the-hills-are-alive-2

Myself and Barnaby started a travel website a couple of months back, & the really, really cool thing is that it means we are seeing a whole lot more of our very own New Zealand. Last week (or thereabouts) we visited one of truly the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my entire life. Living in NZ, we are pretty blessed with insane views – and they can become the ‘norm – just because you see them.. well, everywhere! So you know it must’ve been a good place to stop this kiwi gal right in her tracks.

The stunning mountains would make the perfect backdrop for well, pretty much anything, but I do feel that they look pretty fabulous with my lacy green dress. The shades of green really complimented each other – and naturally I had to bring in a burst of my favourite colour – bright yellow! It was absolutely roasting during our entire stay, so I’m so glad I decided to pack only dresses (although in honesty I probably would’ve done the same; rain or shine!)

By the way, these photos were taken out the front of our Purepod, which really was the dreamiest spot. I’ll be sharing more about it all on my next post – prepare to be blown away!

P.s. One of my FAVOURITE online stores – Shopbop is holding the most amazing Black Friday sale. I’ve already swooped in and bought a pair of Charlotte Olympias (which are now sold out, so that was lucky!) Enter the code GOBIG16 for 25% off.

blossoms-and-bell-sleeves-1

If you’re ever, ever thinking of popping down to New Zealand – more specifically, Christchurch, please, please make sure that you visit in Spring! Often referred to as ‘the Garden City’ it certainly lives up to it’s name when the seasons change!

As it was such a beautifully warm day (yay!) I kept my outfit super simple. This ASOS dress (bought months ago in one of those treat yo’self moments) is a real statement piece – mostly just because of those amazing bell sleeves. It turned out to be a whole lot shorter than I expected – so I wore shorts underneath (which turned out to be quite fortuitous anyway – the winds were super gusty!)

Who knows whether it’s the pretty colour scheme or the fact that it’s just plain old getting warmer – but I am massively enjoying this transitional season. Buuuuut probably just mostly ‘cos it’s just getting warmer ; )
