Mon beau château

According to the book, Wales has many castles from various time periods. This one was built under the reign of Edward I. So I went for a chic casual look. The dress has no details, but the cardigan has a lovely flower detail, the shoes are also nice and the accessories have cute elements. The quilted Marc Jacobs handbag adds even more chic the the outfit and its color compliment the color of the dress.

Na Trosaichean

Another casual look for the last scottish location in "1,000 Places to See Before You Die". It is again an outdoor location which seems quite enchanting from the pictures I've seen of it. I went for simple jewelries to complement the rest of the outfit.

Air a' bhlàr a-muigh

Still in the scottish countryside, so I went for a outdoorsy look. The picture of the hairstyle is in this set because there aren't many good pictures of Altnaharrie Inn and I needed something to fill in the space I usually reserve for a second picture and I decided to add a hairstyle to go with the outfit.

De retour de Californie

Yup, I spent two weeks in California and visited Santa Barbara (totally fell in love with that place), San Francisco (if you are a Disney fan, you must visit the Walt Disney Family Museum), Hearst Castle (the exterior pool is fabulous!), Los Angeles (walk of fame needs some tlc, but easily spotted the stars of Celine Dion and Guy Laliberté [Cirque du soleil founder]. Eh, I am French-Canadian after all) and finally Disneyland (best part of my trip)!

Here are some pictures (not in any particular order)

Santa Barbara (view from hotel room)
Mickey's house
The Hollywood sign (that fuzzy white thing up in the mountain... (the clarity of the iPod camera...))
San Francisco (as seen from Alcatraz)
Sleeping Beauty's castle at night

островной замок

I decided to go for a casual look for this location. It's not a very colorful outfit, but the handbag does add a bit of color. I like the way the top look, very delicate and feminine while still being simple. The boots are kinda sexy, but not too much, just enough to add a little something to the outfit.
