Balenciaga Sorbet Pink City Bag & How To Wear Kimonos With Printed Tanks

I knew this summer would be the summer of shorts after I bought so many new pairs back in November. There's something so easy about pulling on a pair of denim shorts and adding a printed tank. Despite the busy prints on both of these Sass and Bide tanks, I found kimonos to wear with them.

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

Wasn't too sure about wearing a kimono with this top, as it has a pretty bold print on it already with touches of neon. Wanted to try wear it a little differently though, so decided to try this lace kimono with it. It worked well I thought, I was pleasantly surprised and I really enjoyed wearing this!

We had a day full of errands, nothing really exciting, just the library and a few stores. I still wanted to wear this tank though as it's been such a long time since I last wore it. 10 months! I tend to save this top for 'special' occasions, and I've really been trying to question that lately and wear more of what I own. Got to try hit that 30 wears number!

With the pink in the tank I went with a pink bag. Although the sorbet Balenciaga city doesn't match exactly, it's a nice colour combination. I liked the layered necklaces with this too.

Why I wore it:

Another summer day with the boys, another denim shorts outfit! I loved my shorts over summer, and with the heat here in Brisbane I can wear them into autumn too. This tank is one of my favourites, every time I wear it I say it's been too long between wears and that I should wear it more often. Once again I really enjoyed wearing it!

Ended up going for the plain white kimono to wear with this tank, adding colour through the pink Balenciaga city bag again and the blue bead necklace. I liked this outfit, it was casual and comfortable for playgroup in the morning and a doctor's appointment in the afternoon.

Lace or Crochet Kimonos Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:


You can still wear kimonos if you're wearing a printed tank! A good idea is to stick with neutrals like cream or white. Neutral doesn't mean boring though, as you can see with the textures on the kimonos. The first geometric print tank is paired with a lace kimono. WIth the second, the all white kimono has a fun crochet detail on the back and along the hems.

  9. I love wearing kimono's, they are easy to style and practical. They even fit well under a coat or jacket and keep you warm. I really like your last kimono and it works really well.

  11. what a gorgeous bag! I love bags like that one. Sorbet pink is such an eye-catching shade.

    I love both outfits. A summer of shorts sounds good to me.:) Glad to hear you're enjoying warm weather, here it is still cold, but I'm sure that spring will come any time now. How's your voice?

    The first is really cute, love the way you paired that colourful top with a kimono. I don't think that top is too much and besides it matches the bag well. Nice necklace as well.

    The second outfit is lovely as well. These kind of neutral colours are always a good choice.

  20. The sorbet pink City is so pretty! See how that rhymes? Ha ha! I always fell in love with the colours they did a while back. It's odd that I only own black and brown!

  29. That bag looks fantastic with both outfits! Having some plain colored kimonos as options are wonderful, especially when you want to pair them with printed tops! I have one printed kimono I've paired with a tank with a small print last summer that I loved. There are so many great options! I hope you are feeling better and have your voice back soon!

  32. I've gained quite the collection of kimonos since the discovery of your blog, but I have to say I do not have a white one yet. Seems like it's a pretty big staple. I may have been swayed. (;
