Here's what I wore to pop out without baby T:
Warehouse grey bead front jumper
Jeans: Jeanswest blue skinny jeans
Shoes: Asos Cleo leather boots in tan
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Audrey 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:
Scarf: Alexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
Tee: Atmos&Here rolled sleeve oversize tee in black
Jeans: Sass and Bide 'The Archetype' Feather Print Jeans (new purchase)
Shoes: Asos 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 tee, Asos leather boots. First time I've worn the jeans as they are a recent purchase.
