Wore this maxi dress out to the babies group at the local library to catch up with all the other mummies. I like wearing maxi skirts and dresses to this event each week as when I sit down on the floor with baby T, the dress makes an impromptu mat for baby T, if I've forgotten to include one of his little tummy time rugs in the baby bag!
This wasn't how I originally wore the maxi dress though. I usually tuck the elastic panel in under itself when I wear this dress (like here), and belt it so it stays in place. It makes it the perfect length for me. I was in such a rush that morning that I forgot to belt it. So I stood up holding baby T, and nearly tripped on the hem of the dress as I did so. I quickly tied a knot in the bottom of the dress to keep it off the floor, and wrapped a hair tie around it to keep it in place. I actually kinda liked the look when I got home! Not the most perfectly executed knot, but it stopped me tripping over myself and it was nice to wear this dress a little differently from the usual! Held in place when I went grocery shopping afterwards too.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, tie dye maxi dress, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs little Ukita bag.

Another Jeanswest maxi dress! I like how easy maxi dresses are to style - you can wear them casually or dress them up a little. Wore this out to hubby's company's Christmas party. The venue and dress code was a bit more relaxed than previous years, but since I've always worn a maxi dress to this event each year, I figured that there was no need to break with tradition by wearing anything else! I spotted quite a few other maxi dress wearers there too, it's always a good choice for a party.
I wasn't sure about the black Chanel bag with the blue dress, but as I so rarely get the chance to get dressed up for an evening now with baby T, I thought it best to wear the bag when I knew it would be safe from inquisitive little hands ;) Just realised that I wore this handbag on my last evening date with hubby - our anniversary dinner the week before baby T arrived! I did try wear it frequently when I first got it, but I think if I want it to stay in good shape for another 30 years (it's an oldie!) then it's best to keep it to special occasions.
Last worn: printed maxi dress, Balenciaga sandals, vintage Chanel flap bag.
