Those of you out there who are from the US, I would like some vague indication of the realisticness of my perception of what my stateside summer is actually going to be like. That said, if I do not attend a least one beach party and have at least one encounter involving a yacht, I will be disappointed. I am beginning to think that the America I want to visit this summer actually ceased to exist in around the year 1960, but a girl can dream hey?
In other news, I do now have the perfect hat for attending all these events:
I bought it yesterday at Camden market before proceeding to wear it for the rest of the day. From now on, this is going to be my signature hat. I don't know about you guys, but I never feel fully or adequately dressed unless my head is adorned with some sort of decorative item. Be it a headscarf, flower, headband or hat, it really finishes off an outfit. Given that 99.9% of things that I attend are very informal, I feel that a little quirky head adornment goes a long way in the style stakes.
I also fell in love simultaneously with a dress, a shop and a way of life. Which resulted in me buying this dress:
It is from the most scrumptious vintage stall in Camden market and I really couldn't not buy it. I could have purchased multiple items, but that would have been an unwise economic decision, given that it would result in me a) never being abe to afford to go anywhere again, and therefore b) having no occasion to wear any of my new things, and c) not being able to afford to go on the aforementioned trip to 1960s USA (I hear time travel is pretty expensive these days).
So there we have it. What is everyone else looking forward to about the summer? And have you found your must-have items for the summer yet?
