Matching Bright Bags to Skinny Jeans With Tees and Kimonos

Taking advantage of the spring weather to wear two blue kimonos. Wearing two different brightly coloured jeans that match the bags I chose to wear too. I like being a little matchy-matchy when wearing a colourful bag. I've shared matching bags to shoesscarves and printed tees before too.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a warm spring day that quickly turned into a very hot day! I regretted picking this kimono a little, it's  a cosy cocoon style which was a bit too warm by the time we got halfway around the bike trail the boys were scooting and biking around.

I regretted the white tee choice too when we did some baking later in the afternoon. Luckily the cocoa powder stains came out in the wash!

I did like the colour combo in this outfit though, navy and green look so nice together and the little green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag complimented the green jeans nicely.

Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Sticking with the same simple outfit formula I wore above with a blue kimono, v-neck tee and bright skinny jeans. Went with red ones and picked my little red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag as well. Just like the bag and jeans above, the shades don't match exactly but do compliment each other nicely.

Wore this on a day it was predicted to rain so we headed out to an indoor play place for the kids. It didn't rain but the boys did have a lot of fun, especially when the special guest arrived. Queen Elsa was very lovely and "remembered" them from Disneyland which made their day! Something a bit different for them and they really enjoyed it.

How You Can Wear It:

A brightly coloured bag can easily be matched to something else in your outfit, like these bright skinny jeans. Wearing them with other neutral pieces like the tees or pairing with your favourite colour like these blue kimonos makes for a simple colourful outfit.

  5. I have a pair of green pants about that same shade - I usually wear them in spring only for some crazy reason. I guess the bright color feels like spring to me. Great idea to wear a kimono!

  6. I love your bag matching skills - I usually opt for basic black purses so matching is never a problem but I would love to add a couple of vibrantly coloured bags to my collection as well. And I'm also glad you got the baking-related stains out of your t-shirt, ha ha.

  16. I'm loving both of your outfits, Mica! You really are the Queen of Kimonos ;-) and you wear them so well. As I'm a big fan of green, and of green and navy in particular, your first outfit is my favourite! Enjoy the rest of your week! xxx

  17. I just love that you have bags that coordinate with your pants! The green and red (in both pants and bags) are striking colors and both outfits are great. It's so funny to see you in flip flops now. We're starting to bundle up here. So, I'll assume it's nice and warm for Christmas - does that make it hard to get into the spirit of things?

  34. I really like the kimonos, they add a little something-something to an outfit don't they? :) I like the bags matched to your jeans too.

    It's actually quite cool here, like 8 degrees or so! I couldn't imagine how warm it is in Aus haha, I wouldn't want to do anything in that sort of heat.

  36. I love a good pair of skinny jeans, I tend to stick to either black or blue though (and I have different shades of blue lol). I'm going to get out of my comfort zone next S/S and add colour to my wardrobe! Love both looks btw! ♥

  43. I'm sorry you regretted the first outfit! I can relate as sometimes the weather can surprise us. I, for one, despise going into the mall without an insulating outerwear as I often like to dress light for the outdoors and sometimes forget that buildings here are in winter season! LOL. I love the way the colored skinnies pop out visually. They're such a mood-lifter ;)
