My good friend Sarah’s family home sits somewhere out of Auckland in Dairy Flat. I’ve known this the whole time I’ve known her, but only recently have I had the pleasure of visiting their amazing property. And when I say amazing, I mean amazing. I don’t think I know anyone with such lovely grounds. It’s like they live in some kind of movie. The gardens are manicured, there’s a pond with a jetty, large open green spaces of field and even sheep. There’s also a fantastic pool. It’s probably my favourite pool in Auckland (first equal with the rooftop pool at the Langham Hotel).
A couple of weekends ago I decided that it would be a nice place to take pictures, and so one sunny afternoon a few of us took a little road trip to what we affectionately have named, ‘The D Flat’, and I took some of my favourite pieces from the new Winter 2013 Twenty-Seven Names collection with me.
Here’s how it went down:
The shorts in the below shot also come in red and a dusky pink and they feel amazing. Trust me:
Yes, I am holding a cupcake.
THUG LIFE THO.
This collection just started dropping in stores and online this week, so if you’re thinking of getting your hands on any of it, now’s the time!
Note: There’s actually a whole lot more of the collection I wanted to shoot but I had to narrow it down because it was getting to be overkill – keep an eye out for the full lookbook, coming soon.
Big thanks to the Theobalds for their hospitality and putting up with us running around their garden!
PS: The lipstick I’m wearing is ‘Ronnie Red’ – a new one from MAC’s ‘Archie’s Girls’ collection which is in stores now.
