Aussie Curves: Leggings

I'm looking forward to Mondays, I get to do an Aussie Curves challenge!
This week is leggings. Leggings are a vital part of my winter wardrobe. I don't have any bright prints or crazy patterns yet, but I do have a bunch of coloured ones from Autograph. I'm wearing the purple/berry colour today.


I'm inbetween the M and L size in leggings at Autograph. I get the M so they don't get too baggy- the stitching tends to get wrecked around the waistband over time though. The tunic top is also from Autograph- I love the swirly colours and the pockets.


The long sleeve top is a cheapie from Big W and just happens to match my leggings.


These new shoes are a big deal for me- they actually have a bit of a heel. I like the flowers on them, and the colour should go with lots of stuff. The lining is leather, which is a bargain considering they were $25 from Big W.

To be totally honest, I only wore them for the photos- I still feel too wobbly on them to wear them out. But I'm going to practice. The way the heel is raised, they feel more like high flats than heels. There doesn't seem to be too much pressure on the front of foot- but we'll see.



Love my new hair flower from Target. I tried out some Sally Hansen nail strips today, you can see the results below. They took about the same amount of time to put on as painting my nails. I love the hippy pattern, it will be interesting to see how long they last. I put Opi Chip Skip underneath, and Sally Hansen Diamond Top Coat over the top.

  14. Wow girls thanks for all the positive comments! I'm a big fan of purple, especially this grape colour. My kindle cover and my wallet are the same colour too. :-)

    @LisaW: a shame your local Autograph aren't stocking them- but you could try online?

    @Natalie- yeah the nail wraps are great- they lasted a wk which is great for me, I got them from the local chemist.

  15. You are dressed very well,i must say that you know how to carry yourself.Leggings are looking good on you.Because of their wearability, leggings have remained a staple in many girls’ wardrobes for numerous seasons. They’re easy to pull on, look cute, and are perfect pieces for layering.

  16. I'm catching up on my reading - and YES! I have the same problem with Autograph leggings, I'm smack dab between an M and an L. Exactly the same thing happens to me - the L are too baggy and wrinkly, the M tear up at the waistband.

    Loving the purple on you BTW.
