Spring: Kimonos and Skinny Jeans With Space Dye Tops And Green Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip Bag

Two different skinny jeans and kimonos outfits for two very different days! I'm enjoying the warmer spring weather as I get to wear my kimonos again after passing over them all winter.

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

This gorgeous green duster kimono was a piece I picked up in the Jeanswest sale back in August. I've been making more of an effort to wear green recently and found out I quite like it, so when I saw this released I knew I was going to snap it up on sale. Even if I did have to visit two stores before I found it, ha! Thought it was the perfect topper for my neutral skinny jeans and tee outfit, and the little emerald green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag compliments it nicely.

I did consider wearing a green statement necklace with this but decided it might be a little too much green! I went with this recently thrifted blue beaded necklace, which matched my navy tassel earrings. The space dye tee was thrifted at the same time too, a great wardrobe basic that still had the tags attached.

Wore this for a relaxed Saturday with a big walk for the dogs, swim lessons and attending a local fashion show. The theme was colours for spring so I felt this green floral kimono was the perfect topper. Was a nice lightweight layer for a windy day, as you can tell from the pics!


Last worn: tassel earrings, blue beaded necklace, space dye tee, black skinny jeans, ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip. First time I've shared the kimono on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearspace dye tee and red jeans, black skinny jeans and knitted jumper, ballet flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip and matching necklace.

Perfect for pregnancyballet flats in second trimester.

Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans:  Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In complete contrast to the outfit above, this is a lot darker and not as colourful (even though I'm wearing the same green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag) and a lot cosier! It was also not as relaxing of a day, ha!

It was a really cold morning so I figured I'd better get this knitted poncho / kimono out again to keep me warm at the playground with the kids. I ended up regretting this though when the day heated up, and in the middle of running errands I left it in the car, just too hot!

I love this peplum space dye tee and I thought the effect on it was subtle enough that it looked nice with the print on the kimono. I really liked the outfit, even if I didn't wear the knitted poncho for long! The skinny jeans and Converse were good for all the running around we did. I had a few errands to run and places to visit, and some roadworks meant changing my plans a little with the diversions so I was a bit flustered all morning! As you can see by the setting sun in the pic, didn't even get to take my usual outfit photo in the morning. One of those crazy busy days.

How You Can Wear It:

A kimono is the perfect topper for those in-between seasons! You can keep it light and airy with a viscose fabric one, or be a little cosier in the colder mornings and evenings with something knitted. A kimono is an easy layer to take off if needed when the weather changes.

  15. Hi! Popping in to your blog after you were kind enough to stop by mine. Aren't you the cutest! Love the kimonos. Aren't they just the perfect wrap. I live in far west Texas in the U.S. where temps are terribly hot for much of the year. But with the AC blowing full blast, I am always cold. Kimono to the rescue! I scrolled through some of your posts. You have a great collection of bags, too. One of my fav looks was a gray and red skirt outfit. Very professional and crisp!

  17. Mica, that emerald green is a stunning colour on you! I love that you threw in the blue beads in the first outfit (blue shoes would be awesome!), and I kind of want a blue bag instead of the green one, as it kind of disappears against the kimono.

    The second outfit is a fun casual look - those thick ponchos can be hot!

    1. Yes I think a different bag would have worked better! Despite my love of blue I don't have any blue shoes - a gap in my wardrobe!

  19. Oh my, that green kimono is delicious. It looks gorgeous on you too. There's really no competition this time: your first outfit is my favourite. Oh well, I am a bit partial to green :-) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend Mica! xxx

  20. You make both outfits look beautiful hun! I'm partial to bold pops of color so I adore that green kimono. Certainly a must-have

  21. These are so cute, Mica. That green kimono is just gorgeous and you look lovely in that color. We are starting the big cool down as we head into fall and winter, so my layers will be heavier. I have a few darker colored kimonos that I like to layer over heavy sweaters and turtlenecks. Hope you are having a great weekend. - Amy

  23. I am so in love with your kimono!! It is great how they are lightweight and big plus that you have one that matches your bag - the same shade too. You always find the best deals for your outfits, hehe. You shop smart! The poncho looks nice too. I need to find some new ones.

  26. The pretty green floral kimono matches your green bag perfectly! I don't have a lot of green in my closet other than olive. I also love that peplum tee--tee shirts that have a little something different/special are my favorite kinds of tees.

  28. LOL! You are SO funny with your bags...fondling and cooing over the gorgeous mini you'd ordered. I can see that each and every one of them is a labor of love and I don't blame you. They're a huge part of your outfits and I love that you can pick any bag and style 30 outfits around it. I have one bag that I love that much (it's a cheapie but such a pretty combination of colors). I think you've inspired me to do an outfit around it now. I can't believe how well your new bag goes with that kimono! I'll bet that bag will go with lots of colors you wouldn't expect, though, since it has strong blue overtones. I really love the poncho in the second one. I'm such a poncho person, but I really need to pick up some kimonos now for spring. You do such an amazing job with your thrift purchases. I really need to visit our thrift shops more! The doggies are so cute. I love that they're so interested in your business (mine are too). I know the black and white one is the neighbors'...is the other little guy yours?
