Blues, Whites And Prints
Wearing monochromatic colours always gives the illusion of being slimmer than you really are. I chose to go with blue for this outfit worn last week when I was taking Elly to the clinic. These navy blue ankle length pants have been a favourite since I became a mum. Because I had a Caeserean Section, I could only wear high waisted trousers or skirts so I was pretty excited when I got these. The shirt is an oldie but still a favourite. The fabric contains a bit of stretch so it fits beautifully post-baby.
I chose white accessories to complement the blue and white printed shirt: white loafers which were a gift from The Man and a tote (which I use as a baby bag) which was a Christmas gift from my brother (who made this website by the way). This light purple lipstick, which is more like lilac/lavender is a newly discovered favourite. When I bought it I didn’t particularly like it but over time I have grown to love it. I like to wear it when I want a subtle, glammed up look.
I went out of my way to style my hair, yeah, I’m lazy like that. This was day two of my hair styling challenge. If you want to see more of my hair styles, be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram (@inches2style) for daily updates.
