Under the Boardwalk

Balmy afternoon strolls on St Kilda Beach have been essential this week. I love going down there on sunny days when theres hundreds of people swimming and drinking, it has a whole Venice Beach vibe going on. Also this time of year is prime time for puppy spotting, one of my very favourite activities. Some of the pups are so small its hard to believe they can walk.

The evening these pictures were taken I met this lovely lady in the city for beers at the Carlton, I had never been there before and was amazed by all of the incredible taxidermy. The night progressed into boozing at Shanghai Dumpling House (possibly charming the waiter so much we were rewarded with free dumplings) and ended up at rooftop bar which on a still night is one of my very favourite places to be, despite the killer walk up about 10 flights of stairs. I also discovered that maraschino cherries and pear cider were meant to be together, so delicious!

I hope everyone has been having a lovely week!


  1. Beautiful photos! Although I got so sit by the beach for a bit, I didn't get to walk along the pier at St Kilda when I was in Melbourne! So much that I regret not doing!

    P.S. your dress is wonderful! The fabric is gorgeous

  2. Oohhh... your shoes look like tap shoes - so cute.

  3. Miss Tallulah - They are tap shoes! I have an awful habit of buying taps off ebay with the intention of taking classes but always end up pulling the taps off and wearing them as street shoes!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I just love hearing from you x
