Amusing wet weather...

"You live but once: you might as well be amusing"
- Coco Chanel

It's quite a challenge keeping up with the weather in Auckland. I woke up the other day planning to wear a skirt and my new jellies, and the next thing you know it was pouring down with rain. An outfit change was needed stat! With the bus only 15 minutes away I quickly threw on boots and jeans with a sigh of disappointment. Throughout my day however my attitude changed and I started to really love my outfit. The colours seemed to work together perfectly, and I loved the subtle exciting details of the backwards cardigan, braided belt and lace up boots. So there I was, strutting through town feeling quite proud of my little 5 minute outfit, them bam! I fell over on my butt #facepalm I'm not the most coordinated person in the world, hence when I see rain I go for sturdy boots with good grip that guarantee my butt staying off the ground. My favourite Novo boots failed me this time, giving way under me. Funny thing, I slipped on those little raised yellow dots at some traffic lights (meaning maximum exposure to general public), but aren't those things meant to stop you from slipping in wet weather??

Cardigan : Something Else
Crop Top : Glassons
Boots : Novo
Jeans : Ashley Fogel
Belt + Necklace : Vintage

I get some funny looks whenever I wear this cardigan but it only makes me love it more. When I wore it to work one 
Sunday some of the other girls thought it was the most hilarious thing ever and proudly wore their cardigans
 backwards for the afternoon too. 



  1. how fun is this! so, both front and back have buttons? (or did you turn it around in the pics?) hope you're ok from the fall!

  2. Haha, way to start a trend! I love the backward cardigan and your boots :)
    I know, the weather is so fickle here too, so I'm always having to change my planned outfits

  5. I laughed at the part where you slipped and fell on your butt! That must've been truly painful! The outfit looks really great and casual!:D
    I especially love how unique your cardigan is!:D

  6. This is such a cute look, even if by accident. BTW I've done that many a times, slipping in my boots when wet. I always find things that are meant to keep you in place have to opposite effect!
