Layered Spring Outfits: Stripe Tee Dress, Heart Print Scarf, Jeans and Blazer

We had a cloudy and chilly few days which gave me the chance to add some layers (a scarf and a blazer) to my usual outfits.

Here's what I wore to go out with baby T:
Stella McCartney Heart Print Scarf, Stripe tee dress Converse outfit
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black

We had an unexpected cold and rainy spring day (although nothing like what Sydney has been experiencing!) so I decided to wear long sleeves and accessorise with a scarf. This scarf probably won't get much more wear this year as it's quite warm, and the weather is heating up again. It was good to be able to wear it one last time for Spring. I'm also hoping to get more wear out of this dress this year, but again it's a thicker winter fabric and I'm not sure I'll have many more opportunities to wear it now the seasons are changing.

Had to take baby T for a quick checkup at the doctors, so I wanted something easy and cosy as I'd be baby wearing. I still haven't figured out an easy way to carry the baby bag as I wear the baby carrier, I just have to hold it in my hand and it's not the lightest of bags....but for a short trip out I prefer to baby wear rather than take the stroller.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Stella McCartney scarf, striped tee dress, Converse.

Here's what I wore to visit family and go to the shelter:
Pinstripe blazer casual outfit ombre tank skinnies Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran Bag
Jacket: thrifted Valleygirl pinstripe blazer
TankJeanswest 'Macy' ombre tank in 'very berry' 
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

It was a little chilly in the morning so I added the blazer. We left baby T with family while we went out to the animal shelter, so I had the chance to carry a handbag too as I was without the baby bag. I'm so pleased I got to wear this ombre top! I got it for Christmas last year and only had the chance to wear it once before the baby bump got too big for it. The beaded detail is so pretty.

You might have seen my post on instagram about a cute little Guinea Pig that Cooper found (and I rescued from his fluffy jaws!). After asking around the neighbours and putting up signs and leaving letters in mailboxes, no-one stepped up to claim him. We named him Popcorn, but have no idea where he came from.

We adopted Cooper from the Animal Welfare League and I knew that they also re-home Guinea Pigs, so we took Popcorn down to the shelter to find a new home after keeping him a few days. I was a little sad leaving him there, but Cooper didn't appreciate the sudden new addition to the family and I was quite worried he might eat him! They re-homed 89 guinea pigs last year so they will find Popcorn a new home in no time. Cooper is still a little upset by it all and keeps pacing the spot in the laundry where we kept Popcorn. As we stumbled across him in the street, we didn't get a chance to prepare him for the new arrival like we did with baby T.

If you know anyone in the Gold Coast or Brisbane area who might be looking to adopt a little furry family member, check out Popcorn's adoption details at the AWL! :)

Last worn: striped blazer, ombre tank, skinny jeans, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag.

  1. In love with your second outfit, that blazer and the light grey tones with the pink is so perfect together!! We are just hitting fall and winter will hit us hard anytime so I envy your nice weather.

  2. I love what you wore to visit your family Mica, the top is just so cute and pretty and keep warm <3

  3. Great post! I love these outfits on you~ The colors are all so nice together ^^
    ~Kiyomi <3

  4. You know I love that Stella McCartney Heart Scarf and it makes me happy every time you wear it, but seriously that second outfit is stunning. I love, looooove the ombre pink top - so cute.

    Have a great weekend, Mica!

  5. i can't believe that cooper found a guinea pig! how lucky that he found popcorn instead of a wild animal. i hope that he finds a good home! loving the mix of all the blues in your first outfit and your ombre top is very pretty!


    1. I'm hopeful he will find a good home soon! I couldn't believe it when Cooper stumbled across him either, such an eventful walk, haha!

  6. LOVING your scarf, it's amazing and so bright and full! That ombre top of yours is fantastic as well as that blazer that your rocking! :)

  7. I hope Popcorn will find a loving home real soon! I hate it when people abandon animals. How can anyone do things like that? My two chinchillas have been with me for over 10 years and I would never give them up and hope to accompany them until the end of their time. Animals are lives and people need to realise that and understand a life is a commitment and responsibility! *p.s. ok your ombre colour top looks lovely! Lol sorry I almost forgot to comment on that <3 *

    1. I can't believe someone would just abandon him - I was so sure he was lost, but being unable to find his least it has a happy ending if he was abandoned, he will stay at the shelter until he finds a new home :) Agree with you that animals are a lifetime commitment! :)

  8. Oh Mica you are always so appreciative and sweet about thanking me for hosting. That is so nice of you! I love both of your adorable ensembles today. Don't we just love super scarves. They are amazing!!!

    1. very true! I just love scarves in general though, haha!

  15. Love all of that blue on you. It's such a fabulous color! The print of your scarf is so nice!

  16. I love the ombre top, it is beautiful. I am still looking for my first ombre piece. The pinstripe blazer is a great find, can't believe it was originally from Valleygirl.

  17. I love both looks; now that blue scarf looks super comfy and the pink ombré blouse is so sweet.
    All the best wishes in the new week.

  22. I'm such a scarf lover so that Stella McCartney print is my favourite. But, I adore the second outfit completely, as it feels much lighter and you look lovely. Hopefully Popcorn will get a home soon.

    1. He did! He got rehomed really quickly, such a little cutie! :)

  23. Great top, it suits you very well. I hope you have a nice day :)

  24. Love that dress and jacket with ombre tank! Looks so good together.

  25. I love your Cons with your skirts and dresses - great look. Aw, so glad you took care of Popcorn! I grew up with several guinea pigs - they are sweet pets.

    1. They are so sweet! I wish we could have kept him, but Cooper wasn't too pleased with him in the house. And at least at the shelter he was safe from the neighbourhood snake until he found a home, hehe! :)
