Subtle Shades Of Summer, the fashion version of 50 Shades Of Grey. As you can tell, I’m enjoying dressing for summer. I’m such a mood-influenced dresser, and nothing screams “it’s 30 degrees out” than wearing all white. Or maybe it just screams “I live in New Zealand and can’t go to The Hamptons”. A little bit overkill? Maybe. But I’m making the most of it before the rain comes back and I’ll be hiding in dark clothes once again.
I’m just popping in for this late night post because it’s the only spare time I’ve had so far this week. Yesterday I spent Waitangi day on Tawharanui Beach, gaining back my tan and not worrying about a thing. It was such a luxury to have a day off without thinking about some kind of deadline – freelancer lifestyle problems. The beach is a beautiful one an hour north of Auckland which I’d never been too and was well worth the road trip. I can’t wait to spend the rest of summer exploring all the others I’ve never seen.
This week has been a little crazy so it’s nice to be sitting here, wine in hand taking a minute for myself. I had a friend staying all weekend, then I filmed for a project all Monday (watch this space) and now I’m trying to get everything edited before I go to Flamingo Pier festival on Waiheke Island this weekend. While I’m pretty delirious and could do with at least a week of sleep, I feel so content. It’s like everything is falling into place, you know?
In other news, I have so much planned for the rest of February and March. It’s kind of crazy how fast time is going but I can say I’m making the most of it. Sometimes it’s easy to forget to make the most of what you have in your backyard so I’m making a conscious decision to do that this year. Especially since I feel like I’ll be staying in Auckland for longer than I had originally planned. Here’s to moving in and moving on with life in a more stable direction. I know, shock horror, this might be a sign of me finally “growing up”. Now, all I have to do is buy a car and start saving for a house…
