Denim Shorts, Prints and Cross Body Bags

Two different ways to wear a simple outfit formula of denim shorts and prints. Both outfits feature tops that haven't been worn for a while. It's not even because I'm breastfeeding as it's possible to breastfeed in them when you lift the hem. (Helps to have a layer underneath when you do this though).

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
TankJeanswest round neck lace detail top
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (currently on sale, 50% off shorts!)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

A quiet day running a few errands gave me a chance to wear some of my favourite pieces. Perfect for the #DecemberWearWhatWear style challenge and the #DAREcember challenge on Instagram. I've worn all of these accessories together before as I really like the combination.

Although it's been a while (nearly 3 months) since I've last worn this top, it really should be worn more often!

Shorts:  OneTeaspoon Hawks shorts in Fox black (C/O, on sale!)

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

What was supposed to be a quiet and relaxing day turned into a stressful one. Had to take Baby Boy back to hospital as he pulled out his tube. Again! Picked an easy outfit of shorts and this fun printed tee, it met a few style challenges but I mainly chose it as it's been sitting unworn in my wardrobe for over 6 months!

It's pieces like this that I love but really don't wear a lot that helped contribute to my decision to start a 6 months without shopping challenge. When I wear these tops, I really like them, but it's so long between wears. I'm going to spend 2017 focusing on just wearing and enjoying what I already own.

Last wornRay-Ban Wayfarer (above), neon leopard print tee, OneTeaspoon Hawks shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

  3. Sorry to hear about your baby boy, he's proven to keep you busy :)
    I hope you have a relaxing weekend.

  4. Oh so sorry to hear about your little boy. I really like your kimono with the colors and I love the short sleeves on it. Hope little man feels better soon!

  5. The fitst outfit is my favourite, Mica. I really like the bag that you paired the outfit with as well with the kimono. Sorry to hear that it was stressful and about the baby. Wishing you a peaceful weekend. <3

  6. I'm very sorry to hear that, well I hope your little boy is fine. Anyhow, I've been sticking with the "wearing and enjoying what I already own" mantra too. ♥ Sometimes, we just don't notice the nice stuff we got in our closet. Hope to hear from you soon!

  7. Denim shorts and comfy flat sandals are perfect while running errands. And I love how your lovely dog is always with you while taking pictures, mine is following me everywhere and sometimes he gets lucky to be in my pictures too!


  8. I was going to say that first top definitely needs to be worn more, then I saw that second top and fell in love! What a stunning print and such a beautifully unexpected colour too. Loooove!


  9. You look lovely as always, Mica:) Seeing your post makes me miss wearing shorts. And I'm so sorry to hear about the stressful day with the little one.:(

    PS Love that you're doing that challenge!

  10. Love both easy-breezy looks, especially the first - you know how much I love your kimono collection!
    I'm sorry to hear about baby boy! I hope things have calmed down a bit for you!

  11. Every time I see you in that kimono, I rue the day I clicked through to the link and didn't buy for some reason . . . because it was sold out next time!

  12. I randomly started thinking of summer over the weekend. Thinking of all the things I want to add to my wardrobe and the things I like, but need more of. Kimonos! I just ordered two of them! (;

    I've been in a summer shopping mood and certainly your Australian summer helps that bit. lol

    I hope baby Boy is ok! Man, how scary!

  13. Mica, they are comfortable and stylish. Oh no! He pulled out his tube. Babies don't understand :( Poor baby. Hope everything is alright. Both of these outfits are casually chic :D

  14. Wow so many cute teething necklaces. They always make me nervous about a bead popping off when im not paying attention or bub trying to nibble a non teething necklace. Gotta ask about this mushroom mask you mentioned on my post. so curious now.
