Kmart Floral Dresses For Spring With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

Like every other Aussie mum, I can't resist a Kmart bargain! While the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag I'm wearing in these outfits is more of a splurge, I picked up the first floral dress on sale for just $12 and you're sure to recognise the second floral maxi dress as an old favourite - even full price it was just $25! These floral dresses are so perfect for our spring weather in Brisbane.

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

While I've shared this on the blog before, this was the first time I wore this beautiful floral mid dress. I decided to wear it with the new earrings I picked up in the Kmart clearance too, I liked the way the mustard looked with the teal of the dress! I kept the rest of the accessories neutral with my matchy-matchy tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. I loved how comfortable this dress was to wear, such a nice option to attend church.
I did hesitate buying this dress for a second because of the long sleeves - wasn't sure if I'd get much wear out of it this year with Brisbane having such a hot start to Spring so far! I do like wearing long sleeved dresses in summer for the extra sun protection though and this didn't feel too hot at all, was such a nice dress to wear on a warm spring day.
Last worn: teal floral midi dress, tan ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've worn the mustard tassel earrings as they are a recent purchase.
Other ways to wear: teal floral midi dress in the office, tan ankle boots and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and denim shorts.

Why I wore it:

This Kmart tiered tropical floral print maxi dress is an old favourite - an impulse buy a few years ago after seeing a bunch of Aussie Instagrammers wearing it, it's one I keep reaching for in my wardrobe. I'm surprised I haven't hit 30 wears with it yet! (This is wear number 16.) I've worn it with denim jackets before, as it's a spaghetti strap dress it's nice to have a little extra cover on a colder spring day with a jacket.
I wore this out for a celebratory dinner, we sold our old house, yey! We've been in this house we built for a few months but it took a little time to get our old place ready to sell and then listed and sold. A little sad, it was the house we bought just before our wedding and we moved in as husband and wife so lots of memories there - we lived there 10 years! But it was much too small as our family grew.
As it was predicted to rain and a little cooler, the denim moto jacket was an easy option with this dress, and I wore the gold mouse flats to keep my feet warm and dry on the walk from the car to the restaurant. With all the bold colour in the maxi dress, the neutral gold flats were an obvious choice.
I really liked the thrifted turquoise necklace with the coral dress, and it matched the colours in the print nicely. Unfortunately, while cuddling my son as we waited for dinner, he got a bit antsy and grabbed my necklace, and pulled. One of the strings snapped, showering beads everywhere! I managed to grab the string without having too many beads fly and tried to kind of repair it a little...a reminder that I need to pick more kid friendly, less delicate necklaces when I'm out with the boys! I'm glad the necklace will live on for another wear too, as long as my hastily tied knot holds, ha!
Last worn: denim moto jacket, turquoise beaded necklace, Kmart tropical coral maxi dress, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera bag (above).
Other ways to wear: denim moto jacket and shift dress, turquoise beaded necklace in the office, Kmart tropical coral maxi dress and kimono, gold mouse flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera bag and printed shorts.
Perfect for pregnancy: gold mouse flats in third trimester.

How You Can Wear It:

A bright floral dress is an obvious choice for spring, it's the perfect season for head to toe florals! You can keep things simple and let the dress be the star when paired with neutral accessories like the MAB camera bag, or add just a little extra colour with accessories like earrings in the first outfit or a statement necklace in the second outfit. Just remember to factor in grabby toddler hands if you're a mum, to prevent necklace destruction!
