Here's what I wore to go out for dinner:
Atmos & Here Willow printed tee dress
Shoes: Asos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
Simple outfit - pretty dress and ankle boots! We had the chance to go out for dinner with some friends, it was so nice catching up and introducing baby T to some new-to-him faces. We've been a little unsure about going out in the evenings with baby but it was good to finally do it. Evening time is usually witching hours/arsenic hours and babies can be a bit unsettled. Baby T was a champ though, full of smiles and giggles and he perfectly timed his nap with dinner time. It helped that dinner was arranged around baby's schedule, and we were close to home if we needed to rush away.
The only downside to the evening was when there was an "explosion" over my dress. While baby T had a change of clothes, I didn't! A lesson for me to have something in the baby bag for me in case of emergencies. Also made me grateful I'd picked this dress to wear. The print on this dress hid the wet patches quite well from where I'd tried to wash it in the sink. It helped hiding behind the table too. Managed to make it through dinner without any more mishaps, but I have to say we did leave shortly after!
As it's the second time I've worn the dress, and I'm reviewing all my purchases the second time I wear them:
I love this dress! I've only worn it with ankle boots so far so I'm not massively restyling it each time I wear it...but it's such a nice easy piece to wear. I like the print and I'm really pleased I purchased this, it is perfect for Spring. It is definitely going to get a lot more wear.
Last worn: floral tee dress, Asos leather ankle boots.

Couldn't resist checking out the Missoni for Target collection! Took the chance to get out of the house with baby T to return something and to stop by our local Target. I didn't buy any clothes or accessories for myself, just picked up some things for baby and the house. Despite not having a set budget in mind but I think I did pretty well and I'm pleased with what I got, our local Target had loads. I did think I might pick up a scarf at least for myself, but it seems other people had that idea too. I saw one lady take the entire rack of scarves I'd spotted and add them to her overflowing trolley! It was then I decided I'd shopped enough and should back away and let the more dedicated people have their fun.
Carried a handbag for the first time in a while. I've now got a handy little hook for the stroller for me to clip bags onto, so I'm hoping to start carrying my handbags again even when I'm out with baby T. It's helpful on days when I'm out and about and want more than just a wallet and phone, and easy to do on days I have the stroller with me.
As it's the second time I've worn this dress, my purchase review:
I bought this dress to try out the drop waist trend, and it's been very fun to wear. I'm still not sure that this is really 'me', but I am going to keep it and continue to wear it. I don't see myself wearing and loving this dress as much as the printed t-shirt dress above though, so it's definitely one of those purchases I bought without really thinking what the need was in my wardrobe.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, skull scarf, stripe drop waist dress, Converse, Balenciaga day bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag.
