Weekday Wear Link Up! Stripe Tee Dresses, Converse, and Pink Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two very similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, even though I wore them a week apart! Pairing striped tee dresses with Converse, pink Rebecca Minkoff bags and statement necklaces for easy working from home and school run style.

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace (new purchase)
Dress: thrifted Kmart white and navy long sleeve stripe tee dress (new purchase)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Was excited to wear this dress for the first time, and a slightly cooler spring day was the perfect opportunity! I'd just bought it at the opshop the week before for $1. The necklace was thrifted in the same trip for $2 as well and they work really nicely together. The Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was a preloved eBay find at just $29.75 so that leaves the Converse shoes as the most expensive piece in my outfit! I bought them over a decade ago though so don't remember exactly how much they cost.

The striped dress was so stretchy and comfortable for a day of working from home and doing the school run - and it looked nice and presentable for a zoom call too!

BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This navy striped tee dress is the reason I knew I had to buy the white striped tee dress! I really like this one and while it's a thicker fabric and so worn more on cooler days it's a firm favourite of mine. Really similar to the white one above too! Just a different hem and shorter sleeves, and of course a darker colour.

I accessorised this in a very similar way, with a pink Rebecca Minkoff bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody this time, and another statement necklace. Again this was a work from home outfit, as well as doing the school run and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Another comfortable outfit for sitting at my desk all day working after running around dropping the kids to school.


How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee dress is a classic and comfortable option! For days with the kids, pick one with a longer hem like the white one in the first outfit, or a dipped hem at the back like the second one. Because stripes go with everything you can add some fun statement accessories like a bright pink bag or a layered necklace.

  15. Nothing beats the comfort of a tee shirt knit! These two striped dresses look sporty and polished the ways you have styled them. Great options for spring, and they would work equally well for us, experiencing early fall weather. Have a good week and thanks for the link up!

  19. You look eighteen in that white striped dress paired with a pink bag and white converse sneakers. Such a cute styling! These light colours suit you really well. I also like the second styling with the blue striped dress, converse sneakers and burgundy bag. The statement necklace you wore with that navy blue dress is fabulous. Great styling!!!!

  39. Love your signature style always, Mica. Here you paired a long-sleeve striped dress with a long beaded necklace, a fun colorful Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag and Converse shoes and it worked! You look so put together for working from home and virtual school. I own several striped dresses like these and find them very versatile. =)

  40. I love those style dresses! I struggle getting them to fit me right though because I'm tall so they sit above my knees which I hate! I've kind of switched to maxi dresses during pregnancy and might get more for after.
