Aussie Curves - Stripes

I'm not gunna lie, I've been saving this post for a few weeks for this challenge. What began as a simple spring outfit turned into a technicolour party!

I've been feeling very flat lately with my outfits. Just very boring and not what I used to be. I was looking at old photos and just reminiscing but not really doing anything about changing myself back to the old me with all my outgoing and carefully structured outfits. When I was getting ready I put this dress on and I was just going to wear it with leggings and a black cardigan and that would've been that. But then I thought back to when I bought the dress. We were in Italy and it was a hot day and I only had winter clothes and nothing summery fit me so I had to hunt for something in my size that was cheap and not shit looking (Just like I have to hunt here, but faster because I didn't want bad outfits in my holiday photos haha). I found this dress and wore it just with a furo green bracelet and sandals. So when I put it on again now I thought, 'Where did all my cute go?...'. I started with the tights and then it all just snowballed. I felt so cute once I was done. I haven't felt that cute and so 'like myself' in a long time.

I had no reason to go out so I just took myself out on a date to Savers where I found the most amazing vintage dresses. Its not often I find more than 1 great vintage dress in the one place but I found 4! 4 plus size vintage brightly coloured dresses! Im pretty sure you can just imagine how excited I was haha

To end the day I sat in the park in the city and ate sushi and read my book. It was so peaceful and I just felt like i was back to normal again.
