Marc By Marc Jacobs Little Ukita Bag in Rock Lobster With Boho Dress and Maxi Skirt

Like every other mum, I've been using my cross body bags more and more often now that baby T is crawling around the place. I have a little hook on the stroller I use to clip my handbags to, but I'm finding it easier to have a bag I can just throw over my shoulder when we are out. I bought my Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag while I was pregnant as a replacement for my Balenciaga Velo that I'd feel more comfortable wearing and using with a little baby in tow, and I've been enjoying wearing it lately.

ShoesAsos 'five star' leather sandals
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster

Why I wore it:

Took advantage of a day I didn't have to go into the office by travelling into the city with baby to met hubby for a lunch date. It was a really warm day, so a simple dress seemed like the best option to wear. I've worn this dress and these sandals together before. It's a good combination for a hot day. I wasn't sure about the pink sandals and the red bag at first, but I think they were far enough apart that it worked okay. My little Ukita bag is 'rock lobster' which isn't really a true red, but not a true pink either, it's kind of in-between. It pretty much looks a different colour in every picture!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Jeanswest printed dress, Asos leather sandals, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita.

Other ways to wear: boho printed dress with ankle boots, pink leather sandals with more blue outfits, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita with stripes and a third trimester baby bump.

Why I wore it:

Wore this out for a girly day of shopping (with baby T). Last time I wore this cami I wore it with the same bag! I do like wearing this top with red. This outfit was something a little different from my usual. I've worn this skirt with voluminous tops before, although most times I do I wish I had worn a simpler top. I think it was a bit much volume with the ruffle on the cami. After wearing my bag with pink sandals the day before, I wanted to try pair it with something else I wouldn't normally, and thought this maxi skirt would be interesting. I actually liked this combination, I think the bright bag went well with the different red shades in the skirt.

We had a really productive day of shopping! I spent a couple of gift cards in the Jeanswest outlet. I'll have my usual monthly purchase video up at the end of the month, but if you can't wait you can see what I bought through LikeToKnow.It.

    1. It is tricky juggling a baby bag, a handbag and a baby...but I'm getting better at it. Being able to clip my handbags onto the stroller helps! :)

  2. that dress is so lovely...and the second look is also really pretty. I love that maxi skirt.

    the red bag works great with both outfits!

  3. Love that pretty little dress, and the color blocked skirt. Totally different looks, but both fun!

  4. That first dress is a go-to goodie - you're dressed and looking great in a minute !
    I love to read about other brands in other parts of the world. For example Jeanwest has almost disappeared from where I am from, I read about it and I can almost not believe there is even an outlet !

    1. I'm spoiled for choice with the jeanswest outlets near me! I'm really lucky that way, as it's hands down my favourite brand!
      And any printed dress is a great outfit in an instant! That's what I love about printed dresses :)

  12. You are wearing one of my favourite maxi skirts from you in the second outfit picture. There is something about the colour blocking, the length and the flowy-ness of the fabric that sings to me <3

    1. It is one of my favourite maxi skirts too. I'm so glad I picked it up in the asos sale! I was a little unsure at first, glad I decided to give it a go.

  13. I think a crossbody bag is a great investments - it's just easier to be hands-free. Love this new one you got! The color is so pretty!

  22. That's actually a great vibrant colour bag, and perfect in my opinion for spring/summer transition. I love your first outfit, the print is really lovely. I am finding that even though I need larger bags regularly, I am loving the versatility of my crossbody bags quite a lot lately. /Madison

    1. You're right, cross body bags are so versatile :) I like bright bags year-round, but especially in the winter when I tend to wear darker outfits, they are a nice touch of colour! :)

  23. I love the colour of that bag, I guess you'd call it raspberry. Or maybe lobster? Whatever they look like when they're boiled lol.

    1. I do think 'rock lobster' is a weird name for it, it's pink in some lights red in others though so that in itself is weird I guess, ha!

  24. I think the top and skirt pair really well together with the red in the pattern and in the skirt. And your red bag looks so good with both outfits! I just got a red bag and you are giving me lots of inspiration!

    1. It's funny, I never loved the hillier as much as I liked this! I felt the hillier was tricky to get in and out of sometimes, don't feel that with the Ukita so much.

  42. Your hair is so cute curled. I have a similar Marc by Marc Jacobs purse that I use all the time too, it's just so much easier with a cross body even if my baby is not a baby anymore.
