Aussie Curves - Everyday Style

Work has been very physical for me lately, involving alot of stair climbing, moving boxes, furniture and standing/walking around for 6+ hrs every day. 
So needless to say, my everyday style has needed to be comfy and practical...plus its been chilly too! So warmth is a factor aswell. 
This outfit is very similar to my basic casual outfit I will wear when I know I have a big day of work ahead of me.
I start with my Jeans over leggings for warmth. These are by Autograph and I opshopped them for $5.
Then shoes, preferably flat for the long periods of standing and stair climbing. When I'm wearing jeans this is easy as I only have a few pairs that are flat...when I'm not wearing jeans I have major issues here as I don't like the look of any of these flat with skirts or leggings...anyway thats a story for another day!! Flats.... In this outfit I'm wearing practically New Mimco boots I opshopped for $50. Someone told me they reckoned they would be a $600 pair of boots! OMG!! Bargain much?!?
Tops in this weather nearly always consist of long sleeve black tops cause it is a bit chilly here. The top one you can see (I'm wearing 3 layers) is by Kmart which I opshopped for $2.50. I usually wear these under another top but this time I just left them visible.
Over these tops I have one of my most recent op shop buys by Rosie & Dixie. This cardigan/vest is so smooth and lightweight. I love that I can just chuck it on and feel a bit more comfortable hiding some of my more unsightly curves and bulges! I scored this baby for $5 from an opshop of course!
To top off my outfit I've added a $5 opshopped necklace just to add some bling plus I'm loving the longline necklaces of late. Ive heard they are great to help elongate the look of your body.

Clearly I've had to much time on my hands or I'm really procrastinating from doing work cause I'm totally diggin' playing with PicsArt at the moment!!
