The Weekend Again...

I was really happy to see your comments on my last post - I'm so glad I'm not the only one who writes posts in my head after all. And I completely agree that once I've written my imaginary post, I tend to forget how I wrote it, and it never turns out quite the same. Oh well, the burdens us bloggers must bare...

Moving onto other things - this is not what I am wearing today. Yesterday a cold front hit little old NZ and its freezing.
I am sitting here in front of a warm heater with tights, a woollen skirt, a thermal, a woollen cardigan and a scarf on. On the bright side, it is the perfect weather for a date night with David! Tonight we are heading out to dinner and then to see 500 Days of Summer at the theatre. Yay.

I took these photos with a tripod the other day when it was warm and sunny out the front of my house. I love my house, its sunny, in a beautiful neighbourhood, doesn't cost millions to live there and has a large, lush garden to take photos in, and I will be most sad to leave it. I don't think there will be anything like this that doesn't cost a bomb in Melbourne, or London, or wherever we end up next year.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend - mine involves sewing, and hopefully lots of it!

  1. Such lush photos! I love your dress, so pretty!!!

  2. That dress is so gorgeous. The style, the pretty purple shade it is, it's just a perfect dress! Did you buy, make it, or is it vintage?

  3. Oh my gosh that would have to be one of the prettiest blog outfit photos I've ever seen!
    I went "oooh" out loud as I saw the first pic ;)

    The dress is divine and you really suit the colour. Also love your lippy, bag and shoes.

  4. You have a beautiful garden, and I love how your dress looks like it was meant to be among the lilacs in your hard.

  5. So, so beautiful – very pretty little pictures indeed! Have a lovely date.

    When I actually first saw these pics, I had a little envy moment of your gorgeous sunny weather :) I don't know if it makes you feel any better, but here in Melbs today I wore a winter coat and should have worn gloves too! And the heaters been going all week... :)
