Summer’s end

Equipment sleeveless blouse, Ashley Fogel jumper (similar), Lover poppy pleat skirt, Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Diva necklace, Gorjana wrap bracelet, Marc by Marc Jacobs bow bracelet

Currently sitting in bed trying to fight off a cold/flu, which after the tiring past few weeks, was probably more than overdue. Insisting on running errands yesterday when it was coming on was certainly not the best option in hindsight. I’ve been trying to make the most of the remaining warm weather by pulling out anything that is obnoxiously bright, anything that seems to scream summer, before I put it into hibernation for the winter. Perhaps it’s the slight fever I’m running, or maybe I’m ready for the change in season; whatever the reason I can’t help but look forward to cooler days, and excuse for excessive layering and wearing lots of black.

    Here you are wishing for cooler days and here I am praying for warmer ones. I’m tired of my darks and want to shed my dusty grey layers and shimmy in something colourful and fun.

    Another perfectly put together combination and I never seem to tire of those kitty flats. They are purrfect (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

    Jamie-Lee, I hope you feel better soon. I love that bright skirt of yours. Goes so well with the grey jumper. I’ll definitely try a similar combination now that I finally have a bright printed skirt.

    This outfit is so cute and the perfect transition piece as the weather gets warmer!! I’m from Chicago so all of your recent posts are giving me so much inspiration for whenever it warms up here – Hopefully it’s soon (fingers crossed!)

    I love the skirt – so pretty. It’s really great to see some New Zealand fashion designers on a blog. I’m looking forward to summer after having a double winter (Southern hemisphere then Northern) Bah, my skin is pastier than a pasty thing >:(
