Key to my Heart

On the weekend I went to Lady Petrova's School of Fabulousness Create a Flower Crown class, where as the name of the class suggests we learnt how to make a flower crown! Now I've made my own flower crowns in the past but Lady Petrova's flower crowns are known for their fullness and amazing flower combinations so I was eager to learn from the best.

I set to work making my crown - going with my trademark pink with a blue headband to match my outfit.

Looking in the mirror to see if my flower crown needed any adjustments.

Very happy with the final results.

Delicious tea and mini cupcakes were served after the class.

Everyone in their stunning floral creations. The class is held in this amazing rooftop venue with full city view. It was such a beautiful sunny autumn day, although the sun was a little too bright for our eyes for this photo.

With the queen of all things flower crown - Lady Petrova.

I wore what has fast become one of my favourite outfits. I bought the fabulous dress the night of the Miranda Skoczek collaboration with Gorman launch, which was a really fun event made even more fun by the amazing collection which I just love. Every piece is adorable and I now own another dress from the collab so be sure to check back in for my blog post featuring that.

My finished flower crown in all it's glory - so happy with how it turned out.

I wore my new favourite necklace from Michael Hill jewellery, which means a lot to me. If you've been following my blog and social media over these last few months you would know that my husband and I had a little rough patch where we had a break for a few months (which after eight years of marriage is kind of understandable). Anyway I'm happy to say we have consciously recoupled and are more in love than ever. Last week we celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary and for my gift Henry gave me this beautiful key necklace as I'll always have the key to his heart, which was just so lovely and romantic. Oh and notice my name tag there, Lady Petrova somehow made mine to perfectly match what I wore, how lucky!

Whilst it was rather sunny it was still really cold in Melbourne so I had to wear tights or freeze to death. I found these old We Love Colors tights bundled up in a drawer, unopened and never worn, and immediately knew they would perfectly match this new dress with my cute pastel pink jelly heels, and I'm all about the matchy matchy as you know.

  1. I saw you in the School of fabulousness photo on instagram the other day! Looks like you guys had a ton of fun (I wish I could attend one of those classes. I live in NSW and they always clash with uni/ gigs) Your crown turned out beautifully (I love how it matches your outfit too!)


  2. wish I could have made it along! such a colourful bunch of ladies- and the weather was perfect too!


  3. Hi Hayley,
    I love your blog, and just wanted to say I'm happy for you and Henry!


  4. Fabulous crown you got there that really matches your outfit! It really stand out from other crowns made by your friends. Keep posting and congrats Hayley!

  5. I love flower crowns! I have a few of my own. One I made myself but I have to say its almost cheaper buying one then making one but then again youll have an individual one ;)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
