BILLOW

(Sueded billow dress in French Navy, Zimmermann. Heels, Steve Madden. Sunglasses, Prada.)

Hunting for the perfect occasion dress can be a stressful experience full of indecision, self-doubt and almost-perfect-but-not-quite moments. This is made even more stressful when the dress you were supposed to rent falls through two days before said occasion. After a few hectic hours spent trawling through the interwebs for fast shipping and appropriate sizes, I ended up having a ball in this beautiful Zimmermann number. A dress straight from my dreams - 10/10 would wear again.

COTTON CANDY

(ASOS ruffle blouse with tie detailASOS pleated lace skirt, Lulus.com heels, Glassons sunglasses.)

When you've attempted to go shopping three weekends in a row, only to come out empty-handed every time; ASOS comes to the rescue! I'm definitely having a moment with pleats, and I love how these perfectly show off the different lace details on the skirt. Although this outfit does kind of remind me of that pink-blue carnival cotton candy that looks way better than it tastes.. (embracing it).

LULU

Local fashion will always hold a special place in my heart and today's post features a piece from a new addition to the NZ designer fam. Meet Lulu Liu, a recent grad from AUT with a self-titled label and the girl behind the gorgeous top below. Her graduating collection at the annual Rookie show featured relaxed yet intricate silk linen pieces in an array of bright block colours.

This pretty peach crop is super light and breezy and fun and I so want to wear it to the beach ASAP. But for now, it's pretty perfect with a bit of Lonely underneath and a flirty skirt to top it all off. I also need to point out the happy coincidence that this Lonely bra is also called Lulu!
