Plain Tees, Floral Kimonos, Denim Shorts and Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag | Weekday Wear Linkup

Some casual weekday style for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup!

I extended my Christmas holidays from work into January. It gave me a lot more time at home with the boys, and we took advantage of the opportunity to try a different park to play at each day. I kept things simple for playground style: plain tees, denim shorts and fun kimonos for a little bit of sun coverage.

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Say hello to my new favourite kimono! This kimono was a Christmas gift from my mum, and one of those clothing pieces where you just pull it on and feel so happy with the outfit! Expect to see this popping up a lot more often on my blog. The pink beaded necklace added a little more colour to my outfit - it too was a Christmas gift from my mum. With the pink necklace, I added the pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag as well as the studded Balenciaga sandals. I like pink and purple together and though none of these shades of pink matched I thought that they all worked nicely together and with the floral kimono.

I really enjoyed this outfit - nice and simple for a day at the park.


Last worn: black scoop neck tee, Bermuda denim shorts, studded Balenciaga sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag. First time I've worn the kimono as it was a Christmas gift.

BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

After a few days in a row of spending time around all the local parks, I felt a needed a little more coverage from the sun so picked out another new floral kimono - this one also a Christmas gift from my mum. With the plain white tee and the black denim shorts it was a nice pop of colour. And with the blue in the floral print, I thought this necklace (also a new Christmas gift) was a nice finishing touch. I kept with the Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag as it compliments the colours in the flowers nicely.

We went to a new-to-me park that the boys have been to before, it has a big racing track for bikes and scooters which they had a wonderful time running around. I was glad I had the kimono for physical sunblock for my arms as there wasn't a lot of shade around.

Just like the first outfit, I stuck with gold shoes even though the bag has silver hardware - I figured that the metals were far enough apart from each other that they worked.


Last worn: white tee, black denim shorts, gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag (above). First time I've worn the necklace and kimono as they were Christmas gifts.

Floral Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is such a staple summer outfit, and so easy to change up a little when you add a bright printed kimono on top. These floral kimonos are lightweight so an ideal way to add an extra layer of interest and colour to your outfit without overheating you in the middle of summer! They work well as an extra bit of sun protection too.

  23. I have to say kimonos are perfect for the hot weather. So light and cool and a good way to cover up a bit if you are wearing fairly short shorts. You look so put together, the pops of color with the kimonos is just the right touch.
