Denim Shorts Outfits! #ShareYourShorts

Summer shorts outfits! I had this post scheduled and then I came across the Mystery Case #ShareYourShorts summer challenge on instagram thanks to the lovely KimbaLikes. A very fitting post to have lined up. Shorts are a wonderful summer (and spring!) option. I am definitely a shorts fan, one of my pregnancy wardrobe essentials was my Jeanswest maternity shorts!

Here's what I wore to run some errands:
Jeanswest denim shorts printed tank house of harlow sunburst necklace
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
TankJeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
ShortsJeanswest black denim cuff shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine

I really liked this outfit! I just love this top, despite only having worn it three times before . Although I can't remember what outfit I had in mind, I do remember being just a smidgen upset when the growing baby bump meant I couldn't wear this tank one day during my pregnancy. It lead to a "I have nothing to wear" rant/meltdown, fuelled by pregnancy hormones and being overemotional! My wardrobe was fun to play in, but also a bit challenging when pregnant. This top ended up buried at the back of my wardrobe and got a little bit forgotten as the bump grew even bigger. I was happy to find it and pull it out again post-baby, as it didn't get a good run when I first bought it last year.

Didn't have anything special planned for the day, I just had to pick up a few things at Woolies quickly in the morning, and then had some tradies round at the house. We are trying to get quotes for some work, which is taking longer than usual as I try to schedule things around baby T's unpredictable nap times. Thought this necklace was nice with the top to add an extra little bit of interest. It didn't stay on long though, took it off when we got back home after the grocery run.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, printed tank, denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Here's what I wore to spend the day with my mum:
Spring Denim Shorts Outfit Stripes Ankle Boots Skull Scarf Alexander McQueen
ScarfAlexander McQueen skull scarf in light blue
TopAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Shorts: Jeanswest printed denim shorts
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"

The day I wore this the weather was so weird. It had been really hot and humid for days, then the rain came in to cool things off quite a bit. I wasn't sure if it would heat up later so I ended up with the rather strange combo of shorts, a tee, scarf and boots. My reasoning was that it would not be hot enough for the boots to be a silly choice, I could just take off the scarf if I got too warm.

Of course, boots were a silly choice as the day ended up being just as humid as every other day that week....but I was able to take the scarf off! Colour-wise it was a good outfit at least, I do love blue. Spent the day with my mum, we had lunch and picked up a few last minute things for a party on the weekend. No bag, I just carried everything I needed in the baby bag.

Last worn: skull scarf, striped tee, printed denim shorts, Acne Pistol boots.

Don't forget that the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are on many websites at the moment! I'm frequently updating the Sales and Discounts page over the weekend with the latest sales, and I've included a few below. Happy shopping!
