Maxi Skirts, Blue Scarves and LV Speedy Bandouliere

I have a lot of great scarves, but my favourites are definitely my blue ones. No surprise as it's my favourite colour! They are a great finishing touch to an outfit, even if it doesn't have any blue in it. Below are two outfits with blue scarves. One as an extra touch of blue to an outfit with blue in it already, and one adding some colour to a black outfit.

What I wore: 

Tartan scarf, chambray maxi skirt grey tee and cardi LV speedy bag | Away From The Blue

Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere handheld | Away From Blue
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Scarf: blue tartan scarf
TeeAsos new forever grey tee (on sale!)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt (on sale!)
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white (on sale in red!)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

After paying a small fortune to a big 'chain store' tailor after my little local lady shut up shop, I was happy to wear this now shortened maxi skirt again on a day it was scheduled to rain. There were no issues this time, unlike the last time where the too-long hem got wet in a puddle.

Wore this out for a trip into the city with my parents after toddler T's swim lessons. We did a lot of walking so I was glad I'd worn my Converse. Unfortunately the rain started soon after we arrived in the city so we didn't hang around long.


Last worn: grey cardigan, tartan scarf, grey tee, chambray maxi skirt, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to weargrey cardigan and flares, tartan scarf and stripes, grey tee and a red skirt, chambray maxi skirt with purple, Converse and a shift dress, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere and skinny jeans.

Scarf: navy bird print scarf
TeeGrey 'making magic happen' tee C/O Shein
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Cold and rainy day - not the best morning for playgroup but we headed out anyway. I was pleased it warmed up a little and the sun came out so toddler T could run around in the playground outside for while.

I felt this outfit was a bit dark, so the navy scarf was a nice way to add a little bit of colour without being too bright. I've worn this bird print scarf and striped maxi skirt together before, I really like the combination and I was just as comfortable and happy in this outfit as I was last time I paired those pieces together.

  3. I'm a little envious of your colder weather right now! LOVE the first outfit- something about light gray and light blue together just make me so happy, it feels princessy if the makes sense. And I love that second scarf, too!!

  19. I can't seem to style blue clothing properly, whenever I attempt to do it, it just doesn't looks right! I really like your first outfit, casual yet chic. I can't imagine walking in heels for long, trainers are the best :)

    1. Hey Mica ... for some reason I couldn't add a new comment this time around so I'm replying to one instead. I've been thinking about a denim maxi and you just may have been the deciding factor!

      And thanks for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!
