Chocolate Overload

Top - Supre / Printed Jeans - Oneteaspoon / Shoes - Good ol' Converse / Watch - Ripcurl

I hope you all had a lovely day and indulged in a little (or a lot) of yummy chocolate treats.
I know I certainly did, I was spoilt by my Easter Bunny and have now made a pledge that after all of my chocolate is gone I'll steer clear of the sugary goodness for awhile.

Here are my oneteaspoon iggy's that I scored for just under $100 in a sale in a surf store here in Wellington, I got these and another paid of Madlove printed pants for $185 all up - so I basically got two for the price of one. Converse are also my go-to comfy shoes, they never fail me, and my oversized black top is a nice, loose fit which I like.
I spent the day chilling out with my boyfriend, eating chocolate, watching movies, walking and we also went out for a lurrrvely dinner.

I am now on a 2week 'study break' from Uni, so will have loads of time for blogging, yay!

Little Miss Procrastinator

T-Shirt - AS colour / Studded Jacket - Op-Shop(Thrifted) / Boots - Warehouse / Lipstick - Loreal Paris 716 Violet Vamp

I come to you from my bedroom, where I am meant to be completing a News Media assignment (due in two days) along with Fashion, Garment and P.R assignments - but instead I'm editing and writing a blog post.
Hi I'm Sam and I'm the biggest procrastinator of living history.
I'm also chugging my way through a Redbull which is so out of character for me. I never drink energy drinks, but in a hope to re-energise myself I'm downing it - hand in time really messes with my head I tell ya!
Anyway onto the outfit - I'm trying to photograph my outfits most days, so if they aren't always amazing I apologise, but I'm just being real and documenting what I wear on a daily basis. I'd also like to add that I'm a poor Uni student so if I have some items on repeat, that's the reason why... I'm sure my fellow Uni students can relate :)

The 'T-Shirt dress' as I like to call it is actually just one of my boyfriends T-Shirts that I nicked out of the wardrobe while rushing to get ready this morning. Luckily I'm a shortie so can easily get away with his T-Shirts as dresses and no-one even knows ;) He got it from AS colour, which I think may be only a New Zealand store, but I've linked it about so you can check it out.
I found this denim jacket at an Op-Shop(thrift shop) sometime last year for around $10, and then I put the studs in the collar one day when I was feeling crafty. I have no idea why I did just a small section of studding? But I'm just rolling with it I think it looks fine.
Also lastly the boots - they're just a cheapo pair that I picked up to wear until I find my dream winter boot - and I've got my eye on a few!

Double Trouble

Creeper booties - Bronx via Wildpair / Black knit jumper / Vintage flower button down dress - thrifted

While moving house I re-discovered some pieces of clothing I completly forgot I had. The bootie style creepers that I'm wearing here were a favourite of mine last year, and I recently dug them out from the bottom of my shoe collection and thank god I did. They're just so comfy to wear and also add a sneaky bit of height which never hurts when you're under 5' like me. Being black suede they go with everything and are a great go-to item in my closet.
The floral button down dress that you can just see peaking out the bottom was from an op-shop, which means I scored it for a bargain and I'm definitely not complaining!
I'd just like to add that I'm SO excited for winter to finally arrive here in New Zealand - I lurrrrve layering and being nice and cosy warm.

Anyway don't forget to click hype if you like, and check our my instagram here for more on the go pictures of what I get up to.

What's your favourite go-to item in your wardrobe/closet?

Madlove & Converse

Watch - Ripcurl / Sneakers - Converse / Printed pant - MadLove / Tshirt - Warehouse / Sunnies - LeSpecs Halfmoon Magic

I've been home all day trying to get some of the masses of Uni work out of the way, I did get some Fashion illustrations done that I'm quite happy with...  Although this involved a truck load of tea consumption and lead me to realise that I think I've become the queen of procrastination. Success.

I threw this outfit on the other day while I was getting speed ready for Uni. I think that with the printed pants I don't really have to add much else to this outfit and I'm good to go. I love a good casual outfit every once in awhile.

I do have quite a few outfit pictures backed up on my computer so that means no excuses for long breaks without updating. Allllso I've recorded a video and have a few more in mind that I might put up on youtube then link to here. What do you think?

Don't forget to hype on lookbook for the love of my goofy poses ;)

All Black Errthang'

Dark Blue Docs / Silver Chunky Chain Necklace / Black Oversized Cape Top / Simple High Waisted Skirt / Assorted Rings / Nails - William Tell Me About OPI by OPI

Even though I felt a bit nun-ish while wearing this all black errthang' outfit I still love it and think the black on silver contrast is quite subtle but still stylish. I've been really getting into wearing a lot of black lately, and I know some may think that's boring as hell but otherwise I find it hard to feel 'put together.'

You may notice by looking through my previous posts that I love a good deep red/plum nail. I've acquired quite the collection of my ideal deep reds/plums and was going to do a post on my favourites if you would find it helpful? You may or may not notice I've chopped my hair - I really want to go shorter but I'm a wimp, I love the under the shoulder long bob look and keep an eye out because I may just get the courage to go for it!

Also; I'm sorry about the crap quality of my photos - I've just moved into a new apartment so finding a good spot and good lighting to take photos in is proving difficult with the amount of junk my boyfriend and I have stuffed into our small room.

Have a lurrrrvley day xx

P.s this shirt wasn't this see through in 'real life', it's just a hard fabric to photograph. Promise!

Stars + Stripes

Le Specs Halfmoon Magic,  Pandora Bracelet, ELE Flatforms

Flatforms are the bomb for 'fun size' people like me - they add some height while not killing your feet, which is actually relatively hard to do so it's a bonus these puppies are kinda comfy.
This is my type of easy, throw on Uni outfit - it's not the most glam but that doesn't worry me, some days I'm all about comfort.

One Teaspoon + Madlove

Madlove Roarr Skinny Jeans - Size XS / One Teaspoon Taipan Iggys - Size 6

Let me begin by saying that trying to save just isn't my cup of tea.
I picked up these printed pants/jeans the other day on sale, meaning I basically got two for the price of one, so I thought why not.
I don't have a lot of loud prints in my wardrobe, and even though monochrome is what Winter is all going to be about - I still couldn't resist.
I really like the fact that the One Teaspoon's are Camo colours, without being the predictable Camouflage print, making them just a bit different. They're also in a cropped length, which is perfect for a shorty like me (being 4'11/152 cm) that they fit me like a charm, no need for taking these babies up!
