ready to go on a trip to the bellarine peninsula
Last Saturday morning I met up with Iolanthe and Leeyong bright and early for a coffee and something to eat and a weekend away! We piled into Iolanthe's car and drove down to the Bellarine peninsula, about 1.5 hours away on Victoria's coast. Don't you love the name Bellarine? I wore my new vintage 1950's quilted skirt. I just love the copper colour, and had been looking for one like it for ages – isn't it the best thing when you finally find something you've been searching for! I added my vintage cream cardigan with the pearls and sparkly beading, and my Marni shoes. Oh, I love them so, so much. I also had my vintage faux fur hat and my 1940's princess coat, but it was a really mild Autumn morning, so I didn't need them. And, of course, I had my trusty red vintage hat box! It's amazing how much I can fit in there. We drove along the left side of the horse's head (look at the map and you'll see what I mean!) and stopped off at a cute cafe for chai lattes. But we didn't have long; we had a lunch date at a winery so we had to get back on the road! Leeyong and Iolanthe looking beautiful at our beautiful destination... the view there was incredible! But more on that another time. Right now I am resting up after catching a cold (which is possibly why I felt so warm all weekend?!) and drinking hot water with lemon and honey. So it's extra nice to look back at a good weekend away. Especially as I have another busy weekend coming up, which I'll share soon! Hope you are having a great week!
