One of my favourite times of year has to be when the blossom is in full bloom. I’m a sucker for the pale pink, candy pink, vibrant pink and white blossom that looks like candyfloss and clouds in the trees. I just love how pretty it looks on the tree, how magical it looks when it swirls around when it drops to the ground, and also, surprisingly I love how quickly it fades, as somehow that makes it more beautiful.

Then came the time of the cropped jeans, a whole summer dedicated to the shorter style.
