Somewhere Only We Know

All dressed up for a big Saturday night. The three of us however ended up staying in and had such a great time with my friends parents, her Mum made an amazing roast and the conversation was wonderful. It was such a fun night!
I bought this dress a few years ago at an op shop for about $4 or something. Most people don't believe me because it fits like a glove and I have never had to alter it. Replacing 'the little black dress' with a 'little brown dress' perhaps?

The cat wanted in on the photo action too. Or he is just a little too affectionate

Oh My God, Whatever, Etc

Snapped a few photos before I came back down to Dunedin for about four days before I head back home again for Easter. The title of this post is possibly my favourite Ryan Adams song, I listened to it so much on the bus! One thing I hate about travel though is clothing. I usually resort to wearing whatever is left or more importantly whatever is clean! While I was home though Mum gave me a few new skirts she bought for me while on a wee road trip of the South Island. Surprisingly this leather look skirt is actually denim with a crackled coating so it is super easy to wear because it moves with you, unlike some other leather which has a mind of its own and makes you stick to everything on hot day.
Got a little bit delayed on posting this though so i'm back home again tomorrow! Just to confuse you all with the sequence of photo locations

3 Little Words

Seriously, can you believe it? No ponytail
The rest was finally long enough for a return to a wee bob, I wonder what will happen to it next

I returned home this weekend for a 21st party. It was a fun night, lovely to catch up with all the family and have a few too many beverages.
I snagged this peplum top at a dotti sale, because of the detachable sleeves of course. Sharp shoulders are very necessary in my humble opinion.

Rusty halo

Can you believe I caught such beautiful morning light? I am usually up before sunrise but I have never taken blog photos this early! Remind me next Thursday to not wear heels though, its my insanely busy day at uni and sore feet and pretty much falling asleep in lectures don't seem to make for a lovely day 

 When I was home the other weekend I went through the stuff I left at home while I was packing and found this cardigan thing in my wardrobe. Its probably not even meant for me but it was in there so I claim it! It takes the chill off, thanks Mum!

I made this particular button necklace a while back. I am building up quite a collection now but this is definitely the biggest and brightest. I bought a bag of these buttons years ago and I think the only time I used them was when a few of us threaded them through my friends dreadlocks last year after a few beverages. So this is the result of the many unused buttons

Nobody Listens to Silence

Busy, busy today at uni but thankfully it does keep me out of trouble though.
 As cold as it is, I am so happy it is cold again! So thankful to be able to chuck on some jeans and a blazer and run out the door. This is essentially my uniform but it is a uniform I like to wear so that makes it ok right? Right!

I remember when I first saw these boots it was love at first sight. However it did take me 6 months until I bought them! Luckily I did in the end

Looks Like Rain

The other weekend one of my brothers came down and stayed at the flat while he was on a diving course. Was pretty fun to catch up and we even went out for tea on Saturday night. Mum was pretty proud. We ended up walking through a field type thing on the way home and boy did these shoes sink! Was all fun and games though

A few years back my sister in law let me have this blazer when she was cleaning up what was the old office. I changed the buttons decorated the pocket flaps and added lazy daisies to the lapels. What do you know? Jazzed up jacket just like that! It is super cozy

You Will Always Be the Same

First day of lectures was pretty exciting. It is silly how excited I am to be studying again after 3 months off. It is still surprisingly warm here which makes the walk to uni a lot more pleasant than the rain.
I bought a new bag to carry my lecture books and laptop to uni , last years bag is looking a bit more worse for wear so it was about time!

These creepers are seriously amazing. Super comfy and make any outfit a bit more punk. Clearly a very necessary weapon in my arsenal of shoes

La Cienega Just Smiled

Had a few wee errands to run around town the other day, so comfortable was somewhat necessary for a change. I am still having a hard time getting used to it being warm down here though, last year it felt like winter was an all year season. Oh well, Dunedin is always a good place to be whatever the weather!

I was surprised at the amount of people that commented on my shoes, for once I am not the only one that thinks they are awesome! What a great investment
