All Dressed Up in Pastel Shades 

Wellington, it’s been far too long! There is nothing quite like falling in love with a city all over again. After a five o’clock wake up call yesterday morning (!!) we finally made it to the capital city. It’s been well over a year since our last visit, and I hadn’t realized how much I truly do miss it. My own wee city of Christchurch is significantly lacking in the building department, so I’ve spent most of this trip with my neck craned upwards – gazing at the old architecture.

For our waterfront adventures, I dressed fully in pastel shades. The dress I’m wearing is a scalloped piece that I hurriedly hemmed the day before our flight. I’m actually meant to list it in the shop next week, but I’m not sure whether I can part with it or not! The shoes are by bait footwear, and the pink tights were an eBay purchase.
