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 ♥)

tropics

(Top, Valley Girl. Skirt, Bardot. Heels, Lulus (similar here & here). Sunglasses, Cotton On. Clutch, Saben. Bracelets, Lovisa.)

Channelling my favourite climate on a not-so-tropical Friday off work - yay for long weekends! The pictures make it look deceptively sunny, but most of the day actually felt like it was on the verge of rain. Luckily, the temperatures were still warm enough for this cute crop & pleated skirt combo that looks right at home in front of a flurry of purple flowers. I'm also absolutely loving my new aviator style sunglasses; I never thought I'd be wearing circle sunnies but these ones have stolen my heart.
