Reading the title of this post now, I realise its unintentional duality in addressing not only the obvious theme of these images but also the fact that we are soon departing autumn with the incipient Australian winter. Indeed, the morning air is chillier and my bed is noticeably more difficult to crawl out of in the bleary hours of dawn, but it is in these types of moments where we're chasing the auburn sun amidst a backdrop of russet and burnt orange hued maple leaves that I truly feel like I live in the most beautiful place in the world ...
And how pretty is this sequin hem dress? I'm not one to shy away from sequins for a day-time look and layered with the appropriate knits, it makes the transitional weather all the more resplendent!
Much love, Mandy. xx
