Summer Stripes and Maxi Skirts. Rebecca Minkoff Canvas Mini MAC Bag

Here's what I wore on Sunday:
Australian Summer outfit spectrum grey tee striped maxi skirt RM mini MAC bag
Sunglasses: gifted Cotton On 'Kirsten sunnie' in yellow
Necklacecustom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
Tee:  Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt: AT by Atmos&Here Mars maxi skirt in white and navy
Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe


DH and I were spoiled by our friend who surprised us with a hotel stay for our Christmas present.  We have a few days down by the Gold Coast to relax, which was incredibly thoughtful and much appreciated! The weather has been lovely too.

Spent Sunday by the pool and checking out the local markets, before working at Church Online in the evening. There is no wi-fi in our room and mobile reception is patchy, so I've been instagraming (@awayfromblue) just every now and then. So glad I brought the laptop so I could use the cabled internet and still attend church. The Christmas church service has started, and it is played over 60 times this week at live.lifechurch.tv if you want to check it out.


Last worn: yellow sunglasses, grey tee, stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff canvas stripe mini MAC.



Here's what I wore today:
Away From Blue Striped Tank Statement Necklace Black Jersey maxi skirt RM MAC

Rebecca Minkoff berry stripe coated canvas mini MAC
Necklace: gifted beaded statement necklace from local markets
TopAT By Atmos&Here Orion stripe tank
Skirt: gifted Jeanswest plain jersey black maxi skirt
Shoes: gifted black slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe


Another relaxing day by the pool! Wore this to go out and about, with dry hair so I didn't have to scrape it into a messy updo like previously, haha!

The necklace is a recent birthday gift from my bestie, isn't it beautiful? Really enjoying wearing maxi skirts this summer, they seem to be my go-to this time. Last summer it was definitely shorts all the way!


Wanted to let you know as well that the international Net a Porter sale has started, so if you have some Christmas money or want to treat yourself to something, now is the time to buy at up to 50% off! :)


Last worn: stripe tank, Havaianas (see above), Rebecca Minkoff canvas mini MAC (see above). First time I've worn the skirt as it was a recent gift.

Linking up with Style Elixir today.

  5. Such a thoughtful pressie from your friends! I love you in long skirt. Casual chic is so you and you look extremely comfortable in it too. I wish I could get some sunshine and warmth here as I have been sick in the past few days. No break for me since I am now back to work for a day and half before Christmas :<

  11. I'm especially loving the 2nd outfit- it looks like a gorgeous maxi dress but turns out you paired the tee and the skirt so nicely it looks like a fitted dress! :) I can't wait for summer here in Edmonton so I can head to the pool! xx

  12. You look beautiful in stripes. I just noticed your gorgeous Tiffany bracelet and went to your FAQ to confirm that it was indeed Tiffany. I've been wanting a Tiffany necklace lately, I need to avoid checking their website daily or I'll end up spending too much money.

    1. They do have some lovely pieces! :) 2 of the 3 Tiffany bracelets I own were gifts from my sister from her trips to the US, much cheaper over there!

  13. It must be nice to enjoy some warm beachy weather. I really love stripes, so I think your skirt and tank are really stylish. I have a similar skirt and styled mine with boots and a coral cardigan. You look relaxed and casual, I bet a denim jacket with your skirt would be so cute when it gets cooler in the evening.

  16. Oh dear, you have no idea how much I envy you, I'm so sick of this cold! And the silliest thing is that I had a year of summer after coming back to France from Australia and I hated it!
    Your bag is gorgeous!

  27. What a FABULOUS friend! A friend of mine did the same thing. I have to use my gift card. That's a wonderful way to relax. Aren't maxi skirts the best? They're easy to pack and style. Both look great on you. Enjoy yourself doll.
