Two Ways To Wear Jeanswest Kaylin Star Print Foil Tee

When I buy something, I have the rule that I have to wear it twice in the month I buy it. When I'm considering things, I like to think up two different ways to wear it right away. This post is a good opportunity to show those ways.

I only bought one thing in March, the Jeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee. I had tried on a white star print tee there a few weeks previously and put it back as it was too sheer. I couldn't stop thinking about it though, so when they had a 30% off sale I went back to get it. Was really happy to see this 'smoke marle' colour which is opaque and not as sheer as the white version. It was a definite must buy!

What I wore:

silver bracelet stack, blue shorts and Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeJeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee (new purchase)
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

First time I wore this foil star print tee was to playgroup. As it was another hot autumn day that felt more like summer, I picked the soft shorts to wear with it. I like wearing other prints with these shorts, but usually go for stripes, so the star print was a nice change. With the silver foil on the tee and the silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, it felt like a slightly dressier option for playgroup where we celebrated Baby Boy's birthday as well as the birthday of one of his friends.

The benefits of the soft shorts and soft tee were that they kept me cool as we rushed around trying to complete some errands before playgroup. As well as grabbing some groceries, we went to Kmart to print our some thank you cards from the birthday party on the weekend. I usually have a pretty bad track record with thank you notes going out on time, so I felt pretty accomplished getting printed a couple days after the party! Took me a little while longer to write and send them of course...

Last worn: relaxed print shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC. First time I've worn the foil tee as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearrelaxed print shorts and kimono, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC and colourful jeans.

Perfect for pregnancy: Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC in third trimester.

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'm so glad I got this tee in grey, While it's a really light grey, it's not so white that I worry about wearing it around the boys. Wore it for the second time to go to the Manly markets. The plan was to spend the morning walking around the markets and maybe play in the playground if the rain held off. Well it cleared into a beautiful sunny day, which of course made the beach appealing for the boys. While none of us were dressed for it, we quickly kicked off our shoes and went for a paddle. Which is impossible to do with boys, ha! There was water being splashed everywhere, they were running in the waves, and at one point a massive wipeout ensured  no-one was dry at the end of the morning. I still carry and keep a spare change of clothes in the baby bag thankfully.

Despite not being prepared for getting wet, it was still a really fun morning, and a great way to cool down as the temperatures kept rising. We had the aircon on again in the afternoon, despite it being the end of the first month of autumn.

As I'd worn this silver foil tee with the blue shorts above, I felt this chambray skirt was a little repetitive with it. I do love silver and blue together though, it's why I have so many silver accessories with all the blue in my wardrobe. I decided to add a little touch of colour with the mustard yellow micro Regan bag. I really liked this outfit combination too. This tee will go with so much!

Last worn: foil print tee (above), chambray maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag.

How You Can Wear It:

A fun way to add a little more interest to a plain tee is so pick something with a print or foil detail. In this case, the tee has both, with the foil stars printed all over. It's so easy to pair tees with other pieces in your wardrobe too. While shorts and tee is a classic staple, a maxi skirt can change things up a little for something new.

What To Wear When Breastfeeding: Easy, Affordable Nursing Fashion!

It can seem a little daunting at first trying to figure out what to wear when breastfeeding. You need to find clothing that works for your rapidly changing postpartum body, that's practical above all, that's affordable, and still makes you feel like yourself and true to your personal style. Oh, and machine washable!

To solve that dilemma, I wanted to share one of the popular videos off my YouTube channel with some different outfit ideas you can wear while breastfeeding, including some of the must-have breastfeeding accessories. The video shows you 6 outfit formulas, and I've included almost 30 outfits below that I've made from the formulas to show you how easy it is to come up with breastfeeding outfits!

The detail is in the video above, with a couple of demos of the pieces. I've also summarised the key points below for people who prefer to read rather than watch a video.

what to wear when breastfeeding ultimate guide with outfit ideas | away from the blue blog

Breastfeeding Singlet

Breastfeeding Singlet: nursing outfit staple | away from blue

This is a staple! Find them on sale and stock up. Make sure to get ones with adjustable straps and that aren't tight, you want room for things to expand when your milk comes in! In the early postpartum days they are won so much, with an extra layer on top if you want to look more pulled together.

Dedicated Nursing Pieces

Yes, these are a splurge, but the two specific breastfeeding pieces I had came in so valuable I'm glad I had them. I didn't add more to my wardrobe as I felt those two covered all the bases. You don't need many. For more outfit inspiration, see 30 ways to wear this pink Mothers En Vogue maxi dress.

Regular Dresses

Regular Dresses from your wardrobe that work for nursing | awayfromblue

You can breastfeed in your regular dresses! Just consider the kind of dress - wrap, button or jersey with a scoop neck gives you access and opportunities for breastfeeding. Halter neck dresses can work too! See more button up dresses for breastfeeding here.

Wrap and Button Up Tops

Two Breastfeeding Outfits From your regular wardrobe: Wrap and Button Up Tops | awayfromblue

Like the breastfeeding singlets, I stocked up on wrap tops too. The best thing about wrap and button up tops is that you can get them from any of your favourite stores or brands, you don't need to pay the premium that you get charged when buying a specific nursing friendly piece.

V-Neck Tees

Breastfeeding outfits: V-Neck Tees | awayfromblue

If you have a slouchy or stretchy v-neck tee, it's easy to pull the neckline down more and get access. Although this wasn't my preferred way of breastfeeding, this is a favourite for many. I preferred to pull the top up for feeding, see below.

Layering Trick For Any Top

Layering Trick: Turn Any Top Into A Breastfeeding One! | away from the blue

One of my favourite ways to breastfeed! Get any top, layer a breastfeeding singlet underneath, and just roll the top up and unclip the singlet when it's time to feed. I've seen people discuss using this for wearing dresses too, but it felt like a little much for me. I prefer doing it with a top. Loose flowy tanks are perfect for layering on top of a singlet.

4 Breastfeeding Outfits With tanks and jeans | awayfromtheblue

Must Have Breastfeeding Accessories

There are a few pieces mentioned in the video that were must have accessories to breastfeeding, and I've included a couple more essentials here too. You can see them pop up in the outfits above. Blanket scarves and kimonos double as breastfeeding covers. Silicone teething necklaces are something safe and fun for baby to tug and pull on while feeding (better than tugging on your hair!). And of course, do not forget the breast pads!

Honourable Mention: C-Section

If you've had a C-Section, you might be staying away from the pants and shorts pictured in some of these outfits. Stretchy elastic waists like maternity denim or jersey maxi skirts could be outfit possibilities!

Where To Buy Breastfeeding Friendly Pieces

I've included some links to places above to purchase the kind of items I was demonstrating in the video. First thing to do is go through your wardrobe with this post as a guide - you'll be surprised how much you already have! Next thing to do is to head out to your favourite store. You'll feel much more confident if you're wearing similar things while breastfeeding as you did before it. And of course, feel free to shop this post if you're struggling for ideas.

My breastfeeding days are over but I was glad I had so many pieces in my wardrobe that I could make work for breastfeeding, so I could use the pieces I loved so much pre-pregnancy. I hope this video comes in helpful for yourself or is something you can share with a friend. You can find more outfit inspiration in my blog archive: breastfeeding outfits.

If you need breastfeeding advice and support, look to the Australian Breastfeeding Association (AU), Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (UK), or La Leche League (in quite a few countries). You can also look up a local lactation consultant. You can contact your hospital, doctor or midwife for more recommendations.

30 Ways To Wear: Bermuda Denim Shorts: #30wears Challenge Outfits

It's a little odd sharing ways to wear denim shorts in autumn, but in Brisbane the weather usually takes a while to realise it's autumn and start cooling down, so even in March these shorts were still on frequent rotation!

My goal for this past summer was to reach 30 wears with at least one pair of shorts. After buying a lot of new pairs at the start of summer, it proved harder than I thought, as I wanted to wear all my new ones. I mention this every now and then, but 30 wears doesn't sound like a lot until you actually try do it it. You need to wear something every other week for 14 months to hit 30 wears for example. I've had these shorts for 16 months so I'm feeling pleased I managed to reach 30 wears with them.

#30wears: Jeanswest Bermuda Denim Shorts

30 Ways To Wear Bermuda Denim Shorts #30wears Away From The Blue Blog

I bought these bermuda denim shorts in the Jeanswest sale back in November 2016. They have been a summer staple for me since! They were a part cash part gift card purchase. If you don't include gift cards in cost per wear, they were $6.98 so that's 23 cents a wear! If you want to count the gift card, they were $27.99 in the sale so that's 93 cents a wear. Both under the $1 per wear that most people seem to aim for. I'm pleased I got these. They are the 'Trinity' bermuda denim shorts.

When I stopped wearing my blue jeans (haven't worn a pair since June 2017!) I did wonder if I should stop wearing these for a bit too. They are just a shorter version of blue jeans after all! I have so many summer clothes though that I didn't feel these denim shorts were worn so often that I was in a rut with them. It's been interesting staying away from my blue jeans for a while, but I have lots of other colourful denim options so I'm not missing them too much yet. I'll be interested to see how long it is before I reach for them again!

Bermuda Shorts and Tee

4 Ways To Wear Bermuda Denim Shorts With Tees | awayfromblue

A simple and classic summer outfit, a pair of denim shorts and a tee. I think this is a universal summer outfit for most of the world, and definitely a go-to for me. You can also see my love for studded sandals in this set of photos, ha! To change things up a little, sometimes I'll add an extra layer and throw a kimono on top.

See more: 30 ways to wear studded gladiator sandals.

Denim Shorts and Kimonos

5 Outfit Ideas With Bermuda Denim Shorts and Kimonos | away from the blue

As mentioned above, I love my kimonos, and denim shorts and kimonos are an easy summer option! I love the simplicity of a colourful tee or tank and shorts with a fun printed kimono, it adds an extra layer to your outfit, a little more interest, and is a good way to change things up slightly. All of these 5 kimono outfits look different, but follow exactly the same formula.

Bermuda Shorts and Printed Tanks

3 Ways to Wear: Printed tanks and kimono outfits | away from the blue blog

With plain blue denim shorts, it's a good opportunity to wear some printed pieces. I have a lot of printed tanks and it's good to wear them with these shorts as you don't have to worry about matching, they are a blank base to whatever you wear.

Denim Shorts and Print Mixing

How To Print Mix With Stripes: kimonos and bermuda denim shorts | away from blue

Just like the set of outfit ideas above, this is another way to wear printed tanks. The denim shorts mean you can be more adventurous on top, and they are a good base to try some print mixing with. These photos combine the printed tanks and kimonos ways to wear together in one outfit, and were a lot of fun to wear.

Bermuda Shorts and Pink Vest

3 outfit ideas with pink vest and bermuda denim shorts | awayfromblue

I like to layer a little in summer, but every now and then I want something different from kimonos. This is where this dusty pink vest comes in. It's a nice light summer layering option as it adds a splash of colour to an outfit without adding any extra warmth, perfect for making a plain tanks and shorts outfit a little more interesting.

Denim Shorts and Green Tanks

Green tanks and bermuda denim shorts, 4 different ways to wear | awayfromtheblue

It's easy to see what my most-worn top is with these denim shorts! 3 out of the 4 outfit ideas above are the same tank, just with different kimonos! I've really embraced wearing green and blue together, and so wearing a green tank with these blue denim shorts has been a frequent outfit. Khaki green looks just as good as this bright emerald green.

Monochromatic Outfits with Bermuda Shorts

5 monochromatic outfit ideas: navy tops and blue bermuda denim shorts | away from the blue

With blue shorts, a blue top is a no-brainer for a quick monochrome outfit. Just like the green tops above, again you can see some repeats here. The navy wrap top has been worn twice with the shorts, just swapping out the accessories to make it look a little different. If something works and you love it, I'm a big fan of repeating the combination again! As someone who loves blue, monochromatic outfits with navy tops and blue shorts make me happy.

Bermuda Shorts and Long Sleeves

Wearing bermuda denim shorts in autumn spring with long sleeve tops | away from the blue

Of course shorts aren't just for summer. You can easily wear them in spring and autumn too. In Brisbane it's not that cold for most of the year, so it's easy to wear shorts frequently! A simple way to wear shorts for slightly cooler weather is to add a long sleeved top (even though the first long sleeve outfit pictured is with a dress). If a long sleeve top on it's own isn't enough even with the longer length of the bermuda shorts, you could add some closed in shoes too to make yourself a little warmer. Converse are my usual go-to!

While I'm not a shorts in winter person, I do try and wear my shorts as much as I can through the year - the mild Brisbane weather makes that achievable!

2 Ways To Wear A Dress As A Top: Work And Weekend With Colourful Balenciaga Bags

I love the dresses I have in my wardrobe, but sometimes I like to try different things with them. This dress below is the perfect casual dress, I've worn it to Bondi beach and I love it as a beach cover-up. It's so easy to make the dress work in other ways too though. Below I'm wearing it as a top in two different ways, one for the office and the other for a day of errands.

What I wore:

Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram office suit separates pencil skirt and dress worn as a top pink bag
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer

Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress (worn as top)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

After a few days signed off sick from work, my voice still wasn't fully back, but I could kind of hold a conversation, so I headed into the office. This was a mistake and I should have stayed home. I ended up getting told to go home by two different bosses. By lunch time I took their advice, called it quits and went home.

While I felt horrible, my outfit was designed to make me feel better, with the colourful and cheerful magenta Balenciaga day bag as a pop of colour with all of the black. The jersey blazer and skirt look a bit 'suit-like' in an attempt to project an air of professionalism with all my coughs and wheezes! Despite having a horrible day and feeling too exhausted to do anything other than order takeaway for dinner, I did like this outfit. It's a shame I wasn't well enough to enjoy it, ha!

Last worn: jersey blazer, printed dress, pencil skirt, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
Bag: Balenciaga regular Pompon bag in Murier

Why I wore it:

Feeling much better, I wore the dress again as a top a few days afterwards. Instead of layering a pencil skirt over the top, I just bundled it up and partially tucked it into my denim shorts, which have been on heavy repeat lately. As the weather is getting cooler here in Brisbane, the longer sleeves from the dress worked nicely with the slightly longer length of the bermuda shorts.

Just like the pink Balenciaga day bag above, I picked this Balenciaga Pompon bag for an extra touch of colour with the otherwise monochromatic blue outfit. I have been enjoying using this Balenciaga bag lately, as you may have seen on Instagram.

Added the Converse as it was a bit of a showery day and as much as I love my trusty Havaianas that you'll see in most of my outfit photos, I don't like them in the rain much! The Converse were much easier for running around chasing after the boys as we attempted to achieve multiple things in one morning.

Last worn: printed dress (above), bermuda denim shorts, Converse. First time I've shown the bag on the blog as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Other ways to wearprinted dress in winter, bermuda denim shorts and kimono, Converse and pencil skirt.

How You Can Wear It:

Try rewear your favourite dress differently by layering and wearing it as a top. For shorter dresses, you can add a pencil skirt over the top to instantly make them a work-appropriate length. If the dress is a light soft fabric like this viscose one, scrunch it up and tuck it into a pair of shorts for a different casual summer look.

30 Ways to Wear a Grey Maxi Skirt: #30Wears Challenge Outfits

A 30 wears post with this classic grey marle jersey maxi skirt is so overdue. It's been worn nearly 50 times (48 exactly!) since I bought it in my third trimester four years ago.

The #30wears challenge is committing to wearing things you buy at least 30 times. As I take daily outfit photos, I have over 6 years of outfits to look back on and see all the different times I've worn things. Blog labels and searches in the archives come in helpful for pulling these posts together, and it's fun to see how many things I've hit 30 wears on.

#30Wears: Grey Marle Jersey Maxi Skirt

30 ways to wear a grey jersey maxi skirt | away from the blue blog #30wears

It's no secret that I love maxi skirts, and I've posted a few #30 wears posts featuring some of my maxi skirt collection (see them at the end of the post).

Maxi skirts are for petites too! I got lucky with this Target one, the perfect petite friendly length with no hemming required. It was $25, so that's 52 cents a wear so far on it. It's got a lot of life left in it still, and it's not going anywhere from my wardrobe. Not bad for an impulsive pregnancy buy four years ago!

Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees (and a Tank)

outfit ideas grey jersey maxi skirt and graphic tees | away from the blue

A plain grey maxi skirt makes it easy to wear fun printed graphic tees, as it's a great neutral base. Even though one of these is a graphic tank instead of a tee, you can see it's still just as simple to wear. A nice easy outfit to pull together, the graphic top adds interest that the plain skirt lacks.

Maxi Skirt and Long Sleeve Tops

3 ways to wear grey maxi skirt and long sleeve tops | awayfromtheblue

Maxi skirts work well in cooler weather with long sleeve tops. The long skirt protects your legs from the cold and keeps you cosy, and a longer sleeved top is an extra layer for a cooler day. If it's really cold, a scarf makes you even warmer. Again, you can see in these three outfits that the plain maxi skirt base means you can add fun printed scarves, bright colours, or even a top with embroidery detail, without your outfit feeling too overpowering.

Maxi Skirt and Layers

6 different ways to layer a maxi skirt for cooler weather | awayfromblue

Sometimes you need a little more than a long sleeve top with a maxi skirt. As I wear my maxi skirts year-round, I've worn them with all kinds of layers. You can see the variety in these outfits, with a denim jacket, cardigans, a blazer, and a kimono. I've also worn this skirt in the middle of winter with a leather jacket when it's been really cold. These layering options are great pieces to add in spring or autumn when it's too cool to wear a skirt and top on it's own.

Grey Maxi Skirt And Summer Outfits

3 easy ways to wear a grey maxi skirt in summer | away from blue

A maxi skirt is really made for summer though, it makes summer dressing easy. And if you have babies or toddlers, the long maxi length means you can run around with them and not worry about things being too short or showing more than you intended when you bend over to pickup the kids, or something they've dropped for the tenth time that day, ha!

Grey Maxi Skirt and Monochromatic Outfits

3 monochromatic outfit ideas with grey jersey maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

Lots of colourful outfits so far, but you can go completely neutral with a grey skirt and create a monochrome or monochromatic outfit. I like the two shades of grey together on the end there, but with the black v-neck tee is my favourite. I'm still sad that tee didn't survive through too many incorrect wash cycles on the washing machine and had to leave my wardrobe.

Jersey Maxi Skirt In Pregnancy

jersey maxi skirt in third trimester | away from the blue blog

third trimester outfits with jersey stretchy maxi skirt | away from the blue

Since I bought this maxi skirt while I was pregnant, it makes sense that the most frequent way to wear it has been with a baby bump. It's been so nice having this piece that I could wear through my third trimesters with both my boys - and still be wearing and loving it afterwards. I'm impressed the elastic has held up too, they were pretty big baby bumps near the end!

Jersey Maxi Skirt Postpartum

postpartum outfit ideas with a grey maxi skirt | away from the blue blog

Forgiving jersey material, a soft stretchy elastic waistband, all the things I loved about this skirt in pregnancy make it a great postpartum choice too. Much nicer pulling this on in the newborn days than attempting to squeeze into something with buttons, a zipper, or zero stretch! Having something you know will still fit and make you feel great makes getting dressed easy after being up all night with a newborn, and anything to make parenting easier is a winner!

Grey Maxi Skirt for Travel

travel style with a grey jersey maxi skirt: outfit ideas | awayfromtheblue

I've gone on about how great this jersey maxi skirt is to wear, but the material is perfect to travel with too! It's comfortable for a long day of sightseeing, it can be crumpled up in a carry on bag and doesn't need ironing at your destination. For pregnancy travel (the middle pic) it was wonderful, and for running around Sydney with two toddlers (the left and right photos) it works just as well.

It makes me happy to have a piece in my wardrobe that's wrapped around my baby bump for both boys that's still going strong. It's nice to put together a post like this and see the bumps at different stages. So many fun memories attached to the times I've worn this skirt. I'm enjoying continuing the 30 wears challenge this year as it's great putting these posts together.
