Casual Summer Singlet and Shorts, RM Mini MAC | Vintage Print on Print, Marco Tagliaferri Bag

Here's what I wore to work from home on Tuesday:
casual summer graphic tank and shorts outfit combo

metallic silver RM mini MAC bag
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Top: Jeanswest flower graphic print grey singlet
Shorts: Jeanswest printed denim shorts
Shoes: gifted Havaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Just a casual but comfortable outfit to work from home. I last wore this tank on boxing day last year, it's been almost a year since I wore it last! But I like the print, the super soft fabric, and how light it is for summer. It will stay in my wardrobe for the moment, and I'll try wear it more often to justify keeping it.

This bag I have no trouble wearing a lot - it's the perfect size for the essentials. Rebecca Minkoff have a "holiday hook-ups special" on at the moment, every day there is a new sale or discount. Today's deal is 40% off selected items with the code 'MERRYMINI'. If I hadn't recently gotten a bag for my birthday, I'd be getting the yellow one, isn't it beautiful?




Last worn: grey floral singlet, printed denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC.



Here's what I wore to work today:
vintage printed two piece suit worn together with skinny belt

marco tagliaferri birk bag worn
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace
Top: vintage print top from the Thrifty Kitten
Belt: Asos metal keeper skinny waist belt in bright blue
Skirt: vintage pencil skirt from The Thrifty Kitten
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Marco Tagliaferri first generation Birk bag in navy


And it's been a year and a half since I last wore this top...I definitely have too many clothes in my wardrobe! I've been thinking about pairing the top and skirt together for a while. When I bought the set, I didn't imagine I'd ever wear them together, but have been inspired by the way Sam from Style of Sam rocks the vintage pieces her Grandmother gives her, I thought I've give it a go and wear the pieces together the way they were intended. Apart from the top being a bit uncomfortable and moving around a lot, I think it looked okay. What do you think?

Linking up with Fashion Informant, Spotlight Weekly linkup, Three-fer Thursday, What I Wore Wednesday today.

  4. Your work look is superb. Funny thing I had to look at the picture several times after reading your text as i could have sworn it was a dress. For me it's kind of difficult to imagine NOT pairing these two together.

    1. I wasn't sure if the print on print would be too much together, but I think the belt helps there :)
