Stripes and Alexander McQueen Skull Scarves, Marc By Marc Jacobs Bags

Baby T has arrived, and I'm blogging less regularly as life revolves around a newborn and I spend most of my days at home in pyjamas! Every now and then I do venture out of the house, and when I do I try to get a photo so I can share some post-pregnancy outfits.


Here's what I wore to go to an appointment with baby T:
pattern colour mix blue purple stripes and skull print scarf jeans and converse
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
CardiJeanswest long blue drape cardigan
Scarf:  Alexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
TeeAtmos&Here stripe tee
JeansJeanswest Maternity slim straight jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


After my scarf survived the last outing with baby T, I felt brave enough to try wearing one again when we popped out for a quick appointment at the clinic. Managed to keep this one stain free too, we are making progress!

Also pleased to fit into my first pair of maternity jeans again! Bought these early on in my pregnancy, and only wore them twice before I outgrew them...despite the elastic waist. Managed to squeeze into them this time, which was nice.
I still have a post-baby belly so while I can't wear my regular jeans, my maternity jeans are still serving me well. Anything with a comfortable, stretchy elastic waist that worked in pregnancy is working now too.

Here's what I wore to go out to woolies:

ScarfAlexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf
TopTopshop grey knitted scoop neck top
SkirtTarget black and white striped maxi skirt
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


This outfit is really similar to the last time I wore this top, only I was 35 weeks pregnant then! 2 and a half weeks after baby's arrival here. I like pairing this maxi skirt with grey tops, nice easy outfit. I liked the top and skirt together last time so made sense to wear it again. Added the boots to help keep me warm as I popped out quickly to get groceries without baby T. Was really chilly though, did wish I had added a jacket with this.


Last worn: taupe skull scarf, grey knit, striped maxi skirt, Acne Pistol boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag.

  4. I agree with Gabrielle, you look amazing! The fact that you are getting dressed, out of the house, taking photos, and blogging at all with a newborn means you deserve an award! Not to mention your outfits are cute as always. :) I'm enjoying following you on instagram too!

  7. Hooray the McQueen was stain free that day! Hehehe! But seriously loving the second look for a trip to Woolies. Probably because it involves stripes :op but I can totally see how grey tones work a treat with it.

  14. almost back to your pre-baby size again, wow! love the stripe skirt, it does look really good paired with grey (and red!). target is great for good basics and they actually have pretty decent ones if you poke around. hope you've been spending lots of time with baby t and just enjoying the little break :)

  20. Looking great! I swear you are like the queen of making stylish outfits that are still comfortable and practical. I really like the color combo of purple and blue in your first outfit (scarf and cardigan). The pop of red is lovely in the second outfit as well!

    1. Yes I'm enjoying being able to wear my scarves again - and it's good if baby T grabs them he doesn't get hurt like he might if he grabs a necklace! :)
