The Throwback

The Throwback: Decorative Day in Kensington

Hello world,

This post might need some explanation, so I’ll try and make it quick. When I discovered I was pregnant two years ago and decided to put this blog on hold, I still had quite a few different shoots left on my laptop that had never been published. Some are ones that I thought weren’t high enough in quality to deserve to go on the blog, some only had a couple of images and some were perfectly fantastic like the one I’m posting today. It seems foolish not to eventually post them online, but I can’t just throw them up any time of the day as the clothes are definitely not in the shops anymore and some trends are out of style by now.

That’s where the idea of ‘Throwback Thursday’ comes in very handy. I’m not much of an Instagram user, so I don’t know if I can use the term on a blog, but we’ll just go with it.

Today’s shoot was done about a month before I was pregnant and the skirt I still have in my wardrobe, waiting for the day I can finally fit back in it. It was a lovely morning spent wandering through Kensington gardens and enjoying the May sunshine, eating the most delicious chocolate orange cake I’ve had in a very long time and drinking fancy tea at the Orangerie and photographing the swans.

I was such a big fan of this trend. Louis Vuitton encapsulated this trend the best with their spring/summer 2012 collection and I was a huge fan of it. I loved the mixture of candy colours, decorative lace and the emphasis of the décolletage. So I had to emulate it, and it wasn’t very hard as River Island heavily featured this trend for their spring collections. It was such a feminine and easy trend to follow, and I have to say that before this I never paid pastels much heed, but I still love them to this day.

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
