{Labour} Weekend Wardrobe

Yesterday was a public holiday (Labour Day) here in NZ and unfortunately the weather in Christchurch was a little miserable. It did clear up enough in the afternoon for us to get out in the garden, and the mornings wet weather encouraged a brunch date at our local cafe Fava.

I am in LOVE with my new Adriano Goldschmied jeans that I picked up while in Perth – they honestly feel like I am wearing leggings, in fact they are so comfortable that I wore them on the back to back flights home. Along with the amazing fit they are a fantastic colour and have just the right amount of distressing. Expect to see these a lot!

NYFW Street Style

With New York Fashion Week now over (and London Fashion Week just kicking off), I thought I would round up some of my favourite street style looks from the super stylish ladies that were pounding the pavements around the shows in NYC.

Weekend Wardrobe

We headed to the Tannery yesterday to have a squizz in the shops and enjoy the sunshine, while having a lovely lunch in the courtyard of The Brewery. Their wood fired pizza is delicious; we had the Horatane which is generously covered in blue cheese, pear, thyme and smoked bacon on an amazing crispy base.

The Tannery has brought life to a very industrialised area of Christchurch. I love how many interesting and well respected retailers have got on board with this development and it is wonderful to see the car park full, meaning Cantabrians are keen to support such ventures.

On the way home we stopped in front of a warehouse garage door so Eli could quickly snap these pics of what I wore.






Tee – Sass and Bide (Last season but same style different patterns available)

Leather Jacket – All Saints (Old but similar here)

Jeans – BDG

Shoes – Nike ‘Dunk Sky Hi’ Wedge Sneaker

Current Fashion Faves

Although the last couple of days here in Christchurch have been warm, winter is definitely around the corner. I am ready to rug up and layer my daytime looks to beat the chill.

Here is a round up of looks that have been catching my eye for the cooler months – namely neutrals, ripped denim, black, leather and stripes.

Pretty in Pink…

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month here in New Zealand and to support this important cause I have taken the fabulous colour pink as inspiration for todays post.

Fedora on Sunday

Finally took the opportunity to wear my fedora for the first time on Sunday; hoping I don’t look like a cowgirl gone bad… Going to have to work on my poses in front of the camera – definitely no Kate or Miranda!! (Boots could do with a shine too!)
