"If only everything were as simple as snow."
Last night the snow stuck for the first time, and it is the perfect time to watch one of my favorite movies from childhood.The Polar Bear King, based on a Norwegian folktale with a touch of Jim Henson's magic created for me a perfect storybook winterland, and a curious young woman who must face the consequences of her choices and set her world right again. In a place where kingdoms are made of eternal cold and eternal warmth, evil forces seek to take it all, and a princess falls in love with a giant polar bear who is really a king. The title of the post is my favorite quote from the movie, when the king is trying to understand why his daughter would want to leave him and go with a seemingly vicious polar bear. Life isn't simple, but snow is. My outfit was indirectly inspired by the princess, living in a snow covered land and dreaming of flowers in springtime. I'm nearly frozen solid in these pictures but the sugary snow was too tempting not to play around in.
