Red Tees Black Shorts and Printed Cover Ups

Adding some printed cover ups to these black shorts and red tee outfits, with comfortable sneakers and black bags.

Tee: Jeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black

Bagthrifted Rebecca Minkoff vintage Cupid satchel in dark navy blue

Why I wore it:

This was such a fun evening! I had to work from home, and then the kids and I headed down the coast for dinner with my sister at my parent's house. It's a good meet up point between both our houses. And while we both had long days, it was good to catch up and spend some time together. The boys had been looking forward to it for a while!

I did consider wearing jeans instead of shorts - as it is autumn - but I was plenty warm while working from home, and I thought this dark floral cover up would keep me warm as well in the evening. It did get a little chilly though, and I did wish I'd worn jeans before we went home. Will need to wear this floral cover up with jeans next time. I'll probably wear it with red again too, I really liked the coral red tee with the red in the floral print.
Decided to try something a little different with these black printed shorts and add another black print on top. The cover up and shorts are both a black background with a small white print so I thought they would work nicely together. I really liked the combination, especially with the red tee in-between for a touch of colour.

I haven't always enjoyed print mixing with these shorts but it was good to try something different, and I really liked this outfit! Added the practical New Balance sneakers and my big Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote bag for a day in the park. Making the most of the beautiful weather on the public holiday, we took the kids to the local park to practice skateboarding on the boards they recently got from my parents. And then after tiring themselves out on their boards, they were able to run around in the playground for a bit.

Last worn: black print cover up, red tee, sunburst necklace, black printed shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff studded unlined tote bag.

  3. You've inspired me to wear kimonos, and I do love wearing them as cover-ups in Summer. While I think both of these outfits are fun, the first one is my favourite. That floral kimono and coral tee are a match made in heaven! xxx
