Parks and Recreation

As I’m sure you can imagine, things are pretty hectic here! My boyfriend and I are staying at his Dad’s house as our flat is within the city cordon. We managed to gain access last week, so I have a few more possessions! Definitely a relief, as I all I had was a pair of dungarees and my boyfriend’s clothes! At the moment we are flat hunting, so crossing our fingers that something comes up soon!

We have both been super stressed lately, so decided to was time to ‘escape’ it all and take some pretty photos. I wore one of my favourite dresses; a vintage 1960s cut out scalloped shift dress. It is the most divine beige, and features such dreamy embroidery! We ventured to a recreational park close to where we are staying. The park is called The Groynes (which always makes me laugh!) We sat by the river and watched the ducks. After some time, two pukeko (New Zealand swamp hen) ventured over and tried to blend in with the ducks! It was very cute, and definitely a great way to spend the afternoon. Here are some photos:

I also wanted to thank everyone for all of the supportive comments. They have really meant a lot at this difficult time, thank you.

  1. i love your look and blog as well. i hope that all is well post-earthquake! thanks for your sweet comment, too!

  2. Is that some delicate embroidery I see on the dress? Very pretty.

    I can’t imagine how harrowing the whole thing must have been for you… at least now you don’t have to wear dungarees all the time anymore :) Hope you find a lovely airy apartment!

  3. that dress looks beautiful! i love the little cut out near the neck too. i’m so sad for your situation, i hope you manage to salvage more things xxx
