In a Field of Flowers! 

I’m so excited to let you know some news I’ve been wanting to share! For the next few months I’m going to be blogging over on the Sugarhill Boutique blog! I’ve been a long-time fan of their beautiful brand, so I couldn’t be more thrilled about it! My very first task was to pick out something from the AW12 collection – what luck, eh. The Windsor dress won me over instantly – I’m sure you know by now that a crisp white pan collar gets me every time!

We visited this breathtaking flower patch with hopes of constructing a crown to match the dress. I soon realized it wouldn’t possible, as the flowers snapped so quickly that I was barely even able to keep them on my head! I’d thought a crown would perfectly match the castle print – and add to the royal look too. It wasn’t quite meant to be though, so I settled for a handful of flowers (which are now residing in a jar in my kitchen). Almost as if it knew I was wearing an Autumn piece (it’s Spring here in New Zealand), the weather turned as soon as we started taking photos. Dark clouds lingered overhead, and half of these were actually taken as the rain fell. The things that us fashion bloggers do, eh! Luckily we weren’t too far from home, so after a mad dash in the rain, we were soon warm and dry. Spring showers; you get me every single time!

  5. These are GORGEOUS! I sure hope these are going to be used to the lookbook on their website or something. A castle print in a field of flowers with a pan collar is pretty much the best thing ever. Besides the gloomy weather. Now I know how you were feeling while it was our summer and you winter though- you are in a field of flowers while we had our first mini snow today here, UGH!
    Happy Friday to you and excited to see more of your colabs with this company, congrats to you on that!

    • Opposite seasons are so weird! Even though I love (x 10000!) warmer weather, I always feel so envious of the northern hemisphere going into autumn! x

  7. I was very impressed by these pictures. Though you’re smiling, they made me feel sad a bit. But it was a good sadness – like when the evening comes and you understand – there’s nothing to do anymore, just go to bed)
