3 Blue Dress and Pink Bag Outfits: Weekday Wear Linkup

Bit of a long post for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, sharing 3 outfits I wore recently with blue dresses and pink bags. Both things I have a lot of in my wardrobe, they pair so perfectly together!

A dress is an easy not too formal but not too casual outfit for a training day too, and that's why I wore these outfits to a training course for work.


What I wore:

Balenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet | awayfromtheblue

Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn this dress and bag together before when I hunted through my blog archive. Both much loved pieces, I was sure I'd worn them together before!

I think the casual boho peasant style of the printed dress works really nicely with the slouchy pink Balenciaga city bag. The colour combo is great too!

Unfortunately these are not the shoes I wore. I've been taking pics in the morning with the shoes I've been wearing in the office and commuting in my daggy old sneakers to try reduce the pain on my knee. A frantic realisation we were out of bread for the kids breakfasts and a dash to the shops before breakfast and then trying to make it into the city on time, I'd forgotten to pick up the bag with these shoes to change into. Thankfully I made it to the course on time but I felt a bit out of place with the sneakers!


Last worn: boho printed dress, navy tassel earrings, tan ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag.

Necklace: silver ball multi chain long necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Thankfully I remembered the bag with my shoes in it this time so I was able to wear these lovely ballet flats during the day! I really like the way all the accessories matched with the silver multi strand necklace, metallic ballet flats, and silver hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

This blue Paisley print sheath dress is a firm favourite too and was what I wore to the first day of training, as I wasn't sure about the dress code. Something I've worn for important meetings and to be dressed down for casual Friday, this dress is so versatile! I like the way the pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag went with the Paisley print too.

What I wore:

navy belted ikat print dress with statemetn silver leaf earrings and magenta rebecca minkoff edie crossbody bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | away from the blue blue

Earrings: Colette silver filigree leaf diamante statement earrings
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
Dress: Jeanswest Aztec print dress
Belt: Forever New 'orchid petal' skinny belt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!, and use code REAL for an extra 20% off!)

Why I wore it:

Another blue dress and another pink bag! This isn't even all my blue dresses or pink bags, I really do have a few! I liked the way this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag popped with the navy Ikat print dress.

Like the other blue dresses above, this is a favourite and I even took it to Europe with me last year.

Rather than wear a statement necklace I went with my Tiffany diamond necklace and the silver leaf earrings which are a perfect statement on their own, and added a little extra colour with the skinny lilac belt. This belt is an old one I rediscovered after finally finding the box of belts I'd hidden away in pregnancy a while back. Unfortunately being pleather, being stored in a box for years in the Queensland heat and humidity has not been kind to it and it actually disintegrated and snapped when I unbuckled it at the end of the day. Such a shame!

How You Can Wear It:

Blue and pink look so good together and as you can see in each of these outfits, you can pair any shade of blue with any shade of pink! Using bright accessories like these pink bags is a fun way to try out the colour combo and shows you how versatile a pink bag can be, it's easy to wear with colourful printed pieces and not just neutrals!

  7. I love blue and pink together, Mica! It is such a beautiful combination. Your second dress with the paisley print is my favorite of these because I can’t resist a paisley print! But you look so lovely in all three looks.

  18. I must say you have the greatest collection of bags. The third look is my favorite. I wish I could do ballet flats but I can not wear them as my second toe is longer then my first so if I get them bigger for this reason they flop off and if I get them smaller they stay on better but are then too tight. I can wear ballet flats with straps though. You look great in all of these looks.

  30. I love all of these dresses! They are lovely on you, Mica! I think you need to invest in some pink shoes to go with all these gorgeous pink bags! Glad to hear you finally found your belt bag, but what a bummer about the belt snapping. And that's why I always buy leather.

  44. All three dresses are super pretty! I hope you had fun learning new things during the training. It sucks that pleather deteriorates and I can so relate with the belt situation and bags that are made of PU. They just decay with the equatorial humidity here. Sigh. I hope you are well there, Mica! Have a lovely week ahead and stay safe <3 xoxo

I'm loving its boho vibe, and it's looking particularly lovely paired with the pink bag. Hope your knee will get better soon, Mica. I have an on and off bad knee too, but it's age related in my case ;-) Enjoy the rest of your week and do stay safe! xxx
