Happy Saturday! I apologise for the photo quality of this post...I had planned to take outfit pictures by the southbank today but it decided to rain, leaving me with no choice but boring hallway photos. I'm sorry. Anyway, I broke up from school on Thursday, and have since been crazily productive...a whole new experience for me (I used to be the world's laziest teen and I'm not even exaggerating). I got up really early on Friday and had breakfast in bed whilst finishing some dress designs for textiles; read a huge chunk of To Kill a Mockingbird which I am re-reading for school; made a start on my English exam preparation; made a fantastic sushi salad lunch; hung out with some cool girls and ate chocolate biscuits, and finally stayed over at my friend's house. We had intended to have a comforting movie night with pizza and blankets, but ended up crashing the party across the road and stealing bread and walnuts, running around Sainsbury's with pumpkins (and leaving with only a packet of black cake icing) breaking a glass full of wine and disinfecting the whole kitchen, and of course eating three pizzas between us. 'That escalated quickly' doesn't even begin to describe it. I woke up to a lovely sunny morning and honey-covered maple syrup pancake and yoghurt for breakfast. What a fabulous start to the holiday.
After leaving my friend's house and stumbling home makeup-less and tired, I decided to take a trip down to the Tate Modern to see the Paul Klee exhibition. My parents have been fans of his work for a while and his work is quite relevant to my current project in art, so I thought it would be worth a look just in case I could get some inspiration for my schoolwork. I wore my granny glasses from Camden market as I have finally realised that I can't actually see, so may as well start wearing them more often. My jumper and shoes are from Rokit, my skirt from Beyond Retro, and my socks from Topshop.
The Paul Klee exhibition was amazing. I was not expecting to see such huge collection of his work, and was happily surprised to see such a wide range of his various techniques and styles on display. I loved his style and the concept behind his pieces; I can't wait to try some of his ideas out in my schoolwork....on the subject of which, I still have oodles of revision left to do.
