Daisy chain

Lover daisy chain dress (similar), Karen Walker cardigan, Chloe susanna boots, Proenza Schouler PS11 bag, KW bunny bracelet, Gorjana stacking rings

With every day feeling like just another excuse to be lazy and throw on a breezy sun dress or tee and skirt combo, I can’t help but take that laziness one step further and elect to reach for the same select few. This dress being one of them. It’s one of those things that I missed out on the first time around, not quite realising its full potential, only to happen across it at a later stage. A little bit of alteration to bring down the hem line bringing the wearability to an all time high. And of course, it’s Lover, so that by default seems to earn it a place in my wardrobe.

Seems strange to think that January is already over, and yet one month in, I already feel like I have learnt a lot. Such things as, don’t attempt to run 14km outside when you haven’t done so in two years, the next new big thing is always around the corner whether you know it or not, and New Zealand has a lot more to offer than I ever imagined – to the point that I’m already mentally thinking of places to go that are road-trip worthy.

I’m not sure how much luck I’m truly having with my New Year’s resolution, after spending time identifying the missing gaps it almost feels like starting from scratch would be so much simpler. It probably doesn’t help that my impatience for certain things has reached new levels. But, on the positive side, I have somehow miraculously managed to cut down on my chocolate/sugar consumption, which is never an easy feat for the girl who brought home a dedicated suitcase of chocolate, candies, and peanut butter when I was last in the United States. How have you all been going with your resolutions? Hopefully more successful than I’ve been!

    Haha, I think you may be worse than me with chocolate and candy if you brought a whole suitcase home with you :p
    I love that dress, it’s so pretty! I’m glad you were finally able to get your hands on it 🙂 and the Chloe boots look amazing on you

    Oh I feel so much better now to know that I am not alone in identifying new wants when I thought I’d turned over a new leaf. However for a girl who doesn’t normally eat chocolate, I have eaten a lot of it this week.

    Your whole outfit is lovely but I am especially taken with your immaculate garden. What a lovely backdrop for your pictures.

    Lovely floral dress, and I really like it in combo with the boots! Nice! As for resolutions, I didn’t make any, so don’t feel too bad. 😉

    I admire anyone that can cut down on the sugar/chocolate consumption. Oh boy do I try! I felt your pain when you mentioned the 14km run off the bat. Ouch! I did that once too and seized up for a couple of days. I hope you’ve recovered by now. Super cute dress. Lover makes the best!

    i agree it was a bit of shock that we’re into the second month of the year already…i feel like i’m still tying up loose ends from last year!

    lovely to read about your queenstown trip in your previous post since i’m still fresh from my NZ holiday high.

      I’m hoping to get to go back next month for another wedding, so fingers crossed I’ll get to explore more of its beauty! Need to see more of the South Island, that’s for sure
