gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!

The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 











For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.




Although my colours were gelati based, I can confirm that there was no gelati consumed on this day! We enjoyed our time relaxing, laughing and sharing stories with family. Overall, it was a perfect day!

Hope that you have all had a magical weekend!

Yours in style,

Suzi x

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Ralph Lauren, Shirt-Jolet, Skirt-Yeojin Bae, Ballet Flats-Repetto.

  18. The colours in this look are seriously stunning together. Loving the soft pink accented with the hot pink, and the addition of mustard was unexpected but genius!
