I have a really big secret love for turtlenecks. Call them grandma sweaters, or what ever you want, but I think they're so cosy-looking and on point. And with hair tucked into a chunky oversized knit, it's super on point. (I was going to tuck my hair in, but then I looked like I was 12, so maybe not.)
I bought these sneakers when I was roaming around Queen Street in Auckland, at the end of the last holidays, and they caught my eye straight away. I'd been looking for some comfy, minimal sneakers and these were it.
I suspected sneakers would come back after Chanel's last Couture collection was released in Spring. I was really happy that Karl brought in another wave of sneakers, mixing their street-feel with Couture - it really worked.
Hope you all had a good long weekend!

Hello, sorry for the extremely long break from blogging. Essays and maths are lame, and take up way too much of my time.
Anyway, since we have a long weekend this week, I decided to get my paints out and give the blog a bit of a makeover, and retouched a few things. There's still some things to do on the template, but I'll save that for another day.
I also made a new Facebook page for Floralled too, which is kinda confusing for me at the moment, but I'd really appreciate it if you went over and gave it a like here. My twitter is also back into action and I'm about to start posting on it again, so if you want to keep updated on posts, it's right here too.
And the last news is (!!!!!) I got a new DSLR camera! Most of my savings are gone (oops) but it was worth every cent, and now I can take the type of photos that I want in my posts. The camera I was using previously was at least 10 years old, so you can imagine it was getting frustrating to use. Only a quarter of the shoots I took actually made it onto my blog, due to the others being grainy or blurry. It was quite good for macro shots, but that was it.
I can't wait to shoot some editorials and other stuff with my camera to put on here, so hopefully I'll be busy with that in the next month.
Have a nice week!
