Earthquakes, Aftershocks and New Hair...

Hi! I'm in New Zealand. Queenstown, to be more accurate. We flew over here to meet up with Garth's parents for their 30th wedding anniversary. The day before we left, Christchurch (the town we were flying into) was struck by a 7.4 earthquake. Awesome. But, we made it. See? (click to zoom...)

There's a really pretty walk that we do each time we go, along the lake into town.

Queenstown is a total bust when it comes to vintage/thrifting adventures, but I did find this nice skirt for $5 in an op shop in Dunedin.
And my Cheap Monday sunnies arrived in the mail just before we left. Excellent!

For fancy, I packed this dress. The long sleeves make it nice and warm. It's a Berkshire "In Between Size Casual" from the late 50's.

I attempted something different with my hair...
Which I think looked okay.

Back home and to work Monday!


  1. Your new skirt looks so nice, and those pictures are amazing! I am so in love with your dress too, and your perfect hairstyle!

  2. So pretty! I'm glad you and your family are safe and sound.

  3. I have to say, I LOVE your dimples. They're so cute. I wish mine were more prominent, I love dimples.
    I'm glad your family is safe! That's kind of scary.

  4. Absolutely LOVE the hair!

  5. I love the rounded corners of your photos. Is there an action for that, or do you do it yourself?


Thanks for your comments!
