Weekday Wear Linkup: Navy Printed Culotte Shorts Again With Colourful Tees

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm wearing my navy printed culotte shorts again! I have always been a shorts fan in summer but it's been nice to change it up a little from my usual go-to denim shorts. I have been feeling like I've been wearing these shorts a bit much but they are so cool and comfortable for hot summer days, definitely have been a favourite for this summer!


What I wore:


Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig with navy stripe culotte shorts | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram monochrome tee and navy striped culotte outfit with pink jean mac bag

Earrings: Kmart silver leaf drop chandelier earrings
Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Shelley garment dye tee in faded denim blue
Shorts: Jeanswest Valerie yarn dye stripe short in navy and white
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 


Why I wore it:


Wore this for another visit to my parents, we headed over in the afternoon after a quiet morning at home. I wanted to wear some of the new pieces I got for Christmas - the earrings were a stocking gift from Santa, but the necklace, tee and shorts were gifts from my mum. I knew this tee would pair perfectly with the navy striped culottes when I unwrapped it, it's an awesome monochromatic combo!

With the matchy-matchy silver accessories and the monochromatic look with the blue Converse, navy shorts and blue tee, I felt this outfit needed a little something different so I added the pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC for a bit of contrast. I didn't have to carry much during the day either so this was the perfect size for just the essentials I needed!


Last worn: silver circle necklace, navy printed culottes, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody. First time I've worn the tee and earrings as they were Christmas gifts.

Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoes:  New Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:


Again with a block colour tee and navy printed culottes, although this was a much more colourful outfit than the monochrome one above. Taking advantage of the school holidays I had a fun day out planned, letting my son pick what he wanted us to do for the day. We went on a bike ride in the morning, and then the beach afterwards. It was a really fun day.

This was definitely not the best bag choice for the beach though, an easily wipe-downable tote would have been better. I was a little worried about my new Christmas bag getting wet and sandy. I spent most of my time sitting on the sidelines watching though, aside from a little paddle now and then so the bag was salt water free thankfully.

I really liked how well all of the colours in this outfit worked together. The periwinkle blue of the Chloe Paraty bag is a nice compliment to the blue in the print of the navy culottes. Much like the pastel tee, it isn't an exact match with the colour in the print, but it's close enough that it looks so nice together. 



Last worn: pastel yellow tee, gold and navy beaded necklace, floral print navy culottes, New Balance sneakers, Chloe Paraty bag.

How You Can Wear It:


A pair of navy printed culottes are so versatile! You can go monochromatic by pairing it with other shades of blue, or picking some colours out of the print like I have in the second outfit if you want something a little brighter.

  1. When it's so hot outside the best shorts are loose fitting just like these. They give the look of a skirt but more practical since they're shorts! I bet your mom loved seeing you wear her gifts too!

  25. I can't even imagine wearing shorts right now! This is a style that I like, though - nice and loose! I like both outfits, especially how you're using contrasting bags (pink against the blue; blue with yellow) to create visual interest.

    Thank you so much for the link-up!

  38. Although it is hard to imagine wearing shorts right now we're in the middle of Winter here, I can certainly understand why these loose printed shorts and tees are your go-to formula for hot Summer days! I particularly love the first outfit, and the pop of pink from your bag against the monochrome blues. That new clutch you revealed is absolutely stunning! xxx

  42. Your day at the beach sounds lovely, even if the bag wasn't the best choice! I love both of those shorts, they look more comfortable than a pair of denim shorts and I like the patterns/stripes!

  43. Hello Mica! I hope you're having a good start of the month!

    I hope you're enjoying summer season, at least you're able to go outside and enjoys the perks of nature! I'd say you always pick very versatile garments that could look well with almost everything! I loved the striped short culottes in the first look and the way you added a very catchy print in the second option!

    PS: That baby blue bag has a really nice color, I'd say it is one of my favorite tones of blue since it gives me calm :)
