#30Wears: Ways to Wear Rebecca Minkoff Yellow Micro Regan Bag in Harvest Gold

Another month, another #30wears post showing 30 different ways to wear something. This month I've picked a bag again, my Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan cross body bag.

Even after not shopping for 7 months, I'm finding it harder than I thought to hit 30 wears on my clothes. I think if I had a capsule wardrobe it would be easier, but I have a pretty large wardrobe and so I'm not frequently rewearing things as much as I think!

#30Wears: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Cross Body Bag in Harvest Gold

I bought this cute little mustard yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag back in October last year. Since I sold my yellow Rebecca Minkoff swing bag, I'd been looking for a replacement, and this was in the Shopbop sale. I like the rectangular shape of it, just a little roomier than my Rebecca Minkoff mini MACs and I love the extra tassel details.

The colour is harvest gold, which is a beautiful mustard yellow. It's from the fall/winter collection, and although October is spring here in Australia it didn't put me off of buying. I like colourful bags, no matter what season they are from I tend to wear them year round. You can see that in the photos below.

Micro Regan and Shorts and Kimonos

Proving my point above right away, this mustard yellow cross body bag works perfectly in summer. I wear the outfit formula of kimono and denim shorts a LOT in the warmer months, and this bag looks great with the denim. I love to wear it with the grey floral Somedays Lovin' kimono as you can see, as the kimono has a little yellow in the print. It does work nicely with my other kimonos too though. A plain, unpatterned bag is a good accessory with a busy printed outfit.

Micro Regan and Maxi Dresses

The Rebecca Minkoff micro regan doesn't just look good with denim, I like to wear it with my maxi dresses too. It's a simple boxy shape so it's quick and easy to throw on. It's fun to use it for a pop of colour with a grey maxi dress, or try new colour combinations with yellow and coral and pink dresses.

Micro Regan and Maxi Skirts

I wear my maxi skirts a lot so it makes sense I'd wear my Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with them often too. Just like with the maxi dresses above, I like adding extra colour to an already colourful outfit with combinations like orange and yellow and red, blue and yellow. A neutral maxi skirt outfit can be made more interesting with a little touch of colour from the bag too. It's not as in-your-face as a lighter yellow, the mustard colour makes it so wearable with many different things. And I've always liked yellow and grey together, so it's an easy accessory choice with a grey outfit.

Mustard Yellow Bag and Monochrome Outfits

Blue and yellow is another colour combination I like - and you can see that beautifully in the monochrome outfits below. I like this set of photos as it shows how well the micro Regan bag works in multiple different outfits. While they are all monochrome outfits, it involves dresses, denim shorts and a maxi skirt. And it looks so good with all 4!

Matching Yellow Bag and Accessories

If I'm feeling a little matchy-matchy, I like to wear my yellow teething necklace with the mustard micro Regan bag. While they are both different shades of yellow, I like how they look together.  Yellow can be seen by some people as hard to wear, so trying yellow accessories first is a great way to experiment with new colour combinations and add just a hint of colour to your outfit. You might be surprised by how many things yellow goes with once you give it a try.

Yellow Bag and Yellow Clothes

While I love the yellow necklace and bag outfit formula above, I like to match my mustard yellow bag to my yellow clothes too. You don't need to keep colour in your accessories, you can wear a bag that matches other pieces in your outfit. Again, the cardigan below doesn't match the bag exactly, but I think the slightly different shades look good together.

Mustard Yellow Bag in Any Season

As I mentioned previously, you can wear the mustard yellow micro Regan bag year-round. Mustard might be seen as a fall and winter colour, but there's nothing stopping you from wearing it in spring and summer.  It's a lovely all-rounder and I'm so glad I bought it!

  2. I love love love this bag! The Harvest Gold is actually quite a versatile colour - it looks fab with all of the outfits. I'd love to know what you think of the size of the bag as a mummy bag - as much as I love my totes I'm looking at smaller options too!

  10. I love the color yellow but am definitely wary of wearing it myself. I love your combination of the yellow RM bag and yellow jewelry--so pretty!

  11. Seeing how many times you've worn this bag, it does affirm that paying more for a good quality item will pay off in your cost-per-wear! Nicely done - and I love how this mustard yellow goes with so much!

  12. It really is a fantastic bag! I've wanted a Regan for a while. I recently got a new denim Love cross body though! And a nubuck Mini Mac! I wasn't sure how much mustard yellow would go with, but it does!

  13. 30 wears is very impressive. I also have a large wardrobe, rather than a smaller wardrobe of classic pieces so know how much of a challenge I would find that. This proves just how versatile mustard yellow can be. It’s a colour I’m always saying I want to have more of but it’s not so easy to find. It’s the perfect match with your yellow necklace.

  14. It's a gorgeous bag Mica! I really love it with your navy & yellow outfits.

  15. Love that you have gotten so much wear out of a bag that I would consider such a unique color!

  16. That looks like such a fun bag--I love how it adds bright color no matter what you pair it with. It's especially fun against the monochrome looks. You always make me want to have more bags and change them out--I carry the same one every day!

  17. I like it especially with the denim monochrome outfits, but myself find yellow a color that is hard to wear. It suits you though, as the pictures with the yellow cardigan show.

  18. I have a gold/yellow clutch I don't pull out often because I don't know what to pair it with. I love all this inspiration! It adds such a nice pop of color to your outfits!

  19. I love the way you've styled this with so many different options for outfits and styles. It looks like a truly versitile bag! Great accessories, too!

  23. I would have never thought of mustard as a staple color but now I am! I mean you paired it with so many colors! Love it! I really like that yellow floral skirt - is it green?

  24. Love the pop of color! Thanks for the inspiration :)
