Happy Pride Month! June is always a contrast between pure joy and stress for me. On one hand LGBTQ+ issues are at the forefront around the world and rainbows fill the streets and my social feeds, on the other hand Pride in London happens in the first week of July and as I am part of the year-round volunteer team I spend the whole in meetings, sending emails and not getting enough sleep. It’s hard work but it’s all worth it to such an awesome day happen.
On the day itself I never really get a chance to wear anything fun pride fashion as I’m in my Pride in London volunteer t-shirt and black shorts so I have enough pockets so I make up for it by wearing as much colour as possible in the run-up! I have a few go-to outfits for the events I’m at beforehand and this colourful yet casual outfit is one of my absolute favourites!
This skirt is from one of my favourite brands Collectif. You will have seen me wearing Collecftif in a few past posts including Relaxed Rockabilly Styling, Pin Up Picnic in the Park and Autumn in Spring. This skirt is one of my absolute favourites at the moment, it’s a classic 50’s swing skirt with striped rainbow pastels, what more could I want! It’s super lightweight cotton so it’s perfect for summer and it’s really comfortable, plus it has pockets!
The t-shirt is from the Pride in London shop currently on Neal Street and it’s my favourite design that they’ve created so far. The colours are bright yet not your typical rainbow colours and I love the London slogan. I’ve always been a sucker for a coloured sleeve cap, it brings out the pop-punk lover in me.
The shoes make this outfit more formal then my usual every day look, I am awful at wearing heels but these Hotter Donna heels*** are padded inside and come in regular and wide fit so they are amazingly comfortable and I love this pastel shade of blue. The cut seems a bit 60’s to me and I love how feminine they are, the swede is beautifully soft.
Finally, I got this cap on Amazon after learning my lesson with not wearing a hat one year at Pride and almost fainting in the heat, never again! It’s a snapback but I am too old to wear it forward without looking a little odd but I think I can just about get away with it like this. This is the one part of this pride fashion outfit I will actually get to wear on the day!
So that’s my favourite pride fashion rainbow inspired everyday princess look, what do you think? What will you be wearing for Pride?
