Navy and Green Kimono Outfits With Grey Tees And Micro Bedford Bag

Another Wednesday post! I'm still not back to my regular 3 times a week posting I was pre-pandemic as I just don't get out of loungewear that many times a week yet! But I wanted to share two outfit posts this week, and on Friday I'll have my special annual gift guide post.

Two outfits with similar colour schemes and outfit formulas, but both look very different despite featuring navy kimonos, grey tees, green and the same little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted Equip gold and marble station necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Simple jeans and tee outfit for a busy day with the school run, working from home, and an appointment for my son in the afternoon. The grey tee and the green jeans are a combination I've worn a few times in the past, but I couldn't resist changing it up a little bit this time with the navy tie dye kimono on top. I thought it went nicely with the green jeans and it was a fun bit of match-matchy with the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag, and the navy Havaianas.

I really liked this outfit - nice and comfortable and practical for working from home and rushing around between school pickup and the afternoon appointment. I was glad I'd picked jeans to wear as the wind really picked up in the afternoon and it was actually a bit chilly on our way home from the appointment!

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I really liked the colours in this outfit! Just like the first outfit, it was a grey tee with green and a navy kimono, and that little Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This time around though it was olive shorts instead of jeans, as the weather had warmed up a lot. The navy floral print kimono adds even more colour too, as does the green beaded necklace.

I thought that this grey tunic would go nicely with the pull on olive shorts - while they are both very relaxed fits I like the casualness of the outfit with the two loose pieces together, and I felt the long line of the kimono pulled it together a bit more to stop it looking too messy. Again I really liked this outfit! After the school drop off in the morning we went for a walk along our fave trail. Walking around the water was not the smartest idea after the storms that weekend though, especially when I forgot to put on mozzie repellent! I was bitten so much, ended up walking around a lot quicker than normal trying to stop my legs getting bitten 😂

Our grocery order was due to arrive the next day but I'd run out of some things for lunchboxes and it wouldn't arrive early enough in the morning, so had to go for a quick grocery shop after. Was nice to cool off my multiple bug bites in the air conditioning! And I took the opportunity to have a little browse of the shopping centre for some more Christmas gifts as well. I've purchased most of my Christmas gifts (I want to be really organised this year with all the online orders slowing down the postal service a little) but there's always a few extra things to buy!


How You Can Wear It:

Blue and green is a colour combo that should definitely be seen! It's easy to pair any shade of green with navy, as you can see here with the forest green and the olive working well against the navy kimonos.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Grey Tees, Blue Maxis And Blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren Messenger Bag

For today's weekday wear linkup, I'm sharing two outfits with my go-to pink and blue colour combination, taking blue maxis and adding grey tees and a blush pink bag. The first outfit is with a maxi dress and the second a maxi skirt.

What I wore:

spring layered maxi dress outfit grey tee knotted over navy dress pastel pink bag | awayfromblue

navy printed maxi dress with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue



Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: Jeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very busy Friday! I wanted something simple and comfortable to wear that morning so decided to layer up this blue maxi dress with a grey tee to dress it down a little for what I anticipated to be a quiet day with the school run. Until, running late for school, I went to zip up my son's lunch bag and realised it had broken and wouldn't zip up and so wouldn't keep his food cool. Luckily managed to find a replacement one for him to use for the day, but it then meant spending far too long walking around the local Westfield shopping centre hunting for a replacement lunchbox. Of course at halfway through the last term for the year there was not a lot of choice! Luckily I managed to find one in the end, that my son approved of when I picked him up from school. Phew!

I did like this outfit - the knotted tee looked good with the navy printed maxi dress and because the tee has a pink panel on the back I decided to wear my Rebecca Minkoff peony pink Darren bag with it, even though they are different shades of pink I think they compliment nicely. Stuck with simple silver accessories to match the hardware on the bag with the silver necklace and ballet flats.





What I wore:

spring SAHM outfit with dark grey tee and pink floral print maxi skirt pastel rebecca minkoff bag | away from blue

floral print maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony  | away from the blue


Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit, but this time it's a grey tee with a printed blue maxi skirt. I surprisingly hadn't worn this tee and skirt together before, seems like such an obvious pairing with the neutral grey tee and the colourful floral print skirt. Again with the Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag as it matches the pink florals so nicely! And I picked another necklace with silver hardware to match the bag too. I was wearing simple but comfortable sandals (not that you can see them with the skirt caught in the breeze...).

This was another day of traipsing around the shops after school drop off - although a planned one, as it happened before the day above! Haven't been to the shops in weeks and suddenly went twice in one week! I again masked up to visit a few different stores in an effort to track down a bike for my son's Christmas. Thankfully despite the bike shortages we were able to find one, and I ticked off a few more purchases off my list. Really want to be organised in advance for Christmas this year as postage can be slow as we get closer to December!



How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is such a nice basic neutral, perfect for pairing with a printed piece in your outfit. Just like blue and grey, blue and pink go together beautifully too so a pink bag is a great way to accessorise a blue and grey outfit.

30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee

Time for another 30 ways to wear post! Every month I pick something from my wardrobe I've worn 30 times or more and create a new post in this monthly series showing you some of the ways I've worn it. I hope to inspire you to think of more ways to rewear the pieces you own in your wardrobe, as I was inspired when I first heard of the 30 wears challenge in The True Cost documentary.

This month, it's this dark grey v-neck tee in charcoal. It was one of the pieces I first thought of back when I started this series, as I was sure I would have worn it 30 times, but I've only just managed to hit that figure this year, and that's with some pretty frequent rewearing recently. Still, if I had to pick, I'd say this is my favourite grey tee.


30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee



30 ways to wear a dark grey tee #30wears away from the blue blog wardrobe remix



Cost Per Wear


I bought this tee back in July 2013! Thanks to my order email from The Iconic I know it was a $30 tee reduced to $12 in the sale and then I had an extra discount voucher for my order so it worked out to just $9.48. At 30 wears to date that's 32 cents a wear. Pretty good cost per wear I think! Obviously, having this tee pre-kids and during my pregnancies and now after having my kids, it doesn't fit quite the same as it used to 7 years ago! However it is still super soft, stretchy and although it's maybe not quite as slouchy a fit as it was before I love how comfortable it is. I plan to wear this until it falls apart.

The other, lighter, grey tee I bought in the same order I've already done a 30 wears post on too. It was a good sale shop back then as I still have 3 of the 4 things I ordered and I've now hit 30 wears on 2 of them!

I think the reason it's taken me 7 years to reach 30 wears with this tee was a combination of not wanting baby spit up on my fave tee when the kids were younger, along with the habit I'm trying to stop of "saving" pieces in my wardrobe and feeling they are too good to wear on ordinary days. I've been really enjoying wearing this tee so much recently, in an effort to finally hit 30 wears with it and acknowledge its awesomeness in a post! So let's see the ways I've worn it!



Dark Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfits


5 monochrome outfit ideas with a dark grey tee | away from the blue blog

I find true monochrome outfits really tricky to do, as I can never resist adding a little pop of colour with an accessory! I do like wearing this grey tee with other shades of grey and black for a monochrome look - before I start adding colourful pieces on top!


Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits


3 ways to wear Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits | away from blue

This darker grey tee layers so well in winter - it's a neutral shade that goes with any layers I might add on top without clashing, and darker colours seem so perfectly suited for cold days! As you can see in these pics it works with all the extra winter layers with jackets, scarves an cardigans well.


Dark Grey Tee In Outfits With Colourful Statement Pieces


6 ways to wear a dark grey tee with colourful pieces in your outfit | away from blue

Of course it's not just winter layers that this dark tee works with! If you have a dark tee it's a nice outfit base to pair with some other bright statement pieces, even in warmer weather. Like over a floral dress, with neon pink accessories, a yellow kimono, cobalt leather jacket or leopard print pants! This neutral tee is a nice grounding piece to add when you're wearing one or more bright statement pieces in your outfit.


Grey Tee With Red Pieces In An Outfit


5 red and grey v neck tee outfit ideas 30 wears | away from the blue

There are a few colour pairings I keep coming back to with this grey tee so I wanted to call them out specifically. Grey and red is a fun combination, and as you can see you can add little touches of red with accessories or go all out with a red cardigan or maxi skirt. Even burgundy and deep red shades, like those skinny jeans, work well with a dark grey tee.


Grey Tee Outfits With Green


3 ways to wear green pieces with a dark grey tee | awayfromblue

Green is a colour I've been trying to wear more lately and no matter the shade - olive or bright emerald green - I find it a little tricky to wear. Like any colour you're unsure how to wear, you can pair it with a plain grey tee! It just works!



Grey Tee and Skirt Outfits


4 outfit ideas with a dark grey tee and skirts | away from blue blog

This combination is another one I keep coming back to with this grey tee - pairing it with a printed skirt! Maxi skirts are obviously my favourite here, with 3 out of 4 outfits featuring it, but it works well with pencil skirts too and shorter length skirts like you've seen above.


Grey Tee and Baby Bump Outfits


4 grey tee and baby bump outfits | away from the blue

I've been lucky enough to have this tee for both my pregnancies with my boys and I took full advantage of the comfortable stretchy material, wearing it right into the third trimester! It was a simple outfit for work with a pencil skirt, or as you saw above too without the bump, a nice easy casual outfit on a hot day with a maxi skirt. It's one of those non-maternity pieces that work so well in a pregnancy wardrobe!

The Magnificent 8: Pearls!

Time for another Magnificent 8 post! Every quarter we pick a theme and all style it in our own unique ways, showing you different ideas to try across multiple age groups. Because you can be stylish at any age! 

Our theme today is pearls. I have a few pearl accessories I like wearing a lot when the weather warms up, and it's been a very hot spring so far! Sharing two different outfits I've worn recently, a casual outfit with real freshwater pearls and a more dressed up one with faux pearls.

What I wore:

Jeanswest Eliza summer poncho in yellow floral with grey tee olive embroidered shorts converse | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond with yellow kimono | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram | casual pearl necklace outfit grey tee olive shorts yellow kimono


JacketJeanswest Eliza summer poncho in yellow floral
NecklaceRoie Designs long freshwater pearl necklace with tassel
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This freshwater pearl necklace is a firm favourite and is one I constantly wear on repeat! It's been worn over 34 times since I bought it. I love the long length and the mix of textures with the leather tassel and the coin pendant. It just goes with everything and is a great touch with a casual outfit. Freshwater pearls are perfect for a casual outfit, you don't have to dress up in pearls!

The olive embroidered shorts are so nice to wear in summer, being a soft pull-on style. I like wearing them with yellow and this yellow printed kimono is such a summery combination. As the kimono is so bold I went with a classic neutral grey tee as a base, and a tan bag. Even if this little Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag does struggle to fit both my things and my son's water bottle we brought along for our little walk on our fave trail after the school pick up!






What I wore:

Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress with pearl necklace bracelet and quilted rebecca minkoff edie | awayfromblue

faux pearl accessories with Rebecca Minkoff small Edie quilted crossbody bag | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram | blue printed maxi dress with magenta pink crossbody edie bag and pearl necklace bracelet stack spring playdate outfit

Earrings: Juicy Couture bow stud earrings
NecklaceRoie Designs faux pearl and black satin ribbon necklace
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bracelets: the usual plus faux pearl bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This is a slightly more dressed up outfit - although still just as comfortable for a hot and humid day! This time around I accessorised with some faux pearls. This necklace is fun and it ties with a long black ribbon in the back, so very comfortable to wear in spring and summer! I added the faux pearl bracelet stack too, again to try make my casual jersey maxi dress seem a little more pulled together. We had a playdate with one of my son's friends from school, which was really good. I'd expected to have more playdates this year but the virus has made it tricky!

With the faux pearls and blue printed maxi dress I wanted to add a little extra colour so I went with this Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag in magenta. It really pops with navy and I like how the quilted style makes the outfit a little dressier too.

Had thought about wearing sandals with this but as all mine have buckles and I wasn't sure on the "shoes in the house" policy at my son's friend's place I decided on these silver slip on ballet flats instead so I could easily remove them if needed. I've worn them a lot with this dress in the past, it's a nice combination, especially with the silver hardware on the bag.



How You Can Wear It:

Pearls are a really versatile accessory! Real or faux they are so easy to add to an outfit, no matter your style. You can try a necklace, bracelets, or even earrings and you can get pearl embellished clothing too!

Layering Maxi Dresses For Spring | Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear link up, I was making the most of spring weather here in Brisbane and layering up my maxi dresses. One on a slightly cooler spring day, and another for a much warmer day that was almost summer-like!

What I wore:

Jeanswest Chantelle blue printed maxi dress with denim jacket and bright accessories peach and magenta for spring | awayfromblue

navy printed maxi dress with Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram | layering blue printed maxi dress with denim jacket and bright accessories for spring

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: thrifted magenta pink statement beaded necklace
Dress:  Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Dressed up a little more than I usually would for a work from home day! This blue printed jersey maxi dress is so incredibly comfortable and was perfect for the school run, sitting at my desk all day, a zoom fashion launch, and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. A very busy day! I wanted something bright to wear for the zoom TVSN spring/summer fashion catalogue launch. I've been invited to the events before but it's in another state so I couldn't join. With the restrictions and it being online I was able to join this time! Conveniently over lunchtime, I was able to attend in the middle of the work day and ooh and aah over all the pretty fashion pieces (some very out of my budget though!) before diving back into work.

I like pink with this blue maxi dress but I've never worn this particular magenta necklace with it before, and thought this would be a fun statement piece that was suitably bright for the summery designs we were shown. I really liked the combination, and couldn't resist adding even more colour with the little peach Rebecca Minkoff small love bag. I have paired this bag with pink sandals before and I enjoyed the colours together then too. Plus this bag was overdue a wear!

As it was a little cool for a sleeveless maxi dress, especially for the morning school run and afternoon appointment, I layered the denim jacket on top.





What I wore:


Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown | awayfromtheblue

away from blue Instagram | spring maxi dress layered grey v-neck tee layered over Kmart floral maxi dress with carob brown mbmj fran bag

Necklace: thrifted Equip gold and marble station necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus pearl and rose gold bracelet stack
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This was a very fun day! Took the boys for a very overdue haircut and a tiny trim for myself - I am growing my hair out to donate it again but I need to get better at regularly getting it trimmed so it grows in healthier! After the haircut we wandered through the shopping centre to check out the opshop which was preloved book heaven - tables and tables of books. I tried to quickly browse through and pick up a few from authors I've enjoyed reading already, and the kids got a big book haul too!

Had a wonderful picnic lunch as well, enjoying the summery feel of the day!

The only thing I didn't like about the summer-like spring day was that in an effort to try mix up this dress a little I wore the grey tee over it, and it turned into a much too hot and humid day to have added an extra layer! I did like the outfit, just not so much walking around outside in the heat.

Just like the Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag above, this Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag is definitely overdue a wear! I used to have a little collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs bags but this is the only one I have left now - and every time I use it I love it, it was nice to get it out again and I loved how it fit everything including all of our water bottles and some snacks inside. Have been using it more since, it was a good decision to get it out my handbag cupboard for this day!



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress is easy to layer up in spring! Try a denim jacket over the top for a cooler day or a simple tee on a warmer day.

Printed Shorts and Cardigans For Spring With Blue Bags

I was so excited when it started warming up for spring as I'd wanted to try a few shorts and cardigan outfits! September brought some very warm weather with it though, so I haven't been able to wear this combination as much as I'd like. I did enjoy wearing it when I could though, just a handful of times. A cardigan is a nice way to add more colour to a grey tee and printed shorts outfit.

What I wore:

mustard cardigan with grey tee blue printed culottes shorts teal balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India with navy printed shorts | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | mustard cardigan grey tee printed culotte shorts spring outfit with balenciaga first bag





Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

These shorts were a Kmart clearance find in January 2019 but this is only their 6th wear. I've done a 30 wears post on another pair of blue printed shorts before, so I have lots of ideas for how to wear these and I'm sure they will get more wear this spring and summer. I really like wearing yellow with them, even though this mustard cardigan doesn't match the lemon print on the shorts I liked the two different yellows together.

The cardigan added a fun pop with the grey tee too, and while the blue wooden beaded necklace matched some of the colours in the print, the teal Balenciaga first bag was another pop of colour that I really like wearing with yellows!

After the school run the little one and I went to the local park for a little scoot around, and ran a few errands before school pickup and then sports in the evening.





What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted blue statement beaded necklace (new purchase)
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This was a very strange day, weather-wise! It was so windy in the morning we decided to take the kids to the park to fly their kite. However when the wind wasn't blowing it was really warm and sunny. I debated on shorts or jeans and in the end decided a cardigan and printed shorts combo would be perfect instead. I really enjoyed wearing this, this cardigan was nice to block some of the wind but not so thick that I felt overheated in the sun.

I like blue and purple together, so with the monochromatic grey tee and black pull on printed shorts I thought I'd add some navy blue accessories. The recently thrifted beaded necklace pairs really nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag, and I like the way the navy works with the purple cardigan.

Nice comfortable outfit for a quiet Saturday.



How You Can Wear It:

Early spring days where it's warm enough for bare legs or bare arms but not both together is perfect weather for a cute pair of printed shorts and a light cardigan. Adding a cardigan is a good way to bring more colour to your outfit too.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Colourful Cardigans, Scarves and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Day Bag

Today's Weekday Wear Linkup has some outfits I layered up for the end of winter. Still trying to stay a little colourful with my cardigans and scarves.

What I wore:

mustard cardigan with navy and grey skinny jeans and converse outfit heart print scarf balenciaga bag | away from blue

mustard cardigan with Balenciaga giant hardware Day hobo bag in 2009 tempete | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | mustard cardigan with navy tee heart print scarf grey skinny jeans and Balenciaga tempete day hobo bag

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
Tee: Jeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I love blue and yellow together, this mustard cardigan gets worn with blue a lot but it's the first time I've worn it with this navy tee. I added a little extra blue with the Stella McCartney heart print scarf that was a firm favourite this winter, just like last winter.

The neutral grey skinny jeans were an easy choice with the colourful pieces and the tempete Balenciaga day bag was a great mix of blue and grey to tie it all together. Didn't need such a big bag as it was a quiet day: the school run, a little opshopping and then sports in the evening after school pickup, but it just went with my outfit so well.





What I wore:

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl colourful print scarf in green
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

More muted colours, but still a little bit of mustard and navy! I felt this outfit was very similar to one I've worn before, wearing this dark grey tee with this green printed scarf, green skinny jeans, a cardigan and a blue bag. Slightly different colours this time around with the olive jeans and navy cardigan though.

While I did like the colours in this outfit, it was much too warm! The day was warmer than expected and while I did need the scarf and cardigan on our way home from our evening appointment it was a bit too warm for most of the day. Ended up taking the scarf off while working from home after the school run.

Had to wear these daggy shoes instead of my Converse, I've been trying out a few local trails with the kids and found a nice one but it was a bit uneven which hurt my knee, so I needed these comfortable shoes to support my knee as it was hurting a little from the trail a few days before.



How You Can Wear It:

Winter layers can be colourful! Stick with a neutral like navy and then add other brighter colours like yellow or green with a cardigan or scarf.
