3 Ways To Wear Band Tees: #sparklePunchMusicMonth

A bit of a bumper post today, sharing 3 outfits in one! The wonderful Jess decided to do #SparklePunchMusicMonth on Instagram in August and invited people to join in. I couldn't turn down the chance to get some of my band tees out and reminisce about my favourite concerts and memories!

I ended up wearing three different band tees through the month, which resulted in three different ways to wear band tees I wanted to show you. Because everyone loves a good graphic tee!

What I wore:

monochrome black outfit with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome black skinny jeans band tee outfit silver bag
JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan
Tee: Kisschasy The Final Roar band tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This band tee was one I bought at the final Kisschasy show before the band called it quits. It was a wonderful finale, even if I spent the time up the back away from the crowd as I was pregnant at the time!

A classic black and white tee with a fun print, this is a permanent fixture in my wardrobe, even if I don't wear it much. It was good to get it out again! I decided to copy the colour scheme from the tee in my outfit, sticking to black and white with the black belted cardigan, Nobody Denim skinny jeans and black and white Converse. The metallic mini MAC bag worked so nice with the monochrome.

Simple monochrome outfit for a quiet Monday with a library and playground visit.


Last worn: belted cardigan, band tee, skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Tee: Kisschasy blue tape band tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another Kisschasy band tee, but a much more colourful outfit this time! Wore this for a warmer winter day at the playground with the boys. This Kisschasy tee hasn't been worn on the blog before, it was one of the ones in my "band tee storage box" and from one of their earlier concerts that my sister and I went to. In fact I think this tee may have been my sisters at one point?

I loved wearing it though, and I thought the blue tape print (that spells out Kisschasy) worked well with the red maxi skirt. Again I stuck with converse, comfortable shoes for running around the playground. The denim jacket I actually took off while being in the sun, it was a really warm winter day, almost summer-like! Sideways Instagram outfit pic courtesy of my 5 year old who thought that it was so funny to take the photos on an angle and we all had a good giggle!

Again I wore a Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, this time this adorable little aquamarine one that goes so well with the red skirt and blue tee and jacket.


Last worn: denim jacket, red maxi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC. It's the first time I've worn the Kisschasy band tee on the blog.

JacketJeanswest Alice longline Australian wool cardigan
Tee: The Getaway Plan yellow paint splatter band tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Finally a band tee from a different band, haha! There's something so fun about the Kisschasy tees, and I went to a lot of their shows so I have quite a collection of them!

This yellow band tee is another one from the "band tee storage box" that I've added to my regular wardrobe now after this challenge. I love this tee so much. I actually got to meet Matt from The Getaway Plan while wearing it and I shared a bit of that embarrassingly flustered encounter on Instagram. One of my fave pics still though!

Yellow and purple isn't a colour combo I'd normally go for but it works so well with this print that I had to match the colour in the tee with the purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag. With the bold yellow tee and purple bag I kept the rest of my outfit simple and neutral with my grey maxi cardigan, skinny jeans and silver ballet flats.

Comfy, cosy and colourful outfit for a public holiday day off - we headed to Ikea for brunch and got a few more things for the house.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, yellow band tee, grey skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Graphic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

#sparklepunchMusicMonth challenge was a great reason to get my band tees out again, and it shows you how easy it is to wear a classic band tee - no matter the colours! Keeping things simple and wearing a graphic tee with jeans is an easy outfit option, and perfect for mum life. You can go simple and monochrome like the first outfit or be more colourful and bring out the colours in the print with your accessories like I have in the final outfit. You can also mix thing sup a little and pair a band tee with a maxi skirt like the second outfit.

Adding Colour To Neutral Knits With Skinny Jeans & Balenciaga Bags

The simple outfit formulas are ones I keep coming back to! Cosy neutral knits, skinny jeans and Balenciaga bags with a touch of colour make an easy outfit for a mum. While I wore these back in winter last month they would work on a cold spring day too!

What I wore:

ombre knit with green skinny jeans black balenciaga part time bag SAHM style winter | awayfromblue

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | awayfromtheblue

JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

A busy but fun filled day! Had to take my son to an appointment before Kindy and then drop him off at Kindy a little later. It was a stressful morning trying to fit everything in but I had the whole afternoon to myself before Kindy pickup. I headed to the opshop to drop off three boxes of things we no longer wanted, and had a little browse of the clothes as they had a fill a bag for $5 sale on.

I certainly made the most of being kid free, trying on a basket and arm full of clothes and filling up a bag for the boys and a bag for myself - 19 pieces all together! Not bad for $10! Made some time to film some videos before going to pickup the kids too.

I like wearing this ombre knit with my colourful denim collection, I think the neutral colours work well with brights and it's the first time I've worn these green jeans and knit together. I really liked the combination.

I added the black Balenciaga part time bag as it fit everything I needed for the appointment, but I did wonder if I should have worn black ballet flats instead of these tan ones with the black bag. Still liked my outfit though!


Last worn: ombre knit, coin pendant necklace, green skinny jeans, camel flats, Balenciaga black part time bag.

Other ways to wearombre knit with leopard print, green skinny jeans with navy, camel flats and wrap dress, Balenciaga black part time bag worn 30 ways.

BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Wearing a similar outfit again, cosy knit and skinny jeans but this time I stuck with a classic black pair of jeans and added the colour through my accessories. This pink Fashion Scarf Girl crinkle scarf, while a different shade from the Balenciaga city bag, makes such a nice combination worn together. I've worn the scarf and bag together before here too!

This was a nice simple and colourful outfit for church. I like how the foil polkas dots on the grey knit are subtle enough that I can wear it with anything!


Last worn: grey polka dot knit, pink crinkle scarf, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Similar Neutral Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

On a colder day, a cosy knit is a staple with skinny jeans! You can try changing up your outfit a little by adding some colour to a neutral knit  - by swapping classic blue jeans for a brighter pair, or adding some colourful accessories like a scarf or bag.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Matching Handbags and Necklaces with Printed Shirts and Colourful Pants For The Office

For roday's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two simple yet colourful outfits I wore to the office. Keeping the accessories as colourful as my pants, I matched my handbags to my bright beaded statement necklaces. I've previously shared about matching bags to shoes, scarves and printed tees before, this time I'm wearing matching accessories together.

What I wore:

olive skinny jeans and mixed print shirt business causal outfit matching shoes and necklace emerald green | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
ShirtJeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In case you missed me sharing the news on Instagram, this fluffy and very curious dog is our temporary foster family member while we dogsit. She loves coming up to me while I'm taking photos and trying to figure out what I'm doing, it can make taking photos a little tricky!

I was eager to wear my new Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag after I bought it on eBay, and I knew this green statement necklace would be the perfect match with it. I've worn it with olive jeans before so knew I'd like this combination, and this printed shirt is an easy simple piece to make my jeans a little more dressed up for the office. But when your boss wears jeans you don't really need to try too hard to dress up denim!


Last worn: mixed print shirt, green statement necklace, olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats. It's the first time I've worn the bag on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmixed print shirt and shorts, olive skinny jeans for long haul flight, gold mouse flats and wrap dress.

Perfect for pregnancymixed print shirt in first trimester, gold mouse flats in third trimester.


My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:







What I wore:

pinstripe shirt with burgundy pants and red accessories matching necklace and bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue
Necklace: thrifted red flat bead necklace
Shirt: Target mint stripe shirt
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I've worn this mint striped shirt with the burgundy pants before and really liked the combination, so I thought I'd wear it again. A classic button up shirt is great for the office, and this one is a comfortable linen. It does however start to look quickly crumpled through the day, and was more noticeable as I left the sleeves down this time instead of rolling them up.

The red and burgundy combo was a new one for me to try - this thrifted necklace pairs so nicely with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and I thought they would be a fun combo together with the pants.

Didn't like this as much as last time I wore this shirt and pants together though, I think since I was trying the red and burgundy I should have went with a more neutral shirt. Very comfortable outfit for a busy day at work though!


Last worn: mint striped shirt, red statement necklace, burgundy pants, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

Other ways to wearmint striped shirt and pencil skirt, burgundy pants and embroidered blouse, camel ballet flats and sheath dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancymint striped shirt in second trimester, burgundy pants in first trimester, camel ballet flats in third trimester.



Printed Shirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic printed shirt works well in the office to bring a little interest to corporate separates. For something a little more fun, you can try pairing a printed shirt with colourful pants, or sneaking a pair of jeans into your outfit like I have with the first one if you work in a less formal environment.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Grey Knits With Extra Details, Pencil Skirts and Chloe Paddington Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing some more office wear, easy outfits for winter. Just a grey knit (with a little extra detail), a black pencil skirt, bright scarf and my forever classic Chloe Paddington bag.

What I wore:

winter colourful yellow scarf grey embellished knit jumper and pencil skirt outfit | away from blue

yellow scarf and Chloe Paddington in 2007 Brun | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | winter office outfit bold yellow scarf grey embellished knit pencil skirt chloe paddington bag
ScarfLove Quotes knotted tassel linen scarf in sunshine yellow
KnitWarehouse grey bead front jumper
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

A slightly warmer winter morning after a rather cold snap meant I pulled out my cheeriest scarf! This big yellow blanket scarf is one I sometimes think is too big for my petite frame. I've even considered chopping it in half before! But I can't deny that whenever I wear it it makes me smile, it's so bold and colourful. Was the perfect touch of colour with my otherwise neutral outfit.

The embellished grey knit is a wardrobe oldie too, it's so good with a pencil skirt to the office. I tend not to wear it on days at home with the boys much as I'm worried the little beads would soon fall off after a lot of tugging from a curious toddler....much more suited to time in the office with grown ups!

Felt like taking my Chloe Paddington out for another spin. It's a much treasured piece in my wardrobe, my first ever luxury handbag purchase, and despite it being the heaviest bag I own I just can't part with it. Chloe have even reinterpreted the padlock design recently, but nothing beats the original!


Last worn: yellow scarf, embellished knit, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Chloe Paddington bag.

Scarf: blue tartan scarf
JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

Another cosy and comfortable grey knit with a black pencil skirt for the office - if something works, why not repeat it! This time around the casual grey knit has a little extra detail in the form of foil polka dots! I do wear this knit on my stay at home mum days, but it also works well in the office.

I thought this blue tartan scarf would be a fun burst of colour with the black and grey, and while the jumper does have polka dots on it I thought it was subtle enough to be able to wear the tartan print with it. Again, I took my Chloe Paddington bag. I promptly put it back in its dustbag on its storage shelf when I got home though - I can only carry a bag this heavy so many times! And to think, before kids, at the height of the Paddington craze, I used to wear one (of 5 different ones I had!!) almost every day! 😅


Last worn: polka dot knit, blue tartan scarf, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Chloe Paddington bag (above).

Other ways to wearpolka dot knit and maxi skirt, blue tartan scarf and jeans, black pencil skirt and pink tee, silver ballet flats in summer, Chloe Paddington and jeans.

Grey Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey knit is a wardrobe staple, and picking one with a little extra detail like a foil print or added embellishment makes your outfit feel a little more special. A bold accessory like a scarf can add an extra touch of colour and warmth to your outfit.

Colourful Knits and Printed Jeans With Converse & Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two colourful knits and printed skinny jeans outfits, with some very different thoughts on each outfit! While both outfits features pieces I love but rarely wear, I'll be putting one piece back into storage for the time being!

What I wore:

cobalt knit and pink neon leopard print jeans with converse and purple bag mum style | awayfromblue

pink leopard print jeans with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | colourful winter mum style pink leopard print jeans cobalt knit purple plum rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Pants: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I really like wearing these pink leopard print pants with blue, so on a colder winter day I thought this blue knit would be a great piece to wear with them. I'm surprised I haven't worn the combination before actually! It was a nice outfit for a warmer winter day - although it was a bit chilly in the shade, this light cobalt knit was all that was needed in the sun.

I did worry my outfit was maybe a little overdressed for a morning running errands and visiting the playground, as these pants can feel a bit loud, being neon leopard print! But they are so fun to wear and I enjoyed wearing them, they were definitely overdue a wear!

The pink beaded necklace matches the leopard print so nicely, and the white Converse continue on the white in the background of the pants. For something a little less matchy-matchy I picked my Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag to wear. I like purple with both blue and pink, it makes a lovely trio worn all together.


Last worn: cobalt knit, pink beaded necklace, pink leopard print pants, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff plum mini MAB tote.

Handbag Comparison: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote and Micro Avery







What I wore:

Wildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit with sass and bid playman printed skinny jeans converse red bag mum style | away from blue

distressed Wildfox knit with Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | printed jeans with rainbow knit and red rebecca minkoff micro avery bag wildfox distressed sweater
KnitWildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't enjoy wearing this as much! I love the chevron printed jeans with the Converse, that's an outfit I've worn lots before, and the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag was a great pop of colour. It also matched the red on the rainbow knit nicely.

This Wildfox distressed knit is one I got from my friend's wardrobe clearout. It's so soft and special to me as it came from her. However it is a little tricky to wear around toddlers. I've tried it a couple of times over the years, and just like another time I wore it, I've rolled the sleeves up a bit to hide some of the distressing and make it less tempting for toddlers to pull on. But pull on it they did! It's already distressed so it's not like they were making new holes in it, but it's not designed for curious kids to try sticking their arm through the holes 😂

After wrestling them off my jumper I decided to still wear it out anyway for the morning - surely once distracted by the park the boys would give up playing with the cosy jumper. But by lunchtime it turned into one of those freak winter heatwave days and I was melting in my cosy outfit. It was easy for the boys to shed some of the layers I'd put them in that morning, me not so much. Thankfully we made it home without dying of heatstroke!

I promptly resolved to put this knit back in the winter box, to try getting it out again next year when the boys are a little bigger. Hopefully they will like it just as much then as they do now ("I like your jumper Mummy, it makes me smile"), but be a little less grabby with it!


Last worn: Wildfox distressed knit, Sass & Bide printed jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote.

Other ways to wearWildfox distressed knit and maxi skirt, Sass & Bide printed jeans worn two ways, Converse and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote and shorts.

Printed Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans are a winter wardrobe staple, especially when paired with cosy knits. For something different, try a pair of printed denim instead. You can use the print to add more colour to your outfit, like I have in the first outfit, or just add more detail to an outfit like in the second outfit.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with Louis Vuitton neverfull for themepark mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.


Last worn: denim jacket, Mickey mouse tee, chambray maxi skirt, glitter sneakers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt







What I wore:

chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with cobalt leather jacket with red micro avery tote bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | chambray skirt graphic tee and leather jacket winter mum style
JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.

Other ways to wearcobalt leather jacket and printed jeans, Edinburgh graphic tee with olive, chambray maxi skirt in summer, tan ankle boots and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery and red scarf.

Perfect for pregnancycobalt leather jacket in second trimester.



Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.
