Black Tanks, Shorts and Printed Scarves With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag: Spring SAHM Style

Shorts are a great option to beat the summer heat. When you want to add a little more interest to your outfit, you can always throw on a light scarf. Both of these Fashion Scarf Girl scarves are light viscose which makes them good layers to add. Of course if it's really hot and humid, you can wear a scarf a little differently like I have in the second outfit.

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've worn this scarf with olive! I really like navy and olive together. I thought the scarf was a cute completer piece to add to the outfit, as the black tank and olive shorts seemed a little flat. Last time I wore the tank and shorts together I added a kimono.

Despite the hot day, the scarf was a welcome addition as we spent some time in the aircon, trying to do a little more Christmas shopping at the local shopping centre. We ended up coming home empty handed, but with ideas for things to look at further, when we didn't have the boys with us.

Picked my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag to wear as it's a nice neutral that goes with everything and I felt it had been a while since I last wore it. A few months actually!

Last worn: French Connection tank, navy printed scarf, olive embroidered shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag.

Why I wore it:

Another basic black tank and shorts outfit dressed up with a scarf. While I did spend a little bit of the day in the aircon at the library with the boys, I felt it was a bit too hot and humid the rest of the day to wear the scarf as a scarf. So I improvised and wore it as a kimono! It's not the first time I've worn a scarf as a kimono, but it's probably my favourite way I've done so.

I think the pink leaf print was so pretty and a nice way to add interest to the plain outfit. Even if I did have to keep readjusting the scarf - this works a little better with square scarves instead of rectangular ones like this. Made it a nice light option for spending the day with the boys though.

Again, I stuck with the classic grey Rebecca Minkoff love bag as it really does go with everything!

How You Can Wear It:

A black tank is a wardrobe staple. In the warmer months, it looks great with shorts, from detailed embroidered pairs to basic denim ones. If the outfit feels a little plain, you can easily throw on a fun and colourful printed scarf. Draped loosely around your neck for a day spent in air conditioning, or tied as a kimono for a lightweight option on a day you're spending more time in the heat.

  1. I really enjoy olive and navy paired together as well - they're both such rick colours and I think they offset each other nicely (and I'm envious you can wear shorts - I've awoken to -17 degree temperatures and snow everywhere!).

  2. I had a similar pair of olive shorts and they were a FAVORITE last summer! So comfy and versatile! I also just got that same RM bag in a burgundy color and I LOVE it! It's the perfect compact size! Love the color you chose as well!

  3. I love the pattern of that first scarf! Both of these outfits are perfect for hot days!

  4. I LOVE how you styled your scarf as a kimono! That's brilliant, and it looks so lovely. Both of these outfits are beautiful!

    I hope you're having a wonderful week! :)

  5. I love how easily you've transformed your scarf into a kimono! That is so clever and a great way to wear it when you don't want something on your neck.

  6. The addition of the scarf and the kimono/shawl really elevate both outfits from the ordinary. That second outfit especially, looks great on you, Mica.

    Happy week, my dear!

  7. Awwh How much I love your style. I envy you can wear shorts. It is pretty cold in here for shorts . I love your Rebecca Minkoff bag along with your green and jeans shorts and the scarfs are just perfect pop of color

  8. A black tank is such a wardrobe staple as it's so versatile. Love both of your casual summer looks.

  9. These are both such fun looks and such pretty scarves! It's so funny to see shorts right now, just as I'm sure it's weird to you to see us Americans all bundled up, ha! I love that navy print scarf especially, it will go with so much!

  10. Both are super cute outfits as always:) As someone who hates super cold air con in the summer, I love how scarves like these can add a bit of warmth. Also love how you wore the scarf as a kimono on the second outfit! That's just brilliant:)

  11. Oh I love the embroidery on those shorts. And I have the same bag in pale lavender. I love it!

  13. Is that pink cover really a scarf? It looks like a kimono! So pretty! I hope you enjoy the rest of your week! ♥

  14. I have so many scarves and I always forget to wear them, I need to bring them to the front of my closet. I just love the scarf you wore as a kimono! I need to update my black tank to something not so worn this next Spring!


  15. I thought your scarf in the second outfit actually was a kimono! That is a great option for adding more versatility to your wardrobe!

  16. Like you I love wearing shorts when it is hot! And you are right - a scarf pimps such an outfit immediately up! And what a fantastic idea to wear a scarf as kimono like you did it in the second look!

  18. Crazy you're wearing shorts. It's going to snow here this weekend! Hope you're having a great Thursday!

  19. I really love the navy and olive together as well! It's a unique color scheme that looks great!

  20. That bag looks great with both outfits! I totally agree that a black tank is such a versatile summer wardrobe staple. I always carry a scarf in my bag in the summer so I won't freeze in places with strong air conditioning.

  21. This is making me miss summer! I love how you wore the second scarf as a kimono. That's something I'm going to try once it gets warm here. I hope you have a great rest of your week and stay cool!

  22. You really know how to add interest to outfits, Mica!! I love how you make shorts feel more stylish!!

  23. I am sitting here in a cardigan on top of my jumper and with a blanket over my knees - shorts are nothing but a distant memory! The combination looks pretty though.

  24. Both of these looks are great, but the second one is my favorite. It actually never occurred to me to wear a scarf as a kimono, but I love the idea. I'm definitely going to try it out in the summer or maybe even with a thicker scarf in the winter.

  25. Both looks are so cute! I love how you made the second scarf look more like a kimono!


  26. I like the way the scarf embellishes both of these fairly simple looks in a really pretty way!

  27. I love how you wear scarves, and you have such a pretty collection of them. Great summer outfits!
