Lady In Blue

This dress from Glamorous is so seriously awesome. The arrival of this dress in the mail conveniently coincided with me realising that I had accidentally dyed my hair blue from the night before, so I spent the entire day swooshing around, going around university all pastel blue and feeling like a mermaid. I had big plans for a ballet-themed shoot with this dress (I did very competitive-level ballet for 10 years and feel like this would be a good time for it to come in handy, if nothing else), but the weather wasn't particularly great, my remote-timer was broken and it's too hard convincing someone to take photos for me (any other bloggers out there who have to bribe their friends/boyfriends/parents into taking just a couple of outfit photos for them? Remote timers are now my best friend.) Hopefully I'll get to do that someday, though. This dress just looks incredible in motion and I want to try and show that off somehow!

Thanks for your lovely comments on this post a couple of days ago. It was nice to hear that I come across as a super-confident person because I'm actually pretty darn shy. But I was even happier to get comments saying that my (pretty lame, haha) little story had convinced people to be a bit bolder in their style and clothing choices, ignoring what other people would think about it! It's little things like that that make me really happy to have a blog and to be inspiring, in some way, to some people out there. You're all awesome and I love you :)

I hope you're all marvellous!

  1. Hi, just wanted to say hi and that I love the outfit! and your hair is amazing too.

  2. You look beautiful! And I was thinkIng of you today, m'am--I'm gonna try to get my butt in gear and sew something. :p we'll see how this turns out.

  3. you know, everyone are angry when they read about bullying. i was also bullied and it went so fast so i've got ill (it's forever). yeah but i need to deal with it. people are just rude.
    this dress is beautiful. i love it. <3
    you look wonderful as usual!

  4. So beautiful.I loved the dress. ;)



  5. Oh my! That dress is absolutely beautiful! I love that it matches your hair!


  6. Oh em gee, I can't wait to see your ballet shoot! I also do ballet (not competitively), so I would love to shoot you, but we don't live in the same country, so that would be quite difficult.

  7. Lovely outfit, perfect combo!

  8. I really love this outfit, you looks so beautiful! I have to say though, I wish you did not wear the same hat (or any hat) in every single one of your pictures. I think this outfit would look more elegant without this county hat.

    1. haha, i try! i honestly do! but everytime i start taking outfit photos, the hat is just staring at me... saying "wear me annika, wear me..."

  9. that is a lovely dress! So so cute!


  10. You are so pretty. Love this dress and how you've styled it with the white tights.

  11. So lovely! The colour looks gorgeous! And yes, I have to bribe my mister to take photos. I'm getting ready to go off to uni for the first time in just 2 weeks! Hopefully I'll make friends who are willing to take photos ;)

  12. Oh girl, I so want to steal your wardrobe. You always look amazing.

  13. This dress is superb. I'm hooked upon Glamourous ever since you promoted it here, they have a greta range of dresses. The light blue hair looks so purty with this dress. How I wish I could have seen this ballet shoot you have been thinking of. I am often in the same position as you, bad weather and self timer. Gotta love that self-timer mode. It saves me from begging my siblings on my knees to help me out. :D

  14. The dress looks gorgeous! Just love the color of it.

  15. I love that outfit!
    Your blog is so pretty!


  16. I absolutely loved this outfit :) Your hair colour totally rocks!

  17. Love the pastel blues! Your hair looks like a beautiful blue-purple!
    I totally feel you on the whole getting people to take your pictures thing. My boyfriend is 100% fed up with it, so its time for me to invest in a better tripod and remote!
    If we lived closer I would totally take your pictures ;) Why don't people understand it will only take all of 10 minutes and saves you a good hour of time!
    Oh well, he's a good sport about it sometimes..
    Happy weekend to you!

    1. Oh my gosh, I wish! That would be the best!
      And I know! I set up the camera, position him, tell him to just press the shutter and my boyfriend makes me feel so guilty about it that it's not even worth it! haha. (hoping he's not going to read this. love you luci!)

  18. I really like these photos!!

  23. Cool colour to cool down the summer heat, beautiful dress.

    I agree, it's actually kind of embarrassing to ask someone taking picture of yourself, especially if you're shy.
