Navy Stripe Maxi Skirts and Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag

If you follow on instagram you'll know baby boy's in hospital. I still have pre-scheduled blog posts like this that will continue to be published, and he's just in as a precaution. We hope to be home for Christmas!

I love maxi skirts year round and while I wear them in winter, they definitely get worn the most over the warmer months. I've got quite a collection of maxi skirts now, the majority of them are striped! I like the easy go-to outfit of a tee and a maxi skirt. Perfect for breastfeeding too.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | away from the blue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
SkirtTarget navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Navy and purple are so nice together. It's a combination I've worn a lot. When I got this skirt I knew right away I would wear it with this purple tee. Added the purple bag for a little more colour. Even though the purple shades don't match I really like the way it looks with the outfit. I was so happy with this, colourful and comfortable and perfect for our "viewing session" to review all of the photographs taken at the photoshoot I won a while back. There were so many great photos it was hard to narrow it down to what we wanted to buy!

Last worn: purple tee, navy stripe maxi skirt, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in blue and on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

This was another style challenge outfit. The theme was 'matchy matchy' so I went with the navy tee to match the navy stripes in my maxi skirt. Again I wore the purple mini MAB tote bag as purple is so nice with navy! I wore this tee with purple last time I wore it too.

Just wanted something simple and easy for baby boy's weekly weigh appointment, this was perfect.

Last worn: navy tee, white maxi skirt, Havaianas, purple mini MAB tote bag (above).

  1. Ooh no. I hope baby is doing ok now. Sending you so much love right now.


  2. Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear about your baby boy being in the hospital...I hope he will out as soon as possible. My husband had to receive a few IV last week because of a bad virus and infection but he refused to be hospitalized...stubborn man, now he is running around with fever. Sometimes it is better to spend a few days in the hospital and recover fully. Some things can be rushed.

    You look so lovely...both of these stripes skirts are adorable.

    1. Hope your husband is doing much better now!

  3. Stay encouraged! Praying for your son! I really love the grape bag against the stripes! Beautiful!


  4. Cute outfit! Love the maxi skirt - you can wear them any time of year! And that purse is a gorgeous color :)

  7. Oh, honey, I hope your baby boy will be okay - sending you good vibes all the way across the Pacific!!

    I love your maxi-matching with blues and purples - such a nice combination. Don't know if you saw my answer to your question about maxis dragging in winter - I hold a big bunch of the skirt in my hand to walk and keep the skirt from the wet sidewalks.
