beautiful botanics

One thing you may not know about me is that I enjoy pottering around in our cottage garden, located in the front of our property, in my spare time. I always feel wonderful when I connect with nature in this way.
I also really enjoy spending time walking around beautiful gardens, be it the Melbourne Botanical gardens, Olinda's Rhododendron Gardens orthe Ballarat BotanicalGardens, which happens to be one of my personal favourites. 
Whenever my husband and I travel to Ballarat to visit family, we always make a special trip there. It's just gorgeous! You've got to go if you haven't done so already. The only downsideis thatBallarat can get very cold at this time of the year, so you need to make sure you rug up! 
These pictures were taken on our recent trip to Ballarat, which was on Easter Monday. Hope you enjoythem!
Have a lovely Sunday! I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and catching up with my mum for afternoon tea.
Yours in style,

Ahoy sailor!

Every time I have to go out somewhere on the weekend I think of all of the possible outfit options that would best suit the place I'm going and what I'll be doing while I'm there. I'm my own personal stylist!

The particular place I was going to this morning was a shopping complex to pick up some new woollen throws for our leather couches. My outfit of choice comprised of my favourite striped breton top and my high-waisted jeans. It's a casual look that's very French chic. I love the nautical inspired belt, with its stripes and brass buckle. I wore my new black patent pumps for the first time too. I just adore them!

Last night, my husband and I had a wonderful evening catching up with some dear friends. We enjoyed talking for hours and eating scrumptious Italian culinary delights at Ricardo's Trattoria. I even had the most gorgeous gluten free sticky date pudding imaginable. If you haven't yet been there, you're missing out on something very special. …

Getting Waisted

Picture this: a chic cable knit sweater, skinny jeans and ballet flats. It's a good look good, right? To turn it up a notch, simply add a belt at the waist. I call this look "getting waisted". Here I've chosen a black sequined belt, which actually belongs to a Max & Co skirt I purchased a couple of seasons ago. 











Do you like "getting waisted" too? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment below, so we can keep in touch! 

Well it's hard to believe that the holidays have come and gone. Work for me tomorrow, which admittedly I'm not really looking forward to after two weeks of sleep-ins and relaxation. It's been divine, but I knew this day had to come eventually. 

Wishing you all a week filled with fun and all things fashion.

Made in Switzerland

What's made in Switzerland, is beautifully handcrafted and dates back to 1851? Bally Switzerland, of course! Bally has been bringing its loyal clients some of the most luxurious leatherhandbags and shoes in the world for hundreds of years.

Historical facts and details usually bore me profusely, but not in this case. Bally's heritage is really quite interesting. In fact, the person who began the national globalisation of the brand as we know it today was a man known none other asCarl FranzBally, or Papa Bally, an endearing name used by his colleagues.




Carl's business philosophy was based on creating 'exquisitely craftedfootwear in the finest materials that are divine to look at, whilstsimultaneously functional and enduring.'1No wonder I love their shoes so much!

Over the years, this prestigious brand has been worn by several famous people in history, such as the first man to walk the moon, Neil Armstrong, and mountaineers, Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing. 

How'…
