HOW I WORE IT

There is something sexy about a leather/khaki combo with a pair of stilettos. When I was gifted this belt from Killer Curves Clothing, I knew it would go perfectly with a pair of older-than-old Urban Soul heels I haven't worn in years

Top: Crossroads, Skirt: ASOS, Belt: Killer Curves Clothing (*gifted) Shoes: Urban Soul


I just love this military inspired look! Despite the leather, I think this outfit is still quite girls and soft, which is the perfect way to wear military.

DRESSING MY NEW HAIR

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@karinaxoxo) you would have seen I recently chopped my hair to a short style.

I'll go into more detail next week about the ease of styling short hair, but today I want to talk about how I dress my new hair. Because my ear lobes and neckline are always exposed now, I am really loving being able to dress up my outfits with earrings and necklaces.

I'm not against popping into a chain store accessory shop, but now that I will be wearing costume style earrings every day, I'd rather buy a good quality product.

One of my new fave online shops is www.shabbysisters.com.au


Shabby sisters jewellery is affordable and good quality. Plus they are an Australian retailer and also donated a gorgeous necklace to my friends fundraiser to be raffled off.

Now I just need to find a stylish way to store/hold all these new accessories I am rocking

HOW I WORE IT


As much as I love being a mum, I am getting cabin fever and am looking forward to a night out soon!!

I may or may not pass the days planning what I will wear when I go out for a night with the girls soon! This is my perfect outfit for a winters night out of the town.





I was kindly gifted the Devon Dolman sleeve top by www.killercurves.com.au to consider using in my How I Wore posts. I only had to put it on to know it would be more than a top I would consider! It is quite possibly the most flattering top I have every worn. It's the perfect length for leggings and if you could feel the fabric you would know why I never want to take it off! 

Stay tuned for an update of my first night out on the town in nearly 12 months! 

XOXO

HOW I WORE IT

Today I wanted to show you all that I don't always dress in a perfectly put together outfit.
I always look at other bloggers outfit posts and think "wow, they ALWAYS look so put together". I can't speak for other people, but I generally only showcase an outfit if I've put thought into it, and have taken the time to put it together (read; I am actually going somewhere that requires such outfit)

When I am just running errands for the day with my little man, I a) dress for comfort and b) wear something that can be easily inter-changeable should it get covered in baby spew!

Top: Crossroads, Skirt: ASOS Maternity Pencil Skirt, Thongs: Havaianas

This outfit is perfect because I can easily change the shirt. The skirt, despite being a maternity skirt, is gorgeous. It just has an elastic waist, so can still be worn post pregnancy.

Team this outfit with a pair of dark sunglasses and a high but messy top knot bun and you have my basic day-to-day look

XOXO

OOH LA LA!!!

Remember how I told you about my friend who was going to Shave her head for cancer?

Well some of my girlfriends & I are organising a fundraising function for this weekend to help raise money.

One of my favourite accessory stores www.oohlalaofficial.com has kindly donated this gorgeous bag;



I ALWAYS try to support stores that give back, and it certainly won't be hard to support Ooh La La Accessories. I've already book marked 3 items I'll be buying next pay day




Just what I needed, another online store to become addicted too!

XOXO

HOW I WORE IT

I think I am finally getting the hang of taking "outfit selfies"

Today's outfit features one of my favourite styles... Peplum! It puts a stylish and feminine take on a 'jeans & t shirt' combo.

 For any plus size girls who think they can't wear peplum, think again! Head into a store and try on a few different varieties, I think you'll be surprised.

Top; Target. Jeggings; ASOS Denim look leggings. Belt; ASOS Curve. Wedges; Kmart
Clutch; Equip.



I love that the ASOS belt is long enough to do a bit of a funky knot.

Would you all prefer if I tried to source similar products for any garment I wear that I can not provide the direct link to??

XOXO

HOW I WORE IT

Here is another "How I Wore It" outfit snap shot from dinner at the pub the other night.


Top; Kmart, Jeans; ASOS Matelot in Oxblood, Shoes; Havaianas, Bag; Target




I guess I should clarify that these "How I Wore It" outfit posts are more to showcase how pieces look on a curvy (plus size even, I guess) person. So many retailers these days sell up to a size 18-20 at least, but garments usually look VERY different on a size 16 than they do on a size 8.

My style is, and always has been fairly classic. I own a lot of basis pieces, and can almost guarantee I will wear black on either my top or bottom half.

XOXO
