3 Navy Tees And Bright Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up

Trying to keep life as normal as possible, we still have the Weekday Wear Link up this week! I won't post again until Friday though, I'm skipping Wednesday's post.

Recently I took advantage of some of the cooler, slightly more autumn like weather in Brisbane to wear some of my colourful skinny jeans. Jeans are a mum staple and while I'm trying to stay away from the blue jeans rut I do love a bright pair of jeans to mix it up a little! Bright jeans are perfect for spring, or a little extra colour on a wet autumn day when you're on a training course which is when I wore these.

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Cassandra jacquard jacket
Necklace: thrifted Equip turquoise cream multi strand bead necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate Jeans in magenta (new purchase)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

When I saw these magenta jeans I knew I'd be wearing them with all the blue in my wardrobe! I have a magenta bag I love so it was a no brainier when I saw these jeans on eBay. Already a bargain price, I ended up getting them for free. I tried to sum up the very long story in my shopping haul post.

Although the magenta jeans are pretty bright the neutral cream and metallic jacquard jacket balanced them out nicely I thought, and so I added more colour with other accessories. I really like pink and purple and blue together so this big purple Balenciaga work bag was an obvious choice, and I added the turquoise beaded statement necklace for something a little different.

This necklace has had a bit of a history, with it falling apart when my son grabbed onto it at dinner one day. I've repaired it and it was hanging together okay, but when trying to grab my umbrella out my bag and unwrap it the hook got caught on the necklace and there was no coming back from that! It was $3 at the opshop and I did get 4 wears from it so not too bad, but still disappointing!


Last worn: jacquard blazer, turquoise beaded necklace, navy tank, purple Balenciaga work bag, silver ballet flats. It's the first time I've worn the jeans on the blog as they are a recent purchase.

What I wore:

Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Jeans:  Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Another classic go to of mine - red and blue! I thought this navy tee was a good choice with these burgundy jeans. I bought these jeans back at the start of the year when Jeanswest was possibly closing down and I had to get myself a pair of their perfectly fitting jeans, in case it was my last pair! Thankfully the chain is staying around, although they have closed a lot of stores. I was pleased to give these jeans another wear with the cooler weather.

Again I added a bright Balenciaga bag for a little extra colour. With the black blazer and ballet flats I thought the turquoise Balenciaga first bag was a fun pop of colour, and it works so well with the navy and burgundy.


Last worn: Zara blazer, navy statement necklace, navy marle tee, burgundy skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Balenciaga blue India first bag.

Other ways to wearZara blazer and skirt, navy marle tee over a maxi dress, burgundy skinny jeans and kimono, black ballet flats and midi dress, Balenciaga blue India first bag and pencil skirt.

Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Blue and green is a combination I've only recently been trying, as I've slowly been adding green to my wardrobe over the past few years. These thrifted green jeans are getting a lot more wear than I expected, this is their 18th wear and I've only owned them 19th months. Since I don't wear jeans over summer that's a pretty good repeat rate!

Again I dressed up the casual jeans and tee outfit a bit with a statement necklace (this crystal one always gets compliments) and a boucle blazer. I thought the silver ballet flats worked well with the crystal in the necklace and the silver hardware on the Balenciaga day bag.


Last worn: boucle blazer, crystal statement necklace, navy tee, green skinny jeans, silver ballet flats (above), Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Other ways to wearboucle blazer and pencil skirt, navy tee and printed shorts, green skinny jeans layered up with scarf and cardigan, silver ballet flats and printed jeans, Balenciaga tempete day bag and wrap dress.

How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a staple that can easily be dressed up with a blazer. Instead of sticking with classic blue denim, you can try a bright pair of jeans to add even more interest and bring more colour to your day.

  3. Mica, I love all of these colored jeans and your color combinations are all so fun! The green pants are my absolute favorite. Just an FYI, I have been unable to add links on any parties that use “Linky Tools”. I think it is something on my computer that is blocking it but I can’t figure out how to fix it. Once I do, I will start adding posts to link parties again.

  18. I adore coloured jeans, and these are three great outfits to highlight them. Sorry to hear that your necklace broke - again! That really is one of the nice things about op-shop purchases - you don't feel too bad if they break/tear/wear out quickly.

  39. If I wear jeans at all, it is a coloured pair, and I currently own a green and red pair. I really your magenta pair, what a gorgeous colour it is, and it really does work very well with the navy tee. I think that outfit is my favourite of the three! Trying to keep life as normal as possible is the only thing we can do for our sanity! Do take care and stay safe, Mica! xxx

  40. Recently, I purchased quite a few pairs of colored jeans so I could change things up, and though I do love my blue jeans, it's so much fun adding the color in your pants, or even just coordinating with them.

  52. Oh yes mixing it up with jeans in bright colors really helps to break the blue jean rut. I love all of these looks and the mixing and matching of colors. And I too have done that with a necklace! That poor necklace seemed to have its fate sealed. And WOW what you mentioned on my blog. That is the difference with this virus. If someone had the flue and went to a dinner party they would not have infected every single person.
