Matching Bags and Scarves With Grey Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts For Spring

Enjoying wearing some of my recnt(ish!) purchases to create some casual and comfortable spring outfits. I love these striped maxi skirts I thrifted back in August and the scarves and bags add the perfect pop of colour for spring.

You might know from reading my blog I love my bright handbags, and I have shared various ways to match them to my outfits before (matching to shoes, matching tees, matching necklaces, etc). Today I'm keeping it simple and matching the accessories together by picking scarves and bags that are similar shades.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard (new purchase)
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I was hopeful that this mustard crinkle scarf would pair nicely with my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and was so pleased to see they look great together! While not the exact same shade I think they compliment each other nicely, and were a fun combo with the neutral outfit. As it was a cooler morning, I added the denim jacket to the slouchy grey tee and vertical striped maxi skirt. We had church in the morning too, which is often a little colder with the aircon so the denim jacket was a good choice. Even if I did take it off after church in the heat of the day.

Even though the bag has silver hardware, I thought the gold mouse flats went nicely with the mustard accessories - and they are such fun shoes to wear!


Last worn: denim jacket, mustard crinkle scarf, grey tunic, gold mouse flats, mustard micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the vertical striped maxi skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another simple grey tee and striped maxi skirt with some colourful accessories! This beautiful diamond print scarf has so many colours in it, but I knew I wanted to try wearing it with the equally bright neon pink mini MAC bag. I really liked the two pieces together, and they were the perfect touch with the outfit. The pinstripe maxi skirt always seems so grey in pics, even though it's a fine navy pinstripe. This paired with the darker grey v-neck tee made it a bit monochrome, so the pink was fun to break up the grey a bit!

Simple and colourful outfit for a day with the boys - we spent some time at the playground, library, and a quick visit to our old house, so a pretty busy day.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple, and looks great with a striped maxi skirt. To add some colour to the neutrals, you can go for bright and bold scarves, with matching bags to make your outfit even more colourful. Perfect for spring.

  1. It is great when the bag matches that perfectly with the bag as you managed it with both of your looks! I like both outfits and I understand that you felt good in them! And I think the first look was perfect for church and the second look for a day with your kids.

  12. I love both looks and the way you coordinated your bags and scarves. What beautiful pops of color with the gray shirts. In the second look, I have a similar skirt and a similar shirt and I never wear them together. I think I'm going to need to try that because it looks super on you. I do think your first look is my favorite.

  18. The blue/yellow combination is a winner, Mica! I love how that gorgeous yellow looks on you. I like the pink too, but the scarf's pattern doesn't show well in pictures (it's not crisply defined). I have a thing about how patterns show up in pictures, and have gotten rid of several prints due to how they photograph (is that weird? LOL). It's me, not you!

  19. It's funny because growing up it was always about matching your purse and shoes. Yet I think this idea of coordinating the scarf and purse is so much better.
    Love both of these looks Mica,

  25. I just love how you matched a yellow scarf with a yellow mustard bag in the first look. The denim jacket, t-shirt and maxi skirt are also fab choices.
    You look pretty and stylish! Lovely t-shirt and maxi skirt combo in the second outfit as well. Very pretty pink scarf and bag. The print on that scarf is really chic.
