November has been an extremely busy month and I have enjoyed taking some time away from the online world in favor of getting to meet some of my favorite bloggers in person and spending time together offline. Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting bloggers who I have been following for as long as five years, thanks to a fantastic meet up organised by Bonita and Ellen which you can read all about on Lavender & Twill and A Wild Tea Party. On top of that, a few nights ago I caught up for drinks and Mexican food with Brisbane vintage ladies; Kim from Say Cheesecake Photography and published pinup model Honey Holloway. In Sydney I met the fabulous Missi, the creator of Daisy Jean Floral Designs who made the stunning flower hair clip I am wearing in these photos.That’s right – these are actually artificial flowers, hard is it may be to believe considering they appear as if they were only moments before picked off a hibiscus plant and tucked into my hair! This is the first time I have ever worn hair flowers before on the blog as I am extremely picky when it comes to hair flowers and find many styles to be too over the top for my taste. I am a huge fan of Daisy Jean Floral Designs because not only is the quality of the blooms the most superior in fabric and feel, but they have a natural, understated appearance that adds instant elegance due to the balanced way in which each piece is designed. The flowers are attached to the hair with a metal clip that does not have any teeth so there is no risk of hair being tangled and is extremely sturdy and remains in place all day.

Australia is cookin’ at the moment, seriously, the country is one big oven and you may have heard that all of the Australians are trying to come to terms with the heat – even though this is something that happens every summer. I turned to my most reliable summer favorite, the playsuit, to get me through the last few days. Growing up my all time favorite past time was climbing trees. My childhood home had huge camphor trees in the back yard and I spent every day of the school holidays working on building a tree house and seeing how high I could climb without killing myself. Our new back yard is full of trees and I got distracted while we were taking blog photos and started climbing this luscious fig tree which was all too tempting because it was so easy to climb!

Oh I read in news paper how is hot in Australia. When I was on Thailand there were many people form Australia.
This Playsuit is so cute. I bought similar one but it is to small for me 🙁

Ooh I love this play-suit on you, I love anything to do with hibiscus/tropical/tiki feel to an outfit! I'm actually getting a play-suit and matching skirt currently made for me, I can't wait to get it in the mail! 🙂 Daisy Jean Hair Flowers are so pretty!

Gorgeous photos and such a cute playsuit! I love the print on it and it looks so great on you! That's so fun that you've been able to meet so many people in person lately! 😀
Bonita Vear says
This is perfect playsuit to go with your DJF! You are right, it does look like you just plucked a hibiscus and tucked it behind your ear! So beautiful, and I love these photos with you in the tree ~ it really just looks like your little ol' glam self climbed a tree, picked your flowers, hopped down and went off to a farmer's market or something… 😀 ❤

If Australia is cookin', Britain, on the flip side, is freezin'! All the lows with none of the highs over here… Anyway, you look like you were made for hot weather in this cute outfit 🙂 x

Play suits are my absolute favourite and this looks so adorable on you. The print is lovely. I know exactly what you mean about hair flowers, that's is precisely why I have never worn any, I will have to check out this brand.
Jessica Cangiano says
Absolutely beautiful outfit – pink is glorious on you, sweet dear.
Honey Holloway says
I seriously need to get some Daisy Jean hair flowers ASAP.
I can never find ones I like! They always stick too far out of my head, like far away from the clip..
I'll have to test out DJF. It's on my list of things I want when I have money lol.
Btw can't wait for our next
Honey Holloway says
Girls night! Lol (wouldn't let me finish the comment)
Honey Holloway says
Also, I wish play suits looked good on me!! This is soooo cute. YOU are so cute.
Hayley Ann says
These photos are perfect, as always! It's crazy to think of Australia boiling whilst we're all freezing to death here in the UK!

It was so lovely to finally meet you in person that day – thanks again for inviting me, I had the best time! I've been really absent from blogging world since a few weeks before then but I'm finally back, haha. That playsuit looks like it was made for you, by the way! I used to own a few a few years ago but just stopped wearing them for some reason, they're super cute though.
