Black Tees, Jeans and Colourful cover Ups | Weekday Wear Link Up

We had some very stormy, wet weather at the end of spring in Brisbane, so it gave me an opportunity to wear my jeans again. I don't get to wear them much over summer as it's too hot for jeans, so it was nice to give them another wear while it was cooler. Keeping it simple, I wore both of these colourful sets of denim with black tees, my Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag, and some bright cover ups.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted no label tropical print tassel cover up
Necklace: thrifted wooden geometric bead necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart short sleeve cotton modal tee in black
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus black and gold bracelet stack
Bagthrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Why I wore it:

The fun colours in this tropical palm print cover up go with so much. On this day I decided to wear it with some green to play up the green in the print. I liked the forest green jeans with this, even if it's a deeper green than the print. The geometric necklace went well with it too.

With all that green, a simple black tee, my Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag and white Converse were good neutrals.

This was a colourful and comfortable jeans and tee outfit for the school run, working from home, and then a quick errand in the afternoon after picking the kids up from school.

Last worn: palm print cover up, geometric necklace, black tee, green jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag.

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
Bagthrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Why I wore it:

Just like the outfit above, again I went with a plain black tee and then added a printed topper in a similar shade to my jeans. I think this floral print cover up pairs perfectly with the burgundy jeans! While it had been raining overnight it brightened up during the day, so I just wore my Havaianas, not needing to worry about it raining. I had the school run, working from home, and then the dentist in the evening.

I picked this big statement necklace as it's a fun mix of metallic neutrals and it brightened up the darker outfit a little. 

Last worn: floral cover up, metallic necklace, black v-neck tee, burgundy jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag (above).

Other ways to wearfloral cover up and skirt, black v-neck tee over a dress, burgundy jeans and stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Cupid bag and shorts.
