Blue Knits, Black Jeans, Magenta Edie Bag, and Face Masks

Two very similar outfits with blue knits, black skinny jeans and my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag. Oh and some face masks too!

Queensland had a bit of a shock in July when some people lied about where they had been when they returned to the state (to avoid mandatory quarantine) and brought the virus with them from an outbreak in another state. It resulted in our first community cases in months. Previously the cases in Queensland had been contained to people returning to the state and doing their mandatory quarantine and not interacting with the public.

Since our suburb was then made a "restricted area" due to the higher than usual chance of catching the virus, one of our big supermarket brands requested that people wear a face mask in store. Not requiring, just requesting. As I already bought a few masks I decided I'd wear them when I shopped. I usually do all my grocery shopping online now, but with the cases rising in Victoria and the fear of more cases locally, not everything has been in stock and so I've had to go to the supermarket more than I'd like.

I took some pics while wearing the masks as although it may be controversial in some places I think there is no harm in putting on an extra piece of pretty fabric for a quick 15 minute shop to pick up essentials, if it makes the staff and other shoppers feel better. It makes me feel like I'm doing my bit too, although hopefully cases continue to stay low here and I won't be needing to wear masks outside the grocery store!

Sweater: thrifted blue Mossman knit jumper
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a mixed day! I'd got my online grocery order earlier in the week but it didn't have everything I needed. One of the things missing was a snack I'd planned to take as a "bring a plate" to socially distant drinks later that evening, so I had to go out to the grocery store that morning when I realised I otherwise had nothing to bring! My baking skills aren't quite good enough to inflict them on non family members yet!

Didn't want to get dressed up just for the evening so wore the same thing all day - this great bright blue cropped knit that works so well with these high waisted Nobody Denim skinny jeans. It's not so good with low waisted jeans! Added a little extra interest with the printed Fashion Scarf Girl scarf and my pink and gold statement earrings. The earrings made my first mask wearing a littler trickier than expected but I got there in the end.

I'd wanted to wear the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag as it is such a fun pop with the blue knit, and I was pleased when I realised that this mask almost matched it!

Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
Top: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit to the one above with the blue knit and black jean combo, although with a warmer morning I didn't need a scarf as I wore this a week later. I wore this pretty gold and marble pendant necklace instead of a scarf, the pinks and purples went nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag even though the necklace is gold and the hardware on the bag is silver.

As I wasn't wearing a scarf I thought I'd wear these printed skinny jeans to add an extra touch of interest - they are really fun but sometimes can be tricky to wear if I try add other prints with them. They work better, like here, as the statement print in the outfit. I did wish I'd worn a scarf in the afternoon when the wild weather blew in, but it was a much warmer morning than expected.

Stopped by my favourite photo taking spot after the school drop off before yet another Woolies trip, so I wore this pretty floral mask. Thankfully even though things have been out of stock when I've made online orders I've been able to get the things I needed in stores when I visit.


How You Can Wear It:

Black and blue look great together! Try a blue knit with black skinny jeans. For an extra pop of colour, try pink accessories too - they go so well with blue and stand out against black jeans.

Monochrome Stripe Tank and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Bright Accessories

Adding some colour to neutral outfits with bright accessories: my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag and blue and purple scarves. I really liked both of these outfits, I need to wear things like this more often! I've been trying to introduce more colour to my outfits lately but there's something so simple about neutral outfits and adding pops of colours with bright accessories.

BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta 

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! Didn't exactly keep me as warm as I'd hoped in the morning though, the three-quarter length sleeves on the cardigan were a bit chilly for the school drop off. Of course by the school pick up in the afternoon I was feeling like the cardigan and scarf were a bit too warm together!

This Louis Vuitton monogram shawl is so cosy and warm. I really like the pop of colour it gives to the striped tank, and pink and blue being a go-to favourite colour of mine I liked the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag with this cobalt blue too.

Was a quiet day at home most of the time, aside from the school pickup and drop off and grabbing another loaf of bread on the way home.

Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta 

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, this outfit felt really warm, all day! I felt a bit overdressed in this thick knitted cardigan as we walked around the shopping centre in the morning after school drop off. We had to try find a pair of shoes for my youngest boy, but thankfully he liked the first pair we tried on. We went to a proper kids shoe store which is not normally where I'd buy the kids shoes, as they ruin them quite quickly, but they had a sale on so it wasn't too bad. We'd had no luck at Kmart, Target or Big W as they are all suffering from low stock levels because of the virus impacts to imports. Although I think the Target stocking issues may partly be due to them closing down so many stores as well? (Our Aussie brands are different from the US ones and so our Kmarts are taking over closing Target stores). Just gives me more reasons to stay home though - not a lot to browse through in the shops!

This was a very dark outfit with the black tank and cardigan, and the grey jeans. I think that the purple scarf and the magenta bag were just the right touches of colour with it, and purple and pink is another colour combination I really enjoy.



How You Can Wear It:

Bright bags and scarves add the perfect touch of colour to a neutral layered winter outfit. For a little extra pop you can pick two different colours for your accessories like I have here.

3 Blue Dress and Pink Bag Outfits: Weekday Wear Linkup

Bit of a long post for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, sharing 3 outfits I wore recently with blue dresses and pink bags. Both things I have a lot of in my wardrobe, they pair so perfectly together!

A dress is an easy not too formal but not too casual outfit for a training day too, and that's why I wore these outfits to a training course for work.


What I wore:

 Jeanswest 'Chelsea' boho peasant navy printed dress with tassel earrings pink Balenciaga city bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | blue boho peasant dress with pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag
Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn this dress and bag together before when I hunted through my blog archive. Both much loved pieces, I was sure I'd worn them together before!

I think the casual boho peasant style of the printed dress works really nicely with the slouchy pink Balenciaga city bag. The colour combo is great too!

Unfortunately these are not the shoes I wore. I've been taking pics in the morning with the shoes I've been wearing in the office and commuting in my daggy old sneakers to try reduce the pain on my knee. A frantic realisation we were out of bread for the kids breakfasts and a dash to the shops before breakfast and then trying to make it into the city on time, I'd forgotten to pick up the bag with these shoes to change into. Thankfully I made it to the course on time but I felt a bit out of place with the sneakers!


Last worn: boho printed dress, navy tassel earrings, tan ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag.

Other ways to wearboho printed dress and sneakers, tan ballet flats and jeans, Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyboho printed dress in second trimester, tan ballet flats in second trimester, Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag at 37 weeks.

Necklace: silver ball multi chain long necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Thankfully I remembered the bag with my shoes in it this time so I was able to wear these lovely ballet flats during the day! I really like the way all the accessories matched with the silver multi strand necklace, metallic ballet flats, and silver hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

This blue Paisley print sheath dress is a firm favourite too and was what I wore to the first day of training, as I wasn't sure about the dress code. Something I've worn for important meetings and to be dressed down for casual Friday, this dress is so versatile! I like the way the pastel pink Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag went with the Paisley print too.

Belt: Forever New 'orchid petal' skinny belt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!, and use code REAL for an extra 20% off!)

Why I wore it:

Another blue dress and another pink bag! This isn't even all my blue dresses or pink bags, I really do have a few! I liked the way this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag popped with the navy Ikat print dress.

Like the other blue dresses above, this is a favourite and I even took it to Europe with me last year.

Rather than wear a statement necklace I went with my Tiffany diamond necklace and the silver leaf earrings which are a perfect statement on their own, and added a little extra colour with the skinny lilac belt. This belt is an old one I rediscovered after finally finding the box of belts I'd hidden away in pregnancy a while back. Unfortunately being pleather, being stored in a box for years in the Queensland heat and humidity has not been kind to it and it actually disintegrated and snapped when I unbuckled it at the end of the day. Such a shame!

Blue Printed Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Blue and pink look so good together and as you can see in each of these outfits, you can pair any shade of blue with any shade of pink! Using bright accessories like these pink bags is a fun way to try out the colour combo and shows you how versatile a pink bag can be, it's easy to wear with colourful printed pieces and not just neutrals!

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:

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.

3 Ways To Wear a Ribbon Scarf (and a Giveaway!)

A special giveaway today! You know I love my scarves so I was very happy when Liberty contacted me to offer me one of her ribbon scarves. I picked the pink one but all are beautiful! Despite my large scarf collection, I've never tried a ribbon scarf before, and I really liked this one.

With help from Shelbee and Liberty, I'm sharing 3 ways you can wear a ribbon scarf, plus how you can win one of your own! There are 3 to giveaway, one for each blog!


What I wore:

BlouseJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I wore this back in September and a longer sleeved top with a scarf and tights may have been a bit overkill for spring (especially with the higher than average temperatures in Brisbane!) but it was my first day back at work after being sick and I wanted to be cosy and warm.

With the neutral black henley top, ballet flats and grey pencil skirt, I used my accessories to add a little colour. This magenta Rebecca Minkoff quilted Edie bag goes so well with the different shades of pink in the ribbon scarf. The scarf kept me cosy and made me smile through the day with the bright colour.

Exactly what you need when starting to feel better - something comfortable to wear and some colourful accessories to make you smile!


Last worn: black henley, grey pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearblack henley and a-line skirt, grey pencil skirt with navy and purple, black ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and sundress.

I like how Shelbee matched the autumnal colours in her ribbon scarf with her outfit, the earrings are the perfect match and the animal print shirt compliments the scarf so well. Such a great neutral outfit! See more of Shelbee's outfit on her blog.




Liberty is wearing the beautiful neutral brown ribbon scarf with the cutest teal dress! As it's autumn for her she's layered up a little to keep cosy. The neutral scarf is a perfect accompaniment with the bold teal dress, and works well with the black pieces in her outfit too. Read more about her outfit on Liberty's blog.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Jackets, Grey Tees, Pencil Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Taking advantage of the warmer spring weather in Brisbane and just wearing some light layers to the office. I wore two of my textured jackets with basic grey tees and black pencil skirts and added some colourful scarves for a brighter Weekday Wear Linkup! Even the backdrops are colourful, I stopped by the Brisbane Arcade Spring flower show to get some pretty Instagram pics!

What I wore:

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist wearing all the pink accessories! This magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag really pops against a plain grey tee and black pencil skirt outfit, and I continued the pink theme on with the tassel earrings and the striped scarf. I like how the earrings matched the tassels on the scarf, and the magenta stripes compliment the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag nicely.

With all the colour and the classic tweed textured jacket, I felt this outfit was dressed up enough for a quiet day at work with few face-to-face meetings. Sometimes I have more virtual meetings than face-to-face ones, especially with the new project I'm on.


Last worn: tweed blazer, blush tassel earrings, grey v-neck tee, black pencil skirt, Walnut Melbourne Ava ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. First time I've shared the scarf on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Scarf: Target Selena lightweight woven scarf in summer stripe
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another textured jacket - this jacquard one has a metallic thread running though it so it feels a little more 'dressy' option and worked perfectly to make the slouchy and comfy grey tunic and pencil skirt outfit more suitable for a day in the office.

The threading on the jacket looks like stripes, and since I'd had fun lately wearing striped scarves with striped maxi skirts, I thought I'd give the striped scarf and striped jacket combination a try. I really liked this outfit, even if the jacket was a little bit too warm to wear during the day when my friend and I went out for a walk at lunchtime to admire the spring blooms at the Brisbane Arcade. Just like the first outfit, I liked all the pink in this outfit too, even if the scarf and bag are different shades of pink.


Last worn: jacquard jacket, striped scarf, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag (above). First time I've shared the tunic on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Perfect for pregnancyjacquard jacket in third trimester, black pencil skirt in first trimester, silver ballet flats in third trimester.



Textured Jackets Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey tee is a wardrobe staple for stay at home mum life, but can be dressed up for the office if you have a casual environment. A fun striped scarf can hide the casual nature of the tee, especially when paired with a formal textured jacket.
