park life

This is why I love the sunshine!

Yesterday we had a picnic in the park. We took a little portable radio with us so we could listen to some tunes whilst basking in the sun. We ate homemade scones and drank cocktails out the can! 
The strawberries may look amazing but were actually a huge disappointment. I shall definitely be waiting until I can go and pick my own at the fruit farm nearby.

What I wore:
Shirt – H&M
Shorts – H&M
Ballet flats – New Look

I hope you all have had wonderful weekends and have been able to soak up some sun.

    Beautiful photos, sums up perfectly all the best things about the sun being out 🙂 I had Marks and Spencers strawberries during the week as well, so disappointing but picking them at a strawberry farm sounds amazing! xx

    i cant tell you how much i adore scones with jam and cream – let alone home made ones! i completely know what you mean – i cant wait to get some local fruit down me, the strawbs in asda and the like are all a bit tasteless at the mo! id love to see a full length pic of that outfit too – the shirt looks gorgeous. xx

    Gorgeous pictures! I love those cocktails in cans. I had some strawberries today and they were a bit of a let down, although still felt really summery to be eating them outside in the sunshine 🙂 x

    Cocktails in the park sounds like such a fab idea, the perfect use for all this sunshine too 🙂

    Oh Miss Milly 🙂 This is such a lovely post, made me smile!! How I love the sun, it just makes everything happy & everything okay- doesn't it.
    Radio, sun, cocktails & food- love it. Shame about the strawberries though, as they do look srummy.
    I also think I need to come & visit your H&M as you always find & wear so gorgeous pieces, mine doesn't seem to be in the same league

    lovely. still not quite warm enough for a picnic yet where I live a bit too windy. Tomorrow is suppose to be 80 F but also thunder storms so unfortunately I doubt it will be so enjoyable. Love your flats by the way.
