Turquoise & Mauve

My 7 year old took the photos for today's outfit- I think he did a better job than my self-timing efforts. I'm finding it so hard to take photos of myself, maybe I'll make Mr 7 my regular photographer! ;-)

Today's photos are taken in our front sunroom/playroom. My wonderful Dad made shadecloth windows and mounted them to make our front verandah insect-free.

Top half is all from Big W today. Big W have brought out a new plus-size brand Avella and there are some decent pieces in there. My black top and short sleeve cardy are both Avella. They're both made of a lovely soft cotton which is great in this humid weather. I needed to go up to a size 26 in the black top to make it fit right around my hips, so fitting and shape is something they need to work on. 

Once again I'm wearing my trusty Autograph denim shorts- I went back and bought another pair once I realised how much of a staple they would be. I always take my shoes off when I get home, but I was wearing my turquoise sneakers seen in this post here.

Earrings and necklace are from Kmart, I bought them to go with my aqua dress from the wedding post. My little owl brooch is from my local artisan markets.

  1. I really like those shorts! I'm not a big shorts wearer, I got a pair for Christmas that I wear, but I may have to duck into Autograph and look at the ones you have. They look great on!

  2. Thanks! I bought a size 22 which is slighter smaller than I usually wear, but I found the denim stretched after a day of wearing & the 24s were too big. They're on special on the website atm, but no big sizes left. Good luck. :-)
