You would think that this post was sponsored by Kmart with the amount of items im wearing from these peps, but im not. Im just a huge fan of simple pieces that are affordable (and when i say affordable, top and bottom was less than $20 each). Heres another attempt to broaden my horizons, away from my tight loving ways.
Unlike last year, this is a birthday spent like a teen, packed into a car cruising around Auckland, trying to find places to eat, places to pick up bits and pieces and mostly getting lost. Although i had a rough plan of how we would spend the day, like life, it didn't pan out, the hash tag of the day would have been FAILbutGoingWitDaFlow. Either way what really matters was 1-day off work and 2- spending time with loved ones, laughing all the way.
For the day, i tried something new, new to me at least, the double denim combo.
Mix in the baby pink kimono, my gifted 90s glasses and white shoes its a pale ensemble which i will be wearing again, no doubt.
When i cant figure out what im going to wear, i go to one of my default outfits... Yes, my printed tee, skirt and sneaker combo. This year i have picked up wearing skirts again, since finding my thigh saver in bike shorts.
Chub rub is all too real in this fat girls life and while many of the bloggers i follow, have their own solutions, i never really found these to suite me. What did work was shorts or boxers - what i had worn throughout high school under my uniform skirt. But as i got older and yes, lets be truthful, fatter, it got harder and harder to find these items in my size. Before i knew it, i was favoring pants and tights and these became the norm. But on my trip to Oz last year (while browsing through Target), i finally found bike shorts in my size and from there i have been getting back into the skirt groove.

When i got this dress, i didn't expect it to be boarder flesh toned (the perils of buying online). It took me a while to figure out how i was going to wear this without looking like the missing beige telly tubby, but layers are my best friend. Thank goodness for vests, breaks up the solid colour and a piece that helps transition in Autumn.
Couple weeks ago, i was checking the City Chic email alerts and curiosity had me browsing through their website. Of course i spot this dress but the price was out of my league, so i clicked it good bye.
When i went to the CC Outlet store and actually saw it, the last one, in the colour i had been drooling over, i grabbed that bitch and power walked to the dressing room, hoping it would fit.
Happily it did, so patience and a chance look in the end, paid off.
