Striped Tees and Skull Scarves With Green Jeans

Two outfits with very similar formulas that look really different. Green skinny jeans, striped tees, skull scarves and cardigans for spending time outside with the boys.

What I wore:

navy stripe tee green skinny jeans cardigan skull scarf and nylon backpack walking trail outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue | awayfromtheblue

bush trail walking outfit green skinny jens cardigan skull scarf nylon backpack baby bag | awayfromblue Instagram

Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
Tee: Jeanswest striped split hem tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Making the most of the nice weather during the school holidays, and also partly because hubby was still working from home and needed some quiet, I took the kids out to our fave walking trail. Picked because it's a really short and easy walk through the bush with beautiful views. It's under a kilometre too so I knew my injured knee could cope it it. Still wore my daggy but supportive running shoes anyway and I'm glad I did as we went off the trail a lot! We were out for hours finding "new" paths through the bush as the kids explored and I let them pick where we went. (Just a note that I know the track well, I always knew where we were and there are enough pointers around the landscape that a short walk in any direction would reorient you if you did get lost. A lot of the different paths we took were the old trail or accessing the trail from other directions so weren't just rushing off blindly. Be careful not to deviate from the trail unless you can do so safely.) My knee certainly started complaining that evening from all the extra walking!

I added the blue and teal skull scarf for a touch of colour with the navy stripe tee and the green skinny jeans. The scarf did come off quite quickly though as the day warmed up, I even considered taking the cardigan off a few times too. Keeping to the practical outfit I didn't take a bag of my own and just put my things and our water bottles and snacks in the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack I use as a baby bag. Was a really fun morning out!

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (get it second hand)

Why I wore it:

This was another fun day outside! After a quick stop at the Saturday sale at the opshop we headed out to a local park with the boys, until they got hungry for lunch. I used my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB instead of the baby bag as hubby was with us and could carry a backpack.

After the morning at the park, we spent the afternoon at yet another park for a playdate. Which didn't quite go according to plan...but luckily there was an entrepreneurial lady selling ice cream and taking advantage of the weekend crowds so we grabbed some ice cream and sat down on the beach enjoying the last of the sun's rays. As the kids got muddier and muddier running into the water 😂 Baths, a movie and an early dinner made it the perfect end to a hectic day.

I like this navy cardigan with the olive skinny jeans, especially as it matches the navy stripe tee.  I felt the outfit needed another layer as it was quite a windy day, this neutral taupe Alexander McQueen skull scarf was the perfect finishing touch. My knee was really sore by the end of the day though, Converse not as supportive for all the running around!


How You Can Wear It:


A skull scarf is a fun print mix with a stripe tee and jeans combo. You can go brighter like the first outfit with the blue and bold green skinny jeans, or stick with neutrals like the taupe, olive and navy second outfit.

Soft Pull On Shorts and Printed Kimonos With Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Again with two very similar outfit formulas, but different colour schemes! On hot and humid summer days these soft pull on shorts are the best, I'm surprised they haven't been worn as much this summer! It was nice wearing them on these wet but still hot days.

I just wish I could have worn different shoes, but these are the only shoes that make walking and driving bearable with my injured knee!

What I wore:

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I recently wore those olive embroidered shorts with a navy tee, blue tie dye kimono and mustard yellow bag. I liked the colour combination so much I wanted to wear it again. I changed it up a little this time though, having the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel bag instead of the mustard one, and having the yellow kimono instead of a yellow bag. I wore this navy tank instead of the navy tee too, but wore the same turquoise tassel necklace.

Just as I did last time I wore these colours together, I really liked this outfit! It was a hot and humid day but thankfully the rain held off for the school drop off and pick up, and we were able to do all our errands at the closest shopping centre to enjoy the aircon and keep dry!

Why I wore it:

Another oh-so-comfortable and light pair of pull on shorts. These ones are black with a little white square print on them so I thought they would look great with the green duster kimono, with the white in the flower print. I really liked this combination.

Not as colourful as the outfit above, I stuck with a monochrome black outfit with the black tank and printed shorts, and a neutral grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag. I thought that the green floral duster was enough extra interest with the outfit, especially with the print mixing with the shorts.

Again with these New balance shoes which are pretty much a staple here now. Any time I have tried to walk too far without them my injured knee has been in so much pain!

Pull On Shorts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

On a hot and humid day a pair of neutral pull on soft shorts like these olive and black pairs are perfect - no fussing with zips or buttons and incredibly comfortable all day. To mix it up a little you can add a kimono on top for a touch of colour or print mixing.

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

awayfromtheblue Inastagram | SAHM Style spring striped tee with feather embroidered scarf skinny jeans and rebecca minkoff MAM bag
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.


Last worn: burgundy stripe tee, feather embroidered scarf, grey skinny jeans, red suede flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

5 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Grey MAM Bag







What I wore:

awayfromblue Instagram | SAHM style with cobalt shawl and green skinny jeans
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
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 Linkup: Sleeveless Dresses and Long Sleeve Tees


Back to sharing my corporate style for this week's Weekday Wear Link Up! The return to work was a big shift, after 6 weeks of long service leave. I picked some simple fit and flare dresses to wear, layering underneath them with black long sleeve tees to make them work in the colder winter mornings.

What I wore:

DressJeanswest 'Rita' stripe jersey dress (with Jeanswest black long sleeve henley tee underneath)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey


Why I wore it:

It was a big adjustment returning to work after 6 weeks off! I added the scarf not just for warmth in the morning but also because I thought it would be fun to wear a little piece from my trip, and I picked this scarf up in Disneyland Paris.

As well as the scarf, I had my fleece-lined tights and long sleeve tee to layer up and keep me cosy on the colder winter commute. It was a busy day and a lot to get used to again in the office - while I've been away for 18 months before on maternity leave, I found this 6 week gap harder to get used to - I think because of the work my team was on being so different from what it was before I went on leave.

Why I wore it:

I followed the same outfit formula for my next day back in the office - this time layering a printed long sleeve tee under my black sleeveless fit and flare dress. I felt the print was a bit too subtle with the dress though, so decided to add some colour with accessories. These red suede ballet flats always make me smile when I wear them, but they are worn so rarely as I usually prefer neutral shoes. I really need to make more of an effort to wear them! With the flat red beaded necklace adding a little pop of colour, this was such an easy way to accessorise.

Two Ways To Wear a Mustard Tee: Mum Style

Back to Brisbane! Our Europe trip was fun and I enjoyed getting to layer up more, but it was so nice to get back home and enjoy some warmer weather. June is the start of winter in Brisbane, and yet it's nowhere near the levels of cold we experienced in Scottish spring!

I was also glad to get back to my full wardrobe, I liked my travel wardrobe but I missed the options from my full wardrobe - and I was really happy to get to wear this $3 mustard tee I picked up just before we left.

What I wore:

double denim mum style park playdate converse chambray maxi skirt mustard tee | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | mum style park playdate winter double denim mustard tee and micro regan bag
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace:  Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee (recent purchase)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this mustard tee with my chambray maxi skirt - blue and yellow is a combination I love! I like wearing bright tees with this maxi skirt too, such an easy outfit. And a little matchy-matchy with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag, even though you can see in the detail pic that they aren't the exact same shade of mustard.

While we were spending the morning out at the playground with friends I wasn't sure if there would be a breeze on the bay so I went with my denim jacket for a double denim outfit. I'm pleased I took this rather than a cardigan, it was easy to take on and off as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. It did rain a little, but luckily no more than a shower. It was so nice to catch up with everyone after our trip and see what everyone had been up to while we were away.


Last worn: denim jacket, tassel necklace, chambray maxi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the tee on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Returning to Brisbane means returning to routines and for baby boy that means specialist appointments! This is what I wore for one of those visits, this time around I kept the mustard tee as the only colourful piece in the outfit and paired it with a lot of grey and black.

This grey wool maxi cardigan has been a winter fave for a couple of years, it's so cosy! I did consider taking it to Scotland with me but decided my striped duster was more light weight and easier to travel with as it's less bulky. I did miss this cardigan a few times though, so when Brisbane had the winter cold snap it was good to cosy up with this cardi!

I was considering taking this bag over to Europe with me too but wasn't sure if it was the best choice, anticipating a lot of rain. I'm glad I took my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere, but I was looking forward to using this bag again when we got home.

Yellow Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:


A basic v-neck tee in a bright colour is just as easy to wear as one in a neutral shade! Try pairing it with your favourite colour for a bright outfit, or pair it with a mix of neutrals like I have in the second outfit to let it shine and be the star.

Summer Style: Shorts And Kimonos With Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

A pair of soft, loose shorts like the ones I'm wearing below and a nice lightweight kimono along with a simple tank is such a staple summer outfit for me! I find the kimonos provide sun protection, add a little extra colour and print, and are a great way to layer without overheating. These outfits were perfect for our December heat.

One of the kimonos I'm wearing isn't actually a kimono at all though!

What I wore:

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TankFrench Connection feather foil singlet
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

I got this beautiful big scarf as part of my brand rep role for fashion scarf girl. Being a massive scarf (100 cm by 180 cm!) I instantly thought of wearing it as a sarong for the beach. With no beach trips in the immediate future, I decided to double it over and knot the ends together to create a kimono. Not the first time I've worn a scarf as a kimono, it's a good way to change up the way you wear something!

I picked the olive shorts as they kind of met the #DAREcember style challenge prompt of 'in the jungle', being an olive colour. And also because it was a hot day with a lot of running around to do and these are so light to wear. I ran a few errands with the boys, including buying a secret Santa gift for a Christmas dinner with friends.

With the olive shorts and all the colours in the scarf, I thought the neutral Rebecca Minkoff MAM was a good bag to compliment it. Holds a lot of things too!


Last worn: black shimmer tank, tassel necklace, olive embroidered shorts, HavaianasRebecca Minkoff MAM bag. First time I've worn the scarf as it is a recent addition to my wardrobe.

TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This was such a hot day! We planned to put up out Christmas tree in the afternoon (I wore this back at the start of December). There was a new walking trail I wanted to try out first, so we set off early in the morning before the heat got to be too much. Since it was a sunny day, I added the kimono for a little sun protection as I wasn't sure how shaded the track would be. While the walk was short, it was worth it, beautiful views!
While it was a bit warm for closed in shoes, and I kicked them off as soon as I got home, the Converse were good for walking. I was glad the walk was short as it was so hot! Will definitely attempt it again later when it's a little cooler.

It's not the first time I've tried this floral kimono with another print, it's great for print mixing with. With the black shorts, grey kimono and silver tank I felt the outfit needed a little colour - this pretty Ruby Olive necklace that my bestie got me from Christmas was the perfect addition. Met the 'dotty' style challenge prompt nicely for that day too.

Soft Shorts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:


Soft shorts are ideal for a hot summer day, and a colourful kimono is a lovely extra layer that will add further interest to your outfit without over heating you. Neutral accessories like basic tanks and grey bags are good pieces to pair with a loud printed kimono too.

Pink Tanks, Denim Shorts and Printed Scarves With Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

A simple bright tank and denim shorts is an easy summer staple outfit. For something a little different, I like to add some extra colour or print with accessories. A kimono, printed bag, or as I've worn here a printed scarf, is a fun extra touch to your outfit. Both of these scarves are lightweight and perfect for a milder summer day.

What I wore:

TankAsos satin singlet in pink
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Hermes pink clic clac
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This was an absolutely crazy day. Usually on a crazy busy day I'd stick with a comfortable tried and true outfit, but I decided at the last minute to try something a little different and add this pale pink leaf print scarf to the hot pink tank. While it was a hot day, it was a very windy one so the scarf was a great accessory to have. Particularly when the dust picked up.

I had to drive into the city for an appointment and it was an interesting drive - some of the remnants of the dust storm had reached Brisbane and everything was very hazy. Which lead to a lot of questions from the kids in the back seat about why the city was so 'misty'. And a very dirty car -  although I wore this back in November - like everyone else in Brisbane my car stayed covered in red dust for a few weeks!

With the pink on pink, the neutral Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag seemed like a good choice, and it held a few things I needed for the appointment. Perfect for running errands after too.

Why I wore it:

A  very similar outfit formula to the one above, again with a pink tank and denim shorts. I added this fun chicken and egg print scarf for a little extra interest with the otherwise plain outfit. Unlike the day above, this was a much more relaxed day with the boys. We headed out to the library for rhyme time and then stopped at a few stores on the way home to run some errands. Being in aircon for most of the day, the scarf was a good extra layer to stop it feeling too chilly in the shopping centre.

Pink Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A plain tank and denim shorts is such an easy summer staple outfit. If you want to change things up a little between wears, try throwing on a cute scarf for some extra interest to your outfit. If it's a cooler summer day or you're spending a lot of time in the aircon it will make you a little warmer too! Light fabrics like viscose are best for scarves you want to wear in summer.




Hope you have a very happy new year! I will be spending it as I usually do since having kids, exhausted and asleep in bed missing welcoming in the new year! 😂
