Two Ways To Wear a Mustard Cardigan: With Green and Orange

This mustard cardigan was an awesome opshop find and just $2! It's a great way to add more colour to a winter outfit. I decided to be really colourful when I wore it recently and paired it with some other bright colours: green and orange.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | away from the blue

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really like green with yellow, and it's not the first time I've worn these green skinny jeans with yellow. I loved the bright combination, nice and cheerful for a wet day. It started raining on me as I took these pics!

Thankfully we didn't get too wet at school pick up and drop off, and the rest of the day I was working from home so I was cosy and dry. Jeans and a tee is a perfect work from home outfit, and this cardigan was a much dressier alternative for keeping warm than my daggy old bathrobe when I had a zoom call 😂

With the turquoise tassel necklace adding a little more colour too I went with a neutral bag, this Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is a classic that goes with so much.

Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This was inspired by an outfit I saw on Instagram on theshoestringshopper. As soon as I saw her orange and yellow outfit I wanted to try it myself with this orange tee and my mustard yellow cardigan. She was inspired by someone else to try it too, it's good seeing how inspiration spreads on Instagram!

I really liked this combo! It was something very different for me and I did feel very visible for school pickup and drop off and sitting on the sidelines of the gym as my son returned to his regular sports sessions. Feels like life is getting so busy now that things are reopening, but it's good to return to regular routines.

Despite a busy evening, we still had plenty of time for a browse in Kmart after dropping my eldest son off at school. No luck getting more pantry containers I'd hoped for, the stock shortage is painfully clear in many aisles. My little one did help me pick out some more Little People, Big Dreams books for our collection though! Kmart has them for $8 each, half the price of everywhere else I've seen them.

Stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out the brights, as well as my grey skinny jeans as black felt a bit too harsh.


Last worn: mustard cardigan (above), marigold tee, tortoiseshell necklace, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above). 

Other ways to wear: mustard cardigan and chambray skirt, marigold tee over a dress, grey skinny jeans and leopard print, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi dress

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse in third trimester


How You Can Wear It:

Mustard is a very versatile shade of yellow! You can use a mustard cardigan to bring some colour to darker or neutral winter layers. It works equally well paired with other bright things in your outfit too like the green skinny jeans or the orange tee.

Kimonos In Winter With Skinny Jeans, Grey Tees and Converse

Sticking with the jeans and tee outfit formula that has been on repeat lately - it's perfect for winter days! To mix things up a little, I'm wearing some slightly different colour schemes with grey tees, red (and burgundy) jeans, and then some very different kimonos to suit the different temperatures that week!

What I wore:


Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Top: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I was glad it was a warm day to give me another chance to wear this duster kimono - I picked it up in the January sales and while it was a complete impulse buy I've been liking how easy it's been to integrate into my wardrobe. I've used the colours in the prints to match it to yellow and a different shade of red before, I knew it would make a great matchy-matchy combo with these red skinny jeans.

Like the skinny jeans that were a thrift find, this grey tunic was another opshop find. And since I got it in a "fill a bag for $5" sale it works out to about 63 cents! With the bright jeans and the printed kimono I thought a nice neutral grey tee was a great piece to wear in between and I was hoping the thrifted pieces would bring me luck at the opshop! I really liked the silver necklace with this outfit too, even if the hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is gold.

After the school drop off the little one and I headed out to our recently reopened opshop. There were a few new rules, such as using hand sanitiser and wearing the provided gloves, but it's a small store so actual social distancing was tricky! I bought a couple of things - a book for myself and some DVDs and a PJ masks playset for the kids. I didn't get a chance to look at much else as my son was fairly insistent that we had to pay for the toy and take it home right away so he could play with it 😂 It is missing a few pieces based on what I can find online but it was just $2 so I wasn't going to say no!


Last worn: floral duster kimono, grey tunic tee, silver necklace, red skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Other ways to wearfloral duster kimono and shorts, grey tunic tee and pencil skirt, red skinny jeans and peplum tee, Converse and printed dresses, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and matching boots.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC vs MAB Camera Bag







What I wore:



JacketRebecca Minkoff Ruana poncho
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Unlike the kimono above, this was made for winter! Last time I wore it it was much too warm, but when the winter weather arrived again later in the week this was the perfect outfit. I wore this to work from home, and to pop out in the afternoon to pick up some party supplies for my son's upcoming birthday party.

This poncho / kimono is just a big cosy knitted blanket so it was perfect for the cooler evening and so comfortable for working from home. But a more dressed up option than an actual blanket or my usual go-to bathrobe 😂

This darker grey tee is one of my favourites and it was definitely overdue a wear again! With the darker grey I thought these burgundy skinny jeans were a good accompaniment. The woven kimono makes enough of a statement on its own but I couldn't resist adding a couple extra prints with the striped Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and the tortoiseshell necklace.

The only downside to this outfit was that I kept getting the kimono caught on things all day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos are fun ways to add more interest to a plain shorts and tee outfit. While a longer sleeved duster kimono might work on a warmer winter day, a cosy knitted version comes in helpful on the colder days!

Striped Tanks and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

These striped tanks are firm favourites, and I often post them together! While one is navy and white stripes and the other is black and white stripes they both pair so perfectly with my brightly coloured jeans that I've been wearing more lately, now it's autumn and cooling down.

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with red jeans and striped tank | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | picnic outfit  red skinny jeans with louis vuitton speedy bandouliere and striped tank

Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was such a fun day! Some restrictions had been lifted, allowing for both picnics (previously you could only exercise outdoors, not stop and sit) and travelling 50ks from home (previously they recommended staying in our suburbs as much as possible). And while they were relaxing the rules even more the day after this, my sister and I stuck with the current rules on this day and found a spot 50ks between both of us to have a picnic.

We couldn't have asked for better weather - it was a gloriously sunny day, but not too hot, and our picnic spot was mostly deserted, giving the boys plenty of space to run around. As you can see in the insta pic there we had a LOT of space! It was such a nice day and so good to see my sister in person again - while we do frequent family video calls, nothing compares to catching up in person!

While I thought about a pretty dress I realised jeans would be a bit more practical for running around with the kids and their kite - and so I tried to put a little effort in with my hair instead. I did the old no heat overnight curls trick I used to do a few years ago, it turned out okay.

Picked the speedy bandouliere bag as it was fuss free for sitting on the grass, so easy to clean, you just wipe down the canvas!


Last worn: white striped tank, feather necklace, red skinny jeans, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere.

Other ways to wearwhite striped tank and shorts, red skinny jeans and winter layers, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere and maxi skirt.

Jacket: thrifted black Emerson drawstring waist utility jacket
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

More relaxed restrictions in Brisbane means the kids are back at school! The early morning start had me reaching for a jacket to cover up my arms and this drawstring waist one I thrifted for $1 back at the start of the year was perfect! It hadn't been worn previously as it had been a warm autumn and we spent most of it isolating at home like the rest of the world.

With the black striped tank and the black jacket, my outfit needed a little extra colour and these bright green skinny jeans were perfect! The first day back at school after an extended break from the virus went well - my son missed his regular routine and I know I'm not as good at teaching as his actual teacher, especially when I had to work from home 3 days a week too.


Last worn: black striped tank, Happiness Boutique necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag (above). First time I've worn the jacket as although I bought it back at the start of the year it's been too warm to wear until now!

Striped Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic and it goes so well with jeans! To add a little extra colour you can try a brightly coloured pair of jeans like these red and green ones, or even introduce a little extra print mixing like I have with the damier ebene speedy bag.

Kmart Tiered Floral Print Dresses

Even though it's autumn in Brisbane it's good to give these Kmart tiered floral dresses another wear before I start layering up - especially as we had a very warm April, when I wore these. Two very different occasions though, one to stay home and another for my weekly grocery shop!

What I wore:

Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress floral print for easter at home 2020 awayfromblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Easter at home isolation outfit floral tiered Kmart maxi dress
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I wore this back on Easter Sunday. I'd ordered some eggs for the boys, with guaranteed Easter delivery, but as it hadn't shown up I'd had to make the dash to the shops for something for them to hunt for the day before. I was feeling a bit upset about not having the things I ordered and the limited options at the stores the day before Easter, as well as the sadness of celebrating another isolation birthday on the same day and missing both my family and our church family. So I decided to dress up anyway to boost my mood. This pretty floral maxi dress is one I've had a few years but it hasn't actually been worn on Easter before, seemed like the perfect thing to wear.

It was a strange Easter at home, but we still had an indoor egg hunt for the boys, they got dressed up in their Sunday best too, and we video called with family for Easter and to celebrate the isolation birthday. We even had birthday cake, and thanks to Church Online we had our church service at home too.


Last worn: Kmart floral maxi dress, gold heart necklace, Havaianas.

Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I actually wore this dress outside! Continuing with my "grocery shopping uniform", a simple dress, the only shoes and bag I wear outside now, my Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. All my other bags are stored away in my handbag cupboard waiting for a time when it will be a bit safer to change bags around and bring bags I've worn outside back into the house.

The navy blue of the bag matches the background of the dress really closely, and if I hadn't been restricting myself to just taking one bag out whenever I leave the house I probably would have changed this for something with a little more contrast.

Didn't wear this all for very long though - went out, got groceries and then as soon as I got home put the accessories away and changed out of these clothes. Because despite social distancing rules in place people seem to think it's okay to reach over you and walk up next to you at the supermarket! At least there was a little more stock on the shelves this time.


Last worn: floral tiered sundress, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag.

Tiered Floral Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A floral dress is so easy to dress up or down - perfect for celebrating at home or navigating the aisle of the grocery store. Floral prints aren't just for spring either, they work well all year round, as I wore these on warmer autumn days.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Maxi Skirts and Leopard Print Tees

Simple work from home style for today's Weekday Wear Link Up! Wearing the last things I thrifted before the opshops shut down due to coronavirus, these beautiful maxi skirts. With them being plain block colours I decided to wear my leopard print tees with them. Such easy outfits, but I felt really pulled together!

What I wore:

Sass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print with navy thrifted maxi skirt | awayfromblue

awayfromBlue Instagram | SAHM work from home isolation style neon leopard print sass bide tee with navy maxi skirt thrifted
Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This Sass and Bide neon leopard print tee is a favourite, it's one I don't frequently wear but every time I do I love it! It's a cropped style, which means it's just a normal length on my petite self, and so I didn't tuck it into the skirt at all, just left it loose. It was a hot day although it's autumn in Brisbane and this was a cool and comfortable outfit to wear. I really liked the orange leopard print with the navy maxi skirt too, navy and orange look so good together.

Two bloggers I follow, Sheila and Ivana, recently wore similar outfits too! Definitely a great silhouette.

The only thing that didn't go so well with this outfit was that it got covered in chalk when the boys did some chalk art in the afternoon. Getting dressed for isolation at home with a 4 and 5 year old is tough as my clothes never stay clean long, ha!


Last worn: neon leopard print tee, leaf necklace, thrifted navy maxi skirt, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearneon leopard print tee and jeans, thrifted navy maxi skirt with stripes.

Wardrobe Tour (And Handbag Storage!)







What I wore:

kmart statement necklace and grey leopard print tee outfit with ochre maxi skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | workign from home isolation outfit leopard print tee ochre maxi skirt affordable kmart thrifted style
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This is such an affordable outfit! The ochre maxi skirt was an opshop bargain at just $4, I picked the leopard print tee up for just $2 at Kmart and the necklace is Kmart too! Not wearing my bags every day has highlighted to me how affordable my wardrobe really is - if you don't include the designer bags! 😂

I liked the leopard print tee and the skirt together, but the outfit felt like it was missing a little something. This necklace was the perfect topper, and just like the outfit above while it was quick to pull together it helped me feel a little more dressed up. I don't always wear proper clothes when I'm working from home, there's a lot of loungewear or pyjama days in isolation, as I mentioned above it's hard to justify a nice outfit when the kids will mess it up before the end of the day. But it's a good change to wear proper clothes when the in laws come to visit or when I know I have a few meetings!


Last worn: grey leopard print tee, blue and gold beaded necklace, ochre maxi skirt, Havaianas (above).

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A leopard print tee is a fun twist on a basic tee. You can keep your outfit simple and let the tee be the star by picking a block coloured maxi skirt. Denim works equally well too!

30 Ways To Wear: Navy Floral Kimono #30wears

After Monday's Ways To Wear post, I'm sharing another one as part of the monthly 30 wears series.

Each month I look through my blog archives of daily outfit pics (I have over 8 years worth!) and share with you something that's reached 30 or more wears, to give you some outfit ideas and inspiration for how you can wear something similar in your wardrobe. I started doing this monthly challenge after seeing The True Cost documentary which I highly recommend watching if you haven't already!

This month, it's this beautiful Cotton On navy floral cocoon kimono!


30 Ways To Wear: Navy Floral Kimono


30 ways to wear a navy floral kimono #30wears challenge | away from the blue blog


I've been wearing this kimono on frequent repeat recently as it was so close to 30 wears and I wanted to get it there before the cooler autumn weather set in in Brisbane. Even with isolating at home since March, I managed to hit my goal. I do wear this kimono a little in the cooler weather anyway as it's really like a giant blanket, which has made it perfect for these isolation / working from home in isolation days!

Cost Per Wear

Just like the last navy kimono I hit 30 wears with, this was another pregnancy purchase back in January 2016. It's just a floral print instead of the geometric print of my other kimono, and a cocoon style. It was originally $39.95 at Cotton On, reduced to $3 on sale at the outlet. I couldn't say no to that! At 30 wears that brings the cost per wear down to 10 cents a wear, which I'm really happy with. It's definitely been a valuable addition to my wardrobe.



Navy Floral Kimono With Yellow Tops


5 ways to wear a navy floral kimono with yellow tops denim outfits | awayfromblue

I really like blue and yellow together, and as you can see from the mix of yellow tops here this navy kimono works so well with any shade of yellow, from pastel to mustard!


Navy Floral Kimono With Black


3 navy and black outfit ideas with a navy floral kimono | away from the blue

Black and navy are another colour combination I like to wear. The neutral colours look lovely together, as you can see by how this kimono works well with the different amounts of black, like a maxi dress, tank or skinny jeans.


Navy Floral Kimono With Pink and Purple

Pink and purple are other colours that go so well with navy. I like wearing pink with this kimono as it matches the pink in the floral print, even if it's something as small as adding a pink bag to my outfit. With purple, just like with pink, any shade seems to work really well with this kimono - as you can see with the darker purple jeans, the brighter purple bag, and the lilac tee.


Floral Kimono With Prints

I've tried print mixing with this floral kimono a few times, with mixed results! While none of these outfits are ones I'd repeat again, I do think stripes and florals are always a fun mix, and maybe I just haven't found the perfect stripe to pair with this kimono yet!


Navy Floral Kimono With Green


5 ways to wear a navy kimono floral print with green | away from blue

This is a colour combination I wasn't too sure about a few year ago, it's only recently I've been trying navy and green together. In fact some of these outfits were my first few attempts at the navy and green combination! Olive green or a true bright forest green both work equally well with this navy kimono.


Navy Floral Kimono With Grey


4 outfit ideas floral navy kimono with grey tee | awayfromblue

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple for me and something I wear frequently. I've perviously shared 30 ways to wear a grey tee, and a kimono is a frequent go-to topper for me over a grey tee to stop an outfit looking too plain. This kimono certainly adds a lot of print and colour to a basic grey tee!


Navy Floral Kimono With A Baby Bump


maternity outfits with a navy floral kimono away from the blue blog

This kimono was an early third trimester pregnancy purchase and I enjoyed wearing it in that final trimester! I had a third trimester capsule wardrobe I stuck to in my last pregnancy and I found kimonos like this one really helped change up my outfits a little so it didn't feel like I was wearing the same thing over and over. A kimono is a fun topper over a basic maternity tank, and it always fits no matter how big the bump gets!

22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee: Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing a bright and colourful outfit I wore to work from home, and sadly the last wearing of this grey tee, so I'm looking back at the 22 wears I managed to get from it!

What I wore:

work from home colourful style with magenta skinny jeans grey tee and floral navy kimono | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy floral cocoon blanket kimono with grey tee magenta skinny jeans
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Tee: Atmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
PantsSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate Jeans in magenta
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I adore this tee - so much so that I bought it in three colours! I have a burgundy one, this grey one and a black one. The black one has already left my wardrobe, I was hoping to get this grey tee to 30 wears but this last wear just confirmed to me it's stretched out just like the other black tee, sadly!

The super soft and stretchy fabric has elastane in it, which while making it very soft also doesn't survive a lot of heavy duty washes (and during breastfeeding a while ago I had to wash everything at 60℃, breastfeeding mums will know the pain!). This tee was frequently worn then but seemed to be coping much better than the black one and keeping its shape well. Until I realised I was constantly tugging and pulling at it all day, even though I wasn't doing anything too adventurous and just working from home. I'm sad it's left my wardrobe after just 22 wears, but it did last longer than the black version and it was my own fault not caring for it properly!

Issues with the tee aside, I really liked this outfit! In the cooler morning and with a video call booked in for work, I swapped my usual stay at home loungewear for this slouchy tee and the colourful but cosy floral kimono. I love how the navy with the pink flowers went with the magenta skinny jeans!


Last worn: floral kimono, beaded necklace, grey tee, Havaianas, Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans.

22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee


Much like the time I showed you 30 ways to wear a (different) grey tee, I wear this a lot with denim! I was hoping to hit 30 wears with this tee but it was just too annoying to wear - I like comfortable clothes, I don't like to be pulling or fussing with what I wear! I also don't like worrying about the neckline creeping down when I'm on a work call!

I got it on sale for $17.46 from The Iconic, back in 2014 when I could never resist an Atmos & Here sale at The Iconic! It's definitely my most worn of the three colours I have this tee in, even though it didn't hit my goal of getting worn 30 times. It works out to 79 cents a wear, which isn't too bad, but I really wish I'd got more wears from it!

Here are some of the ways I styled it over the years:


Grey Tee and Blue Denim

5 ways to wear a grey tee and blue denim | awayfromtheblue

The most classic outfit you can ever have - a grey tee and blue denim. Shorts jeans, a grey tee works in all seasons. And you can always add a necklace, bag or kimono (or all three!) for a little extra colour.


Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfit

3 grey tee monochrome outfit ideas | away from blue

Such a simple way to wear a grey tee - just add something black like a skirt or jeans, and you have an easy monochrome outfit. Adding a bright necklace or bag is a good way to introduce a colour pop if you don't want to stick to just black and white.



Grey Tee and Colourful Pants

5 ways to wear a grey tee and colourful pants | awayfromtheblue

Of course it's not just blue jeans a grey tee works with! I liked wearing this grey tee with my more colourful jeans and pants, the neutral goes with any colour.


Grey Tee and Print Mixing

3 print mixing outfit ideas with a grey tee | away from blue
Taking advantage of this neutral grey tee as the base of an outfit, it lets me add in brightly coloured scarves and even a little bit of print mixing! From the subtle striped cardigan and leopard scarf, or the bolder chevron jeans and magenta skull scarf, the grey tee is a great backdrop for a mix of prints.



Grey Tee and Maxis

grey tees and maxi skirt 6 mum style outfit ideas | away from the blue

A grey tee is as much of a staple in my wardrobe as maxi skirts. It's an easy outfit for a warmer day, this grey tee goes with any colour or print of skirt. I've even layered it over a blue maxi dress before too, as you can see at the bottom there.
