Getting out in Geelong.

The Geelong botanic gardens are small, but lovingly cared for and make for an interesting visit. We made the trip out to see them last week, as well as spending some time checking out the local opshops, much to The Boyfriends horror! As it was a pretty warm day I wore a thrifted floral dress and my much loved vintage cowboy boots. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect pair of flats...but i'm not having much luck.


These amazingly detailed sculptered bollards are scattered throughout the city, showing characters from Geelongs past and present. They really are fascinating!



Is it weird that The Boyfriend is almost dressed in camouflage gear?





After exploring the gardens I dragged The Boyfriend to an area that Google told me would have alot of opshops. And Google was right! I spent about an hour going through four different shops ( I am the queen of power shopping, otherwise The Boyfriend gets crabby) and only came away with one item. But what an item it is, a sweet soft cream wool jumper with a huge bow at the collar...i'm sure it will make frequent appearances as the weather gets cooler! By then we were baking in the heat ,so a wonderful, cooling dip in the ocean was called for before the drive home. I love day trips!


  1. lol my bf gets crabby when I shop too! Unless its for him of course.
