Colourful V-Neck Tees, Striped Maxi Skirts and Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Two similar outfits for some very different days the week before Christmas! Colourful v-neck tees with striped maxi skirts, sneakers, statement necklaces and my Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull tote.


What I wore:

Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This was not a fun and relaxing December day. Baby Boy had to go into hospital for more surgery, so I loaded up this big Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag with things to keep him comfortable and entertained (as well as a big Woolies green bag with more essentials for a hospital stay) and we headed into the city.

I wore a similar outfit last time he had surgery, it was a little easier this time knowing a bit more of what to expect, and not having as long of a stay as we did back in December 4 years ago. I wore comfortable pieces, with this vertical striped maxi skirt not having been worn in a while and very easy to wash. The purple tee is one that's starting to show its age, although still wearable, so I knew it would be comfortable and I wouldn't be too distraught if it got blood on it that didn't wash off. Even the necklace is fully washable! Thankfully this time around the recovery was a bit easier and less messy. I think knowing what to expect and him being a little older really helped.

A massive thank you to all the staff at the Mater too, from the surgeon to the anaesthetist to all the nurses, they made our stay as nice as possible and being able to call with questions even on a December weekend once we were back home as he recovered more was much appreciated. And I don't take for granted the blessing of being able to be home for Christmas.

Why I wore it:

This was a happier day! I took the kids out around our favourite trail that morning, trying to beat the rain and the humidity, just to get them out of the house. After a very stormy and wet week they hadn't been able to play much in the back yard so scooting and biking around a short little trail was a nice break, and thankfully Baby Boy was well enough. Even if the humidity was crazy by the time we got out of the door and we did get a little wet in the car park when it started to rain as we left!

Afterwards we went to check out the Christmas window displays at a local shopping centre, as well as pick up a little treat for morning tea and then back home. Just a short time out as Baby Boy wasn't up to too much, but it was good to get out the house.

Surprisingly I hadn't worn this marigold tee with the navy striped maxi skirt before! I have worn a mustard tee with this skirt before and liked the combination, the orange looks good with it too. Kept it comfortable for the little walk with my New Balance sneakers and tried to dress the outfit up a little with this thrifted statement necklace. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was probably not the best choice with the impending storm and rain, but it was easy to throw everything into like snacks and water bottles and we didn't get too wet.

How You Can Wear It:

A striped maxi skirt is a great basic piece to have in your wardrobe and pairs so well with another staple basic, a colourful v-neck tee. It makes for an easy outfit for mum life, whatever the day has in store!

  2. I love the fun color of the orange tee. I have a couple of large totes that I like to use when I have to carry more than usual. Sometimes I use them to bring extra clothes when shooting blog pictures.

    1. That's a good use for a tote! I just take photos at home of what I'm wearing before I leave for the day so I don't have to carry clothes around for photos which is nice :)

  10. Sending loads of good vibes to you and Baby Boy and your family, Mica - how stressful to be dealing with surgery over the holidays. You're putting a good face on it, though. *hug*

    Take care, sweetheart.

  11. I do hope Baby Boy is on the mend, and that the experience wasn't too traumatic for either of you.
    As for your outfit, they are both gorgeous, even if the first one was worn on a less than happy day.
    My favourite is the second outfit, as I'm loving the pop of colour provided by that marigold tee! xxx

  15. Hope your son is doing better now that he's home and mending from the surgery. That tote does look like it'd be great to stash a lot of things in, yet it is still stylish! I love that marigold color, so cheerful! It has been so gloomy here!

  37. Love the relaxed boho look. Absolutely stunning. This bag is a classic. It brings back memories of my time in high school as every one and their mama had the bag and white was the it colour.
    I'm here reminiscing.
    Wishing you the best of the week and the best of the year!
