Weekday Wear Link Up: Grey Tees, Blue Maxis And Blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren Messenger Bag

For today's weekday wear linkup, I'm sharing two outfits with my go-to pink and blue colour combination, taking blue maxis and adding grey tees and a blush pink bag. The first outfit is with a maxi dress and the second a maxi skirt.

What I wore:

spring layered maxi dress outfit grey tee knotted over navy dress pastel pink bag | awayfromblue

navy printed maxi dress with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue



Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: Jeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very busy Friday! I wanted something simple and comfortable to wear that morning so decided to layer up this blue maxi dress with a grey tee to dress it down a little for what I anticipated to be a quiet day with the school run. Until, running late for school, I went to zip up my son's lunch bag and realised it had broken and wouldn't zip up and so wouldn't keep his food cool. Luckily managed to find a replacement one for him to use for the day, but it then meant spending far too long walking around the local Westfield shopping centre hunting for a replacement lunchbox. Of course at halfway through the last term for the year there was not a lot of choice! Luckily I managed to find one in the end, that my son approved of when I picked him up from school. Phew!

I did like this outfit - the knotted tee looked good with the navy printed maxi dress and because the tee has a pink panel on the back I decided to wear my Rebecca Minkoff peony pink Darren bag with it, even though they are different shades of pink I think they compliment nicely. Stuck with simple silver accessories to match the hardware on the bag with the silver necklace and ballet flats.





What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit, but this time it's a grey tee with a printed blue maxi skirt. I surprisingly hadn't worn this tee and skirt together before, seems like such an obvious pairing with the neutral grey tee and the colourful floral print skirt. Again with the Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag as it matches the pink florals so nicely! And I picked another necklace with silver hardware to match the bag too. I was wearing simple but comfortable sandals (not that you can see them with the skirt caught in the breeze...).

This was another day of traipsing around the shops after school drop off - although a planned one, as it happened before the day above! Haven't been to the shops in weeks and suddenly went twice in one week! I again masked up to visit a few different stores in an effort to track down a bike for my son's Christmas. Thankfully despite the bike shortages we were able to find one, and I ticked off a few more purchases off my list. Really want to be organised in advance for Christmas this year as postage can be slow as we get closer to December!



How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is such a nice basic neutral, perfect for pairing with a printed piece in your outfit. Just like blue and grey, blue and pink go together beautifully too so a pink bag is a great way to accessorise a blue and grey outfit.

  8. ove the pairing of the maxis with the tops,Mica:) You always look so put together even when just running errands! I really must make some effort...sigh...
    And yay for finding a bike (and a lunchbox)! Man...lunchboxes breaking when you're getting ready really is the pits.
    Have a great week ahead:)

  14. Hello Mica
    I admire parents on the run to take their kids to school in the morning !! I understand that you have to dress comfortably, even when setbacks happen !! I'm not a fan of the gray color, but what I really liked about your looks was the bag!!

  15. Two great maxi skirt outfits! Think the first one is my favorite because I love the cap style sleeves! And you always add the perfect jewelry, especially loving how you layered the bracelets.

  16. I like the subtle color combination of these two outfits-and that blush pink bag is the prefect compliment! Glad you found a bike for your son in spite of the shortages. All of my holiday shopping will have to be done on line this year, so I had better get started early, too! Stay safe and have a good week, Di

  19. How cute is that pale pink bag! I love how you knotted your tee in the first outfit, and the darker grey tee with the blue floral maxi skirt is the perfect pairing! I do hope no emergencies arise in the week ahead so that there's no need to go out shopping again! xxx

  32. I like your trick of knotting your tee at the waist, Mica! These are both very cute outfits - you know I love your maxi skirt collection. I've also started my Christmas shopping...and I'm even considering putting up my Christmas decorations this year (something I haven't done in 10 years due to a very mischievous kitty). Thank you so much for the link-up!

    1. I'm so glad you put your decorations up, I have been enjoying the posts! :)

      And being petite if I didn't knot the tees they'd be too long to wear over dresses, haha!

  33. How great that you were able to check some Christmas gifts off your list, Mica! I started my gift shopping last month, but I am nowhere near finished. =D I love your blush pink bag here too, it goes with everything!

    I hope you are having a great week!

  38. Dear Mica, when such things happen like with the lunch-bag of your son one has often indeed much more effort for a replacement then expected ... But I like both of your looks and I'm not surprised that you liked the first look and also the other look, that was a surprising new pairing is beautiful.

  39. The bag colour is subtle enough that it goes with everything and big enough that if fits your phone and wallet. I love it! Also, I didn't know that there was a bike shortage going on, never thought something like this would happen

    Thanks for sharing

  45. Both really cute outfits - maxi skirts always a favorite with me.

    Bike shopping sure brings back memories. My two oldest sons are only 13 months apart, so it was two bikes that year (a very long time ago). Can't remember how we hid them, but my hubby would never consider an 'early Christmas gift' - and it did make for a nice surprise. I'm sure your son will be delighted.
