Skinny Jeans, Printed Scarves and Cardigans with Rebecca Minkoff Red Saddle Bag

More adventures out with my friend who was visiting Brisbane. I've mentioned before I try to get out as often as I can with the two boys, but with my friend here we've been doing a more than our usual routine of library and playgroup visits. I've been reaching for jeans a lot to keep things simple, and Converse for all the walking.

What I wore:

Brestfeeding friendly zoo outfit: bird print scarf, elephant teething necklace skinnies cardi | AwayFromBlue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | AwayFromTheBlue
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Scarf: navy bird print scarf
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
TankMEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O Zibibo
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white (on sale and on sale in metallic!)
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale and on sale in brown!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a trip to Australia zoo. While it was quite warm and I took my cardigan off for most of the day, I was thankful I'd brought the scarf as it's a great breastfeeding coverup. Plus the bird print is perfect for a day at the zoo. Didn't attract the local birds like I did last time I wore it though!

The elephant necklace was a last minute addition but again was a fun animal themed piece to wear to the zoo. I have a few teething necklaces from when toddler T was a baby, this one is a new one I got in a babyology subscription box. Baby boy has started grabbing and tugging on my hair hard so the necklace was a little bit of a distraction for him. Came in handy on the long car ride home when we got stuck in traffic with a cranky baby too, one of my friends tied it to the baby capsule like a little mobile to calm him down.

JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black (on sale and on sale in grey)
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale and on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

It was a slightly cooler day so I was glad I'd worn a thicker cardigan. While I took the scarf off and on as I was babywearing with the Ergo carrier, the cardigan stayed on all day as we went into the city for brunch. It's getting more fun to eat out with toddler T as he's getting to the age where we can order a little meal for him to, and he definitely enjoyed his little serving.

I've mentioned before that I wasn't too sure about what kind of printed scarves I could wear with these jeans, but I find skull scarves seem to go with everything and I don't worry about wearing them with other prints. It was nice to have a little more red in my outfit too.

  1. As always you've got a nice scarf and it suits the bag too. This bag is pretty, a feminine version of Valentino.

  11. Something I'm totally doing next time around is the teething necklaces. Actually, before reading your blog, I had no idea they even existed! Back when Penny was a little thing, she loved to thug at my hair. Wish I would have had one of those!

    I think the elephant teething necklace is so fitting. If you remember, I too like to wear animals things to the zoo. (;

  13. Who would have thought that a skull print would be a neutral?? I love it! I appreciate that you're making an effort to be dressed nicely when you're out and about, Mica! Well done! I know it must be tough with two little ones, but you're looking fabulous.

  14. It is such a relief when they get older and you can take them out to eat. And then you realize that you have another one that cant eat or even sit on its own...

  25. It sounds like you had an eventful day, girlie! I'm sure the kids loved seeing all the animals at the zoo and how clever of your friend to think of using that super cute necklace as a little mobile to calm the little guy! You look beautiful in both outfits, I'm loving the way you've been working with those chevron printed jeans. They can be touch to pull off, but you've been working them so well! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  30. Love the teething necklace. I didn’t know they were a thing but it must be so much more useful! My son always used to rip & chew my gold necklaces so I could never wear them. Love the scarves. They kind of elevate the outfit a little.
