Brisbane Bloggers Brunch 2018 Vlog! Plus Jewel Toned Tops and Skinny Jeans Outfits

With two busy days planned, I went with a casual and comfortable outfit formula. Skinny jeans and jewel toned tops, accessorised with Rebecca Minkoff Love bags and some cosy scarves. I included a vlog of one of the days below, it was so much fun and a different kind of thing from what I'd normally do so I hope you enjoy watching it.

What I wore:

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I wore this to the Kids Business Brisbane Blogger's Brunch! I've been invited along to a few of them, but this is the first one in Brisbane, and as I didn't have anything else planned for the day I decided to go. I was a little nervous about it all, so I stuck with pieces I knew I'd love. This cute boho blouse, my favourite grey skinny jeans and my cute little Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag, as I was able to go kid free for the day.

The purpose of the brunch was to meet and get to know some brands, a few which I have had the pleasure of discussing projects with so you might see them pop up in future. You can view the video below for all the fun of the day - including what happened when I used power tools! Multiple power tools! 😂

It was a warmer day than expected so I definitely didn't need a jacket, I even regretted the cosy scarf a couple times, but the venue was air conditioned so I didn't mind too much once I was inside.


Last worn: navy blouse, paisley print snood, grey skinny jeans, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag.

Other ways to wearnavy blouse worn two ways, paisley print snood and shift dress, grey skinny jeans and monochrome outfit, metallic ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag and a blazer.

Perfect for pregnancy: paisley print snood in second trimester, metallic ballet flats in third trimester.

Sharing all the fun of the event, including more about what I wore and what's in my bag.




What I wore:

Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl parrot print scarf (c/o)
TopJeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Another busy day, with again a few kid free hours. It doesn't happen often so hubby and I took advantage by powering through a to do list, with a bit of driving around. Again, it was a warmer day so I didn't need a jacket. The fun parrot print scarf (another one I got for my Fashion Scarf girl brand rep role) was just the perfect piece with the rich teal henley. I loved the colours in this outfit.

Unlike the outfit above, I kept things simple with my handbag and went with my neutral Rebecca Minkoff grey Love cross body bag instead of a colourful one, letting the scarf be the extra colour and print in my outfit.


Last worn: teal henley, Prima skinny jeans, Walnut Melbourne flats, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it's a recent (c/o) addition to my wardrobe.

Other ways to wearteal henley and silk skirt, Prima skinny jeans and foil print tee, Walnut Melbourne flats and fit and flare dress, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag worn 30 ways.

Perfect for pregnancyteal henley in second trimester, Prima skinny jeans in second trimester, Walnut Melbourne flats in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag in third trimester.



Jewel Toned Tops Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Jewel toned tops go great with denim! The neutral skinny jeans I'm wearing here are a perfect choice, and you can always add a further touch of colour to your outfit with accessories. Could be a bright bag like the coral one with the navy top, or the parrot print scarf with the teal henley.

  4. Cute RM bags! I can stare at them all day long. I did buy the belt bag I mentioned to you a week or so ago only to return it. The straps didn't have enough holes to get it around my waist. Total bummer! Love the jeweled shirt you are wearing on the first outfit. I love the darker hue and the jeweled embellishments are a nice addition to add to an otherwise simple shirt. It looks great paired with your peach bag. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and happy Friday!

  5. The blogger's event looks so much fun! Good to see you in a smaller bag and know what's inside. Love these looks, the second scarf is really neat. Hoping it won't rain too much this weekend since we plan to see the Japanese garden. Wishing you have a fun weekend.

  6. You can't go wrong with skinny jeans and a richly coloured top in my book - it's a good way to be casual but also look perfectly pulled together.

  18. Hi Mica
    I was thinking that you were upset with me and without knowing why, I felt a certain coldness of treatment and I thought that you were avoiding me so I decided not to come and comment on your blog. But as you commented mine is because it must have been some misunderstanding on my part, I apologize.

    I'm happy to know that new projects will appear here on the blog. I'm dying of curiosity, I always like to see people evolve in their careers.

    As for your looks you are lovely in both. I love skinny jeans. and scarves around the neck is a successful formula.
    have a great weekend
    Kisses

  19. You look amazing in teal/turquoise - you need more of that in your closet! How fun to meet up with some other bloggers! I wish my city wasn't so hard to get to (being on an island).

  23. Both outfits are lovely.I really like the one you wore for Brisbane bloggers brunch. That scarf is really cute and it is good that it came in handy once you got in an air-conditioned space.

    The second outfit looks so cute and well put together. That teal top is so perfect for you, this colour looks fantastic on you. Great jeans too! It's nice you managed to go for a little drive. Have a great weekend!

  33. It's really strange but despite knowing they quite obviously happen, I kind of forget other countries have blogging events too so it's nice to watch your vlog and get a bit more insight!

    Also I own so many pairs of skinny jeans! You just can't go wrong can you?
