Winter Outfits: Skinny Jeans and Leather Boots

I'm blogging less regularly as life revolves around baby T. I now have more photos than I have time to post, as my stay-at-home-in-pyjamas days are reducing. It means that I can post similar themed outfits together when I do get a chance to blog, so today I'm sharing two different jeans and boots outfits!


Here's what I wore to pop out without baby T:
avalina leather bag skinny jeans and boots embellished grey knit jumper
KnitWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Jeans: Jeanswest blue skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
Bracelets: the usual
BagAudrey leather clutch in cognac C/O Avalina Leather


When I do have to go out without baby T, I take the chance to wear one of my now neglected handbags, even if all I really need is a wallet and phone. Thought I'd wear my cute clutch from Avalina leather again, I like it worn crossbody. Nice to find more jeans I can squeeze into post-baby too! I'm ever so slowly expanding my wearable wardrobe options, after being unable to wear the majority of my wardrobe during pregnancy.

Was a little chilly in this - would have been nice with a jacket or scarf I think. I used to check the weather forecast before planning what I'd wear the next day. Now I just look outside and try guess what the weather will be like while I hurriedly pull on clothes as baby T naps or waits impatiently in his swing for me to get ready so we can go, hehe!


Last worn: studded grey knit, skinny jeans, Asos leather boots, tan clutch.



Here's what I wore to my first new parents group meeting:
pink and yellow skull scarf sass and bide printed denim jeans blazer new parents group
Jacket: Zara black blazer
ScarfAlexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversize tee in black
JeansSass and Bide 'The Archetype' Feather Print Jeans (new purchase)
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in black
Bracelets: the usual


I'd actually planned this outfit in my head before I pulled it on - although I did want to wear the brown boots above with it, I swapped to black boots at the last minute as I thought it looked better. Wanted to look good and be on time for our first new parents group at the clinic, to make a good first impression! Thought the yellow in the scarf made it a good choice to pair with the yellow in the jeans. I bought the pants on ebay to celebrate fitting back into non-maternity jeans.

When I took this photo I was feeling so pleased that everything was going to plan and baby T had been settled for a while. I'd been up with him since 3.30 am so I was a little worried we would not be ready, but he settled eventually. I was able to fix my hair, get us both dressed, fed, and arrive at our first new parents group only 8 minutes late. Only to find out that the meeting started 30 minutes earlier than I thought it did, so I was actually 38 minutes late....I was surprised when the group packed up shortly after I'd arrived, and so embarrassed when I realised how late I was! So much for good first impressions! ;)


Last worn: Zara blazer, pink and yellow scarf, black teeAsos leather boots. First time I've worn the jeans as they are a recent purchase.

  21. Mica first things first; can I start by saying how fit and in shape you look already after baby. <3 You look great!!!! I really like both of your casual outfits. The first one is a chill, laid-back perfect everyday look and I like that the second jeans have some sass to them. Lovely both!
    Smiled reading your "being late" story as it is the story of my life since I had my first kid nine yrs ago. Now it seems like there is always reason to be a bit late to everything haha. Enjoy your baby dear. XOXO, Elif
