I remember now...

I remember now why I love (parts) of the Sunshine Coast just as much as the Gold Coast.
We went up to Noosa/Sunshine Beach today for lunch and a trek around.

Noosa River

Markets by the River

The weather fined up and we had lunch at this hip little place at Sunshine Beach. We have been on a few holidays there over the years. I love the small beach town vibe, the natural beauty and how it has quietly become trendy, minus the Hastings St crowds ;-) It's only 5mins from Hastings St but you wouldn't know it. I could have eaten basically everything on their menu - yum.

The view from Dukes

The Sunshine Beach preferred method of transport.. motorised (yes it had a motor) skateboard

Beach piccies

My outfit:
Dress: made by me. The top half is a cut-up vintage dress - the lower half had stains and I thought I could still make the most of the pretty green top half. The fabric for the bottom half & waist tie is from Spotlight. This was my first DIY dress so I'm miles form being an expert but I thought it turned out alright! I kept the tie's edges raw (mainly because I hadn't got around to hemming it yet) but I think I actually like it this way.
Handbag: vintage
Bracelet: lavish homewares @ Gabba
Ring: two finger ring from
Sunglasses: ray ban
Silver Flats: witchery (yep, Witchery flats are pretty much my summer staple)

Wow... feet!
