Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Maxi Skirts With Printed Scarves and Slouchy Tees, Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag

Sharing some casual outfits I wore through the week for today's Weekday Wear Linkup!

You know I love my maxi skirts, especially striped ones! It's fun to introduce another print to a striped skirt by adding a statement scarf, especially if you're wearing a basic block colour tee. Such a simple yet colourful way to dress for spring.

What I wore:

pinstripe maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

monochrome grey pinstripe maxi skirt tassel scarf pink rebecca minkoff darren bag spring playground style
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Top: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

I loved this outfit so much! The maxi skirt is a delicate pinstripe so it looks more grey in pics, but I feel in person you can see the navy pinstripe a bit better (and in the bag closeup shot). I thought it would be fun to match the stripes on the skirt with a striped scarf, and this one added a great touch of colour to the grey outfit. I really like pink and grey together, so wore my Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag to add a little more pink (and to match the blush stripes in the scarf nicely).

A simple and comfortable outfit for a quiet Friday with the kids - we went to the playground in the morning, picked up a few groceries on the way home, and then did some baking. I made a savoury pancake that I used to make for the boys when they were little. They each took one bite and decided they didn't like it anymore, ha! Oh well!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

A bit of an early morning photoshoot! I set my alarm a little earlier than the boys get up to have some quiet time to myself each morning - I read my bible, do a little bit of blog work and then get them up and get their breakfast before we all get dressed for the day. When I woke up on this Monday morning and saw the fog, I decided instead of relaxing to get up, get dressed, and go out to snap some photos.

I went out on the street to get a better pic of the fog, and passed one of my neighbours. Luckily, it's easy to explain why you're carting a camera and tripod around when the streets are so foggy - he was happy with my "taking pictures of the fog!" explanation and it was easy to move a little further down the street and be hidden by the fog so he couldn't see, ha! But I think I'll stick to backyard photos!

I'd planned to wear this navy tee as I knew it would match so nicely with the navy stripes in the maxi skirt, but I did have to add the denim jacket as I went out the door as it was a little chilly at 6am, even with the big bright scarf. I thought the navy and pink combo was a fun one, even though the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag doesn't match the pale pink diamonds on the scarf exactly it was a nice combination. I ended up taking the scarf and denim jacket off later in the day when out with the boys as it warmed up so nicely!


Last worn: denim jacket, pink diamond scarf, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag (above). First time I've posted the navy tee and striped maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

How You Can Wear It:

Matching Bags and Scarves With Grey Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts For Spring

Enjoying wearing some of my recnt(ish!) purchases to create some casual and comfortable spring outfits. I love these striped maxi skirts I thrifted back in August and the scarves and bags add the perfect pop of colour for spring.

You might know from reading my blog I love my bright handbags, and I have shared various ways to match them to my outfits before (matching to shoes, matching tees, matching necklaces, etc). Today I'm keeping it simple and matching the accessories together by picking scarves and bags that are similar shades.

What I wore:

awayfromblue Instagram vertical striped maxi skirt with grey tee mustard yellow accessories matching scarf and bag
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard (new purchase)
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I was hopeful that this mustard crinkle scarf would pair nicely with my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and was so pleased to see they look great together! While not the exact same shade I think they compliment each other nicely, and were a fun combo with the neutral outfit. As it was a cooler morning, I added the denim jacket to the slouchy grey tee and vertical striped maxi skirt. We had church in the morning too, which is often a little colder with the aircon so the denim jacket was a good choice. Even if I did take it off after church in the heat of the day.

Even though the bag has silver hardware, I thought the gold mouse flats went nicely with the mustard accessories - and they are such fun shoes to wear!


Last worn: denim jacket, mustard crinkle scarf, grey tunic, gold mouse flats, mustard micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the vertical striped maxi skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another simple grey tee and striped maxi skirt with some colourful accessories! This beautiful diamond print scarf has so many colours in it, but I knew I wanted to try wearing it with the equally bright neon pink mini MAC bag. I really liked the two pieces together, and they were the perfect touch with the outfit. The pinstripe maxi skirt always seems so grey in pics, even though it's a fine navy pinstripe. This paired with the darker grey v-neck tee made it a bit monochrome, so the pink was fun to break up the grey a bit!

Simple and colourful outfit for a day with the boys - we spent some time at the playground, library, and a quick visit to our old house, so a pretty busy day.


Last worn: grey tee, black ballet flats, neon pink mini MAC bag. First time I've worn the diamond print scarf and maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

Grey Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple, and looks great with a striped maxi skirt. To add some colour to the neutrals, you can go for bright and bold scarves, with matching bags to make your outfit even more colourful. Perfect for spring.

Floral Swing Dresses With Mustard Bags and Ankle Boots

With the warmer spring like weather near the end of winter, I took the opportunity to wear some of my pretty floral dresses. Florals? For spring? ... Groundbreaking. 😂

I did layer them up just a little with ankle boots and denim jackets for the colder winter mornings and evenings too, as it was August (the end of winter in Brisbane) when I wore these.


What I wore:

Balenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH | awayfromtheblue

drinks at Mr Percivals night out outfit spring brisbane mustard floral zaful ruffle dress ankle boots

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagBalenciaga envelope clutch in 2012 mangue with giant 12 RGGH

Why I wore it:

After a busy day, I quickly got changed into something a little more fun for drinks with some other Brisbane Instagrammers. I'll take any excuse to wear this pretty mustard floral swing dress, it works so well for ankle boots and was perfect for dinner and drinks by the river. I thought that the mustard Balenciaga envelope clutch would be a nice bit of matchy-matchy for it too, although I did regret that decision later in the night! I managed to get my deliciously greasy burger all over the delicate Balenciaga leather, and despite borrowing a baby wipe from an amused and confused dad we saw nearby, the grease didn't come off. I tried cleaning it when I got home later that night, and the day after, but it's going to permanently have a mark :(

Definitely will be a fun story to tell every time I use this clutch though. I am a little upset as the clutch was pristine and so well cared for, and so far out of my budget now, but no bag stays pristine forever!


Last worn: tassel earrings, denim jacket, navy and gold bead necklace, mustard floral dress, Acne Pistol boots, Balenciaga envelope clutch.

Why I wore it:


Another floral dress with an adorable mustard bag. Luckily, I managed to keep this mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag clean, even after the boys had a chocolate cookie at church and when I had our latest fluffy family member join me for photos! She is very interested in my photo taking, unlike our Shih Tzu Cooper who is over it after watching me snap pics for years 😂

While I haven't worn this navy floral swing dress with the denim biker jacket and tan ankle boots before, I have worn it with other denim jackets and ankle boots in my wardrobe and I really like this combination! The mustard bag was a fun pop of colour with the navy and this was an easy outfit for church.

Floral Swing Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral swing dress might be a bit predictable for spring, but it's such a cute outfit! On a colder day or night a denim jacket and ankle boots can help keep you warmer, and this works in autumn too. Adding a fun bright bag like these mustard yellow ones to your floral dress is a great idea to add even more spring-like colour.

Space Dye Tees With Bright Scarves and Colourful Skinny Jeans

Adding colour to two neutral space dye tees with scarves and different shades of denim.

I recently thrifted these two space dye tees, bringing my collection up to 3 space dye tops, all thrifted! Maybe space dye was a trend a while back and now everyone is over it? I am really loving it though, it's a nice twist on an otherwise basic tee. Both of these tees were pieces in my "fill a bag for $5" opshop sale haul.

What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top (new purchase)
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Was thrilled to get this tee new with tags in the opshop! It's just a Kmart one and the original price sticker wasn't very high but it's good to be able to give new life to a piece someone kindly donated rather than throwing away.

The black dye running through this white tee makes me a little more confident wearing it. I'm a bit clumsy so white is not my usual go to colour, but the different colours in this make it easier to wear and hopefully will make anything I do spill on it less noticeable 😂

Went matchy-matchy with this, wearing my red Alexander McQueen skull scarf and skinny jeans together. The red jeans were also a thrift find! The blue denim jacket was a nice way to wear double denim but I ended up taking it and the scarf off and on through the day as it heated up.

A busy day of getting things done as I was kid free! Tax return done, more Christmas shopping done and after running a few more errands I treated myself to a massage!


Last worn: denim biker jacket, red skinny jeans, red skull scarf, black Ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag.  First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Wearing more new (and new to me!) things for a busy day. We had a playdate in the park after swimming lessons, and another Lion King toy swap day, and our new fluffy family member was being dropped off before I went out for the night with some Instagrammers. It was busy but manageable until... just as we were leaving the park my son poked himself in the eye with a stick.

Added a trip to emergency to our crazy day, but thankfully the scratches were minor and we were seen pretty quickly and on our way home again to get things ready for our fluffy guest.

I like mustard and olive together so this newly purchased scarf was an obvious choice when I wanted to add a little more colour to the neutral olive jeans and peplum tee outfit. I think it worked nicely with the emerald green of the bag too! The green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag is another new purchase too!

Despite the hectic day, I liked this comfortable outfit and this tee has become a firm favourite! Such a great opshop find. I had a quick change into something more suitable for drinks and a night out - after the hectic day I was looking forward to just relaxing, and changing out of this dirt and tear stained outfit after the stick incident!


Last worn: olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag. First time I've worn the scarf and tee on the blog as they are recent purchases.

Space Dye Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic tee is a wonderful wardrobe basic for mum life and a space dye effect adds just a little more interest to a neutral piece. It's so easy to change up the look each time you wear it by adding colourful accessories like scarves, bags, or bright jeans.

3 Ways To Wear Band Tees: #sparklePunchMusicMonth

A bit of a bumper post today, sharing 3 outfits in one! The wonderful Jess decided to do #SparklePunchMusicMonth on Instagram in August and invited people to join in. I couldn't turn down the chance to get some of my band tees out and reminisce about my favourite concerts and memories!

I ended up wearing three different band tees through the month, which resulted in three different ways to wear band tees I wanted to show you. Because everyone loves a good graphic tee!

What I wore:

monochrome skinny jeans converse band tee outfit with sliver mini mac bag | awayfromblue

monochrome black outfit with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome black skinny jeans band tee outfit silver bag
JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan
Tee: Kisschasy The Final Roar band tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This band tee was one I bought at the final Kisschasy show before the band called it quits. It was a wonderful finale, even if I spent the time up the back away from the crowd as I was pregnant at the time!

A classic black and white tee with a fun print, this is a permanent fixture in my wardrobe, even if I don't wear it much. It was good to get it out again! I decided to copy the colour scheme from the tee in my outfit, sticking to black and white with the black belted cardigan, Nobody Denim skinny jeans and black and white Converse. The metallic mini MAC bag worked so nice with the monochrome.

Simple monochrome outfit for a quiet Monday with a library and playground visit.


Last worn: belted cardigan, band tee, skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

What I wore:

red printed maxi skirt with  Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram denim jacket printed maxi skirt converse spring band tee outfit
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Tee: Kisschasy blue tape band tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another Kisschasy band tee, but a much more colourful outfit this time! Wore this for a warmer winter day at the playground with the boys. This Kisschasy tee hasn't been worn on the blog before, it was one of the ones in my "band tee storage box" and from one of their earlier concerts that my sister and I went to. In fact I think this tee may have been my sisters at one point?

I loved wearing it though, and I thought the blue tape print (that spells out Kisschasy) worked well with the red maxi skirt. Again I stuck with converse, comfortable shoes for running around the playground. The denim jacket I actually took off while being in the sun, it was a really warm winter day, almost summer-like! Sideways Instagram outfit pic courtesy of my 5 year old who thought that it was so funny to take the photos on an angle and we all had a good giggle!

Again I wore a Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, this time this adorable little aquamarine one that goes so well with the red skirt and blue tee and jacket.


Last worn: denim jacket, red maxi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC. It's the first time I've worn the Kisschasy band tee on the blog.

Tee: The Getaway Plan yellow paint splatter band tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Finally a band tee from a different band, haha! There's something so fun about the Kisschasy tees, and I went to a lot of their shows so I have quite a collection of them!

This yellow band tee is another one from the "band tee storage box" that I've added to my regular wardrobe now after this challenge. I love this tee so much. I actually got to meet Matt from The Getaway Plan while wearing it and I shared a bit of that embarrassingly flustered encounter on Instagram. One of my fave pics still though!

Yellow and purple isn't a colour combo I'd normally go for but it works so well with this print that I had to match the colour in the tee with the purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag. With the bold yellow tee and purple bag I kept the rest of my outfit simple and neutral with my grey maxi cardigan, skinny jeans and silver ballet flats.

Comfy, cosy and colourful outfit for a public holiday day off - we headed to Ikea for brunch and got a few more things for the house.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, yellow band tee, grey skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Graphic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

#sparklepunchMusicMonth challenge was a great reason to get my band tees out again, and it shows you how easy it is to wear a classic band tee - no matter the colours! Keeping things simple and wearing a graphic tee with jeans is an easy outfit option, and perfect for mum life. You can go simple and monochrome like the first outfit or be more colourful and bring out the colours in the print with your accessories like I have in the final outfit. You can also mix thing sup a little and pair a band tee with a maxi skirt like the second outfit.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with Louis Vuitton neverfull for themepark mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.


Last worn: denim jacket, Mickey mouse tee, chambray maxi skirt, glitter sneakers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.

Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.
