Weekday Wear Linkup! Colourful Cardigans, Scarves and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Day Bag

Today's Weekday Wear Linkup has some outfits I layered up for the end of winter. Still trying to stay a little colourful with my cardigans and scarves.

What I wore:

ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
Tee: Jeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I love blue and yellow together, this mustard cardigan gets worn with blue a lot but it's the first time I've worn it with this navy tee. I added a little extra blue with the Stella McCartney heart print scarf that was a firm favourite this winter, just like last winter.

The neutral grey skinny jeans were an easy choice with the colourful pieces and the tempete Balenciaga day bag was a great mix of blue and grey to tie it all together. Didn't need such a big bag as it was a quiet day: the school run, a little opshopping and then sports in the evening after school pickup, but it just went with my outfit so well.

Why I wore it:

More muted colours, but still a little bit of mustard and navy! I felt this outfit was very similar to one I've worn before, wearing this dark grey tee with this green printed scarf, green skinny jeans, a cardigan and a blue bag. Slightly different colours this time around with the olive jeans and navy cardigan though.

While I did like the colours in this outfit, it was much too warm! The day was warmer than expected and while I did need the scarf and cardigan on our way home from our evening appointment it was a bit too warm for most of the day. Ended up taking the scarf off while working from home after the school run.

Had to wear these daggy shoes instead of my Converse, I've been trying out a few local trails with the kids and found a nice one but it was a bit uneven which hurt my knee, so I needed these comfortable shoes to support my knee as it was hurting a little from the trail a few days before.

How You Can Wear It:

Winter layers can be colourful! Stick with a neutral like navy and then add other brighter colours like yellow or green with a cardigan or scarf.

  1. I have a bunch of scarves and I'm thinking of getting rid of most of them, I hardly wear them anymore. Last winter I maybe wore one - it seems our winters are getting warmer. Also since I work from home I don't need to wear them like I used to. But I do love seeing them on you - so many pretty ones, makes me wish for cooler weather!
    Thanks for the link up Mica!

  2. I am so glad that scarf season is arriving here! I love your outfits, Mica. That blue heart one is so great!


  3. I love the color palette of that first look! The grey jeans are the perfect canvas. Thanks for the link up!

  5. Looked at the forecast and it is getting cooler in a day or so! Yay! I am about to move some of my summer clothes into my out of season containers, just the bright skirts and my flowy pants. Ready for a change! Your grey jeans outfits are inspiration for me.

  6. I love these looks! The scarves are so pretty, I especially love that heart-print one. These looks are making me excited to wear some layers!

  7. I love the mustard yellow with the blue scarf....and that scarf is gorgeous too!

  13. Oooh, that blue and yellow go so well together, and both of these outfits look great on you!

  14. You'd know I'd be all about supporting your knee!!! I like the blue and yellow combo. Too bad about your layers being overly warm, I like the layered up look!

  15. Whenever I see you accessorizing your outfits with carves, I'm making a mental notation to wear mine more. I've got such a huge collection - almost all op-shopped - but I don't wear them nearly enough. Love both the scarves you are wearing here, and my favourite outfit is the first one, as I do love the pop of mustard from your cardigan with the symphony of blues! xxx

  16. Such beautiful scarves! I especially love the one in the first outfit, it really makes your eyes pop!


  17. I love your jeans and pants in each photo. I need to change mine up for the normal blue jeans.

  18. These outfits make me excited for scarf season to come my way! Yours are so bright and happy!

  19. The yellow cardigan and blue scarf look great together!

  20. Love the color combinations in these two outfits! Your scarves add so much, I especially like a heart motif. Hope you have a good week, and thanks for the link up!

  21. I just love how you wear scarves so much Mica!! These are wonderful looks.

  22. You always put colors together in such a fresh, unexpected way. I love the bright yellow cardigan with the dusty blue bag!

  25. I love a good pair of grey skinnies! Cute!

  26. I also love blue and yellow together. Such a stunning combo!


  27. I love the colors in the second outfit, too, Mica! But I hate when an outfit turns out to be too hot or cold for the weather. I feel like it leaves a "bad taste" in your mouth about the outfit. But still, super cute!

    Miles of smiles,

  28. You always have the best scarf + sweater combos, Mica, and this bag looks like the ideal carryall for a busy day with your family!

    I hope you are having a great week!

  43. Hello Mica, hope you're doing fantastic!

    Perfect outfit to stay comfortable when you have a busy day with many errands! I like that your proposals always include the comfort factor ! I like also the touch of mustard (one of my favorites tones to add an unexpected factor to my looks) and that Balenciaga books looks great and I like that it never goes out of style!

    PS: The cool thing about scarf and similar accessories, too hot? Just remove it :D That's great!
