I know it’s not summer down under but Australians have summer down to a tee. The weather is warmer, the beach is a staple and things are just generally a little more laid back. How do I know? I traveled to Sydney, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley in 2011. There I fell in love with the beaches, wine, weather and the Bogey Hole. (WTF is a Bogey Hole, right?!)
Summer brings me back to that place. I find myself lusting over eccentric MINKPINK summer dresses or One Teaspoon swimmers. Since my visit, I’ve found a few other down under favorites. Here’s to a summer done right.
