Aussie Curves: Picnic

This week in Aussie Curves, our challenge theme is picnic. Before we get started, I have a confession. The photo below accurately sums up how I feel about picnics. The only nice thing I could think of about picnics was reading a book, but you know I could do that inside in the comfort of my bed. Picnics for me mean flies, mossies, ants, food that needs to be eaten on laps, etc. Yep, I'm an indoors person. Give me a good book to read inside, or a good gaming session any day.


Ok, now I've got that off my chest, here's my outfit. Picnic made me think of my tablecloth dress, that I wore for red week in this post. I needed to mix it up for a new post, so I decided to wear it as a skirt, paired with my Sweet Tooth shirt. My top is from this Etsy shop which has lots of other cute shirts and shoes too. I tucked the skirt under a bit to match the higher waist of the dress (and of me!). Usually it's longer, as you can see in my previous post here.


I wore my comfy red shoes, which seemed a sensible choice for a picnic. Lots of ants and grass and stuff to get in your sandal type shoes, I would think.


My accessories included my strawberry clips from The Olive Tree Markets, earrings from a random market, and a bunch of bracelets- pearl ones were 50c from an op shop, red one is part of a set from Yours Clothing. Apologies for puffy eyes, I was staying at my parents for these photos and they are hayfever central.

  1. For someone who doesn't like a picnic, you look super ready to enjoy a great time. Not that first photo though, that does not LOL. Awesome way to restyle a previous worn dress. Well done! Love it.

  2. I would never have known that was a dress...great idea popping a t-shirt over the top to get more wear out of it. Loving the red and turquoise together!

  4. Very cute. I think this look would have been super cute with a white blouse, to make it 'extreme girly picnic', but your look is very comfortable. Love it.
