Here's what I wore to visit the child health nurse and go shopping:
Jacket: Asos blazer in textured boucle with fluro binding
Scarf: Jay Jays orange scarf
Top: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank (on sale!)
Jeans: Sass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bag: Marc 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:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave blazer with zips in red
Scarf: Alexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
Top: Marc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
Jeans: Jeanswest blue skinny jeans
Shoes: Asos 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.
