Colour each day!

Clouds of Colour - Headscarf-2-Diamonds Clouds of Colour - Headscarf-3-Diamonds Clouds of Colour - Headscarf-10-Moth

Colour each day! With a headscarf, sunnies and your faaaavourite jewls!
So SO excited to finally share the release of my beautiful headscarf range.
Months and months of hard work has paid off!
I illustrated these designs using my signature watercolour and inkpen combo, had them printed overseas and lovingly sewn in little Nelson, NZ.
The best part about the fabric I have used – a linen / cotton mix – is that they don’t slip off your head during the day. So many silk scarves do! And although I love the feel of a silk scarf, these really do sit perfectly.

Juuust incase you’re on the lookout for new sunnies – I found these beauties here. They have been the perfect addition to my ever growing collection & the best accessory for Summer – & the start of Autumn!

Headscarves are available at Little Beehive Co-Op, Nelson OR online here.
I can’t wait to see all your headscarf snaps!

The Cats Table

Trouble & Fox Fashion Show - Nelson 5Trouble & Fox Fashion Show - Nelson 3

On Thursday night I attended ‘The Cats Table’ at Deville in Nelson. It’s was a very cool and edgy fashion show by Trouble & Fox, Sidecar and Kohl & Cochineal – showcasing some of their current designs.
Trouble & Fox and Sidecar are locally owned and run boutiques in Nelson. Both are full of an eclectic mix of handpicked clothing and accessories. It is so so amazing to have stores like this in Nelson – unique, quirky & fun. I absolutely loooove the interiors of these stores too. My fave feature being upside lamps hanging above the counter at Trouble & Fox! Very clever.
Kohl & Cochineal is a Nelson based label designing & creating seriously cool & classic handbags. Each piece is locally made – which I love!
I also loved the way the models were dressed to show off these fab pieces.

Commando M

Commando M shoes poppy 6

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a DIY with these Commando M shoes! Commando M was a big hit in the 80’s and is now back 30 something years later. I am so excited to be one of the kiwi bloggers they picked to send a pair to and customise in my own special way! So here is what I did…

Firstly I penciled on my poppy drawings. Using fabric paint, I painted the red onto the shoes and left to dry. Some spots were definitely more difficult than others! I wanted the overall style to look hand drawn so left little areas of white. I then used a black permanent marker to outline the poppies and give them some form by shading.

Voila! All done. I also had fun with the laces and working out different ways they could be laced. Make sure you check out the Commando M Facebook page for other style ideas and to grab your own pair!

Arlo and I are loving our first summer back in New Zealand. With regular beach trips, BBQ’s, outdoor movies, berries, flowing skirts, art inspiration and plenty of picnics. One accessory I always LOVE to have is sunglasses (I’m actually a bit of a collector- the bigger the better!). I recently got these Vogue sunnies from Sunglasses Shop and because of how much I ADORE them I had to share a few snaps. Sunglasses Shop has the best range of sunglasses with designer to sport brands. They deliver all over the world and the customer service is amazing. I received mine in a week! You can check out more about them here. I think next on my list might have to be these! Eeee amazing.
These photos were taken at Broadgreen Rose Garden where Arlo and I love to go just to chill out and smell the roses.
What is your must-have for summer?xobec
