Blue Skull Scarf, Stripes, Blazer and Maxi Skirt | Maternity Skinny Jeans and Boots, MbMJ Ukita Bag

Now that baby T has arrived, I'm blogging less regularly as life revolves around a newborn and I spend most of my days at home in pyjamas! Below are two of the chances I've had recently to get dressed and get out of the house, and had time to take an outfit picture.


Here's what I wore to take baby T for a checkup and visit Centrelink:
Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf stripe tank, maxi skirt blazer
Jacket: Zara black blazer
ScarfAlexander McQueen skull scarf in light blue (currently on sale!)
TankGlassons striped tank in black and white
SkirtJeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag (not in pic)


Tried to dress a little more like myself on this outing - I felt really dressed up with the blazer actually! Just carried all of my paperwork and things in the baby bag. So pleased we bought a large bag as I can throw my things in with everything needed for baby. And all of the paperwork Centrelink need...

Wasn't sure how my scarf would fare, but decided to wear it anyway and managed to keep this outfit stain-free. Although baby T did sneeze milk right in my face after a feed, it missed my clothes. Life with baby isn't very glamorous, but it is hilarious!


Last worn: Zara blazer, blue skull scarf, Glassons stripe tankjersey maxi skirt, Converse.



Here's what I wore to spend the afternoon with DH:
Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans and brown Asos boots 2 weeks post baby

Marc by Marc Jacobs Lil Ukita Bag worn cross body rock lobster pink red
Necklacevintage gold initial necklace
Top: thrifted Zara cream shirt (recent purchase)
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


Really liked this outfit! Got to carry my own handbag as baby T was babysat by family for an afternoon, which gave DH and I the chance to have a little lunch date together. We are lucky to have such helpful and supportive family. While it was nice getting some time out without baby, it was the longest we've been apart since he was born (he was just over 2 weeks old when I took this photo) and I did miss him a bit! Was nice to change out my handbag from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag I had my things in when I went into labour.

This Zara top is another one of my thrift finds from my op-shopping day as I filled my time waiting for baby's arrival. This is the first time I've been able to wear it as it didn't cover the baby belly before, hehe. The Endeavour Foundation store had a bunch of Zara items, so I ended up with a few things. Cheaper than flying to Sydney for a Zara fix ;)


Last worn: maternity skinny jeans, Asos brown leather boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs little Ukita. First time I've worn the top.

  22. You look beautiful and still glowing Mica. Love the light scarf with the darker color combo. You always rock a maxi. My favorite outfit is the second one though: beautiful simplicity.

    Hope baby T is well and his check-up went well, also. Hugs, Ada. =)

  24. Looking great in both outfits! I'm glad to hear baby T is doing good, the sneezing of milk in your face actually made me chuckle out loud. I bet it must be a lot of work to have a newborn, but at the same time it must be so rewarding and (like you said) hilarious at times! Hope you are doing well :)

  32. Oh my, I'm loving both outfits so much! Your boots in the second are super pretty and if it weren't the middle of summer here I'd say I'd wear them in a heartbeat too. The baby blue McQueen scarf is one of my faves from you, so I'm happy to read Baby T missed it, haha. xo
