Maxi Skirts and Knits: Weekday Wear Link Up!

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing two winter maxi skirt outfits for two very different days! A bright and colourful one for a day outside enjoying the winter sun and a neutral one for working from home.

What I wore:

rust maxi skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

The knit jumper and the denim jacket together may have been a little bit overkill on a warm winter day, but it was very windy! I felt nice and cosy all layered up, and although I thought I wouldn't need a scarf I did miss it when we were in the shade and the wind picked up! Definitely didn't need any more layers on the sun though, it was quite strong and warm sunshine.

I really liked the colour combo of the cobalt knit with the ochre maxi skirt, I need to wear this again! I thought the pale blue denim biker jacket and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag were great additions to the bright colours.

This maxi skirt is quite light in the wind but it's also pretty voluminous and so never flew up too much thank goodness!

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I ended up taking this denim jacket off when it warmed up! This pretty embellished knit is one I tend to very sparingly wear as it is so pretty it feels a bit too special for everyday wear, but it was overdue a wear so I got it out again! Paired it simply with the black thrifted maxi skirt and my classic dark blue denim jacket, and again the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This was such a comfortable outfit for running around a lot and also working from home most of the day.

Did the school drop off in the morning and wished I'd added a scarf, but by school pickup time I'd taken off the denim jacket as it was too warm! Took my son to his first in-person specialist appointment since iso! While restrictions had been lifted a few weeks before, some sniffles kept us away from the office and continuing to do our fortnightly session via telehealth. It was so good to be able to go into the office again! Face to face is much more entertaining for a 4 year old than a zoom call, although I'm glad we had those sessions to fall back on over Iso. The benefits of technology!

Last worn: denim jacket, embellished grey knit, black maxi skirt, black Converse, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag (above).

  1. Such beautiful outfits Mica, I do love a maxi skirt and you styled them beautifully! Hope you have a wonderful week.


  2. Looking chic and lovely as always, dear! I do love the bag, classy and very polished!


  3. I'd definitely wear the second outfit, that's very me, although I take your point about overheating with a jacket so I'd take a scarf with me to swap out :) Beautifully stylish as always, thank you for sharing your outfits! Lisa

  4. Your winters seem much like our falls. To be honest, I wouldn't mind if our winters were like yours. I'm fine with the frigid temps and snow around the holiday season, but after that, I'm over it, lol! Anyway, these outfits are really cute. I love that you decided to wear that sparkly sweater, as I think it looks very cute with the skirt and layered under the denim; it dresses it down really nicely. I love pieces like that. You can get double wear by dressing up or down. I hope your son's cold is better!


  5. The blue jacket brings this whole outfit together, the blue top and the bag are my favourite items in this picture . You look fabulous and the colours suits so well.

  6. Love the color combo of the first look and adore the denim jacket in the second. Great layering Mica and thanks for the link up!

  7. I really love the first outfit! The color combo is beautiful!

  8. Oooh, I love maxi skirts with cool jackets! That blue moto jacket is so amazing. And the color combination is fabulous!


  9. I love the details on that 2nd jumper! I am looking forward to wearing a extra layer in a few months. I miss my denim jackets!

  10. Loving the blue with mustard in that first look!

  11. Ooo....that Warehouse jumper is super nice, Mica:) And totally love the colour combo as well of the first outfit. That skirt is voluminous indeed and so perfect for any season IMO.
    Hope you and the whole fam are having a lovely Monday:)

  12. Wow, both looks are just stunning! I especially love the colour combination happening in the first look. It is incredible! Also, that necklace is perfection and really elevates the outfit even more. Love, love, love!
    the creation of beauty is art.

  13. That orange skirt is such a gorgeous colour on you and I love the way that you styled it!

  14. I like the 2nd outfit. Happy new week.

  15. We are currently in the middle of a long summer heat wave here in Maryland, so it's refreshing to hear about weather cool enough for layering! Love the cobalt blue knitwear, especially. Hope you have a good week and thanks for sharing!

  16. Cute maxi looks. You're right, I like the cobalt and ochre, too. Going to appointments in person is more entertaining to me, too! haha!

  17. Both super cute looks. Really love the color of that first skirt.

  18. A maxi skirt, a sweater and a jacket: the perfect casual look for chill days!
    Great combos Mica, both look very stylish but the 1st is my fav! :)

  19. Loving both of these skirts, especially the 1st one <3

  23. Such wonderful looks, Mica. Loving both of these jackets! They are a perfect fit on you too!

  24. I love the blues paired with ochre in your first outfit. The biker jacket is such a great alternative for a denim jacket. It looks utterly cosy for a walk on a Winter's day too! That said, I am a big fan of denim jackets too. Mine certainly is a wardrobe staple! Also, that beaded top in your second outfit is gorgeous! Hope your week went off to a good start! xxx

  25. You have always a great taste to combine the colors!
    I love both your outfits!
    Kisses, Paola.

  26. You always give such inspiration for a maxi when it's not summer Mica.
    I love them both.

  27. The color of your maxi skirt is so pretty! Makes me think of fall, which I'm looking forward to here. I really love the look with that denim jacket!


  28. I love the color combo of your first look! Some smart and cute layering for winter going on in these outfits! Hope your son is feeling better!

  29. I love that mustard skirt, it looks so perfect for autumn and winter. I wish we had cooler weather here, I miss wearing knits haha! xo

  30. I love the blue sweater and mustard skirt—I wouldn't think to pair those colors, but they look great together!

  31. I love your dark blue bag. Perfect for fall!

  32. That bright skirt is really beautiful, and it goes with so many things!

  33. I love both of these looks and would definitely wear either one! The blue sweater with the yellow maxi skirt is such a pretty combo too.

  34. I love the color combination of the first outfit! It's beautiful! And you should wear that sweater in the second outfit more often! I love how it looks on you and with your outfit!

  35. I love the denim moto jacket! It's so perfect with the maxi skirt.

  36. So cute! I really love the second outfit, Mica. The embellished top is really cute. And yes, that must be so nice going back to some face-to-face meetings! Hope you had a great Monday. :-)

    Miles of smiles,

  37. I do like your maxis and knits , practical and stylish. Glad you could have a face to face appointment. Many thanks for hosting, enjoy your week Mica.

  38. Great outfits, both of them. The first one looks warm and cozy, I imagine you found it perfect for a windy day. That skirt comes in such a nice colour. It looks very voluminous. The second styling is very cute as well. I do agree that technology has its benefits but nothing can replace face to face contact. Still, technology can be sooo helpful!

  39. Love both outfits, the second would be my most favourite. You have the most amazing collection of handbags, Mica. I love wearing maxi skirts in winter too. Enjoy your week

  40. I love maxi skirts too,
    they look good and so comfy.

    Love your style in the first photo
    you look casual yet you look so chic too
    with a necklace and perfect jacket and bag.


  41. Give me all the maxis!! Love the second styling!! xx

  42. I can imagine a 4 year old not being too concentrated when the appointment has to be done via Zoom, but better than stopping completely indeed.

  43. I'm on a mission to learn how to sew maxi skirts.. my favorite thing to wear

  44. A maxi skirt is such a great item to throw on and go- chic but easy to wear!

  45. Great outfit, the second is definitely my favourite!

  46. Love these looks and the color combinations are fabulous!

  47. Mica, that first outfit is AWESOME! I love the colours together! The second outfit is great too - you suit neutrals - but my heart belongs to the blue and ochre yellow. Wonderful.

    Thank you for hosting, I'll link up shortly.

  48. I love the mustard one, it looks perfect for autumn. But the black is a great goes with everything choice. I haven't worn a maxi in years, maybe I should give them another go x


  49. What a fun idea to do a link up! I'd love to join next time! The mustard and blue outfit is such a lovely combo! I've never thought of pairing those two colours, but I might try it out seeing how good it looked on you!

  50. I've always loved blue and yellow together, and this outfit is no exception! Cobalt and ochre pair so well together. =)

    I hope you have a fabulous week!

  51. These outfits are both so cute. I love the bright orange skirt and the second outfit looks so classy and chic. Adding the denim jacket really gives it a casual and comfy vibe. We are still quite warm here, although this morning there is a beautiful breeze. Hope you are doing well. - Amy

  52. Love the maxi skirts. I've dug mine out & they're really more comfortable to wear while I'm working from home & sitting so much. That was a really pretty top on your second picture.
    Grace & Peace, Iris

  53. I love both outfits! The top really is lovely!

    I'm glad you're able to have in-person meetings now. Many restrictions have been lifted for us as well (although cases are on the rise again).
