Wearing – Madewell dress (similar), Bul shoes
Flashback to that time we played with light, shadows and hair in Hyde Park.
Plus I’d just rewarded myself with these new sandals after receiving some unexpected good news.
It was a pretty cool afternoon.

Lately, Jinn and I have been trying to push our creative boundaries, and the dappled sunlight through the maple trees in Hyde Park made for some fun and games and some pretty cool pics. The deep black shadows and spring’s new sun made for some beautiful contrasting light and shade. After what seemed to be the most dragged out winter ever, the warmth on the top of my head and the tips of my bare shoulders was more than welcome.

Wearing – Marcs dress (this season’s version), Wolford merino tights, Madewell boots
This red dress is one of my favourites. Gorgeous colour, great shape and fabric, and a skirt that falls just so. So why does it often hang neglected and overlooked in my closet? Well, this dress has “history”. I bought it last year for one express purpose – for an exam. And not just any old exam. For the single most scariest exam I’ve ever done in my whole entire life. No joke. Just thinking about the whole process leading up to it and the day itself is giving me the heebie jeebies. Thank God I passed, but even so the entire experience was so traumatic that my hand would try not to linger over its hanger whenever I came across it in my wardrobe, and I’d always find an excuse to wear something else.
Well, it’s been eight months since that-day-which-shall-no-longer-be-mentioned and I decided that it was time that the curse be lifted. And once I slipped this dress back on, I realised what a fool I’d been to let it languish behind lesser dresses. It’s effortlessly elegant, can be dressed up or down, and is so so soooo comfortable.
On another note, this was one of the few days during our holiday that I could venture safely out without a heavy coat in tow. We’d just eaten at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (for free!) and just hopped across the street into Hyde Park to enjoy the snippet of sunshine and admire the daffodils and giNORmous white swans. They’re twice the size of our black swans! The sunshine, the greenery and the sugar high we were still on made for a lovely, laughter-filled afternoon (probably more like giggles and snorts) and off we trotted on our merry way.
