But I sense a changing in the wind... my confidence is increasing and as the stores start bringing out their spring/summer collections I am seeing pieces that would normally make me wince in fear and I am actually excited to give them a go. So in anticipation of picnics, beach days and icy ciders in the sun, here is my spring/summer 'once-never-would-have-gone-there-but-plan-to-this-year' wishlist!
Thighs! Knees! Cellulite! Well none of that's gone but something I'm realising is that a) I care far more about showing my legs than anyone cares about seeing them!, and b) they're legs, everyone has them, they get hot and for f sake I have every right to wear shorts like anyone else! This spring/summer I'm loving high waisted shorts. I've been trawling the net looking for the perfect pair in my size and am yet to find them. However I am planning on cutting a pair of op-shop jeans into cut offs and the lovely Charming by Jessica Dee is making a printed pair as we speak. But you'll have to wait till it's warmer to see those! In the meantime I am lusting after these styles.
Vintage available at BrownBagVintage via Etsy
Those who know me know I love a good kimono shrug/jacket. Something about the slouchiness, vintage-feel and coolness is irresistable. I'd add these to my collection.
I'm thinking 90s inspired flowy prints.
In other news I am holed up on the couch with a shocking cold (not very summery I know). I have my Aussie Curves Feminine post ready to go so as soon as I can drag myself out of the house I will snap some shots. Stay tuned!
