Aussie Curves: Polka polka, polka!

Hi beautiful ladies!!!

How are we all this week?! I'm feeling so frikkin amaze balls right about now because I SHOULD be at work teaching my little lovely ones but instead I am still laxing out on my Melbourne long weekend with my sister and friends! As I type we've got girlies still lazing around our room talking smack and giggling about this that and other while sister is cooking up a mean feed for breakfast! Can't wait to eat...sharing food is one of the best things in life I feel!! (That's the islander in me...lol.) ANYWHO, here is my polka dot post!! I got my polka dot shirt which I think is the bee's knees!! :) Its oversized but its not just a straight cut which is why I love it so much. It tapers in at the waist and flairs out again which I only realised when I put it on...a pleasant suprise :)

 I gotta say I don't usually EVER wear polka dots because its totes my sisters thing! Polka dots are a staple part of her wardrobe and for some unspoken reason we usually don't wear each other's "thing" if you know what I mean, lol. Having said that i picked this shirt up in our local Salvo's before I knew we had a polka dot challenge so wasn't that just a cool coincidence!! :) Speaking of coincidences...I also found this sweet knitted jumper on the same day...Isn't the colour just the business?!! Its really warm but yeah the colour...love.



Polka dot pattern shirt, Salvo's $3/Knitted jumper, Salvo's $3/Denim shorts, DIY/Shoes, thrifted but from Rivers $2
Shades, sister's closet/Clip on earrings, MS op shop $2
Guys! This is my new (thrifted of course, haha) bag...I love it! It's hard case and so sturdy AND it was only $2!! I think I will call him Harry! :)




How do you rock the dots guys?! Its not my thing but it SO IS in this shirt! lol.


Peace & Love for the week ahead xx

  2. You've got some great finds there! Love all the different patterns in your shirt...perhaps that's why you love it, it's not straight out polka dots.

    1. Hey Lisa!! :) Yeah I think so too! It was jussssst polka-dotty enough for me! I also liked that being black and white I'd be able to pair it with a lot of different things! I love versatility in a piece! :) x

  3. That colour is VERY MUCH the business. Love it. And love the description of the festivities happening the in the background. You look fab as always. Thrift shop finds, oh my goodness, I've been looking and nothing. I'll hang in though.

    My sister's thing is she HATES dots. Haha. But I get what you mean, we both love stripes and rocking up both wearing them is a bit awkward. Maybe I need to tell her, she's younger, find her own thing... Hmmmm, don't see THAT going well. Haha.

    1. haha, Thanks Ash!! Honestly on my casual teaching budget whilst trying to pay off my current debts, thrifting is the sensible way for me to go!! I just love the plus side of no one having what I do because its not being mass produced at that time!! :D x
