California Dreamin'

I honestly do think that the months and months of cold and gloom that England must suffer through all becomes worth it when the sun shines. 

And as someone who loathes being cooped up inside during the Winter months, there's nothing better than going for a walk in the beautiful Sussex countryside...oh, and taking advantage of all my Summer outfits!

Digital Printed Skort, Miss Selfridge ~ Black 90s Square Crop Top, Miss Selfridge ~ Stone Leather Cross Strap Wedges, New Look

This is the season of skorts and I am most definitely addicted. Miss Selfridge currently have a massive selection in all different colours, but I went with this beautiful Palm themed, silky number.

Not only is the pattern beautiful - it reminds me of those old Chinese watercolour paintings mixed with a tropical getaway - but being shorts means I can leap, bound and climb rocks till my heart's content. 

I paired this with a black crop top, another style which comes in an abundance of colours in Miss Selfridge. You could also wear a peach, purple or turquoise one due to all the different colours in the skort. 

All those palm trees make me yearn for a holiday again. I suppose I can settle for oak trees, though...

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
