Do you know what's amazing?
No trip to Australia would be complete without a blog post sharing with you - the gorgeousness that is the Ocean.
Now, while Downunder, my Mr. Darcy and I DID head into the Pacific for a dip or two, but these photos were taken on a romantic day... LITERALLY, a walk along the beach, hand holding, ice-cream eating and a gorgeous sunset. The photo on the left is my favourite photo taken of myself in a very long time. To me, it says LIFE and HAPPINESS and at the moment this picture was taken I really felt like I was experiencing and truly enjoying BOTH.
My skin and hair felt salty after so many days on the beach and much as I love the UK, I do miss sunshiney ocean days - a lot!
Now for my day on the beach, I am wearing the City Chic Floating Flower Maxi-dress, which as you can see - I have hitched up into my underwear. I actually LOVE hitching up my dresses and walking about in the sun and in Australia, I used to do it a LOT. In fact, I miss days when I used to walk to work, through a PARK - no one around, sun shining, sunscreen on and dress hitched up - letting my arms, chest, face and legs drink in a little Vitamin D.
I teamed my dress with a macrame style bolero (also City Chic), pink Havaiana Flip-Flops and Paparazzi-Huge sunglasses (bought on Santa Monica Pier in 2009). I also took a massive bag with me carrying towels, drinking water and sunscreen. I am wearing minimal make up... my time downunder was VERY MUCH about keeping things very simple! Can you see my freckles?
In any case, it was a very romantic day... and while my blog doesn't really have a place for couples shots of Darcy and I - here's a smidge of romance for you:
