Yellow Tees and Navy Floral Kimonos With Balenciaga First Bag

Blue and yellow is a colour combination I really like to wear, so I decided to wear both of these navy floral kimonos with a yellow tee and shorts. A simple yet colourful summer outfit!

What I wore:

JacketJeanswest Melanie floral kimono (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
TeeJeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow (new purchase)
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bag: Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

I picked up the yellow tee and the floral kimono in the Jeanswest buy one get one free sale after Christmas. I was eager to use a gift card I got for Christmas, and since the $80 kimono was reduced to $39.99 I paid for that and got the $30 tee for free! Pretty good deal. The two pieces also go so nicely together I knew I had to wear them together for the first wear!

The navy tassel necklace matched the base of the floral kimono perfectly, and I thought the Balenciaga first bag complimented the colours in the kimono well too. The olive shorts were a comfortable choice and an attempt to introduce even more colour. I really liked this outfit! I've had mixed success in the past with a slouchy tee along with these loose soft shorts, but I think the long line of the duster kimono made this really work.

Nice and colourful outfit for a day spent with my sister checking out a few stores and spending more Christmas gift cards! We picked up some cute Christmas decorations for next year too, and I bought another kimono at Jeanswest.... 😂


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, olive soft shorts, Havaianas. First time I've worn the bag as it was a Christmas present and first time I've worn the yellow tee and floral kimono as they are recent purchases.

My Balenciaga Bag Christmas Present:







What I wore:

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bag: Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above. It's not the first time I've worn yellow with this navy floral kimono, I really liked the combination when I tried it in the past but I wasn't entirely convinced this time. I was going to wear blue denim shorts but changed my mind to these white shorts at the last moment to match the white in the floral print of the kimono. After looking at the photos though I think that blue denim might have been better.

Even the matchy-matchy with the Balenciaga first bag and the turquoise tassel necklace, which I did like, I wasn't 100% happy with this outfit looking at the pics. I don't hate it, it just doesn't look as good as the one above I don't think! Was comfortable for a morning running errands and having friends over in the afternoon though.


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, turquoise tassel necklace, mustard yellow tee, white Bermuda denim shorts, Havaianas (above), Balenciaga first bag (above).

Perfect for pregnancyfloral cocoon kimono in third trimester.



Yellow Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Yellow tees are so fun and cheerful to wear! You can match them to something else you're wearing like I have in the first outfit, with the pastel yellow tee matching the floral print in the kimono, or you can contrast it like the navy florals and the mustard tee in the second outfit.

  8. You're the Queen of Kimonos, Mica, and I'm loving both of them in equal measure. Still, my favourite outfit is the second one, as the mustard tee and turquoise tasseled necklace provide such a nice contrast to the navy kimono! Wishing you a most wonderful weekend xxx

  16. I also like the combination of yellow and blue. The combination of a yellow tee and green shorts in the first look is very pretty too. I also like the touches of blue with the tassel necklace, a bag and a kimono. The second look with bermuda shorts, a kimono and a light blue tassel necklace is very stylish too. Lovely outfits. You look fresh and pretty.

  17. I do like both of the looks but I love the first one. All three of the colors are perfect together and I'm loving that kimono. The second one is pretty but doesn't have quite the punch of the first one. I do love the white bermudas with that tee shirt. And the kimono is beautiful. Maybe a lighter-colored kimono with that set or maybe denim bermudas. It's a good look, anyway, and it looks great on you. And I love your tassel necklaces - I really need to find one!
