Strange feeling when you discover that a couple pieces of clothing you’ve owned for six months go together seamlessly. Makes you feel exactly as stupid as you do smart. This dress is one of my favorite pieces in my closet for it’s loose cut and ability to work in any situation given a few accessory changes..but the effect the bustier has on cinching it in just kind of..completes it. So much love for NZ and Australian designers right now. And blindingly bright overhead motion sensor lights.

Hopping around a field and high on nature, baring shoulders at 46 degrees, watching the crows fly ahead more slowly and quietly than in a dream, letting the wind feed me my hair, running and talking faster and faster to keep warm, falling and not caring, forgetting about almost everything. Ten minutes on a Sunday.

It’s been hot for the past couple days…triblend romper hot. Kind of disgusting, but fun for acai bowls in the grass. Felt pretty prepared with a blanket and all but turns out full-on pavilions are de rigeur these days. Where are people even buying these things? I never see them for sale in stores. Cause you know I want one. I may or may not settle for a tent with lots of zippers.

Shakuhachi gave me a reason to love pink. Australian designers just keep on coming out with those pieces that are as wearable as they are different.

I’m really picky about tortoiseshell shades but these are perfect and feel vaguely know, unlike my 9,000th faux fur collared coat I have on here…anyway, they were a gift via my trip to New Zealand fashion week along with my favorite round pair. Finally thrifted a long black skirt (sorry, won’t say ‘maxi’ as much as Anna won’t say ‘bootie’..typing it in quotations doesn’t count) and painted my nails this questionable shade over lunch. Which made my sandwich taste like nail polish + I feel like I accidentally ate some off of my index finger and have been slightly depressed about it ever since.
