Here's what I wore to spend the morning with some mums and bubs:
Tank: Splendid double French stripe tank in 'Flamingo' pink
Skirt: Jeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag
I caught up with some other mummies from my mother's group to go for a little walk and get some socialisation for the babies and us. It was really nice enjoying the warm, sunny day and getting a bit of exercise too. The other mums were in fitness gear, but I don't own gym clothes! I figured a nice light tank and maxi skirt with some Chucks was a good casual outfit for getting out.
The only problem with wearing this was that I forgot to put on sunscreen. Being a new mum and sometimes a little sleep deprived, I do forget things from time to time. But I really suffered after this forgetful moment! My poor shoulders were uncovered and got extremely burnt. Need to throw some sunscreen in the baby bag for the next time I forget to put it on in the morning. Just glad my BB cream has some SPF in it so at least my face was protected, and that my legs were shielded by the maxi skirt.
Last worn: Wayfarers, striped tank, jersey maxi skirt, Converse, Marc by Marc Jacobs baby bag.
Here's what I wore to go shopping:

Went out shopping with my mum and sister the day after the great sunburn walk. I was having such a tough time finding something to wear. My own fault for forgetting sunscreen! I was running out of time finding something to wear as baby T and I were meeting my family at the stores. Started with the maxi skirt as I wanted to be comfortable, and ended up picking the tank top as it was the only thing that didn't "scratch" my shoulders. Even just a simple seam on a tee was too much for my red skin!
I still needed to cover up a little more to avoid any further sunburn, so I picked this kimono as it's so lightweight. I've worn it with a maxi skirt before when I was pregnant, in an almost identical outfit, but it's not a combination I'd usually go for as it's a voluminous top and skirt together. Ended up quite liking this outfit though, although it's not something I would have put together normally. What do you think? Too much with the skirt and kimono together, or not bad?
Last worn: kimono, purple tank, grey maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB.
