I had a day off of school on Thursday, and so ran a few errands around the broadway before coming back home for lunch and geography coursework...how exciting. I actually don't mind geography, I love travel journalism and I find it pretty interesting if I'm honest. The coursework is a bit of a downer though, as I have to get it done as soon as possible, on top of revision for my mock exams next month, and my textiles coursework. I don't really think my school planned everything out that well but hey, one more year and I can do just the subjects I actually like. I can't wait. Anyway, I wore my big fluffy jumper from Brighton, which I absolutely adore. It makes me feel like a huge marshmallow...on the topic of which, Sainsbury's make sugar-free marshmallows, which are absolutely amazing and better than the originals. Just saying. I wore my shorts from rokit, belt from beyond retro, and shoes from topshop.
I absolutely adored the Pink Lady shoot with Cara Delevingne in the September issue of vogue...there's something so classic about pink, especially in lighter, neutral shades, that comes across as very sophisticated and classy, something not commonly associated with the colour worn by little girls and Barbie dolls. Its resurgence this year in the form of oversized coats and jackets has had me a little nervous though...I don't want it's new-found fame to cause it to become something worn by everyone just because it's 'in'. I hate the thought that people will begin to judge the wearer of a pink item as a wannabe, just wearing it to try and look fashionable, similar to the way the army jacket became something of a status symbol for people wanting to fit into a certain style but not quite getting it right. I'm still going to be wearing my pastel things in my wardrobe but I just hope not everyone else will be, too. I'm not trying to be 'original' or 'indie' (I despise the idea of always trying to be different...mainstream is great sometimes too) but I just want to be able to continue wearing pink in all forms without being judged for it, that's all.
I thought I may as well post a few more photos from the wedding last Saturday - I know I've already shown you some of them, but they look better all together. I can't wait to see the actual pictures from the day...the photographer is so lovely and super talented so I'm excited to see what she's done.
The cake (courtesy of the amazing Coco's Cakes) was amazing. Each tier was a different flavour; the
top was chocolate, the middle vanilla, and the bottom ferrero rocher, all smothered in a green and black's chocolate icing with sugar paste roses. There were also little cookie monster cupcakes...which each had an oreo cookie embedded in the sponge (a bit like a sandwich.) The whole day was absolutely perfect...worth the months of planning I think.
