Monochromatic Blue Outfits With Printed Maxi Skirts and Purple Balenciaga Work Bag

Adding a little extra colour to monochromatic blue maxi skirt and tee outfits with my big purple Balenciaga work bag. Not doing anything different from usual or carrying anything more than usual that requires such a big bag, I've just been missing wearing this so got it out for a couple days!


What I wore:

Earrings: Piper recycled metal turquoise tassel earring
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Skirt: Jeanswest Farrah blue tie dye maxi skirt (from my sister's wardrobe)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag


Why I wore it:

So pleased with this skirt! My sister had a wardrobe clear out. As we used to do when we lived together at our parents, we give each other first pic of anything we will be donating. She had so many new with tags pieces she no longer wanted, and a lot of adorable playsuits but I just can't get over the bathroom issue with playsuit and jumpsuits πŸ˜… This maxi skirt however was definitely perfect for me!

I have a tie dye maxi dress in grey I've worn as a skirt a few times so I have lots of inspiration for how to wear this. And in fact this navy cropped tee over my grey tie dye maxi dress was one of my fave outfits with my dress, so this was such an obvious pairing. Added the turquoise tassel earrings for a little bit of matchy-matchy with the blue tie dye print. The white Converse were a comfortable choice for the school run, playground and library. And the purple Balenciaga work bag added more colour and gave plenty of space for a snack for the little one and our water bottles!


Last worn: navy cropped tee, turquoise tassel earrings, silver circle necklace, Converse, Balenciaga purple work bag. First time I've worn the tie dye maxi skirt as it's from my sister's wardrobe.

30 Outfit Ideas For a Purple Balenciaga Work Bag:

BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag


Why I wore it:

I'd planned to wear my old Kisschasy band tee with this striped maxi skirt for a quiet Friday. School run, library, and a couple errands. Being a cooler autumn morning than I expected that morning though I had to quickly add another layer - this denim jacket is a wardrobe oldie and it continues the monochrome blue look with the navy striped maxi skirt and navy tassel earrings. Again the purple Balenciaga work bag added more colour even though I didn't need all that space in my bag.

We had a couple errands to run and some books that had to be returned to the library that day, before getting home to wait for a delivery as hubby was only working from home in the morning and going into the office for the rest of the day. Busy, but achievable. However I'd not known that some of the places we had to visit had changed their opening hours. I noticed when I got there and there were different times written on the door than I'd seen online the night before. Turned a busy morning into a mad scramble to get everything done and back home on time, but we achieved it. Just! πŸ˜‚ And at least it warmed up a little!

After school pickup in the afternoon I was exhausted. I'd planned to change into something a little dressier for drinks with the neighbours that night but decided just to keep wearing this. Worked out well as the heat that had developed over the day stuck around and the jeans outfit I'd planned would have been too warm. Ended up feeling really comfortable in this.

How You Can Wear It 

A monochrome blue outfit is easy to do when you have as many different shades of blue in your wardrobe as I do! But this outfit formula of printed skirt and tee in the same colour family will work no matter what your favourite colour is.

  4. Yea the bathroom can be a struggle with jumpsuits/playsuits but sometimes it's worth the hassle! (I love them for vacation even though it's awkward in public restrooms)
    That Balenciaga is such a perfect purple, I'm always so jealous when you wear it, haha

  7. How lovely to get first pick of your sister's wardrobe clear-out. I'm hearing you on the impracticalities of playsuits and jumpsuits, but still find them irresistible. But that aside, I'm loving the blue tie-dye maxi skirt you chose, and it looks fabulous with the navy cropped tee. This is my favourite outfit of the two, although I'm loving the second one as well. xxx

  23. I love my jumpsuits but it is really hard to go to the bathroom in them! I need to get some new maxi skirts. I used to live in them in the summer but I did have to get rid of them when I lost all my weight a few years ago. You look stylish and comfortable!

  39. Adding a hit of another color is such a good way to add a bit of visual interest to a monochromatic outfit. Your purple bag both stands out and coordinates really well with both looks.

  41. I LOVE that your Kisschasy is still in the regular clothing rotation! <3 And I now wear bralettes with rompers/jumpsuits, and it's been a game-changer! It's not a perfect fix, but it definitely helps to feel more covered up in the bathroom!

  43. How nice that your sister gives you the things she's going to purge. My cousin just handed off a couple of things to me too, and it's such a great way to be more sustainable!!

  44. I watched the video of you showing us how you had styled the purple bag. It was so fun to watch as I love your voice and the aussie accent is just everything. I love how you styled the bag with black and white outfits. That's my most favorite. But of course, the bag is amazing with other outfit styles too. I totally relate on wardrobe swapping with sis, hahah. I have so many pieces of hers that I wear now. :D xoxo
