Here's what I wore to go shopping with my sister:
Dress: Atmos & Here Willow printed tee dress (new purchase)
Shoes: Acne pistol boots in "skin"
First wearing of this cute printed dress! I had planned a day out shopping with my sister, and this dress was the perfect thing to wear to take advantage of the warmer spring weather. I was eager to wear it with the ankle boots, as it was the first footwear I had in mind when I saw the dress online. Really liked the combination! Something a little different from a dress and Chucks!
Wanted to buy this dress after seeing it on the Atmos&Here instagram page, but waited to buy it until The Iconic had a 50% off discount code. I try not to pay full price if I can avoid it! The print is available in a shirt dress and a tee as well, but I thought this simple tee dress would get the most wear. Really happy with this addition to my wardrobe :)
Last worn: yellow sunnies, Acne pistol boots. First time I've worn the dress.
Here's what I wore to run errands with baby:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Tee: Jeanswest 'Leila' embroidered top
Skirt: Atmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt (new purchase)
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
This is my first outfit from the Fox in Flats September style challenge! I did mean to join for the whole month, but forgot all about it until half way through. Time got away from me. When I wore this, the challenge for the day was "white out". I'd been looking at this pencil skirt in my wardrobe for a while after I purchased it, and knew I had to at least try to wear it to accomplish my shopping goals.
Not entirely sure what to wear with a pencil skirt when I wasn't taking it to the office, I remembered the style dare and used that for inspiration to wear this white tee. It still looked like something I'd wear to the office though (yey for relaxed dress codes!) so I added the Converse to try make it more casual. I thought it worked well, but baby T didn't agree and the skirt had to be swapped for a pair of shorts later in the day after he got a little messy!
I didn't get around to wearing this pencil skirt twice after I purchased it, as I suspected might happen when I bought it. I just couldn't pass by a good grey pencil skirt on sale, and thought that maybe with the casual fabric I might be able to wear it outside the office. I just can't shake the idea that to me, pencil skirts are office wear. So I've packed this skirt away in the "office wear" box in my wardobe for when I go back to work after maternity leave.
Although I've only worn it once, my purchase review: not the best purchase for right now. I'm glad I bought it, but probably shouldn't have as it doesn't fit my current lifestyle. Although I know I will wear this skirt later, I'm trying to stop buying things I'm not going to wear right away, so I don't end up in a year with a wardrobe full of items still with tags on.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, embroidered white tee, Converse. First time I've worn the pencil skirt.
Linking up with Sequins and Style today.
