THE WEATHER CHALLANGE


"We live not according to reason, but according to fashion"
- Seneca

The cold weather here in New Zealand has finally kicked up a notch, causing us to hall out the winter gear 
and get bundled up and warm. Roaring fires, soup and travel mugs containing hot drinks have become necessary 
to survive the sudden change in temperature. Tara took these photos of me yesterday, a cold chill was in 
the air as the sun was beginning to fall below the horizon. I really wanted to wear my favourite pleated dress 
with my new bag from Jolly Chic, so the cold weather brought about a challenge for me. Keeping with the colour
 tones of the bag and dress, I layered up the look with a knit and vintage coat. I actually really love how the 
look turned out! One of my favourite parts of winter is how it always forces me to be creative with layered outfits 
(well that and skiing woop woop!).


Jacket : Thrifted
Jumper : Forever New
Dress : Atrium on Elliot
Map backpack : Jolly Chic (and I actually found NZ on the map - the excitement #dontforgetthelittleones)

  10. I wish I could switch places with you! I totally prefer cooler temps over warm. I love, love, love that plaid blazer. Nothing is more chic then a menswear cut piece on a woman.

  11. Ah, your outfits are always so unique and pretty! I love the contrast between the vintage grunge of the blazer and the soft pink of the dress underneath :)
    And, thank you so much for the comment on my post! I don't actually study photography at school (we don't have it as a subject). I wish we did! I mostly do photography at home as a hobby. I love it <3

  20. Such a nice pleated dress! I like how you've layered it for the cooler weather!

    Every time the temperatures drop I'm reminded how bad I am at layering, haha!
