Monochrome Maxi Skirt Outfits: Chambray and Grey with Rebecca Minkoff Accessories

I've been enjoying wearing my Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag lately. As I showed in a previous post, the mustard yellow colour is nice with a neutral outfit as well as other brights. I've worn it with denim shorts but below I'm wearing it with my other favourite option, maxi skirts!

If you're enjoying cooler weather right now, you should check out my guest post on Shea's blog showing different ways to style maxi skirts in fall. I wear my maxi skirts year round, not just in spring and summer.

What I wore:

SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
Tee: Kmart blue marle tee (new purchase)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

First wearing of my new tee. ($3 at Kmart, they have an awesome selection of basics at the moment!) I thought it would look nice with this maxi skirt. I've worn the skirt with a navy tee before and liked the colour combination but didn't like how the pieces sat together. I much preferred this blue tee with the chambray skirt. I thought the yellow bag was a good piece to break up all of the blue, and the nude Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals were perfect as well.

This is what I wore when I went out to catch up with some other mums and bubs from the Australian Breastfeeding Association. I hadn't been along to the group in a while with everyone being unwell so much over winter, but we were all better and had the morning free to attend for once.

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Same accessories, same outfit formula! Monochrome maxi skirt with a tee, teething necklace, Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals and micro Regan satchel. When you like an outfit why not try recreate it again? I do it a lot!

This was a quieter day - a little bit of shopping and errands in the morning and then spending time with my mum in the afternoon. Just like the monochrome maxi skirt outfit above, this was easy to wear. This is an old grey tee that's one of my favourites, although I wear it sparingly as I don't want to wear it out too soon! I wore it to 'announce' my pregnancy with baby T in the office couple of years ago.

Even with the colourful outfit and bag though I felt this outfit was missing something - I like grey but this was a little too much. I think a kimono or scarf to add some more colour would have been perfect. I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above.

  12. You are certainly a maxi skirt master! Love the way you style them (year round)! I love both outfits , as usual, but I love the little half-tuck you did in the first outfit!

  20. I find maxi skirts quite hard to style, on me they always look like you just couldn't be bothered.

  21. I like both outfits! I think the first one though, because of the blue, offers a greater contrast to the yellow. Anyhoo, that was a great post on Shea's blog. I have a few sewing patterns for a maxi skirt but have not gotten to them yet. I think I will soon now! You wear them so well:)

  23. Two awesome monochromatic looks Mica! I love the blue on blue and grey on grey. Your new handbag looks great with both outfits. I've always been a fan of chambray.

  28. I find that all grey outfits can be super tricky to style. It's not like black, where that combo just seems to work on it's own. I totally agree that greys need to be broken up with something else. I'd love to see you retry the grey look with one of your lovely scarves or kimonos. (:

  30. I remember that in high school my favourite combinations were grey and pink, grey and light blue and of course grey and light yellow so this look is perfect in my eyes.

  31. I love that you always offer several styling options for one piece, in this case it's the yellow Rebecca Minkoff (which is so cute by the way!)
    Have a great rest of your week!
