Jeans and Tee Outfits With Printed Kimonos and Chloe Marcie Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, sharing more autumn outfits with skinny jeans, sneakers, colourful tees, kimonos and my Chloe Marcie hobo bag. I love autumn days where a light layer like a kimono is all you need with a pair of jeans to keep warm.


What I wore:

purple kimono jacket with Chloe Marcie medium shoulder bag in nut | awayfromtheblue



JacketThe Kindness Collective 'Kaleidoscope Dreams' printed kimono
Necklace: thrifted gold large double circle necklace
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagChloe Marcie medium shoulder bag in nut


Why I wore it:

This was a busy, but fun day! Had the usual school run, helping in my son's classroom, some time working from home before school pickup in the afternoon, and then shopping with my sister after I picked the kids up. We both only needed to grab a couple of things, but since she was near the bayside area she called and we decided to do our shopping together, and then have dinner. Was a very productive day.

With the deep purple tee and black Nobody Denim skinny jeans and black Converse, this was looking like a very dark outfit! I thought that the Chloe Marcie lightened it up a little, as did the gold necklace which was a nice bit of matchy-matchy with the hardware on the bag, even if it's slightly different shades of gold. I added the kimono to brighten the outfit up even more, although the purple tones in the tee and print are very different I thought they worked nicely together. Even if it was a little bit warm in the middle of the day, I was thankful for the kimono when things cooled off in the afternoon.


Last worn: purple printed kimono, slouchy tee, gold circle necklace, black Nobody Denim jeans, Converse, Chloe Marcie bag.

Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus faux pearl bracelet stack
BagChloe Marcie medium shoulder bag in nut


Why I wore it:

Another working from home day while the kids were at school, and a very chilly start to the morning! I did wonder if this kimono was going to be warm enough, but thankfully the day heated up a little. Another pair of black skinny jeans as well - these were just $1 and in my size at the opshop so I couldn't say no! Good denim is hard to find, especially when you're petite like me so I was thrilled with these!

Added the bright red tee - very bold and colourful with the black - not just because it matched the red flowers in the floral print of the duster, but because it would help ensure my son saw me at school. He was getting given an award and I wanted to show up at the ceremony and surprise him. He definitely had no problems noticing me!

Ended up taking this bracelet stack off when making a lot of noise at my desk trying to type up meeting notes! But I did like how the faux pearls matched the freshwater pearls on my tassel necklace nicely, even if they weren't the most practical choice for a day at my desk with lots of note taking!


Last worn: tropical floral duster, red tee, pearl and tassel necklace, bracelet stackAdidas Superstar sneakers, Chloe Marcie bag (above). First time I've worn these jeans as they were a summer thrift find.

How You Can Wear It:

Colourful printed kimonos are a great layer to add before the temperatures get too cold! They provide a lot of extra print and colour to a classic jeans and tee outfit.

  2. Kimonos are such wardrobe staples! They are so versatile and I love the both but especially the first one. I don’t see a lot of purple and this was eye catching for me. I hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday!

  9. Jeans and kimonos are just made for each other! Both outfits are super cute and I could see myself wearing either one. How fun that you and your sister had an opportunity to do something just the two of you, it sounded really nice. I also like your stacked bracelet set, but I could see how annoying it could become. Have a great week ahead.

  18. Two great casual looks, Mica! Adding a kimono really does the trick in jazzing up a jeans and tee outfit. My favourite is the second one, with its pop of terracotta and colourful floral kimono! xxx

  22. Sometimes it's nice to have a dark outfit on. It changes things up a bit, at least.

  23. I love that you wore red for your son to see you Mica. And kimonos are the best lightweight topper. It's so nice that you have multiple ones in different lengths too.

  25. These outfits are both so great! You are the best when it comes to layering pieces and making it look effortless. The kimonos are a great way to handle changing temperatures...and also look fantastic. Congrats to your son for winning an award. That is wonderful <3

  26. You look fabulous in both outfits, Mica! You are the Queen of Kimonos! I don't think the first outfit is too dark at all - it's perfect for fall verging on winter! I also really like the bright red in the second outfit - you look awesome in that colour.

    I love that your sons are growing up with a colourful mum! I'm sure you'll influence them towards a love of colour. I so appreciate that with my mom. Happy Monday, honey!

    PS - we ate the entire packet of Tim Tams (four of us). Then I noticed they sell them in my grocery store! :-O You've gotten me hooked! ;-P

    1. Oh haha I'm sorry for passing my Tim Tam love onto you! :) My sons love being deliberate with colours when picking out their outfits - my son wore orange and red once I said he looked very autumnal and he was so proud so he keeps repeating the combo. My other son wore a lot of red one day so I called him my little strawberry and now he randomly picks out a red top and shorts so I'll do the same again! they are good boys :)

  30. I really love the dark purple t-shirt and gold necklace paired with the converse. I can rarely type anything with my chunky bangles too, which is a shame as I love them so. Your son must of been so happy seeing you at the ceremony : )

  32. Hello Mica, I hope you're having a lovely week so far!

    I just loved the way you are adding your iconic bags to your outfit, this Chloe looks perfect and I bet I was a really good purchase! I have heard many good things about the brand and I bet it will last years!

    The first look is my favorite for the palette but it is impressive to read that you found the skinny jeans of the second look for just 1 dollar! Such a good purchase!

    Take care!

    1. Yes I find some Chloe bags are really good quality - and I regretted selling the Marcie I had previously so this was a great way to get it back in my collection for a lower price, buying it preloved!

    I especially love the first look.
    Happy Tuesday, Mica!
