Easter bonnet style – Weekly Wishlist

Remember making Easter bonnets? How much fun was that? Make one if you like this Easter, but you might look a wee bit odd wandering about with a crepe paper and fake flower bonnet on. It’s not the Easter bonnet style we’re looking for.

Here’s how to get some proper Easter bonnet style – buy a hat! Hats are a great invention – they look fab, and they protect your head from the elements – rain and sun. (There are issues in the wind, but that’s for another day).

So, what would be your Easter bonnet style? A straw hat is a holiday musthave, agreed? Also great for festivals, and impromptu days in the park when the sun shines. That will happen, you know we’re right!

So, maybe a straw hat with some shells and feathers is your Easter bonnet style – find one at New Look for £12.99. Maybe Mantaray @ Debenhams‘ blue stone trimmed trilby (£14) is more your style? Or French Connection’s two toned large rimmed floppy version (£55)

BHS’s tan and cream stripy sunhat (£12) is cute Easter bonnet style. And Louche @ JOY’s straw boater (£15) is schooldays perfection!

Big 1970s inspired floppy hats are perfect for keeping those rays off your face – and pulling that 1970s look together. This fab black and white version is from Principles by Ben De Lisi @ Debenhams (£22). But we adore the Easter yellow trimmed version at JOY (£18).

H&M’s navy straw floppy (£9.99) is perfect if you prefer the darker shade of bonnet, as is GAP’s trilby (£19.95).

We love J by Jasper Conran’s monochrome Panama style hat at Debenhams (£22), and White Stuff’s trimmed trilby is a perfect hat for spring (£22.50).

Wool hats are perfect for spring and the end of summer. H&M’s tan felted hat is 100% wool (£14.99), as is their cute plum boater (£9.99).

Take things back to the 1990s with New Look’s daisy print bucket hat (£7.99) and their simple grey cap (£7.99).

What’s your Easter bonnet style?

Easter Treats – Weekly Wishlist

Easter Treats! Yay. Chocolate! Or not. Yes, dear readers, there’s not a chocolate amongst our Easter treats Weekly Wishlist – but there are loads of other lovely Easter goodies!

Who needs another egg – who’s not been eating creme eggs since January anyway?! We thought we’d bring you a host of different Easter treats! Treats for kids and big kids. Easter treats you can wear, some you can make, some you can eat. Perfect as gifts, and perfect as a little, well, treat for yourself!

Bunnies are synonymous with Easter. We love the Easter bunny in all its guises! It features heavily on our Easter Treats Weekly Wishlist. Little bunny ears are so cute, agreed? Find them in packs of six at White Stuff for £5.95. Maybe BHS’s lovely bunny cushion (£12) would make a great egg-alternative gift?

Build-A-Bear’s Happy Easter Chocolate Bunny (£34) looks good enough to eat – but don’t! H&M’s bunny keyring is super-cute! And if you really want to have a laugh this Easter, head to Claire’s Accessories for some funny bunny glasses!(£6)

If you want a sophistication with your Easter treat, then you’ll want the lovely Eve & FOx gold running rabbit necklace from JOY.

Chicks are another Easter favourite – send them on a cute card from Marks & Spencer (£2), or wear them in your ears with these stud earrings from Claire’s Accessories (£3.50).

Who remembers making Easter bonnets at school? We suggest you wear this beautiful navy and white cloche style from Top Hat by Stephen Jones @ Debenhams (£80) rather than one of the homemade variety, though.

Easter signifies spring, and that means spring flowers. Bold yellow floral embellishments make this lovely J by Jasper Conran  clutch bag (£40, Debenhams) a spring favourite of ours. And we love the quirky floral bracelet from the  Coachella range at H&M (£5.99).

Finally, get some fun Easter baking on the go with these cute cookie cutters from White Stuff (£8.50). There’s flower, an Easter bunny, a carrot, and, well, we’re not sure, actually – is it an onion?! Maybe a flower bulb?!

Mmm. Happy Easter everyone!
