Forest Foraging

At this time of the year my brain is like mush.

It feels like it anyway. I want to begin by apologising by my absence. When I started this blog I intended to go into it full throttle, but things don’t always go to plan do they? Work has been busy and I have recently been recovering from a flu, so most nights when I come home all I want to do is relax.

No excuses but life just genuinely has gotten in the way so I do apologise.

I wanted to share these pictures though. Over the long weekend (June 12th) Matt and I went gin tasting with our friends in McLaren Vale at Settlers Spirits, which I highly recommend. On our way back however I asked Matt (like always), do you want to go the long way home? And of course he said yes.

We drove past Kuitpo Forest and stopped in for a little walk, and obviously I got Matt to take some outfit shots, who could resist with such an amazing backdrop?

My dress is from a Dotti outlet store in Melbourne. I love the embroidery on the bust area and along the bottom and I have been loving longer length skirts and dresses. My “leather” jacket is from the brand Lily Loves from Target and my boots are over a year old from Target also.

Anyway, again apologise for the lack of posting, I will be back in full swing next week!

Is there anything you would like to see me blog about? Also does anyone have any blogging tips or ways I could improve my blog? Let me know!

Thanks for stopping by!

    That’s such a cute dress! Really love this outfit. <3 Also, don't pressure yourself, life isn't always easy but it's not wrong to take a break. No need to apologize. 😀
    Much love,

    I don’t think I will ever get tired of feminine dresses with a biker jacket – such a great look! x

      Thank you! I love that it’s feminine but has an edge. I’m not overly girly so it’s a look that I think works for me! Thanks for stopping by!

    Such a gorgeous outfit! I’ve been loving longer length skirts and dresses this year too, they’re so easy just to throw on and I don’t have to worry if they’re too short or not!

      Yes! I’m 5’7 which isn’t overly tall but find that a lot of dresses these days are just far too short! Love that I don’t have to worry about that with midi dresses and skirts! xx

    I love your dress! It so pretty, i love the ruffle detailing as well as the white embroidery on the bottom part of the skirt. Beautiful pictures too shot in a very pretty location.
