Grey Knits And Green Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags

More simple winter mum style: cosy grey knits, with green skinny jeans and two different Rebecca Minkoff Love bags.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to take the boys to a local indoor play area, as it had been raining overnight and was predicted to rain more so we couldn't head to the park, but they needed to run around a bit. I picked an easy and comfortable outfit, with my green skinny jeans that have become a frequent go-to this winter, my favourite (and only!) snood and my Converse. The grey knit is one I thrifted before our Europe trip and took overseas with me, it worked well with my olive jeans so I wanted to try wearing it with these brighter green ones. I really liked this combination.

I'd been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff love cross body bag that week so decided to keep wearing it with this outfit, I thought the neutral grey went nicely with the knit.

Why I wore it:

Despite following a similar outfit formula, I didn't like this second outfit as much as the first one. I thought the olive skinny jeans would go nicely with this fun foil polka dot print knit, and I did like the combination, especially when I matched the foil polka dots with the silver glitter shoes for a very sparkly outfit. You know I like a bit of matchy-matchy!

With the silver sparkle and then the pop of colour with the coral Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I felt that this outfit was enough as it was and I didn't add a scarf to it. It was a warm day, sitting in the sunshine at the playground, and I was glad I hadn't added the scarf as I didn't really need it.

I did feel that this outfit was missing a little something when I looked at the photos afterwards though, and wish I had added a scarf, I think the first outfit looked great because of the printed snood. A nice outfit, just one that feels a bit flat in the pics.

Grey Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey knit and jeans is a staple mum outfit for winter, especially paired with comfortable shoes like this! To mix it up a little, you can wear colourful denim instead of the classic blue, and add a printed scarf or brightly coloured bag to make your outfit pop.

  8. I read sometimes that you didn't like the 2nd look of an outfit formula as much as the first one and when I think about this, exactly the same happens to me, too :) But I love both of your looks and I see the shirt you bought before your trip to Europe is really versatile and cool!

  19. Mica, I actually really like both outfits! I agree with the comment above...I think it's the green jeans that's really making the first one pop:) And love both bags as well.
    PS I think you would totally rock the blue hair, but yeah...bleaching is so harsh! I've been doing it for decades so my hair has always been fried, but with your beautiful hair, I would not suggest it esp. if you're planning to donate again.:)

    1. Yeah I want to donate, maybe grown my hair a little longer before I do so I don't have to have my hair quite as short afterwards! So no bleach for me :(

  20. I love how that orange bag really pops in the second outfit especially! These are both so cute! Hope you are having a great week!

  21. The bright green really pops in the first outfit - and the grey/black and marled scarf are classic additions. In the second outfit, you're doing two neutrals (one more cool, one more warm), so perhaps this muddies a bit. Some people like that, some like more contrast - I think that the bag in this outfit makes it. I do adore that you matched your shiny bits!

    1. Thanks Sheila! i think I would have preferred more contrast - you nailed it perfectly!

  23. For some reason green is one of the colors I rarely buy but you have given me some ideas about what colors would work well with it. I like the grey and green color combination.
