Striped Tanks, Denim Shorts and Red Crossbody Bags

With the summer heat and summer holidays near the end of January I was starting to feel a little uninspired with my outfits. Stripes and denim shorts with a pop of colour is always a good outfit idea that doesn't require a lot of effort so I wore these simple outfits on days out with the kids, accessorising with some red Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags.




What I wore:

Cotton On The One fitted v tee in eddy stripe white / red terracotta with bermuda denim shorts red saddle bag park playdate outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | awayfromtheblue



NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
TeeCotton On The One fitted v tee in eddy stripe white / red terracotta
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl beaded bracelets 
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)


Why I wore it:

Wore this for a playdate in the park before school returned. I'd had grand plans for frequent playdates over the school holidays with my son's school friends, but with the little one's surgery before Christmas and wanting to make up for that after Christmas with time with family, we only made it to two playdates! I was glad we organised this one though, my son's friend's mum was so nice to talk to and the kids are such good friends.

I did think about dressing up as the other mum is very stylish, but it was a hot day and I knew I'd be running around in the park a little with the boys so I went with the mum staple of shorts and tee. Added a little interest with the striped tee instead of a plain one and a pop with the red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag, but nothing too over the top. Perfect for a hot morning at the park. I haven't worn this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag in a while and I'm not sure why, it's such a good bag! It worked well with the rust stripes on the tee.

Carried some snacks along to share which meant I didn't need a big handbag as everyone's water bottles went in the bag with the picnic blanket and food.


Last worn: clay striped tee, feather necklace, Bermuda denim shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff red studded saddle bag.

Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Shorts: thrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag


Why I wore it:

Stripes and denim shorts again, with another red Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag! This time around it was a striped tank, this one is so very close to 30 wears and definitely a wardrobe staple. I wore it with the distressed denim shorts and Converse for a quiet Saturday. We had a trip to the library after swimming lessons, stocking up on some new books for the kids and myself ahead of the public holiday day off a few days later. The kids also got to pick up their prize for the summer reading competition they entered which was nice.

With the blue necklace, navy stripe tank, blue denim shorts and blue Converse, this outfit really benefited from the extra pop of colour with the little red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery crossbody bag. I like wearing red with this striped tank, it's a fun combination and one I've repeated a few times. I'm a big fan of the "if it works, repeat it again" outfit combinations πŸ˜…

How You can Wear It:
Stripes and denim is a classic combo, and both these outfits are staple mum outfits for summer days! For a little extra interest and colour you can pick a bright bag like these red Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags, for a fun pop with your outfit.

    1. I probably should have, the other mum was stylish as always, but I did spend a lot of time running around with the kids/pushing them on the swings so I felt suitably dressed for that :)

  30. Both outfits are super cute, Mica:) So jealous....it's freezing here in Canada (as always LOLZ) And I still find it so amazing that there are parts of the world where life is normal and that you can go on play dates. I feel like it'll never happen here.
    Have a great weekend:)

  44. Oooh! Love your striped tank! I really like that you manage to pair your bags with all of your outfits so well. How do you make sure that all the necessities are transferred accordingly? I have to take out my cards on my own when I transfer to my little clutch @__@. Love that denim shorts are back!! Just bought a pair :)

    1. Oh I don't carry a lot, keys, wallet, hand sanitiser, phone, and maybe a card case or pouch so that's easy to transfer between bags. I have a small wallet so I don't have to take cards out to put in bags :)

  50. Cute outfits Mica! Stripes and denim are a staple for me. I don't know what it is about stripes but I am addicted. Love the pop of red on both of your outfits and that RM unlined saddle bag is just stunning! I hope your week is off to a great start and happy Monday! Btw, I keep running into issues linking up. It keeps giving me an error but will try again. Just FYI.
