Dusters and Denim With Blue Bags | Weekday Wear Link Up

I've been wearing a lot of jeans now winter weather has arrived in Brisbane! We have been lucky to have some warmer winter days though, so all I needed to add to each of these outfits was a lightweight printed duster.

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Delilah long line kimono in green floral
Necklace: thrifted wooden geometric bead necklace
Top: thrifted no label chambray tie strap cami
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I like blue and green together, so with this green floral duster I added all the blue! With the light chambray cami, to the blue Converse, blue mini MAC bag and of course the navy in the necklace. While the darker navy and greens in the necklace don't match the rest of the shades in the outfit, I thought they complimented it well.

And being a slightly colder start to the morning, I pulled out another pair of black jeans! This faded black pair I thrifted a while back have been such a staple for me - I'm to thankful to whoever donated them, as I've certainly got good value for money from this $1 thrift find. Nice and comfortable for the school run, working from home, and then a few errands after school pick up in the afternoon.

My Blue Handbag Collection:

What I wore:

striped duster, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

JacketKmart striped maxi cardigan
Necklace: thrifted flat navy statement bead necklace
Cami: thrifted Kmart dusty rose cami
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
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Again, the navy necklace doesn't really match the teal of the croc embossed Love too bag, but I really liked the two accessories together! This black striped duster is a polyester knit so it's perfect for winter days as it keeps me very warm, even over just a simple cami like this. I thought the cami would be a good pairing with the black and white stripes. I've worn a lot of pink with it in the past althoguh this is the first time I've tried this dusty pink shade. I really liked the combination, I thought the pink cami added a nice bit of colour to the darker accessories and the black and white of the striped duster, black jeans, and Converse.

This was a busy day, with the dentist in the morning for me and then a kid's birthday party to attend in the afternoon. Not an ideal combination of events - a partially numb mouth at the party was not so fun for me! The kids all had fun which is the most important thing, and it was good the party could go on (after already being postponed while the birthday child recovered from being sick).

Perfect for pregnancyConverse in second trimester.

  12. Super-cute outfits, Mica! I love the blue-green mix in the first one - all of those colours go so well together, it's like a soothing underwater mix. I like the bold colours in the second one - so nice with the stripes. Sorry you had a numb mouth at the party! I hope you're fully recovered from your dental work.

    Happy week ahead to you! Thank you so much for the link-party!

  16. Got to love an awesome find on a pair of jean.

  17. As always, you look lovely in both looks. The green duster is stunning and the second look really is a stand-out! I'm always thankful for thrifted pieces that people donated that fit me perfectly so I can relate to your feeling of gratitude! I hope you're doing well and I wish you a fab weekend ahead :)

  18. Both outfits are lovely; and look quite a bit like some of the ones I've been wearing here this spring/summer. Our weather has been pretty cool and rainy so far.
