There are few things in life that actually make getting dressed easier in the morning, and this jumpsuit is one of them. It's Winter appropriate featuring both long sleeves and legs, it has POCKETS, the v neck cut is a perfect compromise to an otherwise covering outfit and all you need to remember to wear is shoes (and underwear maybe). There are few full body jumpsuits that I think work, but the construction of this one shows off your waist, while simultaneously making your legs look miles long - a ten in my book. The jumpsuit is from the Christchurch based online label Blackeyepeach that design timeless pieces your wardrobe will thank you for. It sounds cheesy, but there really is nothing better than investing in pieces you know you'll wear years from now. 

I got my Senso Robyn heels back just in time to shoot these photos, I think they complement my all black shoe collection nicely. Nothing like breaking in your brand new shoes in layers of mud and on rocky shores. Safe to say I am now an expert walker in them and will have no trouble this Saturday night at our friends 21st. These photos were actually taken in my small hometown a couple hours from where I live now, I'll never get over how diverse the landscape is there; endlessly inspiring. The backdrop of my childhood was so beautiful, it's hard to imagine areas of the world that aren't the same and although I do love living in the city, the country will always be what I consider home. 



Exploring Wellington

Thinking back on it all now, this week has been pretty busy. I was in Wellington visiting friends until Wednesday, then I made the trip home on Friday for the weekend. In between I managed to visit friends and family, organise work, shoot, explore and catch up on Pretty Little Liars (let's be honest, University is my last priority). I have a feeling that this week isn't going to be must quieter since I have a lot of other work to catch up on, but I wouldn't have it any other way. So with that said, here's my highs and lows of the week.

The Road Travelled

There's a certain point where I need to admit that my planning ahead never works out. So many times I wanted to shoot photos while traveling, but due to weather/plans/company it quickly becomes more and more difficult. So basically, this is my excuse for not sharing more of my own photos with you right now which I'm annoyed at myself for. Despite this, I have a weekend ahead planned in which I can finally get on top of my work load for good and I have even bought a diary dedicated to becoming more organised, wooo. 

I know I've said this over the years, and you've probably experienced it if you're a blogger yourself, but occasionally I stumbled upon these kind of set backs that completely discourages me and sort of puts me in this deflated mood. I guess it's something that happens to all of us at points in time and so I've been scrolling the tumblr feed looking for something to spark my interest; channeling a free spirit and endless opportunities.

I can't decide whether I like posting the full post or just a picture or two which you can then continue to read - thoughts? I'm currently exploring Wellington, making the most of the limited time I have left here. It's strange to think I only lived here months ago, but now I feel like I haven't been here at all. I love this city though, I'd move back in a second if it was going to help me get to where I want to go. Sadly, it isn't at the moment so I'm taking the time to enjoy it like I'm a tourist on holiday, eating at all the best cafes and exploring the scenery. There's nothing like exploring a place you've become so familiar with as though it's your first time seeing it all.

Silencieux

There's nothing like a bright jacket to add a little something to an otherwise monochromatic outfit. This jacket has been a staple in my wardrobe this Winter as it's made from wool and it super warm. I've been pretty lazy with my dressing since the weather has deteriorated, so easy and comfy outfits are my go to this season. A good striped top is an essential, I have this in two different variations which have been worn to death. I love how the deep blue matched Queenstown's waters quite perfectly, so stunning!

It's so nice to be sitting in a warm bed with a hot tea editing these photos while remembering how freezing it was outside this day. The traveling I've done lately reminds me how much I hate staying in one place too long, and how I miss the change. Familiarity is safe, I like change. That's probably the answer to why I'm soooo incredibly indecisive..




Queenstown Encore

A couple of weeks ago I tripped up for a week during the Uni holidays to stay with my friend Shelby at her house in Queenstown for a change of scenery. There's nothing quite like a simple trip out of town to leave you feeling refreshed and ready for the next semester of the year. It was so nice to be able to explore parts that you'd only know about if you lived there, and to see much more of a place that is so close, yet I've always taken for granted. I guess for tourists this is a part of NZ that is a necessary visit, but when you are surrounded with beautiful surroundings your whole life you really forget that it's not like this anywhere in the world. Even nicer, the weather was uncharacteristically warm so it was perfect for adventuring. I have some other posts planned that we shot up there, but for now here's a short photographic diary of a sort - as well as my highs and lows of the week.
