As i mentioned yesterday i managed to get a little time to go for a drive over the weekend and visit one of my favourite spots its hidden in the back of kalamunda in the hills and is about a half hour drive from my house now..i used to live two seconds away but living closer to the city has its advantages even though i miss the hills sometimes..I used to drive up there alot whenever i was having a down day or whenever i was in photoshoot mode..the view is so amazing!!

Its funny growing up i was always in the hills (bush) living on a huge farm with lots of animals and id have to say i had the best childhood we were never stuck in front of a tv in fact my mum let us watch the news thats it..and me and my sister would just hang out in the fig trees or down by the creek bed, i was honestly really lucky i had the chance to be a real kid and use my imagination for fun instead of technology and when i have kids i hope i can do the same for them..





I think because i have always been surrounded by it as soon as i smell the dewy air and the cars start to dwindle on the roads and everything starts to turn into red dust i feel instantly at home...i could sit on a big rock in the middle of nowhere and feel right where im supposed to be!!!



Anyway thats enough about that... i actually hadn't thought too much about this outfit and it wasnt until i was uploading them onto my laptop i noticed im actually almost in camouflage (except for the bright red shoes) haha.. i pretty much blend right in!!! The wool skirt was a cute find i love it when vintage skirts fit perfectly and hug the curves in your body it was so hot but overcast as you can tell so i had the best of both worlds wool skirt, lace top!! and your probably thinking what a dill she is wearing heels in the bush haha, truth is they are so comfy it feels like im wearing flats!! and plus i was venturing out for cupcakes and coffee later that day so heels it was...

Im hanging out for the weekend already (its only Tuesday)
XX P.S - ive just finished reading The Catcher in the Rye (loved it) have u guys read anything lately i simply must read??????

(Wearing: Vintage wool skirt, belt & lace Top with Gifted patent cherry red heels, Vintage Watch & Kailis Pearl Bracelet)

I love that you blend slightly into your surroundings in these photos... Makes you look like you're in harmony with nature :) The detail in your top is just lovely.

If you're looking for a great read, I can highly recommend anything by John Steinbeck, but particularly East of Eden, or Louis de Bernieres' Birds Without Wings.

I think you'd like a book called; The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. It's a novel and it's quite simple but beautiful and had me yearning for everything nostalgic. Much like a beautiful vintage dress.
I can't believe it's only Tuesday, I think the warmer weather draws out that home loving, summer day ache for the school holidays of years past for any one who was lucky enough to grow up in WA

I love these pictures and the little story about what it was like for you growing up. :)

I also love that you said "dill", that might be my new favorite word haha.

Love the outfit, such a beautiful spot you're at as well :) Dewy air indeed :)

Hmm.. not lately but if you like the Catcher in the Rye you might enjoy The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides - I always felt it had a similar feel to it. Maybe that 's just me :D

Once again such a beautiful outfit. The vintage look really suites you! I grew up in the country as well and have secret spots too. :)

I really love this outfit so much. Have you been told ever that you look a little bit like Heather Graham the actress? You do.
