One of the things on my bucket-list is to fulfill my dream of going through with an American road-trip, driving through all the states and rolling through the deserts like Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner. Unfortunately current commitments would have it that I'm bound to the UK; no complaints, but sometimes this 'Londoner' needs to get out of the city. So my blogger bestie Claire (Chouquette) and I decided to pay her old hometown a visit. We took to the road a bottle of coconut water, the latest Porter Magazine issue, an impromptu outfit, and a DSLR and drove straight to Essex. This particular cornfield (now trimmed) is tinged with nostalgia and bittersweet memories for Claire, so it was fittingly endearing that a shoot commenced right here on this very foundation. As scenic as the setting was, I'd be the first to admit that ninety percent of the activities we did were drenched with clichés, then again, I like cliché. For those of you who've been following my Instagram (@the_provoker), you'd have already seen an instavideo of Claire and I joining arms and spinning in circles like fourteen year old girls at a hippie festival... Yep, the gypsy and the tomboy, the pair of us! #sorry. It's the affordable version of Kate and Naomi, Alexa and Poppy, Bonni and Clyde! What made the meadow field all the more perfect was witnessing the gradual country sunset and watch the sky fade pink. Did I feel like I was in a Mulberry ad? No, no, I felt like it was Chloe. The only downside to this all was trying to hop over a barbed fence in bare legs and dungaree shorts; luckily I've checked, both balls still intact. Note to self: bring jeans. Alright, I think I've provided you all with enough context regarding what happened behind the scenes, so now, the clothes. I've unknowingly channeled Alexa Chung today, breton stripes and dungees, need I say more? It's a good look, now approximate and shop it! Then pop on some glittery sandals and compliment these sparkly shoes with an even more sparkly bag. There's nothing quite like a sequin embroidered evil eye clutch that borders on Illuminati references now is there? My penchant for novelty accessories really comes into play here, I'm thinking you better 'watch out' because #ImWatchingYou... #Illuminati.
Thank you Sunita for my beautiful eye clutch!
