Down on the patio we sit, and the humidty we breathe......

We took these pics down by a local creek. Somehow it doesn't quite compare to the running streams of New Zealand. But this is Australia! I bought this vintage dress from a vintage store on K-Road in Auckland in 2012. It's not one I've worn a lot, but it's cool & comfy so maybe I should put it on higher rotation this summer.

  6. Well, your creek looks pretty lovely to me! I love the dress - isn't it funny how we rediscover things and wonder why we haven't worn them much? The bag is a beauty too!
    Have a great weekend, Leisa. xxxx

  12. Love that outfit esp. the crocheted bolero, looks lovely and cool. Noticed your retro deer in the background, I had them when I was little, mine had gold chains from the neck of mum to the babes. Only have one babe left now. Sounds of Then is one of my all time fav songs.

  13. It looks lovely down by the creek. Your jewellery is great. I especially love the carved bangles and the brooch. The print on the dress is very pretty.

  14. Your floral frock is lovely and your blog post title made me smile. "Sounds of Then" (We are Australia) by Gang Gajang - iconic 80s pop song.
