Maxi Dresses and Printed Kimonos with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

I love maxi dresses and I love kimonos, so it just makes sense to wear them together! I thought that these printed kimonos would be a nice touch with the plain maxi dresses, to add a little more fun to my outfits.

What I wore:

black halterneck jersey maxi dress Havaianas Somedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono | away from the blue

printed kimono, silver bracelet stack, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from blue

JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Feather pendant in peach (C/O)
Dressblack Jeanswest halterneck maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This is one of my most worn kimonos, but it's still not at 30 wears yet, this is only it's 26th wear! I'm hopeful I'll hit 30 wears on it by the end of the year, so you'll probably see it being worn a lot more often, just like I did with my purple cardigan when I was so close to 30 wears with it. Nice and comfortable outfit for a busy morning, taking Baby Boy for his weigh in session and getting my tax done and picking up groceries.

The only downside to this outfit was that it was a very windy day. I had so many issues trying to get a good photo, as the kimono kept getting caught in the wind!


Last worn: Somedays Lovin' kimono, black maxi dress, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Other ways to wearSomedays Lovin' kimono and denim shorts, black maxi dress and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC and pencil skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: printed kimono and maternity tankmaxi dress in third trimester, mini MAC in third trimester.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted Edited floral and bird print kimono
Necklace: Nibbly Bits BB plum silicone teething necklace (C/O)

ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

I grabbed this maxi dress, my favourite, out of my wardrobe to try break a bit of an outfit slump I was in after our Sydney trip. It always makes me feel good when I wear it.

In an effort to try change this up a little, I decided to try belting a kimono over it. I've belted things over it in pregnancy before so I figured I'd try the look without the bump. While I liked this in the mirror, I think it looks a little off in the photo as the belt slipped down. Was a nice and colourful, comfortable outfit for playgroup though. I really liked the colours with the pink dress, purple bag and blue kimono together.

Last worn: navy printed kimono, gold glitter belt, pink maternity maxi dress, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote bag.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono and shorts, gold glitter belt and little black dress, pink maxi dress for a first birthday party, studded sandals and black shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote bag and leopard print jeans.

Perfect for pregnancy: belted dress in second trimester, pink maxi dress at 39 weeks, studded sandals and maternity shorts, mini MAB tote in third trimester.




Printed Kimonos Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:

A printed kimono is a great layer with a plain maxi dress. It's perfect for spring or autumn, as kimonos are so lightweight. It's a nice way to add some extra colour or print to your outfit, and you can belt it to try something a little different too.

Just a casual shorts and singlet outfit for Friday! We didn't really get up to much. We relaxed and enjoyed the pool, and spent some time at home as a family. I made a start on some of the books I got for Christmas too - hopefully I'll be able to go back to work having finished at least one book (I currently have 3 on the go!).

I really like pink and blue together, so went with all pink accessories today!

This morning DH and I had to brave the shops after we had a minor miscommunication. We have a party coming up, and we were each under the impression that the other had organised the gift, when neither of us had. It wasn't as busy at the stores as I thought it would be, although there are certainly a lot of sales around. We ended up sticking to just getting what we needed, having lunch and getting home again. The pool was calling so I will have to spend my Christmas gift cards another time ;)

Have you shopped the post-Christmas sales in person yet?

Very casual outfit for a Monday, as I was working from home today. I'll probably be working from home a little more frequently in future, which is nice as it gives me a reason to wear the huge number of casual clothes in my wardrobe, and I get to spend more time with Cooper. He usually naps nearby when I'm on the computer :) Only left the house to take him a walk today, so this little cross body bag is all I needed to carry the essentials.

I wasn't planning to work from home on Monday, but Cooper got sick in the middle of the night and we had a very restless night. I decided to work from home to keep an eye on him, as my meetings were all teleconferences or virtual meetings. Thankfully, Cooper slowly improved during the day. Took him out for a bit of fresh air in the morning. As it was a little chilly for bare arms I added the scarf, added a nice bit of colour too. Did end up taking it off when I worked at the computer though.

Cooper is acting like himself again so back to work with a simple printed dress for the office! Of all of the office outfits I wear, printed dresses have to be the most comfortable and appropriate for any situation. I had a bunch of face to face meetings today so this was the easiest option :)

Had to do a bit of walking around Saturday morning as well as running a few errands so I decided to wear my Converse with one of my dresses. I really liked last time I tried that combination. Felt good in it, comfortable for walking but a good way to beat the heat in the sunshine. :) Wearing a dress instead of jeans was helpful when I went to the physio for my knee too, didn't have to change my clothes. After recently aggravating my old knee injury I'd been hoping it would heal over time, but when it wasn't getting any better it was time to call the experts, haha.

First day of Spring and Father's day today! We visited both of our families and dropped off the gifts that we bought at DFO last weekend. Wearing my Chucks again for comfort, and the tee is something I picked up for myself at DFO on our shopping trip, hehe! My knee is taped up for support after seeing the physio yesterday.

Nice casual outfit for Tuesday to work from home. I started early and worked late so that I could have an hour long lunch with my mum and sister. Was nice to get out of the house for a while, and Cooper enjoyed seeing them as much as I did :) Although it was a little windy as you can see in the picture, it was still warm enough in the sun to go without a jacket. Thanks to my sister for taking these pics and snapping a great one of Cooper, looks like he is laughing!

After the warm weather we have been having, being back to single digits was a bit of a shock. Even found myself wishing I'd worn a scarf too this morning. I thought the leather jacket over the chunky knit felt a little bulky, but it was too cold to consider going jacket-less today. Just want to be warm and comfortable :)
Have been wary in the past about wearing this pencil skirt with black, and tried to avoid it as much as possible. But when it went so well with my opaque tights last time I wore it, I was happy to pair the colours together again. It looks better than I thought it would. What do you think?

Nice relaxing Sunday. Had Church Online in the evening and spent some time outside with Cooper enjoying the sunshine during the day. Although it's still cold in the morning and evening, it's nice and warm during the day.

Just realised as I was looking up the last time I'd worn this bag that it's been getting a lot of wear lately! Should try use other bags on the weekends and mix it up a bit. It is perfect for weekends and errands though :)

Wanted something a little different from jeans and a tee today, so decided to wear my maxi skirt with boots. I really liked the colour of the jumper and skirt together, but walking around in the heat of the day I realised I probably could have just worn a tee, it wasn't that cold. Shame Cooper was all shy in front of the camera, he kept hiding behind me, haha. Nice day, relaxed and spent some time with mum.

Today we went to a local festival for a bit of a walk around. It was really good, nice to get out and enjoy the sun. I ended up taking my scarf off for a bit before the rain blew in as it was really humid. The local church had an op-shop so I went in for a brief look, and walked out with some nice new tops. Don't often score at thrift stores, so I was pleased I found two items! :) Especially pleased at the prices, $6 for a brand new Ben Sherman shirt!

Worked at Church Online in the evening. This is the final week we will be showing movies, so if you want to watch a free movie with us, click on through :) This weeks movie is a good one if you like animated movies. I didn't get to see this one in the cinemas, so happy I get to watch it online!

BagRebecca Minkoff MAC bag in deep purple



DH and I got a free lovely sunny day at last, so we headed down to the beach with Cooper. We walked out to King Island at low tide. You can see a pic of it I took during high tide on instagram. Although Cooper wasn't allowed on the island (it's a nature reserve) it was a fun walk out there, and he got to have a few paddles along the way. Sand covered little monster had bath time as soon as he got home though, haha.

Just a nice casual comfortable outfit for walking around, and of course I had church online in the evening.


Last worn: blue sunnies, Sass and Bide jeans, converse, RM purple MAC. First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase.

Woah, a lot of Marc By Marc Jacobs today, haha. And another new purchase! I bought a couple of dresses in the Leona Edmiston sale, and I picked them up from my tailor this weekend. They are always too long on me, but when I get them on super sale I don't mind paying a little extra to have them taken up to fit. Nice simple outfit for a Monday. Bit colder than yesterday though, I think a scarf would have been a useful addition.

Got my long-overdue haircut on Saturday and I'm still figuring out how to style it to be honest! The hairdresser always makes it look so easy and pretty in the salon. Wasn't an issue on Sunday as the sea air made it wavy and it didn't need any input on my part, haha.

We couldn't catch a later showing as I had church. We might try again next weekend!

This dress was another of my Jeanswest sale purchase from May.

I don't like paying full price for things ;) And since the temperature has dropped, the trench coat returns. It will be making frequent appearances this winter!

Greatly amused a lady who walked past Cooper and I today as she exclaimed "even the dog has a skeleton!". I hadn't noticed, but Cooper and I coordinated with our matching long sleeve skeleton bones tees.

Had the day off work today to relax and spend time with my mum. We headed up north to the beach to relax and chat, it was a great day. Of course it was windy on the beach, so crazy hair for photos, haha! I figured I'd put up with beach hair to have the 'excitement' of a different background ;)

Although it's winter, I'm still gonna be a real Queenslander and wear my thongs (flip flops) as long as possible! Nice casual outfit for walking along the beach and doing a spot of shopping, relaxed outfit for a relaxed day.
