Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC With Skinny Jeans, Kimonos and Bright Tanks

I've been wearing my kimonos with jeans a lot lately. Kimonos and denim is a go-to outfit for me over summer, and I wanted to embrace winter with my jeans but still enjoy my kimonos for a little longer. I wore them with bright tanks because even though it's winter here in Brisbane it's still fun to add some colour to your outfit.

What I wore:

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Florals aren't just for spring! Wearing them to welcome the first day of winter with this cosy kimono. The navy kimono and mustard tank aren't a new combination, I wore it before here in summer, but it's a combination I love so much I was eager to wear again! This time with jeans instead of shorts, as it is still winter.

Had a busy day, with daycare drop off and pick up, working from home and baby boy's specialist appointment in the afternoon, so I wanted something easy and comfortable. By picking classic black jeans that go with everything and a top and kimono I've worn together before, I knew this outfit would work. Anything that makes getting dressed in the morning quicker and easier is good as a mum!

It was a chilly morning, but the warmer cotton of this kimono and the cocoon style enveloping my arms made this perfect for tackling the chill.

Why I wore it:

Unlike the kimono above, this kimono wasn't as cosy. I did regret it a little in the morning as we had an early start, with some errands before our ABA mother's group, and it took awhile for the weather to warm up. I wore this in the first week of winter though, when I wasn't quite ready to retire my kimonos for the season!

The ankle boots were an effort to make me feel warmer, but really they just annoyed me. I forgot that the zips on the hems of these Jeanswest skinny jeans make them difficult to wear with ankle boots, they just aren't a comfortable combo.

Despite these minor annoyances, I did like this outfit. I love blue and pink together, and this was a fun way to wear the combination, even if this kimono will be set aside to wait for warmer weather!

How You Can Wear It:

Black jeans go with everything and are a great wardrobe staple and alternative to the traditional blue. Wearing a pair of neutral black jeans lets you be a little more colourful with the rest of your outfit too. A printed kimono adds more interest to your outfit, making a bold but easy to wear colour combination when paired with a bright tank.

  1. You look fab in both of these outfits, Mica! Those black skinny jeans really do go with everything and I agree they are a great alternative to blue jeans. I love the blue and pink combo in the second outfit :) XXX

  2. I too am all about the kimono's lately! It's been super hot here in the UK (I am sure it's nothing compared to the Australian summer, but for us, even 23 degrees is too much, haha!), and I find that kimonos are perfect for this kind of weather. They are super versatile, in general! I love both outfits, the first one especially is super lovely and I like how you combined the colours. <3 Thanks for sharing, lovely! xoxo

  3. I love how you wore florals and colourful combos, Mica:) I think they should be worn year-round and not just for the warm months. And so hear yah about the ankle boots-and-zippered jeans....I've worn something like that before and they are uncomfortable! You do look great in them though:)

    1. Yes, I only wish the combination felt as good as it looked ha! Such an annoying placement of boots and zipper!

  4. It's funny how an outfit can look great in the photos, but there's some details that make it hard or annoying to wear!!
    But I always love that you enjoy bright colors, Mica!!

  5. Oh I love how you pair these pretty kimonos with complementary bright camis! And sorry about the jeans/ankle boots not working as well as you hoped. That happens to me with certain pants...the ankle part just doesn't "go" with the shoe as easily as Pinterest makes me think it should!

  10. I see your kimonos are also perfect for the winter! But I see also that your winters aren't as cold as our winters in Bavaria because such outfits like you show here today are much too cold for the in Bavaria usual winter temperatures :) I'm not surprised you have been happy with the first look and despite the minor disadvantages I see you have been also quite happy with the second beautiful look!

  12. I have a special place in my heart for skinny jeans haha, I swear I've been wearing them on-and-off for about a decade now! There's no going wrong with a well-fitting black pair and you've styled this pair wonderfully :) Hope you're having a wonderful week so far...

  14. I guess it is always the same at the start of a new season: You have to relearn all the little things you previously forgot, like the zipper don't pair with ankle boots issue.

    And I know what you mean about that second outfit. Sometimes just the tiniest things about an outfit can bug you. So even if it's super cute you're like 'GAHHHH!!!' I have some jeans with zipped hems and I always think I can wear boots with them and then I remember, NOOOOPE

  18. Hi Mica
    You and I have the same problem, I can't resist a Kimono, today I also have a look with a kimono. I also like the floral pattern even in winter like you. The looks are much more interesting than with a cardigan.
    I like both looks equally.
    I had a busy week with other works that I do, from tomorrow I will have more time to comment on other blogs, I hope you have a good week ahead.

  26. The first kimono does look more comfortable. I do like wearing kimonos on lazy days because I can just put on a simple top and then pair it with a printed kimono and I'm good to go. :D

  34. You are the total dream babe of kimonos, rocking both of these oh so beautifully stylish queen! I love how you've styled both these outfits, the necklaces are so divine and work so well with the pretty prints of the kimonos. The blue and pink of the second outfit looks divine on you while the pop of yellow from the first look is super cute. Deffo loving denim and kimonos together too, such a matchmake in heaven. Heart eyed for your gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff bag too, the aquamarine hue is truly stunning <3

  36. Love the yellow outfit! This is kinda random, but I was looking for a smaller water bottle to fit in my handbags last night and I didn't want to get a plain bottle so I went for the brightest one which was yellow with a floral print all over it and your outfit reminded me of it (in a good way!) and I love it so much. The floral cardi you chose goes so perfectly with the yellow top. Makes me want to add more yellow to my wardrobe!

  37. I am envious that you can wear a kimono for winter, why can't Canadian winter be the same? LOL! It's always a learning curve whenever the season change, I still struggle to dress appropriately for the season.

  39. Ooh I love these color combos Mica! I've gotten into a bit of a rut and have been buying mostly neutrals for layering pieces. This post is reminding me that I could use a few brights to layer under my kimono and cardigans too.
