I have always been deeply attracted to nature, in particular forestry. I love the way the mountains smell and the way the colour green instantly leeches out all my anger and frustration. There is something so romantic and lovely about the woods, especially in the cooler months. As I look at the trees and smell the fresh crisp air I can't help marvel at Allah s.w.t's creations.
I recently went on a trip to one of my favourite places in Melbourne's Dandenong ranges. It is a teeny tiny town called Olinda which is nestled next to Sassafras with a population of around 1600 (according to the 2006 census). Olinda is rich with history being around since the 1800's. I love heading there for some excellent coffee and food as well as perusing its antique stores.
Here are some pictures of my day spent in the beautiful suburb of Olinda, if you are a Melbournian like myself you must go visit, even if it is just to drive through.
XxI will start with what I wore that day as I know that is probably what interests most people. I wore a new Asos dress which I LOVE. It has dolman sleeves and is cut in the shift dress style. I paired it with my Zara jeans, boohoo shoes, and Seduce long wool coat.
Drinking tea at the park. And yes that is a jar. And no I do not consider myself a hipster I just forgot to bring mugs so the spare jar came in handy.
