Kmart Floral Dresses and Blue Crossbody Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, sharing some pretty Kmart floral dresses I wore for the school run, working from home, and a little time with friends.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag and coral floral dress | awayfromblue

EarringsMichael Hill stud earrings with aqua cubic zirconia in sterling silver
Necklace: thrifted wooden yellow tassel necklace
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress (worn 30+ times)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Hadn't worn this floral print tiered maxi dress for a while - it was definitely overdue another wear! A Kmart impulse buy a few years back after seeing it on a few local Instagrammers, I still have and love this dress. It's passed 30 wears and still going strong!

I liked the cute little blue crossbody bag and the yellow tassel necklace with this dress, even though neither of the colours match those in the print exactly, I liked how this all looked together.

Spent some time in the morning after the school drop off with my friend and her adorable daughter, before getting in a few hours of work and then picking the kids up from school in the afternoon. It was another hot autumn day so this light tiered dress was perfect in the heat.

Last worn: blue earrings, yellow tassel necklace, floral tiered maxi dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff blue mini MAC.

What I wore:

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Necklace: thrifted gold and pastel blue beaded necklace with grey string (new purchase)
Dress: Kmart long sleeve black tie neck dress in floral wisteria print
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the Kmart floral dress in the first outfit that I paid full price for, this one I scored on clearance and it was just $2. Much like the dress above, I'm definitely getting my money's worth from it! Picked this to wear as after the school run, working from home, and then a quick errand in the afternoon after school pick up, we went to a movie night in the park with friends. It was a warm day but I knew the long sleeves and longer length of this dress would come in helpful in the evening so that I wasn't bitten by mozzies!

This was such a good outfit - I wasn't too hot during the day and I was nicely bug bite free in the evening. The kids really enjoyed the movie and getting to eat all the snacks and sit with their friends as they watched too!

Again, the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag doesn't match with the blue floral print on the dress, neither does the pastel blue of the necklace. I still thought all the different shades of blue looked good together though, and I didn't need to carry much with me, I had a big tote bag for our picnic rug and movie snacks!

Last worn: heart earrings, wisteria print midi dressrose gold sandals, blue mini MAC (above). First time I've worn the necklace as it was a recent opshop find.

  16. Sometimes it's nice to let the purse or jewelry not be quite exactly the same shade as the outfit. Looks good.

  17. You find such great deals Mica. I love the red floral dress so much,

  18. I am envious of your maxi dress game. You have a some great dresses and I find them so difficult to find. Anyway, I love the fun print in that red dress. It looks fantastic on you.
