Blue Tanks and Printed maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

While these outfits have very different colours in them, they both follow the same outfit formula of a blue block colour tank paired with a printed maxi skirt. Both of these printed skirts are such light choices for a hot summer day. And it was hot when I wore these, the week before Christmas.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

When I saw this maxi skirt I knew I'd go the matchy-matchy route and wear it with my turquoise tank right away! I was out at the movies with my mum and sister when we had a walk around the shops and saw a sale on skirts and mum offered to buy us one each for Christmas. Was the perfect thing to wear a couple of days later when we went for our annual pre-Christmas shopping trip. We hit up the outlets on the coast and even though I didn't need to buy any more Christmas presents I picked up a couple extra things and we had a great time! Even if I do regret leaving a massively reduced bag behind and not buying it 😂

The studded sandals were an attempt to make my outfit more dressed up too, as I didn't expect to be doing any shopping for me....ended up unbuckling them many times, which was a bit of a pain as they have 3 buckles each. The sales assistant at Sass and Bide was quite concerned how much time I was taking trying on a single pair of jeans - we all laughed as I explained I'd gotten out of the jeans a long time ago I was just stuck buckling up my impractical shoes. Didn't get the jeans after all of that either! 😂

After shopping we went out for dinner so I decided to swap out the regular chain strap on the Rebecca Minkoff love bag for this blingy embellished bag strap. It's a fun combination and one I wear a lot.

Why I wore it:

Needed something simple for church before Christmas. We'd had a busy week before it so I went with this super comfortable red printed maxi skirt which is so nice on a hot day. I picked the navy tank as I felt like it had been a while since I last wore it. While it is a breastfeeding tank, I have kept it around in my wardrobe as I think the neutral navy goes with everything and it's a soft bamboo fabric, it's a dream to wear!

Stuck with the grey Rebecca Minkoff love bag I wore in the first outfit, but swapped to the regular chain strap that came with it to keep things simple. After church and grocery shopping it was a quiet afternoon and then watching a Christmas movie to ease us into the holidays!

How You Can Wear It:

A plain tank is an easy pairing with a printed maxi skirt. A basic block colour tank works well either matching or contrasting. You can pick a colour out of the print to wear on top and match like I have in the first outfit, or add a contrasting colour like I have in the second outfit.

  12. I was gushing over your first maxi skirt, with its subtle but gorgeous print, and then I scrolled and saw the second skirt, which definitely made my heart beat faster. Orange and navy is such a stylish combination, and that skirt's print is absolutely fabulous! xxx

  13. Both of these outfits are so lovely. I really like the first blue styling. That blue tank top looks great paired with that printed blue maxi. That's a fab print. I also like the grey RM bag, it looks great with both outfits. The second combination of colours is very nice too. Great outfits for warm weather.
