Two Ways To Wear: Coca-Cola Stripe Logo Tee

Most of my opshop purchases are impulse buys, like this tee! It's rare for me to have enough luck to go thrifting for something specific and find it. I was so thrilled to come across this striped Coca Cola logo tee though, for just $1 (the whole rack was 8 pieces for $4, but there is limited browsing time when your child suddenly announces he needs to pee!). Since logo tees are perfectly on trend, I knew it would be an easy piece to add to my wardrobe. Here's two different ways I've worn it. Both involving a little print mixing!

What I wore:

red boho print maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram denim jacket red boho print maxi skirt Rebecca Minkoff love bag guitar strap
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Skirt:  thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoes: Asos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

A not so chilly winter morning meant I could take my opportunity to wear my denim jacket. It's going to sit unworn in my wardrobe for a couple months until winter is over now! It wasn't too cold to wear in the morning but was a little cooler in the evening. The Chelsea leather ankle boots helped keep me cosy too.

I did the day car drop off and pick up and worked from home. This outfit was perfect for that, I do really like this red maxi skirt with the denim jacket, and I wanted to wear that combination again (I last wore the denim jacket and red maxi skirt here). I thought the striped tee was a good print mix with the print on the skirt, and the red logo tied in perfectly. I really loved this outfit!

Was all so easy to put together, and so comfortable.

BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Another little touch of print mixing with this tee. Unlike the outfit above, I did wish this outfit was a little warmer when I sat outside in the playground with the boys. It was so funny as the kids were running around playing happily and us mums were shivering and trying to find the warmest (sunny and not as windy) spots to watch the kids playing!

Aside from wishing I'd worn something a bit warmer than a blazer, I did like this outfit. I wanted to pick out the navy stripes from this tee for a bit of matchy-matchy. This bird print scarf was so perfect. I loved the colour combo and the print mixing was nice too. I've worn this scarf with stripes before and enjoyed it then too.

I did add just a little touch of red with the bag - the red logo is fun as a pop of red on it's own, and I'll need to try that next time I wear it, but if you've read my blog a while you will know I can't resist a little matchy matchy-ness!

How You Can Wear It:
Stripes are such an easy print to try print mixing with. If you're not a fan of print mixing though, you can still take some inspiration from the outfits above. Pick out a colour from your logo or striped tee and wear coordinating pieces like the red skirt in the first outfit, or coordinating accessories like the red dress and navy scarf in the second outfit.

  1. I can't believe that is a thrift find! I thought you purchased this from a retailer because I've been seeing these tees everywhere. I've been on the fence about getting one, mainly because I'm not sure I'll wear it enough and I'm trying to limit my consumption with fashion. I do love how you've styled this tee on both looks. The maxi and jacket is definitely my fave (as well as fave combo too!)

  2. What a steal! I love graphic tees too as they are easy to wear. My favorite is the 2nd outfit with the your cardigan, legging and brown boots! I am dreaming of cooler weather and this is an outfit I can live in all winter long!

  3. Hi Mica
    I have to tell you that a Coca Cola tee and a denim jacket is the embodiment of the American way of style ahahah
    I like the first look, although I really like in your second look the bag. BTW today I also have a tee with an amreican design, can you guess ???
    I think today in both looks you are an american girl !!!




    Lots of love

  5. That top was such a fabulous deal (although I giggled at why you didn't get more). And you and I are on the same wavelength with the print mixing---it's so fun once you get the hang of it!!

  6. Wow, $1 for that t-shirt? What a steal! I love how you put each look together with colors that are echoed in the t-shirt (red lettering + red skirt or red bag, blue stripes + blue scarf) it helps bring it all together with the subtle print mixing! And of course, I love RM bags so loving both of your bags!

  7. That tee is such a fun find! I remember that I used to have a thrifted red "Coke is it" tee shirt as a teenager and I LOVED that thing and wore it to death. I love both of these looks and would never have thought to pair the tee with that maxi skirt but I love how it turned out!
