This week I had grand plans to put together my outfit for Aussie Curves – Job Interview early and get it all blogged and done before Friday.
But the best laid plans and all…
Sure, I had put it off for a couple of days because I hadn’t quite figured out the entire outfit, but I was getting there. Thursday was going to be the day.
Then in the early hours of Thursday morning I had a rather rude awakening in the form of my dinner deciding to come back up (gross). I won’t go into any other details, but two days off work and four days later after a diet of not very much, I’m still not feeling that great. But I am getting better.
Which is why, at the last hour, I have come to write my Job Interview post for Aussie Curves.
Last night I spent a few hours going through multitudes of photos sorting them into various folders to try and find a couple of photos of my outfits from when I was actually interviewing for jobs a few months ago. Lucky for you, I found them.
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.
This week was my first week back at work, so I haven’t had too much time to even think about how Nature could be incorporated into Fashion for Aussie Curves.
But as Man Piece and I were out for our walk around the waterfront today, I realised that my ducky jacket, as it is now known, could definitely be within the definition of nature.
So on our way back, I got Man Piece to snap a couple of pictures.
Plus there was some nice trees around to use as the backdrop.
There were even real ducks right by where we stopped!
Hopefully I will be a bit more organised this coming week and make sure I get some photos earlier in the week.

I was sitting in my hot, humid Sydney apartment a few months ago just cruising the internet when I got an email.
It was a marketing email from Ezibuy offering 20% off until midnight. I don’t even really know why I opened it. I hadn’t really opened an Ezibuy email in about 18 months, around the same time I had last looked at the website and what they were selling. I used to own a lot of clothes from Ezibuy, but when I moved to Australia, I guess I kind of just went off them.
So I decided to peruse the website to see what they had to offer in plus size brands. I was quite impressed. There were definitely a few things that I liked, but nothing that really shouted ‘BUY ME NOW’. Until I came across the Sara Spray Jacket in Black Duck.
I HAD TO HAVE IT.
