Whew! The end of an internet-banned long weekend. Well, I was still on the internet, I'm not going to lie, but to a lesser extent. Which is always a good thing. I went to visit Albert in Bonn, where these photos were taken, among the Roman markers that dot the streets of the Altstadt where we live. Unfortunately that's about all I can tell you about them, since the internet has not been forthcoming on the subject.
These somewhat ridiculous sunglasses are part of my summer of personal style discovery. I feel that since starting a blog I've both started to define what I like, and strayed from it, lured by all the possibilities for self-styling that I see everyday on other blogs. I'm making a real attempt to narrow my focus as summer wears on, mainly because I like summer dressing to be as hassle-free as possible. So far I've discovered that 1) headscarves are really my thing (I think it would be hats, but you can only fit so many hats in a suitcase) and 2) I like my eyewear on the eccentric side. I think it must be a family thing. My dad is a bit of a mad professor, and my mom celebrated finally needing reading glasses by getting various coloured ones with rhinestones at the corners... I say, if I don't look like a bug, an alien, or a 60s escapee, I'm clearly not having enough fun.
