Navy Dresses and Luna Blue Rebecca Minkoff Edie Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up

Keeping things blue with two navy dresses, a bluey-grey bag and white sneakers for a couple of outfits a few weeks ago. I love how well this Rebecca Minkoff Edie shoulder bag in Luna blue goes with these two very different navy dresses.

Why I wore it:

This is the prettiest floral dress! My sister gave me it for Christmas and she picked so well! The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag is a Christmas present too, as is the little gold charm necklace with one personalised name charm for each of my boys. I really got a lot of great Christmas gifts!

As a planned get together was cancelled due to possible Covid exposure, I was looking for another reason to give this pretty dress a wear. Not the fun party I'd planned to wear this dress too, but it was still good to give it a first outing for a mixed bag of a day with a trip to the dentist for the kids in the morning and then lunch at the in-laws in the afternoon. Things are usually pretty casual for lunch but I felt this dress still worked nicely, and I loved wearing it. Will definitely need to find more reasons to wear it in future!

I liked the gold necklace with the neckline of this dress too, even if the hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag is silver, I didn't mind the mixed metals. I went with the practical Adidas Superstar sneakers to help this seem like a more casual outfit too.


Last worn: Adidas Superstar, Rebecca Minkoff Edie shoulder bag. First time I've worn the dress and necklace as they were Christmas gifts.

Review And What's In My Bag With The Smaller Edie Crossbody:



This was a busy day! We had a fun morning visiting my parents, a trip to the library in the afternoon, and we also we had to go drop off a Covid care parcel for someone who was isolating after testing positive. After they removed the need to quarantine when you enter Queensland in December our cases kind of exploded, and so now we are at the stage of having people close to us test positive. It means dropping off little care packages with groceries and cards from the boys to try cheer them up. Thankfully they did have a speedy recovery, as this was back in January, and they are back to normal life now!

Outfit wise I kept it simple - this navy tiered dress looks so good with Converse, I wore it with Converse the first time I wore it too. And with the basic navy dress this turquoise and gold necklace was a good way to add another little extra shade of blue - it was a Christmas gift from the boys. Just like with the printed navy dress above, I found the Luna blue Edie bag was a great accessory with this outfit - it just works so well with other shades of blue.


Last worn: navy tiered dress, Converse All Star, Rebecca Minkoff Edie shoulder bag (above). First time I've worn the necklace as it was a Christmas gift.

Perfect for pregnancyConverse in second trimester.



How You Can Wear It:

Sneakers and dresses are a staple outfit formula. You can make accessorising really simple by picking a bag that's similar to your dress, just a different shade. The bluey-grey bag works so well with the navy dresses here.

  24. OMG, Mica, that first dress is AMAZING! What a lovely pattern and style - it suits you to a tee! Your sister obviously knows you well! It's a total jammy dress, so I hope you just wear it for the heck of it whenever you feel like it! No need for a special occasion!

    I like the second dress, but after the first, it feels a bit blah (even though it's not, but just by comparison). I would really like to see some more pattern/colour in this outfit - maybe a little scarf tied onto that fabulous bag?

    Glad you are all staying safe - it does feel like everyone's getting Covid now, doesn't it?

    1. She does, she picked so well! I was amazed when I opened the pressie - I'm so pleased with it! I am looking forward to colder weather so I can layer that navy dress up with more scarves for a bit of colour and print, and maybe with some kimonos too! It's a nice basic piece :)

      Sadly our government want everyone to get it they think that's the only way to end it, so it's going to be hard to avoid it :( So many friends with sick kids now schools are open again :(

  42. I am totally loving these two dresses, Mica! That first dress was great gift from your sis...yay sis:D And yeah...it's so crazy what's still going on with Covid:( My mom, who is the most careful and paranoid person, still ended up getting it! Thank God she's gotten three shots, so her symptoms were mild.
    PS I know what you mean about Reed Krakoff! I was curious awhile back and wanted to see his collection but apparently, his brand dissolved awhile back. I think for a short while, he did a cheaper collection but that didn't last long either. Too bad coz I really liked the Boxer Bag!

    1. I'm so sad your mum caught it - it's really good she had a mild case, and I hope she is all better know! So far I've known of some mild cases but mostly cases that were hit hard so I'm scared of catching it even with 3 shots!
      That's a shame the brand dissolved, the Boxer Bag is cute! it's good you have yours :)

  43. Hi
    How lucky Mica you received beautiful Christmas gifts, the dress is really charming! Sorry to hear that some of your family members have tested positive, we here have many - thousands - of cases daily! I liked the first look better and the bag is very pretty!

Things really exploded here too in the time around Christmas, with lots of people we knew either testing positive or getting exposed. Glad that’s calmed down a bit!
