Aussie Curves - Maxi Skirt Photo Challenge

I know, two blog posts in one day, but this one has a deadline!

I have been blogging a lot about body image and acceptance lately, and my change in attitude - accepting my fat, curvy self.  This new self acceptance has in part been inspired by some wonderful plus size bloggers, and also in particular Corpulent, The Fat Nutritionist and  Gold Poretsky at Body Love Wellness. Thank you ladies.

In order to overcome my dislike of seeing myself in photos, I have said that I will do more outfit posts.  Co-incidentally I found a photo challenge through Aussie Curves - an outfit post with a changing theme. This weeks theme is maxi skirts, so it was a double challenge for me! I have only one long skirt - most of my dresses are 50s vintage or 50s style wiggle or full skirt dresses.  This skirt and sleeveless top is in slinky navy jersey - it's my travelling staple as it doesn't crease.

I've paired the outfit with silver slingbacks and a crocheted shrug.  Today is our anniversary and my husband cooked me dinner - we ate out on the deck. It was really hot, and I had just showered and washed my hair, so I pulled it back wet and put on a  large flower.

Skirt and Top ~  $20 (down from $120, on sale at Myers last year)
Shrug ~ thrifted
Shoes ~ Old, can't remember
Earrings ~ fake pearl, $2 on ebay

A big hello to all the lovely ladies in this blog hop - I have just about read all your posts, even if I haven't commented yet xx
