Spring Scarves! Chambray Shift Dress, Grey Tank and Colour Block Maxi Skirt

Two spring outfits with scarves! I'm trying to stretch as much wear out of my scarves as possible before the summer heat sets in. They are really practical accessories for life with baby T!


Here's what I wore to spend the day in the city:
Red spring scarf outfit grey tank maxi skirt Alexander McQueen skull
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
Tank: gifted Target grey marle tank top
SkirtAsos colour block maxi skirt in red (on sale!)
Shoes: Wittner 'Columbia' cross strap sandals in tan


Headed into Brisbane city for the afternoon, to have a look at some of the G20 displays and artwork that was set up. There are all kinds of fun events in the evening, but it's a bit late for baby T to be out, so we just enjoyed the things we can do in the daytime.

Also took baby T into the office to introduce him to all of my colleagues and catch up on how things are going at work. I've been away almost 6 months now, and there have been so many changes in my absence! Going to be interesting seeing how many more changes come along before I return to work next year. So thankful for the generous maternity leave we get here in Australia.

This tank top is new - one my mum bought for me on a previous shopping trip. I wanted to add a bit of interest to the plain tank, but couldn't decide on a necklace. I thought the scarf was nice, and it wasn't too warm for it. I need to try still get some wear out of my scarves this spring, we will see if the weather cooperates! Thought about adding a handbag, but decided just to carry everything in the baby bag for simplicity.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, skull scarf, colour block maxi skirt, Wittner sandals. First time I've worn the tank.



Here's what I wore to go to an appointment:
Paisley print Snood Chambray Shift Dress Mulberry Bayswater Outfit
ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood (on sale!)
DressEzra chambray shift dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather


A little bit of a dull, drizzly start to the day, so took the chance to wear one of my thicker winter scarves. I ended up taking it off when the afternoon heat hit though. Probably not going to be able to wear it until Autumn comes around next year now.

Had an early morning appointment, so dropped baby T off at his grandparents and took my Mulberry Bayswater to hold all the paperwork and stuff I needed. No time to do my hair, so it's scraped up into a messy bun. It is becoming my hairstyle of choice!

I was going to wear my little tan flats with this (like I did last time I wore this bag), but decided on the gold ones instead. I quite like it in the photo, but while I was wearing it I did wish I'd gone with the tan flats!

  3. I really like that chambray dress, the scarf, the bag and yes the gold flats. Do they have a little face? Or some other application? Anyway I think they work well with the outfit, they add some spice ;-)

  4. I always love the McQueen scarves! I think the second dress is one of my favorites of yours. I love how Australia prioritizes maternity leave and family. It's so awesome that you get such great time with that baby before returning to work!

    1. We are pretty flexible with maternity leave! We can get anywhere up to 2 years! The government provide you with a year, and some employers (like mine) offer time on top of that.

  6. Such cute scarves. You don't have to pack them away just yet. That red one would look super cute as a tie back for your hair. (:
