Chambray Shift Dress, Skull Scarf | Printed Tank, Colour Block Maxi Skirt

Two more outfits as I'm enjoying the warmer spring weather and taking the chance to get out of the house with baby T, now that he's better.

Here's what I wore to go to the doctors:
Sunglasses: Cotton On 'Risky Business' sunglasses in sky blue
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
DressEzra chambray shift dress (on sale here)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs


Headed out to the doctors again with baby T for another check-up. Wore a shift dress as it was a warm day, but added a scarf for a little bit of colour. As I was babywearing, I wanted something simple and lightweight. It can get a little hot on warm days with baby strapped to me!

Picked the pink scarf as I really like the combination of blue and pink together. Hoping I can keep wearing my scarves for a little longer as we move into spring. I feel I didn't make the most of winter fashion-wise as I was indoors with baby a lot. Much more fun, but it did mean I didn't wear as many winter clothes as usual! I bought this dress back in winter, and it was hard to get a lot of wear out of it then, but it is going to be reached for a lot now in spring when I don't have to layer.


Last worn: blue sunnies, pink skull scarf, chambray shift dress, Havaianas.



Here's what I wore to have a picnic at the beach:
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Tank: Emerson crochet lace bib print top
SkirtAsos colour block maxi skirt in red (on sale!)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs


Since baby T was feeling a lot better, we went out for a family picnic at the beach. It was a wonderful day, so nice to get outside into the sunshine and relax. Perfect public holiday weather, and Baby T had his first play in the sand too! He loved it.

I thought that the red in this printed tank would look nice with the red colour block skirt. I liked the combination of the skirt and a printed top last time too. So glad that I purchased this skirt, it's becoming one of my go-to pieces! The only thing I didn't like about this outfit was the fact that I forgot my sun hat - luckily we set up the picnic blanket in some shade.

This is the first time I've worn the tank without a baby bump! Looking up the last time I wore thins and seeing my pregnancy photos is rather fun. Last time I wore this tank I was in the third trimester and taking advantage of its loose style to fit my growing bump. It's nice to be able to wear it tucked in now for a change, I didn't have that option while pregnant.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, crochet detail tank, ombre maxi skirt, Havaianas (see above).

  1. I love that first dress. I'd love a Chambray Shift. I am also wearing a Chambray Dress in today's post. I must say the scarf you chose to accessorize it with is perfect.

    And in the second outfit those colors make me so happy. Great way to pattern-mix while staying monochrome as well.


    VERY WELL DONE, MICA!!

    1. Ah, so sorry about the error page, the dress must be sold out! :( I hate how the iconic does that. They do have a lot of cute things though, and great sales, but a lot of errors if the things sell out, haha!
