Denim Shorts, Kimonos and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Cross Body Bag In Magenta

Although it's autumn in Brisbane, summer outfits can continue for a while before the really cold weather arrives! Simple tanks, printed kimonos and shorts with a cute colourful Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag are such easy stay at home mum outfits.

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, I thought all of the colours worked so well together. While the dominant colour in this printed kimono is purple, it has a bunch of other colours in it. I couldn't resist adding more colour with this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. A neutral navy tank and blue denim shorts were an easy pairing with the rest of the colour. And then a blush necklace, for another little extra touch of colour.

Just a quiet day, doing the daycare drop off and pickup and working from home, before taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Such a comfortable outfit for that. I did wish I had picked a different tank in the afternoon heat though - this one is an old breastfeeding one, it's layered with hidden access for breastfeeding and on a hot day layered tops are not the best! Such a cute basic tank though, I'm still keeping it around long after finishing breastfeeding as you wouldn't know just by looking at it that it's a special piece.


Last worn: blush tassel necklace, purple printed kimono, navy tank, boyfriend denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Why I wore it:

Another outfit with the same formula! A metallic tank this time, black denim shorts and a navy printed kimono. Again with the same magenta Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag as, just like in the first outfit, I love how the magenta works with navy.

Didn't like this outfit as much as the one above though - even with swapping the Havaianas for studded sandals, this outfit just felt a bit plain. Was nice and simple for a day with the kids though, doing our usual playground and library routine with a couple of errands to run too.

How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos aren't just a summer staple! They are an easy layer to add to a simple tank and shorts outfit for a little more colour and interest on milder spring and autumn days too.

  1. It is just about kimono season here and I wear them almost daily. They are the perfect topper for my shorts. I honestly wear them for a little extra coverage and I just love the style they add to any casual outfit. I love this one Mica and that tassel necklace!
    Have a wonderful weekend friend!

  2. I just love your kimonos, Mica! Both of them are such pretty colours and look great worn over tops and paired with shorts. Your accessories are fab too and the colour of your new bag is so pretty! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Mica! Hopefully we don't get any bad storms again! ;) XXX

  3. I really love how that richly coloured kimono picks up and augments all the other colours in your first outfit - and that you've repurposed a breast feeding top for regular wear!

  11. Oooh I love that RM! I brought the Jean the other week and was tossing between the two. To be honest I am not a massive fan of it, mostly because of the inner compartments being too stiff. Been regretting that purchase so much now, even more after seeing your Edie. Damn.

  16. I love this combination. It's a great way to add some pizzazz to shorts and t-shirts. I think the second outfit looks nice, Mica...the purse adds some pop of color to it.

  17. Your posts inspire me to try out new outfits. I like to wear kimonos but don't wear them as often. Love your choices and your looking lovely as always. I drool over your purses. Have a great weekend my friend:-)

  18. I love both outfits, Mica. Even the second one is pretty cute. That magenta bag is such a nice accessory. And thanks for the review. I love the colour. I do have a big wallet though so it probably won't fit in there, but as you said, with a smaller wallet, it's great for day-to-day items. And I love that the handle can be changed from shoulder to cross body so easily:)

  26. I agree magenta works indeed fantastic with navy! I understand why you loved the first outfit so much - so sorry only that the tank turned out a bit warm in the afternoon. Another perfect outfit formula!

  27. I know that I say this every time, but I love your kimonos so much--the patterns and colors are always so pretty! And I love that that RM bag is named "Edie"! Not only is that my cat friend Calico Pinky's real name (ha!), I think it's just a super cute name and def have it in mind as a hypothetical daughter name! :)

  30. Such gorgeous outfits on you dreamy Mica! I adore the kimono, the purple against your magenta bag is to die for. The blush pink and gold tassel necklace is oh so enchanting too whilst making such a stunning statement. I adore the navy vibes in your second outfit, the studded sandals are so divine. The print of the kimono is so lovely and the magenta works so wondrously with both looks. I hope you've had a magical weekend and have a wonderful week up ahead! ♥︎
