Maxi Dresses and Printed Kimonos with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

I love maxi dresses and I love kimonos, so it just makes sense to wear them together! I thought that these printed kimonos would be a nice touch with the plain maxi dresses, to add a little more fun to my outfits.

What I wore:

black halterneck jersey maxi dress Havaianas Somedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono | away from the blue

printed kimono, silver bracelet stack, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from blue

JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Feather pendant in peach (C/O)
Dressblack Jeanswest halterneck maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This is one of my most worn kimonos, but it's still not at 30 wears yet, this is only it's 26th wear! I'm hopeful I'll hit 30 wears on it by the end of the year, so you'll probably see it being worn a lot more often, just like I did with my purple cardigan when I was so close to 30 wears with it. Nice and comfortable outfit for a busy morning, taking Baby Boy for his weigh in session and getting my tax done and picking up groceries.

The only downside to this outfit was that it was a very windy day. I had so many issues trying to get a good photo, as the kimono kept getting caught in the wind!


Last worn: Somedays Lovin' kimono, black maxi dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Other ways to wearSomedays Lovin' kimono and denim shorts, black maxi dress and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC and pencil skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: printed kimono and maternity tankmaxi dress in third trimester, mini MAC in third trimester.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

I grabbed this maxi dress, my favourite, out of my wardrobe to try break a bit of an outfit slump I was in after our Sydney trip. It always makes me feel good when I wear it.

In an effort to try change this up a little, I decided to try belting a kimono over it. I've belted things over it in pregnancy before so I figured I'd try the look without the bump. While I liked this in the mirror, I think it looks a little off in the photo as the belt slipped down. Was a nice and colourful, comfortable outfit for playgroup though. I really liked the colours with the pink dress, purple bag and blue kimono together.

Last worn: navy printed kimono, gold glitter belt, pink maternity maxi dress, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote bag.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono and shorts, gold glitter belt and little black dress, pink maxi dress for a first birthday party, studded sandals and black shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote bag and leopard print jeans.

Perfect for pregnancy: belted dress in second trimester, pink maxi dress at 39 weeks, studded sandals and maternity shorts, mini MAB tote in third trimester.

How You Can Wear It:

A printed kimono is a great layer with a plain maxi dress. It's perfect for spring or autumn, as kimonos are so lightweight. It's a nice way to add some extra colour or print to your outfit, and you can belt it to try something a little different too.

  4. Hi Mica!!
    I agree with you on the fact that kimonos are the best thing in the world! I find them always being super versatile pieces which can be paired in both more formal or informal attires. I really liked your outfit and the maxi dress idea!

    By the way, thanks for the comment in my blog :)

  11. You always styled your kimonos so well, and I like the idea of belting it! I can see why you are so close to 30 wears on the first one. The colors on it go so well with so many things.

  23. Everyone is wearing Kimono inspired pieces lately.
    I go to Japan a lot and I love to wear the real thing to a lot of events.
    I love the peak of a little dog I see in some of your photos. And the purples you are wearing really suit you.

  25. No wonderful you love kimonos and maxi dresses, dear Mica, as they both suit you so well and as usual I really like both of the combinations! It is not easy to see that the belt in the second outfit slipped down - I think you are really strict to you :)

  29. Hi Mica! You look adorable as always! Both outfits look beautiful on you. The kimono suits you perfectly and I love the romantic print. I adore the bold pink dress too, and the way you've combined different brights colours to make a big impact. Vibrant colours definitely lift my mood, and you look absolutely stunning in these looks.

    Lots of love Saba xx

  34. I just love that mini Mac bag. It is such a gorgeous shade. I've always had a deep respect for kimonos but never really attempted to incorporate them into my own wardrobe. I have to admit lately I've been obsessing over them, mostly the maxi kind but I have to say I love the shorter "cropped" length. There's a bright pink one from Witchery I'd been eying. I think I am going to take the plunge later this week (hopefully with some black friday incentives hahahaha!)
