Rebecca Minkoff Regan With A-Line Printed Skirts and Black Blouson Tanks For The Office

When I'm not sure what to wear with a printed piece, I'll pick out a colour from the print itself and wear that with it. That's why I wore black tanks with both of these a-line printed skirts. Add a blazer and a cute bag like the Rebecca Minkoff Regan and it's easy business casual office wear.

What I wore:

Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Can't believe it's taken me so long to wear this necklace and skirt together! They are such a good combination. With the black in the print and the black top and jacket, the yellow necklace was a fun way to continue the cheerfulness of the skirt into the rest of my outfit.

I picked the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag to wear with this as I've worn this skirt with navy before. I figured I'd try the same colour combination but with my accessory instead of a navy top. I really liked this outfit, perfect for a day at the office.

It was a busy day though! I usually try get a quick mirror outfit pic to share on my Insta stories like here (in the bathroom at work, classy!) but I didn't get an opportunity on this day. I snapped one on the way home instead.

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Review (And What's In My Bag):

TankJeanswest Brianna basque hem tank
SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon
Nail PolishOPI Russian Navy

Why I wore it:

I frequently wear this silk skirt with black, it lets the lovely autumnal colours of the leaf print stand out. I thought the cream blazer would be nice with it, with the taupe in the print, but I didn't like the combination as much as I thought I would.

I did like the little blue necklace I added though! It was a gift from my lovely friend, and with the navy bag I thought I should introduce something else navy into my outfit other than my blue nail polish. Usually I'd go for a longer necklace with a plain tank like this, but I liked the shorter one with this.

This day wasn't as busy as the previous day above. It was a little bit of a stressful day with a complex problem at work that required a morning Starbucks run, but we had a big Easter afternoon tea with LOTS of hot cross buns and some chocolate to kick of the Easter long weekend so it turned into a great day. Chocolate is always a mood booster!

Printed A-Line Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

If you're in a business casual environment, a knee length a-line skirt is a great option. You can get so many fun prints too, it's a nice way to add a little colour to your work wardrobe. You can keep things simple (and make getting dressed for work faster!) by picking a colour out of the print and wearing a coordinating top. In both these cases, there was some black in the prints, so a nice neutral black tank was a great option with both skirts.

  10. Hi Mica
    You always have some great outfits for the office. You're a perfect executive, from the bag to the necklace. I really like silk skirts, in fact silk is the fabric I like the most.

    The weather here is improving and today I will take the afternoon to take pictures. I hope you have a wonderful week.

  13. Printed skirts are so lovely! I do the same when I'm not quite sure about how to style a printed piece. That trick always works and the outfit ends up looking cohesive and fun. Loving the second outfit as well, the light jacket tones the printed down and looks so professional! <3

  39. Why complicate things?! I like to match my skirts like that too often. Either that or pair them with a white or black top just to keep it simple. I love the way your yellow necklace looks paired with your skirt! Those pieces were made to be worn together! I can't wait until I can wear skirts without tights! It's been a long winter!

  40. I love your simple yet polished casual yet dressy office style. I do the same thing with printed pieces and pick a color out to wear with another piece in my outfit, like a top or a third piece. I am liking these chic office looks lately that are still very you!

    Looks like your Easter was great and I agree chocolate always boosts one's mood!
