Striped Tanks and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

These striped tanks are firm favourites, and I often post them together! While one is navy and white stripes and the other is black and white stripes they both pair so perfectly with my brightly coloured jeans that I've been wearing more lately, now it's autumn and cooling down.

What I wore:

Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was such a fun day! Some restrictions had been lifted, allowing for both picnics (previously you could only exercise outdoors, not stop and sit) and travelling 50ks from home (previously they recommended staying in our suburbs as much as possible). And while they were relaxing the rules even more the day after this, my sister and I stuck with the current rules on this day and found a spot 50ks between both of us to have a picnic.

We couldn't have asked for better weather - it was a gloriously sunny day, but not too hot, and our picnic spot was mostly deserted, giving the boys plenty of space to run around. As you can see in the insta pic there we had a LOT of space! It was such a nice day and so good to see my sister in person again - while we do frequent family video calls, nothing compares to catching up in person!

While I thought about a pretty dress I realised jeans would be a bit more practical for running around with the kids and their kite - and so I tried to put a little effort in with my hair instead. I did the old no heat overnight curls trick I used to do a few years ago, it turned out okay.

Picked the speedy bandouliere bag as it was fuss free for sitting on the grass, so easy to clean, you just wipe down the canvas!

Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

More relaxed restrictions in Brisbane means the kids are back at school! The early morning start had me reaching for a jacket to cover up my arms and this drawstring waist one I thrifted for $1 back at the start of the year was perfect! It hadn't been worn previously as it had been a warm autumn and we spent most of it isolating at home like the rest of the world.

With the black striped tank and the black jacket, my outfit needed a little extra colour and these bright green skinny jeans were perfect! The first day back at school after an extended break from the virus went well - my son missed his regular routine and I know I'm not as good at teaching as his actual teacher, especially when I had to work from home 3 days a week too.


Last worn: black striped tank, Happiness Boutique necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag (above). First time I've worn the jacket as although I bought it back at the start of the year it's been too warm to wear until now!

Striped Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic and it goes so well with jeans! To add a little extra colour you can try a brightly coloured pair of jeans like these red and green ones, or even introduce a little extra print mixing like I have with the damier ebene speedy bag.

Green and Yellow Worn Two Ways: Jeans and Tee | Weekday Wear Link Up

Jeans and and a tee again! It was my home isolation outfit of choice back when I wanted to get out of pyjamas or loungewear, but also didn't want to put in too much effort if I wasn't going anywhere.

This time I round I paired my yellow tees with green jeans and some cardigans, as the autumn weather had truly arrived in Brisbane and the extra layer was needed. Now it's properly winter and a few more layers are required.

What I wore:

pastel yellow tee with olive skinny jeans and grey cardigan autumn work from home style | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram| grey cardigan with pastel yellow tee and olive skinny jeans
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this yellow tee with olive - it looked nice with my olive shorts so I knew I'd wear it with these olive jeans in the cooler weather. I really liked the combination, i think the muted shades work so well together. I added a necklace for a little bit of extra interest to my outfit and I think with the long necklace and long grey cardigan the tee looked better untucked - it's a bit oversized so I usually tuck it in, but I liked the longer lines of this outfit.

The grey cardigan wasn't quite as cosy as my daggy old bathrobe I usually wear around the house, but it was a more formal choice for a couple of zoom sessions I had on that day!

Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans

BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a much bolder outfit with the mustard tee and the green skinny jeans. Again, this isn't a new colour combination for me, I love wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with these green jeans, but it was the first time I'd worn this mustard tee and jeans together. As it was such a cold morning and I had to pop out to the post office, I added another colour to my outfit with this cosy navy cardigan.

Again, I've worn this navy cardigan with the green jeans before, but I really liked the way the trio of colours worked together in this outfit. Especially with the matching navy necklace! The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag was a nice neutral with all of the colours in my outfit, and it was still packed and ready to go after my last trip out the house a few days before.

A yellow tee is a fun colour to have in your wardrobe! Yellow is a bright pop with a neutral pair of blue jeans but it works well with other colours like green and navy too.

Two Ways To Wear a Graphic Tee With Printed Pieces

With working from home, I'm wearing a lot of tees when I do get out of loungewear or pyjamas. Thankfully over the past few years of motherhood I've realised tees are a wardrobe staple for me and I have a few in my wardrobe!

Today I'm continuing the tee wearing and sharing two different ways I recently wore a couple of graphic tees, both with other printed pieces in my outfit.

What I wore:


navy graphic tee and red printed maxi skirt | stay at home style Away From Blue

Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
Skirtthrifted Billabong 'Don't Think Of It' bikini red printed maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This maxi skirt is a great work from home piece as it's so comfortable with the elastic waist! And all that fabric is like having your legs wrapped up in a blanket 😂

I wear this red maxi skirt with navy a lot, I really like the combination. This is the first time I've worn this graphic tee with it though, I wasn't sure if the print on the tee would be too much with the print on the skirt. Isolating at home was the perfect time to give this new combination a try, as aside from the postman and some neighbours, oh and my in laws, no one saw this outfit. I really liked it though and I'm happy I tried these two things together!


Last worn: navy graphic tee, red printed maxi skirt, Havaianas.

Other ways to wearnavy graphic tee and shorts, red printed maxi skirt and leather jacket.


What Bag I'd Wear With These Outfits:

If I was still using and enjoying my handbag collection and not worried about transferring germs inside the house whenever I swapped them out, this would be the bag I'd wear with these outfits - the metallic silver goes with everything!






What I wore:

floral kimono and primark Edinburgh graphic tee olive skinny jeans | away from the blue

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This was another opportunity to try something new, with a graphic tee and floral print. I wore this when I was so close to 30 wears of this floral kimono, thought I'd try something a little different and wear it with this Edinburgh graphic tee I picked up on our Europe trip last year.  I thought the blue in the graphic would work nicely with the navy kimono. Plus it was a nice way to change it up a little as I've worn this tee and olive jeans together before.

Not 100% sure this worked, not one of my favourite outfits but it was fun to try. And with the olive jeans it was comfortable and warm for a quick trip to the post office after helping the kids complete their online learning at home. So good that the schools are back so I don't have to struggle with online learning for a 4 and 5 year old any more!

How You Can Wear It

A graphic tee is something that looks good with skirts or jeans! To try mix it up a little you can pair a graphic tee with another printed piece in your outfit, like these outfits with the maxi skirt or kimono.

Graphic Tees & Skinny Jeans: Working From Home Style | Weekday Wear Link Up

Keeping it simple for my working from home style during isolation, with graphic tees and skinny jeans. Both of these jeans are extremely comfortable, perfect for sitting at my computer and yet practical for jumping up every few minutes to help the kids with their online learning, or to get them yet another snack 😂

What I wore:

floral kimono, mickey mouse graphic tee and skinny jeans | away from the blue

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

It's crazy to think I first wore this tee a year ago when we were in Disneyland Paris, as part of our Europe trip. Seems like a lifetime ago now, especially with all the changes around the world and the travel restrictions. It was fun to wear this again, I did the cliche "get everyone Mickey tees to wear to Disneyland" thing and I wasn't sure how much wear it would get afterwards but I have worn it a handful of times. Much more than I expected. It's super soft and has such good memories attached.

The floral kimono was needed in the cooler morning, as it was a bit of a dressier option than my usual dressing gown for staying warm! I did end up taking it off at lunchtime though.

Really liked how this outfit turned out - the high amount of stretch in these Nobody denim skinny jeans make them so comfortable to wear!


Last worn: floral kimono, Mickey Mouse tee, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, Havaianas.

What Bag I'd Wear With These Outfits:

While I'm at home my bags are staying in my wardrobe, but if I was wearing these outfits outside the house I'd wear this bag with them. It's the perfect neutral.






What I wore:

awayfromtheblue Instagram | kisschasy blue band tee with olive skinny jeans
Tee: Kisschasy blue tape band tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas


Why I wore it:

Another pair of super comfortably jeans, I actually wore these on our long-haul flights from Brisbane to Europe last year - very comfortable for being at home. Again, it was nice to get out of the pyjamas and loungewear I've been wearing a lot lately while isolating at home with social distancing.

This Kisschasy tee hasn't got a lot of wear - it was from one of their earlier tours, but after Jess had a challenge to wear band tees it got me going through my big box of tees from concerts I went to pre-kids and I found this. I realised this should come into my regular wardrobe, it's fun to wear. I like how the lighter blue went with these olive skinny jeans too! I've worn them a lot with navy in the past, it's nice to try a different shade.


Last worn: Kisschasy band tee, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas (above).

How You Can Wear It:

A graphic tee is a wardrobe staple and looks great with any colour of denim, as you can see here with these different jeans. Isolating at home make sure you pick jeans with a lot of stretch to help you feel pulled together but not uncomfortable!

22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee: Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing a bright and colourful outfit I wore to work from home, and sadly the last wearing of this grey tee, so I'm looking back at the 22 wears I managed to get from it!

What I wore:

work from home colourful style with magenta skinny jeans grey tee and floral navy kimono | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy floral cocoon blanket kimono with grey tee magenta skinny jeans
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Tee: Atmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves
PantsSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate Jeans in magenta
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I adore this tee - so much so that I bought it in three colours! I have a burgundy one, this grey one and a black one. The black one has already left my wardrobe, I was hoping to get this grey tee to 30 wears but this last wear just confirmed to me it's stretched out just like the other black tee, sadly!

The super soft and stretchy fabric has elastane in it, which while making it very soft also doesn't survive a lot of heavy duty washes (and during breastfeeding a while ago I had to wash everything at 60℃, breastfeeding mums will know the pain!). This tee was frequently worn then but seemed to be coping much better than the black one and keeping its shape well. Until I realised I was constantly tugging and pulling at it all day, even though I wasn't doing anything too adventurous and just working from home. I'm sad it's left my wardrobe after just 22 wears, but it did last longer than the black version and it was my own fault not caring for it properly!

Issues with the tee aside, I really liked this outfit! In the cooler morning and with a video call booked in for work, I swapped my usual stay at home loungewear for this slouchy tee and the colourful but cosy floral kimono. I love how the navy with the pink flowers went with the magenta skinny jeans!


Last worn: floral kimono, beaded necklace, grey tee, Havaianas, Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and maxi dress, grey tee and maxi skirt, Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans and blazer.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral kimono at 39 weeks, grey tee in second trimester.


22 Ways To Wear A Grey Tee


Much like the time I showed you 30 ways to wear a (different) grey tee, I wear this a lot with denim! I was hoping to hit 30 wears with this tee but it was just too annoying to wear - I like comfortable clothes, I don't like to be pulling or fussing with what I wear! I also don't like worrying about the neckline creeping down when I'm on a work call!

I got it on sale for $17.46 from The Iconic, back in 2014 when I could never resist an Atmos & Here sale at The Iconic! It's definitely my most worn of the three colours I have this tee in, even though it didn't hit my goal of getting worn 30 times. It works out to 79 cents a wear, which isn't too bad, but I really wish I'd got more wears from it!

Here are some of the ways I styled it over the years:


Grey Tee and Blue Denim

5 ways to wear a grey tee and blue denim | awayfromtheblue

The most classic outfit you can ever have - a grey tee and blue denim. Shorts jeans, a grey tee works in all seasons. And you can always add a necklace, bag or kimono (or all three!) for a little extra colour.


Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfit

3 grey tee monochrome outfit ideas | away from blue

Such a simple way to wear a grey tee - just add something black like a skirt or jeans, and you have an easy monochrome outfit. Adding a bright necklace or bag is a good way to introduce a colour pop if you don't want to stick to just black and white.



Grey Tee and Colourful Pants

5 ways to wear a grey tee and colourful pants | awayfromtheblue

Of course it's not just blue jeans a grey tee works with! I liked wearing this grey tee with my more colourful jeans and pants, the neutral goes with any colour.


Grey Tee and Print Mixing

3 print mixing outfit ideas with a grey tee | away from blue
Taking advantage of this neutral grey tee as the base of an outfit, it lets me add in brightly coloured scarves and even a little bit of print mixing! From the subtle striped cardigan and leopard scarf, or the bolder chevron jeans and magenta skull scarf, the grey tee is a great backdrop for a mix of prints.



Grey Tee and Maxis

grey tees and maxi skirt 6 mum style outfit ideas | away from the blue

A grey tee is as much of a staple in my wardrobe as maxi skirts. It's an easy outfit for a warmer day, this grey tee goes with any colour or print of skirt. I've even layered it over a blue maxi dress before too, as you can see at the bottom there.

Striped Tanks and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff small Chevron Quilted Love Crossbody Bag

This is basically the autumn version of these outfits! I'm wearing these two striped tanks again, instead of maxi skirts this time I'm pairing them with colourful skinny jeans and a little bright Rebecca Minkoff small chevron quilted Love crossbody bag for a pop of colour.

You'll notice the shoes and bag are the same in both outfits - I wore these a couple days apart when I needed something simple and easy to wear without too much thinking, turns out when you are distracted by other things you end up repeating the basics multiple times!

What I wore:

burgundy skinny jeans with black and white striped tank and rebecca minkoff orange love crossbody bag | awayfromblue

burgundy jeans with orange bag Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | awayfromtheblue

Necklace:  thrifted pearl and heart charm long necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Pants: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

I had a rare luxury of a kid-free day off last week! I'd been in a training course most of the week for work which meant changing my work days around to suit the course, leaving me with my normal work day free and child care arrangements already in place. I was in a bit of pain with my knee so decided to change my plans a little and instead of a day at home I headed out for a luxurious relaxation massage. I wasn't sure about being out but figured it might be my last indulgence for a while so I took the opportunity.

I've been going to the physio regularly for my knee since I injured it late last year, but a relaxation massage is a lot gentler than the effective but not always pleasant techniques at the physio! Had a productive afternoon filming some more videos for my YouTube channel afterwards too.

With these burgundy jeans I thought the little peach Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted love bag would be a great choice, and I just needed my wallet, phone and keys as I headed out. I really liked the orange and red together!


Last worn: black striped tank, heart charm necklace, burgundy skinny jeans, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff chevron small love bag.

Other ways to wearblack striped tank and maxi skirt, burgundy skinny jeans with turquoise tank, camel ballet flats and a-line skirt, Rebecca Minkoff chevron small love bag and kimono.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Small Chevron Quilted Love Bag

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Again, sticking with simple things! Another striped tank and pair of colourful jeans! I even wore the same shoes, although I did change the necklace this time. Wanted to be comfortable for the school run and it was a slightly cooler morning so I thought jeans would be a good choice again. The little peach Rebecca Minkoff love bag is something I've worn with these olive jeans before, I really like the green and orange combination! I carried the baby bag too for our water bottles.

Was a bit of a strange day when I wore this - after dropping my eldest off at school the youngest and I went out to the grocery store, we needed some more fruit and bread, nothing big. It was strange seeing some of the empty shelves and then while walking around my phone started blowing up with calls and texts with the news of the first of the office closures as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Which I'd been thinking would have been happening soon.

For the immediate time being, we are going to be putting social distancing in place - so we sat out on all our usual activities over the weekend, I think like many people across Australia. What that means for us this weekend and in the weeks to come I don't know. I also don't know how much I'll be in the office and how much I'll be working from home as it seems to change day to day!


If I'm not going out I'm not getting dressed into something other than lounge wear so I don't know what will happen blog-wise (at the moment I'll still have to do the school run at least) but there are bigger things in the world to focus on. I do have a couple more posts scheduled before I run out of outfit pics. The difficulty of sharing pics of what I actually wear I guess! I'll try keep this blog as light and fashion focused as I can - we all need a break and a bit of frivolity now and then.

How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great basic - especially when worn with another wardrobe staple, skinny jeans! For something a little different you can break away from the blue jeans rut with a colourful pair of denim instead.

Peplum Tops Bright Skinny Jeans And Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

I might be trying to stay away from the blue jeans rut but there's no denying jeans are a mum staple! I paired some of my colourful skinny jeans with anther great mum-friendly piece, peplum tops (perfect for hiding a mum-tum!). Accessorised both these outfits with my go-to Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bags.

What I wore:

Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

If you haven't been following along on Instagram, I'm on a quest to take outfit photos near all the jacaranda trees we pass when we are out 😂 A sure sign of spring in Brisbane, when everything is blanketed in beautiful purple flowers for a few short weeks.

I took the boys out to a local park and drove down this street - I knew it would be the perfect spot for photos. I may have picked this street to drive by because my friends took beautiful wedding photos here with the jacarandas, ha! You can see them lined up the street behind me there too. With two young kids though I needed to stick to the paths so picked this not too tall tree to pose by. My youngest boy decided to spend his time waiting while his brother took pics searching for the perfect fallen jacaranda flower to give me, and once he picked it he just couldn't wait on the sidelines any longer! You can't see as I cropped him out of that first photo, but he stood close by and in the frame of every shot after giving me the flower, ha!

That's life with toddlers though - and I like the photobomber outtakes as they have his cute little face in them! Photos done and flower safely stored away we spent a few hours in the playground.

Outfit wise I kept it simple, this comfortable peplum tee was a great neutral with the bright red skinny jeans. Both the tee and jeans were thrift finds, as is the statement necklace. The metallic silver mini MAC bag seemed like a good neutral to accessorise with.

These purple jeans are often worn with blue, and they are the first thing that came to mind when this navy bird print peplum tank popped up on my Instagram archive - it inspired me to get the tank out again. I'm sure I'm not the only personal style Instagrammer being inspired to pull pieces out again or try outfit combos after seeing things pop up on the Instagram archive! With the pink bird print I went with pink accessories: the blush necklace and the neon pink mini MAC bag was an extra burst of colour.

As it was forecast to rain most of the day we headed around the furniture stores and Ikea, keeping out of the worst of the weather and missing the storms entirely.


Last worn: bird print peplum tank, blush and rose gold necklace, purple skinny jeans, Havaianas (above), neon pink mini MAC.

How You Can Wear It:

A peplum top is a great piece to wear with jeans. Super comfortable and great for hiding a mum-tum or a food baby, it's a nice little frill detail that elevates a tank or tee. For an extra bright outfit, you can try wearing a pair of colourful jeans instead of a classic black or blue pair.
