White Tees, Colourful Jeans, Cardigans and Printed Scarves

Two simple outfits for mornings at the park - bright denim, white tees, cosy scarves and cardigans with ankle boots and my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. Easy mum style!

What I wore:

ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

When I was unpacking my winter stuff and saw this scarf, I instantly thought of putting together this outfit. I wore it recently with a tee dress, and was excited to take the chance to wear it with the jeans! I love blue and green together and knew that the white tee would be the perfect base with the green and blue.

It was such a good outfit for a playdate in the park too, with some other parents I hadn't met before. Telling someone to look out for the green jeans works so well at a busy playground! It was nice to meet the mums and dads for the first time, and everyone commented on the jeans being a good idea as they stood out! Although the Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine Mini MAC bag is a completely different shade from the emerald green jeans I thought they went together really nicely.

It turned into a really warm day in the sun as the kids played together so I ended up taking my cardigan off. It had been a nice neutral topper for the outfit but was much too warm in the middle of the day, especially with the ankle boots and blanket scarf.

Why I wore it:

More colourful jeans! I wore my red pair this time, also a thrifted pair like the green ones above. It was a quieter day at the playground though - we have so many great parks around us so that it's often only a few kids in the parks on weekdays, and our favourite one is always quiet.

It's not the first time I've worn these red jeans with the navy cardigan, navy and red is a colour combination I keep coming back to! I know the red jeans would be perfect with this scarf too, it's a fun mix of colours and looks nice with the navy striped tee.

I did consider a red bag with this outfit but decided on the Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC instead as I thought the pants were red enough, and they already matched the scarf.

It was a colder day when I wore this outfit so I was thankful the boys didn't want to spend too much time at the park. A quick stop on the way home to pick up groceries and then a quiet afternoon at home.

How You can Wear It:

Bright denim is such a fun alternative to a classic pair of blue jeans! Still oh-so easy to wear with the skinny jeans staple of a tee, they make a really colourful outfit paired with other bright accessories or layers like a scarf, cardigan or bag.

  24. I love both of these colourful winter outfits, Mica! I really love your colourful jeans and pretty scarves. Hope you're having a great week. XXX

  25. Coloured jeans certainly get you noticed. I'm glad to see you've discovered them and are wearing them a lot, judging from their appearance on your blog. They are perfect to bring some colour to the Winter season! xxx

  26. I love how the aqua mini MAC actually does work well with the green jeans. I'd never have tried it, but you've tied in the greens and blues so well with the scarf that it all just works! And I think color-coding the parents is a great way to identify others you haven't met before :P I do love the second outfit because I think the red and blue combinations just work so well together and the bag is a beautiful contrast to the red pants. And, of course, the light and dark blues in the scarf tie it all in perfectly!

  33. I really love the pattern and colors of that first scarf--very eye-catching! I guess green jeans really are easy to keep an eye out for at the park, haha! Genius!

  34. You can't go wrong with a tee and a cozy cardigan! I adore both pairs of colorful jeans. That was smart to wear the green jeans to the park so people would be able to find you easily!
