Outfit: Retro in Red at Drum Manor

One of my favorite old manor houses to wander around on a sunny day is the ruined Drum Manor.
What remains of this manor house is actually the outside walls and what was once the interior of the home has been converted into a garden. I knew the beautiful stone walls would be the perfect backdrop for my new red dress by Miss Candyfloss. I wore this dress over our weekend away awhile back and only snapped one picture featuring it against the dramatic backdrop of an oncoming storm and Scrabo Tower. It's just such a stunner of a dress that calls for an equally dramatic location to set it off--although it also walks the line by being very easy and wearable that I've worn it on quieter days of errands (styled more simply with flats and sans beret and book clutch).

  3. Such a pretty dress!

  4. Hello! These clothes are GORGEOUS, as are you and the photos are delicious! I love your blog!

    I'm also a blogger. I blog about art/lifestyle and diy mostly. I was searching for beautiful style blogs that I enjoy so that I can expand my blog community. <3

    I'm looking for any blog-community building advice you could offer as well! I think it's more tough when one has their own domain; it's standalone from the community. I've heard of bloggers promoting content through blog listings like bloglovin', as well as sites where you can earn promotional opportunities for having good content content like Advowire (https://advowire.com//users/profile/new?referral_code=AW36707). Do you use any of these sites to promote content or to collaborate with other bloggers? Do you know of other sites/resources you'd like to recommend?

    Thank you so much for reading! Hope to hear from you. xox

  8. Those heels are so beautiful!

  9. @Amber Renee / Miseducated.com, for me I find most of blogging community happens off the blog--like Instagram or Tumblr or Twitter. But I also think it's very much what you make of it; I've never seen blogging as a community activity (it's so private and done at home by yourself), but I have built friendships with other bloggers. It's also good to try to look locally; what are other bloggers in your area or country doing and maybe building for forum for people in your area. I feel like the focus on community should always be to start small and let it grow to something bigger; so start with a niche (like your region or your specific blog focus) and try to connect with people who fit that and go from there.

  10. The red and those tights...sooo cute!
