Red Tees, Denim Shorts, Printed Kimonos and Aqua Mini MAC Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up

Sharing some more colourful casual shorts and tees outfits for summer with red tees, printed kimonos and a little aqua Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag for today's Weekday Wear Link Up. Wore both these outfits back in December.

Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Ruby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
Shorts: Jeanswest Heather Bermuda short in black
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather


Why I wore it:

Surprisingly I haven't worn this coral red tee with this tropical floral print duster before! They are such a good combination, even if the shades of red don't match. I added this fun statement beaded necklace for a touch of even more red, and the little aqua mini MAC bag was another bright pop of colour.

This was a great outfit for a busy school holiday day before Christmas! Took the kids out to watch a Christmas movie in the morning, they picked up a few last minute presents and we had time for some Christmas craft at the shopping centre too before heading home as we had sports in the afternoon.

We saw the "A Boy Called Christmas" movie and it was really good! Highly recommend watching it - maybe next year as Christmas is long over now - I've just been a bit behind with sharing outfits!

Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather


Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much I followed the outfit formula again a few days later. Went with this shorter blue printed kimono this time, and this slouchy red round neck tee. So nice paired with the blue Bermuda denim shorts, and again with the aqua mini MAC bag

Wore my supportive New Balance sneakers, as again we had a busy day! Dropping off some donations at the opshop in the morning, and of course having a little browse, and then some shopping and having lunch with mum at IKEA.



How You Can Wear It:

A kimono is a great piece to have in your wardrobe for summer! You can throw it over a basic shorts and tee outfit, as I have here, to add more colour and interest to your outfit.

  8. I love the pops of red (or rather, coral and terracotta) in these outfits and the aqua bag is perfect with both. My favourite is the first one, with the darker floral kimono and that gorgeous necklace! xxx

  11. I love how you dressed up your shorts and tee with a kimono. Even though, it is a casual outfit, it still elevates the look. I also adore the color of your RM bag. It is so refreshing to see such a vibrant color. We are in the middle of winter and color really fight off the greyest or dreary days. I hope you are having a great day so far and happy Monday!

  29. I'm in Miami this week and I've seen so many women wearing kimonos—they remind me of you, especially in this post! Think I might need to buy one to wear while I'm here ;)

  32. Great colour combo as always, Mica! That coral tee for sure goes so well with that duster:) And I know I've said this before, but am really jealous of your weather there right now...sigh....to feel the heat again:D

  33. Isn't it funny how we don't think of pairing some colors and then when we do, we're so delighted? You make wearing kimonos so carefree and fun! I just can't seem to find one that I feel right in. Oh, well, I have plenty of other things to wear! It's so funny to see you wearing shorts as we're smack in the middle of winter here!

    Thanks so much for the link up!
