Printed Scarves With Tees, Skinny Jeans And Balenciaga Part Time Bag

Since it was a milder autumn day when I wore these outfits, I added some printed scarves to my casual jeans and tee outfits, no extra layers needed. A scarf is a nice way to add a little more interest to an outfit.

What I wore:

TeeAtmos&Here rolled sleeve oversized tee in wine (similar in black)
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Jeans and a tee, a SAHM staple for a day with the kids! We had a few errands to run and spent some time at the library and playgroup. A really relaxed day.

The outfit felt a little plain though so I added the navy printed scarf for a subtle extra colour, and it was a nice layer for autumn. Even if I ended up taking it off in the middle of the day!

Picked my Balenciaga part time bag to wear as I've been feeling I've been passing over them a lot lately in favour of smaller bags. I liked the size of this one as it easily handled everyone's water bottles, a change of clothes for the boys in case of accidents and some baby wipes.


Last worn: navy mixed print scarf, burgundy slouchy tee, grey skinny jeans, Havaianas, Balenciaga part time bag.

Why I wore it:

I absolutely loved this outfit! I feel it looks a bit off in the photos because I decided to leave the tee untucked over the jeans when I'd normally tuck it in. These nobody denim skinny jeans are quite high waisted so I thought leaving the coral tee untucked was better.

This pretty striped scarf was a Christmas gift from my mum and I was excited to wear it. I wasn't sure how the blush in the print would work with the coral tee but I really liked the combination.

After a few stressful weeks, I had a fun day out shopping with my mum and the boys, getting a few more last minute must-haves off our list for our upcoming trip.

How You Can Wear It:


Printed scarves are the perfect way to add a little extra touch to an outfit. Jeans and a tee is a mum staple, and if you pick plain block colour jeans or a tee then you don't need to worry about the print on the scarf clashing with anything. Such a simple way to accessorise in autumn.

Printed Tanks And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Just like Monday's post, again I'm wearing printed tanks and colourful pants. A bit more casually this time, for my usual SAHM days with the kids.

What I wore:

red skinny jeans cheetah print tank louis vuitton neverfrull converse SAHM play centre outfit | awayfromblue

red skinny jeans with Louis Vuitton damier azur MM neverfull tote bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue | Instagram red skinny jeans converse chucks cheetah print tank LV neverfull tote
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressJeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Every time I think of an outfit combination with these red jeans I'm surprised when I flick through the blog archives and find I haven't worn it before! While I've never worn this printed tank and red jeans together, I really liked the combination, and it seems so obvious. It was a nice effortless outfit for a day with the boys. We headed out to a local play centre I had a soon to expire voucher for and I had a nice time at the cafe with a hot chocolate and a book while the boys played.

Of course I didn't get to enjoy the hot chocolate completely hot, there were some incidents with a smashed ear, a bruised knee and a bleeding nose... the boys had fun though despite leaving with a few injuries!


Last worn: animal print tank, turquoise tassel necklace, red skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote.

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit combination again! I picked the same turquoise tassel necklace, following the printed tank and skinny jeans outfit formula, even sticking with the same Louis Vuitton bag. I did wear sandals instead of Converse though.

This fun printed tank was a great opshop $1 bargain find, and although it has no green in it, I thought it would be fun to wear with the green skinny jeans, also an opshop find! I usually stick with neutrals when wearing these green jeans, I find green a tricky colour to wear, but I decided to be bright and colourful and pair the tank with them. I really liked the colours together!

This was another day that was supposed to be quiet but didn't quite go according to plan! The plan was to go to the library, run a few errands, have an early nap and then go see my friend in the afternoon for our coffee date that we'd had to reschedule a few times with sick kids. Thankfully I managed to get everything done, but with a couple more surprises along the way including a very late doctor's visit that meant a late dinner. One of those eventful days where everything goes wrong! At least I had fun with my friend and the boys enjoyed the library in the morning.

How You Can Wear It

A fun pair of colourful jeans can be so easy to wear! You can keep it simple and pick a neutral colourful tank to wear with them, or be bolder and introduce even more colour to your outfit with a bright tank.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Sleeveless Tanks And Colourful Pants: Business Casual Autumn Style

The best thing about autumn weather finally arriving in Brisbane is the ability to unpack some things from their storage boxes in the wardrobe! Jeans! Scarves! It's nice to have them out again after them being hidden away during the heatwaves.

Colourful pants add a bit of fun to a business casual outfit for the office. And even though one of these pairs is jeans rather than pants, they easily pass as pants in the office (and if they didn't would fit right in to everyone else in my office wearing blue jeans)!

What I wore:

olive pants in office printed tank black blazer part time bag | awayfromblue

printed tank, Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | awayfromtheblue

TopJeanswest Florence print long line tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Totally stealing my boss's style here! This kind of outfit; skinny jeans, a nice top and a blazer, is one she wears frequently in the office in cooler weather. I love pairing neutral pieces with these olive pants so black was an easy choice, and this brown printed tank is an easy neutral to wear. I did feel the outfit was a little flat though so I wanted to add a necklace - decided to step out of my comfort zone a little more and try green with green again. I thought the darker green in this necklace worked well with the olive jeans.

Yes, these are the same jeans I wore last week! I've been thrilled to get them out again with the cooler weather.


Last worn: black jersey blazer, green statement necklace, printed button detail tank, olive jeans, black ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this tank with burgundy, I layered it up with a burgundy scarf for winter before. I really like the way to pastels in the print work with the burgundy pants. I decided to try something a little different and add this pretty pastel shimmer scarf on top too. it matches the pretty but impossible to see on photos peach pastel leaf print in the tank. I really liked the scarf and tank together. I don't usually wear so many pastels but I thought it really worked here.

I just picked a grey blazer to throw on and cover my shoulders in the office.

Got quite a few compliments on this outfit too. Mainly on the scarf, a pretty gift from my mum.

Colourful Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Colourful pants are a nice alternative to classic black for the office, particularly if your office is business casual where you have more options with what you wear. If your office is really casual, you could even pass off colourful jeans as pants by dressing them up with a blazer.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Tanks Worn 2 Ways: In The Office, Casually

A little bit of print mixing for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup! Showing you two different ways to wear striped tanks, in the office and casually, and doing a little print mixing by having spotty accessories with the stripes in each outfit too!

What I wore:

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace

JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Starting to realise you can't see my earrings with my new shorter haircut! 😂 I was so thrilled to wear jeans for once! I wore these a couple weeks ago, excited about the weather cooling down. Green is one of the colours I find tricky to wear and as a result these olive jeans are frequently worn with black - this striped tank seemed like an obvious choice. Added the white kimono as I wasn't sure which of my printed ones would look best with this and wanted to keep it simple!

Couldn't resist adding a little bit of leopard print to this outfit with the printed shoes too - I felt they worked nicely with the striped tank as they are the same colour scheme.

Hubby and I had an appointment to attend that unfortunately was in the middle of the day. We decided to make the most of it and take the day off. It was nice to have some quiet time at home to get caught up with a few must do tasks which are easier without the boys around!

BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I felt this outfit was lacking a little something - this cute blue polka dot scarf that I got as a Christmas present from my mum was the perfect finishing piece to add to the striped tank and pencil skirt and blazer outfit. It was a nice bit of print mixing and extra touch of colour with the grey.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag added a little more colour too! I like how the magenta pops with the grey.

Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic that you can easily dress up or down. Stripes are so fun to print mix with too! Why not try introducing a small accessory with a different print for a subtle take on pattern mixing in your outfit.

30 Ways To Wear Purple Skinny Jeans ~ #30wears Challenge

As I try to move away from blue jeans, I've embraced other colours of denim! This purple pair of skinny jeans is a firm favourite, and the first pair of colourful denim in my collection that I've hit 30 wears with.

30 Ways To Wear: Purple Skinny Jeans


30 ways to wear purple skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue blog


Cost Per Wear

I bought these 'blackberry' purple jeans back in April 2013. I've only been tracking prices with items for the past couple of years, but luckily I wrote on the blog how much I paid for these - $30! At 30 wears, that works out to the '$1 per wear' that seems to be the goal when calculating cost per wear. I'm not bored of these jeans either, despite having them for 6 years, so they will be staying in my wardrobe a little longer!
30 wears over 6 years seems like quite a low amount, but these jeans don't have a lot of stretch so wearing them over my two pregnancies was definitely out of the question! 30 times over say 4 years when you discount the pregnancy and postpartum phases is a bit of a better figure.


30 Ways To Wear Purple Jeans: Video Style






Purple Jeans For A Matchy-Matchy Outfit


5 ways to wear purple jeans with other purple pieces in an outfit | away from blue

If you've been reading my blog a while you'll know I love a little bit of matchy-matchy in my outfits! Having a colourful pair of jeans is a great excuse to continue that colour int eh rest of your outfit - a purple kimono, bag, cardigan or scarf works nicely with the purple jeans. Even if the shades don't match exactly it's a simple way to complete an outfit.


Purple Jeans With Pink


how to wear purple jeans with pink | away from the blue

Pink and purple is a go-to colour combination for me, so of course I've worn these purple skinny jeans with pink pieces! If there's a colour combo you love, try it with a pair of colourful jeans! You can do it in a small way with a pink scarf, or go bigger and pair a pink blazer with purple jeans.


Purple Skinny Jeans With Navy


5 different ways to wear navy with purple skinny jeans | awayfromblue

Blue and purple is another go-to colour combination. When I had my wardrobe detox a few years ago, the stylist was curious why I had so many purple pieces. Because they go so well with blue! A little navy like a printed tank, or a lot of navy like a navy tee or cardigan, any amount works well with purple jeans.


Purple Jeans With Turquoise


3 outfit ideas with turquoise and purple skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue

I could have called this out with the blue option above, but I wore these purple jeans with turquoise so many times it felt right to give it it's own category! I like the deeper purple paired with the bright turquoise, it really brightens up an outfit.


Purple Jeans With Neutrals


how to wear purple jeans 3 outfit ideas with neutrals | away from the blue

You've seen how well these jeans work with other colours, but of course they work perfectly with neutrals too. A bold colourful pair of jeans - or any bold piece in your wardrobe! - will so easily go with neutral pieces. Picking out a neutral piece to wear with something more colourful is a good go-to option when you're not sure what else to wear.


Purple Jeans With Prints


how to wear purple jeans 3 outfit ideas with neutrals | away from the blue

Just like the neutral top option above, a printed top is another fail-safe to wear with purple jeans. As you can see, I favour stripes a lot, but any print, or even a little print mixing, will work well with colourful jeans. Purple jeans make a simple outfit base you can add extra interest to with prints.



Purple Jeans In Winter


5 ways you can layer purple jeans for winter cosy SAHM style outfits | awayfromtheblue

While summer in Brisbane isn't the ideal jeans weather, I do wear them a lot in winter. These purple skinny jeans are such a fun way to add colour to a winter outfit, but still just as cosy and practical as normal jeans. You can see I'm using some of the outfit ideas above here too, with the navy, turquoise and printed pieces worn with these jeans.


Purple Jeans and Tee Outfits

The forever classic outfit, jeans and a tee! Swapping our standard blue jeans for a fun colourful pair like these purple jeans adds a little extra interest to a jeans and tee outfit, while still being just as easy to wear as classic blue.

Navy and Pink Worn Two Ways With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

I really like blue and pink together - I find that any shades of the colours work well! Below I'm wearing two different combinations of navy and pink, with a slightly layered up navy and hot pink outfit, and a simple summer shorts and tee blush and navy outfit.

What I wore:

Tee: newly gifted Jeanswest Ruby frill sleeve Ric Rac detailed tee in deep iris
Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I wore this on boxing day, to make the most of the milder temps (it was only 30⁰C / 86⁰F) and walk off some of the yummy Christmas food we'd been enjoying. Getting out the house for a bit also gave me a chance to wear some of my new pieces I got for Christmas! This pink and gold tassel necklace, fun tassel bag charm on my speedy and navy statement sleeve tee were all gifts from my generous mum, who knows my style so well!

I picked the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag as I wasn't going to carry the big baby around all morning and I just wanted something small and simple to carry everyone's water bottles in. And a little snack for halfway round the trail of course.

You know I like a little matchy-matchy, so I was so happy when I put the blush necklace and shorts together and saw they matched! It was a lovely quiet boxing day, and after our walk we had fun in the afternoon unboxing more of the toys the boys got for Christmas.


Last worn: pastel pink shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the tassel necklace and navy tee as they were Christmas presents.

JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Even though I'm wearing jeans, this pic was taken a couple of days before Christmas, in the middle of Brisbane's heatwave! We had tickets for 'snow 4 kids' which is a big arena setup to resemble a winter wonderland, and long pants and closed in shoes were recommended. Of course as soon as the event was over we got changed back into shorts, it was far too hot in the humidity for jeans.

Such a fun morning playing in the snow though! While the event wasn't as big as I expected, I was still impressed with how much snow they managed to have despite the heat and humidity. I dressed the boys in layers and they ended up changing to just jeans and a tee as it really was warm when you weren't on the snow.

I anticipated the temperatures being cooler around the snow so I layered up my jeans a little adding this fun hot pink crinkle scarf. I like how it popped against the neutral navy tee and grey jeans outfit!

The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere was a necessary bag for the snow - I did slip and fall once so I was glad I'd picked a waterproof bag! There was also a bit of snow flying around in the air too. You can see a little clip of the event in my Christmas vlogs video round up.


Last worn: navy marle tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag (above). First time I've worn the scarf as it's a recent wardrobe addition.

Navy Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Navy is a great alternative to black, and you will find that a navy tee goes with so many other pieces in your wardrobe! It works well with other neutrals like grey, and you can pair it with different shades of pink for a fun pop too. Pink shorts, or simple pink accessories like a necklace or scarf work well with a navy tee.

Navy Tops and Green Pants: Spring SAHM Style (And Instagram Giveaway!)

I've been embracing green and blue together more often recently. It's a colour combination I only started wearing a few years ago. I decided to try it again with green pants and navy tops, this time wearing my olive jeans with navy. I really liked the combination!

What I wore:

Top: Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I had the vague idea for this outfit in my head, I hadn't planned it out the night before like I usually do as we were at a wedding. In the morning I was feeling slightly worse for wear after a couple of glasses of champagne and not having drunk anything alcoholic for a couple years due to pregnancy / breastfeeding! I just wanted simple and easy as there were groceries to buy and kids to amuse. I decided to wear the outfit idea I had anyway, without spending time to see if it looked good. I was pleased to find out I really liked the combination.

Was a nice easy outfit, printed tank and skinny jeans. Perfect for a quiet Sunday, or as quiet as a Sunday can be when you have two boys under 5!

It's not the first time I've worn this Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag with olive, I liked the combination of the aqua and olive together. The necklace was a nice matchy-matchy touch, even if the hardware on the necklace is gold and silver on the bag. I've worn this necklace and tank together before too so I knew I'd like the result.


Last worn: bird print tank, tassel necklace, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Why I wore it:

Another nice and simple outfit. Jeans and a tee to take the boys to the local library for music time and to let them have a play at the playground. Again, I'm wearing the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with gold pieces even though the chain strap on it is silver. I think the gold foil polka dots on the tee didn't look bad with it!

It's not the first time I've worn these green jeans with a blue top, and I've been wanting to try this particular jeans and tee outfit combination for a while. I really liked it, pleased I finally gave it a wear.
