Printed Shirts, Pencil Skirts and Colourful Cardigans With Mulberry Bayswater

With the winter weather arriving in Brisbane and it feeling a lot colder in the mornings, it gave me the wonderful opportunity to wear two of my newly purchased cardigans right away! I picked up these cardigans in the Jeanswest knitwear sale last month. I couldn't resist getting two of them!

What I wore:

JacketJeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
Shirt: Zara star print shirt
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (get it second-hand and cheaper here)

Why I wore it:

You might remember that I already have a little red cardigan. I decided to donate that one and replace it with this. It's thicker, warmer and with longer sleeves. I also I love the button feature! It's got a button on either side of the cardigan you can use to button up the hems. You can use it for breastfeeding, or to change the knit into a cowl neck top. Just wearing it simply here, letting the waterfall drape shine and the red pop against the black outfit.

Cooler weather means long sleeves more regularly too! I'm so pleased to be able to get this star print shirt out again. It's one of those pieces that is formal enough for work with the buttons but casual enough for stay at home mum style with denim. I love how it looked with the pencil skirt.

With the red cardigan being a big bright pop of colour with my outfit I went with a classic neutral tan for my accessories, with my Marc Jacobs ballet flats and Mulberry Bayswater bag.

Sadly, this may be last time I wear this shirt. I stupidly didn't check the setting on the iron and burned literally right through it when I tried to go over it quickly. So annoyed with myself! I'm going to take it to my tailor and see if it can be turned into a tank after I burned right through one of the sleeves.


Last worn: star print shirt, ponte pencil skirt, camel flats, Mulberry Bayswater. First time I've worn the cardigan as it's a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

It was this navy cardigan I'd seen on the website that prompted my trip into Jeanswest. When I saw the red one above hanging next to it, I decided to take them both in to try on, to pick my favourite. I decided I liked them both enough to buy them! I think this navy will be the perfect neutral to add to my winter wardrobe. I like how it worked with the blacks in this outfit, and just as the red cardigan did above, it kept me cosy on my autumn morning commute to work.

Printed Shirts For The Office Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:

With a neutral printed skirt and a black pencil skirt, you have an easy and professional outfit for work, especially when you add a classic bag like the Mulberry Bayswater. For a little fun and colour with your outfit, you can add a cardigan just as I have in these outfits here. If your workplace is more formal, just leave the cardigan in your bag when you get to your desk.

  3. How smart to pick up both the cardigans since they will get so much wear. Especially that they have so much versatility with that button and making them look so different!!
    Hopefully you had a wonderful weekend, Mica!!
    We were able to go to the sidewalk chalk art festival and see so many great artists' work!!

  13. I absolutely love the scarlet red cardigan you got. Paired with a pencil skirt, it looks fantastic. I also really like the second cardigan, the second outfit is really nice as well. The bag is stunning. It matches both outfit perfectly. Great styling. Have a wonderful week ahead.

  20. Happy new week! I adore both looks and you layered beautifully with the cardi. That's a bummer about your shirt. I hope you can re purpose it. ..and the bag as always is fabulous.

    It's getting super hot here. I spent the day taking a class at the gym then relaxing at the pool. I pray you have a wonderful week

  27. These are great cardigans Mica! And as you know I do love that drape/button detail. Is this the first time I've seen the Bayswater have an outing... or maybe I just haven't noticed it. It's a great bag! As for the Zara shirt with the sleeve snafu, hopefully the tailor can make it into a tank, I've done the same before with the iron!

  29. That stinks you might have to get rid of the star shirt. Hopefully the tailor can fix the burn mark. A red cardigan is a must have in my color. It such a fun and classic pop of color. Have a great week.

  32. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Renovating can be so hard when you're living in the house you're renovating. Any kind of work around the house can be very time demanding, but when you're happy with the home you live in, it makes it all worth while. Have a lovely week ahead.

  33. Mica, I love your waterfall cardis! And you look so fab in both these colours. Such great fall pieces for sure. Also digging your Mulberry. I've been wanting one since the days Alexa Chung started using their bags:D
    PS I hope you were able to save the shirt.

  35. Absolutely adore the burst of colour with the fist cardigan, it really makes the whole look pop! Adore the bag also, I used to have one quite similar and loved it until it broke - maybe I should give this brand a go?

    Have a great week!
