Bermuda Denim Shorts: Minimalist Vs Maximalist Outfits

Although I bought these bermuda denim shorts in November last year, I am consistently surprised when I go to create a new 30 wears series post and find out I haven't yet worn them 30 times. Over summer and our currently mild autumn I feel that I've been wearing them too much, and have to try and change it up a little and give some of my other shorts some love!

I'm wearing them below with a classic minimal combo with a simple top, and with an extra layer for a more maximalist outfit.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey, MAM Morning After Bag silver bracelet stack | AwayFromBlue
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Wilma teething necklace in pale daffodil
Top: thrifted Dotti blue tee
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (on sale!)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this for Baby Boy's weekly weigh and spending some time with my mum in the afternoon. 4 months into 6 months without shopping and I'm still uncovering things in my wardrobe that haven't been worn in a while. Last time I wore this cobalt blouson top I wasn't impressed with the way it fitted while breastfeeding, but decided to hold onto it a little longer. Since I'm breastfeeding less often I'm finding things are fitting a little more like they used to pre-baby. I am glad I kept this top, I enjoyed wearing it.

Despite the top having an embellished neckline, I wanted to add a little more to the outfit so went with a colourful printed kimono. I've worn this top and necklace together before, but felt the kimono added a little something extra. The grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag was the perfect accessory and has recently been re-released, so it's in stock now!

Why I wore it:

I picked colourful accessories to wear with this outfit too, but it's more minimal with just the teething necklace and sandals adding colour to a basic top and shorts combo. The blue Balenciaga bag goes perfectly with the navy wrap top. Wanted something easy and breastfeeding friendly to wear for Baby Boy's vaccinations.

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't add an extra layer to the outfit and kept it basic. Had anticipated a tough day with a cranky baby so simple was best.

How You Can Wear It:

Sometimes a simple outfit is just what you need for the day's activities, other days you might want to be more maximalist and add prints and colour with a piece like a kimono or printed cardigan. It's helpful to have a good go-to base like denim shorts that will work with whatever kind of outfit you have in mind.

Jeanswest Trinity Denim Shorts, Green Tops, Crossbody Bags

I mentioned back in October that I was on the hunt for more denim shorts for spring and summer. I really liked the longer bermuda length denim shorts I wore over my pregnancies, so was extremely happy to pick up these Trinity shorts in the latest Jeanswest sale. They are on sale again now, 30% off!

What I wore:

khaki tank, bermuda denim shorts, mustard yellow micro regan bag | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | Away From The Blue
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Tank: Target embroidered khaki tank
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (new purchase)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (on sale!)
Nails: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

Why I wore it:

Another easy outfit for Baby Boy's weekly weigh session and spending time with family in the afternoon. It was a little windy when I wore this but still quite a warm day, so a simple tank and denim shorts outfit was all that was needed.

I got the idea to wear this mustard yellow bag together with the khaki tank from a guest post on Shea's blog by Becky from byBMG. I really liked this combination and I'm definitely going to wear it again in future.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, khaki embroidered tank, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan. First time I've worn the shorts as they are a new purchase.

Other ways to wearkhaki embroidered tank worn two ways, studded gladiator sandals and a maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and chambray dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This is another one of those non-maternity versions of a maternity outfit I loved so much in pregnancy! While I gave my green maternity tank onto a pregnant friend, I have this non-maternity style in the same colour. The style challenge for the #RuleBreakersClub on instagram was the 'forbidden pairing' of green and blue, so the denim shorts and blue kimono were perfect. It's only recently I've started wearing green and blue together, I'm wondering why it's taken me so long to start wearing and enjoying the combination! Wore this to pop out to the shops quickly with the boys to get a few finishing pieces for their Christmas outfits.

I review everything I buy after wearing it twice to see how my new purchases work in my wardrobe. As this is the second time I've worn these denim shorts, my purchase review:

I love these! When I tried them in in store, I couldn't get over how soft they were. The sales assistant recommended sizing down and I think that was a great idea as they will stretch over time. The length is just right for my petite frame, not too short and not too long. These denim shorts are sure to be a go-to option this spring and summer. They are really highly rated in the reviews on the website and I agree with the high rating. I wouldn't change anything about these shorts!


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer (above), navy printed kimono, green tank, Bermuda denim shorts (above), Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono and a grey tee, green tank and a maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC and purple cardigan.

Studded Sandals, Denim Shorts and Navy Tops

I have been wearing these Rebecca Minkoff studded gladiator sandals so much since I bought them. Living in Australia can mean high shipping charges when ordering from overseas. The plus side is that when sites like Rebecca Minkoff, Shopbop and Asos have end of season sales, it's just the start of that season here. Picking up these sandals in spring meant getting them at the autumn sale price in the US.

While the gold colour I wanted was sold out, I'm pleased I found the blush pair as they go with everything. Especially denim shorts!

What I wore:

Atmos&Here Arlene wrap top navy, Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts LV speedy Bandouliere | AwayFromBlue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | AwayFromTheBlue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop

ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (currently on sale, 50% off shorts!)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a little bit of a hectic morning! Had to go to out to the depot near the airport to pick up a parcel, mail more things at the post office and stop by an event to see a friend as well as picking up a few essentials. Was a bit tired out by the end of it and considered having an afternoon nap with the boys...

Wanted a nice simple outfit, this was perfect. This wrap top is so easy to breastfeed in as you just unsnap the button holding the two wrap pieces together. It met the style challenge for the day too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, navy wrap top, bermuda denim shorts, studded sandals, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Other ways to wearnavy wrap top with purple layers, bermuda denim shorts at Christmas, studded sandals and maxi dress, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag with a dress.

Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace

JeansJeanswest printed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta (20% off with code '2017')

Why I wore it:

Another navy top! In contrast to the outfit above, I picked this for what was meant to be a much quieter day. Ran a few errands in the morning and had a friend over in the afternoon. It was nice to catch up and relax until the day got much crazier with another unexpected trip to the hospital for Baby Boy.

This is the first time I wore the shirt I picked up in the Jeanswest Cyber Monday sale before my 6 months no shopping challenge started in January. It took a while to wear it because I was in hospital with Baby Boy half of December. It's a slightly stiffer material so I was fussing with how it sat a few times during the day, don't think it worked too well with the half-tuck into the shorts. I've worn it untucked since and liked it better.

I really liked the studded sandals with this, and of course the pop of the magenta bag against the navy. The outfit worked nicely for the style challenges on Instagram, and I think I'll try the half-tuck again at some point with this shirt. Maybe just not with these shorts!


Last worn: printed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals (above), Balenciaga magenta day bag. First time I've worn the navy shirt as it's a recent purchase.

Denim Shorts, Summer Layers and Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

Happy Valentine's Day! Sharing two un-Valentine's Day like outfits, although one does have a little pink in it!

With Brisbane's summer heart, shorts and a tank are a good way to dress. It's easy to add a little summer layer to them though for more colour, as I've done with each of the outfits below.

What I wore:

summer print mixing outfit navy kimono stripe tank black distressed denim shorts | away from blue

Jeanswest Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short, Rebecca Minkoff MAM soft grey | away from the blue

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to go to an appointment in the morning. I wanted something easy to wear and it has been a while since I've worn these denim shorts. I was going to wear a different printed tank, but then I saw the kimono and realised that it would look great with stripes. Last time I wore this kimono I tried a little print mixing too. I liked this combination and felt that it looked good, but got a few side eyes when we went out for lunch so maybe it wasn't the best choice. I was happy in it though, and that's all that matters!

Was a really comfortable outfit, with a very practical bag. I had to juggle the baby bag, my handbag and the toddlers, so I appreciated the cross body strap on my Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag as well as the fact that it held everything I needed in it.


Last worn: blue printed kimono, black striped tank, distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Other ways to wearblue printed kimono and printed shorts, black striped tank in winter, distressed denim shorts in 5 piece wardrobe capsule, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag worn 30 wears.

Perfect for pregnancy: Rebecca Minkoff MAM and maternity pencil skirt.

TankJeanswest Brianna basque hem tank
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (on sale!)
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Another appointment, going to see the specialist for a checkup for Baby Boy. As I liked the outfit I'd worn above the day before, I wore a similar outfit the next day. A plain black tank this time, with longer bermuda denim shorts and instead of a kimono I added the pink vest. I'd been thinking about wearing my pink blazer again, after seeing Lorna wearing hers so well, but it was a bit warm for that so I went with this pink vest instead.

Again I wore my Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag, it's such a good bag with the boys as the cross body strap makes it so easy to wear. I added this fun wooden statement necklace I got for Christmas too, it looks nice against the plain black tank. As the specialist's office is full of toys I didn't have to worry about wearing a teething necklace to entertain the boys. It's nice to wear non-silicone necklaces sometimes!


Last worn: pink vest, black tank, bermuda denim shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini (above).

Other ways to wearpink vest and printed jeans, black tank and printed shorts, bermuda denim shorts worn two ways, studded sandals and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini and blue dresses.

Perfect for pregnancy: studded sandals in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff MAM and maternity jeans.







How You Can Wear It:

Add some colour to a denim shorts and tank outfit in summer with an extra layer. Kimonos and lightweight vests don't overheat you, but add a fun touch to your outfit.

Heatwave Style: Printed Tanks, Denim Shorts and Cross Body Bags

I usually try space out my posts a little better but I have been wearing a lot of denim lately so you get a week of denim posts! After the denim maxi and denim shorts posts, yet another denim shorts post. With the warmer than average summer temperatures it's been a little difficult getting inspired to try something other than shorts...


While the printed tanks I'm wearing below are polyester which is not usually the first choice on a hot day, they are a relaxed enough fit that they catch any breeze nicely and actually feel quite cool. I like how a printed tank instantly makes an outfit a little more interesting than if I'd worn a plain basic tank.

What I wore:

printed crochet tank Jeanswest Trinity bermuda denim shorts LV Speedy bag | Away From Blue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
Tank: Emerson crochet lace bib print top
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (currently on sale!)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, simple and perfect for a very hot day outdoors. We'd been planning a trip out to the Ipswich rail museum for a little while so when the perfect day came up we were really excited. The crazy heatwave was not ideal...Ipswich is inland and usually a few degrees hotter than the bayside suburbs of Brisbane. We went anyway, took lots of water and spent a little more time in the air conditioned exhibits.

This crossbody bag was perfect for keeping everyone's water bottle nearby. While I keep the baby bag on the stroller, toddler T was so excited exploring that he rarely stayed near the stroller long enough to get a drink! We're already talking about another visit, probably when summer's over.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarersprinted tank, longer denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy Bandouliere.

Other ways to wearprinted red tank and flares, longer denim shorts and kimono, Louis Vuitton speedy Bandouliere and a wrap dress.

TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
Shorts: Jeanswest denim cuff shorts
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Another too-hot summer day, another printed tank and shorts outfit. Both the tank and shorts are things I'd considered letting go out of my wardrobe. I worried I had too many pairs of shorts, and this tank annoyed me last time I wore it.

I liked this outfit so much that all the pieces are staying. Although I was just running a few errands, I felt this was just the perfect outfit. The printed tank and red bag combo is one I've worn before, it's wonderful whenever I try it. As things are starting to settle down post-baby the tank sat a lot better this time than it did with my fourth trimester body. I'm glad I didn't get rid of it when I disliked it so much previously.

Seeing so many people out in similar shorts made me convinced to keep these ones. Sometimes you just need a pair of short shorts as everything else seems like too much in the heat! As I wear more blue, I'm keeping this blue pair and selling my very similar black pair instead.


Last wornRay-Ban Wayfarers (above), Aztec print tank, rolled cuff denim shorts, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to wearAztec print tank and red skinny jeans, rolled cuff denim shorts and print mixing, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag and shirt dress.


Printed tank and denim shorts is such a simple outfit combination, but so effortless and useful for feeling cool on a hot day.

Plain Tees, Floral Kimonos and Denim Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

You can't beat denim and a kimono for an easy mum outfit. It's autumn and I'm still posting denim shorts outfits! Partly because I have a backlog of outfit pics (I post 6 outfits a week so I can have a day 'off' but sometimes I take a pic every day), partly because autumn officially starts on the first of March but it often takes Brisbane weather a little while to catch up! One of the benefits of living in a tropical climate. 🌞

What I wore:

Cotton On Leah kimono in Juddy floral cerise black tee bermuda denim shorts | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Unlike the last time I wore this kimono, I didn't need it for sun protection! I was studying for my big exam and feeling the pressure with a few days to go. With the humidity and threat of further rain, I decided to take them indoors and we headed to the local McDonald's playground! I was suitably sugared up for studying with a massive hot chocolate as the boys played in the playground. We ended up having lunch there too before heading home.

The longer sleeves on this kimono worked perfectly for spending a couple of hours in the aircon studying. It adds a fun touch of colour with the black tee too, and I think the magenta worked so nicely with the turquoise bag and necklace. I just had to match the necklace and bag together, you know I love a bit of machy-matchy.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Again with the same necklace! Although I didn't match it to my bag this time.

Just like the last time I wore this olive tee and these black denim shorts together, I felt I needed to add a little something. Last time I added a light scarf for an extra colour and print, this time around I stuck with the navy colour but picked this pretty floral kimono instead. It's such a fun one to wear, the cocoon style is like being wrapped up in a big hug!

With the pink in the floral print, this neon pink mini MAC bag seemed like a good choice, and it really pops with the navy, olive and black neutrals.

Just a normal quiet weekend, grocery shopping and swimming lessons, before trying to get more study in in the afternoon when the boys were at the park with their dad.

Floral Kimonos Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral kimono is a fun way to add a little extra colour or interest to an otherwise plain jeans and tee outfit. You can match your accessories to the colours in the print like in the second outfit, or pick a completely different colour like in the first outfit, to add even more colour.

Denim Shorts, Slouchy Tees, Printed Scarves and Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

When I bought these tees from Jeanswest in the sale a few months ago, I didn't expect them to become as much of a staple as they have! I already have a few slouchy tees in my wardrobe, something just makes me keep picking out these tees. They are loose and light, perfect for a hot day when paired with denim shorts. To keep my outfits interesting, I added in a print with my lighter scarves. Both these blue scarves are made from viscose.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This outfit was a hastily pulled together last minute one, but it doesn't look it! I love how a scarf makes your outfit feel more pulled-together. I was in a bit of a rush that morning to get the boys ready and out the door to go to our local ABA group catch up. The blue printed scarf wasn't a necessary addition - I certainly didn't need it to stay warm! - but it was a great completer piece for an otherwise basic shorts and tee outfit. I really liked the red and blue together too.

These studded Rebecca Minkoff sandals are becoming a frequent go-to when I want to wear my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote - they just go perfectly together and with every outfit!

We had a busy morning with some errands to run after our ABA meeting so I picked my neverfull tote to carry everything we needed around the shopping centre and I could leave the bulky and heavy baby bag in the car!

TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green

Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A slightly less hectic start to the morning with this outfit! It was another hot day, but there was a bit of a breeze so this time around the scarf was added for a little extra warmth! I seem to wear this navy mixed print scarf with a lot of olive, this dark olive tee was a natural pairing with it when trying to figure out what to wear that morning.

While these glitter shoes were only $8 at Kmart, I've found them to be really comfortable shoes, so I figured I'd switch things up a little from my Converse and take them out on a stroll through the mangroves. I can't find a definitive answer on the length of the walk online, but the walk is part boardwalk part path through a little bit of bush. Other Bayside locals will know where I mean. It took us nearly 2 hours, lots of stopping to pat dogs walking along, or talk to fishermen, or watch trains once we climbed to the top of the hill. The breeze was perfect for stopping us from overheating, and my scarf came in handy when the wind got too much as we got further out into the bay.

We will need to take Cooper next time - we had to stop at the grocery store afterwards so he had to stay home this time.

Again I carried my big neverfull tote for everyone's water bottles, I didn't feel like carrying the heavy baby bag all the way around the walk!


Last worn: mixed print scarf, olive slouchy tee, black distressed denim shorts, Kmart glitter sneakers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

Perfect for pregnancyLouis Vuitton Neverfull in second trimester.



Slouchy Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A plain slouchy tee is a wardrobe basic and a mum essential. You can't beat a shorts and tee outfit or summer. If you need to change up the outfit a little or you just want to add some extra interest, try a printed scarf! Scarves draped loosely around your neck and made from a light fabric like the viscose these ones are made of will introduce a fun print without overheating you. You can wrap them a little tighter around when it gets cooler in the mornings or evenings, or when you're caught in the breeze being out on the water.

What To Wear On Days Out With Kids: Model Railway With Printed Tank, Denim Shorts, Kimono

I titled this post what to wear on days out with kids, but honestly this was my staple stay at home mum style for any days with the boys over summer. Shorts, tanks and kimonos. Perfection!

What I wore:

family day out outfit shorts printed tank kimono wynnum model railway brisbane bayside steam | away from blue

JORD Cora wood watch, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram aztec print tank shein crochet trim white kimono denim shorts family day out outfit

Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
ShortsThrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold
NailsOPI Koala Bear-y

Why I wore it:

Despite the heat, I had to wear closed in shoes, so I went with my trusty Converse. I don't like wearing closed in shoes on hot days, but those were the rules! We surprised the boys with a trip to the local model railway club, Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society. It had been a tough few weeks so I thought a day out was a nice idea.

I've included the video below, the model railway society have a track set up at a park (1900 Wynnum Road) and you can ride on miniature versions of trains. For my train mad boys, it was perfect. We went around a few times, trying out the different trains. So much fun for them. There's a little model race track setup for remote control cars too so we spent some time there before heading away to get lunch.

I knew I'd need a bit of physical sunblock too for being out in the sun, so I added this white kimono over the top of my printed tank and denim shorts. With the gold in the tank, the rose gold filigree heart necklace seemed like a good accessory, as well as the 'harvest gold' / mustard micro Regan bag.

While I did take the Converse off as soon as I got home, the rest of the outfit stayed on. I wore it to film a couple YouTube videos while hubby occupied the boys.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much, recreated it again with the same kimono, but different tank and shorts. And different shoes! Havaianas are much better suited to the hot Queensland weather! Swapped the micro Regan bag for my silver mini MAC bag too.

We had a few things to do on this day. I took the boys to a messy play day at playgroup in the morning, then we had the doctors in the afternoon. Not quite as much fun as the day out on the miniature railway, but the boys always enjoy playgroup, especially if it's a messy play day!

Unlike the outfit above, I expected to be holding squirming kids on my lap at least some point in the doctor's waiting room, so I went with a more kid friendly necklace! My boys are passed the teething stage but I still like these silicone teething necklaces as they are safe for them to play with and tug on and I know they won't break them!

Printed Tanks Under $50








How You Can Wear It:


Printed tanks and denim shorts are a comfortable stay at home mum outfit for me in the warmer weather. If you need to add a little physical sunblock, try adding a plain kimono. It's breezy fabric won't overheat you, even on a warm day. The beauty of a printed tank outfit is that just by swapping one tank for another, you change the whole outfit by just changing the print you're wearing. A good way to keep your outfits feeling fresh and new without buying anything extra.
