Star Print, Purple Skinny Jeans | Grey Tee, Colour Block Maxi Skirt

Two more Fox In Flats style dare outfits from September!

Here's what I wore to go out for the day with baby T:
NecklaceDogeared silver wishbone necklace
Tee: Star and galaxy print boxy tee from my sisters wardrobe
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs

Took baby T for his regular checkup with our local child health nurse, and then went shopping with my mother in law. The style dare for the day was "borrowed", so I thought this tee was a good choice. It's a hand me down from my sister's wardrobe, from a pile of clothes she let me look through before she donated them. More 'taken' than 'borrowed', but I thought it fit the theme. The print and the label are quite worn so I don't know the brand, she bought it on one of her overseas trips. It's really soft and comfortable, and I like the galaxy print.

As well as looking pretty, the print came in extremely helpful! The day started out well and I even had time for a photo, but of course I ended up running late. Baby had a little burp as I picked him up over my shoulder, just as my mother in law arrived to take us out for the day. As we had an appointment with the nurse, I didn't have time to check to see if more than the floor got a little something on it. No-one said a thing and it wasn't until I got home that I realised I had milky dribble down my shoulder. Turns out, baby spit-up looks a lot like the star and galaxy print from a distance! A very helpful tee for life with baby ;)

Last worn: purple skinny jeans, Havaianas. First time I've worn the tee.

Here's what I wore to go out for coffee and cake:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
Belt: C/O Poppywinkle brown weave belt
SkirtAsos colour block maxi skirt in red (on sale!)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats

This is what I wore when the style dare was "braided". Although my hair is long enough to braid, I'm constantly having a bad hair day as I haven't seen the hairdresser since before baby was born! Thought that a braided belt would be a bitter idea, and maybe a little unexpected.

As the maxi skirt is gathered and has a bit of volume on it, I'd normally go for a more form fitting tee. And that's what I imagined paired with the skirt when I bought it. But I've worn it with voluminous tops before and it looked so good I wanted to wear it again. And you can never go wrong with a grey tee. This is one of my favourite outfits, it was perfect for a morning out and indulging in some cake.

Last worn: Wayfarers, grey tee, braided belt, colour block maxi skirt, metallic mouse flats.

  4. Love your colour block skirt!! Gorgeous. And love the baby burp story. I remember my first son doing that all the time. People would tell me "um there's something on your shoulder" and I'd whip out the wipes :)

    1. baby wipes can clean up so much! I had a burp right down the front of my top the other day, I grabbed a wipe and it cleaned it up enough for me to get home without any stares, haha!
