Of Unicorns And Rainbow Stripes

00:42










Chroma dress in white - Unif
chunky boots - H&M
unicorn print backpack - Skinnydip London
sunglasses - Quay Australia
denim jacket - Rokit Vintage
lipstick - MAC "Russian Red"

A friend of mine recently told me that I'm "a total unicorn, more and more so by the day" and what with the amount of colourful and rainbow themed clothing that I've been wearing lately, I kind of see their point. The bright colour bug has officially bitten me and you know what? I love it. As a former emo kid, these are words I never thought I'd speak - 14 year old Cara would choke on her Monster energy drink and laugh sourly if I'd have told her about this style epiphany that would happen 6 years later. But in reality, dressing colourful and vibrant makes me really happy. I get a weird thrill when I see someone in a crowd of people dressed in dark colours who stands out due to a bright jacket, it's just one of those simple things that brings a smile to my face. I decided to go full unicorn with this backpack which I've featured before and just love - pink and glittery with my favourite mythical creature on? Obsessed. I thought it looked perfect with the colours of this Unif dress which is definitely my new favourite spring piece. The material is thick enough to wear in England without catching a chill, especially if you wear it sans tights as I've done here; I love how it looks grunged up with my trusty black chunky boots, a denim jacket and these amazing sunglasses from Quay Australia.
