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!

Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren Messenger Review:

Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings

Tank: Jeanswest Maya gather back tank in mid turquoise
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
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).

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.

  5. Cool bag and matching ear rings. I like your denim jackets esp the white one. I can't imagine sitting in a cold hall, hope winter isn't too cold this year. Keep Warm!

    1. The things we do to support our kids as they compete, haha! I will definitely need to bring a scarf next time, as it's gotten colder!

  6. Two fabulous outfits Mica. Love the denim jackets!
    I've had my eyes on the Adidas Superstar sneakers but always decided on other shoes. But I'm really loving how these look on your first outfit!

    Summer weather has arrived here in the Midwest US, much too hot really for early June!

    1. I've admired them but couldn't justify getting them at full price - I'm so lucky to have found these thrifting, and I wish I'd splurged sooner, they are very comfortable!

  9. Wearing a tank with just a denim jacket on top is quite an inconceivable concept for us in Northern Europe! Anyway, my favourite of your outfits - even though I'm a big fan of your chevron print jeans - is the first one. I love how you enhanced your monochromatic outfit with the blue denim jacket, pastel pink bag and those amazing neon orange tassel earrings! xxx

  11. I love the blush pink colour of your crossbody bag! I have been meaning to get a softer coloured bag for the warmer months of they year and yet somehow seem still to be purchasing brown/black bags haha. You look lovely!

    1. A pastel pink bag like this goes with so much, but I agree brown is a great neutral for a bag! :)

  12. Loving your layers! Those neon earrings are the cutest pop of color in your first outfit!

  13. Your pink bag is the perfect complement for these outfits, Mica - and I actually didn't realize the earrings in the first outfit were neon orange! They go really well with the pink and the light blue jacket. Your white jacket is going to be an item that hits 30 wears quickly, I think!

    How are you feeling about the trend away from skinny jeans these days? Would you try wide-legged pants? Just curious, as you've worn skinnies since I've known you (at least 10 years). :)

    1. I love my skinnies - I wear them 99% of the time, I prefer them over my straight legged jeans. Wider leg ones are trickier for me to pull off being petite I think, but skinnies are a staple that always work, they are my go-to!

  14. You say you like blue and pink together. Nothing new under the sun; it starts with the kids: blue for boys, pink for girls.Together it makes a lovely matching of colors.

  15. That double denim look is so great, especially with two different colors of denim. I just got a pair of dark/gray denim and I should give it a try!

    The messenger bag looks lovely!

  19. Hello Mica, I hope you're doing good!

    I love both options but I'd say the first one is my favorite! How's fall-winter season in Australia? Maybe not as cold as here but you obvously need some good jackets that can help you to survive the chill afternoons :)

    I loved the double denim combo, specially because you added a punch of color with the pastel bag!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  27. It's funny because I never really think of double denim except when it's blue and blue, or white and white...you get what I mean?? I guess it shows that color is such a huge factor for me.
    And I love a white denim jacket...I feel like I wear that even more than my blue denim one.
