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.

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).

Local fashion will always hold a special place in my heart and today's post features a few pieces 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 stunning tops below. Her graduating collection at the annual Rookie show featured relaxed yet intricate silk linen pieces in an array of bright block colours.

This first top is a pretty peach crop that's 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!

I kid you not, it took me about 20 minutes to figure out how to put this top on, even with instructions! Proof of some amazing design work (or maybe just my own incompetence on how to dress myself) and it makes for such a unique silhouette. I love this seafoam blue colour and the contrasting darker lining really makes it all pop. And because two tones of blue somehow weren't enough, I decided to add a third with these Amber Whitecliffe shorts that have become a staple in my wardrobe.
