Matching Handbags With Prints, Denim Skirts And Tees | Weekday Wear Link Up

I was eager to wear my two new-to-me thrifted cover ups right away! Both featuring busy, colourful prints I decided to wear them with simple tees and denim skirts, and match my handbags to the colours in the prints.

What I wore:

Cotton On maroon wanderlust floral border cover up with purple tee white denim skirt playdate outfit | awayfromtheblue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB crossbody with studs in desert rose | awayfromblue

Jacket: thrifted Cotton On maroon wanderlust floral border cover up (new opshop find)
Necklace: thrifted metallic clay bead necklace (new opshop find)
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine
Skirt: Target classic denim skirt in white
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB crossbody with studs in desert rose

Why I wore it:

When I spotted this cover up in the racks at the opshop I thought it looked so familiar - I have the exact same one in a navy print! Had to get this maroon one too. I thought of wearing it with this purple tee right away. While it doesn't match the print as well as I thought it would, with the tee being more purple and the background being more maroon, I really liked the two pieces together. The white denim skirt was an easy matchy-matchy choice, along with this Rebecca Minkoff desert rose studded MAB crossbody bag that matches the peach in the leaf print really well I felt.

Loved the colours in this outfit, and it was nice and light for a very fun school holiday playdate at the park with the kids on such a sunny day.

Last worn: purple tee, white denim skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff studded MAB crossbody bag. First time I've worn the printed cover up and beaded necklace on the blog as they are both recent opshop finds.

Why I wore it:

I have quote a lot of blue based cover ups in my wardrobe, but I could not resist this one when I saw it on the racks at the opshop! I knew with the turquoise in the print it would be so fun to wear with some of the turquoise accessories in my wardrobe. Although this little aqua mini MAC bag didn't quite pull out the colour from the print as much as I hoped it would, I really like the extra colour it added to this outfit.

The necklace was a find on the same opshop trip! I have a few of these flat beaded necklaces now, and with blue being my favourite colour, this one is quickly becoming a staple. It was a perfect match with the print and I liked the navy together with the black distressed denim skirt.

Nice and easy outfit for the school run and working from home.

Last worn: white tee, distressed denim skirt, New Balance sneakers, aqua mini MAC bag. First time I've worn the navy cover up and the navy flat bead necklace as they are both recent opshop finds.

  2. Love both of these kimono skirt looks Mica! I tried to link up but couldn't do it. It wouldn't accept my image for some reason. I have trouble sometime with Linkz. Have a great week!

  3. Kimonos are so fun to add interest to summer outfits! Love how lightweight they are.

  4. A kimono is such a great alternative to a cardigan or a lightweight jacket. Now I am kind of wishing I hadn't gotten rid of mine. LOL. Is it still pretty warm there?

  5. Mica, I love both outfits on you. I like the pretty kimonos too. I hope you have a nice week.

  6. You find the cutest print kimonos! Both these outfits turned out great.

  7. Love both of your print kimono and denim skirt outfits! You make the most stellar finds at opshops. Hope you enjoy your week and thanks for hosting the link up!

    Love the looks and great deals Mica,

  9. Wow! That maroon floral top is beautiful!


  10. Those are great kimonos.

  11. You are the queen of layering kimonos, Mica! How funny that you found the exact style you already have and love in a different color--it was meant to be. =)
