Weekend Away: Canberra (Part 1)


I’m in Canberra at the moment enjoying a long weekend. This weekend I swam at the Masters NSW Short Course State Championships at the Australian Institute of Sport. I thought I’d use the opportunity to make a trip of it and do some sight seeing while in Canberra. It’s such a relief to now have the swimming meet out of the way and be able to relax on a mini break. I’ll get back into my training routine when we return to Sydney late Tuesday. This afternoon we visited the Canberra Botanic Gardens and went for a walk around Lake Burley Griffin. The Botanic Gardens were underwhelming. I was expecting a pretty set of gardens but instead it was rustic, Australian flora. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it just wasn’t my style. The lake, however, was very pretty and worth the visit. 

This trip has been the perfect opportunity to wear my new Hummingbird dress from Kitten D’Amour. This collection was released last week and it’s my favourite from Kitten D’Amour all year. I haven’t liked as much there in recent times but this dress is one of my favourite pieces I’ve ever owned. I love the print but it is completely the collar which makes the dress for me. I’ve heard a lot of people don’t like the collar but I absolutely adore it. I hope Kitten D’Amour does more collars like this in the future.

Looking forward to more Canberra adventures tomorrow.

  1. Loved this dress, it’s so romantic and sweet! You really look beautiful, as usual – you have sooo beautiful dresses! Such a lovely and sunny trip, I always wanted to go to Canberra, hopefully one day I go! Enjoy you trip! Hope you have a nice day!


  2. What a cute dress. It was hard getting to your blog since it’s set up differently now, but here I am. I love the floral look of the dress. I noticed you called it your hummingbird dress, but I don’t see hummingbirds anywhere. I really like the collar and everything about it. And I love the swan purse too. You look lovely.

    Wishing you sweet November days, dear Imogen.

    love, ~Sheri


  3. Looking utterly stunning in your dreamy dress gorgeous babe! I adore the print, it looks like total magic on you 😍 Your swan bag is so so so dreamy too, have never seen such a beautiful bag. Canberra looks and sounds so blissful, hope you had the happiest time there and massive congrats on swimming at the Championships, that’s incredible! So glad you enjoyed the lake, so perfect ❤
