We Ran Past Strawberry Fields and Smelt the Summertime

This weekend me and my friend Kirsi went to visit our local farm. (yes, there are farms in London) Despite it being a two minute drive away, I haven't visited since I was a child, so thought it was about time I went back! Especially as strawberry season must be coming to an end very soon! It was another hot and sunny day (what is happening to England?!), and we found ourselves enticed by all the yummy looking fruit. We picked strawberries, raspberries and plums - and I found out that I really do not like blackberries. We both decided that the strawberries were definitely the best, and I couldn't help it if a few extra fell into my mouth on my way around the field! (in all seriousness, sampling is aloud but don't eat a basketful without paying!) I love finding things to do in my local area (hence most of my blog), or just within the UK, especially if they don't cost much to do but are really fun. I'm not going abroad this Summer, but I think you can have just as much fun having a 'staycation'. So if you have a local farm near you, then I really suggest paying it a visit and picking your own fruit and vegetables as it's really enjoyable, and you'd be supporting your local community too! We had so much fun that we're already planning another trip very soon. On this day I paired my ASOS Curve gingham skirt with my gingham crop t-shirt from New Look - the gingham prints don't completely match but I think I can just about get away with tricking people into thinking its a dress. If not, I'm not that bothered. Also, I just want to point out that the title of this post is lyrics from my favourite ever McFly song (they're my favourite band if you didn't already know), and it means a lot to me. Anyway, until next time.


  1. Growing up in North Yorkshire, I used to love going to the PYO farms; I have such lovely memories of being a child and eating my way up the strawberry fields. Since moving to Ireland, I've struggled to find any which is such a shame. Looks like you had a lovely day, and I LOVE your outfit xx

    1. Awww, thats so sweet - I remember doing that as a child too. I'm surprised that there's not many PYO farms in Ireland, thats a shame! Thank you very much :) xx
