Two Ways To Wear Leopard Print Tees: Matching Bags To Your Top

Wearing two very different leopard print tees and matching them to my handbags to create some cute winter outfits with my cosy cardigans and skinny jeans. I've shared other ways to match your bag before, to your shoes and to your scarves. This time, I'm matching to the printed tees.

In further proof that I may take the outfit formula thing too far some days, and keep wearing the same thing over and over, I'm wearing the same necklace in both outfits! I did wear these a couple weeks apart though.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | awayfromtheblue

TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a family movie date. I really love this Sass & Bide neon orange leopard print tee, but it's quite a statement piece and so one I only wear sparingly. Which is silly really, I should wear the things I enjoy more often!

Jeans and a tee was the perfect comfortable outfit for taking the kids to the movies - and the cosy wool maxi cardigan, while ideal for the cold air conditioning in the cinema, was actually a bit warm for being out in the sun, it was a beautiful winter day. But it was also the day we had set aside for the movies, so indoors we stayed!

Since I realised my new smaller wallet fits inside this Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I've been wearing it a lot more. I noticed it was the perfect shade to compliment the neon leopard print of the tee, as although it's officially "pale coral" it's really more of a peach.

Why I wore it:

Following the outfit formula above, I wore this Kmart grey leopard print tee with a matching grey bag, the Rebecca Minkoff love bag in the regular size.

Again I went with neutral jeans, black Nobody denim skinny jeans, and instead of ballet flats I wore Converse as I was spending the morning at the playground, catching up with Jess who I met on Instagram.

With all of the grey and black together I wanted to add just a little more colour, so wore my fun mustard cardigan that, like the tee, was a $2 bargain. It was so funny that Jess was wearing mustard too! We had a fun chat as the boys played together, before I had to go grab some groceries for lunch and get back for the guys working on our solar power system.

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a wardrobe staple for a mum, and changing it up with a printed tee like these fun leopard print ones is a great way to make your outfit feel a little more special. You can add more colour to your outfit by matching your bag to the print on the tee, or just throwing a bright cardigan on top if your print is neutral.

White Tees, Colourful Jeans, Cardigans and Printed Scarves

Two simple outfits for mornings at the park - bright denim, white tees, cosy scarves and cardigans with ankle boots and my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. Easy mum style!

What I wore:

ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

When I was unpacking my winter stuff and saw this scarf, I instantly thought of putting together this outfit. I wore it recently with a tee dress, and was excited to take the chance to wear it with the jeans! I love blue and green together and knew that the white tee would be the perfect base with the green and blue.

It was such a good outfit for a playdate in the park too, with some other parents I hadn't met before. Telling someone to look out for the green jeans works so well at a busy playground! It was nice to meet the mums and dads for the first time, and everyone commented on the jeans being a good idea as they stood out! Although the Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine Mini MAC bag is a completely different shade from the emerald green jeans I thought they went together really nicely.

It turned into a really warm day in the sun as the kids played together so I ended up taking my cardigan off. It had been a nice neutral topper for the outfit but was much too warm in the middle of the day, especially with the ankle boots and blanket scarf.

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

More colourful jeans! I wore my red pair this time, also a thrifted pair like the green ones above. It was a quieter day at the playground though - we have so many great parks around us so that it's often only a few kids in the parks on weekdays, and our favourite one is always quiet.

It's not the first time I've worn these red jeans with the navy cardigan, navy and red is a colour combination I keep coming back to! I know the red jeans would be perfect with this scarf too, it's a fun mix of colours and looks nice with the navy striped tee.

I did consider a red bag with this outfit but decided on the Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC instead as I thought the pants were red enough, and they already matched the scarf.

It was a colder day when I wore this outfit so I was thankful the boys didn't want to spend too much time at the park. A quick stop on the way home to pick up groceries and then a quiet afternoon at home.

Colourful Jeans Under $50:




How You can Wear It:

Bright denim is such a fun alternative to a classic pair of blue jeans! Still oh-so easy to wear with the skinny jeans staple of a tee, they make a really colourful outfit paired with other bright accessories or layers like a scarf, cardigan or bag.

Matching Shoes and Bags: Atmos&Here Lola Ankle Boots With Skinny Jeans, Tees and Printed Scarves

Should you match your shoes to your bag? This is an old fashion 'rule' that seems to be rarely followed nowadays! I mostly have neutral shoes and bright bags, but when I do stumble across a matching pair of shoes and bag, it's fun to wear them together like I have below, with my tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

These Atmos&Here Lola tan ankle boots are new ones I purchased recently to replace my old ones that literally fell to pieces when I pulled them out of storage this autumn.

What I wore:

grey maxi cardigan with red skinny jeans black tee tan scarf ankle boots and bag RM MAB camera SAHM style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | awayfromtheblue

ScarfASOS crinkle oversized leopard print scarf
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoes: Atmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots (new purchase)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist making all my accessories match in this outfit! With the bright red skinny jeans I thought the matching neutral tan ankle boots and MAB camera bag would be a good combination. The scarf was needed to keep me warm on a cooler Sunday morning as we went to church, and I think the leopard print, while not an exact match, compliments the bag and ankle boots nicely!

I kept everything else in my outfit neutral to let the red jeans shine - while I've never worn this particular black tee with the grey cardigan before, grey and black are colours I like wearing with these red skinny jeans.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, leopard print scarf, black tee, red skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've shared the boots on the blog as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: grey maxi cardigan and maxi dress, leopard print scarf and ombre knit, black tee and pink shorts, red skinny jeans and matching scarf, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and striped skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: red jeans in second trimester.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another very similar outfit combination to the one above! Again I stuck with a cosy cardigan, printed scarf, black tee and bright skinny jeans, accessorised with my matching tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

With the bright green skinny jeans being such a burst of colour in my outfit I went with a plain black tee, similar to the outfit above. I added in another colour with the navy waterfall cardigan and geometric print scarf though. Such an easy outfit formula!

I really like the way the matching tan bag and shoes worked with the green and blue in the outfit, they are a nice neutral combination and this made for a simple outfit for a day with the boys, running errands and visiting the library and the playground.

Tan Ankle Boots Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

If you have a pair of shoes that match a handbag, why not wear them together? You can add extra accessories like a scarf to your outfit to tie in the matchy-matchy even more, or use the matching shoes and bag to 'bookend' a colourful outfit like I have in the second outfit.

Two Ways To Wear Grey Kmart Leopard Print Tee In Winter

I saw this leopard print tee in Kmart and was tempted to buy it, at just $9. I decided I didn't need another grey tee though and put it back. When I stumbled across it again at just $2, I knew I had to get it! It's so soft and the leopard print is nice and subtle, it's so easy to wear! I've worn it two different ways below.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | grey leopard print tee worn with colourful winter layers skinny jeans cardigan regan bag mum style
JacketJeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Such a simple mum outfit: jeans, a tee, and Converse. Easily made suitable for winter with a cosy cardigan on top. To make this outfit a little more interesting, I went with bright green skinny jeans. While not as cheap as the leopard print tee, they were an opshop find and so also affordable, at just $5.

The green jeans and navy cardigan are a colour combination I often wear together, and I thought they complimented the neutral grey tee nicely. An easy outfit for a day at the playground and the library with the boys.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, circle pendant necklace, green skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag. First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

A busy day meant another easy outfit for mum life - this maxi skirt is a firm favourite, and the grey leopard print tee with it created a rather monochromatic outfit, especially with the leather jacket. I needed the jacket in the cooler morning but with a day of rushing around to appointments, it came off before lunchtime.

This outfit wasn't as colourful as the first one, so I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff mirco Regan bag. Such a fun pop of colour!


Last worn: printed leather jacket, House Of Harlow sunburst necklace, leopard print tee (above), black maxi skirt, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to wearprinted leather jacket worn 30 ways, black maxi skirt and foil tee, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and shorts.

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee is a wardrobe staple, especially when paired with a pair of jeans. To mix things up a little you can try colourful denim instead, or swap your skinny jeans for a maxi skirt, which still provides the coverage you need when running around after two toddlers!

Striped Tees and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Cross Body Bags In Winter

Winter weather means getting my fun collection of colourful denim out to enjoy! A simple striped tee and jeans outfit is easy mum style, with a cosy cardi on top for Brisbane's cold winter mornings.

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | awayfromtheblue

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I really struggled with what to wear when I pulled this outfit together! We had a messy play morning booked in for the boys, and I had some older clothes for them to wear. For me it was a little harder as I didn't want to get anything dirty 😅

Went with these green jeans as they are an opshop find and so not an expensive loss if they were ruined, this wool cardi that's already starting to look a little old and a striped tee to disguise any possible paint spills 😂 The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere is waterproof and easy to wipe clean so that was an obvious choice.

The boys had a fun time and although they were covered in the fake 'mud' I managed to keep my outfit clean! There was none of the paint there was last time that refused to wash out of their clothes.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, beaded necklace, navy stripe tee, green skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to weargrey maxi cardigan and maxi dress, navy stripe tee and flares, green skinny jeans and blue knit, Converse at disneyland, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere for international flight.

Why I wore it:

A nice quiet stay at home mum day with the boys. We headed to our fave park in the morning, grabbed some groceries and then my aunt and uncle came over later in the afternoon to check out our new place. My uncle helped setup part of my wardrobe room too, it's a work in progress and I will share a video when it's all done!

Felt like it had been a while since I'd worn this striped tee, so got it out for another wear. With purple jeans for something different, and the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag as I like pink and purple together. Easy outfit for a cooler day.

Striped Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee and jeans is a classic mum outfit. It works in warmer weather and in cooler weather you just need to add a cosy cardigan on top. For something a little different, you can try some brightly coloured jeans instead of the traditional blue denim.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Belted Dresses In the Office In Winter

I like belting cardigans over dresses! It's a fun way to add more colour and it works perfectly for days in the office as I'm usually throwing a cardigan over my outfit anyway with the cold aircon!

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

So happy that the winter weather is here in Brisbane and it's cool enough to get my cardigans out again! This one was an awesome $2 opshop find at my favourite opshop which sadly closed down. I love the way the mustard looks with the beige animal print dress, it's a nice combination, and even though the cardigan is shorter than the dress I think it works so nicely belted.

Since I'd picked the gold glitter belt to wear I picked some gold necklaces to wear to match. The navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag is a great neutral, go-with-everything bag and the perfect size for work.

Why I wore it:

Again wearing the same outfit formula, just with different pieces! I still had a little leopard print in my outfit though, with these fun ballet flats.

Again I matched my necklace to the belt, matching the black together even though the gold hardware on the belt and silver hardware on the necklace are different. I really like this House of Harlow necklace, an old style that was popular years ago but a necklace I still enjoy wearing.

This navy cardigan has been a frequent go-to this winter, it goes with everything, much like the Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag, and I like how it looked with the berry toned dress. Which is so pink in person but always looks more red in photos!

Ruffle Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A dress with a fun ruffle is a great feminine option for work. Although both of these dresses are sleeveless, if it's winter or you need to cover up your shoulders, you can just add a cardigan over the top and belt it for extra definition.

Orange Camis and Black Skinny Jeans

Layering up some orange camis for winter with black skinny jeans. Surprisingly, both of these camis came from my family! One from my sister's wardrobe, the other a gift from my mum.

TopJeanswest peach ruffle cami
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Continuing on with catching up with everyone after our Europe trip, I joined my mum friends for a rare night out. The last one we had was last year! It was good to dress up a little, but I wanted to keep things simple. Jeans and a nice top is a staple "I don't know what to wear" outfit, and was perfect for our dinner date.

The pastel cami is a piece I got from one of my sister's wardrobe clear outs. It was a nice combination with my pale denim moto jacket (a recent purchase) and a nice contrast with the black denim jeans. Of course I couldn't resist matching the blue in the denim jacket with the beaded necklace and the statement earrings. I do love a little matchy-matchy! That's why I picked my metallic Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag to wear too, to match the silver hardware on the jacket.

JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I was eager to wear this neon orange cami that my mum bought for me in the sales. My sister was buying the black one, and mum knows how much I love colour so thought I'd like this orange one. I love it so much! It has a great strappy back that I'll hopefully get to show off after winter!

A colder day meant I wore a similar outfit combo to the one above but swapped the denim jacket for a cosy wool maxi cardigan. This was perfectly comfortable for church, and kept me warm. Even with the bright orange cami, I wanted to add a little more interest to the outfit with the bold statement necklace and the printed jeans. It made for a really fun outfit!

With all the colour and print, I thought the neutral Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag would be the best accessory. I like how the tan worked with the orange cami as well as the neutral black and grey.


Last worn: wool cardigan, Ruby Olive necklace, Sass & Bide jeans, black ballet flats (above), Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've worn the cami as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

How You Can Wear It:

A bold orange cami is so fun to wear! You can keep it simple and wear it with black skinny jeans; adding more colour, print or texture to your outfit with accessories or jackets.



What I Bought In June:


I'd normally do a separate post and video for this, but I only bought two things so I'm just adding it onto this post!




Not expecting any purchases next month as I'll be doing #noBuyJuly again for the forth year in a row. Something I need as I've spent more this year than I expected to!
