Plus Size Outfit – Drawn to grey.

I’m back home in Melbourne and need to get back into the swing of everyday life again. It was great seeing family in Sydney and staying with my parents & their doggos. It’s good to be home though.

All the clothes i’m wearing I picked up in Sydney! I did a bit of shopping & had a bit of trouble fitting everything in my suitcase. I’m so in love with grey at the moment, I seem to picking up grey coloured items all the time lately.

I had to pick up groceries today and was excited I got to wear my new jacket, it’s COLD here in Melbourne! This jacket is so soft and made from a suede like material.  I was actually surprised it fit as I don’t usually try items from Rockmans. It was on sale for $50, down from $100. I love a good sale!

This top was love at first sight, even if it’s not something I would normally be drawn too. I just adored the colour combo of the navy blue and light pink. It is a stretchy light fabric that feels like you’re wearing pyjamas. The pants/leggings are a stretchy cord and I adored them so much I bought them in a navy blue. In case you can’t tell, I’m all about comfy clothes at the moment.

I have soooo many pins and I always forget to wear them, so when my kitty vibe pin arrived I moved all my pins to a more visible location on my dresser. I thought it went well with my ‘Babe with the power’ pin and the pinks made the colours in my top stand out a bit more.

Have you been drawn to a new colour lately?

Outfit – What I wore to White Night Ballarat

Just a short post today. I didn’t really get any good outfit photos from White Night, but I thought I would share these couple of pictures I do have. I wanted to wear something comfortable and not too hot. I also knew that I would be doing a lot of walking, so I wore my Sonsee Anti-Chafe shorts. Chub rub is a bitch and I’ve tried a few things, but I find bike shorts the best. I’m really impressed with Sonsees shorts though, they are breathable, comfy and don’t roll.

I love this dress so much and I have no idea why I don’t wear it more. I was so sad when Domino Dollhouse closed, but I’m glad I have this dress. It always gets lots of compliments.

Outfit – A galaxy of badges!

Do you have those days when you just want to put on your comfiest clothes and crawl onto the couch and not move? I’ve been having a lot of those lately, but alas, being an adult means you often have to suck it up and do what needs to be done. I still want to dress comfy, but if i’m heading out, I like to put a little more effort into my outfit.

My favourite thing  at the moment is this jacket. It’s great for Melbourne weather, it’s warm and comfortable. The main section being denim and the rest being a thick stretch jumper material. I don’t tend to like full denim jackets as I find them a little stiff, but these sleeves (and removable hood) make it fit perfectly.

I decided to customise it with a whole lot of pin back buttons, some of these are soooo old! I also plan to put some of the iron on patches I own on the back! If you want to know where a specific pin came from, leave a comment and I’ll try and remember where its from!

These leggings are proof to check out straight sized stores. These are from Supre! I actually have a few things from Supre. It still amuses me to see how on trend and young girl marketed Supre is these days, as when I was young it had a lot of daggy track suits and more in the way of comfort wear. That’s probably showing my age!

Don’t mention my hair! I’d forgotten how fast some colours fade! The blue lasted so long in my hair, and now that sunset colour has washed out majorly. Anyone want to come over and dye my hair for me? Also, super fresh faced. Just out of a long bath and a facemask, so no make up.

One thing I’ve learnt since moving to Melbourne, is that hoods come in handy! Especially if you don’t carry an umbrella around with you. I’ve been caught out in a random rain shower more then once and have been saved by a hood. Though on the way home from the airport with all my luggage, a lovely lady walked up to me whilst I was waiting in the rain at the crossing, and she walked me all the way to the bus stop with her umbrella. It was so lovely of her, so thank you random wonderful woman. Thank you.
