It’s been a complete whirlwind since we touched back down on UK soil and we haven’t given ourselves much of a chance to breathe. In-between Mr. C returning back to work, the nursery run and an abundance of catch ups with our friends, we’ve not had much of a chance to spend quality time as a family. We started to feel ourselves being pulled back into the hectic, bustling pace that is so present in UK culture, so we decided to put the brakes on. Taking full advantage of the glorious springtime sunshine, we packed up a picnic, dug out a forgotten frisbee hidden in a crevice of the garage and headed down to a local riverbank to just be.
Spring is my favourite time of year in the United Kingdom. Woodlands are graced with carpets of bluebells, roadsides are adorned with wildflowers and grasses thrive at the sides of our riverbanks. I have so many fond memories of walking through woodlands with my grandad and flying kites on hilltops decorated with historic ruins and towering oak trees, so for me the English countryside is incredibly special. Having such fond memories of the English countryside only makes it even more wonderful that I am now able to make so many treasured memories there with my own children.
Now the sun is shining, it gives the perfect opportunity to spend more time in the country with my little tribe and it also means that I get to wear a light, springtime outfits as well. I love nothing more than wearing colourful, airy clothes for days of fun in the sunshine.
I’m not really one for high maintenance outfits and love piecing together looks that have a pop of colour, but are generally quite low key. I bought these shorts from Miss Selfridge when we got back to the UK and decided to dress it with a simple white vest, delicate gold necklace and white classic Vans. I love the light floral print that will carry so well into the warmer summer months and I thought the musty coloured yellow seemed so fitting with the English countryside.
Fingers crossed for a good summer, so we can spend more lazy weekends in the country and I get the perfect excuse for wearing more light and airy florals.
