Here's what I wore to go pick up our new car:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Zara frayed basket weave cardigan in blue
Necklace: Dogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace layered with vintage gold initial necklace
Dress: Jeanswest peach ruffle cami
Jeans: Jeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs pretty nylon Eliz-A-Baby bag
You might remember me on the blog a while back (while I was still pregnant!) talking about going car shopping. We eventually found the perfect car and placed an order shortly before baby T arrived. There was a mix-up at the dealership unfortunately, so there was a bit of a delay. It's been a long wait, and after lots of updates from a very apologetic sales guy, we finally have the car we wanted with all the bells and whistles and safety things for baby! So exciting! My favourite part is that it has little air conditioning vents in the back - perfect for keeping baby and Cooper cool on a hot day.
Wanted to look a little dressed up for going to the dealership so added the tweed cardi over the top of the casual jeans and cami outfit. I wore the outfit without the jacket when I went out that morning with baby, but we picked the car up in the evening when a light jacket was helpful.
This cami top is one I got from my sister as part of her wardrobe clear out. Such a great piece, I'm glad she didn't want it any more.
Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Zara cardi, skinny jeans, Havaianas, Marc By Marc Jacobs baby bag. First time I've worn the top.
Here's what I wore to try to avoid melting:
Rayban new Wayfarers
Singlet: Cotton On stripe sailor tank in dusky green / grey marle
Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoes: Havaianas tropical print thongs
Such a hot day when I wore this! Defintely no need for an extra layer. I honestly felt like I was melting, and baby T had a hard time coping! Out of nowhere the Spring weather took a turn and treated us to a little bit of summer heat. Was quite a shock to the system for me, and a bit of an upset for baby T, poor little man has never felt such heat in his life. I had to venture outside to the post office, so wanted to wear as few clothes as possible to do so, yet still look decent. A light-weight tank and denim shorts was good to try keep cool, and for lounging around at home afterwards trying to cool down again. It was not as cool in the morning as I hoped it would be, but at least we were back home before the real heat of the day. I wasn't up for standing out in the sun again just for a picture, so stayed inside the house to take this, haha!
I've only worn this tank once before, over a year ago. I do recall trying to wear it in pregnancy, but the baby bump had outgrown it when I tried. I don't really wear green a lot in my wardrobe, which might be another reason it hasn't been worn much. I did enjoy wearing it this time though, so it's staying in my wardrobe for now, and I'll make more of an effort to wear it over the warmer months to justify keeping it. I have quite a few pieces like this in my wardrobe - great sale bargains I just had to have...which don't end up getting worn much at all. I need to keep this in mind when I shop the sales racks in future!
Last worn: Wayfarers (see above), stripe tank, denim shorts, Havaianas.
