Aussie Curves: Celebrate

I hadn't planned to play along in this week's Aussie Curves, but as it turned out we did do some extra special celebrating on Sunday night! It was my little brothers birthday and the family all met out in town for dinner at our favourite restaurant The Morrison (f you happen to be in Brisbane you have to check it out, ammazzzziinng steaks!!). Once you add up Mum and Dad, the four kids and our partners- its almost always someone's birthday!

Blake was lucky enough to have three birthday cakes- two Cheesecake shop beauties and the most amazing white chocolate and passion fruit cheesecake! Omnomnomnom! I could have eaten the whole thing! He was also extremely spoilt by his girlfriend Ally, she covered the couch in his presents!

Peplum: City Chic
Jeans: Torrid
Flats: Payless
Jacket: Lilly and Lou
Clutch: Target
Robot necklace: Diva

I dressed more for comfort than fashion, but I think it's nice to sometimes show the 'everyday' outfits rather than the flashy, dressed up ones. On that note you've probably noticed on IG that I've been living in this jacket. Its so cute and comfy and matched everything, I love how bold and fresh it makes the otherwise pretty simple outfit look. 

The robot necklace is a funky old favourite. I can't actually remember where I got it from, but Ben is pretty sure its from Diva. Fashion jewellery has come so far in the last few years, there are lots of those cheap and fantastic accessory shops now, so many in fact that I often forget where I get some of my pieces from! It makes it so easy to add oomph to an outfit when you know you can buy a piece like this for $8! Sure its not a last forever, mindblowing piece, but its cute and makes me smile when I wear it. So I think that is a well spent eight bucks!

What do you wear for casual celebrations??
