Living In Leggings – The Perfect Chaos Wear – Aussie Curves!

So I have been thinking about writing this post this whole last week.

A photo challenge requiring leggings… That means full body photographs and that scares the begeezes out of me.

I have, for as long as I can remember, been avoiding cameras.

The occasional ‘selfie’ occurs, that is of course, totally posed and taken on the right angle, if you know what I mean… other than that I like to be the one behind the camera.

The Aussie Curves Photo Challenge is not just about wearing some outfits and looking all spiffy for me.

It’s about finding me, finding my confidence, accepting what I have and doing the best I possibly can with it.

It’s been a long time coming so I hope you all enjoy the ride with me each week as the challenges are thrown at me!

Leggings are a staple item in my wardrobe. I have them in all different lengths but unfortunately they’re all pretty much black.

There is one lonely pair of ‘blue jeggings’ in there somewhere, and a black pair with tiny gold stars on them too but most of my outfits look best with plain black so that is what I buy!

If I can find some brighter coloured leggings in the future I may give them a go too!

Now, it’s so easy to get a different ‘look’ out of leggings, all you have to do is change the shoes you wear.

thongs with leggings
Thongs with leggings for a casual look. I'll ofetn wear 3/4 length leggings with thongs in the warmer weather.
leggings and boots
My favourite look for winter, tall boots with leggings!

So as you can see i like to mix it up a bit but today I am going with the tall riding boots.

It’s too bloody cold here to contemplate anything else!

My outfit today:

Animal print jumper: Kmart

Black dress: Undercover wear

Star Leggings: Autograph

Boots: Autograph

    1. Oh yes! I've been wearing boots with leggings all season long too. Love it. Great job with the photo. I am so glad to be along for the ride. One day it'll seem like second nature. Take it from someone who knows. Haha.

      Thanks Melissa, I think I need to train hubby in taking a decent shot!I loaded the pics onto the computer and almost died at the way my hair was looking.... Polite man never said a word..... :-0 LOL!!!!

    3. Super cute leggings! I love the print! It's fab to see a full length shot! Just wait, It won't be long before you're snapping away the full lengths all the time! Xx

    4. I love living in leggings, I usually take them off to go out in public, loving looking through and getting ideas on how to wear them well!

    5. You are too cute with the different shoe options and those AWESOME star leggings. I LOVE stars.

      Thanks Kat! I wear them everywhere!

    8. AMAZING Jacqui! I love love love how cute those star prints are. I love leggings - so comfy and in this Melbourne weather, a great thing to layer on. :)

    9. I'm glad you were brave and posted a full-length shot. You look great (and I think your hair looks just fine). The little stars are just too cute :)

    10. I hear you about building body confidence! I find that I'm trying a little harder with how I present myself now. These challenges are great! Good on you for posting the full body shot. I love the animal print with the starry leggings. Great mix of patterns.

    11. I still wear leggings and thongs, lol my go to look. I'm so glad you're getting so much out of this challenge. For me it's about pushing my boundaries now I have confidence but it warms my heart to know that others are getting my pure intentions, to share the body/fashion love xx

    14. Good on you Jac! I am participating in Aussie Curves for the same reason! A way to build self confidence and self love and well, just getting used to looking at myself without judgement. So far the themes haven't been anything I have clothes to match, so I have been finding my own way around the themes, but hopefully next week I'll have my first full-length outfit photos!
