`"There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see."
I think that can be applied to so many things in life. I personally feel it is very true for the world we live in.
Today's look is a beautiful, ethereal dress. The style is a bit bohemian and a bit fairy. I kept the pictures rather scenic and included many shots with different backgrounds. So the focus isn't as much on every aspect of the outfit, but on everything around it too.
We went on a trip to Rheinstein castle by the Rhine River Valley.
"The castle was constructed in about 1316/1317. Rheinstein Castle was important for its strategic location..." read more:
To me it is one of the most romantic castles I have ever seen. The location, surrounded by the tall, lush hills of the Rhine River Valley, the water, the beautiful Garden and Terrace. Someone built and rebuilt this with a love for detail. It is also a rather small castle with lots of cozy rooms (my favorites are the small rooms in the tower)
The whole area around it just screams "fairytale". When you go down the river by boat you pass one castle after the other, they are only minutes apart.

You can see this dress has several sections that are transparent, though all the important parts are covered. I really think it is well one because it shows just enough to look interesting but not so much that it looks tacky.
My favorite is the back view :)
The front panel is quite thick so no bra is needed.
Gladiator wedges with woven detail!
I think they are so unique and they look really "earthy". Thanks to the low wedge heel they were comfortable enough for sightseeing.
Something between Bohemian and Tribal looking, but still polished.
This bag is my go to bag for all earthy looks. I think the simple design and suede texture just go so well with certain looks.
It is actually an old FOSSIL handbag that I got off of Ebay in 2008. It was NWT and only $60 (originally 140), a real steal.
The three piece necklace features a real gem stone. Lovely tiger's eye.
A little romantic
Start on the left side of your head. Losely twist 2 strands from your temples. Then move to the back of your head by adding another strand from the bottom every time you twist. Sort of like a french braid but you only twist. Make sure this is done loosely.
Gather the top half of your hair into a side ponytail. Create a little hole behind the elastic closest to your head and flip the tail through once. The grab the remaining hair and also pull it through the hole you created. Your ponytail will be a bit shorter with one part ending a little higher than the rest which creates an interesting look.
