Whenever I make a new purchase, I’m always itching to wear it from the moment that I get home. Considering that it’s winter here in New Zealand, I haven’t had much of an opportunity to wear these Celine heels that I bought while in Paris, as it has been raining intermittently. Yesterday provided me with that chance, as we had one of those rare warm winters days. Like with all new shoes, I still need to wear them in a little as the leather is a bit stiff, hence the footwear change to some glitzy flats in the late afternoon, when it became clear that more walking would be on the cards.

    Wow, can’t believe it was so warm in August that you could go bare-legged! Wellington is sure trying its best to make me miss it more than ever. Your heels are absolutely gorgeous. And you got to meet Karen Walker! How awesome!

    Such a nice outfit! I really like your leopard-print skirt, which adds a twist to this chic outfit and the Celine heels are of course gorgeous! Hope you are enjoying a sunny w-e!

    I really love your cardigan. I have been searching high and low for one like this and I cannot find it. Also as closet fashionista says you really do have the perfect wardrobe x

    Haha, I actually prolong wearing new items when I buy them! I’m not sure why, I just always have =/

    The shoes look amazing and what it is really nice is the addition of the grey cardigan which tones the outfit down but in the nicest way. I like the little touch of blue in the bracelet – a kind of blink and you will miss it detail but really sweet. Being from England, I know very little about Karen Walker but she looks like a name I need to be looking at more often.

    Your skirt is really cute and I’m surprised that even in winter you can have warm days, you are very lucky 🙂

    it’s so odd to think about you having winter when over here we’re in the middle of the summer
    but looking at your pictures I think you don’t have a winter like we have? snow and all?
    I love the skirt, it is so chic!

      We don’t get the snow where I live, which is lucky, but quite often we get the wind which can be bitterly cold!

    Oh, you always look so fabulous! Love the new site as well (I’m a bit behind on my blog reading haha).
    In regards to purchases…I’ve always been a bit of a saver. I love trying on new purchases as soon as I get home, but when I think about “debuting” the item – it always has to be for the right occasion, if you know what I mean! xx
