Think Pink

Worthy top - The Ragged Priest
white tennis skirt - American Apparel
platform high top trainers - New Look via ASOS
rainbow cross body bag - Skinnydip London

Real talk: is there a colour much more divisive than pink? While many love a good blush bomber jacket or fushcia lipstick, a seemingly equal amount of people are quick to dismiss pink as too saccharine or girly for their tastes. Personally I fall firmly into the former category - I'm a pink FIEND. I'm talking taffy coloured walls in my bedroom, an Instax camera the exact shade as Piglet and the tendency to scream "OH MY GOD I NEED THIS" whenever I see anything in a shop that looks like Barbie (the high priestess of the colour) was the designer. That's not even to mention the contents of my wardrobe. It seems this season more than ever I've been wearing pink, as evidenced by my recent purchase of this top. It's from one of my favourite UK independent brands, The Ragged Priest, and is part of their recent A/W drop which is equal parts badass and cute (side note: the slogan on this top is accidentally pretty ironic as when I initially bought it from the Topshop store at Oxford Circus, the patch had half come off the fabric by the time I got home - thank you to the babes at TRP for sending me a replacement ASAP. <3). While I often keep my styling of pink pretty girly and whimsical, I love how it looks grunged up too which seems to be the vibe that The Ragged Priest are aiming for with this collection; making it perfect for those who want to try out the colour but are afraid of looking like an overgrown marshmallow. No shade to marshmallows though. Marshmallows rule.

I thought I'd also share a few photos from the day when I wore this outfit as I had a great afternoon seeing the last day of the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art in Picadilly, checking out Fortnum and Mason's Alice themed windows and eating a delicious vegan dinner - that raw chocolate truffle cake though...

  12. Last year, I loathed anything pink. But earlier this year when it started going on trend and all that shiz, I can call myself a pink fiend as well! I have way too many pink garments in my wardrobe. I got to go inside Fortnum & Mason and the exhibition too whilst I was in London, it was pretty cool!

    I think it's amazing how you can wear pink and still maintain the grunge look! And I would totally sneak into your closet and steal this adorable top! And the bag, too!

    Also, I adore the pictures you took! I really miss England right now :(
