Floral Weekend at The Grounds Alexandria

Oh how can you not love this place! One could spend hours here and still be thoroughly entertained. Of course there is the cafe which serves healthy fresh produce, but when the queue easily becomes a 30 minutes and even up to an hour late, you can feast your eyes on the mini food and drinks stalls just outside the cafe. Doesn’t hurt to have a little nibble :). A lot of kids love to come here too as there is a little area where Kevin Bacon the pig resides (yes, there is a pig).

 

 

One of the most delightful stores to visit is the flower shop. The collection of fresh flowers that they have here is absolutely amazing! Always tempted to buy a little bunch home to place it on my kitchen counter top.

 

 

 

Dress

It was a beautiful sunny winter day so I decided to wear my favourite piece from La Maison Talulah. I love the flow and ruffles on the dress, which gives such a feminine feel. I could easily layer this dress with a thick winter coat as it is so comfortable. The material is super soft and I feel the peachy tone of the dress will complement any skin tone. It also comes in a soft black colour, which I will link here. as many sizes for the peach colour are currently sold out. The original retail price was pretty steep but I manage to snatch it up for more than 50 % off during the brand’s mid season sale. Yes, I love a good bargain!

Shoes 

I love  a sturdy , comfy pair of OTK leather boots that will stand the test of time.  I own 2 pairs of Stuart Weitzman Boots which are the Tielands and the 5050 in Napa leather.  I love them both for different reasons. I have spoken about the Tielands in my previous blogpost which I will link here if you are interested. The 5050s are so versatile, so comfy and elevates any look; both dressy and casual. I even wear them to work on a regular basis because the comfort level is beyond amazing. The sole on the 5050s are definitely thicker than the Tielands, hence providing a better support and less damage to my bunions.

 

 

These Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots are made for walking 🙂

 

 

How pretty are these floral arrangements?
