Rebecca Minkoff mini MACs: Denim Jacket, Colour Block Dress | Stripe Tank, Sass and Bide Skinny Jeans

Here's what I wore on Saturday:
away from blue colour block dipped hem dress denim jacket

away from blue metallic silver mini MAC

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: silver Owl pendant long necklace from Paddy's Markets
Dress: Cotton On Colour blocked maxi in black / Algiers blue
Shoes: Novo 'Tahnee' black studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic double tour bracelet in pearly grey
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC


Saturday was such a strange day weather wise! Really windy and blustery, but still warm when the wind died down. It was the perfect jeans and tee weather, but I had to go to the physio so couldn't have my knee covered. I added a denim jacket to this, as my friend wearing hers yesterday prompted me to dig mine out, but with the weird weather I kept taking it off and on all day.

First time this jacket has been featured on the blog. I had a look for the last time I remember wearing it, and found this picture from 3 years ago where I was covered in parrots, haha! When I first bought it in a City Beach sale around 10 years ago I was so happy at the bargain I got, and wore it over and over. Although it's rarely worn now, I keep it around as I think everyone can use a denim jacket sometimes.

Linking up with Plane Pretty, My Style Monday today.


Last worn: colour block dress, owl necklacestudded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC. the jacket is old, but it's the first time I've worn it on the blog.





Here's what I wore today:
Away From Blue striped tank sass adn bide embroidered jekyll hyde skinny jeans

away from the blue rebecca minkoff aquamarine mini mac

NecklaceIndigo Rose Design pearl and antique gold long necklace
Top: Cotton On stripe sailor tank in dusky green / grey marle (new purchase)
JeansSass & Bide Jekyll and Hyde zippora jeans
Shoes: gifted Havaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


I wore this casual outfit to go shopping, relax in the back yard and work at Church Online in the evening. Got this tank at DFO last weekend, it was a lonely little tank sitting in among some other sale items and it happened to be my size. As there was both girls and guys stuff side by side, I'm not entirely sure if this is a guy's top? But it is slouchy and comfortable so I bought it anyway! :)

The necklace and bracelets are from my friend's jewellery line. If you have Pinterest, she has a board setup that you can view or pin here.


Last worn: skinny jeans, Havaianas thongs, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC. First time I've worn the top as it's a new purchase.

  23. Fun pattern mixing on the 2nd outfit. I agree - you can never go wrong with a good denim jacket. I did replace my denim jacket because my old one did not have any stretch. I don't wear mine too often but I know it will last me for years to come.
