So to my delight, I found this parasol. It doesn't look as oddball as an umbrella, but it's still somewhat acceptable to have open when walking around town. Sometimes sunscreen isn't enough, right? Also, I usually veer away from the brown palette. I don't know why I am so drawn to black hued apparel. But then I saw this dress. Um, hello! It caught my eye in an instant, and the price tag was quite pretty as well. I buckled down and decided to give the doll of a brown frock a chance. So glad I added it to my closet. I'll take a chic bargain anytime.
P.S. To the curious folk, it was nearly 90 degrees when we did this photo shoot. Don't feel too envious though, we will have a return of colder weather for the remainder of this week. So back to dressing in layers again!
