outfit

grampians


Wearing: My boyfriend’s beanie, vintage triple collar blouse, vintage koala jumper, vintage red shorts, Voodoo opaque tights and vintage brown boots {photos by Tom}

So I spent the last two days at the Grampians, a sandstone mountain range and national park approximately four hours north west of Melbourne. We checked out McKenzie Falls, one of the biggest waterfalls in Victoria, went to Boroka Lookout to watch the sun set and did all sorts of other things in between. With lots of walking around ahead of me, I decided to put together a couple of very comfortable outfits. I’ve had these vintage leather boots for almost three years now and still can’t believe how well they have held up. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’d know that I love brown boots! They’re so easy to match with and seem to complement so many of my outfits and are definitely one of those pieces that should be in every wardrobe. The koala jumper was also totally appropriate for visiting the Halls Gap Zoo. I really love the countryside for its beautiful landscape, fresh air, dirt roads, forests and open space. Nature is really quite spectacular and to think that you could be surrounded by all of this in your backyard is just wonderful :)

    This outfit fits so wonderfully into the beautiful backdrop, I have to say the second photo is actually breathtakingly ethereal. And I love how you can look so cute and comfortable at the same time! Have you fully recovered from your wisdom teeth surgery?

    Now that’s a fun looking hat– kind of cool how it emulates the koala print in your jumper too! Sounds like you’ve had a great bit of fun (Melbourne really has some lovely parks and such) and I hope you have just as good of a weekend! xx

    Aww trust you to have cute as outfits!! This – is – adorable – Connie!
    Hope you had a fantastic camp in the Grampians. I’ve been there for a camp and yep, four hours in the bus (sort of..) gave me bus sickness. Dont usually get sick but that time I did! Oh well but the scenery was so beautiful so guess thay rewarded the unpleasant bus experience :0
