So the LBC topics tend to come round a little, as there was a similar one to this in November, but I think that’s a good thing, especially with coords. It’s always good to revisit similar themes to see what we’ve done before and compare it with our current take on it. This allows us to grow and to better our coording skills instead of getting stuck in a rut.
Now, although I have a very sweet tooth, I find it hard to choose just one dessert that is my favourite. I literally am like a kid in a sweet shop when it comes to choosing desserts and cakes. So instead of trying to figure that one out I wanted to force an additional theme on myself and go for a pancake-themed coord in light of Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) taking place later this month. But then I realised that I don’t have enough things to make this coord scream “pancakes” at me, so, being very lazy and not wanting to take out a different dress, picked at the cupcakes in the print instead. This whole trying to be different and not going down the easy route will one day catch up with me, but in the meantime it’s great at forcing me to push my coording skills further!

In a way cupcakes are my favourite dessert, but not so much to eat as to make. They are so easy to customise and you don’t get the usual cake fuss of people saying “cut me a small slice, please”, you just give them one cupcake and everyone’s happy. Plus they’re so easy that anyone and everyone could make cupcakes, which makes them more fun as more people could enjoy them or enjoy giving them to others.
I realise that this coord is incomplete, but having said that: the full back shirring make it great for indulging so I could wear it for Pancake Day. And that’s spent at home, so I wouldn’t need shoes anyway. Lousy excuse, I know, but really, except for the shoes and wristwear I am quite happy with how it turned out. I’m not sure if I would actually wear that, it feels… dunno, not-enough-blue-or-red and a little too-much-pink-and-yellow for my liking, but I still like it.

miniscule, I love it to bits and had to include it.
What’s your favourite dessert? Or do you not have a sweet tooth at all? Have you ever done a coord inspired by a favourite dessert of yours? Let me know and share photos, if you have any, I’d love to see.
