Good news ladies and gents, this weekend in Gympie, the sun came out and morning’s were crisp. Chilly even! It’s a sign of the glorious weather we have ahead. My Dad, the old farmer that he is, always says that after a wet Autumn you expect a sunny, dry Winter. A bit like the pink night sky predictions a farmer and his weather aren’t to be messed with.

I’m a wee bit excited. Maybe a little too excited. Even though the mornings were 5 and 6 degrees, the days have been heating up to 30+. That saw me ditching the cardie and stripping off the leggings and boots mid way through the day for something a little less cosy. This dress {because even on me it’s long enough to be called that} was a gift from the ladies at Virtu from their new catalogue. The purple is SO very autumn/winter, don’t you think?

So in the shade of a giant tree, in the yard of a school I probably shouldn’t have been on the ground of, Hubby and I grabbed these photos. There’s just something magical about the afternoon light at the moment. Photographers go on and on about it. I can see why. Golden light is flattering and warm and all kinds of perfect.

Anyone want to follow me around and light me with golden light? Anybody?
