Aby-a-Day – 21 Juni: Who wore it best? (Fashion Friday Flashback)

Glad Midsommar, allihopa! It’s all downhill from here…

Today is the greatest Swedish holiday apart from Jul, the day when we get the longest day and the latest sunset, and in a country known for winter, this is a big deal. When I posted about Midsommar last year, I included photos of Jacoby wearing the traditional flower crown.

I recently found the floral crown again (it had fallen behind some books) this spring. I was thinking Jake could model it again, perhaps outside…but obviously that can’t happen. So I decided to try it on everyone else, and see who, potentially, could be my next hat model. I started with Angel.

After all, Angel does have hat wearing experience.

She wasn’t in the mood today…

…this is the best I could get from her.

So, Alfred, how are you at wearing a flower crown? You are a native born Swede, after all…this should be natural for you!

freddymidsommarC08362

Er…Where are you going?

Oh, you think the top of the balcony tree is a better background?

freddymidsommarC08368

You may be right. Okay, give me looking off into the distance.

Great! Now give me sensitive and thoughtful.

freddymidsommarC08375

Awesome! And now…give me the money shot!

freddymidsommarC08379

Perfect!

Okay. Let’s try the other Swedish Aby. Lorelai, your turn.

Once again, without the crazy eyes?

rorymidsommarC08311

Okay…better. But let’s keep going…

Demure…demure is good…or it would be if you weren’t so frowny.

There you go! That’s perfect!

And, now…let’s see how the Polish contestant does. Here you go, Izaak.

zakmidsommarC08325

Oooookay…could you sit up, please?

zakmidsommarC08326

And could you lose the attitude?

zakmidsommarC08331

That’s a little better…keep going…

zakmidsommarC08335

…better…

zakmidsommarC08338

Okay Zak, now you just look like a Tribble with flowers.

zakmidsommarC08347

And…yeah, I think that’s the best we’re gonna get from you today. Thank you!

So, who wore the Midsommer flower crown best?

  1. Jake is the best – some things don’t change. But, I must admit that I really like your Tribble with flowers. And Freddy’s last shot is lovely. Hmmm, maybe I just like boys with flowers?

  2. I think it’s a tie between Jacoby (forever the master) and Alfred (the youngster with great elan). Angel also did very well. These are all fun, great photos, except maybe the ones of Rory. Could it be inexperience or the fact that the hat is so much bigger on her? Little Zak could have stolen the whole show with one great Singapuran stink-eye.

  3. I think Freddy may have to take over for Jake – he seems to be the only one who understood how to model… at least eventually (and I can only imagine how many outtakes he must have generated!).
