Jeans, Cosy Knits and Luna Blue Edie Bag

With colder winter days in Queensland, I've pulled out some of my warmer winter knits to keep me cosy!

What I wore:

JacketRebecca Minkoff Ruana poncho
Necklace: mixed metal hammered pendant necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie regular shoulder bag in Luna blue

Why I wore it:

I really like this knitted poncho. It's too warm to wear most of the year in Brisbane, but on this chilly winter day it was perfect! Just like a snuggly blanket it kept me warm for working from home, and then in the afternoon when we had some errands to run and a birthday present to buy for my son's friend.

With the pretty pattern on this poncho I stuck to neutral pieces underneath with this navy tee and the black skinny jeans and black Converse, I added a little more colour with another shade of blue from this Rebecca Minkoff Luna blue Edie bag, that goes with everything!
This was a cold morning that was threatening rain and I was honestly tempted to stay inside all day! I'd booked the kids in for a couple of school holiday events though so we braved the chill and wrapped up warmly. Got a lot of fun photos too, with a wildlife show (even the lizards had their own hot water bottle!) and then a coding event at the library.

This red waterfall drape cardigan is one that can be buttoned up on the shoulders. Great for breastfeeding in winter and using as a cover up, it also turns into a cosy wrap tunic if you just button up both sides. It's the first time I've worn this red one like this (although I've done it with the navy version of this cardigan before) and I really liked this. I skipped the scarf and added statement earrings instead to dress this up a little, but the cheerful red of this cardigan makes enough of a statement on its own.

Paired it with my dark grey jeans, and again the black Converse and Luna blue Edie shoulder bag.

Last worn: red waterfall cardigan, statement earrings, grey jeans, black Converse (above), Rebecca Minkoff Luna blue Edie bag (above).

Striped Tops, Jeans and Blazers With Blanket Scarves and Mimco Crossbody Bag

Adding some cosy blanket scarves for the cold winter commute to the office recently! Both of these blazer and jeans outfits have striped tops as well as the colourful scarves.

What I wore:

Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
TeeAtmos&Here 3/4 sleeve stripe tee in berry white
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
Shoesthrifted white leather Chuck Taylor All Star Converse sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagMIMCO Mim-Mazing crossbody bag in black and light gold

Why I wore it:

A cold and foggy morning had me reaching for jeans and this Louis Vuitton shawl that is one of the cosiest blanket scarves I own. I like the bright cobalt blue pop of colour it adds to the black blazer and black jeans outfit. The blue goes so well with the red stripes on my long sleeved top as well. Kept me nice and warm on the cooler commute to the office.

With the black blazer and black jeans I reached for more black and wore my little Mimco Mim-Mazing crossbody bag again.

Last worn: black blazer, Louis Vuitton shawl, burgundy stripe tee, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, leather Converse, Mimco Mim-Mazing crossbody bag.

TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesAdidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagMIMCO Mim-Mazing crossbody bag in black and light gold

Why I wore it:

Similar outfit combination to the one above, but much more colourful! I went with my burgundy jeans that hadn't been worn in a while and were overdue another wear.

The grey blazer is lighter than the black one above, and the colourful mixed print scarf helped brighten up the outfit more too. Even if, unlike the day I wore the outfit above, this ended up being a very warm day and I'd shed the scarf by the afternoon on my way home from the office.

Again I wore the little black Mimco crossbody bag. It looks just as good with this more colourful outfit as it does with the matching black clothes in the outfit above.

Last worn: grey blazer, fern print scarf, striped tee, burgundy jeans, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Mimco Mim-Mazing crossbody bag (above).
