Two Ways to Accessorise Monochrome Blue Shorts Outfits - Red, Yellow and Green

Blue is my favourite colour and I do wear a lot of it! While I'm trying to stay away from the blue jeans, I do love my blue denim shorts. I paired the blue shorts with some blue tops to create monochromatic outfits, and accessorised each with different colours. Bright bags and kimonos with shorts outfits are a summer staple for me!

Why I wore it:

Wore this to spend the day with my sister. I love when our days off line up together, and the kids really love spending time with their fave aunt! We headed out to Bounce which is basically just a giant warehouse filled with trampolines. Wanted something simple to jump around in but cool for the hot day so picked this super soft tee and denim shorts. It felt a little plain so I added the kimono for a touch of colour, and the little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery tote matches the red in the print.
Still felt this outfit was lacking a little something so added this light thrifted necklace - didn't want anything too heavy while bouncing around! Ended up doing more bouncing than I expected, as my sister and I perfected the double bounce you can see below and also enjoyed bouncing off the trampoline onto a giant pillow with the boys. Was a great day, and after lunch we relaxed a little bit before an early dinner and when out again for a trial sports session in the evening for my eldest son.

Why I wore it:

I think part of the reason I love yellow so much is that it goes great with blue! I wasn't feeling the best on this day so decided to try brighten up my monochrome blue tank and denim shorts outfit with this bright yellow kimono. I felt it was a great topper for the navy and made me look a little more energetic than I felt! The long tassel necklace broke up the blue a bit, and this little green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag was another fun way to add some colour.
While my breastfeeding days are behind me, I kept this tank in my wardrobe as it's a good basic and you wouldn't know just by looking at it that it's designed for breastfeeding!
Was a quiet day with the boys - headed to our local fenced in park so I could try sit and rest while they played. Bumped into my friend there so the boys had fun playing together and getting some of their energy out!

How You Can Wear It:

A navy top is a great basic to have in your wardrobe- tanks or tees, both look great with denim! To break up the monochrome combo when wearing it with blue denim, try adding other colours to your outfit like a colourful bag or bright kimono.
