Neutral Dresses And Pink Balenciaga City Bag

A sign of how behind I've been with blogging, these are the outfits I wore for the first week back at school at the end of January. Back into the routine with the school run each day called for easy outfits - nothing easier than a neutral dress and a bright pink bag, this Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag really pops against neutral.


What I wore:

Necklace: Colette crescent purple and gold necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet


Why I wore it:

Had a busy day ahead, with some errands after the school drop off so I picked this grey skater dress, it looks so good with pink but surprisingly I've never worn this bag and dress together before. I was so sure I had until I looked back through my blog archives. Despite taking years to wear these two together I really liked the pairing, especially when I added the little magenta necklace too.

Good simple outfit for a hot day with a little running around - we visited the library and got some groceries as well as attempting to return an item to Jeanswest. They don't do returns for sale items any more so I had to exchange instead - luckily my sister had her eye on a dress in store and I could pick that up for her.


Last worn: grey skater dress, magenta crescent necklace, Adidas Superstar, Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag.

Why I wore it:

More matchy-matchy with a pink necklace and pink bag! Working from home and doing the school run called for something really easy - this dress is what my blog friend Sheila would call a "jammy dress" as it's as comfortable as pyjamas, just what I needed for an impossibly long day of meetings. I'd planned to wear this dress as I knew the first week back at school after the summer holidays would be a busy one as we all settled into the routine, dresses are so good for outfits you don't have to think too hard about!

I'd grabbed the Adidas Superstar sneakers to wear without considering the stripes on the dress but looking at the photos I liked the contrasting stripes! Was just another bit of matchy-matchy like the pink accessories really.

How You Can Wear It:

Bright and colourful bags are a fun pop with a simple neutral dress outfit - you can match a necklace too for a little extra colour without thinking too hard! Simple summer school run style!

  1. Dresses are the best way to get that pulled together look quickly! Bonus if they're as comfortable as pjs! The pink bag looks good with both dresses - such a pretty color!

  2. That bag definitely pops against neutral greys - it's a really lovely colour. And I love the concept of a "jammy dress," it sounds like most of the things in my closet these days.

  8. Aw, thanks for the "jammy dress" shout-out, Mica! Both of these would fall into that category for me (but do they have pockets??). I love the colour of that pink bag, and you did well to add little bits of pink/magenta from your jewelry stash to go with it.

    I hope your week is going well - weekend's nearly here!

  10. Phew, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's behind with blogging. I've just posted the last of my January outfits too. I love how your grey skater dress looks with the pop of pink from your bag. Grey and pink are such an excellent combo, aren't they? The pops of pink look fab with your striped tee dress as well! xxx

    1. Ditto what Jodie said. You have the best bags!! They can take an outfit to the next level. I love the 2-tone gray dress. It is super cute and comfy at the same time. Just saw something similar at Walmart.com. Thinking it might need to come to mama!!

  28. A jammy dress! Love it! My favorite kind of dress, haha. Loving the pops of pink with these neutral dresses! How is your knee doing? I'm noticing lots of sneakers... (or maybe that's just a fluke of these outfits coming close together).

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love that grey dress! I have some similar ones but I'm a bit too tall for a lot of them so they don't look that great!

  40. Mica, your pink bag is so great with both of these neutral dresses. I am always a fan of a striped tee shirt dress. And your gray dress is super cute. I really like that it is two toned. Such a fun little detail! Thanks for linking with me!
