Foil Print Tees and Maxi Skirts With Balenciaga First Bag

Easy outfits for hot days with a maxi skirt and tee. I decided to get these foil print tees out again, they are a fun twist on a classic plain tee but still so wearable. And based on some of the tops I saw in stores the other week, the foil print trend is still around!

What I wore:

Tee: Jeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt

BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

When I want to buy things I think of two ways to wear them right away. I knew I wanted to wear this ochre skirt with navy, blue and orange look so good together! I thought the gold foil polka dots tied in nicely with the rich colour of the skirt too. Can't believe this tee hasn't been worn in over a year! I definitely need to wear it more!

Couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the turquoise necklace and the blue India Balenciaga first bag. I loved the way the addition of the third colour brought even more brightness to this outfit.

Only downside was that I realised while sitting at the sidelines of my son's tennis lesson that you could see the strapping of my injured knee through this skirt and it's not as opaque as I thought! Will be sure to keep that in mind for future wears!

Why I wore it:

Although I just recently wore this foil stripe tee with shorts, I picked it out to wear again as it's so fun to wear with the foil print. It was perfect with the maxi skirt for church. With the white tee and black skirt I felt a little extra colour was needed so I decided to wear these fun neon peach tassel earrings I got for Christmas. Surprisingly I haven't given them a wear yet!

The turquoise Balenciaga first bag was another bright burst of colour with this outfit, and I really liked the little additional colour touches. I wore the same shoes I've been wearing for weeks since my knee injury before the new year, my daggy old running shoes! Did cringe a little when I saw a Grandad at church wearing very similar shoes 😂

How You Can Wear It:

A foil print is a fun touch on a classic staple tee, and it's something that keeps popping up regularly in the stores. Just like a basic tee, they are so easy to wear! You can wear the tee with something plain on the bottom, like a maxi skirt, to avoid any print clash struggles.

  1. I really love that colour combo of rust and blue in the top outfit - it's quite striking, ands the little bit of gold detail is pretty great.

  8. I love the 3rd colour pops that you've added to both of these outfits - it really makes them visually so interesting (as Diana Vreeland said, "The eye has to travel" - look her up). The coral earrings are fabulous - what, no coral bag?? lol!

    I'm envious of the warmth - it's sunny here but still cold! Have a great week, my dear Mica!

  9. The colours of your first outfit are fabulous, Mica, and therefore that's my favourite. I love the spotty tee, and the matchy-matchiness provided by your bag and the tasseled necklace! xxx

  10. I love that first dotted top, it's so cute. It looks great paired with a maxi skirt. The turquoise necklace and bag are lovely accessories for this look. I also like the second pairing of a printed tee and a maxi skirt. You always look lovely.

  24. The foil patterns are so fun! And you know I LOVE the color of that first maxi skirt! I lol'd at you and Grandad wearing the same sneakers! I picked up a pair of Ryka sneakers last week, and they are pretty darn comfortable and fairly cute! Not sure if you can get Ryka shoes in Australia though...

    1. I haven't heard of the brand before and it doesn't look like they are sold here :( Such a shame, I will need more shoes other than these to help support my knee until it heals!

  25. You wear maxi skirts so effortlessly! I do not know why I don't wear them as often. The first thrifted outfit style is my favorite from this list. Super chic and just overall cozy. We're having quite the killer hot weather here. It's night time and the concrete holds on to all that afternoon heat!
