Bright Maxi Dresses, Rebecca Minkoff Cross Body Bags

I've been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff bags a lot! They are perfect for wearing cross body, allowing me to be hands-free which is essential for chasing after a toddler.

What I wore: 

AwayFromBlue | Third Trimester summer BBQ outfit MEV Havana maxi dress magenta purple bag

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum with faux fur pom pom charm
Necklace: Eye Candy LA gold and turquoise cuff necklace
DressMEV Havana maxi dress C/O Zibibo
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

After a busy morning rushing around trying to get everything cleaned and organised, we had a wonderfully relaxed afternoon. We had a few friends around for a BBQ, so I knew I wanted to wear this maxi dress. It makes such a simple outfit. Comfortable and just as perfect during pregnancy as it is post-baby, plus I love the colour.

I've worn the magenta dress and purple bag together before, it's a colour combination I really like.


Last worn: maternity maxi dress, gold glitter belt, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote.

SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey (on sale here!)
DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale, also on sale in yellow!)

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, when I wore this dress I hadn't been planning the outfit in advance. I threw this on because it was hot and humid and despite feeling terrible, I had to take toddler T and myself to the doctors as we were both unwell. The maxi dress seemed like the easiest option to be as unrestricted as possible. The wonderful air conditioning at the doctors was a welcome reprieve from the heat too.

Kept the accessories simple - my metallic mini MAC bag and House of Harlow necklace which always look good together.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, blue printed maxi dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC bag.

  4. So excited to be back, I can't wait to catch up on all your posts, darling! <3 As always, both outfits are absolutely gorgeous - the first dress especially is so lovely! Pink is my favourite colour although I could never pull it off; it looks so wonderful on you, though! I also like how versatile the first dress is - it seems fab for casual wear, but I think it could work nicely as a going out dress with some nice accessories. :) <3 Hope you're well!!! Kisses. x x

  14. Both maxi dresses are wonderfully stylish and feminine...and they both look fantastic on you. I love the pink one so much...such a great shade of pink...the second (the blue one) is also lovely and I do like that mini bag you paired it with. Sorry to hear you had to go to a doctors' office. I hope you and your son feel better now.

    Have a great start of the week.

    You look lovely in these maxis - they really suit you. I love your bags, but I'm really a one-bag woman (I know, I'm weird!). I did just buy a new one on the weekend: a metallic snakeskin leather by Danier! I thought of you!

  53. Hope you guys are feeling better Mica! Getting sick during your pregnancy and also taking care of a sick toddler in the dead of summer is harder than I could ever imagine. Wishing you both a speedy recovery! Looking gorgeous in both of these maxi dresses. The magenta one is my favorite because the color looks so nice on you Mica. Anyways, thank you for the support and kind words about my store. Means a lot to me! <3

During this beautiful time of your life you want to make sure each outfit not only makes you feel awesomely pretty but it also needs to make you comfortable as well. I think both colors work for you and am looking forward to seeing more of your outfits!
