I've been in love with Gorman this season, I think I've said it before on here and I know I've expressed it on my twitter and instagram accounts numerous times, but seriously, they're doing something right this spring/summer. FYI this is in no way, shape or form a sponsored post - I do just really love the label, and have since their inception. This dress is a recent-ish buy from their Boxing Day sale and it gets me so many complements. The contrasting side panels help to define my waist - it's like a magic trick, honestly! I also am in love with the zig zag patten on the bottom and the sleeves. Essentially I just love this dress!

I wore it to check out artist Ben Morrison's field of Sunflowers in industrial North Melbourne. The artist saw that this industrial block next to the train line wasn't being used and was just accumulating weeds and rubbish so got permission from the owners to beautify it. And it really is beautiful, especially during 'golden hour' (just before sunset) which just so happened to be when we visited. The sunflower field can be accessed from Macaulay Station on the Upfield Line, just walk beside the train tracks under the freeway overpass to the location on this map. The flowers should be in bloom for another two weeks or so. Just watch out for the bees!

My friend Laurie and I look a little stressed out here because there were many many bees, but we had to get the perfect shot y'all!

My bright yellow shellac manicure matched the sunflowers perfectly.

Hot tip! Don't wear heels or platform shoes if you go to check it out. The path leading to the field is treacherous and rocky, just like in this photo, and I almost fell on my ass numerous times. But my shoes are so pretty guys!

This necklace was a Christmas present from my sister, I do love me some fruit accessories.

This bag was a gift from Brandon of Lactose Intoler-Art whilst I was over in Tokyo. I love it as it reminds me of him when I wear it, missing you Brandon xoxo

A rare smile from me in front of the camera. I just have 'in front of camera bitch face' no matter what I do.
