Textured Jackets, Pink Tops, Blush Bag and Jeans | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, two outfits I'd planned to wear in the office. It had been a while since I'd worn these textured jackets, they look so good with jeans! Unfortunately with all the winter viruses going around in Brisbane at the moment I had to cancel one of my planned office days and work from home instead, but I still wore one of the outfits I'd planned anyway. Thankfully I was able to go into the office to wear my other planned outfit the next week when everyone was feeling better.


What I wore:

berry top with blush darren bag, printed ballet flats, jeans and tweed jacket for office | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with black outfit | awayfromtheblue



Jacket: Jeanswest Dixie collarless jacket
Necklace: Kmart black and gold double strand beaded necklace 
BlouseJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

This is the outfit I actually got to wear in the office! I was pleased I'd picked this berry toned top with the long sleeves as it was super cold in this office! It was my first time working in that building. Because some team members have moved around a little I was going to be meeting some colleagues face to face for the first time, and others after only seeing them on screens for a while! So I thought it was a nice dressy outfit for this, but still not too formal with the jeans. Jeans were a 5 day a week thing pre-pandemic in my office but it's even more casual now! Was pleased I wasn't the only one wearing jeans but did realise my mistake when everyone started pulling on all of their winter coats and cardigans after lunch when the office aircon got even colder πŸ˜‚ Next time I'm in that office I'll definitely pack a cardigan instead of this cute but not quite as cosy textured tweed cropped sleeve jacket!

Although the berry pink top is a very different shade from the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag I think they worked nicely together, and I really liked this outfit. It was nice to wear something different from Converse with these cute printed ballet flats too! Converse has been a bit of a default lately.


Last worn: tweed jacket, beaded necklace, berry blouse, Nobody Denim jeans, printed ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag.

3 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Darren Messenger Bag






What I wore:

pink tee blush darren bag, converse, skinny jeans, jacquard jacket and scarf | awayfromblue

Jacket: Jeanswest Cassandra jacquard jacket
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in azalea pink
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

I'd been planning to go into the office with just a few team members so jeans and a tee was not too overdressed for that, and I relied on the textured jacket to make it seem a little more formal for an office setting. Decided to still wear it even though I ended up not going into the office as one of the kids was too sick for school. Jeans and a tee is a great working from home outfit and I was very comfortable in this all day, for working from home and the school run. 

It was a much colder morning than I expected though so I added the scarf at the last moment. I couldn't decide between a few, but I haven't worn this floral scarf yet this year so it seemed like a good choice, even if the print is very busy against he textured boucle jacket. I like the blues and purple in the scarf against the pink tee, and again although the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Daren bag is a different shade from the brighter pink of the tee I thought they looked nice together. These faded black jeans I scored at the opshop last year are definitely proving their worth in my wardrobe too! This is their 8th wear and they were only $1!


Last worn: jacquard jacket, forest print scarf, pink tee, faded black jeans, white Converse, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag (above).

Other ways to wearjacquard jacket and little black dress, forest print scarf and cobalt knit, pink tee and shorts, faded black jeans and blazer, white Converse and chambray dress, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag and sundress.

How You Can Wear It:

A textured jacket - tweed or boucle - is a good way to make a casual jeans outfit feel a little more dressed up for the day!

  3. Your first jacket reminds me of a tweed moto I have in my closet. I love it! Hardly get to wear it because our weather is so mild but I won't get rid of it because it's a favorite.
    Hope you have a super week!

  4. I really like the length of that first jacket! I love berry but I don't really have much in that color. Pink is sometimes hard for me. I like blush and fuschia but other shades don't always work.

  14. Fabulous outfits, both of them, Mica! Look at you, in real shoes! :D

    I like the pale blush pink bag with both outfits - it's subtle but harmonizing. Oh, AC in offices! Right?? It's always cold! In the "before times" many of my colleagues kept ponchos, throws or wraps at their desks for when the AC came on.

    Thanks so much for the link-party! Have an awesome week!

  31. Hello,
    I'm glad your professional life is getting back to normal and you're meeting your colleagues face to face! I'm also happy to know that the professional environment doesn't require great formalism in terms of how you have to dress, so you can be comfortable in jeans! As for the looks, the first one is my favorite!

  37. What is it about a great work outfit? It can change your whole perspective! I'm so glad you got to wear the chic berry one to the office, even though you were cold. And it was nice that you went ahead and wore the pink one to work from home. Although my at-home work dress-up consists of putting on a nice top and necklace while still wearing my pajama pants, it still always cheers me up. Also, I'm sorry to hear about the virus surge in your area. I hope your family's doing okay. :)

    1. Thank you! Yes on the days I don't have to do the school run (sometimes hubby does) I'm usually in loungewear to work from home! But if I'm going out even just to drop off and pick up the kids I'll put on a proper outfit :)
