OOTD: Under The Apple Tree*

At the dm camp we were thought that when naming a blog post we should use the keywords we want our post to be found for. So in fact I should have named this post "Back to School" or "Black Hat". But I'm a language student after all and the title I chose seemed more poetic to me. Why am I telling you this? Well in order to show you that these few outfit pictures are quite dense and that there are several stories behind them.
Let's start off with the apple tree. The apple tree is a sign for autumn and even though we had 25°C when I wore this, we can't deny that it's going towards the definite end of summer.
Autumn means start of school and in fact this was also the outfit I wore to my first day of university. I have now finished my bachelor's degree and I started a M.A. course back in Luxembourg. A long story which I will be telling you in detail as soon as I realised that it is real!
Autumn however also means that it's time to dust your beloved floppy hats! And I definitely didn't have to dust this baby as I got it all new from About You. The site has a lot of premium brands to offer but I was immediately intrigued by the brand Maison Scotch. I had of course heard the name before but never bought anything from that brand and I also didn't know they would be selling such perfect hats! Because in fact I had been looking for a nice hat for ages (like really, I mean years!) and now I'm so happy with my new baby that I even wear it at 25°C. That's true love, isn't it?
