Spring Layers: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Yellow Cross Body Bag

Although our recent wave of summer-like temperatures makes this seem so long ago, there were a couple of cooler days in spring that gave me one last chance to enjoy layering again. I picked some light cardigans to wear with my skinny jeans, and accessorised with my mustard yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag. It looks so nice with blue!

What I wore:

spring coffee date layered OOTD SAHM Style navy scarf grey tee skinny jeans yellow bag | AwayFromBlue

JORD COra purpleheart wood watch, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | AwayFromTheBlue
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Scarf: navy bird print scarf
Tee: thrifted grey oversize tee
JeansJeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I was glad for a cooler day giving me another chance to wear this lovely scarf. Definitely my favourite over the past autumn/winter, it was perfect for taking off and on through the day as the temperature fluctuated with the rain showers.

Despite really liking this outfit, I had a bit of a sad day. Had a last coffee date with a friend before she flew out of Brisbane. It was wonderful that things aligned for us to have one more catch up before she left, but it was a bittersweet afternoon.


It's the second time I've worn this tee and I'm wearing everything I buy twice in the month I buy it to make sure I'm making sensible purchases. My purchase review:

I'm managing to get lots of use from this tee! For just $3.50 I know I'll get my money's worth from it, despite all of the grey tees I already own...not something I needed but something I'm pleased to have in my wardrobe. I need to focus on adding more basics and this is perfect.


Last worn: grey cardigan, navy bird print scarf, grey tee, prima denim skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to weargrey cardigan and a maxi skirt, bird print scarf and stripes, grey tee and shorts, prima denim skinny jeans and boucle, black ballet flats and black jeans, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and monochrome grey outfit.


Where to Buy The Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Bag







What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | Away From The Blue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Wilma teething necklace in pale daffodil
Top: Kmart navy ribbed tank (new purchase)
JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
Shoes:  Marc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in black or silver!)
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I assumed that the next day would be just as cool, although I skipped the scarf just in case. I ended up being quite warm in this outside at playgroup when the sun came out, probably didn't need the cardigan. Again though I liked being able to wear a cosy layer once more before warmer weather stuck around and the cardigan was nice in the cooler morning and evening.

The yellow accessories went really nicely with the navy tank. I had planned more summery outfits when I bought this, but it was great to layer it up a little for its first wear for something a little different. I know I'll get lots of opportunities in the future to wear it differently as the hot weather is here to stay for spring now.



Last worn: marle cardigan, Jeanswest skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan (above). First time I've worn the navy tank as it is a new purchase.

Other ways to wearmarle cardigan and maxi dress, Jeanswest skinny jeans and blush blazer, gold mouse flats and a wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and chambray skirt.

  14. I used to dress exactly like this until a week ago, a light cardigan, a scarf and ballerinas were good to go, but now it's freezing! Every morning before I leave the house I make sure I take a thick coat with me and I wear boots!! The yellow bag is so cute! x

  24. I LOVE that bag, so pretty. And navy and yellow is such a good combo, I love both outfits. I wear a lot of navy so maybe it's time for me to branch out into yellow?

    Sorry to hear about your friend leaving, that sucks. I'm sure you'll stay in touch, and maybe she'll be back one day?

  26. I cherish the days where I don't need layering because they are so few around here, and even in summer a cardigan is usually a good idea in the mornings and evenings. I guess we always cherish what we don't have on a regular.
