Horsey porsey

Howdy gals! :) I have found a new way to express my endless love of horses, in a dress of course! :)
I have been horseback riding since childhood and as a teenager I owned a horse. Those were the days!!
I really miss riding and caring for a horse but its time consuming and costs heaps of money, both of which I cant find the time/afford at the moment.

The horse featured on the dress is actually a model of the Swedish Dalecarlian horse/ Dale horse. Its a traditional carved, painted wooden horse statuette originating in Swedish province Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as Sweden in general. However the designer of this dress is Danish and based in Copenhagen. ;)

The world's largest Dalecarlian horse, made of concrete and located in Avesta Municipality, Sweden.

I chose to focus on the red and pink, I love how those two colours work together, a bit of mismatch and utterly fabulous at the same time. :)

Outfit details: Dress from One Off (Danish designer- new to me and whom makes the most fabulous, quirky dresses.
Top from Indiska
Ancle boots from El Naturalista
