Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Maxi Skirts With Printed Scarves and Slouchy Tees, Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag

Sharing some casual outfits I wore through the week for today's Weekday Wear Linkup!

You know I love my maxi skirts, especially striped ones! It's fun to introduce another print to a striped skirt by adding a statement scarf, especially if you're wearing a basic block colour tee. Such a simple yet colourful way to dress for spring.

What I wore:

Top: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

I loved this outfit so much! The maxi skirt is a delicate pinstripe so it looks more grey in pics, but I feel in person you can see the navy pinstripe a bit better (and in the bag closeup shot). I thought it would be fun to match the stripes on the skirt with a striped scarf, and this one added a great touch of colour to the grey outfit. I really like pink and grey together, so wore my Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag to add a little more pink (and to match the blush stripes in the scarf nicely).

A simple and comfortable outfit for a quiet Friday with the kids - we went to the playground in the morning, picked up a few groceries on the way home, and then did some baking. I made a savoury pancake that I used to make for the boys when they were little. They each took one bite and decided they didn't like it anymore, ha! Oh well!

BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

A bit of an early morning photoshoot! I set my alarm a little earlier than the boys get up to have some quiet time to myself each morning - I read my bible, do a little bit of blog work and then get them up and get their breakfast before we all get dressed for the day. When I woke up on this Monday morning and saw the fog, I decided instead of relaxing to get up, get dressed, and go out to snap some photos.

I went out on the street to get a better pic of the fog, and passed one of my neighbours. Luckily, it's easy to explain why you're carting a camera and tripod around when the streets are so foggy - he was happy with my "taking pictures of the fog!" explanation and it was easy to move a little further down the street and be hidden by the fog so he couldn't see, ha! But I think I'll stick to backyard photos!

I'd planned to wear this navy tee as I knew it would match so nicely with the navy stripes in the maxi skirt, but I did have to add the denim jacket as I went out the door as it was a little chilly at 6am, even with the big bright scarf. I thought the navy and pink combo was a fun one, even though the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag doesn't match the pale pink diamonds on the scarf exactly it was a nice combination. I ended up taking the scarf and denim jacket off later in the day when out with the boys as it warmed up so nicely!


Last worn: denim jacket, pink diamond scarf, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag (above). First time I've posted the navy tee and striped maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

How You Can Wear It:

A striped maxi skirt is a great basic for mum-life, especially when paired with a plain block colour tee. For a little extra colour and interest, you can add contrasting accessories like I have here with the pink scarves and bag. Perfect for spring!

  4. I've never tried a maxi skirt but I love the way that they look and the fact that you can style them with pretty much anything. I also love the way that you've matched them with colours and patterns.

    Have a great week :)

  9. I love both the outfits for sure, and that Darren bag went so well with them! And I love fog (even though I don't like driving through them) so two thumbs up for me:D In our neighbourhood, most think that they're celebrities that they think you're taking a picture of them if you take your camera out within their vicinity so I just always take my photos in the backyard:P

    1. Yes I'm glad it cleared up before we had to drive anywhere! I'm definitely going to stick to backyard photos at home though, ha!

  10. The pink and grey in the first outfit are so pretty together! I really like that pink scarf! Your colorful scarf in the second outfit is so fun too! Hope you have a good start to your week!

  11. I love maxi skirts too and both of these outfits are so cute! I am so uncomfortable taking blog photos with other people around. I usually stick to my backyard too but it is fun to take pic's in other locations!

  24. Hehe my son is SO like that! He will love one item one day and not the next. It really does drive me bonkers because I stress over what to feed him. I almost bought the mini Darren this past summer sale from RM but didn't and now kicking myself for it. I love how it matches your scarves. I like the contrast between each one. The fog is such a pretty backdrop. Great idea on taking the opportunity to get some photos. The weather on our end cannot make up its mind! Hot one day and cold the next...ugh!

  43. You always have such cute outfits. I love the first look, so simple but so perfect. The combo of a tee and maxi is so lovely and I just love that scarf. The bag is very chic too. You look so lovely. It is great you wore this for a Friday with the boys. The story about the pancake made me smile. Kids change their mind so quickly, one day they love to eat something, the next they want to move onto something else, you just never know with them.

    The second outfit is fabulous too. I love stripes. That maxi is fantastic...and great photos with the fog in the background. I admire you for taking the photographs yourself, I rarely remember to do it. I usually just leave to to my husband to take photos when we go on our weekend trips but I was thinking of starting to photograph my outfits more often.

  53. I agree that adding a fun scarf is a great way to make the outfit more interesting. It's too bad that your boys no longer like those pancakes. And that story with your neighbor in the fog is so interesting. I know what you mean and I've had to hide my photo taking from people I know as well.
