Maxi Dresses, Denim Jacket and Silver Mini MAC

Father's day weekend celebrations at the start of September meant the chance to dress up a little with my favourite maxi dresses. Maxi dress and denim jacket is a frequently worn outfit combo for both spring and autumn for me.

What I wore:

DressGypsy 05 orange ombre maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wore this for to celebrate Father's day with the family and then the in-laws in the afternoon. I got lucky and even though we ate out for lunch we had takeaway for dinner. It was nice not to have to cook anything other than breakfast all day!

This dress is so beautiful, always gets a lot of love when I wear it. Pleased to have it in my wardrobe after my bestie tired of it and gave it to me. I liked how well the feather pendant matched the peach of the dress, and the silver mini MAC bag was a good neutral too.

I wore silver ballet flats with this too but they are a little tricky to see as the breeze kept catching the hem of the dress.

Last worn: denim jacket, ombre Gypsy 05 maxi dress, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I wore this the day before as we had an early Father's Day brunch with my dad and family. We ended up sitting outside at the restaurant and it was such lovely weather I really didn't need my denim jacket on. A good start to spring.

You'll probably already know that this maxi dress is my favourite given how much I wear it! One of those treasured maternity pieces that works perfectly for breastfeeding too and so pretty that I continue to wear it even though those days are behind me. Nothing new here with this wearing! It's been worn many times with this denim jacket, and the colourful Louis Vuitton bandeau scarf as a belt is a favourite go-to outfit combination.

Just like the outfit above I wore the metallic silver mini MAC bag with this, silver was a good neutral with the colourful dress.

The good thing about maxi dresses is that they work for so many occasions - later that afternoon we had to go grocery shopping, no need to change into a different outfit!

How You Can Wear It:

Maxi dresses are perfect for summer, but it's so easy to wear them on a warm spring or autumn day by simply adding a denim jacket. A denim jacket is a classic outfit topper which looks good with all styles of dresses, definitely a must have piece for spring.

  1. Happy Friday Mica! What a beautiful gift! I really adore the color of both dresses and they fit you beautifully. ..your choice of accessories was perfect as always! The metallic bag is so cute! The challenge for me has being finding one that compliment my petite frame. ..with slight alterations I think I finally found one. Pray you have a wonderful weekend!


  2. Even though it is not a color I think would suit me I really like the first dress. Beautiful!

  3. I love the maxis, and it seems so perfect to wear the denim jacket over them both!!
    Fabulous outfits, Mica!
    And have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Sounds like you had a lovely Father's Day! :) And that first dress really is beautiful, I can see why you get so many compliments on it, it's gorgeous! I like how you styled it with the rest of the outfit. :) And I too love whenever I don't have to cook all day!! Nothing like a nice take-away dinner. :D Thanks for sharing, lovely. xoxo


  5. What a beautiful bag! I love Rebecca Minkoff, her designs are awesome, yet I still haven't made a purchase! I have too and I love this style, I think I'd most likely get it in black, though I love this metallic silver as well, it looks great with both outfits. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend!



  6. I hate how good you look in maxi dresses! I just can't look good in them. They look awesome with the denim

  7. The metallic mini MAC is so cute! I never thought a metallic bag could be so versatile/ worn like a neutral. Hope you enjoyed your Father's Day :)

  8. I can see why your orange dress gets so many compliments! It's such a great piece and your necklace really does look amazing with it! I love your purple dress, too. It works so well post-maternity. I am hoping to be able to repurpose a few of my items post-maternity as well because I think they will be great belted or as a tunic! Some things are just to cute to sit unworn just because they are maternity!

  9. I love maxi dress but struggles with the length because I'm too lazy to alter it but gosh, you look gorgeous with both. Love the addition of a denim jacket too!

  10. That ombre maxi dress is so pretty! I love how the denim jacket gives it a fun, casual vibe too. Yay for taking a break from cooking at home! I do love to cook but it's nice to not have to do it sometimes!

  11. What a great set of outfits. I really adore the first one and I had forgotten Father's Day celebrations are in September. The pastel sherbet colour is so pretty. Your hair looks great here as well. <3 Take care, dear. Madison

  12. I read "Father's Day" and for a hot second I thought Father's Day was coming up, but it passed a long time ago in June, haha. Love the first dress though, I can see why you get lots of compliments! I feel like you can play around with colors and be a beautiful walking sunset!

  13. I love how dressy both outfits are! The ombre effect of the first dress is just so pretty! I love the peach color too. I would be so irritated if my hem kept getting caught! I just got a new kimono that has large sleeves and I keep getting stuck on door handles lol. I have to be careful that I don't end up ripping it up!

  14. The peach dress is my favourite - the colour is so pretty on you, Mica! Great outfits and you make it look so easy to be put-together in an every-day way! Brava!

  15. Dear Mica,
    I see you celebrated Father's day in the best possible and most beautiful way! It is always a pleasure not to cook :)
    Love both of your dresses so much - you look adorable and I'm not surprised the second gown belongs to your favourites as this dress definitely is perfect!

  16. That first dress is so lovely on you! I don't remember seeing it. The silver bag and flats were the perfect choice. I always think you look pretty in a maxi!

  17. I love a good denim jacket and teamed with maxi dresses is such a good idea!! Although you probably won't be needing the jacket for too much longer here with this dang heatwave! Love your styles here Mica!

  18. you look absolutely pretty in all of the outfits :)

  19. I wish I looked as good in a maxi dress as you do. They both look lovely but the colour of the second one is just stunning! I love how it's paired with the denim jacket and the silver bag - spot on!

  20. Denim jackets always look great with dresses. I always love the look.

  21. I love the denim jacket. It went really well with the dresses you wore. I absolutely love the purse. I’m a purse girl so that purse fits right in with my style.

  22. I love your maxi dresses! Never realized that it could transform into a fall outfit with a denim jacket, but you are so right! Great idea!

  23. Aren't you looking beautiful Mica ! great choices. That first dress is fabulous, I have a similar one and had not thought about pairing it with a jean jacket.

  24. I need a jean jacket! Love the spring peach color!

  25. Love the inspiration...I have a denim jacket I almost never use...I should whip it out this weekend

  26. I thought it was like a champagne gold! Gorgeous colour! Love the orange dress too, Mica!
