Baby T and What I've Been Wearing While Caring For A Newborn

Baby T has arrived! He is a beautiful baby boy, and I've already shared a few photos on instagram, @awayfromblue. A few people have been waiting for something to show up on the blog too, so put together this quick post between nap times.

Thank you all so much for your kind words and comments while I've been preoccupied with our beautiful little baby.




I've relied on my scheduled "maternity wardrobe essentials" posts and haven't been sharing what I've been wearing lately as my outfits have been very boring and repetitive. In hospital, I wore pyjamas mostly. I did "dress up" in trackie dacks (sweats) and a breastfeeding singlet during visiting hours.

Now that we are home, I haven't varied that uniform too much. I'm still in my PJs a lot of the time, as life revolves around baby T and we are trying to settle into a routine. Not at all ashamed to admit that at this early stage, getting dressed is pretty much reserved for when we have visitors or we need to go somewhere!

This is a daily outfit blog though, so I'll continue to share what I wear  - when I have ventured out of the house, and have had time or remembered to take a picture. I've always shared what I actually wear here, and as it was fun to share my pregnancy looks, thought you might like a little insight into the 'first days with a newborn' outfits. They are certainly not the best or most inspiring, but they are definitely practical and comfortable. And when you're running on limited sleep, comfort and ease always wins!

Now your expectations are suitably lowered... ;) This is what I wore for baby T's first outing, a couple of days after we got out of hospital.

Cardigan: Jeanswest Dana drape knit cardi in Boysenberry
Top: Best and Less blue stripe breastfeeding singlet
JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs (not pictured)
Bracelets: the usual


Added a cardigan and swapped the comfy PJ pants for my maternity skinny jeans to make this outfit look a little more presentable for baby T's first outing to our local clinic. My maternity jeans will get worn for a while yet - as you can see I still have a bit of baby belly. Not fussed with trying to find clothes to hide it at the moment, sleep is higher on the list of priorities, hehe!


Last worn: purple cardi, maternity skinny jeans, shoes. First time I've worn the top on the blog.

Linking up with Style Sessions, Real Mum Style, Stylish Tuesday, Trend Spin Linkup, WIWW, Colour Brigade, Wardrobe Wednesday, What I Wore, Summer Style today.

  1. You and baby T both look Happy, Healthy and Beautiful and that is the most important thing of all not OOTD Posts. Love that last photo Mica. He is beautiful. Congratulations on him. It's a BOY - I was right! =)) What date was he born on?

    Make the most of each minute with him because knowing from experience they grow up way too fast.

    1. Thanks! :) He was born just a few days after his due date, he didn't want to keep us waiting too long!

  2. So thrilled!!! I don't do Instagram, so I appreciate this 'old school' post. Absolutely beautiful. Stay cosy, relaxed and well-rested. Lovely time of year to snuggle a baby. Xxx

  4. Oh he is just adorable. Congratulations again, Mica! I'm glad to see you're not fashioning it up and just focusing on little baby. Don't you go about dressing to your usual standards until you feel comfortable with it. It's also really refreshing to see you proudly show off your baby belly. He looks so beautiful and comfortable in your arms. I can't imagine how thrilled you must be. Keep well rested and stay in those PJs. Wishing you all the best, Rosemary x

    1. Thanks Rosemary! :) We are so thrilled!

      It took 9 months to get that baby belly, I expect it to take a long amount of time to get rid of it too, hehe! :) Happy to show that it doesn't all just disappear, you have to work at it :)

    1. It's nice to be able to share little bits here and there - what people actually wear is more inspiring to me than posed and planned photoshoots so I'm happy to share what I really wear too, in case that helps/interests someone else :)

    Sleep is surely the first priority for a new mother. I haven't had kids yet, but I have a big family and I know just how demanding a new born can be...but also so sweet...and looking into those newly open eyes is precious...always makes me feel blessed.
