 A little delayed (2 months, give or take) on this final Melbourne post, but I’m still excited about it! We had heard great things about the Royal Botanical Gardens and really wanted to check them out before we had to part ways for another 6 months </3… we started with brunch at The Kettle Black (SO good… the coconut chia seed pudding is to die for) and then made our way to the botanical gardens & Shrine of Remembrance. We were completely captivated by them! The gardens are so serene and full of lush greenery and flowers. We strolled for a couple of hours admiring the palms, exotic gardens, and the little cottages tucked away behind wrought iron gates and trees. Like a storybook, let me tell you! Dayle wore a simple striped tee with denim shorts and Vans… quite a bit more appropriate for nature than my getup, but I was itching to wear this double-breasted duster vest! I love that I could throw it on over a black tank and suede shorts and suddenly the entire look was enhanced. Add a floppy hat and my foolproof Topshop block heels and I was good as gold (naturally). This became one of my favourite outfits that I wore all year!
