Hi everybody! Sorry, we have been a bit MIA for the past few days for a long holiday weekend. Ours was great and we hope yours was lovely as well! I flew to North Carolina for some family time (my sister turned seventeen on Sunday!) and also got a chance to catch up with some of my best friends from the east coast. Becka spent some time with her crazy and glam grandmother Omi- who I’m sure will show up on the blog at some point or another- and hosted a dinner party with her boyfriend Kyle.
So it’s Wednesday and that means its time to pack up for a trip around the world! This time we thought we might figure out what to bring along if we were, say, invited on a cozy family getaway to our boyfriend’s Scottish castle. Like perhaps this one?
For me, I think this weekend would be all about rich colors and ladylike shapes, amped up with a bit of modern flare. Sweaters and other layering friendly pieces would be a must (castles are drafty you guys!) but above all I’d like to feel sleek, pulled together, confident- and cozy.
Staying in a castle makes me want to be dark and dramatic. Think tortured princess locked away in a tower with only time to sew fabulous, hate-filled dresses. (side note-this should probably be a movie.) I’m thinking a thick plaited braid like below, some dramatic leather gloves, and a never-ending supply of deteriorating wool sweaters and lace infused gowns.
Would you wear any of these to a Scottish Castle? And more importantly what gown would you wear? Let us know!
