Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Grey Tees and Printed Maxi Skirts: SAHM Style

This summer has definitely been the summer of shorts, but I haven't completely forgotten my maxi skirts! The classic combo of a printed maxi skirt and grey tee makes an easy, comfortable outfit that's perfect for running around with the kids.

What I wore:

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I was surprised to find I hadn't worn this tee and navy striped maxi skirt together before! I thought it was what I wore last time we went to hospital, but it was a different tee I wore then. This very similar outfit was worn again to the same hospital, but a day stay this time. I shared some pics on Twitter and my Instagram stories, as one of the boys had his first surgery.

There are a few times in adulthood I have a little panic to myself that "I'm not grown up enough for this", and having to comfort my child through an operation was one of those times. Thankfully, it was just a short day stay. The operation went well, and apart from being a little woozy afterwards, it was a smooth recovery.

I wasn't sure if I needed closed in shoes for the operating room, I forgot to ask with all the other questions I had, so I went with Converse just in case, even if I did take them off as soon as we got home. I picked comfortable clothes for all the sitting around waiting I was going to have to do, and my big Louis Vuitton neverfull to carry snacks and things to amuse me as I waited, with everything else in the baby bag. I've tried the neverfull as a baby bag before, as you can see in the video below, but I'm not a fan so it meant carrying two bags with me. Easy when I had the stroller to throw everything on.

It was a difficult day, made just a little easier by having a fuss-free outfit I was ready to face anything in. I'm just hoping to have no further days of hospital style!

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Onto happier days! I wore this the weekend before operation day. We'd planned a day out but after taking these photos and our morning walk, the rain showers started to we decided to stay home instead, after running a quick errand. In the end I think a quiet day was just what was needed as operation week was crazy.

Very similar outfit formula to the one above, with a more voluminous printed maxi skirt and a slouchier grey tee. This was a lovely outfit for a humid day, nice loose layers. The only thing I didn't like so much was that the hem of my skirt got wet quickly when the rain started. I really need to get this skirt properly tailored. I'm currently doing the well-known petite girl hack of wearing it higher on my waist and rolling the waistband to keep it in place. It's definitely proven it's a keeper in my wardrobe, so I need to get it tailored to be just the right length.

Again I was wearing my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote, although this time around it had a lot less stuffed into it. That's the beauty of the neverfull, it always looks good no matter if you carry a little or a lot.

How You Can Wear It:


With a printed maxi skirt (or any printed piece in your wardrobe) pairing it with a grey tee is an easy outfit formula to follow that's guaranteed to look good. If grey tees aren't your thing, you could substitute with a similar neutral like black or white. I'm just such a fan of grey v-neck tees, they are what I reach for most often when wearing prints.

  3. Oh I know how stressful it is when one of the kids has to go to hospital, and I can imagine the feelings you have when they go through their first surgery. Glad to hear everything is OK.

    Haha in my next post about baby bags I'll mention the LV Neverfull as a baby bag! I've used mine a few times as a baby bag but I think it's better when they're a bit older and you're not having to carry as much stuff. The straps are too thin for all the weight!

    1. The straps are way to thin for everything I carry in a baby bag anyway, haha! I enjoyed your posts, such a good series! :)

      He's doing well after the surgery :)

  9. I'm so glad the surgery went well. My son had to have tubes in his ears, which is a very minor procedure but it made me so anxious! Anything with the babies adds stress! You chose the perfect outfit for the day.

  15. The last thing on your mind is fashion when one of your children needs to have surgery and fuss-free is the way to go. I hope he had a quick recovery after the procedure.

  18. I don’t think we are ever old enough to comfort our kids through a operation, but that is adulthood: Comforting someone else when you actually want to be comforted yourself.

It's so hard to stay strong when you're worried about your child, but you got through it, which shows how strong you are. Both outfits are perfect for summer, Mica! I've worn maxi skirts a lot this summer too, as they are comfy and cool. Hope you've had a great week so far, Mica! :) XXX

  22. I can only imagine how you must've felt trying to calm your little one before the surgery. I know it must've been tough and something I don't believe any mom can be grown up enough to do. I'm glad the surgery went well and he's okay. You know, I've been thinking about getting the Neverfull in the GM size and use it as a diaper bag, too, now that Aviah is getting a little older and I don't need to carry as many things. I'll have to look into your video, though you're not too fond of it now. I'll have to see. Thanks for sharing and I hope you had a great week so far!

  26. Getting things tailored is always something I mean to do, but never get around to. That red skirt is gorgeous though so I hope you are able to make it happen so fits you perfectly! I love it with the grey tee. Sorry I haven't been keeping up on instagram or twitter and just found out about your son's surgery! Glad to hear everything went well. I hope recovery is quick and smooth!

  27. Neverfull looks lovely here. It's actually my least favorite model from Louis Vuitton because it normally just hard to style and look out of place. You nailed and showed the bright side of the bag

  29. I've always been a fan of navy & grey. You've also proven that it looks great with COLOR, such as red or orange. I need a grey tshirt in my wardrobe! You're always giving me ideas Mica. Love both outfits.
