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:

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.

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!

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.

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.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Tanks Worn 2 Ways: In The Office, Casually

A little bit of print mixing for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup! Showing you two different ways to wear striped tanks, in the office and casually, and doing a little print mixing by having spotty accessories with the stripes in each outfit too!

What I wore:

olive jeans adn Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Starting to realise you can't see my earrings with my new shorter haircut! 😂 I was so thrilled to wear jeans for once! I wore these a couple weeks ago, excited about the weather cooling down. Green is one of the colours I find tricky to wear and as a result these olive jeans are frequently worn with black - this striped tank seemed like an obvious choice. Added the white kimono as I wasn't sure which of my printed ones would look best with this and wanted to keep it simple!

Couldn't resist adding a little bit of leopard print to this outfit with the printed shoes too - I felt they worked nicely with the striped tank as they are the same colour scheme.

Hubby and I had an appointment to attend that unfortunately was in the middle of the day. We decided to make the most of it and take the day off. It was nice to have some quiet time at home to get caught up with a few must do tasks which are easier without the boys around!

BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I felt this outfit was lacking a little something - this cute blue polka dot scarf that I got as a Christmas present from my mum was the perfect finishing piece to add to the striped tank and pencil skirt and blazer outfit. It was a nice bit of print mixing and extra touch of colour with the grey.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag added a little more colour too! I like how the magenta pops with the grey.

Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic that you can easily dress up or down. Stripes are so fun to print mix with too! Why not try introducing a small accessory with a different print for a subtle take on pattern mixing in your outfit.

Bright Tanks Soft Shorts With Colourful Bags: Easy Summer SAHM Style

On a hot day, soft shorts like these are the best! Paired with simple tanks and colourful bag, it's easy mum style for summer.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold with olive shorts | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Top: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank (new purchase)
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

First wearing of my newly thrifted tank! I bought quite a few things over January and February! This was just $1 though so I had to have it. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it in the opshop and as I tried it on I realised it looked familiar. Ironing it after washing it, I thought more and I'm sure that I know someone with this exact top - not sure if it's a blogger or a friend! I messaged a few people I thought it might be but I haven't figured it out yet. It will be so funny when I figure out who has it. It's a Target one though so I might have just remembered walking past someone wearing it!

Didn't bump into anyone much on this day I wore it though - it was one of those super humid days, lots of heavy rain (I took my pics super quick then rushed inside to stay dry!) but still so hot. I did the daycare drop off and then worked from home for the day - briefly stepping out at lunch time to pick up a parcel at the post office I'd been waiting for since December!

With all the colours in the tank the neutral olive shorts seemed like the best choice, and they are so comfortable on a hot and humid day too. While the yellow in the tank isn't mustard, I thought this mustard micro Regan bag would make a great pairing with it, and I do love wearing this bag with these shorts.


Last worn: silver trinity necklace, olive embroidered shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the tank as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearolive embroidered shorts and grey knit, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag and little black dress.



My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in mid turquoise
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another simple tank and soft shorts combo - although this time it's a plain tank and printed shorts, the reverse of the first outfit. When I saw these shorts I debated getting them as I do have another pair of blue soft printed shorts, with a waist tie. But I figured as I'd worn those other ones more than 30 times these would also be a great addition to my wardrobe. And I have that post of 30 ways to wear blue printed shorts to give me outfit ideas!

Really liked how this came together, especially with the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. I wanted to wear my new bag but wasn't entirely sure how it would work with the different shades of blue and the print on the shorts. While it doesn't match with anything I'm glad I gave this a go as I really liked the pop of colour it added!

We had a quiet day, taking advantage of the slightly cooler morning to get in some time at the park with the boys before running a few errands and opshoping when the day got warmer. We actually managed to find what I was looking for in the opshop which so rarely happens! Was definitely a good thrifting day.

Soft Shorts, Tees And Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan and Mini MAC Bags

You know I love my bright handbags, and I have quite a few colourful Rebecca Minkoff bags. Making the most of the lovely summer weather here in Brisbane at the start of January, I headed to some different parks with the boys, and accessorised the plain shorts and tee outfits with some fun bags.

What I wore:

Necklace: gifted Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This is one of those outfits that looks nice in the photos but really wasn't good to wear. I'd planned it the night before, while in the aircon, and decided that this plain black tee would look so good with the printed black shorts. They do look nice together, and the pink accessories were such a fun touch with all of the black - the hot pink mini MAC bag really pops against the neutral outfit.

However monochrome black was not such a good choice for a hot summer day on one of the local walking trails! Especially as I forgot my water bottle.

If I'd been inside for more of the day, or wore this on a cooler day or on a shadier trail, I would have liked it more than I did.


Last worn: black printed shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC. First time I've worn the tee as I recently got it from my sister's wardrobe, and the necklace was a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearblack printed shorts and kimono, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC and printed dresses.

TeeJeanswest striped split hem tee

ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted rose gold pink and pearl bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This  outfit was much better suited for a day out in the sun! The tee is another new-to-me one from my sister's wardrobe. It's not the first time I've won these olive embroidered shorts with stripes, I really like the combo so when I got this navy stripe tee I knew I wanted to try it with the shorts right away.

The mustard micro Regan bag is another frequently worn option with the olive shorts too, I really like mustard and olive together.

Even with the mustard bag and olive shorts, I added another colour with the necklace and bracelets - I picked some of my new rose gold accessories. I have this Kmart necklace in navy and gold and I am thrilled to have the pink and gold version now too! I thought it matched matched my pink, rose gold and pearl bracelet stack well, especially with the addition of the rose gold sandals. The shiny accessories were a bit more dressed up than a playdate at the park called for, but it was a cute touch of sparkle for the final day of the year.


Last worn: olive embroidered shorts, rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the necklace and bracelet stack as they are recent gifts, and the tee is from my sister's wardrobe.

Other ways to wearolive embroidered shorts and grey knits, rose gold sandals and maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and skinny jeans.



Soft Shorts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is a staple summer outfit. On hot days, soft lightweight shorts like these are a good option for dealing with the heat. A practical outfit for running around a playground with the kids too! Maybe just don't pair a black tee with them if you're out in the sun!

Maxi Dresses For Different Events: Wedding and Kids Birthday Party

I love maxi dresses, for everyday wear and for special events. They never look over or under dressed for any occasion! Wearing two pretty blue ones below, dressed up for a formal event and dressed down for a casual kid's birthday party.

What I wore:

pastel grecian maxi dress with vintage Chanel bag and louis vuitton monogram shawl for waterfront wedding | awayfromblue

 Chanel vintage quilted 'Diana' lambskin flap for a wedding | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram wedding guest maxi dress outfit blue pastel grecian dress with cobalt louis vuitton shawl vintage chanel bag

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
DressJeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell (C/O)
Shoes: NineWest "Quicken" wedges in natural
Bracelets: the usual plus silver charm bracelet
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

I had been looking forward to this day for so long! One of my oldest friends was getting married and we were so thrilled to celebrate with the couple. While his wife is someone I've only gotten to know over the past few years, I met him all the way back in uni so hubby and I are good friends with him. (I met my hubby in uni too, a couple years later!).

It was literally the only sunny day in over a week of rain and storms, they couldn't have had a better day. The sun came out for the ceremony (overlooking the beautiful water) and when the breeze started to pick up and get cooler in the evening I had my Louis Vuitton shawl in my bag. It's the first time I've worn this shawl as an actual shawl and not just as a scarf!

The bag was another accessory I love - a vintage Chanel flap I don't get to wear often, but treasure the times I do!

The shoes I was not too happy with. You might have seen on my Insta stories that taking a few steps out the door to leave resulted in the sole of one of my shoes flying off! So I ran back inside and superglued it together, hoping it would hold out for the party, and trying to ignore the fact that I put it on a little crooked....thankfully, it held together well. The other shoe on the other hand decided to fall to pieces in the same way, as I walked through the middle of the tables at this small and intimate wedding. I've had them for a few years, and I got them pre blog, but in the 6 years I've been blogging this is their 7th wear so it's not like I've overly worn them! I suspect the heat / humidity has got to the glue holding them together while they've spent most of their life stored in a box.

On the plus side, the wedding was wonderful, the ceremony so moving, the food delicious, the speeches both hilarious and heartwarming, and the dancing wonderful. Even if it was a bit of a challenge dancing with lopsided shoes after consuming a couple of glasses of champagne! 😂 I ended up copying the mother of the groom and going shoe-less in the end.


Last worn: Louis Vuitton shawl, pink tassel earrings, grecian maxi dress, nude wedges, vintage Chanel flap.

Other ways to wearLouis Vuitton shawl woth jeans and tee, grecian maxi dress for birthday party, nude wedges and lace dress, vintage Chanel flap for Christmas day.

DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

The weekend before the wedding was a bit cold and wet, so I ended up layering my maxi dress up a little more, with the mustard scarf, denim jacket and ankle boots. Had a bit of a busy day, with swim lessons in the morning, followed by a birthday party for one of little T's friends, then a trip down the coast to spend time with my parents.

The ankle boots were a perfect choice for the wet weather and my layers kept me nice and cosy. I thought this maxi dress would be perfect as I've never been to a birthday party at McDonalds before and wasn't sure what to wear! It was interesting seeing what the other mums were wearing, so many different outfits - and I saw a few similar outfits to other things I was thinking of wearing! - but of course the best dressed was the birthday girl.

It was a lot of fun, getting to chat to the parents of some of the kids I have only heard about from the boys stories after daycare. It was also very noisy, as the kids had a great time running around and playing together.

Maxi Dresses Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress is a wardrobe staple as you can really make it work for you, for any event or season! You can dress it up with luxe accessories or down with a denim jacket, and you can easily add an extra layer if it gets chilly.




No shopping haul this month! I only spent $2 on this Kmart dress. Spent a lot of money finishing my Christmas shopping though!

Dresses, Ankle Boots, Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Bags For Spring

While the weather is warming up as summer is arriving soon here in Brisbane, I took advantage of a few cooler days to wear a much loved spring outfit formula: dresses and ankle boots. I added some cute scarves for an extra touch of colour too!

What I wore:

Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn mustard yellow with this dress and definitely won't be the last - I really like the combination! A nice and simple outfit with the black printed dress, ankle boots and matching mustard accessories for a quiet day with the boys. We ran a few errands. I picked up my Christmas dress at Jeanswest (as the first store I went to didn't have my size!) and grabbed some groceries after spending some time at the library. Nice relaxing day.

As we weren't in a rush to be anywhere that morning and could set our own pace for the day, I decided to try snap another twirl pic with this dress. It twirls so beautifully, it's just not easy to capture on camera! I was pleased with the shot I got.

ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Making use of the easy, comfortable outfit formula and wearing a dress and ankle boots again for another quiet day with the boys. I really treasure the SAHM days I get when working part time. On this day, despite the warm sunny weather, we spent the day inside at the library for music time, and then running a couple of errands before heading home. I did kinda wish we'd spent the day outside instead when the rain set it in for the rest of the week, and we were forced to stay indoors, ha!


I was sure that I'd worn this bird print scarf and the chambray dress together before, I was quite surprised to find that I hadn't when I searched through the blog. With the blue dress and scarf together and neutral tan ankle boots, I thought the red striped mini MAC bag waas a cute touch of colour. And a little bit of print mixing.

How You Can Wear It:

A simple dress and ankle boots is a quick and easy spring outfit formula, perfect for a busy mum. For a little extra interest to your outfit, you can add a colourful or printed scarf. It helps keep you cosy for the cooler mornings and evenings, and can easily be taken off when the days warm up.
