Daylesford Birthday

I had the most incredible weekend away for my birthday this year. Henry and I took the v-line train to Daylesford, a stunning country town about two hours from the city of Melbourne known as the spa capital of Australia. As we don't drive we didn't get to visit the nearby Hepburn Springs as well, but in our short two day visit we sure packed a lot in. Walking around the town is pretty easy, although all the tourism does seem to be set up for those that drive as we were often advised something was just a quick 5 minute drive away and then when walking there were no footpaths, or footpaths that suddenly take you up people's driveways and to their house. We did eventually make it to all our destinations though, the beautiful Lake Daylesford, the old Convent Gallery and tea house and the epic vintage store that is the Mills Markets as well as taking advantage of the previously mentioned Spa's with a relaxing massage and facial for me, a wonderful birthday treat. All of our adventures were documented over on my instagram. On day one we walked up to the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens, to take in the scenery and snap these outfit photos. My dress is a bit wrinkled from spending over two hours sitting on the train, but oh well I still looked cute!

It was absolutely freezing cold! Luckily I was prepared for this and had brought with my my cute pink ear muffs, beanie and gloves all from Daiso!

I just love my super cute Daiso gloves, you can't beat them for $2.80!

The Miranda Skoczek x Gorman collaboration is so amazing. This dress is the Team Miranda dress, I love everything about it from the name to the cute applique motifs to the cut. The perfect winter dress for me, I am living for jumper dresses these days.

The last time I went to Daylesford was on a school trip many many years ago. All I remember from that trip of our shot stop in the town was there was a lolly shop that sold giant chocolate freckles and I knew I wanted to see if they still did. So we found the shop, on the main street of the town and found what I thought were the giant freckles but were in fact just medium sized ones as right up the back was this giant thing. Of course we had to buy it even though Henry grumbled over the $20 price tag, but hey it was my birthday! It was actually pretty delicious, and a lot of fun too!

Super cute cut out brogues with copper detailing. I love that with the cut out detail when wearing bright tights you can see them poke through. For some reason that makes me very very happy haha!
