Midi Skirts and Tank Tops With Love Too Bag

I've worn these midi skirts to the office a few times, but decided to wear them with simple tanks for working from home days recently.


What I wore:




Necklace: thrifted chartreuse necklace
Tank: Kmart navy ribbed tank
Skirt: thrifted &Me blue linen button up midi skirt with pockets
Shoes: Kmart tan crossover slides
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

I really liked all of the blues in this outfit, with the deep teal Rebecca Minkoff Love bag always photographing so navy, and the light blue linen skirt and the navy ribbed tank. I felt like I needed a little extra colour with this when I put it all together though, the thrifted chartreuse necklace was the perfect pop of colour. With it and the tan slides I didn't feel like this outfit was too monochromatic. I really liked it!

Was nice and comfortable for the school run, working from home and having a tradie over at the house in the middle of the day. While the morning was a little chilly it was nice to have bare arms and legs for a bit, it's a lot cooler in Brisbane now than it was when I wore this!


Last worn: navy tank, chartreuse necklace, linen midi skirt, tan slides, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag.

What I wore:




Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: thrifted flat navy statement bead necklace
Tank: Jeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver
Skirt: Kmart breeze green broderie anglaise midi skirt
Shoesthrifted white leather Chuck Taylor All Star Converse sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

I'd planned this outfit in advance, after liking the one above so much! Again it was a plain tank (this silver one I've had for a while and I'm nearly at 30 wears with) and this pretty green broderie anglaise midi skirt. I didn't like this outfit so much last time I wore this skirt, when I wore it with a printed tank, so I knew the simple block colour tank would be something I'd enjoy better.

I added the navy necklace to compliment the deep blue undertone in the Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag, and Converse are always a practical and comfortable choice. The weather wasn't quite as expected though, it was a lot more autumn like than the day I wore the first outfit, so while it was okay working from home, I ended up adding a denim jacket over this when I was out for the school run and a couple of errands before school pick up and sports in the evening.


Last worn: denim jacket, navy flat bead necklace, silver tank, green broderie midi skirt, white Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag (above).

Metallic Gold Tee Worn 2 Ways

I bought this gold linen tee at the outlets recently - I couldn't pass by how shiny it was, and for just $10! I'm finding it a little tricker to style than I first thought. I figured with metallic being a neutral it would work with everything, but so far I've just worn it with pink and blue.


What I wore:




Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: Just Jeans Jamie shirt tail v neck tee in coated champagne gold (new purchase)
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga First bag in 2006 Blue India


Why I wore it:

Thought I'd pair this tee with my pink polka dot pencil skirt for its first wear. I like tees and pencil skirts for office wear, it works in my casual office. I felt the metallic tee and the pale pastel pink polka dot pencil skirt seemed a little washed out, even with the black Converse, so I added some brighter turquoise accessories.

The matchy-matchy of the turquoise Balenciaga first bag and the turquoise and gold tassel necklace made me smile. I always love a bit of matchy-matchy!


Last worn: turquoise tassel necklace, pink polka dot pencil skirt, black Converse, Balenciaga Blue India first bag. First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearpink polka dot pencil skirt and blazer, black Converse and jeans, Balenciaga Blue India first bag and maxi skirt.

Jacket: thrifted Jeanswest cobalt blue blazer (new purchase)
Necklace: thrifted pastel pink and wooden hexagon bead necklace
Tee: Just Jeans Jamie shirt tail v neck tee in coated champagne gold
Jeans: thrifted Zara pink frayed hem skinny jeans
Shoes: thrifted white leather Chuck Taylor All Star Converse sneakers (new purchase)
Bracelets: the usual 
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

Another trip into the office for this metallic gold tee! This time, while I wore it again with pink, I covered it up a bit more with the blazer. Both the pink jeans and the cobalt blue blazer are recent opshop finds, as are the white leather Converse. I added a little more pink with the neutral wood and blush necklace, but I think a bolder necklace would have worked better here, it got lost in the tee a bit.

The pink jeans and cobalt blue blazer certainly added enough colour to make up for the lack of brightness in the necklace though, and I really liked this outfit! While the deep teal Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag doesn't match any of the other colours in my outfit, I've been wearing this bag a lot recent and think that - just like it does in this outfit - it goes with so much.


Last worn: blush necklace, gold tee (above), pink frayed hem jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag. First time I've worn the blazer and Converse on the blog as they are recent opshop finds.
