My husband and I flew over to Sydney for a quick, weekend trip to attend a wedding.
We were only there for 2.5 days. But we flew without kids and oh boy, it was soooo relaxing and fun!
This is me wearing my Self Portrait 3D Azaelea Dress. I love that I can fold it up, shove it into my suitcase… and then throw it on and go! No ironing required!
Also wearing Schutz Cadey Lee Heels. And gold tassel earrings by Mezi.
(I swear I’ve worn this ‘heels and earrings’ combination for the last 3 years, with every dress I’ve owned haha!)
The first morning, my husband and I woke up early at 6am to go for a walk, in search for a coffee by the river.
We stayed in the Kirribilli area (a very old and posh suburb, where the Prime Minister lives) and the houses and gardens were just beautiful, amazing and full of character.
I guess, if you’re rich, you can afford a gardener and you can water your garden to perfection haha.
We found a cafe by the river called, The Flying Bear.
The view was stunning. The coffee was just ok.
We walked down a street and I noticed that it was really pretty – lined either side with blooming jacaranda trees.
I took a few quick snaps… then I noticed lots and lots of other people taking photos.
Girls in ball gowns. Asian tourists. Photographers with very big cameras. Matching couples. Backpackers. Families. It was like a street festival.
Later on, I found out that we had stumbled across one of those “Instagrammable Hotspots” and the street was a bit famous.
Search up “McDougall St, NSW” or “Kirribilli, NSW” to find it.
The next day, after the wedding, we woke up at 9:30am (yes, 9:30am).
It was the best sleep-in ever. I felt rested, fresh and like a completely new human being haha. I don’t think I’ve felt like that in 15 years!
We stumbled over to join the rest of the family and wedding party (who were staying at an AirBnb, which belonged to celebrity chef, Rick Stein!) for a long, relaxing, chatty, 6-hour brunch.
In the late afternoon, my husband and I spontaneously decided to head out into the city – because you know, we were travelling without kids and we could do whatever the heck we wanted haha!
So we caught the ferry into Circular Key, caught a glimpse of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, and walked around for a few hours.
We went back to the Airbnb for dinner with the family again, left early for an early night, and caught a cab to the airport at 6am.
It was a quick and simple trip, but yep, I didn’t have to do any cooking or anything important, so it was my idea of a relaxing holiday!
