Pink Bag, Purple Scarves and Black and Grey Outfits

If you follow me on instagram or twitter you'd know that August has been a tough month health-wise for the boys and I. It's the last month of winter here in Australia and pretty typical for a few bugs to be going around. We just seem to be catching them all and every time I think we're recovering we get hit with something else!

Despite wanting to just stay curled up in bed, there have been days we've had to get out of the house for appointments or occasionally we were well enough to venture out for something fun. I brought my magenta Balenciaga day bag out to add some colour to my outfits. The wonderful pink colour makes me smile every time I wear it, it's a great mood booster!

What I wore:

Neutral outfit with colourful pink and purple accessories SAHM style | AwayFromBlue

Black cardi jeans, grey tee, Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta | AwayFromTheBlue
Jacket: Cotton On black knit wrap cardigan
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
TeeMarc by Marc Jacobs blossom pocket tee in grey
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

I was feeling better and had regained my voice so we headed out to run a few errands and get groceries. When I'm not feeling the best I like to bundle up with a scarf, so this knit cardi and cosy purple scarf were perfect. I really liked the purple and pink accessory combo too, nice with the black and grey.

This grey tee hasn't been worn in a while - it's one of those pieces I tend to 'save' and skip over in my wardrobe as I want to wait until it's a 'better' day to wear it. Decided it's been neglected for too long as I last wore it 8 months ago so wore it anyway even if it was a quiet day.


Last worn: Ray-Ban wayfarer, black cardigan, purple scarf, grey tee, skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

Other ways to wearblack cardigan and a printed maxi skirt, purple scarf and navy top, grey tee and a maxi skirt, skinny jeans and khaki tank, black ballet flats and flares, Balenciaga magenta day bag and a graphic tee.

BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

The outfit above was so simple and perfect to wear, so when we were well enough to go back to playgroup I wore an incredibly similar outfit. Just swapped the black cardigan and jeans for grey ones, and a black tee instead of a grey one. Another easy neutral outfit with some colourful accessories. I think I liked this purple leopard print scarf with the magenta bag even better than the combo above.

  1. Purple is my favourite colour but it's not a colour I wear often. I love how you incorporate purple into your outfit. Your dog look so cute in that little sweater! :)

  2. There seems to be so much going around. We're approaching the Winter months here and I'm not looking forward to that part. HaHaHa Mica, I love the mix of purple. The different shades are gorgeous! I also like how you've paired it with grey! I must remember that. I'm always pairing grey with a darker grey! HaHaHa I need to change it up. Two great outfits.

  8. I hope you're feeling good and the kids are doing better! When one gets sick, then it is impossible for the other not to get sick, luckily soon you will be having warmer months :) Bags and scarves are great for adding pop off colour. Grey&pink combo is pretty :)
