As interesting and beautiful as the walls and keep of Cardiff Castle were, I have to admit that my main reason for wanting to visit was the magnificent Castle Apartments.
I've been trying to dress up a little more on my days off, as it makes me feel so much better. Something I've been reaching for often is this beautiful blue floral dress, because it is swishy and princess-y but also comfortable. I wasn't actually planning to do an outfit post for this ensemble, but then we went for a walk and found this huge patch of Spring flowers, including bluebells which matched my outfit, and it was just too perfect.
For as long as I can remember, I have always felt the pull of nature, the need to get away from civilisation and immerse myself in earth and trees and expanses of water. I think it is one of those things you either have or you don't, and I know people who have the opposite pull, the urge to dwell deep in a metropolis, surrounded by buildings and people and technology.
I'm still pretty pleased with how I managed to match myself to most of the decor at Cardiff Castle.
Everything is thrifted except the corset top, which is self made.
#CreativeKickstart is a hashtag to share what we've been making and being inspired by each month, created by my merfriend Cuttlefishlove. I kept up with it for a few months last year but then lost track. This year I want to post a photo for each month. I think it will be really interesting to look back at the end of the year and see my creative journey!
The main reason I visited Cardiff was to go to Cardiff Castle. I had been before but never really got to explore as fully as I would have liked. This time I was determined to look around as much of the Castle as possible! I definitely succeeded in that, as we ended up spending over three hours traversing the Castle.
