'Walk'n'Roll top' c/o Modcloth, Dotti jacket, F21 pants, ASOS duffle bag, Topshop boots

The transitional weather has been really hard to dress for recently. The morning usually starts out clear and sunny before I leave the house so I (mistakenly) dress accordingly for the day, and end up looking completely inappropriate by the time lunchtime rolls around and temperatures plunge + it starts hailing randomly. Such is the joy of spring in Auckland. I'm dying for summer to arrive so I can get out the slouchy tanks, super sheer tees, denim cutoffs and dresses again!

This imitation Rocco from ASOS obviously ain't got nuthin' on the real Wang, but for $20, kinda just too tempting to pass up.

That bag is 100% perfect. I love the leather leggings, too.

Over here we're in transitional weather between nasty summer and fall. It's been going in between hot and cold at the end of August and it was very, very cool last week and now it's hot, sticky and humid.

I really, really love this look.

It's a good transitional look.

Mae Lu, thereafterish.
