Summertime sadness.

There's something really nostalgic about summer. It might just be me but I find the hazy long light days always remind me of previous summers, and the temperatures rising mean I always feel a little more energised, a little more adventurous and a whole lot more positive. I find myself being much more appreciative of the smaller things in life, I've only recently discovered that there really is beauty everywhere if you look hard enough so this afternoon I spent a bit of time sorting out the flowerbeds in the garden, it's a relatively boring task and not one I particularly enjoy but I love being able to sit and reflect in the garden surrounded by pretty flowers so in the long run it's definitely worthwhile.

Today's outfit, I'm not ashamed to say, is completely from F&F - minus the hat and DM's. I have so much love for the F&F line, it's fast fashion at it's finest and they're also great for staple buys. Gone are the days of supermarket snobbery in my eyes, I remember going to see John Bishop a few years ago and remember him joking about only parents buying their clothes in a supermarket. Wrong. I'll sometimes specifically go to Tesco to look at the clothes, the skirt in this post is one I've featured before but I love it. There's something really whimsical about it and I love the fact it can be styled up or down. And the tee speaks for itself and the slogan lends itself well to the way summertime sparks the adventurer in me. Take me somewhere exciting, filled with pretty sights and iconic buildings and I'll love you forever.

Would you ever buy your clothes from a supermarket? And how does summertime make you feel?

Hope you lovelies have all had a good Monday!

    Last summer I bought two heart print dresses from F&F and I love them to bits, and wear them so much xo
