Here's what I wore to go out with baby T:
Tank: Jeanswest brown marle singlet
Skirt: Seafolly runaway maxi skirt in sunset
Shoes: Balenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)
The style challenge for the day was to 'wear a maxi dress or skirt'. Very easy for me! I've heard the rule that petite women shouldn't wear maxi lengths, but I've always liked them. Last year, during my pregnancy, I fell in love with them even more due to the fact that so many maxi skirts have stretchy, elastic waistbands. One of the best clothing features for during and even post-pregnancy. They featured heavily in my favourite pregnancy outfits wrap-up.
I took the chance to wear this skirt and try to stretch myself a little for the challenge, and wear something I don't normally wear. I haven't worn this skirt often, it's part silk so I'm always worried about ruining it! I've had it a little over a year and only worn it three times. (Here, here and here.) Something I should stop trying to 'save' for a good occasion and just wear and enjoy!
Last worn: brown tank, ombre maxi skirt, Balenciaga sandals, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.
Here's what I wore for our Australia Day BBQ:
Atmos&Here 'Isla' ruffle cami in floral print (on sale!)
Skirt: AT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
The style challenge was to wear something 'green and gold'. This top fits the theme nicely, it's got a little green and gold in the floral print. Paired with the white maxi skirt, it's a rather white outfit for life with baby T...but I made it through the day without spilling anything on myself thankfully! We had our annual Australia day long weekend BBQ, and this was a really comfortable outfit for it. Baby T was a little charmer too, he's never seen so many people in our house before but he was smiling and giggling away happily. It was the first time he'd met a few people, so he did really well. I only needed the Havaianas for popping outside in the morning to setup, was barefoot inside for most of the day.
This is the second time I've worn this top since I purchased it in December. I've started reviewing things I buy after wearing it twice to make sure I'm buying things I'll love and actually wear, and not adding more 'just okay' items to my overflowing wardrobe. You can read more about my goals here.
So my purchase review: I'm pleased I bought this top. I know that I have too many tops after doing my wardrobe inventory, but this cami is one that I can wear with maxi skirts as well as denim, so it's perfect! A lot of my other camis are too long to wear untucked with skirts. So far I've worn it both times with a maxi skirt, but I tried it on with jeans and know it looks nice that way too. It would even be good for work (with a cardi to cover up the spaghetti straps). So even though it was an impulse 'nice to have' thing and not something I really needed, I'll still get plenty of wear out of it.
Last worn: floral cami, stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas.
