OOTD: Horses and Paris

There is something awesome about a mini-skirt. I always feel flirty and super girly in them. It might also be that its a total flaunting disregard for all the stupid 'rules' about what fat girls should wear and that feels pretty fabulous too.

Skirt: eShakti
Top: Forever 21+
Flats: Rubi
Clutch: Thrifted
Necklace: Colette 

Ben and I went out with some friends on Saturday night for dinner and drinks. The temperature is just at that in between stage, cool enough for stockings, but warm enough to have bare arms. This is my favourite time of year.

I love the way the sequins catch the light and play off the red flats. Even though they are juts plain, the colour is so bright they always feel like ruby slippers.

The necklace I picked up in the Colette sales. For $8.50 with 50% off all jewelry, I couldn't resist! The cord with metal details is so easy to wear, I've already styled it into several outfits. It just seems to go with everything! Its easy to buy too much dress jewelry (I'm a definite victim of sale-spontaneity) but I'm trying to pick pieces like this I will get more wear out of. 

Seriously though. How adorable is the skirt. I love that eShakti is fully customizable, this was originally a past the knee length, but I knew it would be too cute as a mini! The moment I slipped it on I loved it. From the funky print to the metal look buttons, it was perfect. Funnily enough, it was one of those pieces that got lost in my wardrobe. Its just been rediscovered and rotated to the front!

What do you wear in between seasons?

OOTD: Harem

I've never been into harem pants. Before these, I had one pair that I wore out once and then they were negated to house pants only. I love how comfy they are, but I have a big butt and hips which I'm not going to lie- I normally like to compliment with dress and skirts. Funny thing is though, I saw this top and pants combo in the City Chic window display and knew I had to have it. I went in, tried them on and bought them on the spot!

Top and pants: City Chic
Shoes: Target
Clutch: ASOS
Ring: Preeetttyy sure its from Diva

I had to stop myself from taking instagram outfit photos on the night and giving this post away, I was so happy with how this outfit ended up coming together. And I felt like I was in my PJs all night long! I love the elasticated band around the waist though, even though you've got all this billowing material, it nips in at the waist and around the calves. 

These shoes have been on high rotation at the moment. They are the perfect height without making me tower and I can go the distance in them all night. Plus they seem to look good with anything, may as well wear them while I'm into them!

What do you think of the harem pant style??

Aussie Curves: Active Wear

Okay. So I guess I've essentially cheated with this weeks Aussie Curves. I'm definitely taking the theme to the edges of its meaning but the funny thing about active wear, is that although I have tights and comfy tees I wear while working up a sweat- more often than not, I end up hitting the pavement in my everyday clothes.

Top: Forever 21+
Jeans: Torrid
Jacket: Crossroads
Thongs: Crocs

On this particular day, I'd come home from the shops to a raucously excited puppy! Seeing her joyful little furry self bouncing up and down just makes me melt. That and this unbelievable choc-chip-cookie stare she does as I take me shoes off near where her walking lead hangs. So I sigh and put my shoes back on, grab her harness and ball and head back out the door with her gleefully taking the lead. This means I end up hitting the park in whatever I happen to be wearing before. Now, if it's something swishy, long, cotoure or ridiculous then I'll change- but if it's jeans and a top or a leggings and a tunic getup, I'm out the door without hesitation. 

I think the most important thing is that you want to be comfortable and have good range of movement. I've found myself wearing jeans a lot lately. Which is funny- because before blogging I was never a jeans wearer. I think that finding my perfect pair has definitely changed my jeans opinion- Torrid really do make the BEST jeans! Plus, Neo likes it when I wear them because she doesn't have to wait for me to change before we go for a walk! ;)

As you can see from these piccys, Neo cannot get enough of the park. From the minute we step out the door until her final collapse on the couch when we get home- she gives it all her energy! I love throwing the ball around for her and running her through the agility obstacles. Sometimes it's the little things like this that make for the best afternoons. 

Does your pet love the park?
