Prints: Jeans, Henley Tops and Rebecca Minkoff Silver Mini MAC

As the weather warms up and spring arrives, it's nice to wear my henley tops again and not worry about jackets. Long sleeves don't get worn much in summer so I need to maximise the wearing of these comfy tops in winter.

What I wore:

Flares and converse, striped henley and MbMJ galaxy print scarf | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC bag bracelet stack | Away From The Blue
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs Stargazer scarf in aquamarine
TopJeanswest 'Melanie' Stripe henley in black/coconut
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in black!)

Why I wore it:

An easy playgroup outfit: stripes, flares and Converse. As we would be outside in the playground, I added the scarf to keep me cosy, and it doubles as a breastfeeding coverup too.

I like the extra colour the galaxy print scarf adds, and it's a nice bit of print mixing with the stripes.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, galaxy print scarf, striped henley, flared jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this colourful teal henley for the first day of spring. I started playing along with a couple of instagram style challenges again, and this was a good colourful jacket-less outfit for the 'spring has sprung' #TRMstyle prompt.

I've always found this teal top a little hard to wear, but since adding more green to my pregnancy wardrobe and having a green tank in my third trimester capsule wardrobe, I'm finding it really easy to wear and I can't believe I ever thought of getting rid of it! I don't think I will ever get bored of wearing this top and scarf together, I've done it a few times now. With the teal top and blue and teal scarf, the silver mini MAC was a great neutral bag so I wore it again.

  3. Henleys make for a great transitional piece. I also love it when the weather permits wearing them without a jacket. You have the cutest collection of scarves Mica!

  7. I'm a fan of henley tops, I have a henley jumper that I always wear every year.I like your second look colour, especially the teal. Glad that you could style it in your own way, even though you felt it was hard to wear before. The first look is my favourite.

  17. I am not familiar with the brand Henleys but will check them out for sure. Your winter must be really mild, what's the lowest temperature you guys have in winter?

    1. Yeah we don't even get snow here in Brisbane! And it's usually pretty warm during the day :) Henley is a style, not a brand name, so you should be able to find them easy :)

  19. I like the mix of prints in the first outfit. Pairing that striped long sleeve top with that scarf was a lovely style choice. That first outfit is very stylish and cute.

    The second outfit I like because it is all about the blue and I love blue. The scarf in this outfit is also very chic and I do like the printed pants.

  27. I love the teal top! I too have struggled with certain colors and if I just embrace a color and figure out how to wear it with one outfit I usually am able to love it! It just takes some learning!

  35. You look lovely Mica! Teal suits you perfectly, and the top looks beautiful on you. It was the right decision to keep it! I also love the burgundy watch, which is a chic alternative to classic black. It's strange to think spring has just arrived for you, while the
    autumn season is starting here, on the other side of the globe!

  38. I really like these kind of tops, Henley tops is the correct name? I have two, one that I added in my pregnancy and one as a recent purchase. I do wear them in summer as well, but I feel like my summer weather is like yours in spring.
