Carousel me away…

Earlier in the week I took my youngest sister to see the cheesefest that is High school musical. I had promised to take her after she had constantly talked about it for months. I did find it quite amusing at various points in the film when they broke into song but I’ve got to admit, in some ways I was curious to see how the final installment would work on the big screen. Judging by the audience (average age about 6) it went down well and through all the cheesiness it wasn’t too hard to sit through! I might even have to admit that I didn’t hate it, it was ok! Yes I said it…and it’s in writing for all the world to see. Shame on me.

Anyway, swiftly moving on! After plenty of popcorn we ventured outside to the square of my local town centre. In the centre of the square, a carousel had replaced a fountain that used to stand in the same spot. I doubted it’s authenticity but it was in the style of an old fashioned Victorian carousel. I love carousels and especially the enchanting yet ghostly charm that they have. I found it odd that no one was sitting on the carousel but the baby carousel next to it which features a bus, motorbike and fire engine was super busy with excited children. Maybe it’s because when you’re older you learn to appreciate things in a different way but frankly, if I wasn’t wearing a short dress then I would have hopped right onto one of those gorgeous pastel painted horses.

I’m wearing…

Dress (Hong Kong)
Purple Cardigan (Oasis)
Shoes (KG)
Necklace (Urban Outfitters)

I also spotted some boots today which I might just have to buy. They’re nothing special but I’ve been looking for a pair similar to these for a while for every day wear. They’re from Dune and are £80.
