Plain Tees, Maxi Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

Wearing some plain tees with maxi skirts and the cutest Rebecca Minkoff love bag for easy mum style. I picked my Rebecca Minkoff love bag to wear as I felt it was overdue a wear!

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

When I saw this tee in store I thought it was a very bright red, even though the tag says coral. I think the camera picks up the orange of it a bit more. It's such a vibrant colour, but in a basic v-neck tee it's still so easy to wear.

Paired with my striped maxi skirt and again the Rebecca Minkoff love bag, this was a simple and comfortable outfit. I've worn a very similar outfit before with a different red tee! Went to the playground and library with the boys and ran a few errands afterwards.

Why I wore it:

Again, repeating an outfit formula I loved and wearing the same thing a few days later just with different pieces. I stuck with the red and blue combo though!

It's not the first time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt with a red top. I had to double check in my blog archives that I hadn't worn this plain red tee with the maxi skirt before, it seems like such an obvious combination! I love the way this tee works with blue denim. A nice casual and comfortable outfit was needed for a quiet day, daycare drop off and working from home before doing the pickup.

The Rebecca Minkoff love bag is a classic and the structured shape dresses up a casual tee and maxi skirt outfit a little more.

How You Can Wear It:

Red and blue is a fun colour combination - and as you can see from the navy and coral and red and chambray outfits, it's something you can try in any shade! Wearing a maxi skirt instead of jeans is a good way to break out of a jeans and tee rut, while still having all the comfort and coverage of jeans.

  1. Such a cute bag and I love how versatile it looks. I really want a grey bag xx

  2. I really like that striped maxi skirt with the coral top! That color is so pretty on you! I hope you have a wonderful weekend Mica!

  3. I love maxis! I've started wearing them so much during the summer - with a plain T-shirt or sleeveless shirt. They really make it look like you put effort into dressing (when you know you really didn't). I love both of yours - I have a patterned one and a plain one but nothing with any flare to it and I need to remedy that this summer (now, how to sneak one more thing into my closet....). That coral color is gorgeous! It's my favorite nail polish color for spring and summer. It changes color depending on what you wear with it and the lighting. It goes with reds and oranges and peaches and apricots (OK, now I'm getting hungry). And, of course, another of your amazing bags. I really love the size of this one and keep saying I'm going to be better about switching purses to suit my outfits (I buy a bag that goes with everything and that's it....I have others but I'm always afraid I'll leave something out that I really need (like my driver's license or tinted lip balm) so I just don't :(


  4. Love the maxi skirts and the bag is so chic! Love the quilted look.

  5. You always get a lot of wear from your bags which is really great. I wonder how you get time to do videos, they are really clear and good. Have a fun weekend!

  6. I love that bright orange colour - it's a great piece to add a dash of colour to an outfit. I need to get some more brightly coloured tops into my closet...

  7. The colours of these tops really suit you, Mica, and of course, you always wear the maxi skirts so effortlessly.:)
    PS You should totally be a spokesperson for RM! You always make me wanna get the bags.:)
    Have a lovely weekend:)

  8. Loving both of these! They would be perfect to wear on any of our US-themed holidays, haha....4th of July, Memorial Day ;)
    It's funny how sometimes the most obvious pairings don't come to us until we've worn something a million times

  9. You've styled this top so well!! My favorite is the first one - with the striped maxi :) I love the nautical vibe it gives off.
    Hope you have a fabulous weekend <3
    xo, allie

  10. You know that is one of my fave bags of yours Mica.
    Oh and if i ever came across a chambray skirt like yours i'd buy it.

  11. Love both of these easy going looks. You can never go wrong with a t-shirt. I need to get a new black and white one for this spring and summer. Have a great weekend.

  12. I love your Rebecca Minkoff bag! So pretty and versatile :)

  13. Aren't maxi skirts wonderful to wear, for any occasion? I'm especially loving your first outfit, as I think navy and orange are very striking together. Have a great weekend, Mica! xxx

  14. Fantastic color. At first when I heard that would be The color of this season, I wasn't very pleased. But I can see it now as a gorgeous color! Happy weekend.

  15. You know I love a maxi skirt, and you're looking great in these rich reds, Mica! The first outfit is my preference, as the tee looks like a better quality one; the second tee looks a little too droopy - maybe it's the arm length?

    Have a fabulous weekend, my dear!

  16. I had to look twice because I thought this might be the same top!! And you know I love this color---it's so bright and fun!

  17. Maxi skirts look really get on you! I like the way you added bright tees on top.
    Have a great weekend!

  18. I love this color combination. I usually pair red with black, but the blue is such a great neutral to pair red with. I love how you styled both looks. Both look comfy and cute.

    I hope you have a great weekend.

  19. I love how you style your outfits! I like the plain top with a patterned bottom combo. The bag is small enough that you can fit the necessities without it being too much. The color combination isn't bad at all! I need to try this out. Thanks for sharing!

  20. After watching your YouTube clip, I'm convinced that I need a grey bag just like yours! Haha ;) It really does go with absolutely everything and is such a great colour and style. I've only started to appreciate grey as a fab alternative to black in the last few years. I'm definitely way overdue for a grey bag then! ;) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Mica! XXX

  21. Yes, the first tee does look more orange then red in the photograph. Sometimes camera picks up colours differently. Who knows maybe that is how they label colours in the store? Anyhow, you look lovely in that coral tee and striped maxi. I really like the second outfit with the longer orange tee and a denim maxi skirt.

  22. Love this bag and it still looks in such amazing condition. They are great quality.

  23. That bag is gorgeous Mica and you have styled it so well here! Have a fabulous week ahead darling.


  24. I love the maxi skirts with the tees! The red/orange and blue go together beautifully and it looks like a perfect outfit for a warmer day. And your grey purse is really pretty too! I hope you had a great weekend Mica x

  25. I understand why you bought the first shirt as the colour is really wonderful vibrant! The pairing with the striped maxi skirt is perfect and you are right the combination of the second outfit is really obvious and I like it although you know finally you wore it for the first time!

  26. What a fabulous updated nautical look ! I love the necklace. The denim skirt is so pretty and versatile also. I adore the Rebecca Minkoff love cross body bag !

  27. Love the colour of your top, Mica it is very vibrant and stands out. The necklace looks great against it. You are a queen of maxi skirts, you wear them so well. Have a great week ahead

  28. I agree, the first top looks more orange on camera, and I love that color!

  29. Loved the skirt,, also the styling of colours are amazing

  30. I love the coral tee with the striped maxi and happy to say I have something like that in my closet! Might be my Sunday outfit next week! Thanks for the inspiration!

  31. I love this combination. The orange top is such a fun pop of color. Pinned this. My problem is, I can never really find a skirt like that that I feel confident in. They never really fit the way I want...::sighs::...


  32. Ooh I love that red top + blue skirt combo, the colors are so pretty! I love how effortless both of these looks are, yet really put-together at the same time. Perfect mom style I think! :)

  33. Oh so looking forward to summer here and floaty maxis. I adore the colour of your top. Thanks for linking to Muttonstylemonday

  34. Lovely colour combination, and the Rebecca Minkoff bag is fabulous! Thanks for linking up!
