Plum path

Apologies for the quiet on the home front. It's always the way... quit your job and think you'll have all the free time in the world, only to find you're busier than ever working at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and freelancing your little tushie off. But that's not what this post is about: it's about the fact that I don't actually wear heels in the bush.

I know, that's insane.

I ended up shooting this outfit on the first few metres of a bush trail though because it was windy and cold and threatening to rain so I wanted to grab the pictures before the weather got even worse, and it was on my way home, so, please don't be fooled into thinking I'm either a heel wearing superwoman bush walker or completely impractical. While I am proficient in my heels, I'm not into broken ankles. Nor suede and dirt as a general rule.

Still, for all the cold and the eventual brief shower just as I got in the door, I was glad to be back in my cool weather wardrobe again. This dress has been on the blog before but it's been a great purchase, doing regular rotations during the cooler months. Having seamed stockings back in my wardrobe again also makes me rather happy. But I couldn't resist a touch of tiki with my orchid hair clip.

Sometimes you've just got to keep a little summer all year round.

Such a gorgeous dress and it looks lovely on you. And it's perfect with those shoes, as well as your stockings and headpiece! Karen x

This plum ensemble is so pretty and striking! I love the rich tones, and it's a perfect wintery colour palette. I think the orchids add a lovely, fresh touch to lighten the outfit up. ❤
