When it comes to buying anything over a fiver, I have a routine. It starts with lust: often a short-lived sensation, which finishes when I see the next must-have; if I leave the shop still remembering it exists, we're onto a winner. Then it's time to go back and ask myself if I really need it. More often than not, I tell myself it's necessary to further my existence, and head straight to the changing rooms. After inspecting from every angle, it's time to ask the internet if it's a good idea (come on, we all have), and after you group of enablers have told me that I need it too, it's off to the tills to hand over my weeping visa. That's what happened when it came to these shorts, and I haven't quite got round to shopper's remorse (the next stage). Soon enough, I was whipping out these Surfdome Cheap Monday sunglasses and my favourite white tee, and dragging my mum over to Writtle sunflowers to take some photos in their natural habitat. And, you know, to get some sunflowers. They're quite nice.

Apart from spending time among my flowery pals this week, I travelled up to Kendal for a long weekend to visit Clarity, and Sita popped over for the day too, - a true university reunion! We spent one of the days in Windermere, wandering along some rather steep hills to Beatrix Potter's house to explore where she'd written Peter Rabbit and, my favourite, the Tailor of Gloucester. Of course it would be my "sensible shoes" which ended up giving me a blister, but it was lovely to spend a while somewhere new and eat a lot of olives!

I did spend the entirety of my Lake District adventures in jeans, but in the spirit of this post (and cancelled Saturday night plans) I scoured the internet for some of my favourite patterned shorts, let me know if you find any more good'uns.

  1. What a beaut location for photographs! You look lovely in those shorts and I'm now fully in love with them. I definitely think I go through those same stages when it comes to clothes I like but these don't warrant buyer's remorse! Xoxo

    P.S if you keep buying things the shopper's remorse may never catch up with you. hows that for logic. heh

  10. what a perfect location for the photos, and such a gorgeous print! <3 I often get buyers remorse but as long as you were the item a lot I think it's worth it, it's only bad when you wear the thing once and forget about it! xx

  14. You look wonderful and these shorts are amazing! Your talk of your buying process made me laugh - I'm the same and yet often it occurs in a charity shop (cue lots of wishing that they'll still be there when I return!)

Those sunflower shorts are truly incredible (wearing shorts makes me nervous - BUT I WOULDN'T EVEN CARE ABOUT HOW MY LEGS WEARING THESE) and I loveee your boots!
