The Shoot

The Shoot: South Bank Festival of Love

Hello world,

So what do you wear when the heat is topping the high twenties, it’s sticky and muggy and there’s barely any wind in the city to help cool you down? A peasant dress of course! On those lazy hot sunny days when there’s nothing to do except have a nice cool drink in a park or find an open air pool to go swimming in, you need something relaxed and light that won’t have you sweating your ass off. This dress was a life-saver for those types of days and is also quite stylish if styled with a pair of cool slip-on trainers and a bit of jewellery.

South Bank thankfully is a lot cooler than most parts of the city because it’s right on the river Thames, and it meant I also got to explore some of their installations for their Festival of Love. I love the Agape tunnel, and the structures made of coloured bands was also very cool. Definitely worth checking out!

Until then,




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.
