Here's what I wore to go out with baby:
Alexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
Tank: Sass and Bide 'Musical Genius' tank
Jeans: Jeanswest 'shale' super skinny jeans
Shoes: Cotton On thin strap thongs in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Nicole by Nicole Miller bracelet
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC
The style dare for the dare was 'metallica' so I wanted to wear my cute little silver mini MAC bag, with this cute little cuff bracelet I won from a giveaway on Style of Sam. You can see a better pic of my accessories here on instagram. As it was another rainy and cloudy day, I decided to wear jeans. That was not a great idea as the humidity started to climb really quickly and I wished I'd worn shorts or a skirt instead! I did like the layering of the scarf and tank together though.
Last worn: Alexander McQueen Roses skull scarf, Sass and Bide tank, skinny jeans, thongs, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.
Here's what I wore to have friends over:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus necklace in pop
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress (on sale!)
Shoes: Nine West silver strap sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey
The style challenge for the day was 'slick hair', so I used my hair straightener. Of course by mid-morning when I took pictures the humidity had gotten to it and it's not as sleek as it was at the start of the day, haha. I always feel like I've put a bit more effort into an outfit when I straighten my hair, as it takes a while to do. I don't do it as often as I used to now, partly because baby makes it hard to have enough time to get all 'dolled up' each day, and partly because I've gotten lazy and used to not doing it!
I had some friends round for a little playdate with their son and baby T. Didn't quite work as their son is much older than baby T, although he did enjoy chasing Cooper and carrying him around and trying to carry baby T around too, hehe. I wore the bag and sandals for when I popped out quickly in the morning, but didn't need them in the afternoon when I stayed home. These sandals have never been the most comfortable when I wear them, and so this was their last wear to see if I would keep them. They are leaving my wardrobe, as the straps rub a little after a long period of wearing them.
Last worn: Wayfarers, Jeanswest printed dress, silver sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.
My 2015 Wardrobe Inventory
Ever since reading a list on a (now deleted) blog about how many items they had in their wardrobe, I've been thinking about doing a closet inventory of my own. I did attempt one a while back but after realising I had 50 dresses I had a little freak out over how much stuff I had and decided not to count the rest. As I'm being more open with my spending on the blog, I thought I'd finally count everything and be more open with the size of the wardrobe my shopaholic ways have resulted in! Not included in the count is things like trackie dacks, layering/breastfeeding singlets, oversized hoodies for walking the dog in winter, pyjamas, maternity clothes that only worked when I had a baby belly.
32 bags (including clutches)
18 shoes (including 3 pairs of heels)
6 thongs (flip flops)
138 tops (including shirts, tees, tanks, long sleeve tees, etc....and a worrying 14 grey tees!)
27 skirts (including 8 maxi skirts)
40 dresses (including 6 maxi dresses)
266 items of clothing
That is the whole scary story. I know that 40 scarves is a lot, but honestly I thought it would be even more! It seems like an awful lot of maxi skirts, but I do wear them frequently. I'm amazed by how many tops I own, and jackets! Cardigans are something I can never get rid of - they aren't on the blog a lot as I usually just wear them in the office to cover up in the air con. I thought with breastfeeding I'd wear them more, and I did a few times in the early days when my 'uniform' was a cardi and singlet, but nowhere near enough to justify having so many. Still can't believe I have enough grey tees that I could wear a new one every day and not run out of outfits for two weeks! Eek!
No wonder I have no room in my wardrobe....2015 will be the year of the wardrobe clean out, in earnest this time! I think the scariest part might be the fact that this is after I downsized from having an entire room for my clothes to having to squeeze everything into one wardrobe and a garment rack.
Have you done a closet inventory post? Or do you know how many things you own? Maybe you have a particular type of item you have a lot of that you're focusing on cutting down on this year? Tell me your numbers or link up your closet inventory posts below, I'd love to know!
