Layering Dresses For Winter With Printed Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Avery Crossbody Bag

Feeling like I'd been wearing jeans a lot over winter, I took the opportunity to layer up some of my dresses instead! One slightly dressier outfit for an afternoon out with hubby and another more casual one for the school run.

What I wore:

floral swing dress layered up for winter with tights boots leather jacket burgundy accessories | awayfromblue

mustard floral dress with Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy | awayfromtheblue


JacketJeanswest black leather moto jacket
ScarfForever New skye foil feather scarf in berry / gold
Dress: Zaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy

Why I wore it:

This would be totally overdressed for a day at home with the kids! I didn't wear this when we were playing or baking, I just wore it when hubby and I went out in the afternoon to review the photos from our family photo shoot the week before. Took the opportunity to treat it like a mini date night as the hour away from the kids with complimentary drinks while we watched our photo presentation is the closest we will get to a proper date night for a while! 😂

Picked this black leather jacket to wear over the floral dress as it is not as slim fitting as my other one and has more space for the statement flared sleeves on this dress. The burgundy bag and scarf were just being matchy-matchy with the burgundy floral print on the dress. It's the first time I've tried this dress with burgundy (although I have worn the mustard dress with a red bag before) and I really liked this combination!

Since I wasn't going to be walking far I wore my pretty ankle boots - the tiny few centimetre high heel is too unmanageable for my injured knee to walk around in, but it can do a walk from the car to the studio and back again!






What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Monica Mac coat in Indigo
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressAsos grey skater dress with leggings underneath
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy

Why I wore it:

A much more neutral outfit with this little burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag, and a much more casual one! It was a really cold and windy day so I pulled out this navy mac that was just perfect for keeping me warm on the school run. It was a staple of my winter outfits back when I was still commuting to the office, but now I work from home this is it's first wearing this year!

Picked a blue scarf to compliment the navy jacket - this Stella McCartney heart print blanket scarf is so cosy and warm and makes me smile any time I wear it! It was a nice touch of colour and print with the grey skater dress, and it and the coat kept me cosy in the cold evening too when I took my son along to his sports session.

Wasn't sure if the grey leggings with this dress would be too much grey, but I think the colourful accessories and the darker grey of the leggings made this work.


How You Can Wear It:


You can easily layer up some summer dresses for winter with extra layers - ankle boots, tights or leggings, a cosy jacket and a big printed scarf can help you stay warm. A colourful printed scarf adds an extra pop to your outfit as well - try something colourful with a neutral dress, or match the colour of your scarf to a colour in the print if it's a printed dress you're wearing.

The Magnificent 8: Hello Yellow!

For something different, sharing a Wednesday post again. I am not yet returning to the 3 posts a week I did before Coronavirus hit, this is a special post as I've joined the Magnificent Eight! The theme today is "Hello Yellow", one I had a lot of fun with as I have quite a few yellow pieces in my wardrobe now! 

So I'm sharing two outfits, one I wore on the weekend and the other during the week for the school run. Because even though it's a blog collaboration it wouldn't be my blog if I wasn't showing you what I actually wore, would it! Scroll down to see them and find out more about the Magnificent 8 ladies!


What I wore:

mustard yellow cardigan with black nobody denim skinny jeans converse navy bag mixed print tank | awayfromblue

mustard cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | hellow yellow mustard cardi mixed print tank black nobody denim skinny jeans navy micro bedford bag

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I had this cardigan in mind for the Hello Yellow theme and was wondering what top to wear with it, as it was so warm I decided on a tank. This tank was also thrifted, just like the cardi, and the yellow in the mixed print works so well with the mustard cardigan! It was an extremely warm day so a scarf wasn't needed, I even rolled up the sleeves of my cardigan for a bit!

Kept the rest of my outfit neutral with the Converse and my black Nobody Denim skinny jeans, and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag

Simple but colourful for a warm winter day in the playground. Even though we hadn't had any COVID cases in our state for 8 days at the time I was still a little unsure about taking the kids to a playground for the first time since Iso! I seemed to be the only one worried, the playground was so busy! The kids had a blast playing there even though they had to wait their turn a few times. We used to visit playgrounds regularly before everything happened, so it was nice to get back to it, and easier on my injured knee than the exploring around local trails and empty parks that we have been doing instead the past few months.






What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle

Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This outfit was pulled together from other outfits I've worn before! It's not the first time I've worn the scarf and cardigan together, and I really liked this yellow tee last time I wore it with olive green jeans so I wanted to try it with these green jeans as well. I added the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag as it matches so nicely with the navy scarf and cardigan, and again was a nice neutral with the bright top and jeans.

Was a quiet day - doing the school run and taking the little one out to hunt for more books at the opshops. With it being No Buy July I wasn't going to browse for clothes but thought we could go have a look for some books. The kids always like picking up a book or two whenever we stop at an opshop. And with getting back into reading over Iso after my neighbour started up a virtual book club, I wanted to have a browse of the books for myself as well! Was a fun way to spend a small part of the morning after school drop off.



How You Can Wear It:

Yellow is such a cheerful colour to wear - and it pairs well with other brights too! Try it with green, blue, navy, or keep it simple and stick with neutral black skinny jeans.

Two Ways To Wear a Mustard Cardigan: With Green and Orange

This mustard cardigan was an awesome opshop find and just $2! It's a great way to add more colour to a winter outfit. I decided to be really colourful when I wore it recently and paired it with some other bright colours: green and orange.

What I wore:

mustard cardigan green skinny jeans striped tee mum school run outfit winter colourful | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | away from the blue

awayfromblue mustard cardigan green skinny jeans cotton on striped tee winter school run outfit

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeCotton On "The One" fitted v tee in Cole stripe white moonlight
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really like green with yellow, and it's not the first time I've worn these green skinny jeans with yellow. I loved the bright combination, nice and cheerful for a wet day. It started raining on me as I took these pics!

Thankfully we didn't get too wet at school pick up and drop off, and the rest of the day I was working from home so I was cosy and dry. Jeans and a tee is a perfect work from home outfit, and this cardigan was a much dressier alternative for keeping warm than my daggy old bathrobe when I had a zoom call 😂

With the turquoise tassel necklace adding a little more colour too I went with a neutral bag, this Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag is a classic that goes with so much.



What I wore:

orange tee and mustard yellow cardigan skinny jeans converse outfit | awayfromblue

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This was inspired by an outfit I saw on Instagram on theshoestringshopper. As soon as I saw her orange and yellow outfit I wanted to try it myself with this orange tee and my mustard yellow cardigan. She was inspired by someone else to try it too, it's good seeing how inspiration spreads on Instagram!

I really liked this combo! It was something very different for me and I did feel very visible for school pickup and drop off and sitting on the sidelines of the gym as my son returned to his regular sports sessions. Feels like life is getting so busy now that things are reopening, but it's good to return to regular routines.

Despite a busy evening, we still had plenty of time for a browse in Kmart after dropping my eldest son off at school. No luck getting more pantry containers I'd hoped for, the stock shortage is painfully clear in many aisles. My little one did help me pick out some more Little People, Big Dreams books for our collection though! Kmart has them for $8 each, half the price of everywhere else I've seen them.

Stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out the brights, as well as my grey skinny jeans as black felt a bit too harsh.


Last worn: mustard cardigan (above), marigold tee, tortoiseshell necklace, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above). 

Other ways to wear: mustard cardigan and chambray skirt, marigold tee over a dress, grey skinny jeans and leopard print, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi dress

Perfect for pregnancy: Converse in third trimester


How You Can Wear It:

Mustard is a very versatile shade of yellow! You can use a mustard cardigan to bring some colour to darker or neutral winter layers. It works equally well paired with other bright things in your outfit too like the green skinny jeans or the orange tee.

2 Ways To Wear A Grey Skater Dress: Colourful and Simple | Weekday Wear Link Up

Well what a difference a few weeks makes in this crazy new world. I wore these outfits back in April, just 3 weeks ago. Life is so different now! Australia has a roadmap for lifting all the restrictions after Coronavirus, and we are currently in stage one that gives us a lot more freedom than when I wore this dress! This was my only time going out that week, but now I'm out of the house multiple times a week for the school run.

I added a lot of colour to wear this dress for staying at home, but then simplified it later in the day when we went out to the doctors to get all of our flu shots.

What I wore:

Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono with asos grey babydoll skater dress adding colour with accessories | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono with grey skater dress bright Ruby Olive necklace
Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRuby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
DressAsos grey skater dress
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I like this little grey skater dress but it really needs to be worn more! With a morning at home on a slightly cooler autumn day, I decided to dress it up a little with this duster kimono instead of my go-to  at home cover up, my cosy old bath robe! I really liked how this made me feel a little more pulled together and dressed up, and I liked the bright colours the floral print added. Kimonos are great for that.

I still felt the outfit was missing a little something though so I added in a bright necklace too. The kids enjoyed the necklace as well! They always play with my accessories whenever we have a cuddle.

This was an easy and comfortable outfit and simple to change afterwards when we headed out.


Last worn: floral duster kimono, statement necklace, grey skater dress, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearfloral duster kimono and shorts, grey skater dress worn two other ways.

awayfromtheblue Instagram | grey skater dress asos baydoll with louis vuitton speedy bandouliere bag sneakers
DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This is the simplified version of the outfit above, that I wore out the house to head to the doctors. No extra cover up, as it was warmer by then and I just wanted an easy outfit I could wash as soon as I got home. I left the necklace at home too so it wouldn't get covered in germs - especially with holding the kids close for their flu vaccinations, I didn't want them playing with it and possibly transferring germs.

I've been using my Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag a lot recently, but this time around I went with my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. Just in case the kids needed their water bottles (both fit in here) and because I could wipe this down when we got home and sanitise it.

And of course my New Balance sneakers as they are the only shoes I am wearing out of the house at the moment!

Thankfully the vaccinations went well - both kids were really brave and we were in and out quite quickly. I was glad we could go as a family so hubby and I could take a kid each, even if it meant we took up the entire surgery as they can't have more than 4 people in the (small) waiting room at a time!


Last worn: grey skater dress (above), New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

How You Can Wear It:

A basic, neutral dress is a really versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. You can wear it simply by itself or add a lot more colour and print with accessories or a kimono.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Neutral Dresses, Colourful Scarves and Mulberry Heritage Bayswater Bag

Simple winter workwear for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, adding colour to neutral dresses for the office with bright animal print scarves.

What I wore:

Mulberry heritage Bayswater in Oak NVT leather with leopard print scarf | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | neon leopard print scarf with little black dress trench coat Mulberry bayswater bag for office winter

EarringsJeanswest Evy dangly earring
DressJeanswest tucked ponte black dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

This scarf is such a fun statement piece, a classic little black dress is the perfect outfit to let it shine! An impulse $5 sale buy 5 years ago, it's only gotten 8 wears so far but I love it every time I wear it!

The fit and flare dress is sleeveless, so I did my trick of wearing a tee underneath it, but it was much too cold to consider going coat-less for the photos in the morning! You're only missing a plain grey long sleeved tee I wore under the dress. With the bright scarf being such a focal piece I kept everything else in my outfit neutral with the tan ballet flats and Mulberry Bayswater bag.


Last worn: camel trench, neon leopard print scarf, dangly earrings, fit and flare dress, Marc Jacobs ballet flats, Mulberry Bayswater.

Why I wore it:

A different kind of animal print scarf, featuring the actual animal! This adorably cute scarf was a Christmas gift from my sister and I love the way the red pops against the grey skater dress and the navy macintosh jacket. It's not the first time I've worn this dress with a red scarf, I really like the combination!

As with the outfit above, I let the scarf make the statement and paired the outfit with my classic, go with anything little black ballet flats and Mulberry oak Bayswater tote bag.

How You Can Wear It:

A brightly coloured scarf is a great way to accessorise a classic dress. Changing the scarf makes a little black (or grey!) dress look new each time you wear it. It's a fun and affordable way to accessorise in winter.

Grey Knits And Green Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags

More simple winter mum style: cosy grey knits, with green skinny jeans and two different Rebecca Minkoff Love bags.

What I wore:

green skinny jeans and Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | mum style green skinny jeans grey marle knit paisley print snood playdate outfit winter
ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood
Top: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to take the boys to a local indoor play area, as it had been raining overnight and was predicted to rain more so we couldn't head to the park, but they needed to run around a bit. I picked an easy and comfortable outfit, with my green skinny jeans that have become a frequent go-to this winter, my favourite (and only!) snood and my Converse. The grey knit is one I thrifted before our Europe trip and took overseas with me, it worked well with my olive jeans so I wanted to try wearing it with these brighter green ones. I really liked this combination.

I'd been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff love cross body bag that week so decided to keep wearing it with this outfit, I thought the neutral grey went nicely with the knit.


Last worn: grey knit, Paisley print snood, green skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff love bag.

Other ways to weargrey knit and cobalt scarf, Paisley print snood and little red dress, green skinny jeans with striped tee, Converse and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff love bag worn 30 ways.

Rebecca Minkoff Regular and Small Love Bag Comparison:









What I wore:

grey polka dot foil knit jumper with olive skinny jeans silver glitter runners | away from blue

olive green jeans, Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | olive skinny jeans with grey polka dot foil knit jumper and coral rebecca minkoff love bag
JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Despite following a similar outfit formula, I didn't like this second outfit as much as the first one. I thought the olive skinny jeans would go nicely with this fun foil polka dot print knit, and I did like the combination, especially when I matched the foil polka dots with the silver glitter shoes for a very sparkly outfit. You know I like a bit of matchy-matchy!

With the silver sparkle and then the pop of colour with the coral Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I felt that this outfit was enough as it was and I didn't add a scarf to it. It was a warm day, sitting in the sunshine at the playground, and I was glad I hadn't added the scarf as I didn't really need it.

I did feel that this outfit was missing a little something when I looked at the photos afterwards though, and wish I had added a scarf, I think the first outfit looked great because of the printed snood. A nice outfit, just one that feels a bit flat in the pics.


Last worn: foil polka dot knit, olive skinny jeans, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag.

Other ways to wearfoil polka dot knit and shorts, olive skinny jeans for international flight, silver glitter sneakers and denim shorts, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag with navy.



Grey Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey knit and jeans is a staple mum outfit for winter, especially paired with comfortable shoes like this! To mix it up a little, you can wear colourful denim instead of the classic blue, and add a printed scarf or brightly coloured bag to make your outfit pop.

Matching Shoes and Bags: Atmos&Here Lola Ankle Boots With Skinny Jeans, Tees and Printed Scarves

Should you match your shoes to your bag? This is an old fashion 'rule' that seems to be rarely followed nowadays! I mostly have neutral shoes and bright bags, but when I do stumble across a matching pair of shoes and bag, it's fun to wear them together like I have below, with my tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

These Atmos&Here Lola tan ankle boots are new ones I purchased recently to replace my old ones that literally fell to pieces when I pulled them out of storage this autumn.

What I wore:

ScarfASOS crinkle oversized leopard print scarf
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoes: Atmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots (new purchase)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist making all my accessories match in this outfit! With the bright red skinny jeans I thought the matching neutral tan ankle boots and MAB camera bag would be a good combination. The scarf was needed to keep me warm on a cooler Sunday morning as we went to church, and I think the leopard print, while not an exact match, compliments the bag and ankle boots nicely!

I kept everything else in my outfit neutral to let the red jeans shine - while I've never worn this particular black tee with the grey cardigan before, grey and black are colours I like wearing with these red skinny jeans.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, leopard print scarf, black tee, red skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've shared the boots on the blog as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: grey maxi cardigan and maxi dress, leopard print scarf and ombre knit, black tee and pink shorts, red skinny jeans and matching scarf, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and striped skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: red jeans in second trimester.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: Atmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another very similar outfit combination to the one above! Again I stuck with a cosy cardigan, printed scarf, black tee and bright skinny jeans, accessorised with my matching tan ankle boots and Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

With the bright green skinny jeans being such a burst of colour in my outfit I went with a plain black tee, similar to the outfit above. I added in another colour with the navy waterfall cardigan and geometric print scarf though. Such an easy outfit formula!

I really like the way the matching tan bag and shoes worked with the green and blue in the outfit, they are a nice neutral combination and this made for a simple outfit for a day with the boys, running errands and visiting the library and the playground.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, navy scarf, black v-neck tee, green skinny jeans, tan ankle boots (above), Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above).

Other ways to wearnavy waterfall cardigan worn two ways, navy scarf and little black dress, black v-neck tee for international flight, green skinny jeans and jumper, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and printed shorts.


Tan Ankle Boots Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

If you have a pair of shoes that match a handbag, why not wear them together? You can add extra accessories like a scarf to your outfit to tie in the matchy-matchy even more, or use the matching shoes and bag to 'bookend' a colourful outfit like I have in the second outfit.
