Skinny Jeans, Collarless Jackets, And Mulberry Bayswater | Weekday Wear Link Up

Skinny jeans and collarless jackets for the office with my Mulberry Bayswater tote bag. This Mulberry classic Bayswater tote was a staple of office life before 2020, but it hasn't been worn much since. It was good to get it out again, even if I don't carry much to the office to need such a big bag.

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Dixie collarless jacket
Necklace: thrifted yellow beaded statement pendant long necklace
Cami: thrifted Kmart dusty rose cami
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather

Why I wore it:

This was a very fun day at work - although maybe not the best day to wear so much black. We had visiting puppies who were up for adoption and if Cooper wasn't best suited to be a solo dog I would have filled in quite a few adoption requests! I had a lot of fun patting all the cute pups, even if I was constantly finding dog hair on my jeans after!

I've worn this dusky pink cami with black jeans before, I really like the combination. I felt that the tweed collarless jacket and the leopard print ballet flats made this a little more dressed up for the day in the office, even though I didn't have to be too formal because of the puppies!

Last worn: tweed jacket, yellow necklace, pink cami, Nobody denim skinny jeans, leopard print flats, Mulberry Bayswater tote bag.

Other ways to weartweed jacket and pencil skirt, pink cami and denim skirt, Nobody denim skinny jeans and printed top, leopard print flats and wrap dress, Mulberry Bayswater tote bag and florals.

What I wore:

JacketDiane Von Furstenberg Gabrielle boxy floral jacket in garden green (via Sheila's wardrobe)
Earrings: Colette silver filigree leaf diamante statement earrings
Tank: Kmart linen blend textured black tank
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather

Why I wore it:

I don't think the oak leather of the Mulberry classic bayswater went as well in this outfit as it did with the black and pink above, but it did make this outfit feel more formal for work. With the grey jeans and the black linen blend tank and black ballet flats, again this was quite a neutral outfit. So I got this pretty green silk jacket out again, it was one Sheila gave me a while back. With the collarless jacket and the v-neckline of the tank I had such a hard time picking a necklace for hit outfit - nothing seemed to go right! In the end I decided on these big silver leaf earrings so I didn't have to worry about a necklace.

I did like this outfit, but think maybe darker jeans or a darker bag would have worked better.

  1. I am loving your green cropped jacket Mica. Hope you are having a good week

  2. That green jacket is so chic! And that bag is worth bringing out again for sure. Thanks for the link up Mica!

  3. Mica, I love this bag! And your green floral jacket is so fun!


  4. The green jacket is fabulous.

  5. Two great combinations for work outfits, Mica! I love both cropped collarless jackets, and they are so on trend right now. The puppies sound like a fun diversion during the work day-who can resist? Enjoy your week, and thanks for the link up!

  6. Your first outfit is an absolute triumph, Mica, even if it wasn't quite suited to meeting puppies :-) I'm hearing you on the second outfit, but the green jacket is absolutely gorgeous! xxx

  7. The collarless jacket + ballet flats combo is so pretty and classic!

  8. Too bad you didn't have a lint roller with you on puppy day. That might have helped with dog hair on black clothes.

  9. How fun to have puppies visit you at work! I really like that collarless jacket, and I think the bag goes well with the second outfit, too! Have a wonderful week, Mica!

  10. Oh no, puppies! It always makes me smile to see that jacket! I know I've asked you before, but would you consider trying wider-legged trousers? I think a short cropped jacket like those would look amazing with a high-waist pair of pants. Thanks so much for the link-up, Mica!

  11. That green DVF jacket is gorgeous! It really pops with your gray jeans. Love!

  12. Both of these jackets look so chic! The collarless detail gives them a bit of an edgier vibe IMO. I especially like the green floral!
