Picnic at the Beach

This picnic was long overdue and even if it's a month past my birthday and is already Autumn my family still went to the beach for my birthday celebration. It wasn't a sizzling day unlike the one we had last year but it was still sort of good day with a bit of drizzle. I'm actually lucky my sis and my nieces love going outdoors so my picnic accessories didn't go to waste. I was thinking of a pineapple theme but with a limited time flat laying and snapping I just have to make do of what I got. Stay and see what happened :) 
What to wear to the beach
H&M white dress

For the first time we went to Clontarf Beach which is a northern beach of Sydney. Being me where I don't really bring anything from home except my homemade chunky choc chip cookies I decided to get almost everyone a cup of coffee from this little cafe in the area. The café was all painted in white that matched really well with my off-shoulder cover up dress. And how pretty is this coloured straw bag that my cousin gave me from the Philippines?

 It probably be the last beach hangout until summer season starts again, the dress served really well against the coldish air. Unlike most Sydney beaches which are open seas and good for surfing this beach is quite secluded and is really perfect for families with children. On the other end is a marina where loads of boats were moored.  


Blue one piece swimsuit
Lace-up up swimwear
Lace-up pieces have been trending from tops to shoes and so when I saw this one-piece swimwear online I grabbed it immediately. Honestly, it has the cutest lace-up back details I've seen.

 Blue straw hat
Quay Australia sunglasses


 Of course we had savoury meat dishes and other sweets courtesy of my sister and my niece. But because everyone was hungry and there was no space to put down everything including my pineapple props I just had to snap photos with the cake and the ornaments. But it still looks good, doesn't it?

I never had the chance to light the candles because it was beginning to pour down heavily. So when I got home hubby set up a mini table for me to blow the pineapple candles. After all, it doesn't feel you had a birthday celebration 'til you made a wish :)

I wish I would've known when it was your actual birthday :( I'm glad you were able to still celebrate as you wanted on the beach and I love the pineapple theme, too cute! Now, those cookies look delish, can we expect a future post with the recipe!? I'd love that, hint hint ;) I also love that bag your cousin gifted you, so pretty and colorful!
