Here's what I wore to go out shopping:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Dogeared silver wishbone necklace
Top: Jeanswest peach ruffle cami
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
Shoes: Wittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey
The style challenge for the day was 'let's feel feminine today', so I was thinking of wearing one of my cute little pleated skirts. I have a few pleated skirts similar to this and I don't wear them all very often, so it seemed like a good idea to try wear them and see if any should leave my wardrobe.
As it was a hot and humid day, I wanted to wear a lightweight cami too. I liked this peach one, but wasn't sure what skirt it would go with. The pastel colour and ruffles fit the feminine theme well! This skirt was the first one I pulled out to try and I liked how the peach and yellow went together, so decided to wear this out to go shopping in the morning with baby T.
The challenge prompt gave me the confidence to go out and wear something I wouldn't normally have done, so it was a good outfit that way. Although I wasn't sure after looking at the photos, I felt comfortable all day when I was wearing this, I think it came together really well. I've always worn this printed skirt with neutral and rather plain tops, was good to step out of my comfort zone a little. I've decided this skirt is definitely staying in my wardrobe despite only being worn 3 times in 3 years - hopefully I'll be more adventurous with wearing it in the future so it will get lots of wear-time!
Last worn: Rayban Wayfarers, peach ruffle cami, printed pleated skirt, black flats, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.
Here's what I wore to spend the day at home with my mother in law:

Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Baby T had a really grizzly day the day before, after we got home from the shops he wasn't too happy...he then had a bit of a disturbed night. So the next day, all I wanted to wear was comfortable clothes.
When I'd gotten dressed I'd just gone for a comfy tank and shorts, that was all I needed to walk baby and Cooper in the morning. No thought or planning needed! I'm so thankful I'm still on maternity leave so that I can adjust my plans for the day to match baby T's moods most of the time. I'd decided to just skip taking outfit photos for the day and have a lazy day. By lunch time I was feeling a little less frazzled though, and as the style challenge for the day was 'try a print' I realised I could dress up my lazy stay at home tank and shorts outfit by adding the printed kimono jacket. Something to add a little interest to the plain outfit for having a visitor over too.
This kimono is an old sale find that I've never really worn a lot, I'm making more of an effort to wear it to justify keeping it in my wardrobe. I love how it makes a plain outfit look a little more polished...and it came in so helpful on this day to make me look a little more put-together and maybe just a little less tired than I felt. It's staying in my wardrobe as it is an awesome statement piece. I've worn it 8 times now since I've been blogging, not a bad cost per-wear for a $5 sale bargain, but still something I need to continue to wear to justify holding onto it.
Last worn: paisley kimono, grey tank, denim shorts, Havaianas.
