Postpartum Outfits: Stripes and Maxi Skirts

I've been eager to get back into my regular wardrobe post-baby. My third trimester capsule wardrobe was fun, but I really was looking forward to having a bigger selection of clothes again.

Unfortunately, at two weeks postpartum you can't quite fit into everything in your wardrobe. Stretchy fabrics are the way to go! They are extremely comfortable too.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Postpartum outfit stretchy stripe tee maxi skirt Balenciaga bag

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
TeeAtmos&Here oversized stripe tee
SkirtJeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Just a heads up that I will be wearing these tees a lot! I have this striped tee in black and burgundy and grey...when I see something I like I buy multiples. They are super soft and don't need ironing so they are on high rotation at the moment. Plus the stretchy factor works nicely post-baby with all the extra curves to be covered.

Wore this out to take baby boy to a quick checkup, and to grab some lunch.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, striped tee, black maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga Tempete Day bag.

SkirtAsos colour block maxi skirt in red
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Was so happy to be able to wear this maxi skirt again, even if I did go the very boring route and wear it with a breastfeeding singlet. This skirt was too long worn under the baby bump and never looked right worn above the bump so I've not been able to wear it since October.

Wore this out to attend a child health clinic appointment with baby boy. I was feeling happy and confident in my outfit until I looked down halfway through the day and saw baby had added a little something to it....thankfully after I took photos, but sadly while we were out in public!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers (above), breastfeeding singlet, colour block maxi skirt, Havaianas (above), Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere.

Other ways to wearblack singlet and black skirt, colour block maxi skirt for a night out, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere and a wrap dress.

  3. You're looking amazing for two weeks in! I'm the same as you with buying multiples of things that work, it just makes sense. Also that second skirt is so cheery! Shame about the extra baby decoration but I'm sure nobody noticed :)

  4. Two weeks? I am two months postpartum and don't fit all my clothes, and I guess it will stay that way for a few more months.
    The maxi skirt has gorgeous colors.

  7. You are looking radiant! Honestly maxi skirts are girls best friends! It can pretty much fit into any occasion! When it gets a bit cooler I usually wear longer socks underneath and pair with a pair of low heeled booties :)

    1. Yes, it's another tricky transition, trying to give up the maternity clothes yet not being able to fully fit back into your normal wardrobe!

  10. Still, as you tackle your in-transition post baby bod, you dress better than me on Sundays. (; lol For real. These outfits look rad and who cares if you repeat some super comfy tees. Don't tell anyone, but I totally do it too. (; Have a great weekend Mica!
