tropics

(Top, Valley Girl. Skirt, Bardot. Heels, Lulus (similar here & here). Sunglasses, Cotton On. Clutch, Saben. Bracelets, Lovisa.)

Channelling my favourite climate on a not-so-tropical Friday off work - yay for long weekends! The pictures make it look deceptively sunny, but most of the day actually felt like it was on the verge of rain. Luckily, the temperatures were still warm enough for this cute crop & pleated skirt combo that looks right at home in front of a flurry of purple flowers. I'm also absolutely loving my new aviator style sunglasses; I never thought I'd be wearing circle sunnies but these ones have stolen my heart.

puppy love // Saben x SPCA

(MAC T-shirt, Saben. Shorts, Glassons (similar here). Shoes (Jeffrey Campbell dupes), Charlotte Russe. Sunglasses, Cotton On. Bracelet, Pandora.)

Nothing says happy like a cute little puppy on your top, especially when its supporting the SPCA as well as looking adorable! The lovely ladies at Saben teamed up with Knucklebones designer, Kimberley Thomas, to create this exclusive printed t-shirt featuring Mac, the french bulldog. This t-shirt is super comfy, and has that perfect slouch that every white t-shirt should aspire to. I paired it with a pair of equally comfy spotted shorts, and added some metallic glam with my sunnies & shoes. Perfect for a lazy Saturday of doing nothing much in particular because it's too damn hot to function.

You can still buy these T-shirts here, with all proceeds going towards the SPCA. So support this awesome cause and nab an awesome tee while you're at it!

disconnect

(Up Til Dawn Cami & Of The Night Shorts, The Fifth Label. Shoes, Verali. Bralet, Farmers. Hat, Cotton On. Necklaces, eQuip.)

It's officially one week into 2015, and I'm slowly getting to grips with returning to real life after an amazing summer break. The festive season was spent at home with family, before I headed off into the sunshine in Gisborne, Waihi & Whangamata to bring in the New Year. During this time, I didn't touch my laptop for over a week; and although it doesn't seem like much, that's kind of a big deal in today's day and age! It actually felt so amazing to disconnect (bar the occasional sneaky instagram post) and just enjoy my favourite time of year. The weather was so kind to us as well, and my bikini tan lines are very grateful.

The above outfit consists of a few of my current faves that I've worn multiple times recently, starring this easy breezy matching set from The Fifth Label. I wore it to a 21st late last year, and have also worn both pieces separately. Bralets are a saving grace during hot & humid days, and this one peeks out perfectly under the strappy top. I have also discovered the power of a subtle red lip to instantly look more put together without being too over done. (Side note: if you're wondering what I'm holding in my hand in that second picture, it's actually a wireless remote for my camera. So yup, I took these pictures myself, and looked a bit strange to passerbyers, but I think they turned out ok!)

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year! Here's to an amazing 2015 ♥
