穿搭 | 我很忙 宽边草帽

Floppy Straw Hat 宽边草帽。我对幽默的设计没有抵抗力,当初在网站上看到这顶有趣的帽子立刻毫不犹豫放到购物篮结账了,收到的时候更是爱不释手,越看越喜欢。有什么是比在草帽上印“我很忙”(I'm Busy)更有时尚态度的夏日配件?(虽然说在海滩或者游泳池畔戴会更加适合就是了....)。(推荐给你:

我好喜欢白色,白色的干净素雅百看不腻,也因此衣柜也有很多白色衬衫,但每一件都有些微的不同。我身上的衬衫是购自极简的 Asos White 系列,有着沈稳的隐藏扣,只在短领上点缀些许皱摺装饰,这样的优雅的细节适合配衬黑色缎面短裤,一点点低调的亮丽和尖头鞋搭配的刚刚好。身为平底鞋控的我自然是选择平底了,我一直相信平底鞋也可以穿的很美。

这天在华盛顿特区的 Smithsonian 站附近走访宏伟的林肯纪念堂\华盛顿纪念碑\和倒映池,全白的大理石和花岗岩让建筑更加庄严。倒映池面对着气势磅礡的林肯纪念堂,另一端则映着高耸的华盛顿纪念碑,斜映着两旁浓密绿荫,远方还有雅致圆顶的国会大厦,这里是我觉得华盛顿特区中最美的一景。

Summer Travel Outfit | I'm Busy Floppy Straw Hat 

have a weak spot for fashion items with quotes, and this "I'm busy" quote is just way too interesting to miss. I have always believed that fashion is a statement that allows people to express themselves instead of showcasing labels and designer brands only. What makes a better fashion statement than this "I'm busy" floppy hat? Especially wearing this fun floppy hat on vacation makes the point - it'll be even better to wear this hat on beach vacation though. 

White is the color that I'll never get tired of wearing and it's also my favorite color. I'm obsessed with white because it's clean, simple and elegant. I have quite a collection of white blouses and they all look similar but slightly different in details. This one I'm wearing is a newfound from Asos White, which is a well-curated selection for minimalist style lovers. It has hidden button placket at the front and simple frilly collar. Details like the frill and the hidden buttons make this blouse polished and crisp with subtle sophistication. 

Strolling Around Washington D.C

We strolled around the the monuments and memorials during the 2nd day of our stay in Washington D.C. The Lincoln Memorial is constructed of white granite and marble and it's incredibly beautiful. The Reflecting Pool lies between the grand Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. Its glassy presence mirrors the Lincoln Memorial, and the rows of trees that line both sides. Here you can also get a view of the elegant dome of the Capitol building from a distance. Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool, and Washington Monument are my favorite spots and must see in DC.


“夏日”和“午后” - 对我来说是英语语言中最美的两个字。—— Henry James

来到美国后才体会为什么外国人那么喜欢晒太阳,冬日的阴沈惨澹让夏日变的格外珍贵,从来没想过日照长短对人的影响这么大。记忆中的台湾炎夏有着热情豪爽的太阳,电风扇永远不够力需要出动冷气才行。但在这里冬天下午三点就开始天黑了,容易被阴沈的天空牵着鼻子走,低落沮丧。而夏日直到九点才日落天暗,长长的白日心情轻快,精神抖擞。

英国文学家Henry James曾经赞叹说夏日午后(Summer Afternoon)是英文语言中最美的两个字,气候和地域影响之大实在非常有意思。不知道大家觉得中文最美的两个字是什么?

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
- Henry James

After moving to the U.S, I've finally understood why people love sunbathing so much here. My hometown Taiwan's brutal heat and high humidity makes it hard to enjoy the sunshine. Growing up in Taiwan, sunny weather is the norm for most of the time except a few month of rain. I've always taken good weather for granted. Here in Boston, it gets dark at around 3:00pm in winter and the shorter daylight affects moods easily. Yet in summer, the sun sets at 9:00pm and it's 6 hours longer than on December solstice. The longer daylight absolutely makes everything beautiful and vivid. Henry James once said that "Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language." It's interesting to see how much climate has affected our lives in different areas. What do you think are the most beautiful words in your language?
