Colourful Cardis, Printed Tanks, Jeanswest Prima Denim Skinny Jeans. SAHM Style

Now that my knee is feeling much better with daily exercises after intensive physio, I'm spending more and more time without the bulky knee bandage. Which means I can wear my skinny jeans again! Although it's Spring here in Brisbane, it's not always warm enough for bare legs, so I'm pleased to be able to wear all my jeans again and not just my flares.


Shortly before my knee injury I wore a simple but colourful outfit with a printed tank, bright cardi and skinny jeans. I really loved that outfit so much, so I've been wearing similar outfits recently.

What I wore:


NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
TopJeanswest 'Hannah' print tank in paradise pink multi
JeansJeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual (plus a hair tie!)
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

I'm never really sure of the colour on this tank! (Is it pink, coral, red or a mix of them all?!). It was too chilly for bare arms so I was looking for a cardigan to wear with it, and going to pick a plain grey one, when I thought I'd give this brighter red one a try. I haven't worn it in a while. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, I liked this combination!

Cooper has had his 'summer trim' so we took toddler T out to the hairdressers for his first haircut too. He did really well, it helped that the hairdressers were lovely and used to kids. He looks less and less like a little baby every day, he's growing so fast!


Last worn: red cardi, striped tank, skinny jeans, studded mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.

Other ways to wearred cardi and a maxi skirt, striped tank with a leather jacket in winter, skinny jeans layered up in winter, studded mouse flats and a maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag and printed shorts.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Again, loving the printed cardigan and printed tank combination, so I wore it for a day out with toddler T. We went to the library for toddler time (singing and dancing) and then had morning tea together and did a little bit of running around our local Westfield. Well, he did most of the running, I said sorry to the laughing sales assistants every time he let go of my hand and sprinted into a shop doorway. It's amazing how you can't help but smile at a tiny toddler walking around with the biggest grin on his face, we got lots of chuckles from passers by too. When I'm in a rush, it's impossible, but when I've got nothing on my calendar except spending time with the toddler, it's nice to let him 'explore' a little and to just slow things down to his pace.

I'd been looking for something to wear one day and had thought the purple cardi would look nice with this tank, but picked something else to wear instead. It was nice to get around to wearing it, even if I do wish I'd worn a different necklace as this one gets 'lost' a bit in the print.

  1. Everyone should have a few printed cardis in their closet. I only have two so I should really get a few more. Anyhow, I do love both of your outfits. That red cardi you wore in the first outfit is so well paired with that redish/pinkish coral top...such a stylish combo. I sure do like the colours you used.

    As for the second outfit, I find that top really interesting, the print is gorgeous. You did well to paired it with a purple cardi, it makes it stand out even more..Plus, that bag is adorable!!!

  15. I am glad your knee is finally feeling better. Must be so annoying having to wear that bulky knee protector for so long! Not to mention not be able to wear your favourite skinny jeans! Mr. Cooper almost made a full frontal appearance in the first picture HAHA I was excited for a second before realsing he was still facing to the side (probably starring at a bird I am sure lol).

  42. Printed top with a cardigan is my go to look. It's easy, looks put together and simple. I think you totally rocked both of these outfits. So happy to hear your knee is feeling much better! So I noticed you're typing toddler T now. Wait what?! haha When did this happen?! They grow way too fast. I'm still guilty of calling Penny "baby." I'm reminded every day she's not a baby any more.
