Pink and Purple Tee Outfits With Navy Printed Culottes

Pink and purple shorts and tee outfits with some bright and colourful crossbody bags. Because I love wearing bright bags, even when I'm also wearing a colourful outfit! I love these navy culottes too and wore them in the previous post, they have been summer staples.


What I wore:

pink purple navy outfit with blue printed culotte shorts lilac v-neck tee and magenta bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta with navy printed culottes | awayfromblue



NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta


Why I wore it:

Wore this to be extra colourful on a pretty standard school run and work from home day. I had to log out a little early to take my son to an appointment in the afternoon too. With a lot of driving and running around, the Adidas superstar shoes were so comfortable!

The lemon myrtle print on these Kmart navy culottes has yellow, pastel pink and blue in the print, but no purple. I still thought that this lilac tee would be a good pairing with them, it goes so well even if it doesn't match the print at all.

The magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag was a fun pop of colour with the navy and lilac too - and since I didn't have to carry much in my bag on this day it was the perfect size. Just enough space for phone, wallet, keys and hand sanitiser.







What I wore:

thrifted Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet | awayfromtheblue



Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Ruby frill sleeve tee in fuchsia
Shorts: Jeanswest Valerie yarn dye stripe short in navy and white
ShoesKmart white chunky platform sneakers (new purchase)
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
Bag: thrifted Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet (new purchase) with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap


Why I wore it:

This was a fun Sunday! We headed out to the playground a little early to try beat the heat and chilled in the aircon at home afterwards. This fuchsia pink frill sleeve tee hasn't been worn in a while and I was curious to see how my newly thrifted Marc By Marc Jacobs bag would look with it - it's a very purple toned magenta but it looks almost burgundy against the fuchsia tee! I liked the combination though and I went with the neutral navy striped culottes to balance out the bright bag and tee together. The Kmart chunky platform sneakers were another recent purchase too, at just $2!

This Marc By Marc Jacobs convertible clutch is supposed to be a shoulder bag - it comes with a shoulder strap, but being a mum and preferring crossbody bags I knew it would be great for that too. I had this Rebecca Minkoff embellished guitar strap that hadn't been used for a while and it makes the bag a perfect length to wear crossbody! Even if the bright tee and the embellished strap felt a little overdressed for a quiet Sunday at the playground, I still thought it was a fun outfit.



How You Can Wear It:

Pink, purple and navy are a great combination of colours to wear together! You can go really small by adding a colourful bag to your outfit for a third colour in the combo, or bigger and bolder with a pink or purple block colour tee and navy shorts.

  1. I really like the guitar strap on your new MJ bag! I love a crossbody, so much easier to deal with than a shoulder bag when you are on the go. And it adds a little something extra to the outfit too!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Mica!

  4. Fuchsia is one of the few colors that aren´t red that I wear. Both in clothes, but more often as lipstick.

  5. Two easy-going, colourful Summer outfits! I particularly love the first one. Even if there's no purple in the print of the culottes, the tee does go really well with it. The magenta bag adds another pop of colour, as does the beaded necklace! Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Mica! xxx

  6. Yum, pink and purple are two of my favourite colours! These are such bright fun outfits, Mica! I love your shoes in both looks too. Your purple shirt certainly goes with the shoes and bag, even if it doesn't match (that's the rule, right, "It doesn't have to match; it just has to GO.").

    I love that bright pink on you in the second outfit - so pretty with the deeper pinky shade of your swanky new bag. It looks fabulous with the embellished strap. You go, girl, show those other mums how it's done!

    Have a fantastic weekend, my friend!

    PS - I don't know if I remembered to mention, but I loved your closet tour video. That's one very well-organized closet! Great design work, Mica!
