Loving Lover

I know I'm not alone in professing my love for down under label Lover. I swear sometimes I think they're reading my mind. It's so rare that I look at a line and love (no pun intended) every single piece but that seems to be the case with their Sacred Hearts collection. I have to admit that in my current state of mind I was a bit more drawn to their Southern Hemisphere looks with the plaid capes, little wool mini dresses and black and white oxfords. But since spring is nigh for us Northern Hemisphere dwellers the lighter looks caught my eye as well. The one thing that reaaallly stuck with me is the adorable straw boater hat that ties all the looks together.

I've become a bit addicted (in a good way, I think) to wearing hats and I was kind of wondering what I was going to do with all of my wool berets once the weather warms. After looking at the Lover lookbook the answer seems obvious. I thought finding a similar hat would be just a Google search away but I'm afraid it might be a bit more difficult than that. See, I don't want to end up walking around looking like I just joined a barbershop quartet or (worse) just walked out of a GOP convention. Hopefully they'll be offering the Lover version somewhere online. Otherwise, the treasure hunt begins!

I've just been looking at the new collection too, It's also as if they've read my mind! I have a Lover dress on layby at the moment & can't wait for the day I can pick it up.
In regards to your hat hunt, I have some like that that I sell in my boutique, they come with a stripey, coral or anchor print ribbon but it's interchangeable. You can see the hat here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/ginnyswonderful/3289098702/
