What I wore: To Brunch

Hello, welcome to hump day! Yay for Wednesdays! On the weekend the bf and I went shopping. His friend is visiting from the Bahamas next week and so we are going on a road trip in the South Island. I needed winter casual clothes as we'll be sightseeing, tramping and snowboarding - and I won't be able to get away with high heels ALL of the time!

It was a partly disappointing trip. Jeans just AREN'T my friend (well, my thighs aren't my friend but that's another story). I ended up buying more of the same style shirts and dresses that I normally wear, but I guess that's because they suit my shape.

I also bought this stripy loose lightweight jumper. And I really like it :)
Jumper, Glassons; Gilet, Tempt; Leggings, Glassons; Boots, Matalan; Handbag, Betsey Johnson

This is one of the latest additions to my Etsy shop and I am obsessed with them!!  (I will post clearer pics below!)

This is my beloved Betsey Johnson bag. Four years old and still going strong!!

And here are some pics of my new babies <3 They've been going down a treat! I am preparing for my first ever craft fair next month and so have been making plenty of pieces for my stall. I have several other designs which I need to photograph but will share with you in a day or two!!
