It’s probably obvious by now that I can’t wait for summer to be over. As much as I love wearing dresses, having to hide from the sun and feeling hot all the time gets old really fast. Though Melbourne weather is generally pretty terrible, with extremely hot summers, there’s one thing I usually hate about it that actually ends up working in my favour: how unreliable it is.
Last week I went on a trip with my family to spend a few days away in Phillip Island. A little over an hour from Melbourne, it is a very popular tourist spot in Victoria, but I had never been there before. Even though (or should I say especially because?) it was cold, I had an awesome time and really recommend going there for a few days if you can. Seeing the penguins come out of the ocean at night, bringing food for their babies, was probably the highlight of my week there. So adorable!

Last Thursday the boyfriend and I celebrated four years together. Going through pictures of our previous anniversaries I noticed that in all of them I wear an uniform of sorts: jeans, boots, a knit and/or a leather jacket. Turns out this year was no exception, because once again we decided to drive to somewhere pretty where we could just be together and appreciate each other’s company. Lavandula Lavender Farm in Daylesford is a beautiful place for a romantic picnic like ours and the weather was simply perfect. Autumn is truly the best… Even though it is no longer lavender season and the only ones I saw were in the many lavender-flavoured foods on offer. Their lavender lemonade was heavenly! I hope to be back soon so I can see the gardens blooming.
I’d planned a completely different outfit beforehand, but I guess it was just one of those days when I needed a more casual, laid-back look… So I changed out of my clothes when I was just about to leave my house. Minus the heels, this is something I actually wear to uni a lot. Either way, I felt really good with what I was wearing, probably because the feeling we were celebrating was way more important than any clothing. I really can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this amazing man! <3
