Foil Polka Dot Tops and Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC and Micro Regan Bags

I really have a foil print obsession this year! It's not the first time I've posted about foil print pieces with shorts!

I'm loving the trend, it's been around for a couple years here in Australia and you see it a lot on cute knits for winter. Being in Brisbane, I don't need a lot of winter knits, so I've been snapping up foil print tees too. Below I'm wearing two of my polka dot foil print pieces, with shorts because the first few weeks of autumn in Brisbane were quite warm.

What I wore:

TopJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver (new purchase)
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I bought this top back in February when it started getting a little cooler, Then the heatwaves hit and continued into autumn, and weeks later I'm finally giving it a wear!

Being completely honest, while it was nice and cool in the morning, in typical Brisbane style it was hot and sunny in the afternoon and I ended up taking this off! It was nice to wear it for a little bit though, and take it off to just wear a tee when it got too warm. I'm looking forward to wearing it more, probably will be winter before I get a chance to!

The knit top and denim shorts combo is actually something that came up from the monthly purchase video I did - I bought both of these in the same month (although the shorts have been worn a lot more!) and so I modelled them together for the video. I really liked the combination, so it seemed like the perfect outfit for the first wearing of this beautiful knit.

Decided to add just a little colour with the mustard yellow Micro Regan bag - I like grey and mustard together so I'm sure I'll wear this combination more often.


Last worn: boyfriend denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan. First time I've worn the knit jumper as it's a recent purchase.

Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

It's been a while since I last wore these pink shorts, so they were due another wear! I seem to have the worst track record with keeping them clean, always spilling something on them. I'd been thinking about upgrading my denim jacket and buying a white one, but my inability to keep these pastel pink shorts clean is putting me off, haha! Thankfully they were spill free this time.

Just a casual outfit to do the daycare drop off / pick up and work from home with a specialist appointment to take my son to in the afternoon.

I like pink and blue together so the navy polka dot foil tee worked perfectly with the pastel pink. The aquamarine mini MAC was another nice little touch of colour. Although the foil polka dots are gold and the chain hardware is silver I think that they looked okay together, especially with the turquoise stone in the necklace.


Last worn: polka dot tee, pink shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

How You Can Wear It:


Foil printed pieces add a little extra sparkle to a classic shorts outfit and is a nice way to make a casual outfit feel a little dressier. There are so many different foil print tops around, it's easy to find one that works for you, from a tee for warmer weather or a knit for colder weather. If you want to make your stay at home mum outfits feel a little more pulled together, wearing tops with extra details like foil print is an easy way to do so.

  3. It's like that here where it's really cool in the mornings, and then warms up. It's almost like you need two outfits for the day (which would help my buy to wear ratio of clothes if I totally switched outfits...ha ha).
    I love how your purses in these outfits really pop with color Mica!!
    We had the craziest winds yesterday---it even blew off parts of a roof downtown at the opera house.....eeeek!!

  4. Both of these tops are so cute! I think this time of year we might be experiencing some weather overlap for once instead of being in opposite seasons! Our weather is warming up and yours is cooling down so we're meeting in the middle! Ha!

    1. I don't like tying knits around my waist as I'm worried about stretching them out :( Although you're right, they would be lovely together! :)

  9. I love the foil dots on both pieces, they're such a fun detail that make the pieces feel a little special. I love that gray sweater especially, although it sounds like your weather isn't letting you wear it! Once again, our weathers need to swap, ha! :)

  17. Hi! The foil print adds the perfect amount of shine to both looks. Great layering piece under a blazer or coat as well! The pink shorts are cute but I agree lighter fabrics are a magnetic for stains:)

    Have a blessed rest of the week!

  25. I do love polka dot tees! And yes foil print is becoming so trendy this season. I do get the hassle with ligh pink clothes! I have the same issue whether it’s shorts or dresses! I don’t even know when and it’s covered in stains!

  34. I have always loved a foil print and remember being devastated in the early 00s when my favourite hot pink tee with foil dragon was destroyed in the wash and all the foil came off! I think the technology must have improved since and hurray for that. I'll be keeping an eye out for more foil knits this year as well.
