Sometimes it's still really hard for me to be disciplined and work inside on such a beautiful day like today, especially when my mind is somewhere else. It seems the weight of the past few weeks really caught up with me today and all of a sudden i was feeling a little disheartened. I'm not entirely sure what brought it on but when you put absolutely everything you have into something you love it's only natural to have days like this. I'm sure you all have days like this too. I hope so anyway!

I drive past this gorgeous white picket fence every day and always think to myself how much i would love to shoot photos there. It's literally overflowing with gorgeous pink roses at the moment so i thought it would be the perfect way to spend my afternoon, to which Luke happily agreed. It was lovely having the warmth on my skin and be able to clear my head again. And how could one feel down when you're surrounded by romantic roses with the one you love?

This outfit was actually inspired entirely by these roses - i even painted my nails the same pastel pink colour!? I love never planning what i'm going to wear and having my outfit just come together naturally. It's so much more fun that way and you always end up putting together an outfit you would never have thought of in the first place. Here you can tell i was feeling extremely feminine with a peter pan collar, crochet, soft pastels and a matching headband. My Miu Miu's always make me feel a thousand times better too.

PS. I'll be guest blogging for my wonderful friend Amanda from Here Comes the Sun over the weekend while she's in Wellington. I've been busy shooting some photos around my office so be sure to head over to her blog to get a behind the scenes look into my world.

Well, more so than you already do. You know what i mean :)

  8. your freckles are so cute! couldn't really spot them in all your other photos. This rose bush fence is heavenly. I totally agree about not planning your outfit until the very last "in the heat" moment when you actually need to get dressed and ready. Things just come together unexpectedly and the lightbulb in your head goes "ting ting"!!

    lovely photos as always,
