Printed Maxi Skirts and Colourful Tops, Jeanswest Sale

First up, Jeanswest have a 30% off sale online right now. It includes everything, even all their new spring stock, which I love as it features blue pretty heavily! If you're looking for a pretty update to your wardrobe, check out the sale.


It's only for a limited time, so if you've got your eye on anything I suggest snapping it up quickly! The sale includes menswear too if you're looking for a little last minute something for Father's Day this weekend.



As for what I've been wearing, more maxi skirt outfits! They really are the best option for keeping me warm and still allowing me to wear my knee brace. Which I'm hopeful I'll be able to go without soon. I'm making great progress with the physio working up to getting the full range of movement in my knee again.

What I wore:

blue marle knit jumper navy white stripe maxi skirt LV neverfull bag

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

No jacket! It's officially spring, and this was taken in the last weeks of winter. I'm trying to make an effort to get a last wear out of some of my winter pieces before they are packed away. I did think about wearing a scarf with this also, and in the early morning it would have come in useful, but defintely wasn't needed in the heat of the day - I ended up rolling up the sleeves from the jumper as it heated up.

I was just working from home with a short break in the afternoon to go get a scan and find out how much damaged I'd done to my knee. I'd thought of wearing this skirt as it as the slit up the side, for easy knee access, but the slit is on the other side! I ended up wearing it anyway. It was easy enough to roll up to let the lady look at my knee.


Last worn: blue jumper, striped maxi skirt, studded mouse flats, Louis Vuitton neverfull.

Other ways to wearblue jumper in the office, striped maxi skirt in summer, mouse flats and print mixing, Louis Vuitton neverfull with shorts.

What I wore:

black cardigan red tee tribal Aztec print maxi skirt striped mini MAC bag

Rebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Cotton On black knit wrap cardigan
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
TeeZalora Basics maroon stepped t-shirt
Skirt: Izabel London Aztec print maxi skirt (C/O)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

I felt amazing in this outfit, even if it does look a little odd in the photo. Should have tucked the tee in, so it didn't overwhelm my frame and make my already short legs look really stumpy! I had looked in the mirror that morning and decided it looked okay to leave it loose, a nice relaxed outfit for playgroup with the toddler.

I got this tee and skirt around the same time, so I'd been wanting to wear them together for a while. While it's not the best photo, and seeing it made me wish I'd tucked the top in, I enjoyed wearing it.

  2. How funny that it is officially spring where you live! We just started our transition into fall, but this maxi skirt would still work perfectly. I love how you styled both of these skirts.. You look gorgeous!

  3. Yay Spring for you, and Fall for me. (; It's funny because at some point we will literally be in the same temperatures, wearing similar outfits. You know, the cool Spring and early Fall.

    I think your maxi was very practical for a doctor appointment. Hope the results were too bad. ):

    I too love the second outfit. The red top to compliment the bag was a fantastic idea! Now know how to tuck things next time around. I can't tell you how many times I try to make an outfit work and fail. But that's the fun part. (; Trying to decide what goes well with what. (;

    1. haha yes at the same temperatures I'm cheering about dropping the layers as you're thinking you'll need to layer up! :)

      All went as well as can be expected at the doctors, it's going to be a slow process but at least I know it will heal with time :)

      Yes, it's only clothes in the end, if a combination fails we can wear it differently next time or never again, haha. Always worth giving something a go :)

  6. That second outfit is so beautiful! I often don't realize that I should have tucked in my shirts, too, in certain outfits until I see photographs of myself. LOL!

    1. It's a great site, I buy so much from them! They ship internationally too ;)

      I was involved in a bus accident and my right knee took the brunt of the impact so it's been very sore, but it's ok, I'm getting treatment and it's improving :)
