Midsummer 

I couldn’t believe that when I decided to visit Stockholm last month for the very first time I got the chance to experience their midsummer festival.  I saw a lot of pictures about it years ago and have been dreaming about going there during midsummer time.  The beautiful flower crowns they put on everyone’s heads just made me fancy even more.  

On midsummer’s eve I was in Skansen open air museum to enjoy the holiday with the locals and other tourists.  Seeing the people setting up the Maypole, we danced under it and sang together!! Even tho I didn’t understand what the songs mean it was still fun!!  It was a special memory and experience :)

KIMONO AND SAKURA

I’ve been to Japan so many times (Kyoto forth time) but its only my first time to wear a kimono and see the sakuras. Nowadays people usually wear this traditional costume on some special days or festivals.  In Kyoto, a city where you can find many old traditional buildings and temples, its also kinda a trend for tourists or even local people (its quite expensive to buy your own ones) to rent kimono for a day, wander around this old city and take some nice photo shoot.

It was a cold day so I wore a haori (the cardigan I wore on top) as well.  It was a bonus to me as I got a chance to choose a different style and pattern garment for styling.  It was a very special experience and I really enjoyed it.  I think even on my fifth trip to Kyoto I still wanna do this again :)

雖然已組是第四次去京都, 穿和服郤是頭一回. 曾穿過夏天的浴衣, 但是日本傳統的和服就是美嘛~三月中的天氣還是冷, 穿好和服後還可以免費加選羽織(外套).  我選的和服顏色是粉藍, 看起來沒有別人的艷, 於是羽織我配搭了帶同粉藍而又較突出的深紫和大花.  天氣實在太冷了, 幸好有準備了圍巾, 跟和服搭起來有像千金小姐呢~(偷笑)

櫻花還沒有滿開, 這是我一直給自己再來京都的借口嗎?

下次來, 我還是要再作一次和服體驗.
