Blazer, Printed Dress, Leather Boots | Leopard Scarf, Hoodie, Skinny Jeans and Converse

Baby T has arrived, and I'm blogging less regularly as life revolves around a newborn. When I do go out and change out of my usual stay-at-home outfit of pyjamas, I try take a photo so I can still blog when I have time.


Here's what I wore to run some errands:
zara blazer fcuk printed jersey dress leggings and boots
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara black blazer
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressFrench Connection butterfly jersey tie waist dress
Leggings: Cotton On
BootsAsos Cleo leather boots in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag (not in pic)


DH and I had an appointment and a couple of errands to run, so as always I planned the outfit in my head the night before. I used to actually try on outfits the evening before, but there's no time for that now with baby. Sleep is more important ;)

In the rush to get out the house I went to put on my chosen outfit...and realised that although I'd like to be able to squeeze into my old fixed waist skirts, I'm still not there yet! Stretchy fabrics are still a post-baby essential. Quickly decided to go with a dress instead. Printed dresses are always a good option as you don't really need to think too much! And with a crying baby and already being 10 minutes late, I wanted the simplest, quickest option.

Last time I wore this dress, I was using the tie and print to disguise my little early second trimester baby bump. It works equally well to disguise the little 3 week post-baby belly! I'm finding that post-pregnancy, the easy outfit options I wore for the first few trimesters are coming in helpful again. And when I'm uninspired, there's always my helpful maxi skirts that I grew to love so much over pregnancy. With elastic waists of course!


Last worn: Ray-BanZara black blazer, French Connection jersey dress, grey leggings, Asos leather boots.



Here's what I wore to go to baby T's newborn photoshoot:
neon leopard print scarf juicy couture hoodie black tee converse skinny jeans
JacketJuicy Couture Long Sleeve Original Zip Hoodie in 'Silver Lining'
Scarf: Supre neon pink leopard print scarf (new purchase)
Tee: Kmart plain black tee
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag (not in pic)


Nice comfortable, casual outfit for baby T's newborn photoshoot! At 3 weeks old, we were finally feeling confident in our ability to settle him long enough to get a couple of good shots in a photo shoot ;) Our photographer is awesome, the same guy who did our incredible wedding photos. I can't wait to see the final result, we have had a sneak peak at a few of them and they are great. Will try pop one or two up on instagram, @awayfromblue.

Jeans and a tee seemed the most comfortable outfit to wear. I added the scarf for a bit of colour, to keep me warm with the chilly early morning start, and so that I could have something to put on after the session if baby T got a little messy. It came in handy to hide the ruined outfit on the way home! Plus I wanted to wear my new scarf. An impulse sale by from our lunch date the other week. I can't resist a cute scarf, and it was a bargain at $5!


Last worn: Juicy Couture Hoodie, black tee, maternity skinny jeans, Converse. First time I've worn the scarf as it's a recent purchase.
