Striped Tops, Skinny Jeans, Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff MAB

A brief period of warmer weather near the end of winter last month had me ditching some of the layers and going without a jacket or cardigan. Still with longer sleeves though! These striped 3/4 length sleeve tops were overdue a wear.

A stripes and denim outfit combination is always a winner, and great for stay at home mum days.

What I wore:

burgundy striped tee with grey skinny jeans, feather embroidered scarf, RM MAM bag and red suede flats | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey | awayfromtheblue

Scarf: grey and gold embroidered feather scarf
DressAtmos&Here 3/4 sleeve stripe tee in berry white
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs suede flats in red
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This top has been badly overlooked all winter - it's a favourite for me, it's nice and thick and so cosy on the cooler days. I decided to let the top be the star and keep everything else neutral, with the grey skinny jeans, grey Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag and my fun grey feather embroidered scarf.

I couldn't decide what shoes to wear with this until I remembered my little red suede ballet flats. I love these shoes but so rarely wear them as I tend to go for neutral shoes instead. Even though the red of the shoes is a different shade from the burgundy stripes on the tee, I thought it was a fun combination and really enjoyed wearing this! Simple outfit for a day with the boys, running a few errands and visiting the library and playground.

5 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Grey MAM Bag

TopJeanswest 'Marina' stripe henley
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy morning! Swimming lessons, attending the Lion King Ooshies swap day and then an appointment, all before lunch, phew! Wanted something simple so went with this classic striped Henley and my green skinny jeans. I like navy with these green jeans, and the stripes go so well with it. Added in a bolder bright blue with the cosy cobalt Louis Vuitton shawl too, which helped keep me warm in the cooler morning before the temperatures heated up.

With the bright scarf and jeans together, I went with a neutral bag and shoes. These silver ballet flats go with everything and the Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag in grey is a wardrobe staple, which was big enough to fit my things in, some things for the boys and of course our Lion King toys for the swap day.

The swap day was a little hectic, but I thought it would be fun for the boys to go to swap some of the extra toys they had after they completed their collection. They swapped with others to pick some new toys for them to play with and to let the others complete their collections. I was proud of how they behaved and shared and swapped. They came home and immediately started playing 'swap day' with the toys they had so I know they enjoyed the experience!

Striped 3/4 Length Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped top with longer sleeves is great for days when you don't need or want an extra jacket or cardigan over the top. You can keep it simple and wear a bright striped top with neutral jeans, or add more colour with some bright jeans instead. Either way, you can't go wrong with a classic stripes and jeans combo!

Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed Sheath Dresses and Colourful Cardigans

For this weeks Weekday Wear link up I'm wearing my favourite printed sheath dresses with some cosy cardigans to make some colourful corporate style outfits.

What I wore:

colourful spring corporate style office outfit ankle boots orange sheath dress mustard cardigan neverfull bag | awayfromblue

orange printed sheath dress with louis vuitton neverfull mm tote | awayfromtheblue


awayfromtheblue Instagram | orange printed sheath dress with mustard yellow cardigan colourful office outfit
Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressFrench Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress in white/geranium rose
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

It was such a warm day when I wore this - a little teaser of the upcoming summer heat before the Ekka winds set in the next day and cooled things in Brisbane right down back to winter temps! I went out during my lunch break at work to run a few errands and actually regretted the cardigan! My plan had been to belt it in place but I knew I'd probably have to take it off at some point with the summer temps, so left it unbelted so I could do so.

You've seen me wear yellow with this dress before - often in smaller doses like a yellow necklace or scarf. I thought I'd be a bit bolder this time and pair the orange printed sheath dress with the mustard yellow cardigan. I really liked this outfit, perfect for a busy day at work and a little time outside in the sunshine at lunch time. The ankle boots kept my bare legs cosy on the cooler morning, it quickly warmed up anyway.

With the summery citrus toned outfit, the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag seemed like the perfect choice!

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This outfit was worn on a more winter like day, so followed the same outfit formula as the first, but with a few more layers. I really like blue and purple together so I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this purple cardigan with the blue paisley print sheath dress before! It's such a great combination.

I needed to be just a little bit warmer though, so added my cosy fleece-lined tights, as well as my purple Marc Jacobs blanket scarf. This scarf is such a stunning piece, and even though it has a print it's subtle enough that it looks nice worn with the paisley dress. It's not an exact match to the cardigan, but I did like the two different purple shades together. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull adds more print to the outfit, but I see this bag as a neutral and will wear it with any print!

With all the colour and print, a classic black pair of ballet flats seemed like the best shoe option. Super comfortable too!

How You Can Wear It:

A fun and colourful printed sheath dress is a great option for your work wardrobe. You can play it safe and stick with neutral layers to accompany the bold print and let the dress make a statement on it's own, or you can get even more colourful by adding bright layers like scarves and cardigans that will compliment the colours in the print of your dress.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with Louis Vuitton neverfull for themepark mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | chambray skirt graphic tee and leather jacket winter mum style
JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.

Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.

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:

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.

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.

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

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!
