Aussie Curves | Orange

Don't be scared by this week's Aussie Curves can wear orange and not look like a pumpkin! I absolutely love orange. To me, orange is the new black.  There's not a week that goes by, that I don't add a pop of orange to an outfit. In fact, the handbag I use everyday is bright orange and hot pink (thank you Kardashian ladies for designing that one!). It really does lift your mood.
For this week's outfit, I've combined a few different shades of orange with pink and red, for a fresh, summery look. I originally bought this dress as a light option to wear on a hot summer's day, or to pop over the top of my swimmers. By adding an orange jacket, I've been able to give this casual dress a new identity!
Pale orange and pink accessories, compliment the coral orange and reds in my frock, and add another layer of colour to my overall look.
When wearing a bright colour such as orange, make sure you choose a shade that compliments your skin tone. As a fair skinned blondie, a bold orange (such as that of my wedge heels below) would be too much. The coral of my jacket brightens my face and hair colour, giving me a healthy glow.
Bright orange wedge heels, while being super comfortable and light to wear, add a serious pop of colour...carrying the colour scheme right throughout my outfit.
I'm so glad this challenge has pushed me to shop my wardrobe, and give my clothing new life! I had honestly dismissed this dress as nothing more than a casual option for bumming around the house. Now, I can't wait for my next lunch date to throw it on again!

There you have from head to toe, and not a pumpkin in sight!  How often do you "shop" your wardrobe? It's amazing how mixing up the clothing pieces and accessories you already own, can save your budget.
