Our weekend in Sydney

Morning Everyone! Tim & I have just had a fabulous weekend in Sydney without the children!
You might remember this post about our last trip to Sydney.

Things were ALOT more relaxed this time around!
It was a double celebration weekend, my friends baby is due in a month & she had a 'Bambino Celebrazione' and it was our wedding anniversary. I love parties with old friends . . .they are simply the best.

Double Bay is my favourite spot in Sydney. I love the streetscape with it's topiary trees and striped awnings. I love seeing gentlemen wearing ferragamos and drinking morning espressos. It's safe, it's pretty & it's old school.  A highlight for me was the Double Bay festival on Sunday. It took us completely by surprise! Here are some snaps of my weekend & few little purchases.

New favourite shops include: Olivades, Mandalay Flowers and Maison Et Jardin. And of course Sydney Antique Centre.

And the markets were great! I ummed & ahhed about these vintage glasses. Do you ever try something on and think . . . .'Am I cool enough to pull these off!?' . . . .as a 31yr old Mother of two I find I am constantly asking myself this. Hemlines too short, earrings too dangly, fluro too bright . . . but I love these glasses and they fit nicely so they came home with us.

Henry & Alice had a weekend escape to Noosa . . . I do miss them this morning but it's hard to beat a sleep in until 7.30am.

I hope you guys had a fun weekend!
