Postpartum Outfits: Stripes and Maxi Skirts

I've been eager to get back into my regular wardrobe post-baby. My third trimester capsule wardrobe was fun, but I really was looking forward to having a bigger selection of clothes again.

Unfortunately, at two weeks postpartum you can't quite fit into everything in your wardrobe. Stretchy fabrics are the way to go! They are extremely comfortable too.

What I wore:

AwayFromTheBlue | Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
TeeAtmos&Here oversized stripe tee
SkirtJeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Just a heads up that I will be wearing these tees a lot! I have this striped tee in black and burgundy and grey...when I see something I like I buy multiples. They are super soft and don't need ironing so they are on high rotation at the moment. Plus the stretchy factor works nicely post-baby with all the extra curves to be covered.

Wore this out to take baby boy to a quick checkup, and to grab some lunch.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, striped tee, black maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga Tempete Day bag.

Other ways to wearstriped tee and tartan scarf, black maxi skirt and a graphic teeBalenciaga Tempete Day bag and denim shorts.

SkirtAsos colour block maxi skirt in red
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Was so happy to be able to wear this maxi skirt again, even if I did go the very boring route and wear it with a breastfeeding singlet. This skirt was too long worn under the baby bump and never looked right worn above the bump so I've not been able to wear it since October.

Wore this out to attend a child health clinic appointment with baby boy. I was feeling happy and confident in my outfit until I looked down halfway through the day and saw baby had added a little something to it....thankfully after I took photos, but sadly while we were out in public!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers (above), breastfeeding singlet, colour block maxi skirt, Havaianas (above), Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere.

Other ways to wearblack singlet and black skirt, colour block maxi skirt for a night out, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere and a wrap dress.

Corporate Style: Prints, Pink and Blazers

With a quiet few days at work without a lot of meetings, I took the chance to try some new things to meet the challenges for the Fox in Flats style dares on instagram. I ended up with two outfits I was really happy with!

What I wore:

Marsala skinny pants for office with pink strawberry print shirt blazer heels

 Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
Jacket: Zara cream jersey blazer
NecklaceTai gold alphabet necklace
ShirtChoies pink chiffon shirt with strawberry print (C/O Choies)
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
Shoes: Wittner 'Mimi' heels in mushroom
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I've always admired pink and burgundy on other people, I've seen it done really well, so wanted to give it a try myself! Of course we call it Marsala this year ;)

I've worn burgundy to work before (burgundy scarf, maroon dress) but when I saw this challenge I had a hard time trying to think of anything Marsala-toned that I could wear to work. I kept thinking of these pants. I've always thought of these pants more as skinny jeans. They aren't denim, but they are quite a slim fit. I think with the heels and the button up shirt and blazer they dressed up nicely for the office. I've had them 3 years and never once worn them to the office, not even for casual Friday.

This is my favourite outfit from the Fox in Flats style dares this time around - because I'd never thought of wearing these pants to the office before. Now I've tried it and loved it, I have a new way to wear them! It's good to find new ways to wear things in my wardrobe.


Last worn: cream blazer, strawberry print shirt, burgundy pants, Wittner heels, LV speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to wear: jersey blazer with a vintage skirt suitcasual summer shorts outfit with printed shirt, casual burgundy pants and iombre knit outfit, brown heels with flares, LV speedy with a chambray dress.









What I wore:

Blush Pink Blazer Print mixing stargazer scarf paisley print dress acne pistol boots

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon (navy blue) handbag

JacketJeanswest Nadine 3/4 Sleeve dusky pink blazer
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs Stargazer scarf in aquamarine (on sale!)
NecklaceHouse of Harlow Dynamic necklace in gold
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
BeltAsos skinny boyfriend belt (tied in a double loop knot using this tutorial)
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
Bracelets: the usual plus JORD black Fieldcrest wood watch (C/O)
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

the style challenge for the day was 'all tied up' so I took the chance to wear this blazer belted, as I've been wanting to do that for a while. I've worn this belt with the dress before, in summer, I really like the combination. I think that it looks better without the scarf for working in an office, but I wanted something to keep me cosy on the commute so I thought this scarf would be a nice mix of prints. After reviewing the photos I wasn't too sure about it, so I put the scarf away in my bag when I got to work.

This outfit is one I had in mind for wearing this dress after I was a little on the fence about it last time I wore it. I really liked the combination of the dress and blazer together, and so I'm going to keep the dress in my wardrobe still. Minus the scarf I felt comfortable and confident in this all day.


Last worn: blush pink blazer, MbMJ Stargazer scarf, tan belt, paisley print dress, Acne Pistol boots, Rebecca Minkoff navy MAB tote.

Other ways to wear: galaxy print scarf with stripes and purplepastel blazer with denim shorts, scarf, paisley print dress in summer with blue and silver accessories, pistol boots with denim shorts, MAB tote with office outfits.

Casual Denim Shorts Outfits - Stay At Home Mum Style

While I am back at work, I still have some days to spend with baby T, so I am getting to enjoy the more casual stay at home mum style outfits a little longer. Despite it being autumn, it's still quite warm in Brisbane and shorts and a tee is a good go-to. One day I tried to dress that casual outfit combination up a little, and the other I just kept it easy and simple.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with reaching for the same thing every day, parent or not. Some days just getting out of pyjamas is something to be celebrated, no matter what you've pulled on. And some days you don't have the time, energy or reason to wear anything other than PJs. I just want to try new things now and then and break away from the fail-safe outfits, wear more of what I have in my wardrobe instead of reaching for the same things over and over. Thank you for following along with my little journey! Hopefully you find something interesting or relevant or inspiring, just as I do reading other blogs.

What I wore:

Blush Pink Boyfriend Blazer graphic tee shorts acne pistol boots LV Speedy B

Away From Blue Handbag Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
JacketJeanswest Nadine 3/4 Sleeve dusky pink blazer
Top: gifted Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
ShortsJeanswest denim cuff shorts
BootsAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)

Why I wore it:

Another awesome Monster threads tee from my bestie! She got me one a couple years ago with a cute cat dog print on it. I actually got this tee for Christmas! I was doing a monthly style challenge on instagram in December so couldn't wear it right away, and then did another style challenge in January. This tee didn't fit any of the challenge prompts so I put it in my wardrobe to wear later...and it got lost in between all the other tees I have! I 'found' it again one day and knew I had to wear it. Isn't it cute?

This was a slightly more dressed up version of a comfortable casual jeans and tee outfit. I went out with DH and baby T to baby's favourite indoor playground. As it was a little cooler, I wanted to wear my blazer. And you have to wear socks to run around inside the ball pit and things, so closed in shoes were needed. I thought Pistol boots were a slightly more dressy option than Converse. I like wearing these shorts and boots together.

I have to say I really liked this outfit. I was a little unsure about the first two outfits with this new blazer, but I love it here. I wouldn't change a single thing about this outfit. I was really happy with how it turned out, and pleased at how quickly I could put my shoes on again after baby T had enough of playing and was ready for to go home for a nap - I just had to zip up my boots, no fiddling with laces!


Last worn: Ray-ban wayfarersblush pink blazer, denim shorts, Acne Pistol bootsLouis Vuitton Speedy bandouliere bag.

Other ways to wear: pastel pink blazer with a dress, wearing denim shorts in cooler weather, pistol boots with a dress.







What I wore:

casual grey tee and shorts wardrobe detox SAHM outfit LV Speedy B

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus necklace in pop
TopAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
ShortsJeanswest printed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus JORD black Fieldcrest wood watch (C/O)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, this is a plain and simple shorts and tee outfit. No modifications necessary. This is what I wore a few days after the outfit above, for my wardrobe detox with the personal stylist. I figured I'd need to wear something comfortable and easy to try clothes on with. As you can see I took it off and on a lot - got very creased. I wore the teething necklace just in case baby T got grouchy and needed to be kept amused as we sorted through my wardrobe. He ended up preferring the stylist's necklace over mine though, poor Maudie probably has some tiny teeth marks in her beautiful wooden statement necklace now!

This was good for running errands afterwards too - had to pop out to the post office to start my closet cleanout that I have on ebay. The majority of the things I have listed were things we decided just weren't doing any good for me any more during the detox. It was nice to get some more space in my wardrobe!


Last worn: grey tee, printed shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy B (above).

Other ways to wear: grey tee with a maxi skirtdressing up denim shorts, speedy B with a maxi skirt.

Blush Pink Boyfriend Blazer. With Striped Tank and Shorts, LBD and Heels for the Office

As part of my shopping in March, I crossed an item off my want list, a pastel pink blazer! I was really excited to find one at a good price in the outlets, and excited to wear it. I'm worried it was a case of something looking great in the change room and not working when you get it home as neither of these outfits are really striking me as great outfits...sharing them anyway.

What I wore:

Pastel Pink Boyfriend blazer worn with denim shorts autumn pink

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere
Jacket: Jeanswest Nadine 3/4 Sleeve dusky pink blazer (new purchase)
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Tank: AT By Atmos&Here Orion stripe tank
ShortsJeanswest printed denim shorts
ShoesAsos 'five star' leather sandals
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere (with Coach feather bag charm)

Why I wore it:

I was excited for a slightly cooler day so I could wear my new blazer! I really wanted to wear this with jeans but despite the rain it was extremely humid, so shorts it was.

Thought this dressed up a shorts and tank outfit nicely, although it does look a little odd in the photos. I think it's the length of the shorts and the blazer not working well together. We went out for lunch and a little bit of shopping.


Last worn: stripe tank, printed shorts, leather sandals, Louis Vuitton Speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the blazer.

Other ways to wear: striped tank and paisley print skirt, printed shorts in summer, sandals with dressesspeedy bandouliere with skirts.









What I wore:

dusty pink pblazer french conenction little black dress Balenciaga part time heels office wear

Away From Blue Blog Balenciaga Part Time Bag
JacketJeanswest Nadine 3/4 Sleeve dusky pink blazer (new purchase)
Scarf: Paris print silk scarf
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressFrench Connection fitted little black dress
Shoes: Wittner 'Bloomy' black heels
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Firstly, let me say that I know this outfit would have looked better without a headband. With running late, only having a few hours sleep, having a bad hair day and not having hair long enough to tie back, I had to go for a quick fix and settled on the scarf. Probably looked a little out of place in the office. I had one colleague tell me I "looked very 1930s". I just said thanks and that I'd take it as a compliment! It had been a tough night with an unsettled baby so I was more impressed I made it to work on time and less worried about the overall outfit.

Last time I wore this dress I was using the cut to disguise what I thought was a very visible first trimester baby bump. It has a little gathered section under the fitted waistband that's quite flattering and hides a slightly protruding belly! Works post-baby too ;)


I'm trying to review all my new purchases on the blog, to encourage myself to style things differently when I buy them and think about how they will work in my wardrobe, to make sure I'm not buying things that will just sit in my wardrobe unworn and adding to my overflowing closet. You can read more about why I'm doing this here.


As it's the second time I've worn this blazer, my purchase review:

This blazer is something I've been wanting for a while! It's a cute dusty pastel pink, and after seeing all the northern hemisphere bloggers with their pastel pink coats for winter I thought I'd buy into the trend for autumn. Don't really need a wool coat in Brisbane, a blazer will do. When I tried it on in store I tried it with a pair of skinny jeans and thought it looked good. A little creased and crumpled, but I reasoned that as it was spring stock it was bound to get a little creased from being in the outlet a few months. After wearing it once above, I quickly realised it was the material itself - it creases so easy. And dry clean only is not ideal for life with baby! Pastel pink is not the best colour on me (I now know after my personal stylist session), and the long-line boyfriend style length is not great on a petite frame.

However, I'm keeping this jacket. I really want to make it work! Even if I do have to iron it constantly, and neither of these are my favourite outfits. I know that when the cooler weather eventually comes to Brisbane (still in shorts in Autumn!) I will be able to wear it with jeans. And I could try belting it too, and wearing it with brighter scarves and tops to balance out the paler blazer. What do you think? How else would you style this blazer? Or should I just cut my losses and admit I was too overexcited by finding a pastel pink blazer to consider how it really looks on me?

BagBalenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang


Nice casual Saturday outfit. I bought a couple of basics in The Iconic sale last week, this was one of them and I love it. So comfortable and perfect for the weekends. Thought the printed scarf would be nice with the stripes.

Was a lovely day weather-wise so walked to the stores to run errands and took Cooper to the groomers. He needed a trim, his fur was getting much longer and it was drawing more attention to the side of him that was shaved for his op. Now his fur is shorter it's a little harder to notice :)

Felt like something was missing from this outfit - maybe a necklace or scarf? Decided just to keep it simple though for a lazy Sunday. DH and I had planned to head to the beach with Cooper but the constant rain in the morning ruined our plans. Went out for lunch instead, and of course I had Church Online in the evening. If you like movies, check it out, we are watching movies all week.

Have been wanting to try pink with this jacket since I bought it. While I was contemplating the purchase, I kept thinking if it would really work in my wardrobe. And of course I could see it with greys and blacks and cream...and then I remembered this pink top. Just had to give this a try, as I love pink and blue together. And my favourite jeans of course ;) Glad it's not too cold so I can wear a tank in the office and just a jacket over the top outdoors.

Despite almost losing my voice I still had to give a little presentation at work on Wednesday, so dragged myself out of bed to go in. I wanted to be comfortable more than anything, so wore a nice tee under my pencil skirt and of course a big scarf to keep me warm.

Another big scarf! It was a little too warm for this scarf today, although it was nice in the air conditioning at work and I wanted to keep my neck bundled up. There is probably zero benefit to my health but something in my brain just wants to wear scarves when I'm unwell. Maybe it's to lessen the blow of having to get out from under the doona each morning, haha!

I tried on a few printed scarves with this dress but wasn't quite sure that they looked okay, so went for the safe option with this big white pashmina instead. Would you wear a printed scarf with this dress? What do you think?

Close up of accessories and clutch:

Wanted to wear something comfortable yet suitable for dinner, so I went for a printed dress again. I really like the print on this dress and thought it would go well with my yellow clutch. I need to make an effort to wear my clutches more often, and yesterday was a good day to do so as I didn't have to carry much. The tan sandals seemed like an obvious choice to match the tan belt the dress came with.


The sunnies were last worn here, and clutch here. This is the first time I've worn the dress as it was a recent gift, and first time I've worn the sandals as they were a recent sale purchase.

Just a nice casual outfit to beat the heat today! I was a little worried that this top would be too long to pair with the shorts and I'm not 100% convinced now I see the photos. Won't pair these shorts and that tank together again. What do you think?

Not the best outfit shot but I had to share with you the amazing view the venue had! We got to watch the sunset and there was even fireworks over the river. Just beautiful.

I wasn't sure what to expect for DH's work Christmas part as the dress code was "smart casual" which can have incredibly varied interpretations. I was happy with the maxi dress though, it was a very formal venue and I was comfortable all night. Some of the other ladies I met and chatted too had the same thoughts that I did - a dress always fits in! :)

Forgot to give a round up of my Buy Nothing New Month progress at the end of October! Total of 2 bracelets, some clothes from cotton on, a book and some Christmas presents bought new. Not bad, although I could have done better I was quite proud I didn't buy as much as I usually would. Did you do Buy Nothing New Month in October? How did you go?


You could win this blouse and more in my giveaway! :)
