Then in the evening I got changed for DH's work Christmas party. It was really nice! Smart casual dress code again, just like last year. And again, I went with a maxi dress as a simple option :) We took photos beforehand which I was grateful for as I only had my phone at the venue and the lighting was bad for pics.

Spent some time at Wellington point with the family today. We had a delicious BBQ lunch and then went for a walk over to King Island. By the time we were walking back to shore it was already pretty windy and we could see lightning in the storm clouds in the distance, so it was time to call it a day and take shelter. The wind might have been a bit much for Cooper in the end too, haha!


Last worn: yellow sunglasses, Aztec print dress, pale yellow belt, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton neverfull.

  16. I hopped over from the very sweet Kim's blog. I love your blog description and read your About Me page too. I agree with you that bags and accessories are ok to splurge on since they are more timeless. I hope your knee is ok in this autumn cold. But then again, I think it's summer in Queensland now so I should take back my words.

  34. Hello! It's always exciting to stumble across an Aussie blogger. Just thought I'd let you know that I really like your fuschia Balenciaga bag. My mum recently purchased a purple one of the same style. I love how casual yet funky it is. Have a nice day!
