White Band Tees, Blue Maxi Skirts and Purple Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote

Thank you all for your support and encouragement when I launched my first ebook on Monday! An extra big thank you to those who supported me by sharing the post or buying a copy even though they aren't pregnant. I really appreciate it, the book took me a while to write and edit and I was so excited to share with you. Shea was kind enough to say some lovely things about it in her latest post too!

Now, part two of the post I made last week, showing another two ways to wear graphic tees. This time around I'm wearing two of my Kisschasy band tees with maxi skirts. Something different from the usual graphic tee and jeans outfit, but just as easy to wear.

What I wore:

Kisschasy band tee chambray maxi skirt easy outfit purple mini MAB bag | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag cross body | Away From The Blue
Tee: band tee from KissChasy "Bones and skin" tour
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Of all the Kisschasy band tees I have, this one has to be my favourite. Which is kind of funny as I missed most of the show on the Bones & Skin tour. The scary at the time (but funny afterwards) story of how we ended up spending most of the gig in a hospital waiting room will mean it's one of the more memorable shows despite only seeing a little part of it.

Wore this for a quiet Saturday running a few errands. The chambray maxi skirt is only slightly different from wearing this band tee with jeans, but I feel it's a very different look. Comfortable and perfect for a day running around with the boys. Also pleased how perfectly the graphic print lined up with the elasticated waist on the maxi skirt!

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Kisschasy band tee, chambray maxi skirt, gold Havaianas, plum Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote.

Other ways to wearKisschasy band tee and leopard print jeans, chambray maxi skirt and stripes, plum Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote and denim shorts.

Tee: Kisschasy The Final Roar band tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Another day, another Kisschasy band tee. This was actually the first graphic tee I got out of my wardrobe to wear after being inspired by Sheila's graphic tee outfit. I have only worn this tee a few times, as I got it when I went to the final Brisbane show before Kisschasy disbanded.

While this tee does look great with jeans (and I've worn in that way in the past) for something different I went with a trusty wardrobe staple, a maxi skirt. I wanted to be comfortable for a trip down the coast to spend some time with my parents, and this was the perfect outfit for that.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer (above), Kisschasy Final Roar concert tee, stripe maxi skirt, gold Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB Tote bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

You don't need to leave all your old concert or band tees to gather dust in your wardrobe! Try pairing them with a maxi skirt for a different look. This works well with any graphic tee you'd usually just pair with jeans, but is just as easy and comfortable to wear.

  4. Really nice graphic tee especially the first one, I like how you styled it with light blue maxi skirt.

  5. Oh I love the combo of the graphic tee with a maxi skirt! It adds such a fun, casual vibe. I've never heard of that band, what kind of music do they play?

  6. I really enjoyed your big comment from yesterday, Mica, thank you! I like the idea of you doing a denim-free break - I think it will be a good challenge for you!

    I love that denim skirt in the first outfit! It's just lovely. Never heard of Kisschasy - must check them out. Congrats on your eBook! So exciting!

  7. I love both looks. Those skirts look so versatile they could be paired with any top and I liked that you paired them with band tees. I will do this style trick with my midi skirts soon! The cute furry friend of yours is just lovely isn't he/she? Hope to see your Autumn looks! :D xx

  8. Graphic tee and maxi skirt is a combo that I never thought would go together but you look great in the combo! I'll definitely give it a try so thank you for the inspiration!

  9. I love band tees! I have a Rolling Stones & Duran Duran tee. I wear them all the time. Love yours Mica!

  13. That first light blue maxi is so pretty and it looks great on you...both outfits are very stylish, but the first one is my fav.

  14. I love how graphic tees make anything casual. These two graphic tees are fabulous and I love how they look with maxi skirts!

  15. You're actually making me wonder where my concert/bands tee shirts went ?!?!

  16. You are the queen of maxi skirts, Mica! You pull them off so well and I love how you styled this band tee with them! Thanks for linking up with us!!!

    Trendy & Tidy

  17. I still wear a band tee from the very early 2000's. I am forever grateful my mom purchased it huge for me back then. (; I think they hold the dearest memories. Even if those memories are hospital related, yikes! It means they will forever hold a story and remind you of things that have come and gone. (:
