Vloggers Catch Up Video: Striped Tees and Skinny Jeans With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Exciting post today, sharing my usual two outfits and my first video collaboration with a brand! I mentioned before I got talking to a brand I love at the bloggers brunch and so I featured them in a video when I went to catch up with some other vlogging mums. Unfortunately, I didn't love my outfits as much as I loved catching up with my YouTube friends, I ended up regretting my outfit choices.

What I wore:

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Wasn't sure what kind of day it would be, so I took the opportunity to wear all the layers! The boys and I headed to New Farm park for an Australian Vlogging Mums catch-up. We were going to be sitting by the water and it was a cold morning so cosy pieces seemed like a great idea. By the time we reached the park it was much warmer. I left the scarf in the car, and the cardigan came off and on through the morning, spending most of the time just in jeans and a tee.

I thought this little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag was a cute touch with the red logo on the tee, and it also fits nicely inside the baby bag to help reduce the number of bags I had to carry on the way back to the car.

I did regret wearing the glitter shoes. They were comfortable and I thought they'd be fun, but they did get a little dirty. Not as dirty as the new shoes I put on the boys before they got up to their mischief though! You can see what I mean in the video. Bad shoe choices for the whole family there!

Why I wore it:

This day was not as fun as the one above! Similar outfit formula though, again with a striped tee, skinny jeans and those fun glittery shoes. I added the purple cardigan and blue scarf for some extra colour with all of the neutrals. Like the first outfit, I added a cute and colourful Rebecca Minkoff bag. This time my plum mini MAB tote.

The plan was for a relaxing Saturday with a swim lessons and grocery shopping, but plans quickly changed when the little one was unwell. Took him to the doctors where I again regretted my outfit choice.

Sick kids are messy, and I was wearing a white tee...which wasn't quite as white by the time the doctor called us through!

It was a nice outfit, just a bad day! Thankfully the doctor could give us some medicine to help.

Striped Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Striped tees are a wardrobe staple! Paired with neutral skinny jeans, it's easy classic mum style. For extra interest and warmth you can add a colourful scarf as well as a fun bright handbag. Having a neutral outfit makes adding colourful pieces on top simpler as you don't have to worry about colours clashing.

Red Tees, Skinny Jeans, Cardigans and Louis Vuitton Bags

At the end of winter, while the days were warming up in Brisbane, the mornings were still pretty cold. It means layering up, so by the time it reaches 25 / 28 degrees (82 F) in the afternoon, you've shed all of your layers.

Despite wearing a similar outfit formula on both of these days, I had very different experiences with each!

What I wore:

red tee with skinny jeans converse grey maxi cardigan louis vuitton speedy bag | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with heatstamp | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram grey cardigan skinny jeans leopard print scarf and red tee outfit

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy but fun filled day. I had the day off from work to volunteer at the Ekka (Brisbane's royal state show, kinda like the state fairs in the US). I dropped the boys off at daycare, ran a quick errand and started filming some videos before it was time to leave. Just as I was in the middle of filming I got a call from daycare that one of the boys had a fever. I frantically called around, found someone to take care of him, rushed to daycare to pick him up and then dropping him off in safe hands I headed out to the Ekka.

Got to the Ekka with plenty of time to stroll around taking in the sights, get some showbags and then get to work. My volunteer shift finished slightly early so I quickly picked up my bags and headed home to my boys, after quickly texting to make sure all was still okay. By the time I got home he really wasn't in a good state. I rushed him to the doctors (thank goodness for the 24/7 primary care centre nearby!) where the doctor scolded us for bringing him there instead of calling an ambulance and ended up calling the ambulance for us. Ending the night in Lady Cilento hospital was not how I had planned the day to go, but at least he's feeling better now.

Outfit wise at least I was comfortable! I picked the Converse as I knew I'd be in the kitchen volunteering for most of the day, and the scarf and cardigan were good layers to take off and on as it got too hot, and easily fit inside my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull worn on arm | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram navy and red skinny jeans outfit with poppy print scarf LV NF tote
Earrings: Kmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, but a much more relaxed day! I wore this a few days after the incident above, I had scheduled the day off in advance to try give myself some downtime. Thankfully the little one was feeling much better so I didn't feel too guilty leaving him to have some me-time. I spent some time Christmas present shopping, picking up things I'd noticed the boys might like on a previous shopping trip. Yes it's early, but you need to take advantage of any kid-free moments you can get to shop!

As it was supposed to warm up to such a hot day, but I had an early start, I dressed in layers. I thought this poppy print scarf worked nicely with the red tee, but I needed a little something to cover my arms to so went with this navy waterfall cardigan. The navy cardigan also perfectly matched the statement earrings! By the time afternoon arrived and it was 20 degrees warmer than when I first ventured out, the scarf and cardigan had been ditched. Again, it was nice that they could both fit inside my bag, the Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull this time.

After a busy morning, I had a leisurely lunch and treated myself to a pedicure in anticipation of the warmer weather sticking around. It was nice to enjoy the sunshine and warmth for a bit! I even managed to film a complete video too, after the less than perfect attempt a few days before.





Red Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A red tee is a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe! It's a fun pop of colour against neutral layers like in the first outfit, or works well with other colours like navy as in the second outfit. When in doubt, pair a red tee with neutral skinny jeans.

Green Pants With Mustard Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Bag and Cosy Cardigans

Green is a colour I find tricky to wear. I've had a few green pieces in my wardrobe over the years, but it's usually due to buying something despite it being green, rather than buying something because it's green like I do with colours like mustard or blue.

After getting green maternity pieces a few years ago, I've been open to trying green more often. I've tried olive and blush together before, and another combo I like but rarely wear is green and yellow.

Below I'm wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with some newly purchased green pieces. In an effort to try mix things up a little in my wardrobe, I bought 3 green pieces in one month!

What I wore:

mustard cardigan, star print scarf, green tee and olive skinny cargo pants micro regan bag | awayfromblue

olive pants with mustard rebecca minkoff micro regan harvest gold bag | awyafromtheblue

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Scarf: star print pashmina
TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
Pants: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants (new purchase)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Both the tee and the pants are new purchases. The Jeanswest dark green tee looks almost grey, it's a very unique colour. I decided I'd try it with these olive skinny cargo pants that I thrifted for $3. Given that I thrifted the cardigan from the opshop last year for $2, and the scarf was a gift, it's easy to see the accessories are the most expensive part of my outfit!

I hadn't been feeling the best, but had a few errands to run and so decided to wear this outfit I'd planned as I didn't have the energy to come up with something else. While I feel this outfit looks a little crumpled and creased, I did love the colours of everything together. It was a great first wear of the pants. I like that the green tee is a different enough shade from the green pants, and the mustard cardigan and micro Regan bag were great pieces to add.

Nice and comfortable for a morning of running errands with the boys, taking my cardigan and scarf off and on as the temperatures fluctuated before calling it a day and heading home to rest with less achieved than I'd hoped. At least I liked the outfit!


Last worn: mustard cardigan, star print scarf, dark green tee, camel flats, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag. It's the first time I've worn the pants as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmustard cardigan and little black dress, star print scarf and wrap dress, dark green tee and pencil skirt, camel flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag and denim shorts.

JacketJeanswest Alice longline Australian wool cardigan

TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves (also in black)
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This outfit was not as much of a bargain as the outfit above (with the grey cardigan alone costing more than all the clothes in the first outfit, even though it was a sale buy!). I still liked it though. I went with a similar outfit formula to wear these newly thrifted jeans. $5 for new with tags ASOS petite jeans in the opshop was too good to pass up, even if I did debate the purchase for a little while as it's a rather bold shade of green. I wore this to go to playgroup with the boys.

For the first wearing of the pants I thought I'd stick with the classics - a grey tee looks good with everything, and the grey maxi cardigan was a nice neutral topper along with the silver shoes. I did really enjoy the mustard and olive combo above, so I decided to try the mustard micro Regan bag with the emerald green pants. Along with the parrot print scarf with green and gold in the print, I ended up loving this colour combination. I think the scarf made it work perfectly by matching the pants and the bag. I do like a bit of matchy matchy sometimes! I've worn this scarf with teal before and really liked it then too!

Green Pants Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Colourful green pants like these don't have to be tricky to wear. While the shades of green are different, I stuck with a basic outfit formula. A neutral tee, a cosy cardigan and then a pop of colour with a bag. This formula works for any colour of pants you're thinking of wearing!
You can keep things really pared back with a neutral cardigan like in the last outfit, or continue your bright pop of colour bag into your outfit with a similar coloured knit like the first outfit.

Foil Print Tees, Waterfall Cardigans, Skinny Jeans and Mini MAC

Feeling a little uninspired with my winter wardrobe, I decided to go through and pick out some of my favourite pieces, these foil print tees, and build outfits around them. With cosy scarves and cardigans, as I wore them a few weeks ago when winter was in full swing in Brisbane.

What I wore:

red cardigan, black jeans, ankle boots foil print tee, aqua mini MC SAHM Style | awayfromblue

red cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I kind of threw this outfit together, thinking that I liked navy and red together, I love the little aqua mini MAC bag with the red cardigan, and the gold embroidered feathers on the scarf tied in with the foil polka dots. Reviewing the photos I'm not 100% happy with it, I think having something more than just the embroidery on the scarf and foil on the tee matching would have looked better. And maybe tucking the tee into the jeans!

Just one of those outfits where you love all the pieces individually but you're not too sure they all work together in one outfit!

This was a comfortable outfit though, and quite quick to pull together as I was in a rush to get the boys out the house. Still at that point where we try to do things in the morning and get home in time for naptime!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Followed a similar outfit formula to the one above, with a waterfall drape cardigan, skinny jeans and a foil print tee. I liked this outfit much more though - perhaps because of how much I love blue and purple together. I liked the outfit so much that when I spilled a little something on it while rushing out the door and it wouldn't brush off with just water I just rearranged the scarf to hide it, ha!

This taupe skull scarf isn't just a good stain hider, it's also a nice neutral with the colourful navy cardigan, purple jeans and aquamarine mini MAC bag.

We got to playgroup to discover that it was a messy play day - it had completely slipped my mind and so I cringed every time one of the boys covered my outfit in something else sticky. They had a blast though, and true to the lovely organiser's words, all of the food colouring and flour and stains washed out of our clothes after. Even that stain I'd spilled on my tee before we left the house!

Foil Print Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Foil print tees are a fun addition to your wardrobe. They feel a little dressier than a plain tee, but are still just as easy to wear. On a colder day, just add a scarf, cardigan and skinny jeans for an easy mum-friendly outfit.

Colourful Winter Outfits: Navy Dresses and Pink Skull Scarves

Sometimes on my work from home days I like to throw on a dress. It's a quick outfit to pull together to get the boys out the on time door for daycare drop off, and it's comfortable for sitting all day at home working.

I stuck to my usual easy dress outfit formula for two recent work from home days, and added in some colourful cardigans and Alexander McQueen skull scarves. Even though it's winter, it's nice to wear a bit of colour.

What I wore:

navy stripe tee dress in colourful winter outfit with pink scarf, mustard cardigan and rebecca minkoff micro regan bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram pink navy and mustard yellow striped tee dress work from home outfit winter
Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
ScarfAlexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Every time I wear this dress I seem to notice it's been a long time between wears! With the thick fabric and longer sleeves, it's usually packed away with my winter things which doesn't give me many opportunities in the year to wear it. It's such a comfortable tee dress though, with a slightly longer hem in the back so that I feel comfortable sitting on the floor with the boys when I'm wearing it.

You might have seen I've just posted blue and yellow outfits, and I'm wearing the colour combination again! I like yellow and blue together, and really like this mustard cardigan with the navy striped dress. Of course with the yellow cardigan, it made sense to pick out this Alexander McQueen skull scarf. It's yellow skulls on a pink background so a nice combination with this outfit. The mustard yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag was another further bit of matchy-matchy.

The only thing I didn't like about this outfit was the tights. Having no luck finding fleece lined leggings, I tried a pair of these footless tights - you can see the little slivers of exposed ankle. They got some pulls in them on this first wear. With the boys in daycare while I worked it wasn't like I spent a long day with the kids being rough and tumble - I'm sad that they didn't have the quality behind them (and that I didn't keep the receipt!). Otherwise, this was such a great outfit.

JacketJeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle

Dress: Zara printed bib front tunic dress
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I wasn't quite as pleased with this outfit. It seemed like a great idea, a navy shift dress layered up with fleece lined tights and tall boots to keep me cosy, with a purple cardigan and pink scarf for some extra colour, topped off with the neutral silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

As I mentioned on Instagram, I think the white print on the dress and the mostly cream scarf didn't go that well together. I really like pink and blue together, but I think the first outfit works better as the scarf is more of a block colour. With the cream background and the hot pink skulls on this scarf, it doesn't sit as nicely with the print of the dress. Still a great colour combination and scarf, and just maybe not the right piece with this outfit.

The cardigan also was not as thick as I needed on such a cold day. The dress is long sleeved, but it's a thin viscose material and a thin cardigan on top wasn't as warm as I needed for a colder than expected winter day. Luckily I spent most of it working from home, but having to do the daycare runs and taking my son to his specialist appointment in the afternoon made me wish I'd worn something a bit warmer.

Skull Scarves Under $50:



They might not be Alexander McQueen, but they are still as fun to wear!


How You Can Wear It:

It's easy to add colour to a winter outfit with bright cardigans and fun scarves. A cheerful scarf with more than one colour in the print (like the pink and yellow skull scarf in the first outfit) makes it easy to pick other pieces like a cardigan that coordinates with it. Or you can go all out and pick different complementary colours like I did in the second outfit. Sticking with a neutral outfit base like a navy dress makes adding colourful accessories even simpler.

Printed Jeans and Basic Tees | Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC and Micro Regan

Jeans are a frequently worn option in winter for me. I do try mix things up a little in my effort to stay away from blue jeans. I have a few colourful pairs, and some really fun printed pairs. I'm wearing two printed jeans below, in a monochromatic outfit and a second more colourful one. Although I'm wearing different prints and colours, I kept to a simple outfit formula in both outfits with basic tees and cosy cardigans.

What I wore:

SAHM style: monochrome printed jeans outfit with space dye tee pop of colour micro regan bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold on wrist | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram monochrome printed jeans outfit mustard yellow rebecca minkoff micro regan bag

Necklace: Kmart Gold and Navy beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

No scarf as this was a rather warm winter day! In fact, when we came out of ABA mother's group and we went to grab some groceries, I took the cardigan off as it was a really warm winter afternoon. It was nice to enjoy the sunshine briefly.

I thrifted this tee a while back to replace a plain black v-neck one that I'd destroyed in the wash, and realised this hadn't been worn in a while. With the space dye print being similar to the lines on the chevron print of these jeans, I thought they would look quite nice together. I was worried the print mix was a little bold, definitely bolder than I expected when I put it on, so to keep things simple I added a plain black cardigan over the top. I'd planned to add my mustard cardigan, to match my mustard Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag, but I think the black worked perfectly. It let my little bag be the touch of colour with the outfit.

I felt the silver shoes tied in nicely with the monochrome outfit, even if the necklace was gold and the bag was mustard. Really liked how well the printed jeans handled messy food covered toddler hands at the ABA mothers group too, ha! Prints are so good for disguising finger marks!

Christmas In July Boxswap!


Super excited to share my first every box swap video! I did a Christmas in July surprise box swap / secret santa with some of the other Australian Mum Vloggers I've gotten to know this year.




What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC, chain strap doubled | away from the blue

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another day with the boys, another chance to use the same outfit formula with another pair of printed jeans. I was surprised to realise I hadn't worn this blue marle tee with the pink leopard print jeans before, I really like blue and pink together! As the outfit felt a bit bold, I thought a neutral grey cardigan would be the best layer to add. Kept me cosy too, as this is wool.

With the neutral white Converse shoes as well it was looking like a good outfit, but I decided to go even bolder with the hot pink mini MAC bag. While an even brighter shade of pink than on the leopard print jeans, it really popped and just made the outfit for me. I tried doubling the strap over a little to make it a little shorter. I do that frequently with my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. This mini MAC is not as structured though, and the soft leather pulled a big, as you can see in the close up shot. I don't think I'll try that again!

Again, a slightly warmer day so I went without a scarf. We spent most of our time indoors too, running a couple errands and taking the boys to rhyme time at the library.

Printed Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Printed jeans are easy to pair with basic tees, and neutral cardigans if the weather is cooler. You don't have to stick to neturals though! While the first monochrome outfit works, the second outfit follows the same formula but with more colourful pieces. Don't be afraid to add more colour to a printed piece.  You can stick with a colour combination you already love to make it easy.
