Grey Tee, Black Skater Skirt, Patent Mouse Flats | Peplum Tank, Purple Skinny Jeans

Black two days in a row! Black and grey and then a little more cheerful with black and purple.

Here's what I wore to visit a friend:
Monochrome grey oversized tee jacquard skater skirt patent mouse flats
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
TopAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
Skirt: Jeanswest 'Helena' black jacquard skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats in black patent leather


Baby T and I went out despite the hot day to visit a friend and chat for a bit. So nice to be able to wear this skirt again, it's from the "after baby arrives" box I added clothes to as I outgrew them during pregnancy. It was mainly full of skirts and work dresses.

This skirt was something I wore in the early stages of pregnancy to help hide my tiny baby bump in the office. The little flare of the skater skirt style helped me feel less self-conscious about my belly. At the time the first trimester baby bump felt so huge, haha! Of course by the time baby T arrived, I was overdue and feeling very, very large!

Last time I wore this skirt I paired it with a grey tee also (and the same shoes!), but added a bright handbag for a bit of colour. Kept it monochrome this time, as all my things were in the black baby bag.


Last worn: Ray Ban Wayfarers, grey v-neck teejacquard skater skirt, patent mouse flats.



Here's what I wore to catch up with the ladies in my mother's group:
Zalora black peplum tank purple jeanswest skinny jeans Aussie Spring Outfit
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
TopZalora basics ruffle hem tank in black (on sale)
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs


Another catch up with some ladies in my mother's group at the local library. They have a weekly session for babies and it's fun to go there and sing some songs with baby T and chat with the other mummies outside of our regular meetings. Plus, it gets baby and I out of the house again, something that's really needed some days ;)

It wasn't too hot in the morning, so I wore jeans. Also stopped by that beautiful flower-shedding tree again to try get a better picture when walking Cooper. I prefer this angle over the last picture in this spot. Although really it might just be due to there being more flowers on the ground this time around!

I wanted to wear a little something to add a bit of interest to the peplum tank, and I picked out a scarf in the morning. However, by the afternoon (when I took this pic) I'd already removed the scarf as it was getting a bit warm. I do think this outfit would have looked better with a scarf though. What do you think?


Last worn: Wayfarers (see above), peplum tank, purple skinny jeans, Havaianas.

  4. The catch up with the ladies sounds like lots of fun, I'm glad to see you are enjoying yourselves! I rarely pair black and purple together, but I really love how it looks, I should definitely give it a go! And the mouse flats you are wearing in your first outfit is definitely one of my favorite shoes of yours ;)

  21. I would absolutely adore some bunny flats actually! If you ever come across any, let me know!

    Our wardrobes change and adapt so much over the years. I have so many office pieces that I will probably never wear again but are too lovely to pass on. I've teamed the jackets with jeans and worn some of the Cue dresses and memory taffeta skirts with sandals during the day. I must get ruthless!

    1. I know, I need to be more ruthless too. it's so hard when you love a piece and want to keep it, even if it doesn't match with your current lifestyle!
