Plain Henley Tops, Printed Jeans and Cosy Cardis: Winter SAHM Style

A plain top, printed jeans, a neutral cardigan and Converse makes an easy stay at home mum winter outfit.

I have a few long sleeve henley tops I packed away with my winter things that I've been trying to make an effort to wear again. In the last official month of winter I'm not sure I'll have many more chances to wear them!

What I wore:

Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

If you saw my Insta stories you might know I was lucky enough to be given a few new teething necklaces by Dee from Nibbly Bits. This peach feather pendant is one of the ones I got, it goes nicely with a lot of outfits. I've shared my love for teething necklaces before, so I'm thankful to add some new ones to my wardrobe!

I love these pink leopard print jeans - I tend to wear them with grey a lot as I like pink and grey together but they look just as good with other neutrals like this black Henley. I actually ended up taking the cardigan off during the day - we went out to the local Quandamooka festival. While I didn't try a BBQ roo, croc or emu kebab we did enjoy walking around and meeting some of the boys' friends from daycare.

Unfortunately our lovely morning out turned into a stressful afternoon with an unexpected doctor's visit for Baby Boy - I was grateful for having the teething necklace on as it kept him amused in the waiting room.

Why I wore it:

A busy day! It was a little chilly in the morning when I wore this so I added the scarf. I thought this one wouldn't compete too much with the print on the jeans. While I loved the pop from the teal henley with the black and grey, I wasn't too sure about the scarf. Kept me warm though so met its purpose!

Had our local ABA meeting in the morning, but sadly we had to leave early to go to another doctor's appointment for baby boy. It's a shame as it was a good discussion topic too - talking about birth experiences and the first breastfeed. While my baby days are behind me, I think birth stories are fascinating, so many different ways our little ones make their arrivals into the world!

I'm so incredibly lucky to be able to return to work part time, but I am finding it difficult on my days off to cram everything in - the time goes so quickly! I know we will hit a rhythm soon. With winter coming to an end hopefully we will have less sickness and doctor visits too. I love our GP and everyone there at the surgery but it would be nice not to see them all so often.

How You Can Wear It:

If you're not sure what to wear with a printed piece, go plain! If you have a pair of printed jeans, dress, or top, pick a simple basic to wear with them. In this case, I picked two plain henleys. One a nice neutral black against the colourful print, and the other a pop of teal colour with the black and grey.

  3. i'm loving the pink leopard print pants and you styled them perfectly!

    cute & little

  4. Loving both of these printed jeans!! I have to wait a couple more months to wear mine because they're burgundy leopard, not ideal for Summer looks, haha!

    1. They are so beautiful though, it's great you can wear them a lot in autumn and winter!

  5. I hope poor baby boy is doing better now!! It's so scary when they aren't well. Poor Violet is recovering from a double ear infection right now. Both looks are fun, and I love that teething necklace!

    1. Oh ouch! Ear infections are the worst! Thankfully he did recover quickly.

  6. Lovely combinations! In love with the pink jeans and you RM bag. Have a great day!

  11. I have to admit this is one of the best outfits I've seen on your blog ! You look really good in those pink skinny jeans! It suits you so perfectly! well done !

  12. Hope baby boy is doing better. Those pink leopard jeans definitely make a statement, and they look comfy!

  13. The pink and grey look so good together, somehow I always forget this color combo is a winner. On the second look I do think you could have done without the scarf style wise but I see you needed it weather wise.

    1. Yeah I think a different plain scarf would have worked better!

  14. I'm sorry to hear the day turned stressful with the doctor's visit. You look like you were ready to handle it though. It's still hard for me to find a rhythm with my work and off days, though I am glad to have both and it has definitely gotten better.
