Kate-Spade-Beyond-Yoga-1

Living in New Zealand can be pretty surreal sometimes. If you’re ever lacking in inspiration – or feeling ‘meh’ for any reason in particular, it only takes a short drive (or bus ride, if you time it right) to see some truly overwhelming sights. And believe me, there is an awful lot to see.

We drove for just over an hour to the beautiful (beyond belief!) town of Akaroa (more on that later!) and our first move was to go on a three hour – yes, three – uphill walk! Talk about intense. But seeing those views made it all worth it. I walked a lot of the track backwards so I could admire it as I went – not to mention that it was easier on the calf muscles!

It was a great chance to try out my latest gym set; a Kate Spade x Beyond Yoga polkadot crop top & bright pink tights that I bought from Shopbop. These tights were so warm it was brilliant! Especially when we got to the peak and almost blew over from the wild winds. Seriously, this was the most incredible trip ever – I am ridiculously excited to tell you all about it!

Akaroa-Lighthouse-3

We spent the past weekend away in the most beautiful little New Zealand town known as Akaroa. It’s a favourite getaway spot for locals – and I’m quite the fan too – although it’s been years since my last visit. One of the things I love most is the beautiful lighthouse. It sits on the edge of the bay so it can be seen by almost everywhere on the waterfront.

It only seemed right to get dolled up in one of my finest nautical numbers; in this case an appropriately coloured fit-&-flare from Chicwish. The hat is one I picked up in the ASOS sales not too long ago – and one that always seemed to finish off an outfit just right!

I am genuinely so looking forward to sharing more of Akaroa with you. You won’t believe just how beautiful it is!
