Aussie Curves- Leather

The only leather item I own are boots. I thought I'd show off my new Autograph winter skirt while I was at it. The skirt is a soft warm knit, and I love the red. Very comfy- I got it on sale when it first came out. The top is from Best and Less that I picked up in the holidays. I thought I could do with a cheap black top, and I liked the studded detail on the shoulders. The boots are from Autograph- from the first time they brought footwear into the store. I was so excited to find boots to fit my calves, and that went up to my size 11. I've had them a few years now and they're still going well.

Unicorns and Galaxies

Finally, I manage an outfit post that isn't Aussie Curves! The weather got chilly enough to try out my galaxy print leggings from Domino Dollhouse. I thought an equally bright shirt needed to happen, and here we are.

My unicorn top is from an Etsy shop called Em and Sprout. Their 2x isn't quite big enough, it's a bit tight over my boobs and shoulders, but they don't go any higher in size, and I really wanted it. The print is so cute, and I've started liking pink things.

I got a 3x in the leggings but I think I went too big. They fit fine on my legs, but they are a bit loose around my hips. The leggings are a low cut, they come up to under my belly button. They are riding down a bit when I wear them, 'cos of the loose fit and low cut. I still love them though.

Had to show you a close up of my earrings, they are the cutest little strawberries. I got them half price from Big W.

Aussie Curves- Timesaver

Today's theme is timesaver. I'm usually dressing quickly in the morning before heading out the door with the kids to do the school run, so I appreciate outfits I don't have to think about. This gorgeous dress from Domino Dollhouse is one of those. Dress, bike pants, sandals- bam all dressed. If I have more time I'll add some accessories and some lippie. Dresses are a favourite of mine for time saving dressing. You don't need to coordinate tops and bottoms, and if it's cold just add some tights/leggings and a coat. Easy!

The necklace (which kept sliding around in the photos) is from Domino Dollhouse too. The dress and necklace were part of their last season's range, Astralnauts. The dress is comfy, looks great and has stood up to repeated washes quite well. 

Any tips for not squinting when it's bright outside? I waited until an overcast day to take the photos but it still was glarey. Need more shade in my backyard I think!

Had to show you my earrings too- keeping on with the star theme of my dress.

Aussie Curves- Heels

For the heels challenge, I only had one pair to show you- my wedges. I'm a flats girl, sandals and sneakers are my main shoes. I have a flat foot, and wearing heels causes me lots of pain. Plus I tend to turn my ankle. Anyway, I bought these wedges from Big W last year, 'cos they were so pretty and they didn't feel too painful. I have to yet to wear them out of the house though, let alone long periods.

I'm pairing the heels with my lace dress from Asos Curve. I love the colour and style, but it's too short for me to feel comfortable (short dresses always ride up my bum!) so I'll be wearing it with leggings most of the time. I like the contrast between the light shoes and dark dress.

I added a light coloured belt and my pink necklace and earrings to tie in to the creamy shoes. I happened to have a hair flower that exactly matches the colour of my dress- scored for half price at Big W (all their accessories are currently half price if you're interested).
