Joie ‘Felix’ top, T by Alexander Wang stripe t-shirt, Vince textured v-neck sweater Summer has officially begun in New Zealand, which can only mean one thing: summer wardrobe planning. I continuously seem to gear myself toward a wardrobe with a summer focus, which is odd considering the mostly mild to almost non-existent summers we get […]

Karen Walker dress, Glassons cardigan, Beau Coop x KW shoes, Country Rd socks, Alexander Wang devere bag, Cheap Monday ring, Marc by Marc Jacobs katie bracelet I have always been a sucker for sales.

Petit Bateau stripe top, girl. by Band of Outsiders skirt, Karen Walker trench coat, Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Alexander Wang devere bag This outfit isn’t anything that you haven’t seen before, a stripe and skirt combo and my beloved kitty flats.
