Navy Printed Dresses For The Office with Leather Jacket and Boots | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's weekday wear link up, I'm layering up two blue printed dresses for winter office days. I added leather jackets, fleece lined tights and boots to make these more suitable for the cold early morning commute.

What I wore:

thrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Wittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Necklace: adjustable coral flat bead necklace
DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (c/o) 
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
Bagthrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Why I wore it:

I love this cobalt leather jacket so much - can't believe this is the first time I've gotten it out this winter! I really like the brighter cobalt blue against the navy floral swing dress. The dress is quite light as it's just viscose, so I did debate adding a scarf with this, btu decided this pretty coral necklace was so similar to the colours in the print that it would be wrong to cover it up with a scarf. the jacket is roomy so I could zip it up for the cold morning thankfully.

The tall leather boots added a bit of extra warmth too, and with the cobalt jacket, dark navy Cupid bag and the tan boots, there was a lot of different colours of leather in this outfit, but I think they all work so nicely together.

Last worn: cobalt leather jacket, coral beaded necklace, navy floral swing dress, tan leather boots, Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag.

JacketWitchery black belted moto leather jacket
NecklaceTiffany & Co pink double heart tag pendant necklace
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bagthrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Why I wore it:

Not quite as colourful as the outfit above, but this outfit featured exactly the same outfit formula, with a navy printed dress, fleece tights, boots, and this time around a black leather jacket. I love both of these leather jackets a lot, but I'm still amazed I scored this one at Gladrags Markets for just $30, considering the cobalt one was one I bought full price and it cost 10 times as much as that! I really enjoy finding preloved bargains!

While I do prefer this dress with bare legs in the warmer weather, I think with all of the black (and the very dark navy of the Rebecca Minkoff cupid bag) this dress layered up nicely.

Last worn: black leather jacket, Tiffany necklace, navy tile print dress, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff Cupid (above).
