With this summer heat, I am so ready for fall weather. It is the hottest time of the year; in fact, it was over 100 degrees in Birmingham this week. I am not quite ready to give up summer fashion though. I love all of the bright colors and light colors/fabrics. We don’t get true fall weather in Birmingham until at least November. I’ve been eyeing this Chicwish dress for a while and I knew the PERFECT location to shoot it as soon as I got it: Quinlan Castle in downtown Birmingham. This dress gives me total Princess Peach (from Mario) vibes, so a castle is the perfect backdrop. I think it’s the sleeves and color that reminds me of Princess Peach. Being a blogger, I am always scouting out new photo locations. When I saw the Quinlan Castle in downtown Birmingham, I knew I had to take pictures by it someday.
The Quinlan Castle is actually a vacant apartment building that is now owned by Southern Research institution. Sadly it is gated off, so this is as close as I could get to it. Birmingham has so many unique locations. This dress is so gorgeous and would be perfect for a visit to London because of how feminine it is. Can I go back? I can picture it at all of the cute cafes with flowers in front of them. It is also perfect for a garden party, brunch, a night out with the girls, or a date night. It is true to size and great quality. The fabric is light and breezy, so it’s especially perfect for the heat right now.
Jake and I finally have several weekends at home for a while. As much as I love to travel, we are excited to have a low key weekend consisting of no plans. What are your weekend plans?
