A few days ago I saw Maddy had posted some of her favourite looks from Madewell‘s Fall collection, which is dropping sometime in August/September. What I saw was pretty cute but it wasn’t until just now that I looked at the full lookbook and realised that I would wear two thirds of it, no exaggeration. It’s that good. Or at least I’d like to be able to wear two thirds of it. Madewell doesn’t ship to New Zealand, and bar a trip to New York (which I am working on, but you know – one must make and keep a decent amount of money in order to be able to afford plane tickets and the like), it’s not likely that I’ll be getting my hands on any of it.
But a girl can dream, right? Here are my favourite looks from the lot.

I am not much for Winter. Hot chocolates by the fire and sleeping in while it thunderstorms outside are fine but won’t sway me – Summer still reigns supreme in my books. With that being said, you can probably gather exactly how I’ve been feeling this past couple of weeks of ‘late Autumn’. The cold is the worst, the rain coming a close second. I’ve always had a thing against umbrellas, since I was really young. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but I would rather shield my eyes with my hands and run across the road in the rain than unleash one of those eyeball-poking death traps. (Side note: This actually happens. Maddy got poked in the eye by a strangers umbrella about a month ago and the stranger didn’t even say sorry. The end.)
So you can see why raincoats are appealing to me. They get you where you need to go in wet weather, keep you dry, and don’t require being held over you. They’re also kind of cute in a Paddington Bear kind of way. I’ve done a bit of research, and these three are a few of the least-offensive waterproof pieces of outerwear I could find:

IT’S A WHILE SINCE WE’VE DONE ONE OF THESE HUH. Anyway, I have a few things I’ve come across recently that I feel like sharing:
- Barkers has collaborated with iconic New Zealand heritage brand, Swanndri for their 100 year anniversary, to create a 12 style capsule collection that went in to store last week. My favourite thing? The above dark green bag. Perfect as carry-on luggage methinks. Also, the scarves. They’re 100% wool and there’s a dark green check one which is great for Winter.
