Weekday Wear Link Up: Tee Dresses and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford Bag

I've found an outfit uniform for the rare times I have to leave my house to get the essentials, and I'm sticking to it! One pair of shoes that never go in the house, a bag that is also outdoor use only and not touched otherwise, no accessories other than my usual bracelets that never come off, and a dress so that when I get home I can just throw it in the wash. Plus it feels nice to dress up a little for the rare occasions I do get out the house!

Luckily I have a few dresses to wear so it won't get too boring on the blog...

What I wore:

ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This tee dress is a favourite and was on frequent repeat when I first got it. As my son got older though I realised that maybe anything shorter than a maxi was a bit of a struggle to wear around kids, and it hasn't gotten a lot of wear recently. I last wore it on an anniversary weekend away with my husband, last year! It always makes me smile when I wear it so should definitely be worn more - even if I need to keep it to days like this where I'm not out with the kids!

I headed out early, as I had to go to the doctors, get pet food for the dogs and get groceries. I figured it was best to do everything at once to minimise the amount of time I was out! Thankful that hubby is working from home too so I can leave the kids with him.

I really liked the little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag with the colours in the print of the dress. This bag just happened to be the one I'd worn out a lot as I was frequently wearing it as the newest addition to my handbag collection, and it as things began to change I realise it didn't make sense to keep changing bags as often as I usually do, to avoid spreading germs around.

Story Time: My Coach Wallet Broke!




A bit of a diversion from coronavirus, sharing the story of what happened when my coach wallet broke last year, and when going into the store to get things fixed was still a possibility. All the Coach stores in Australia are now closed.

BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Exactly the same outfit as the one above with a small modification - this dress is striped instead of a floral print 😂

Wore this to go grocery shopping, just 7 days after the outing above, but things had changed so much! There was a limit on the number of people allowed in store, there were big plexiglass screens around the cashiers, and I discovered that it's not possible to both load groceries out of the trolley onto the belt and pack them into bags at the other end of the checkout at the same time, since the cashiers aren't packing bags any more. I think I'll get better at it as time goes by, although I'm kind of hoping I don't have to get used to it for too long!


Last worn: striped tee dress, New Balance sneakers (above), Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford (above).

How You Can Wear It: 

A tee dress is such a comfortable, easy outfit and perfect for early autumn days like these when it's not too cold. For a sporty look (or if you have a knee injury like I do!) you can wear a pair of sneakers. Makes an even more comfortable outfit!

  1. Tee dresses make such easy, comfortable yet stylish outfits, Mica! I really love the print on the first dress. So pretty! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead. Take care. Thanks for the linkup! :) XXX

  2. I love that striped t-shirt dress! That is such a stunning and versatile piece. I also only recently started to keep my work sneakers out of the house. Though I don't really wear shoes indoors, I still bring them inside and wear them a little before taking them off, and when it comes to my work shoes, I stupidly didn't think twice about it. I've changed things up now but it's scary to think I could have been bringing who knows what into the house beforehand.

  16. I love both dresses equally because of completely different reasons. That first dress, the pattern is bold and beautiful on you. You should wear it more often!!! The second dress is so casual but also put together and your purse really pops. Love these looks so much. Happy Monday.

    When I go out, I also wear comfortable clothes, it's usually a sweat and jeans, zero accessories!

  29. It's crazy that we have a new normal but I am glad that people are working together to get out of this situation sooner than later. I love the idea of having one outdoor outfit especially since we aren't going out anywhere anytime soon. I love the print on your dress and the color is very cheerful that it's hard not to smile looking at it. I also stopped bringing my bags out and just carry my license/card when going anywhere. Less to deal with when coming back home. Anyway, I hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday!

  30. It's wild because I bet a lot of the changes are going to be around for a long time. It's like how 911 changed flying. Not that I like it, but people have so much fear right now, which is sad.
    I love a dress because they are so easy. In fact, that's what I've been buying lately.

  32. I love both of these dresses! We had a taste of warm weather again today and I'm hoping I can pull some of my spring dresses out soon! Grocery shopping is pretty bizarre here too. Only 2 gallons of milk at some stores and not much choice on brands for some items. We are trying to go 2 weeks between shopping so it's hard to get enough sometimes.

  33. In my opinion, this simple tee dress that you wear is also comfortable to wear.

    In my country many women wear it too because the climate in my country is tropical.
