Here's what I wore to spend the day with DH and baby T:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Tee: Atmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee (on sale!)
Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoes: Acne pistol boots in "skin"
With the spring weather heating up, I wanted to quickly take advantage of the chance to wear shorts and boots together! I really like the combination of shorts and ankle boots, but it's not something you can wear year-round. I actually think I missed my chance, I was getting a little warm with the long sleeved tee in the heat of the day. Maybe with a tank next time.
After I had worn this, I stumbled across Alice from Happiness at Mid-Life wearing a similar designed top, but layering a bright tank underneath and having the zips undone to show the colourful tank peeking through. Such a great way to wear a zip-detail top! Definitely want to give it a go with this tee as soon as we have a cooler day.
Last worn: grey zip detail tee, denim shorts, Acne Pistol boots.
Here's what I wore to go out for lunch:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Shirt: Jeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal (on sale!)
Skirt: French Connection 'Abby' twisted skirt
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats in black patent leather
I bought this skirt back in the second trimester when I felt I was running out of nice pencil skirts to wear to the office. Most of my pencil skirts are fixed waist, only a few were elasticated, so this elasticated waist skirt seemed like a great idea. Despite only managing to wear it a few times before the baby bump got too big, I also reasoned I could get my money's worth by wearing it casually as well after baby arrived. I felt rather over-dressed in this outfit though, felt much too similar to something I'd wear to the office. It's almost an identical outfit to the previous time I wore it to work, just with a different coloured top. Same shoes and everything! I didn't realise that when I wore it, just when I looked up the last wearing of the skirt.
While it was great to get this skirt out again and wear it without a baby bump, I think I'll need to try harder next time I wear it to dress it down and make the look a little less office-like. I have such a hard time wearing pencil skirts outside of work, as I wear them so casually in the office anyway! Do you have any ideas for how to make it more casual? A tank or denim jacket was suggested last time, maybe I should try that next time.
Last worn: teal henley, striped skirt, patent mouse flats.
