Spring Dresses, Cute Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The best thing about spring weather is getting to wear more dresses! I do like to wear most of my wardrobe year round, but it's so good in spring when you can shed the layers and just wear dresses and comfortable sneakers without tights.

The colourful scarves were really just for decoration and didn't need to keep me warm, on two beautiful spring days where we made the most of the sunshine at the park.

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This grey skater dress is a little worn piece in my wardrobe. In the past I've wondered why as it's always a nice piece to wear. Last worn over a year ago! Wearing it again reminded me I really should enjoy it more often, and not pass it over for more 'interesting' printed dresses.

They grey dress was a beautiful backdrop for the bold red poppy print scarf and mini Avery tote bag. Also was a nice length for walking around and playing at the playground with the boys. Being knee length I found it an okay length, even if I was a little more considerate with exactly how I crouched down to toddler level!

First time I've walked so far in these shoes - and I was really pleased they were so comfortable all day. There was a little rubbing right before we got home but I think that was because my sock slipped down. We decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and walk to a park a couple of Ks away, a little further than our usual park. The boys loved it though, it was such a nice day.

Rebecca Minkoff Vs Balenciaga:



Showing you more of my Rebecca Minkoff and Balenciaga collection side by side and talking about the similarities and differences of each. Since they are the two brands most common in my handbag collection, I also share my favourite and why!

Why I wore it:

Another lovely spring day, another morning at the park! Took the boys on a quick errand in the morning and then we walked to our local park to enjoy the sunshine. I love the spring days where it's warm enough to get out and get some fresh air but it's not so hot you're suffering!

I really liked the orange scarf with the Aztec print on this dress. The print wasn't as orange as I thought it would be when I was planning this outfit, but I felt the crinkles on the scarf still worked nicely with the lines in the print. I did consider adding a denim jacket to this as it was a little breezy in the morning, but I actually couldn't find it.  I had slipped off the hanger in my wardrobe, I found it later that evening. While there were a few moments during the day I felt a bit of a chill, with all of the walking and running around I was pretty warm and glad I hadn't found the jacket in time.

Picked my little silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC to wear with this outfit, as it felt quite busy with the bright scarf and printed dress. I loved how well it worked, it's one of those neutral bags that goes with everything. Most importantly, it slips inside the baby bag which I still carry even on trips to the park as who knows when the boys will find a puddle and I'll need that extra change of clothes!

How You Can Wear It:

Spring weather is perfect for a simple outfit formula of sneakers and dresses. A bold bright scarf can be used to add an extra touch of colour to your outfit, and keep you warmer if the temperatures fluctuate through the day.

  1. You look so pretty in both of these dresses, Mica! I love how you've styled both dresses. The red poppy scarf looks fab against the grey dress and I love how the bag matches the poppies and your sneakers match the dress! Fabulous! I love the Aztec print on the second dress and how the pattern on your scarf complements it so well and adds fabulous colour too! Hope you have a great weekend, Mica! ;) XXX

  28. I try to do the same and get most of my clothes worn year round. Your grey dress is my favorite out of the two outfits and it's a nice color contrast with your printed scarf! Red is my favorite color but do not own a red bag - truly love RM and this one you are wearing.

  31. I love how the use of a scarf can instantly change or even improve an outfit! I definitely need to improve my collection as I literally have one!

    I also adore those sparkly sneakers, glad to hear they don't rub either as that can be the one issue with cute shoes!

  38. These are both lovely spring outfits! I love how the gray dress makes the red poppy print scarf stand out. And the aztec print of the other dress is really pretty! Even thought it's fall here this is making me want to wear more dresses and scarfs. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
