This week the Aussie Curves ladies are answering the call of nature. Oh. Wait. That’s not right. The call of the WILD for nature week! Now nature and I are a bit love/hate actually. I love the beach and I love to camp with my family and friends. I don’t like to kill animals and when I was a kid I made my Dad leave a ‘nature reserve’ through our farm as a compromise for him clearing some for pineapples. But I hate cobwebs across my face and rodents are THE WORSE. I hate gardening and would rather cement my backyard and put in a pool. And don’t even get me started on how annoying mosquitoes and such are. Ugh. Love/Hate. Loooooooove. Hate!

So nature week I went digging through my cupboard. I was looking for something earthy and something I could wear to dinner at a truck-stop and not feel like a fool who overdressed {ironically, they serve the biggest steaks ever, that’s nature again, right there}. When my eyes fell on the leopard peplum I thought, heck, why not, I haven’t had this baby out for a while. I tied a sash on it, pulled on a hi-lo maxi skirt and some flats. I pulled my hair back in a hair clip and added some nude make-up. Done and done.

What would you have done, do you think? Given the nature theme. Would you have gone browns and greens? Maybe a feather or floral print? Or would you have dressed up as a tree or a tiger!? Haha. I’d love to hear your ideas. I’m curious more than anything. It’s so open to interpretation that I cannot wait to see what all the ladies have come up with. I hope you’ll tell me what you would have done.

    I love your interpretation, and mine would be very similar – only mine would be tiger print maxi with a black tank and a big gold necklace!

  • I love it and you know what I think I would have done something very similar to yourself. I have this gorgeous leopard print vintage silk top with a low back and I love any excuse I can to get a wear. So I think you’ve chosen perfectly. Pics are beautiful, by the way I love your hair pulled back like that. X

    • Gah! That top sounds amazing. Thank you Trudie. Hubby did a great job with the photos and nothing beats a butterfly clip up style for lazy cool. Haha.

      • Actually come to think of it the top has made an appearance on my blog, actually the whole outfit I would of categorised as being a contender for a “nature” theme, if I had to do one.

        • You need to start a vintage ladies link up, get Sherri involved and show off all that is glam and wonderful about your wardrobes. Make it Monday! I can visit while I’m doing my AC rounds. 😉

  • Alison Spence

    Those tones look AMAZING on you! Love the whole look, very naturelle! 🙂

  • Maxabella

    Sassy lady. You look fab! x

  • Sophie

    I’m such a whore for peplums at the moment, and this one is divine! Looking sleek and chic! Love it.

  • HOTT
    Loving the hairdo too! x

  • Spijkerkat

    Another awesome peplum, I covet your collection!!! looking fab!

    • I have three and a top! But believe me, there are many, MANY more in carts just waiting for me to get bulk cash. Haha. Thank you.

      • Spijkerkat

        haha i know the feeling about many more waiting in carts!

  • Everything about this look is so perfect and soft and pretty and awesome. The end.

  • You soooooooooooo rock those peplum tops. And this color is you is amazing. You look stunning. 🙂

    • Well thank you muchly. For all of it. Peplum is a favourite of mine. 🙂

  • Totally smokin! You and peplum together rock my socks Suger! And that nude makeup is magical xxx

    • Thanks Liv! I’m so glad you told me to just take this this top when I was umming and ahhing! It’s been a gem.

  • Ashley Rose

    wowwww smoking hot! Absolutely love the leopard colours on you, this is one of my favs for sure! x

  • I am so in love with this outfit on you, it’s amazing and just looks perfect! I couldn’t figure out what to do for this weeks theme. My Mums suggestion to go out the backyard and take photos of me naked, uh, no. 😛

    • Thanks Nat. I thought it was going to be a bit more casual, but after seeing photos it really is quite, errr, dressy {for lack of a better word}.

      And can I just say, your MUM, what a crack up! Make sure you read her the first part about the call of nature, she seems like she’d get a kick out of that. 😉

    I love the peplum with the long skirt, and your hair looks so sweet and sophisticated!

  • Great outfit. Very lady like hair today. Sweet with a touch of sassy.

  • I’m not sure I’ve ever seen you with your hair back. It’s stunning! How are you not doing this more often? Love it.

    I was saying to Joel last week that if he ever saw me wearing an animal print of any kind, he should go ahead and just call the police – tell them I’m being held against my will. because I’d have to be forced to put one on.

    BUT {and you must get so, so sick of hearing this from me} – that really suits you. I should hate it – but I don’t. It doesn’t look at all hooker-ish (Lol, sorry. That’s normally what leopard print says to me}. You look absolutely lovely!

    • Thank you. I wear it back a lot for work, but as soon as I walk out the door, I let it out.

      HA. Baaahaha. I know, right!? I’m pretty similar, not a big fan of the old animal prints. This top came to me as a hand me down, I tried it on and kept it more as a nod to peplum, it turns out, it was a teeny tiny nod to animal prints too. Haha. So thank you. Glad to be the anti-hooker in this case. HAHA.
