High tea time.. mmh Versace - love

I'm sending you love and tea,

To warm your winter's day.

Think of me as you pour your cup

And all the good things we would say.

If we could be together now

Instead of miles apart,

We'd sip our teas and memories,

The sweet warmth fills the heart.

Im missing my first Australian Summer and seeing clothing like this reminds me of the simplicity of long days at the beach with the girls and our boards, walking around barefoot, getting up early and eating mangos for breakfast and road trips down the great ocean road!
