Aussie Curves – Mixing Patterns

December 10, 2012

I was planning on getting my crazy colour on and going ‘out there’ for this weeks theme. One of my favourite blogs is Macademian Girl, in my opinion she does crazy, bright, clashing, ott outfits to perfection. However I woke up Saturday not feeling the best, and Sunday not so better. So I opted for my ‘go-to’ mixing patterned outfit.

The weather has been crazy and I think my hair shows that. It reached 32, but a few hours before these photos were taken it was storming. I quickly put Tonka on his lead, and ventured into the yard at 7pm to take these pictures. Thank heavens for daylight savings. What do you think of this backdrop for outfit pictures?

I have a love of animal prints, well, not the usual animal print like leopard or cheetah, but prints, silhouettes, or animals. I call this skirt my ‘Henry skirt’ as it reminds me of my fur baby Henry (Who lives with his daddy). I actually have the skirt in the blue colour way too.

    So much cute as usual! Love the two prints together, very you! xx

  • You and Mr Tonka looking lovely as usual. I am loving the new garden backdrop.

    Ohh. I don’t own skirts. But I must have that kitteh one. So cute!

  • Pumba

    I think the garden makes a lovely new backdrop.

  • You look so conservative to your normal outfits. You still look stunning though =) Oh my gosh Macademian Girl has some crazy awesome style. Love the new backdrop too.

  • Ezmae Reid

    CUTE! I love how it is cats vs dog prints! Love both pieces and love them together. Your garden looks nice, very nice spot for outfit photos!

  • Siki-Lou

    preeeeeeeeetty!! Loving the gold accents from your shirt buttons and belt!! 🙂

  • Jocelyn ~ Mama’s Style

    You look so cute… loving the belt! Wish I had your garden.

  • I love this outfit! Especially the outfit – you are just so adorable!

  • Mandie

    Gorgeous – love mixing cats and dogs! What kind of mascara do you use? It’s perfect!!

  • Love love love the doggie print shirt! its perfect!! 🙂

  • Your top and skirt combo makes it look like its raining cats and dogs! 😛

    I love the combination of that skirt and blouse though its like out of left field, quirky conservative wear. I love it.

    I love the backdrop, especially in the wide shot. Looks like a nice place to take pictures. What mascara are you wearing? It looks great.


  • Hee! I love that saying, its so weird 😛 Yeah, I feel rather prim and proper in this outfit, like I should be wearing pantyhose and heels, but then with the print, I think it makes it more ‘me’.

    The mascara is Maybelline XXL Curl power.

  • Thank you! This one is Maybelline XXL Curl power. I believe you can pick it up from Big W and similar places.

  • Thank you! I don’t often wear light colours but I couldn’t resist this top.

  • Aw, thank you!

  • I am so in love with this garden, I find myself sitting outside so much. While I do kind of miss the pool at our old place, I have to admit, I’m so in love with this house.

  • Thank you! I don’t wear gold, these are probably 2 of the only gold items i own 😛

  • Ha yes, but who would win! I’m glad people are liking the new outfit spot!

  • Ha, thank you! I felt rather ‘proper’ in it. I actually used to dress very ‘ladylike’ so it felt quite normal to wear, I just felt like I should of been wearing stockings and heels.
    How amazing is Macademian Girl, I’m in constant awe of her outfits. I just think she puts them together so amazingly well, i could never pull off half of the combinations she does, but she just wears them so well!

  • Yay! I’m glad you like!

  • Yes, he was happy because he’s been wanting to get out and play in the yard but I couldn’t for the life of me find his lead, but I found it and he’s been happy having some outside exploring time. I feel bad because he used to be an indoor/outdoor cat, but he’s only allowed outside when he’s on his lead with me.

  • Thank you! 🙂

  • Jen @ oh!Scorpio

    I’m going to break into your house and raid your closet and steal that belt. I don’t even care if it doesn’t fit me. I’ll wear it as a necklace.

    You have been warned.

  • I think that pattern mixing is the best way to make yourself feel better! 🙂 I LOVE LOVE LOVE that turtle belt. It’s so freaking adorable! And I think the background is so lovely for outfit shots! it’s so dreary and cold her right now, I am envious of all the greenery and sunshine!

  • Love the kitties and puppies…very sweet. Totally fun outfit, and the patterns really work together!

  • Gorgeous! Loving this outfit and loving the patterns. Hope you’re feeling better today. xo

  • cute belt!! And the rest of the outfit is lovely too. I like the background, so green and lush!

  • cats and dogs – patterns weren’t the only things you mixed… love this look
