Adventure Time has significantly increased the catalogue of princesses available, but nothing beats the high school Ice Princess.
Except LSP. And Marceline (technically the Vampire Queen). And Princess BG when the mood strikes.
I haven’t really worn this dress as much as I’d hoped so am thinking of cropping the skirt to make it midi length. Then I can wear it with black tights and cardi as part of my collected winter threads.
18 degrees and overcast. Perfect Pipsie beach weather. Seriously. This is the only time I can safely wonder the beach without fear of spontaneous combustion.
I also managed a dip at the end. First time in the ocean for four years. Delightful.

The first photo is glorious – Bruce has upped his game! I think the dress looks beautiful as a maxi – incredibly romantic shots on the beach. However, I think you’re right – it’s too lovely not to be worn frequently so perhaps chop it, wear it and when you have it on, smile as you recall this cherished day x
Thank you Clarinda, Bruce is certainly getting there!I may have to resort to wearing it at home with slippers and a cup of tea. xxx
I love this dress as a maxi! It’s so serene. Keep on making beautiful things!
Thanks Nicki! All the pretty every day. xxxx
I love this dress! Its been hard resisting the Anna dress but you make it look so glorious. Keep the maxi length and just be fabulous in it😘
You have to get on the Anna Hila! It never gets old. Thank you! xxx
This is really gorgeous. I love the longer skirt with soft gathers – beautiful!
The length is here to stay Lizzy. I think bare foot is the way to go with this one. xxx
This is just gorgeous on you! I hope you keep the maxi length. Sometimes you might just need one that length and it’ll be in your closet, for your Ice Princess entrance! 😉
Thank you Melissa. I think the length will stay. I “may” need to get some shoes that complete the outfit. Now where to start looking….. ; )
Beautiful dress, I enjoy your posts so much, they are like story time for me.
Thank you Janie!I do love my show and tell. xx
Beautiful dress & I’m so pleased you managed a ‘dip’.
I’d forgotten how lovely the ocean is. It washes all away…And nothing beats the drowned rat look!
lovely dress and pictures. I cosplayed princess bubblegum at the one comicon I’ve been to (and dressed my little one up as a candy creation). I reckon if I had another girl I’d call her Marceline ;o)
I have PGB envy! Where are the photos? Marceline is a fabulous name. I’m thinking maybe a future kitten….
Perfect princess. Love a maxi, but it’s just not as easy to wear as a shorter length 🙂
It’s odd, I can wear the maxi skirt every day but the maxi dress feels a little more formal. Must work on my styling!
The light grey pattern is so ethereal. This dress is of course perfect on you and great this length. I would keep it as it is and just wear it. You seaside is so spectacular.
I’m so lucky to be close to wonderful beaches. Sadly I can only frolic on overcast days! I’m going to keep the dress long, I may just need to bring out my tiara when I wear it. xxx
your sound of music moment!!!! the best!!
I’ve never seen a musical that hasn’t moved me to dance! x
