STRAW HATS WITH PLAYFUL BOWS: ELEMENTS OF SUMMER

No more reason to complain any longer because it’s finally here in Britain: Summer! It’s currently so unbelievably beautiful outside and I love the long daylight too. The weather is glorious (it’s not too warm which is great as I’m not a fan of very hot temperatures) and even after office hours there’s still enough time and daylight for some ventures outside. We like our walks in the nature. We only live about 5 minute from Farndon which is such a pretty little village that divides England and Wales. I can highly recommend taking a walk alongside the Farndon Mews by the river Dee. It’s so quiet and peaceful there and I think that is something we appreciate even more these days. straw hats with playful bows

 
 

Although we don’t get tropical temperatures around here, we shouldn’t underestimate the power of the sun and the UV radiation. I had the worst sunstroke in my youth and it had such a deterrent effect on me that I stopped sunbathing many many years ago and usually choose shadow over sun. As you know I love my hats. They are great accessories but they also provide protection. You couldn’t ask for a better companion in summer than straw hats. I found this beautiful model at Anthropologie and I think it’s too blame that I’m currently in a bit of a bow frenzy (here’s a very similar model). Straw hats with bows look very feminine and playful. I probably watch way too many period dramas where the heroine is usually wearing these kind of hats. But then again it’s a sign that your choice was very wise no matter how often your husband is teasing you with your daily growing hat collection. straw hats with playful bows

I was just thinking about wearing a hat for an upcoming post. Do you know if there is any etiquette about wearing them inside vs outside??
I know I’ve worn them inside to restaurants but my husband thinks it’s strange??

Ha, I know what you mean. Well, I try to take them off inside (depending how bad my hair is that day and whether I have a comb and some hairspray at hand!) as I think it always looks very strange inside a restaurant for example. But then again, it all depends on where you’re going really.
