The sun is starting to come out across Australia as we get closer and closer to Spring, and I think across the country we’ve taken a collective deep breath, ready for the season of cold to leave us in favour of the season of blossoming fun. We can picture it now, sunnies and sandals, brunch with the girls, sweaters and felt hats, markets and coffee dates. Ahhhh, I can’t wait. But the thing I’m most excited for is the little weekend getaway with my partner that I’ve been dreaming up during the coldest and rainiest of days.
In the Whitsundays, this looks like taking a trip up to Townsville or down to Rocky, renting a cute little AirBnB somewhere private and plush, and just taking a weekend to, well, chill. Soak in the sun, sure, but beyond that our agendas will be suspiciously empty, instead preferring to just take the days as they come and simply enjoy each others company, sleep in until 10, and perhaps even let loose a bit.
If you’re one of our friends down south, maybe you’ll opt to head toward the Hunter or Yarra for a weekend getaway fueled by the best wine our country has to offer. Wherever you’re going, the task is clear: drop the kids off with your parents, hop in the car and escape your day-to-day in favour of some Springtime loving.
I think what truly inspired this little getaway dreaming was when I saw our latest collection by Haven, which screams “Spring” and “Holiday” - a dangerous combination in my book. The flowing fabrics, bright colours and fun frills and flares made me squeal with delight when I first held the pieces in my hand and felt their quality. I think we often say that things feel “luxurious,” but the problem is there just isn’t a better word to describe how most of our items truly feel. It’s something you’d honestly have to feel for yourself to fully believe.
Anyway, I went ahead and put together some of my favourite outfit combinations for you to inspire your Getaway Dreaming as well. I can’t wait to see all the places you’ll go.
