Embroidered Tops, Black Jeans and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

I'm pleased that the embroidery trend is continuing! Gives me more justification to wear these lovely embroidered pieces from my wardrobe. I'll still wear them when the trend dies down, but it's nice to be able to wear something I'm constantly reading about in blogs. An embroidered top and black skinny jeans is an easy stay at home mum outfit, but to add extra interest to each outfit I have wore additional prints and texture too.

What I wore:

Top: Target embroidered khaki tank
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O, on sale!)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Hadn't worn this jacket for a while so it was nice to get it out again! I wasn't sure if the embellishment paired with the embroidery on the top would be too much, but I quite liked the resulting outfit. It was a nice change from last time I wore this embroidered top with black jeans too. Now that it's spring and warmer weather, I can hopefully wear this jacket more. It's a bit thin for winter.

I like how this jacket dresses up a casual outfit a bit - even if I was just popping out for a little shopping while hubby watched the boys.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

I've tried to wear other prints with these chevron printed Sass & Bide jeans in the past and not been entirely happy with the results. Just like the first outfit, I decided to try something different by pairing the chevrons with the detail on this embroidered top. I liked the result, but not enough to want to wear it again, haha! Will stick with wearing plain black jeans with this embroidered top next time.

Even though the embroidery and print together was busy enough, I added a little extra texture with the cardigan. I love the purple accessories with this - the cardigan is so cosy and wearing the cardigan and plum mini MAB tote bag together is a favourite combination of mine. Kept me warm on a very windy day.

The plan was to go to the in-laws for dinner, but after baby boy wasn't his usual happy self when we went out in the morning, we decided to stay home at night and let him rest and feel better. It's been such a tough winter with illnesses, I'm glad it's spring now as I'm hoping the warm weather and sunshine keeps the bugs at bay.

How You Can Wear It:

Black jeans are a great base for any outfit! The are the perfect backdrop to let an embroidered top or jacket shine. You can mix things up a little by buying black jeans with a print on them if you feel plain black is too boring.

  1. I love how the first jacket is professional and casual at the same time and there are a million ways you can style it! So beautiful! x


  2. I love the embroidery trend too, Mica!! Both these looks are great!

  3. I love the embroidery top your're waering in the second outfit, dear. The color combination of it makes me think of Greek style, perfect for summertime! Your yellow-mustard bag on the first outfit is gorgeous, by the way!

  4. Both of these outfits are fabulous! I just love your bags! And also, I really enjoyed your little photobomber in the first set of photos. :) What a cutie!


  5. On trend or not.. embroidered tops always have a place in my closet. My fave here is the first look.

  6. Embroidery is such a fun and feminine detail so it's no surprise that it's always in fashion in some way. Both tops are so pretty and the way you styled each is so fresh in it's own way.

  7. Your dog is so cute! Sorry, can't help but notice! How old is he? :)

  8. I'm also really pleased the embroidery trend is sticking around, it's such an easy and fun way of adding a little extra to an outfit. Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

  9. I seriously would die to have your bag collection. Both colors are so perfect for fall and I'm esepcially loving the bag in the yellow color family.

  10. I love the embroidery trend because it adds interest to outfits without having to add it through additional accessories. I love the first outfit with the tank and top together! The colors really look nice!

  11. These are such cute outfits, girlie! I especially love the first one, everything is so harmonious. Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great week so far!



  12. I like a detail like embroidery - it adds interest and "specialness" to an item. And yes! keep wearing it when the trend is over - fashion is fleeting but style is forever!

  13. I love the embroidery trend as well! It adds color and patterns to any look!

  14. Nice job on the Links a la Mode feature! I like the embroidery trend too, and I love that embroidered tops don't need a lot of other accessories! I like those jeans in your second look, and I love how you venture out and try style experiments even if you don't always love how they turn out. That's a great reminder to just have fun with clothes!

  15. Ooh the Sass & Bide jeans are fun and I like how you paired them with the embroidered top! I'm not daring with pattern mixing but need to try it more!

  16. Embroidered clothing are so beautiful! What great tops Mica!

  17. I have my eye out for some embroidery this season - I have a very particular style in mind so I hope I find it!
