mork-inside - 3One thing that I really loved about Melbourne, aside from family and street art, was that almost all the cute little shops and restaurants were hidden. You really have to know the area or have somebody tell you what the facade of the place looks like. I actually ate and drank my way through discovering Melbourne and Mörk helped me. This was the cutest hot chocolate shop and it hit the spot for a chilly day.

P.S. Notice the cars parked on the different side of the road.mork - 1mork - 2mork - 4mork - 5mork - 3mork-inside - 4mork-inside - 1Old Navy: Dress (option) & Shoes // Gap: Vest // Hue: Tights // Kelsi Dagger: Backpack (option) // Catbird: Ring

Mentone Beach

mentone - 1This evening stroll along Mentone Beach was one of my favorite nights. It was just about sunset and the air was just starting to get crisp. The ocean and the colors of the sky were so calming. It felt great breathing in the fresh air and just taking in the scenery. I can only imagine what it’s like to take a dip in the summer.

1,000 Steps @ Dandenong National Park

1000-steps - 1I’m back in Chicago, but my mind and heart are still in Melbourne… It was so hard coming back and leaving my sister and my niece. I’m not sure when I’ll see them again, but I hope it’s sooner than later and not a year and a half like this time. I’ll always treasure the memories we made forever.

These photos are from our trip to the Dandenong National Park 1,000 steps. We had no clue what we were in for, but my mom, Fay and I made it to the top and we felt a sense of accomplishment. We challenged ourselves both mind and body and what a view from the top. We definitely felt the hike for several days, but it was all worth it. More Melbourne posts coming this week.
