Wow, you guys really loved last week’s theme “Tribal”, I was totally blown away by the response. This week’s theme is “Stripes” and would you believe I didn’t pack a single striped garment when I went to Hayman! Such a beautiful place for photos and I had nothing to wear! Tragic I know but this afternoon Steve came home a bit early and took these pics for me so I could catch up with the rest of the crew. Seriously if I don’t have my Aussie Curves post up on on a Monday morning I feel like I’m running on a treadmill all week until I do… I hate playing catch up.

It’s not that I don’t like stripes, I do, I just don’t seem to own many striped items. I know that Suger’s jaw has dropped right now (she’s devoting the entire week to stripy outfits!) but they’re just not my thing, I’m a floral girl. I’m not afraid of mixing things up though, this is my go-to top to break up a bold outfit. It’s silky synthetic fabric makes it feel dressy so it’s great under a blazer, teamed with a pencil skirt or a pair of well-fitted pants. I know a lot of people don’t like these banded tops (shirred waists) but I think they’re brilliant, especially on bloated days!
The wedges were a recent gift from Target, not something I’d necessarily go for but they’re a bit funky and I’m open to trying new things, I think they worked well. The bonus with these shoes is that because they’re lace ups, you can customise the fit. Wedges are always super comfy to me. I liked the platform, giving me height but keeping me stable. My pedicure looks pretty cute in them too. Oh and are you wondering why I rolled up my jeans ever so slightly? Well, it’s the “in” thing to do for spring: bare those ankles, elongate those legs and show off those super cute shoes… personally I’m a fan.
