Lilac Tank, Pleated Skirt, Embellished Clutch | Printed Dress, MbMJ Scarf, Chloe Marcie Bag

Here's what I wore on Sunday:



Top: Kmart lilac basic singlet
Skirt: Vintage black pleated midi skirt from my Mum's closet
Belt: Forever New 'orchid petal' skinny belt (New purchase)
Shoes: Novo 'Tahnee' black studded sandals (New purchase)
Bracelets: the usual plus Forever New coral / white wrap around charm bracelet (New Purchase)
Bag: Forever New 'Poppy' gunmetal embellished clutch (New purchase)


A relaxing Sunday after a busy Saturday with the girls! The warm weather made it the perfect time to wear some of my newly purchased spring accessories together. Although we weren't going out anywhere fancy, I was really looking for a chance to wear this beautiful beaded clutch. I thought it added a nice bit of interest to the outfit.


Last worn: vintage pleated skirt. The tank I've had a while but this is the first time it's been worn un-layered on the blog. Everything else was a new purchase from the weekend shopping trip!





Here's what I wore to work today:



ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs Island pine-print scarf
DressFrench Connection 'pendragon panache' cap sleeve dress in 'winters day base'
Belt: Forever New 'White Croc' skinny belt (New Purchase)
Shoes: Novo 'Camilla" brown bow flats (New purchase)
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design labradorite bracelets
BagChloe Marcie medium hobo bag in Nut


Wearing more new things from the DFO shopping trip on the weekend! I thought the brown flats and white belt would work well with this printed dress, and I needed a nice simple outfit option for a big meeting this morning. A printed dress is always a good choice for work :)

Linking up with Sunday Style, My Style Monday, Style Sessions, Trend Spin today.

  13. I have to get some of those thin belts. They just seem to tie everything together for you in so many outfits! Love how you're doing your hair with a slight curl to it lately. Trying to work out how you're doing it.... sparkle2day.com

    1. Yes the thin belts work in so many outfits! I'm using them a lot lately, haha.

      And my hair is simply my natural waves not being fully straightened every morning - I'm getting lazier with my straightener, haha.

  21. Mica, yap that red mac has some major fading around the corners as well as the bottom. I had the camera setting in "pop" so it didn't show up as obvious sadly :/

  27. Oh seeing you in your cute maxi skirt just reminded me I have one somewhere. Must find it! I think brown flats / white shoes from your DFO haul goes very nicely with the dress.. and that Chloe of course! So jealous of your shopping trip - it looked really fun! <3
