Accessorising Pink and White Shorts And Tee Outfits: Blue Kimonos and Pink Bags

Wearing some easy pink and white shorts and tee outfits with blue kimonos and pink bags. To make it look a little different each time I swapped around the tees and shorts, so it was a white tee and pink shorts one day and a pink tee and white shorts the next week!

What I wore:

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this back on the last day of summer to go shopping with my mum - she had some things to buy and there was a Leap Day Sale on at Myer so we went out to shop up a storm. Didn't find anything that I had to have for myself but did manage to pick up some Lego sets for the kids birthdays this year - at 30% off I stocked up!

I felt this white tee was overdue a wear and figured a day of shopping was probably an okay time to wear it - I try to pick days where there is less likelihood of me or the kids spilling something on myself! Unfortunately I did have soup for dinner, thankfully the soup stains washed out!

The blush necklace I have been wearing quite a bit lately - it pairs so nicely with the blush pink shorts! The peony pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag was another bit of matchy-matchy. I wasn't sure if it would be too much with this outfit at first but with the blue printed kimono on top I think it separated the pinks nicely and it was a great accessory to wear.

BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Just like the outfit above, it's a pink and white shorts and tee outfit, but this time I wore white Bermuda denim shorts and a pink tee instead to swap the colours up. I thought this navy floral kimono worked really well with the pink tee, and I've not worn the two together before. I have worn the tee and shorts together before though!

I thought a pink bag would work well with this, just like the first outfit above, and I needed a bag big enough to carry mine and my son's water bottles in so I didn't have to carry the baby bag too. This sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag was perfect, even if it is a different shade from the pink on the tee and the pink in the floral print of the kimono, I thought it complimented it well.

Wore this for a busy way with the school drop off and pick up, a doctors appointment (just a repeat script one, nothing serious!), attempting to grocery shop during the toilet paper shortage which is surprisingly still continuing weeks later... and logging in to work for a can't miss meeting. Thankfully we managed to buy everything we needed despite some bare supermarket shelves, and sticking a few episodes of Bluey on kept the kids happy after school while I joined the afternoon meeting! Unfortunately the tassel on my necklace fell off in the morning, but I'm hoping I can repair it (it's not the first time it's broken sadly).

  8. You have such a fantastic collection of kimonos Mica! Both outfits are so effortlessly chic. We are also still dealing with a toilet paper shortage here as well. The panic shopping is really quite mad especially since the supply chains are fine. The people who are stockpiling are really hurting those who don't have the means/resources to do so. It's good to hear that you were able to get what your family needed. Stay safe and healthy!

    1. Thanks Rowena! the bare shelves have been scary but we have managed to get through the shops with most of the things we've needed which is good! And things are starting to show back up on the shelves.

  9. I love how summery these outfits are! I think that my favourite is the second one because I really like the pink.

    I hope that you're staying safe during this coronavirus outbreak, and are feeling well.

    Have a good weekend!

  10. Ooo I love your take on shades of pink with pale pink look and the darker more peachy pink in the second look. Hope things are OK by you. In the states I feel like we are living in a suspended reality. In NY we are not in a full lockdown only place that is California. The spike has not hit here yet and for all the talk about social distancing I still here planes flying overhead ever 5-7 minutes I live about 20 mins from JFK, where are people going? Spring Break is in full swing in Florida. But the job loses is already spiking with the U E website crashing....

  22. I love the way you are combining kimonos and shorts. My favourite of the two is the second one. I love the blush colour of that tee, and it works very well with the navy based kimono. Hope you'll be able to re-attach the tassel! Have a wonderful Sunday, Mica, and do stay safe! xxx

  23. I am in love with your pink bag! It is super cute. Oooh you're at it again with finding some great deals hehe. The necklace is cute as well. I am a huge fan of the kimono. I have a few and it's so versatile. Stay safe out there. It is so ridiculous that market stock has been low. What have people been doing this whole time?!

  25. I love your outfits - the blush pink in the first one is so cheery, reminds me of plum blossoms, and I love the two-tone pink with the floral kimono in the second one.

    I bought another pack of toilet paper today, just to make myself feel better! I won't hoard, but I am stocked up.
