Here's what I wore to go grocery shopping with Cooper and baby T:
Juicy Couture Long Sleeve Original Zip Hoodie in 'Silver Lining'
Top: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank (on sale!)
Jeans: Jeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag
Stroller: Steelcraft Strider Compact
Decided to go for a bit of a walk to the post office and pick up some groceries too. Gave me a chance to enjoy the afternoon sun with baby T and Cooper, and to get out of the house. Unfortunately, in my sleep-deprived state I forgot the thing I had to mail, so I'll have to make another trip to the post office later. Also forgot to get half my grocery list too, should have written things down!
Really simple casual outfit for walking around, with the hoodie to keep me warm as it was a little windy and chilly. Stripes because they go with everything, and black and grey as they go with everything too and don't require any special consideration or co-ordination. Still wearing my maternity jeans! They are comfortable and suitable for the little leftover bump I'm retaining after birth. Plus they have that elastic waist panel that helps pull everything in ;)
Last worn: Juicy Couture hoodie, stripe tank, maternity skinny jeans, Converse, Marc By Marc Jacobs baby bag.
Here's what I wore to visit family and go shopping:
Alexander McQueen skull scarf in light blue (currently on sale!)
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt: AT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoes: Nine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete
It's funny looking back in the blog and seeing that the last time I wore this tee and this maxi skirt was in my third trimester. Happy to report that none of my regular wardrobe stretched out permanently with me wearing it during pregnancy, everything is still fitting well. I know some people are concerned about clothing being stretched out of shape by a growing baby bump, but I haven't run into any issues. It helps that a lot of my wardrobe is very stretchy/oversized anyway I guess.
Wearing stripes again! Might have to rename the blog "Away From The Stripes" soon! I am just focusing on quick and easy outfits each day, not too concerned with trying new things or outfit combinations at this point. The clothes I grab to wear have to look passable on the first try as there is rarely time to change. Even on days I don't get time for a photo, I still seem to be going with stripes. Wore this on a warm sunny afternoon, we did some shopping and had dinner with my family. I added a jacket later in the evening, but didn't need one during the day.
Last worn: blue skull scarf, grey tee, stripe maxi skirt, glitter flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.
