Vintage style floral box bag: Primark
Blue gingham skirt: H&M
Knee-high socks: Primark

I was contemplating whether to pull up the knee-high socks or leave them scrunched at the bottom. I decided on the latter, something I've never done before. Even back in school, my socks were always neatly folded at my ankles (as per the school uniform rules). I did get several odd glances (British people are much too polite to stare) today, but I tried to stroll on confidently. I'll admit though, that I was a tad bit self-conscious.
As we were walking pass French Connection, as if to justify my style, I pointed at the mannequins wearing heels with socks...
Me: See! Socks and shoes! It's fashion!
The boyf: *lifts one leg up* Yeah, socks and shoes.
He was, of course, wearing socks and sneakers...just like every day -_- "
Anywayz, pretty cherry blossoms are a-blooming everywhere! Yayyyyy!! I love cherry blossoms!!!
When I'm a little less busy with Uni work (hopefully, that would be before the end of spring ha-ha), I will go around and snap some pictures. Last year, there were some really beautiful pinkish/purplish cherry blossoms not too far from my place and I really can't wait to see those again. Meanwhile, here are the very, very pale pink ones.
By the way, I know I said I would blog about Japan Day, but I'm still waiting for the official yukata pictures to be sent to me. I didn't want to bug the organizers because I know there were tons of people queuing up on that day, so I'm sure they have a huge pile to go through. I will just wait for a couple more days to see if I get them, if not I will just use my non-pro pictures :)
