Green And Blue Office Outfits With Converse and 5-Zip Bag

Two different office outfits, both featuring green and blue with my vintage faded electric blue Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip bag I got for Christmas.

What I wore:

Earrings: DIY green and red marble clay circle earrings
Necklace: thrifted wooden geometric bead necklace
Tee: black textured crew neck tee
Skirt: Kmart breeze green broderie anglaise midi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
Bagvintage original Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip in faded electric blue

Why I wore it:

Making this green Kmart broderie anglaise midi skirt work outside of December by pairing it with a simple black textured tee for the office. The red and green earrings were a Christmas set I made but I thought that the black tee and matching black Converse played down the Christmas theme enough. I really like this green skirt and I'm excited to wear it year round to get the most out of this Christmas present.

Green and blue is a combination I've been enjoying more lately, so this electric blue Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag seemed like an obvious choice with this pretty green skirt. The chunky geometric necklace was the obvious choice as it has both blue and green in it too. I really liked this outfit, it was great for a quiet day in the office.

Last worn: black textured teegeometric necklace, green midi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff electric blue 5 zip bag. First time I've worn the earrings as I made them over Christmas.

What I wore:

Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bagvintage original Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip in faded electric blue

Why I wore it:

This is a slightly different way to do green and blue. Again I wore my electric blue 5 zip bag, and this time I wore my blue Converse sneakers. I thought the blue accessories worked well with the teal background of this floral print dress. Not the first time I've worn this teal dress with blues, I really like the combination, so it's something I repeat often.

This is such a good dress for the office. While it's a light viscose the long sleeves and midi length help stop me from feeling too cold in the office aricon.

Navy Dresses And Purple Bags

I like blue and purple together, no matter the shades! I accessorised both of these navy dresses I wore recently with little purple bags in different shades of purple.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted pastel pink and wooden hexagon bead necklace
Earrings: Mimco silver stud earrings (Christmas present)
Dress: Kmart short sleeve tiered knit dress in indigo ink with pockets
Shoes: Kmart tan crossover slides
Bracelets: the usual
BagPolene numero neuf mini in textured mauve 

Why I wore it:

On another day of the summer heatwave I needed something simple to wear and this Kmart navy tiered dress was perfect for the heat. I kept the accessories simple with the blush wooden necklace, tan slides and my lilac Polene bag. I had the school drop off and a few hours of working from home before a couple of quick errands in the afternoon and then school pickup.

I like how simple dresses like this are for a hot day - instant outfits! And I thought the lilac and blush accessories worked well with the navy.

Last worn: navy Kmart tiered dress, blush necklace, tan slides, Polene Numero Neuf mini bag. First time I've worn the earrings as they were a Christmas gift.

What I wore:

Earrings: handmade pink star clay earrings made by my sister
Necklace: Grandmothers vintage silver necklace
DressJaase Celine autumn leaves mini dress
Shoes:  Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagChloe small Paraty bag in wine purple

Why I wore it:

Another purple bag, and another navy dress. This Jaase autumn leaves print dress is one of my favourites and was perfect for a day at my parents. It was still warm despite being a very wet day, so this light viscose long sleeved dress was just right for the weather. I added the Adidas Superstar sneakers to have closed in shoes for the rain and as a practical choice for a quick errand before the drive down the cost to my parents.

With the red autumnal leaves colours in the print of the dress, I wasn't sure this purple Paraty bag would work, as much as I like navy and purple together. But I'm glad I gave it a wear with this dress, I think it worked nicely with the leaf print.

Last worn: pink star earrings, Jaase autumn leaves dress, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Chloe purple Paraty bag. First time I've worn the necklace.

Other ways to wearJaase autumn leaves dress and denim jacket, Adidas Superstar sneakers and denim, Chloe purple Paraty and jeans.
