The blazer: been wearing this Balmain-inspired number constantly over the past year- it's so sharp, smart, and figure-flattering. I got it for ~$75AUD (I've heard from friends it's a littler dearer now), including shipping, from Queen's Wardrobe (South Korea) and it arrived in 3 days!
The hat: purchased from one of the most beautiful places in Victoria- Lavendula, a Swiss-Italian farm about a 7-minutes-drive north of Daylesford. The rustic food from La Trattoria, Lavendula's cafe, is amazing and uses a lot of fresh, local produce. The tables and seats are set higgledy-piggledy amongst lots of closely planted, tall, skinny ash trees overlooking gentle grassy slopes and lavender gardens. You can enjoy your food and wine under dappled shade while little sparrows and finches twitter above and flit about at your feet. Hopelessly romantic. I was somewhat miffed that I had forgotten my camera at the hotel, but reassured myself that I'd return soon!
Wearing Queen's Wardrobe blazer, Country Road shirt, American Apparel tricot nylon leggings, Wittner heels, Napoleon Aphrodite Divine Goddess lipstick (so moisturising, vibrant and lasting!).
My definition of a perfect Friday night:
- Finishing work on time.
- Coming home for a quick nap.
- Dinner at a not-too-crowded Grossi Florentino Cellar Bar, getting a window seat, ordering the Bucatini all'Amatriciana with a side of patatine.
- Dessert: Cellar Bar's Raspberry cheesecake.
It was a perfect Friday night last night (except I was too full for dessert...but fell asleep in PDiddy's arms so that made up for it). This blog was supposed to be a food one- but I'm not very good at it. I'm always close to finishing my meal when I realise there's no photo of the food when it was on the plate. Oops.
So here is a photo of the romantic facade.
Hope y'all having a terrific weekend!
