Skinny Jeans, Bright Tanks and Kimonos With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Spring weather means kimono weather for me! I'm wearing really simple outfits below with bright tanks and skinny jeans, you know I love my simple outfit formulas. I also love how the addition of a kimono makes a simple outfit a little more interesting.

What I wore:

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in chartreuse

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This was a last minute thrown together outfit. We'd had a quiet day, with the overcast and rainy weather, and then got an invitation in the afternoon to go out for dinner that evening. I picked my brightest tank to offset the gloomy evening. It's not the first time I've worn this mustard tank and bag together, it's a combination I love even though the shades of yellow don't match exactly.

With the mustard tank and bag, I kept everything else in the outfit neutral. I really loved this kimono with the grey skinny jeans. Everytime I wear them together (like here) I always like the resulting outfit. No exception this time around, again I loved this. I appreciated that this kimono is really just a giant blanket so it kept me cosy when we stepped out of the restaurant at the end of the night!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum

Why I wore it:

There must be something about these jeans! Once again I unsuspectingly wore them to playgroup, where ti was another messy play day. I did really well, watching the boys from a distance and keeping fairly clean until right at the very end. The boys were playing with pigs in 'mud' (cornflour, cocoa and water) and apparently the pigs liked to cannon ball in from great heights. I wasn't standing far enough back so got a bit splashed.

I didn't mind myself and the boys were soaked through as due to the cocoa it all smelled quite lovely, haha! We got some strange looks in Woolies grabbing groceries on the way home later though!

Messy morning aside, I really liked this outfit! These purple pants are frequently worn with blue, and I loved the bright tank with the darker purple. With the bright blue tank, navy floral kimono and purple mini MAB tote bag, I really liked all of the colours in this outfit. It felt so spring-like!

Bright Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Add some colour to your outfit with a plain but colourful tank! It's so easy to wear with jeans to add an extra touch of colour to your look. If you're unsure how to wear a bright tank, try pairing it with neutral layers like in the first outfit. You can go bold and pair it with other complementary colours like the second outfit if you prefer.

Grey Tees, Green Pants and Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

When I picked up a couple of pairs of green pants in the opshop I knew they'd push me out of my comfort zone a little - green is a colour I find tricky to wear. I did my usual round of thinking when considering new purchases and thought of at least two ways to wear them before I bought them. With grey tees was of the original ways I thought of wearing them. It's like a default when I'm not sure how to wear something - wear it with a grey tee! A neutral grey tee is a wardrobe-must have for me.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

Teee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

We decided to spend the morning at Brisbane's Green Heart Fair. It's a fair around being green and environmentally friendly, with shows and displays and even free trees. So it's obvious to see why I picked my green skinny jeans to wear and my family tree print scarf, ha! I've worn the scarf and jeans together before, but the combo seemed even more fun given our destination. The silver mini MAC bag seemed like a nice neutral with the colourful jeans.

We had a bit of a late start to the day but we still made it in time to see a show from PJ Masks - something the boys were very excited about. (Don't worry if you haven't heard of them either, I hadn't. Apparently they've seen it or heard about it at daycare or their grandparents?). Was a fun show for the kids and they had a great time dancing around and being super heros.

The day warmed up a lot too, I added the scarf in the morning as it was a bit breezy but I considered taking it off around lunch time. Such a beautiful spring day.

While I loved my outfit and the boys loved the show (and getting to 'drive' a bus) the highlight for me was bumping into Rachelle and her lovely family! One of the friends I've made on YouTube this year.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC






What I wore:

skinny cargo pants with parrot print scarf grey tee and denim jacket | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram | grey tee denim jacket cargo olive cargo pants aqua mini mac bag
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket

Jeans: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

This was also a nice warm spring day, but I needed the denim jacket on top for out outing to the ABA. It's held in a church hall, so it's quite a cold space. I took it off later in the day though!

It was nice being able to get my denim jacket out again, one of those pieces that really seem to welcome spring for me. The parrot print scarf was a nice way to add more colour to my outfit too. The green in the print makes it a frequent go-to for me when I'm wearing anything green! I thought it paired really nicely with the olive cargo pants.

I was going to wear my silver ballet flats with this outfit, but I felt the bow detail and pointed toe was a little too formal for such a casual outfit. These classic black flats seemed like a better choice.

The aqua mini MAC bag I wasn't sure would work with the olive at first, but I ended up really liking this new combination! When you're trying out a new colour combination, including a handbag is a nice way to give it a go without committing to wearing it all day, as you don't always need your bag on your shoulder all the time once you get to your destination.

Blue Wrap Tops And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Sometimes I'll look through my wardrobe for something I want to wear and come across something I haven't worn in a while. These wrap tops haven't been worn recently and were definitely overdue a wear, so I set them aside waiting for an opportunity to wear them. I decided they would look great with my colourful jeans.

The resulting outfit formulas below are exactly the same, with a wrap top, cosy scarf, skinny jeans and Louis Vuitton neverfull bag. But with the different colour schemes I think they look completely different.

What I wore:

blue wrap top, family tree print scarf with green skinny jeans LV neverfull tote | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM Damier azur neverfull tote and green skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | blue and green skinny jeans wrap top neverfull and tree print scarf outfit
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl Family tree scarf in blue and navy (c/o)
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

An early start and a busy morning meant I wanted a simple and fuss free outfit. I always enjoy this wrap top when I wear it as it's so cosy and soft. The only downside to it being chilly in the morning and needing a scarf is that the scarf kind of covers up the wrap detail of the top, ha! You can see it better the last time I wore it here.

When I bought these green jeans I thought they were something to challenge me and make me try different things, as I usually find green tricky to wear. But I've been finding these jeans work with so much! I've been wearing them so frequently lately. I love blue and green together so expect to see me wearing them that way a lot more often! Sticking with simple block colour pieces makes an outfit come together really quickly. It made it a simple choice when picking a scarf to wear too, as I didn't have to worry about the family tree print clashing with the clothing I was wearing. I think the navy tree part of the print matches the shade of blue in the wrap top quite nicely too!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote as I needed a big bag to cart everything around in as hubby and I had a busy day full of appointments and errands.


Last worn: wrap top, family tree scarf, green skinny jeans, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote.

TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

While blue and green is a fairly new colour combination for me, I've always loved red and blue together. I was quite surprised to see that I've never worn this navy wrap top and these red jeans together before! They seem like such an obvious pairing.

The scarf was a last minute addition to my outfit, as the day was off to a cooler than expected start. On this morning there was a dust storm in Brisbane so everything was just a little hazy and the early sunlight was very golden! Last time I wore this poppy print scarf it was with navy and I really liked the combination, so I was happy to wear it with the same colour again. Again, the scarf does cover up the wrap design of the top a bit though!

We had a busy morning with a dentist appointment for the eldest followed by swim lessons. This was an easy and comfortable outfit for all of that. The big Louis Vuitton wasn't really needed as I wasn't carrying all that much, I just thought it went nicely with the rest of my outfit.

Blue Wrap Tops Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A plain blue wrap top is a really easy piece to wear - you can wear it with prints, or simply with jeans. A colourful pair of skinny jeans is a bold way to colourblock your outfit, and a fun way to wear a colour combination that you already love, or want to try out!

Basic Tees, Prints, Black Jeans and Metallic Flats with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The one benefit to Brisbane's lovely spring weather suddenly being replaced with a wet and cold spring week is that I got to continue to layer for a little longer. I took the opportunity to try some bolder outfits, with a little print mixing in the first outfit and some bright colours in the second outfit. Despite the very different resulting outfits, the formula was the same with basic tees, black jeans and metallic ballet flats.

What I wore:

print mixing skinny jeans and red tee outfit: skull scarf and stripes | awayfromblue

 Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag on arm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | plain red tee with black print mixing skull scarf and stripe outfit
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
Scarfred and black skull print scarf
TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I wanted to wear this Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag again, I had worn it over the warmer weekend and really liked it so decided to wear it on this day too. Even though the shades of red with the plain tee, skull scarf and Avery bag are all different, I liked how well they worked together with the black.

This wasn't the outfit I had planned! Hubby and I had another kid-free morning with an appointment and then a lunch date. I'd picked out a dress to wear but the cold and rainy morning made me change my mind and go for a staple skinny jeans outfit. It was a good excuse to give this striped duster a wear too, a bit too cold for winter wear but perfect for spring.

We had a productive morning, but I did regret the striped duster outfit choice when we headed to the bay for lunch - it was really cold and windy, not perfect stroll along the beach weather as we'd hoped. Lunch was good though, and I did really like the print mix of the skull scarf and stripes together. I love pairing my skull print scarves with stripes for a bit of print mixing.


Last worn: striped duster, skull scarf, red tee, prima skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff  micro Avery bag.

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram | SAHM style printed skinny jeans monochrome outfit with colourful bold accessories
JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan

TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
PantsSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

After being too cold on the windy day above, I picked a cosier topper for this outfit, my black belted cardigan. It's the belt you can see hanging down in the insta photo, in case you were wondering! It was much warmer for a busy but cold day, with daycare for the boys, working from home, and then my son's specialist appointment in the afternoon.

You might recall I mentioned when I bought this tee that it's actually a dark green! It really does look grey in particular lights, and looks so grey here with the black cardigan and printed jeans.

I picked the bright accessories as I remembered this old outfit with the orange scarf, olive tee and aquamarine bag. I thought I could recreate it with this orange crinkle scarf. I really like the aqua and orange combo, and it really pops with the monochromatic outfit. I love how the chevrons on the jeans tie in with the crinkle texture on the scarf - although that wasn't planned, a happy coincidence I noticed when I reviewed the photos!


Last worn: black belted cardigan, dark green tee, orange crinkle scarf, chevron print jeans, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

Basic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A basic block colour tee is a wardrobe staple and so easy to dress up or down. With a plain tee, you can add interest to your outfits in other ways. It makes print mixing easy as the plain tee goes with any other prints you want to wear. Of course if you aren't a fan of print mixing, you can use a neutral basic tee as the base of an outfit you add colourful accessories too, as I've done with the scarf and bag in the second outfit.

Second Hand Shopping: Black Tees and Green Pants With Balenciaga Day Bag

Second hand shopping, opshopping, thrifting, whatever you call it. It's a big factor towards letting me continue to shop even though I'm working part time with two kids and much less disposable income than before!

The two outfits before show some of the secondhand pieces in my wardrobe. With the exception of the shoes, because I can never find shoes my size in an opshop! And the scarf I threw on at the last minute.

What I wore:

SAHM style black space dye tee green asos petite skinny jeans opshop finds | away from blue

Balenciaga truffle brown day hobo bag classic RH | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | black tee green skinny jeans opshop finds thrifted outfit glitter shoes Balenciaga day bag
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers (new purchase)
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

With a warmer day, I was able to just wear a tee with no scarf or cardigan needed. It was a nice sign of winter coming to an end, even if it immediately got cold again afterwards.

While I do love splurging on accessories, I have a much lower budget in mind when clothes shopping! I think this outfit showcases that nicely.

The black space dye tee was a piece I picked up at the 'fill a bag for $2' sale at my local opshop. The green pants were just $5 from a different opshop. The bag was a preloved find from Designer Archives, a consignment store in Brisbane city. The only new thing in this outfit was the shoes, a $8 Kmart bargain!

While the warm weather meant a scarf was definitely not needed, I did think about wearing a necklace. I decided to give it a miss and just let the glitter shoes be the highlight of the outfit. Even if we weren't doing anything more special than running a couple of errands and going to the doctors, it was nice to have a bit of sparkle to do so! These were so comfortable for a first wear too.


Last worn: space dye tee, green skinny jeans, Balenciaga day bag. First time I've worn the silver shoes on the blog as they are a recent purchase.

Taken back when I had turned the spare room into a walk in wardrobe room, it's the most recent video I have showing my complete handbag collection - a lot of which were bought pre-loved.

Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
Pants: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants
Shoes:  Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

Another thrifted outfit, although I added the scarf at the last minute. Like the shoes, the scarf was bought new, but on sale.

Just like the outfit above, this long sleeve black tee was picked up at a 'fill a bag with clothes for $2' opshop sale. I'm really happy with it, and knew that I wanted to wear it with these olive cargo pants. They were also an opshop find, from the same opshop (although before the $2 sale!). They were just $3. They are so slouchy and insanely comfortable.

As it was a little chilly in the morning for daycare drop off I added this paisley print snood - I think it was the perfect piece with the colours in the outfit, and I think it made the outfit. Once again, the accessories were the most expensive part of my outfit. I definitely have a formula I follow with outfits!

Green Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Green pants can be simple to wear when you pair them with neutral basics like these black tees. It makes an easy stay at home mum outfit that doesn't require a lot of thinking to pull together. Just what you need in the morning rush trying to get yourself and kids ready and out the door on time!

Brisbane Bloggers Brunch 2018 Vlog! Plus Jewel Toned Tops and Skinny Jeans Outfits

With two busy days planned, I went with a casual and comfortable outfit formula. Skinny jeans and jewel toned tops, accessorised with Rebecca Minkoff Love bags and some cosy scarves. I included a vlog of one of the days below, it was so much fun and a different kind of thing from what I'd normally do so I hope you enjoy watching it.

What I wore:

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I wore this to the Kids Business Brisbane Blogger's Brunch! I've been invited along to a few of them, but this is the first one in Brisbane, and as I didn't have anything else planned for the day I decided to go. I was a little nervous about it all, so I stuck with pieces I knew I'd love. This cute boho blouse, my favourite grey skinny jeans and my cute little Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag, as I was able to go kid free for the day.

The purpose of the brunch was to meet and get to know some brands, a few which I have had the pleasure of discussing projects with so you might see them pop up in future. You can view the video below for all the fun of the day - including what happened when I used power tools! Multiple power tools! 😂

It was a warmer day than expected so I definitely didn't need a jacket, I even regretted the cosy scarf a couple times, but the venue was air conditioned so I didn't mind too much once I was inside.


Last worn: navy blouse, paisley print snood, grey skinny jeans, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag.

Other ways to wearnavy blouse worn two ways, paisley print snood and shift dress, grey skinny jeans and monochrome outfit, metallic ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff coral Love bag and a blazer.

Why I wore it:

Another busy day, with again a few kid free hours. It doesn't happen often so hubby and I took advantage by powering through a to do list, with a bit of driving around. Again, it was a warmer day so I didn't need a jacket. The fun parrot print scarf (another one I got for my Fashion Scarf girl brand rep role) was just the perfect piece with the rich teal henley. I loved the colours in this outfit.

Unlike the outfit above, I kept things simple with my handbag and went with my neutral Rebecca Minkoff grey Love cross body bag instead of a colourful one, letting the scarf be the extra colour and print in my outfit.


Last worn: teal henley, Prima skinny jeans, Walnut Melbourne flats, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it's a recent (c/o) addition to my wardrobe.

How You Can Wear It:

Jewel toned tops go great with denim! The neutral skinny jeans I'm wearing here are a perfect choice, and you can always add a further touch of colour to your outfit with accessories. Could be a bright bag like the coral one with the navy top, or the parrot print scarf with the teal henley.

Foil Print Tees, Waterfall Cardigans, Skinny Jeans and Mini MAC

Feeling a little uninspired with my winter wardrobe, I decided to go through and pick out some of my favourite pieces, these foil print tees, and build outfits around them. With cosy scarves and cardigans, as I wore them a few weeks ago when winter was in full swing in Brisbane.

What I wore:

red cardigan, black jeans, ankle boots foil print tee, aqua mini MC SAHM Style | awayfromblue

red cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram red cardigan feather scarf foil polka dot tee black skinny jeans
JacketJeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
Scarf: grey and gold embroidered feather scarf
TeeJeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I kind of threw this outfit together, thinking that I liked navy and red together, I love the little aqua mini MAC bag with the red cardigan, and the gold embroidered feathers on the scarf tied in with the foil polka dots. Reviewing the photos I'm not 100% happy with it, I think having something more than just the embroidery on the scarf and foil on the tee matching would have looked better. And maybe tucking the tee into the jeans!

Just one of those outfits where you love all the pieces individually but you're not too sure they all work together in one outfit!

This was a comfortable outfit though, and quite quick to pull together as I was in a rush to get the boys out the house. Still at that point where we try to do things in the morning and get home in time for naptime!

Why I wore it:

Followed a similar outfit formula to the one above, with a waterfall drape cardigan, skinny jeans and a foil print tee. I liked this outfit much more though - perhaps because of how much I love blue and purple together. I liked the outfit so much that when I spilled a little something on it while rushing out the door and it wouldn't brush off with just water I just rearranged the scarf to hide it, ha!

This taupe skull scarf isn't just a good stain hider, it's also a nice neutral with the colourful navy cardigan, purple jeans and aquamarine mini MAC bag.

We got to playgroup to discover that it was a messy play day - it had completely slipped my mind and so I cringed every time one of the boys covered my outfit in something else sticky. They had a blast though, and true to the lovely organiser's words, all of the food colouring and flour and stains washed out of our clothes after. Even that stain I'd spilled on my tee before we left the house!

Foil Print Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Foil print tees are a fun addition to your wardrobe. They feel a little dressier than a plain tee, but are still just as easy to wear. On a colder day, just add a scarf, cardigan and skinny jeans for an easy mum-friendly outfit.
