NZ Style Curvettes - Bright

My older brother and his wife are expecting a baby in the next few months, and have decided to go on a Babymoon (last holiday away before the bub arrives) so I have been housesitting for the last week.

Now you know that saying "A change is as good as a holidays", well yes it's great unless you wanna take some outfit photos and discover what you have packed doesn't really work for the theme you were going for.

So that said, there are some major flaws with my Bright outfit pics, however to make up for that I have done 2 [half] outfit pics so it sorta equals one good proper one, in my mind anyway.

Outfit 1 - Complimentary Colours
When I read 'bright' as this weeks theme, I automatically thought of my new [secondhand] bright orange blazer I opshopped just the other day for a whole dollar! I don't really own any blazers, but this one just stood out so I had to get it, especially considering just the day before I wore an orange based outfit with some of my fave (orange of course) wedges.

I love this orange blazer with this blue singlet cause the colours just compliment each other, of course, because orange and blue are complementary colours.

Outfit 1 flaw:
I am not wearing anything (other than underwear) on the bottom half! Lol I just didn't have anything that went! 
I would probably have used a blue skirt I have the same colour as the singlet with a thin black belt to break up the massive block of blue and wear my orange wedges I mentioned earlier. See these in the pic below.

Outfit 2 - My Christmas dress
I bought this dress a while back on a visit to Melbourne....quite some time ago really...last year cause I wore this dress on Christmas day (2014). I haven't worn it at all since then, I don't know why though. So it got placed in my suitcase for my housesitting stint and then I saw it and thought "hmmm I could use that for my bright photos" 

Outfit 2 flaw: 
I'm not wearing any shoes and have no matching accessories which is usually something I do. I'm very much a 'matchy matchy' outfit kinda gal if you hadn't already noticed.
I would probably have accessorised this dress with the bright blue colour. Some chunky blue wedges I have and some matching blue earrings. See them in the pic below!

Outfit 1 Details:
• Orange blazer || Millers || Opshopped for $1
• Blue singlet || City Chic || Opshopped New for $4

Outfit 2 Details:
• Blue, purple & fleuro yellow dress || City Chic || $30 from City Chic Harbourtown Outlet in Melbourne.  

See you all next week for stripes!


  1. My god I want those blue shoes!!! How lovely are they! The blue dress is also a stunner :) YAY for bright jackets. If I have to wear all black at work (as in I didn't plan ahead) I have a bright yellow jacket and a fluro pink. Bring on the colour!!

  2. I love that Christmas dress! Blue looks great on you! :)
