Pink Dresses, Ballet Flats and Pink Bags | Weekday Wear Link Up

Have been really enjoying pink at the moment! My Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag in fig pink has been on frequent repeat lately, and in these outfits I wore it with some pink dresses to create these two tonal pink outfits with different shades of pink.

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Nadine 3/4 sleeve dusky pink blazer
Dress: thrifted no label pastel floral print babydoll dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 

Why I wore it:

Wore this to the office. I had planned the blazer and dress and bag as I thought all the different shades of pink would look nice with the peachy pink pastel print of the floral dress. I really loved them together, and got a few compliments on this outfit in the office. The blazer and dress are such a good pairing.

I hadn't decided what shoes to wear though and went with the black ballet flats at the last minute. I really wish I'd went with my tan or silver ones instead, I think the black is a little harsh with the pinks in the outfit. But overall, I really liked this outfit, would just try different shoes next time!

Last worn: blush blazer, pastel print floral dress, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted metallic clay bead necklace
Dress: thrifted Kmart short sleeve godet skirt linen blend dress in fuchsia
Belt: came with dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 

Why I wore it:

For a hot spring day, with the school run and working from home on the agenda,. it seemed like the perfect time to get this Kmart fuchsia pink linen dress out again that I thrifted a while back. And just like when I wore the floral dress above, I decided to try the little Rebecca Minkoff fig pink jean MAC crossbody bag with this. I did break away from being completely pink with the blue necklace. And I went with silver ballet flats this time, which I do love a lot more than the black ones I wore in the outfit above, with this dress.

I haven't worn this dress much over the cooler months, although I have tried it in winter before, Now that the weather has warmed up I'm hoping to wear it a lot more often, one of my favourite thrift finds!

  2. Such pretty outfits. Love the colors.

  3. I especially like that first printed dress with the blazer: very cute! Have a great week!

  4. Both of these outfits are so pretty! I love your printed dress!

  5. Blending multiple shades of pink is a beautiful look! I especially like the print one because those warm peachy-pinks are such a favorite of mine. Wonderful spring vibes from these outfits!

  6. I'm actually wearing pink today, too. (Well, it's more coral, but definitely in the pink family.)

  7. Love the first outfit combo. Have a great week.

  8. Oh, I think you did such a splendid job with all the pinks in the first outfit! Sometimes, I'm a little intimidated trying that. But, you look fabulous! I really like the second pink dress, too! It looks just like spring!

  9. I like so much both of your outfits- in both dresses you look awesome

  10. All the colors are fabulous!! I rarely go monochromatic, but I am learning to love it more and more.

  11. Two gorgeous outfits, Mica! I'm loving the first one the most as I think that babydoll dress's pattern is fabulous. I do agree though that tan or silver ballet pumps would have suited the outfit better! xxx

  12. That first outfit is so incredible! I love that dress, especially with the beautiful jacket over top. It looks stunning. I'm loving the second look as is definitely your colour. I hope you have a fabulous week <3
    the creation of beauty is art.

  13. Pretty in pink! You wear all the pinks so well. Love your outfit in the spring combo of pastels and the magenta monochrome is a gorgeous color. Enjoy your week and thanks for the link up!

  14. I'm loving your beautiful dresses! The floral one is so bright and pretty. I love the pink on you!
