30 Ways To Wear: Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag & Weekday Wear Link Up #30wears

This Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag is overdue a 30 wears post, I hit 30 wears with it a while ago!
Every month, I pick something in my wardrobe I've worn 30 or more times and put together a post showing you the ways I've worn it over the years. I got the idea from The True Cost documentary and I hope it gives you some inspiration for the pieces in your wardrobe.

The Weekday Wear Link up is here too, just scroll on down through this picture heavy post.


30 Wears: Rebecca Minkoff Navy Regan Satchel



30 Ways to wear Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel medium bag | away from the blue blog



This bag is the perfect neutral - a big navy rectangle that's neither too formal or too casual so it works on my stay at home mum days and for my part time office job. I fell in love with it seeing its similarity to the Balenciaga city bag but at a much lower price point, so I snapped it up when it was on sale!

Cost Per Wear


I bought this bag in the Rebecca Minkoff sale at the end of 2017, for $241.45 (including the insanely high shipping charges when buying from Rebecca Minkoff online and shipping to Australia!). At 37 wears that's $6.53 per wear. It will be easy to continue to get this cost per wear down further over the years, especially as this bag still looks new after almost 3 years of wear. Even after having the contents of an entire water bottle accidentally dumped inside!

With a big neutral bag like this it's easy to change up the look by accessorising it a little - it's a great "blank canvas"! From a silk scarf, llama bag charm or even swapping out the bag strap, just a small change can make the Regan bag look a little different each time you wear it.


Navy Regan Bag and Black Outfit Pieces

Navy and black is a colour combination I wear quite a lot! I like the two neutrals together, whether it's adding this navy bag to an outfit with a lot of black in it or wearing a navy and black outfit and matching the navy clothes with the navy bag.

Blue and green should definitely be seen! As you can see here no matter what shade of green you have in your outfit, a navy bag works brilliantly. Especially when paired with other navy pieces too like the tank or cardigan. You can see 30 ways I've worn this navy tank here.


Monochrome Outfits With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

Blue being my favourite colour, I do wear a lot of it! I like a bit of matchy-matchy too so if you have a monochromatic blue outfit, why not go all out and add a navy bag to your outfit too for a complete monochrome look?

Finishing up with 4 casual outfits showing how versatile this bag is - shorts, jeans or skirts, the Regan works with every outfit (and rather crucially fits mine and the kids water bottles inside so I don't need to carry the baby bag when I wear it). I was reaching for it quite often before Coronavirus changed the world, perfect bag when I was out with the kids.

Navy Skirts And Printed Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

I've been wearing a lot of maxi skirts lately! They are a nice option for staying covered up but still cool in the hot and humid weather (even though it's officially autumn now in Brisbane!).

What I wore:



Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I've been looking at this thrifted printed tee in my wardrobe for a while realising it was overdue a wear, but I always picked something else to wear instead. This plain navy maxi skirt was the perfect pairing and let the tee be the statement in the outfit. The tee was thrifted for just $1 and the skirt was another thrift find at $4 making this a very affordable outfit!

The bag of course is on the more expensive side! This Rebecca Minkoff Regan is becoming a staple when I spend the day with my youngest while my eldest is in school. I can easily fit both our water bottles inside along with some wipes and hand sanitiser (and my phone and wallet of course) so it saves me also carrying a baby bag too. We had a busy morning but a relaxed afternoon at home before school pickup.


Last worn: abstract print tee, blush tassel necklace, navy maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearabstract print tee and shorts, navy maxi skirt with stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and pencil skirt.



What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan










What I wore:



Necklace: engraved interlinked silver circle family name necklace
Top: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoes:slim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I purchased this tee on our Europe trip last year while shopping in Primark in Edinburgh. I wasn't sure how much wear I'd get from it but it worked out to be around $5 so I couldn't resist! It's actually been getting a bit of wear since I bought it - being a lover of blue I find it works so well with a lot of my wardrobe and it's nice to try wear a little bit more white. Couldn't resist going matchy-matchy and pairing the navy and white graphic tee with the navy and white striped maxi skirt.

Even my Havaianas and my Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag were navy, a very matchy-matchy outfit for me! After the school run we did a quick grocery shop, and then running a few errands after school pick up.


Last worn: Edinburgh graphic tee, silver necklace, navy striped maxi skirt, Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearEdinburgh graphic tee and jeans, navy striped maxi skirt and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag in the office.




Navy Maxi Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A navy maxi skirt is a great wardrobe staple, and paired with a tee is a simple mum friendly outfit. For something a little different you can try introducing other prints and patterns with a printed or graphic tee, or stripes.

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!


Last worn: yellow kimono, navy breastfeeding tank, turquoise tassel necklace, olive embroidered shorts, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey (get it second hand)

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.

Blue & Teal Outfits: Floral Dresses and Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm wearing two blue floral dresses for the office and accessorising them with blue bags for a simple navy and teal outfit, that looks different each time.

What I wore:

Shein navy floral swing dress in office with gold accessories and Balenciaga 2006 chevre first blue India bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India chevre on arm with floral dress | awayfromthebluec

awayfromtheblue Instagram | navy floral swing dress with teal Balenciaga first bag blue India summer office style
Earrings: Prouds gold and silver spiral drop earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (c/o)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Wore this for my last official day in my old team before moving onto a new role! I'm so excited to start the new year off with a new job, even if I am just on the other side of the building from my old team.

Despite the rain it was quite a warm day so this simple navy swing dress was perfect for the office and the commute. I kept the accessories simple with the gold spiral drop earrings, beaded necklace and gold mouse flats. I love a bit of matchy matchy! Thought that this teal-ish turquoise-y Balenciaga first bag would be a nice touch with the navy dress, I really liked this combination and I like that this bag seems a slightly different shade in different lights sometimes! it's hard to tell if it's more turquoise or teal!


Last worn: gold earrings, navy swing dress, beaded necklace, gold mouse flats, Balenciaga blue India first bag.

Other ways to wearnavy swing dress and sneakersgold mouse flats worn 30 ways, Balenciaga blue India first bag and shorts.

Balenciaga Bags Vs Rebecca Minkoff Bags:







What I wore:

Kmart teal floral print midi dress in the office with grey blazer, silver ballet flats, navy Regan tote | away from blue

teal floral dress with navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | away from the blue

JacketJeanswest grey jersey blazer
Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

The same outfit formula as the one above, just a little changed around and an extra layer added. This time it's a teal floral dress and a navy bag. I've worn a different Rebecca Minkoff navy bag with this teal floral midi dress before, I like the colour combo. I thought this Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel went so nicely with the dress, and with the grey blazer it made it a little more formal for the office.

I'd planned to wear this outfit the week before but the wild weather changed my mind. While it was still raining on this day, it wasn't as bad (and I could actually take blog photos on the patio without the rain blowing in). The blazer wasn't needed for warmth as it was still quite humid even with all the rain.


Last worn: grey blazer, Tiffany heart necklace, teal floral midi dress, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan tote.

Other ways to weargrey blazer and a-line skirt, teal floral midi dress worn two ways, silver ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Regan tote and skinny jeans.

Perfect for pregnancysilver ballet flats in third trimester.



Blue Floral Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral dress is a fun and easy outfit for the office. It looks great worn on its own or you can make it a little more formal with a blazer on top too. Picking a handbag in a different shade of blue is a great way to accessorise too.

Tiered Kmart Sundresses And Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Before the wet weather really set in at the start of February, we had some really hot days and I pulled out these lovely Kmart tiered sundresses again. Light, floaty viscose, so perfect for a hot day!

What I wore:

kmart tiered black sundress with white waterfall drape jacket and burgundy avery crossbody bag | awayfromblue

black and white outfit with Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram white waterfall drape jacket cover up spaghetti strap sundress for church black white outfit
Earrings: Prouds gold and silver spiral drop earrings
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
Necklace: engraved interlinked silver circle family name necklace
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
BagRebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy

Why I wore it:

This white waterfall jacket was definitely not needed for extra warmth! This sundress is the cutest but it has spaghetti straps I wanted to cover up for church. I have a few kimonos but settled on this jacket that hasn't been worn in a while. Last time I wore it I noted how it had been pretty underutilised in my wardrobe and I needed to wear it more. Well it's certainly been more than a month since I wore it last but I think it's been given another pass to stay in my wardrobe a while longer! I did like how it looked with the black printed sundress, even if I took the jacket off as soon as we got home as it was much too hot for it in the afternoon!

With the simple black and white outfit I wanted to add a little more colour - this burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag seemed like a good choice and the silver hardware matched my necklace and bracelet stack well too. I always take the baby bag into church with some entertainment for the kids and all our water bottles, so a small crossbody bag was all I needed.


Last worn: waterfall jacket, silver circle necklace, black printed sundress, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody. First time I've worn the earrings as they were a gift from hubby.

Other ways to wearwaterfall jacket and shorts, black printed sundress in winter, studded sandals and chambray, Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancywaterfall jacket in third trimester, studded sandals in third trimester.


My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:







What I wore:

kmart watercolour pink printed tiered sundress summer heatwave style brisbane | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with llama bag charm | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | kmart Australia blue pink tiered sundress summer heatwave style
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

The day before all the rains arrived it was a much too hot and humid 36͒ C (97͒ F). I didn't want to wear any layers or anything too warm, this printed sundress was perfect. Being a size bigger than the one above, it was really loose and heatwave friendly, perfect for the school run on a very warm day. I'm definitely getting the most from this $2 clearance sale find!

I did try accessorise it a little with this long necklace - the stones aren't real so it's quite light to wear. I picked the Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag as I liked the navy with the blue in the dress, and also because it fit mine and my son's water bottles inside so I didn't need to carry the baby bag around. It was nice to not have to carry multiple bags around, even if we only went to grab groceries and then  chilled at home in the aircon before school pickup!


Last worn: blue and pink Kmart sundress, Happiness boutique necklace, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearblue and pink Kmart sundress and magenta bag, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and pencil skirt.



Tiered Sundresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple sundress is a great outfit for a hot day! It's an easy instant outfit and will keep you cool in the heat. If you're going to be in the aircon or you want to cover up your shoulders you can always add a light jacket like I have in the first outfit.

Peplum Tanks and Textured Pencil Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag | Weekday Wear Link Up!

Keeping it simple on super humid summer days at work with peplum tanks and textured pencil skirts. It's not the first time I've worn my peplum tanks with pencil skirts, I like the fun silhouette it creates while still being formal for work (especially if you throw a blazer over the top). No blazer on these days though, the summer heat and humidity were too much! I did cover up my shoulders with a cardigan in the cold office aricon.

What I wore:

black peplum tank with blush pink polka dot pencil skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel | away from blue

black and pink outfit with navy bag Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram| black zalora peplum tank with blush pink polka dot pencil skirt rebecca minkoff regan bag
Necklace: Colette crescent purple and gold necklace
Tank: Zalora basics ruffle hem tank in black
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

While it’s the first time I’ve worn this peplum tank and pencil skirt together, I have worn other peplum tank with this pencil skirt. I really like the combination with the longer skirt and the peplum tank, especially as the black of the tank matches the textured dots on the skirt for a nice bit of matchy-matchy.

The crescent necklace added a little extra colour to my outfit, as did the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag. I like black and navy together and this is a great bag for work. I picked the gold mouse flats to be a little matchy-matchy again with the necklace, and because they are so cute!


Last worn: black peplum tank, polka dot pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag. First time I've shared the necklace on the blog as it was a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearblack peplum tank and shorts, polka dot pencil skirt and pearls, gold mouse flats worn 30 ways, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and belted dress.

Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tank: Kmart black sleeveless frill hem peplum tank
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

This was a great outfit but a bit of an accessory fail! I'd picked out this tank to wear as it was longer to cover up a bit when I swapped the jacquard pencil skirt for leggings to go to my lunch time physio session. (After I injured my knee at the end of the year, I'm looking at frequent physio appointments). It was a little too short so I ended up wearing my office cardigan over the tank and leggings when I went out at lunch time.

I really liked the earrings with this, it's the first time I've worn these gold bar earrings and I thought they went nicely with the black peplum tank. I wasn't sure on what necklace to wear when I was planning this outfit the night before so decided to pick in the morning. This tortoiseshell circle pendant with the black tassel was a nice mix of print to have with the jacquard skirt and the gold chain matched the gold earrings nicely too. I didn't realise until after I looked at the photos that the black tassel on the necklace doesn't really show up very well against the black tank though! It was a bit more noticeable in person.

As much as I liked this outfit, I could have made it look better in pictures if I'd picked a different necklace! You can see all the prettiness of the necklace better last time I wore it.

Other ways to wearblack peplum tank and shorts, jacquard pencil skirt and warp top, black ballet flats and midi dress, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Black Peplum Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A peplum hem on a tank is a fun twist on a wardrobe basic. With an extra layer on top to cover your shoulders if you work in a more formal environment, it's a great choice for the office when worn with a pencil skirt I like I've shown here. You can even match the colour of the tank to one of the colours in your pencil skirt too.

3 Colours To Wear With A Navy Kimono

I'm so close to 30 wears with this navy printed kimono so I've been wearing it a lot lately so I can reach that goal and put together a 30 ways to wear post with it.

Since I haven't hit that number quite yet, I'm just showing you 3 different ways I've worn this navy kimono recently, and some ideas of different colours to wear with a blue kimono.

What I wore:

navy kimono with red tee and distressed denim shorts, louis vuitton neverfull tote for picnic park play date | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy printed kimono coral tee black denim shorts louis vuitton neverfull tote
JacketNew Look Petite print kimono
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a much needed family day! While the smoke haze from the bushfires had died down a little near is the air quality was still pretty low and we hadn't spent a lot of time outside. Me being sick hadn't helped!

We decided to spend the day on the coast where the air was much clearer, having a picnic in the park before dinner at my parents. It was a really fun day and a much needed chance to relax. Even if we did have to pull out the first aid kits (yes plural) out the car just after we got to the park, the rest of the day went much better.

This v-neck tee is labelled as coral but always looks so red in pics! I like red and blue together and think this coral tee really pops with the navy print. I think navy and black go together well too and these shorts were so comfortable for a morning playing in the park. The Louis Vuitton neverfull is a great bag for carrying all the little extras at a picnic that don't fit in the main bag too.

The tassel necklace adds a touch of a third colour with the turquoise beads as well.


Last worn: navy kimono, tassel necklace, coral tee, distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton azur neverfull.

Other ways to wearnavy kimono and pencil skirt, coral tee and maxi skirt, distressed denim shorts and printed tee, Louis Vuitton azur neverfull and chambray skirt.

Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another shorts, tee and kimono outfit, this one even brighter than the one above! Orange and blue are a bold colour combo and I love the two together. With my classic blue Bermuda denim shorts and  neutral tan MAB camera bag it was a simple and colourful outfit for another play date in the park with some school mums, a few weeks ago before the smoke haze got too bad.

Probably could have tucked this orange tee in a little to make the outfit look more streamlined like I did in the first outfit, but with the longer length of the kimono and longer shorts I thought I'd try it untucked.

Why I wore it:

Something very different, wearing a dress and kimono together this time. I've worn this grey skater dress with kimonos in the past and really liked the combo so thought I'd try this navy kimono with it.. I like blue and grey together, and I kept it simple with neutral studded sandals and a navy bag to match the print on the kimono.

Couldn't resist adding a little more colour though with this fun thrifted magenta statement necklace - it really stands out against the grey dress and I like pink and blue together too.

It was a hot day, and I felt a little warm in this! The dress is quite a thick cotton. Wanted to wear a dress to try beat the heat and look a little more pulled together for an appointment with my son. A sleeveless one might have worked better though.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy kimono is a wardrobe staple for me and it works with so many other colours! Red, orange, pink, turquoise or even a neutral like grey are great things to wear with it. You can go big and bold with a bright tee or more subtle with a colourful accessory like a necklace.
