Jeanswest Duster Kimonos With Denim Shorts, Space Dye Tees and Louis Vuitton Neverfull

If you've followed my blog for a while you'd know that I love Jeanswest. It's easily my favourite clothing store, and I always ask for gift cards from there at Christmas. So when they come out with a kimono, a much loved staple of my wardrobe, I'm very likely to get it.

They've really stepped up their game recently with a whole heap of kimonos and so I spent the last of my Christmas gift cards getting these two amazing bright kimonos from Jeanswest, perfect for summer! They were both 40% off in the sales too 😉

What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This kimono was a must have, as soon as I saw it I knew I'd use up the last of my Christmas gift cards to get it. So perfect! It's called a poncho on the Jeanswest site but I'm just going to call it a kimono. It's so light and floaty, perfect for our hot summer days in Brisbane and it's the most cheerful bright shade of yellow!

Wore it out for the first time for a picnic by the beach with some family over visiting from WA. The sunny morning turned into a showery day when we got there so we huddled together eating hot chips to stay warm until the sun and the humidity returned. I'd picked shorts to wear as I didn't want to overheat in jeans - regretted that choice with the wind and rain, but was happy for the rest of the day when the sun came out and jeans would have been too warm.

With the plain shorts and space dye tee the yellow kimono was a nice bright pop of colour, and my Louis Vuitton neverfull is a frequently worn bag to the beach, or to a picnic, or a picnic by the beach in this case!


Last worn: space dye tee, navy tassel necklace, black distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull. First time I've worn the kimono as it was a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

The last photo in front of the Jacaranda trees for the season! I had been trying to get as many pics with them as I could and when I took this photo mid-November there were already more green leaves on the trees than purple flowers. It has been fun trying to stop at the best ones we passed to get pics - although there were many more I wish I could have taken pics with. Next year!

I went back to this street with my tripod this time as I knew to get a shot of the big purple trees behind me I'd need the camera to stand on the road. The boys patiently waited for me on the pavement as I snapped away, before we headed to a coffee date with a friend and then a play in the playground. Being a hot day I'd wanted to have a bit of a splash in the bay to cool down, but a warning about the illness causing algae in the water kept us off the beach sadly!

It was too hot for anything other than shorts and a tee, but I thought that the rose gold sandals and green duster kimono dressed up the outfit nicely for meeting my friend. This kimono was another must have as soon as I saw it, and I picked it up for 40% off in the Jeanswest sale too, earlier this year. I can never resist a good sale!

3 Colours To Wear With A Navy Kimono

I'm so close to 30 wears with this navy printed kimono so I've been wearing it a lot lately so I can reach that goal and put together a 30 ways to wear post with it.

Since I haven't hit that number quite yet, I'm just showing you 3 different ways I've worn this navy kimono recently, and some ideas of different colours to wear with a blue kimono.

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromblue

JacketNew Look Petite print kimono
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a much needed family day! While the smoke haze from the bushfires had died down a little near is the air quality was still pretty low and we hadn't spent a lot of time outside. Me being sick hadn't helped!

We decided to spend the day on the coast where the air was much clearer, having a picnic in the park before dinner at my parents. It was a really fun day and a much needed chance to relax. Even if we did have to pull out the first aid kits (yes plural) out the car just after we got to the park, the rest of the day went much better.

This v-neck tee is labelled as coral but always looks so red in pics! I like red and blue together and think this coral tee really pops with the navy print. I think navy and black go together well too and these shorts were so comfortable for a morning playing in the park. The Louis Vuitton neverfull is a great bag for carrying all the little extras at a picnic that don't fit in the main bag too.

The tassel necklace adds a touch of a third colour with the turquoise beads as well.


Last worn: navy kimono, tassel necklace, coral tee, distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton azur neverfull.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another shorts, tee and kimono outfit, this one even brighter than the one above! Orange and blue are a bold colour combo and I love the two together. With my classic blue Bermuda denim shorts and  neutral tan MAB camera bag it was a simple and colourful outfit for another play date in the park with some school mums, a few weeks ago before the smoke haze got too bad.

Probably could have tucked this orange tee in a little to make the outfit look more streamlined like I did in the first outfit, but with the longer length of the kimono and longer shorts I thought I'd try it untucked.

DressAsos grey skater dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Something very different, wearing a dress and kimono together this time. I've worn this grey skater dress with kimonos in the past and really liked the combo so thought I'd try this navy kimono with it.. I like blue and grey together, and I kept it simple with neutral studded sandals and a navy bag to match the print on the kimono.

Couldn't resist adding a little more colour though with this fun thrifted magenta statement necklace - it really stands out against the grey dress and I like pink and blue together too.

It was a hot day, and I felt a little warm in this! The dress is quite a thick cotton. Wanted to wear a dress to try beat the heat and look a little more pulled together for an appointment with my son. A sleeveless one might have worked better though.

Navy Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A navy kimono is a wardrobe staple for me and it works with so many other colours! Red, orange, pink, turquoise or even a neutral like grey are great things to wear with it. You can go big and bold with a bright tee or more subtle with a colourful accessory like a necklace.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Wrap Tops and Pencil Skirts With Balenciaga Day Bags

For today's weekday wear I'm wearing some wrap tops that haven't been worn in a while with pencil skirts and statement necklaces for an easy office outfit.

What I wore:

TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this navy wrap top with a grey pencil skirt, I really like navy and grey together! To change it up a little I added some different accessories. This green and red beaded statement necklace is a firm fave and while I do wear it at other times through the year it seems so perfectly festive for December, being so close to Christmas! I wasn't sure if the leopard print flats would be too much with this given the necklace was already enough of a statement, but I ended up really liking it when I tried it.

The tempete Balenciaga day bag is the perfect mix of blue and grey so seemed like the obvious choice to wear with this 💙

BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Followed the same blue and grey colour scheme as the first outfit for this one, just with a single brighter colour in my accessories. I thought the basic grey wrap top was a nice neutral to pair with the jacquard pencil skirt and I really like the way the magenta pops against it!

This recently thrifted necklace was one I couldn't pass by in the opshop when I was in looking for Christmas books for our advent calendar. I knew it would be the perfect match with this magenta Balenciaga day bag and I love the way they look together!

Wrap Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple wrap top is a nice twist on a basic and works well in the office when you need to be a little more dressed up. They are great with pencil skirts! I bought both of these wrap tops for easy breastfeeding as they have a snap to hold them in place. It makes them simple to wear at work as they don't gape open. You could always layer a tank underneath if your top doesn't have a modesty snap.

Floral Duster Kimonos and Grey Tees

If you've read my blog for a while you'll know I love kimonos! I like using accessories in my outfit for a little extra touch of colour. Scarves are great in winter, as are necklaces and bags, but in spring and summer I frequently reach for my kimonos. There's something so comfortable about long duster length ones like these floral ones - taking a simple shorts and tee or jeans and tee outfit and making it feel more dressed up!

What I wore:

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag (get 20% off with code "REAL")

Why I wore it:

The monochromatic grey tee and black skinny jeans outfit was a bit plain, even with the wooden bead necklace. This floral duster kimono added the perfect touch of colour and print and is so comfortable! Of course I couldn't resist going a little matchy-matchy and pairing the green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip bag with this too, even if it does blend into the kimono a bit! They are both such nice shades of green.

Wore this for a morning of furniture shopping which turned into lunch at Ikea, taking advantage of the "kids eat free" deal they had on. Just a nice simple outfit for the challenge that is spending half the day furniture shopping with two little boys!


Last worn: green floral kimono, blue beaded necklace, grey v-neck tee, black skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip bag.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A much less stressful day! We took advantage of the summer-like weather and headed to the local park with my family for a picnic. The heat made me reach for a simple shorts and tee outfit, but I did want to dress it up a little for the picnic so I added this awesome floral duster. It was a Christmas gift from my mum last year and it's a firm favourite!

I thought the purple floral went nicely with the pastel pink shorts too, I like pink and purple together and I've worn a similar outfit before. The tee has a pink panel on the back too, so the sheer kimono showed a little of that pink as well.

Had to wear my big floppy sunhat for sun protection, even though we spent most of the day in the shade at the picnic table. I appreciated the hat while running around with the boys in the playground afterwards!

We had a big bag for the picnic blanket and food but I brought my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag along as well so I had extra space to carry everything - sunscreen and water bottles. This is a great go-anywhere tote, and my go-to for picnics!


Last worn: sunhat, statement necklace, floral kimono, grey colour block tee, pink shorts, rose gold sandals, Louis Vuitton neverfull.

Other ways to wear: sunhat and maxi dress, floral kimono and denim shorts, grey colour block tee and navy kimono, pink shorts and printed tank, rose gold sandals and maxi skirt, Louis Vuitton neverfull worn 30 ways.

Duster Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a mum staple, especially when paired with shorts or jeans. To change up your outfit a little even on a hot day you can add some extra interest through a colourful printed duster kimono. Such a comfortable choice in the heat too!

V-Neck Tees Knotted Over Tiered Sundresses With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

I'm a little sad that Kmart hasn't brought these strappy tiered sundresses back again this year, I was so hoping they would! They are such a staple in my wardrobe and they aren't just worn in the summer months. Today I'm sharing two spring outfits I made with them by knotting some tees over the top. I did this in winter too with knits.

What I wore:

orange tee knotted over black printed tiered sundress with colourful accessories | awayfromblue

little black dress with Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

TeeJeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus mixed metal bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

I wore this a little bit too late for Halloween! But I did like the black and orange combo. This v-neck tee is a recent purchase from the Jeanswest sale. I picked it up as I loved the orange, and went to try it on. Then it looked so mustard in the change room. I asked the SA as I was buying it, it's definitely not mustard right?! ha! I do love mustard but I already have a mustard tee.

Like you do with a new purchase, I wanted to wear this shortly after I bought it and realised it would be a great pop of colour with this little black tiered sundress. With the nude studded gladiator sandals and the grey Rebecca Minkoff love bag, I wanted to add a little more colour to the outfit and this Ruby Olive necklace was perfect! It was a Christmas gift from my bestie last year.

I liked the slight extra warmth this tee gave layered over the sundress for church too - always so cold in church with the aircon!


Last worn: black Aztec print dress, statement necklace, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

30 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Love Cross Body Bag

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Another outfit I wore to church, another tee knotted over a sundress! Unlike the first outfit, I let the dress be the colour with the blue and pink print and went with a neutral grey tee to match the Rebecca Minkoff Love bag. Picked the black ankle boots as I wore this a few weeks before the first outfit, where I wanted a little extra warmth for the cooler spring morning. It turned into a beautifully warm day by the afternoon though.

This grey tee is such a wardrobe staple - I have a 30 ways to wear post coming up with it soon because I've finally achieved over 30 wears with it. It was one of the pieces I searched through my blog archives for first when I heard about the 30 wears challenge, so sure that I'd have already hit 30 wears with it! I have finally got over 30 wears with it now, and I've been putting a 30 wears post together every month for almost 2 years, haha!

I knotted this tee to the side but I preferred the way I knotted the tee in the first outfit, making the knot more of a statement.

Last worn: grey v-neck tee, blush and blue sundress, beaded necklace, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff love bag (above).

How You Can Wear It

A v-neck tee is a wardrobe staple and pairs so nicely with denim - jeans or shorts! For something a little different and for a cooler spring or autumn day, try layering a tee over one of your fave summer dresses to create a whole new look!





What I Bought In November:


I'd usually do an extra post for this with a video but I've been a bit unwell this month and lost my voice for over a week so I'm just adding a little note onto this post. I also only bought three things:


I used up the last of my Christmas gift cards in the Jeanswest 40% off sale to pickup some colourful pieces for summer, and as I was hunting the opshops for books for our Christmas book advent calendar I couldn't resist this cute necklace for just $3!

Here's how I've worn it all:

Weekday Wear Linkup! Belted Fit and Flare Dresses With Tees Underneath and Balenciaga Day Bags

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm layering some 3/4 sleeve tees under classic fit and flare dresses. And adding all the accessories! The last of our stuff is out of storage and my uncle helped me finish the rest of my wardrobe room so I finally have all of my clothes and accessories in one wardrobe room in our new house, making me very happy indeed!

What I wore:

sleeveless fit and flare dress lbd with pink accessories and tee layered underneath | awayfromblue

BeltAsos Metal Keeper super skinny belt in pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus pearl and rose gold bracelet stack
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've layered a neutral tee under this black fit and flare dress. It makes it the perfect base for some bright accessories, and this magenta Balenciaga day bag matches so nicely with this magenta skinny belt. Which I haven't worn for a few years as it's just recently been uncovered from storage after our move (I went into a little bit more detail about the return of the belts here). So happy to see it again, it's a great colour match to this Balenciaga day bag.

The pink crystals in the necklace don't match the magenta pink exactly, but I still liked the extra touch of colour it added to the outfit. Went a little further and added the printed shoes too, these leopard print ballet flats are so fun to wear with a monochromatic outfit.

They grey tee wasn't really needed underneath in the heat of the day but it was appreciated in the cold aircon at work, even if I did overheat a little when my friend and I went out for a walk at lunch time, where I posed in front of yet another jacaranda tree!

BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Even more colourful this time, on my next day in the office I wore another fit and flare dress, this one in a classic black and white stripe. I added a teal tee underneath and then some red accessories - mostly because I felt these red suede ballet flats were overdue a wear and you know I can't resist a little matchy-matchy!

With the red belt, shoes and Hermes Kelly bracelet I felt a red necklace might have been a little too much so I picked this anchormen crystal statement necklace instead. The blue Balenciaga day bag isn't a great match to the teal tee, but I thought it complimented it nicely and this bag looks great with red!


Last worn: striped fit and flare dress, teal tee, statement necklace, Hermes bracelet, red belt, red suede flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Fit And Flare Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A fit and flare dress is such a staple, and with a sleeveless one like these two you can easily layer a tee underneath if the office aircon is a little chilly, bypassing the need for a blazer or cardigan on top. You can add some colour with bright accessories like statement necklaces or belts. A fit and flare dress looks great belted!
