Sass and Bide Jeans, Alexander McQueen Skull Scarves, Long Sleeve Tees

Happened to wear statement jeans twice in a row! Printed and metallic skinny jeans outfits below, as well as a summary of my August purchases. I liked analysing my July purchases, it influenced my shopping in August.


Here's what I wore to go shopping with DH and baby T:
Printed sass and bide jeans grey zip detail tee magenta alexander mcqueen skull scarf
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfAlexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
Top: Atmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee (New purchase, on sale!)
JeansSass and Bide 'The Archetype' feather print zippora skinnies
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats


Wore this to go out shopping with hubby and baby T. We wanted to pick up a few little toys for baby. He's getting bigger now and wanting to play more, so we stopped in at Target and picked up a little gym for him. It's so cute watching him batting away at the toys dangling down!

Wanted to wear this new long sleeve tee, one of my August purchases. The zipper detail at the hem is really nice, and it made me think of the zipper detail on the jeans, so it seemed right to pair them together. I tried to pose for the photo to get a shot of the zip at the bottom of the jeans, but I failed there! With all the gold zips, the cute metallic gold mouse flats seemed the best shoe choice to continue on the gold theme. And of course, a nice colourful scarf against the grey. Really casual, comfortable outfit.


Last worn: roses skull scarf, Sass and Bide zippora jeans, metallic mouse flats. First time I've worn the tee as it's a new purchase.



Here's what I wore to go out with DH:
metallic gold skinny jeans acne pistol boots striped top skull scarf
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf
TeeJeanswest 'Melanie' Stripe henley in black/coconut (on sale!)
JeansSass and Bide 'Three Words' metallic gold jeans
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"


Another long sleeve top and statement jeans combo! I've been a little predictable with my outfit choices lately. I like how this is basically the same outfit combination as what I wore previously (above), but it looks different enough. Still wearing a skull scarf, prints, and statement jeans. My jeans have been getting a lot of wear lately, but I'm conscious that I don't want to end up in identical looking outfits every day. Trying to take the same basic idea and change a few things about it, so I can get dressed quickly and easily without a lot of thought, but still look like I have some variation in what I'm wearing.

The only thing I didn't like about this outfit was the way I'd rolled up the cuffs of the jeans to have them sit over the boots - it kept coming undone and driving me a little crazy!


Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarers, Alexander McQueen skull scarf, Jeanswest stripe henley, metallic gold skinny jeans, Acne pistol boots.


My August Purchases:


In August I bought a few accessories to help organise the baby bag, and picked up some things in the Iconic sale. A lot of grey clothes! I've returned one dress already, after seriously considering it when it arrived. I'm sure I'll get lots of wear out of everything else I purchased.

Preston raglan stripe dress (returned)
Grey marle jersey pencil skirt
Arizona zip tee
Grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
Rebecca Minkoff 'Shopbop fund' Cory pouch
'Man things' travel pouch
'Guy stuff' travel pouch

  4. I love those gold jeans, even if they didn't stay put! To answer your question, if you have a baby, you need Folex. It's an enzyme stain remover, and works on EVERYTHING. Amazing stuff. I buy it in the grocery store or drug store: white bottle with spray nozzle, and green printing.

  7. I had a chuckle when I read your two pouches for men lol how clever and unique haha. I really love your Marc mouse flats! My toes are abnormally long so closed toe flats are just not that comfy for me but I envy and enjoy looking at others who rock them!

    1. Aww it's a shame you can't wear them, they are such cute flats!

      The puches make me smile when I see them in the baby bag, such a frivolous purchase but I couldn't resist! You know what I'm like with my organisational pouches in bags!

  23. Those gold jeans are amazing! I love them so much, and they look superb on you :-) I'm normally a basics kind of girl, but have been thinking about faux-leather or coated pants for this fall. I'm still a bit unsure about them, but next time I'm out shopping I'm going to try a statement pair as well! xo

    1. It's funny I'd always see them and want to try them on first, and then never get them in the end, but these ones just called out to me and I bought them sight unseen - glad I did, they are so fun! :)

  24. I like BOTH of those pants Mica! Statement jeans look amazing on you.

  25. Well I have to say that these two looks are outstanding - I like the shapes here: the form fitting jeans and loose tops with the chic scarf. You rocked both of them.
