Spring Dresses, Cute Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The best thing about spring weather is getting to wear more dresses! I do like to wear most of my wardrobe year round, but it's so good in spring when you can shed the layers and just wear dresses and comfortable sneakers without tights.

The colourful scarves were really just for decoration and didn't need to keep me warm, on two beautiful spring days where we made the most of the sunshine at the park.

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This grey skater dress is a little worn piece in my wardrobe. In the past I've wondered why as it's always a nice piece to wear. Last worn over a year ago! Wearing it again reminded me I really should enjoy it more often, and not pass it over for more 'interesting' printed dresses.

They grey dress was a beautiful backdrop for the bold red poppy print scarf and mini Avery tote bag. Also was a nice length for walking around and playing at the playground with the boys. Being knee length I found it an okay length, even if I was a little more considerate with exactly how I crouched down to toddler level!

First time I've walked so far in these shoes - and I was really pleased they were so comfortable all day. There was a little rubbing right before we got home but I think that was because my sock slipped down. We decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and walk to a park a couple of Ks away, a little further than our usual park. The boys loved it though, it was such a nice day.

Rebecca Minkoff Vs Balenciaga:



Showing you more of my Rebecca Minkoff and Balenciaga collection side by side and talking about the similarities and differences of each. Since they are the two brands most common in my handbag collection, I also share my favourite and why!

Why I wore it:

Another lovely spring day, another morning at the park! Took the boys on a quick errand in the morning and then we walked to our local park to enjoy the sunshine. I love the spring days where it's warm enough to get out and get some fresh air but it's not so hot you're suffering!

I really liked the orange scarf with the Aztec print on this dress. The print wasn't as orange as I thought it would be when I was planning this outfit, but I felt the crinkles on the scarf still worked nicely with the lines in the print. I did consider adding a denim jacket to this as it was a little breezy in the morning, but I actually couldn't find it.  I had slipped off the hanger in my wardrobe, I found it later that evening. While there were a few moments during the day I felt a bit of a chill, with all of the walking and running around I was pretty warm and glad I hadn't found the jacket in time.

Picked my little silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC to wear with this outfit, as it felt quite busy with the bright scarf and printed dress. I loved how well it worked, it's one of those neutral bags that goes with everything. Most importantly, it slips inside the baby bag which I still carry even on trips to the park as who knows when the boys will find a puddle and I'll need that extra change of clothes!

Basic Tees, Prints, Black Jeans and Metallic Flats with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The one benefit to Brisbane's lovely spring weather suddenly being replaced with a wet and cold spring week is that I got to continue to layer for a little longer. I took the opportunity to try some bolder outfits, with a little print mixing in the first outfit and some bright colours in the second outfit. Despite the very different resulting outfits, the formula was the same with basic tees, black jeans and metallic ballet flats.

What I wore:

print mixing skinny jeans and red tee outfit: skull scarf and stripes | awayfromblue

Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan

TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I wanted to wear this Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag again, I had worn it over the warmer weekend and really liked it so decided to wear it on this day too. Even though the shades of red with the plain tee, skull scarf and Avery bag are all different, I liked how well they worked together with the black.

This wasn't the outfit I had planned! Hubby and I had another kid-free morning with an appointment and then a lunch date. I'd picked out a dress to wear but the cold and rainy morning made me change my mind and go for a staple skinny jeans outfit. It was a good excuse to give this striped duster a wear too, a bit too cold for winter wear but perfect for spring.

We had a productive morning, but I did regret the striped duster outfit choice when we headed to the bay for lunch - it was really cold and windy, not perfect stroll along the beach weather as we'd hoped. Lunch was good though, and I did really like the print mix of the skull scarf and stripes together. I love pairing my skull print scarves with stripes for a bit of print mixing.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

After being too cold on the windy day above, I picked a cosier topper for this outfit, my black belted cardigan. It's the belt you can see hanging down in the insta photo, in case you were wondering! It was much warmer for a busy but cold day, with daycare for the boys, working from home, and then my son's specialist appointment in the afternoon.

You might recall I mentioned when I bought this tee that it's actually a dark green! It really does look grey in particular lights, and looks so grey here with the black cardigan and printed jeans.

I picked the bright accessories as I remembered this old outfit with the orange scarf, olive tee and aquamarine bag. I thought I could recreate it with this orange crinkle scarf. I really like the aqua and orange combo, and it really pops with the monochromatic outfit. I love how the chevrons on the jeans tie in with the crinkle texture on the scarf - although that wasn't planned, a happy coincidence I noticed when I reviewed the photos!

Basic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A basic block colour tee is a wardrobe staple and so easy to dress up or down. With a plain tee, you can add interest to your outfits in other ways. It makes print mixing easy as the plain tee goes with any other prints you want to wear. Of course if you aren't a fan of print mixing, you can use a neutral basic tee as the base of an outfit you add colourful accessories too, as I've done with the scarf and bag in the second outfit.

Vloggers Catch Up Video: Striped Tees and Skinny Jeans With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Exciting post today, sharing my usual two outfits and my first video collaboration with a brand! I mentioned before I got talking to a brand I love at the bloggers brunch and so I featured them in a video when I went to catch up with some other vlogging mums. Unfortunately, I didn't love my outfits as much as I loved catching up with my YouTube friends, I ended up regretting my outfit choices.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag on arm with black | awayfromtheblue

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Wasn't sure what kind of day it would be, so I took the opportunity to wear all the layers! The boys and I headed to New Farm park for an Australian Vlogging Mums catch-up. We were going to be sitting by the water and it was a cold morning so cosy pieces seemed like a great idea. By the time we reached the park it was much warmer. I left the scarf in the car, and the cardigan came off and on through the morning, spending most of the time just in jeans and a tee.

I thought this little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag was a cute touch with the red logo on the tee, and it also fits nicely inside the baby bag to help reduce the number of bags I had to carry on the way back to the car.

I did regret wearing the glitter shoes. They were comfortable and I thought they'd be fun, but they did get a little dirty. Not as dirty as the new shoes I put on the boys before they got up to their mischief though! You can see what I mean in the video. Bad shoe choices for the whole family there!


Last worn: black cardigan, Louis Vuitton shawl, striped tee, Prima skinny jeans, glitter shoes, Rebecca Minkoff micro avery bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum

Why I wore it:

This day was not as fun as the one above! Similar outfit formula though, again with a striped tee, skinny jeans and those fun glittery shoes. I added the purple cardigan and blue scarf for some extra colour with all of the neutrals. Like the first outfit, I added a cute and colourful Rebecca Minkoff bag. This time my plum mini MAB tote.

The plan was for a relaxing Saturday with a swim lessons and grocery shopping, but plans quickly changed when the little one was unwell. Took him to the doctors where I again regretted my outfit choice.

Sick kids are messy, and I was wearing a white tee...which wasn't quite as white by the time the doctor called us through!

It was a nice outfit, just a bad day! Thankfully the doctor could give us some medicine to help.

Striped Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Striped tees are a wardrobe staple! Paired with neutral skinny jeans, it's easy classic mum style. For extra interest and warmth you can add a colourful scarf as well as a fun bright handbag. Having a neutral outfit makes adding colourful pieces on top simpler as you don't have to worry about colours clashing.
