Sunday

Adventuring in Polka Dots

This time last week Sebastian and I spent the day with our mothers. But in between our second visit to my mothers at the cottage, we went for a stroll and soaked up the beautiful Spring weather.
There is a lovely track that runs behind my mothers cottage and loops up to the main road. It is the sweetest walk filled with lovely old cottages and old loving horses.
What better way to show off my fancy new 'Polka Pants', frolicking through the twigged trees and blossoming branches. 
I went for a little retail therapy recently, badly in need of a whole new wardrobe due to all my clothes either not fitting nicely or no longer appealing to me. So when mother and I visited the cobbled streets of Canterbury last week I just had to purchase a few treats from Topshop. I needed some pretty tops to go with these darling new trousers after all!
These sweet Spotted Slim Jeans* are from Great Plains and are quite easily THE most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. The good thing about them is that they look more like trousers than jeans and you can create a smart look by teaming them with a nice white shirt.
I teamed my Navy and Buttermilk pair with some two-year-old gold Primark sandals (I am dreading the day they die!) and my new Pink Crepe top and light knitted grey jumper. It is the perfect outfit for exploring the winding paths and for horse spotting on a lovely Spring afternoon. All that was needed was a little more sunshine.
I had never heard of Great Plains before now, and I am in love. They have some wonderful pieces like the canvas brogues and Peppermint cotton jeans which are on my ever growing Summer wishlist. Great Plains are about simple shapes but in beautiful pastel shades and fun prints like the strawberry fields and the village houses. It is just a perfect Spring Summer wardrobe.
I am keeping my beady eye on the beautiful buttermilk canvas shoes as they would go perfectly with these pretty polka pants.
It's my birthday next week and I cannot wait to go shopping for new clothes and prepare for Paris. It really has been so long since I updated my wardrobe space... I have had a nice ol' clear out this weekend so watch out Ebay!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday lovelies. I am off to buy groceries and snuggle up to Sebastian with a yummy Spaghetti Bolognese tonight.

  10. Such gorgeous pictures, it makes me want to go on a stroll around my area. There are some lovely country sights but I tend to take it all for granted. I love the outfit too, I know how you feel about the clothes! My wardrobe is in desperate need of an update and I've been slowly clearing out my clothes and trying to determine what I need more or less of. I'm such a hoarder so it makes it a bit difficult! x
