Weekday Wear Link Up : Striped Tees, Maxi Skirts and Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup it's a simple staple mum outfit formula! Striped tees and maxi skirts. The simple stripes look so good with the block colour maxi skirts. I accessorised with my Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag that I recently took out my wardrobe for a spin, realised it needs to be worn more!

What I wore:

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

Wore this a few weeks ago to participate in the Ooshie swap day. The boys wanted a couple more Ooshies to play with, as we had already completed our collection, and I wanted to give away the piles of extra ones we had! The swap day was done slightly differently this year to be COVID safe, but it was less hectic than last year as a result so we enjoyed it! I'm just glad the Ooshie madness is over now.

It was good to get out with the kids - we've been avoiding crowded places with them and sticking with parks and trails instead, but they enjoyed getting out to the shops and weren't too upset we had to run a few errands after the swap day!

I like navy with this ochre maxi skirt, so this navy stripe tee seemed like a good pairing, and with the gold hardware on the Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag I picked my gold sandals to wear, as we didn't have to walk very far so it wouldn't put a lot of pressure on my knee injury. I really liked the way the brownish-purple bag went with the ochre maxi skirt too.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit formula above so much, I repeated it! This time with a grey striped tee and a navy maxi skirt. Again I think the Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag went well with this and it was the perfect size to hold our water bottles when my youngest son and I went for a little walk after school drop off.

It was a little windy so perhaps this maxi skirt with the slits up the sides wasn't the best choice, but it was definitely nice and comfortable!

How You Can Wear It:


You can't beat a striped tee as a wardrobe staple! It goes with everything and paired with a block colour maxi skirt is a good choice for a hot spring day.



What I Bought In October And How I've Worn It:


I only bought two things this month so thought I'd add them onto this post rather than giving them a post of their own:


I needed new shoes to support my knee (my old running shoes were literally falling apart and looked really ugly, especially for shoes I've been having to wear so much). I ended up finding these on sale at the Iconic for just $88 and took the leap, cautiously trying them out on carpet for a while before I decided to keep them. As they were a purchase for my knee and not something I'd ever have bought otherwise, I'm not going to include them in my budget spend at the end of the year. And I'm really hoping they don't become a permanent fixture here, I'm doing what I can to strengthen my knee at home so I can return to normal activities and normal shoe choices for summer - but the physio did warn this  injury could take a year to heal.

The dress was, like the last Kmart dress I bought, a total impulse buy! I was desperately hunting for a bike we had promised to buy for Christmas, with the bike shortage in Australia making that tricky. Once I'd managed to find the bike at Kmart I saw a rack of new dresses about to be put out on the sale floor and this pink dress called to me! Like the same one I have in orange, it was just $15 and loose and light, perfect for summer!


How I've Worn The Pieces So Far:

  46. I'm loving the navy striped tee paired with the ochre maxi skirt, which is my favourite of the two outfits. Your Marc Jacobs bag is gorgeous too: what a lovely colour and it does look roomy enough for all those essentials we are always carrying around! I'm glad you were able to take the boys on the Ooshie swap day. Sorry to hear your knee injury is still bothering you. These things do tend to take time to heal! Hope your week went off to a good start, Mica! xxx

  63. Hi again Mica,

    First of all I see that your bag collection is really cool, definitely accessories are the best thing to buy since a good bag or backpack could last year if you take the quality into account.... The design of this Marc Jacobs model is perfect both for casual or more formal events :)

    And your striped shirts are super cool, totally identify with you since they are my favorite print.

    Oooh and good to know you had the chance to took your kids out for a few hours.... keep taking care :)
