Heh, like mentioned yesterday: some days are just plain cold but the ones in between them may well be sunny and warm. These photos are actually one day older than yesterday's. :D
Regardless, it's finally time to pack away my winter kimono and bring out the yukata. The only problem is that although it's warm, Breiðholt is always super windy, being atop a tall hill and near the sea. I'm battling this with a summerjuban underneath the yukata. While the yukata is usually worn without one it's ok to wear a juban if it's necessary, but it turns the look automatically a notch more formal, so I decided to go with an obi that's on par with that.
Also time to start wearing my favourite geta. :3
I bought these years ago from Kyoto and ever since getting them out of the storage in the spring has been The Sign of summer to me. Now to bear with a blister or two between the toes before my feet once again get used to the idea...
This is me outside reading Lína Langsokkur (= Pippi Långstrump in Icelandic) and eating a self made ice lolly. This is also a photo I had no idea of until I uploaded them all on to my computer. Someone, and I'm not naming names but bf may be the number one suspect, sneaked a photo of me.
Btw here's my favourite ice lolly "recipe":
- berries or fruit
- juice to taste
- Moomin moulds
Skip any one of those three and the quality of the taste won't be the same, yes yes. *nod nod*
