... even that the clouds were low and grey, and the wind blew a gale, the ocean was warm and welcoming for our brief visit to our home beach of Byron Bay. My twin sister has fallen in love with a local label there called Arnhem, and I can see the attraction. I'm wearing one of their kimonos, a simple and very beautiful versatile piece, light enough to protect my fair skin from those deceiving UV rays. ASOS is having a pretty amazing sale at the moment, and this bikini arrived just in time for the trip - and worn everyday since (beaches, pool, creek, canal, and even in the bathtub with my niece!)
This outfit is the closet to an 'evening look' as part of my Spring/Summer collection - I, myself have gotten alot of wear out of this particular look, especially in cooler evenings, the black velvet skirt is warm, high waist and covers the knee. The silk shell in this pattern has been so versatile, and pure silk has ergonomic qualities for all seasons

I cannot begin to explain how lovely it is to arrive back into the thick of an Australian summer. Melbourne is showing off, but the Mornington Peninsula is where all the action is... still we were able to find an uncrowded beach by the McCrae Pavilion for a dip in the bay and a long lunch
I have decided to relocate down here, business and all. So after my Byron Bay trip next week, this will be my new residence, and I couldnt be happier to be back near the beach
Happy Summer everyone!

Waking to a cold, grey 2013 in Florence, I couldn't quite grasp the year that was, until I reminisced through my Instagram and Pinterest accounts. Both accounts were opened in 2012, and so they are included in the TOO MANY things I am grateful for in 2012
Do the thing that make you sing with Joy - every year!
Thank you so much for reading my little blog
