Maxi Skirts and Graphic Tees: Dressed Up With a Cardi, Dressed Down With A Hoodie

Continuing to wear my maxi skirts as they fit my knee bandage underneath while still keeping me warm as we move into spring in Brisbane. (These pics were taken a few weeks ago near the end of winter). Decided to wear some of my grapic tees, as I haven't worn them in a while.

What I wore:

Grey maxi skirt navy graphic tee purple cardi LV neverfull bag casual SAHM style

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull
JacketJeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
Top: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
Skirt: Target grey marle maxi skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bag:  Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! I've mentioned before how much I love the tee (a gift from my bestie) and I thought the purple cardi and the grey skirt worked nicely with the navy. I was really comfortable and happy in this all day. Just had some errands to run in the morning, and a checkup at the doctors with baby T.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine
Tee: Threadless 'Stone Jungle' tee
Skirt:  Jeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoes:  Walnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine

Why I wore it:

This is a good example of how just changing one piece of an outfit can make it look really different. I think the grey hoodie dresses the outfit down and makes it a lot more casual than the outfit above with the cardigan. Still just as comfortable though, and perfect for a morning at playgroup with toddler T.

This Threadless tee hasn't been worn in over 3 and a half years (the length of time I've been blogging what I wear). I went through my huge box of Threadless tees and sold the majority on ebay a while back, but I kept this one as it was one of the first few I ordered, and I don't have a lot of green in my wardrobe. I don't have a lot of green as I don't wear it often...as the long time between wears for this tee shows! I'm still keeping it, too sentimental to let go. At least I sold the 20+ other ones I hadn't been wearing, to justify keeping this one.


Last worn: Ray-ban Wayfarers, grey hoodie, black jersey maxi skirt, black ballet flats (above), Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC.

  8. This is one of the first lessons I learned from Audrey of Putting Me Together--how making simple changes to your outfit can change the whole look. There was a picture of her in her Rainbow sandals, graphic tee, flared jeans, and a hoodie. She swapped the flip flops for strappy sandals, skinny jeans, and a cardigan. So much dressier!

    1. It is interesting how easy it is to just change one or two pieces and have a completely different look. That's why I like accessories! :)

  14. I love pairing printed tees with cardi's. I haven't done this in ages myself, I used to a lot when I was younger and it kind of makes me miss those days. I'm going to have to incorporate this somehow. First I need to amp up my game on printed tees lol!

  15. I think prints suit you very well, Mica! Those can highlight every simple outfit. Love the versatility of your styling. Hope Toddler T is ok?! Have a great day, Mica!

    1. I was involved in a bus accident on the way to work a few weeks ago. Nothing serious, just tissue damage, so I'm doing a course of physio to get better! :)

  17. I too love a good tee and cardigan combo. Which I'll totally get to do this weekend due to the cool temps. (: I can't seem to make the maxi skirts work for me though. I literally tried so many on last weekend and no luck. I will forever be jealous of your ability to rock a maxi. (;

  18. You just remind me that I really don't have many graphic tees. I like them, especially here worn with your cardigan. The green colour suits you as well. Nice way to change up an outfit for a more casual look. <3 /Madison

  19. I always love how you think out of the box Mica. I constantly put graphic tees with jeans and now you've taught me to mix it up with a maxi skirt. Looks so cool together. And what a nice gift from your friend.
