Yesterday it was Fathers Day, an international holiday to honour and appreciate all the dads around the world. Me and my sister went into London with our dad and had a great time - we originally intended on going to the hugely popular David Bowie exhibition at the V&A Museum but it sold out ridiculously fast despite us getting there early. Sad times :( However this didn't ruin our day as we checked out the rest of the museum (highlights for me were my beloved Fashion room and the amazing Theatre & Performance exhibits) and the Natural History Museum before catching the tube to walk over Tower Bridge and soak up the London atmosphere. Then in the afternoon I baked a very delicious but very naughty chocolate cake, which everyone loved (thank God!).
I always like to make a statement with my outfits but when I go into the city I always take it up a notch, as London is a place that - for me - oozes with creativity and inspiration. I was thinking back to what it must have been like to live there in the 70s and 80s when neon colours and crazy prints reigned supreme and people took all sorts of risks with their fashion choices. Bearing this in mind, I decided to combine this boldness with some of the season's biggest trends - neon, citrus brights, monochrome and stripes. I bought this shirt from Monki online a few days ago and I had mixed feelings on its arrival, as it's very oversized and the style of the sleeves isn't what I would normally go for. However I adore the freshness and vibrancy of the lime green colour and the crepe paper esque texture of the fabric is different from other shirts that I own. As the top is so bright I decided to mix it up a bit and tuck it into my Jordan-by-Motel inspired ASOS jeans. These jeans are great as they give any outfit a sort of 80s/90s throwback but are still uber on trend and serve as a great alternative to normal black skinnies. I decided to wear my white flatforms with the outfit as they're a bit more unexpected than a pair of black shoes plus the 2.5 inch sole gives me a bit height.
