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:

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.

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

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.

Two Ways To Wear A Navy V-Neck Tee: Jeanswest Sophie V-Neck Tee

This navy tee is one of the ones I picked up from Jeanswest during my massive Christmas gift card shopping spree. They'd only brought out into the store that day (the sales assistant had trouble scanning it) and so it was perfect timing! While I love blue I didn't have a navy v-neck tee. So pleased I do now! It works so well with the other pieces I have in my wardrobe, and I'm wearing it two different ways below.

What I wore:

navy v neck jeanswest tee with ally fashion floral maxi skirt pink accessories on monochrome blue outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with monochromatic blue outfit | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instgaram | monochrome blue outfit with navy tee floral maxi skirt mum church style
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
SkirtAlly Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Just knew I had to pair this navy tee with this blue maxi skirt. Something my mum got me for Christmas, this skirt has been on frequent repeat lately as it's so perfect for summer! I really liked the navy with the brighter blue of the skirt, and accessorising was so simple. The blush necklace and peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag work so well with the pink flowers in the floral print.

This was a quick and easy outfit to pull together to head over to my friends house to watch Church Online. The maxi skirt accommodated the knee brace I've been wearing when I have to drive long distances, even though she just lives 30 minutes away driving really aggravates my knee after I injured it after Christmas.

Really liked all the colours in this outfit, made my matchy-matchy self very happy, especially when I added the navy and pink Havaianas to stick with the colour scheme, haha!


Last worn: floral maxi skirt, pink beaded necklace, navy Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag. First time I've worn the navy tee as it's a recent purchase.

What I wore:

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeJeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

These embroidered soft shorts are a summer fave for me and I like wearing them with blue - I added the navy tee and couldn't resist wearing this blue tie-dye kimono too, I thought all the blue went so nicely together with the olive. I added even more colour with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag for a bit of a contrast, and my little turquoise tassel necklace which I often wear with green.

A nice comfortable and colourful outfit for walking along the bike trail and then visiting the park with the boys. I didn't wear my knee brace, instead I put on my old but supportive New Balance sneakers to help reduce the impact on my injured knee as we walked around. The boys could scoot and cycle much faster than I could limp along, but luckily hubby was there to help and keep an eye on them if they went too far while I trailed behind, haha! It was a hot day so the kimono wasn't really needed, but it was nice to have some extra sun protection for my arms.


Last worn: tie-dye kimono, navy tee (above), tassel necklace, olive embroidered shorts, sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to weartie-dye kimono and denim shorts, olive embroidered shorts and striped tee, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan worn 30 ways.



Navy V-Neck Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A navy v-neck tee is a great wardrobe basic to have! It's the perfect neutral. It looks good with other neutrals like olive and is a fun base for pink or yellow accessories like these Rebecca Minkoff bags.

Floral Kimonos and Space Dye Tees With Denim Shorts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Two very similar outfits again, just like Monday's post. I was wearing my denim shorts, thrifted space dye tees and some floral kimonos with silver necklaces and my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. Easy outfits for the school run.

What I wore:

sheer floral supre kimono thrifted distressed denim shorts space dye tee rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue

sheer floral kimono with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta  | awayfromtheblue

Jacketthrifted Supre black sheer floral kimono
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!)

Why I wore it:

This is such an affordable outfit - if you look at the clothing (although the Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag was on sale it was still over $200! 😂). The kimono I thrifted recently for $1, the black space dye tee was just 67 cents as I got it as part of a "fill a bag for $2" sale at the opshop, and the denim shorts were another opshop find and just $8.50. I've been trying to buy second hand more and this outfit is a great example of all of that.

The black space dye tee I thought would go nicely with the sheer floral kimono, I really liked the way this outfit turned out. Perfect for the school and daycare drop off on a hot day. The tee and shorts felt a little plain on their own, even with the long silver statement necklace, so the floral kimono added a little extra colour and print to my outfit, and the magenta Edie bag pairs with the pink florals so nicely.


Last worn: sheer floral kimono, silver circle necklace, black space dye tee, distressed denim shorts, black Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearsheer floral kimono and pink shorts, black space dye tee in the office, distressed denim shorts and grey knit, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and sundress.



What's In My Bag & Review: Rebecca Minkoff Edie Cross Body










What I wore:

floral kimono with magenta Rebecca Minkoff edie crossbody small bag | away from the blue

floral cocoon kimono space dye tee bermuda denim shorts rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue Instagram
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
NecklaceJeanswest Taki necklace (C/O)
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!)

Why I wore it:

This outfit follows the exact same formula as the outfit above, and yet I didn't like it as much. It was okay, I just liked the first one more. I thought this thrifted white space dye tee would go nicely with this navy floral kimono as it has a lot of white in the print, and the Bermuda denim shorts are a wardrobe staple that work well with the cocoon style of the kimono. Again, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag in magenta was so good with the floral print.

It was a cooler morning for the school run and daycare drop off, so I picked this warmer cotton kimono to wear. when I had my dentist appointment in the afternoon she complimented me on it and was surprised I was wearing it outside - it was much warmer in the afternoon! So helpful in the morning and for staying cosy in the aircon at the dentist, but definitely much too warm in the afternoon. Perhaps that's why I didn't like this outfit as much. Trying so hard to wear this kimono often to reach that 30 wears figure though!


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, space dye tee, silver statement necklace, Bermuda denim shorts, navy Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag (above).

Other ways to wearfloral cocoon kimono and jeans, space dye tee and green, Bermuda denim shorts worn 30 ways, Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral cocoon kimono at 39 weeks.


Space Dye Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A space dye tee is a fun twist on a classic plain tee. The print isn't so overwhelming that you can't wear it with other printed pieces in your outfit. Try florals! You can coordinate the floral print to match the colours on the tee too like I have with each outfit here.

Colourful Outfits To Match Printed Kimonos

Even a glance at my blog or Instagram will tell you I love kimonos! With warm temperatures most of the year here in Brisbane they have become a wardrobe staple for me and are a great way to add a little more colour and interest to an outfit.

This time around I picked the kimonos I wanted to wear and created outfits based on the colours from the kimonos. It was a fun way to wear some of my recently purchased pieces!

What I wore:

Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono with Vickie turquoise tank and russet skinny jeans regan cross body bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue | Jeanswest mum style outfit melanie floral kimono vickie button tank harper russet skinny pant burgundy turquoise
JacketJeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TankJeanswest Vickie button back tank in enamel blue (new purchase)
JeansJeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet (new purchase)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy

Why I wore it:

This is a very Jeanswest heavy outfit! The kimono, tank and jeans are all Jeanswest. As I explained with my post Christmas sale haul, my go-to store Jeanswest has gone into administration. Rather than spending all my Christmas gift cards through the year as usual, I spent all of them in one month in January, in case things change with the store possible closing, and they wouldn't be honoured later.

When I looked at what I'd bought I realised how well it all worked together, so I took the chance on that one day when we had slightly cooler temps with all the rain and it was under 30 degrees Celsius to wear my new jeans. Bit of a big day, with swimming lessons, almost being trapped in floodwaters, and a joint birthday party to attend. The humidity increased through the day too so I wasn't entirely happy with my choice to wear jeans instead of shorts, but I did love the outfit in the cooler morning! Even if the turquoise tank quickly creased like crazy!

My new jeans go so well with this burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag that my sister got me for Christmas, I just had to wear them together to continue the matchy-matchy with them both and the tank matching the tropical print on the kimono.


Last worn: tropical floral kimono, leaf necklace, Havaianas. First time I've worn the rust jeans and turquoise tank as they are recent purchases, and first time I've worn the Regan crossbody bag as it was a Christmas gift.

Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

While this outfit copies the same formula as the outfit above, picking clothes and a bag to wear that match the floral print of the kimono, the outfit looks very different as this kimono has a different set of colours. Still just as easy to pull together as the first outfit though. I liked the pastel combination of the lilac tank with the blush shorts and this $1 sheer floral kimono from the opshop was a great buy!

I added the New Balance sneakers as we had a big day out planned and I knew my knee would need some extra support. (I injured it after Christmas and it's going to take months to heal). Took the kids into the city to visit the Water exhibition at GOMA. It was really interactive and they enjoyed it. The Riverbed installation was an actual river flowing through the gallery and a lot of rocks and gravel which was very difficult to walk on for me, definitely overdid it a bit!

It was a fun day out though, knee pain aside. After we'd been to the gallery we met hubby for lunch as he was working in the city.


Last worn: lilac tee, pearl tassel necklace, pink shorts, New Balance sneakers, purple Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag. First time I've worn the sheer floral kimono as it's a recent purchase.

Floral Kimonos Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A fun floral kimono has so many possible outfits you can wear with it - shorts and a tee is a summer staple of course, but you can mix it up each time you wear it by picking clothes to wear that match the colours in the print. It creates a completely different outfit each time, even though you are following the same outfit formula and is so quick to pull together, very mum friendly!

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.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan

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.

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.

Maxi Skirts and V-Neck Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

I like to stick to my outfit formulas a lot, as you'll know if you follow my blog. A plain tee and a printed maxi skirt is one formula I wear often! It's such a simple outfit for a hot day, and sticking with a plain tee means you don't have to worry about prints clashing. You don't have to restrict yourself to neutrals either, I'm wearing two bright tees with equally colourful maxi skirts below.


What I wore:

Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
SkirtAlly Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wearing a lot of new pieces here! It's so fun looking at my wardrobe after Christmas and seeing all the new combinations I can come up with! This raspberry pink tee, a gift from my mum, works so nicely with this blue floral maxi skirt, another gift from my mum! While there is pink in the print of the skirt, it's a slightly different shade. I still think they work so well together though.

I kept the accessories simple, sticking with plain silver, from the silver Tiffany necklace (a Christmas gift from the boys) to the silver bracelets I never take off and the metallic silver mini MAC bag. This bag goes with everything, such a staple for me.

Had a quiet morning at home with friends - we hosted Church Online at our place for a change. It's nice having the space to be able to do things like that in our new house!


Last worn: raspberry tee, blue floral maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC bag. It's the first time I've worn the necklace as it was a Christmas present.

ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another bright and colourful outfit! I got this idea from Sheila and a comment she left on a previous post where I wore this red printed maxi skirt with a white tee and mustard scarf, saying the skirt would look good with a mustard tee. There is yellow on the print of the skirt so it seems like a great pairing, but I wasn't sure about the boldness of the two pieces together. When I picked up this pale yellow tee in the Jeanswest sales after Christmas, I knew I wanted to try wearing it with this skirt!

Although the red and yellow felt bold enough I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour with this aquamarine mini MAC bag. It's a firm favourite as I like the way it works with yellow! Kept the rest of my accessories simple and neutral to let the outfit shine.

This was the perfect combination of colourful and comfortable for attending a playdate with the wonderful Sasha, our kids had such a fun time together and despite a few interruptions we got a great chat in. She's such a sweet lady and blogger and I'm so glad to have had the chance to catch up with her again! Funnily enough I wore this maxi skirt last time I met up with her too!

Perfect for pregnancystudded sandals in second trimester, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC bag at 39 weeks.



Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A plain tee and printed maxi skirt is such an easy outfit for mum life - whether hosting friends at home or running around after your kids at the playground! For something a little different you can try a brightly coloured tee to wear with the maxi skirt, picking a colour out from the print to find the perfect colour of tee.

Foil Print Tees and Denim Shorts With Bright Rebecca Minkoff Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up!

More casual outfits for this week's Weekday Wear Link up. Back in the summer of 2017/2018 I bought a few foil print tees. I tend not to wear them for everyday as they feel a bit more special than a regular tree, but I realised they hadn't been worn in a while. Going out with family felt like the perfect time to wear them. They pair so nicely with denim!

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC with silver bracelet stack denim shorts kimono | awayfromtheblue

TeeJeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wore this blue and white outfit to go see Frozen 2 with the kids. They were so excited to see it, but we wanted to wait until we could all go together. Thankfully everyone's days off lined up eventually. It was so strange sitting there in the movie theatre watching the second Frozen movie with my mum, sister and my two kids, as when I saw the first one with my mum and sister I was pregnant with my eldest boy! He loved the songs and danced along in my belly so it's no surprise he still loves the movie now, ha!

I've worn this navy printed kimono with stripes before, it's a great way to print mix especially with the silver foil stripes on this tee. I kept the silver theme with the necklace, bracelet and the silver hardware on the pink mini MAC. Pink is another thing that's frequently worn with this kimono!

The studded gladiator sandals and the distressed denim shorts were simple pieces to wear with the colourful blue and pink outfit.


Last worn: navy printed kimono, circle necklace, silver foil stripe tee, distressed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC.

Especially when paired with the silver glitter Kmart shoes, and the silver cuff. My sister thought the same - she and I matched with our star print tees and black shorts! It's no mystery why I dress the boys the same when my sister and I are still doing it as adults! 😂

As it was a Christmas event at the theme park I added some red accessories for a festive touch of colour. I wore this little red Rebecca Minkoff mini Avery tote bag last time we went too, it's a great size for my wallet and camera and it zips up securely to keep everything safe. The necklace was a nice bit of matchy matchy.

Once again we had a great time at the event, it was awesome!



Last worn: star print tee, red beaded necklace, black denim shorts, silver sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearstar print tee worn two ways, black denim shorts and scarf, silver sneakers and grey dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and matching jeans.




Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print tee is a fun twist on a classic tee. Just like a plain tee, it works well with denim! You can continue the sparkle with other accessories like I have with the shoes and cuff in the second outfit, or just let the tee be all the sparkle and add some bright colourful accessories like red blue or pink.
