First off, I have to apologize for my few-and-far-between posts and the lack of response to comments/e-mails these days. No explanation needed (oh, beautiful weather, hello!), though I haven’t felt tingles of inspiration to get back into the bloggy swing of things as of late. Anyway, despite having no time or desire to go shopping at all, I am at long last able to tick off two items from my spring/summer list. Hurray!
1) An in-between-seasons transitional jacket
2) A pair of sandals
Wide brim sun hat
5) Tailored shorts
6) A black pouch
My most recent investment piece arrived just in time for the festival season. As a ridiculously super-picky gal, it’s no surprise that it took me months to settle on a pair of sunglasses. I am, however, very appreciative of my picky behavior at times, as it seems to pay off in the long run. Although I’d love to possess a couple of frivolous shades, it’s not really an option as I’m rather nearsighted and need prescription lenses because I won’t consider contact lenses. Price isn’t much of an issue – quality is. Apparently, I settled on the Clubmasters from Ray-Ban, and I’m absolutely content with this investment. There is a bit of kookiness and nonchalance in the look of the sunglasses, to which I’m quite partial. Decidedly, the Clubmasters are offbeat and classic at the same point.
As for the hat, it is by no means a sun hat or what I had in mind, but I am literally fed up with searching for hats – though I have only gone hat hunting in five shops. In other words, I’m not much of a keen hat hunter. Thanks to my friends’ providential moving-out-sale yesterday, I ultimately scored a bargain of a hat, which I bought from Maja. Fortunately, the brim is wide enough to somewhat keep the tan away, and I look kind of cute, eccentric and schizophrenic, style-wise, when wearing it. Anyhow, I’m just a tad concerned that this hat might be too warm on unbearably hot summer days; hence I’m still searching for a summery straw hat. There is nothing more repellent than hair soaked in sweat by virtue of unbefitting headwear. Any suggestions are welcome!
