Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag & Tulip Hem Wrap Dresses For The Office

You can't beat a classic wrap dress for easy office style. I love printed dresses as they are instant outfits, with little to no accessorising required. Both of these Atmos&Here dresses have tulip hems. The tulip hem and midi length is something I'd usually worry would make my petite self look even shorter, but I don't feel that with these dresses. I love them both, even when worn with flats.

What I wore:

NailsOPI Purple With A Purpose

Why I wore it:

Although I lay my outfit out the night before to make getting ready in the morning faster, I don't always know what accessories I'm going to wear. I was standing in front of the mirror trying to pick a necklace when I saw this turquoise and gold beaded one and realised it would be perfect, and meet the 'matchy matchy' theme for the #AutumnStyleFile challenge on Instagram. Only I got my days mixed up and the challenge for the day was actually 'colour makes me happy'. This dress was still perfect for that theme though with the colourful turquoise print.

With the turquoise dress I thought the navy blue Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag would be a good accessory, and it's such a nice bag for the office with the structured sides.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

This was my 'I don't know what to wear' outfit solution. The beautiful zig zag print wrap dress always gets compliments. It's the perfect dress to wear as it goes with any colour of accessories, although again I went with the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

There was no style challenge this day to help me pick out what necklace to wear like there was with the first outfit, so I went with this pretty gold beaded necklace that my bestie gave me, I thought it tied in nicely with the gold mouse flats.

Whenever I wear these mouse flats they always get a reaction when someone spots them - usually causing a debate over what animal they are meant to be. They are Marc Jacobs mouse flats, the animal is in the name, but someone suggested they look more like wombats. I'm tempted to call them my golden wombat shoes now next time anyone asks about them! 😂

How You Can Wear It:


A wrap dress is one of those classic wardrobe 'must-have pieces' I completely agree with and think everyone needs in their wardrobe. They work in pregnancy, although you may need to size up to continue to cover an expanding bump. The turquoise printed wrap dress above is a size larger than normal and I wore it through my third trimester. The wrap style is perfect for breastfeeding post-baby too, flattering on any leftover baby bump and something you know will fit even with all the postpartum body changes! And of course, they work in an office setting. A great all-rounder!

  3. Both dresses look great on you, Mica! I especially like the colours and print of the first dress. The necklace matches perfectly, which I love! I think your mouse flats are so cute and I love that someone suggested they look like wombats! Wombats are one of my fave animals so I think they should definitely be known as golden wombat shoes from now on! Haha ;) XXX

  10. Ha, your 'I don't know what to wear' solution is certainly much more creative and gorgeous than mine ever are! :) I also really like the necklace you've picked out. It's amazing how much of a difference a simple accessory can make. I almost never accessorise my outfits, which is a big mistake as I do think they can make a huge impact. Thanks for sharing, and thank you for the lovely comment on my blog as well, it means a lot. <3 xoxo

  13. Your wombat shoes, that is too funny! I'm not even sure exactly what a wombat looks like, ha! I love both of these dresses and am drooling over that bag. I tend to go for function when it comes to bags and I don't buy a ton of them. But I LOVE that navy one and it's making me think I need a navy bag in my life!

  14. Dear Mica, personally I'm a huge fan of wrapped dresses and therefore I absolutely love both of your looks! You definitely chose both times the perfect necklaces and I'm absolutely convinced I would also start a discussion when I would meet you with those mouse (or wombat) shoes :) Really wonderful looks!

I love that it is neutral enough to go with any accessories, but the wrap fit and zig zag print make it special. Hope you are having a great start to your week!

  41. Hello Mica!
    You really like that wallet ... I also have this problem, what accessories to use? Sometimes I think more is less, but I also like to see acressories complement the looks and this forces me to be more creative. These dresses are a must have of any closet.
    I hope you have a great week and thank you for your words on my blog.

  42. I'm still on the fence whether or not I cant still rock a wrap dress or not. I had a few back after I had Penny when the office had a strict dress code. They no longer fit and the office is jeans friendly (yay) now.

  43. I like both dresses. Another plus on printed dresses is that if they get dirty, its not that noticeable !
    How was it wearing the tulip cut, were you able to sit comfortably?

    1. Because the tulip hem is quite low and it's a wrap style it's so easy to wear as it doesn't 'spilt' very high. Very comfortable!
