Dressember day 16 & 17

How is it even this dark?? #dressember day 16 (no repeat yet!)

Grey & black mottled dress (2 sizes too big, it's pinned to keep it up) and a cardigan because New Zealand apparently doesn't believe in Summer. 

A wrinkled skirt for #dressember day 17

Knit & lace jumper from Portmans, striped skirt from farmers, & my favourite leather jacket. 

Wrinkled skirt, dirty jumper, & last night's hair. Hungover Saturday. 

Why won't my fringe ever stop growing?

No outfit repeats yet!

Dressember day 14

Chandelier t-shirt & a linen mini skirt. 

Today I spent the afternoon with Andy drinking coffee & putting the world to rights. We didn't get very far.

Dressember day 13

Classic. Far too short for #dressember day 13. I'll put tights on if I leave the house!

An all too short Supré dress for a housewifely day.

Today I learnt that, pretty surely, being a housewife is not for me. Today I had nothing nothing nothing at all to do. So I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, shopped for and cooked dinner for my husband. 
I did not enjoy it all that much. 

So in protest, during it all I watched a series by Richard Dawkins on religion (shock!) called "The Root of All Evil?" then "Paradise Lost 1: the Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills" about the West Memphis Three. 
Excellent documentaries both. I highly recommend them. 

Just realised I'm watching Dawkins while sitting with my jesus pillow! #lovedawkins

Dressember day 12

Looking very officious for #dressember day 12

Dress from Cue, jacket from Portmans.

It was an official looking morning, I had an appointment to sign back up with my temping agency (sigh) and I always feel more competent if I look ... like this.

However, I am not as dedicated as Amy and this is the first of three outfits today. They are all dresses (PROMISE!) but the other two will not be photographed. I am lazy.

Also, I got to play photographer today!

365 in 2011 - double edition

Oh Darling 365

Sunday: lazy day. Hungover and unemployed.
The epitome of lazy days. I was hungover and newly unemployed.

Monday: first day at the office after the election
The first day back in the office, when we knew it wasn't going to turn out well.

Tuesday: nearing home
I have no idea what the graffiti near my house says, but I like the look of it.

Wednesday: knit-bombed sculpture
"Solace of the Wind" statue and his yarn-bombed ensemble.

Thursday: walking home
Walking home, rather late.

Friday: Heading off at sunset
Heading to Auckland, heading into the sunset.

Saturday: Down by the docks
Whenever I'm in Birkenhead I like to stop by the ferry terminal at night, there's a great view back to the city.

Sunday: Rain and vines
The guest bedroom at my in-laws place is under an arch overgrown with vines. I love it.

Monday: Crystal Enclosure by Alan Sonfist
We visited the newly opened Auckland Art Gallery. One of my favourite pieces was this one, Crystal Enclosure by Alan Sonfist.

Tuesday: Heading back to Wellington
Auckland was just a brief visit for my father-in-law's birthday.

Wednesday: first day I really felt unemployed. Not fun.
The first day I really felt unemployed. Not even strawberries cheered me up.

Thursday: Reflected light
I felt invincible. I hauled our tree up from the garage, constructed, and decorated it. All by myself. Lights and everything.

Friday: heading home after lunch with coworkers
I lovelovelove this graffiti-ridden building on lower Cuba street.

Saturday: sun in Civic Square
The weather was beautiful. I took my book to Civic square and lay on the grass under the shade of a tree.


Ridiculous hair

Dressember day 11

Cashmere sweater & miniskirt. Classic NZ summer. #dressember day ... 11?

Heart jumper from ASOS, black linen mini skirt from Glassons.

A classic Wellington summer day. Too cold for a t-shirt, too warm for layers. Sweater and skirt is the only way.
