Seeing Red

(Desert Dweller Dress by Somedays Lovin' c/o Market HQ)

Well so much for Autumn! Here I am in April with bare arms and legs and beautiful sunshine all over me. Yes I'm more than a little pale (especially my ghostly legs - eek!) but I couldn't pass up this opportunity of perfect weather to run around in lighter layers and to be free of stockings and cardigans. We had a pretty average summer here in New Zealand this year so if we end up with a mild Autumn I'll be more than making the most of it! 

I've been really looking forward to wearing this dress as well. I love the sheer neckline and hidden buttons down the front. It'll be nice and easy to wear in winter as well with some stockings and a blazer over the top. I'm always thinking of how I can get the most wear out of my garments and never feel confined by an item being "too summery for winter" etc. That's what layers are for!

Anyway enough from me, I hope you're all enjoying your long weekend so far :) Mine has been so nice and relaxing, just what I needed! xx

  1. Beautiful photos, and I'm glad to see Hamilton has beautiful weather too! Also, it's refreshing to hear a New Zealander say 'stockings' :)

  9. Such a pretty dress! You're so lucky you're getting some Summer weather. In Cape Town this weekend we've literally had torrential downpour for three days straight! Ugh!

    I also always try and style and outfit for Summer and Winter whenever I buy something - saves so much money!

  16. You look beautiful. The red contrasts with your pale skin wonderfully. I think you would look great doing 'victorian' or 'goth' for Halloween or Fancy Dress! :)
