Outfit: Castle Towers & Trapped Princesses


Seems fitting to return to blogging after a brief break in a castle print dress posing by an old tower/gatehouse that reminds one of fairytale princesses trapped in cramped quarters and dreaming of freedom.
After all, while it wasn't a wicked step-mother or evil witch that kept me trapped inside for the past couple of weeks (but rather a bad case of the flu), the result is the same: listlessness, craving sunlight, a sweet breeze, and some prince to sweep you off your feet. Thankfully I've been feeling better and the weather was lovely this weekend so my own ever-sweet *prince* was kind enough to take me out for an adventure. It might have been a bit early in the year for bare legs, but I was celebrating my freedom!
Although the weather might still call for tights and a jacket most days, it is finally starting to feel like spring here. The snowdrops have given way to daffodils and a few bold trees are starting to show green buds. Style-wise I'm craving a more pastel palette than usual for me this spring; light greens and blues feel especially fresh paired with everything rose gold. I'll get a lot of wear out of my new watch and these old shoes from who-knows-how-many-years-ago are definitely going to be in high rotation again. Just give me more sunshine and the freedom to wander about outside...

  1. You had me worried, and then I thought you might be in a magic trip with your prince; sorry to know that it was just the flue what kept you.
    I am very glad to see you back and shining more than ever.
    Mil besos desde Málaga where the sun shines 340 days a year, I think.
    We have about 50 days of rain maximun, so you are welcome to visit.

  2. Oh my goodness I loooove Samantha Pleet. I want her illuminated swimsuit so badly. This outfit is adorable especially with the frog ring hehe. The location is stunning as well. I'm sorry you were sick; I've been pretty sick too. Seems like it is traveling all around the world.

  10. How do you find these amazing shoot locations? It's absolutely stunning, and it works so wonderfully well with the dress that your wearing. You very much look like the damsel locked away in the tower, although with the kick ass blue hair I'm pretty sure you'd find your own way out long before a prince showed up.
    Cheers,

  11. So glad you are feeling better! These photos are so gorgeous. I'm sure they had to have been just stunning after being cooped up in the house for so long. Love everything about your outfit too from the dress, to the watch, to your adorable frog ring.
