The BAKER BOY

Do you ever try on a hat and as soon as you take it off your outfit just feels...lacking? It happened to me with this very outfit. I wore it out but then tried on a baker boy and had to buy it because my look just wasn't as good without it.
Baker boy's have been doing the rounds, especially on blogs, for the last couple of years so they’re nothing new. Personally, I've struggled to find one that fitted my head...apparently it's rather large. I also wanted a minimal homage to the baker boy without all the bells and whistles. This one trades in the metal hardware for covered buttons in the same fabric as the main hat which softens the overall appearance.
Pairing this cosy knit with a Summer skirt and opaque black tights is the perfect way to squeeze the most out of those Summer clothes if you’re not up for doing the whole capsule wardrobe t​hing. I love the contrast between the feminine floral skirt and the chunky black boots which have a minimal yet masculine vibe. As someone who was never really into bags, styling has taught me the importance and power of having the right one with each look. Being able to switch up accessories brings vibrance and a point of different to wardrobe basics as well as elevating day looks into the evening. This wallet on a chain style is a real suede option I love for the overall style as well as the size as it stops me filling it with junk I don't need - although, currently there are four different lipsticks in it. For me, this outfit is perfect for those bright, cold days where you can throw on a denim jacket, a scarf and a pair of sunglasses; ready for a coffee and cinnamon bun run... @stylecompanion www.thestylecompanion.com  Image credit Kirsty McLachlan
