Pink Tanks, Denim Shorts and Printed Scarves With Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

A simple bright tank and denim shorts is an easy summer staple outfit. For something a little different, I like to add some extra colour or print with accessories. A kimono, printed bag, or as I've worn here a printed scarf, is a fun extra touch to your outfit. Both of these scarves are lightweight and perfect for a milder summer day.

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This was an absolutely crazy day. Usually on a crazy busy day I'd stick with a comfortable tried and true outfit, but I decided at the last minute to try something a little different and add this pale pink leaf print scarf to the hot pink tank. While it was a hot day, it was a very windy one so the scarf was a great accessory to have. Particularly when the dust picked up.

I had to drive into the city for an appointment and it was an interesting drive - some of the remnants of the dust storm had reached Brisbane and everything was very hazy. Which lead to a lot of questions from the kids in the back seat about why the city was so 'misty'. And a very dirty car -  although I wore this back in November - like everyone else in Brisbane my car stayed covered in red dust for a few weeks!

With the pink on pink, the neutral Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag seemed like a good choice, and it held a few things I needed for the appointment. Perfect for running errands after too.

Why I wore it:

A  very similar outfit formula to the one above, again with a pink tank and denim shorts. I added this fun chicken and egg print scarf for a little extra interest with the otherwise plain outfit. Unlike the day above, this was a much more relaxed day with the boys. We headed out to the library for rhyme time and then stopped at a few stores on the way home to run some errands. Being in aircon for most of the day, the scarf was a good extra layer to stop it feeling too chilly in the shopping centre.

How You Can Wear It:

A plain tank and denim shorts is such an easy summer staple outfit. If you want to change things up a little between wears, try throwing on a cute scarf for some extra interest to your outfit. If it's a cooler summer day or you're spending a lot of time in the aircon it will make you a little warmer too! Light fabrics like viscose are best for scarves you want to wear in summer.




Hope you have a very happy new year! I will be spending it as I usually do since having kids, exhausted and asleep in bed missing welcoming in the new year! 😂

  3. I am wearing scarves daily too, but for completely opposite reasons. It is cold and wet and miserable here.

  4. A lot of the books I've read that have taken place in Australia mention the wind & dust a lot, so it's interesting to see you mention it here too. I guess it's a real thing and not just fiction! Anyway, you look great in pink! Both of these tops are really flattering on you, and as usual I love your RM bag. :)

  6. I tend to wear scarves only in the colder months, but seeing you wear them in the summer is really such a great idea. I always get cold when the malls blast their A/Cs during summer, and adding a scarf would really help! You look so great in pinks:)
    Have a Happy New Year to you and your family, Mica. God bless:)

  7. I rarely wear scarves in the summer, but if they are lightweight, it's smart. Especially when you go into air conditioned places!!
    Happy New Year, Mica!!

  8. No wonder you got that many questions from the back seat! Sorry for the dirty car but I like your outfit and I think it was finally a good choice for that day. Like you I love a tank top with shorts when it is hot and therefore I like also your 2nd look!
    Have a healthy and wonderful New Year!

  14. I love the pops of pink in each outfit! Both scarves are really cute and once it gets warm here I'm going to need to remember to wear some more often since air conditioning makes some places so cold. I hope you have a wonderful new year and wishing you and your family all the best in 2019!

  17. Both outfits are wonderful. I love how you matched two shades of pink in the first outfit. Lovely pink scarf.

    I really like the second scarf as well. great shorts as well. Wind can be tricky to dress for, especially warm wind but you seem to manage well.

    Yay for adding scarves to up your game... have you done a CPW with scarves?

    1. Thanks Lorena! Happy new year! :) No, I haven't done a CPW for scarves yet! Most are around the $10-15 mark so they'd be about $1 per wear, but I have some very exxy ones that would have high CPW!

  31. The bright pink is such a fun color, I don't think I've worn in quite some time! The dust storm sounds crazy, hope it's all settled now!
