Printed Scarves: Grey Tee, Purple Skinny Jeans, Black Maxi Dress

Sharing what I wore to go to some mums and bubs meet ups with other local mums :)


Here's what I wore to go to a mummy meet up in the park:
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfAsos pastel Aztec print scarf (on sale!)
TeeAtmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee (on sale!)
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


I wore this pretty pastel print scarf with purple last time too! I think the pastel colours pair nicely with purple. The previous few times I've worn this scarf I wondered if its big blanket size was too overwhelming on me, but it came in handy for a rather chilly trip to the local park with baby. The slightly windy morning got progressively colder and windier as the day went on, leading to the mummy meet up in the park being postponed and a cold baby T and I stopping for a nice hot chocolate on the way home to warm up again. I really should have worn a jacket, but it didn't seem too cold when I got ready so I thought the scarf would be enough.

Although I still think the scarf is rather large on my petite frame, it does look nice with the skinny jeans and does keep me warm :) At $7.60, it's not a bad cost-per wear even if I don't wear it a forth time this year.


Last worn: Ray-Ban wayfarersAsos pastel scarf, grey tee, purple skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs baby bag.



Here's what I wore to go to my mother's group today:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood
DressFrench Connection Meadow jersey maxi dress in black
Shoes: Wittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


This was taken a few days after the outfit photo above, and the cold and wind had made way for a really nice sunny day. I even ended up taking the scarf off on the way home in the hot afternoon.

This scarf seems to have come to a lot of my mother's group meet ups! I wore it to go to the previous mothers's group meeting also. I thought about that as I put the outfit together, but decided to wear the scarf anyway. I really liked this scarf worn with my purple maxi dress, so although it's not very original, I had been looking forward to repeating the combination again with this black maxi dress.

It's inevitable with a finite budget and wardrobe space that I'll repeat certain combinations and items of clothing. It's a fact of life for most people :) I am pleased to see that I'm coming up with other outfit combinations that aren't jeans and a tee though. For a long time that combination made up the majority of my outfits, and I was a little worried I might end up choosing nothing but denim during my maternity leave. While I do slip back into the old jeans and a tee habit now and then, I'm trying to make the most of my wardrobe and wear more of what I own.


Last worn: wayfarers (see above), paisley print snood, jersey maxi dress, black flats, MbMJ baby bag (see above).

    1. Yes I love being able to see the last time I wore things and try to wear them differently the next time! (Or in this case, like it so much I wear it similarly again haha!)

  29. I always love your great scarf collection! I bought a giant blanket scarf last year and ended up returning it because it was just too hot around my neck. It does not get cold enough for a blanket scarf in Southern CA.

    Thank you so much for linking up to TBT Fashion and I hope to see you this Thursday.
