Weekend Outfits: Sass and Bide Neon Tank, Striped Skirt, RM Mini MAC | Printed Maxi Dress, Miu Miu Studded Bag

Here's what I wore on Saturday:
print mixing sass and bide tank stripe maxi skirt

Rebecca minkoff metallic silver mini MAC bag house of harlow aztec bangles
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace
Top: Sass and Bide 'Musical Genius' tank
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow Aztec bangles in fuschia pink and silver, white and silver
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


My sister came over for lunch on Saturday as she just got back from her holiday and wanted to catch up. I got to see all the photos and hear all the stories, and I'm very jealous! She had an incredible time. She brought me back a beautiful sarong from her trip too.

We had to go out in the morning and actually buy some groceries so we had enough food in the house to make a decent lunch, so I dressed as simply as possible to try and beat the heat. A little bit of print mixing with the striped skirt and geometric tank too.


Last worn: Sass and Bide tank, striped maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to go shopping and have lunch with my parents today:
black and white print maxi dress for second trimester baby bump

miu miu cammeo studded bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: gifted gold heart shaped necklace
DressPearl black and white jersey maxi dress
Shoes: Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus pink and gold bracelet stack
BagMiu Miu cammeo studded clutch bag


Just wore a simple maxi dress as it was so hot today. I've mentioned before that we are turning the spare room (currently being used as my wardrobe room) into baby's nursery. I'm trying to reduce what I own, as well as finding better ways to store what I'm keeping. My wall of handbags is going to be retired and everything moved from display into storage boxes.

Went to Ikea today to get a few more boxes and some other organisational things. As my parents live nearby, we decided to have lunch with them there too. Lunch was delicious, but we ended up spending almost 4 hours shopping there, oops! Got everything I needed though to help with the next stage of the wardrobe organisation/clear out project, and a few little extras.


Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarers, printed maxi dress, Wittner studded sandals, Miu Miu studded bag.

  13. Ah it's ok about storing the handbags into boxes! They are still with you and as long as you organises them well, they can still be displayed somewhat and look at :)

      My wall of bags will be retired to a box of bags under the bed, haha. Need to clear everything out from baby's room, I hear babies can be messy and a baby and handbags on display might not work..... :P

    1. Thanks Lorena :) My new storage solution is nowhere near as spacious and pretty as the old - I have a video up on youtube of my old wardrobe/bag/shoe room - but now most things are packed away in boxes.
      Will definitely share more video and maybe some photos of baby's nursery when it's done :)
