ESCAPE

(Glassons top,  One Teaspoon shorts, Forever New shirt, Adidas sneakers, Glassons sunglasses.)

When the sun is setting at 5pm and temperatures are almost sub-zero, you know it's time for a little mid-year holiday to evade the approaching winter blues. Lucky for me, I got to do just that a few weekends ago when I hopped over the ditch to visit one of my best friends who had recently moved to Sydney. It was a great girls weekend away in a beautiful sunny city that has me seriously considering a change of scenery.. But even luckier for me, I get to do it all again on a much grander scale, as I soon depart for a cheeky little getaway to experience the dream that is a European summer.

I'm not sure it's quite sunk in yet that this trip is coming up so soon - 15 days and counting! There have just been so many other things happening in and around my life that my schedule has been jam-packed and my brain has been rather preoccupied. But that's all the more reason for me to be very excited to soon be able to press pause on all that and enjoy a little escape from reality. Here's hoping that it will result in me feeling refreshed and ready for life when I get back (or maybe I'll just feel terribly depressed that I'm no longer on holiday, it's about a 50/50 chance for either scenario). 

I wore the above outfit while in Sydney and plan on wearing it plenty while in Europe as well. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of high rise denim shorts and One Teaspoon delivered the goods with these High Waisted Bandits. While the current weather situation in this part of the world is unfortunately not very conducive with bare legs and crop tops, I'm sure these shorts will earn a solid place in my wardrobe and carry me through many summers and vacations to come.

FALL

(Liam Helix dress, Sempre Di Elly boots.)

There's nothing like a good trans-seasonal backdrop to welcome in the approaching colder months. This beautiful ivy wall it the absolute epitome of Autumn and I'm so lucky that it's literally about 10m away from my front door. Apologies in advance if I get lazy and end up taking all my photos here for the rest of the season..

This dress is one of my favourite go-to pieces for the working week (or any day of the week for that matter). It's an old silk number from Liam that has really stood the test of time; a classic silhouette with cute twist sleeves adding a point of difference. I would definitely now also add a coat on over top though as the weather has turned to absolute custard and the daily high in the capital was down to a single digit. Not quite sure how I'm going to make it through another freezing winter but I guess I've somehow survived the last 23 so fingers crossed for this one too.

WEDNESDAY

(COS stripe top, pants from South Korea, Lulus.com heels, Glassons sunglasses.)

What better way to celebrate hump day than with an ode to one of the most well-known fashion one-liners in movie history (and if you have no idea what I'm talking about, please go educate yourself). I bought both these pieces while in South Korea earlier this year and have been wearing this top to death. It's made from a cool and comfy cotton that is just so easy to throw on for a lazy day (of which I have many). The pants are also surprisingly comfortable as well as being totally office appropriate, which is always a bonus for my wardrobe these days. And while I had no intention of wearing these colour coordinated purchases all at once, it turns out they make quite a great ensemble that would definitely get Regina's approval. 

After traveling so much for work over the last six months, I am SO HAPPY to finally be living in Wellington for two whole weeks! It may sound like a bit of dream to travel all the time but trust me, the novelty wears off pretty fast when you end up by yourself for most of the week in very uninspiring small New Zealand towns. Needless to say, it's great to be back in this beautiful city (if only for a little while). Priority activities while here include multiple coffee and scone runs to Lamason, mastering new songs on my newly acquired electric piano and hanging out with all the awesome people here who I always miss when I'm away.
