Soft Knits And Maxi Skirts In Winter With Cross Body Bags

I love layering up my maxi skirts a little more for winter! A cosy comfy knit it a great pairing with a maxi skirt, for maximum comfort and extra warmth on a winter day.

SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold and windy day when I wore this - as you can see from my outfit being blown around a bit! It was so hard to get a pic without my scarf or hair over my face! I wasn't wearing leggings under this maxi skirt but I kind of wished I had - one of Brisbane's really cold winter mornings - the temps were down in single digits!

Our plan for the day was to go to the playground but the wind and the freezing temperatures made that a very unattractive option! Instead we just headed out on a couple of errands inside the nearest shopping centre to stay warm and get outside the house for a bit.

ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the day above, this was a much warmer day! No need for the extra leather jacket or scarf, and I wasn't wishing I'd worn leggings under my maxi skirt. Although I was wearing taller boots under it so my legs were pretty cosy!

Just a quiet Sunday, with church in the morning and then Church Online in the afternoon. I really like blue and red together, and I've worn this red skirt with other blue tops in the past.

It's the first time I've tried the red bag and maxi skirt together though, it was a nice bit of matchy-matchy. Since the red micro Avery bag has gold hardware, I wore my navy and gold beaded necklace and navy and gold tassel earrings. I really liked this outfit, so nice and colourful and very comfortable!

How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt can be worn in cooler weather and isn't just a summer piece! I've been enjoying wearing my maxi skirts over winter. Adding a nice soft cosy knit is a great way to winterise a maxi skirt, adding a few more layers like a scarf and leather jacket for really cold days!

  10. Love the shade of blue on your skirt! Both outfits look great especially love the red bag, although here in Canada they would be considered summer outfits since winter is a bit colder than Australia.

  27. Both of these outfits are so lovely! I definitely need to stock up on maxi skirts when it gets colder here.


  28. Your second outfit has me all heart eyes! The colors together are bold and beautiful!! Love that combo!

  29. I usually only wear my maxi skirts in the summer, it is usually rainy here in German winter, so they´d get soaked at the hem otherwise.

  30. I love a good maxi skirt! I've been wearing a lot of maxi dresses this summer in the States because they are soo good for the office; I just throw on a jean jacket and go!

  31. That rattan bag is gorgeous. Being a fan of maxi skirts, I love both of your outfits but, being a fan of lots of colour, the second one is my favourite! xxx

  32. That black bag is so cute! Hard to imagine it is so cold there with you, but you must be heading to the end of winter aren't you!

  33. That straw bag is so cute! I love how perfect it is for summer and the round style of it!

  34. That first look is my fave and I adore that black bag!

  35. I just love the blue and red together. I always forget to try these colors in my own closet, and now you've inspired me to do it! Hope you guys have a great weekend!! XO


  36. I love that round black purse in the first set! It's so different than all of the other rattan ones I've been seeing (because it's not natural colored). I really like the moto jacket with the skirt in the first set, too. The skirt in the second one is beautiful and I love it with that sweater and the beautiful red purse!


  37. I really enjoy wearing skirts in the winter too. You're right that they're not just for summer. I love both ways you styled your maxi skirts, but the first outfit is my favorite. I really love the color combination and your scarf is such a fine addition to the look.

  38. The first outfit has that subtle edgy factor that I love and the second one is such a color-blocker's favorite! I really love the layering that goes into each outfit, Mica! I can see you're having fun with it too even though I know it must be really cold over there, at least, from my tropical body temperature perspective. LOL xoxo

  39. Such cute outfits and I really love your bag too!
