Pink Tees, Maxi Skirts, and Louis Vuitton Bags

Easy autumn outfits - pink tees, maxi skirts and Louis Vuitton bags, for two very different days. A very warm and sunny day, and a very wet day!

What I wore:

pink tee, black drawstring maxi skirt, sneakers and Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull tote mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull on shoulder | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | mum style pink v neck tee black maxi skirt Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull mm

Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed desert rose
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this on a hot day to visit another local trail with my parents and the kids. One we hadn't been to before, the kids loved it! It wasn't too long a trail for my knee and it was really quiet with plenty of space to distance from people. Was good for the kids to have a bit of a run around before the wet weather set in later that week too!

Kept it simple with a tee and maxi skirt - again with my New Balance sneakers, I need support for my knee when walking even though the trail was paved. I fit some snacks for the kids and all our water bottles in the Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull tote bag too - this is the perfect carryall and doesn't get uncomfortable even with multiple water bottles in it.

The pink tee was a nice way to add a little colour too. I liked the tassel necklace even though I wasn't sure at first if it would work with the drawstring on the maxi skirt. Really liked this outfit and the day we had out in the bush!

What I wore:

Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings
Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in azalea pink
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I'd planned to wear this outfit to bring a bit of colour to the wet week - a little colourful cheer in the big wet. We were lucky to avoid most of the floods so it was a regular day for us with the school run, a library visit, and sports in the evening. While it was a dry morning I quickly regretted my outfit choice when we got to the library - being petite this maxi skirt is a bit on the long side and it quickly started to get wet. Accidentally stepping into a puddle on the way home after sports was the worst!

Unsuitability for the wet weather aside, I did like the outfit! The pink tee is so perfect with the blue and pink floral print on the skirt, a really pretty and cheerful combination. The navy leaf necklace was a bit of matchy-matchy with the print on the skirt too.

How You Can Wear It:

A tee and maxi skirt is a staple outfit for mum life! You can use a pink tee to add more colour to a neutral skirt, or to bring even more colour to an already bright printed skirt. The pinks match so nicely in that last outfit!

  1. Hello Mica, I hope you're having a good Friday :) I imagine is already late in Australia.

    I really liked that bag, seems like the perfect option for a city bag to carry all the necessary stuff, from the smallest things like hand sanitizer to even a light jacket. I'd say it is a classic bag and one of those things that could be used despite the season or if your style is changing. The first one is my favorite and I liked how you mixed it with pink! :)

    Happy to read that you enjoyed some time outdoors with your beloved ones :) Keep enjoying!

    Hey Fungi

  2. So pretty in pink, and I love the second skirt!!!
    Kisses, Paola.

  3. Sorry to hear about all the wet weather and flooding. Hope you have a wonderful weekend Mica!

  4. I totally get that - long skirts in wet weather are the worst.

  5. Great looks Mica. Love the blue leaf necklace!

  6. OBSESSED with your first look - it is perfection! And that LV!!


  7. Ooh that trail looks fun! I need to start getting back into walking. Maybe now that the weather is warmer and we're almost vaccinated I can convince my husband to go for walks again, haha!
    And oh noo!!! That mean puddle! I hate when the bottoms of my clothes get wet. Definitely harder for us short girls!

  8. That's a great post.
    Have a nice weekend.

  9. Love these:) You really can't go wrong with classics like the maxi skirt and LV bag. And yay for finding a new trail to take the kids too! I am honestly getting bored walking around our neighbourhood but since we are in lockdown again, can't really go anywhere...sigh...

  10. Love your bags, I would really like to own one. Thanks for sharing today. Jacqui x

  11. You look SO good in pink, Mica - it's really a fabulous colour on you. You certainly have extremes of weather!

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  12. You look so pretty in pink and maxi skirt!
    I like this simple styles.

  13. Always love your styling of maxi skirts with cute bright tops. Beautiful Mica!
    Have a great weekend!

  14. Yes nice to get some color in before the cold weather hits. The LV bag is great a nice size and a classic pattern. The trail looked wonderful and indeed enough social distancing!

  15. I never really thought about it until you talked about needing the sneakers for your knee...maxis are good at hiding sneakers if you are trying to.

  16. So glad you were able to enjoy the trail! It sounds like it was a lot of fun. I absolutely love both outfits. The purse in that first look is just perfection. The size is perfect because it looks like it can hold an awful lot but is still practical to carry around! I hope you have a wonderful weekend <3
    the creation of beauty is art.

  17. Such beautiful outfits, Mica! I think the first one is my favorite, and love the Neverfull bag! It's on my list to get at some point. :)

    Wishing you the brightest weekend ahead, my friend.

  22. That cute pink top looks great with both skirts. Hard to pick a favorite.

    Hope you're having a great day.
    Grace & Peace, Iris

  23. I love that bag. I is big enough to carry things around when you are going to spend more time outside. I love the color of your shirt. :-)

  24. I like Tees, especially when the season transitions. Lovely outfits, Mica. I hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday.

  25. Two great outfits, Mica! Pink definitely suits you. The second outfit, with the blue maxi skirt and blue leaf necklace is my favourite. Such delightful colours the brighten up a rainy day, although I'm hearing you on a maxi skirt not being the best choice for a wet day. As a fellow petite, I know all to well :-) xxx

  26. Thank you so much for your comment, Mica!! Yes, I've always been very fan of Mickey since I was a little girl, so I love it too! hehe. And about the dress, it's a bit different from what I usually wear but can't wait to style it! :) Happy weekend! Kss

  27. I love the second outfit. You can never go wrong with a fun outfit on a rainy day.

  28. Love the first bag - the bigger the better haha! Love a simple tee too, they get so much wear! xx

  29. I love your outfit.
    Pink and blue go so well together.
    I wish you a great week.

  30. Beautiful outfits. I like first look that you wore for a day in a bush with your kids and parents. The pink tee looks lovely paired with a black maxi. It makes sense you wore sneakers, always a best option for walking, especially if the knee is giving you problems. That tote bag looks very spacious but chic at the same time. So great that you can find multiple water bottles in there. Staying hydrated is important. I imagine that as a mother, there are always things you need to carry in it. The second styling with the pink tee and a blue maxi skirt is very pretty as well. Blue and pink is always a nice colour combo. The blue necklace is cute too. You look lovely.
    I hope you had a nice weekend. Have a great weekend ahead.

  31. Lovely LV collection! I have a couple of them (maybe more...) and I've been wearing my Alma non stop in the last year!
    have a great week!

  32. I hate getting the hem of my pants or skirt wet on rainy days! I love that look though, the blue and pink go so well together!

  33. The pink tee looks cute on you! The blue leaf necklace is beautiful!

  34. I like both of those outfits on you and you have a nice handbag collection.
    Thanks for the blog visit Mica and I hope you have a nice week.

  35. Those Louis Vuitton bags seem so great! Both are basic and luxurious.
    I love your pink tee with the blue maxi skirt<3
    Sometimes I also step into a puddle, hahaha
