Jeans and a Tee with Blazer and Scarf, Statement Metallic and Oversize Tee

Here's what I wore to go to a BBQ and spend the evening with the in-laws:
skinny jeans oversize tee boots blazer and scarf
Jacket: Zara black blazer
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs scarf in Island pine-print
TeeFrench Connection oversized khaki green tee
JeansJeanswest blue skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan


Last time I wore this tee I was in my third trimester, and enjoying the fact that the oversize style still fit over the baby bump. It was not one of my favourite pregnancy outfits though, I much prefer the tee worn lose and oversized with a bit of a drape, not all stretched out over a baby belly. Not all my regular clothes looked great as maternity outfits, but I had fun trying them out anyway.

Added the blazer to dress up this jeans and tee outfit a little for spending the afternoon with the in-laws, and to help keep me warm in the rain. I have a lot of blazers, but I don't think any has gotten as much wear as this Zara one! It's a jersey material that doesn't feel too formal, but dresses up a casual outfit nicely. My sister has a similar blazer and I've always loved the way she wears hers, so I was pleased to find this piece when op-shopping. Definitely a good purchase, one of those pieces that makes me understand why so many people have "a classic blazer" as one of their must-have wardrobe items.


Last worn: Zara blazer, Marc Jacobs scarf, khaki tee, skinny jeans, Asos leather boots.



Here's what I wore to go out for a walk and spend time with a visitor today:
sass and bide metallic skinny jeans wildfox skeleton tee converse
TeeWildfox Skeleton black tee with long sleeves (with Kmart black tank layered underneath)
JeansSass and Bide 'Three Words' metallic gold jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black


Trying to wear these awesome metallic jeans a little more casually, dressed down with an oversized top and Converse. Didn't need to be too dressed up, as I had a quiet day at home with Cooper and baby T, with a visitor in the afternoon. Was looking through my wardrobe for something warm to wear to pair with the jeans when I saw this little-worn tee.

Haven't worn this tee in over a year! I wore it a few times when I bought it in 2012, before the weather got too warm, and since then I've only worn it twice. I think the time I wore it to Fright Night at Movie World for Halloween was the best possible opportunity it could be worn. Not something I wear enough to justify keeping in my wardrobe, although it is incredibly comfortable for lounging around at home in.


Last worn: Wildfox skeleton tee, metallic skinny jeans, Converse.

  17. That blazer is classic indeed. Really like how it fits you, and the rolled-over cuffs give it a semi-formal look. The colourful scarf adds fun and interest to the outfit.

  20. Mica, I would totally wear both of these outfits in a heartbeat. The first one looks so polished and classic chic. I couldn't agree more that a good blazer is a staple piece that will last and never go out of style. I also really like this scarf you are wearing, the colors are so pretty! In the second outfit you look SO... Soo... cool! I just love the metallic jeans (I have a similar pair actually!) and how you dressed it down with the quirky sweater and cool converse. Just awesomeness all over the place ;)

  21. How did your BBQ with the in-laws go? you look great! I love that zara blazer. My black blazer is a little too corporate for my liking! I think I'll have to invest in a more versatile one :) xx

    1. this is a jersey material so much easier to wear outside the office - I think that's where I've went wrong before! The BBQ went well despite the rain - we were under cover! :)
