Aussie Curves - Festival

 

This theme would have normally been pretty good timing, last week our town held it's biannual Outback Festival.  But for the first time since we moved here - 10 years ago - we went away instead. We got back yesterday.

So this week I'm celebrating just being on holidays - housework in between marking assignments and planning for next term.  

Shirt - Sara
Pedal pushers - doesn't that sound quaint? - Crossroads  
Sandals - Target
Earrings - Erstwilder 




One issue with having a large frontal capacity is that often button-up shirts bulge. To over come this I wear a camisole underneath and unbutton the top down to where it fits better, but this gets hot and I live in desert like conditions.

Sometimes I get lucky and find a shirt that fits pretty well over my boobs but is a better fit on my shoulders and tummy, in this case I ladder stitch the areas that look they would pull.

So that's what I did yesterday with a few new tops.



Can't see my bra can you?

    1. I work with teenagers so I'm always worried that they are going to see my bra but it's an easy fix - just make sure your sewing doesn't show, but I'd rather them see a few stitches then my boobs.

    1. Target had a few wedges that I liked - you can't see it in the photo but the back section is iridescent silver.
