Maxi Skirts and V-Neck Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

I like to stick to my outfit formulas a lot, as you'll know if you follow my blog. A plain tee and a printed maxi skirt is one formula I wear often! It's such a simple outfit for a hot day, and sticking with a plain tee means you don't have to worry about prints clashing. You don't have to restrict yourself to neutrals either, I'm wearing two bright tees with equally colourful maxi skirts below.

Why I wore it:

Wearing a lot of new pieces here! It's so fun looking at my wardrobe after Christmas and seeing all the new combinations I can come up with! This raspberry pink tee, a gift from my mum, works so nicely with this blue floral maxi skirt, another gift from my mum! While there is pink in the print of the skirt, it's a slightly different shade. I still think they work so well together though.

I kept the accessories simple, sticking with plain silver, from the silver Tiffany necklace (a Christmas gift from the boys) to the silver bracelets I never take off and the metallic silver mini MAC bag. This bag goes with everything, such a staple for me.

Had a quiet morning at home with friends - we hosted Church Online at our place for a change. It's nice having the space to be able to do things like that in our new house!


Last worn: raspberry tee, blue floral maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC bag. It's the first time I've worn the necklace as it was a Christmas present.

Why I wore it:

Another bright and colourful outfit! I got this idea from Sheila and a comment she left on a previous post where I wore this red printed maxi skirt with a white tee and mustard scarf, saying the skirt would look good with a mustard tee. There is yellow on the print of the skirt so it seems like a great pairing, but I wasn't sure about the boldness of the two pieces together. When I picked up this pale yellow tee in the Jeanswest sales after Christmas, I knew I wanted to try wearing it with this skirt!

Although the red and yellow felt bold enough I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour with this aquamarine mini MAC bag. It's a firm favourite as I like the way it works with yellow! Kept the rest of my accessories simple and neutral to let the outfit shine.

This was the perfect combination of colourful and comfortable for attending a playdate with the wonderful Sasha, our kids had such a fun time together and despite a few interruptions we got a great chat in. She's such a sweet lady and blogger and I'm so glad to have had the chance to catch up with her again! Funnily enough I wore this maxi skirt last time I met up with her too!


Last worn: pale yellow tee, starburst necklace, red printed maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC bag.

How You Can Wear It:

A plain tee and printed maxi skirt is such an easy outfit for mum life - whether hosting friends at home or running around after your kids at the playground! For something a little different you can try a brightly coloured tee to wear with the maxi skirt, picking a colour out from the print to find the perfect colour of tee.

  2. Love that first bag - it's so pretty and that metallic will go with everything! Maxi skirts are so comfortable in hot weather, I like them so much better than shorts. Hope you have a great weekend Mica!

  4. When you have a foolproof outfit formula that just works, it really makes sense to repeat it in different combinations. Both looks are effortlessly chic.

  15. I love that you make the simplest pieces look great together! You can't go wrong with flip flops either. I need to find some maxi dresses that fits my height @____@. Most are for taller women. I like the different colors that you paired together too! You're not shy with steering away from neutral colors. Thanks for sharing these looks!

    1. Yes I find midi skirts are more maxi length sometimes! The red one I did have to have taken up, but as it was a $3 opshop find I think it was worth the investment, haha!

  21. It sounds like heaven to me to be able to wear just a maxi skirt and a tee or lightweight top, especially as I got my faux fur out today. Brr! I have a hard time choosing my favourite here, as both outfits appeal to me. I'm loving the blue and raspberry of the first, but the red maxi you wore for your meet-up with the lovely Sasha is one of my favourites of yours. I'm also loving the aqua bag you're wearing with it. Hope you're having a lovely weekend, Mica! xxx

  22. you make outfits look so effortless! I have never tried maxi skirts - or dresses for that matter! Maybe when it gets warmer I will like to experiment a bit more this year!

  23. Such vibrant colors! I love the yellow and red together, and the clever way you chose a bag to really pop with the top and skirt.
    As I love skirts, I will be looking into your suggestions, especially since the prices really are reasonable!

  24. Dear Mica, this is another outfit formula that works very well for you! I love both combinations and you got the perfect tip for the 2nd combination. So wonderful you added even a colourful bag to this look!

  45. I'm loving the colorblocking fun that you went for in two outfits! The V-neck tops you're wearing are so right my alley. Matter of fact, I'm wearing one in the same style in dark grey, right now! I just love how soft the fabric is! You and your friend look super adorable. And your kiddo's top made me smile :D xoxo
