2013 Week 36: My Wednesday Style Collective....

Keeping it post-pregnancy real, I'm struggling with my wardrobe at present. I'm still needing to drop a few extra kilograms before I can get back into my beloved vintage maxi and high waisted skirts and dresses with buttoned busts. Overall I'm at an in between phase, along with needing items of clothing that allow me to be able to breastfeed easily, so I'm currently (and temporarily) down to minimal suitable and fitting items that suit my tastes and style.

As I drop the extra kilograms over coming weeks, my options will increase but for now I'm feeling a little out of sorts and not myself when it comes to being entirely happy with outfits I can piece together at present. I do have plans to assist in resolving said quandary and have enlisted the sewing services of a friend who is going to whip me up some maxi and wrap skirts from vintage and retro linens and fabrics I have here. I do also have some vintage pieces that are en route to me from far off places, but it's all about being patient for all the above.

But not to be one to baulk on a Style Collective Post, here I am keeping it real with a super cute highlight to my outfit.
 Skirt - modern paisley print is a hand me down
Animal Print Tank Top - retail
Baby Carrier - Hug-a-Bub Ring Sling......I have used this one with all my babies - retail 5 years ago


Ok so Fraser's the highlight but that's allowed isn't it? For what it's worth Fraser's clothing is all gifted and thrifted or has been used with my other babies. He is wearing a all-in-one short sleeve and short leg suit in yellow with two toned green stripped baby leggings (not seen in pic). He is in cloth nappies which have also been used previously on his brother and sister. His whole ensemble hasn't cost me a cent.

Regardless of my temporary wardrobe woes I find it important to wake up each morning and make the effort to piece an outfit together, it lifts the spirits. But all that aside I'll take a snuggly day even if it's all day with my little man, even if it means I don't manage getting out of PJ's all day. Because at the end of the day they are so little, for such a short amount of time, and I'm happy to relish it.

He is adorable addition to your wardrobe. You look freaking amazing! But I remember that feeling just after I had Jarvis. Feeling empty, yet full (flabby) belly.Not sure what my body was doing, or how to carry it, even walking felt strange.

A little one in a sling is the cutest accessory I think.
You look amazing Trudie. x
