This floppy straw hat from Asos is my favorite find this summer. I have a weak spot for fashion items with quotes, and this “I’m busy” quote is just way too interesting to miss.

I’m Busy Floppy Straw Hat | Summer Travel Outfit
Floppy Straw Hat. I 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.
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?
