Pink and Purple: Jeans and Floral Kimono Outfits | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, two more skinny jeans and kimono outfits. Taking advantage of the winter weather in Brisbane reverting to more seasonably expected warmer temps back in June to go partially bare-armed. Both these outfits have floral kimonos, purple, and my little prune Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag.

What I wore:

Jacket: Target Karolina summer kimono in purple black floral
Necklace: thrifted purple wooden bead statement necklace
Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff prune MAC with pom pom and tassel keychain

Why I wore it:

I loved this outfit! I wasn't sure about the black space dye peplum tee with the grey skinny jeans and black Converse - it was a lot of neutrals! But even though the dark floral kimono has a black background I think the purple floral print added the perfect amount of colour to this outfit. Especially with the lilac necklace and the prune Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag.

With the neutral tonal black/grey column underneath I think the different shades of purple and magenta and lilac with the kimono and accessories worked really nicely in this outfit. Perfect for the school run, working from home, and sports for the kids in the evening.

Last worn: purple floral kimono, lilac necklace, space dye peplum tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff prune MAC.

Jeans: Jeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff prune MAC with pom pom and tassel keychain

Why I wore it:

I realised I hadn't worn these purple skinny jeans in a while and that they were definitely overdue another wear! Surprisingly I hadn't yet worn them with the tropical floral print duster. I liked wearing my lilac tee with this duster so it's strange it's taken me so long to put the jeans together with them!

With all the colours in the floral print, the magenta Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag and the purple jeans, I kept it simple with just a plain grey tee. I considered a scarf with this as it was a bit of a windy day, but it was warm and sunny so I went with a necklace instead. I liked this easy outfit!

Last worn: tropical floral print kimono, wooden bead necklace, grey tee, purple skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff prune MAC (above).

How You Can Wear It:

A floral print kimono is a great topper with jeans and a tee - and you can add even more colour to your outfit with a bright accessory like this prune MAC bag.

30 Ways To Wear: Slouchy Tan Knee High Boots - ASOS Cleo Leather Boots

It's been quite a while since I last did a 30 ways to wear post with footwear, so another was overdue. This month I'm sharing 30 of my favourite ways I've worn these awesome slouchy tan leather knee high boots.

30 Ways To Wear: Slouchy Tan Knee High Boots

Cost Per Wear

I wish I could calculate the cost per wear with these boots! I know I purchased them in an ASOS sale back in 2012, that's when they first shows up on the blog. I can't find the ASOS order email letting me know how much they cost though which is a shame. They are a pair of boots I've worn in the colder months each year since I got them so I definitely feel I've gotten my money's worth from them! Even though I don't remember what I paid to calculate cost per wear. They have been worn over 47 times and as they are leather they hold up year after year!

Being petite I can never pull off over the knee boots, but these knee high ones are perfect as with a bit of slouch to them I can adjust them. Thick socks or leggings or jeans underneath help them stay in place if I want a less slouchy look and more hight. They work well in so many outfits! Here are just 30 of my favourites.

Tan Knee High Boots With Bare Legs And Dresses

Definitely my favourite way to wear these boots - although not my most frequently worn outfit combination with them. There are so few days a year where you can get away with bare legs and boots before it gets too cold, but it's such a nice combination I try to wear it when I can!

Knee High Boots Under Maxi Skirts and Dresses

Knee high boots under a maxi skirt (or dress like in the middle outfit) definitely doesn't make the most of how cute the boots look, as they are hidden under the skirt! It's such a good way to make a summer maxi skirt work into colder weather though as the knee high leather helps keep your legs warm underneath the skirt!

Skinny Jeans Tucked Into Tan Knee High Boots

Jeans tucked into boots might be the most common way I've worn these knee high boots! Skinny jeans work best as they stay in place all day without riding up. It's a good way to make these boots a bit taller and less slouchy too, as the thick denim helps keep them pulled right up to my knees.

Knee High Boots With Dresses In Winter

I do like trying to winterise my summer dresses - adding layers with jackets scarves, and of course leggings or tights! I like the contrast of black tights and leggings with the tan leather.

Tan Knee High Boots With Red Outfits

One colour combination you might have noticed a lot with these boots is red! I really like the neutral tan shade against red pieces in an outfit, as you can see in each of these 3 pics with the red tee, dress and jacket and scarf.

Tan Knee High Boots With Other Shades of Brown

I do like a bit of matchy-matchy - but I don't have anything else that matches this tan shade exactly. I think that other brown shades, from the lighter beige of the trench to the darker chocolate of that tee in the middle, work nicely with the neutral tan. I really like wearing other brown pies in my wardrobe with these boots, even if they aren't the same shade.

Tan Knee High Boots With Burgundy Outfits

As much as I like red with these tan boots, I really lover burgundy even more! Even if it's just a small hint of burgundy like a scarf, or something larger like the jeans or dress, burgundy looks great paired with tan.
