Space Dye Tees With Bright Scarves and Colourful Skinny Jeans

Adding colour to two neutral space dye tees with scarves and different shades of denim.

I recently thrifted these two space dye tees, bringing my collection up to 3 space dye tops, all thrifted! Maybe space dye was a trend a while back and now everyone is over it? I am really loving it though, it's a nice twist on an otherwise basic tee. Both of these tees were pieces in my "fill a bag for $5" opshop sale haul.

What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top (new purchase)
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Was thrilled to get this tee new with tags in the opshop! It's just a Kmart one and the original price sticker wasn't very high but it's good to be able to give new life to a piece someone kindly donated rather than throwing away.

The black dye running through this white tee makes me a little more confident wearing it. I'm a bit clumsy so white is not my usual go to colour, but the different colours in this make it easier to wear and hopefully will make anything I do spill on it less noticeable 😂

Went matchy-matchy with this, wearing my red Alexander McQueen skull scarf and skinny jeans together. The red jeans were also a thrift find! The blue denim jacket was a nice way to wear double denim but I ended up taking it and the scarf off and on through the day as it heated up.

A busy day of getting things done as I was kid free! Tax return done, more Christmas shopping done and after running a few more errands I treated myself to a massage!

Why I wore it:

Wearing more new (and new to me!) things for a busy day. We had a playdate in the park after swimming lessons, and another Lion King toy swap day, and our new fluffy family member was being dropped off before I went out for the night with some Instagrammers. It was busy but manageable until... just as we were leaving the park my son poked himself in the eye with a stick.

Added a trip to emergency to our crazy day, but thankfully the scratches were minor and we were seen pretty quickly and on our way home again to get things ready for our fluffy guest.

I like mustard and olive together so this newly purchased scarf was an obvious choice when I wanted to add a little more colour to the neutral olive jeans and peplum tee outfit. I think it worked nicely with the emerald green of the bag too! The green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag is another new purchase too!

Despite the hectic day, I liked this comfortable outfit and this tee has become a firm favourite! Such a great opshop find. I had a quick change into something more suitable for drinks and a night out - after the hectic day I was looking forward to just relaxing, and changing out of this dirt and tear stained outfit after the stick incident!


Last worn: olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag. First time I've worn the scarf and tee on the blog as they are recent purchases.

How You Can Wear It:

A classic tee is a wonderful wardrobe basic for mum life and a space dye effect adds just a little more interest to a neutral piece. It's so easy to change up the look each time you wear it by adding colourful accessories like scarves, bags, or bright jeans.

  2. You have the best thrift shop finds, Mica! The tees are great...also great for someone like me who's not the best at keeping stains off:P And so glad to hear the little one's eye poking accident was minor. Kids do sure keep you on your toes, eh?

  16. Oh my goodness, he poked himself in the eye with a stick! I'm glad he's okay! I think you might deserve a massage every day, Mica!

    Love the bright red in the first outfit - that scarf!! those jeans!! Great colour in the second outfit as well - the green bag is just right. It goes without being too matchy (hey, can we ever be TOO matchy??).

    Have a great week, my dear!

  18. Fabulous outfits. You find the best thrift deals. These tees look great. I love how you colour coordinated the first outfit. That A.M. red scarf with scull print is so chic and it matches your skinny jeans perfectly. Fantastic jacket too.
    The second outfit is very chic too. I like that yellow scarf and the R.M greenish bag. I'm glad your son is o.k, that must have been scary, with him pocking himself in the eye. It is never boring with kids.

  19. Oh no, what a horror! I am glad to hear your son is okay.

  25. I must admit that I'd never heard of space dye, so I definitely learned something here! What a scary thing to have happened with your son. They say boys will be boys, don't they? I'm loving both of your outfits here, so I really cannot choose a favourite this time. Love the injection of colour in both of them! xxx

  34. I'm so sorry to hear about your son! I'm glad it was only minor scratches. How scary! Those tops were great deals! I like space dye. It's solid enough to pair with anything, but the variations make it more special!
