Retreat to the Lake Country in Style

Retreat to the Lake Country in Style
Retreat to the Lake Country in Style by LeighAnneD featuring gold earrings

Hiding away at a villa on a lake with the man you (secretly) love…could anything be more romantic? Perhaps if yours wasn't a forbidden love.

Still, strolling along the lake on a sunny afternoon in an amazing outfit with a handsome, adoring man at your side is intoxicating.

These lovely dresses by Thomas Kirchgrabner offer the same lovely feel of Padme Amidala's flowing garden gown with its seamless blending of pretty pastels. Of course, one would need a dynamite pair of shoes to accompany such a dress. But, it's difficult to settle on just one pair when you don't know what tomorrow will bring--so this set offers six sexy options for a variety of occasions and moods.

Sparkling gold or champagne, coordinating lime or bold turquoise shoes are ideal for a night on the town, drinks and dinner or a night spent dancing away the hours. Dainty diamond sandals are an afternoon delight while a slightly lower-heel sling in soft cream is just the thing for a quiet evening fling--strolling with the man you love.

Likewise, the options available for coordinating jewelry are various in this collection but all are in keeping with the dramatic (substantial) feel of Padme's abalone shell bib necklace and curvy armbands. Choose them as paired or mix and match them. (For compassion's sake, choose shell accessories crafted from found shells only--not harvesting mollusks please.)

Makeup is soft and pretty in peaches and cream tones with a pretty and soft rosy pigments and gloss for kissable lips. Color is the main feature of the Hollywood-inspired eyes rather than heavy mascara or eyeliner. A host of pastels and pale blue eyeliner frame eyes filled with love and romance--a dark eye would be too harsh and spoil the mood.

Finally, a look this pretty deserves a lovely scent, such as the aptly named "Good Day Sunshine." Given that this set is full of choices, naturally, two aromatic options are offered. To which fragrance would you say, "I do"?
