Foil Print Tees With Shorts and Studded Sandals

While I do like changing things up a little with my outfits and wearing dresses or skirts and adding kimonos and layers, sometimes you just want a casual and comfortable shorts and tee outfit. Both of these tees have some foil detailing on them, which makes them a little more sparkly and makes me feel a bit more pulled together.

What I wore:

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeJeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

For a hot and humid day I wanted some light pieces to wear, and these fun soft shorts are perfect. I frequently wear these printed shorts with stripes, I love the print mixing combination. With the white in the print of the shorts, the white tee seemed like a good idea, following the 'wear the same colour in both prints' rule for print mixing.

After grabbing some groceries, we headed out to our local ABA group catch up. We had a change of venue which meant I felt brave enough to wear white around the boys, as they spent all their time running around on the playground. It was nice as it gave me a chance to have a chat without constant interruptions. The main topic of conversation was the humid weather of course!

With the silver foil stripes on the tee, the metallic silver mini MAC seemed like the obvious choice. I've worn the tee and bag together before, it's a nice matchy-matchy combination.

BagBalenciaga regular Pompon bag in Murier

Why I wore it:

I felt like it had been a while since I last wore this tee, so it was overdue a wear again. Just over 3 months, even though I still feel this is a relatively new purchase in my wardrobe! It's such a soft tee, so perfect for a quiet morning with the boys. We had a very quick browse in the opshop where I picked up some winter clothes for them, then we went to playgroup.

This bag is a recent addition to my wardrobe, you can see the reveal video above. It's a Balenciaga pompon in murrier and I think the lilac purple looks great with blue, I've worn it that way before too. Such a nice colour.

This is the 30th wear of these shorts so stay tuned for another 30 ways to wear post coming next week!

Foil Tees Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:


On a warm day, you can't beat a shorts and tee combo for an easy outfit. It's perfect for running around with toddlers. Shorts and a tee doesn't have to be boring though, picking printed pieces like a striped or polka dot tee or printed shorts can add some extra interest. Foil print takes that one step further and brings a little shimmer to your outfit, which keeping the practicality and easy of a simple shorts and tee combination.




This post all about foil tees is a good time to share my monthly purchases. Just one thing this month, another foil tee. I think I have an addiction! 😂 How could you resist this though?!

  1. I like the first outfit best,especially as it's so perfect for the warmer weather where you are (still in single digits in Wales but there we are haha). The sandals have a nice design to them as well,and I'm not usually a big fan, but I'd definitely see myself styling something similar haha.

  7. Can't go wrong with stripes and polkadots. And foil how fun! I have a tee similar to this. It is still pretty cold here. But the heat and humidity is on its way. Can't say I am looking forward to the humidity though warm days would be nice.

  29. It must be summer over there! You are right sometimes a simple tee and shorts combo is IT and I love that you kept it casual and comfy in these outfits. As for the studded sandals, I am a HUGE fan of anything studded and those are really pretty :) We are having a hot spell over here and this sandal style is what everyone wears! I am still on a hunt for one that is cute :D x

  33. I love both of these outfits. The first one is so cute with that subtle print mix. The stripe print on that tshirt is so pretty and I like how it looks with those shorts. Nice you had the chance to chat a little while they boy played in the park- I can imagine that humid weather can be tiresome.

    The second outfit is very pretty as well. I like the polka dot print tshirt and the shorts are really perfect. Fabulous Balenciaga bag!

  40. There's something about a foil print that just gives it that little extra to lift an outfit. I have a couple from Target last year that do just that . . . I'm just as comfortable but I look like I've made more effort!!

    1. Yes! I love the comfort factor while feeling like you look a little more pulled together! I have to stop buying foil pieces now, I have an obsession, haha!

  41. Soft tees are the best! For some reason, I've been hesitant to embrace the foil stripe/polka dot trend, but I love it on everyone else!
