Colourful Knits and Printed Jeans With Converse & Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two colourful knits and printed skinny jeans outfits, with some very different thoughts on each outfit! While both outfits features pieces I love but rarely wear, I'll be putting one piece back into storage for the time being!

What I wore:

cobalt knit and pink neon leopard print jeans with converse and purple bag mum style | awayfromblue

pink leopard print jeans with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Pants: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I really like wearing these pink leopard print pants with blue, so on a colder winter day I thought this blue knit would be a great piece to wear with them. I'm surprised I haven't worn the combination before actually! It was a nice outfit for a warmer winter day - although it was a bit chilly in the shade, this light cobalt knit was all that was needed in the sun.

I did worry my outfit was maybe a little overdressed for a morning running errands and visiting the playground, as these pants can feel a bit loud, being neon leopard print! But they are so fun to wear and I enjoyed wearing them, they were definitely overdue a wear!

The pink beaded necklace matches the leopard print so nicely, and the white Converse continue on the white in the background of the pants. For something a little less matchy-matchy I picked my Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag to wear. I like purple with both blue and pink, it makes a lovely trio worn all together.

KnitWildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't enjoy wearing this as much! I love the chevron printed jeans with the Converse, that's an outfit I've worn lots before, and the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag was a great pop of colour. It also matched the red on the rainbow knit nicely.

This Wildfox distressed knit is one I got from my friend's wardrobe clearout. It's so soft and special to me as it came from her. However it is a little tricky to wear around toddlers. I've tried it a couple of times over the years, and just like another time I wore it, I've rolled the sleeves up a bit to hide some of the distressing and make it less tempting for toddlers to pull on. But pull on it they did! It's already distressed so it's not like they were making new holes in it, but it's not designed for curious kids to try sticking their arm through the holes 😂

After wrestling them off my jumper I decided to still wear it out anyway for the morning - surely once distracted by the park the boys would give up playing with the cosy jumper. But by lunchtime it turned into one of those freak winter heatwave days and I was melting in my cosy outfit. It was easy for the boys to shed some of the layers I'd put them in that morning, me not so much. Thankfully we made it home without dying of heatstroke!

I promptly resolved to put this knit back in the winter box, to try getting it out again next year when the boys are a little bigger. Hopefully they will like it just as much then as they do now ("I like your jumper Mummy, it makes me smile"), but be a little less grabby with it!

Printed Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans are a winter wardrobe staple, especially when paired with cosy knits. For something different, try a pair of printed denim instead. You can use the print to add more colour to your outfit, like I have in the first outfit, or just add more detail to an outfit like in the second outfit.

Grey Knits And Green Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags

More simple winter mum style: cosy grey knits, with green skinny jeans and two different Rebecca Minkoff Love bags.

What I wore:

ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood
Top: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to take the boys to a local indoor play area, as it had been raining overnight and was predicted to rain more so we couldn't head to the park, but they needed to run around a bit. I picked an easy and comfortable outfit, with my green skinny jeans that have become a frequent go-to this winter, my favourite (and only!) snood and my Converse. The grey knit is one I thrifted before our Europe trip and took overseas with me, it worked well with my olive jeans so I wanted to try wearing it with these brighter green ones. I really liked this combination.

I'd been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff love cross body bag that week so decided to keep wearing it with this outfit, I thought the neutral grey went nicely with the knit.

JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Despite following a similar outfit formula, I didn't like this second outfit as much as the first one. I thought the olive skinny jeans would go nicely with this fun foil polka dot print knit, and I did like the combination, especially when I matched the foil polka dots with the silver glitter shoes for a very sparkly outfit. You know I like a bit of matchy-matchy!

With the silver sparkle and then the pop of colour with the coral Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I felt that this outfit was enough as it was and I didn't add a scarf to it. It was a warm day, sitting in the sunshine at the playground, and I was glad I hadn't added the scarf as I didn't really need it.

I did feel that this outfit was missing a little something when I looked at the photos afterwards though, and wish I had added a scarf, I think the first outfit looked great because of the printed snood. A nice outfit, just one that feels a bit flat in the pics.


Last worn: foil polka dot knit, olive skinny jeans, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag.

Other ways to wearfoil polka dot knit and shorts, olive skinny jeans for international flight, silver glitter sneakers and denim shorts, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag with navy.



Grey Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey knit and jeans is a staple mum outfit for winter, especially paired with comfortable shoes like this! To mix it up a little, you can wear colourful denim instead of the classic blue, and add a printed scarf or brightly coloured bag to make your outfit pop.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

Wrap Top Worn 2 Ways With Camel Trench Coat, Converse and Skinny Jeans

Living in Brisbane, I don't really have a lot of winter coats. This thick lined trench coat is as wintery as I get, so I knew it had to come on the trip to Scotland with me. A classic camel trench, it works well with skinny jeans and Converse.

What I wore:

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very fun-filled day! For something a little different, we took the boys into Edinburgh via the train rather than the bus. Then we visited the wonderful Camera Obscura. It's a must-do in Edinburgh, especially with kids. There are 5 levels and we had to pull the boys away from each - they didn't want to leave as there was so much to do!

Kept cosy but wearing my blue wrap top under my trench coat, as it has 3/4 length sleeves. It was still a little chilly at the top of Camera Obscura though, even with my purple scarf, as it was a bit windy.

Converse are an essential for walking around - they were worn so much during our trip!

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit formula again! I wore my blue marle wrap top with my olive skinny jeans this time, and the Burberry tartan scarf for extra warmth. Kept with the classic camel trench and Converse shoes. We spent the morning at Dalkeith Country Park which has a wooden fort that the boys adored, as you can imagine! Lots of running around and playing. After lunch and a bit more of a play we headed over to Butterfly World, which was wonderfully heated and much appreciated after the cold day in the park!

I completely shed all my layers by then, the scarf and trench coat weren't needed inside the heated greenhouse!

Grey Skater Dress Layered 2 Different Ways & Weekday Wear Linkup!

This little grey dress is one I frequently pass over for more 'interesting' pieces in my wardrobe at home, but I packed it as I know it goes with everything! I'm wearing it below with my striped duster but some very different outfits - spring in Scotland brought a couple of warmer days in the middle of all the freezing weather!

What I wore:

grey skater dress converse striped duster royal mile red phone boxes Edinburgh may spring | awayfromblue

striped duster with leggings grey skater dress Louis Vuitton speedy converse spring edinburgh cherry blossom

awayfromtheblue Instagram grey skater dress layered for warm day in greyfriars kirkyard
JacketKmart striped maxi cardigan
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was actually a really warm day! Not warm enough for me to go completely bare-armed (this grey skater dress has short sleeves), but warm enough to not need a scarf or thick jacket. I actually began to wonder if I made a mistake packing just scarves and no statement necklaces in my travel wardrobe! I settled with statement earrings instead, I thought the gold was a nice detail against the plain grey dress.

Casual and comfortable for a day exploring Edinburgh - walking up and down the Royal Mile, buying some souvineers, and then visiting Greyfriar's Bobby and Greyfriar's Kirkyard. It's where JK Rowling got a lot of names for Harry Potter - Tom Riddle is buried there. I got to get some photos under the cherry blossom trees I was so admiring, and felt like a proper blogger after doing so (especially as we had to stand in a line to wait for our turn under the trees!).

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've layered this striped duster under my trench coat! With the grey skater dress being short sleeved, I didn't realise how cold my arms would get even under my winter trench coat! And extra layer was needed so this striped duster was worn again, but with a big cosy scarf, completely lined trench coat and ankle boots!

I wore this out for brunch the morning of the wedding.

Edinburgh: Leather Jacket, Skinny Jeans and Converse Outfit Formula

I kept with my habit of getting dressed following easily repeatable outfit formulas while we were on our trip, it worked well with my travel wardrobe. Below I'm wearing the same bag, shoes, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a scarf, but the different tops and colourful jeans I've worn with each outfit make them look rather different.

What I wore:

TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

We went for a walk along Princess street on a rather wet day, and I hadn't yet found a place to take my outfit photo. I was so happy when we found this spot, with a beautiful view of the castle. Even though it was raining I braved the rain to get some pics before we ran undercover again. Such a wonderful view of Edinburgh castle!

We had lunch in Edinburgh after having a little browse in some stores - and a bit of shopping in Primark (we don't have it in Australia, it's kinda like Kmart!).

Afterwards I layered up a little bit more with my souvenir hoodie under my leather jacket to provide some cover from the rain and we hiked up Arthur Seat. It turned into a really clear day and we got great views, as well as surprising a few people at the summit who couldn't believe that the boys were walking up themselves.

Why I wore it:

While I have a couple more outfits to share from our time in Scotland, this is what I wore for our trip home! The Edinburgh graphic tee I'd picked up in Primark a few days before, along with my comfy olive skinny jeans and Converse.

I wanted one last pic with this wonderful view before we left, although once again I've covered up the castle! 😂 At least you can see it on my tee!

This was a really comfortable outfit for the long trip home. The boys slept a lot more on the planes, with us departing from Heathrow in the evening, and then another evening flight from Singapore to Brisbane. We kinda lost a day in the middle of the travel with the time zone changes! Surprisingly I managed to keep this white tee mostly clean, and the marks it did get on it came out easily in the wash. For just $5 (£2.50) I was impressed with the quality.

Skinny Jeans Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Outfit formulas make dressing so easy, especially for a busy mum! Make a few small changes to your outfit - maybe different accessories, a different colour of jeans, and a different top, for something that feels completely new even if it's entirely inspired by what you wore the day before!
