This is our final blog about hats, and this time we are concentrating on wedding guest hats. Anne H is attending a friend's son's wedding this year, so it seemed a good idea to style some outfits around lovely summer weddings. All the hats are from Simply Devine Hats in Tadcaster.

Although she originally planned to wear a black lace dress, she has since had second thoughts, so we may see a change when she finally attends the wedding!

The first hatinator she is wearing is in a bright pink with wonderful feathers, which make it seem larger than it actually is, since the base is quite small but the feathers add presence.

Her dress is from a previous season bought in Hobbs, with a matching black shrug.

Anne C is in a very vibrant cobalt blue sparkly hatinator delicately trimmed with feathers and diamante. Her dress is Zoe, and is currently available in the sales, from Phase Eight. She has accessorised with a crystal watch from Swarovski, bought at McArthur Glen outlet near York.

Back to Anne H with another wedding guest style, in a bright lipstick pink, trimmed with a silk flower and sparkling crin fabric. Her pearl necklace and bracelet are also from Simply Devine.

Anne C is showcasing a bright pepper red hatinator, which she is wearing with a Monsoon dress from previous season.  The pearls and earrings are also from Simply Devine.

Here's Anne H again, wearing the purple Hobbs dress with a cute little purple pillbox hatinator - just right for a wedding guest, and a perfect match to her dress.

Not sure Anne H would ever wear these two colours together  (a bit Leeds United-ish!), but the yellow hatinator certainly adds a pop of colour to the cobalt dress.

Our final pillbox is an explosion of shimmering pleated crin on a black and white pillbox hat - very much in keeping with Anne's favourite mono palette. She is wearing a black Mint Velvet lace dress, black and white shoes bought from L K Bennett at the McArthur Glen outlet, with clutch bag from Coast.

That is the last of this year's hat photoshoot, but we love the shop so much that we may go back again next year.  Look out for some of Simply Devine's wonderful creations at Royal Ascot this coming week!



  1. If you don"t mind proceed with this extraordinary work and I anticipate a greater amount of your magnificent blog entries

  2. One thing that was great about this place (and that allowed us to plan it in a short timeframe without losing our minds) was that food, alcohol and rentals are all in house so no extra vendors to deal with. Also the view from Los Angeles wedding venues was amazing!
