Here's what I wore to brave the rain to go to the post office:
beige trench coat
Knit: Vintage David Jones orange wool knit jumper from AWLQ vintage sale
Jeans: Jeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
Shoes: Asos Cleo leather boots in tan
Being on maternity leave I'm home with baby T for the majority of each day, yet I seem to have a special ability to be out whenever there is a parcel delivery! Had to go out in the rain to go to the post office and pick up a parcel I'd missed the delivery of. It was an unexpected and cute little outfit someone had sent us for baby T, so worth the trip in the rain to go get it.
A couple weeks back (when I took this photo) I was doing the Style and Shenanigans texture challenge and had been wondering what winter items I had in my wardrobe for each day of the challenge. The first day was wool, and I remembered I have this awesome vintage wool jumper that hadn't been worn all winter. It was such a cold and rainy day, it was perfect for it! Being in tropical Queensland, it doesn't often get cold enough to need wool. Thought I'd be a little more adventurous and pair the orange knit with some burgundy skinny jeans. Not a colour combination I've tried before, but I really liked how it turned out.
Last worn: trench coat, wool jumper, burgundy skinny jeans, leather boots.
Here's what I wore to go out for a walk with DH and baby T:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Scarf: Alexander McQueen skull scarf in light blue
Jumper: Jeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: Jeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoes: Asos Cleo leather boots in black
Expected it to be as cold and rainy as the previous day, but it was actually dry and quite warm in the sun. So left the jacket behind, just needed a jumper and scarf. Was funny wearing this ombre jumper - when I last wore it, I was overdue and wondering when baby would arrive! (He didn't wait long to make an appearance!)
To be completely honest, this is not the outfit I wore all day, it's just what I wore in the afternoon for our walk. We had visitors over so jeans, jumper and a scarf seemed like a nice thing to wear. After getting dressed and cleaning up the house, there was no time for an outfit photo before everyone arrived. I decided to wait and take the photo later in the afternoon when our visitors were gone and we went out for a walk. Right before we were going to leave, baby T decided that he didn't like the blue jeans that I was wearing, and made his opinion clear by peeing all over them! As they were the last pair of clean blue skinny jeans I had, I quickly changed into these purple ones instead so we could go out. I do like blue and purple together! Thankfully the purple jeans survived to the end of the day. Life with baby is many things, but it is always messy ;)
Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarer, blue skull scarf, ombre knit, purple skinny jeans, leather boots.
