PRETTY IN PLAID

(Dress, Glassons. Blazer, Jayjays. Shoes, Hannahs. Necklace, Meadowlark.)

Well hello there! Sooo it's been a while since my last post on here.. 3 weeks in fact. Oops. Here's a recap of what I've been up to: Lots of driving between Hamilton & Auckland, catching up with friends, being miserable during that terrible week of zero sunshine, snowboarding (or trying to), going skydiving (!!!), and attending an abundance of birthday parties. 

The outfit above was one that I wore to the latter of those activities. I decided I had nothing to wear on the day of the party (typical), so I popped into Glasson's on the way home from Uni and picked up this little number. I love dresses with this silhouette; they're so flattering and feminine, plus I can eat a bunch without worrying about potential food babies. The plaid pattern adds the perfect touch of edginess to this otherwise girly outfit (see: pink, chiffon, bows, loose curls). I've been seriously lusting after a good plaid piece for a while, and this seems to fit the bill nicely.
