BACK FROM PORT STEPHENS

If you're following @theloveassembly on Instagram you would've already figured out the destination for our winter escape last weekend which I was so excited about! We headed just 2 1/2 hours north of Sydney on Friday afternoon and stayed as guests at the luxurious Anchorage Port Stephens. Now that we're back I keep thinking of how those two and a half days flew by so quickly and how every weekend would be bliss waking up to a view like this by the water. I have plenty of photos to go through to add to our Travel Diary but before I get started, here's an outfit to get you in the mood - sunny days, bikinis, bare legs, big smiles and alot of running and jumping. Oh happy days!What I'm wearing: 3.1 Philip Lim bandeau (similar here), Asos shorts, old espadrilles & J Crew panama hat.Espadrilles are the epitome of summer shoes for me - they make me feel like I'm on a European summer holiday even though I've never experienced a European summer! This pair was pretty much the only footwear that I wore throughout our entire weekend adventures but I also love them striped, or in a leopard print. After a short while at the beach I threw these striped shorts on top and we took these photos just outside of our loft suite; in between the big blue sea and the marina. At first we did some filming, then a little bit of rock hopping and then contemplated whether to throw in a line to go fishing. We were pretty worn out by the end of that so instead of fishing we took the alternative and went out for some delicious seafood followed by an afternoon siesta.More photos, updates and a little something extra coming soon!Shop these items for a similar look:
