Weekday Wear Linkup - Textured Pencil Skirts and Jewel Toned Blouses For The Office

For this week's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two more office outfits, pairing some pretty jewel toned blouses with textured pencil skirts and cosy waterfall cardigans.

With the warmer spring like weather in Brisbane I was glad I could shed some of the layers and just wear these cardigans...even if I had to add tights on my second day in the office!

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace

SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Excited by the warmer weather, I went bare legged to the office. It was a little chilly in the morning still, although it did warm up nicely during the day. The cardigan kept me cosy too, this navy one is a frequently worn one over the colder months, and I'm surprised this is the first time I've worn this berry blouse with navy! I like to wear a lot of things with blue, as it's my favourite colour.

The blouse and jacquard pencil skirt were such a comfortable outfit choice, and the beaded necklace tied together the navy cardigan and skirt well. Even if I did manage to snag this necklace and had to hurriedly try repair it before the beads flew everywhere, ha! I did loose a few beads but as I lost some length knotting it back together I don't think you can really tell!

Was such a nice outfit for a busy morning at work with a big team celebration at lunch time.


Last worn: navy cardigan, berry blouse, jacquard pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the necklace on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

What's In My Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above - and I'm not sure why as they are so incredibly similar! Possibly because this skirt is longer? Or because I kept the blouse untucked? I did like the colour combo though, the red waterfall cardigan really pops with the blue peasant blouse and lace pencil skirt.

The fleece lined tights in this outfit kept me cosier in the early morning start too, and I was glad I'd worn them as it was a much colder day! Luckily I managed to avoid the rain all day.

I really want to wear this red cardigan a little bit more before the warm spring weather truly sets in in Brisbane - probably won't wear it with this skirt again though, ha!

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A cosy waterfall cardigan is a great outwear option for spring or autumn, and is easy to pop in your bag if it warms up during the day. You can go matchy-matchy like the first outfit and match the colour of the cardigan to other pieces in your outfit, or just add it as a bold pop of colour like I have in the second outfit.

  11. I like both outfits but the feelings you have for the second look are so familiar to you. It happens again and again to me when I copy a outfit I love :) How good you were able to repair the necklace of the first look!

  14. Love the textured skirts and that first look is super polished for the office. I am also loving the red cardigan, so I can see why you want to incorporate it into your wardrobe this spring. Perhaps over a fitted dress?

  22. It's gotten so warm in Perth too! It only just changed over to spring right? Haha! I think I see what you mean about the second outfit... the colours are fab but maybe the flow of the outfit? The cardi might've been a little long for the combo? Or the shirt tucked in could've helped? The pops of colour on the monochrome outfits are always fab though!

  37. I like both outfits - I think it's the untucked blouse in the second outfit that is throwing the proportions off, Mica. The extra long cardi with the longer pencil skirt needs a shorter visual top. However, I think you look great in both of them, and LOVE all your colour!

  43. Thanks for dropping by my blog Mica! Its been years and its so good to see you after so long. I've not been too active on the blog and post more frequently on instagram. But what's awesome is that we've been blogging together for so many years and back when I last visited your blog, I don't think you had any kids so it's a pleasant surprise for me to see two adorable boys. Loving your dog's photobombs too!
