Up in the mountains

Last weekend, we took a drive up to the Dandenong ranges. It's less than an hours drive from the city, but could not be further away in appearance. The moment you turn off the highway, the scenery changes from drab suburbia into breathtaking, winding mountain roads. Driving amongst the trees, amongst the dappled sunlight, it's such a magical place.

The mountains are always a few degrees cooler than Melbourne city, so I dressed up warm, even though the sun was shining above the canopy.

Strikematch: patterned tights are great, I always feel a bit silly wearing them so I'm glad that some people actually do like them!

Skye: thank you Skye, I think you're clearely the champion op shopper, what with your 50c finds

Heartofpearl: it was really hard to begin with but it's getting easier as the year goes by. I couldn't have started writing this blog in the 1st 1/2 of this yr - I was far too distracted by not giving into temptation, and wouldn't even dare to look at fashion blogs, haha :)

Acatofimpossiblecolour: I would be honoured to exchange links with such a stylish person such as you! xo
