Blue Knits With Different Shades Of Green and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford Bag

Wore these cosy blue jumper outfits a couple weeks ago, when the end of autumn started to bring some unexpected winter temperatures and had me reaching for the winter knits. Blue and green work well together, as these outfits show.


What I wore:

NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Knit: Jeanswest Beth ombre stripe knit pullover jumper in navy from my sister's wardrobe
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight


Why I wore it:

It was a particularly cold - and as you can probably tell from the pic - slightly windy morning! We had a couple errands to run but started the day off at our favourite trail first. The trees protected us from the breeze nicely and I ended up rolling up the sleeves on my jumper - maybe a bit too hot for both jeans and a knit on a bushwalk. Definitely appreciated the long sleeves and long pants later in the day when it cooled off though!

Since I had the blue knit and green jeans I decided to stick with this neutral navy bag. The Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford looks good against the green and compliments the blues in the knit nicely. The silver hardware was a bit of matchy-matchy with the silver sunburst necklace too.

ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight


Why I wore it:

This was an interesting day! I'd swapped my days around at the office for that week to support a milestone for my project at work so I was working from home, and thankfully my sister was free to watch the little one. It was hectic, but I was able to get a couple breaks in the day by dropping my eldest off at school in the morning and then heading out later with my sister to get takeaway for lunch. Even if she did get to sit and enjoy it with my youngest while I ate mine through a meeting at my desk in the home office 😅 Thankfully my sister did the school pick up for me in the afternoon, and I logged off just in time to make dinner before sports in the evening.

While I really appreciated the scarf in the cooler morning dropping off my son at school, it and the knit together were much too hot by lunchtime, and I spent the afternoon without the scarf for a bit. Definitely needed it back on for sports at night though!

I thought I'd try multiple shades of green in this outfit with the olive shorts and different colours of green in the print of the scarf. Surprisingly really liked this outfit, much more than I thought I would! I think the blue bits in the scarf complimented the cobalt knit and navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag nicely.


Last worn: cobalt knit, green pattern scarf, olive shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford (above).

Other ways to wearcobalt knit with orange, green pattern scarf with monochrome grey outfit, olive shorts and kimono, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford and chambray dress.

How You Can Wear It:

Any shade of blue works with any shade of green! You can see that in the first outfit with the brighter green jeans paired with the different shades of blue in the ombre stripe knit. Or in the second outfit, with the cobalt knit and olive shorts and different green shades in the print of the scarf.

Double Denim Outfits And Rebecca Minkoff Darren Messenger

With the cooler winter weather starting to arrive a couple weeks early at the end of May in Brisbane, I layered up a little in double denim. Kept it to two very different shades of denim in both these outfits, and added a little colour and prints.


What I wore:

double denim winter outfit blue jacket grey skinnies Adidas Superstar and pastel accessories | awayfromblue

grey skinny jeans with pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | away from blue

blue denim jacket with black and white stripe tank colourful accessories awayfromblue Instagram

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Earrings: Colette Sangria sunset disc stud tassel earrings
Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

This was a really cold day so layers were needed for my son's sports tournament. It meant sitting inside a big hall for a few hours in the cold, and so I wore both jeans and a denim jacket to keep me warm. I considered adding a scarf to this, but in the end went with the pastel pink bag and neon earrings to add a bit of colour instead. Early in the morning I'd wished I'd gone for the scarf for extra warmth though!

These grey skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple! Like the tank, I've worn them over 30 times and they go with everything. I thought the blue denim jacket would be a nice compliment and added a bit of lightness to the otherwise monochrome outfit with the grey skinnies and black and white striped tank. The Adidas Superstar seemed like a fun choice to match the stripes on the tank. And although the pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag doesn't really go with the neon orange tassel earrings I thought they were far enough apart that they worked and they both added some more cheer to this outfit, as well as the earrings ensuring my son wouldn't miss me in the crowd of spectators!


Last worn: orange tassel earrings, moto denim jacket, black and white striped tank, silver circle necklace, grey skinny jeans, Adidas Superstar, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren Messenger Review:

Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings

ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

Another opportunity to wear this new white denim jacket I got for mothers day! I decided it would be a nice pairing with the chevron print skinny jeans and help keep me warm on a cold morning that looked like it would be another cold day. It did end up warming up a bit, but I still kept my jacket on all day.

Just a quiet day with the school run, some errands with the little one, and of course more sports in the evening! Last time I wore these Sass & Bide chevron print skinny jeans I mentioned they look best with block colour tops - this turquoise tank was the perfect pairing. I liked the turquoise with the white denim of the jacket too, and I thought the blush pink bag was a nice complimenting accessory. I do like blue and pink together in any range of shades!

The navy tassel earrings and navy tassel necklace were a bit of matchy-matchy to make me happy, as I always enjoy a matchy-matchy outfit.


Last worn: white denim jacket, navy tassel earrings, navy tassel necklace, turquoise tank, chevron print skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger (see above).

Other ways to wearwhite denim jacket and maxi skirt, turquoise tank and pencil skirt, chevron print skinny jeans and cobalt knit, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger and pencil skirt.



How You Can Wear It:

Double denim always works if you keep the shades different, or do as I have here and wear neutral black or grey jeans with completely different coloured denim jackets on top.

Blue and Red: Printed Maxi Skirt Outfits With Louis Vuitton Neverfull | Weekday Wear Link Up

Two red and blue maxi skirt outfits with my trusty Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag. One outfit for a very special day and another for a regular Monday.


What I wore:

blue tee with red boho print maxi skirt, louis vuitton damier azur neverfull MM day at mountview alpaca farm | awayfromblue

Mica Away From Blue montview alpaca tee and red maxi skirt outfit

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings

Tee: Jeanswest Shelley garment dye tee in faded denim blue
Skirtthrifted Billabong 'Don't Think Of It' bikini red printed maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This was such a fun day! Headed out to Mountview Alpaca Farm, at O'Reillys vineyard in Canungra. The plan was to walk a couple of alpacas, get some super soft alpaca snuggles, and have a delicious picnic lunch. Turns out alpacas are really quite stubborn though and it was more briefly walking alpacas and then trying to convince them to move after they decided it was better to stand and enjoy the sun 😂 Seeing the kids turn into alpaca whisperers to try get them to move across the vineyard was really cute though! I felt that we more than deserved the massive overflowing picnic table full of food for lunch afterwards!

It was a cooler morning and I wasn't sure what it would be like in the valley so I did start the day in a denim jacket - but quickly took it off when it warmed up. This blue tee and the red printed maxi skirt were the perfect outfit on their own, without the too warm jacket. I thought the statement necklace dressed it up too. I'd worn the New Balance sneakers as I'd had visions of being dragged along by alpacas and needing comfortable shoes but our alpacas for the morning really were content to laze around for most of our time with them and let us get in lots of pats!

And while the Neverfull was a bit bulky on my shoulder and I worried about accidentally sideswiping an alpaca it was perfect for carrying all our water bottles and my camera. I got so many great photos!

Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
Skirt: Jeanswest Farrah blue tie dye maxi skirt 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This was just a regular weekday with the school run, a couple errands, a doctor's appointment, and sports in the evening. Had to take both kids to the doctors for us all to get our annual flu shots. I didn't expect it to be a smooth appointment but I also didn't expect one of the kids to begin screaming once their brother had his injection, and not stop screaming until quite some time after his own injection! Luckily the doctor was, as always, kind and unflappable and the receptionists did well to mask their giggles when it was all over. They confided that they have seen and heard worse reactions, to help us all feel a bit better! At least it's over for another year!

Dressed comfortably and colourfully for the busy day. I liked the blue and red in the first outfit so it was fun to try it again with a red tee and blue tie dye maxi skirt instead. And as it was a much cooler day, I wore my denim jacket most of the day. This white denim jacket is new, my gift from the boys for the previous weekend's Mother's Day, along with the necklace and so many cute handmade gifts! I was very spoiled for Mother's Day.


Last worn: red tee, tie dye maxi skirt, Converse, Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull (above). First time I've worn the necklace and the white denim jacket as they are recent gifts.

Other ways to wearred tee and scarf, tie dye maxi skirt in monochrome outfit, Converse and tee dress, Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancyConverse in second trimester, Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull at 38 weeks


How You Can Wear It:

Red and blue look great together, and a plain top with a printed maxi skirt is an easy way to try out this colour combination!
