Olive And Black Striped Tanks and Shorts Outfits With LV Speedy Bandouliere

Easy striped tank and shorts outfits with black and olive together, and my Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere bag. While I wore these outfits back in February while it was still summer, there was some cooler autumn weather so I layered one outfit up a little with a light jacket.


What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted black Emerson drawstring waist utility jacket
Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
TopAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere


Why I wore it:

This black and white striped tank is one you're going to see on repeat lately - it's so close to 30 wears and I'm eager to get it there so I can put together a post on it in the next couple of months. It really is such a wardrobe staple. The black and white stripes look good with the olive shorts.

It was a strange kind of day, more rain but not a lot of humidity - a clear sign of autumn weather starting to arrive. I picked the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere to wear as it's waterproof, and added the jacket on top of my light tank and shorts outfit as it was cooler than I expected when we headed off for the school run in the morning. After the school run the little one and I headed out to look for decorations for his upcoming birthday - he'd picked a theme at last but we were struggling a little because despite visiting four different stores there was very little to pick from overall in the party sections. I guess it doesn't make sense to have a lot of stock if the restrictions can change at the last minute for parties! Determined to let him have a big party this year though after we had to cancel at the last moment a year ago with the restrictions.

By school pickup the humidity had returned too and our jackets were unnecessary, but I still liked this outfit. The shoes were good for all the running around we did between different stores, but I swapped to my my supportive New Balance sneakers for school pickup as my knee was starting to complain from all the walking and driving.

Why I wore it:

Summer weather had returned on this day, so no extra layers were needed! Again I stuck with black and olive, with this old grey and olive striped tank that was definitely overdue a wear and my black Bermuda denim shorts. An easy and comfortable outfit for a day out shopping with the kids and my mum - I did pretty well, picking up a new pair of shoes, as did my mum! I wore my supportive New Balance sneakers as I felt they went well with the outfit and they also help my weak knee. I'd been rushing around a lot that week and was starting to feel more pain, these shoes are so helpful at reducing the pain. I stuck with the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere as I'd worn it the day before, above, and it meant I didn't have to swap out my bag as it went with this outfit too.

Wanted to dress it up just a little so added some rose gold accessories with the filigree heart necklace and the heart stud earrings. Was a really nice day out!



How You Can Wear It:

Olive and black are great neutrals together. To prevent a neutral outfit feeling too bland, try introduce a bit of a print - stripes are my go-to, as you can see here.

  1. I'm really liking the black and olive paired together! I've been wanting to wear more green and I'm not sure how to incorporate it in my wardrobe. I've started small with an olive coloured nail polish, but I think little hints of it with stripes is nice as well :)

  4. I love both of the outfits Mica. I like the speedy handbag too. I like that you can use it as a crossbody bag. I have a speedy bag too but without the shoulder strap. Have a nice weekend.

  5. What a fun backdrop you found for your khaki striped outfit! I love it! The pictures of you "in the wild" are fun, Mica! I like both of these casual autumn outfits.

    Good luck with the party! I hope you find all the stuff you need to throw a big one. I admit I'm insanely jealous of a party - I would LOVE to have a party! Maybe by September...
