Grey Tees, Printed Kimonos, Denim Maternity Shorts and Louis Vuitton Speedy B Bag

There have been some great entries in my sunglasses giveaway! Don't forget to check it out and enter as it ends Friday.


Over the summer, I've found I've worn very similar outfits so I've had no problems grouping pictures together to post. Shorts and kimonos have become a favourite with me this season, and you can't go wrong with a good grey tee!

What I wore:

Away From The Blue | Summer Pregnancy Outfit grey tee denim shorts kimono LV Speedy B bag

AwayFromTheBlue Blog | Louis Vuitton damier ebene speedy bandouliere 30 handheld
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers (on sale!)
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeJeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I've mentioned before that if I'm wearing a top in one colour, I'll usually wear a jacket in a different colour that doesn't match. But after trying a black tank and black cardigan together for the Fox in Flats Style dare, I wanted to give it a try again with the grey tee and grey kimono. I really liked the way this looked.

The style challenge was 'lazy days' and I think this outfit nailed it as reaching for this kimono is starting to become an easy, lazy option, ha!

Other ways to wearpattern mixing with striped tank and printed kimonopink and grey tee and printed shorts, denim shorts and a maxi cardigan, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere in the office.

TeeMarc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
ShortsJeanswest Georgie maternity boyfriend shorts (available in non-maternity also)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'I forgot I had this' which doesn't really happen in my wardrobe now. After the wardrobe detox session I had, I cut down on a lot of what I own and I know everything that's in my wardrobe. I do have pieces that haven't been worn in a while though, like this kimono and the grey tee, so decided to wear them to meet the challenge instead.

Perfect for working from home and attending an OB appointment in the afternoon.


Last worn: Choies red printed kimono, Marc Jacobs tee, maternity denim shorts, Havaianas (above), Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag (above).

Other ways to wear: layering a kimonogrey tee layered up for winter, maternity denim shorts and a green tee, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere with winter layers.

  1. These look fabulous on you. I wish I could werk a kimono but sadly no. I also need to start bringing more colour into my wardrobe too. Adding a pop with grey works a treat

  3. I love kimonos! They are such a nice light coverup for summer!

  4. I have to admit when I wear my kimonos (just 2 or 3) I always tie them and don't wear them open. I like the simplicity of a tee and a kimono worn as an open cardi.

  6. Hey, at least in you're repeating similar looks, you know they work right? Surprisingly grey with grey does pull quite nicely together. I love tops that work as the perfect undershirt. I have a few I like, but have yet to find the ultimate layering top. Once I do, I swear I'll buy one in every color. (;

  13. Lovely outfits as always, my darling! Both of these look very comfortable and casual, and I really like how you added a pop of colour with the kimonos. :) I love the colourful, floral pattern on the first one! And it seems that your cute puppy was up for posing today, haha, he's looking so adorable and cuddly as always! <3

  16. Once the weather gets better, I will be investing on kimonos, they just look so pretty! A kimono can make a big difference on the way your outfit looks. Your dog is such a poser (first photo haha).

  27. Kimonos seem like the perfect maternity layering item, since you can of course easily wear them postpartum.

    1. Yep! They will come in so helpful post-baby as cover-ups that are easily washable when baby inevitably adds a little something to them :P

  30. It's amazing how a kimono or jacket can really pull an outfit together and give it that extra bit of panache - if you can bear to wear it in the summer heat!

    1. Definitely! I make sure any I buy are cotton or viscose so that they aren't too warm at all, nice and breathable. I had a polyester one once it was so hard to wear as it was just too warm! I got rid of it!

  34. I love both necklaces you're wearing here, they really bring the whole thing together. I am feeling the need for a wardrobe detox session, what with the new year and all that. Any tips you can share?

    1. I did a post a while back about my wardrobe detox expereince that might help! :) Basically, find a good impartial third party - even if you don't pay a professional, you need another opinion to help you decide what stays and what goes. It's the only way I was able to make any progress on decluttering, and it gave me lots of new outfit ideas for old favourites too.
