Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lakefeatured

Completely trashed my nude pointy flats while hopping between damp sticks, and would do it again too. The serene lake sunrise was the perfect backdrop for this fairy-tale look. Can you tell the magic of Bavaria influenced my outfits? This Zaful off-shoulder dress seems to have walked right out of an Arthurian legend.

 ‘And near him stood the Lady of the Lake,
  Who knows a subtler magic than his own—
  Clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful.
  She gave the King his huge cross-hilted sword,
  Whereby to drive the heathen out: a mist
  Of incense curled about her, and her face
  Wellnigh was hidden in the minster gloom;
  But there was heard among the holy hymns
  A voice as of the waters, for she dwells
  Down in a deep; calm, whatsoever storms
  May shake the world, and when the surface rolls,
  Hath power to walk the waters like our Lord.

“Idylls of the King” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
