NZFW15 // DAY 1

(Playsuit, Finders Keepers. Coat, Lola vs Harper. Shoes, Kobe Husk. Bag, My Deer Fox.)

Starting my first ever Fashion Week with a bright pop of colour to match the walls down at the Viaduct (unintentional, but made for some fun photos). Wearing this playsuit from the lovely people of Flo & Frankie, and shoes that were a super bargain from Hunters & Collectors in Welly.

Day One crazy crazy busy, starting and ending with two of the very best - Twenty Seven Names and Kate Sylvester. Other faves of the day include sleek newcomers Third Form, and Andrea Moore's gorgeous colourful showcase (more on those later, stay tuned!)

JUXTAPOSE

(Jumper, Portmans. Playsuit, Popcherry. Shoes, Number One Shoes. Scarf, Ruby.)

In my attempt to add some colour into these dreary winter months, it seems that I evidently own an abundance of pieces in varying shades of blue. Coats/jackets seem to be the main culprit, with three navy blue numbers hanging in my wardrobe on high rotation. This particularly sunny day didn’t call for a coat, and my knit & scarf combo did a fantastic job of keeping out the cold while my legs got to see the light of day for the first time in too long. The contrast between the cozy top half of the outfit and the breezy summery bottoms is almost poetic, and very fitting for the current trans-seasonal weather (think blaring sunshine with freezing wind). My only issue with this outfit is that I have to literally take everything off to use the bathroom.. someone please fix this problem with playsuits ASAP, I will be forever grateful.

WANDERLUST

(Jumper, Emporium Vintage Boutique. Skirt, Huffer. Sneakers, Puma. Sunglasses, Cotton On.)

Now that I'm on the home stretch of formal education, my last proper summer ever couldn't come any faster. Plans thus far include enjoying the NZ sun for a solid two months thanks to no exams this semester, before jetsetting off to the Northern Hemisphere for as long as possible (i.e. before I have to come back and start my real adult job.) Desires to escape are further fueled by gloomy days (see above) and the old routine of student life (which isn't actually all that bad currently, considering I almost get five day weekends..!) In the meantime though, scrolling through travel blogs and Pinterest boards will have to suffice, along with pretty much living in the travel-inspired jumper. A vintage piece from Emporium Boutique in Wellington, it's comfy, cozy and a little rugged around the edges, as one should be after some exciting adventures. Paired with my new gold mini and trusty Puma's; I'm ready to board the plane now.
