Two Ways to Wear Yellow: with Kimonos, Denim Shorts and Fitted Tanks

I really like blue and yellow together. While yellow is more of a spring colour, I find it works well year round, especially if it's in an accessory.

Although it's autumn in Brisbane, there have been some warm days that have allowed me to continue to wear my favourite warm weather outfit combo of a tank, denim shorts and kimono. With clothing pieces and a colour scheme I love, I really liked wearing both of these outfits.

Necklace: Nibbly Bits Wilma teething necklace in pale daffodil
Tank: Kmart navy ribbed tank
ShortsJeanswest denim cuff shorts

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This was a quiet Saturday as I had a friend come over in the morning. It's hard for us to meet up as often as I'd like as kids don't make scheduling anything easy, but it was wonderful she was able to come over and we could catch up a little.

Picked a simple outfit, denim shorts and a tank. The colourful yellow accessories and printed kimono make it feel a little more dressed up and presentable for having someone visit. Wanted something easy to wear as it had been a stressful few days with Tropical Cyclone Debbie and ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie getting a little too close to friends and family on both ends of the state. We were thankfully fine, and with the constant TV coverage my family up north and own south were on the news! While it was over a month ago now (I'm really behind with blogging!) you can help charities make a difference any day of the year as recovery continues.

Last worn: Somedays Lovin' kimono, navy ribbed tank, denim shorts, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This outfit was inspired by an instagrammer I was following the #SYWardrobeChallenge with. She'd worn a similar outfit with a mustard yellow top and blue leopard print kimono. I knew I had the pieces to create a similar outfit, and loved wearing this! I've worn this yellow tank with blue printed shorts before, so this was a similar outfit.

We went out shopping to get Toddler T some winter clothes as it is starting to get cooler. As the boys were in the shopping trolley I felt brave enough to wear my beaded necklace, although again I took it off as soon as we got home as it's not baby friendly like my silicone teething necklaces.

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow is a fun surprisingly wearable colour! Two easy ways to wear it are to wear a little or a lot of it! If you're unsure about it or find it too bold, try what I did in the first outfit and just add some yellow accessories to one of your favourite outfit formulas.

  1. I like blue and yellow together as well! It's not a combo I wear much personally as I don't have much yellow. I am thinking I need to get a mustard colored item as I like that shade. You look great in both combos!

  2. Yellow is a color I never ever wear. I like it, but I never find a way to make it look flattering on my clothes. I have been incorporating it into my makeup though, so maybe it will grow on me.

  3. The yellow is certainly standing out beautifully in both looks Mica.
    And don't worry I am SO behind too !

  4. Blue and yellow is my favorite color combination - especially for this Spring! You always have the best easy-breezy casual outfits! :]

  5. Navy/Blue & Yellow are always a lovely mix. I love those two colors together. They're so refreshing. You look so cute Mica!

  6. I never ever though yellow and blue would go together but you definitely changed my mind. I recently bought my first yellow top and I can't wait to style it!

    ps: Absolutely love your hair curled, you are gorgeous, Mica!

  7. Oh I think yellow and orange are the two colors I don't wear for some reason. Maybe I don't look very well on them lol but I can tell you you look amazing in these outfits. I particularly loved the color combination of the second one.
    Have a lovely week dear!

  8. FABULOUS in yellow and blue! That rich yellow t-shirt is an amazing colour on you, Mica! Doesn't wearing yellow just make you feel good?

  9. Navy and yellow are a favorite paring of mine, second only to navy and grey.
    Glad you are still having some nice warm weather! we are still having a pretty chilly spring.

  10. Not many people can pull off yellow, but you've found not one, but TWO ways to make it work! I honestly can't choose which one I like the most. I'm leaning more towards the 2nd look with the bermuda length denim shorts :)

  11. So glad to hear your friends and family are ok! Yikes.

    I own absolutely zero yellow things and I've convinced myself I have the wrong colouring for it. However you look lovely in these so maybe I'll have a go with a yellow accessory (I'm admiring that bag of yours still, maybe that's the way to go!)

  12. Yellow is definitely taking over this season! I haven't played with it yet but I'm definitely going to try to style it!

  13. Absolutely love that first kimono. Wonderful pattern :) I don't dislike yellow, but I'm also not really gravitating to it, clothing wise. Some accessories and shoes yes.

  14. Yellow is such a bright, happy colour! It's one of my favourites, it really completes an outfit, and these are some great suggestions.

  15. How wonderful it is still warm enough for your warm weather combos! And I like it we both like it to wear blue and yellow together. Not only therefore I really like both of your looks.

  16. YES- navy and yellow. I keep seeing that combo here and there and am loving it more and more. Beautiful outfits!

  17. You look gorgeous in yellow!! Both of these looks are fabulous!

    xx, Elise

  18. I have been loving yellow lately I just purchased a yellow purse I can not wait to wear thanks for the ideas!

  19. How cute are the subtle bright colors on that kimono! I love that you styled it with denim shorts. I also love that bright yellow tank you have on. Super cute!

  20. I don't have much yellow, but I love it because it is such a sunny and happy color. So seeing how others wear it is always such great inspiration. I love how you have paired it with navy. They really compliment each other well! I really like the turquoise in your necklace in the second outfit with yellow as well!

  21. Yellow really suits you Mica! Unfortunately it doesn't agree with me but it's such a lovely summery colour on you. I love the top especially xx

  22. I love yellow so much! Reminds me of nice weather, holidays and happiness! You certainly carried it very well!

  23. Glad you guys are ok despite the weather conditions!
    Yellow is a color that doesn't typically exist in my wardrobe unfortunately. I find that when I wear it, it enhances the redness in my skin. I think with your skin and blonde hair, it's totally an all year color for you!

  24. Ooh I love the yellow, especially that second look--the bright tank peeking out under the kimono is so fun! Violet is at the grabby stage right now so I can only wear my non-teething necklaces to work (and I have to remember to take them off when I pick her up!).

  25. Pretty kimonos I dont own any, but like them on other people! The mix of yellow and blue looks great on you, im ready to break out my jean shorts too :-)

  26. Both looks are chic yet look so comfy. Yellow is one of my favorite colors, so I am taking away some style inspiration with me.
