Kimonos, Camis and Denim With Love Too Bag: Weekday Wear Link Up

Making the most of the super warm spring weather that felt more like summer that Brisbane enjoyed back in September with camis, kimonos, and denim.


What I wore:



mint cami, denim skirt, tie dye kimono and sneakers, teal rebecca minkoff love too bag | awayfromblue

tie dye kimono and Rebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather | awayfromtheblue




Jacket: Jeanswest Kensley summer tie-dye kimono
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace
Top: H&M mint v-neck cami
Skirt: JayJays distressed denim mini skirt from my sister's wardrobe
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

I absolutely loved this outfit. I feel it looks a little off on the pics because I didn't tuck the cami into the skirt, and I probably should have tucked it in, but wearing this I liked the long loose lines of the untucked top and the tie dye kimono. I thought the navy tie dye looked so good with the mint cami too, and the colours of the deep teal Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag complimented the outfit so nicely.

I would have liked different shoes with this but stuck with comfortable sneakers for a very busy day with lots of running around. Had my second dose of Pffffiiiizer which I was pretty excited about, given us 30 year olds were only eligible to get the vaccine in August in Australia. It's good to be as protected as I can be now. God bless science!

After my vaccine appointment, my youngest son and I had a party in the park to attend while hubby took my eldest to a bowling birthday party. Thankfully I didn't experience as much arm pain this time with the second dose as I did with the first dose, but by the end of the night I was exhausted and went to bed early. Had a pretty rough night with fever and nausea, and wasn't feeling the best the next day, but after that day of feeling horrible the side effects passed which was awesome.


Last worn: earringstie dye kimono, knot necklace, mint cami, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag. First time I've worn the denim skirt as it was from my sister's wardrobe clear out earlier in the year when it was too cold to wear it.

Jacket: thrifted digital print no label kimono
NecklaceHouse of Harlow 5 station necklace in black and silver
CamisoleNew Look orange strappy cami top
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

I was glad I'd pre-planned this outfit in advance as I was pretty tired this morning but we again had a big day planned - after the school drop off for my eldest, my little one had his sports class, we had lunch and a playdate, and then sports again for both boys after school pick up in the evening.

Realised while outfit planning in my wardrobe I hadn't worn this cami in quite some time and with a 30 degree day something light like this was the perfect outfit. While there isn't any orange in the pint of this kimono - just mustard and red - I loved the way the two pieces looked together. The bright orange helped me feel I looked a lot better than I felt too! And with all the black in the print the black shorts seemed like the best choice, especially for running around with my son at the playdate.

Again I wore the Rebecca Minkoff deep teal Love Too bag - I thought it complimented the colours of this outfit too and it really pops with the orange cami! Just like it did last time I wore it with orange.


Last worn: Aztec print kimono, orange cami, necklace, black denim shorts, New Balance sneakers, Love Too bag (above).

Other ways to wearAztec print kimono with purple, orange cami and printed jeans, black denim shorts and stripe tee, Love Too bag and pencil skirt.



How You Can Wear It:


A printed kimono is a fun topper with a plain block colour camisole top. Add in denim shorts or skirt and you have a staple spring outfit.

  1. I love both of these outfits, the one with the denim mini skirt and the one with the shorts. The combination of the kimono with denim and tops looks nice. The blue tones in the first outfit are really cool and I like the bold orange top contrast in the second outfit. It's lovely you feel more protected now.

  15. That denim skirt looks so fabulous! I really love the tie-dye kimono over top as well. It is such a bold piece and looks incredible on you! SO SO glad you were able to get the second dose of your vaccine. God bless science, indeed! I'm glad you were able to make it through the side effects and now are feeling better. It is all worth it in the end! Love the second outfit as well. That orange coloured top is so stunning and pairs perfectly with that kimono. I hope you have a fantastic week <3

  24. Seems we have been sharing weather in September, although we were in two different seasons!
    My favourite of your two outfits is definitely the second one, with its funky pop of orange.
    I'm glad to hear you are fully protected now. I did suffer more from my second shot as well. While I didn't have fever, I felt quite tired and nauseated. I'm glad that your side effects didn't last too long!
    Wishing you a great week Mica! xxx

  25. As always you are rocking all of your looks. We had a warm (but damp) weekend. It is going to be decidedly chilly today (top of 13 or 14).

  26. The orange does go with the 2nd kimono as the red reads orangey with orange right there. And sometimes you just need sneakers for a busy day. Yay on the 2nd vax.

  27. I love that orange top! So glad you got your second vaccine! It's such a relief to be fully vaccinated!

  49. So sorry you were under the weather after your second vaccine. I was pretty fortunate. Not terribly sick either time. Hope I am as lucky with the booster.

    What pretty color combinations in these two looks. I love a kimono. I think all of mine have a print or pattern. That blue print kimono is so nice with the seafoam cami. I just bought some navy suede flats that sure would look cute with that outfit!!
