PINK PARADISE

So today, I’m bringing you some pretty pink sawce with a splash of gentrification, featuring the very popular and pretty Palm Vaults café. I was kinda perplexed when I turned up and found this cute little café situated in the middle of the gritty East London high street. It’s right next to boss man’s homeware shop and other local necessities which I found a bit strange but I guess it’s a typical example of the gentrification that’s going on across parts of London. Anyway, I took my cute pics outside and kept it moving, safe for the aesthetics x

This look is a fave of mine; it’s a tad bit tomboy but still a bit girly which I’ve come to realise is my “look”; tomboy but make it cute. I found the pink, pleated skirt in my local (now not so local) charity shop for a few quid and got the top and denim jacket from sample sales at work! The skirt is quite a loud number but I love the shiny, foil texture and shade of pink; you’ll definitely turn some heads in something like this. Also, how cool is this denim jacket?! I low key high key wish I customised it myself but unfortunately not. I got it for a fiver and whenever I wear it I get tonnes of compliments!

The bag is another sample sale item (I was addicted to those sales lol) which compliments the skirt so well and is small but very handy and spacious. Teeny bags are in right now and I’m trying to build a little collection cos who doesn’t love miniature things! Mine’s from Toyshop but I know Zara have some really cute ones at the moment…

What I Wore:
T-shirt – Sample Sale
Skirt – Thrifted (H&M)
Jacket – Topshop Sample Sale
Trainers – Fila

So these past few months have been crazy, like a whole lot has occurred. I’ve moved into a new flat with my sis, lost a dear uncle, quit my job without having another one lined up (long story lol) and God’s just been revealing A LOT to me recently. I’ve also had some really low moments about my career/Revival/where I’m heading in life but God is good and I’ve found loads of encouragement and comfort in His Word. Truly “letting go and letting God” is scary but also very liberating and I’ve defo been exercising my faith muscles over the past couple of months. If you’re scared about pursuing something, publishing work, taking a risk, whatever it maybe, please JUST DO IT (word to Nike & Colin Kaepernick). Life is honestly too short. Push yourself and gtfo of that comfort zone! Anyway, I’m really looking forward to starting my new job next week as well as doing my own thing with Revival and just wanted to spread some encouragement to you guys.

P.S. I was going to wear this to LFW but I literally couldn’t be bothered this year lol if you went, how was it for you?
