little life update / 02

19 May 2015

does that date really say... 19 May? Meaning it has been over 20 days since I have last posted? Can someone please tell me where that time has gone!?

I seem to have been very busy in those 20 days, so here's what's been up!

+ My school had its formal (prom) last week, I was excited to dress up! I went with my friend Cal who does amazing film making and photography. I had such a great time, there was a Photo Booth, and a live band. My dress was made from neoprene (like scuba diving outfits) from ASOS, my shoes from the iconic, my earrings and bangle from ASOS. My favourite part was seeing all my friends looking and feeling amazing - I spent most of the night gawping about how beautiful they all looked! Here are a few photos I got with my friends when I was there! (I wasn't sure about sharing these on here but hey, I did!)

+ I went to see Dior & I. This movie is amazing and I need to be a fashion designer. It was such a good movie about Raf Simons and how he creates his first couture collection for Dior in just 6 weeks. A must see for anyone interested in fashion!

+ I have been doing a lot of design work for Visual Art Design at school - I am loving it so much. We are currently taking our artists models and making our own posters for our event. I am SO glad I ended up swapping to a music festival, it is so much better because I can use pictures of the artists! These are some of the posters I have come up with, using photoshop and a tablet.

+ I also took the first round of photos for my photography project at school a few days ago, and they look better than I wished! It was such a relief, as you never know how ideas in your head will turn out in real life. I am not going to release any photos yet as they are for an internal assessment, but I did post one on my instagram if you want to see!

+ There was an earthquake (the first one I have ever felt) with the epicentre in my little town! It was a magnitude 6 and it was pretty scary. Apparently NZ has a really big overdue one so I hope that doesn't trigger it!

I am sorry about the sparse lack of posts here, I am always trying to post regularly as well as keeping up the standard! I hope you are all doing well, isn't this year going fast!?

autumn road

28 Apr 2015

Yesterday, it was a public holiday in New Zealand due to ANZAC day. As something kind of relaxing and different, my family decided to go out and take photos of the lovely autumn colours appearing everywhere! I grabbed the opportunity to do an outfit post - woohoo!

We found the most gorgeous orchard that was all turning a beautiful yellow to orange, and the most amazing little spot down one of the rows. I grabbed my favourite autumn outfit and off we went!

I am wearing my absolute favourite sweat from Country Road (my perfect colour). It is great for those colder days, and so soft too. I also have on my relaxed black pants, and a graphic tee, both from Country Road.

As you might know if you follow me on instagram, I recently got a wacom tablet (which I am in love with) and I was worried about it in my bag, getting scratched or dented (or dropped). This one turned out to be only $15 once there was a discount and a $20 voucher! I could not believe it, grey felt, and from Witchery? What more could I want?! See it here.

I am also wearing this cute silver bar bracelet from ASOS, and silver hexagon earrings which you can't see from Witchery (similar here), and my leather chelsea boots from Topshop.

I hope you enjoyed seeing one of my oufits this autumn, and aren't the colours of the trees just beautiful? Also, I would love to know what your autumn essentials are!?

Lots of love, -Chloe
