My favourite place.

Sunday, 5 June 2011



There's a little park just around the corner from my house, where I like to go often, to clear my head. It's quiet and peaceful. I decided today to take my books with me on my little trip to it, as I felt I'd be able to get some work done. I've never been much of a library person, don't ask why, I much prefer to study in my room with some soft music playing, or at Starbucks with the hazey voices of other coffee lovers in the background. I recently discovered that studying here yields just as good results. The quiet whisper of the wind blowing is so soothing to the ear, and the occasional appearance of the sun lights up the place beautifully.
It's also a great location for me to take pictures of pretty flowers and ofcourse, my outfits (Remember TWEEDily Dee?). I snapped these shots just as the time came for me to leave my favourite place...

Tee : H&M
Scarf : Vintage
Shorts : DIY
Belt : Primark
Boots : Peacocks
Rings & Things : Topshop, Primark & Gift Girls
