30 Ways To Wear: Green Skinny Jeans

December seems like the perfect time for my thrifted green skinny jeans to star in a 30 ways to wear post! They could be considered a very festive shade of green. I haven't worn them with red but I have worn them with a lot of other colours so I'm putting this post together to give you some outfit ideas and inspiration if you have a similar pair of jeans - or pants!



30 Ways To Wear: Green Skinny Jeans





I thrifted these jeans a little over 2 years ago, back in August 2018. They were a $5 bargain opshop find, especially considering that they were new with tags and petite sizing. Being short I usually have to get jeans hemmed unless I buy cropped or petite styles - so happy these are perfect length on me! Also the only pair of Asos petite jeans I've tried before. I have noticed them starting to get quite baggy when I wear them which I'm not too impressed with, but having worn them 30 times and only spent $5 on them I really can't complain!


Cost Per Wear

30 wears at $5 works out at 17 cents a wear which is really impressive! And despite them getting a little baggy I'm still going to keep wearing these - I don't think I'd have the luck of finding jeans in my size and length, also new with tags and just $5 in an opshop again! I'm also surprised that these hit 30 wears so quickly - I was wearing them frequently this spring to hit that goal with them admittedly, but I've also found them really easy to rewear so often. I used to be a bit scared of green but I've been embracing it more and all the different ways I've worn these jeans is a good example of that!



Green Jeans Worn With Black

One of the simplest ways to wear green jeans - with black! The perfect neutral that goes with everything, you don't have to worry about colours clashing with this combo. And there are so many good options - black tees, jackets, cardigans, kimonos, tanks... Sticking with neutral pieces for the rest of your outfit lets the green jeans really shine. You can always add in a bit more colour with accessories too thought like I have with the green scarf and bag there.



Spring Outfit Ideas For Green Jeans

I like wearing my green jeans in spring - they work well with kimonos which are a staple for me in warmer weather. Especially navy kimonos. Bright spring-like colourful printed tops go so well with the green jeans too! Such a fun pair to pull out for spring when we tend to embrace a bit more colour.


Winter Outfit Ideas With Green Jeans

Of course I don't just restrict myself to one season with these green jeans! While they worked well with light layers above for spring they also work really nicely as a pop of colour with all the extra layers you need in winter! Knits, cardigans or scarves and a bright pair of jeans is a cosy and comfortable outfit with a little extra colour among all the winter greys! I like to do the same thing with my red jeans too.


Green Jeans and Printed Tops

Another super simple combination I repeat often (although you can see I have a fondness for stripes!). Much like classic blue jeans, these green jeans go so nicely with a printed tee or tank - stripes, animal print, polka dots... jeans and a printed top is such a staple outfit formula and one you can continue to wear even with colourful jeans like these.



Green And Yellow Outfit Ideas With Green Jeans

This is a bolder and brighter combination - you can see how I kept it small in a few of these outfits. Adding a little yellow accessory or two, or layering up with neutral navy scarf and cardigan over a yellow tee to downplay the bright pairing a little. Or going all out, with the mustard cardigan and marigold tee for something really statement-making. Any shade of yellow works so well with this shade of green!



Green and Blue Outfit Ideas


5 ways to wear green and blue together with bright skinny jeans awayfromblue

I used to believe the "blue and green should never been seen" rule, but now I know it's a silly one! Blue and green should definitely be seen - and I've certainly worn a lot of different shades of blue with these jeans. Navy is a good fail-safe shade to try, but I can't resist a brighter pop with cobalt either! Wearing these jeans with blue is my favourite kind of outfit combination.

Two Ways To Wear: Green Jeans and Printed Tanks

These green jeans have been on repeat lately! A lucky opshop find two years ago, they were just $5. I've been so close to 30 wears with them, and thanks to my frequent rewearing this spring I have a 30 wears post coming up next week with them!

Wore them very simply for breezy spring days with printed tanks, sneakers and little Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC wih green jeans | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Top: Jeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

While I've shared outfits with these sneakers before on the blog, this was the first time I wore them out. I wanted to try a sporty kind of look but I don't really have a sporty wardrobe! Decided to go with the printed tank, the green jeans for a bit of colour and my little Rebecca Minkoff silver crossbody bag as it goes with everything!

It was threatening to rain and a pretty overcast morning, and a little windy, but we took a chance after school drop off and went to my fave trail to test out my new shoes properly. Luckily it didn't rain, and we had the whole place to ourselves! Usually even though we don't see other people due to the nature of the trail we see a car or two in the carpark, but not a single other person was there. It was wonderfully relaxing! My shoes held up pretty well too, I'm glad I replaced my old ones with these, although I hope my knee injury continues to heal so I can get back to regular shoes more often and don't need to wear these as much!

Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly, despite wearing stripes with these green skinny jeans a lot, I hadn't worn this striped tank with them before! I was sure I had, but looking back on the blog I can see I haven't! It's a really easy pairing, colourful jeans and a printed tank, just the same as the outfit above, but the different print changes it up a little. Was very comfortable for the school run and working from home on another breezy day.

Picked a neutral bag, this little tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag that hadn't been worn in a while. And to match the white tank I went with my white converse All Stars. Such a good combination, and one I've worn before, I like the matchy-matchy of the tank and shoes together.


How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank - in any print - is an easy choice with a colourful pair of jeans. It works well for spring and is easy to layer up a little with a cardigan or denim jacket in the cooler weather.

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!





What I wore:

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.

Colourful Spring Denim Outfits With White Kimonos and Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two colourful spring outfits with denim and kimonos - a frequently worn outfit combination of mine, especially in the warm weather as it's spring right now in Brisbane. However I didn't love both of these outfits equally.


What I wore:

white crochet kimono with printed cami and green skinny jeans navy rebecca minkoff regan bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with printed llama bag charm | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | green skinny jeanas with crochet kimono printed cami navy bag in mangrove boardwalk


JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono c/o
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Cami: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I really liked the idea of this outfit when I planned it out in my head. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag is something I've frequently worn with these green jeans in the past, I like the two together. I thought this printed cami would be a fun addition, a top I hadn't worn in a while. And the white crochet detail kimono was a nice neutral block colour topper over all the print and colour.

We took advantage of the public holiday and headed out on another walk with the kids, through the mangrove boardwalk along the bay. It was a little breezy at home so I anticipated it being quite cool and windy walking along the shoreline, like previous visits, so I wore the jeans instead of shorts. This was a mistake and I was SO hot, there was oddly no breeze coming off the water and I really wished I hadn't worn jeans! Not the best outfit for the day, despite having liked it so much in the morning.





What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, I did wonder a few times if I should have worn jeans instead of shorts! Spent the day with the kids and my mum at the beach, enjoying the sunshine although it was a bit windy and cool in the shade. Was so nice sitting on the sand in the sun though. Even Cooper went in for a paddle into the water and he's not normally a fan of getting wet!

As we didn't have a plan for the day in the morning I'd just picked something comfortable and colourful, with this marigold tee and digital print kimono. I was eager to wear this fun statement necklace again too, it's so light and easy to wear. I did like the black shorts to match the black print on the kimono too, even if I wished they were jeans a couple of times when I got cold! My Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag was great for carrying everything the boys and I needed, although it did end up a little full of sand at the end of the day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos and denim is a style staple in spring! You can add some colour to an outfit with a bright tee, colourful jeans or a brightly patterned kimono itself.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Floral Duster Kimonos With Colourful Skinny Jeans

Slightly cheating with today's Weekday Wear Linkup post, as I only wore one of these outfits during the week - the other I wore on a Sunday when I needed to get the boys out the house. Both incredibly similar though, and definitely the kind of thing I wear through the week for the school run. Duster kimonos just work so well with colourful jeans!

What I wore:

magenta skinny jeans navy tee Jeanswest melanie tropical floral print duster kimono nylon Julian backpack | awayfromblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | floral duster kimono magenta pink skinny jeans

Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

Hubby had started doing some yard work so the back yard was off limits for the kids and instead I took them out to run around along our favourite local trail. I decided at the last minute (after I'd taken these pics) to swap to my daggy walking shoes instead of my Converse and I'm glad I did as although we took their bike and scooter we left them at the side of the trail as we headed off the track a few times, and my knee needed the extra support hiking through the bush.

I really liked all the bright colours in this outfit! I wasn't sure about the navy tee with the navy floral print duster but I wanted to give it a try - I think this marle tee was the perfect one to wear with it as it wasn't too matchy-matchy, just different enough to work with the darker navy of the kimono. I matched the necklace and jeans to the print on the kimono too, picking out the tiny pink flowers in the print to wear this marble and gold necklace with my magenta Sass and Bide skinny jeans.

The Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack is my go-to bag for spending time out with the kids, fits all our water bottles and some snacks for the walk nicely!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit worn a few days later! Again I picked colourful jeans, Converse, a floral duster and a blue bag. The white tee again matched the print on my kimono, the white florals this time. The olive skinny jeans didn't match and I was worried that the two greens together would be too much, but I think the olive when nicely with the green of the duster and the blue leaf necklace and micro Bedford bag broke up the green nicely. I really liked this outfit!

After the school drop off we spent some time exploring the local trails again before the school pickup in the afternoon. I'm enjoying being able to get out with the kids so much in this nice weather, although I did wish a couple of times I'd worn shorts instead of jeans as it was a really warm spring day!



How You Can Wear It:

Floral dusters are a great spring layer to add to a casual jeans and tee outfit. You can use them to add extra colour or print, or match the colours in the print to the jeans and tee you wear.

Spring Outfits: Skinny Jeans, Converse and 3/4 Sleeve tops

Making the most of Brisbane's spring weather and starting to leave the layers behind! Before it heats up too much I reach frequently for my skinny jeans and Converse. It was nice to leave the scarves and extra layers behind on these warmer days, although I did need to add a denim jacket on a particularly windy spring day!

Both of these outfits feature a bright statement piece too.

What I wore:

pink leopard print jeans with  Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | awayfromblue

Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I haven't worn these fun pink leopard print jeans in over a year! I'm trying to stop passing over "special" things in my wardrobe and just wear them anyway, even if I do feel a little overdressed. We didn't have much on this day, the school run and a little walk around the neighbourhood with my youngest while my eldest was at school, but I felt these jeans were overdue a wear!

They do make me happy each time I wear them, and I have worn them with this wrap top before. They look so good with blue! As it was a little windier than expected and threatening rain I added the denim jacket on top - the rolled up sleeves were the perfect length with this 3/4 sleeve wrap top.

The accessories were matchy-matchy too with the blue bag matching the blue wrap top and denim jacket, and the pink and gold necklace matching the leopard print jeans and the gold hardware on the bag! Really liked this outfit, even if it felt a little overdressed in the playground!

Pants: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Again I wore my Converse and skinny jeans, this classic neutral grey pair this time. The Converse were probably a mistake though, after the school run the little one and I headed off to check out a new trail and while much shorter than I can manage, the ground was very uneven and rough which was a lot of pressure for my injured knee. Probably should have worn my ugly but supportive walking shoes instead! And should have worn some mozzie repellent too, we both got bitten like crazy!

Did like the way the Converse looked with this outfit though, and the grey skinny jeans with the black and white Chucks were great neutrals to let the marigold orange top pop. I like the way the skinny jeans balance out all the extra soft, cosy and slouchy volume of the dolman top.

To add just a little bit more colour I wore my green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag with this - it really pops against the orange top!



How You Can Wear It:
Skinny jeans and Converse is a mum staple! For something a little different you can try introducing a statement piece, like printed jeans or a bright citrus top.

Skinny Jeans, Printed Tanks And Cardigans

Making the most of the warmer winter weather just before spring arrived, I got some of my printed tanks out when all I needed to add was a light cardigan. Wore some colourful jeans with them too.

What I wore:

green skinny jeans, grey cardigan and yellow and navy aztec print tank with silver mini mac bag and accessories | awayfromblue

green skinny jeans with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | away from the blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wanted to wear light and colourful layers as it was such a warm day, so this 3/4 sleeve cardigan and a printed tank were perfect. Surprisingly it's the first time I've worn this mustard tank with the green skinny jeans! I really like wearing yellow with these green jeans so I was surprised to look back on the blog and see I hadn't paired the two together before.

I was a little disappointed to see I hadn't worn this tank in over a year and a half too - it really needs to be worn more often, it's a comfortable swing style and goes with so much - last time I wore it with purple.

With the printed tank and bright green jeans I kept the accessories simple with the matching silver mini MAC bag and silver circle necklace. Just wish it had been a little warmer at the end of the day! This outfit was perfect for the school run in the morning and afternoon but I had to layer up with a thicker coat for my son's sports in the evening when it got really cold.





What I wore:

purple cardigan striped tank skull print scarf and magenta skinny jeans outfit with mini mac bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag with magenta skinny jeans  | away from the blue



Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle

TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue (and Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag)

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun day! Spent the day with my sister taking her around our fave trail, enjoying the sunshine and the trees sheltering us from the worst of the wind. It was so nice to get out and treat ourselves to a takeaway lunch afterwards.

Added this light scarf to try combat the wind a little. This neon pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is frequently worn with stripes, I really like the combination and despite it being a different shade of pink with the magenta skinny jeans I think they worked well together. Surprisingly I haven't worn this scarf at all this winter! I have been living in loungewear since we go out so little though, hubby and I share the school runs so I don't go out every day.

Keeping up with all the colour I added my purple cardigan and blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. I did say I'd be wearing this cardigan and these jeans together again last time I wore them - the purple is such a nice shade with the magenta!

As you can see I swapped to my Rebecca Minkoff Julian bag to carry all the water bottles and some snacks on our little hike, but I wore the mini MAC bag for the school run and a quick Kmart shop in the afternoon.


Last worn: purple cardigan, pink and cream skull scarf, black and white stripe tank, magenta skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, Rebecca Minkoff Julian.



How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a great combination with a pair of colourful jeans. You can add a light cardigan or scarf if it's a little cooler. Either stick with neutrals to balance out a colourful tank and jeans combo like I have in the first outfit with the grey cardigan, or layer up even more colour like I have in the second outfit with the pink scarf and purple cardigan.
