Printed Tees and Denim Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

With the summer heatwave back in January, shorts and a tee were all I could face wearing! Of course I tried to make the outfits a little different by wearing printed tees and adding some accessories: long tassel necklaces and a neutral Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Why I wore it:

I was excited to get in my first wear of this new tee that I thrifted recently for just $1! I've been hunting for a good opshop after my local go-to closed down, and while this one is further away, $1 per item of clothing is my kind of opshop. This was a Kmart tee, fairly recent I think, maybe last spring, so it wouldn't have cost much more new.

Ordinarily I'd worry that shorts and a tee were too casual for a specialist appointment (especially with this doctor, she is impeccably stylish!) but it was too hot to contemplate anything other than shorts and a tee. With the black blobs in the print I thought the black denim shorts were the obvious choice, with the tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and gold sandals to accessorise with. As I had the gold hardware on the bag and gold shoes and the pink on the tee, this pink tassel necklace that has a few gold beads spaced through the chain was the ideal finishing touch.

Was comfortable and cool in this all day - from the playground with the boys in the morning, the appointment, and then lunch and working with my mum on something in the afternoon.


Last worn: pink tassel necklace, black denim shorts, rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

This day was a quieter day but again I stuck to the same outfit formula. They are the best. When you're not sure what to wear, think back to something you liked to wear and repeat it, changing a couple of things if you want the outfit to feel 'new'. I wanted something easy because as you can tell from my hair the heat and humidity was bad on this day!

I picked a striped tee to wear this time, and as it had navy stripes decided on the blue denim distressed shorts to wear. I really liked the MAB camera bag and rose gold sandals together in the first outfit, so I repeated that outfit combo again, but I picked a turquoise tassel necklace to accessorise with this time instead of the pink one.

For another point of difference, I added the Fashion Scarf Girl hair scarf on my wrist. I thought with the stripes on the top it might have been a little too much to wear in my hair, but it worked perfectly on my wrist. I've worn it on my wrist before.

Simple shorts and striped tee summer outfit, for a morning out with the boys. A couple of errands, a trip to the library and playground and grabbing some groceries on the way home.

Printed Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is a summer staple - wherever you are in the world! A great fall-back outfit for a summer heatwave, it's easy to change things up slightly by wearing a fun printed tee instead of a plain one. If you're adding colour and print to your outfit with your top, you can stick with neutral accessories to compliment whatever print or colours you are wearing. Metallic sandals go with everything, and so does a neutral bag.

  1. That first tee is so cute, Mica! What a great deal for $1! The tassel necklace complements your tee so well! I love how you've worn your scarf on your wrist in the second outfit. So pretty! I love those metallic sandals and your neutral bag. They really do go with everything! Hope you have a great weekend, Mica! XXX

  2. That tee is such a score for $1 - wow! Even though it is technically winter here the temps have been in the high 80s so your outfit would be a perfect option for me! I hope you have a great weekend Mica!

  3. I think your top look is pretty chic for a meeting with a specialist - and I can't imagine how you'd manage in much else in a heat wave!

  5. Shorts and a tee are my go-to summer uniform too. You sound like me in analyzing what to wear to a doctor's appointment! I do usually try to level up my outfits for those too. Everyone else just looks so professional there I don't like looking out of place!

  10. I know the heat can really put a damper on your style when it is really hot you just don't want to be bothered and add humidity and it is even worse. Here in NY we get super humid summers, last summer was horrendous everyone was complaining. Then we get deep freeze winters though this winter has not been bad. Almost no snow.

    And wow a $1 for that tee? What a find!

  13. That first tee was such a great deal! The abstract design is really pretty and it looks great with the black shorts. Wearing a printed tee and shorts is one of my go-to's in the summer and I'm excited to wear it again once it gets warm here. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Mica!

  14. I think I might have mentioned this before, but you really do suit shorts, Mica. I used to wear a lot of shorts in Summer when I was in my early 30s, and even wore a dressy short suit for my sister's wedding as I loved wearing them so much! That first tee was an amazing find for $ 1, and I love both tasseled necklaces and your metallic sandals. I'm looking forward to wearing mine again ... Have a wonderful weekend! xxx

  17. I love that first outfit - you're really showing that shorts + tee don't have to equal boring or sloppy. Both outfits are very classy and stylish without looking overly casual. Have a lovely weekend!

  18. I love outfit formulas too. They're so easy to slip into without having to worry too much about what you're grabbing. I especially like the idea of wearing the scarf on your wrist. I'm definitely going to have to try that out.

  19. A staple for weekends when it is hot here too, it is just so easy and comfortable. I am not sure if I will be able to wear it much longer, after the recent operation my right leg is covered in scars.

  24. OMG! It was obviously really hot in your region and I understand that you decided on that hot days to wear only shorts and a tee! Nevertheless, you look both times fabulous and the tee you got for that low price is super amazing! When it is hot I love also wearing shorts and tee btw - but currently it is still much too cold in Bavaria for such combinations as we still have snow :)

  32. I really like both outfits. The first one is adorable on you, I love the print on that t-shirt. The second one is very stylish as well, I like how you tied that scarf around your hand, that's such a nice way to accessorize. You look great in both of these outfits.

    p.s. That bag is super pretty!!!
