roses, coffees, parks, trees and golden winter sunlight

city roses a Last Saturday I grabbed a takeaway coffee and then headed into the city. Yes, this is what early winter in Melbourne is like. Rude, I know. city roses b city roses c So sunny I couldn't open my eyes without sunglasses! city roses d I wore my rose print vintage dress again – that's twice in, what, one week? That's one of the many things to love about vintage cotton dresses: they're so easy to wash! I wore it with my vintage sparkly cardigan and my new closed toe shoes – and these shoes allow the wearing of seamed stockings. Nice!

John and I took drank our coffees on the drive in, and then walked through one of the lovely city parks in the golden sunshine. I, like we humans have been doing for thousands of years, tried to capture the beauty of the sunlight in the trees. I don't think I'll ever be able to actually do it but I can get close – and I'll keep trying because it is so beautiful! city roses f

So splendidly pretty! Love the gentle light - it's not terribly far off from the light we've been having here lately, too, though we're marching into summer, not winter. Soon though the kind of sunshine that goes perfectly hand-in-hand with the desert landscape of this corner of B.C. will be upon us again, and many of my outfit photos will take on that special summertime midas touch once more. :)

Lovely pictures, the lighting is really perfect. Seems funny all Southern Hemisphere bloggers talking about Winter, we've had a week or so of Summer sunshine here in the UK but it's now back to the usual rainy days.

Oh I love everything about those photos, especially your coral shadows! I bought quite similar a few weeks ago and can't stop wearing them. I would say that they are so perfect for summer but it's winter in Australia... so this color is universal, I think :)

Retro Chick said...

I hate to be another UK resident whinging about a lack of sunshine. But boo! I am jealous of your winter blue skies and tired of rain!

You look beautiful, I do love that dress, and it goes so well with the closed toe shoes!

Maria Verymuchalive :definitely -- so much about our light here now reminds me of spring in the UK, too :) I think the eyeshadow looks pinker here too than in real life – my camera makes the colours super strong! :D

Retro Chick : haha no I totally understand! We have cold and non stop rain now, so hopefully that sun is well on its way to you guys! :)

Vickie : it was a gorgeous scene!

Zoe Gruss : thanks! Melbourne definitely has its moments :)


Purple Ivy : hehe it is very wearable and tempting!

Aimée / The Lost Girl : welcome back! And thank you <3

i love autumn and i like the atmosphere in the last picture
i like it, that you see the beauty of the seasons and the things that are around you and take your coffee for a walk in the park. so many people just pass by and dont see what is around them.
