Aussie Curves "Stripes"


This weeks challenge was all about the humble "Stripe". Stripes have always been a classic to me. A staple, go to item when i still want to remain simple, but fun! And whoever came up with "Stripes are a no no for curves" ,CLEARLY had suffered a knock in the head!
I felt like a pop of colour so opted for this stunning, silky shirt by 17 Sundays. Its more a summer piece, featuring cropped sleeves and a light,flowing fabric. Not being quite warm enough for the day, i opted to layer with a blazer to hide my limbs from the elements. I have many more plans for this piece though , as it has made its way into my Thailand suitcase!
Now, the blazer i came across this blazer in Kmart! I was as suprised as im sure you are when i spotted this cut from across the aisle. For the unbelievable $19 price tag i sure plan on heading back for the pink, lilac and green (As we all know how much i love a blazer!)


How do you love to rock your stripes?

The Outfit:
Jacket- Kmart , Bag- Sportsgirl, Shirt - Gifted from 17 Sundays ,Skirt- Kmart $10, Necklace- Ebay.
