Dressember: day 5.

So I’m a bit slack and didn’t get dressed yesterday, thus no day 4 blog post. I lounged around the apartment in leggings and a singlet, which I also tend to sleep in. Thus the not getting dressed part. Why bother getting all dressed up if you’re not even going to leave the house? Lazy, but brilliant.

So anyway, I continued with dressember today with a pretty cool tunic I got from Autograph when visiting Australia. I thought it would be great, because it is sleeveless, and today was a bloody hot/humid day. Seriously, I was sweating like a pig.

Why do they call it sweating like a pig? Do pigs even sweat?

Back to the dress.

Downside is that IT DOESN’T BREATHE. So here I was, on a stifling hot day, wearing the worst dress imaginable. I think the way to best describe it was ‘melting’. Yanno, like the which in The Wizard of Oz. JUST LIKE THAT.

It has some upsides to it though, like looking pretty and having an empire line and the domes, which make it look all punk like. COME AT ME BRO.

Needless to say, I was pleased to get out of it at the end of the day.

Naturally, I paired it with leggings. THEY ARE NOT PANTS.

Dressember: day 3.

Today was pretty hot and muggy, so I decided to go with my super summery dress (with leggings).

I got it from a shop called Caroline Eve. Not sure if they are throughout NZ, I’ve only ever been to them while in Hawke’s Bay, but they have some decent stuff.

It’s so pretty and bright. It doesn’t give you that “ugh, I’m wearing too many clothes” feel either. Perfect for going for a walk to the mall, along Takapuna beach and eating an ice cream. In which the messy child in me dripped ice cream on my dress, but I hope you can’t notice that.


Oh, and yay for empire line! Sort of.
