Denim Skirts, Colourful Tees and Floral Kimonos With Luna Edie Bag

Wearing some new kimonos I got back in December! I was very spoiled for Christmas and got a lot of nice things. I did a little opshopping in December too, so I have a few new pieces I wore in these outfits.


What I wore:

marigold tee with black denim skirt sneakers floral kimono edie luna blue bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie regular shoulder bag in Luna blue worn crossbody | awayfromblue


JacketWoven Heart gold floral kimono (Christmas gift)
Necklace: thrifted Eb&Ive turquoise wooden bead multi strand statement necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Skirt: thrifted Target black stretch denim skirt 
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie regular shoulder bag in Luna blue (Christmas gift)


Why I wore it:

Wore this for an easy but colourful outfit for a trip to a beach playground. It's one we don't go to as often as we should but the kids really enjoy - there are so many little play areas all next to each other and once the kids have had enough of the playgrounds we can go play on the beach for a bit. Thankfully it was a hot and humid day so it wasn't too bad when my son tripped and fell into the water at the beach! We still ended up heading home after that though.

I knew I wanted to be a bit matchy-matchy with this pretty new kimono and wear the turquoise beaded statement necklace I'd thrifted, doesn't it match the turquoise flowers in the print so well? The marigold tee was another bright pop of colour, and the denim skirt was another recent opshop find too, a nice length for running around the playground with the kids. Although I did wish I'd worn shorts or a maxi skirt when I was sitting on the beach as the kids played.

First wearing of another Christmas gift as well with this Rebecca Minkoff Edie shoulder bag in Luna blue. I'd fallen in love with the colour earlier last year when it was released but eventually it all sold out on the Rebecca Minkoff site. Was so thrilled to stumble across this one at Saks and told hubby he had to get me it for Christmas!


Last worn: marigold tee, New Balance sneakers. First time I've worn the necklace and skirt as they were recent purchases, and also first wear for the bag and kimono as they are Christmas presents.

Jacket: Jeanswest Polly printed kimono in white base ditsy floral (Christmas gift)
Necklace: terrazzo and wood rose gold bead necklace (Christmas gift)
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
SkirtNobody Denim Piper vacation skirt in black distressed denim
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie regular shoulder bag in Luna blue


Why I wore it:

This was a combination I knew I'd try when I saw this pretty kimono my mum bought me - the floral print with the lilac tee. Again I went with a black denim skirt, this distressed one I bought preloved a few months ago. It's not the first time I've worn the skirt and tee together, it's a nice combination! Last time I layered it up with a darker floral kimono as a topper. This outfit was a lot lighter. I went with white Converse to match the white kimono, and this terrazzo and wood necklace my sons picked up for me for Christmas.

Although the Rebecca Minkoff Edie shoulder bag doesn't match any of the colours in this outfit I think this Luna blue is a good neutral! And I love how organised this bag helps me feel with the different compartments. Also carried a big Woolies reusable tote bag to the library with all of our books to be returned in it, so our water bottles went in there. Spent a little bit of time at the bike track after the playground too, although we didn't stay long as the rain started to sprinkle.


Last worn: purple tee, distressed denim skirt, white Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag (above). First time I've worn the white floral kimono and beaded necklace as they are Christmas gifts.

Other ways to wearpurple tee and maxi skirt, distressed denim skirt and grey tee, white Converse and dress.

Perfect for pregnancypurple tee in second trimester.


How You Can Wear It:
A black denim skirt is a staple piece to have in your wardrobe - you can't beat a tee and denim! With the neutral black, any bright tee goes, and you can add more colour and print to your outfit with a floral kimono as I've done in these outfits.

  6. These outfits look so pretty and cool for the humid weather. I always love your kimonos, so I was super excited when you said you got a couple of new ones. These are so pretty, too! :)

    Hope you have an amazing weekend, friend! In Ohio, we had an ice storm yesterday and it's snowing today. I'm dreaming of your warm weather, haha.

  8. You're tempting me to buy some kimonos. They won't look as nice on me, though.

  9. Two great looks Mica, but I've completely fallen in love with the first one. That kimono is utterly gorgeous, and both your marigold tee and turquoise necklace tie in with it perfectly.
    I'm loving the sound of that beach playground, not so much your son tripping and falling into the water!
    I'm hoping your weekend went off to a good start and that you've got some fun things planned! xxx

  14. These are some wonderful outfits dear. You always rock your kimonos. I love how you blue necklace in your first outfit matches with the blue details in the kimono. I also love the combo of mustard yellow tee and blue denim skirt. The combination of blue and yellow is always fabulous- and in this combo it makes that beautiful necklace stand out more. Your second styling is lovely as well. The purple t-shirt is a nice pairing with that more romantic print kimono.

    Thank you for your comment dear Mica. Have a nice weekend!

  26. Your turquoise necklace -- what a find, by the way! -- looks so sharp against your marigold tee. You must be the best-dressed mom on the playground. :)
