Laura May Gibbs and Renee Bargh enjoyed a typical Byron Bay outing over the weekend.
On Saturday, the girlfriend of actor Simon Baker, 36, and the former host of The Voice, 34, were pictured enjoying brunch before grabbing gardening equipment as they lapped up the sunshine in the hip coastal town.
Fashion designer Laura oozed hippy chic in a navy beanie hat, brown sweater and dark denim jeans.

She teamed her look with an over-the-shoulder bag and some white trainers.
Renee opted for a white baseball cap, matching jumper and khaki leggings.
Both ladies appeared to go make-up free for the casual outing, and wore their hair in a gentle beach-wave.
The pair appeared deep in conversation as they sat outdoors in a local eatery, before heading over to a gardening shop where Renee carried a beautiful array of indoor plants to take home.

Unlike Sydney – which is currently in the middle of a strict lockdown – Byron Bay is classed as regional NSW, so is subject to less strict restrictions amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
While Sydneysiders are being told to stay at home, residents in regional areas are still able to have up to five visitors allowed in property at one time, yet still must wear facemasks in indoor settings.
Meanwhile, The Daily Telegraph recently reported that LA Confidential star Simon Baker met his new love Laura in Byron Bay, where her fashion design studio is based near his farm in Nashua.
The couple are believed to have first begun dating around March this year.

News of Simon’s relationship came weeks after he announced his split from wife Rebecca on January 29.
The pair told People in a joint statement: ‘We remain close friends and our three children will always be the most important focus of our lives.’
Once rumours began circulating, the pair were pictured ramping up the PDA as they hit the beach in Byron Bay – with Simon cheekily grabbing his bikini-clad lover’s derrière while playfully attempting to pull her under a wave.
Meanwhile, Renee made her permanent back home to hometown Byron last year, after living in Los Angeles for over 10 years.
Sharing a beachside photo of her enjoying the sun in New South Wales’ coastal town, Renee began: ‘I live here now! No, really I do. After ten years living in America, I’m officially home.’
