Castle Hill and Daffodils

Welcome, indeed. It's a typical spring day in Edinburgh and I have, yet again, located a beautiful and mysterious area of the city. Prior to this afternoon I had not yet discerned the cause of my recent allergy issues. After viewing these cascading fields of daffodils, I am perplexed no longer.

During my little walk I entertained fantasies that I was a princess, wandering through the grounds outside my humble castle. Or perhaps Cassandra in 'I Capture the Castle,' if you've read it. Cassandra was slightly annoying, but I'd take her life any day. However, given the splendor of my recent homestead, perhaps she would take mine.








Boots: Hunter Wellies (in original green...how very Scottish/practical of me); Dress: H&M (Birthday dress!); Cardigan: Costco (believe it or not); Headband: Urban Outfitters; Tights/Socks: Target; Clutch: Vintage courtesy of my nana

Aw girl! You look adorable in your wellies! That dress is screaming for the spring time- so beautiful, and I'm lovin' that clutch- yay for stylish nanas! Also I am not sure why your necklace is speaking so much to me, but it makes me think of ancient egypt. hard core. and then the Prince of Egypt because it is Passover. I should probably stop typing now, but not before I say that your outfit also reminds me of Mary from A Secret Garden. Okay I'm done.

I envy how you make wellies actually look cute. They just look like abnormally large cartons on me. :/ As always, you look delightful, especially in that headband!
