Recently it was my boyfriend’s birthday and his parents took us to a beautiful winery in Red Hill in Victoria to celebrate. There was plenty of wine as expected, and delicious food to accompany a stunning view. There is really nothing that tickles my pickle more than good wine and fantastic food, and the colossal green vineyards made the experience just a tad more enjoyable. I kind of wish that I had taken photos of the dishes I ate, however I didn’t want to be one of those people who whips out their phone every time they are presented with a pretty meal. But I do understand why they do it, because I was lucky to enjoy some artfully displayed dishes that tasted as good as they looked.
Weather-wise it was not a typical summer’s day, so my lightweight blazer from Portmans kept me warm on top of my navy and cream dress from Dotti. Being the girly woman I am, I love the tulle underlay and I attempted to create a more classic look with my vintage porcelain brooch. I have recently discovered that I own an unprecedented number of brooches of a great variety, so I should probably challenge myself to incorporate them into outfits more often. I think it’s time to bring the brooch back.
Hope all my Aussie followers have been enjoying a beautiful summer! Spending a day outside with friends and family while enjoying good food and drink is truly great for the soul. Thanks for visiting my blog! x
