Here's what I wore to spend the day with my mum:
Atmos&Here 'Cara' mesh panel tee (on sale!)
Tank: Jeanswest 'Jenni' basic singlet in Hawaii blue
Jeans: Jeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Wore this to spend the day with my mum, and a slightly grouchy baby T! It was a cooler, overcast day so I layered up a little with this sheer stripe tee over a tank. First time I've ever worn this tank without a baby bump! I was in my second trimester last time I wore it.
I really like wearing blue and purple together, I've worn this combination before frequently with these jeans. The one thing I didn't like in this outfit was the stripe tee. It was one of my July purchases, right back when I started sharing my purchases and trying to be more careful to only buy things I'd actually use. Since July, this is only it's third wear. While I do like it with jeans, much more than it worn with maxi skirts, it was a bit warm despite the cooler day. With the weather warming up more too it's unlikely I'll get a lot more days to wear it this year, so it would be sitting in my wardrobe for a long time before it would get worn again. Given the limited ways I can wear it, and the limited time I'll have left to wear it, I don't think it's going to be a frequently reached for piece. I did consider this in my purchase review after wearing it twice, but I held onto it then, thinking I might still get lots of wear out of it. Today it's leaving my wardrobe, going into the donate pile, and serving as a lesson to myself to really think things through before I buy them! Not a great cost-per-wear.
Slowly but surely, I'll work my way through wearing all the items in my wardrobe and end up with a wardrobe full of things I love to wear and can wear in multiple ways!
Last worn: blue tank, sheer stripe tee, purple skinny jeans, Havaianas.
Here's what I wore to meet my mothers group and run errands:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Dogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace layered with vintage gold initial necklace
Shirt: Jeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
Jeans: Sass and Bide 'Three Words' metallic gold jeans
Shoes: Cotton On thin strap thongs in black
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag
Unlike the previous outfit, I loved everything about this one! The sleeves on the shirt were a little frustrating to me through the day, but only as I was in a rush in the morning and hadn't taken the time to roll them up properly.
Wore this shirt for a busy day! Caught up with some of the ladies in my mother's group in the morning, and then had to run around fitting in as many errands as I could. No matter what time I go, there always seems to be a huge line at the bank.....thankfully we got home in time for my mother in law's visit that afternoon.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, mixed print shirt, metallic skinny jeans, Cotton On thongs, Marc by Marc Jacobs baby bag.
I've been trying to share my purchases each month on the blog - to meet a few shopping goals. Reviewing each purchase after I wear it has really helped me too.
This month I didn't buy anything for myself though! I did go a little overboard with baby clothes, but I'm not accounting for that on the blog ;) The only shopping I did was my Missoni purchases for the house and baby T, so I'll share that video for my October purchases.
Not a bad result for October :) I didn't set out to not buy any new clothes or accessories, it just happened as I wasn't too tempted by anything. I've been thinking a lot more about Christmas presents too, so most of my budget has gone to that.
