Balenciaga Blue Day Bag. Zara Blazer, Grey Tee, Asos Pencil Skirt | Pink Blush Maternity Dress, Leopard Print Scarf

Here's what I wore to work on Tuesday:

Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
TeeSpectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtAsos graphic print pencil skirt - on sale! (maternity version here)
Shoes: Wittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga coated stud wrap bracelet in icy blue
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


Grey tee and pencil skirt for a nice easy work outfit. Added the cosy jacket to keep me warm in the morning, as it's starting to get a little chilly. I think it dressed up the tee and skirt combination nicely too. And because I'm still feeling unimaginative with wardrobe options, my Balenciaga day bag again, haha! It's great that this bag goes with so much, as I'm wearing it with everything!

Think the photo doesn't do this outfit justice - I felt really great in this, but I was in a bit of a rush taking photos.


Last worn: Zara blazer, grey tee, Asos maternity pencil skirt, Wittner flatsBalenciaga tempete day bag.

pink blush maternity burgundy dress blue leopard print scarf grey flats

Dressburgundy button sash maternity dress C/O Pink Blush Maternity

Simple dress for work. I love how easy maternity dresses are to wear! Wanted to be warm so added a big cosy scarf. Almost disguises the baby bump.

Wasn't too sure about the burgundy and blue together at first, but I think it looked okay in the end. What do you think?

  2. I really like the burgundy & blue! I've never been to Australia, is it getting on for winter down there as we are heading towards summer up here?

  3. your zara blazer definitely dresses up the first outfit! i think the blue & burgundy combo works well together -- anything in leopard print seems to work as a neutral!

    1. Thank you :) I've paired cobalt blue and burgundy together before, but never this shade, so I wasn't sure at first :)

    1. Thanks Sheila! Although I can't close my jackets over the baby bump, I will be wearing them more in these last few weeks of work I think.

  9. The burgundy and blue was a nice contrast, I think! Your little doggie always makes me smile in the photos, ha. Hopefully they'll be no jealous when baby Mica arrives!

    1. Thanks Corinne! We've had some advice from a dog trainer about making sure Cooper isn't too upset when baby arrives home so hopefully all goes well. :) He's a little unsure around children and we don't know if he's ever seen a baby before (we adopted him) so we got some advice to be sure we introduce them well.

  19. I love what you wore to work. The eggplant color of that dress suits your fair skin and I love the scarf. On the first outfit I always love when you wear that skirt. Awesome boucle jacket, also.

    I know it's getting to Autumn there and you are definitely showing it in these outfits.

    Enjoy a relaxed weekend, Mica. =)

  29. There's that great Zara jacket again !
    I had a similar one in my hand this weekend but the price made me put it back in the rack.
    I also think you look marvellous in that burgundy dress with the animal print scarf: very chic.

    1. Yep, the price was a bit of a splurge for me, but I bought it when I was in Melbourne and justified the price as we don't have a Zara up here in Queensland so I don't shop there often, hehe!
