What I Wore - Super Striped Skirt

I knew that I needed to have this skirt as soon as I saw it. The moment that City Chic announced it was going up for sale, I bought this along with the spotty dress. It's amazing.




I am also wearing my new jelly shoes. I really, really didn't think I was going to like them, but I absolutely love them. I want to throw out all my other shoes and just exclusively wear jellies. 




Excuse the wrinkles in the skirt, I had been driving in my car!




And it has pockets! It really is my dream skirt come to life!

Introducing Kransky

Yes, Friday was puppy day. We are now the proud owners of a mini dachshund pup named Kransky. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you would have got a huge amount of Kransky spam over the weekend, but just in case you don't, here's some more.

Jesse and I took him out for a play in our court yard, and Jesse used the oppurtunity to snap these photos. I may be biased, but I think he is just adorable!

Things I Love Thursday

Firstly, let me start by saying that IT'S PUPPY DAY TOMORROW!!! I'm beyond excited. I know I probably won't sleep tonight, and tomorrow morning will be so slow waiting for his flight to land. I'll probably get to the airport an hour early, knowing me.

So, to help you get over having to wait for the bombardment of puppy pics that are sure to come, here is some cool stuff!


Via Forever 21

I think this peplum top is just gorgeous!

It's a monochrome striped dress, I had to include it!

Via I'm Your Present



I am all kinds of in love with this cuts of meat dress!


Via ASOS

 These shoes are gorgeous! I would probably chose black though.

Aren't these sandals just gorgeous? I love the colour, and the metallic ankle strap.

Also check out these headless portraits, these cute things, and this Sandlot kid reunion.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

What I Wore - Monochrome Spots

Firstly, let me apologise for the blurry photos. I'm still having issues with my camera, and I couldn't be bothered retaking these. sigh. 

As soon as I saw this dress, I knew it had to be mine! I literally sat on the site on Friday refreshing until it came up. Yes, I am one of those crazy people. 




I love it! It's a poly viscose material, so it's super soft, and it has pockets! POCKETS! I was a little worried it was going to be too short, but it's not. I love the length.




I paired it with my trusty flatforms, but I think it would also look really nice with my knee high boots from autograph.

I am wearing all City Chic today, apart from my shoes! (even my underwear is City Chic)



I bought a few things from their new stock, so keep as eye out for those posts!

25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do - Number 23, Sit In a Booth

25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper! - The Militant Baker

I asked my best friend to snap a shot of me sitting in a booth while we were at lunch on Sunday. This sparked a discussion about the 25 things list. They were stumped as to why fat people shouldn't be able to do these things. To which I replied, that's exactly why we do them!!


So, here is me, sitting in a booth, about to eat in public!! SHOCK HORROR!! 

Thanks to Corri for taking the picture, and for Ben for being in the picture (even though I don't think he realised that he would be)

Aussie Curves - Ruffles

I knew exactly what I was going to wear for this challenge. The only trouble was decided which colour. I am super happy with the look I ended up with.








Excuse the background in these photos. I was having too much fun twirling around to worry about what the background looked like!






I bought this tutu on a trip to Melbourne nearly 5 years ago. Since then I have grown my collection. I've got 4 now, and always on the look out for more. 




I was also getting very frustrated at my camera. I use a count down/multi shot app on my iPhone, and lately it's been crashing after 2 shots. I'm thinking of investing in a bluetooth remote. What do those of you who use your iPhones use?
