Location LOCATION: Tasmania

Dress: from thailand, Jacket: vintage, Shoes: from tokyo, Rings: gift & samantha wills, Crochet neck piece: DIY

So here are a few photos from the other day when  was busy celebrating with my coloured confetti. The day was just perfect and everything had a beautiful whimsical feel to it so I wore some easy neutrals and my new favourite necklace i made. It came about when i felt like my outfit was still missing something so i grabbed a crochet doily, cut it, added some ribbon and wore it as as a neck piece. It’s actually one of the DIY projects i am going to show you all how to make but i literally made this as i was running out the door so it’s not completely finished yet. I plan on adding some cream ribbon around the neckline where you can easily tie it into a bow on the back, or front, whichever, and wear it with pretty much anything. I also tried to photograph my ring which has engraved “It’s never too late to be what you might have been” – a quote by George Elliot and a gift form Alex and Eleanor. I feel like it has a whole new meaning since starting gary pepper so i decided to wear it to add a little personal touch to the celebrations.

I think this is really one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever been. I’ve always adored large open meadows and am constantly talking about how i’m still looking for the perfect one so when luke found this place he immediately took me there, and i still can’t believe how perfect it is. I’m not even kidding when i tell you there are butterflies chasing each other around and tiny little yellow ladybirds scattered throughout the pastel pink grass. It was just insane. I loved it so much that i took Alex and Laura back there that very afternoon where we enjoyed one of the funniest afternoons i’ve had in ages. We got a little carried away picking wands and somehow ended up having a contest with who knew more spells from harry potter. Apparently, with the help of wikipedia, i didn’t know as many as i thought!
