Simple Spring Outfit: Grey Tee, Skinny Jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini Bag

If I had to pick just one most versatile item of clothing, it would be a grey tee. Although I don't have the 14 I used to, I still have quite a few in my wardrobe. Far more than anyone reasonably needs... You can't beat a classic skinny jeans and grey top combination though, it's simple spring dressing!

A good grey handbag is another versatile piece that goes with everything. The Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini bag I'm wearing and love so much has been discontinued, but I've been able to find a few second hand ones that I have listed below - all under $200! Use the code 'FALLFAVES' for an extra 20% off too! If you're looking elsewhere for one, it can be called a MAM or mini MAB as well.

What I wore:

spring outfit grey tee and skinny jeans Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag | Away From Blue

NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace layered with Tai gold alphabet necklaces
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (20% off with code FALLFAVES)

Why I wore it:

I didn't try meet the style challenge for the day I wore this - I picked the simple grey tee and jeans combo to wear to our family photoshoot. At the baby expo a few months ago I entered a competition and actually won a photo session!

When toddler T was 6 months old we used a gift voucher we were given to get some family photos so I was so excited to be able to get updated ones now baby boy is 6 months old. They suggested bringing along a few outfit changes, but with a toddler and an infant and a dog to get photos of, I figured one outfit was enough and we just went casual in denim. I bought the boys little matching tees too and they looked adorable! I'm looking forward to seeing the resulting photos.


Last worn: grey tee, skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB.

Other ways to weargrey tee in the office, skinny jeans and blazer, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB and maternity pencil skirt.



Where to Buy the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag:

Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (20% off with code FALLFAVES)

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'simple', so again I wore a grey and denim combo. Instead of the delicate and sentimental necklaces I wore above, I went for a big teething necklace. It added a nice bit of colour to my outfit, and helped keep baby boy amused! Was a quiet day, spent some time with my mother in law in the afternoon.

  4. I liked your T-shirt, leggings and especially the grey bag, very much! I think it's all very versatile and every taste. I liked your necklace, as well! Some people would wear the outfit with boots, some with a scarf and it totally changes the look -so your choice is really, really versatile, as I said! Well done! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I second the basic tee rule. Especially the grey. (; I own more grey than anything and I'm not sorry. lol Grey is the best and a color that will never not be on trend. Simple will always outweigh fad fashion. I hope your photos turn out amazing!

  10. Ha ! I see the grey tees made it out of the closet Mica !
    I love grey - It did not hit me how versatile this color was until a few years ago I picked up a grey bag. At the moment I thought it would be nice to have a bag that was not black, little did I know that NOW its one that I wear A LOT. After I got the bag then I began getting grey shoes...

  14. I have a gray tee with ruffled sleeves and I love it, I like how yours matches your Rebecca Minkoff bag. I bought my first Rebecca Minkoff bag a few months ago. It is more of a spring bag and I can not wait to use it.

  15. You are so right babe, a grey tee, or any neutral tee for that matter is such a versatile wardrobe essential. I'll even wear mine with skirts and shorts and you can layer on when its cooler in the fall and winter months!

  28. Despite my penchant for t-shirts, and the fact that my closet holds a lot of grey clothing, I don't think I've ever worn a grey t-shirt, you know that? It looks good on you though, and I can see how it would make a great basic.

    How do you like teething necklaces? Do you find them helpful? My son has been teething for the last month (with nothing poking through yet, poor little guy). Would you recommend them?

    1. It's a must-have basic for me, I can't imagine my wardrobe without it, haha!

      I hope teething is over for you soon, it's tough! At home I prefer teethers I've stored in the fridge, but when I'm out the necklaces are perfect for baby to gnaw on or just to play with and keep him amused. I definitely recommend them :)

  32. I think I own too many grey t-shirts and they are perfect for those days when you have no inspiration, a grey t-shirt always saves the day! I love wearing it with jeans or a denim skirt and I always add a statement necklace to upgrade my outfit!
