Orange Tops, Cobalt Bag, Floral Kimonos and Denim

Two bright and colourful outfits, wearing some orange tops with my cobalt blue Rebecca Minkoff Jumbo love bag. Although we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, it being October seemed like a good reason to get these orange tops out again, and pair them with some other colourful pieces too!

TopNew Look orange strappy cami top
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus turquoise and silver bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff quilted jumbo Love bag in cobalt


Why I wore it:

This was a very busy day so I went with the "clothing as armour" approach Sheila favours and dressed nice and brightly! I have worn this navy floral duster with orange before, but not this orange cami. I really think it popped, especially with the cobalt blue Jumbo Love bag. With the blue bag I just had to go matchy-matchy with the blue necklace too. I added another shade of blue against the bag, kimono and necklace, with the turquoise and silver bracelet stack as well! I kept the rest of my outfit neutral with the grey skinny jeans and the white Converse.

I had an appointment after school drop off I needed to bring some paperwork along for, so the Jumbo Love bag was a great size! After working from home and then doing the school pick up, I had an appointment for my son in the afternoon too. A very busy day! The Converse were good for all that driving around.

BagRebecca Minkoff quilted jumbo Love bag in cobalt


Why I wore it:

This was not quite the outfit I had planned to wear!

Similar to the outfit above, I was going to wear jeans with this, as it was predicted to be a very wet Spring day here in Brisbane. However it was so hot and humid that morning I decided to go with this black denim skirt instead of my black jeans. Definitely a good choice, it was so humid on the school run, although thankfully hadn't started raining. Even when the storm and rain hit in the afternoon I was glad I'd picked the skirt over jeans as it was still quite warm while picking up the kids, despite the rain.

This kimono has a little bit of orange in the floral print with a few orange leaves. It doesn't quite match the shade of the marigold orange tee, but I thought they complimented each other nicely enough. And just like the first outfit, there was a little matchy-matchy with the cobalt bag too, as there are blue leaves in the print of this kimono as well.

Knowing it was going to be a very wet day I picked my most supportive shoes. I did regret that decision on the way home from school when I accidentally stood in a puddle and it soaked right through the perforated fabric uppers on these sneakers! Thankfully it was on our way home so I could dry off afterwards!

How You Can Wear It:

Orange and blue always look so good together, in any combination of the shades! If you're not sure about it, try it in small amounts, like a blue bag with an orange top, as I have in these outfits.

  4. i always love when parts of prints bring out the other pieces in my outfits, even if it's not an exact match. Makes everything pop more! :)

  5. Wearing a kimono feels kind of like wearing a cape. At least, to me. That's what I like about it.

  6. I'm loving the pops of orange in both your outfits, but the first one is truly making my heart sing. The floral kimono, necklace and cobalt blue bag: everything is just perfect! And yes, I too practice wearing clothing as armour, and find it really works! xxx

  11. "Clothing as armor"!! I love it! I've never thought of dressing for that purpose, but I do love any way to incorporate a sense of protection in my life! haha The orange and blue look great together! I can see why that is such a popular combo for sports teams! (My dad and I were just talking about that the other day, haha. In Philly, our hockey team is orange and black, so just straight-up Halloween colors! :))

    1. A good excuse to wear orange and black outside of Halloween season! :) And yes, sometimes you just need to fake it till you make it - bright colours all the way!

  12. I love the cobalt color, it's my favorite lately!

  13. It definitely sounds like you had a busy day...but I love the "clothing as armor" idea. So smart! I just love that outfit. The kimono and orange top pair really well together. Definitely a good thing that you chose the skirt the second day. It can be tough to know what to wear when the weather is inconsistent!
