Weekday Wear Link Up: Pink Tees and Blue Printed Maxi Skirts with Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sharing two similar casual outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, that follow the same basic outfit formula but look very different. I like pink and blue together, so on some stay at home mum days I paired two different pink tees with printed blue maxi skirts and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

I share a lot of workwear looks for the linkup, but I only work part time so aside from the two days I'm in the office during the week I'm pretty casually dressed!

Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Decided to get pics of this lovely outfit while we were out by the bayside - unfortunately the tide was out so it's not as pretty as I thought it would turn out, haha! I had one on one time with my son and while we did have to get groceries on the way back home, we spent the morning playing by the sea and having a special morning tea just the two of us. By the time the tide had rolled in, my outfit was covered in cake, apple juice and sand so I wasn't going to try repeat the photos! 😂

This raspberry pink tee works so well with the navy stripe maxi skirt - I feel I haven't given this skirt much attention lately, it's a great basic piece and pairs so well with many colours. This raspberry tee was a Christmas gift from my mum and works well with all of the blue I have in my wardrobe! Matched the navy stripes with the navy and gold necklace and the navy and pink Havaianas. I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was perfect as I didn't take the baby bag. I carried the wipes, hand sanitiser and both our water bottles in it to save having to bring the baby bag along too.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above - pink tee, printed blue maxi skirt, but a lot brighter with the hot pink frill sleeve tee and the bright blue floral maxi skirt. I really liked this outfit - it was a bit of a bold pairing but it made me smile all day! I added the purple crescent necklace for a little extra colour but I'll be honest the pink tee is so bold you barely notice it!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull as I had a busy day ahead, including taking advantage of some rare kid-free time in the afternoon to finally go to the optician and discover that I did need new glasses (I use glasses for working at the computer). Turned into a very expensive day!

How You Can Wear It:

A blue printed maxi skirt looks great worn with a simple basic tee. You don't have to stick to neutrals though! You can pick a soft pink, or even a bold bright pink, for something a little different that's still just as comfortable. Pink and blue are a great combination in any shades!

  5. That Neverfull looks BRAND NEW! Well done taking such good care of it! I love the checker pattern myself, had a speedy bandolier for years in the brown - would have loved the white but i'm not confident of my ability to keep it as nice as yours!

  8. If you live that close to the beach, why aren't you there all the time?!? I think I'd live there. Maybe you just get used to it. I'm SO relieved that you told me you only work 2 days a week! I had no idea how in the world you fit in so many activities with the boys and shopping and work and photos every day. I love that your Mom picks up such great pieces for you as gifts - obviously she knows your fashion sense very well because she does great! I love both of the Tee and skirt combinations but I'd really love to see a closeup of the navy and pink thongs!

    Thank you so much for another linkup!

    1. haha yes 3 days a week (1 working from home, 2 in the office) is as much as I can handle with two kids, haha! :) We really should be at the beach more often but every time we plan to go there's something in the water and we can't!

  10. How wonderful to get out to the beach to spend some quality time! The beach is one of my favorite places to go to just getaway and relax with the wonderful breeze and calming sound of the waves crashing.

  26. It's amazing that how these outfits, even if they are built along the same formula, are totally different due to the slightly different hues. I love pink and blue together, so both get my approval, but for some reason the first outfit resonates the most with me. The shade of raspberry pink of your tee is especially delightful! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, Mica! xxx

  44. I usually wear a ton of maxi skirts and dresses to the office in the summer- great coverage for chilly AC-cooled buildings, but breezy enough for outside, too!

  47. Got to love the one on one time with the kiddos. My daughter had some of that this weekend. While my husband works. We cuddled on the couch and watch frozen 2. Then we played with her toys.

  49. Great neutral bag. And two cute outfits. You are right, they have the same ingredients but look nothing alike. I need to wear my maxis more often. Maybe this will be the spring and summer of the maxi for me!
