Dresses and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Again, more dress outfits! I've been loving the simplicity of dresses lately, Just throw them on and go, minimal to no accessorising needed!

Here's what I wore to go out with my mother in law:
pink striped maxi dress studded sandals rebecca minkoff yellow swing bag
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceRoie Designs long freshwater pearl necklace with tassel
DressThree Dots stripe maxi dress
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow

Had a very busy morning! Took the time to stop by the library with my mother in law for the little baby rhymes session. Baby T loves spending time with his grandparents and it's so good watching them play together. Also managed to get some Christmas shopping done, as well as getting some essentials for the house.

Decided to dress simply with a maxi dress - and picked this one as I haven't worn it in a while. It was last worn when I was in the second trimester, then the bump got too big to squeeze into it, hehe. I wasn't sure if the dress should stay in my wardrobe or go. It felt a little bit unforgiving with the leftover baby belly for me when I wore it.....but when I looked up how many times I've worn it on the blog and saw it was my first pregnancy outfit with the baby bump on display, I've decided to keep it a little longer, as it's such a special piece. I shouldn't be so self-conscious about the flabby belly, it gave me a beautiful baby!

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, striped maxi dress, Balenciaga sandals, Rebecca Minkoff swing bag.

Here's what I wore to go get my hair cut:
Zara printed tunic dress RM mini MAC Acne Pistol boots spring outfit Queensland
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine

This dress is definitely not going anywhere! It's a keeper! I love this dress, and this outfit. I've worn the exact outfit before in cooler weather, just added a scarf and a slip underneath for a little extra warmth.

Wore this out for a trip to the hairdressers. My first haircut after baby! I managed to find a lovely local lady and mum who was happy for me to bring baby T along to my appointment. Was a bonus to find out that she had a little June baby too, we swapped stories on baby progress and how to handle different situations. Didn't go for a drastic change, as I've been loving my long hair, just a general tidy up. As you can see in this photo, my hair was starting to get really difficult to do anything with. Felt so good to set aside a little time for a trim!

Last worn: Wayferers (above), Zara printed dress, Acne Pistol boots, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

  22. noo don't be self-conscious about a belly at all! I can hardly see one :) the two dresses look great on you! glad you got a haircut too. I got a bit of a trim a few days ago as well...can't really tell outside but it feels so much lighter and better! :)

    1. Yes it's amazing the difference a little trim can make sometimes! Feels much better and I got to keep the length :)

  23. Totally agree. Dresses are the best for effortless style. Both of your dresses are cute. The second outfit worn with the boots and mint bag- perfection. LOVE Zara. XOXO, Elif

  24. No doubt...both these lovely dresses are keepers! So are those awesome handbags! T.

  25. That second outfit is so on point! Love the print dress, mint bag, nude booties...everything!
    Also, flabby belly, whaaaaa? I've never had a baby, and I honestly think you look in better shape than I am! Don't be self conscious, you're beautiful!

    1. haha thank you! Blog pics never tell the full story though, all flattering camera angles! :)

  26. Totally obsessing over your gorgeous colour pop Minkoffs! Love the stripe dress - I've kept the blue shirt the Welshman wore on our first date which he also wore to the birth of our son. Plus the dress I wore on our first date. It will never fit but I don't care!

    Love the dress with the boots too - what a fab look!

    PS - no flab in sight!

    1. haha yes clothing can be such an emotional thing! I've kept a few pieces that will never get worn either, just can't bare to part with them!
