Foil Print Tees, Waterfall Cardigans, Skinny Jeans and Mini MAC

Feeling a little uninspired with my winter wardrobe, I decided to go through and pick out some of my favourite pieces, these foil print tees, and build outfits around them. With cosy scarves and cardigans, as I wore them a few weeks ago when winter was in full swing in Brisbane.

What I wore:

red cardigan, black jeans, ankle boots foil print tee, aqua mini MC SAHM Style | awayfromblue

red cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

Scarf: grey and gold embroidered feather scarf

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I kind of threw this outfit together, thinking that I liked navy and red together, I love the little aqua mini MAC bag with the red cardigan, and the gold embroidered feathers on the scarf tied in with the foil polka dots. Reviewing the photos I'm not 100% happy with it, I think having something more than just the embroidery on the scarf and foil on the tee matching would have looked better. And maybe tucking the tee into the jeans!

Just one of those outfits where you love all the pieces individually but you're not too sure they all work together in one outfit!

This was a comfortable outfit though, and quite quick to pull together as I was in a rush to get the boys out the house. Still at that point where we try to do things in the morning and get home in time for naptime!

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Followed a similar outfit formula to the one above, with a waterfall drape cardigan, skinny jeans and a foil print tee. I liked this outfit much more though - perhaps because of how much I love blue and purple together. I liked the outfit so much that when I spilled a little something on it while rushing out the door and it wouldn't brush off with just water I just rearranged the scarf to hide it, ha!

This taupe skull scarf isn't just a good stain hider, it's also a nice neutral with the colourful navy cardigan, purple jeans and aquamarine mini MAC bag.

We got to playgroup to discover that it was a messy play day - it had completely slipped my mind and so I cringed every time one of the boys covered my outfit in something else sticky. They had a blast though, and true to the lovely organiser's words, all of the food colouring and flour and stains washed out of our clothes after. Even that stain I'd spilled on my tee before we left the house!

Foil Print Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Foil print tees are a fun addition to your wardrobe. They feel a little dressier than a plain tee, but are still just as easy to wear. On a colder day, just add a scarf, cardigan and skinny jeans for an easy mum-friendly outfit.

  1. That red drape cardigan is so gorgeous. I really like the dark blue one as well. Very stylish outfits, both of them. That aqua mini bag looks perfect with both of these looks.

  9. The red cardi outfit is my favourite - the aqua bag plus the red is just stunning. The second outfit is good, but the colours in the first one win out for me.

    Ugh, there is such a thing as "messy play day"? Sounds horrid!

  16. Scarves are great for hiding food stains, I use them a lot for that. And messy play day sounds lovely. For the kids at least.
