Graphic Tees and Floral Kimonos With Denim For Spring

Continuing to enjoy the milder spring weather in Brisbane and wearing two pretty floral kimonos. Because florals are perfect for spring! Keeping things simple, as always, I wore the kimonos with denim, but decided to wear graphic tees instead of plain ones for something a little different.

What I wore:

Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

While it was a bit of a cooler spring day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this long sleeved kimono. It's such a fun bright magenta, with a hint of orange and blue in the floral print. It really pops with the Nobody Denim black skinny jeans, and the Edinburgh graphic tee I picked up on our Europe trip earlier this year matched the blue in the print nicely. I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour with my bag though! this peachy Rebecca Minkoff small love bag wouldn't normally be my first choice with magenta but with the orange in the flowers on the print I decided to give it a go and I really loved this combination!

Nice and comfortable outfit for church in the morning before a big family dinner at my parents in the afternoon.


Last worn: floral kimono, navy tassel earrings, Edinburgh graphic tee, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag.

Other ways to wear: floral kimono and shorts, Edinburgh graphic tee and leather jacket, Nobody Denim skinny jeans and leopard print, silver ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag and maxi dress.

Perfect for pregnancy: silver ballet flats in third trimester.

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This was a much warmer spring day, so I had to get my shorts out! I wore this back in September, the first month of spring, but I wasn't expecting to need my shorts so early in the season!

Unfortunately, I had a bunch of errands to run, but the boys were very patient and we headed to the park as soon as we were done. The heat ended up driving us home from the playground though, it was over 30 degrees (86 F). More like summer than spring!

As I knew we would be rushing about in the morning before heading to the sandy playground I picked my comfortable Converse to wear, they look so good with denim! Again I picked a graphic tee to wear with the floral kimono, I thought this navy one was a good combo with the green floral, even if the graphic print is quite large. Decided the silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was the best accessory, as the graphic tee and the floral printed kimono meant I didn't want a necklace. This metallic silver goes with everything!

Floral Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A floral kimono is a fun topper to a casual denim and tee outfit. For something a little different, swap out a basic tee for one with a graphic design on it! You can match the graphic print to a colour in the kimono like the first outfit, or pick a contrasting colour like in the second outfit.

Spring: Kimonos and Skinny Jeans With Space Dye Tops And Green Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip Bag

Two different skinny jeans and kimonos outfits for two very different days! I'm enjoying the warmer spring weather as I get to wear my kimonos again after passing over them all winter.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

This gorgeous green duster kimono was a piece I picked up in the Jeanswest sale back in August. I've been making more of an effort to wear green recently and found out I quite like it, so when I saw this released I knew I was going to snap it up on sale. Even if I did have to visit two stores before I found it, ha! Thought it was the perfect topper for my neutral skinny jeans and tee outfit, and the little emerald green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag compliments it nicely.

I did consider wearing a green statement necklace with this but decided it might be a little too much green! I went with this recently thrifted blue beaded necklace, which matched my navy tassel earrings. The space dye tee was thrifted at the same time too, a great wardrobe basic that still had the tags attached.

Wore this for a relaxed Saturday with a big walk for the dogs, swim lessons and attending a local fashion show. The theme was colours for spring so I felt this green floral kimono was the perfect topper. Was a nice lightweight layer for a windy day, as you can tell from the pics!


Last worn: tassel earrings, blue beaded necklace, space dye tee, black skinny jeans, ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip. First time I've shared the kimono on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearspace dye tee and red jeans, black skinny jeans and knitted jumper, ballet flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip and matching necklace.

Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans:  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:

In complete contrast to the outfit above, this is a lot darker and not as colourful (even though I'm wearing the same green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag) and a lot cosier! It was also not as relaxing of a day, ha!

It was a really cold morning so I figured I'd better get this knitted poncho / kimono out again to keep me warm at the playground with the kids. I ended up regretting this though when the day heated up, and in the middle of running errands I left it in the car, just too hot!

I love this peplum space dye tee and I thought the effect on it was subtle enough that it looked nice with the print on the kimono. I really liked the outfit, even if I didn't wear the knitted poncho for long! The skinny jeans and Converse were good for all the running around we did. I had a few errands to run and places to visit, and some roadworks meant changing my plans a little with the diversions so I was a bit flustered all morning! As you can see by the setting sun in the pic, didn't even get to take my usual outfit photo in the morning. One of those crazy busy days.

Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A kimono is the perfect topper for those in-between seasons! You can keep it light and airy with a viscose fabric one, or be a little cosier in the colder mornings and evenings with something knitted. A kimono is an easy layer to take off if needed when the weather changes.

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!

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.

Adding Colour To Neutral Knits With Skinny Jeans & Balenciaga Bags

The simple outfit formulas are ones I keep coming back to! Cosy neutral knits, skinny jeans and Balenciaga bags with a touch of colour make an easy outfit for a mum. While I wore these back in winter last month they would work on a cold spring day too!

What I wore:

JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

A busy but fun filled day! Had to take my son to an appointment before Kindy and then drop him off at Kindy a little later. It was a stressful morning trying to fit everything in but I had the whole afternoon to myself before Kindy pickup. I headed to the opshop to drop off three boxes of things we no longer wanted, and had a little browse of the clothes as they had a fill a bag for $5 sale on.

I certainly made the most of being kid free, trying on a basket and arm full of clothes and filling up a bag for the boys and a bag for myself - 19 pieces all together! Not bad for $10! Made some time to film some videos before going to pickup the kids too.

I like wearing this ombre knit with my colourful denim collection, I think the neutral colours work well with brights and it's the first time I've worn these green jeans and knit together. I really liked the combination.

I added the black Balenciaga part time bag as it fit everything I needed for the appointment, but I did wonder if I should have worn black ballet flats instead of these tan ones with the black bag. Still liked my outfit though!

Why I wore it:

Wearing a similar outfit again, cosy knit and skinny jeans but this time I stuck with a classic black pair of jeans and added the colour through my accessories. This pink Fashion Scarf Girl crinkle scarf, while a different shade from the Balenciaga city bag, makes such a nice combination worn together. I've worn the scarf and bag together before here too!

This was a nice simple and colourful outfit for church. I like how the foil polkas dots on the grey knit are subtle enough that I can wear it with anything!

How You Can Wear It:

On a colder day, a cosy knit is a staple with skinny jeans! You can try changing up your outfit a little by adding some colour to a neutral knit  - by swapping classic blue jeans for a brighter pair, or adding some colourful accessories like a scarf or bag.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Matching Handbags and Necklaces with Printed Shirts and Colourful Pants For The Office

For roday's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two simple yet colourful outfits I wore to the office. Keeping the accessories as colourful as my pants, I matched my handbags to my bright beaded statement necklaces. I've previously shared about matching bags to shoes, scarves and printed tees before, this time I'm wearing matching accessories together.

What I wore:

olive skinny jeans and mixed print shirt business causal outfit matching shoes and necklace emerald green | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
ShirtJeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
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:

In case you missed me sharing the news on Instagram, this fluffy and very curious dog is our temporary foster family member while we dogsit. She loves coming up to me while I'm taking photos and trying to figure out what I'm doing, it can make taking photos a little tricky!

I was eager to wear my new Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag after I bought it on eBay, and I knew this green statement necklace would be the perfect match with it. I've worn it with olive jeans before so knew I'd like this combination, and this printed shirt is an easy simple piece to make my jeans a little more dressed up for the office. But when your boss wears jeans you don't really need to try too hard to dress up denim!


Last worn: mixed print shirt, green statement necklace, olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats. It's the first time I've worn the bag on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmixed print shirt and shorts, olive skinny jeans for long haul flight, gold mouse flats and wrap dress.

My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:







What I wore:

pinstripe shirt with burgundy pants and red accessories matching necklace and bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue
Necklace: thrifted red flat bead necklace
Shirt: Target mint stripe shirt
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I've worn this mint striped shirt with the burgundy pants before and really liked the combination, so I thought I'd wear it again. A classic button up shirt is great for the office, and this one is a comfortable linen. It does however start to look quickly crumpled through the day, and was more noticeable as I left the sleeves down this time instead of rolling them up.

The red and burgundy combo was a new one for me to try - this thrifted necklace pairs so nicely with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and I thought they would be a fun combo together with the pants.

Didn't like this as much as last time I wore this shirt and pants together though, I think since I was trying the red and burgundy I should have went with a more neutral shirt. Very comfortable outfit for a busy day at work though!


Last worn: mint striped shirt, red statement necklace, burgundy pants, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

Perfect for pregnancymint striped shirt in second trimester, burgundy pants in first trimester, camel ballet flats in third trimester.



Printed Shirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic printed shirt works well in the office to bring a little interest to corporate separates. For something a little more fun, you can try pairing a printed shirt with colourful pants, or sneaking a pair of jeans into your outfit like I have with the first one if you work in a less formal environment.

Striped Tops, Skinny Jeans, Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff MAB

A brief period of warmer weather near the end of winter last month had me ditching some of the layers and going without a jacket or cardigan. Still with longer sleeves though! These striped 3/4 length sleeve tops were overdue a wear.

A stripes and denim outfit combination is always a winner, and great for stay at home mum days.

What I wore:

DressAtmos&Here 3/4 sleeve stripe tee in berry white
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs suede flats in red
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This top has been badly overlooked all winter - it's a favourite for me, it's nice and thick and so cosy on the cooler days. I decided to let the top be the star and keep everything else neutral, with the grey skinny jeans, grey Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag and my fun grey feather embroidered scarf.

I couldn't decide what shoes to wear with this until I remembered my little red suede ballet flats. I love these shoes but so rarely wear them as I tend to go for neutral shoes instead. Even though the red of the shoes is a different shade from the burgundy stripes on the tee, I thought it was a fun combination and really enjoyed wearing this! Simple outfit for a day with the boys, running a few errands and visiting the library and playground.

TopJeanswest 'Marina' stripe henley
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy morning! Swimming lessons, attending the Lion King Ooshies swap day and then an appointment, all before lunch, phew! Wanted something simple so went with this classic striped Henley and my green skinny jeans. I like navy with these green jeans, and the stripes go so well with it. Added in a bolder bright blue with the cosy cobalt Louis Vuitton shawl too, which helped keep me warm in the cooler morning before the temperatures heated up.

With the bright scarf and jeans together, I went with a neutral bag and shoes. These silver ballet flats go with everything and the Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag in grey is a wardrobe staple, which was big enough to fit my things in, some things for the boys and of course our Lion King toys for the swap day.

The swap day was a little hectic, but I thought it would be fun for the boys to go to swap some of the extra toys they had after they completed their collection. They swapped with others to pick some new toys for them to play with and to let the others complete their collections. I was proud of how they behaved and shared and swapped. They came home and immediately started playing 'swap day' with the toys they had so I know they enjoyed the experience!

Striped 3/4 Length Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped top with longer sleeves is great for days when you don't need or want an extra jacket or cardigan over the top. You can keep it simple and wear a bright striped top with neutral jeans, or add more colour with some bright jeans instead. Either way, you can't go wrong with a classic stripes and jeans combo!

Two Ways To Wear Leopard Print Tees: Matching Bags To Your Top

Wearing two very different leopard print tees and matching them to my handbags to create some cute winter outfits with my cosy cardigans and skinny jeans. I've shared other ways to match your bag before, to your shoes and to your scarves. This time, I'm matching to the printed tees.

In further proof that I may take the outfit formula thing too far some days, and keep wearing the same thing over and over, I'm wearing the same necklace in both outfits! I did wear these a couple weeks apart though.

What I wore:

neon orange sass bide leopard print tee with grey wool maxi cardigan skinny jeans rebecca minkof love bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | movie day mums tyle grey skinny jeans maxi cardigan with neon leopard print tee orange peach small love bag

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a family movie date. I really love this Sass & Bide neon orange leopard print tee, but it's quite a statement piece and so one I only wear sparingly. Which is silly really, I should wear the things I enjoy more often!

Jeans and a tee was the perfect comfortable outfit for taking the kids to the movies - and the cosy wool maxi cardigan, while ideal for the cold air conditioning in the cinema, was actually a bit warm for being out in the sun, it was a beautiful winter day. But it was also the day we had set aside for the movies, so indoors we stayed!

Since I realised my new smaller wallet fits inside this Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I've been wearing it a lot more. I noticed it was the perfect shade to compliment the neon leopard print of the tee, as although it's officially "pale coral" it's really more of a peach.

The grey wool maxi cardigan, skinny jeans and silver ballet flats with nice neutrals with all of the orange.

Why I wore it:

Following the outfit formula above, I wore this Kmart grey leopard print tee with a matching grey bag, the Rebecca Minkoff love bag in the regular size.

Again I went with neutral jeans, black Nobody denim skinny jeans, and instead of ballet flats I wore Converse as I was spending the morning at the playground, catching up with Jess who I met on Instagram.

With all of the grey and black together I wanted to add just a little more colour, so wore my fun mustard cardigan that, like the tee, was a $2 bargain. It was so funny that Jess was wearing mustard too!

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a wardrobe staple for a mum, and changing it up with a printed tee like these fun leopard print ones is a great way to make your outfit feel a little more special. You can add more colour to your outfit by matching your bag to the print on the tee, or just throwing a bright cardigan on top if your print is neutral.
