Hope everyone’s Easter weekend is off to an egg-citing start! Melbourne tends to boast itself to be the most liveable city in the world, however, if you ever were to visit, one of the first things you will find is that the weather is hardly accommodating. While we have officially entered Autumn a good month past, the weather has been a yoyo, varying from sweltering hot days to bone chilling winds that rip through the finest knits.
Last Sunday however, the odds were in our favour. Perfect sunny skies that made for ideal t-shirt weather and a weekend picnic, with good food to supplement great company. Adding a little more flair to the humble tee, I picked out an old favourite, this printed silk skirt from the Australian label, Kookai. To top it all off, I settled on a pair of ballet flats featuring neon pink and orange accents that compliment the sunset tones of this skirt nicely.
Of course, there would have been no picnic without some fancy nimbles! Being tasked with bringing sandwiches, I made two delectable combinations: roast chicken with a generous spread of chilli jam between two slices of an olive pana di casa loaf (any crusty olive loaf would do fine) and a baguette stuffed with honey leg ham and Swiss cheese. Both of which went down a treat!
