Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed Tanks, Waterfall Cardigans & Grey Pencil Skirts

Wearing some bright tanks into the office for today's Weekday Wear Linkup. The bright colours seemed so perfect for spring, and the cosy cardigans on top were needed in the cooler morning and evening commute.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
TopJeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I really liked all the colours in this outfit! This grey jersey pencil skirt might be a little too casual for some offices, but in my business casual office it works fine, especially with a cute printed top. This leaf print tank is a firm favourite and one of those pieces that looks just as good with shorts as it does with a skirt for the office! The red cardigan matched the red leaves in the print nicely, and added even more colour to the outfit.

With the navy Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag and the navy necklace matching, I decided to throw in just a little extra colour and wear my newly purchased teal earrings with this outfit. I really liked the extra touch of colour and the statement earrings worked well even with the statement necklace.


Last worn: red cardigan, navy beaded necklace, leaf print tank, grey jersey pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the earrings on the blog as they are  a recent purchase.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, just changing up the colours slightly! Again I went for a grey pencil skirt with a cosy cardigan, a navy one this time that matched the Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote nicely. I added some colour to these neutrals with the coral brushstroke striped tank and a turquoise and white beaded necklace. This necklace is another new purchase, an awesome thrift find and a nice way to introduce another colour to my outfit.

Couldn't decide what flats to wear with this so went with this camel pair that go with everything. A simple outfit for a busy day at work.


Last worn: navy cardigan, brushstroke stripe tank, grey pencil skirt, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag (above). First time I've worn the necklace on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A cosy waterfall cardigan in a plain block colour is a nice way to add comfort, warmth and extra colour to your outfit. You can keep it simple and match it to the print in your top, or add a contrasting colour to a bright top like I have in the second outfit.

  2. Really like the red cardigan paired with they grey pencil skirt, this colour combo adds sophistication. The brush stroked t-shirt is very cute and I like the injection of the turquoise colour to it. Hope you have a good week and the weather stays nice and warm

  28. Ah we too are having cool mornings and warm afternoons but for the opposite reason--moving in to fall. That long cardigan is a great way to do a pop of color. And the RM tote is so streamlined and chic and the heart is too cute. And yes you can not really go wrong with a gray pencil skirt for work.

  29. I LOVE the bright red in the first outfit - that little pop of turquoise/teal is perfect for visual interest. While I like the second outfit, it feels like a bit to much navy for me - it overwhelms you a bit. I would swap out the navy bag for a red or turquoise one. You need red shoes, Mica! Get that "shoe game" going! ;-P

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, my dear!

  31. The first outfit is definitely my favourite, I love the skirt and the pop of colour is lovely. Although the skirt might be too casual for some places it looks like a nice item that you could dress up or down x

  44. You look stunning in that first look. I really like the combo of skirt and top with that red cardigan! The pairing of pink and red tones looks so feminine and chic. I also really like the second combo. The grey skirt paired with a blue cardigan looks very elegant and the printed top is fun. Lovely outfits, both of them!
