Jeanswest Maji Metallic Tank Worn 2 Ways

Thank you to everyone who left a kind comment, said some prayers or texted, called, emailed or messaged me over the last week and a half while Baby Boy was in hospital. An extra special thank you to those who visited us. We are home now to enjoy Christmas.

---

One of the gaps I noticed in my wardrobe when spring arrived was some nice relaxed fit block colour tanks. I was thrilled to find this metallic one at Jeanswest. I had a gift card and it was on sale! It's a very pale green with silver thread running through it, and they have it in brown and gold too. It's on sale again, with 40% off.

Since the festive season is the perfect time to wear something that sparkles I've included a few more sparkly pieces for you to shop below. Ideal for New Year's Eve party outfits!

What I wore:

summer printed maxi skirt and metallic tank with purple accessories | Away From The Blue Blog

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum, printed maxi skirt | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (currently 40% off!)
Skirt: Izabel London Aztec print maxi skirt (C/O)
Shoes:  black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in yellow!)
Nail Polish: OPI Koala Bear-y

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy morning. We haven't been house hunting much since having Baby Boy, only because it's so much more difficult touring open houses with two little ones. We're really picky with what we want to see. Two possible houses popped up in our searches so we decided to go visit them both, and finish a little more Christmas shopping.

Although neither house made us feel like it was the perfect house for us it was nice getting out and looking at houses, it seems to have been a while since we saw any that looked promising. I was happy to wear my new tank too. I added some colour with the accessories as it seemed like a pretty plain outfit otherwise.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, printed maxi skirt, Havaianas, purple mini MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the top as it's a new purchase.

Other ways to wearprinted maxi skirt in winter, purple mini MAB tote bag and winter layers.

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | AwayFromTheBlue
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (currently 40% off!)
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in gold!)
Nail PolishOPI Koala Bear-y

Why I wore it:

I liked the plain tank and printed bottom combo above so wore it again the second time I wore this metallic tank top. Although this time with shorts instead of a max skirt. Again I wore this to do a little bit of Christmas shopping! A little bit of sparkle with the metallic thread does seem so festive for December.

It's been a year and a half since I last wore these shorts, which is a crazy amount of time. I was pregnant last spring/summer though so that's partly why these shorts were unworn. It was so good to get them out again, a nice change from the usual denim shorts I tend to default to in the warmer months.

As it's the second time I've worn this metallic tank, and I'm reviewing everything I buy after wearing it twice, my purchase review:
I really like this tank, definitely a keeper. The subtle metallic thread and shimmer makes it a great basic piece that I'll be wearing even after the festive season. It fits my wardrobe wishlist need for more basic relaxed fit tanks and I'm really pleased I bought it.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer (above), metallic tank (above), printed shorts, studded sandals, silver mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wear: printed shorts and purple top, studded sandals and denim shorts, metallic silver mini MAC and stripes.

  4. So happy to hear you guys are home! <3

    I totally get the stall in house hunting. I think it's great you know exactly what you want and the perfect house just hasn't come on the market yet. (; We took Pen to see three houses with us, including the one we bought, and she was a nightmare! lol So I sympathize with you!

    I really like those shorts, I hereby identify nice patterned flowy shorts as a gap in my wardrobe! In the UK I'd hardly wear them, but I think that will all change next year :)

  23. You look lovely in both outfits! Also, I can imagine how hard it must be to find the perfect house given that you have two little ones. It is difficult to find one that you like and at the same time will cater to the needs of your babies. You look great anyway. :)

  24. I love that printed skirt and those shorts Mica! You wear prints well! Both outfits look great on you. I'm so glad your son is doing better and home. No one wants to be in a hospital during the holidays. Definitely a Christmas blessing. Have you and your husband thought about building a home? That could be another option. If not, something will definitely pop up. At least you know what you want and what you're looking for. Buying a home is a big investment and it's important that you get what you want. I wish you luck :D

    1. Thanks Kim! We can't find land in the areas we want to build our own place sadly, but we are looking into it! :)

      And everyone was trying so hard to get us home for Christmas so we wouldn't have to be in the hospital, it was lovely to see.
