Style: 2.6.15 Maple & Bark

Vest by unknown, top by LNA, dress by Monrow, shoes by Zara.

While I proudly declare myself a city sleeker born and bred through and through, sometimes a girl just needs a little time away, time to unwind, smell the roses and get in touch with Mother Nature…

So on a chilly morning the Sunday past, Mister J. and I decided to take a last minute drive to the Dandenong ranges for some lunch. Comfy jersey maxi? Check! Fine knit jumper? Check! A super fluffy vest to brave the cold? Check! A wild scramble for a few winter essentials and we were off!

An hour out of town lay the Piggery, an old pig farm converted into a rustic cafe. I love this place on a cold day. Sipping on my chai latte, spooning rich, gooey mouthfuls of dark chocolate tart and other treats in the warmth whilst peering out onto sprawling lawn, the dewy grass sparkling as it catches the sunlight.

An attempt to alleviate the guilt of a gluttonous lunch calls for a light stroll in the gardens, despite the bitter cold. It was at this point that I regretted throwing on this cut-out knit, I was literally spotting cold shoulders! But hey, all in the name of fashion am I right?
