Printed Dresses, Silver Bag and Sneakers with Colourful Scarves: Spring Style

I debated about buying these glitter sneakers for a while. Given how much I've been reaching for them lately, I'm so glad I went back to the store to buy them. They work perfectly with spring dresses and scarves, and were only $8 at Kmart!

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Couldn't resist going matchy-matchy with this outfit! Silver glitter shoes, and metallic silver mini MAC bag with a blue scarf and printed dress. Took me a while to decide on a scarf to wear in the morning - sometimes I leave my accessory decisions to the last minute even if I plan my outfits the night before. I tried this on and knew it would be perfect with the blue boho print of the dress.

While I don't wear this dress much over winter (I have layered it a few times) it gets worn frequently over spring and summer. Was a nice and simple outfit for a trip out shopping with the boys and my sister. We started the day at the playground before heading to the shops for a browse and some lunch (I've already shared my purchases!). Such a fun day, and nice to catch up with my sister. The boys loved it, even if we did spend time shopping, as they love their aunt.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC: Review & What's In My Bag

Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit combo above so much, I did what I usually do and repeated it again a few days later with different pieces. Kept the silver mini MAC and glitter sneakers, and picked a different blue printed dress with an orange scarf this time. Was a comfortable outfit for a morning with the kids at an ABA-funded CPR and choking course.

You've seen me wear this dress with red a lot in the past. I've always thought the print was red. I saw on A Pocket Full of Polka Dots blog Jennie said it was orange and it made me question my eyes! I think it's a very orangey red, and could go either way. I appreciate her post as now I have a new colour combo to wear with this dress!

The longer knee length dress came in really helpful as I was running around with the boys before and after the course. It was a great course, I think you can never really have too many first aid refreshers, especially as I know from experience when things go wrong with the kids my mind goes blank! You always hope you'll never have to use anything you learn at one of these courses, but you want to remember it just in case.

How You Can Wear It:


A dress and sneakers is a great outfit combination for spring when it's not quite warm enough to bare your toes in sandals! Fun sparkly ones add a little extra interest to your look, and work with any printed dress you have. Bold scarves that match one of the colours in the print of your dress is a good way to stay warm in the colder mornings and evenings too.

  4. I am the same way...I have a pair of sneakers like this and wore them a ton at first. I'm not sure why I stopped, but I'm going to get them back out (at least on the warmer days...)

  6. The silver mini Mac is such a great neutral. I've been thinking about a larger silver neutral bag which I'm not sure works as well - this size is great!

  14. So happy that you went back and got those shoe. I so wanted a pair but Walmart didn't carry them in woman's shoe. I did get my daughter a pair of gold glitter shoe. I hope you have an awesome weekend. So far we have nothing planned for this weekend.

  16. These are both super-cute outfits, Mica! I think you've really hit on a winning formula for you. The patterned dresses mean you don't have to worry too much about accessories - the scarves and bag and glitter shoes (LOVE) are just right. Great for a mom on the go like you!

    Wishing you a fabulous weekend, my dear!

  17. Those sneakers are awesome, Mica! They go so well with both dresses. I'm so sad we don't have Kmart here in Canada. We used to shop there a lot when I was younger, but they sadly all closed down.:(
    Have an awesome weekend!

  18. What a great deal! I think they closed all of the Kmarts over here. Those sneakers are super cute with both of your dresses!

  19. Oh man, you got your sneakers for such a great price. Glitter works out when you have patterns going on with your outfit. I like how you styled the first outfit - good gist of blue. I like that the second outfit gives me some warm autumn vibes without being hit with a bunch of seasonal colors.

  31. That is a pretty combination of blues and metallic. Who would have thought it's only $8 from Kmart, such a fab find. It was a hot weekend in Sydney but now it's back to cool temp. Hope you have a great week!
