Rebecca Minkoff Regan and Studded Guitar Strap with Printed Shorts & Tanks

In the Rebecca Minkoff sale I bought the Regan satchel in navy and the crystal studded guitar strap. I knew they would look great together, and they really do! Paired the bag and guitar strap combo with some fun tanks and printed shorts. These soft shorts were so helpful in the summer heatwaves.

Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

With the crystal embellished guitar strap and the shimmery yet subtle metallic tank, this felt like a dressier version of the standard shorts and tank outfit combo I'd been wearing all summer. I didn't wear it anywhere special though, just to work from home and do the daycare drop off pick up. I spent some time in the afternoon with my mum as we tried to get to the bottom of the washing machine troubles I've been having and I stuffed my face with cookies she brought over.

A rather uneventful day for such a pretty outfit, but I'm sure I'll wear the tank and printed shorts together again soon, I really liked the combination.

Why I wore it:

How perfect is the statement necklace with the embellished bag strap?! I really loved the combination of accessories. Pulled this outfit together as I wanted to wear these shorts again. I was aiming to hit 30 wears on them by the end of summer, but as I didn't wear them weekly as I needed to in order to hit 30 wears, I didn't quite get there. These still have another 8 wears to go! I was hunting through my wardrobe for something different to wear with them. I like blue and pink together so don't know why I haven't tried this combo before.

The satin tank is another take on the shimmery metallic tank worn in the first outfit. As you can see all I did was change the colours in this outfit, otherwise it's the exact same formula. Outfit formulas are the best when you're a busy mum, you just take what you liked from a previous outfit and change a piece or two to come up with a whole new look. Easy!

Wore this for a quiet day. Ran a few errands in the morning. Before grocery shopping, we went to the opshop looking for hats for the boys. How do their heads grow so quickly?! Managed to find a hat and also picked up a pair of shorts for myself, you might have seen them in my haul video.

Last worn: satin tank, printed shorts, gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap (above), Rebecca Minkoff Regan tote (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Printed shorts and a plain tank is a staple summer outfit, and a wonderful outfit formula to follow as you can just pick a different tank for a whole new look. A plain colour will always look good with a busy print. You can add some extra interest to your tanks by choosing an interesting fabric, like metallic or satin.

  1. Happy New day Mica! The bag is so cute and the strap add a lot of glam to the look. It's amazing how one little change can make a big impact. Thanks for sharing!

    Have a blessed week pretty lady!


  2. I love the guitar strap that you have picked for your RM bag and I love the Reagan tote. It's spacious and the leather is luscious. I love love RM bags. The shade of the color you picked also goes very well with your printed shorts. Perfect for those summer heatwaves you guys are having and the ones I am dreading that will be coming to us in the next few months. Summer and I don't get along! Lol 😂 I hope you are having a great day so far and happy Monday!

  3. I love having special embellished items to make an outfit more interesting like your guitar strap or shimmery tank. They make it look like you spent so much more effort into getting dressed than you actually did! I am really liking the guitar strap with that bag. It's such a great way to jazz up a bag!

  4. How can anything regarding kids geow so quickly? I feel like not only the heads, they need new clothes constantly! And as my son is big, he is already wearing the same clothing size as my daughter does, no chance in handing down clothes next winter.

  5. Oooh I like the strap, it definitely adds to the whole style of the piece. I love little things like this, they all come together to help support a really nice outfit.

  6. I do love the combo of the pink tank with those printed shorts--they go really well together! I also love the fun, funky strap for your bag! I've never thought about changing up the strap of a purse before, but it does really change up the look! Have a good week!

  7. Love that studded guitar strap on that bag! So pretty! Beautiful, casual summer looks! I hope it warms up here in DC soon - it's been so cold and rainy!

  8. LOVE the bag strap !! I saw some at the store a few weeks ago and they were plastic so I figured they would last very few wears and decided not to go for it.

  9. That is a gorgeous bag and I adore the strap because it makes it so unique! I am envious whenever I hop on here and see you wearing shorts, it's like a never ending cold here.

  11. That embellished strap adds so much fun to the bag! I love the idea of changing things out. You have choices. It's very pretty Mica. Love both of your outfits.

  12. That bag is so cute and fun! You look great, Mica! :)

  13. I love the idea of making the bag strap an extension of how your outfit is accessorized. This one is so cute!

  14. I love that strap! It's so cute and really changes up the whole look!

  15. Love the two casual looks you did. I like how you can look great in those printed shorts. Makes me want to buy a pair of my own. And the strap just puts that extra oomph in your look.

    Hope you're doing well and always stay gorgeous! :)


  16. I like the guitar strap/bag strap trend! It's a great way to add new life to an old bag!

  17. Very cool strap! This reminds me that, maybe, with all the brands that are selling extra straps now as a bag accessory, I might be able to find something for my ancient MAB bag. The last time I tried looking for one (in early 2015), it wasn't a thing that brands were really doing, and I had to find something on AliExpress. The one I got back then didn't even fit because the clips weren't the right size...

  18. LOVING that bag! It's very Balenciaga-esque, but the guitar strap makes it fun too! Sometimes a pretty outfit can really make up for an uneventful day I find :D

  19. I love the guitar straps they are doing now! They're so cool. I like yours with the embellishment, sits nicely on your Regan! Happy Thursday, Mica! I hope you're well and it's cooled down!
