As it's a new year, a new start, I've finally gotten around to doing a wardrobe inventory...pretty scary numbers! I'll post about it on Wednesday, and I thought I'd include a link up. I figured I wouldn't be the only person wanting to streamline their wardrobe this year, so hopefully you can take a count of what you own and post about it this week for the link up on Wednesday. The numbers of what I own even surprised me! I'll share more in a couple of days.
Here's what I wore to visit family:
Alexander McQueen skull scarf in light blue
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt: Asos colour block maxi skirt in red (on sale!)
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
Bag: gifted Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)
We had a really relaxed Boxing Day, after a busy Christmas day. We didn't go anywhere, so I didn't get a blog pic, although I did share what I was wearing on instagram as part of the DAREcember style challenge. After a quiet day playing with all of baby's new toys, we ventured out the next day to visit family for some birthday celebrations, and this is what I wore. The rain had set in and brought the temperature down, so I layered up a little. Didn't expect to still be wearing scarves in the middle of summer! Was pleased for the cool change to let me wear them though.
This maxi skirt probably wasn't the best choice, as I was dodging puddles trying not to get the lighter pink section wet! It was a good excuse to use my new Louis Vuitton speedy bag that I got for Christmas though - the damier ebene is perfect in the rain. I got the bracelet for Christmas too, an outfit accessorised with new items that worked with the style challenge theme for the day.
Last worn: Alexander McQueen skull scarf, grey tee, Asos colour block maxi skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats. First time I've worn the bag.
Here's what I wore to spend time with a friend:
Alexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
Tee: Atmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee (on sale!) with pink Supre singlet underneath
Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoes: Acne pistol boots in "skin"
Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)
Hubby invited one of his mates over for lunch and a bit of golf at the driving range. Baby T and I didn't go golfing, but it was nice to spend a little time with his friend. It was another wet and rainy day, so again I took advantage of the cooler temps to layer a bit. I decided to give this bright tank under a zipper detail tee thing a try that I'd talked about last time I wore this grey tee. Very similar to the last time I wore it, just with the different zipper placement and a scarf! Definitely want to try this again next time I wear it, think I've found the purpose for the zippers now ;) The top is still available at the iconic as well if you're thinking about cooler autumn temps already - it's on sale.
The humidity cranked up a bit in the afternoon, so shorts were a good choice. Hubby really liked this outfit too, he complimented me on coordinating the pink scarf and tank together! The style challenge for the day was 'on your head' and I was so jealous of the ladies who participated with a sun hat - I'd been hoping to do that and spend some time by the beach, but ended up just putting a messy bun 'on my head' instead as it was definitely not beach weather.
Last worn: Alexander McQueen pink skull scarf, grey tee, denim shorts, Acne Pistol boots, Louis Vuitton speedy B (see above).
