It’s sunny.

I would have fared well during Victorian times when pasty complexions were all the rage. I am physically unable to tan.  I burn and then freckle.  Pale skin has yet to make its comeback, but luckily for me, parasols have!

I love this idea.  Never wear a watch again…carry a parasol!  Japanese designer Kota Nezu created a parasol with a built-in sun dial. Find out how it works here.
