After blogging about summer hats last month i set my sights on making sure I found the perfect one for my summer in Dublin I found a super cheap one in Claire’s Accessories on Westmoreland Street that was in the sale for €7! I didn’t like the trim around it though but I came up with the perfect solution… I raided the tie rack at the Irish Cancer Society shop on Camden Street Lower and found a silk blue and beige stripey tie. Very boating chic. I removed the bland band from the Trilby, tied a bow in the tie, wrapped it around the hat and stitched it in place. Result; new chic summer headwear, perfect for festival or regatta alike!
