30 Ways To Wear: Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag & Weekday Wear Link Up #30wears

This Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag is overdue a 30 wears post, I hit 30 wears with it a while ago!
Every month, I pick something in my wardrobe I've worn 30 or more times and put together a post showing you the ways I've worn it over the years. I got the idea from The True Cost documentary and I hope it gives you some inspiration for the pieces in your wardrobe.

The Weekday Wear Link up is here too, just scroll on down through this picture heavy post.


30 Wears: Rebecca Minkoff Navy Regan Satchel



30 Ways to wear Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel medium bag | away from the blue blog



This bag is the perfect neutral - a big navy rectangle that's neither too formal or too casual so it works on my stay at home mum days and for my part time office job. I fell in love with it seeing its similarity to the Balenciaga city bag but at a much lower price point, so I snapped it up when it was on sale!

Cost Per Wear


I bought this bag in the Rebecca Minkoff sale at the end of 2017, for $241.45 (including the insanely high shipping charges when buying from Rebecca Minkoff online and shipping to Australia!). At 37 wears that's $6.53 per wear. It will be easy to continue to get this cost per wear down further over the years, especially as this bag still looks new after almost 3 years of wear. Even after having the contents of an entire water bottle accidentally dumped inside!

With a big neutral bag like this it's easy to change up the look by accessorising it a little - it's a great "blank canvas"! From a silk scarf, llama bag charm or even swapping out the bag strap, just a small change can make the Regan bag look a little different each time you wear it.


Navy Regan Bag and Black Outfit Pieces

Navy and black is a colour combination I wear quite a lot! I like the two neutrals together, whether it's adding this navy bag to an outfit with a lot of black in it or wearing a navy and black outfit and matching the navy clothes with the navy bag.

Blue being my favourite colour, I do wear a lot of it! I like a bit of matchy-matchy too so if you have a monochromatic blue outfit, why not go all out and add a navy bag to your outfit too for a complete monochrome look?

Finishing up with 4 casual outfits showing how versatile this bag is - shorts, jeans or skirts, the Regan works with every outfit (and rather crucially fits mine and the kids water bottles inside so I don't need to carry the baby bag when I wear it). I was reaching for it quite often before Coronavirus changed the world, perfect bag when I was out with the kids.

Striped Tanks and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

These striped tanks are firm favourites, and I often post them together! While one is navy and white stripes and the other is black and white stripes they both pair so perfectly with my brightly coloured jeans that I've been wearing more lately, now it's autumn and cooling down.

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with red jeans and striped tank | away from the blue

Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was such a fun day! Some restrictions had been lifted, allowing for both picnics (previously you could only exercise outdoors, not stop and sit) and travelling 50ks from home (previously they recommended staying in our suburbs as much as possible). And while they were relaxing the rules even more the day after this, my sister and I stuck with the current rules on this day and found a spot 50ks between both of us to have a picnic.

We couldn't have asked for better weather - it was a gloriously sunny day, but not too hot, and our picnic spot was mostly deserted, giving the boys plenty of space to run around. As you can see in the insta pic there we had a LOT of space! It was such a nice day and so good to see my sister in person again - while we do frequent family video calls, nothing compares to catching up in person!

While I thought about a pretty dress I realised jeans would be a bit more practical for running around with the kids and their kite - and so I tried to put a little effort in with my hair instead. I did the old no heat overnight curls trick I used to do a few years ago, it turned out okay.

Picked the speedy bandouliere bag as it was fuss free for sitting on the grass, so easy to clean, you just wipe down the canvas!


Last worn: white striped tank, feather necklace, red skinny jeans, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere.

TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

More relaxed restrictions in Brisbane means the kids are back at school! The early morning start had me reaching for a jacket to cover up my arms and this drawstring waist one I thrifted for $1 back at the start of the year was perfect! It hadn't been worn previously as it had been a warm autumn and we spent most of it isolating at home like the rest of the world.

With the black striped tank and the black jacket, my outfit needed a little extra colour and these bright green skinny jeans were perfect! The first day back at school after an extended break from the virus went well - my son missed his regular routine and I know I'm not as good at teaching as his actual teacher, especially when I had to work from home 3 days a week too.


Last worn: black striped tank, Happiness Boutique necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag (above). First time I've worn the jacket as although I bought it back at the start of the year it's been too warm to wear until now!

Striped Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic and it goes so well with jeans! To add a little extra colour you can try a brightly coloured pair of jeans like these red and green ones, or even introduce a little extra print mixing like I have with the damier ebene speedy bag.

Green and Yellow Worn Two Ways: Jeans and Tee | Weekday Wear Link Up

Jeans and and a tee again! It was my home isolation outfit of choice back when I wanted to get out of pyjamas or loungewear, but also didn't want to put in too much effort if I wasn't going anywhere.

This time I round I paired my yellow tees with green jeans and some cardigans, as the autumn weather had truly arrived in Brisbane and the extra layer was needed. Now it's properly winter and a few more layers are required.

What I wore:

pastel yellow tee with olive skinny jeans and grey cardigan autumn work from home style | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram| grey cardigan with pastel yellow tee and olive skinny jeans
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this yellow tee with olive - it looked nice with my olive shorts so I knew I'd wear it with these olive jeans in the cooler weather. I really liked the combination, i think the muted shades work so well together. I added a necklace for a little bit of extra interest to my outfit and I think with the long necklace and long grey cardigan the tee looked better untucked - it's a bit oversized so I usually tuck it in, but I liked the longer lines of this outfit.

The grey cardigan wasn't quite as cosy as my daggy old bathrobe I usually wear around the house, but it was a more formal choice for a couple of zoom sessions I had on that day!


Last worn: yellow tee, tortoiseshell necklace, grey cardigan, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearyellow tee and red maxi skirt, grey cardigan and maxi skirt, olive skinny jeans for a long haul flight.

Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a much bolder outfit with the mustard tee and the green skinny jeans. Again, this isn't a new colour combination for me, I love wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with these green jeans, but it was the first time I'd worn this mustard tee and jeans together. As it was such a cold morning and I had to pop out to the post office, I added another colour to my outfit with this cosy navy cardigan.

Again, I've worn this navy cardigan with the green jeans before, but I really liked the way the trio of colours worked together in this outfit. Especially with the matching navy necklace! The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag was a nice neutral with all of the colours in my outfit, and it was still packed and ready to go after my last trip out the house a few days before.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, mustard tee, statement necklacegreen skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to wearnavy waterfall cardigan and pencil skirt, mustard tee worn two ways, green skinny jeans and floral kimono, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere and maxi skirt.

Yellow Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A yellow tee is a fun colour to have in your wardrobe! Yellow is a bright pop with a neutral pair of blue jeans but it works well with other colours like green and navy too.
