Ahh Mondays, it just wouldn’t be the same without an Aussie Curves post. This week, pastel week, I was in a world of hurt. I knew I could rehash the coloured denim look I love so much with my mint coloured jeans. I wanted something different though. Something that was vacation comfortable without be too daggy. Luckily Just Jean’s came to the rescue with this adorable tee from the men’s section. Speaking of men’s, here’s my mans {said like Anthony in SATC, of course}, Hubby also happened to wearing pastel… Matchy matchy!

This week Hubby and I are staying with Danimezza and her gorgeous family. The boys are all getting along beautifully which means we are all set for some serious lady bonding time. Which means, Aussie Curves is proudly brought to you by this gorgeous location opposite a very busy entrance into Coles. D’oh. Bit of a fail. It apparently means you have to be ever vigilant to not get run over by a truck and very prepared to prance and pose in front of turning traffic. Keeping watch and letting the photographer know when they are coming is serious business. As you can see…

So let’s talk about this men’s tee. It’s a bit gorgeous with the pastel colours and cute print on the front. Its bathing beauties with the words Just Chilling Out for those playing at home. And at two for $50 for new stock, I was happy with that. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt as a plus size shopper, it’s to take cute items when and where you can get them. I have another one almost identical to this with a pale blue sleeves and different print. So versatile, I love that.

This shirt was quite fitted in store, I wore it for about 20 minutes before taking the photos. It stretched nicely to give that fitted across my boobs but looser at the waist and stomach fit that I love. So don’t be afraid to buy a little smaller when it comes to t-shirt material. Especially men’s shirts. I find it you buy them too baggy then you might as well be wearing a sack. Ladies with pear shapes this look might not be for you without some customisation. Consider knotting them over a dress or to expose some mid-drift for the brave to define your waist.

If I didn’t need the pastel boost I would absolutely have worn my converse sneakers with this look. Nothing beats comfy old jeans and sneakers for a day shopping and prancing about for photos. Were you expecting serious outfit post type action? I really hope not. I was having too much fun and half the photos are crazy faces and mad looks. That’s what you get for requesting a location that requires the photographer on the other side of the road. HA. But there are lots of cool pics, a funky accessory {hello Sugar Coated necklace!} and some casual flats. Don’t you think these kerbside purple flowers are THE best? They go so beautifully with pastels.

    I find sometimes men’s tees are cuter than women’s, especially if ur looking for something a little ‘unfussy’!

    • Absolutely, I think that’s it. Unfussy is just what you need sometimes.

  • flashionfashion blog

  • Gorgeous! So glad you guys crashed my pad x

  • Cherie

    … looking gorgeous as always. Hope you’re both having the very best time 😉

  • Very sweet I love it, the tea is fab are you’re looking so happy and playful. I love the necklace too and was getting confused thinking I missed something like you bringing out your own line of accessories……duh to me.

    • Haha. Like I said to Virtu, I’m claiming it as a my namesake necklace. Thank you, the tee was one of those oh dear I NEED that moments.

  • I’m so jealous, I want to to hang out with you two as well!!
    this is a great casual outfit.. I really fail at casual, so you’re giving me some good ideas..

    • It’s been fun, another time I’m sure.
      Thank you, you’re so nice. xo

      It is lovely to see how much you guys get out of blogging, Jeanie goes to blogging conferences and you guys hang out, so wonderful. And you make facebook a fun place for yourselves as well. 🙂

  • Cute. Loving the sugar-coated necklace, the lippy and the near-death experience! Looking forward to catching up on Fri xxx

    • Thanks lovely. Me too. The near death experience was at suburb street pace, so it would’ve been slow to say the least. See you FRIDAY!! Holy cow lady, so excited.

  • Linda Melhuish

    You are right about the sack thing, you have done a great job and your post was very enjoyable to read.

  • Bek

    Oooh men’s tees good idea. I often find the women’s tees boring. Love the colour in your tee.

    • Thank you Bek. I’m wearing an XXL here but my largest half is my top half, so worth a look for sure. Thank you.

  • Guilty of thinking a sack was best (in my teens). *hangs head in shame*.
    That necklace is SO YOU! In my head TS designed it with you in mind =)
    Loving your pastel look. Great tee!

    • The sack shirt WAS that decade, it wasn’t you. It continued for YEARS.
      Thank you, I like to think so. I told Beth that whether they did or not I’m claiming it. 😉

  • Super cute outfit! I so wish I look as good as you do in jeans, i’m rather envious. I keep eyeing that necklace on the Virtu site, it’s super pretty!

    • Thank you lovely. These ones are good ones, the fit is soooo comfortable but flattering.
      Love it too. So glad to have the purchase or not purchase decision taken out of my hands. xo

  • You two are just the cutest!! I want to squish you up in big pastel cloud cuddles!

    ….

    Basically I love you.

  • mele

    Oh my gosh I can imagine you two talking non-stop….Are you playing dress ups and dancing to classic 80’s fun songs????? I love casual OOTD shots….just lets us into you everyday….there is something different about seeing people in the clothes they play and chill out with. Also a fan of that baseball style top.

    • I had a big ass laugh at this because last night WE WERE! Haha. There is right? I don’t often use my day to day stuff on Aussie Curves, I always miss the themes. So the Wednesday/Friday posts are usually more this kind of stuff. 🙂

    How great are men’s t-shirts. I’m constantly stealing Luigi’s, espcially during pregnancy.

  • beautiful as always. mens tees are fantastic! love the shoes too 🙂 xx
