Weekday Wear Linkup: Wrap Tops and Pencil Skirts With Balenciaga Day Bags

For today's weekday wear I'm wearing some wrap tops that haven't been worn in a while with pencil skirts and statement necklaces for an easy office outfit.

What I wore:

Necklace: Oxfam Noah's Ark green red beaded necklace
Top: Atmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
Skirt: Atmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
Shoes: Walnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
Bag: Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2019 tempete

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this navy wrap top with a grey pencil skirt, I really like navy and grey together! To change it up a little I added some different accessories. This green and red beaded statement necklace is a firm fave and while I do wear it at other times through the year it seems so perfectly festive for December, being so close to Christmas! I wasn't sure if the leopard print flats would be too much with this given the necklace was already enough of a statement, but I ended up really liking it when I tried it.
The tempete Balenciaga day bag is the perfect mix of blue and grey so seemed like the obvious choice to wear with this
Last worn: navy wrap top, green and red necklace, grey jersey pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Day

Necklace: thrifted magenta pink statement beaded necklace ( new purchase)
Tee: Atmos&Here Nile wrap front jersey tee
Skirt: Warehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bag: Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Followed the same blue and grey colour scheme as the first outfit for this one, just with a single brighter colour in my accessories. I thought the basic grey wrap top was a nice neutral to pair with the jacquard pencil skirt and I really like the way the magenta pops against it!
This recently thrifted necklace was one I couldn't pass by in the opshop when I was in looking for Christmas books for our advent calendar. I knew it would be the perfect match with this magenta Balenciaga day bag and I love the way they look together!
Last worn: grey wrap top, jacquard pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag. First time I've worn the necklace as it was a recent purchase.
Other ways to wear: grey wrap top and jeans, jacquard pencil skirt in winter, silver ballet flats and printed dress, Balenciaga magenta day bag and maxi skirt.
Perfect for pregnancy: jacquard pencil skirt in first trimester, silver ballet flats in third trimester, Balenciaga magenta day bag in third trimester.

Wrap Tops Under $50:


How You Can Wear It:

A simple wrap top is a nice twist on a basic and works well in the office when you need to be a little more dressed up. They are great with pencil skirts! I bought both of these wrap tops for easy breastfeeding as they have a snap to hold them in place. It makes them simple to wear at work as they don't gape open. You could always layer a tank underneath if your top doesn't have a modesty snap.
