Four little words sum up my weekend: Melbourne, I adore you. I still can’t believe how long it took me to finally make my way down there but after seeing how beautiful Melbourne is, I’m sure I’ll be down there again very, very soon. The days unfortunately flew by all too quickly and I hardly got a chance to take any photos of our stay. Thank you to everyone who made a lovely suggestion, I think we covered alot of ground for just two days! We had an amazing breakfast & coffee date on Degraves Street, wandered down Flinders Lane and had a look at Retro Star (which provided alot of inspiration for my future en devours, it’s bursting with amazing vintage!), made our way over to Camberwell Markets where I found some amazing pieces including a gold Escada jacket for the store, had japanese and gelato on Brunswick Street, Italian for dinner on Lygon Street, and watched the sun set from St Kilda wharf late Sunday afternoon. By Monday we were so exhausted that I think I used up all my remaining energy just running to the newsstand to buy FAMOUS so for the rest of the morning Laura and I just laid underneath a tree on the riverbank waiting for our flight out which was wonderful. Nothing like being in a new town with one of your oldest friend

Even though Melbourne is renowned for it’s shopping, I didn’t really buy a lot. I think I came home with just a few bits and pieces including a Woodford & Co tee and a pair of white oxford flats that I’ve been trying to find for nearly a year, as well as some cute vintage pieces for the store- how could I not? The highlight of my trip was defiantly St Kilda wharf on sunset. Even though I live over the road from the beach we really don’t have anything like that around here. The feeling of being so far out to sea, the view, the atmosphere, the sun! It was absolutely amazing and extremely peaceful, I could have sat there for hours and hours as everything looked so magical in that light, even the fisherman! I will now feel a huge pang of jealousy every time I post something to St Kilda and wouldn’t be surprised if I try to fit myself into their express post bag.

I stand by what I said before, Melbourne, I adore you.
