2 Ways To Wear Kmart Amber Tiered Midi Dress | Weekday Wear Link Up

Another new purchase from Kmart! This dress was a delayed impulse buy. I'd spotted it on the way out of Kmart with my sister after some birthday present shopping. I kept thinking about it so next time I put in a Kmart order with some things for the boys I added this dress too, as well as a marigold top I've already shared. For the start of spring it works so well with denim jackets!

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this scarf with the dress the first time I wore it, the blue heart print works so well with the amber of the dress. It turned into such a warm day and I didn't need both the denim jacket and scarf after school drop off, but since I'd forgotten mozzie repellent for our little walk around our fave trail I decided to keep the jacket on and keep my arms safe from bites! Did end up taking off both the denim jacket and scarf for school pickup though.

As we spent most of the day out on the trail I just used the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack as my bag all day. It's a great bag for holding water bottles and snacks for out on the trail. It popped beautifully with the bright blue against the orange dress too.

Wardrobe Room Tour & Handbag Storage:

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, despite the squinting from the sun 😂 Wore this for Father's Day as I was so eager to wear this dress again quite quickly! Stuck with the denim jacket topper, although picked a darker blue one this time, and I really liked this combination. As it was a warmer day I went with the tassel necklace instead of a scarf, and as there were no extra long walks required I picked Converse instead of my walking shoes. I loved the way Converse looks with this dress, I need to wear it again with Converse in the future!

Again I went with a blue bag with this, my little sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC the boys got me for Mother's Day. Did consider going matchy-matchy with a turquoise bag to match the tassel necklace, but I really liked this greyish blue against the orange dress.

How You Can Wear It:

A bright tiered midi dress is perfect for spring, especially in orange! It's easily layered with a denim jacket - and blue bags are a great accessory choice!

  21. The colour of your Kmart midi dress is gorgeous, and I'm loving the tiered look as well. I'm surprised you resisted it at first, but glad that you relented in the end. I'm sure it will become a Spring and Summer staple. It looks absolutely amazing combined with denim and blue. What a great find! xxx

    Thank you so much for the link-up!

  27. Great outfits as always, Mica:) That Kmart wish we have Kmart here! Really loving your colour combos:)

  28. It goes to show you're going to get a lot of wear from that dress Mica!! The color is so fabulous.

  29. Pretty color in that dress. Thought it was a skirt until I read the title of the post. Kind of has a pioneer feel that I love.
    So funny how KMart is no longer here in the U.S. but it is thriving there in Australia. You find the cutest things there.

  30. Love the amber dress, so glad you ordered it even after having passed it up in the store! I think it will be a great piece to transition into the summer!

  34. Such a cute dress. I have a dress like this from years ago and I can't seem to get back in to this trend again.

  35. I love these outfits, Mica! Such a cute dress. I think you did it right... When you wait to purchase an item and can't stop thinking about it, then you know you're really gonna love and wear it! But of course, then you always run the risk that it'll no longer be available by the time you go back... It's a gamble! But that's the fun. :-)
    Hope your week is off to a great start!

    Miles of smiles,

  47. Love the dress. I'm all in favor of dresses and skirts. I find them more comfortable than jeans.

    Thoroughly enjoyed your closet tour. Great organization. LOVE your handbag storage.

  48. I love the way you've styled the dress in both looks! What I love is that they both exude different vibes, as the the first one has a hint of edginess with the leather jacket and the second is more boho casual. Great styling and perfect example of how a dress like this can be so versatile!


  49. I am a sucker for this beautiful Fall shade. I love the tiers and notice they are making dresses with these more now. Love the color combination, very unexpected and pretty!
