Skinny Jeans, Printed Tanks And Cardigans

Making the most of the warmer winter weather just before spring arrived, I got some of my printed tanks out when all I needed to add was a light cardigan. Wore some colourful jeans with them too.

What I wore:

green skinny jeans, grey cardigan and yellow and navy aztec print tank with silver mini mac bag and accessories | awayfromblue

green skinny jeans with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | away from the blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wanted to wear light and colourful layers as it was such a warm day, so this 3/4 sleeve cardigan and a printed tank were perfect. Surprisingly it's the first time I've worn this mustard tank with the green skinny jeans! I really like wearing yellow with these green jeans so I was surprised to look back on the blog and see I hadn't paired the two together before.

I was a little disappointed to see I hadn't worn this tank in over a year and a half too - it really needs to be worn more often, it's a comfortable swing style and goes with so much - last time I wore it with purple.

With the printed tank and bright green jeans I kept the accessories simple with the matching silver mini MAC bag and silver circle necklace. Just wish it had been a little warmer at the end of the day! This outfit was perfect for the school run in the morning and afternoon but I had to layer up with a thicker coat for my son's sports in the evening when it got really cold.





What I wore:

purple cardigan striped tank skull print scarf and magenta skinny jeans outfit with mini mac bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag with magenta skinny jeans  | away from the blue



Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue (and Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag)

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun day! Spent the day with my sister taking her around our fave trail, enjoying the sunshine and the trees sheltering us from the worst of the wind. It was so nice to get out and treat ourselves to a takeaway lunch afterwards.

Added this light scarf to try combat the wind a little. This neon pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is frequently worn with stripes, I really like the combination and despite it being a different shade of pink with the magenta skinny jeans I think they worked well together. Surprisingly I haven't worn this scarf at all this winter! I have been living in loungewear since we go out so little though, hubby and I share the school runs so I don't go out every day.

Keeping up with all the colour I added my purple cardigan and blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. I did say I'd be wearing this cardigan and these jeans together again last time I wore them - the purple is such a nice shade with the magenta!

As you can see I swapped to my Rebecca Minkoff Julian bag to carry all the water bottles and some snacks on our little hike, but I wore the mini MAC bag for the school run and a quick Kmart shop in the afternoon.


Last worn: purple cardigan, pink and cream skull scarf, black and white stripe tank, magenta skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, Rebecca Minkoff Julian.



How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a great combination with a pair of colourful jeans. You can add a light cardigan or scarf if it's a little cooler. Either stick with neutrals to balance out a colourful tank and jeans combo like I have in the first outfit with the grey cardigan, or layer up even more colour like I have in the second outfit with the pink scarf and purple cardigan.

Yellow and Turquoise With Neutral Skinny Jeans Outfits

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two outfits with similar colour schemes of mustard yellow and turquoise, but two very different resulting outfits. One I needed to layer a little more than the other, as winter draws to an end here in Queensland and we get a mix of warmer and cooler days before spring official starts in September.

What I wore:

turquoise and mustard yellow tee skinny jeans and floral duster kimono outfit | away from the blue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India turquoise moto bag | away from blue





Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India
 

Why I wore it:

With the suddenly warmer weather I wanted to get one of my kimonos out again! This duster one is great as it has longer sleeves that I appreciated doing the school drop off in the morning when it was a bit cooler. It was really warm in the afternoon though and I was glad it's not too thick a fabric!

I've worn it with yellow before, but it's the first time I've paired this mustard tee with it and I really liked the combination. The turquoise Balenciaga first bag is something I've accessorised this kimono with before though, such a fun way to wear even more colour to the already colourful print.

These Nobody Denim skinny jeans are a firm favourite as they go with everything and with the comfortable stretch in them they were perfect for a day of working from home with the school run and an afternoon specialists appointment.






What I wore:

mustard cardigan with monochrome grey skinny jeans and tee outfit, converse, skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

mustard cardigan with turquoise Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | away from the blue

ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

This was a busy day, with an early appointment for my youngest right after school drop off. I had to drive into the city for it and although I know some work places are back it was still busier than I expected on the drive in.

As it was a bit of a chilly morning I took advantage of needing to layer by adding some colourful pieces to an otherwise monochrome outfit. It's the first time I've worn this grey tee and the grey skinny jeans together but they were a great outfit base for the teal and turquoise Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the mustard cardigan. I liked how the turquoise skulls matched the Balenciaga first bag too.


Last wornmustard cardigan, teal skull scarf, grey v neck tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Balenciaga turquoise first bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and blue look great together, and turquoise and mustard are a nice example of that. With a bold colour combo you can keep the rest of your outfit neutral like I did in the second outfit with the monochrome grey, or add even more colour with a bright printed piece like the kimono in the first outfit.

Navy Scarf, Neverfull and Colourful Skinny Jeans: Weekday Wear Link Up

Two identical outfit formulas for today's Weekday Wear Link Up, but outfits for two very different days! Both a winter staple formula of skinny jeans, blue scarves, v-neck tees and cardigans. Accessorised with my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

What I wore:

King Island walk outfit sass and bide skinny jeans white tee cardigan bird print scarf and Louis vuitton neverfull | away from blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Scarf: navy bird print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very fun day at Wellington Point! We were lucky to get there when the tide was out so we could go for a walk out to King Island after lunch. When the tide is out, a sand bridge appears all the way from Wellington Point right onto the island. It's the first time we've been able to walk out there with both boys since my my now 4 old was a baby. The tide has not been in our favour before. The kids enjoyed exploring the island although I did regret the walk the next day - while it's a short walk at a couple of k's there and back, walking on sand is a bit rough on my injured knee, even though I took my shoes off to do it.

I wasn't sure what the weather would be like as last time we were there it was cold and windy - so I picked a light cardigan, my navy scarf and a fun pair of magenta skinny jeans. I really like these magenta jeans with blue and the grey cardigan was a good neutral. I thought the white birds in the print matched the white v-neck tee well too! I didn't end up taking this cardigan off - it was a warm day but the sea breeze meant I kept my arms covered. Although it was busy on the beach it was nice everyone kept their distance!






What I wore:

layred winter burgundy jeans and tee outfit neverfull heart print scarf waterfall cardigan | awayfromblue

navy scarf and cardigan with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A bit of a darker outfit for this cooler day! With the wet weather we headed to our local shopping centre for a bit of a browse and to pick up a few groceries. This was before the recent COVID cases in Brisbane, we are back to shopping online 99% of the time now! But it was good to get some presents for an upcoming birthday party, and treat ourselves to some new books (the kids got some Disney ones) and a Boost juice. They had a colour burst promo on so I decided to try the blue smoothie - not only was it delicious it is the first time I'd have a blue smoothie and I had to get a pic as it matched the blues in my outfit so well!

The Stella McCartney heart print scarf was a bit of matchy-matchy too, with the black in the print matching the black v-neck tee. I liked the navy cardigan with the scarf too, even though they are different shades of blue I think it worked well. The burgundy jeans added a little extra colour and the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag carried all of our water bottles and some snacks for the boys, as well as all of my essentials, so I didn't need to carry the baby bag as well.



How You Can Wear It:

Navy scarves go with so much! For something a little different you can try wearing them with colourful jeans instead of the classic blue denim. It's a good way to add more colour to a classic jeans, tee and cardigan outfit in winter.

Leather Jackets, Skinny Jeans and Colourful Scarves

I haven't worn my leather jackets much this winter. It usually warms up a bit during the day in Brisbane so they have felt a little too heavy, but two colder days in July had me reaching for my leather jackets for the early mornings.

What I wore:

cobalt leahter jacket with grey knit pink colourful scarf and magenta ssass & bide skinny jeans winter SAHM outfit | away from the blue

magenta sass and bide jeans with Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from blue


awayfromtheblue Instagram | cobalt leather jacket pink diamond scarf magenta jeans grey knit winter mum style

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl pretty pink diamond scarf
Jumper: Jeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very colourful outfit! I really liked the combination of a jumper, these magenta skinny jeans and a pink printed scarf last time I wore it. This time around I picked my grey polka dot knit and this multi coloured diamond print scarf. Even if the pink didn't match the magenta of the jeans exactly I really liked this combination! Especially with this bright cobalt leather jacket for an extra bit of warmth on a very cold and windy day. As well as working from home I had some tradies over coming in and out of the house all day, and Cooper had a bath at the groomers. A very busy day!





What I wore:

burgundy and cobalt knit and skinny jeans with leather jacket and scarf converse winter school run outfit | away from blue

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs scarf in Island pine-print
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

We were running a little late this morning and I think that's why my scarf looks like it was thrown on in a hurry - it was 😂 I thought the blue and red in the scarf went nicely with the cobalt knit and burgundy jeans. The black leather jacket didn't stay on long though, by the afternoon both it and the scarf had come off as it was so warm at school pickup time a jumper and jeans were all that were needed. 

The scarf came off pretty quickly in the morning as after school drop off we went to grab some more milk and run a couple of errands. It was cold enough to want the scarf on, but my youngest son who had decided not to wear a jumper was cold and I figured it would be better giving him my scarf than letting him drag my leather jacket on the ground! He did look very cute in it!



How You Can Wear it:

Jeans and a leather jacket is a classic winter outfit combination. You can add a little extra colour with some bright skinny jeans or a colourful scarf, or both!

The Magnificent 8: Hello Yellow!

For something different, sharing a Wednesday post again. I am not yet returning to the 3 posts a week I did before Coronavirus hit, this is a special post as I've joined the Magnificent Eight! The theme today is "Hello Yellow", one I had a lot of fun with as I have quite a few yellow pieces in my wardrobe now! 

So I'm sharing two outfits, one I wore on the weekend and the other during the week for the school run. Because even though it's a blog collaboration it wouldn't be my blog if I wasn't showing you what I actually wore, would it! Scroll down to see them and find out more about the Magnificent 8 ladies!


What I wore:

mustard yellow cardigan with black nobody denim skinny jeans converse navy bag mixed print tank | awayfromblue

mustard cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | hellow yellow mustard cardi mixed print tank black nobody denim skinny jeans navy micro bedford bag

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I had this cardigan in mind for the Hello Yellow theme and was wondering what top to wear with it, as it was so warm I decided on a tank. This tank was also thrifted, just like the cardi, and the yellow in the mixed print works so well with the mustard cardigan! It was an extremely warm day so a scarf wasn't needed, I even rolled up the sleeves of my cardigan for a bit!

Kept the rest of my outfit neutral with the Converse and my black Nobody Denim skinny jeans, and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag

Simple but colourful for a warm winter day in the playground. Even though we hadn't had any COVID cases in our state for 8 days at the time I was still a little unsure about taking the kids to a playground for the first time since Iso! I seemed to be the only one worried, the playground was so busy! The kids had a blast playing there even though they had to wait their turn a few times. We used to visit playgrounds regularly before everything happened, so it was nice to get back to it, and easier on my injured knee than the exploring around local trails and empty parks that we have been doing instead the past few months.






What I wore:

yellow tee with green skinny jeans navy cardigan and accessories scarf and bedford bag | away from the blue

green and blue outfit with navy Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | awayfromblueRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl navy Geo print tassel scarf (c/o)
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This outfit was pulled together from other outfits I've worn before! It's not the first time I've worn the scarf and cardigan together, and I really liked this yellow tee last time I wore it with olive green jeans so I wanted to try it with these green jeans as well. I added the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag as it matches so nicely with the navy scarf and cardigan, and again was a nice neutral with the bright top and jeans.

Was a quiet day - doing the school run and taking the little one out to hunt for more books at the opshops. With it being No Buy July I wasn't going to browse for clothes but thought we could go have a look for some books. The kids always like picking up a book or two whenever we stop at an opshop. And with getting back into reading over Iso after my neighbour started up a virtual book club, I wanted to have a browse of the books for myself as well! Was a fun way to spend a small part of the morning after school drop off.



How You Can Wear It:

Yellow is such a cheerful colour to wear - and it pairs well with other brights too! Try it with green, blue, navy, or keep it simple and stick with neutral black skinny jeans.

Maxi Skirts and Knits: Weekday Wear Link Up!

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing two winter maxi skirt outfits for two very different days! A bright and colourful one for a day outside enjoying the winter sun and a neutral one for working from home.

What I wore:

navy and orange outfit denim jacket cobalt knit ochre maxi skirt winter mum style | away from blue

rust maxi skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | denim jacket cobalt knit orange ochre maxi skirt park mum style outfit winter

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

The knit jumper and the denim jacket together may have been a little bit overkill on a warm winter day, but it was very windy! I felt nice and cosy all layered up, and although I thought I wouldn't need a scarf I did miss it when we were in the shade and the wind picked up! Definitely didn't need any more layers on the sun though, it was quite strong and warm sunshine.

I really liked the colour combo of the cobalt knit with the ochre maxi skirt, I need to wear this again! I thought the pale blue denim biker jacket and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag were great additions to the bright colours.

This maxi skirt is quite light in the wind but it's also pretty voluminous and so never flew up too much thank goodness!


30 Ways To Wear A Navy Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan






What I wore:

neutral grey embellished knit jumper with black maxi skirt denim jacket micro bedford bag | awayfromblue

black maxi skirt with navy bag Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | embellished grey knit black maxi skirt denim jacket navy micro bedford bag

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I ended up taking this denim jacket off when it warmed up! This pretty embellished knit is one I tend to very sparingly wear as it is so pretty it feels a bit too special for everyday wear, but it was overdue a wear so I got it out again! Paired it simply with the black thrifted maxi skirt and my classic dark blue denim jacket, and again the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This was such a comfortable outfit for running around a lot and also working from home most of the day.

Did the school drop off in the morning and wished I'd added a scarf, but by school pickup time I'd taken off the denim jacket as it was too warm! Took my son to his first in-person specialist appointment since iso! While restrictions had been lifted a few weeks before, some sniffles kept us away from the office and continuing to do our fortnightly session via telehealth. It was so good to be able to go into the office again! Face to face is much more entertaining for a 4 year old than a zoom call, although I'm glad we had those sessions to fall back on over Iso. The benefits of technology!

Striped Tees and Skull Scarves With Green Jeans

Two outfits with very similar formulas that look really different. Green skinny jeans, striped tees, skull scarves and cardigans for spending time outside with the boys.

What I wore:

navy stripe tee green skinny jeans cardigan skull scarf and nylon backpack walking trail outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue | awayfromtheblue

bush trail walking outfit green skinny jens cardigan skull scarf nylon backpack baby bag | awayfromblue Instagram

Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
Tee: Jeanswest striped split hem tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Making the most of the nice weather during the school holidays, and also partly because hubby was still working from home and needed some quiet, I took the kids out to our fave walking trail. Picked because it's a really short and easy walk through the bush with beautiful views. It's under a kilometre too so I knew my injured knee could cope it it. Still wore my daggy but supportive running shoes anyway and I'm glad I did as we went off the trail a lot! We were out for hours finding "new" paths through the bush as the kids explored and I let them pick where we went. (Just a note that I know the track well, I always knew where we were and there are enough pointers around the landscape that a short walk in any direction would reorient you if you did get lost. A lot of the different paths we took were the old trail or accessing the trail from other directions so weren't just rushing off blindly. Be careful not to deviate from the trail unless you can do so safely.) My knee certainly started complaining that evening from all the extra walking!

I added the blue and teal skull scarf for a touch of colour with the navy stripe tee and the green skinny jeans. The scarf did come off quite quickly though as the day warmed up, I even considered taking the cardigan off a few times too. Keeping to the practical outfit I didn't take a bag of my own and just put my things and our water bottles and snacks in the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack I use as a baby bag. Was a really fun morning out!






What I wore:

neutral playdate outfit olive skinny jeans stripe tee skull scarf navy cardigan grey bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey worn in crook of arm  | away from the blue


Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf
TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (get it second hand)

Why I wore it:

This was another fun day outside! After a quick stop at the Saturday sale at the opshop we headed out to a local park with the boys, until they got hungry for lunch. I used my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB instead of the baby bag as hubby was with us and could carry a backpack.

After the morning at the park, we spent the afternoon at yet another park for a playdate. Which didn't quite go according to plan...but luckily there was an entrepreneurial lady selling ice cream and taking advantage of the weekend crowds so we grabbed some ice cream and sat down on the beach enjoying the last of the sun's rays. As the kids got muddier and muddier running into the water 😂 Baths, a movie and an early dinner made it the perfect end to a hectic day.

I like this navy cardigan with the olive skinny jeans, especially as it matches the navy stripe tee.  I felt the outfit needed another layer as it was quite a windy day, this neutral taupe Alexander McQueen skull scarf was the perfect finishing touch. My knee was really sore by the end of the day though, Converse not as supportive for all the running around!


How You Can Wear It:


A skull scarf is a fun print mix with a stripe tee and jeans combo. You can go brighter like the first outfit with the blue and bold green skinny jeans, or stick with neutrals like the taupe, olive and navy second outfit.
