Purple Skinnies, Stripe Tank, Waterfall Jacket, RM Mini MAC | Jacquard skirt, Beaded Jumper, Balenciaga Velo, Red Shoes

Here's what I wore on Sunday to go to the airport, movies and Church Online:

away from the blue purple skinnies rebecca minkoff mini mac aquamarine python snake print silver hardware

away from blue purple skinny jeans aquamarine mini mac stripe tank waterfall drape jacket

Jacket: no label white drape jacket
Top: Glassons striped tank black and white (New purchase)
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoes: gifted Havaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in Aquamarine


Nice casual outfit, taking advantage of the warmer day to wear thongs. Went to the airport to farewell my sister this morning, she's away on a long trip. In the afternoon, went to the movies with DH and then had Church Online in the evening. This was really comfortable to wear all day. Surprised to find I haven't worn this jacket in the 22 or so months I've had the blog, it's a really nice piece. Should have worn it more when the weather was just starting to cool down.


Last worn: purple skinny jeans, printed thongs, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC. First time I've worn the top as it was a recent purchase, and first time I've worn the jacket on the blog.

Here's what I wore to work today:

Away From The Blue Blog balenciaga 2011 coquelicot classic velo poppy red hermes kelly wrap bracelet mbmj enamel bangle

away from blue warehouse grey beaded knit jeanswest jacquard black skirt red suede shoes Balenciaga coquelicot velo

TopWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: Jeanswest 'Helena' black jacquard skirt

Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge bangle in black and white Hermes Kelly Double tour bracelet in rubis
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo (2011 RH)


Wore this because I thought the beaded pattern on the knit would be nice with the subtle jacquard of the skirt :) And some red for a bit of colour too! I wasn't sure if the skirt and the relaxed fit of the top would work well together, but they used a very similar silhouette at asos to show the jumper, so I decided to give it a try. Saw a lady on my way to work wearing a similar pleated skirt with a more fitted top and a belt, so I'll give that a go next time! :) I get outfit ideas from a few different places!


Last worn: grey embellished jumper, jacquard skirt, red suede shoes, Balenciaga velo.

  6. You know I have always wanted to try the mini MAC but I am just too worried it won't hold enough for me. I love my two MACs especially when I go on trips. My essentials are my sunnies, Iphone, lip balm, eye drop and a few of my travel sized lotions. Sometimes I feel the MAC is JUST barely enough to hold everything....that's why I haven't tried the mini MAC. What are your thoughts? :) I do love this colour and the snake print is so edgy! Definitely my cuppa!

    1. I can definitely fit more in the MAC, but I usually slim down my essentials to what fits in the mini MAC anyway, so it's more whatever colour I feel like wearing that day, haha!

      You can see a bit of a comparison of the two bags on youtube if it helps :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoihlrLXhck

  11. So lovely! Stripes and pops of red...I think that would be the bulk of my wardrobe if I had the chance! :)
    Thank you, sweet Mica, for stopping to see me...I'm sorry it's getting colder, lots of tea and stay cozy! We are supposed to be warm and toasty here, but gray and chilly seems to be the trend
    Making my way around blog friends little by little...computer connection so slow right now.
    Hugs to you and Cooper!
