Champagne under the Sun...

Sunday afternoon was beautiful...

To celebrate a dreaded exam being finally over, we started with a bottle of Bollinger sitting on the grass in the sun...

Followed by some delicious tapas...

Harvey Bay scallop, polenta, guanciale & lemon butter sauce

Tuna crudo, ginger emulsion & avocado

Fried globe artichokes & aioli

Mini-Wagyu burger with pancetta & crisp beetroot

Then went for a stroll in the Botanic Garden...

SABA merino wool turtleneck
3.1 Phillip Lim (& Koi Suwannagate) strapless linen rosette dress
Chloe leather & wood wedges
Chloe Silverado bag
Swarovski Nirvana Ring


How was your weekend?

I will be answering your (few) questions soon...If you haven't already, please feel free to add yours (answers/questions) HERE

  4. Beautiful post. I loved everything here: the gorgeous outfit (killer shoes!), the nature shots (your camera is incredible!), the food shots (who MADE those tapas?!). Looks like it's already fall where you are.

  8. What an enchanting post, Brigadeiro.
    There are so many things I like I have no idea where to start ;)

    Your look: adorable!!
    (such a great idea to wear your tube dress with a turtleneck body/sweater!!! Love the feminin look of the dress and your Chloe wedges are a perfect addition!)

    Talking about the YUUUUUUMMMMYYYY Tapas in your post: mmmmmh... lecker... I´m hungry, they look
    so "couture" to me... these are not "pret-a-porter" Tapas ;))

    Guess what arrived today?
    My very first complex geometrix order.
    HOLY MOLY.. it drove me crazy ;) .. was not easy
    but once I understand how to slip in I loved them!!!
    Thanks for doing a post about it as I did not know the brand before!!!

    Have a beautiful day!

  14. Thank you everyone for your lovely comments! And thanks to those who 'congratulated' me on my exam, although it was not me who sat it, it was my hubby, who after years of putting it off, finally bit the bullet to sit his specialization exam this year :)

    Anonymous & Thumbelina Fashionista - the tapas was from Sparrow's restaurant (one of my faves - love their food!)

    the little fashion treasury - *lol* 'couture tapas', haha, true, these were not quite the traditional tapas, so yummy! Yay! For your Complex Geometries purchase! So glad you liked it! I was like that too, haha, took me a while to figure out how to wear it first, but then...ah! Love it! :)

    Thanks everyone!
