Here come my Berlin travel diaries! Are you ready? Although technically, these photos weren’t taken in Berlin but in a city that’s located just an hour or so away from it called Potsdam. My sister and I went on a day trip to this beautiful city primarily because we wanted to explore its palaces that put Disney castles to shame. Of course, I made sure to dress accordingly. Prior to visiting Potsdam’s most famous palaces, Schloss Sanssouci (Sanssouci Palace) and Neues Palais (New Palace), I did a little research and found out that these palaces were heavily influenced by baroque and rococo design elements, both of which make use of rich colors and over-the-top decor. To make sure I don’t clash with these elements, I went for a classic all-white ensemble with subtle details that suit the palaces’ whimsical appeal. I got my sheer top with floral patchwork to match the palaces’ floral theme and a bias-cut skirt–just because flowy midi skirts make me feel like a princess. A girl’s gotta be ready to twirl her way around empty ballrooms and hallways, right? (I think I may have watched too many Disney movies.)
Tomorrow, I’ll show you the palaces in detail. This is just part of Neues Palais’ facade.
