Picnic in the Lavender Fields!

Looking for a perfect summer adventure in London before the warm sunny season ends?  I've got just the thing!  Grab a friend, pack a picnic and follow me to Mayfield Lavender Farm!

Imagine standing in rows and rows upon fragrant lavender.  It had me feeling like I was in Provence, France, the lavender capital of the world. However, we were actually still in London, less than fifteen miles away from the city!  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Lavender as far as you could see!  I wish there was a button I could press that would allow you to smell that crisp, sweet, fresh aroma.  It was so intoxicating!

I spent the afternoon with Keara Ellen Photography twirling through the lavender fields. Unfortunately for us it was a typical English summer day as it was quite cloudy, however it was still incredibly warm day and the sun even broke through the clouds later in the afternoon. It was the perfect excuse to wear my new Floweret Falling Off-shoulder Dress from Chicwish. If you're looking for the best place to pick up a cute summer frock then look no further than Chicwish, I love their classic and girly style!

If you didn't have time to pack a picnic, there’s a little cafe selling cakes and lavender ice cream! However I picked up a few of my favorite sweet treats before hand from Marks and Spencer. They also have little shop on site. They sell bunches of dried lavender, aromatic soaps, and essential oils. A perfect place to pick up that last minute souvenir before heading home.

A little rosé amongst the lavender....why not!

Grab your favourite picnic partner and be sure to immerse yourself in natures beauty before the summer’s over! The lavender farm is in full bloom from July until late September.
