For some reason, when I first read the list of Aussie Curves challenges, I thought that this week's one was 'Favourite Place'... seemed an odd theme for an outfit challenge right? Yep. That's because it was really 'Favourite Piece'. Good thing I realised before Shooting this week's outfit. I thought I'd pay homage to my little dyslexic moment by including a little space in my backyard that I love to sit in with a cup of tea when I have a chance.
So my favourite piece? It's only a newbie, but I absolutely adore it! This longline jacket from City Chic made it into my wardrobe a few weeks ago. I saw it online and thought it was nice, but never thought I'd love it as much as I do, until I tried it on. Every time I wear this particular shade of blue, I get compliments... it makes my complexion 'pop'. There's also something about the longline cut that elongates and narrows my bust, waist and hips... Plus it has pockets!!! If City Chic bring this jacket out in other colours... my bank account will be in big trouble. *cough pink cough*
This corner of the yard is definitely one of the best spots in my home. The table and chairs are about 14 years old, and were really worn down by the weather. A few coats of brightly coloured spray paint and they were given a new lease on life! It really gives our rather unexciting backyard a bit of a fun element.
The sunnies need a mention... $5 from Equip! I've always been one to go for the big 'bug-eye' sunnies because they suited my face shape. I never even considered these round retro-style lenses as a look I could pull off. There you go... 7 years as a qualified stylist and still learning!
