Matching Bags and Scarves With Grey Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts For Spring

Enjoying wearing some of my recnt(ish!) purchases to create some casual and comfortable spring outfits. I love these striped maxi skirts I thrifted back in August and the scarves and bags add the perfect pop of colour for spring.

You might know from reading my blog I love my bright handbags, and I have shared various ways to match them to my outfits before (matching to shoes, matching tees, matching necklaces, etc). Today I'm keeping it simple and matching the accessories together by picking scarves and bags that are similar shades.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard (new purchase)
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I was hopeful that this mustard crinkle scarf would pair nicely with my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and was so pleased to see they look great together! While not the exact same shade I think they compliment each other nicely, and were a fun combo with the neutral outfit. As it was a cooler morning, I added the denim jacket to the slouchy grey tee and vertical striped maxi skirt. We had church in the morning too, which is often a little colder with the aircon so the denim jacket was a good choice. Even if I did take it off after church in the heat of the day.

Even though the bag has silver hardware, I thought the gold mouse flats went nicely with the mustard accessories - and they are such fun shoes to wear!


Last worn: denim jacket, mustard crinkle scarf, grey tunic, gold mouse flats, mustard micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the vertical striped maxi skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another simple grey tee and striped maxi skirt with some colourful accessories! This beautiful diamond print scarf has so many colours in it, but I knew I wanted to try wearing it with the equally bright neon pink mini MAC bag. I really liked the two pieces together, and they were the perfect touch with the outfit. The pinstripe maxi skirt always seems so grey in pics, even though it's a fine navy pinstripe. This paired with the darker grey v-neck tee made it a bit monochrome, so the pink was fun to break up the grey a bit!

Simple and colourful outfit for a day with the boys - we spent some time at the playground, library, and a quick visit to our old house, so a pretty busy day.


Last worn: grey tee, black ballet flats, neon pink mini MAC bag. First time I've worn the diamond print scarf and maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple, and looks great with a striped maxi skirt. To add some colour to the neutrals, you can go for bright and bold scarves, with matching bags to make your outfit even more colourful. Perfect for spring.

Floral Swing Dresses With Mustard Bags and Ankle Boots

With the warmer spring like weather near the end of winter, I took the opportunity to wear some of my pretty floral dresses. Florals? For spring? ... Groundbreaking. 😂

I did layer them up just a little with ankle boots and denim jackets for the colder winter mornings and evenings too, as it was August (the end of winter in Brisbane) when I wore these.


What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH

Why I wore it:

After a busy day, I quickly got changed into something a little more fun for drinks with some other Brisbane Instagrammers. I'll take any excuse to wear this pretty mustard floral swing dress, it works so well for ankle boots and was perfect for dinner and drinks by the river. I thought that the mustard Balenciaga envelope clutch would be a nice bit of matchy-matchy for it too, although I did regret that decision later in the night! I managed to get my deliciously greasy burger all over the delicate Balenciaga leather, and despite borrowing a baby wipe from an amused and confused dad we saw nearby, the grease didn't come off. I tried cleaning it when I got home later that night, and the day after, but it's going to permanently have a mark :(

Definitely will be a fun story to tell every time I use this clutch though. I am a little upset as the clutch was pristine and so well cared for, and so far out of my budget now, but no bag stays pristine forever!


Last worn: tassel earrings, denim jacket, navy and gold bead necklace, mustard floral dress, Acne Pistol boots, Balenciaga envelope clutch.

Why I wore it:


Another floral dress with an adorable mustard bag. Luckily, I managed to keep this mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag clean, even after the boys had a chocolate cookie at church and when I had our latest fluffy family member join me for photos! She is very interested in my photo taking, unlike our Shih Tzu Cooper who is over it after watching me snap pics for years 😂

While I haven't worn this navy floral swing dress with the denim biker jacket and tan ankle boots before, I have worn it with other denim jackets and ankle boots in my wardrobe and I really like this combination! The mustard bag was a fun pop of colour with the navy and this was an easy outfit for church.

Floral Swing Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral swing dress might be a bit predictable for spring, but it's such a cute outfit! On a colder day or night a denim jacket and ankle boots can help keep you warmer, and this works in autumn too. Adding a fun bright bag like these mustard yellow ones to your floral dress is a great idea to add even more spring-like colour.

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!

Other ways to wearprinted leather jacket worn 30 ways, black maxi skirt and foil tee, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and shorts.

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:

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!

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:







What I wore:

navy printed shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | away from the blue

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:


monochrome black outfit with Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | monochrome black tee and printed shorts summer outfit with Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC
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.

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!
