Rainy Mc Pour-a-lot...

You know when I said I wanted it to be autumn already? Well, I lied!

23rd May 2010

Its been rainy, grey, rainy, wet, grey, rainy and a little bit more rainy for the past week and it will continue on into the weekend. And while I don't want it to be the sort of sticky, ring-your-clothes-out-every-five-minutes-because-you're-sweating-so-much-because-its-so-gosh-darn-hot type weather, I would like it to be the sunny warm Sydney I have come to love.

David and I both feel the cold, and everyone has been saying how much we must love the weather at the moment because it must be so much warmer than Dunedin (which, I might add, it is. Dunedin was minus 1 the other day). But David and I are soft and will be even softer when we go back to visit Dunedin in November.

I love autumn colours, I love autumn leaves, and I love the thought of dressing cosily. But truth be told, I don't like the cold and I am bad at layering, and all I want to do is wear something simple and pretty that doesn't require much thought in the morning when getting dressed (also, simple pretty dresses are in abundance in my wardrobe, layering essentials are not. Come on customs!!).

These photos were taken by David on Sunday while we were waiting for the bus which was very very late. It was pouring down and cold. We were supposed to go to a poetry reading. We went to Kmart instead, bought a queen sized faux mink blanket for the bed and went home.

PS) Do you like my hair? I love it so much more when its short, sweet and curly. So much so that I made David cut more of it off on Saturday night because it wasn't short enough. I taught David how to layer, now he is a hair cutting pro. I think that will be his next career move if academic life doesn't suit.

  2. Like the new haircut - I'm too chicken to get mine cut - ha ha!

    I agree - I love the Autumn in principal - all the colours, but the cold does get a bit much.

    Raincoats are well and good until the actually get soaked :)

  3. I was wondering why your hair looked shorter :)
    I hate the grey skies and wet weather too! I hope it warms up after I return..

  4. I was actually thinking at the first photo how gorgeous your hair was looking! I love it - so very pretty :-) And yay for having your man-friend able to cut it for you! Double win!

    I've been enjoying getting some wear out of some cardigans lately, but they only go so far... I feel the cold too. Remind me again why I've volunteered to move to London??

  6. I love your hair, it's so cute! :)

    And I agree with you about autumn-I always say I'm thrilled about it, but then once it actually shows up, I just get frustrated. I like it in theory. But I don't like getting drenched in freezing rain and wind. I do love autumn clothes, though, especially cardis! :)

  7. Your hair looks so sweet! And I love your pink cardigan :)

    Oh and yes - people wore jeans to the ballet. I can't quite believe it either. I am planning to dress up for high tea too - so we'll both be afternoon tea appropriate :)
