Sometimes it’s important to take a step back and just have a little bit of breathing room. I think it’s a genuine necessity to have a special place to relax and drift away. You know; just allowing your thoughts to blissfully float away and do whatever they please. The really tricky part is being able to capture the really good ones…

Welcome to my favourite spot – the ‘secret park’ as I lovingly call it. This is where I go to relax, be calm, and most importantly – let my thoughts wander. Luckily, this time I was perfectly prepared to harness my thoughts by bringing along a collection of anchors – via my outfit… It may have also helped that I brought along a notebook! The dress (c/o Pepa Loves) is one that I am still obsessing over, weeks after it’s arrival. Sailor style is my favourite ever, and I was so in love with the anchor print that I ordered a pair of trousers in the same fabric. My outfit still didn’t feel like it had quite enough anchors so I paired it with the tote bag that you can learn to make here. Goodness, I’m surprised I wasn’t anchored down too, carrying all that lot around!

  3. Aw so beautiful Jo! Love that photo of the ducks all lined up, I’m taking strategic guesses as I also frolic around parks in Christchurch as to which one it is! hehe
