Two Ways To Wear White Bermuda Denim Shorts: Weekday Wear Linkup!

Wearing some new-to-me shorts for today's Weekday Wear link up! I wore these after Christmas in two different ways, bright and colourful with some new Christmas presents I got, and sticking to a monochrome black and white outfit for the second time I wore them.

I was hunting in the opshops in December for a Christmas tree skirt, and having no luck I browsed some of the other racks. I was so surprised to see these white Bermuda denim shorts in my size for just $6, so of course I got them! It's rare to find denim in my size, and I'd been thinking about white shorts for a while. With two dogs at home and two toddler boys I'm still not sure white shorts are the wisest choice, but for $6 I was willing to give it a try.


What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | awayfromtheblue

JacketCotton On Alana Wanderlust kimono in floral mood indigo
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts (new purchase)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

After a relaxing boxing day at home, we needed to get a few more groceries. We always go through bread so quickly after Christmas, making sandwiches with all the leftover ham and chicken! I convinced hubby that we should head to our local Westfield to maybe checkout the sales as well as getting more groceries.

It was a good excuse to wear some of my new Christmas presents too! I love the way this raspberry tee works with the blue kimono, and the necklace was the perfect accessory. I stuck with the neutral white Bermuda shorts and tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out all the colour.

I didn't buy too much in the sales, but did pick up a couple of things at Jeanswest as it was buy one get one free on all the sale pieces. I was also thrilled to keep these shorts free of spills or grubby toddler hands or fluffy paws! A successful stain-free first wear!


Last worn: Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. The shorts were a new purchase and the kimono, tee, and necklace were Christmas presents.

Other ways to wearRebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and orange cami.

Earrings: Colette statement tortoise shell acrylic oval drop earrings
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

The next time I wore these white shorts I kept it simple and monochromatic with the black striped tank. Even picked a little black bag as well, this Amerii straw circle bag was perfect. The fun tortoise shell necklace has matching earrings too and I thought the print would be a cute touch with the striped tank. It's a shame that the earrings don't show up so well against my hair in the pictures though! I liked the matchy-matchy with them and the necklace.

Did a little bit of shopping (and checked out the Kmart clearance sale) while hubby was running errands. We also finally managed to watch Love Actually while the kids were at kindy! We'd been watching a lot of Christmas movies and family movies over the break so I never felt like staying up late to watch a grown up movie once the kids were in bed. It's my favourite movie though and so perfect for Christmas time, even if we did watch it a little late!


Last worn: striped tank, Bermuda denim shorts (above), Havaianas, straw circle bag. First time I've worn the earrings and necklace as they are Christmas presents.

Other ways to wear: striped tank and purple jeans, straw circle bag and maxi skirt.

How You Can Wear It:

White shorts are a great outfit base for anything - they work well with prints and you can also go all out wearing bright colours on top as they are a wonderful neutral to accompany lots of colour.

  7. These shorts look great on you, Mica! One trick I learned with wearing white with 2 young boys is to put it on and forget that I am wearing it! Also, kimonos are great because they can cover up any spots of dirt that you may attract throughout the day. Now if I could figure out how to style Bermuda shorts so they look this cute on me!

  33. Love your Bermuda shorts, Mica I think they are essential item for our Australian summer. The raspberry tea is a very nice gift and looks lovely next to the white shorts. The beauty about white clothes is that you can always bleach it without ruining the coluor

  41. I think white shorts are easier to keep clean than white pants just because there is less material to spill on! Haha! But in all seriousness, those shorts are a great deal! You will get lots of wear with them!

  42. I am not ready to think about shorts yet but you sure are rocking yours!! Great fit and great length. Kept hearing about Boxing Day but didn't know the origin of that holiday so looked it up!! Such fun.
    You have the cutest bags. Of course, the Balenciaga is gorgeous but I think that little camera bag and the black bag are darling, too!! I need to up my purse game. Never really think much about them and they can make such a difference.

  53. I love those white bermuda shorts. I am a huge thrifter, and am dying for the coming summer. Mainly because I started thrifting jeans that Im planning on making into bermuda shorts. I love cutting, ripping, and I even bring out my sander to get the perfect distressed look.
