Neon Pink Mini MAC Bag With Neutral and Colourful Maxi Skirt Outfits

My less-than-perfect hair in both of these outfits was due to me trying to come up with a new no-heat method for curling my hair before baby boy's birthday party. I'm growing my hair out to donate it, and so my usual go-to trick wasn't really working on my thick layer-less hair. I tried a couple different methods instead.

I really liked the outfits though, despite not liking my hair! Stripes and maxi skirts with a bright and colourful bag is an outfit formula I'll always return to.

What I wore:

SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
SkirtJeanswest Luxe maxi jersey skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC (on sale!)
NailsOPI Rich Girls and Po Boys

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit. Last time I wore this skirt with a striped tank I wasn't so impressed with the result, but these pieces together I loved. The only thing I didn't like about this outfit was when I stood in a puddle and got the hem of my maxi skirt wet! Until that point, it had been a good outfit to wear when having some work done on the house and then running a few errands.

This neon pink mini MAC bag is a great pop of colour against the black and white, especially when paired with the colourful teething necklace. I've worn the bright accessories with striped maxi skirt outfits before too, in this post.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, striped tank, drawstring waist maxi skirt, Havaianas, neon pink mini MAC bag.

Why I wore it:

Luckily I managed to avoid the puddles when I wore this! This was a nice easy outfit, perfect for Baby Boy's weekly weigh and then spending time with my mum and sister in the afternoon.

As I liked the accessories in the outfit above, I wore them together again the next day with this similar outfit. Unlike the first outfit, this one was a little more colourful with the blue and purple accessorised with pink. The purple tank and navy skirt have been worn together before too. That last time I picked a neutral bag instead.

I have a few colourful bags and while my favourite way to wear them will always be as a single pop of colour against a neutral outfit, sometimes it's nice to try wearing something more colourful. I'm trying to be more adventurous with colours in my wardrobe and wear different combinations.

Last worn: purple fitted tank, navy stripe maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearpurple tank and a baby bump, navy stripe maxi skirt and Louis Vuitton Neverfull, studded sandals and breastfeeding dresses, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC and floral kimono.

How You Can Wear It:

A brightly coloured handbag can be worn just as much as a neutral one. If you're not sure how to wear it, you can't go wrong letting the bag be a single pop of colour against a monochrome or neutral outfit. You can be bolder and wear it with a brightly coloured outfit too - stick to colour combinations you often wear and you'll find a bright bag is an easy addition.

  1. Just from looking at your pictures I thought about how pretty your hair looked, then I read the first paragraph. Really, I do like your haur a lot in this first picture!

  2. Such cute outfits! I love the first one especially with the pop of pink against the black and white, it has a bit of a retro vibe I've always loved. Also, that's so thoughtful of you to grow out your hair for the sole purpose of donating it! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great day!



  3. Oh, I love that bright pink bag! What a fabulous accessory. Your purple/pink/blue combo is perfect, Mica. I like your idea of pulling a yellow scarf out for your purple maxi (per your comment on my blog). Colour!

  4. I really love your hair! I think the waves are just right! I have yet to master a heatless way to make waves in my hair, it's so thin, it doesn't hold anything. Love your outfits too!

    Pumps & Push-Ups

  5. I really like my bright pink bag, but I hardly ever wear it, I think letting it pop against the neutrals works the best though!

  6. I think it's so sweet you are growing your hair out to donate it! I also give you mad props for doing so. When my layers grow out, I get so cranky and do nothing but pony tail it for weeks. Then, I typically chop it all off. (; Totally what happened this last time. lol I hope you're able to find something that works for you!

    I actually don't have anything for pop of color in terms of accessories. A few of my kimonos are busy, and I pair them with super neutral tops and a pair of jeans. (:

  7. Your hair looks good to me! I'm in that stage where I like how long it is but it also annoys me so I'm thinking of getting it cut...GAH! Haha

  8. Oh wow I can totally relate to getting the hem of jeans or dress wet in a puddle. luckily you were wearing a dark skirt ;)
    I like that first look and think its so nice of you to donate your hair. My husband donated his a few years ago.

  9. I think the black and white look is lovely against the bright pink colour. It's also always nice to donate and give back, you look adorable with a longer hairdo. Have a great week, Mica! x/Madison

  10. That hot pink bag is so fun, I love it! And I like your wavy hair! How long will it get before you donate it?? That is awesome that you're doing that. Have a great week Mica!

  11. I totally love the bright pop of pink! I hope your little man is getting better and the dr. appointment went well!

  12. I am really liking the bright pops of color with these two outfits! That pink bag is darling! I have a bright pink bag, but don't think to pair it with anything but black. You've inspired me to try it with other bright colors!

  13. I was just going to comment on your hair looking the waves and the idea of donating it!

  14. Your wavy hair is so pretty! I love the contrast of the bright pink bag against the darker colors of these outfits!

  15. Your hair looks good! Loving the bright neon with stripes, the perfect pop to your outfit. Thank you for linking up with Weekend Wear
