"A summer outfit?" you might ask. Yes indeed! I was in Barcelona for a few days and there it was warm enough for a look like this. We shot this pictures back at home, because there was no time for a shooting, but I just couldn't resist to show you this look.

My flamingo addiction has no end and in this outfit I show you not just one, but two new flamingo accessories. I wanted to go for a rather sweet and 50s inspired look and wear a romantic flower print dress and a lot of candy floss pink.

While we shot this outfit, a few little girls were watching. I heard them say that "This woman looks like a princess", which made me smile and happened to become the title of the post.

I had to be very patient until I could show you this outfit for a very special reason: I had my ears pierced only for the flamingo earrings and wasn't allowed to put them on for a time that felt like eternity. But the look was just not complete without the earrings. Because I still have problems with one piercing I only wear one earring, but hopefully this will be over soon.

The other highlight of the outfit is the bag. It's actually made from a garden decoration flamingo. I haven't seen something like this before, just stumbled over it while giving in to my flamingo addiction and looking for flamingo things on the net for a whole eve. Believe me, browsing for flamingos causes an instant outburst of happiness, if you don't believe me, have a try!

Please tell me you love this look as much as I do!
