The woman with the hat

After scouting for days for fabulous, inspirational stylish people in the streets of Barcelona, avoiding touristic areas I still didn’t find any. I’m sure they were hiding around somewhere but our paths never crossed.

I had almost given it up and then I spotted this lady on my way home from the beach. It was the secure, slightly ignorant way she wore her hat and the way she was totally dressed in black paired with black espandrillos in the late sunny noon that caught my interest. I off course presumed she was a local or at least Spanish and asked her kindly if I could take a photo of her. Oh, how wrong I was, she is a Norwegian like me and her name is Runhild, how funny isn’t that? Maybe I should have guessed, she’s fair skinned, blond and blue eyed but these days you cannot tell any longer, I’ve met plenty of blonds like her before from the southern hemisphere. I don’t know much about her either other than she gave me her card and she smiled.

Speaking of hats I’ve been searching for mine for months now in London, even in Turkey and Barcelona but still haven’t found The One in leather. I think I’ll surrender and just stick to the one I already found, now in my wardrobe at home waiting to be worn, it’s from H&M above, for a good cause, Fashion Against AIDS.
