Plain Tees and Printed Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Bags

When the heat hits, I look for simple easy outfits that don't have any unnecessary layers. A plain tee and a printed maxi skirt is simple summer style. And spring style, as I wore these a few weeks ago when it was still spring!

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

I adore this skirt so much and it was the first one that came to mind when picking an outfit to wear to meet Sasha. It's so light in the heat and swishes beautifully when you walk, kind of creating its own breeze. The day was forecast to be extremely hot, so we ended up spending more time indoors than anticipated.

Sasha is another Brisbane blogger and while she lives a little distance away from me, we caught up at a mid point in the city, at the state library. The cafe there was lovely and very quiet until I showed up with the boys! In the end we ducked into the kids play area at the library so the boys could run around a little more and we could continue chatting. Always so nice meeting another blogging friend in person, even more so when they are as interesting as Sasha. We spoke for a couple of hours, which seemed to be over in a few minutes, before I took the boys for lunch in the city and headed home.

Keeping things simple with the outfit, I went with a neutral black tee, a red bag to match the red skirt, and my latest necklace purchase to match the gold hardware on the bag. You can see why I enjoy Sasha's blog so much, we have very similar style! Thanks to Mr 4 who kindly took the photo for us.

Why I wore it:

Thankfully this day wasn't as hot as the one above. As you can see, there was even a bit of a breeze! I kept to the simple outfit formula I'd liked so much above, going a little more colourful this time with the basic red tee and navy striped maxi skirt. I accessorised with the baby friendly necklace as we spent the morning at our local ABA group, the topic was baby / toddler massage.

The last time I did a baby massage class my now 2 and a half year old was a tiny little 3 week old, so I was really looking forward to it! I went in with two very eager to help little boys, which quickly turned into me chasing kids around the room in between attempting to practice the massage techniques. I definitely don't do the massage techniques as often as I should, but there are so many benefits to it so I'm going to try do it more often. It's a lot more fun to do when the boys are big enough to give feedback on what they like too!

Stuck with this neutral Rebecca Minkoff Love bag as I still had it out after wearing it a few days before and the grey was a good pairing with the brighter red and navy outfit.

How You Can Wear It

Printed maxi skirts can be a little daunting as they are such large pieces of print! You can keep things easy and simple by picking a plain tee to wear with them. You can go with a neutral black like I did in the first outfit, or try something different and add a little more colour like in the second outfit. You can't go wrong pairing a plain basic with a fun printed piece!

  16. So nice that you had the time to meet another blogger and have a fun chat. It's always great to connect with the person behind a blog that you like reading.
    I like your two print skirts!

  17. It's so funny that you're talking about the heat and Summer. We're (most of the USA) is wet right now and the mountain ranges are getting snow. I love seeing your warm-weather outfits and I love your Minkoff bags!

  18. I agree that maxi skirts are great for the Summer! Both of these outfits look really cool and comfy!

  19. The accessories really make this outfit. Of course, you had me at the color red!

  20. I love how you styled your maxi dress! It goes together really well - big plus when your bag matches, hehe. I love how you have quite a collection of RM bags! Great for so many different outfit combinations!

  21. Such a beautiful skirt on you! And Rebecca Minkoff can do no wrong <3

  22. Orange often doesn't get the attention it deserves, so I'm happy to see you wear it. Orange's such a happy colour, isn't it? I do like both of these outfits, they are both lovely but the first one is my fav because that orange maxi is so gorgeous and it looks great paired with a darker top. The second outfit is lovely as well. Orange top and a navy blue skirt work really well.

    I do understand about the heat, once it gets really warm, it is best to keep things simple. Maxi skirts are such a life saver during the warmer months. Have a lovely week ahead darling!

    I'm not sure is 100 metres available on Netflix, I only found information that it is available of Canadian Netflix but I'm not sure does that help. It's a great film, what I found most touching is how it showed the way family members can and should support one another. I think that's always important but especially so when there is someone suffering from any kind of illness or going through a difficult time in general.

  23. skirts are so comfortable in the hot weather aren't they? I love studded red purse, really cute. Have a great week.

  25. It feels so strange to hear about the hot weather you are getting! Here in England it's getting really chilly! Love your red bag, what a great collection you have! xx Maria

  26. I don't own a maxi skirt but it occurred to me last month that I need one. I love how easy it is to wear and still look put together. That's so nice that you and your friend had a chance to meet up. Blogging buddies are the best and I hope to meet more blogging friends in the future. Your red RM bag is beautiful but as you know I might be biased as I am an RM fan! I hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday!

  27. I particularly love that first outfit, it's just such a lovely color and print. It goes very well with both the jewelry and the bag.

  28. I love how the colors coordinate with each other in these two looks--they go together so well :) Both of those skirts are so fun, that orange print one is a favorite! How great to get to meet up with another blogger too, it sounds like a good time!
