Weekday Wear Linkup: Feather Print Scarves & Pencil Skirts For Winter Office Wear

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm wearing two similar pencil skirt outfits for work with some fun feather detail scarves. One is a feather print scarf and the other is embroidered feathers. Both are wonderfully cosy!

What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
Scarf: Nali feather print pashmina scarf
Jumper: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold day when I wore this! I know I've worn this pencil skirt recently but I really wanted to wear it again, this time with a cosy white knit that's originally from my mums wardrobe. Even the ribbed jumper wasn't enough to keep me warm though, the taupe feather print scarf was a must have for the cold morning. So were the ankle boots!

With all of the neutrals I went with my pink tassel earrings to add a little more colour, even though it's a brighter pink than the blush of the skirt I think it worked nicely.

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt:  Jeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I felt a bit flustered this morning! The weather was much warmer, which meant me ditching the knit I'd planned to wear the night before, and just wearing a grey tee under my navy coat. I still wanted to wear my pretty feather embroidered scarf though, and I thought the darker grey worked nicely with the lighter grey of the tee.

With having to change my outfit at the last minute because of the weather, and already running a little late, I had a very rushed start to the day, especially after taking the first few photos with my bag facing backwards, and having to retake them again so you could actually see the detail on the Mulberry bayswater bag! Thankfully the day improved from there.

Last worn: navy mac, grey v-neck tee, feather embroidered scarf, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Mulberry Bayswater (above).

Other ways to wearnavy mac and stripes, grey v-neck tee and shorts, feather embroidered scarf and printed dress, black pencil skirt over a dress, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Mulberry Bayswater and chambray dress.

How You Can Wear It:

A simple neutral top works well with a pencil skirt in the office. You can wear a knit if it's colder or a casual tee when it warms up a little. You can add a scarf for some extra interest and warmth in your daily commute too, and a printed or embroidered one is a great idea if your top is a basic neutral.

  6. Ooh, I love feather prints! These are great scarves. I am just about ready for scarf weather over here!


  7. Feathers are my second favorite print, right after stars.

  10. You always impress me with how you wear scarves on a regular basis, Mica!!
    I love both outfits equally.

  11. Those feathered scarves are great, Mica:) I agree with the comment awesome how you always incorporate a scarf in your outfit. It's such a practical item to have for sure. And love that blue Jeanswest jacket with the Mulberry bag. Great colour combo!

  12. I like the white and beige outfit and that's such a pretty satchel type bag. Would be great for work.

  13. Hi Mica
    I finally participating in your link up!!
    I love your bag it's a modern woman worker woman!!
    I prefer the first look!!

  14. Oh my gosh, I'm glad to know it's not just me who has to re-take photos due to some silly error on my part. I've totally had my bag facing backwards, necklace twisted, shirt buttoned name it! You'd think I'd catch these things before photos by now! LOL! Well, you still managed to look polished and put together so I'm glad your day turned around!

  15. Loving the little pops of colour in your neutral outfits! I hear you on the photo rushing... some days I don't even get to take a photo and it's only when it's dark I realise I've forgotten... sigh! You look lovely in all these work outfits xx

  16. What a beautiful bag! I really like that first look and again adding the scarves just make the outfits so complete. I am going to step up my game this fall: have lots of scarves I should wear more!

  17. I love your looks! The bag is gorgeous! My first time linking up with your blog today. Somehow my picture is not showing up...

  18. You look cozy warm and professional at the same time!

  19. How on earth do you manage to make such a blah colour as beige look so sunny and warm on you, Mica? You are magic! I love that you themed your post with feather-printed scarves - it's so specific, but both outfits work so well.

    Have a great week, my dear!

  20. Oh I love both of these tone on tone looks. Subtle but still fashion forward so perfect for the more low key professional office environment. Does it get super cold there? In winter in NY it get really cold with the polar vortex. This looks more like late fall weather gear,

  21. Such chic outfits! The pink looks great paired with the camel and brown tones, such a great color choice! Happy Monday!



  22. I'm loving both your cozy outfits, with a slight preference for the first one, although I do love the blue scarf the most. You see, I'm already making my own mix ;-) That bag is such a gorgeous colour! Have a great week, Mica! xxx

  23. The longer navy jacket is my favourite. I love also Mulberry, I don't have a Bayswater, but a great vintage satchel from my mum that I love. FInally back after a while, have a lovely week, Mica. x

  24. I love both of these outfits with pencil skirts! The polka dot skirt is really pretty and I love how cozy that outfit is. This has me wishing for colder weather. I hope you have a great week Mica!

  25. I love the color scheme of your first outfit! It is different than the main colors and you totally look ready for autumn! The second outfit looks super comfy. I wish the weather here was cool enough to rock cardigans!

  26. That's such a chic bag dear! Love the classic style, super versatile.

  27. That first outfit with all the different shades of tan is beautiful! I love how you added different textures and fabrics to add interest. And your bag is just gorgeous! I love that classic Mulberry bag!

  28. Love that you're bringing back the Mulberry Bayswater—it's such a classic!

  29. I really like that polka dot pencil skirt. It's so cute!

  30. You really do have such a fabulous collection of scarves and bags, Mica! Both outfits look cosy and stylish for the office and the scarves are lovely additions to your outfits. Are you going to the Ekka this year? We still haven't been as a family yet as at least one of us is usually unwell at this time of year due to the infamous Ekka winds! Haha! Hope you have fun, if you go! Have a wonderful week, Mica! :) XXX

  31. The polka dot skirt is perfect! And the way you styled it is very elegant! Great look!

  32. You look wonderfully cozy and cute! I've always loved your scarf collection!


  33. I love both of your scarves! I have quite a collection of some too, but I haven't worn them in a long time, maybe it's the warmish weather that's probably stopped me from wearing them at the moment. Love your bag also, it's so pretty!

  34. You may have been rushed, but you still look cute! I love the embroidered feather detail on the scarf.

  35. That Mulberry bag is gorgeous. The details are so pretty. I like both outfits you styled it with. The first one is very chic with that trench coat, and the second one is just as pretty and stylish. That indigo jacket looks great paired with greyish tones. That scarf is so pretty btw! You look lovely in both outfits. I know how being late in the morning can make the day feel a bit hectic, but all is well that ends well.

  36. I'm loving these chic neutral looks, Mica!

    Hope you are having a great week so far!

  37. That Mulberry bag just stole my heart! Looks like the perfect bag for work and everyday life, but so chic and stylish at the same time!

  42. Spectacular bag Mica ! There is a similar Mulberry one in my consignment store for a bit over 100 USD and I've been eyeing it...

  43. I love feather print items. It's such a pretty print. And I really like the way you added a bit of color with your pink earrings to the first outfit.

    Both outfits are lovely. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
