#MillenialPink : A trip to Peggy Porschen

#MillenialPink : A trip to Peggy Porschen

It’s no secret I love colour. But pink? It’s just not something I wear.

However, a trip to the beautiful Peggy Porschen cake shop in London meant it was time to face my fears and embrace #MillenialPink.

Millenial pink is a big ‘thing’ right now. According to The Guardian (so this must be legit) the exact colour is a “sort of a grapefruit shade of apricotty salmon”. Make sense?

If you’re a fan of Wes Anderson, then this is probably the colour for you. I couldn’t find the dress on the Zara website to link for you, but I have seen it in the sale section of a few stores. Go go go!

I don’t have an issue with Millenial pink per se, but I’m still not convinced it’s me. Orange and pink can be a cool combination, but this is a colour I’m wary of because of my hair. However, I am a big believer of never saying no to an outfit, and breaking all the style rules. If nothing else, I did feel very pretty!

Now these boots definitely deserve a shout out. I’ve been waiting my whole life (OK, about six months but who’s counting?) for the perfect skin coloured sock boots. I really like this style of shoe, but with my stumpy wee legs black ones can cut me off a little bit.

These boots, however, really do have a leg-lengthening effect. I am also in love with the contrast gold heels. C’est tres chic!

Now let’s get on to Peggy Porschen. This tiny little cake shop in a quiet area of Kensington is somewhat of an Instagram icon. With it’s beautiful floral doorway, picture-perfect cakes and, of course, the Millenial pink exterior it’s easy to see why fashionistas are flocking here.

I was actually really impressed with the quality of the cake here. When somewhere has a cult following like this, it would be easy to compromise on quality, but the cake really was delightful!

A word of warning: Peggy Porschen is always busy. We went on a weekday evening and were given a table within ten minutes. Definitely go early or go late if you’re after your own Instagram shots/ enormous slab of cake.

Now go and embrace your style fears (and reward yourself with cake!)

    I love Public Desire’s boots this season, and these look amazing with your outfit! Also, if that dress was available in Black, I’d be all over it in an instant xx

      I do love Public Desire! Agree this dress would be killer in black – I reckon you’ll find similar on Boohoo or New Look xx
