The-Little-Prince-4

All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Growing up, my mum was a librarian. You can’t even begin to imagine the perks of being a librarian’s daughter! I would spend hours in the back room, curled up in a stack of cushions and bean bags, reading my way through a stack of books yet to make it to the shelf. Occasionally, books would be donated, and lucky ol’ me got to have first dibs on whatever I found lurking in the cardboard boxes.

I remember, quite distinctly the day I came across ‘The Little Prince’. Like many (many!) children out there, the book simply seemed to speak to me. To this day, it’s still one of my favourites, and I will sometimes find myself thinking of the golden haired prince as I look up at the stars. It makes me beyond happy that I can proudly wear one of my very favourite books on a daily basis. Now I just need to save up for the Hungry Caterpillar t-shirt – a favourite from childhood, and one I read (often!) with the little children I work with.

No matter what, you can always count on bright colours. They genuinely make you feel so darn happy – and nothing could be better than that! We explored this colourful little corner of the city, which is actually a little entranceway to a group of vintage shops. In my eagerness, we arrived way too early (I’m talking 2-3 hours here!) so had to make do with these gloriously coloured steps instead of hitting up the shops.

I wore an Aristocats scalloped t-shirt from Sheinside, which came at exactly the right time, as I’ve fallen head over heels for the new Paul & Joe collection featuring the felines themselves. It goes pretty perfectly with these ASOS shorts I nabbed in the sale ($12!!) and this stunning vintage bag by Nikita and Vesper. I love all of the pink in this outfit, although the very best thing about it is that I can go around quoting Marie! “Ladies don’t start fights, but they can finish them!
