Grey Tank, Striped Maxi, RM Mini MAC | Khaki Tee, Asos Maternity Pencil Skirt, Alexander Wang Rocco

Here's what I wore on Sunday:
silver owl necklace grey tank target black white stripe maxi skirt pregnancy

RM aqua mini MAC bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: silver Owl pendant long necklace from Paddy's Markets
Top: Jeanswest 'Kate' grey panel tank
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


The summer heat has come back for another go it seems! Was really warm on Sunday. I decided yet again to wear another maxi skirt. This is one of the ones I bought at Target the other day. Definitely starting to develop a bit of a pregnancy uniform here....always liked maxi skirts pre-pregnancy so I guess it's not much of a surprise I'm wearing them so much now. They are the only non-maternity options for my bottom half that still fit due to the stretchy waists, haha!  It's interesting, right now skirts seem to be wining, but I wonder if I'll end up back in (maternity) jeans more often when the weather starts to cool.


Last worn: Ray-ban Wayfarers, grey tank top, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Aquamarine mini MAC. First time I've worn the skirt as it's a recent purchase.



Here's what I wore today:
Third trimester office asos maternity pencil skirt oversized khaki tee french connection

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Necklace: gifted gold heart shaped necklace
TopFrench Connection oversized khaki green tee
SkirtAsos graphic print pencil skirt - on sale! (maternity version here)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
Bracelets: the usual plus jade beads and Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Saint Patrick's day today so I used that as inspiration to find something to wear. Although I'm not sure if the khaki green top pairs quite well with the teal Rocco bag, they both fit so I was happy! :) I do prefer the fit of the tee without a baby bump though!

Will probably be packing the Rocco away for a while - much too heavy for me at the moment when I'm carrying baby too, got a bit of a sore back this evening.

Australia Day: Green and Gold, Funkita Bikini | Asos Red Leopard Print Dress, Miu Miu Clutch

Here's what I wore on Australia Day:
Away From Blue Second trimester Pregnancy Outfit Australia Day green and gold tank and jeans

Alexander Wang Dark argon pebbled leather Rocco Bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow gold multi-strand necklace
TopJeanswest Jenni basic singlet in Emerald green (new purchase)
Jeans: Jeanswest Maternity slim straight jeans
Shoes: Cotton On thin strap thongs in black
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted gold bangle set
Bag: Alexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Green and gold for Australia day of course! Had to use accessories for the theme as I had planned to wear my French Connection silk skirt with this top, like I did on a previous Australia Day, but now the baby bump has grown I have to wear it quite high. Although I could zip it up wearing it above my waist, I worried it would be too short. Luckily my Jeanswest jeans were a good replacement, and I didn't have to worry about the breeze catching the hem of my skirt!

Very sad to have to put the skirt away in the "after baby arrives" box, but it frees up a little more space in my wardrobe. Space for clothes that fit to make it easier to get dressed each day!

If you're curious how the bump is going, I shared the below baby bump pic on instagram. Wearing my new Funkita cossie because it wouldn't be a proper Australia Day without visiting a pool or BBQ ;)
In the end I went for the 'Colour Love Stripes' over the peacock print, and I love it. I ordered a couple of sizes larger than my normal swimwear, so it fits me well for pregnancy. My other bikinis are currently living in the "after baby arrives" box, haha!

Public holiday today, made it a lovely long weekend. Spent some time at home trying to organise my wardrobe and spring clean a little more, so I was just in shorts and a tank. Like a summer version of this 'tidying up' outfit. We are turning the spare room I use as a wardrobe into baby's nursery, so I have a lot more downsizing and cleaning to go. Going from 2 overflowing wardrobes into 1 is not an easy task, so whenever I get the urge to clean or tidy, I get right into it to take advantage of the mood!

DH suggested we take a break for lunch, so I made a bit of an effort and got dressed up in this to go out for lunch and catch a movie. Also had a friend pop by later in the afternoon and give me some advice for work tomorrow, which was lovely :)

Casual Friday Denim Jacket, Dress, Alexander Wang Rocco. Special Video OOTD

Here's what I wore to work for Casual Friday:
away from blue australian summer casual Friday office outfit denim jacket stripe dress

Alexander Wang dark Argon Rocco bag worn with green and blue stripes
Sunglasses: gifted Rayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: gifted Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace

ShoesWittner 'Bolla' black bow detail flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle, Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


As it was a little rainy on Friday morning I added the denim jacket to keep warm on the way to work.
It's been over a year since I last wore this dress, I didn't realise it had been so long! I mainly wear it in summer, but I think I'm going to get more use out of it this year, so I'm keeping it in my wardrobe for now. Maybe I can even try layering it for winter. If I don't get more wear out of it though, it will definitely be leaving my wardrobe. Need to be a lot stricter with what I keep in my wardrobe.


Last worn: Raybans, denim jacket, French Connection stripe dress, Wittner black flats, Alexander Wang Rocco bag.



Here's what I wore today:
DressAsos drape tank in space dye fabric (on sale, extra 10% off with code 'JAN10')

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Something a little different today, a video OOTD instead of a photo. I kept it short, so it's just over a minute long. And I added a little surprise at the end too! Hope you enjoy, leave me a comment and let me know what you think :)

Another dress! I have plenty of wardrobe options but I keep falling back on dresses for work this week - they are just the easiest and simplest option for the office. The mouse flats were noticed by my colleague during a mid morning meeting. I tried my hardest not to laugh when he pointed at my shoes, smiled, and made a little mouse face complete with hands for ears. Definitely made me smile for the rest of the meeting though :)

Today was a short day at work. Lots of meetings (again!) in the morning, and then we had a team building in the afternoon, so it was casual wear. I thought a maxi skirt would be a good choice.
We had a BBQ in Roma Street Parklands, which is a lovely spot to sit in for the afternoon. We timed our leaving perfectly, as the predicted afternoon storm just started as we walked into the train station to go home. Although I do feel sorry for those who decided to walk back to the city before heading home!

Jeans: Sass and Bide "Straight up" jeans
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual
BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Always predictable, jeans for casual Friday :) Covered up a little with this shirt as it was overcast and the weather was predicted to get cooler and storm a little. Forgot to pack an umbrella though, which meant I got soaked on the way home as the rain set in, haha. Meant it was a good night for comfort food for dinner and curling up on the sofa watching a movie.


Last worn: stripe top, skinny jeans, glitter flats, Alexander Wang Rocco bag.



Here's what I wore today:


Sunnies: Orange sunglasses from Paddy's Market in Sydney

Skirt: Seafolly runaway maxi skirt in sunset (purchased at DFO Brisbane)
ShoesAsos metallic Freestyle leather sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Nikki in Silverstreak


I will be honest, I spent a bit of time trying to find the perfect orange or yellow top in my wardrobe to wear with this to have a full obmre sunset outfit going on! Nothing seemed to match quite right, so I went with this nice brown tank in the end. Probably best, I might have gotten strange looks from people wondering if I was dressing up as a sunset for Halloween, haha!

BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather


Big bag today to carry some notebooks back to work, and also as I had a meeting on the other side of the city I had to take stuff along too. It was a nice sunny day, so a simple printed dress. Haven't worn this dress as much as I expected too after I bought it, so today was it's last wear. It's feels a little more casual than some of my other work dresses, so I usually pass by it in my wardrobe in favour of another. After reading Blue Paper Laterns Closet Inventory post, I've been thinking about how many clothes I own and how rarely I wear most of them. I need to be more ruthless with removing things that aren't perfect. Maybe once I've had a few more wardrobe clearouts I'll be brave enough to try and count what I have!

BagAlexander Wang Rocco with gold hardware in dark argon


Three days in a row I've gone for a printed French Connection dress now, sorry! Had to think of something easy yet professional to wear, and rather than fussing with separates I went for the lazy printed dress option. We were filming an internal video at work and I had a part to play in it so wanted to look as professional as possible. I'm be curious to see what the final video looks like - got to see a bit after I'd done my clip and it looked okay. Will be good to see everyone's parts together.

I was wearing a trench over this but it was impossible to take a photo showing the fake "layering" with the top so I braved a photo without the outerwear this morning. Have been eyeing up this top in my wardrobe for a while wanting to wear it, today was finally the day. It was a little awkward tucked in though, the skirt didn't hide the buttons well, haha. Must wear a stiffer skirt next time!

This dress is another Leona Edmiston sale purchase :) I really like the print, and as it's a long sleeved dress it was perfect to keep me warm. So many colours in it, today tried to pull out the green and blues with the Rocco bag. Also a better picture of the new addition to 'the usual' that bracelets I wear - my sister brought me this cute Tiffany bow bracelet back from her travels, she got it in NY. I'm blessed to have such a generous and thoughtful sister! :)

I made yet another matches fashion sale order, haha! I picked up two Marc by Marc Jacobs scarves I'd had on my wishlist for a while, and this scarf was one of them. They are massive and so soft, perfect :)

Wearing the black trench again as it was down into single digit temperatures today. Also had to layer a singlet under the knit as it was so cold! Had considered wearing pants, but didn't feel like wearing the heels required with them. Just wanted to be warm and comfortable, and work appropriate for a big meeting.

Nice colourful red dress to kick off the week. My Monday actually started off okay, despite the rain. Had a meeting first thing, and we were provided with cupcakes! Good way to start a day full of meetings. :)
Also had to give a presentation in the afternoon, so wore heels for a bit of a confidence boost. A few of us in the office are learning, practising, and getting some pointers on presenting. It's terrifying, but helpful too. My first attempt was recorded and it's so awkward to watch, but good to see so many things I can improve. Got a lot of constructive feedback as well. Hopefully over time I'll get over my fear of public speaking!

The cold and rainy weather continued today, so I decided to wear boots with this dress. I'm never too sure if long boots are too casual for the office or not? I've seen a few ladies at work wearing them, and they are very practical in this weather so gave them a go today. For a day without meetings it seemed okay. Tied my scarf a new way a colleague taught me yesterday, sits so nice with the opening of the jacket.

What do you think of the boots and dress combo as office wear?

Had the day off work today to relax and spend time with my mum. We headed up north to the beach to relax and chat, it was a great day. Of course it was windy on the beach, so crazy hair for photos, haha! I figured I'd put up with beach hair to have the 'excitement' of a different background ;)

Although it's winter, I'm still gonna be a real Queenslander and wear my thongs (flip flops) as long as possible! Nice casual outfit for walking along the beach and doing a spot of shopping, relaxed outfit for a relaxed day.

I usually pick my clothes out the night before so I have a little bit of time to plan what I'm wearing. But on Tuesday night I stayed online quite late helping out at Church Online. It was busy and fun, but I was so tired when it was done. Just grabbed some nice easy pieces - can't go wrong with a printed dress - and the same bag I had the day before. Meant there was more time for sleep, even if you're not supposed to pair black and brown together!

The video at Church Online this week is a really moving one, answering the question "what can I do to help?" for the survivors of disasters, and the tornado in Oklahoma. Please check it out online if you have the time.

There have been a lot of celebrations at work recently after the success of our project, today was another with a casual dress day for a team event in the afternoon.

I thought it balanced the line well between casual clothes you wouldn't mind getting paint splashed on and casual clothes for a free dress day in the office!
