Christmas Outfits: Red Santa Scarf Worn Three Ways

Happy Christmas Eve!

Like all of my blog posts, this one is scheduled in advance. I will be spending the day with my family. On Christmas Eve we decorate cookies, do Christmas crafts, and watch Christmas movies. To keep in the festive spirit, I'm sharing 3 of my recent Christmas themed outfits with this Santa scarf from Fashion Scarf Girl (c/o).


What I wore:

Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl red Santa scarf (c/o)
TeeJeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for our annual pre-Christmas shopping trip! All the girls in the family go out for the day, picking up last minute gifts for others and buying gifts for each other when we see things we have to have. It's such a fun tradition and even if we don't manage to buy a lot we always have a great time!

Last year I wore a pretty dress, but this year the kids came along so I thought shorts were a more practical choice! Added a little festivity to my printed tank and shorts outfit with this fun scarf. The red Rebecca Minkoff mini Avery bag was a nice bit of matchy matchy red too.


Last worn: star print foil tee, black denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearstar print foil tee worn two ways, black denim shorts in capsule wardrobe, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and dress.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Another Christmas event, another opportunity to wear this Santa scarf! I wore it with black again, this plain black halterneck maxi dress was a lovely backdrop and really let the scarf shine. Perfect for an end of year celebration dinner with some other mums from my local Australian Breastfeeding Association. I quickly got changed after work into this, a simple outfit but so comfortable to wear for dinner.

As I was kid free, I made the most of it and picked this adorable little Rebecca Minkoff small love bag to hold my essentials. Another cheerful pop of colour!

TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Last but not least, wore this to take the boys to White Christmas at Movie World. It was the first time we've been to White Christmas and the first time the boys had been to Movie World! In December, the park opens for a few hours in the evening to allow you to enjoy the Christmas festivities.

With a big Christmas parade, snow falling and so many Christmas themed activities, the Santa scarf was an obvious choice. With a simple shorts and a tank outfit, as it was still hot and I had anticipated going on a lot of rides with the boys!

Again I paired the red Santa scarf with the Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag - it's such a nice combo!


Last worn: striped tank, distressed denim shorts, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag (above).

Other ways to wearstriped tank and purple jeans, distressed denim shorts and kimonosilver glitter sneakers and dress, Rebecca Minkoff Avery and skinny jeans.

(grab one in the sales for next year!)

How You Can Wear It:


An easy way to make an outfit festive without spending a lot is by adding an accessory. This Santa scarf works perfectly for winter, but what about a heart print scarf for Valentine's day, or a bunny printed clutch for Easter? Accessories are a cheap and cheerful way to change up an outfit and make it festive for an occasion.


No matter what you're wearing or what you're doing, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and get to experience God's peace and love in your life. Merry Christmas!

Brisbane Bloggers Brunch 2018 Vlog! Plus Jewel Toned Tops and Skinny Jeans Outfits

With two busy days planned, I went with a casual and comfortable outfit formula. Skinny jeans and jewel toned tops, accessorised with Rebecca Minkoff Love bags and some cosy scarves. I included a vlog of one of the days below, it was so much fun and a different kind of thing from what I'd normally do so I hope you enjoy watching it.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | awayfromtheblue

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I wore this to the Kids Business Brisbane Blogger's Brunch! I've been invited along to a few of them, but this is the first one in Brisbane, and as I didn't have anything else planned for the day I decided to go. I was a little nervous about it all, so I stuck with pieces I knew I'd love. This cute boho blouse, my favourite grey skinny jeans and my cute little Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag, as I was able to go kid free for the day.

The purpose of the brunch was to meet and get to know some brands, a few which I have had the pleasure of discussing projects with so you might see them pop up in future. You can view the video below for all the fun of the day - including what happened when I used power tools! Multiple power tools! 😂

It was a warmer day than expected so I definitely didn't need a jacket, I even regretted the cosy scarf a couple times, but the venue was air conditioned so I didn't mind too much once I was inside.


Last worn: navy blouse, paisley print snood, grey skinny jeans, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag.

Other ways to wearnavy blouse worn two ways, paisley print snood and shift dress, grey skinny jeans and monochrome outfit, metallic ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag and a blazer.

Perfect for pregnancy: paisley print snood in second trimester, metallic ballet flats in third trimester.


Brisbane Bloggers Brunch Event Vlog:




Sharing all the fun of the event, including more about what I wore and what's in my bag.




What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey quilted leather | away from the blue

TopJeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Another busy day, with again a few kid free hours. It doesn't happen often so hubby and I took advantage by powering through a to do list, with a bit of driving around. Again, it was a warmer day so I didn't need a jacket. The fun parrot print scarf (another one I got for my Fashion Scarf girl brand rep role) was just the perfect piece with the rich teal henley. I loved the colours in this outfit.

Unlike the outfit above, I kept things simple with my handbag and went with my neutral Rebecca Minkoff grey Love cross body bag instead of a colourful one, letting the scarf be the extra colour and print in my outfit.


Last worn: teal henley, Prima skinny jeans, Walnut Melbourne flats, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it's a recent (c/o) addition to my wardrobe.

Jewel Toned Tops Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Jewel toned tops go great with denim! The neutral skinny jeans I'm wearing here are a perfect choice, and you can always add a further touch of colour to your outfit with accessories. Could be a bright bag like the coral one with the navy top, or the parrot print scarf with the teal henley.

Birthday Party Maxi Dresses For Any Weather with Rebecca Minkoff Small Love Bag in Pale Coral

Maxi dresses work for so many different occasions. They are my go-to outfit for birthday celebrations, comfortable enough when running around with kids, but dressy enough and look like you've put a lot more effort in than you really have! For two recent birthday events, I wore my new Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag I bought in the recent sale, even though I wore different layers for each outfit to match the different temperatures. Maxi dresses are so easy to layer up or down.

What I wore:

DressJeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell (C/O)
Belt: came with dress
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for my eldest's 4th birthday party. Crazy to think I have a 4 year old already!

I'll be honest here, I never left the house so the bag was basically just for show. (That's also why I didn't wear shoes). I love the pale coral against the mint colour of the maxi dress. My plan was to have the bag hanging off a chair with my phone, camera and keys in it so I always knew where everything was through the party. Unfortunately, I realised at the last minute that the bag is so small my camera (Sony Alpha) didn't fit in it, so that was a bit of a fail.

As much as I love this dress, the tie waist was a little inconvenient, with one of my boys untying it while playing with it as we sang happy birthday. When the dress is tied up it creates a blouson effect that you can see in the pics. When it's untied, it's much too long on my petite frame, ha! I spent the rest of the party furiously tying it back up every time it untied itself or was untied by an accidental tug.

Despite the bag not being big enough and the frequent belt retying that went on, I did like this outfit. The dress is a beautiful colour and a maxi dress is such an easy option when hosting a birthday party - just throw it on and you're done!


Last worn: grecian maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff coral chevron small Love bag.

DressJeanswest 'Elodie' tie dye grey jersey maxi dress

BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

First, can we talk about how great that Insta photo is?! My friend is the best photographer and the rooftop bar had this perfectly instagrammable wall for us to use in our pics (16 Antlers if you're ever in Brisbane). It got a lot of love on Instagram when I posted it.

I wore this for another birthday party, but unlike the first outfit, this was a girly night out. I layered up in anticipation of the cold weather, by adding ankle boots, a leather jacket and a big blanket scarf to this summer maxi dress. It wasn't that chilly at the start of the night, but when we ended up cruising up and down the Brisbane river on the ferry, I was glad of all my extra layers!

It was the perfect first outing for my little Rebecca Minkoff love bag - I thought the bright yellow scarf worked nicely with the peachy colour of the bag. Not the first time I've worn yellow with this grey tie dye maxi dress either. I really like the combination.

As I was kid free I put on my prettiest dangly earrings too, and indulged in a few cocktails. It was such a fun night. Even if it was rather chilly at the end, my layers were perfect for it.

Maxi Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:


A maxi dress works for a night out in a bar toasting your friend with cocktails, or a casual catch up for a kid's birthday party. It really is a go-anywhere option, and a perfect choice for a busy mum as it's an instant outfit. Of course a maxi dress can work no matter the weather too! Ankle boots, a leather jacket and scarf make it suitable for cold weather, or you can wear it on its own layer free for a warmer day.

Blazers and Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags

Because I like making things easy, following the same outfit formula of jeans, a jersey blazer and a printed tank. Along with my Rebecca Minkoff love bags. I bought another version in the recent Rebecca Minkoff sale, and this is the first time I've shared an outfit with it on the blog. You can see the unboxing here.

What I wore:

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

I got some rare kid-free time to go shopping! That almost never happens, I think the last time was just before Christmas! I had signed up for a secret santa 'Christmas in July' gift exchange with some Aussie mum vloggers I've met through YouTube, and decided to take a couple of hours to finish up shopping for the person I drew. I had a lot of fun shopping, and picked up a little necklace for me too that you might have already seen here.

As I was kid free, I decided to take out my little Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag. I thought that the peachy-coral would look nice with the pale peach leaves printed on the tank, but they are so pale they never really show up in photos. I still liked the combination though. As it was much too cold for a sleeveless tank, I added the blazer on top. I really liked this outfit and had a productive couple of hours of shopping too.


Last worn: cream blazer, leaf print tank, Nobody Denim jeans, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats. First time I've worn the Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag as it's a recent purchase.

Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag Review & What's In My Bag










What I wore:

Printed tank with neon pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf jersey blazer skinny jeans | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | away from the blue blog

Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
ScarfAlexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
TankJeanswest Florence print long line tank
JeansJeanswest 'shale' super skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit combo above so much, I repeated it again to go to playgroup. I had the boys with me so went with the bigger grey Love bag. It fits my wallet in it, unlike the smaller peach one. Just nice having everything on me ready to go instead of carrying just a few cards like I did for the shopping trip above.

The neon pink scarf was a nice pop of color with all of the neutrals, and kept me cosy in the cooler morning. I took it off in the afternoon though when it warmed up.

It was good to give this tank another wear too - one of my favourites, each time I wear it I worry it's gone too long between wears. I'm thankful for the Brisbane winter weather that means you can still wear sleeveless tanks with just an extra layer like a blazer on top.


Last worn: black jersey blazer, pink skull scarf, printed tank, purple skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff studded guitar strap, Rebecca Minkoff quilted love bag.

Other ways to wearblack jersey blazer and striped dress, pink skull scarf and chambray dress, printed tank and bright purple, purple skinny jeans and kimono, silver ballet flats and summer dress, Rebecca Minkoff studded guitar strap on Regan bag, Rebecca Minkoff quilted love bag and maxi dress.

Jersey Blazers Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Blazers can definitely be worn out of the office. Try pairing them with denim, they work just as well with jeans as they do with pencil skirts. A casual fabric, like these jersey ones, or a knit one, can help make them more comfortable and suited for weekend outfits.
