pale pink, mustard and deep green ivy
On Friday I was up before the sparrows and had been down to the mountains (the Dandenong Ranegs) – or at least very near them – and was back in the city by 9am. John and I enjoyed a short walk through the Treasury Gardens (or was it the Fitzroy Gardens? They're so close) as it was on his way to work. We lapped up the cool air but it is still pretty mild here in Melbourne. It often is at the beginning of winter, so I'm making the most of it before it gets properly cold! Because we'd had some sunshine I had summery-ness in mind and wore a pale pink and mustard combo, part two – this time with a vintage pale pink dress and mustard tights. And, finally, closed toe shoes! Great timing, really, as it started to rain – so much for our summery winter! Not that I am complaining. It's the best like this! I will never get tired of seeing the golden brown leaves amongst all the green. Autumn in Melbourne is so different from its London counterpart, and while I'll always miss England's seasons, seeing Melbourne's ones makes me happy, too. And Melbourne can definitely do pretty. I love the glossy, high contrast look of things in the rain. And the city parks are beautiful! I love the plush Christmas tree convention happening here... .. and the ivy clambering along the paths to have a look. The walk was the best interruption to a looooong drive. And now I want to go to the mountains for longer!
