OOTD: Royal Yellow

ootd yellow dress

As you surely know from my Instagram feed I spent a really busy weekend in Cologne. I mainly went there for a concert but I also made use of the occasion to catch up with my best friend whom I hadn't seen for several weeks and to visit the Harry Potter exhibition. Thanks to Julia I could spontaneously add yet another stopover to my little weekend getaway. Only two days before we left she had written a post about this amazing castle not far from Cologne. When I saw the picture I knew I had to go there as well and it wasn't hard to convince my travelling companions.
Thirty minutes from Cologne and only a few minutes from where I lived when I still studied in Germany, you find the picturesque village of Königswinter, which hosts this fairytale castle called Schloss Drachenburg. As soon as we spottet the castle we were really flashes and not only the building itself, but also the gardens and the rooms inside are just magical. The good weather did the rest to make us fall in love with this place. Obviously I wasn't the only one to make us of the pretty setting to take pictures: there was a bridal pair to shoot their wedding pictures in the garden of the castle. And talking about weddings... Yes, this would be the ideal place to get married!
However on Sunday I didn't wear all white yet, but I decided to wear my new 60s inspired dress and to combine the mustard yellow with the bright purple of my Longchamp bag. I recently read that the color blocking trend is outdated but if you ask me it's still one of the best ways to play with fashion.
What have you guys been up to this weekend? Was anybody just as busy as me? If you want to see more of my weekend in Cologne you should check back tomorrow where I'll be posting the pictures of the Harry Potter exhibition!

  1. This little mustard dress fits you perfectly! ;) Looks like you had busy, but very interesting weekend! Sometimes busy weekends charge your energy way better than lazy ones! Waiting to see more photos :)

  2. Oh wow, this outfit looks so chic and I love how well that yellow goes with your aubergine hand bag! It's definitely rocking that retro vibe and look! I spent my weekend working one day and spending the other relaxing at home, doing some gardening and blogging!
