I know I said in my post the other day (here) that I don’t really wear denim, and that’s the truth, but it is ‘IN’ at the moment, it’s everywhere, and I kept getting drawn to this top at ASOS. After seeing a girl out wearing a similar top, I decided to take the plunge and buy it for myself when it went on sale. I found it really hard to style though, I don’t wear collared shirts often.
I decided to make it extra feminine. Sure, to me, the denim shirt does have this ‘country’ type vibe to it, but the lace adds that lady like touch. I was really worried when I made this dress into a skirt a couple of years ago, but I’m glad I did, I wear it more as a skirt then I ever would as a dress.
While over the past few years I’ve left my ‘all black’ wardrobe behind and embraced a rainbow of colours, it still weird to see myself in so much white/cream. I’m still not a huge fan of such light colours, I’m pale enough as it is I find they make me look even more of a ghost!

To be honest, I got a little thrown this time with ‘feminine’. I think feminine is certainly one of those things that can mean different things to different people. I think of myself as a feminine dresser, I like dresses & skirts, lingerie, heels, pretty colours.
I decided to push my boundaries a little and go a little crazy. Yes, that is a shark crop top, and yes, I think I managed to make it look somewhat feminine. Sure, sharks aren’t nessasarily what you’d call feminine, but throw on a pretty pink cardi and some pearls and wa-hey.
NOTE: I wouldn’t actually wear it without the cardigan, like the middle picture, but wanted to show off what it looked like on.
The top was a limited edition Black Milk release. For some reason I was really drawn to the shark pattern (IDK!?) & while I would have loved the long sleeve dress or leggings, I opted for the cheapest, being the crop top. It is SUPER tiny. Like teeny tiny. I think it’s one of the first time in a while I was thankful for having small breasts!

This is the last time you’ll see pictures taken at this location. Our house is (pretty much) sold and I’ve (somewhat) settled into #thedarlingden. I wasn’t originally going to post these pictures, you see, this is one of my favourite outfits and I wear it quite often. It’s nearly identical to THIS POST
. I figured I’d share it seeing as it’s been so hot I’ve just been lying around channeling the Wicked Witch of the West, “I’m melting, I’m melting
I was considering saving it for the next Aussie Curves
theme, which is orange, but I figured seeing I’ve added a fair few orange items into my wardrobe the last few months, I should actually put some effort into making a never seen before orange outfit.
I wore this to a family gathering for my Cousins daughters first birthday. It is shockingly bright and often get comments about needing to wear sunglasses or that eyes are starting to bleed. It makes me love the dress even more. For someone who only every used to wear black, I never thought i’d one day be wearing a neon orange dress.
Are you a fan of pink & orange together?
