Our weather this last week has just been absolutely amazing and the sunshine has done wonders for everyone's mood! Today after work, Neil came and picked me up and we decided, hey let's start the weekend with a sweet treat from Gloria Jean's and then go home (as I have quite a bit of work to catch up on before heading to the Gift Fair next week, eek! Exciting!). However, Neil decided to take a different route home and we ended up driving the back country roads. It was actually quite refreshing to see a bit of the country side and made me appreciate New Zealand so much more!

We ended up looking down this long stretch of road with beautiful farm lands on both sides and just an atmosphere of complete serenity. It took a few shots for Neil to decide to actually look at the camera, but we got there in the end :) I absolutely LOVE this Threadless shirt of his, eventhough he thinks it is a bit girly - I totally think he pulls off the butterfly!

I was brave with this outfit, as I have never tried wearing a shirt over a dress (yes, everything else was in the wash, but the dress was too cold just to wear by itself). But I actually attempted it, so put together a LBD with a buttoned shirt over the top - I suppose the dress really just ends up looking like a skirt anyway. Didn't quite work well until the belt was added and created more of a figure rather than looking like a sack! So yay for being creative with the clean clothes that was left in the wardrobe! I think it's time for some washing this weekend (why do I always leave it for the weekend when I just want to relax?)!

  3. beautiful! i think the shirt looks cute over the dress ;D

  4. In my opinion it lookes amazing, but yea the belt realy puts the whole outfit together! :D

  5. It look so much like the country side in southern parts of Australia, reminds me of country drives when I was little.

    The outfit looks good. I know what you mean having to get creative with whats left in the wardrobe. Im always leaving my washing till it piles up.

  6. Belts really do wonders. I think if I didn't wear belts I would look like a sack 99.9% of the time wearing the sort of dresses and sweaters I wear.

  7. Aw looked like a lovely road trip. I'd love to visit New Zealand one day, it looks stunning x
