YES! another gorgeous day of sunshine and hot enough to wear a play/ romper/ jump suit! Jonathan and I had been planning to go strawberry picking for ages now and when I finished work the other day we set off. What an epic fail that was! I think I tempted fate wearing the strawberry print, only for us to arrive at the gates and for a giant sign to say 'NO STRAWBERRIES'. Both letting out a cry of 'nooooooo!' and a few other less choice words...naturally.
What do you mean there's no strawberries left to pick? Grow some more!? Don't you know I'm a strawberry fan? See look I'm wearing a strawberry suit. Gutted.
There were other things to pick such as rhubarb, blackberries, runner beans....but that's just not the same really. (My true inner 8 year old spoilt brat coming out here!). I was gutted as I have never been strawberry picking in my life- It's on my life list (that and milking a cow at some point!).
To cheer ourselves up we walked next door to the local garden centre to check out the Aqautica section. Which has always been my favourite part of a good garden centre- checking out the fish! Giant £90.00 Koi anyone? That instantly lifted our spirits- It's fair to say Jon was equally as gutted he had been waiting around all day for me to come home and go. After wondering around the garden centre we did actually come across some 'plant your own' strawberries! Hurray!
I simply adore this playsuit that I picked up for absolutely nothing last year in the ASDA George sale. I have never bought anything before from their clothing section but this print is perfect and it's one I won't be throwing away any time soon. I was seriously impressed with the fit and design of it having a draw string waist and pretty criss cross back detail.
