The storming of the Pastille

The storming of the Pastille

See what I did there?… “Pastille” …”Bastille”…

The Bastille: French revolution… I should have been studying, but I made this edit instead.

What I like about this, though, is that these pastel colours remind me of pre-revolutionary France… Marie Antoinette, tea parties, pretty gardens and colourful, dainty desserts in Versaille…

Also, Pastel colours are taking the fashion scene by storm overseas especially with the warmer months settling in in Europe and the US.

The Bastille was stormed on the 14th of July, 1789, marking Bastille Day…

We are less than a month shy of July…

Coinsidence? I think not!

Would you look at that? together, we’re studying for History revolutions!

I guess sometimes (like now), things can subconsciously link together, and I kind of love it when that happens!
