Two Ways To Wear Navy: With Green Or Purple Skinny Jeans

Again, taking advantage of some cooler spring days with a bit of rain to layer up a little. It meant I could try layering my navy cardigan with my colourful jeans. While blue and green is a colour combination I've only recently started wearing, blue and purple is an old favourite. The navy waterfall cardigan was the perfect topper with both of these outfits, especially when paired with the navy Regan bag.

What I wore:

TankJeanswest Florence print long line tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Bit of a busy day when I wore this! I had a few errands to run with the boys in the morning, after having a mobile tailor come over and hem a few pieces for me. I wore this out to watch Church Online at my friends place in the evening too.

You might remember me mentioning before that my normal tailor retired, so I was on the lookout for someone similar. I've tried the 'chain' stores in the shopping centres and been unhappy with the results and the price. MAMAS Mobile Alterations Mending and Sewing was recommended to me and I'm so glad. She came over, set up her machines and got to work on the little pile of alterations I had. In an hour she had fixed or altered 4 pieces for me, it worked out really cheaply as you pay for an hour instead of per item. Not sponsored, I just think it's an awesome service, especially as she didn't mind that I had the boys running around at home too!

Back to the outfit! I knew I wanted an extra layer in the morning and evening so picked this navy cardigan to wear with the green jeans - and I'm glad I did as I really loved this combination. It definitely wasn't needed during the day, but came in helpful running around the shopping centre aircon in the morning and it was nice to have in the evening too.

Why I wore it:

Since I loved the outfit combination above so much, it made sense to wear something similar again. You might remember I've worn these purple jeans and navy cardigan together before, I really like the combination of colours. I was looking up how many times I'd worn these jeans to see if I could get a 30 wears post together and I was surprised I hadn't worn this tank with the jeans before, I was sure I had. Gave me the idea to actually wear the combination together. I like the navy and gold with the purple jeans, and the navy in the printed tank tied in so nicely with the cardigan and the Rebecca Minkoff regan bag.

I wore this to take the boys to BrisBricks - a big lego exhibition in Brisbane. While I knew we'd be indoors and away from the rain, I thought the cardigan would be good in the aircon at the event. I was glad I'd worn this, after we got soaked walking from the carpark inside. 2 adults and 2 kids don't fit under one tiny umbrella! It was nice having it to keep me warm as I shivered in the hall - although how much of that was the air conditioning and how much of that was because we got wet outside I don't really know!

How You Can Wear It:

It's so easy to introduce another colour to your outfit by throwing a cardigan on top. Paired with bright jeans, or any other colourful item of clothing, it's a fun way to try some different colour combinations with your outfit. I've worn navy with purple and green here, but you could also try navy with pink or other neutrals like black, white or grey.

  2. The green and blue combo would probably too much for e to feel comfortable in, but I like the blue and purple mix up.
    So sorry to hear you got soaked, I hope you won't get ill.

  3. Navy has always been one of my go-to colours all year round. I don't feel too comfortable wearing too many bright colours, but navy is so perfect and easy to style. I really love that cardigan, and it's something that I'd love to wear myself, to be honest! Adore the way you styled it, as always, hun. Especially the second outfit - the shirt has such an interesting print, and I love the necklace! <3 xoxo

  16. The navy and green are awesome together - good on you, Mica, for getting outside your comfort zone! I love the purple/navy/gold mix as well - it's very luxe looking.

    Wow, I would LOVE a mobile tailor! I would happily pay for someone to come to my house for a couple of hours and hem/fix/sew things for me. What a great idea.

    Oh, getting caught in the rain is the worst! I feel for you, hon.

  25. I think this post just goes to show that navy can be worn with a lot. The other day I wore my navy Maje coat I got in Paris with black boots and a dark brown suede bag and some how it worked. You look great in navy and love the color jeans. And a mobile tailor? OMG that is amazing!!

  34. That's so cool that you get a tailor to come to your home! I really love the loose printed tops you wore with your colored pants. Adds a nice contrast to the fitted bottom. Getting soaked and sitting in the aircon while soaked are both recipes for the shivers! I hope you will be getting the boys their umbrellas so that the momma can keep warm too!
