Sometimes, being a Zone 6-er, I forget how close I really am to the beautiful Kent countryside and more often only realise how close I am when I remember I'm only a couple of stops away from a land far from the Oyster card- gasp, I know. So where better to spend a morning that galavanting around fields of lavender (Dear Hayfever, I am sorry- but look how pretty) and pretending to be local country hikers- only with printed kimonos and inappropriate sandals, right? One thing that was totally appropriate for a morning in the grass were these Dorothy Perkins jeggings (one thing I never thought I'd have in my wardrobe) but a surprisingly comfortable sneaky jean alternative, which I'm pretty sure are already longing for more appearances. On top of that, we made a quick pit stop for some homemade lavender scones (trust me, they're delicious) and the jeggings were even comfortable after indulging in a couple of them too- which means I am truly sold.

  10. Everything is oh so pretty here. I'm with you on the jeggings, I actually sort of accidentally bought a pair, not realising they were officially jeggings and not jeans until I got them home and read the label. I was surprised as I had sort of a different image of them in my mind, but everyone I talk to was the same!

  11. Lavender fields. I always forget we actually have them in England and don't have to go to France to see the pretty. ;)

  32. hmmm I never saw myself as a jeggings girl, but then again I don't enjoy denim very much and usually resort to leggings, so I must try it out! x

  36. these photos are gorgeous! as are you and those jeggings. I think it's just their name that we get stuck on because I received a pair recently, too, from a friend and loved them but swore up and down I would never wear jeggings.
