Skirts + Lipstick + Windy Weather = ...


"If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"
- John Wooden

Ellen and I found this carousel in Aotea Square and thought  it would be such a fun place for outfit photos. Auckland has had a bout of windy weather recently which has made wearing skirts (see below) quite perilous. This bad planning combined with red lipstick and my hair out made it difficult to keep my outfit under control (probably much to the amusement of the many onlookers). 


roll neck top, coat - made by me
skirt - glassons
belt - portmans
boots, beanie - The warehouse
lips - Rimmel Kate Moss in '111'
watch - May28th

  5. Love the red lips- and I hate it when the silly wind gets in the way! I've had it ruin several REALLY GOOD outfit photos. "If only the wind hadn't blown my hair across my face."

  6. This printed turtleneck shirt! The pop of lip color really ties this outfit together as well.
