The Week That Was - Week 3

And another week has flown by!

Day 1{Saturday} - This is one of my go to outfits.  The ponte pants are so comfy.  Technically they're leggings but because they are thick material I feel comfortable wearing them as pants.  I love the Tunic but I am a bit dissapointed in the quality of the fabric as it has faded and pilled a fair bit, which means I tend to only wear this top around home.  You'll note the lack of shoes on my feet, I was home all day writing essays!

Day 2 {Sunday} - We had a family day out at our local communities 'fiesta' and I wore this.  I was feeling prett bloated and I decided at the end of the day that I don't like how this top sits on me.  I think when I wear skirts, I really need to wear shorter tops.

Day 3 {Monday} - My new contact lenses arrived - so it's contact season.  I tend to wear contact lenses in summer so I can wear cheap sunglasses and go swimming.  This wrap top is a few years old.  It makes me feel good when I wear it, but now looking at this photo I think it looks dated and out of style.  In fact, I think this whole outfit looks a bit dated and makes me look closer to 40 than I actually am!

Day 4 {Tuesday}  - I last wore this on day 7 (week 1) but this time I added a really light weight cardigan which I think makes my top half look better. Im also without leggings... can't remember the last time I wore a skirt !

Day 5 {Wednesday}  - I wore this top and scarfe in week 1 with a skirt and I decided that I didn't like the combination.  Toda I wore it with blue skinny pants and a denim vest.  I think my legs look longer and the vest is doing a good job at hiding my huge boobies.

Day 6 {Thursday} - So after realising that I can't wear long tops with skirts I decided to try a shorter top, in fact I even tucked the top in (something I have NEVER done before).

Day 7: {Friday} At home all day and only put shoes on for the photo!

Aussie Curves - Knits

This week the Aussie Curves Photo Challenge theme is Knits!

I have only recently discovered knits and it has opened a whole world of fashion possibilities for me!  In the past I wouldn't even consider a sleeveless top but now I will wear on, provided I have a fantastic cardigan to cover up with.  I actually had trouble decided which of my knits to wear for the photo challenge and in the end I decided to wear an 'evening' outfit.  It's something that I would wear on a girls night out.

A Conflict of Interest

This blog is essentially a weight loss blog, even though I am not actually losing weight at the moment.  Technically I am 'maintaining' but with all of the Essays and study that I have been doing I suspect that I have actually gained weight this week.

I must admit that while I have been embracing fashion for the last few weeks that I have, on several occasions wondered if I do need to lose weight.  I guess Fat Girl still has a voice after all.  She is trying to tell me that I will be happy just enjoying fashion.

I had a reminder today that I do need to lose weight.  There was a street 'fiesta' in my suburb today and we walked there and spent 4 hours just wondering around enjoying the day before walking home.

This was my view for most of the day...

The truth is I just couldn't keep up the pace.

I need to actively start losing weight again soon.

The Week That Was - Week 2

Day 1 - I'm not sure that I like this combination, I think it's an older look. 
Next time I think I will try a denim jacket with it.

Day 2 - Clearly I didn't leave the house!  No Shoes!  I love those black pants.  They are black yoga pants. 
 I remember watching Oprah a few years ago and she was talking about how fantastic yoga pants are because they are comfortable like tracksuit pants but not so daggy looking. 
I only bought these a few months ago and wish I got them years ago! 
The red top is an old favourite of mine but it's too piled to wear out in public.

Day 3 - Another day at home but had to duck into the shops to get milk so chucked on a scarf and jacket. 
The pants aren't yoga pants, I think they a like gypsy pants? 
Just as comfy but not as flattering. 
 The grey t-shirt is an at home basic.

Day 4 - I really like this look.  Very comfy to wear.

Day 5 - Another day at home with the exception of a Coles run. 
 I love this outfit and it was used for my Aussie Curves challenge "blue".

Day 6 - I love this outfit!  The jeans are from City Chic's TDF range.

Day 7 - Another boring day at home in my trusty grey top and yoga pants. 
I threw on the red cardigan for a trip to Childcare.

Aussie Curves - Feelin' Blue

This week the Aussie Curves theme is Blue!  I love the colour blue and being fair skinned with red hair, I have grown up being told that blue is my colour and that I can't wear pink.

Overall I've had a very blue week... I am right, smack, bang in the middle of essay writing and exam preparation, and I must admit that my motivation (to study) is rapidly dwindling!

Every year a friend of mine hosts a Halloween party, and in the past I either don't go, don't get dressed up or if I do get dressed up I just wear black.  This year I decided to plan ahead early and today my outfit arrived.  My 'costume' is blue and I was very tempted to wear it today for the challenge, but after quickly checking the list I can see that I am going to be able to use the costume as part of the challenge later in the year.  I am not saying what my costume is, but my Instagram feed has a bit of a hint...

This week my challenge outfit is:

Dress - Autograph
Scarf - Autograph
Belt - Autograph
Leggings - Target
Shoes - Kmart
Bangles - City Chic
Earring's - Kmart
Glasses - Kate Spade
