Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Jackets, Grey Tees, Pencil Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Taking advantage of the warmer spring weather in Brisbane and just wearing some light layers to the office. I wore two of my textured jackets with basic grey tees and black pencil skirts and added some colourful scarves for a brighter Weekday Wear Linkup! Even the backdrops are colourful, I stopped by the Brisbane Arcade Spring flower show to get some pretty Instagram pics!

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist wearing all the pink accessories! This magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag really pops against a plain grey tee and black pencil skirt outfit, and I continued the pink theme on with the tassel earrings and the striped scarf. I like how the earrings matched the tassels on the scarf, and the magenta stripes compliment the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag nicely.

With all the colour and the classic tweed textured jacket, I felt this outfit was dressed up enough for a quiet day at work with few face-to-face meetings. Sometimes I have more virtual meetings than face-to-face ones, especially with the new project I'm on.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody

Scarf: Target Selena lightweight woven scarf in summer stripe
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another textured jacket - this jacquard one has a metallic thread running though it so it feels a little more 'dressy' option and worked perfectly to make the slouchy and comfy grey tunic and pencil skirt outfit more suitable for a day in the office.

The threading on the jacket looks like stripes, and since I'd had fun lately wearing striped scarves with striped maxi skirts, I thought I'd give the striped scarf and striped jacket combination a try. I really liked this outfit, even if the jacket was a little bit too warm to wear during the day when my friend and I went out for a walk at lunchtime to admire the spring blooms at the Brisbane Arcade. Just like the first outfit, I liked all the pink in this outfit too, even if the scarf and bag are different shades of pink.

How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey tee is a wardrobe staple for stay at home mum life, but can be dressed up for the office if you have a casual environment. A fun striped scarf can hide the casual nature of the tee, especially when paired with a formal textured jacket.

  20. I love both of those textured jackets, and that's a great shape on you as well. I'm always tempted to try jackets like that, but sadly they don't suit me. My favourite outfit of the two is the first one, with all the pink accessories. The perfect colour to celebrate Spring! Have a lovely week, Mica. xxx

  40. Very elegant and pretty work outfits. I really like the pink accents in the first one. It is lovely how your earrings match the tassels on your pink scarf. The jacket and skirt combo is very chic and your bag is wonderful....The second outfit is also lovely. I like the pink and the purple shades in that scarf. Another pretty styling...you always have such pretty scarves.
