Summer arrived in full force this week and I'm staying cool in this cutesy romper and my go-to Panama hat. I don't wear black very often in the summer but it works when it's lightened up with natural, textured accessories and a pop of colour. How do you wear black for summer?

The moment I read Monika's post about the peony farm she visited, I knew I had to go. Eleanor and I made the trip out to Flowers From A Country Garden and were immediately in flower heaven. There were buckets of peonies in all shades and the hardest part was deciding what colour to take home. We shot these photos on the farm's beautiful grounds and I love the way they turned out. I'll definitely be back in the summer to pick up some sunflowers once they're in bloom.

When I posted a flat layout of this #ootd on Instagram it drummed up a lot of interest, which is why I decided it should become its own outfit post on the blog. I've been wearing a lot of HRH Collection clothing as of late because the pieces have an effortless flow and ease that I'm looking for as the weather gets warmer. The fact that it feels like I'm wearing pyjamas is an added bonus.

Palm Print

I've loved palm trees from the moment I first laid eyes on them and the infatuation has only grown over the years. My travel destinations almost always include a place where they grow abundantly so that I can revel in their tropical presence (and take lots of photos of them too). It's no surprise that I'm drawn to clothing and accessories with pretty palm patterns - my favourite is the romper with the adorable pom pom hem. You can shop more of my palm picks below!
