Grey V-Neck Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts | #6MonthsWithoutShopping Update 4

Four months completed of #6MonthsWithoutShopping has meant I've had those days where I'm completely uninspired and don't know what to wear. When that happens I try to find something I haven't worn in a while, like these grey tees. To stay away from the blue denim rut, I picked striped maxi skirts to wear with them rather than jeans.

I'm just as surprised as you are that I still haven't bought any clothes or accessories for 4 months! I have been doing something else with those rare moments I get to myself where I'd usually shop, so will be sharing more about that soon. I'm pleased I'm doing so well with the challenge though, 2 months to go!

What I wore:

Oscar's Law Grey v neck tee, black white stripe maxi skirt, yellow micro Regan bag | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold, stripe maxi skirt | Away From The Blue
Sunnies: Ray-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Charlotte teething necklace
TeeOscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold
Nails: OPI Russian Navy

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've worn this tee with a striped maxi skirt, I really like the combination. It was a quiet day when I wore this, just going to Baby Boy's weekly weigh appointment.

I felt that the grey tee and black and white maxi skirt were a bit dull so added some bright accessories with the teething necklace and yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag.

The text on the tee reads "Break the puppy trade and don't buy the lie" and it supports Oscar's Law. If you're a return visitor to the blog you'll have seen the banner on the right and know it's a cause I support. Don't buy puppies from pet shops!

SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold
Nails: OPI Russian Navy

Why I wore it:

I wore this grey tee and striped maxi skirt outfit to spend the day with my sister. Just like the outfit above, I picked exactly the same accessories to add more colour to the outfit. I think grey and yellow is a nice colour combination so the yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag was again the perfect choice.

This grey tee hasn't been worn for a while either! Last time I wore it (over 6 months ago) I wore it with a plain maxi skirt, and the same accesories. The plain grey tee is a great backdrop for a bright necklace or bag. It's one of my favourites too, although I do wear it sparingly and this is only it's 12th wear in the 3 and a half years since I bought it! I want to be sure it will last and not overwear it to pieces.

How You Can Wear It:


Maxi skirts are a great alternative to jeans that allow you to stay away from the blue denim mummy style rult! They provide the same coverage and are just as comfortable to wear when running around after a toddler (or in my case, two!). A striped maxi skirt and grey tee is an easy outfit for those 'I don't know what to wear' days.

Colourful Skinny Jeans and Graphic Tees with Silver Mini MAC

A little while ago I wore my purple jeans and a graphic tee. I liked the combination so much I wore a similar formula again recently. Having a large collection of jeans and a few different coloured pairs means it hasn't feel too repetitive as I wore my jeans a lot over winter.

What I wore:

purple skinny jeans graphic tee oscar's law break the puppy trade | Away From Blue

purple jeans cora JORD wood watch metallic silver mini MAC | Away From The Blue
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Charlotte teething necklace
Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in metallic pink!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this to go to playgroup. While we don't really celebrate Halloween in Australia, at the last minute the mums decided to have a Halloween picnic. I'd missed the email so arrived without food, but had put the boys in some of their superhero onesies for my annual Halloween photo so they were suitably dressed! I like the superhero onesies we have as they wear them outside of Halloween too.
I shared a pic on my instagram stories, it's nice to see the different "costumes" over the years. From Cooper alone to Cooper and Toddler T and now a trio with Baby Boy!

A few of the other kids were all dressed up and it made me wish I'd picked my "bones and skin" band tee to wear instead of this Oscar's Law one. With the bones on it it would have been kind of meeting the theme for the picnic. I do prefer this for feeding in though, and apart from briefly regretting that I wasn't wearing anything even even vaguely costume-like, I really enjoyed wearing this outfit.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, graphic teepurple jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC.

Other ways to wear: graphic tee and a maxi skirt, purple jeans and colourful winter layersRebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC and an ombre dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale in metallic pink!)

Why I wore it:

Bit of a busy day when I wore this, so the simple graphic tee and jeans outfit combo was perfect to help me get out the door on time. I really liked the navy tee with the red jeans, and the silver mini MAC bag goes with everything. Last time I wore this tee it was with purple jeans and I wanted to try something different this time around so the red was a nice change.

This was a comfortable outfit for a morning running errands and trying to organise a few more Christmas gifts. Spent some time with my mum in the afternoon too.

Long Cardis, Prima Denim Skinny Jeans and Scarves

Two more outfits I wore for the Winter Style File style challenge. It's nice that the winter weather has arrived and I can wear my ankle boots again! My prima denim skinny jeans, Chelsea leather ankle boots, tees and cosy cardis make easy SAHM winter outfits!

What I wore:

Oscar's Law graphic tee Jeanswest prima skinny jeans grey cardi SAHM winter style | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | AwayFromTheBlue
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TeeOscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee
JeansJeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'put a scarf on it'. Easy to do with the cold weather making me want to layer!

I thought this was going to be a quiet and relaxing day, but after getting home in the morning and settling down to feed baby boy I checked my phone as I knew I had a doctor's appointment coming up that week. Only to find that my appointment was in 15 minutes! Thankfully the traffic lights were in my favour and we were only 5 minutes late for my appointment, and as the doctor was running a little late I was able to sit there in the waiting room and feed the now very cranky baby boy.


Last worn: grey cardigan, cobalt scarfgraphic tee, Prima skinny jeans, Chelsea boots, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Other ways to wearwool cardigan and a skirt, cobalt scarf and stripesgraphic tee and a maxi skirt, skinny jeans and a kimono, Chelsea boots and a chambray dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and floral print.

TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine (similar in black or grey)
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another cosy cardi, skinny jeans, ankle boots and scarf outfit! Needed something simple as we had to stop by the shops on our way to playgroup that morning and I was in a bit of a rush. While the tan ankle boots don't look too bad I think black ones would have been better.

The style challenge for the day was to wear your favourite coat. I wore this a lot last winter, although this was it's first wearing this year. It's a "coatigan" which is a word that makes me giggle ever since I first heard it. A cosy cardi that's thick and warm enough to be a coat! It came in helpful as it was such a windy day.


Last worn: black and white cardigan, star print scarf, maroon tee, black prima skinny jeans, Chelsea ankle boots (above), Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearblack and white cardigan and a maxi skirt, star print scarf and floral tank, maroon tee and metallic gold jeans, black prima skinny jeans and a printed cami, Chelsea ankle boots and a blue dress, aquamarine mini MAC bag and red jeans.

Jeans, Grey Tees and Good Causes

Always wanting to be comfortable, I ended up wearing my favourite combination of jeans and a grey tee twice in a row. While I am trying to wear everything I have in my wardrobe and not end up in a denim rut..some days just call for jeans!

Here's what I wore to go out with DH and baby T:
Sundried Peruvian tribal print grey tee skinny jeans converse
SunniesRayban new Wayfarers
Scarf: Inca 4 Stripes tee C/O Sundried (use promo code 'INCA' for 25% off!)
JeansSass and Bide strayed misfits skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black


Although I tried this tee on with my maxi skirt as soon as it arrived, for its first proper wearing out of the house I went with a classic and comfortable option - blue jeans!

Sundried sent me this lovely tee to wear, and I also get to pass along a discount code for you - just use promo code 'INCA' at checkout to get 25% off. I like the fun Peruvian-inspired tribal print, and it's great to know that the company is committed to doing good. The tee is made from organic cotton, and the company always works with fair-trade manufacturers. I'm the first to admit that I probably don't know as much about the origins of my wardrobe's contents as I should, which is why it's nice when you come across a company that proudly shares how they are trying to improve the world.


Last worn: Ray-ban, Sass and Bide jeans, Converse. First time I've worn the tee.



Here's what I wore for a casual day at home:
Oscar's law Help Break the puppy trade grey tee skinny jeans
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
TopOscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' super skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white


Another grey tee and denim combo! Did switch out the black Converse for my white ones, to make it a little different ;) Wanted to be comfortable for a quiet day at home - we had family over in the morning and went out in the afternoon for our usual walk.

I support Oscar's Law, and their message to "adopt, don't shop", and their goal of changing the law to prevent pet stores from selling puppies. Such a good cause to get behind. It would have been nice to have our little adopted dog Cooper sitting next to me for the photo, but he was busy catching up on his naps! He's still adjusting to baby T's cries interrupting his naptime schedule. Sometimes he lets out a big sigh when baby starts to cry, to let me know his nap has been cut short. It's very cute.

Last time I wore this tee I was stretching its limits in the third trimester of pregnancy, after getting it in the second trimester! It's so strange looking back at things I've worn during pregnancy and now, and a little odd wearing things I bought during pregnancy without a baby bump for the first time!


Last worn: Ray-ban Wayfarers (see above), Oscar's Law tee, skinny jeans, Converse.

BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH


Busy Saturday! We test drove another car, stopped by the in-laws and did some more baby shopping :) Wanted to be comfortable and cool with the heat. Picked my usual pregnancy default of a maxi skirt, and as I'd worn a grey tank decided to add some colour with accessories. Thought that the bright yellow clutch looked quite nice with the yellow stones in the necklace.


Last worn: Ray-ban wayfarergrey marle tank, black maxi skirt, Havaianas, Balenciaga mangue clutch.



Here's what I wore today:

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine


Maxi skirt again! They really are the easiest pregnancy outfit option - especially on hot days! Added some colour to my outfit with my cute little aquamarine RM mini MAC bag.  Felt this tee was a good one to wear today with puppy farming and the sale of puppies in pet stores being in the news again recently. I don't agree with selling dogs in pet stores at all, 'adopt don't shop' is what I always say! :) We adopted Cooper from our local shelter and we are so grateful to have our furry little pup! You can sign a petition here to ask Westfield to stop pet stores selling animals in their shopping centres if you are interested.

Pink Blush Maternity Dress, Marc Jacobs Fran | Casual Friday Oscar's Law Tee, Striped Maxi Skirt, Bal Velo

Here's what I wore to work on Thursday:
Pink Blush maternity Burgundy Button Sash Maternity Dress Second Trimester

Away from blue marc by marc jacobs carob brown fran bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
NecklaceDogeared 3 Wishes stardust bead necklace layered with Chanel necklace
Dress: burgundy button sash maternity dress C/O Pink Blush Maternity
Shoes: New Look brown cut-out detail shoe
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded black and gold bracelet set
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown


The lovely Olivia from Pink Blush Maternity contacted me a while ago to congratulate me on the baby news, and offer me the chance to try out one of their maternity pieces. I picked this lovely burgundy dress, as it's a maternity and nursing dress so I'm sure to get a lot of wear out of it. It arrived in just a week, really fast shipping from the US to Australia!

It's super soft and stretchy but not clingy so I know I'll be able to wear it lots as the baby bump grows. It certainly has enough room to allow for the growing bump. I like the adjustable tie, and it's really comfortable. With it being a nursing dress as well, I wasn't too sure if it was too low cut for the office so I wore a singlet underneath just to be on the safe side.

Asked my darling friend K for her honest opinion on the dress and she thinks it's beautiful, so definitely a winner! Looking forward to wearing it more over the next few months - my first maternity dress :) Getting a little maternity wardrobe going - 1 dress, 1 top, 2 pencil skirts, 3 pairs of jeans. Been getting some tips from friends about how to make use of my existing wardrobe too which is very helpful.


Last worn: Ray Bans, brown flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the dress as it's a new arrival.



Here's what I wore to work today:
Oscar's Law Break the puppy trade don't buy the lie grey tee stripe maxi bal velo

Balenciga classic coquelicot velo bag worn on arm hermes twilly Kelly en Calèche

JeansJeanswest maternity super skinny jeans in antique blue
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes twilly Kelly en Calèche tied as bracelet
BagBalenciaga Coquelicot Velo


If you've followed me for a while (or if you've looked in my sidebar) you'll know I strongly support Oscar's Law. They recently released a new fundraising tee so I had so snap it up right away! It reads: 'help break the puppy trade and don't buy the lie'. Oscar's Law is about ending the cruel puppy farm cycle by educating people, trying to get changes in the law to better protect puppy farm animals and stop stores from selling puppies.

We adopted Cooper, we support our local shelter and every chance I get I let people know how great rescue dogs are. Even resorting to using my baby belly as a mini billboard by wearing tees like this, haha! Added my Balenciaga velo for a bit of red today for Chinese New Year. Gong xi fa cai!


Last worn: Jeanswest maternity jeans, Hermes twillystudded flats, Balenciaga Velo. First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase.

Just a simple skirt and tank outfit for walking around in the heat. Used a big tote bag as I went shopping in the morning and just wanted to throw all my purchases in one bag. Popped to the stores to get some more wrapping paper, and settled in for the afternoon at home wrapping Christmas presents. However, I actually needed to get some sticky tape too...which I realised halfway through wrapping, oops! I definitely had enough paper though :)

And my mini MACs will be getting a lot of love too, they are the perfect bags for a day off / weekend. So much so, that I got another Rebecca Minkoff bag for my upcoming birthday!

Very similar accessories to the last time I wore this lovely jumper, sorry for the repetition! I think red pairs so nicely with the grey. Casual but warm outfit for spending the evening with the in-laws, having dinner and watching a movie. It was quite chilly so even Cooper has his knitted hoodie on! He had been shivering during the day as quite a bit of him was shaved after his operation. We've been putting his little shirts on when he looks cold.

Didn't need to carry much today, so wore my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie bag as a clutch. This grey Asos tee is perfect comfy weekend wear!

Took my blog photos a little differently on on Saturday - first time using a proper tripod! Usually my photos are a mix of those taken by DH and those taken on self timer with a gorillapod and a tall object I can put the camera on. Now I have a tripod I can take photos anywhere, so I took these photos while on a long walk with Cooper. I just have to get better at finding a shady spot for photos though!

Close up of accessories and bag:

It was Melbourne Cup day here in Australia today. Victorians get the day off for it, and the rest of the country gets a long lunch or a break in the afternoon to watch the Melbourne Cup horse race. There's usually a lot of great race day fashion going on as well, and at work we had competitions for best dressed and best hat.

I thought this dress was a good choice, office appropriate but not too boring for race day with everyone else dressed in their best. Printed dresses are nice like that. Unfortunately, I didn't pick the winning horses in the office sweeps. The masterpiece we made as a group did win the best hat award for the gentleman brave enough to wear our creation though!

Hope you had a lovely cup day and had better luck on the horses! :)

Luxe Pearl Tee, Sass and Bide Jeans, Wittner Heels, Balenciaga Sapphire City

Here's what I wore to work for casual Friday and a team lunch today:
Sunnies: Yellow sunglasses from the Ekka
Bracelets: the usual plus two metal and fabric Indigo Rose Design bracelets, gifted purple Salvatore Ferragamo leather bow bracelet and Oscar's Law bracelet
Tee: Cotton On Luxe pearl tee 
JeansSass and Bide "straight up" jeans
ShoesWittner Mimi heels in mushroom
BagBalenciaga RH city in 2008 Sapphire 

Close up of accessories and bag:

This tee was probably not a good choice today. The back is completely see through so I had to wear a singlet underneath to cover up for the office, and it was a little warm with the extra layer. Maybe on cooler days, or paired with a skirt.

Today I bought some more items from the Cotton On online sale, and broke my Buy Nothing New month pledge to not buy anything new in October. A few ladies at work were putting an order in online together to get free shipping, and I had another look and as most things were $5, bought a few things. Shopping after only 5 days!!! Need to do better and not buy any more this month.


The sunnies were last worn here, jeans here, shoes here and bag here. This is the first time I've worn the top as it's a new purchase.
