Here's what I wore to spend the day with my mum:
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus necklace in pop
Dress: French Connection Meadow jersey maxi dress in black
Shoes: Asos 'five star' leather sandals
Bag: Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete
I've been looking at this black maxi dress in my wardrobe thinking it needs another wear...so a trip down the coast with my mum seemed like a good day to wear it out. After noticing I don't make the most of the neutral dresses I have in my wardrobe, I've been trying to wear them more. I added the pretty scarf in my hair too for something a bit different, and as I was feeling a little 'meh' about my hair. Due for a trim again!
The teething necklace was a must-have. Baby T's been very cranky lately with teething! I loved how easy and simple this outfit was, but it looks like I put a bit of effort in and not like I've been dealing with a grizzly baby for the past few days. Maxi dresses are awesome.
Last worn: black and white scarf, black maxi dress, Asos leather sandals, Balenciaga tempete day bag.
Here's what I wore to run errands:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Dress: Asos grey skater dress (on sale!)
Shoes: Acne pistol boots in "skin"
Bag: Chloe Marcie medium hobo bag in Nut (on sale!)
This is what I put together for my 'day without baby'. It was baby T's first day at day care! Like most mums, I've found it tricky trying to find a place I liked that also has space to take another baby. When a spot opened up at my ideal centre, I took it. It was available a little earlier than I needed as I'm not back at work yet, but it's meant I've been able to go back to work sooner than expected.
I tried to see the positive side and focus on all the things I'd be able to do while baby T was playing at day care, but I'll be honest, I felt a bit lost without him! I was really relaxed in our morning routine, not really wanting to drop him off too soon...and of course I went back earlier than planned in the afternoon to pick him up! He didn't mind though, after the orientation day we had he's really happy with the ladies at the centre, and enjoys playing with the other babies. I think I took the day harder than he did! I did enjoy not having to time my morning errands (groceries and post office) around baby's naps and feeds, but it felt so lonely being just Cooper and I in the afternoon. Used the quiet house to film a couple more videos for my youtube channel, which has been a little neglected lately.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, skater dress, Acne pistol boots, Chloe Marcie hobo bag.
