Spontaneous Countryside Walk

22 June 2017

Since the weather has been so nice the past few days, Harry and I decided to go on a spontaneous trip up the countryside to the hills. In Folkestone, we are lucky enough to have the coast one side and the countryside on the other, so we have a choice of either going to the beach or climbing/hiking up the hills in the countryside. As we lived in Chatham for the past two years, we desperately missed the countryside and so we decided it would be a nice idea to walk up the hills and make the most of the sun!

As much as I knew it would be best to wear my trusty Vans up the hills, I still wanted to wear these studded sandals (Topshop) because I love them and they are so comfy! Will most likely create an outfit/style post featuring them soon!

However, I did end up changing into my Vans as soon as we got there. Another slight error with my outfit is that I stupidly wore a skirt. I completely misjudged the wind and ended up having to use my denim jacket to hold it down whilst we walked. Only I would think it would be a good idea to wear a skirt when I knew I would be walking/climbing up the hills... haha

The bag Harry is wearing is actually a DJI drone case, we were hoping to fly the drone up the hills but again, we misjudged the strength of the wind.

We didn't choose a specific nature path to follow, we decided to follow wherever the path took us. However, there are different paths you can follow that will lead you to specfic places and areas in Kent. For example, the North Downs Way is a National Trail that will eventually lead you to Dover from Folkestone. I think it would be nice to actaully follow one of the routes one day and see where we end up.

Of course, I had to stop and take loads of photos of the flowers! :)

After walking for near on two hours, we couldn't take the heat anymore and we both needed food and drink. We decided to take the back road rather than trek through the hills again and we come across this pretty lane! There were so many bright and colourful flowers that I had to stop and take more photos...I think I'm obsessed.

It was so nice just wandering through the countryside and leaving the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a couple of hours. It was so hot but it was worth it! We're planning to go for a longer walk and maybe follow one of the national trails next time and I will actually dress appropriately and take lots of water and snacks with us!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it! It's a little different to what I usually post but I'm wanting to expand into the lifestyle more as well as my usual fashion/style posts. Let me know what you think! :)

Have a wonderful day!
