Purple and Prints: Jeans and Tee Outfits With Cardigans and Magenta Bags

Two kind of similar jeans and tee outfits I wore recently with prints, purple, cardigans, and magenta bags.


What I wore:

Sass Bide printed skinny jeans with grey cardigan lilac tee and magenta marc by marc jacobs bag | awayfromblue

grey cardigan and Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet  | awayfromtheblue



Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Earrings: Kmart silver leaf drop chandelier earrings
Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Jeans:  Sass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bag: thrifted Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap


Why I wore it:

Not entirely sure that this outfit worked. I love all the pieces separately, but together I just wasn't feeling it. I wanted this purple tee to bring a bit of colour for a zoom call I had that day, and the cardigan was a good choice for both the school run and being comfortable while working from home.

I'd thought about wearing a statement necklace or pair of earrings the night before but hadn't actually decided what I'd go with. I ran out of time trying a couple options that morning so settled on classic silver with this Tiffany heart necklace and the silver dangly leaf earrings. The earrings feel a bit dressy for such a casual outfit, but they worked well to make me feel pulled together for my long zoom call during the day. I did however take them off for the school run - with mask rules in place in Brisbane meaning I need to wear masks indoors and when dropping off or picking up the kids. It's easier to take masks off and on without statement earrings like this!

I thought this Marc By Marc Jacobs bag would be nice as I really didn't have to carry much - just the essentials, and it has a main compartment for my wallet and phone, a pocket for car keys, a pocket for hand sanitiser and a front pocket for my mask! Perfect. I really like how it looks with the lilac tee too.

What I wore:

leopard print tee with navy waterfall cardigan, converse, magenta edie bag and purple skinny jeans | awayfromblue

navy cardigan with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
Necklace: Chanel necklace layered with Tiffany diamonds by the yard necklace 
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Jeans: Jeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta


Why I wore it:

I liked the colours of the outfit above, so repeated it again a couple of days later. And repeated the Converse too! This time I wore the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag in magenta, purple jeans and a printed top. I noticed this old grey leopard print tee in my wardrobe and realised it was overdue a wear! It was a bargain $2 sale find in winter 2019, but this is only it's fifth wear since I bought it. Not bad at 40 cents a wear, but I really should wear it more. I thought the grey leopard print looked good with the navy cardigan and purple jeans.

Tried a little necklace layering too with the round neck letting me pair two shorter silver necklaces together, instead of a big long statement necklace as I'd usually wear. Not a huge difference but nice to try a little departure from my regular accessorising!

Was a quiet day so this was a really comfortable outfit for it - school run in the morning, some errands and an appointment with the little one afterwards, and our regular library run too.

How You Can Wear It

Pink and purple look good together! A magenta or pink bag can be a fun accessory worn with something purple in your outfit - from a light lilac to deeper purple shades.

  4. I really like these outfits, Mica...especially the colour scheme of the first one! The magenta bag is is stunning too!😊😊
    I find wearing earrings and masks together a problem too, and also sunglasses!🙄

    Have a good day!

  5. Your pretty purple bags remind me of one I have that I should get out for fall! It's beautiful with the colors of your outfits!

  6. I hate that feeling when an outfit feels like it should be really good based on the individual pieces and then it just doesn't seem to work. But, for what it's worth, I think both these outfits look great. I love the colour combinations and those patterned jeans are such a great piece.

  10. Both outfits are so beautiful! I have to say...the shoulder strap for that first look is SO COOL. What a great piece and a really fun way to mix things up. It is so stunning!

  11. These are both really cute casual looks - I like your colours in both. That grey cardi looks supremely snuggly!

    I have gotten used to just putting my mask over my big earrings - if I'm going to be wearing the mask for a while, then I'll thread the earrings through properly, but if it's only for a few minutes, then I don't bother.

    Hope you are having a good week, Mica!

    1. We have mask rules indoors but not outdoors so I have to mask up to collect my kids but take it off in the car, earrings are just too fiddly then!

  12. Great outfits with skinny jeans. Love your tops. The leopard printed tee looks great with purple jeans. I have a similiar leopard print top. Beautiful RM bag as well. The converse sneakers are always a good choice.
    Have a nice day!

  14. In spite of your not feeling it, I'm loving your first outfit best! That lilac tee is such a nice colour and works wonderfully with the thrifted Marc Jacobs bag. How lucky you were to find that, by the way. I'm not wearing earrings myself but can totally see them getting in the way with mask wearing. I'm having problems enough as it is with my glasses! xxx

  22. Hello Mica, I hope you're having a lovely week and happy Friday!

    I think both are nice options! Sorry to hear that you didn't feel comfortable enough in the first outfit, but I really like the combination, anyway you could always try to ditch some accessories or replace some pieces for others.... the combinations are endless!

    And about the second one I like the color palette, specially for the burgundy in the bag which is a powerful color! And 40 cents per wear is not that bad, I'm sure you will use the t-shirt in more combinations, maybe with skirts or shorts or under a blazer? :)

    All the best!

    1. Thank you for the ideas! I really do need to wear this tee more! It's often sadly neglected in my wardrobe!

      And yes, the good thing about fashion - I can just change things up next time I wear these pieces, they are only clothes after all :)

  31. Hello Mica
    Regarding your two looks that you present to us, the color palette is similar, I think as you say you had more problems with the first look maybe because the pattern of these pants is not easy to match! And, that's why I prefer the second look!
    I wish you a great weekend, here there are elections for the other weekend so there is only talk of political parties!

  35. That hue of a bag is so gorgeous. It almost resembles a berry tone which I just love. The way you styled them so fun and casual makes for a great outfit idea. Hope your weekend is going well.

  40. The two magenta bags are both elegant and functional. And That grey colour of the 1st picture is unusual. Really beautiful! In addition,
    it enables multiple combinations of colours.
    Just read your comment ... I would like to see the Lego exhibition at the Museum. The great news is that you have no coronavirus cases there in Brisbane and its surroundings. I have heard there aren't enough vaccine doses in Australia ... I hope the number of contaminated people in your country will continue to decrease in the months ahead, as in summer the virus isn't as strong as we used to see in winter.
    Here on the 42nd parallel of the North emisphere people are still going in the hills, beaches, and countryside, although summer is going to an end. I think this year Italian people will go biking, walking and swimming until they can (😷 instead of restaurants, cafes and indoor venues).
    Have a nice week, Mica ☀️

    1. The Lego exhibition was so much fun! Yes with the lack of vaccines here we are lucky that there are no cases :) We have started to get more vaccines in so hopefully there will be more of us all vaccinated soon so we are better prepared if there is another outbreak!

  43. I completely agree about it being hard to navigate statement earrings and a mask. My earrings have seen much less wear this past year because of that...

    Love both outfits!
