30 Ways To Wear: Mothers En Vogue Navy Breastfeeding Tank

This tank is such a wardrobe staple! An extremely useful breastfeeding piece, it has hidden nursing access and is such a super soft bamboo that I wasn't ready to give it away with the rest of my maternity / breastfeeding pieces. I decided to keep it in my wardrobe as a great wardrobe basic, and it's been such a good piece to have. For something that I got when pregnant with my now 5 and a half year old, it's really stood the test of time!


30 Ways To Wear: Navy Breastfeeding Tank




Cost per wear is tricky to calculate for this tank as I didn't actually pay anything for it, it was something I got through a blog partnership back when I was pregnant with my now 5 and a half year old! The retail was around $70 if I remember correctly and I certainly think it's worth the investment. You can get it on sale for cheaper here or the long sleeved version here.

While I have worn it 30 times, only 10 of those wears have been after I stopped breastfeeding. It was a staple breastfeeding tank for me and on frequent repeat back in those days. It really shows that if you invest in the right maternity / breastfeeding pieces, you can get a lot of wear from them in the future too. In fact, both of the Mothers En Vogue pieces I got in pregnancy are the two pieces that have stayed in my post-pregnancy wardrobe. I've shared 30 wears with the pink breastfeeding dress, the other piece I got, before.

When shopping in pregnancy, stick with neutral colours, like this indigo shade, or colours you already have a lot of in your non-maternity wardrobe. I'm going to be still using and loving this tank in the years to come (or whenever I get to get out the house again!). I like the bubble gathered effect and the neutral navy colour goes with everything. I'll show you some outfit pieces and colour combinations you can wear a similar piece with in your wardrobe!


Colour Combinations With A Navy Tank:


Navy Tank In Monochrome Outfits



Blue is my favourite colour so I love a good monochrome outfit, easily done by pairing this navy tank with other navy or blue pieces in my wardrobe. To stop the outfit looking too plain you can try wearing different sades of blue together, or try a printed navy piece with the block colour tank.


Navy Tank With Green


Blue and green is a colour combination I've only been wearing for a few years but I am not sure why I avoided it for so long! With the neutral navy, it looks good with bright emerald greens like the necklace and skirt, or the floral duster kimono, as well as a more muted green with the olive shorts.


Navy Tank With Pink


Blue and pink look great together - and these three outfits showcase that so well with different sades and amounts of pink. With bright magenta jeans, a pink bag or a blush blazer, there is no shade of pink that doesn't look good with navy!


Navy Tank With Purple


Blue and purple is another go-to colour combo for me. Just as you saw in the pink outfit set above, different shades or purple and different amounts of purple work well with this tank. Purple skinny jeans, purple accessories, and a purple cardigan. Even a pink, blue and purple outfit like the last one there with the purple kimono over the tank and the magenta pink bag.


Navy Tank With Red


Red really pops with navy! Again, you can do this in different ways. A red bag is a fun burst of colour with a neutral tank like this, or you can go a little bigger and bolder like the outfit in the middle with the red skirt worn with the navy tank. Even if the skirt does look a little orange in these pics, taken back when Brisbane had a lot of orange haze from the smoke last year.


Navy Tank With Yellow


Yellow is such a cheerful colour to wear, but sometimes it can feel a little overpowering. A nice neutral basic outfit building block like this navy tank works well with yellow. It really lets even a little bit of yellow, like a yellow necklace, really pop.


Outfit Ideas With a Navy tank:


Navy Tank with Denim


It's no surprise that I've worn this top with a lot of denim! Jeans are such a mum staple and you've seen this top worn a lot with denim in this post. These 4 outfits show you how you can mix it up a little with the denim - trying different colours, or a denim jacket instead of jeans. They also show how much I loved that Nibbly Bits necklace when breastfeeding! 😂 I suspect that necklace is part of the reason why my kids love playing with my accessories so much...


Navy Tank with Prints


And the final way you can wear a plain navy tank like this is with something printed! It's such a fail-safe outfit formula, a plain block-colour piece like this top with something bold and printed. Stripes are a firm favourite of mine, but printed jeans or even a tie dye kimono, any print works!

Not all of these are specific maternity or breastfeeding pieces but they will still be staples in your wardrobe!

Two ways To Wear a Navy Tank (With Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford Bag)

For today's weekday wear post I'm sharing two ways I've recently worn this navy tank. A breastfeeding piece I got when pregnant with my eldest boy, it's such a staple it's never left my wardrobe even though my breastfeeding days are behind me!

I'm continuing to blog as much as possible while the world is so uncertain, it's part of my routine and after 8 years of blogging and outfit photo taking it would be weird to stop! However, not going out as often and working from home has meant more loungewear, so I have less outfits to share as I only share pics of what I actually wear out the house.

While I've dropped my Wednesday post I'll still endeavour to post Monday and Fridays. In fact you'll see this navy top again in my 30 ways to wear post this Friday, as it's hit 30 wears!


What I wore:

 Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | awayfromtheblue

JacketJeanswest Delilah Long Line Kimono in Green Floral

Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Wore this to quickly pop out to do the school run and get groceries two weeks ago, which seems so long ago now. While social distancing wasn't as much of a thing then I thought this beautiful green floral duster kimono would help keep my personal space as it can billow out behind me when I walk quickly 😂 It also brought some extra colour to my outfit to cheer me up and boost my mood - grocery shopping has been a bit difficult lately with the shortages around and I needed something to make me smile.

The navy tank and the blue Bermuda denim shorts were another attempt to make me smile - blue is my favourite and go-to colour when I want to feel a little happier!

With the green kimono breaking up the blue a bit I thought this navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag would be a nice compliment to the blue tank and shorts. Normally I'd have more exciting things in mind for the first outings with a new bag, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to wear this bag while I still can! Even if it was just for the school run and grocery shopping.


Last worn: green duster kimono, coin and tassel necklacenavy breastfeeding tank, Bermuda denim shorts, New Balance sneakers. First time I've worn the bag as it is a recent purchase.

Unboxing My Latest Rebecca Minkoff Purchase:




No "what I bought this month" post up as with all the craziness in the world I only have this bag I bought to share, and a fun orange blazer I got preloved. I optimistically bid on it a few weeks before things changed in Australia, when I was still going into work and it eventually arrived on my second week of who knows how many weeks working from home. I'm hopeful it will make an appearance on the blog soon...but it is really an office piece!




What I wore:

Necklace:  House of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I kept this completely monochromatic with navy and blue. I really like the navy Micro Bedford bag with the blue floral skirt, it was such a nice combination. The silver necklace is an older favourite and was a bit of matchy-matchy with the silver hardware on the micro Bedford bag, and silver ballet flats.

Another day of being mostly at home - I did pop out to the grocery store again after school drop off and helping in my son's classroom. It was the second time that week I'd been to the grocery store, hoping that there would be more in stock. Got a few more things from my list thankfully, but there were still a lot of bare shelves even with the newly implemented shopping limits.

Yes, we need shopping limits at all our grocery stores to stop people hoarding and panic buying! A couple in front of me had some of their shopping removed by the cashier because they hadn't stuck to the limits. Thankfully there was no angry outbursts or need for police intervention as I've seen around a lot lately. What a crazy world we live in!

How You Can Wear It

A navy tank is a great wardrobe basic! It's a great base outfit piece for pairing with a bold print - something contrasting in green like the kimono, or a little more monochromatic with a blue floral maxi skirt.

Accessorising Pink and White Shorts And Tee Outfits: Blue Kimonos and Pink Bags

Wearing some easy pink and white shorts and tee outfits with blue kimonos and pink bags. To make it look a little different each time I swapped around the tees and shorts, so it was a white tee and pink shorts one day and a pink tee and white shorts the next week!

What I wore:

blush pink shorts white tee navy kimono Cotton On Alana Wanderlust kimono in floral mood indigo mum outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this back on the last day of summer to go shopping with my mum - she had some things to buy and there was a Leap Day Sale on at Myer so we went out to shop up a storm. Didn't find anything that I had to have for myself but did manage to pick up some Lego sets for the kids birthdays this year - at 30% off I stocked up!

I felt this white tee was overdue a wear and figured a day of shopping was probably an okay time to wear it - I try to pick days where there is less likelihood of me or the kids spilling something on myself! Unfortunately I did have soup for dinner, thankfully the soup stains washed out!

The blush necklace I have been wearing quite a bit lately - it pairs so nicely with the blush pink shorts! The peony pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag was another bit of matchy-matchy. I wasn't sure if it would be too much with this outfit at first but with the blue printed kimono on top I think it separated the pinks nicely and it was a great accessory to wear.


Last worn: blue printed kimono, blush tassel necklace, white v-neck tee, blush pink shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag.

TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Just like the outfit above, it's a pink and white shorts and tee outfit, but this time I wore white Bermuda denim shorts and a pink tee instead to swap the colours up. I thought this navy floral kimono worked really well with the pink tee, and I've not worn the two together before. I have worn the tee and shorts together before though!

I thought a pink bag would work well with this, just like the first outfit above, and I needed a bag big enough to carry mine and my son's water bottles in so I didn't have to carry the baby bag too. This sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag was perfect, even if it is a different shade from the pink on the tee and the pink in the floral print of the kimono, I thought it complimented it well.

Wore this for a busy way with the school drop off and pick up, a doctors appointment (just a repeat script one, nothing serious!), attempting to grocery shop during the toilet paper shortage which is surprisingly still continuing weeks later... and logging in to work for a can't miss meeting. Thankfully we managed to buy everything we needed despite some bare supermarket shelves, and sticking a few episodes of Bluey on kept the kids happy after school while I joined the afternoon meeting! Unfortunately the tassel on my necklace fell off in the morning, but I'm hoping I can repair it (it's not the first time it's broken sadly).

Striped Tanks and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff small Chevron Quilted Love Crossbody Bag

This is basically the autumn version of these outfits! I'm wearing these two striped tanks again, instead of maxi skirts this time I'm pairing them with colourful skinny jeans and a little bright Rebecca Minkoff small chevron quilted Love crossbody bag for a pop of colour.

You'll notice the shoes and bag are the same in both outfits - I wore these a couple days apart when I needed something simple and easy to wear without too much thinking, turns out when you are distracted by other things you end up repeating the basics multiple times!

What I wore:

burgundy skinny jeans with black and white striped tank and rebecca minkoff orange love crossbody bag | awayfromblue

burgundy jeans with orange bag Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | awayfromtheblue

Necklace:  thrifted pearl and heart charm long necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Pants: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I had a rare luxury of a kid-free day off last week! I'd been in a training course most of the week for work which meant changing my work days around to suit the course, leaving me with my normal work day free and child care arrangements already in place. I was in a bit of pain with my knee so decided to change my plans a little and instead of a day at home I headed out for a luxurious relaxation massage. I wasn't sure about being out but figured it might be my last indulgence for a while so I took the opportunity.

I've been going to the physio regularly for my knee since I injured it late last year, but a relaxation massage is a lot gentler than the effective but not always pleasant techniques at the physio! Had a productive afternoon filming some more videos for my YouTube channel afterwards too.

With these burgundy jeans I thought the little peach Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted love bag would be a great choice, and I just needed my wallet, phone and keys as I headed out. I really liked the orange and red together!


Last worn: black striped tank, heart charm necklace, burgundy skinny jeans, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff chevron small love bag.

Other ways to wearblack striped tank and maxi skirt, burgundy skinny jeans with turquoise tank, camel ballet flats and a-line skirt, Rebecca Minkoff chevron small love bag and kimono.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Small Chevron Quilted Love Bag










What I wore:

navy white striped tank with olive skinny jeans autumn mum style | away from blue

olive jeans and orange bag Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | away from the blue


Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Again, sticking with simple things! Another striped tank and pair of colourful jeans! I even wore the same shoes, although I did change the necklace this time. Wanted to be comfortable for the school run and it was a slightly cooler morning so I thought jeans would be a good choice again. The little peach Rebecca Minkoff love bag is something I've worn with these olive jeans before, I really like the green and orange combination! I carried the baby bag too for our water bottles.

Was a bit of a strange day when I wore this - after dropping my eldest off at school the youngest and I went out to the grocery store, we needed some more fruit and bread, nothing big. It was strange seeing some of the empty shelves and then while walking around my phone started blowing up with calls and texts with the news of the first of the office closures as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Which I'd been thinking would have been happening soon.

For the immediate time being, we are going to be putting social distancing in place - so we sat out on all our usual activities over the weekend, I think like many people across Australia. What that means for us this weekend and in the weeks to come I don't know. I also don't know how much I'll be in the office and how much I'll be working from home as it seems to change day to day!


If I'm not going out I'm not getting dressed into something other than lounge wear so I don't know what will happen blog-wise (at the moment I'll still have to do the school run at least) but there are bigger things in the world to focus on. I do have a couple more posts scheduled before I run out of outfit pics. The difficulty of sharing pics of what I actually wear I guess! I'll try keep this blog as light and fashion focused as I can - we all need a break and a bit of frivolity now and then.

Striped Tanks and Thrifted Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

When I bought these maxi skirts last month I knew I wanted to wear them with stripes right away! Although I just shared about them on Wednesday's Monthly purchase post, today I'm showing more details about some of the ways I've worn them. With a plain block colour maxi skirt, a striped tank is a great pairing.

What I wore:

black and white striped tank with ochre tree of life maxi skirt crossbody bag | awayfromblue

Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TopAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really love the colour of this maxi skirt! As you can see it seems to change colour in different lights - it looks pretty similar to the tan bag at first but as you can see in the Insta pic it's a much more yellow tone. I did like the tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag with it though. It was the perfect size for carrying the essentials when we popped into the grocery store after church.

Unfortunately we didn't quite miss the storm was was threatening though and I got a little drenched running to the car! This maxi skirt was not fun to wear when wet! Will need to remember to keep it to rain-free days only.

With the striped tank and the block colour maxi skirt I added just a little print mixing with the tortoiseshell necklace. Simple outfit for a stormy day.


Last worn: striped tank, tortoiseshell necklace, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Why I wore it:

My other recently thrifted maxi skirt, I went a little more matchy-matchy with this one and stuck with a navy stripe tank to match the navy skirt. I even picked a blue beaded necklace to tie in with it too, along with the navy Havaianas!

The tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag was a nice bit of contrast with the navy - I really like the two neutrals together. Great outfit for the school run and a few errands on a hot summer day.

Soft Pull On Shorts and Printed Kimonos With Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Again with two very similar outfit formulas, but different colour schemes! On hot and humid summer days these soft pull on shorts are the best, I'm surprised they haven't been worn as much this summer! It was nice wearing them on these wet but still hot days.

I just wish I could have worn different shoes, but these are the only shoes that make walking and driving bearable with my injured knee!

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I recently wore those olive embroidered shorts with a navy tee, blue tie dye kimono and mustard yellow bag. I liked the colour combination so much I wanted to wear it again. I changed it up a little this time though, having the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel bag instead of the mustard one, and having the yellow kimono instead of a yellow bag. I wore this navy tank instead of the navy tee too, but wore the same turquoise tassel necklace.

Just as I did last time I wore these colours together, I really liked this outfit! It was a hot and humid day but thankfully the rain held off for the school drop off and pick up, and we were able to do all our errands at the closest shopping centre to enjoy the aircon and keep dry!

Why I wore it:

Another oh-so-comfortable and light pair of pull on shorts. These ones are black with a little white square print on them so I thought they would look great with the green duster kimono, with the white in the flower print. I really liked this combination.

Not as colourful as the outfit above, I stuck with a monochrome black outfit with the black tank and printed shorts, and a neutral grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag. I thought that the green floral duster was enough extra interest with the outfit, especially with the print mixing with the shorts.

Again with these New balance shoes which are pretty much a staple here now. Any time I have tried to walk too far without them my injured knee has been in so much pain!

How You Can Wear It:

On a hot and humid day a pair of neutral pull on soft shorts like these olive and black pairs are perfect - no fussing with zips or buttons and incredibly comfortable all day. To mix it up a little you can add a kimono on top for a touch of colour or print mixing.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Pink Tees and Blue Printed Maxi Skirts with Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sharing two similar casual outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, that follow the same basic outfit formula but look very different. I like pink and blue together, so on some stay at home mum days I paired two different pink tees with printed blue maxi skirts and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

I share a lot of workwear looks for the linkup, but I only work part time so aside from the two days I'm in the office during the week I'm pretty casually dressed!

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Decided to get pics of this lovely outfit while we were out by the bayside - unfortunately the tide was out so it's not as pretty as I thought it would turn out, haha! I had one on one time with my son and while we did have to get groceries on the way back home, we spent the morning playing by the sea and having a special morning tea just the two of us. By the time the tide had rolled in, my outfit was covered in cake, apple juice and sand so I wasn't going to try repeat the photos! 😂

This raspberry pink tee works so well with the navy stripe maxi skirt - I feel I haven't given this skirt much attention lately, it's a great basic piece and pairs so well with many colours. This raspberry tee was a Christmas gift from my mum and works well with all of the blue I have in my wardrobe! Matched the navy stripes with the navy and gold necklace and the navy and pink Havaianas. I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was perfect as I didn't take the baby bag. I carried the wipes, hand sanitiser and both our water bottles in it to save having to bring the baby bag along too.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above - pink tee, printed blue maxi skirt, but a lot brighter with the hot pink frill sleeve tee and the bright blue floral maxi skirt. I really liked this outfit - it was a bit of a bold pairing but it made me smile all day! I added the purple crescent necklace for a little extra colour but I'll be honest the pink tee is so bold you barely notice it!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull as I had a busy day ahead, including taking advantage of some rare kid-free time in the afternoon to finally go to the optician and discover that I did need new glasses (I use glasses for working at the computer). Turned into a very expensive day!

How You Can Wear It:

A blue printed maxi skirt looks great worn with a simple basic tee. You don't have to stick to neutrals though! You can pick a soft pink, or even a bold bright pink, for something a little different that's still just as comfortable. Pink and blue are a great combination in any shades!
