Cotton On "The One" Tees and Soft Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

Last Christmas my mum got me a pink "The One" tee from Cotton On. Since then I've added quite a few more to my wardrobe! I love the range of colours, the fact that they are often on sale, soft, made with 20% recycled cotton and wash and wear well. With working from home and no longer needing to go into an office I'm embracing tees almost every day so these have been good purchases for me! I picked up these two clay coloured ones in the Cotton On sale for boxing day, reduced to $7.99 each. Plus I had a $10 rewards voucher so I ended up getting both together for just $5.98! Bargain! With the summer heat, I wore them for the first time with some cute soft pull-on shorts.

Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a working from home day, a rather stressful first day back after 4 weeks of leave over Christmas and new years. I don't usually dress up for a work from home day, sticking with loungewear or pyjamas but I was also spending time with my mum and sister in the afternoon, since our 3 day lockdown was thankfully lifted at the end of the 3 days! Simple shorts and tee for a busy day full off meetings while trying to get my brain back into work gear and catch up on everything I missed while I was away.

I really like colour of this tee. "Washed red clay" is a good description and it went so nicely with the black printed shorts, another summer staple for me. I wasn't sure the almond colour of the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag would work with this at first, but when I tried it I thought it was a good neutral with the reddish tee. I didn't need to carry much so it was a good bag choice!

Why I wore it:

I wore this outfit during Brisbane's 3 day lockdown, before the outfit above. While I was mostly at home, we were allowed to leave the house for exercise, so after watching the premier's morning update on restrictions and case numbers I took the chance to be the one to take the kids and Cooper out for a walk along a neighbourhood trail, and give hubby a bit of quiet at home. With the new mask guidelines I did have to wear a mask the entire time I was out the house, which was not the most comfortable thing on a walk on a humid day, but we weren't out long. We saw so many other masked dog walkers trying to get out before the day heated up too much too. Thankfully the boys understood the need to not pat all the dogs and try keep our distance. Cooper of course was too excited to see other dogs, but we have a pretty long leash to let them do their little doggy meet and greet 😂

With the terracotta stripes on this tee I wasn't sure if it would bee too Christmas-y with the olive shorts, but I think the stripes are small enough and on the terracotta side enough that it was a nice pairing together. I may repeat this around December though and make it more festive with more red! As I didn't need to carry much, just my phone and hand sanitiser with me on the walk, this little Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag was perfect, and everything was comfortable enough to wear when relaxing with the kids back at home too. Simple and comfortable for a very quiet Sunday at home.


Last wornolive embroidered shorts, navy and gold beaded necklace, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above).

Other ways to wearolive embroidered shorts and kimono, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi dress.
 



How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and tee is the most basic of wardrobe staples. For something a little different you can try adding a print, like I have with the printed shorts in the first outfit or the striped tee in the second outfit. So easy to do but changes up a staple outfit a little.

White Printed Tees and Soft Shorts With Cross Body Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up

White printed tees and soft pull on shorts made easy summer outfits for the weeks before Christmas, as I wore these back in December.  Feeling the humidity shorts and a tee was the simplest choice!


What I wore:

white graphic city skyline tee with Kmart navy lemon print culotte shorts and pink bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag in fig | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | graphic tee and navy printed kmart shorts summer outfit with pink jean mac bag


Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 


Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a mixed day! Spent the morning working from home but had to log off early in the afternoon to take my son to an emergency appointment. Sadly it was decided during the appointment that we had no choice other than to book him in for surgery the week before Christmas. He's had a December hospital stay before as a baby and thankfully this was a shorter stay than that, but still not the best news so close to Christmas.  Luckily he recovered well and we were able to do a lot of festive activities at home, and our plan was for a quieter December anyway this year.

I really liked this outfit despite the mixed bag of the day.  The graphic print tee is one I picked up in Primark on our Europe trip back in 2019 and I thought it would go well with the floral print shorts. I've worn it with prints before, it's a good tee for that as the graphic isn't too big.

The pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag has been worn with these shorts before too, despite being a different shade of pink from the pastel in the print of the Kmart shorts I think they work well together.

Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag


Why I wore it:

Wanted to try these olive shorts with a little bit of pink and the abstract blush shapes on this printed tee was the perfect small way to wear the combination. With the lighter blue shapes in the print too I decided to try matching that with the sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC crossbody bag. I didn't need to carry much as we just had the school run, a walk around our favourite trail and then a couple of quick errands to run, a really easy day. It was pretty hot and humid though - there was no-one else on the trail, wisely avoiding the heat, and I'd wished I'd brought my water bottle with me! My son had his of course.


How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and tee is a classic, failsafe, mum-friendly outfit for a hot summer day. You can mix it up a little by trying a printed tee, it's just as easy to wear. And you can match other pieces in your outfit to the colours in the print for simple accessory selection too, like I have done with the bags in these outfits.

Christmas Outfits: Casual and Dressy | Weekday Wear Linkup

A bit of a bumper post for the Weekday Wear Linkup today, showing you three outfits I wore over Christmas. We were very lucky to be able to spend time with our families over Christmas, with few restrictions in place here in Queensland. We haven't had any cases of coronavirus in the community in our state for over 100 days so our Christmas celebrations went on as normal, even if we had a quieter December and skipped a few other events to ensure we would all be healthy and well for the most important days! I definitely didn't take it for granted this year, with virus outbreaks in NSW state making me wonder if our plans may have had to change, and my son in hospital for an operation the week before. We were very blessed to be able to celebrate as planned.

So today I'm sharing what I wore for Christmas Day and Christmas Eve with my side of the family, as well as what I wore to spend Boxing Day at hubby's family's delayed Christmas celebration. All wardrobe oldies, with the exception of a couple new bags I got for Christmas!


What I wore for Christmas day:

Jeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell grecian column style Christmas Day Outfit with gold leo envelope clutch champagne | awayfromblue

mint dress and mixed metal bracelet stack with Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch in champagne gold | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram Christmas Day outfit grecian maxi dress rebecca minkoff leo envelope clutch in champagne gold accessories


Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Dress: Jeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell (c/o)
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage silver charm bracelet and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle


Why I wore it:

This was my outfit for Christmas day itself. I was extremely excited to be able to wear my new bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch in champagne. It was massively reduced in the stocktake sales in June, so I bought one for myself and a few others as gifts, thinking as things were starting to get safer we would be back to regular and frequent parties for Christmas and New Year, ha! At over $100 off, I figured it was worth getting. Of course, with no big festive parties this will be the only time I wear it this year but it was fun to wear for Christmas day and I hope I have more chance to go out and use this clutch next year.

I knew I was going to wear an existing dress from my wardrobe for Christmas, I've had new ones the past few years so it was time to give one I already owned some love. Couldn't decide between this eggshell one or another purple printed one, but went with this dress in the end as I thought it matched my red glitter Christmas manicure better. Although I've had it a while I've never worn it for Christmas day before! Paired it with some gold accessories to compliment the champagne gold of the clutch. It was good to get all dressed up, we usually all get dressed up for church on Christmas day and although we didn't go to church this year we continued the tradition of dressing up.


Last worngold chandelier earrings, Grecian maxi dress, studded sandals. First time I've worn the Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch.

Other ways to wearGrecian maxi dress for a birthday party, studded sandals and shorts.

What I wore for Christmas Eve:

striped maxi skirt with Fashion Scarf Girl burgundy foil reindeer and tree print Christmas scarf rebecca minkoff mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl burgundy foil reindeer and tree print Christmas scarf (tied on bag)
Earrings: Colette Ciao Bella glitter ball drop earrings
Tee: festive glitter Santa tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Christmas ribbon bracelet and Polka Luka resin bangles in red and teal
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I wore this the day before, on Christmas eve. Every year, my family get together for a relaxed catch up before the big day. We do crafts, eat lots of snacks, listen to Christmas music, make and decorate cookies, and watch a festive movie. Which by popular demand from the kids has been the Polar Express for the past few years 😂 It's so fun to spend time together and enjoy some quiet time before the present madness of Christmas day!

Had to wear my traditional Santa tee of course, and a comfortable maxi skirt for lounging around. It was a really humid day so added the burgundy and silver foil scarf on my metallic mini MAC bag instead of wearing it round my neck. Mum got me this scarf so I was eager to wear it and figure out a way to make it work for the humid day. Thought it was a fun festive touch with the outfit.






What I wore for Boxing Day Christmas celebration:

Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus rose gold and faux pearl bracelet stack
Bag: Chloe periwinkle small Paraty

Why I wore it:

And on the third day of Christmas...the in-laws decided to do Christmas on boxing day instead. It was nice to not have to try travel around on Christmas day itself and the kids loved another day of presents! Christmas at the in laws is a lot more casual than in my family, and a much shorter gathering, but again I went with a maxi dress. This is an old favourite and I've hit 30 wears with it so I'll need to so a ways to wear post with it soon.

Something not too formal but not too casual, a maxi dress is just right! Wore my new bag with it - a massive thank you to my friend who texted me about this bag after I'd been telling her I was thinking of a Chloe Paraty for Christmas, she stumbled across it and knew it would be perfect. My husband was very pleased to see that this one was a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the other Paraty bag I'd had my eye on too 😂 so it was my Christmas gift from him and the boys. I just love the colour and it pairs so nicely with the navy printed maxi dress. The earrings are new, a Christmas present from my mum and although they are a different shade of blue I thought it complimented the navy dress well and the gold works with the necklace, sandals and hardware on the Chloe Paraty bag.

Subtle Red and Green Festive Summer Floral Duster Outfits

Hope you have a very merry Christmas tomorrow! Getting in one final post with more red and green outfits for you. I've had fun wearing this colour combo on a few days in December and this Christmas week has been a good time to share them.


What I wore:

Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono with black and white peplum tank bermuda shorts outfit subtle red and green festive style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag with navy floral duster kimono | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | black and white peplum tee Bermuda shorts outfit with red printed floral kimono and green crossbody bag

Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Tank: Kmart black sleeveless frill hem peplum tank
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda shorts
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag


Why I wore it:

When I thought about trying out some red and green outfits for December I wanted to ease into it as it's a very Christmassy combo and I wasn't sure I could pull it off! Picking a printed kimono full of a few different colours, one of which is red, and accessorising with a little green bag, seemed like a good way to try it out! I also wanted to wear my newly thrifted shoes for the first time. I've shared about them before, picking them up at the opshop for just $3. I spent a little time cleaning them up as they were very worn and yellowed, but I was pleased to have got them looking a bit more presentable and being able to take them out for a spin on this day. 

While the red and green combination is really subtle here the kimono is quite colourful and statement making, so I picked a simple black and white outfit to wear underneath with the peplum tank and white Bermuda shorts. They were also a thrift find! While the rose gold heart isn't an exact match with the gold hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag I thought it was a close enough combination to go nicely together.

Was a nice quiet day - a little opshopping in the morning after the school run, and then sports in the evening after school pick up.



(Hoping for another handbag shaped present under the tree this year... 😉)





What I wore:

Jeanswest Delilah Long Line Kimono in Green Floral with peplum tee denim shorts Adidas superstar and burgundy bag subtle festive outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy with green floral duster | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | jeanswest delilah green floral duster kimono with peplum tee denim shorts burgundy bag subtle festive outfit for summer

Jacket: Jeanswest Delilah Long Line Kimono in Green Floral
Necklace: Lovisa silver love knitted heart pendant necklace
Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy


Why I wore it:

I'm not entirely sure this combination worked with the green duster kimono and the burgundy bag. I didn't want to go too bright with one of my more cherry red bags. I thought this burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag would be a more subtle pairing but it wasn't as Christmassy as I hoped. Worked out nicely for the day though! Had an extremely busy day at work as I tried to wrap things up as much as possible to allow myself the opportunity to leave a little earlier and take my son out after school pickup to celebrate completing the year of school. Unfortunately, we realised that my plan to go grab ice creams was a fairly common one and we had to wait in a massive line as it seemed quite a few different parents had the same idea! 😂 The ice creams were definitely worth it though!


How You Can Wear It:


Red and green is a very festive combination, but doesn't have to be too bold. Try introducing one of the colours as an accessory like a bag as I have in these outfits, for a nod to December without feeling overdressed.






However you are celebrating Christmas this year, I hope you get to experience God's peace, comfort and joy. Feeling extremely blessed with no COVID cases in the community here in Queensland for 100 days that allows us to have Christmas with our family as we always do, I know others are not as lucky. This scheduled post will go live as we are spending Christmas eve laughing together, watching a Christmas movie, eating delicious food, making and decorating cookies and trying some festive crafts. Have a wonderful Christmas even if it doesn't look like you had hoped.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Festive Red and Green Maxi Skirt Outfits With Navy

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up post I'm sharing two red and green maxi skirt outfits I wore recently. In an effort to be a little more festive for December I decided to wear some red and green maxi skirt outfits this summer. Nothing too "costume-y" but both a lot of fun to wear. Even if I wore one of them on the weekend rather than on a week day!


What I wore:

red green and navy summer Christmas party outfit maxi skirt and frill sleeve tee, emerald bag | awayfromblue

red printed maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | red printed maxi skirt with green accessories for Christmas with navy frill sleeve tee


Earrings: Colette shadow dancer geo circle tassel drop earrings
Necklace: Ruby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Ruby frill sleeve Ric Rac detailed tee in deep iris
Skirtthrifted Billabong 'Don't Think Of It' bikini red printed maxi skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers (new purchase)
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs howlite, hematite and red beaded bracelets with rose gold bead bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag


Why I wore it:

This was such a fun outfit! It's not the first time I've tired this red maxi skirt with green but I really liked the combination! It does feel so festive, with the green in the necklace and the green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag and this red maxi skirt it was perfect for a day of Christmas parties! The kids wore some of their Christmas tees too. We had a party with some of my son's classmates in the morning after swimming lessons, and then another Christmas party in the afternoon with our neighbours. Socially distancing at them both of course, although we hadn't had any cases in over 84 days in Queensland. It was nice to have it feeling almost like normal again!

I've worn this navy frill sleeve tee with the red maxi skirt before, I thought it was a nice neutral base with the bright statement necklace and the green bag. It was also a very comfortable option for the hot and humid day, and although we got a little wet when the storm blew in under the gazebo in the afternoon and made us retreat into the neighbour's garage, we had a great day despite the weather!

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Bag

Tank: Jeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Polka Luka resin bangles in red and teal
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag


Why I wore it:

This is a more subtle green and red outfit than the one above, again with the little Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag, this time pairing it with the red in the fern print of the tank. I played up the green a bit more with the accessories, the green beaded statement necklace is such a good pairing with the green bag and the green and red resin bangles continued the colour scheme.

Again I added navy, this time a thrifted side split maxi skirt. It's such a nice light option for a hot day, even if we did spend most of it inside in the aircon. Took the kids out to the library, shopping for our last Christmas presents, and to mail off our letters to Santa. The kids had me write one too...Santa was kind enough to write back!

I thought the red and green colours would be fun, if a bit extra for a day of Christmas shopping. I dressed the kids in one of their Christmas tees too as I went overboard buying them this year and need to look for excuses to have them wear them, ha! We weren't the only ones festively attired at the shops that day though.



How You Can Wear It:


Red and green is a good festive colour combo to try in an outfit in December! To get into the mood for a Christmas party or maybe a little more subtly for a day of Christmas shopping, it's something you can have a lot of fun with!

Colourful Tees and Blue Prints With Rebecca Minkoff Pink Jean MAC Crossbody Bag

In an effort to get through more of my outfit backlog before Christmas, (as I feel weird posting Christmas themed outfits in the middle of January), another Wednesday post! Still won't be a regular occurrence but it's good to be able to do this now and then when I have gotten dressed most days of the week and have an overabundance of outfits! Simple summer outfits with tees and my little pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag I shared in my last post too.


What I wore:

pink cotton on the one tee with navy printed culotte shorts rebecca minkoff jean MAC | awayfromblue

blue printed shorts and Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig  | awayfromblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | pink cotton on tee kmart printed navy culotte short rebecca minkoff jean mac


NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 

Why I wore it:

This was a long but fun day! We had to get a few things crossed off our Christmas shopping list so we headed out to the outlets. It was really productive and we got almost everything we went to buy, and I even managed to pick up some adorable little gold dishes to use for our Christmas table centrepiece. Even though I'm not hosting Christmas this year I like to decorate our table for December, and this year the boys and I painted some pinecones and covered them in glitter to use them on our dining table.

There are 3 different shades of pink in this outfit with the berry toned tee, pastel pink in the print of the shorts, and almost mauve pink of the Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag. But I think it all worked so well together! I wasn't sure if the tee and bag would be too similar at first but I really enjoyed this combination and it was so comfortable for a long day of shopping at some very crowded stores.






What I wore:

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 

Why I wore it:


I really liked the colour combination of this outfit too! I like blue and pink and blue and purple together, this outfit has all of that and I even added another shade of pink with the blush necklace. I think the two shades of pink worked well with the lilac tee and I've worn this navy stripe maxi skirt with the purple tee before, it's a great pairing.

After the school run we had a quick errand to run - dropping off some donations at the opshop which of course turned into picking up more things 😂 Got some more Christmas decorations and a few more books for the kids and I. After that went to more shops to try and get more Christmas shopping done, picking up a few things we hadn't been able to get at the outlets the weekend before.


How You Can Wear It:

A pink bag goes with so many other colours! Navy is a good pairing but you can also try things like purple as I have in the second outfit, or different shades of pink like in the first outfit.

Tiered Kmart Dresses and Pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC Bag: Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing some outfits where I was making the most of the warmer days with simple tiered dress outfits, accessorised with my latest purchase, the Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag. It's working so well in my wardrobe I'm kinda wishing I'd bought it earlier - an older style, it was on the David Jones site for a while before I caved and snapped it up when it was further reduced. It goes so well with both of these dresses, even though they are different lengths and colours!

Why I wore it:

Wore this to catch up with a friend I hadn't spoken to in a while after the school run. I dressed up a little to take advantage of the kid free occasion, with my eldest at work and my youngest watching a movie at home while his dad worked from home. It was nice to get out the house by myself for a bit for an hour, even if I probably overdressed for the rest of the day. I felt especially overdressed when I took my son for a haircut after the school run!

Added some fancy dangly earrings to this cute Kmart floral maxi dress I'm still not quite at 30 wears with yet, and a couple of bracelets that hadn't been worn in a while, like this Hermes clic clac and my little pearl bracelets.

Last time I tried this coral dress with a pink bag I really liked the combination, so I gave it a go again with this Rebecca Minkoff fig Jean MAC crossbody bag. I wasn't sure it was the best colour combination, but I'm glad I gave it a go for something different!

Why I wore it:

Anticipating another extremely hot day I'd planned to wear this little black tiered sundress for the school run, working from home, and taking my son to an appointment in the evening. Even though it wasn't as warm as I thought it would be, this was a great outfit to wear, so comfortable all day!

With the black dress and black New Balance sneakers I felt this pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC was a fun accessory again. I really liked the way it popped with the black dress! I've worn this dress with pink bags a few times and I always really enjoy the combination.

How You Can Wear It:

A strappy tiered sundress in any length is a good way to beat the heat on a hot summer day! You can dress it up with a bracelet stack and statement earrings or dress it down with a casual pair of sneakers.
