Colourful Spring Denim Outfits With White Kimonos and Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two colourful spring outfits with denim and kimonos - a frequently worn outfit combination of mine, especially in the warm weather as it's spring right now in Brisbane. However I didn't love both of these outfits equally.


What I wore:

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

JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono c/o
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Cami: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I really liked the idea of this outfit when I planned it out in my head. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag is something I've frequently worn with these green jeans in the past, I like the two together. I thought this printed cami would be a fun addition, a top I hadn't worn in a while. And the white crochet detail kimono was a nice neutral block colour topper over all the print and colour.

We took advantage of the public holiday and headed out on another walk with the kids, through the mangrove boardwalk along the bay. It was a little breezy at home so I anticipated it being quite cool and windy walking along the shoreline, like previous visits, so I wore the jeans instead of shorts. This was a mistake and I was SO hot, there was oddly no breeze coming off the water and I really wished I hadn't worn jeans! Not the best outfit for the day, despite having liked it so much in the morning.

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, I did wonder a few times if I should have worn jeans instead of shorts! Spent the day with the kids and my mum at the beach, enjoying the sunshine although it was a bit windy and cool in the shade. Was so nice sitting on the sand in the sun though. Even Cooper went in for a paddle into the water and he's not normally a fan of getting wet!

As we didn't have a plan for the day in the morning I'd just picked something comfortable and colourful, with this marigold tee and digital print kimono. I was eager to wear this fun statement necklace again too, it's so light and easy to wear. I did like the black shorts to match the black print on the kimono too, even if I wished they were jeans a couple of times when I got cold! My Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag was great for carrying everything the boys and I needed, although it did end up a little full of sand at the end of the day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos and denim is a style staple in spring! You can add some colour to an outfit with a bright tee, colourful jeans or a brightly patterned kimono itself.

Purple Tees, Printed Kimonos, Denim Shorts And Rebecca Minkoff Julian Bag

Two simple but colourful outfits for hot spring days: denim shorts, Converse and printed kimonos with purple tees. Both of these tees are different shades from the colours in the kimonos, but I think they work well together! The bright blue Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack adds an extra burst of colour to each outfit too.

What I wore:

awayfromblue Instagram | denim shorts lilac tee printed kimono playground outfit with rebecca minkoff julian bag

Jacket: thrifted digital print no label kimono (new purchase)
Necklace: thrifted cream and navy statement flat bead necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Shorts: thrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Wore this on a particularly hot and humid day! We tried to head out early to explore a local bike trail - and with things getting a bit safer with less virus cases around in Queensland I let the kids enjoy the playground along the trail too. We haven't been visiting playgrounds as much as we used to, although they have been open for a long time here. People don't social distance and they can be a bit crowded so I prefer staying away - but the boys enjoyed visiting this old favourite playground again for something different, even if I was constantly getting out the hand sanitiser!

Didn't stay as long as I'd hoped as it was a really hot day, but the kids had fun for a little while.

I expected to spend more time in the playground and less walking along the trail, so I wore my Converse as I didn't need as much support for my knee. I'd thought of wearing this purple tee with the printed kimono when I spotted it in the opshop, even though the print on the kimono is magenta, I thought the purple tee went really nicely with it!

The Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack is always a good choice on days out with the kids as it holds water bottles and snacks well.

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

This tee is kind of between burgundy and purple - it's official colour name is wine but I thought it looked burgundy enough to pair with this red printed kimono, for something just a shade different. it ended up looking significantly different when worn side by side, but I liked the combination enough to give it a go!

Headed out with hubby to go check out bikes with the boys, something we want to buy as a Christmas present but the stock shortages around Australia make that tricky! It was a bit of an unsuccessful shopping trip, so to rescue the day we headed out in the afternoon after it cooled down a little for a walk around a local trail. I'd swapped my Converse I'd worn in the morning to my daggy but much more supportive sneakers, I really need them for this longer trail.

I'd been looking around for a good spot to take a pic when we came across the red flowers on this tree, the perfect location, as it matched the kimono so well! This was a really comfortable outfit for the weekend.
 


How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and tee is a staple outfit for a hot day - and you can add a little more interest to your outfit with a fun printed kimono. Even if the colours in the print don't match the tee you are wearing!

Layering Maxi Dresses For Spring | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear link up, I was making the most of spring weather here in Brisbane and layering up my maxi dresses. One on a slightly cooler spring day, and another for a much warmer day that was almost summer-like!

What I wore:

Jeanswest Chantelle blue printed maxi dress with denim jacket and bright accessories peach and magenta for spring | awayfromblue

navy printed maxi dress with Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram | layering blue printed maxi dress with denim jacket and bright accessories for spring

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: thrifted magenta pink statement beaded necklace
Dress:  Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Dressed up a little more than I usually would for a work from home day! This blue printed jersey maxi dress is so incredibly comfortable and was perfect for the school run, sitting at my desk all day, a zoom fashion launch, and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. A very busy day! I wanted something bright to wear for the zoom TVSN spring/summer fashion catalogue launch. I've been invited to the events before but it's in another state so I couldn't join. With the restrictions and it being online I was able to join this time! Conveniently over lunchtime, I was able to attend in the middle of the work day and ooh and aah over all the pretty fashion pieces (some very out of my budget though!) before diving back into work.

I like pink with this blue maxi dress but I've never worn this particular magenta necklace with it before, and thought this would be a fun statement piece that was suitably bright for the summery designs we were shown. I really liked the combination, and couldn't resist adding even more colour with the little peach Rebecca Minkoff small love bag. I have paired this bag with pink sandals before and I enjoyed the colours together then too. Plus this bag was overdue a wear!

As it was a little cool for a sleeveless maxi dress, especially for the morning school run and afternoon appointment, I layered the denim jacket on top.





What I wore:


Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown | awayfromtheblue

away from blue Instagram | spring maxi dress layered grey v-neck tee layered over Kmart floral maxi dress with carob brown mbmj fran bag

Necklace: thrifted Equip gold and marble station necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus pearl and rose gold bracelet stack
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This was a very fun day! Took the boys for a very overdue haircut and a tiny trim for myself - I am growing my hair out to donate it again but I need to get better at regularly getting it trimmed so it grows in healthier! After the haircut we wandered through the shopping centre to check out the opshop which was preloved book heaven - tables and tables of books. I tried to quickly browse through and pick up a few from authors I've enjoyed reading already, and the kids got a big book haul too!

Had a wonderful picnic lunch as well, enjoying the summery feel of the day!

The only thing I didn't like about the summer-like spring day was that in an effort to try mix up this dress a little I wore the grey tee over it, and it turned into a much too hot and humid day to have added an extra layer! I did like the outfit, just not so much walking around outside in the heat.

Just like the Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag above, this Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag is definitely overdue a wear! I used to have a little collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs bags but this is the only one I have left now - and every time I use it I love it, it was nice to get it out again and I loved how it fit everything including all of our water bottles and some snacks inside. Have been using it more since, it was a good decision to get it out my handbag cupboard for this day!



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress is easy to layer up in spring! Try a denim jacket over the top for a cooler day or a simple tee on a warmer day.

Weekday Wear Link Up! Stripe Tee Dresses, Converse, and Pink Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two very similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, even though I wore them a week apart! Pairing striped tee dresses with Converse, pink Rebecca Minkoff bags and statement necklaces for easy working from home and school run style.

What I wore:

Kmart white striped tee dress Converse Chucks neon pink mini MAc bag statement necklace thrifted style | awayfromblue

navy white striped tee dress  Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | working from home outfit stripe tee dress bold accessories statement necklace neon pink bag

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace (new purchase)
Dress: thrifted Kmart white and navy long sleeve stripe tee dress (new purchase)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Was excited to wear this dress for the first time, and a slightly cooler spring day was the perfect opportunity! I'd just bought it at the opshop the week before for $1. The necklace was thrifted in the same trip for $2 as well and they work really nicely together. The Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was a preloved eBay find at just $29.75 so that leaves the Converse shoes as the most expensive piece in my outfit! I bought them over a decade ago though so don't remember exactly how much they cost.

The striped dress was so stretchy and comfortable for a day of working from home and doing the school run - and it looked nice and presentable for a zoom call too!

Necklace: Jeanswest Taki necklace (c/o)
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This navy striped tee dress is the reason I knew I had to buy the white striped tee dress! I really like this one and while it's a thicker fabric and so worn more on cooler days it's a firm favourite of mine. Really similar to the white one above too! Just a different hem and shorter sleeves, and of course a darker colour.

I accessorised this in a very similar way, with a pink Rebecca Minkoff bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody this time, and another statement necklace. Again this was a work from home outfit, as well as doing the school run and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Another comfortable outfit for sitting at my desk all day working after running around dropping the kids to school.


How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee dress is a classic and comfortable option! For days with the kids, pick one with a longer hem like the white one in the first outfit, or a dipped hem at the back like the second one. Because stripes go with everything you can add some fun statement accessories like a bright pink bag or a layered necklace.

Printed Shorts and Cardigans For Spring With Blue Bags

I was so excited when it started warming up for spring as I'd wanted to try a few shorts and cardigan outfits! September brought some very warm weather with it though, so I haven't been able to wear this combination as much as I'd like. I did enjoy wearing it when I could though, just a handful of times. A cardigan is a nice way to add more colour to a grey tee and printed shorts outfit.

What I wore:

mustard cardigan with grey tee blue printed culottes shorts teal balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India with navy printed shorts | awayfromtheblue

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

These shorts were a Kmart clearance find in January 2019 but this is only their 6th wear. I've done a 30 wears post on another pair of blue printed shorts before, so I have lots of ideas for how to wear these and I'm sure they will get more wear this spring and summer. I really like wearing yellow with them, even though this mustard cardigan doesn't match the lemon print on the shorts I liked the two different yellows together.

The cardigan added a fun pop with the grey tee too, and while the blue wooden beaded necklace matched some of the colours in the print, the teal Balenciaga first bag was another pop of colour that I really like wearing with yellows!

After the school run the little one and I went to the local park for a little scoot around, and ran a few errands before school pickup and then sports in the evening.

Necklace: thrifted blue statement beaded necklace (new purchase)
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This was a very strange day, weather-wise! It was so windy in the morning we decided to take the kids to the park to fly their kite. However when the wind wasn't blowing it was really warm and sunny. I debated on shorts or jeans and in the end decided a cardigan and printed shorts combo would be perfect instead. I really enjoyed wearing this, this cardigan was nice to block some of the wind but not so thick that I felt overheated in the sun.

I like blue and purple together, so with the monochromatic grey tee and black pull on printed shorts I thought I'd add some navy blue accessories. The recently thrifted beaded necklace pairs really nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag, and I like the way the navy works with the purple cardigan.

Nice comfortable outfit for a quiet Saturday.



How You Can Wear It:

Early spring days where it's warm enough for bare legs or bare arms but not both together is perfect weather for a cute pair of printed shorts and a light cardigan. Adding a cardigan is a good way to bring more colour to your outfit too.

Spring Outfits: Skinny Jeans, Converse and 3/4 Sleeve tops

Making the most of Brisbane's spring weather and starting to leave the layers behind! Before it heats up too much I reach frequently for my skinny jeans and Converse. It was nice to leave the scarves and extra layers behind on these warmer days, although I did need to add a denim jacket on a particularly windy spring day!

Both of these outfits feature a bright statement piece too.

What I wore:

blue and pink outfit with neon leopard print skinny jeans wrap top denim jacket converse | awayfromtheblue

pink leopard print jeans with  Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram  | pink and blue skinny leopard print jeans outfit with wrap top matching accessories

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I haven't worn these fun pink leopard print jeans in over a year! I'm trying to stop passing over "special" things in my wardrobe and just wear them anyway, even if I do feel a little overdressed. We didn't have much on this day, the school run and a little walk around the neighbourhood with my youngest while my eldest was at school, but I felt these jeans were overdue a wear!

They do make me happy each time I wear them, and I have worn them with this wrap top before. They look so good with blue! As it was a little windier than expected and threatening rain I added the denim jacket on top - the rolled up sleeves were the perfect length with this 3/4 sleeve wrap top.

The accessories were matchy-matchy too with the blue bag matching the blue wrap top and denim jacket, and the pink and gold necklace matching the leopard print jeans and the gold hardware on the bag! Really liked this outfit, even if it felt a little overdressed in the playground!

grey jeans with Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold with skinny jeans and converse for spring


Necklace: thrifted pearl and heart charm long necklace
Dress: Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold
Pants: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Again I wore my Converse and skinny jeans, this classic neutral grey pair this time. The Converse were probably a mistake though, after the school run the little one and I headed off to check out a new trail and while much shorter than I can manage, the ground was very uneven and rough which was a lot of pressure for my injured knee. Probably should have worn my ugly but supportive walking shoes instead! And should have worn some mozzie repellent too, we both got bitten like crazy!

Did like the way the Converse looked with this outfit though, and the grey skinny jeans with the black and white Chucks were great neutrals to let the marigold orange top pop. I like the way the skinny jeans balance out all the extra soft, cosy and slouchy volume of the dolman top.

To add just a little bit more colour I wore my green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag with this - it really pops against the orange top!



How You Can Wear It:
Skinny jeans and Converse is a mum staple! For something a little different you can try introducing a statement piece, like printed jeans or a bright citrus top.

2 Ways To Wear Kmart Amber Tiered Midi Dress | Weekday Wear Link Up

Another new purchase from Kmart! This dress was a delayed impulse buy. I'd spotted it on the way out of Kmart with my sister after some birthday present shopping. I kept thinking about it so next time I put in a Kmart order with some things for the boys I added this dress too, as well as a marigold top I've already shared. For the start of spring it works so well with denim jackets!

What I wore:

Kmart amber tiered midi dress for spring with denim jacket and printed scarf nylon backpack | away from blue

amber dress with Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | denim jacket orange midi dress and cobalt blue backpack casual spring layers

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this scarf with the dress the first time I wore it, the blue heart print works so well with the amber of the dress. It turned into such a warm day and I didn't need both the denim jacket and scarf after school drop off, but since I'd forgotten mozzie repellent for our little walk around our fave trail I decided to keep the jacket on and keep my arms safe from bites! Did end up taking off both the denim jacket and scarf for school pickup though.

As we spent most of the day out on the trail I just used the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack as my bag all day. It's a great bag for holding water bottles and snacks for out on the trail. It popped beautifully with the bright blue against the orange dress too.

BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, despite the squinting from the sun 😂 Wore this for Father's Day as I was so eager to wear this dress again quite quickly! Stuck with the denim jacket topper, although picked a darker blue one this time, and I really liked this combination. As it was a warmer day I went with the tassel necklace instead of a scarf, and as there were no extra long walks required I picked Converse instead of my walking shoes. I loved the way Converse looks with this dress, I need to wear it again with Converse in the future!

Again I went with a blue bag with this, my little sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC the boys got me for Mother's Day. Did consider going matchy-matchy with a turquoise bag to match the tassel necklace, but I really liked this greyish blue against the orange dress.


How You Can Wear It:

A bright tiered midi dress is perfect for spring, especially in orange! It's easily layered with a denim jacket - and blue bags are a great accessory choice!
