Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Wrap Dresses, Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

No April fools here! Just my go-to work outfit formula when I'm feeling uninspired (a printed dress) and another Weekday Wear Linkup at the end of the post!

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Dress: Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Because I wasn't feeling very inspired when thinking up what to wear, I went with this simple faux wrap dress, navy earrings to match the navy bag and black ballet flats to match the blazer. Nice and simple.

A slightly chiller morning with some rain, so I wore my blazer for my commute to work. I usually have a blazer or cardigan with me to battle the cold aircon at work! This faux wrap dress is sleeveless so the blazer was appreciated, especially as it started raining while I took pics. I usually stay away from faux wraps being petite, but this is from the Target Danni Minogue petites's range so hits at the perfect spot!

The necklace was a last minute addition and something I think didn't work that well with the dress - a different length of necklace would have been better.

Last worn: navy tassel earrings, black blazer, silver circle necklace, geometric print faux wrap dress, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearblack blazer and jeans, geometric print faux wrap dress and trench coat, black ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and navy blouse.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I had a cardigan in my bag to wear over this short sleeved dress in the office too, but as it was a warmer autumn morning I didn't need it to keep me warm while taking photos.

It's not the first time I've worn this wrap dress with the Regan bag and the camel ballet flats - as I pointed out on Instagram, if a combination works, why change it? I like trying something different when I rewear things, even if it's just changing an accessory, but I'll happily completely copy things I've worn before. Even if I did slightly change the outfit this time by picking a different necklace!

Last worn: silver initial necklace, watercolour print wrap dress, camel flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

  10. Those are both really cute dresses. Have a great week.

  11. You look great in both of these wrap dresses! Interesting, the Danni Minogue for Target line must be an Aussie exclusive. I don't think we had that here in the states!

  12. I like the longer necklace with the first dress, Mica.In fact, I might have even worn a couple necklaces. I've been trying hard to layer my necklaces lately, so you can see where my mind is...ha ha

  13. I just love that bag! Such a gorgeous navy!! And the llama is adorable, hehe! Perfect work outfits

  14. Both of these wrap dresses look amazing on you. I love how the first dress looks paired with a navy jacket and bag. I actually love that necklace with that dress, but I can see why you might prefer a shorter one. I really like the pattern on the second dress. It looks wonderful on you.

  15. Both of these are work appropiate, liked the second one more

  16. Having pieces you can always turn to when you’re not feeling inspired or in a rush is so important! I love the dress you chose on that kind of day, as well as the second one; those camel flats look so good with it! Thanks for sharing and have a great week!



  17. Both of these outfits are very chic. When I have no idea what I want to wear I head over to Pinterest. Have a great week.

  18. You have so many nice bags. I'm just too lazy to change mine. HA! Love both looks. Great office wear for sure!

  19. Both of these looks are great. I like the first one in particular. And nice that it is cool enough now to wear a blazer. And oh boy the aircon at work. Every place I have ever worked it has always been a battle between people who are hot or cold. Ugh. I worked places where people turned the heat on in the office during a heat wave b/c they said the AC was making them cold. And people who turn fans on during the polar vortex b/c they say the heat is making them too hot. First world problems for sure lol

  23. Loving both of these looks! I hope you're having a lovely Monday, so far!

  24. I managed the whole day without any Aprils Fools jokes - to be honest, I didn't even think about it until now.

  25. Both are cute dresses, and they look great with that navy tote—it's such a classic color and shape!

(: Love me some prints!

  34. I love blazers and these looks are great. I like the wrap dress and you look lovely. I usually carry a blazer or cardigan with me because the office is freezing.


  35. Love the dresses! so colorful and perfect for spring!

  36. I like the blazer and dress look. A very comfy uniform for work.

  37. These are great formula outfits, especially for a mom on the go like you, Mica! I actually thought that the necklace in the first outfit was a brooch.

  38. I love that navy dress. It's such a beautiful colour and print on you. I also love Danni M's range at Target. One of my best ever buys was a denim jacket. It's such a great cut and fit. I always get people asking me where I got it from!


  39. That's a really pretty dress, Mica...I love navy blue. It's always a good idea to have a standby look for those days when we just don't feel the usual creativity when getting dressed. Have a great week!

  40. Sometimes when I am stumped I like going back to my blog and copying myself! Both of your wrap dresses are perfect office wear!

  41. I love dresses especially in warmer weather. Your wrap dress is a classic and I love the print!

  42. Mica that bag is so cute! I only own one navy bag and it's a small suede one from Loeffler Randall. I love this one! Goes so well with all your looks.

  43. I actually forgot about April Fool's until I started seeing jokes on Instagram so the first one was a fun reminder.

    I like both ways you styled wrap dresses, but the second look is my favorite. I really like the combination of colors.
