Yes, it is the parasol. I absolutely love parasols. They are elegant, ladylike and romantic. Most of my parasols douple as umbrellas so they are rather practical too (If I only used them as umbrellas :p). The parasol has this old fashioned elegance to it which gives a new kind of charming air to any outfit.
My other favorite type of accessory is the hat. I love bonnets, cloches, berets and so on. I think hat gives and outfit a mature, demure look that can't be achieved by a traditional headdress or a bow. Also it gives more protection from the elements which can be pretty brutal in Finland.
