Is anyone else absolutely baffled that it’s October already?! I can barely believe it! Bring it on, I say. In New Zealand we are at the very beginning of spring. I’m particularly keen on all of the spring showers we’ve been experiencing lately – this year I am feeling extra prepared! It all started about a year ago when I bought this transparent raincoat. My attitude towards rain changed completely. You can style cute outfits even when the weather is rubbish, and people can still see them. Brilliant!
It’s something similar to the love affair I’m having with these cherry pink flats by Sun Jellies. They are the original French jelly mould, which means they were worn by fishermen in the 1940s. I know it sounds terribly sponsor-y, but I genuinely think this is super neat. I love knowing the back stories behind fashion (like for example: did you know that sneakers were first invented 1800?) Well, story or not (even though it’s a good one!) these jellies have been essentials during this rainy weather – they dry faster than you can even imagine. Hooray for embracing the 1990s – err… or the 1940s, I suppose!
Also – yellow is the best colour ever. It puts me in a good mood just looking at it!
