Here's what I wore to go out for dinner:
vintage gold initial necklace
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
Belt: gold embellished belt (gifted from my grandparents)
Shoes: Acne pistol boots in "skin"
Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
It was a really rainy day and had cooled off for a bit when I wore this dress. I'd planned to wear it to dinner a while ago, luckily all I had to do was roll the sleeves down and change to ankle boots for a little extra warmth. As I mentioned on instagram, the last time I'd eaten at the restaurant I wore the same dress, and had a tiny little second trimester baby bump (that I was still hiding in blog photos). This time around, baby T was sitting in a high chair, kicking and chatting away as he ate a meal with us. It was so nice, and wonderful to see how much things have changed! This time last year everyone was excitedly feeling his kicks through my tummy, now everyone can easily see him kicking and jumping around as he picks food off our plates!
I wore this dress during the day as well, just with Converse instead of ankle boots as I quickly had to pop out for the groceries and wanted comfortable flats for that. The style challenge for the day was 'a bracelet you adore but rarely wear' so I wore my little sentimental charm bracelet. I don't wear it every day as I'm worried about damaging or loosing it, it's very special to me. Didn't take a clutch or bag out to dinner, just had everything I needed in the baby bag.
Last worn: printed dress, Acne pistol boots.
Here's what I wore to spend the day with my grandparents:
Dress: French Connection Melanie striped sleeveless dress
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)
This dress is another one I wore back when I was hiding the baby bump! The skirt portion is really roomy. The style challenge for the day was 'wear your mood' and I wasn't sure what I was going to wear, but after a difficult night with baby T I was tired so just went with the simplest option - a dress! I spent the morning shopping with my grandparents and then dropped them off at a friend's place for dinner.
Last time I wore this dress (a year ago!) I commented that I hadn't worn it much and I either needed to wear it more or remove it from my wardrobe. I've been thinking about wearing it for a while, but have always passed it up. When I wore it again, I realised why it's worn so infrequently. It's cute, and perfect for summer, but it's also uncomfortable! The elasticated section inside just seems to rub me the wrong way near the end of the day. I thought last time I wore it it was because of the baby bump or having more sensitive skin when I was pregnant. When I got home in the evening I just couldn't wait to take it off. Definitely leaving my wardrobe, and leaving me wondering why I ever kept it so long....it looks nice on the hanger so it's survived multiple clear-out attempts.
Last worn: stripe dress, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Speedy bandouliere.
