The Edge of the City

I was definitely channeling the 1970s today when we went for a visit to one of Christchurch’s biggest (I think!) man made lakes! I  actually thrifted this skirt yesterday; I couldn’t resist it’s Parisian colour scheme! It was such a pretty sunny day, and it didn’t take long before I was sitting down on the grass and having a little sunbathe. I realized after we arrived there that I should have brought things for a picnic! Boo! The good news is that it means we will definitely have to venture back there again!

  2. I love the striping on the skirt – you can tell it’s vintage since the lines meet up perfectly along the seam! Nowadays those things don’t seem to matter. Gorgeous photographs!
