Maxi Skirts and Graphic Tees with Aqua Mini MAC Bag

I like wearing graphic tees and maxi skirts together. It's an outfit combination I've always enjoyed wearing, even when pregnant. It's easy stay at home mum style.

I was taking part in the #SpringFlingStyle challenge on Instagram, and was hunting through the hashtag to see what others were wearing when I stumbled across someone with a cute jumper with little graphic details down the sleeves. While I don't have anything similar, it was seeing this that made me realise I hadn't worn my graphic tees in a while, and I picked out two of my favourites to wear.

What I wore:

Necklace: Nibbly Bits BB plum silicone teething necklace (C/O)
Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This was the first outfit that came to mind when I decided to get some of my graphic tees out after being inspired by @teepeestyle. I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn this tee and skirt together before! I think the navy graphic tee works so well with the navy stripes in the maxi skirt.

The style challenge for the day was 'A for...' so of course I went with accessories, picking my aqua mini MAC bag which was due another wear.

This maxi skirt hasn't been worn for a while. I do try wear my maxi skirts year round, but this one with a split up the side isn't the best in winter. On this cool spring day it was just perfect though. Great for running errands with the toddlers.

Last worn: navy moon tee, stripe maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Other ways to wearnavy moon tee and purple skinny jeans, stripe maxi skirt postpartum, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC and printed shorts.

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'C for...' and I was initially stumped. I decided to go with colourful accessories and a striped maxi skirt, then at the last moment changed my mind and picked this chambray maxi skirt instead of the other one I had planned. I actually ended up loving this outfit more than the one I'd planned the night before, I really like this graphic tee and maxi skirt together. Plus the chambray and Converse met the style challenge prompt for the day perfectly.

Nice easy outfit to work from home and do the daycare drop off and pick up. I liked this so much I continued to wear it even after an entire glass of water was spilled on the hem of my skirt - luckily chambray dries out quickly!

Last worn: Oscar's Law tee, chambray maxi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Graphic tees look great with jeans and shorts, but you don't have to stick to pairing them with denim. They look just as good with maxi skirts.
