Navy Printed Culotte Shorts and Tees: Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing two very similar shorts and tee outfits, with v-neck tees and navy printed culotte shorts. And I'm wearing some of the new things I got for Christmas too!


What I wore:

Earrings: Piper gold and turquoise disc dangle earring
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in azalea pink
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bag: Chloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

Wore this for the first day of the new year - we took the kids out for a bike ride along a local cycle path, and headed out to the shops afterwards to pickup some groceries and meet my parents who happened to be at the same shopping centre that day.

I dressed colourfully but comfortably for the heat, and I really wanted to wear a lot of new pieces I got for Christmas! The cute blue Converse All Star, turquoise and gold earrings, pink tee and small periwinkle Chloe Paraty bag were all Christmas gifts. They all work so well together in this outfit too! it's a lot of different shades of blue, especially with the navy printed culotte shorts and the blue beaded necklace, but I think that they all work well together. The Paraty bag matches the pastel blue in the print of the shorts so well too! The pink tee is a slightly different shade but I think it pairs nicely with the pastel pink on the printed culottes as well.

This was a really nice outfit to kick off the first day of the new year in, and it was good to enjoy some sunshine as it has been a bit cloudy and wet most days of the school holidays!

TeeCotton On The One Deep V tee in marle nep white body black (new purchase)
Shorts: Jeanswest Valerie yarn dye stripe short in navy and white 
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bag: Chloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

Another simple shorts and tee outfit, again with navy printed culotte shorts, for a couple days after Christmas to take the kids out along a bike trail to test out the bikes they got for Christmas. These shorts were a present from my mum and I knew they would go so well with the tee I picked up at the outlets just before Christmas. The striped culottes are a linen blend, so super comfortable, and they have pockets! It's the first time I'm sharing them here on the blog but I have been wearing them on frequent repeat lately! I've really been embracing the soft shorts this winter, my denim ones haven't had a lot of wear.

The white stripes, white tee and white Adidas Superstar were a bit matchy-matchy, and the Chloe periwinkle small Paraty bag, although not the same shade as the navy shorts, complimented them nicely. The mustard hair scarf, also a Christmas present from my mum, was a nice way to add a little more colour and it helped disguise a bad hair day I was having, ha!


Last worndiamond necklace, Adidas Superstar, Chloe Paraty bag (above). First time I've worn the scarf and shorts as they were Christmas gifts and first time I've worn the tee as it was a late December purchase.



How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is a go-to summer outfit! For something a little different you can try introducing a print, like these navy printed culotte shorts. They are nice and breezy and perfect for humid summer days too!

  18. These are both really cute outfits, Mica! I love your new bag - the gold hardware is pretty and really pops against the pale blue of the bag. Your new Cons are a fantastic colour! I noticed them right away! That pink tee is also a really good colour on you.

    Your mustard head-scarf is great and echoes the gold hardware - love those Adidas!

    Thanks so much for the link-up - I apologize for my absence (and lack of reciprocal comments) last week. I took a week off from commenting and ack, so much to catch up on! I hope you are doing well!

  51. Hey Mica,

    Both looks are great to start the year! Here we had to start 2021 with a lot of chunky sweaters and scarfs since the cold weather hit us hard!

    Those short culottes seem a good option to stay comfty and cool, summer is the season when you want to stay as comfortable as possible!

    Hope you had fun biking, it is amazing that you can have time outdoors with all this madness!
