Postpartum Outfits: Denim and Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

The unexpected continuation of Brisbane's summer temperatures well into autumn meant I was able to wear my denim shorts for much longer than anticipated. I was able to squeeze in another wear of my maternity skinny jeans on a slightly cooler day too though.

What I wore:


JacketNew Look Petite print kimono (on sale, 70% off!)
SingletJeanswest maternity nursing cami
Shorts: Cotton On blue denim shorts
Shoes: slim gold Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a morning stroll by the sea and some fish and chips for lunch. It was a little windy, but still a nice day for a walk and warm enough for shorts. It was lovely to get out and have a change of scenery. The little neighbourhood walks we were doing the first few days are good to get out of the house, but nothing beats looking at and listening to the waves.


Last worn: blue printed kimono, black maternity singlet, denim shorts, gold Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to wearblue printed kimono and green top, black maternity singlet and floral kimono, denim shorts and a tunic dress, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere in the office.





What I wore:


Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey (on sale in black)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

First time I've worn makeup since baby's arrival! When toddler T was born I'd packed my makeup in my hospital bag thinking I'd want to look nice for photos with family in the hospital...this time around I knew it would be a while before I wanted to pick up a makeup brush.

The makeup was because we were having our newborn photoshoot, and I wanted to get some family pictures like we did when toddler T was a newborn. We booked it in for when baby boy was just under 3 weeks old, about the same age his big brother had been. We went with the same photographer we did last time and I highly recommend him if you're in South East Queensland. Although baby boy was extremely unsettled and toddler T decided to act shy in front of a camera for the first time ever, we still got some great shots. More thanks to the skill of the photographer than the willingness of the photo subjects, ha! We rewarded ourselves afterwards with lunch and a trip to Ikea.


Last worn: grey tee, maternity skinny jeans, studded mouse flats, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere (above).

  1. Looking beautiful as ever! And nothing beats the ocean that's for sure. I would just love to be within walking distance to the beach, that would be so perfect and dreamy. Though the way the property market is right now, I may as well invest bayside than further out LOL!

  6. That is such cute idea, getting family pictures taken when they are still so small! We didn't do it last time, but have one professionally taken newborn picture of our son at least.

    1. It's good to have a professional capture it so you can look back on it when they are older I think! And it was nice being able to get some family shots too :)

  10. So now I'm really craving some fish and chips. (; Anyway, outfit number 2 is literally my go to weekend mom look. So yay for us. haha. Also, I purchased another kimono and it arrived yesterday. It's navy and oatmeal colored and has elephants all over it. We're going to the zoo this Friday, so I'm totally wearing it because I'm ridiculous. (;

  19. You look so beautiful in both outfits, Mica! I love that kimono in the first look and those studied flats in the second! Isn't it funny how you much you change in your expectations come baby #2?! I don't have children of my own yet, but everyone that I know that has 2 or more kids say that expectations for delivery and post baby are so different compared to after having the first! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  26. Do you plan on posting any of your photo shoot photos? We did a maternity shoot last week with the same photographer we used for our wedding, and we have another one booked for once the baby actually arrives. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the photos from the first session soon!
