Weekday Wear Linkup: Floral Duster Kimonos With Colourful Skinny Jeans

Slightly cheating with today's Weekday Wear Linkup post, as I only wore one of these outfits during the week - the other I wore on a Sunday when I needed to get the boys out the house. Both incredibly similar though, and definitely the kind of thing I wear through the week for the school run. Duster kimonos just work so well with colourful jeans!

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Hubby had started doing some yard work so the back yard was off limits for the kids and instead I took them out to run around along our favourite local trail. I decided at the last minute (after I'd taken these pics) to swap to my daggy walking shoes instead of my Converse and I'm glad I did as although we took their bike and scooter we left them at the side of the trail as we headed off the track a few times, and my knee needed the extra support hiking through the bush.

I really liked all the bright colours in this outfit! I wasn't sure about the navy tee with the navy floral print duster but I wanted to give it a try - I think this marle tee was the perfect one to wear with it as it wasn't too matchy-matchy, just different enough to work with the darker navy of the kimono. I matched the necklace and jeans to the print on the kimono too, picking out the tiny pink flowers in the print to wear this marble and gold necklace with my magenta Sass and Bide skinny jeans.

The Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack is my go-to bag for spending time out with the kids, fits all our water bottles and some snacks for the walk nicely!

Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit worn a few days later! Again I picked colourful jeans, Converse, a floral duster and a blue bag. The white tee again matched the print on my kimono, the white florals this time. The olive skinny jeans didn't match and I was worried that the two greens together would be too much, but I think the olive when nicely with the green of the duster and the blue leaf necklace and micro Bedford bag broke up the green nicely. I really liked this outfit!

After the school drop off we spent some time exploring the local trails again before the school pickup in the afternoon. I'm enjoying being able to get out with the kids so much in this nice weather, although I did wish a couple of times I'd worn shorts instead of jeans as it was a really warm spring day!

How You Can Wear It:

Floral dusters are a great spring layer to add to a casual jeans and tee outfit. You can use them to add extra colour or print, or match the colours in the print to the jeans and tee you wear.

  2. Lol, my photo loaded sideways! UGH! Anyway, love the bright kimonos, I can never get enough. They are perfect for Spring. Thanks for the link up Mica!

  3. Mica, I love your kimonos! Both are so beautiful. And honestly, when it comes to kimonos for me, you can style any which way and they will always look great! You seem to have a kimono collection that may rival the size of mine! I want to do some kind of kimono series! Lol. I hope you have a great week, my friend!


  4. How nice that the weather was that good! You wear kimonos so well! Have a good week!

  5. I need to pull out my duster kimonos for fall. Love both looks and thanks for the link up!

  8. Hello Mica
    I think you found the perfect formula, kimono and colorful jenas, I also really like wearing kimonos.
    I think now the safest thing is for you to play with your boys in the backyard !!

  9. Loving the kimonos! But have to say, the green one is my fave!

  10. How wonderful that you were able to head out to a trail. That sounds like a lot of fun! And those kimonos are so so gorgeous. I love the easy way they incorporate colour.
    the creation of beauty is art.

  11. You wear the kimono so well! Love the multicolor floral one, (so many mixing possibilities!), and the creative mix of greens in the second outfit. Enjoy your week, and thanks for hosting the link up.

  12. That first one is my favorite of the 2! Love the brights! We are going to take it easy next weekend: we went hiking and the boys want a break from activities, lol!

  13. You have such a lovely sense of style!

  14. Your kimonos are so pretty—you're inspiring me to try one!

  15. Love the green duster, I want more in my wardrobe as they are so versatile. Jacqui x

  16. Love both of these very classic "You" outfits, Mica! You rock a duster! I love all the colours here - no need to match as long as the colours "go"! The second outfit is my favourite, as the two dominant colours (emerald and cobalt blue) really pop against the olive jeans.

    Thank you for the link-up - I'll be there shortly!

  17. Love both outfits.. especially loving the first kimono.

  18. I love both of those kimonos! I think this is the first time I’ve seen the navy floral. Gorgeous! I recently purchased 3 kimonos. I need to get to styling them.


  19. Anything that has floral prints has my heart. It looks beautiful with tight jeans

    Have a nice day

  20. Your dusters are both so beautiful! The first one would work so well for fall here with the darker jewel tones! Hope you are having a good start to your week!

  21. You are inspiring me to wear more kimonos! Both of these outfits are fabulous. I'm so glad to hear you're having some nice weather to enjoy with the boys!

  22. I always love your kimonos Mica, you have so many pretty ones! I love the colors in the first look and also the blues and greens together in the second look.

  23. You always have the prettiest kimonos Mica. I love that you wear bright colors!!

  24. Kimonos are just magical. They can take an outfit to a whole new level. Love me some green but I have to say that first kimono is GORGY!! I saw the most beautiful burnout velvet kimono on Jess, another blogger, and I am in search of it. The kimono had a maple leaf print. So perfect for our fall. Now to find it!!!

  25. I love both, but the green kimono is my favorite! Just beautiful on you!


  26. I agree, I think the navy tee looks great with the kimono! I really like this "outfit formula" and all the fun colors. Your walk on the trail sounds super fun!

    Miles of smiles,

  27. Love your floral dusters , especially the first one with your navy tee. They are perfect for your warmer Spring days. Sounds like some fun with your boys in the trails. Many thanks for hosting Mica, enjoy your week.

  28. So great how you take the boys out in these walks all the time:) And love the colourful outfits. Those dusters are really such a great addition to the wardrobe:)

  29. This is really becoming one of your trademark formulas, isn't it? And why now, as it's such a great look. I'm loving both of your outfits but although I was originally convinced of the first one being my favourite, there is a certain something in the second one which has made me change my mind. The colour and print of that duster is just gorgeous, and together with the cobalt blues of your bag and necklace, it provides wonderful splashes of colour against the more neutral olive of your jeans and the white of your tee! xxx

  30. Dear Mica!
    I love your two floral duster komonos! They are incredibly cute and look great with skinny jeans.
    Wish you a great week!
    xoxo Nadine

  31. I am just wearing my floral duster kimono today, but it is florals on black paired with a black jeans here.

  32. I like your kimonos, shades and pattern are perfect as well as way how you style them. You look beautiful as always.

  36. I like the bright colours of the first outfit a lot. That duster kimono is so cute. I also like how you matched green tones in the second styling. You look great in both of these stylings.
