This is the dress. You know? The one I ranted on an on about late last year in lead up to the dance? I took these pictures at summer's peak (mid January) and completely forgot about them. It was quite lucky to find them on my old memory card because the weather has been completely ridiculous here lately and I've been drowning in homework which means no chance of outfit pictures. I'm really excited though because I turn the big 1 - 6 (OK, fine, it's not that old) in five days! I don't know what it is about being 16, but it's just such an important age of me. :)
Anyway, doesn't it look so summery and lovely in these pictures?! It's completely different right now though; very chilly (I'm even wearing a sweater!) and perfect tea and movie watching weather. I've also been looking at a few online stores recently too in search of wintery things for my wardrobe. I really like the collection of Ugg Australia they have at Number Eight Clothing... especially these gorgeous gloves. They would look so fancy with a trench and some red lipstick! Hope you're all having a great week so far, I'm off to relax after a homework filled afternoon and watch the latest episode of the Carrie Diaries. Bliss. xo

The shop I work at actually sold those exact gloves this winter! They're all sold out now as the part of the world that I'm in is heading into spring. I'm so excited! I'm done with winter and cannot wait for summer!

Every picture of you is just so lovely! This mint color is a dream and wonderful with a crown of rosebuds. Fairy like indeed :) Turning 16 is so very exciting :) I remember I got to have a special makeup party on my sweet 16! I hope yours is simply glorious!

You look like a true princess Maria, I am head over heels in love with your dress! Do you think you will wear it to your high tea for your birthday? I cannot believe our birthdays are so close! I will be sending you a card asap :)

I have also been keeping an eye out for gorgeous pieces to add to my winter wardrobe. Of course, I am still thinking polka dots, peter pan collars, stylish coats and berets!
