Here's what I wore to host my mother's group:
House of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress (on sale!)
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
A nice comfortable but still slightly dressed up outfit for hosting my mother's group! Each week, a few of us mummies meet up at someone's house, and I offered to host it this time around.
I like how easy maxi dresses are to wear, but how they make it look like you put a bit of effort in! I spent most of the morning cleaning and preparing for everyone to come over, and the dress was comfortable enough for that too. Not sure I'll be hosting the ladies again for a while though, Cooper was most displeased that I didn't let him play with everyone's babies and only let him watch from the sidelines! Baby T was less grouchy than Cooper, haha!
Last worn: blue maxi dress, Havaianas.
Here's what I wore to go out shopping:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Dress: Pearl black and white jersey maxi dress
Shoes: Balenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Another maxi dress! Went out to the local library with baby T in the morning, and then had some errands and shopping to do in the afternoon. A maxi dress seemed like the best idea to beat the heat.
This dress isn't staying in my wardrobe though. I'm trying to reduce the size of my wardrobe so it's full of pieces I love to wear. I want to wear everything I own, not have overflowing wardrobe(s!) full of pieces that never see the light of day.
This dress sounds so good - a black and white printed maxi dress, really practical! However it wasn't very nice to wear this time. The stretchy little band that sits across the waist got a little stretched out over the baby bump when I last wore it I think, it kept sagging and flapping around all day. I could remove the band, it's stitched on, but I don't like the look of the dress without it as much as I do with it.
So after debating getting it altered or just letting it go, I've decided to just donate this dress. Someone else won't be annoyed by the band, or will be happy to take it off. I bought the maxi dress back in 2010 from Asos, and worn it 6 times in the past couple of years since I've had the blog, so it's had a good run!
Last worn: Ray-Ban wayfarers, printed maxi dress, Balenciaga studded sandals.
