Since finishing university for the year I've kind of been in limbo. I have this on going argument, in my head, debating what I should actually do for the next three months. Still without an answer this week seemed to fill itself in pretty well so maybe that's just a sign I shouldn't plan anything; I'm all for it. We'll see how long it takes before I succumb to boredom and start buying box sets of old TV series.. shouldn't be long. Here's le highs and lows..
I wasn't going to post this lookbook until I went in store today and completely feel in love with it. I've always been a fan of the Glassons edt. lines, but this one is exceptionally good in my opinion. If you're in need of some good basics for summer, look no further. My favourite piece in particular is the pleated culottes, they're perfect for casual balmy nights or paired with a dressier boot for a night out. It's taken a while for the culotte to reach NZ shores but I think this trend is one to stay because it's too easy to pull off, and if you're anything like me, that's lazy girl fashion in a nutshell. Get it girl!
The first photo was taken earlier today and it's safe to say that I've surrendered to the weather since, sitting in my oversize hoodie, drinking tea with the heater on full. I went away for the weekend and was lucky enough to be able to soak up hours of overwhelming heat before I came back, and if it wasn't for an appointment tomorrow I probably wouldn't have come back. On the plus side, it's left me with a lot of free time to plan and ponder the future since the end of university really isn't that far away. Better late than never, here's the highs and lows of the past week, and what's to come..
Lately the weather has been so horrible that I haven't actually managed to take out my camera without the fear it's going to start pouring down, which really doesn't help my 'bloggers block'. I'm planning on taking it with me this weekend though so I should have some cool photos to share hopefully by the end of it. For the moments in-between though you should check out my Instagram because I try to keep that up to date most of the time. Also, in for all of December I'm going to try and post every other day just to try something new, pressures on! So anyway, if you want to find me, I'm @kendraalexandra and if you're using the Liketoknow.it app then you can shop my looks directly from Instagram to save the awkward search-everywhere-for-the-items scramble, which leads to heaps of comments asking for the links etc. A million times easier and it's fun to search others too.
On occasion I find myself sort of lost for what to post. Bloggers block I guess. Usually it's just when I don't know what to post, but this time it's more about waiting on other people to get back to me about certain plans. I really hate relying on other people for things, especially when it means it's all out of my control. In the meantime I don't want to post anything that my hearts not in, and this kind of spirals to me just not wanting to post at all.. Such a bad cycle. When this happens I tend to go searching for photos to remind me why I started my blog in the first place, which brings me to the ones from the For Love & Lemons look book above. Photos like these have a type of power that can empty wallets. Good motivation for creation.
I'm finally starting to feel like I'm on holiday. My days have been spent in the sun, completing projects I've had on my to-do too long and seeing friends, with my nights filled with fireworks and Paper Towns. Apparently it's seriously easy to lose yourself in a book only to check the time and it's 3am and you're wondering where the time went - I've done that several times this week. I don't know what it is about hot weather but it instantly makes me feel 100 times better, and I am determined to enjoy every last second of it over the next few months. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
