Wearing my suitably bohemian Zara, flare-sleeved dress and my wine-hued floppy hat, I soon felt myself melting into the luscious surroundings and become my good ol’ nature hippy self…
TLC once famously said ‘don’t go chasing waterfalls’, I disagree, although their songs are rather catchy!
Literally speaking, finding beautiful natural places brings about a rewarding sense of adventure. It opens our senses to all the world has to offer and makes everyday worries seem to drift away down the stream.
Metaphorically speaking (warning: some deep shiz is about to follow), what is life without taking risks and exploring our options? Chase for that dream and, if you fail, at least you will fall among the stars. And more importantly, you will feel that sense of achievement within yourself.
Jake and I found this beauty on the Atherton Tablelands whilst we tried to decipher an old, barely legible map. So I guess you could say we are pirates? But instead of hunting diamonds and rubies, we are after nature’s idyllic treasures.
I echoed the lush, tropical surroundings in my outfit too. This Zara dress features a lush, keyhole neckline that I am just a tad obsessed with. The retro, floral print makes it a sure fire fit for the rainforest. But my favorite part? These luscious, cascading bell sleeves!
I brought out the burgundy floral accents with this floppy hat. Style tip: if you’re looking to accessorize a printed dress, look for one of the lesser appearing colours in the print and highlight it!
Due to the rapids of these stunning cascades, I resisted my mermaid urges to just jump right in! Luckily, we found a second falls that was literally a natural lagoon! Stay tuned, as I will be posting a photo of that wonder to my Instagram very soon!
