Werribee Mansion

Monday, April 20, 2015

Salam,
I thought I would break up the monotonous features with a HR adventure post/mini featurette (not really adventure rather a 'day out' sort of thing. Though adventure sounds so much better)

Recently my family and I head out to Werribee mansion, a gorgeous historic home that also includes an adjoining zoo. It truly is a spectacular place with each room set up and styled in the era it was built. 
The day was predicted to be beautiful and sunny so I thought I would test drive a new hijab that was sent to me from Neva Style Australia (click to go straight to their Instagram page)
The neutral toned hijab is made of thin fabric that is perfect for spring/summer but can definitely be worn in winter too. 

Paired here with my absolute FAVE floral pencil skirt and a thin merino wool cape I think the hijab really pulled the whole look together. 

So let's take a look at some of the pictures I snapped that day and I hope you enjoy! 















One from the top of the Neva Style hijab.


Here is the overall look I described above. I styled my hijab in the simplest of styles by pinning under my chin and then wrapping the long end around my head and letting it dangle at my back. 


Close up of the hijab and my orange fingers. Haha please excuse my flamin fingers. They were freshly henna dyed so the colour hadn't developed and deepened yet. 


How cool is the cafe built under the mansion library?

  5. This is such a lovely post HR! THough in Melbourne, it has such a British feel to it. Do they have a setting for Afternoon Tea? Not quite sure if it is a tradition over there. By the way the Grounds look amazing x
