Kmart Tiered Midi Dresses, Chloe Paraty Bag For Kids Birthday Parties

Easy weekend outfits for a fun weekend hosting birthday parties for my son! Kept it simple with my Kmart tiered midi dresses in bold colours, sneakers for all the running around, and my cute little periwinkle blue Chloe Paraty bag that works so well with both outfits despite the different colour schemes.

Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD, House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

My son had been asking if he could have a birthday party at this indoor play place for a while, so we decided to go for it. It meant two birthday parties - this day with his school friends running around playing and then another party the next day for family.

It was a very loud day but thankfully the play place provided us a party host, so when all the parents kept complimenting me on how well the day had gone and how smoothly everything had run I could just point to the wonderful staff who knew how to handle groups of overexcited screaming first graders much better than I!

With the bright amber dress there was no way the parents wouldn't be able to spot me as I moved around the play place, although I did add the white jacket to cover up my arms a little in case it was a cold day. The party area was upstairs and the play area downstairs so I'm glad I wore the Adidas Superstar sneakers as I had a lot of running up and down stairs during the day!

The blue necklace and wrap bracelet, although different shades from each other and the periwinkle blue Chloe Paraty bag, go so nicely with the amber midi dress. I liked how I could fit the camera in my Chloe Paraty too although I kept forgetting to take pics through the day - it just flew by so quickly! My son really enjoyed it.

Dress: Kmart short sleeve tiered jersey dress in Fuchsia
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

After the hectic and extremely loud party the day before, this was much more relaxed. Instead of a room of loud first graders we invited some family around to celebrate at home. There was a small last minute panic when I realised I'd forgotten to get some fruit salad for the younger attendees and so a quick run to the shop was needed, but for the rest of the time it was a very laid back day.

I've worn a magenta pink dress with this purple cocoon cardigan for my son's birthday party in the past, I knew the purple cardigan would work with this pink dress too! I liked the silver necklace with it as well, even if the hardware on the Chloe Paraty bag is gold and I was wearing gold earrings. The necklace matched my fun glitter shoes well.

It was a lot warmer day than I anticipated - I ended up rolling up the sleeves of this cardigan for a bit and considering removing it entirely as we spent some time enjoying the sunshine and playing outside in the back garden.

How You Can Wear It:

You can easily layer up a short sleeved midi dress for a cooler day with a light jacket or cardigan. You can stick with a neutral denim jacket like in the first outfit, or go more colourful and cosy like I have in the second outfit with the purple cardigan.

  4. You really threw some great parties - I just did Eleanor's 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago but we're still under a lot of restrictions here (well, we were then) so it was just grandparents invited so we could keep it to fewer than 10 people - we just had it at the house and went way over the top with a Paw Patrol theme in lieu of having many guests.

  7. I love those play places for birthday parties - just show up and done! I really like the first outfit so much - the colors are pretty on you and the necklace and bag are so complimentary to the neutral color of the dress!

  8. That first outfit is hands down my favourite outfit on you in recent memory, Mica! The amber-y yellow dress is SO GOOD with your blues, and the addition of the white sneakers and jacket help tone it down a bit. I bet you got a lot of compliment on it, as this look really suits you.

    I like the colour combo in the second outfit (and mixing metals is completely approved by me!), but it pales against the first outfit, in my opinion. LOVE the sparkly sneakers! Great finish!

    Happy birthday to your son! I remember when both of your kids were born - can you believe it's been so long?

  49. Hello Mica, nice to know that you were able to throw up some celebrations! I really miss these kind of situations from the pre covid era but luckily you had a really nice time and you had food involved which is always great!

    I like both options of course, and you know I really love color! This time I'd say the amber option is my favorite and now I am realizing that I don't have a lot of things in that color.... I should get some soon :)
