Months ago Rose and I had the idea to do a weekly outfit post on the website, being a vintage clothing store we thought it would somewhat appropriate, but is only now that we finally have time to start putting the idea into motion.
So here it is our first weekly wardrobe post…
Today I had the afternoon off so my partner in crime and I decided to take a stroll out in East Auckland. One of my favorite walks is down to the Bucklands Beach Marina, you meander through the back of the suburb, through a series of reserves, along a a canal-esk feel walkway below the roads. It makes me completely forget we are in Auckland for awhile, which I love. My favorite thing by far however are the tunnels!

During the week I have to doll myself up quite a bit so I cherish the days when I can dress down and not put in so much effort. Don’t get me wrong though, I am a huge fan of dressing up to the nine’s but when you have to do it 6 out the 7 days in the week it is nice to have a day where you don’t have to put so much thought into it. There is one downfall with having an extensive wardrobe and that is having to stare at it for hours trying to deciding what to wear each morning.
This is one of my favorite dresses at the moment it combines so many things that I love – Peter Pan Collars, Demin and Babydoll cuts. Win, win, win. It also never gets ironed…
Recently I have got into the baby doll cut in a very big way. In fact I am slightly obsessed, which has been a big surprise to me. I have a very vintage body shape, I am slender on the top (size 6-8) and very curvy on the bottom (size 10-12) which means a lot of cuts can be very unflattering. In the past I have only worn items which emphasise my waist and take attention away from my lower body, which is the complete opposite of the baby doll cut. So don’t ask me why but I am allllll about the baby doll right now and am willing to sacrifice the potential to feel a bit frumpy. I’m guessing its because they are so incredibly comfortable, they make we want to run, jump and prance around in a field full of daises (I must remember to give that a try).
I gave the running and jumping a try. It was amazing.
