Striped Tee Dresses & Bright Bags For A Pop of Colour

Sharing two simple striped tee dresses, and the last long hair outfit photo! I donated my hair back at the end of March, I've just been so behind with photos. Since I wait until I have some outfits that make sense to post together, these outfits were worn a little while apart, one with long hair and one outfit with short hair!

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
DressAll About Eve striped black tee dress
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Simple tee dress for a busy day. Every time I wear this dress I'm so glad my sister didn't want it any more! I like wearing it with purple, I've done that before. It's a nice touch of colour with the black. Decided to add in some pink accessories too, I think these Balenciaga studded sandals and the rose gold necklace pair nicely with the purple mini MAB tote bag, even though they are both different shades of pink.

Took the boys out to our favourite playground in the morning, then had a couple of errands to run before sneakily managing to buy a birthday present without the birthday boy noticing!


Last worn: All About Eve striped tee dress, rose gold necklace, studded Balenciaga sandals, Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag.

What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
DressCotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia
Leggings: Cotton on black 3/4 length leggings
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

A little bit more autumn-like with this outfit! I added some leggings to combat the cool morning and also as I worried this dress might be a little too short for a trip to the playground and rhyme time at the local library with the boys.

It was also my first attempt to curl my shorter hair. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it could have been a lot better! I think I will wait until it grows a bit more before I try again. As a graduated bob, the back is just too short to hold a proper curl.

Unhappiness with my hair aside, I did like this outfit - the leggings were a good choice for in the library sitting down on the ground with the boys. I think the Balenciaga day bag is such a fun pop of colour with the black and white stripes too.


Last worn: black and white striped tee dress, leggings, navy tassel necklace, rose gold sandals, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

I have included some Cotton On ones that are the same style as the one I'm wearing above - it's available in a range of prints!

How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee dress is a wardrobe basic, and a classic black and white one like the ones above works so well with bold colourful accessories. Pink and purple bags really pop with black and white outfits.

Printed Maxi Dresses & Pink Balenciaga Bags

The simplest outfit of all has to be a printed dress, and you'll know if you've read my blog a while that maxi dresses are my favourite! I wore both of these recently for different occasions - a maxi dress works for so many events.

What I wore:

Jeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress with magenta balenciaga day bag studded sandals summer dinner outfit | awayfromblue

Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Second wearing of my Christmas dress! I bought this dress back in October. I usually stick to my 'wear twice in the month I buy it' rule for fashion purchases, but decided to treat myself to a new dress for Christmas and put this aside until the day.

This time around, I wore it to head over to my parents for dinner. Nothing formal, just another excuse for me to wear this pretty dress! These studded Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals are a staple for me over summer - the neutral shade just goes with everything - and were an obvious choice with the dress.

I thought the magenta Balenciaga day bag would work nicely with the pink and the purple in the print. While not an exact match to the shade of pink in the dress, I still really liked this combination together. I thought the navy and gold tassel necklace was a good pairing with the dress too.

Unfortunately I managed to break (and kinda repair) this necklace part way through the evening. It's not quite as symmetrical now, although it is back in one piece! Despite breaking the necklace, we had such a nice time at my parents.


Last worn: high-low maxi dress, navy tassel necklace, gladiator sandals, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

This outfit was for a much more casual occasion, although I again opted for the ease of a maxi dress. We had an early morning start to surprise hubby at the airport as he arrived after a week away in America. An even earlier start than expected as his plane arrived 20 minutes ahead of time, so instead of leisurely getting ready I had to hurry up and get us all fed and dressed and drive to the airport. In the end I probably didn't need to get there as early as I did, his plane was only actually 10 minutes early in the end, but as we were surprising him and he wasn't expecting to see us, I wanted to be there ready with our signs so he'd see us as soon as he stepped through customs.

Since I wanted to put in a little bit of effort into my outfit, I went with my trusty blue maxi dress. It's just as comfortable as pyjamas when you're sitting around at the airport waiting for someone to arrive! I've worn it with pink before in the past, I really like blue and pink together. I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag with it before though! I really liked the combination.

I picked a pink necklace which kind of matched, and my sorbet Balenciaga studded sandals which matched the bag exactly. Simple accessorising for the morning rush!


Last worn: pink beaded necklace, blue printed maxi dress, Balenciaga studded sandals, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Printed Maxi Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed maxi dress is such a time saver, it's an instant outfit. They are easy to accessorise too! You can pick similar colours out of the print to wear in your accessories and add some neutral pieces like in the first outfit, or just pick a contrasting colour and wear that in all your accessories like I have in the second outfit.

Striped Tee Dresses and Purple Balenciaga Work Bag

Continuing the theme of blog posts this week and wearing some more new things, two new-to-me striped tee dresses.

My sister had a wardrobe clear out just before Christmas, and hers was a much more successful one than mine. I shared a video of some of the things I scored. I was thrilled to get two striped tee dresses, something I've wanted for a while. I've worn the black one before, but it was the first wearing for the white one. With the dresses from my sister's wardrobe and the bag from my bestie's wardrobe, it's easy to see you don't need to head to the stores when you want something different! Look through things friends or family are discarding from their wardrobes 😂


What I wore:

Dress: Cotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia (from my sister's wardrobe)
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

I wore this for a rare kid-free couple of hours to shop! I popped out to browse the Kmart new year clearance sale. They had all their Christmas stock marked down, and I walked away with quite a lot for next Christmas! I got a trolley full of goodies for $15, and just one of the things in the trolley was a $15 tree. As well as Christmas things, they had a lot of clothes and some toys marked down so I enjoyed getting to wander through the store and even try things on at my own pace without kids in tow! I've already shared the shorts I got, and I picked up a peplum top and some new PJs for myself too.

Kept things simple with my outfit. Just the tee dress, silver pendant necklace and earrings (both Christmas gifts) and then Balenciaga accessories. This tee dress was one of the new with tags pieces my sister never got around to wearing. Worked out nicely for me! I did mull over the pink studded sandals with the purple studded bag, as the bag has silver hardware and the sandals are rose gold. I think they are far enough apart that it worked though.

While I think this dress might be a little too short for days with the kids, it worked out perfectly for a morning shopping by myself, and was nice on a hot and humid day!


Last worn: purple Balenciaga work bag, Balenciaga studded sandals. First time I've worn the necklace as it was a Christmas gift, and first time I've worn this dress from my sister's wardrobe.

What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Work

DressAll About Eve striped black tee dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the striped tee dress above, I wore this on a day out with the kids. This dress is just slightly longer and has a longer hem in the back that made me feel more comfortable wearing it out for a morning of running errands.

Usually when I'm with the kids I'll take a small cross body bag as I'll be carrying the bulky baby bag too. On this day, we weren't planning to be out long and I didn't feel like carrying the baby bag all morning, so I decided to put the wipes, water bottles and a changing kit in my Balenciaga work bag. I was feeling quite happy with my decision until we got to music time at the library - with an entire room full of kids dancing and stomping and running around my poor bag was trampled on a few times (mostly by my boys though!). I think I'll stick with the small cross body bag that fits inside the baby bag if needed for a while longer!

Handbag stomping aside, I liked the way this outfit looked! I love the pop of colour with the purple against the black and white stripes. This dress was so nice on an overcast but humid day too. I kept the accessories simple, no necklace and just my trusty Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals, as it really was too hot to contemplate wearing anything more.

Last worn: black striped tee dress, studded gladiator sandals, Balenciaga purple work bag (above).

Striped Tee Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A tee dress is a lovely easy outfit option for a hot summer day. With lots of choice for designs, you could pick one in your favourite print (mine is stripes!). If you have young kids, best to consider the length of the dresses to avoid any unfortunate moments in the playground! Definitely something you want to try on at home or compare measurements with a dress you already have and know is kid-friendly.

Navy Tanks, Jeans and Kimonos

Wearing my favourite kimonos, trying a new outfit colour combination and an old favourite. And also sharing more about what happened when a bird flew into my house, as I mentioned in my Insta stories a few weeks ago.

What I wore:

Navy printed kimono and rubbed tank with burgundy pants, tan ankle boots, brown Chloe Paddington bag | AwayFromBlue

Chloe Paddington in 2007 Brun with burgundy pants | Away From The Blue
NecklaceZanele 40 handmade rope necklace
Tank: Kmart navy ribbed tank
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

This was set to be a busy day. My mother in law came over to watch the boys for a few hours. Before I hopped in the car, as I always do, I stopped for a minute to take photos. Like usual I left the house door open so the boys could watch me and know I was still nearby. Just as I'd taken my photos a flock of noisy miner birds flew overhead and I stood there amazed as one flew into the house through the open door.

Ran in to Toddler T excitedly telling me there had been a bird flying around the ceiling. Poor thing then flew into the window and fell....into Cooper's waiting jaws. Luckily he dropped the little guy on command, and I was able to wrap the injured bird up in a tee that was next to the window. Quickly put him in a cosy little box to rest, called the vet and was going to have just enough time to drop off the bird before racing to my appointment.

The little bird perked up on the way to the vets, was nice to hear him scrabbling around in the box. Was not so nice when I pulled up at the vets, turned off the ignition and he flew out of the box and around the car! After capturing him again and putting him in the box again (much harder this time with him flapping!) I took him into the vets. I'm fairly certain he has no wing damage from Cooper's teeth after he flew around the car, but the vet checked him over to confirm before releasing him. And I was only 5 minutes late for my first appointment of the day, phew!

Outfit wise I really liked the colour combination with the navy and burgundy and brown. I wasn't sure at first but decided to wear it anyway and try something different, and ended up loving this. It's been so long since I last carried this Chloe paddington bag too, brought it out after my bestie wore hers recently. Not a kid friendly bag with the heavy padlock, but nice for spending time without the boys.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, navy kimono, navy ribbed tank, burgundy pants, tan Chelsea ankle boots, Chloe Paddington bag.

Other ways to wearnavy kimono and denim shorts, navy ribbed tank and pink vest, burgundy pants in the office, tan Chelsea ankle boots and chambray dress, Chloe Paddington bag and printed pencil skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: navy printed kimono and green maternity tank, burgundy pants and a belly band with an early bump, ankle boots and dress in second trimester, Chloe Paddington in Second Trimester.

JeansJeanswest Super Skinny Jeans in Mid Indigo
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (on sale, 20% off!)

Why I wore it:

This is an outfit pic that got lost on my computer- it's from April! As you can probably tell by the sandals. Definitely not sandal weather now, winter has arrived in Brisbane.

To break up the monochrome outfit I added the pink Balenciaga sandals and the printed kimono. I love this grey kimono, it's got so many different colours in the print that it works nicely with so much of my wardrobe.

Unlike the outfit combination, I knew this colour combination would work as I've worn the navy tank and floral kimono together before.

This pic had gone unnoticed on my computer for a while as when I was wearing this outfit I took a picture for a Jeanswest competition on Instagram. Sadly I didn't win, but I did have fun taking over 20 photos as the boys ran around in circles! This outfit picture was in a big block of those photos and I hadn't gone through them to realise I still had an unposted blog picture. Glad I could share it now, as I really liked this outfit.

More Neutral Navy Tanks Under $50:









How You Can Wear It:



A navy tank is a great neutral basic that can be worn many ways in your wardrobe. If your outfit is feeling a little plain or monochromatic, add a printed kimono for some more colour and interest. Picking a similarly coloured kimono like in the first picture is a good fail-safe idea if you're playing with colours elsewhere in your outfit.

Maxi Dresses and Denim Jackets For Church

With the autumn weather starting to arrive in Queensland, you will be seeing lots of different levels of layered outfits if you follow me on instagram as the weather is quite varied. One thing it thankfully always is though is cooler in the morning and evenings. That means for two early morning starts to attend church I needed an extra layer over my maxi dresses, and this denim jacket was perfect.

I bought this denim jacket either before or during my uni days - can't remember exactly. I'm sure it's clocked up more than 30 wears but I didn't regularly take outfit pictures before I started the blog. I love a maxi dress and denim jacket outfit when it's cooler.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop

BeltRalph Lauren silk scarf worn as belt
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This was my Easter Sunday church outfit! I usually go to (and volunteer at) Church Online. But for special occasions it's nice to go to an actual physical church building. Currently swimming lessons are stopping us from going regularly but I'll want to take the boys more often when they get bigger.

This is easily one of my favourite maxi dresses - it was a perfect pregnancy dress too, and is a dedicated nursing piece. With the denim jacket it was perfect for a morning at church, watching the boys eat chocolate eggs with lunch and then going out for dinner with the family.

Picked the scarf to wear as a belt as pastels are perfect for Easter, and I'd started to feel I was always wearing this maxi dress with a gold belt so wanted to change it up a little. I think the pink, lilac and aqua of the bag all worked really nicely together in this outfit.


Last worn: denim jacket, Ralph Lauren scarf, MEV nursing maxi dress, Balenciaga sandals, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC bag.

Why I wore it:

This was another church outfit! Wore this to go to a new church that a family friend had started up. It was their first time in a new building and it's kind of close to where we live so we wanted to go and support them on their first day.

Although this maxi dress is a bold and colourful choice on it's own, I decided to branch out a little and pair the mustard yellow micro Regan bag with it. A very colourful outfit for me, but one I really loved!

Button Up Shirts And Denim Shorts with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

First, Shopbop currently have a 40% off sale on! Only for 3 days, so be quick! You can shop it here.

Last time I wore a button up shirt and denim shorts outfit formula it was much too hot. Not an ideal choice for summer! Now some autumn weather has arrived and it was a little cooler, it was the perfect choice of outfit.

What I wore:

mint pinstripe button up shirt casual denim shorts OneTeaspoon outfit | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey | Away From The Blue
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
Shirt: Target mint stripe shirt
ShortsOneTeaspoon Hawks shorts in Fox black (C/O, on sale!)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey
NailsOPI Russian Navy

Why I wore it:

It's been a while since I'd worn this shirt so got it out. I'd planned to wear it in the postpartum days for easy breastfeeding but the weather and my larger than usual chest at the time didn't allow it! Even though I've worn it with a baby bump in the past... it fits perfectly again now. Nice and simple outfit for a morning spent with my mum and taking the boys to rhyme time at the library.

The bag is one I haven't worn for a while either! It's easily the favourite Rebecca Minkoff bag in my collection. I do have a lot of the cute mini MAC bags but this one works for every situation - you can wear it cross body, it can fit a ton in and I've worn it to work as well as just for days like this where I'm running around with the boys.

Previously when I gushed about this bag I was sharing some of the places you could get it second hand online as it was discontinued. I'm really pleased it's being made again and I know if I wasn't doing #6MonthsWithoutShopping I'd probably have bought it in another colour too! (I like this blush pink one)


Last worn: pinstripe shirt, OneTeaspoon denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Why I wore it:

Very similar to the last time I wore this shirt, just with different accessories. I really like the yellow against the navy. I've been loving this mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag as it goes so nicely with blue, and I have a lot of blue in my wardrobe. Wore this to go to my local ABA mother's group.

First time I wore this shirt I wasn't a fan of how it sat tucked in, so I wore it untucked again. I need to try it tucked in again with something other than shorts. I'm thinking it will be great with a pencil skirt when I return to work soon.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, navy textured button up shirt, bermuda denim shorts, Balenciaga sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag.

How You Can Wear It:



Button up (or button down!) shirts don't have to be reserved for corporate life. They pair nicely with denim, and are great with denim shorts for mild spring or autumn days. If you're breastfeeding they are a practical and economical option as you probably already have one in your wardrobe.

Bermuda Denim Shorts: Minimalist Vs Maximalist Outfits

Although I bought these bermuda denim shorts in November last year, I am consistently surprised when I go to create a new 30 wears series post and find out I haven't yet worn them 30 times. Over summer and our currently mild autumn I feel that I've been wearing them too much, and have to try and change it up a little and give some of my other shorts some love!

I'm wearing them below with a classic minimal combo with a simple top, and with an extra layer for a more maximalist outfit.

What I wore:

cobalt blouson tee, Bermuda denim shorts floral somedays lovin' kimono | AwayFromBlue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey, MAM Morning After Bag silver bracelet stack | AwayFromBlue
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Wilma teething necklace in pale daffodil
Top: thrifted Dotti blue tee
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (on sale!)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this for Baby Boy's weekly weigh and spending some time with my mum in the afternoon. 4 months into 6 months without shopping and I'm still uncovering things in my wardrobe that haven't been worn in a while. Last time I wore this cobalt blouson top I wasn't impressed with the way it fitted while breastfeeding, but decided to hold onto it a little longer. Since I'm breastfeeding less often I'm finding things are fitting a little more like they used to pre-baby. I am glad I kept this top, I enjoyed wearing it.

Despite the top having an embellished neckline, I wanted to add a little more to the outfit so went with a colourful printed kimono. I've worn this top and necklace together before, but felt the kimono added a little something extra. The grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag was the perfect accessory and has recently been re-released, so it's in stock now!

Why I wore it:

I picked colourful accessories to wear with this outfit too, but it's more minimal with just the teething necklace and sandals adding colour to a basic top and shorts combo. The blue Balenciaga bag goes perfectly with the navy wrap top. Wanted something easy and breastfeeding friendly to wear for Baby Boy's vaccinations.

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't add an extra layer to the outfit and kept it basic. Had anticipated a tough day with a cranky baby so simple was best.

How You Can Wear It:

Sometimes a simple outfit is just what you need for the day's activities, other days you might want to be more maximalist and add prints and colour with a piece like a kimono or printed cardigan. It's helpful to have a good go-to base like denim shorts that will work with whatever kind of outfit you have in mind.
