Sunday was fantastically relaxing! We were staying in the NSW hinterland for the long weekend.

Another maxi dress! Below is what I packed for the trip: bikinis, dresses and a clutch and sandals for evenings out. It seemed like the most hassle free way to pack for the weekend. We had a lovely last day and an interesting trip home. All three of us (DH, Cooper and I) had a blast at the Tropical Coast Retreat. I uploaded a few photos on facebook if you want to see some of what we got up to. :)
