Printed Shorts and Cardigans For Spring With Blue Bags

I was so excited when it started warming up for spring as I'd wanted to try a few shorts and cardigan outfits! September brought some very warm weather with it though, so I haven't been able to wear this combination as much as I'd like. I did enjoy wearing it when I could though, just a handful of times. A cardigan is a nice way to add more colour to a grey tee and printed shorts outfit.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

These shorts were a Kmart clearance find in January 2019 but this is only their 6th wear. I've done a 30 wears post on another pair of blue printed shorts before, so I have lots of ideas for how to wear these and I'm sure they will get more wear this spring and summer. I really like wearing yellow with them, even though this mustard cardigan doesn't match the lemon print on the shorts I liked the two different yellows together.

The cardigan added a fun pop with the grey tee too, and while the blue wooden beaded necklace matched some of the colours in the print, the teal Balenciaga first bag was another pop of colour that I really like wearing with yellows!

After the school run the little one and I went to the local park for a little scoot around, and ran a few errands before school pickup and then sports in the evening.

BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This was a very strange day, weather-wise! It was so windy in the morning we decided to take the kids to the park to fly their kite. However when the wind wasn't blowing it was really warm and sunny. I debated on shorts or jeans and in the end decided a cardigan and printed shorts combo would be perfect instead. I really enjoyed wearing this, this cardigan was nice to block some of the wind but not so thick that I felt overheated in the sun.

I like blue and purple together, so with the monochromatic grey tee and black pull on printed shorts I thought I'd add some navy blue accessories. The recently thrifted beaded necklace pairs really nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag, and I like the way the navy works with the purple cardigan.

Nice comfortable outfit for a quiet Saturday.



How You Can Wear It:

Early spring days where it's warm enough for bare legs or bare arms but not both together is perfect weather for a cute pair of printed shorts and a light cardigan. Adding a cardigan is a good way to bring more colour to your outfit too.

  9. I wish I still had the legs for shorts! Those printed pairs look gorgeous on you, though. I particularly love the first pair with its pops of yellow, white and - I think - pink. The mustard cardigan provides a wonderful contrast. I do hope you'll get lots of wear out of both shorts this season, Mica! xxx
