Kmart Tiered Sundresses With Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossody Bag In Magenta

These Kmart sundresses are such good buys. When we had a few days of cooler weather I thought I'd better give them 'one last wear' for summer temperatures, before I'd have to layer them up for autumn. Of course I didn't have to worry as March brought another summer heatwave despite being the official start to autumn! My 'summer' outfits will still be continuing for a while!

What I wore:

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I was sure that I'd worn these shoes and this little black dress together before until I went to write this post! While I paid the full $15 for the dress at Kmart, the shoes were a $8 sale find I stumbled across a few months later. I love the look of a pretty dress with casual shoes, and I decided with a cooler morning that closed in shoes would be a nice choice to keep me warm and negate the need for any extra layering over the dress. Of course it turned into such a warm day!

Ran a quick errand in the morning, then took the boys to the playground so I could get some more study time in.

Didn't need to carry much, as usual when I have the boys with me I have the baby bag as well, so I just carried the essentials in the Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. I love how the magenta pops with the black!


Last worn: Kmart Aztec print sundress, blue beaded necklace, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

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









What I wore:



Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another simple sundress outfit. Unlike the one above, I scored this on sale and it was just $2! With the blue base of the dress and the pastel pink floral print, I thought the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag was a good third colour to add to the mix. I did wish I'd picked a different necklace looking back at the photos though, this navy tassel necklace is a much loved Christmas gift, but it kind of blends in with the dress in the pics. I love the way it looks with a plain white tee!

Had a quiet day with the daycare drop off and pick up and working from home before an appointment for my son in the evening.


Last worn: blue and pink tiered dress, navy tassel necklace, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:


A simple sundress is a good way to beat the summer (or unexpected Autumn!) heat. Add a fun cross body bag in a bold colour and it's a great outfit formula for a hot day.

Denim Shorts, Kimonos and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Cross Body Bag In Magenta

Although it's autumn in Brisbane, summer outfits can continue for a while before the really cold weather arrives! Simple tanks, printed kimonos and shorts with a cute colourful Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag are such easy stay at home mum outfits.

What I wore:

denim shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | away from the blue

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, I thought all of the colours worked so well together. While the dominant colour in this printed kimono is purple, it has a bunch of other colours in it. I couldn't resist adding more colour with this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. A neutral navy tank and blue denim shorts were an easy pairing with the rest of the colour. And then a blush necklace, for another little extra touch of colour.

Just a quiet day, doing the daycare drop off and pickup and working from home, before taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Such a comfortable outfit for that. I did wish I had picked a different tank in the afternoon heat though - this one is an old breastfeeding one, it's layered with hidden access for breastfeeding and on a hot day layered tops are not the best! Such a cute basic tank though, I'm still keeping it around long after finishing breastfeeding as you wouldn't know just by looking at it that it's a special piece.


Last worn: blush tassel necklace, purple printed kimono, navy tank, boyfriend denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearpurple printed kimono with stripes, navy tank and striped duster for travel, boyfriend denim shorts and red scarf, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and maxi dress.

Why I wore it:

Another outfit with the same formula! A metallic tank this time, black denim shorts and a navy printed kimono. Again with the same magenta Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag as, just like in the first outfit, I love how the magenta works with navy.

Didn't like this outfit as much as the one above though - even with swapping the Havaianas for studded sandals, this outfit just felt a bit plain. Was nice and simple for a day with the kids though, doing our usual playground and library routine with a couple of errands to run too.

Bright Tanks Soft Shorts With Colourful Bags: Easy Summer SAHM Style

On a hot day, soft shorts like these are the best! Paired with simple tanks and colourful bag, it's easy mum style for summer.

What I wore:

colourful mixed print thrifted tank with olive floral embroidered short mustard yellow bag summer style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold with olive shorts | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | colourful mixed print tank with neutral olive shorts mustard rebecca minkoff regan bag
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Top: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank (new purchase)
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

First wearing of my newly thrifted tank! I bought quite a few things over January and February! This was just $1 though so I had to have it. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it in the opshop and as I tried it on I realised it looked familiar. Ironing it after washing it, I thought more and I'm sure that I know someone with this exact top - not sure if it's a blogger or a friend! I messaged a few people I thought it might be but I haven't figured it out yet. It will be so funny when I figure out who has it. It's a Target one though so I might have just remembered walking past someone wearing it!

Didn't bump into anyone much on this day I wore it though - it was one of those super humid days, lots of heavy rain (I took my pics super quick then rushed inside to stay dry!) but still so hot. I did the daycare drop off and then worked from home for the day - briefly stepping out at lunch time to pick up a parcel at the post office I'd been waiting for since December!

With all the colours in the tank the neutral olive shorts seemed like the best choice, and they are so comfortable on a hot and humid day too. While the yellow in the tank isn't mustard, I thought this mustard micro Regan bag would make a great pairing with it, and I do love wearing this bag with these shorts.


Last worn: silver trinity necklace, olive embroidered shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the tank as it's a recent purchase.

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in mid turquoise
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another simple tank and soft shorts combo - although this time it's a plain tank and printed shorts, the reverse of the first outfit. When I saw these shorts I debated getting them as I do have another pair of blue soft printed shorts, with a waist tie. But I figured as I'd worn those other ones more than 30 times these would also be a great addition to my wardrobe. And I have that post of 30 ways to wear blue printed shorts to give me outfit ideas!

Really liked how this came together, especially with the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. I wanted to wear my new bag but wasn't entirely sure how it would work with the different shades of blue and the print on the shorts. While it doesn't match with anything I'm glad I gave this a go as I really liked the pop of colour it added!

We had a quiet day, taking advantage of the slightly cooler morning to get in some time at the park with the boys before running a few errands and opshoping when the day got warmer. We actually managed to find what I was looking for in the opshop which so rarely happens! Was definitely a good thrifting day.

Thrifted Outfits: Printed Tees and Maxi Skirts With New Rebecca Minkoff Bags

I think these outfits sum up my style perfectly! Thrifted maxi skirts and tees, with some splurge-worthy bags. Because why spend a lot on clothes when you could put that money towards the bag budget instead? 😂


I've been thrifting a lot more in recent years - it was helped by having an opshop (thrift store) right next to the playgroup we went to weekly. Although it's now closed down it helped me see that I could maybe swing 10-15 minutes to browse if there were some toys around for the boys to play with! I've been looking further afield at different opshops to find a nice replacement store, which of course has lead to buying things as I browsed! It's meant I could pull these outfits together really cheaply (if you don't count the cost of the bags I accessorised with!)

What I wore:

thrifted printed tee ruffle maxi skirt summer sahm style outfit with rebecca minkoff edie cross body | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | kids birthday party mum outfit printed tee maxi skirt rebecca minkoff edie cross body bag magenta
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt (new purchase)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

This skirt is recently purchased - both it and the tee were only $1 each. While I do already have a black drawstring waist maxi skirt, it doesn't have the ruffled hem and does have splits up each side which limits when I can wear it. I can see this working for cooler weather with some ankle boots, and being petite I wasn't going to turn down a perfect length maxi skirt for just $1. I suspect it may have been altered before to suit its previous equally short owner!

The perfect outfit for a busy day. First wearing of my new Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag too. I scored this in the January sales, and while it took a few weeks to arrive it was worth the wait! Wore this to a birthday party at McDonalds in the morning and then watching church online at my friends house in the evening.

With the bold abstract print on the tee and the bright cross body bag, I didn't feel this outfit needed a necklace.


Last worn: abstract print tee, Havaianas. First time I've worn the ruffle maxi skirt and Edie bag too as they are recent purchases.

What I Bought In January And February - Opshop Haul:






What I wore:

space dye tee and mixed print maxi skirt opshopped outfit thrift finds and rebecca minkoff bag | away from blue

mixed print thrifted maxi skirt and Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram summer printed maxi skirt and tee thrifted opshopped outfit with mab camera bag
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Skirt: thrifted tribal print maxi skirt
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another completely thrifted outfit if you exclude the accessories! This tee was even cheaper than the one above, working out to just 67 cents as I got it in a 'fill a bag for $2' sale with a few other pieces. This is its sixth wear too, getting great cost per wear.

I've tried print mixing with it before, this time around I thought I'd pair it with this printed maxi skirt. Which I got in the same $2 bag of clothes. It was originally a dress, and I decided to have it altered into a skirt. It's such a fun summer piece.

I liked the way that the space dye tee worked with the mixed prints on the skirt, and I think the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag tied the two pieces together nicely. Since the bag was a Christmas gift, that leaves the sandals to be the most expensive part of my outfit and I purchased them for $20!



Last worn: black printed tee, gold and navy beaded necklacemixed print maxi skirt, gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag.

Other ways to wearblack printed tee in the office, mixed print maxi skirt and denim jacket, gold sandals and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag and frill sleeve tees.




How You Can Wear It:

There is a false assumption that you need to wear a new outfit every day or you can't rewear things - in fashion in general, not just in blog land. I definitely challenge that and I enjoy showing you different ways to wear things in every post, and my 30 wears series to illustrate that you don't need new things all the time. And you certainly don't need to spend a lot when you do buy things!

You can easily find a bargain piece or two to update your wardrobe and make things feel fresh without maxing out your credit cards. Opshops, thrift stores, eBay, sale sections, all are good ways to make your fashion budget go a little further and give you the thrill of something new, so you can have a little more money to splurge on the things you care more about. That means more money for handbags for me obviously! 😂

In blogging, there is pressure to wear new things, things you can link and generate commissions on sales of. And I truly do appreciate those of you who buy things through the affiliate links I share to give me a little extra money for my hobby. But I'd much rather be a useful blog, that gives you inspiration for ways to wear pieces you already have and encourages you to rewear pieces to get more value from the things you've bought.
