Glassons-Playsuit-Hat-6

Right, now back off to darling Autumn-y Christchurch we go..!

I’ve been really enjoying the colder seasons lately – particularly as they are the perfect excuse to wear more velvet! (Something about velvet + winter just goes hand in hand, don’t you think?) Mostly my sartorial choices lately have consisted of mustard and orange shades, but this Glassons playsuit had me swoonin’ the second I spotted it in the store’s window.

I thought the neckline of this romper would be a little out of my comfort zone, but to be blunt – I decided I don’t really care! It felt super low, but when I spotted my reflection in any passing mirrors it didn’t look anymore attention-grabbing than your bog-standard t-shirt neckline. Hopefully there are a few sunny days left so I can bring it out again soon!

Totaranui-Beach-11

When I told you I was at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world I certainly wasn’t lying! Totaranui is famous for it’s wondrously golden beaches – and although I was hopeful, I wasn’t sure it would be my dream temperature – we are in the middle of Autumn, after all. Luckily I packed my swimsuit, as by mid-morning, daily, we would hit the beach, usually with a book and Corona in hand (ahh, what a life!)

Now I’m curled up at home in my pyjamas, fully emerged in Autumn weather, Totaranui can’t help but feel a world away. I’m hope hope hoping for another great stint in warm weather as now we have a tent, we can escape any single time we like (eep, I genuinely can’t wait!) Oh, and if you enjoy the pretty New Zealand landscapes in these photos (I truly can’t stress how picturesque this was!) then you might be happy to know I filmed a little Totaranui guide! I just have to summon up the courage to record my massively kiwi accent for a voice-over, then it’ll be up on YouTube!
