Here's what I wore to travel to Melbourne and explore the city today:
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
Necklace: gift from DH
Bracelets: the usual
Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress in black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs Logo Plaque flats in camel
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown from Reebonz


It was supposed to be warm and sunny in Melbourne today, so a dress seemed like a nice idea to be comfortable for the flight down and for walking around the city. I ended up having to wear my jacket as well as it was a bit chilly, although it warmed up and I could put my scarf away after lunch.

Spent some time today walking around, catching trams, having absolutely delicious cupcakes with amazing company and visiting the usual tourist spots - I will try to put some photos up on my facebook page if you want to see. Had to take this quick one in the hotel's rooftop garden as I didn't have any other head to toe shots.


Last worn: Zara jacket, printed dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs flats, Marc Jacobs Fran bag.


I'm excited to attend my first Melbourne Reebonz offline sale tomorrow! Hope you can join me!

37 Weeks Pregnant: Easy Autumn Maxi Skirt Outfits. Grey, Stripes, Marc Jacobs Red Ukita Bag

Here's what I wore on Monday:
third trimester grey black white stripes maxi skirt bright red bag outfit

NecklaceDogeared silver wishbone necklace
TopJeanswest 'Marion' grey textured crew neck knit (new purchase)
SkirtTarget black and white striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


This top is one I ordered from the Jeanswest sale a while back for 40% off, I just had to take it to the tailor to have the sleeves shortened a bit. I like it with the sleeves rolled up a little, but the original sleeves were much too long and it just created a lot of bulk.

It's a nice light knit that kept me cosy on Monday as I had a browse in the local op-shops (thrift stores). Found some great blazers. Can't button them with the baby bump in the way - I don't actually think I have anything I can button over the bump now - but they should hopefully button up after baby's arrival.


Last worn: stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag. First time I've worn the top as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:

SkirtTarget grey marle maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs

BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster


Another maxi skirt outfit! I'm starting to really see the pregnancy 'uniform' coming out now I don't have to worry about dressing professionally for work. In this last month of pregnancy, comfort wins every time.

Did try to add a bit of interest by wearing a striped top with the tweed blazer, but it's still that fitted top and maxi skirt combo I've been wearing so often. Had lunch with my mum today and attended another check-up for baby, so this was a nice comfy outfit. Didn't realise it was the inverse of yesterday's outfit (grey on the bottom, black and white stripes on top this time) until I was uploading the photos! I've been wearing a lot of grey lately. There may be more grey than blue in my wardrobe now!


Last worn: Zara tweed blazerGlassons stripe tank, Target grey maxi skirt, Havaianas (see above), MbMJ Ukita (see above).

Late night post, as I completely forgot I had to blog today until later in the evening! Was too caught up watching "The Mole" on 7, haha. DH is really into it so I've been sucked in a bit too.
Simple black and red outfit today, nothing spectacular. Was pleasantly warm for a nice change, only needed a light jacket and no scarf.

Close up of accessories and bag:


I wasn't feeling very inspired last night when trying to decide what to wear - decided to go with my target LBD as I think the pleats and studs add some nice interest to it. The weather was cooler this morning though, so added a pop of colour with my Zara blazer. Even Cooper thought it was a bit windy - he doesn't look very happy in the first photo!

Zara Blazer, Printed Singlet, Red Skinny Jeans, Balenciaga Sang Clutch | Khaki Tee, Jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Aqua Mini MAC

Here's what I wore on Saturday to run errands, have an early Mother's Day celebration with family and go out for dinner:


Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
Top: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
JeansJeanswest Pepper Red super skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Balenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang


A lot of red today! Wanted to wear something warm. Still not too sure if the jacket and top and all of the red was too much together, but I felt comfortable and most importantly warm all day. Got DH to take a quick picture between a break in the rain, but that was the only time it stopped all day. Boots were the obvious choice, and comfortable for running around in the morning and going out in the evening.


Last worn: Zara red boucle jacket, printed singlet, red skinny jeans, Asos Aggie boots, Balenciaga flat clutch.

Here's what I wore for a relaxing, lazy Sunday and to work at Church Online in the evening:


TeeFrench Connection oversized khaki green tee
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoes: gifted Havaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in Aquamarine


Thankfully today the weather was a bit warmer, and a lot less rainy. Didn't have much to to, just wanted to relax today, so a really casual outfit of jeans and a tee. Shocked to find it's been over a year since I last wore this top though, crazy!

Please excuse the water droplets on my mini MAC - got it a little wet from bushing on the leaves of the bush in the photo. Didn't notice till I uploaded the photos, it dried up pretty quickly.

Dressing Up Jeans With Boucle Jackets

Posting another two denim outfits, trying to dress them up a little with statement jackets.

Here's what I wore to visit the child health nurse and go shopping:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
JacketAsos blazer in textured boucle with fluro binding
Scarf: Jay Jays orange scarf
TopJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank (on sale!)
JeansSass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag


I'm rather proud of this outfit. Not that I think it's particularly wonderful, just because of the speed I managed to put it together while rushing around getting baby T and I ready. Funny how speed of getting dressed has a big impact on my feelings when wearing an outfit nowadays! It had been a particularly hectic morning as we were running late, with multiple changes of clothes required for baby and me slowing us down.

I think the scarf makes it look a little more put together, like I actually spent time planning my outfit. With the cardigan, it's soft for baby to snuggle into and also easy to clean in case of more 'accidents'. It's really comfortable with the jeans and Converse. And most importantly of all, it stayed clean for our outing. We weren't too late to meet the nurse, and she even complimented me on my jacket! Even had a little time afterwards to do a quick grocery shop for the essentials as well.

Surprisingly, the scarf hasn't been on the blog before - or I couldn't find it if it has. It's an oldie, a gift a while back from my mum. Should wear it more often, it's such a nice orange colour. Added it as the cardi kept me warm enough, didn't need a thick scarf.


Last worn: Ray-Ban, textured cardi, stripe tank, Sass and Bide jeans, white Converse, MbMJ baby bag.



Here's what I wore to go to the post office:

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
TopMarc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
JeansJeanswest blue skinny jeans
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan


I'd been wanting to wear this jacket for a while. Last time I wore it I was heavily pregnant! I thought it would pair nicely with my colourblock maxi skirt when I last wore it, but it's not the best thing to wear if I've got baby T in his carrier because of the metal zips. It works really nicely with denim though, and kept me warm for a trip to the post office to pick up a parcel. Jeans and boots is a slight change from jeans and Converse, and something I can really only wear in winter so I'm enjoying it while I can before Spring officially starts next week.

The red scarf is another piece I've been feeling the need to wear lately - hasn't gotten a lot of love this winter compared to my other skull scarves. Was good to be able to wear both pieces in one outfit. Funny that the last time I wore this grey tee I paired it with the same scarf!


Last worn: Ray Ban (see above), Zara tweed jacket, red skull scarf, grey tee, skinny jeans, leather boots.

It was rather windy when taking the evening picture sorry! We snapped it on our way home after the fireworks. To keep things simple I just swapped out my red bag for a red clutch and added a blazer to keep warm.

Riverfire was really amazing. There was great company and the best view point we have ever had, I really enjoyed it. Thought I would share one of my favourite photos that I took. There are more on instagram if you're interested.


The jeans were last worn here, sandals here, velo here, jacket here and clutch here. It's the first time I've worn the singlet on the blog, although I've had it a while.
