Balenciaga Sorbet Pink City Bag & How To Wear Kimonos With Printed Tanks

I knew this summer would be the summer of shorts after I bought so many new pairs back in November. There's something so easy about pulling on a pair of denim shorts and adding a printed tank. Despite the busy prints on both of these Sass and Bide tanks, I found kimonos to wear with them.

What I wore:

bracelet stack with jord wood watch and Balenciaga sorbet pink city bag with split tassels | away from the blue

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Wasn't too sure about wearing a kimono with this top, as it has a pretty bold print on it already with touches of neon. Wanted to try wear it a little differently though, so decided to try this lace kimono with it. It worked well I thought, I was pleasantly surprised and I really enjoyed wearing this!

We had a day full of errands, nothing really exciting, just the library and a few stores. I still wanted to wear this tank though as it's been such a long time since I last wore it. 10 months! I tend to save this top for 'special' occasions, and I've really been trying to question that lately and wear more of what I own. Got to try hit that 30 wears number!

With the pink in the tank I went with a pink bag. Although the sorbet Balenciaga city doesn't match exactly, it's a nice colour combination. I liked the layered necklaces with this too.


Last worn: lace kimono, neon tank, denim shorts, Havaianas, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Why I wore it:

Another summer day with the boys, another denim shorts outfit! I loved my shorts over summer, and with the heat here in Brisbane I can wear them into autumn too. This tank is one of my favourites, every time I wear it I say it's been too long between wears and that I should wear it more often. Once again I really enjoyed wearing it!

Ended up going for the plain white kimono to wear with this tank, adding colour through the pink Balenciaga city bag again and the blue bead necklace. I liked this outfit, it was casual and comfortable for playgroup in the morning and a doctor's appointment in the afternoon.

Lace or Crochet Kimonos Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:


You can still wear kimonos if you're wearing a printed tank! A good idea is to stick with neutrals like cream or white. Neutral doesn't mean boring though, as you can see with the textures on the kimonos. The first geometric print tank is paired with a lace kimono. WIth the second, the all white kimono has a fun crochet detail on the back and along the hems.

Button Up Tanks and Colourful Spring Outfits With Prints

I love tank tops, they are essentials for our Brisbane weather. As the two outfit photos below show, they can be layered up for a cooler day, and worn on their own when it heats up. Perfect for spring with the fluctuating temperatures!

What I wore:

purple cardigan, printed sleeveless tank, Jeanswest grey cecile skinny jeans cuffed ankle boots | awayfromblue

faux fur pom pom charm, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | away from the blue
JacketJeanswest Dana drape knit cardi in boysenberry
Necklace: Nibbly Bits BB plum silicone teething necklace (C/O)
TopJeanswest Florence print long line tank
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesRMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

As I shared on instagram, this is the 30th wear of this cardigan. I bought it pre-blog so I know it's been worn more times than that, but I didn't have regular outfit photos then. I've been wearing it a lot lately as I was so eager to hit that 30 wear mark before proper spring weather arrived and it got too warm for this to be worn. It's the reason why I packed it to take to Sydney!

I've worn this tank and cardigan together before too. Since I loved this outfit pairing of the printed tank with purple skinny jeans, I've been recreating that with the purple cardigan! To try and make it a little different I picked grey jeans this time instead of the black jeans I wore last time. I had a much nicer day than I did last time I wore the tank and cardigan together!

We spent the day at my parents, decorating biscuits before lunch, which the boys loved as always! While all the purples are slightly different shades in this outfit, I loved wearing this and think it turned it really well. Comfortable for a day visiting my parents too.

Last worn: purple cardigan, printed tank, grey skinny jeans, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff plum mini MAB tote bag.

Other ways to wearpurple cardigan and chambray dress, sleeveless tank layered for winter, grey skinny jeans with colourful cardigans, black ankle boots and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff plum mini MAB tote bag and maxi dress.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

A quick stop at the post office in the morning, then we headed to my local ABA mother's group. The discussion topic was 'managing a newborn and toddler'. While those days are behind me now and I have two toddlers (time flies so fast!) it was great to share the things that helped me and smile at the stories of things happening now and in the past that were so similar to my own experiences.

Unlike the rainy and cool spring day above, this was a much warmer day that allowed me to wear the sleeveless tank without any extra layers. I haven't worn this tank for a while, it's been sitting near the front of my wardrobe to remind me to wear it. The colour is incredible and it's one of those pieces it's so tempting to just 'save' for special occasions! I'm trying to get more wear from pieces in my wardrobe and enjoy what I own, so this top was definitely due another wear.

As I love pink and purple together, the purple accessories seemed like a good choice with this tank. I thought that the printed jeans would be a nice pairing with the pink tank too, to add a little more interest to my outfit.


Last worn: pink sleeveless tank, Sass and bide printed jeans, Havaianas, purple mini MAB tote bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:


A button up tank is a great stay at home mum staple! It can feel a little more pulled-together than a regular tank, but is just as easy to wear. Button up tanks are perfect for breastfeeding, without the need to buy anything special just for feeding and that have the added bonus of being able to be worn afterwards too!

Embroidered Tops, Black Jeans and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

I'm pleased that the embroidery trend is continuing! Gives me more justification to wear these lovely embroidered pieces from my wardrobe. I'll still wear them when the trend dies down, but it's nice to be able to wear something I'm constantly reading about in blogs. An embroidered top and black skinny jeans is an easy stay at home mum outfit, but to add extra interest to each outfit I have wore additional prints and texture too.

What I wore:

embroidered khaki tank with black skinny jeans boucle embellished jacket spring outfit | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | Away From The Blue

awayfromblue instagram boucle blazer black skinny jeans khaki embroidered tank
Top: Target embroidered khaki tank
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O, on sale!)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Hadn't worn this jacket for a while so it was nice to get it out again! I wasn't sure if the embellishment paired with the embroidery on the top would be too much, but I quite liked the resulting outfit. It was a nice change from last time I wore this embroidered top with black jeans too. Now that it's spring and warmer weather, I can hopefully wear this jacket more. It's a bit thin for winter.

I like how this jacket dresses up a casual outfit a bit - even if I was just popping out for a little shopping while hubby watched the boys.

JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink, 43% off!)

Why I wore it:

I've tried to wear other prints with these chevron printed Sass & Bide jeans in the past and not been entirely happy with the results. Just like the first outfit, I decided to try something different by pairing the chevrons with the detail on this embroidered top. I liked the result, but not enough to want to wear it again, haha! Will stick with wearing plain black jeans with this embroidered top next time.

Even though the embroidery and print together was busy enough, I added a little extra texture with the cardigan. I love the purple accessories with this - the cardigan is so cosy and wearing the cardigan and plum mini MAB tote bag together is a favourite combination of mine. Kept me warm on a very windy day.

The plan was to go to the in-laws for dinner, but after baby boy wasn't his usual happy self when we went out in the morning, we decided to stay home at night and let him rest and feel better. It's been such a tough winter with illnesses, I'm glad it's spring now as I'm hoping the warm weather and sunshine keeps the bugs at bay.

Black Printed and Plain Jeans Under $50:







How You Can Wear It:


Black jeans are a great base for any outfit! The are the perfect backdrop to let an embroidered top or jacket shine. You can mix things up a little by buying black jeans with a print on them if you feel plain black is too boring.

Wrap Tops In Winter With Skinny Jeans, Converse and Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

Although you don't seem to see wrap tops around on blogs as often now, I still love the style and I especially love how breastfeeding friendly they are! If you're on a budget it's better to buy a regular wrap top instead of paying the high price for a special 'breastfeeding brand' wrap top. They are the same product.

While wrap tops are nice to wear, they are a little plain so I added a print to my outfit for a little something extra.

What I wore:

stripe duster, nobody denim siren skinny jeans, converse, wrap top, LV speedy daycare orientation outfit | AwayFromBlue

crook of arm Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | AwayFromTheBlue
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O, on sale!)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this as I wanted something nice and comfortable and practical for Baby Boy's orientation day at day care. It basically means I get to spend the day there with him getting him used to the room and the routine so it's not a big shock for him when I go back to work. It was fun, although I did end up covered in pasta sauce. Better than toddler T's orientation day where my shirt got ruined!

As I was going to be inside all day, I just needed a light layer so this striped duster cardigan was perfect.

I did regret adding the silicone teething necklace to this outfit though. I thought it would comfort Baby Boy to have it to play with if he got upset and needed cuddles, but I underestimated exactly how attractive the bright beads are to babies! Lots of the other kids at daycare tried to grab it a few times, oops.

Was nice wearing this wrap top again as it had been packed away with my winter things. While it's sold out in blue as this is from last year, it's still available in red.


Last worn: striped duster, blue wrap top, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Other ways to wearstriped duster and chambray dress, blue wrap top and maxi skirt, Nobody Denim skinny jeans in spring, Converse and printed dress, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere and maxi dress.

Perfect for pregnancy: striped duster and maternity shorts, Converse for a weekend trip in second trimester, speedy bandouliere and maternity pencil skirt.

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TeeAtmos&Here Nile wrap front jersey tee
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Unfortunately, the meeting we had planned for this morning was cancelled after the other person had been up all night with an unwell teething baby and slept through their alarm. I've done that a few times myself! Decided to spend the time grocery shopping instead since we were all up and ready. Not as exciting, but a good way to use the free time we suddenly had.

A few more layers with this wrap top as I was going outside and winter weather is definitely here in Queensland. Added the cobalt scarf for a bit of colour and to cover up the v shaped neckline and keep my chest cosy. Because I added the blue scarf, I wore my blue mac as well. I really liked this combination and it was a good way to add some colour to an otherwise monochromatic outfit with the grey wrap top and printed jeans.


Last worn: navy mac, cobalt scarf, grey wrap tee, Sass & Bide printed jeansConverse (above), Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere (above).

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse and maxi skirt in first trimester, speedy bandouliere and maternity wrap dress.


How You Can Wear It:



The usual fashion advice is to not buy into trendy pieces. However, like these wrap tops, if the trend is something that works for you and your lifestyle, go for it! Trends are a fun way to try something different, and you could find yourself with a new favourite style. Most trends (like off the shoulder) I let pass me by but wrap tops are so perfect for breastfeeding I just had to buy 3 of them!

I'm going to continue to wear these tops in the years to come, even if they aren't the trendy thing any more, as they work for me. As a very wise and stylish lady once said: wear it because you love it, not just because it's what's 'in' at the moment.





In case you have missed every other blogger posting about it, the Nordstrom sale has now opened to the public so anyone can shop it! That includes those of us in Australia.

Colourful Winter Dressing: Printed Jeans with Pink and Cobalt

I love blue and pink together, so I like to wear it year-round. While I do tend to wear more neutrals in winter (it makes layering easy as everything goes), it's nice to add a little bit of colour or a fun print to your outfit sometimes. The cobalt leather jacket I'm wearing in the outfits below is both cosy and colourful, and paired with pink it makes for a cheerful winter outfit.

A neutral bag is an essential in both outfits while I have so much else going on with the prints and colour.

What I wore:

pink ombre tank, cobalt blue leather jacket, printed Sass & Bide skinny jeans, converse | AwayFromBlue

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
TankJeanswest 'Macy' ombre tank in 'very berry'
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH
Nail PolishOPI Russian Navy

Why I wore it:

Had a busy but kid-free few hours when I wore this. The beading on this ombre tank is beautiful but I worry about how it will hold up with tiny little grabby hands so it's been a while since it was last worn! I was pregnant with Baby Boy when I last wore it. 😲 Definitely a piece that feels more special and doesn't get worn for everyday stay at home mum duties.

When I was thinking of what to wear and putting this outfit together I worried it maybe had a little too much going on, with the beaded ombre tank, bright cobalt jacket and printed jeans. But I loved this final outfit. The neutral Balenciaga bag was a good choice so it didn't compete with all the print and colour. I was happy and comfortable all day, despite running late to almost every appointment, oops.


Last worn: cobalt leather jacket, ombre beaded tank, Sass & Bide printed jeans, Converse Chucks, Balenciaga part time bag.

Other ways to wearcobalt leather jacket and pencil skirt, ombre beaded tank and blazer, Sass & Bide printed jeans worn two ways, Converse Chucks and dress, Balenciaga part time bag and striped dress.

Perfect for pregnancy: ombre tank hiding an early baby bump, Balenciaga part time and maternity pencil skirts.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale, 20% off!)
Nail PolishOPI Fire Escape Rendezvous

Why I wore it:

This was what I wore for the instagram style challenge prompt of 'shop your wardrobe'. Which applies to every outfit I've worn since my last purchase in December! I didn't plan anything special to meet the style challenge prompt for the day, I just wanted to wear this tank and the leopard print jeans together as I thought it would be a nice combination.

Again I went with a neutral bag, the metallic mini MAC, as my outfit felt quite busy already with the colours and print together. I felt completely different in this outfit compared to the one above though. I'd been so sure about this as I planned it out in my head, only to put it on in the morning and felt it was missing something. I added the necklace but I'm still not sure that was what the outfit needed - maybe a scarf instead.

As we were running late for books and rhymes at the library I just wore it anyway. Not one of the worst outfits I've worn, as I didn't completely hate it, just another of those cases where the outfit doesn't look as good as you think it will in your head! I did really like the cobalt jacket and leopard print jeans together at least - I'll have to try that again soon.


Last worn: cobalt leather jacket (above), metallic tank, pink leopard print jeans, Converse All Star, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

Other ways to wearcobalt leather jacket and dress, metallic tank and chambray, pink leopard print jeans and blazer, Converse All Star and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC and denim shorts.

Perfect for pregnancy: leopard print jeans in early second trimester, Converse and maternity shorts, mini MAC worn as a clutch in third trimester.






More Printed Jeans Under $50:









How You Can Wear It:



While neutral layers are practical and make winter layering easy, you can have some fun with your outfit by adding more colour, as statement print, or both! If you're experimenting with colour and prints in your outfit, you might want to pick a classic neutral handbag that won't compete for attention.


Summer tanks can be a fun addition to your winter wardrobe, and with the right layers can be worn year round. While I'm wearing a colourful leather jacket above, a bright cardigan or scarf would work just as well to add more colour. Printed jeans can also be worn year-round to add another element of interest to your outfits. 




In case you have missed the 1000 other bloggers posting about it, the Nordstrom sale has kicked off!

Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag with Black and Red Skinny Jeans Outfits

I love this little red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag! I don't have any other crescent shaped bags so it's a nice addition to my wardrobe and it's just the right size for keeping all my essentials (keys, wallet phone) nearby when I'm out with the toddlers. The crossbody feature makes it a practical choice for a mum!

One way to wear such a bright red bag is a pop of colour with a neutral outfit. But for these outfits, I'm embracing the red and wearing red clothing as well for cheerful and colourful winter outfits.

What I wore:

wearing red saddle bag with matching cardigan and printed skinny jeans | Away From Blue

silver bracelet stack, Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | Away From Blue
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf
Tank:  French Connection feather foil singlet
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy morning, a few appointments to go to and taking Cooper for a very overdue grooming. While this red cardigan is only a light one, with all the running around I was warm enough, and even took the scarf off when it heated up.

This tank is starting to go from a metallic tank to a plain black tank pretty quickly! I think the more I wash it, the less sparkly it gets! It's definitely a keeper though, so soft and I like the way it's just a little oversized, perfect for partially tucking in. Even if it's not as colourful as it once was.

The skull print scarf is one I've worn with these printed jeans in the past - I wasn't too sure of it then but I loved it this time around with the addition of the red cardigan. Was really happy with this cheerful and bright outfit.


Last worn: red cardigan, taupe skull scarf, metallic tank, Sass & Bide printed jeans, bow ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to wearred cardigan and button down, taupe skull scarf and printed shirt dress, metallic tank and maxi skirt, Sass & Bide printed jeans and teal henley, bow ballet flats and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag and denim shorts.

Perfect for pregnancy: red cardigan and first trimester bump.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | Away From The Blue
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan

TeeZalora Basics maroon stepped t-shirt
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Although the tee's a little more burgundy and the bag is more of a cherry red, I thought they looked nice together and it was just enough red to wear for World MS day!

I've worn orange and red together a handful of times - so I knew this lovely ombre scarf would work nicely with the tee. I had been wanting to wear the red tee with the striped duster but couldn't get the half tuck to look right. Added the scarf and I was instantly happier with how the tee looked untucked. I really really liked this outfit, which made it all the more frustrating when it was promptly ruined by a potty training toddler. Thankfully everything was machine washable, and it happened after Baby Boy's specialist appointment.

That's the best pieces of fashion advice I could ever give to a mum - make sure you can machine wash all your clothes! 😂


Last worn: striped duster, ombre scarf, red tee, Prima black skinny jeans, tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag (above).

Other ways to wearstriped duster and flares, ombre scarf and striped tee, red tee with double denim, Prima skinny jeans and printed kimono, tan boots and printed dress, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancy: striped duster and maternity shorts, red tee in the first trimester, skinny jeans and a hidden belly band.

How You Can Wear It


A red bag is a fun pop of colour with a neutral outfit, but don't be afraid to wear some red in your outfit too! The red shades don't have to match exactly to look good together. You can make an outfit like this with any colourful bag, it doesn't have to just be a red one. 

Have fun creating easy and colourful outfits when you pick a piece of clothing to wear that's the same or a similar shade to the bag you're wearing.
