Jeans, Converse, Red Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag

First, happy to share that I was one of the featured bloggers of the week on the Weekend Wear linkup!

Now what I've been wearing. I've been enjoying red recently. My little red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag is such a great pop of colour with an outfit, but sometimes I can't resist adding a red scarf as well.

What I wore:

Flares and Converse: printed shirt and red accessories | AwayFromBlue

Printed leather jacket, Rebecca Minkoff red saddle bag | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
ShirtJeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale and on sale in brown!)

Why I wore it:

Another foggy start to the day, although it did warm up again later on. I was glad to have my leather jacket in the morning, even though I took it off in the afternoon when I went out with my sister.

Had a busy morning running a couple of errands, so the Converse were a good shoe to pick as I dashed around. Perfect for our afternoon walk with my sister as well, enjoying the slightly warmer day.

Last worn: printed leather jacket, red skull scarf, mixed print shirt, flared jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to wearleather jacket and printed jeans, red skull scarf and grey dress, printed shirt and a LBD, flared jeans and a neon tee, Converse and a maxi skirt, two ways to wear a saddle bag.


Where to buy the Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag:








What I wore:

SAHM Style: skinny jeans, converse, print mixing with tartan scarf and stripes | Away From Blue

Scarf: red tartan scarf
Top: Jeanswest 'Marina' stripe henley
JeansJeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale and on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

I was so incredibly excited when I wore this outfit! My friend was visiting Brisbane and I hadn't seen her in person for a few years so I was really looking forward to catching up and introducing the boys to her. We ended up just walking around Southbank which was really nice, as I hadn't had a good look since they redid the area. Toddler T was fascinated with the community garden. Again, I wore Converse as they are ideal for a lot of walking.

The striped top and tartan scarf are a combination I thought up the night before when trying to plan out what to wear. I didn't have a lot of time in the morning so I'm pleased that they looked nice together and I didn't have to come up with something else at the last minute.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, red tartan scarf, striped henley, skinny jeans, Converse (above), Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag (above).

Other ways to wearred tartan scarf in the office, striped henley and printed shorts, skinny jeans and boots, Converse for a weekend trip, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag and a striped maxi skirt.

  2. Mica, I don't know which outfit I like better. They both look so good. I love that saddle bag. I've never really taken notice, but now I want one. It's a great color! I love the mix of red, grey and black. Looks so good. What's really catching my eye is your scarf in the second picture. It is beautiful and goes great with that saddle bag.

  34. You know I've always believed that red is the perfect colour for accents. when it comes to creating an accent in an outfit and adding that pop of colour or pattern (or both), red is a lovely option!


    I love how you added red in both of these outfits. That red bag is really adorable. Moreover, those scarves are so perfect. I like the fact they're not only red but also printed...a touch of print and tartan pattern is so fun. Plus, it creates a cute subtle mix of prints.

    You look very pretty and fresh in both of these looks. Well styled!

  36. I will admit, red is one of those colors I tend to neglect. lol I think it's because of my hair? Growing up I was always taught red hair and red is a no no, but c'mon, it's 2016! Let's break all the fashion rules. (; I recently picked up a red striped long sleeve tee for the fall, so we will see how well I can rock some red. (;
