Dresses, Ankle Boots, Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Bags For Spring

While the weather is warming up as summer is arriving soon here in Brisbane, I took advantage of a few cooler days to wear a much loved spring outfit formula: dresses and ankle boots. I added some cute scarves for an extra touch of colour too!

What I wore:

Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn mustard yellow with this dress and definitely won't be the last - I really like the combination! A nice and simple outfit with the black printed dress, ankle boots and matching mustard accessories for a quiet day with the boys. We ran a few errands. I picked up my Christmas dress at Jeanswest (as the first store I went to didn't have my size!) and grabbed some groceries after spending some time at the library. Nice relaxing day.

As we weren't in a rush to be anywhere that morning and could set our own pace for the day, I decided to try snap another twirl pic with this dress. It twirls so beautifully, it's just not easy to capture on camera! I was pleased with the shot I got.

BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Making use of the easy, comfortable outfit formula and wearing a dress and ankle boots again for another quiet day with the boys. I really treasure the SAHM days I get when working part time. On this day, despite the warm sunny weather, we spent the day inside at the library for music time, and then running a couple of errands before heading home. I did kinda wish we'd spent the day outside instead when the rain set it in for the rest of the week, and we were forced to stay indoors, ha!


I was sure that I'd worn this bird print scarf and the chambray dress together before, I was quite surprised to find that I hadn't when I searched through the blog. With the blue dress and scarf together and neutral tan ankle boots, I thought the red striped mini MAC bag waas a cute touch of colour. And a little bit of print mixing.

How You Can Wear It:

A simple dress and ankle boots is a quick and easy spring outfit formula, perfect for a busy mum. For a little extra interest to your outfit, you can add a colourful or printed scarf. It helps keep you cosy for the cooler mornings and evenings, and can easily be taken off when the days warm up.

  12. Both dresses are so pretty, Mica! I love how you've styled both of them with scarves and ankle boots. I love the matching mustard in the first look and that chambray dress in the second look is so pretty and versatile. I'm on the hunt for something similar at the moment! ;) I love that berry stripe bag too! Hope you're having a great week, Mica! XXX

  13. The dress really twirls beautiful. As for the combination: I admire it on others, but on myself I find that ankle boots paired with dresses shorten my legs significantly.

  20. Love the mustard/yellow paired with the black, I always worry about pairing those two colors and looking like a 'bumblebee' but it works well! And, that fitted chambray dress is too cute on you!

  28. It's too bad that you didn't have the best weather, but hopefully it clears up soon.

    Both looks are lovely, but the first one is my favorite. I love the combination of black and yellow (actually shared a look in these colors recently). The dress is so beautiful and the yellow scarf gives it a wonderful pop of color.

  35. You are so good at rocking the yellow accessories, Mica! I really like yellow, but shy away from it because I'm always worried I'll make myself look ill! I guess it's one of those mind games I need to get over, haha! Your twirl pic is super cute! :)

  37. On one of my recent closet edits i got rid of my ankle boots, they were old and i was done with them. Gave them one last wear with a maxi dress.
    These two outfits work very well with ankle boots.

  38. Love the little mom edginess that these outfits have, definitely because of the flat ankle boots. The first outfit is my favorite one because of all the pops of mustard. I always love black with any yellow. The two scarves pull the dresses together, also.

    It is so amazing how as we are getting below 0 Celsius degrees, you guys are starting Summer. Happy Holiday month to you! =)
