Weekday Wear Linkup! Wrap Tops and Blue Pencil Skirts With Pink City Bag

Two lovely wrap tops with navy textured pencil skirts with the Weekday Wear Linkup! I picked these wrap tops to wear as I was hunting through my wardrobe for more pieces to donate and I realised I hadn't worn these in a while. They were definitely overdue a wear.

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart silver tassel earrings
Necklace: M initial silver pendant necklace
TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

This navy wrap top is such a comfortable piece to wear, because I sized up when I bought it as I was pregnant. I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this top and skirt together before, the navy lace works so well with the wrap top.

I added the pink Balenciaga city bag for a little extra burst of colour. I wasn't 100% happy with the shoes though, I think another pair would have worked better, maybe a silver pair like I wore below.


Last worn: navy wrap top, tassel earrings, initial necklace, lace pencil skirt, camel flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above, I wore a similar outfit the next day I was in the office. I love taking an outfit and following the same formula to create something new without trying too hard! This time around it was my grey jersey wrap top and my navy jacquard pencil skirt. I picked silver flats this time, and liked the outfit a lot more. Surprised to see that this top hasn't been worn in over a year though!

Again I stuck with the pink Balenciaga city bag - it's a fun pop of colour! And swapped the grey earrings for these navy ones instead. While the earrings are gold, I still went with silver necklaces and I don't feel they looked out of place.


Last worn: grey wrap top, navy tassel earrings, star necklace, Silhoupette, jacquard pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag (above).

How You Can Wear It

While wrap tops work great for breastfeeding (and it was the reason why I bought these tops!) they work equally well when you're not breastfeeding. They are a nice alternative to a plain top, and neutral colours like these mean they work well in an office. If you're looking for a wrap top that will do double duty for corporate style, ones with a modesty snap like these ones are a good way to go.

  2. That skirt is so stunning. I also am in love with that navy wrap. Especially paired with the pink Balenciaga. Those two are seriously two peas in a pod. Stunning Mica.

    Hope you have an amazing week ahead.

  4. I really like that blue wrap top and it goes so well with the skirt! They look like they were made for one another, isn't that funny how that works? I liked the shoes with the first outfit but you could change the shoes out next time and have a different look. That's what's fun about accessories, right?!
    Hope you have a fabulous week Mica and thanks for the link up!

  12. Lately I've been going through my closet and finding the pieces that haven't been worn much this season. But I don't get out of the house often so I still have a bunch of pieces sitting unworn...OYY. I should start doing some activities out of the house or something but I'm too shy/lazy, haha

  17. I love wrap dresses, which I have a couple of, but I don't think I have any wrap tops ... Must remedy that soon, as they're very flattering. I'm loving your first outfit the most, you really suit this shade of blue! Hope you're having a great week, Mica xxx

  20. Oh a wrap top how fun and yes practical! I love both skirts. They look like the inverted versions of each other. The color and lace pattern is so feminine and pretty and totally good for the office

  27. Wrap tops are definitely a great alternative to a plainer tee like you said. I love how you styled both looks. The tops look great with the printed skirts.

  44. That first outfit is my favourite - the pieces go so well together (and you know that's my favourite skirt of yours). The second top, while flattering, is kind of a dull colour on you - I like seeing you in brighter, more saturated colours. Your "bag game" is always spot on. Lovely!

    Have a wonderful week, my dear!
