Two Ways To Wear a Mustard Cardigan: With Green and Orange

This mustard cardigan was an awesome opshop find and just $2! It's a great way to add more colour to a winter outfit. I decided to be really colourful when I wore it recently and paired it with some other bright colours: green and orange.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really like green with yellow, and it's not the first time I've worn these green skinny jeans with yellow. I loved the bright combination, nice and cheerful for a wet day. It started raining on me as I took these pics!

Thankfully we didn't get too wet at school pick up and drop off, and the rest of the day I was working from home so I was cosy and dry. Jeans and a tee is a perfect work from home outfit, and this cardigan was a much dressier alternative for keeping warm than my daggy old bathrobe when I had a zoom call 😂

With the turquoise tassel necklace adding a little more colour too I went with a neutral bag, this Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is a classic that goes with so much.

Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This was inspired by an outfit I saw on Instagram on theshoestringshopper. As soon as I saw her orange and yellow outfit I wanted to try it myself with this orange tee and my mustard yellow cardigan. She was inspired by someone else to try it too, it's good seeing how inspiration spreads on Instagram!

I really liked this combo! It was something very different for me and I did feel very visible for school pickup and drop off and sitting on the sidelines of the gym as my son returned to his regular sports sessions. Feels like life is getting so busy now that things are reopening, but it's good to return to regular routines.

Despite a busy evening, we still had plenty of time for a browse in Kmart after dropping my eldest son off at school. No luck getting more pantry containers I'd hoped for, the stock shortage is painfully clear in many aisles. My little one did help me pick out some more Little People, Big Dreams books for our collection though! Kmart has them for $8 each, half the price of everywhere else I've seen them.

Stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out the brights, as well as my grey skinny jeans as black felt a bit too harsh.

Other ways to wear: mustard cardigan and chambray skirt, marigold tee over a dress, grey skinny jeans and leopard print, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi dress

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse in third trimester


How You Can Wear It:

Mustard is a very versatile shade of yellow! You can use a mustard cardigan to bring some colour to darker or neutral winter layers. It works equally well paired with other bright things in your outfit too like the green skinny jeans or the orange tee.

Printed Dresses Layered With Cardigans, Leggings and Converse For Winter

With the colder weather in Brisbane now it's winter I noticed I'd been reaching for my jeans a lot. In an effort to change things up a little I winterised some printed dresses for the cooler temps with colourful cardigans and black leggings. I also tried a different shoe other than my ugly sneakers. These Converse don't have as much support for my injured knee as my running shoes but I needed something different to wear!

What I wore:

mustard cardigan with green floral tee dress, leggings Converse mini mac bag | away from blue

Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
DressAtmos & Here Willow printed tee dress with black leggings underneath
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This mustard cardigan was a a bargain opshop find and has been a favourite every year since! I thought the colour combo might be nice with the green in this tee dress. I did really like the colours together, and that the cardigan was just the right length with the dress.

Wasn't too happy with the leggings though! It was a windy and very cold day so they were a bit chilly as they are just plain black leggings, not fleece lined or anything. I also think this outfit would have looked better with ankle boots than Converse to balance out the proportions a bit. While my ankle boots are flats they do have a tiny heel so I wasn't up to trying them with my knee injury. Especially as I had a couple errands to run after the school drop off, I needed comfortable shoes.


Last worn: mustard cardigan, gold filigree heart necklace, floral print tee dress, leggings, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Dress: Rivers Aztec print dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I liked the proportions of this outfit better, maybe because the waterfall drape of this cardigan was longer than the dress and it looked more balanced. This cardigan is also slightly thicker than the mustard one and I felt very cosy in this! It helped that it was a warmer day too, at least in the afternoon. It was still a bit chilly for the school drop off in the morning.

This dress was definitely overdue a wear and it was good to winterise it. It had popped up in my Facebook memories and I knew it would work well with leggings. I wasn't sure how the orange in the print would work with the red cardigan and blue mini MAC bag but I think it all came together nicely. Colourful and cosy for the school run and working from home.

Colourful Cardigans Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Colourful cardigans are a great choice when the weather cools and a plain block colour one can work really well over a simple printed dress to make it warm enough to wear in winter. Especially when paired with leggings. Maybe just pick thicker ones for a really cold day!

Green and Yellow Worn Two Ways: Jeans and Tee | Weekday Wear Link Up

Jeans and and a tee again! It was my home isolation outfit of choice back when I wanted to get out of pyjamas or loungewear, but also didn't want to put in too much effort if I wasn't going anywhere.

This time I round I paired my yellow tees with green jeans and some cardigans, as the autumn weather had truly arrived in Brisbane and the extra layer was needed. Now it's properly winter and a few more layers are required.

What I wore:

pastel yellow tee with olive skinny jeans and grey cardigan autumn work from home style | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram| grey cardigan with pastel yellow tee and olive skinny jeans
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this yellow tee with olive - it looked nice with my olive shorts so I knew I'd wear it with these olive jeans in the cooler weather. I really liked the combination, i think the muted shades work so well together. I added a necklace for a little bit of extra interest to my outfit and I think with the long necklace and long grey cardigan the tee looked better untucked - it's a bit oversized so I usually tuck it in, but I liked the longer lines of this outfit.

The grey cardigan wasn't quite as cosy as my daggy old bathrobe I usually wear around the house, but it was a more formal choice for a couple of zoom sessions I had on that day!


Last worn: yellow tee, tortoiseshell necklace, grey cardigan, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearyellow tee and red maxi skirt, grey cardigan and maxi skirt, olive skinny jeans for a long haul flight.

Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a much bolder outfit with the mustard tee and the green skinny jeans. Again, this isn't a new colour combination for me, I love wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with these green jeans, but it was the first time I'd worn this mustard tee and jeans together. As it was such a cold morning and I had to pop out to the post office, I added another colour to my outfit with this cosy navy cardigan.

Again, I've worn this navy cardigan with the green jeans before, but I really liked the way the trio of colours worked together in this outfit. Especially with the matching navy necklace! The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag was a nice neutral with all of the colours in my outfit, and it was still packed and ready to go after my last trip out the house a few days before.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, mustard tee, statement necklacegreen skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to wearnavy waterfall cardigan and pencil skirt, mustard tee worn two ways, green skinny jeans and floral kimono, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere and maxi skirt.

Yellow Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A yellow tee is a fun colour to have in your wardrobe! Yellow is a bright pop with a neutral pair of blue jeans but it works well with other colours like green and navy too.

Waterfall Cardigans, Printed Shorts And V-Neck Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

It's been a very hot spring so far in Brisbane but the mornings and evenings started out a little cooler, so I decided to add some cardigans to my shorts and tee outfits to keep me warm. Even if I did end up taking both cardigans off by lunchtime 😂


What I wore:

magenta cardigan with pink accessories grey tee and printed shorts converse spring mum outfit | awayfromblue

magenta cardigan with Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | magenta purple cardigan with grey tee printed shorts converse sahm spring style pink mini mac bag

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I really like pink and purple together and I like how this purpley-magenta cardigan works so nicely with the neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. They were fun accessories with the monochromatic grey tee and black printed shirt too. The cardigan became much too hot halfway round the trail the kids were biking and scooting around so I quickly took it off. Had been perfect in the colder start to the day though.

Nice quiet day with the kids, shorts and tee and Converse was a great outfit, even if the cardigan didn't stay on long.


Last worn: purple cardigan, pink beaded necklace, grey tee, printed shorts, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wearpurple cardigan worn 30 ways, grey tee in the office, printed shorts and mustard tank, Converse and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC bag and little black dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This navy cardigan didn't stay on long at all! It had seemed like a nice idea in the morning but I quickly realised during swimming lessons that it was far too hot for it, and left it in the car!

I did like the way the navy cardigan worked so well with the navy printed shorts and the bright mustard tee, just was a much warmer day than I anticipated! I like mustard and navy together, and although the yellow in the print on the shorts is lemon I think the mustard tee paired nice with it and was a fun pop of colour with the navy. I went a little matchy-matchy with my accessories, wearing my metallic silver mini MAC bag and also my glittery silver sneakers.

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:
In spring and autumn, cardigans are great layers to add for the cooler mornings and evenings and aren't too bulky to pop in a bag if you take them off during the day. You can try wearing your cardigans with printed shorts when you know the day is going to heat up, using the cardigan to add more colour like I did in the first outfit, or matching the print in the shorts like I did in the second outfit.

Spring: Kimonos and Skinny Jeans With Space Dye Tops And Green Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip Bag

Two different skinny jeans and kimonos outfits for two very different days! I'm enjoying the warmer spring weather as I get to wear my kimonos again after passing over them all winter.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag with floral kimono duster | awayfromtheblue

EarringsKmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings
Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

This gorgeous green duster kimono was a piece I picked up in the Jeanswest sale back in August. I've been making more of an effort to wear green recently and found out I quite like it, so when I saw this released I knew I was going to snap it up on sale. Even if I did have to visit two stores before I found it, ha! Thought it was the perfect topper for my neutral skinny jeans and tee outfit, and the little emerald green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag compliments it nicely.

I did consider wearing a green statement necklace with this but decided it might be a little too much green! I went with this recently thrifted blue beaded necklace, which matched my navy tassel earrings. The space dye tee was thrifted at the same time too, a great wardrobe basic that still had the tags attached.

Wore this for a relaxed Saturday with a big walk for the dogs, swim lessons and attending a local fashion show. The theme was colours for spring so I felt this green floral kimono was the perfect topper. Was a nice lightweight layer for a windy day, as you can tell from the pics!


Last worn: tassel earrings, blue beaded necklace, space dye tee, black skinny jeans, ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip. First time I've shared the kimono on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearspace dye tee and red jeans, black skinny jeans and knitted jumper, ballet flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip and matching necklace.

Perfect for pregnancyballet flats in second trimester.

Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans:  Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In complete contrast to the outfit above, this is a lot darker and not as colourful (even though I'm wearing the same green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag) and a lot cosier! It was also not as relaxing of a day, ha!

It was a really cold morning so I figured I'd better get this knitted poncho / kimono out again to keep me warm at the playground with the kids. I ended up regretting this though when the day heated up, and in the middle of running errands I left it in the car, just too hot!

I love this peplum space dye tee and I thought the effect on it was subtle enough that it looked nice with the print on the kimono. I really liked the outfit, even if I didn't wear the knitted poncho for long! The skinny jeans and Converse were good for all the running around we did. I had a few errands to run and places to visit, and some roadworks meant changing my plans a little with the diversions so I was a bit flustered all morning! As you can see by the setting sun in the pic, didn't even get to take my usual outfit photo in the morning. One of those crazy busy days.

Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A kimono is the perfect topper for those in-between seasons! You can keep it light and airy with a viscose fabric one, or be a little cosier in the colder mornings and evenings with something knitted. A kimono is an easy layer to take off if needed when the weather changes.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed Tanks, Waterfall Cardigans & Grey Pencil Skirts

Wearing some bright tanks into the office for today's Weekday Wear Linkup. The bright colours seemed so perfect for spring, and the cosy cardigans on top were needed in the cooler morning and evening commute.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
TopJeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I really liked all the colours in this outfit! This grey jersey pencil skirt might be a little too casual for some offices, but in my business casual office it works fine, especially with a cute printed top. This leaf print tank is a firm favourite and one of those pieces that looks just as good with shorts as it does with a skirt for the office! The red cardigan matched the red leaves in the print nicely, and added even more colour to the outfit.

With the navy Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag and the navy necklace matching, I decided to throw in just a little extra colour and wear my newly purchased teal earrings with this outfit. I really liked the extra touch of colour and the statement earrings worked well even with the statement necklace.


Last worn: red cardigan, navy beaded necklace, leaf print tank, grey jersey pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the earrings on the blog as they are  a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, just changing up the colours slightly! Again I went for a grey pencil skirt with a cosy cardigan, a navy one this time that matched the Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote nicely. I added some colour to these neutrals with the coral brushstroke striped tank and a turquoise and white beaded necklace. This necklace is another new purchase, an awesome thrift find and a nice way to introduce another colour to my outfit.

Couldn't decide what flats to wear with this so went with this camel pair that go with everything. A simple outfit for a busy day at work.

How You Can Wear It:

A cosy waterfall cardigan in a plain block colour is a nice way to add comfort, warmth and extra colour to your outfit. You can keep it simple and match it to the print in your top, or add a contrasting colour to a bright top like I have in the second outfit.

30 Ways To Wear: Grey Maxi Cardigan

I'm sharing another outerwear piece for this months 30 ways to wear post! Last month I showed you 30 ways to wear a camel trench coat, this month it's this lovely grey longline maxi cardigan (also known as a duster) from Jeanswest, in the cosiest Australian wool.

Every month I share something I've worn more than 30 times to give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can wear a similar piece in your wardrobe. Inspired by the 30 wears challenge I first heard about in The True Cost documentary.


30 Ways To Wear: Grey Maxi Cardigan


30 Ways To Wear: Grey Wool Maxi Cardigan Awayfromtheblue blog


It does feel a little strange sharing this cardigan right now, in the middle of spring when it's been packed away for a few weeks! It's a very thick and cosy Australian wool cardigan, perfect for a Brisbane winter, but not something that's been needed much in the hot spring we've had so far. I was so happy to realise I'd hit 30 wears with it though this year (35 to be exact) so I was eager to share it.

Cost Per Wear


I picked up this 'Alice' wool cardigan in the Jeanswest autumn sale back in 2017, so I've had it 2 and a half years. I paid $88.15 for it, and with 35 wears so far that works out to $2.50 a wear. Still more wears to go to reach the "$1 per wear" figure most people aim for, but I'm impressed that I've worn it so much so far. 35 wears over 3 winters is about 12 wears a year, and given that our winter weather barely lasts three months in Brisbane that's a great number! It's something I like reaching for over and over when it's chilly.

It is definitely showing its age, there's a lot of pilling on it as it's been worn and washed. I've run a fuzzball remover over it a few times but it's quite a thick wool so I'm not sure you see much of a difference, ha! It's still so cosy and comfortable though so I will continue to wear it, nothing wrong with pieces looking a little lived in! It's expected for wool to have pilling over time I think anyway.




30 Ways To Wear: Maxi Cardigan Video Style







Grey Maxi Cardigan And Bright Jeans

A nice neutral, long cardigan like this is wonderful to wear with different coloured denim! I love wearing my red, green and purple skinny jeans with this cardigan, it's a fun and colourful way to stay cosy through winter. This longline cardigan looks great with skinny jeans in any shade.


Grey Cardigan and Printed Jeans

Of course it's not just colourful jeans I'll wear with grey maxi cardigan with, I have a couple of pairs of printed jeans too and this cardigan works equally well with printed denim. Pairing this cardigan with the Sass & Bide chevron printed jeans is a frequent go-to, as you can see! If you're a fan of leggings, you could try printed leggings instead.


Maxi Cardigan And Scarves

This wool cardigan is so cosy in winter, but sometimes you need a little extra layer to keep you warm, especially on a windy day. A big blanket scarf comes in helpful, and with the cardigan being a neutral plain block colour you can pick any printed scarf to wear with it. Leopard is a favourite of mine!


Longline Cardigan With Jeans and Boots


5 ways to wear longline duster maxi cardigan with jeans and boots | away from the blue blog


Sometimes a scarf, wool cardigan and jeans just isn't enough on a cold day, so you have to pull out the boots as well! The longline of this cardigan looks so great when paired with tall boots, although as you can see in the last photo there ankle boots work just as well.


Grey Cardigan With Grey Jeans

Going monochromatic and pairing a grey cardigan with a grey pair of jeans lets you have more fun with the res of your outfit - either picking bright and colourful accessories like scarves or shoes or bags, or a brightly coloured tee to break up all the grey. I like matching things together, and a grey cardigan and jeans are a great combination.


Maxi Cardigan With Skirts And Dresses

I do wear this grey maxi cardigan a lot with jeans, but I've worn it with dresses and skirts too! These three outfits show you how you can wear a maxi cardigan with a maxi dress, pencil skirt, or maxi skirt. It's a nice cosy warm layer to add on top of a skirt or dress.


Grey Cardigan With Simple Tops and Jeans

Of course, the simplest outfits are the best! A neutral grey maxi cardigan like this is the perfect throw on and go layer on top of a simple jeans and tee (or jeans and tank!) outfit when it's a little too chilly for bare arms. It's fuss free as it really does go with everything, as you've seen from these 30 different ways to wear it.
