“So come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings forever in never never land” – J.M Barrie
Growing up, Peter Pan was my absolute favourite film to watch and even to this day, I am still so in love with this fairytale and the message and feelings it evokes. It is a classic, remaining forever timeless as it continues, no doubt, to transcend through generation after generation. It allows us, if only for a minute, a moment of pure escapism – which I certainly think we could all do with at some point.
Strolling through Hyde Park on a particularly cold morning, we stumbled across this statue of Peter Pan and I must admit, although I had seen pictures – I’d completely forgotten it had been placed here, in the heart of London. Although simple and located beside a small pathway overlooking the Thames, it still resonates that this story (despite being wonderfully fictional) has created such passion and enough sentiment that it deserves a spot right in the heart of the capital for people all over the world to see.
A morning stroll through London – on a particularly cold day – calls for a fairly simple, comfy outfit and messy bun. I love layers on a day like this with mixed neutrals. I’ve had this coat, once upon a time from H&M, for quite a few years now but it’s lasted me so well. Paired with a simple white tee from Zara and a baggy grey cardigan I recently picked up from TK Maxx and this is definitely the epitome of a comfy outfit for me. For a bit of interesting detail, I wore this long gold tassel chain that I actually saw in Tesco the other day whilst doing the weekly shop. It’s something so different, looks great with a long cardigan and I picked it up for a mere £3 – I just love finds like this!
