Meon Shore picnic

This evening, we decided to take advantage of the sunshine and go for an impromptu picnic at Meon Shore, which is about 20 minutes drive from us. First off we popped by Marks and Spencer to pick up some reduced picnic goodies, then we jumped in the car and headed off!

On the way back we stopped at a little produce stand and picked up some onions for dinner tomorrow – can’t think of a more perfect end to a lovely evening!

William Chambers for Coast

You know I love hats! So when I got a newsletter from Coast about their new collaboration with milliner William Chambers, I had to head on over to check out the collection right away…

William Chambers Coast double disc floral hat 160This is probably the most impressive offering, a delicate cascade of feathers balanced against a woven base – called the double disc floral hat, this retails for £160.

In a similar colour is the floral veiled hat, for £130.
William Chambers Coast buntal teardrop hat 100

A bit edgier, the buntal teardrop hat retails for £100, and features an animal print pattern, great with a black or white dress.

William Chambers Coast ostrich pom hat pink 150

Providing a pop of colour is the ostrich pom hat in pink, for £150. This is the only offering in the collection that doesn’t feature a neutral palette, although it’s also available in black.

By far my favourite, though, is this gorgeous side bow hat, in black!

This structured, straw hat is priced £100 and has a very Kate Middleton vibe to it…

At the moment, you have to either order these from a store, or reserve and collect them in person. Which one is your favourite?
