. This is like the epitome of my style evolution over the past couple of years. Hats was never my thing and while I have always worn sunglasses, I would never have given this particular design a second look.

It took me long enough to take to the Floppy Hat trend though, as this trend hit the spotlight a couple of years ago already. In fact, it's always been around, but seemed to be worn at more exclusive types of events such as horse-racing. Now, however, you can pretty much wear it anywhere and style any way. It can even be worn with a pair of jeans if done correctly. More recently this trend was one of the Autumn (fall) hits so you don't even need lots of sun to wear it. It has really just become a fashion accessory.

Here's a good example of three ways to wear it. 

Casual, formal and semi-casual:

Here in fact we can see how it can be styled with your beachwear, which has always been a popular look for this hat:

As for the sunglasses, someone told me I remind them of a robot when I have it on and I was like, you are spot on. My whole intention behind getting them was to look like one of my favorite robots, who is none other than Star Wars very own, 


Say whaaat ???

I got my pair at Edgars but you can also find them on ebay here.

So there you go. If you're just not that into hats, try it on. You may just fall for it.
