Sunrise and sunset.

Sunrise/sunset
My sleeping/getting up routine gets very easily messed up in the summer because of the constant light. Yes, I live that far north - so far north that for two months straight in the summer the night is as bright as the day. It is very lovely, but it also unfortunately leads me to turn the day around (not completely, but much more than what I should) on the days when I'm not working. Consequently, these pictures were taken sometime during the night - and I couldn't really say if the sun is rising or setting, but I suppose that does not really matter.

I love the summer just for that light! Of course here it still gets dark for a few hours, starting around 11-12pm, so there's that to signal that it's bedtime, but I almost wish I didn't have to sleep in the summer, the early mornings with the sun rising but everyone still sleeping are the best part :)

Baśka said...

these are amazingly gorgeous shoes :) love them! and also the pics are magical...

StickyKitten said...

Oh wow! That is amazing! I love these pics! So dreamy. I am such a night owl and get my days and nights turned around without there even being constant light. That must be confusing (and fun). It's like a little alternate universe where you are ;-)

Mona said...

Midnattssol virker så uendeelig koselig (om enn ikke litt plagsomt og lett å komme ut av rutiner...)!

Skulle ønske vi hadde det her på Sørlandet!

Lovely photos! Kisses ;D

Paulina said...

Hej Ariella!! I think you're so lucky to be able to experiment this! everybody has heard about it but few really know what it is about, I remember when my father told me when I was little there were some places where the nights were completely days, so lovely!! it's like a special place in the world! and how long does it happen? (months..) The pics are really beautiful, and I love those shoes!!! Lots of kisses to you, greetings!

the night thing actually seems soweird, I can't even imagine that.
and btw, you really wanna get red hair? you have such a nice blonde shade. my natural hair is really crap so I changed it, but if I were blonde I don't think I would.

The July Girl said...

Wow, I can't imagine living in a place where it doesn't get dark! strange, but I would love to try it one day!
Lovely outfit btw.

piglet said...

Wow, beautiful photos!
It must be so surreal to live in a place like that. We get lovely long summer days here, but that sunset and sunrise are still very separate!

Emily said...

I've always wanted to experience 24 hour daylight. I'm certain it would throw me off my schedule a bit, but it seems like it could be fun for a while.

I just love these photos, especially the 1st and 3rd. They're so dream-like and wonderful -- they remind me of a storybook.

Cute dress! It looks great on you. I thought about buying the same one. Love the flower crown, too.

And yes, homegrown herbs & veggies are the best :)

Imogen said...

I like this dress you have such a lovely collection of dresses. I also recognise your new shoes. I'm very interested about what you said about the light in Norway do you mean to say it doesn't get dark at all in summer?

Sher said...

Well, at least you will have longer days to do stuff:) Love the dress and the sweet flower crown.

Sandra said...

lovely photos! so cute! ...like it's from some other time...:)

box-of-style

Mo said...

omg those pictures are sooo lovely !!! such as your shoes...and you of course !!!

i'm always so impressed by this all " daylight all the time thing" ..i've never experienced it but it sounds quite disturbing !!!!

Kate said...

Wow, that sounds amazing. All these pictures are gorgeous. I love your dress and hairband (:

Sargunan said...

Nice dresses any ways.

Parapluie said...

The light looks amazing! (and I totally love your shoes!)

Suzannah said...

thanks *so* much for telling me i will definatley have to go and have a look in topshop :) and that's so cool that it stays light all the time! it's just so special and dreamy. Love the photo's too your outfit's lovely <3

Lisa said...

I have that dress too!!!! :P love the idea to wear it with white tights, thanks :') i only wear it when its really hot, i didnt even think about wearing it with tights, haha

muchlove said...

I love your shoes and flower crown.

That's so interesting that night time is as bright as day! I would love to experience that. It would make night life a lot less scary than it can be.

amanda said...

Absolutely stunning photographs!! Especially the first one. And your outfit is perfect. I do not think I could pull off white tights as you do. :)

Nadine said...

Ich liebe die Schuhe und den schönen Blumenkranz in deinem Haar.

Nadine said...

Das Kleid ist eigentlich eher beige als weiß, aber anscheinend sieht man das nicht auf jedem Monitor ^^.

Hanne said...

Så søt kjole:) Jeg har aldri opplevd midnattsolen, så det er på tide å ta seg en tur nordover! Det er ganske fascinerende:)

Nancy said...

What is it called? Summer solstice? Seems cool but freaky at the same time @__@ At least it provides for a pretty background for a cute outfit :)

*indie_queen* said...

I tried this dress on! It's cute and you look lovely! They didn't have my size except for one with a stain on it :(

Dina-Dyorre said...

What I would give to visit somewhere so beautiful and interesting...Nighttime the same as daytime! Although of course you are right, it probably can be a bit uncomfortable. Your photos are absolutely delightful, I think I've told you before but I love your shoes :)

Katie said...

The third photo is gorgeous! I love pictures that are drenched in sunlight too, so beautiful. Have said it before and will say it again, gorgeous outfit!

Hope you're keeping well and everything :) x

Demi said...

thank you for your question honey, it has now been answered :-)
lovee that dress, these photos are magical! <3
xoxo

C.Elizabeth and Natalia said...

The light looks so pretty! I really want to see this someday... It must be such a strange feeling!

I see you wore that dress you mentioned while we were in H&M... ;) It does look nice on you!

BumbleBecky said...

Raquel said...

amazing pictures! it must be lovely to have all that sunshine but it can really mess up our mind and body. you look lovely as always darling.

Light Stealer said...

The thing I like the most about living in Edinburgh is that it's already North enough so that in the summer the sky is never fully black (as here in Italy for example), so I can only imagine how cool it is to have PROPER light at night..!
I'd love to experience that!

Alveline said...

Den kjolen var veldig søt:) Det er noko spesielt med å gå med kjole. Man føler seg fin og lykkelig hehe

Erin Cathleen said...

These photos are ethereal. And your situation reminds me of when I was little and lived in Michigan, which is pretty far north in the U.S. I was pretty close to Canada, and some nights were so bright that I protested going to bed because I thought it was still day/playtime! I even remember seeing the aurora borealis; simply breathtaking. <3 It looks so beautiful where you are, I'm envious!
