Striped Tees, Denim Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag

Two incredibly similar outfits for two similar days. Striped tees, denim skirts, Adidas Superstar sneakers, and my little purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.


What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum with navy stripes and denim skirt | awayfromtheblue


Necklace: rose gold and turquoise beaded necklace
TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Skirt: JayJays distressed denim mini skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum


Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy working from home day. I had the school run, a bunch of work to get through, and some errands to run in the afternoon. Simple stripes and denim was a winning combination. Once I picked the kids up from school we headed to one of our neighbours to help them with the flood clean up. She'd been away from her house when the rains came so there were a lot of mementoes she needed help with she hadn't been able to save before the flood, while the stronger people helped with moving out the bigger furniture items. Treated the kids to takeaway for dinner too as it was nice of them to come along with me to help her out. So many neighbours needing help as so many homes went under in the floods here sadly. If you want to, you can donate here to help.

I'd picked this little purple MAB tote to wear as I wanted a bit of colour after I put this outfit on - with the blue necklace, striped tee and skirt it was looking a little monochromatic! This is a beautiful shade of purple and was just the pop of colour my outfit needed - I only carried a few essentials with me.

Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Skirt: thrifted Target black stretch denim skirt

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum


Why I wore it:

Another day of working from home and errands! Again I went with a simple striped tee and denim skirt combo. Both the tee and the skirt were opshop finds, just $1 each! The shoes were a $3 thrift find and the mini MAB tote bag, although much more expensive, was a sale find years ago I've worn more than 50 times so this outfit has a great cost per wear!

I did think that morning about wearing another bag with this and picking one of my red crossbody bags instead to match the red logo on the tee, but decided to keep things simple and just use this little purple tote I already had all my things in from the day before. Wanted to make the day as easy as possible, the kids were home from school too while I had to work. School had been closed due to more predicted bad weather aggravating the flooding, but as you can see from the pictures the forecast was luckily wrong and it was a nice sunny day.

How You Can Wear It:

Striped tee and denim is an always classic combo. A denim skirt and a striped tee is a good choice to wear for early autumn days like these when it's not too cold and a simple outfit is all you need. You can add colour with a crossbody bag as I've done here too.

    I love a good denim skirt- you're reminding me I need to break mine out once spring really gets here in KC. In the meantime, I'm wearing all the bright colors in my new post!

  21. So good of you to help out your neighbors. I can only imagine the level of mess a flood makes and all the work of not only cleaning up but then also repairing the damage. I really like both of these simple outfits. I am looking to buy some new sneakers for this summer because they go so well with skirts and dresses, while also being completely functional. Have a great last couple of work days.

  22. I love both outfits, but I feel like your like an artist with clothes and fashion tbh, because the way you put together patterns and colors is and art. I would have never though of pairing clothes with your bags like that. I'm so sorry to hear about the floods, as someone who has been through themselves, it is always heartbreaking because even when you can prepare you will always lose something valuable and important. I had to google opshop, but in context I thought it might mean thrift store, and it's similar, but I like how yall's is for charity. :) But awesome when you get a great deal like that. You have to love when the weather forecast sucks, but then it turns out completely wrong and you have an awesome day lol.
