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.
I’ve missed a couple of weeks for Aussie Curves because I’ve been quite busy.
I started work again a few weeks ago, which has been making me feel exhausted while also robbing me of time. You get used to time being such a luxury while unemployed and then when you do start work again, your spare time is precious and you don’t necessarily use it well. Additionally, Man Piece and I have just bought a house (even though settlement isn’t until September), we’ve been preoccupied with sorting all that out.
But I thought it was high time that I dusted off this here blog again and contributed to the AC challenge once more.
This week’s theme is Leather – one which I am not short of options, albeit most of them pleather or wet-look. I decided to go for accessorising with leather items and keeping everything else subtle.
Items made of leather tend to be a lot more durable, so this week I decided to showcase my precious handbag as well as my boots which are fast becoming one of my best investments.
As it turns out, having your wardrobe spread out over three locations can be rather difficult and slightly deceptive at times. Currently I have clothes at my apartment – the ones I tend to wear most often – some stored at my parents place and even more stored at Man Piece’s parents’ place.
I thought I had this week down. I had planned to just take a few snaps of me in a casual outfit with my polka dot scarf I bought from Kikki K. No, why would life be that easy? Turns out said scarf is not located within my apartment currently and I’m not really sure where it is. Possibly in other two aforementioned locations.
I started to think I did not have anything else that had polka dots on it and I was very near sitting this week of Aussie Curves out, but, in a last ditch attempt, I went through every single piece of clothing which is currently resident of my apartment and I found a polka dot peplum top.
When I first set eyes on this dress at the City Chic Pitt St store opening it was love at first sight. It was perfect with it’s black and white kaleidoscope pattern, spikes on the shoulders and the vinyl. Oh the vinyl.
So when it came to choosing what to wear for Aussie Curves Body Con week, well, it was a no-brainer.
Isn’t it GORGEOUS?!
