January has been a whirl wind month with our family making the most of the long weekends to get away between clients and festivals. The New Year saw us heading to coastal Opotiki where I styled hair for a gorgeous 50’s inspired wedding. While we were in Opotiki we enjoyed the beautiful beaches, relaxed ,read a book or two and did not much!
I picked up this relaxed dress in the Augustine Boxing Day sale. I was attracted to the bold pink, print and the contrasting stripes on the cuff. It turned out to be the perfect choice for lounging around at the beach and traveling. In the winter I will layer it with leggings, boots and my leather jacket.
When I’m in holiday mode I tend to lean towards more relaxed styling with bright and quirky elements.
When I saw this printed wrap skirt out thrifting I couldn’t resist it and with the right wrapping, pinning and belting I knew it would make a great summer dress. I like clothing that provides options in my wardrobe and its fun to look at a skirt or shirt and think of new ways to wear it.
I spent last weekend on the Raglan Artist Studio Tour with Amy, checking out local art and meeting some local creatives. Amy made me a beautiful porcelain cactus necklace for my birthday so I found some fabric to complement it and sewed my first top in 15 years….don’t judge the stitch !
