Hello, Swan Lake..?

I had excepted this to be a ballet inspired post of sorts. Really, how could I not, in this beautiful swan print dress by a certain Miss Caitlin Shearer. I had envisioned a morning of bouncing around on my tippy-toes alongside a swan filled lake. I was even wearing my brand new shoes by bait footwear. Just slipping them onto my feet brings me back to my ballet days. I almost feel as if I should be shuffling about en pointe and wrapping my hair into a make-shift bun – though I’m sure that you can see that I certainly did one of the two.

We stumbled upon this beautiful location during our journey to ‘the swan park’. A lone branch was overhanging the water in one of the quietest river spots I’ve ever seen. I carefully clamoured my way out onto the branch (which made for some very ungraceful and quite hilarious photos!) before settling down on my perch right in the centre of the branch. Incredibly, I didn’t even fall off when I was climbing down to dry land – this is coming from the girl that once fell waist-deep into the school stream, in full uniform of course! A very reassuring feat when you’re wearing a dress as delightful as this Caitlin Shearer beauty. Finishing the spot rather perfectly was a self-made hanging swing. Quite possibly the perfect thing for summer, though I don’t think I’d fancy swimming with all of the ducky residents..!
