What I Bought In November

Short and sweet what I bought post! Showing you two things I bought for myself last month - I did take advantage of some of the black Friday and Cyber Monday sales but that was to buy Christmas presents for others. So I wanted to share some things I picked up for myself before all the sales, just two things!


What I Bought:




Why I Bought It:


The shoes were such a lucky find. I have never been able to find shoes in my size at an opshop but I always glance at the shoe rack just in case. I was thrilled to realise these were in my size and just $3! Looking a little worse for wear I figured I could clean them up a bit at home, trying a few different things to get rid of the yellowing the scuff marks and stains on the leather. They certainly don't look new but $3 for a $150 pair of shoes I'm pretty happy with how they scrubbed up!




The bag was an impulse buy - and while I also bought it at the start of November it was on better sale than it ended up being on Black Friday. I'd been eyeing it for a while unsure about the colour it looked on the David Jones site, but once it was further reduced I had so snap it up. As you can see in the video I didn't need to worry about the colour! It's been a firm favourite bag to wear since I bought it.



How I've Worn It:

The bag has had the most wear as I've only worn the shoes once so far as it took a while to clean them up. I was pleased with how they were looking so wore them on Monday to check out how comfortable they would be with my knee injury. Pretty happy with them! I know both pieces will get a lot more wear in future too.

I'm not planning to make any fashion related purchases in December but who knows what sales will tempt me 😂 At the moment though I'm on track to be under my 2020 fashion budget and I want to stick there!

30 Ways To Wear: Green Skinny Jeans

December seems like the perfect time for my thrifted green skinny jeans to star in a 30 ways to wear post! They could be considered a very festive shade of green. I haven't worn them with red but I have worn them with a lot of other colours so I'm putting this post together to give you some outfit ideas and inspiration if you have a similar pair of jeans - or pants!



30 Ways To Wear: Green Skinny Jeans





I thrifted these jeans a little over 2 years ago, back in August 2018. They were a $5 bargain opshop find, especially considering that they were new with tags and petite sizing. Being short I usually have to get jeans hemmed unless I buy cropped or petite styles - so happy these are perfect length on me! Also the only pair of Asos petite jeans I've tried before. I have noticed them starting to get quite baggy when I wear them which I'm not too impressed with, but having worn them 30 times and only spent $5 on them I really can't complain!


Cost Per Wear

30 wears at $5 works out at 17 cents a wear which is really impressive! And despite them getting a little baggy I'm still going to keep wearing these - I don't think I'd have the luck of finding jeans in my size and length, also new with tags and just $5 in an opshop again! I'm also surprised that these hit 30 wears so quickly - I was wearing them frequently this spring to hit that goal with them admittedly, but I've also found them really easy to rewear so often. I used to be a bit scared of green but I've been embracing it more and all the different ways I've worn these jeans is a good example of that!



Green Jeans Worn With Black


6 different black and green skinny jeans outfit ideas|  away from blue

One of the simplest ways to wear green jeans - with black! The perfect neutral that goes with everything, you don't have to worry about colours clashing with this combo. And there are so many good options - black tees, jackets, cardigans, kimonos, tanks... Sticking with neutral pieces for the rest of your outfit lets the green jeans really shine. You can always add in a bit more colour with accessories too thought like I have with the green scarf and bag there.



Spring Outfit Ideas For Green Jeans


3 ways to wear green skinny jeans in spring | awayfromblue blog

I like wearing my green jeans in spring - they work well with kimonos which are a staple for me in warmer weather. Especially navy kimonos. Bright spring-like colourful printed tops go so well with the green jeans too! Such a fun pair to pull out for spring when we tend to embrace a bit more colour.


Winter Outfit Ideas With Green Jeans


awayfromblue winter outfit ideas with green skinny jeans

Of course I don't just restrict myself to one season with these green jeans! While they worked well with light layers above for spring they also work really nicely as a pop of colour with all the extra layers you need in winter! Knits, cardigans or scarves and a bright pair of jeans is a cosy and comfortable outfit with a little extra colour among all the winter greys! I like to do the same thing with my red jeans too.


Green Jeans and Printed Tops


easy green jeans outfit ideas with printed tops away from the blue

Another super simple combination I repeat often (although you can see I have a fondness for stripes!). Much like classic blue jeans, these green jeans go so nicely with a printed tee or tank - stripes, animal print, polka dots... jeans and a printed top is such a staple outfit formula and one you can continue to wear even with colourful jeans like these.



Green And Yellow Outfit Ideas With Green Jeans


6 different yellow and green jeans outfit ideas colourful combination mum style awayfromblue

This is a bolder and brighter combination - you can see how I kept it small in a few of these outfits. Adding a little yellow accessory or two, or layering up with neutral navy scarf and cardigan over a yellow tee to downplay the bright pairing a little. Or going all out, with the mustard cardigan and marigold tee for something really statement-making. Any shade of yellow works so well with this shade of green!



Green and Blue Outfit Ideas


5 ways to wear green and blue together with bright skinny jeans awayfromblue

I used to believe the "blue and green should never been seen" rule, but now I know it's a silly one! Blue and green should definitely be seen - and I've certainly worn a lot of different shades of blue with these jeans. Navy is a good fail-safe shade to try, but I can't resist a brighter pop with cobalt either! Wearing these jeans with blue is my favourite kind of outfit combination.

Two Ways To Wear: Green Jeans and Printed Tanks

These green jeans have been on repeat lately! A lucky opshop find two years ago, they were just $5. I've been so close to 30 wears with them, and thanks to my frequent rewearing this spring I have a 30 wears post coming up next week with them!

Wore them very simply for breezy spring days with printed tanks, sneakers and little Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags.

What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Top: Jeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

While I've shared outfits with these sneakers before on the blog, this was the first time I wore them out. I wanted to try a sporty kind of look but I don't really have a sporty wardrobe! Decided to go with the printed tank, the green jeans for a bit of colour and my little Rebecca Minkoff silver crossbody bag as it goes with everything!

It was threatening to rain and a pretty overcast morning, and a little windy, but we took a chance after school drop off and went to my fave trail to test out my new shoes properly. Luckily it didn't rain, and we had the whole place to ourselves! Usually even though we don't see other people due to the nature of the trail we see a car or two in the carpark, but not a single other person was there. It was wonderfully relaxing! My shoes held up pretty well too, I'm glad I replaced my old ones with these, although I hope my knee injury continues to heal so I can get back to regular shoes more often and don't need to wear these as much!






What I wore:

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly, despite wearing stripes with these green skinny jeans a lot, I hadn't worn this striped tank with them before! I was sure I had, but looking back on the blog I can see I haven't! It's a really easy pairing, colourful jeans and a printed tank, just the same as the outfit above, but the different print changes it up a little. Was very comfortable for the school run and working from home on another breezy day.

Picked a neutral bag, this little tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag that hadn't been worn in a while. And to match the white tank I went with my white converse All Stars. Such a good combination, and one I've worn before, I like the matchy-matchy of the tank and shoes together.


How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank - in any print - is an easy choice with a colourful pair of jeans. It works well for spring and is easy to layer up a little with a cardigan or denim jacket in the cooler weather.

30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee

Time for another 30 ways to wear post! Every month I pick something from my wardrobe I've worn 30 times or more and create a new post in this monthly series showing you some of the ways I've worn it. I hope to inspire you to think of more ways to rewear the pieces you own in your wardrobe, as I was inspired when I first heard of the 30 wears challenge in The True Cost documentary.

This month, it's this dark grey v-neck tee in charcoal. It was one of the pieces I first thought of back when I started this series, as I was sure I would have worn it 30 times, but I've only just managed to hit that figure this year, and that's with some pretty frequent rewearing recently. Still, if I had to pick, I'd say this is my favourite grey tee.


30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee



30 ways to wear a dark grey tee #30wears away from the blue blog wardrobe remix



Cost Per Wear


I bought this tee back in July 2013! Thanks to my order email from The Iconic I know it was a $30 tee reduced to $12 in the sale and then I had an extra discount voucher for my order so it worked out to just $9.48. At 30 wears to date that's 32 cents a wear. Pretty good cost per wear I think! Obviously, having this tee pre-kids and during my pregnancies and now after having my kids, it doesn't fit quite the same as it used to 7 years ago! However it is still super soft, stretchy and although it's maybe not quite as slouchy a fit as it was before I love how comfortable it is. I plan to wear this until it falls apart.

The other, lighter, grey tee I bought in the same order I've already done a 30 wears post on too. It was a good sale shop back then as I still have 3 of the 4 things I ordered and I've now hit 30 wears on 2 of them!

I think the reason it's taken me 7 years to reach 30 wears with this tee was a combination of not wanting baby spit up on my fave tee when the kids were younger, along with the habit I'm trying to stop of "saving" pieces in my wardrobe and feeling they are too good to wear on ordinary days. I've been really enjoying wearing this tee so much recently, in an effort to finally hit 30 wears with it and acknowledge its awesomeness in a post! So let's see the ways I've worn it!



Dark Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfits


5 monochrome outfit ideas with a dark grey tee | away from the blue blog

I find true monochrome outfits really tricky to do, as I can never resist adding a little pop of colour with an accessory! I do like wearing this grey tee with other shades of grey and black for a monochrome look - before I start adding colourful pieces on top!


Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits


3 ways to wear Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits | away from blue

This darker grey tee layers so well in winter - it's a neutral shade that goes with any layers I might add on top without clashing, and darker colours seem so perfectly suited for cold days! As you can see in these pics it works with all the extra winter layers with jackets, scarves an cardigans well.


Dark Grey Tee In Outfits With Colourful Statement Pieces


6 ways to wear a dark grey tee with colourful pieces in your outfit | away from blue

Of course it's not just winter layers that this dark tee works with! If you have a dark tee it's a nice outfit base to pair with some other bright statement pieces, even in warmer weather. Like over a floral dress, with neon pink accessories, a yellow kimono, cobalt leather jacket or leopard print pants! This neutral tee is a nice grounding piece to add when you're wearing one or more bright statement pieces in your outfit.


Grey Tee With Red Pieces In An Outfit


5 red and grey v neck tee outfit ideas 30 wears | away from the blue

There are a few colour pairings I keep coming back to with this grey tee so I wanted to call them out specifically. Grey and red is a fun combination, and as you can see you can add little touches of red with accessories or go all out with a red cardigan or maxi skirt. Even burgundy and deep red shades, like those skinny jeans, work well with a dark grey tee.


Grey Tee Outfits With Green


3 ways to wear green pieces with a dark grey tee | awayfromblue

Green is a colour I've been trying to wear more lately and no matter the shade - olive or bright emerald green - I find it a little tricky to wear. Like any colour you're unsure how to wear, you can pair it with a plain grey tee! It just works!



Grey Tee and Skirt Outfits


4 outfit ideas with a dark grey tee and skirts | away from blue blog

This combination is another one I keep coming back to with this grey tee - pairing it with a printed skirt! Maxi skirts are obviously my favourite here, with 3 out of 4 outfits featuring it, but it works well with pencil skirts too and shorter length skirts like you've seen above.


Grey Tee and Baby Bump Outfits


4 grey tee and baby bump outfits | away from the blue

I've been lucky enough to have this tee for both my pregnancies with my boys and I took full advantage of the comfortable stretchy material, wearing it right into the third trimester! It was a simple outfit for work with a pencil skirt, or as you saw above too without the bump, a nice easy casual outfit on a hot day with a maxi skirt. It's one of those non-maternity pieces that work so well in a pregnancy wardrobe!

30 Ways To Wear: Grey Skinny Jeans & Weekday Wear Link Up!

Another 30 ways to wear post for today's Weekday Wear Linkup! Each month I hunt through my blog archives to find things I've worn 30 times or more and put together these posts to give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can rewear similar pieces in your own wardrobe. There are so many ways you can remix and rewear!


30 Ways To Wear: Grey Skinny Jeans


30 ways to wear grey skinny jeans away from the blue outfit idea blogger


These jeans are overdue a post - I was hoping I'd hit 30 wears with them soon and was surprised I'd managed 34 wears of them already! They do go with so much. Like a classic blue skinny jean, I find they go with everything. With these in my wardrobe I'm finding I'm not missing stepping away from the blue jeans at all!


Cost Per Wear

Cost per wear is a tricky one to calculate on these - as they were a gift from a family member on a day out during my 6 months without shopping challenge. Based on the note when I first wore them that there was a 40% off sale on they would have been $59.99, reduced from $99.99 full price. I'm not completely sure though as I didn't buy them myself! At 34 wears so far that's $1.76 per wear. If I should even be calculating that on something I didn't buy, really it's $0 per wear for me!

These grey skinny jeans have the perfect amount of stretch so that they have constantly been the most comfortable jeans, even though I've had them 3 years. They fit so nicely but don't get baggy, and because they go with everything and are so comfortable they were one of the pairs I took with me on our Europe trip. It's easy to see why these 'Cecile' jeans sold out so quickly, and I'm a little upset that Jeanswest haven't created a similar pair of jeans since. They are so soft! Excited to share 30 of my favourite ways I've worn them.


Grey Skinny Jeans With Prints


Grey Skinny Jeans With Printed pieces 4 ways to wear | away from blue

A basic grey pair of jeans goes with everything really, as you'll see in the rest of these pics! The best thing about classic denim is a neutral grey is you can pair it with any print or colour. Printed tops, kimonos or scarves work well with plain jeans, and you can clearly see I especially love wearing stripes with these!


Grey Jeans In Monochrome Outfits


Grey Jeans In Monochrome Outfits with bright accessories outfit ideas | away from blue

These are not all completely monochrome outfits as it's hard for me to resist adding a little colour here and there with accessories! I do like these mostly monochromatic outfits as it shows that other neutrals like black, grey and white work really well with grey jeans. You can add in a pop of colour with accessories as I like to do, or keep it simple and stay completely monochromatic.


Grey Skinny Jeans With Blue


6 ways to wear blue with grey skinny jeans mum style outfits  | awayfromtheblue

As I said above, every colour looks so good with these jeans! So I wanted to call out some of my favourites, and blue is one of the best! No matter if it's a blue scarf or top or bag...these grey jeans work well with any shade of blue, from a little too a lot and more muted tones to bright cobalt. The brighter blues really pop!


Grey Jeans With Orange


ways to wear orange with gray skinny jeans outfits | away from the blue blog

Orange is a pretty statement colour to wear in any shade, although it's one I have been enjoying buying and wearing more of lately. With a bright orange piece in your outfit a neutral grey pair of skinny jeans is a good base to stop things feeling too bright or over the top, especially if you are just easing into the orange colour!


Red And Grey Skinny Jeans Outfits


4 red and grey skinny jeans outfits ideas ways to wear | awayfromtheblue

While red and black can seem a bit harsh sometimes, red and grey go so well together! When I wear these jeans in cooler weather I like adding in red layers for a pop of colour or warmth - something small like a red tee or shoes, or bigger and bolder with a red cardigan!


Yellow and Grey Skinny Jeans Outfits


Yellow and Grey Skinny Jeans Outfits 4 ways to wear | away from the blue

Yellow and grey is another favourite combination of mine - as you can see I do really enjoy wearing my mustard cardigan and Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with these grey skinny jeans! As with the other colours above you can keep it small with a single pop of yellow like a yellow top, or a bit brighter with two yellow pieces like a bag and cardigan combination.


Adding Colour to Grey Skinny Jeans With Layers And Accessories


Adding Colour to Grey Skinny Jeans With Layers And Accessories 4 outfit ideas | away from blue

As you've seen above these jeans really get worn a lot in the cooler weather when I can add extra layers. The neutral colour means they never clash with whatever I want to wear. It also means I feel confident adding even more colours into my outfits. Something small like a purple scarf, or bigger with a pink scarf and bag, magenta cardigan and purple accessories, or even a teal bag and scarf with a mustard cardigan. There is no colour combination I haven't liked with these jeans, they are such a staple! You really can wear them with anything.

30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga City Bag Sorbet Pink & Weekday Wear Link Up

Today's Weekday Wear Post is another from the 30 wears series, showing you 30 ways I've worn this sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag.

Each month I search through my blog archives to find something I've worn 30 ways or more over the years I've owned it, to put this post together and give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can wear something similar in your own wardrobe. The Weekday Wear Linkup is at the end of the post for you to link up your latest style post!


30 Ways to Wear: Balenciaga Sorbet Pink City Bag


30 ways to wear balenciaga sorbet pink city bag outfit ideas | Away From Blue Blog


Despite being a very vibrant pink, this bag is so versatile and goes with a lot of my wardrobe. I really like blue and pink together, and have a lot of blue in my wardrobe, so you can see why this bag has fit in so well!

Cost Per Wear


I ordered this bag from the Balenciaga London boutique back in 2010, at over 10 years old it's held up really well! Definitely showing its age more now, but still a bag I adore and I like the broken in slouch it has. It's been worn over 60 times in those 10 years so it's held up well! Sometimes I wore the bag in two outfits on those posts that I found in my blog search, but those are harder to count without going through every pic so we will say 60 wears. 

Unfortunately the only record I have of the sale is in pounds, as I ordered from the UK store and I don't remember the exchange rate. It was £799.15, including the £80(!!!) shipping. That works out at £13.32 a wear so far. Still pretty high but for a splurge-worthy bag like this I see myself using for a long time still I know I'll get the cost per wear down much further.

Pink Balenciaga City Bag With A Little Black Dress


4 ways to wear little black dresses with pink balenciaga sorbet city bag  awayfromblue


Probably the simplest way to wear a pink bag - against a black outfit! I have a few little black dresses (a couple which were my go-tos during my pregnancies too) so it's no surprise I've worn this pink bag with a black dress so often.


Pink Bag As A Pop Of Colour


4 ways to wear Balenciaga city bag as a pop of colour with outfit awayfromblue


Of course it's not just black that this pink bag pops with! It goes really nicely with other neutrals like grey or white, and it's so simple to add it to an outfit as a bright pop of colour. It stands out so well on it's own it is a great pop of colour.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag Matching Other Pink Pieces In An Outfit


5 ways to wear pink balenciaga city bag sorbet 2010 with matching pieces in outfit away from blue


Matchy-matchy is one of my favourite ways to wear a bright bag though and I find a lot of pink things in my outfit go with this bag, even if the shades are different. Something like the Balenciaga studded sandals which were a lucky sale find on a Melbourne trip and match the bag exactly, or a pink belt, necklace, scarf, even pink in the print of a top or a more subtle match with pink sunglasses! I really like finding different pieces to match with this bag.


Pink Bag With Purple Pieces In An Outfit


3 pink and purple accessory outfit ideas away from blue blog


There are some colour combinations I consistently wear with this pink Balenciaga city bag. I think pink and purple go so well together and while I have worn this pink bag with the purple leopard print scarf a few times I think it goes nicely with other shades of purple like the cardigan in the middle.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag With Blue Outfits


5 ways to wear Balenciaga city bag in sorbet pink RH with blue outfits different shades awayfromtheblue


This is easily one of my most worn colour combinations with this bag, and I definitely had an overabundance of blue outfits with this pink bag to chose from for this post when I searched through my blog archives! It just compliments it so well, the sorbet pink goes with any shade of blue from navy to a lighter blue, and it works with prints, tops, skirts, dresses...


Pink Bag In Office Outfits


4 outfit ideas with balenciaga pink sorbet city bag in the office awayfromtheblue


The Balenciaga city is a very relaxed style of bag, and a very bold pink! I still think it can work in an office environment though - and back when we still worked in offices, this got a lot of wear. It was nice to have a fun, cheerful and colourful item on my desk to make me smile! And despite the relaxed slouchy style the city bag works well with a pencil skirt or sheath dress.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag In Pregnancy

Having had this sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag over 10 years, I've had it before I had both my boys and so I've been able to wear and enjoy it in my pregnancies with them, so it's fun to look back on. And no matter how big the baby bump gets, a handbag will always fit!



Just for fun, here's a comparison of the first time I wore the bag 10 years ago and the most recent time I've worn it. I love the broken in slouch of this bag!

30 Ways To Wear: Turquoise Tassel Necklace

Sharing another accessory for this month's 30 wears series. Each month I look through my blog archives and pick out pieces I've worn 30 times or more to put together these posts and give you some inspiration for how you can rewear pieces in your own wardrobe. I got the idea from The True Cost documentary.

With staying home more and getting dressed less I'm not hitting 30 wears as much as I usually would with my clothes, although I'm sure my pyjamas and loungewear have great numbers of wear now! So I had a look around for other things I might have hit 30 wears with and found I've worn this cute turquoise tassel necklace 32 times! It's not the first necklace I've hit that goal with either, I wore a teething necklace well over 30 times when the kids were younger!


30 Ways To Wear: Turquoise Tassel Necklace


30 ways to wear a turquoise tassel necklace away from the blue blog


The colours of this necklace are beautiful! With the gold chain, cloudy white stone pendant and the little beaded turquoise tassels, it really goes with so much and is often the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. I've heard turquoise jewellery goes with everything and this necklace proves that! Neutrals, greens, blues, yellow, reds, orange, pink... it works with every colour.

Cost Per Wear


This tassel necklace was an impulse buy at Jeanswest during a shopping trip with my sister, back in October 2018. It was on sale for $14.99, which was 40% off so I got a bargain! At 32 wears, it works out at 47 cents a wear which is pretty good. It still looks new, none of the gold tone has started rubbing off the hardware, so I know I'll get a lot more wear from it in future too.



Matching Turquoise Necklace To Other Pieces In An Outfit


5 outfit ideas, Matching Turquoise Necklace To Other Pieces In An Outfit | awayfromtheblue


You know if you have followed me for a while that I love a bit of matchy-matchy! If you're not sure how to wear a colourful necklace like this try matching it with other turquoise pieces in your outfit! I like wearing my aqua Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, or my teal Balenciaga first bag with this necklace bit you can also match it to a print of something you're wearing like I have with the maxi dresses.



Turquoise Necklace With Green

Turquoise is not too similar to wear with green! I've found that no matter the shade of green - a neutral olive or a brighter emerald, this turquoise necklace compliments it well. 



Turquoise Necklace With Blue


4 outfit ideas of a Turquoise Necklace With Blue outfit pieces awayfromblue blog


Just like with the green outfits above, any shade of blue in your outfit pairs nicely with a turquoise necklace. I do quite like wearing this necklace with that navy printed maxi dress though 😂 You can see it works just as well with the cobalt knit or the pale blue denim jacket.



Turquoise Necklace With Red

I love the contrast of turquoise and red together! Blue and red is a colour pairing I wear a lot and once I decided to try this turquoise necklace with red I just kept repeating it. It's a good way to add an extra touch of colour to your outfit.



Turquoise Necklace With Neutrals

While I've worn this necklace with a few different colours above it's also really good against a neutral outfit, or a neutral piece in your outfit. It really pops and stands out against black or grey.



Turquoise Tassel Necklace In The Office


4 outfit ideas wearing a boho turquoise tassel necklace to office pencil skirt | awayfromtheblue


A tassel necklace brings a little touch of boho to your outfit and it doesn't just work with casual outfits, it looks pretty good in the office too with a pencil skirt to stop your outfit looking overly formal. I've worn this to the office a lot, back when we all used to work in offices...



Adding a Turquoise Necklace As An Extra Colour In An Outfit


5 different outfit and colour combination ideas with a turquoise tassel necklace | away from blue


Because turquoise goes with everything, I like to add this necklace to an outfit as a way of introducing a third or fourth colour without trying too hard. If you're unsure you can try match it with something else like I have with the bag in the last maxi skirt outfit there, or you can just add it as an extra pop of colour against an already colourful outfit. Orange, green and yellow, green and yellow and blue...it works with any colour combination!
