Camis, Skinny Jeans and Rebecca Minkoff Jumbo Love Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, wearing a bunch of new things! Two new spring cami tops my mum bought me back in the H&M winter sales, with jeans and my new-to-me Rebecca Minkoff jumbo Love bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff quilted jumbo Love bag in cobalt


Why I wore it:

So happy this day arrived - vaccination day! I'd been on the waitlist at Queensland health for over 9 weeks waiting for under 40s to be eligible, and for the vaccines to finally arrive in Australia. When I got that email that I was eligible to book a vaccine I was so pleased! In fact as this post goes live I've already got my second Pfizer dose. (Or Pffffiiiizer if you're a fan of Jimmy Rees like I am!)

You can register here if you're in Queensland to get your vaccine via Qld Health: https://www.vaccinebookings.health.qld.gov.au/registerforvaccination/. Or try hotdoc for a GP vaccine appointment, or your local pharmacy.

Because it was such a nice day we decided to make the most of it. I was booked into the Southbank hub so hubby took the kids to the playground while I got my shot and then we met up and had a wander around the museum after. Was such a good day!

Thought it was the perfect chance to wear this cute floral print cami that mum picked up for me in the H&M winter sale - just $5! I couldn't quite figure out the tie though, better luck next time maybe! I added the kimono for a little shoulder coverage in the sun and because it was easy to drop down for the vaccine.

First wearing of the Rebecca Minkoff Jumbo bag too, perfect for fitting all my essentials and my water bottle inside.


Last worn: earrings, crochet trim kimono, diamond necklace, heart necklace, grey skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers. First time I've worn the floral knot front cami as it is a recent gift from my mum, and first time I've worn the Rebecca Minkoff cobalt jumbo Love bag as it is a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearcrochet trim kimono and maxi dress, grey skinny jeans worn 30 ways, New Balance sneakers and dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff quilted jumbo Love bag in cobalt


Why I wore it:

Another new cami! I like this one as the cami as I don't have a lot of mint in my wardrobe and it's made with 55% recycled plastic. I'd been talking to a lady the night before who mentioned that some recycled fabrics aren't very breathable or comfortable so I was a little concerned. Luckily because this is a loose cami, it was a delight to wear! As I've given more than a few of the kids ruined, torn or stained clothes to the H&M recycling program I like the idea that I might be wearing some of those recycled fabrics, although I know it's unlikely.

This felt a little dressed up for the school run, sports for the kids and a playdate, but it was nice for a change - I've only worn this necklace to the office before. I wore my old fave black ballet flats as once I added the necklace to this outfit, I knew my Converse would just be too casual!

The only thing I didn't like about this outfit is that the cami looks a bit long in the pics, petite girl problems! Maybe I should have tucked it into the jeans, but I still loved wearing this though.


How You Can Wear It:

Spring means light coverups instead of full jackets, and bringing out the spaghetti strap tops like these cute camis. You can't go wrong with jeans either!

And yay for being fully vaccinated:) I've been reading how your PM botched the whole vaccine thing, and TBH, I felt like a lot of politicians worldwide handled this the wrong way, but hey....the important thing is finally getting it!

  19. Hello
    I'm amazed and surprised at you, do you have two new tops???
    I liked the first top most, I liked the knot detail!
    Congratulations on the vaccine, I've already had the second dose of the vaccine from Pfiiiizer eheheh!!
    As for the second look I imagine that these pants are not easy to match due to their pattern, but the look was also beautiful!

  20. WOO HOO, I'm so happy you've gotten both of your jabs, Mica! Doesn't it feel great? It was such a huge relief for me. :)

    I love both of your pretty tops - the first one looks really nice (good neckline on you). I'd be tempted to tuck those ties into the front of your jeans - they just kind of hang there limply. The colour of the second top is so pretty on you - it reads as more of a grey-ish green to me, so it goes so well with your zigzag jeans. Hooray for real shoes! I hope your knee was okay.

    It's highly unlikely that you're wearing any recycled clothing - H&M tends to reprocess plastic (like the soft kind in plastic bottles) into fibres and respin them (which uses a ton of water/energy). Unfortunately, plastic does not break down, so more microplastics get into the environment from that process. I totally get the allure of a nice new top, especially a washable one, though. It seems we can never win!

    If you are wanting to find tops in washable fabrics that aren't harmful to the environment, I would recommend looking for hemp garments. Hemp wears like iron, breathes and is fully washable. It does tend to be expensive, but worth it for things you wear/wash a lot.

    Have a wonderful week, my dear friend!

    1. Yes I'm pleased I'm fully vaccinated now - even though there aren't cases in the community I'll feel safer if the otubreak in Sydney moves up here to Brisbane! :)

      That is true about the tops - it's recycled waste but it doesn't say where the waste came from. I think plastic in bottle form is easier to recycle than plastic in clothing form (polyester), at least based on that Dana Thomas book I was reading recently!

  29. Such a lovely top! The colors really make your eyes pop! Ah, those vaccinations are such a relief, aren’t they? I am still cautiously re-entering life. We (Nigel and I) are approaching the time of a booster should one be needed. That does make me feel guilty as so many haven’t received their first jabs not to mention the naysayers here who refuse to get one.

    Thanks for the link party!

    Congratulations for this big moment! So good that you were able to take your vaccine shot! I got mine last July and I feel a bit more protected now. Hope we can go back to "normal" little by little but we still have to take care (avoid crowds, washing hands, etc.)

    I think it was a great idea to set a nice outfit for this special day, this look is full of happiness and I loved the blue touches!

    1. Aside from having to wear a mask indoors there aren't really any restrictions here in Queensland as there are no cases in the community, only in quarantine, so we are safe and the world is back to normal again here - it has been for most of the time. We are very lucky :) Of course we still distance and be careful about sanitising and washing hands with the masks though!
