Navy Tops and Green Pants: Spring SAHM Style (And Instagram Giveaway!)

I've been embracing green and blue together more often recently. It's a colour combination I only started wearing a few years ago. I decided to try it again with green pants and navy tops, this time wearing my olive jeans with navy. I really liked the combination!

What I wore:

Top: Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I had the vague idea for this outfit in my head, I hadn't planned it out the night before like I usually do as we were at a wedding. In the morning I was feeling slightly worse for wear after a couple of glasses of champagne and not having drunk anything alcoholic for a couple years due to pregnancy / breastfeeding! I just wanted simple and easy as there were groceries to buy and kids to amuse. I decided to wear the outfit idea I had anyway, without spending time to see if it looked good. I was pleased to find out I really liked the combination.

Was a nice easy outfit, printed tank and skinny jeans. Perfect for a quiet Sunday, or as quiet as a Sunday can be when you have two boys under 5!

It's not the first time I've worn this Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag with olive, I liked the combination of the aqua and olive together. The necklace was a nice matchy-matchy touch, even if the hardware on the necklace is gold and silver on the bag. I've worn this necklace and tank together before too so I knew I'd like the result.


Last worn: bird print tank, tassel necklace, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Other ways to wearbird print tank and pencil skirt, olive pants in the office, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and maxi dress.

Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another nice and simple outfit. Jeans and a tee to take the boys to the local library for music time and to let them have a play at the playground. Again, I'm wearing the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with gold pieces even though the chain strap on it is silver. I think the gold foil polka dots on the tee didn't look bad with it!

It's not the first time I've worn these green jeans with a blue top, and I've been wanting to try this particular jeans and tee outfit combination for a while. I really liked it, pleased I finally gave it a wear.


Last worn: polka dot tee, beaded necklace, green jeans, Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearpolka dot tee and maxi skirt, green jeans and grey tee, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and printed shorts.

How You Can Wear It:

Blue and green should be seen! It's a fun and bold colour combination to try. For something different, you can try other shades of green and blue together, like navy and olive or navy and forest green. Picking a blue top with a print is another fun way to add more interest to your outfit too.

  4. Navy and green really is a nice combo! I love navy blue and always want to wear more of it, but find it hard to pair since I mainly wear blue/black jeans. I need to try it with my olive jeans! Also, I've had to give up caring about whether the hardware on my bag matches my jewelry of the day! I prefer if it does, but I can't stress if it doesn't. It was already enough effort to coordinate everything else in my outfit! Ha!

  17. Great color combination choice! I'm going to need to wear navy and green more since they look so good together. I love how the first pair of pants are more of a 'neutral' and the second pair are really bold. Hope you're having a wonderful week!
