seasonal

As a result of plummeting temperatures and a few too many late nights, under the covers is fast becoming one my favourite places to be these days. Thanks to FCUK though, I now have a socially acceptable way of essentially wearing a blanket outside! Comfy fashion doesn't really get better than that. Because who wouldn't drag a fluffy blanket around with them for midday naps if they could. I wore this on the plane down to Wellington a few weeks ago as well, and it's the perfect travel companion to snuggle up with.

Side note: could we all please take a moment to appreciate how pretty this fence line is? The epitome of autumn plastered onto a little brown fence; I thought it would make an appropriate backdrop for this in-between seasons kinda outfit.

debut

(Top, Bardot. Pants, Portmans. Shoes, Dotti. Mr. Siamese bag, Deadly Ponies. Rings, Karen Walker. Sunglasses, Glassons.)

SAY HELLO to Mr. Siamese! The new favourite child of my wardrobe family. I've had my eye on this baby for a few months now, and when they were finally restocked at Superette, I took the plunge and made my most expensive purchase to date. Needless to say, there have been no regrets! The perfect size for everyday in classic black and gold; this buttery soft bag will be used to death because it literally goes with everything.

Case in point: the above outfit that is almost-but-not-quite business appropriate, featuring my new favourite pants that were a super bargain find because there was a massive hole in the crotch.. nothing Mum can't fix though! (Thanks Mum). Cuffed and paired with some pointed pumps, along with this in-your-face-pink top that I borrowed/stole from Apoorva's wardrobe (again).

Currently, I'm enjoying my mid-semester break with a trip to Wellington, with the main purposes of eating food and buying stuff. I did also bring all my uni notes in the hopes of accomplishing some study, but the certainty of that is about on par with the weather here.. As long as I get my hands on a jar of Fix and Fogg peanut butter before I leave though, the trip shall be deemed a success.

crisis averted

(Top, Blak The Label. Skirt, Glassons. Boots, Mi Piaci. Sunglasses, Cotton On. Necklace, Recycle Boutique.)

More often than not, the process of getting dressed in the morning is a rather stressful one.. I'm sure everyone reading this will know the feeling of looking into your wardrobe and having absolutely nothing to wear. Lucky for me, I have access to an amazing second wardrobe when a moment like this strikes, because one of my wonderful flatmates is the same size as me in both shoes & dresses. This top and these killer boots both belong to said flatmate, who is kind enough to let me borrow pieces and trusts me enough not to spill chocolate/wine all over them.  Seriously guys, living with someone who you can share clothes with is such a life safer; I highly recommend it to all. (Thanks Apoorva ♥)
