The lovely Jo from iCurvy has created a new blogging challenge which I thought I would have a go at.
It is called Spin the Pin and each month Jo will choose an outfit from Pinterest where we take inspiration from it to create an outfit of our own. It sounded like such a cool idea, so here I am.
May’s outfit was to take inspiration from this pin:
I thought of a couple of ideas, but ultimately I landed on this:
I took inspiration from the trench coat and the loose, chic layering of the outfit. I even attempted to keep a somewhat monochromatic palette.
Trench: I recently picked this up in the City Chic sale. It is the Caramel Kisses Trench and I have fallen in love with it.
Top: This is the New Look Inspire Longline Turn Back Tee I recently got from ASOS. It offers a relaxed, chic look and would be great with leggings or jeans, as I’m wearing here.
Jeans: Zip Me Skinnies in blue from City Chic.
Scarf: Another recent purchase from Ruby Shoes.
Beanie: Cotton On
Necklace: Catch Coeur jewellery from the Rocks markets in Sydney.
Handbag: Nica from Farmers.

Hi! I’m still alive. Kind of.
I haven’t been feeling that great about what I have been wearing or what I look like lately. So mostly I’ve just been avoiding it all and wearing/doing the bare basics.
Which means I have not been feeling inspired to do any Aussie Curves posts or outfits (even just to an Instagram fall-back). I’m not really sure why either, just feeling blah about it all.
But today I am going to attempt a short and sweet post for Night Out.
A happy coincidence meant that Man Piece and I actually did have a night out this week to Empire, which is currently showing in Wellington. (It’s like the circus meets burlesque, with a whole heap of funny thrown in there. Definitely worth going to.)
We had a bit of food at Mac’s Brewbar…
Then indulged in a bit of a show…
(All the sticks are balanced carefully on his head.)
And I managed to get Man Piece to get a picture of my outfit…
Cardigan: City Chic
Necklace: Not sure where from, but was picked up in Rome by the MIL

Short and sweet. Done.

I had great plans for this week, but alas, life got in the way and I failed the goal I had set myself.
The idea for this week was that I was going to wear what I normally wear to work and just make sure I got an outfit photo everyday. The aim being at the end of five days I would have successfully posted a photo on Instagram every day and I would have five photos to make up the post for this week’s Aussie Curves challenge.
I managed two. Two out of five. Utter fail much?
My everyday style is quite simple. Usually it revolves around jeans and a top of some kind. Lately I have been rocking the singlet and jumper combo. Wellington has decided to turn on the cold finally (just when Spring is approaching!)
So another year of Aussie Curves begins!
The only denim items in my wardrobe are many pairs of jeans, so when it came to deciding what to wear my decision was pretty much made for me.
But of course if I was just going to wear jeans, they were going to be the best pair of jeans I own – a pair of City Chic’s TDFs.
Spike is the Aussie Curves theme this week and I definitely do not have a shortage of clothing with spikes on.
I could have gone with my Kaleidoscope dress as it has spikes on the shoulders, but I used that for Bodycon week. I could have worn my leopard top, as that too has spikes on the shoulders, but, once again, I had already used that for Time Saver. I sure do like clothing with spikes.
So there I was, scratching my head, wondering what else did I have? When I finally remembered the cardigan I have with spikes on the shoulder. City Chic really does like putting spikes on its clothing, huh? And I can’t help but buy them.
