Hopefully doing this will help me accomplish a few things:
- keep my spending in check
- ensure I wear what I buy. When I don't wear it, reflect on why it didn't get worn so I don't repeat mistakes
- give me some inspiration for what to wear each day as I've been feeling a little uninspired lately.
With the extra 20% off sale code at Matches Fashion, I bought this printed scarf. I ended up wearing it twice with stripes! I will need to wear it with something else next time.
Here's what I wore to go shopping with baby T:
Bali sunglasses C/O Kameleonz (20% discount with code 'MICA')
Scarf: Stella McCartney heart print scarf (on sale here, new purchase)
Tee: Atmos&Here oversized stripe tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoes: Nine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag
This tee was a favourite of mine near the end of my pregnancy. I bought it while I was pregnant, so this is its first wearing without the baby bump! Last time I wore it I was 40 weeks pregnant and wondering when baby was going to arrive, as he was overdue. Very similar outfit this time around, although with regular skinny jeans instead of maternity ones. Made a very blue outfit with the addition of the scarf, and kept me cosy as I went shopping with baby.
Last worn: Atmos&Here stripe tee, skinny jeans, glitter flats, Marc Jacobs baby bag. First time I've worn the scarf.
Here's what I wore to go to a baby shower:
Scarf: Stella McCartney heart print scarf (on sale here)
Dress: Jeanswest 'Rita' stripe jersey dress
Belt: Asos metal keeper skinny waist belt in bright blue (hidden by scarf)
Shoes: Asos Aggie leather western ankle boots in black
Bag: Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete
Loved the heart print and stripes combination so much that I decided to wear it again. I'm realising I need to try and find ways to wear my office dresses while on maternity leave, or they will just take up space in my wardrobe. Have been wanting to wear this dress for a while, and a baby shower seemed like a great time to wear a pretty dress :) Last wore it in the second trimester, before the bump got too big for it.
Wasn't sure if the shower would be indoors or outdoors, so the scarf and jacket were good layers to keep me warm. They came in handy when I got back late in the evening (so indoor night time pic) and it was quite chilly. The Matches website states the scarf is big enough to double as a travel blanket too - it is! - and it's very cosy.
As the second wear of this scarf since I bought it, the final verdict is:
I'm happy I purchased it. I love blue, prints, and scarves so I think it was always going to be a winner.
Last worn: denim jacket, scarf (see above), striped dress, blue belt, ankle boots, Balenciaga day bag.
