Matching Bright Bags to Skinny Jeans With Tees and Kimonos

Taking advantage of the spring weather to wear two blue kimonos. Wearing two different brightly coloured jeans that match the bags I chose to wear too. I like being a little matchy-matchy when wearing a colourful bag. I've shared matching bags to shoesscarves and printed tees before too.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a warm spring day that quickly turned into a very hot day! I regretted picking this kimono a little, it's  a cosy cocoon style which was a bit too warm by the time we got halfway around the bike trail the boys were scooting and biking around.

I regretted the white tee choice too when we did some baking later in the afternoon. Luckily the cocoa powder stains came out in the wash!

I did like the colour combo in this outfit though, navy and green look so nice together and the little green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag complimented the green jeans nicely.


Last worn: floral kimono, flat beaded necklace, white tee, green skinny jeans, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag.

Why I wore it:

Sticking with the same simple outfit formula I wore above with a blue kimono, v-neck tee and bright skinny jeans. Went with red ones and picked my little red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag as well. Just like the bag and jeans above, the shades don't match exactly but do compliment each other nicely.

Wore this on a day it was predicted to rain so we headed out to an indoor play place for the kids. It didn't rain but the boys did have a lot of fun, especially when the special guest arrived. Queen Elsa was very lovely and "remembered" them from Disneyland which made their day! Something a bit different for them and they really enjoyed it.

How You Can Wear It:

A brightly coloured bag can easily be matched to something else in your outfit, like these bright skinny jeans. Wearing them with other neutral pieces like the tees or pairing with your favourite colour like these blue kimonos makes for a simple colourful outfit.

Slouchy Tees, Printed Maxi Skirts and Statement Necklaces With Red Rebecca Minkoff Micro Avery Tote

I love a good slouchy tee and I love a maxi skirt – paired together it makes a comfortable and practical outfit for days with the kids. To dress up these outfits a little I wore statement necklaces with them, and my trusty little red Rebecca Minkoff micro avery bag.


What I wore:

red slouchy tee with vertical stripe maxi skirt red rebecca minkoff micro avery bag

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag with vertical stripe maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | red slouchy tee with vertical stripe maxi skirt statement necklace
Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace
TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

A busy day when I wore this! I did a little opshopping in the morning to pick up a few more necklace options trying to find the perfect way to accessorise my dress for an event, and we had to stop by the library and grocery store.

The afternoon was more relaxed, a leisurely stroll / bike / scoot around our local park after a last minute rush to the bank to pickup a copy of a letter that never arrived . This comfortable outfit was just what I needed. I loved this statement necklace against the red slouchy tee, I’ve worn it with a red tee before and liked it then too. The vertical striped maxi skirt has pockets too which is so practical. And the gold mouse flats matched the gold hardware on the little Rebecca Minkoff micro avery bag nicely.

Last worn: red slouchy tee, statement necklace, vertical stripe maxi skirt, gold mouse flats, micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearred slouchy tee and denim shorts, vertical stripe maxi skirt and denim jacket, gold mouse flats and pleated skirt, micro Avery bag and floral dress.

Perfect for pregnancygold mouse flats in third trimester.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Avery










What I wore:

navy oversized tee and red boho printed maxi skirt mum style little red bag | away from blue

bracelet stack and printed maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue

Awayfromblue Instagram | navy and red printed maxi skirt casual mum style outfit spring
Necklace: silk beaded baby-friendly necklace
Tee: thrifted Emerson navy slouchy tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I’ve worn this beautiful red thrifted maxi skirt with a blue tee! I like blue and red together so this skirt is worn with blue a lot, and the $3 thrifted skirt with the tee that works out to about 63 cents makes for a very affordable outfit! I got the tee in a bag of clothes in the “fill a bag for $5” sale which is why it works out so cheaply! I was dressing for comfort as we headed out to the airport early in the morning to pick someone up, and then lunch and shopping with my sister later.

I picked this silk beaded necklace to use as distraction for the boys while we waited at the airport – but thankfully we didn’t have to wait wrong. The extra pearl bracelets were another distraction tool – it’s so normal for my boys to play with my accessories when I pick them up for cuddles – part of the reason I rarely wear delicate or sharp statement necklaces on my SAHM days, preferring them for office days!

Last worn: navy oversized tee, silk beaded necklace, red printed maxi skirt, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote (above).

Other ways to wearnavy oversized tee and printed scarf, red printed maxi skirt and leather jacket, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote and pencil skirt.




Slouchy Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

There's a fashion "rule" that you shouldn't pair two voluminous pieces, like a slouchy oversized tee and a billowy maxi skirt together. But I say you should wear what makes you comfortable, and a maxi skirt and tee is such a comfy outfit! Perfect easy outfit for a mum too, no worrying about the skirt being too short as you run around with the kids!

Weekday Wear Linkup: Two Ways To Wear Kmart Teal Floral Boho Midi Dress

Two ways to wear this beautiful Kmart teal floral print midi dress I picked up on clearance for just $12! A little bit different for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, only one of these outfits was worn during the week, the other on the weekend. Thought it would be interesting to show the different ways I've styled this dress for a weekday in the office and for a kid's birthday party on the weekend.

What I wore:

kmart teal floral midi dress boho for the office with black jersey blazer flats tote bag | awayfrombue

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram spring office outfit kmart teal floral midi dress black blazer brisbane botanic gardens
Earrings: Kmart teal tassel earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress (new purchase)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I bought this dress on impulse, but when I got it home I thought it may work for the office with the modest length and neckline. It's a little more boho than I'd usually wear to work, but I think the black blazer looked perfect with it and I got so many compliments on this in the office! I was so happy to share it was only $12 at Kmart too, haha!

To keep things simple I went with my trusty black ballet flats to wear with the black jersey blazer. These flats have been worn over 100 times and are still going strong!

To try formalise the dress a little more I added this big Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag, it's great for the office with the structured shape. I liked the navy with the teal dress too!


Last worn: black jersey blazer, teal earringsblack ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the dress on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

ICYMI: What I Bought Last Month







What I wore:

kmart teal floral midi dress for backyard party with sunhat and gold sandals | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag with teal floral midi dress | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart teal floral print midi dress birthday party outfit with little red Rebecca Minkoff bag sunhat
Hat: Big W bow detail sunhat
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

A very different way to wear this dress! I actually wore this just a few days after the outfit above. I was that eager to wear the dress again, with a 5th birthday party to attend I knew it would be perfect. I wanted the longer sleeves for sun coverage, and the longer length was great for sitting on the floor with the kids as they enjoyed the party food. I did feel that the sunhat and the dress may have been a little too dressy for a backyard birthday party but it was the sunhat or borrowing one of my husband's baseball caps and the sunhat looked a lot better!

As it was a hot day I went with simple gold sandals, and then added a little extra colour to the teal outfit with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag. It was such a well-organised party, the boys and I had a great time. I was so glad I'd worn the hat too, we ended up sitting in the sun and making the most of the beautiful day before the storm blew in.


Last worn: sun hat, Kmart teal floral midi dress (above), rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearsun hat and maxi dress, rose gold sandals and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and printed jeans.

Perfect for pregnancysun hat in second trimester.


Floral Midi Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral midi dress is an easy one and done outfit choice, and the long sleeves mean you don't have to worry about bracelets, but you can still change up the look with accessories! You can try adding a classic blazer and tote bag for the office, and make it work on the weekends too with simple sandals, a mini bag and a sunhat for sun protection.

Two Ways To Wear: Asymmetrical Striped Maxi Skirt With Little Red Bags

While this is the first time this maxi skirt is appearing on the blog, it's also the last time you'll see it! I picked it up as part of my "fill a bag of clothes for $5" opshop sale haul. A great thrift find, it was new with tags, a classic black maxi skirt with some fun features making it stand out. It's got a high-low hem and it's asymmetrical so the sides are longer. I really liked it as I twirled around in the little opshop change room and so into the bag it went.

Each time I've worn it though, the fun features made it a little annoying. When you divide the $5 by all the items I got it works out to around 63 cents so I'm glad I got some wears of it but hopefully now it's donated back, someone more graceful or taller will enjoy it!

What I wore:

stiped blaxk maxi skirt with pink tassel scarf and navy tee saddle bag spring outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red with striped maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Tee: thrifted Emerson navy slouchy tee
Skirt: thrifted Kmart black and grey knitted asymmetric maxi skirt in shadow
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! The striped scarf was a fun combination with the striped skirt, and the red accessories were a bold pop against the navy and black. The little red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag  matched the red stripes in the skirt nicely.

The skirt was so good to wear in the playground on a hot day, nice and cool as it caught the breeze. It was only when we stopped on the way home to get groceries and the long side of the skirt kept billowing around and getting caught in the wheels of the trolley that I regretted my outfit choice! I contemplated getting the skirt altered so it was shorter, but I tend to wait until I have a pile of alterations to do at once as it's more cost effective (there's a lady I know that does everything at once and charges per hour). I didn't want to leave this skirt sitting unloved waiting around for me to build up a backlog of pieces to alter, so decided to give it one more try and if it didn't work, to donate it back.


Last worn: navy tee, striped scarf, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff studded saddle bag. First time I've worn the skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

The Most Used, Least Used and Cutest Bags In My Handbag Collection:







What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag with burgundy tee and maxi skirt | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | statement necklace and burgundy tee with striped maxi skirt
Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace (new purchase)
TeeZalora Basics maroon stepped t-shirt
Skirt: thrifted Kmart black and grey knitted asymmetric maxi skirt in shadow
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This outfit was the final straw for this beautiful but impractical skirt. I wasn't feeling well but powered through with swim lessons and an important appointment, so I threw on this easy and comfortable outfit. The slouchy burgundy tee was a nice casual option with the skirt. I did try tuck it in at first, but it wouldn't stay in place and I decided I preferred the long line of it untucked. For a little extra touch of colour with the black stripes I picked another red bag, my little Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote. It was a nice combination with the burgundy and black, and I've worn this red bag with burgundy before.

But the thongs (flip flops) were not a good choice with this skirt! After the longer edges of the hem getting caught between my feet and the sole and standing on the hem one too many times I resolved that I'd just donate this skirt back to the opshop. Hopefully the next person to pick it up will be a little less clumsy or a little taller and have less issues with the longer side hems!

Instead of a scarf I wore a statement necklace with this outfit, this fun flat bead one is one I recently thrifted.

Striped Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Even though I've donated this skirt back, I still have a few striped maxi skirts in my wardrobe and think they are a staple for mum-life! A striped maxi skirt looks great with a basic block-colour tee. You can add some extra contrasting colour with your accessories, or even try another print like I have with the striped scarf in the first outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Matching Handbags and Necklaces with Printed Shirts and Colourful Pants For The Office

For roday's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two simple yet colourful outfits I wore to the office. Keeping the accessories as colourful as my pants, I matched my handbags to my bright beaded statement necklaces. I've previously shared about matching bags to shoes, scarves and printed tees before, this time I'm wearing matching accessories together.

What I wore:

olive skinny jeans and mixed print shirt business causal outfit matching shoes and necklace emerald green | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
ShirtJeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In case you missed me sharing the news on Instagram, this fluffy and very curious dog is our temporary foster family member while we dogsit. She loves coming up to me while I'm taking photos and trying to figure out what I'm doing, it can make taking photos a little tricky!

I was eager to wear my new Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag after I bought it on eBay, and I knew this green statement necklace would be the perfect match with it. I've worn it with olive jeans before so knew I'd like this combination, and this printed shirt is an easy simple piece to make my jeans a little more dressed up for the office. But when your boss wears jeans you don't really need to try too hard to dress up denim!


Last worn: mixed print shirt, green statement necklace, olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats. It's the first time I've worn the bag on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmixed print shirt and shorts, olive skinny jeans for long haul flight, gold mouse flats and wrap dress.

My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:







What I wore:

pinstripe shirt with burgundy pants and red accessories matching necklace and bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue
Necklace: thrifted red flat bead necklace
Shirt: Target mint stripe shirt
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I've worn this mint striped shirt with the burgundy pants before and really liked the combination, so I thought I'd wear it again. A classic button up shirt is great for the office, and this one is a comfortable linen. It does however start to look quickly crumpled through the day, and was more noticeable as I left the sleeves down this time instead of rolling them up.

The red and burgundy combo was a new one for me to try - this thrifted necklace pairs so nicely with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and I thought they would be a fun combo together with the pants.

Didn't like this as much as last time I wore this shirt and pants together though, I think since I was trying the red and burgundy I should have went with a more neutral shirt. Very comfortable outfit for a busy day at work though!


Last worn: mint striped shirt, red statement necklace, burgundy pants, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

Printed Shirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic printed shirt works well in the office to bring a little interest to corporate separates. For something a little more fun, you can try pairing a printed shirt with colourful pants, or sneaking a pair of jeans into your outfit like I have with the first one if you work in a less formal environment.

Layering Up Sundresses With Knotted Knits In Winter

These adorable Kmart strappy tiered sundresses from the past two summers are so perfect for the summer heat and humidity in Brisbane. I've layered them up a little for autumn and spring before, but decided to take advantage of some warmer winter days to wear them with more layers! Using my go-to petite style hack of knotting a jumper over a dress to create these outfits.

What I wore:

grey marle knit knotted over kmart strappy tiered aztec print sundress in winter tall boots red bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | red rebecca minkoff micro avery bag grey marle knit knotted over tiered sundress
Knit: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This cute grey knit, a $1 opshop buy at the start of the year, is a longer length with an uneven hem. It means there is a lot of it to tie up when I want to knot it over a dress, but I think it makes the knot more of a feature. Just like last time I knotted this knit, I really liked this outfit! I think the grey knit paired so nicely with the black tiered sundress, and the tan boots were a cosy and comfortable option.

The outfit felt a little too neutral so I added the fun red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag for a touch of colour. I think it was the perfect finishing touch!

It was great to be wearing something I felt happy and comfortable in because I stopped to take these photos on the way to church, at a spot I'd been driving by for a few weeks and thinking how good it would be to take photos there. I hopped out the car, setup the tripod and then a car drove by...and another, and another. Turns out the "little side road" I'd seen actually had a very busy gym in the middle of it and it must have been near the time classes started or finished. I'm awkward enough in public when someone else is taking my photo, it felt even weirder just being there with my tripod! I couldn't pack everything back in the car quick enough, haha!


Last worn: grey knit, beaded necklace, Aztec print sundress, slouchy tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:






What I wore:

cobalt knit knotted over watercolour print tiered sundress with leggings glitter sneakers rebecca minkoff small darren bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | layering knotted knit over printed tiered kmart sundress
Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Although this outfit follows the same formula as the one above, just a more colourful version, I didn't like this one as much. I think possibly because this knit wasn't knotted as tightly and looks a bit more relaxed and slouchy. Being petite, it helps to tie it in a fixed line and have a more defined waist. It looks okay, just not as good as I imagined in my head when I thought up the outfit!

As it was a warmer day, I skipped the fleece-lined tights I'd worn above and just wore leggings and my fun sparkly Kmart glitter sneakers. I even considered going without the leggings and having bare legs, but in the shade at the playground I was glad I'd picked the leggings!

Added a little more colour to this already colourful dress by matching the blush floral print to the pink tassel necklace and Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag. The bag is one I've worn with this dress in the past, I just love the combination.


Last worn: cobalt knit, pink tassel necklace, printed tiered sundress, glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger.

Other ways to wearcobalt knit and purple jeans, printed tiered sundress in summer, glitter sneakers and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger in the office.




Tiered Sundresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty tiered sundress isn't just for summer! You can add more warmth to a spaghetti strap dress with a cosy knit on top, tied at the waist to give your outfit a little more definition. It's a great option for a warmer winter day when you don't need a lot of extra layers.

Colourful Knits and Printed Jeans With Converse & Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two colourful knits and printed skinny jeans outfits, with some very different thoughts on each outfit! While both outfits features pieces I love but rarely wear, I'll be putting one piece back into storage for the time being!

What I wore:

cobalt knit and pink neon leopard print jeans with converse and purple bag mum style | awayfromblue

pink leopard print jeans with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | colourful winter mum style pink leopard print jeans cobalt knit purple plum rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Pants: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I really like wearing these pink leopard print pants with blue, so on a colder winter day I thought this blue knit would be a great piece to wear with them. I'm surprised I haven't worn the combination before actually! It was a nice outfit for a warmer winter day - although it was a bit chilly in the shade, this light cobalt knit was all that was needed in the sun.

I did worry my outfit was maybe a little overdressed for a morning running errands and visiting the playground, as these pants can feel a bit loud, being neon leopard print! But they are so fun to wear and I enjoyed wearing them, they were definitely overdue a wear!

The pink beaded necklace matches the leopard print so nicely, and the white Converse continue on the white in the background of the pants. For something a little less matchy-matchy I picked my Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag to wear. I like purple with both blue and pink, it makes a lovely trio worn all together.


Last worn: cobalt knit, pink beaded necklace, pink leopard print pants, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff plum mini MAB tote.

Handbag Comparison: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote and Micro Avery







What I wore:

Wildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit with sass and bid playman printed skinny jeans converse red bag mum style | away from blue

distressed Wildfox knit with Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | printed jeans with rainbow knit and red rebecca minkoff micro avery bag wildfox distressed sweater
KnitWildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't enjoy wearing this as much! I love the chevron printed jeans with the Converse, that's an outfit I've worn lots before, and the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag was a great pop of colour. It also matched the red on the rainbow knit nicely.

This Wildfox distressed knit is one I got from my friend's wardrobe clearout. It's so soft and special to me as it came from her. However it is a little tricky to wear around toddlers. I've tried it a couple of times over the years, and just like another time I wore it, I've rolled the sleeves up a bit to hide some of the distressing and make it less tempting for toddlers to pull on. But pull on it they did! It's already distressed so it's not like they were making new holes in it, but it's not designed for curious kids to try sticking their arm through the holes 😂

After wrestling them off my jumper I decided to still wear it out anyway for the morning - surely once distracted by the park the boys would give up playing with the cosy jumper. But by lunchtime it turned into one of those freak winter heatwave days and I was melting in my cosy outfit. It was easy for the boys to shed some of the layers I'd put them in that morning, me not so much. Thankfully we made it home without dying of heatstroke!

I promptly resolved to put this knit back in the winter box, to try getting it out again next year when the boys are a little bigger. Hopefully they will like it just as much then as they do now ("I like your jumper Mummy, it makes me smile"), but be a little less grabby with it!

How You Can Wear It:

Jeans are a winter wardrobe staple, especially when paired with cosy knits. For something different, try a pair of printed denim instead. You can use the print to add more colour to your outfit, like I have in the first outfit, or just add more detail to an outfit like in the second outfit.
