Jeanswest Maternity Skinny Jeans, Dressing Up A Stay At Home Outfit As A New Mother

I'm blogging less often as life revolves around newborn baby T and I spend a lot of time in pyjamas. No one wants to see my daggy PJs, so I only blog when I've got dressed and had time to take a picture.


Here's what I wore to have visitors drop by:
Scarf: red and black skull print scarf
Top: Chicabooti red fine knit jumper (with Cotton On red singlet underneath)
JeansJeanswest maternity skinny jeans in black
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual


One of our friends let us know that they were passing by and wanted to drop by and spend some time with baby T. Thought that I'd add a scarf to the plain knit and jeans outfit to dress it up a little for visitors. We even had time to clean the house a little before everyone came by. Quite a productive day!

I have a lot of accessories I can use to dress up outfits - but I haven't been wearing jewellery a lot. Usually before baby I'd wake up, know what I was going to wear and pick the accessories from my jewellery stand next to the bed. Now, I'm woken up by baby T and getting dressed can happen quite a few hours after I've gotten up and made him happy! Scarves are great for that, they are nice "afterthoughts" to an outfit I've hurriedly pulled on but they help make it look a little more put together. I keep mine right by the door too, so it's easy to grab one on the way out. Haven't worn this one in a long time (over two years!), but thought that it went perfectly with this outfit.


Last worn: skull print scarf, red knit, red singlet, maternity skinny jeans, Converse.



Here's what I wore to go to a doctor's appointment:
JacketJuicy Couture Zip Hoodie in Lilac
Top: Best and Less blue stripe breastfeeding singlet
Jeans:  Jeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


My family came over to spend some time with baby T. We had lunch, and they were able to baby sit while I popped out to a doctor's appointment. It was sunny and warm, so I just wore my Havaianas.

This is just another "stay at home mum outfit". I tend not to put too much effort into what I wear if I'm just going to the doctors! It would have looked really nice with a necklace, but baby T can be a bit grabby sometimes and I don't want him getting tangled up in any of my necklaces.

The hoodie was a lovely gift from my bestie, she's so generous! We both have a love of Juicy Couture trackie dacks for lounging at home or dog walking. I've been wearing mine a lot more often now, spending so much time at home. The hoodies have been popping up on the blog too as some days a blazer or leather jacket seems too dressed up and a cardigan is just too thin for the winter weather. They are a nice casual cover up.


Last worn: striped singlet, maternity skinny jeans, Havaianas, Balenciaga tempete day bag. First time I've worn the jacket as it is a recent gift.

  8. I think you have transitioned from working lady to mummy really smoothly! Stay comfy as that is the most important thing right now! I think you are still maintaining the chic-factor on what you are wearing and doing a great job at it!

  23. So great to read that friends and family are being so supportive. This is not always the case, I have a friend who i invited over for dinner a few months back and asked her to bring her 2 year old. She was so excited as she mentioned that now that she has a baby she is not invited so often as people would rather have her not bring the baby :/
    I think you look so nice in both outfits.

    1. Oh that's such a shame that she isn't invited out as often! It's nice to get out of the house now and then with a baby - or even without baby if you have a good baby sitter! :)
