Open Gardens is one of my favourite times of year. This is for 2 reasons
Open Gardens events are actually an untapped source of amazing home made cake and eating cake in gardens whilst looking at gardens is the best possible situation to be in. Its very difficult to imagine better situations!!! But… we have! In Wirksworth (gem of the peak) you can also pop into AIRR Clothing and look at some organic fair trade and ethically sourced clothing as well! On a more serious not, this clothing is almost always from fibres that are grown naturally without chemicals or pesticides and from seeds that can be propagated (check out http://seedfreedom.info/ for more information on why thats so important).
Also while you are looking at flowers you may as well be wearing some beautiful floral prints! Here is a selection of outfits to wear to an open gardens event or even just around about!
If you fancy a vintage approach to florals, this pairing of an Orla Kiely vintage print top and wider leg trousers would look great with platforms or clog style sandals and a pair of classic sunny’s;-
Or for a more traditional floral print, these Komodo Elish Trousers go beautifully with the navy Ruth top from People Tree, wear with sandals for a casual look, but this outfit could be put with a blazer and heels for a more formal occasion. Alternatively you could pair this top with this skirt in the same print.
