Aussie Curves- Yellow

This week's Aussie Curves challenge is yellow. I had stayed away from yellow before joining Aussie Curves, now I'm so glad I tried it out. Yellow is such a fun cheery colour. I picked up this cardigan at the op shop, and decided to use it for the challenge. The cardigan is too small to button up, but as I tend to wear a lot of cardigans unbuttoned, I got it anyway. The shoulders and arms fit, so we're all good.

The dress is a swing dress from Asos Curve, I wore it unbelted for the "vulnerable side" challenge (here). This is how I usually wear it- belted in.

My earrings are from Coles, the badges from the op shop and Blackbird's Corner.

Now that my son is all better and home from hospital, I'm looking forward to catching up on Aussie Curves challenges. I have black and white ready to go, so you should see it here next week.

Orange is the New Neutral

Hi everyone, just posting a quick outfit that I took weeks ago, to reassure you that I'm still here. My six year old has been in hospital with pneumonia, and I've been sleeping there with him, so I haven't been able to do any outfit posts. My son is all better now, I feel like I'm still recovering and trying to get my head around the usual routines. I will get back to more regular outfits though, I promise. 

This dress has become a favourite, I picked it up at Big W. It doesn't crease or wrinkle, and it's very comfortable to wear. I have nicknamed it my conservative dress, since I seem to end up wearing it to appointments, and the navy blue is subdued for me. 

My orange cardigan is also from Big W. I'm starting to amass a small collection of them. I have found that for me, orange is a neutral, as it goes with so many of my outfits. It's a little longer than I like my cardigans, but the colour is great.

I love how my shoes carry on the navy matchy theme. My hair clip was sent to me from my lovely internet friend, Kath. It goes great with my orange things.
