Spin the Pin – May

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.

Outfit details:

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.

Boots: Ziera

Beanie: Cotton On

Necklace: Catch Coeur jewellery from the Rocks markets in Sydney.

Handbag: Nica from Farmers.

Aussie Curves – Night Out

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…

Short and sweet. Done.

Aussie Curves – Hipster

My wardrobe is kind of a mix of styles, but mostly I like to associate with the punk, rock, chic style. So when it came to Hipster week for Aussie Curves, I thought I was good.

Then I got stuck for ideas.

I took to Pinterest and searched for Hipster. Most of the results were pantyhose with short shorts, flannelette shirts and boots. But what also popped up were a lot of cute cuddly jumpers. I had just the thing.

Aussie Curves – Pattern Clash

It has been a long time since I did an Aussie Curves post, but I’m back!

This week’s theme is Pattern Clash. I don’t tend to own a lot of patterns. I shy away from them as I see them as too ‘out there’ for me, most of the time. If I do buy patterns, it is because they are fairly subtle, or are within the stripes/polka dots style of pattern, nothing too major.

Now, pattern clashing is meant to be a huge trend this winter. And one tip I have picked up is that the best way to clash is to keep with the same colour palette.
