I don’t own polka dot stuff anymore. I went through a phase a few years ago prior to Aidan, my true love is florals. I had to borrow a stock item I used in a photo shoot to be able to participate this week. It’s a tankini top but because the support is so good I can wear it like a top without a bra, love that! Polka dots scream “RETRO” to me so I knew I’d have to wear these funky sunglasses Suger gave me a few months ago. Once I had the two items I built the rest of the outfit around them. I tried not to think to much, to just throw something together. I’m a terrible over-thinker so it was nice to wing it.
When I put the glasses on and knew I wanted long locks. I whipped out my extensions, whacked them on top of my head, parted it and put one of my vintage thrift scarves on. I keep looking at the pictures and thinking… is that me?? I look so different.

I feel like I should be sipping a corona and heading to a balmy evening BBQ by a pool in this outfit. I feel so funky and girly. The skirt is short, it always has been. I’ve had it forever but only wear it when I’m wearing swimmers, I don’t wear shorts when swimming so I like having something I can easily slip on and off.
I’m so glad Steve came home today after being overseas with work for a week, I missed him like crazy. Just like we do every Sunday afternoon I pranced around for him and he made me laugh. Tripods can not make you laugh. Steve’s not really involved in the blog at all but I love that he’s slowly “getting” what I’m trying to do, that Aussie Curves has become “a thing” and he’s willing to help out where he can.
As for polka dots, I’m not really sure they’re for me but they’re definitely fun to try once and awhile. The tankini is moving into my wardrobe, I highly recommend it, especially if you’re busty and need some extra support. Want to see more plus size swimwear pieces? Well I’ve been working on a project for the past two months and hopefully it will be live in the next week or so. I want it to be perfectly perfect before I show you. You’ll love it I promise!
