Jeans, Striped Tees and Colourful Cardigans With Chloe Small Paraty Bag

Skinny jeans, stripes, sneakers, and colourful cardigan outfits for winter days. I feel I wear jeans every single day, I've gotten a bit lazy with my winter dressing. At least the colour schemes of these outfits are a little varied!


What I wore:

louis vuitton scarf, navy stripe tee, purple cocon cardigan and skinny jeans sneakers and Chloe paraty bag | awayfromble

Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

I love purple and blue together, although this bright blue Louis Vuitton shawl does steal all the attention away from the cute purple cardi! Despite it being a rainy day it wasn't too cold - so this light cardigan over the navy striped tee was all I needed to stay warm. 

I had the school drop off, an appointment afterwards, and then worked from home until it was time to pick the kids up, and we had a quick shop at Kmart. Thankfully the rain stopped in the afternoon, although it was a little bit of a pain doing the morning drop off in the rain! This scarf is so good at keeping me warm though.

Wore my little Chloe Paraty bag in periwinkle blue, even though it doesn't match the navy stripes of the tee or the bright blue of the scarf, I thought it complimented those shades and the purple cardigan nicely. It also fit a library book for me to read while waiting at my appointment - had such a nice chat with the nurse about the kinds of books we like to read.

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesAdidas Stan Smith sneakers in white and navy
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

This was a particularly windy day - perhaps a thicker cardigan may have worked better! Maybe even tying my hair back - the wind wasn't kind to it even though I wasn't outside long snapping these pics!

Another quiet day with the school run and working from home. I wanted to wear this mustard cardigan with the navy striped Coca-Cola tee - both were thrift finds from a sadly now closed local opshop. Surprisingly I haven't worn them together before! I felt they were a really good combination and added a lot of lightness to this outfit that would have been a bit neutral otherwise with the white Stan Smith sneakers and the grey skinny jeans.

Again, the Chloe small Paraty bag doesn't match any of the colours in the outfit, but I thought it complimented the mustard nicely.

How You Can Wear It:

A cardigan can add warmth and a little extra colour to a simple striped tee and jeans outfit in winter. A bright scarf can add even more colour too!

Monochromatic Winter Outfits With Matchy-Matchy Pops of Colour Scarves and Bags | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, sharing two fun outfits where I took advantage of winter layering to add some bright accessories to monochromatic grey tees and black jeans outfits, with cosy black knits.


What I wore:




JacketRebecca Minkoff Ruana poncho
ScarfAlexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
TeeJimmy Rees Pfiiiiizer darling vaxed tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: thrifted Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr Q Convertible clutch in electric violet


Why I wore it:

This is the first time I've worn this cosy knitted kimono this year, and it reminded my why I love it! It's so very warm! Had a nice quiet day as I didn't have to do the school run (hubby and I share the responsibility when we both work from home). I was extremely comfortable in this jeans and tee outfit all day as I worked from home, and the knit was easy enough to slide off my shoulder in the afternoon when I went out to my vaccine appointment.

The only downside of this outfit was that with the magenta Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the knit, you can't see the fun "Pfiiiiizer" design on the tee that made me want to wear it to my appointment, too perfect not to wear! 

I did love how the scarf added more colour to this outfit though, and it is not an exact match to the Marc Jacobs bag, but a pretty close one that made my matchy-matchy self happy. This bag is a thrift find I don't wear neatly often enough. It was perfect for this outing, it's roomier than it looks so I had all my essentials in there plus a library book to read while waiting.


Last worn: knitted kimono, magenta skull scarf, grey tee, Nobody Denim black skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Marc by Marc Jacobs convertible clutch.

What I wore:




JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
ShoesAdidas Stan Smith sneakers in white and navy
BagRebecca Minkoff quilted jumbo Love bag in cobalt


Why I wore it:

Another weekend outfit sneaking into the Weekday Wear Link Up! Since I liked the outfit above so much I wanted to recreate something similar a few days later. This Louis Vuitton shawl and the cobalt Rebecca Minkoff jumbo love bag are such a good pairing together. I felt that the bold blue accessories really brightened this outfit up a lot, especially with the loose way I threw on the scarf so you could see more of it. The grey tee and faded black jeans and black cardigan looked a bit dull otherwise, even with the white sneakers.

I liked the scarf and bag together so much that even when it warmed up in the afternoon I kept the scarf on, and just took the black cardigan off.

Was a busy morning of driving my kids to their friends houses for drop off playdates, and then since I was kid free and we had finally shaken the winter coughs that plagued us in the last weeks of the school term and over the winter school holidays, I felt safe enough to go visit my friends who just had a baby, dropping off another little present and chatting with them about life with a newborn, which they are adjusting to so well.


Last worn: black knitted cardigan, Louis Vuitton shawl, grey tunic, faded black skinny jeans, Stan Smith sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff cobalt jumbo love bag.

How You Can Wear It:

Winter is the perfect time for layering - and adding colour to dark layers with bright accessories! For a little extra fun, try matching a bright bag with an equally colourful scarf - even if the shades are just similar instead of an exact match, it's a great way to brighten up your outfit.
