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!

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.

Navy and Green Kimono Outfits With Grey Tees And Micro Bedford Bag

Another Wednesday post! I'm still not back to my regular 3 times a week posting I was pre-pandemic as I just don't get out of loungewear that many times a week yet! But I wanted to share two outfit posts this week, and on Friday I'll have my special annual gift guide post.

Two outfits with similar colour schemes and outfit formulas, but both look very different despite featuring navy kimonos, grey tees, green and the same little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted Equip gold and marble station necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Simple jeans and tee outfit for a busy day with the school run, working from home, and an appointment for my son in the afternoon. The grey tee and the green jeans are a combination I've worn a few times in the past, but I couldn't resist changing it up a little bit this time with the navy tie dye kimono on top. I thought it went nicely with the green jeans and it was a fun bit of match-matchy with the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag, and the navy Havaianas.

I really liked this outfit - nice and comfortable and practical for working from home and rushing around between school pickup and the afternoon appointment. I was glad I'd picked jeans to wear as the wind really picked up in the afternoon and it was actually a bit chilly on our way home from the appointment!





What I wore:

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I really liked the colours in this outfit! Just like the first outfit, it was a grey tee with green and a navy kimono, and that little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This time around though it was olive shorts instead of jeans, as the weather had warmed up a lot. The navy floral print kimono adds even more colour too, as does the green beaded necklace.

I thought that this grey tunic would go nicely with the pull on olive shorts - while they are both very relaxed fits I like the casualness of the outfit with the two loose pieces together, and I felt the long line of the kimono pulled it together a bit more to stop it looking too messy. Again I really liked this outfit! After the school drop off in the morning we went for a walk along our fave trail. Walking around the water was not the smartest idea after the storms that weekend though, especially when I forgot to put on mozzie repellent! I was bitten so much, ended up walking around a lot quicker than normal trying to stop my legs getting bitten 😂

Our grocery order was due to arrive the next day but I'd run out of some things for lunchboxes and it wouldn't arrive early enough in the morning, so had to go for a quick grocery shop after. Was nice to cool off my multiple bug bites in the air conditioning! And I took the opportunity to have a little browse of the shopping centre for some more Christmas gifts as well. I've purchased most of my Christmas gifts (I want to be really organised this year with all the online orders slowing down the postal service a little) but there's always a few extra things to buy!


How You Can Wear It:

Blue and green is a colour combo that should definitely be seen! It's easy to pair any shade of green with navy, as you can see here with the forest green and the olive working well against the navy kimonos.

Colourful Spring Denim Outfits With White Kimonos and Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two colourful spring outfits with denim and kimonos - a frequently worn outfit combination of mine, especially in the warm weather as it's spring right now in Brisbane. However I didn't love both of these outfits equally.


What I wore:

white crochet kimono with printed cami and green skinny jeans navy rebecca minkoff regan bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with printed llama bag charm | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | green skinny jeanas with crochet kimono printed cami navy bag in mangrove boardwalk


JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono c/o
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Cami: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I really liked the idea of this outfit when I planned it out in my head. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag is something I've frequently worn with these green jeans in the past, I like the two together. I thought this printed cami would be a fun addition, a top I hadn't worn in a while. And the white crochet detail kimono was a nice neutral block colour topper over all the print and colour.

We took advantage of the public holiday and headed out on another walk with the kids, through the mangrove boardwalk along the bay. It was a little breezy at home so I anticipated it being quite cool and windy walking along the shoreline, like previous visits, so I wore the jeans instead of shorts. This was a mistake and I was SO hot, there was oddly no breeze coming off the water and I really wished I hadn't worn jeans! Not the best outfit for the day, despite having liked it so much in the morning.





What I wore:

orange and black shorts and tee outfit with digital print kimono statement necklace converse spring style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with marigold orange tee and kimono | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | digital print kimono, marigold bright tee statement necklace shorts and converse spring style

Jacket: thrifted digital print no label kimono
Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, I did wonder a few times if I should have worn jeans instead of shorts! Spent the day with the kids and my mum at the beach, enjoying the sunshine although it was a bit windy and cool in the shade. Was so nice sitting on the sand in the sun though. Even Cooper went in for a paddle into the water and he's not normally a fan of getting wet!

As we didn't have a plan for the day in the morning I'd just picked something comfortable and colourful, with this marigold tee and digital print kimono. I was eager to wear this fun statement necklace again too, it's so light and easy to wear. I did like the black shorts to match the black print on the kimono too, even if I wished they were jeans a couple of times when I got cold! My Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag was great for carrying everything the boys and I needed, although it did end up a little full of sand at the end of the day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos and denim is a style staple in spring! You can add some colour to an outfit with a bright tee, colourful jeans or a brightly patterned kimono itself.

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

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

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

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.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Floral Duster Kimonos With Colourful Skinny Jeans

Slightly cheating with today's Weekday Wear Linkup post, as I only wore one of these outfits during the week - the other I wore on a Sunday when I needed to get the boys out the house. Both incredibly similar though, and definitely the kind of thing I wear through the week for the school run. Duster kimonos just work so well with colourful jeans!

What I wore:

magenta skinny jeans navy tee Jeanswest melanie tropical floral print duster kimono nylon Julian backpack | awayfromblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | floral duster kimono magenta pink skinny jeans

Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Hubby had started doing some yard work so the back yard was off limits for the kids and instead I took them out to run around along our favourite local trail. I decided at the last minute (after I'd taken these pics) to swap to my daggy walking shoes instead of my Converse and I'm glad I did as although we took their bike and scooter we left them at the side of the trail as we headed off the track a few times, and my knee needed the extra support hiking through the bush.

I really liked all the bright colours in this outfit! I wasn't sure about the navy tee with the navy floral print duster but I wanted to give it a try - I think this marle tee was the perfect one to wear with it as it wasn't too matchy-matchy, just different enough to work with the darker navy of the kimono. I matched the necklace and jeans to the print on the kimono too, picking out the tiny pink flowers in the print to wear this marble and gold necklace with my magenta Sass and Bide skinny jeans.

The Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack is my go-to bag for spending time out with the kids, fits all our water bottles and some snacks for the walk nicely!

Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit worn a few days later! Again I picked colourful jeans, Converse, a floral duster and a blue bag. The white tee again matched the print on my kimono, the white florals this time. The olive skinny jeans didn't match and I was worried that the two greens together would be too much, but I think the olive when nicely with the green of the duster and the blue leaf necklace and micro Bedford bag broke up the green nicely. I really liked this outfit!

After the school drop off we spent some time exploring the local trails again before the school pickup in the afternoon. I'm enjoying being able to get out with the kids so much in this nice weather, although I did wish a couple of times I'd worn shorts instead of jeans as it was a really warm spring day!



How You Can Wear It:

Floral dusters are a great spring layer to add to a casual jeans and tee outfit. You can use them to add extra colour or print, or match the colours in the print to the jeans and tee you wear.

Spring Outfits: Skinny Jeans, Converse and 3/4 Sleeve tops

Making the most of Brisbane's spring weather and starting to leave the layers behind! Before it heats up too much I reach frequently for my skinny jeans and Converse. It was nice to leave the scarves and extra layers behind on these warmer days, although I did need to add a denim jacket on a particularly windy spring day!

Both of these outfits feature a bright statement piece too.

What I wore:

pink leopard print jeans with  Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | awayfromblue

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I haven't worn these fun pink leopard print jeans in over a year! I'm trying to stop passing over "special" things in my wardrobe and just wear them anyway, even if I do feel a little overdressed. We didn't have much on this day, the school run and a little walk around the neighbourhood with my youngest while my eldest was at school, but I felt these jeans were overdue a wear!

They do make me happy each time I wear them, and I have worn them with this wrap top before. They look so good with blue! As it was a little windier than expected and threatening rain I added the denim jacket on top - the rolled up sleeves were the perfect length with this 3/4 sleeve wrap top.

The accessories were matchy-matchy too with the blue bag matching the blue wrap top and denim jacket, and the pink and gold necklace matching the leopard print jeans and the gold hardware on the bag! Really liked this outfit, even if it felt a little overdressed in the playground!

Dress: Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold
Pants: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Again I wore my Converse and skinny jeans, this classic neutral grey pair this time. The Converse were probably a mistake though, after the school run the little one and I headed off to check out a new trail and while much shorter than I can manage, the ground was very uneven and rough which was a lot of pressure for my injured knee. Probably should have worn my ugly but supportive walking shoes instead! And should have worn some mozzie repellent too, we both got bitten like crazy!

Did like the way the Converse looked with this outfit though, and the grey skinny jeans with the black and white Chucks were great neutrals to let the marigold orange top pop. I like the way the skinny jeans balance out all the extra soft, cosy and slouchy volume of the dolman top.

To add just a little bit more colour I wore my green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag with this - it really pops against the orange top!



How You Can Wear It:
Skinny jeans and Converse is a mum staple! For something a little different you can try introducing a statement piece, like printed jeans or a bright citrus top.

Two Ways To Wear Marigold Orange Tops With Skinny Jeans

I've been wearing a lot more bright colours lately! Loving yellow as always, but there are a lot of cute orange pieces around for spring too and so I put this post together with two ways I've recently worn marigold orange tops. Both with jeans, but with different colour schemes.

What I wore:

sass and bide playman chevron print skinnies double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | away from theblue

awayfromblue Instagram | double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee printed sass and bide playman skinnies and mini mac

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun outfit! These Sass and Bide chevron print skinny jeans make such a statement on their own, but I thought I'd try the marigold tee with them for something really bold. I did end up adding the denim jacket on top too so it wasn't too much together, and it helped keep me cosy as it was quite a windy day! I really like the double denim with such different coloured denim pieces together, I thought it went well and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and necklace tied in with the blue of the jacket. Blue pairs so nicely with orange!

A comfortable jeans and tee outfit for the school run, spending time scootering around with my son and walking Cooper, and then sports in the evening.





What I wore:

marigold orange dolman kmart top with thrifted green skinny jeans Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack

Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold with green skinny jeans and bright blue backpack

TopKmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

A little more of a colourful combination with this recently purchased top! Admittedly when I ordered it online I thought it was more mustard than orange, despite the marigold name for the colour. It's a stunning bright colour though and oh so comfortable - I saw it working well for the rare zoom meetings I have at work where I want to look bright and cheerful but also be comfortable too, the slouchy oversized style and dolman sleeves are just perfect for that.

As it is such a voluminous top I wanted to balance it out with skinny jeans, but also really have fun with the orange colour so I decided to try these thrifted Asos green jeans with it. Such a fun combination!

The daggy sneakers and the practical Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack were because I headed out with the kids for the day, making the most of the nice weather and the pupil free day to explore along our favourite trail again, visit a new one, and just keep the kids out the house for a few hours so hubby could work from home in peace and quiet! I was so glad I had these comfortable shoes, especially on the second trail as my injured knee was really complaining!

May have been a bit overly colourful for hiking around some trails, considering we didn't bump into anyone else but a snake all day, but it was nice to try a new colour combo. And thankfully the snake slithered away quickly!


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. First time I've shared the top on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

How You Can Wear It:

There are so many different shades of orange around at the moment for spring - it's a really fun colour to wear! You can try it with neutrals like blue denim jackets or black jeans, or go a little bolder and pair it with bright blues and green denim!
