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!

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!

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!

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!

Dusters With Jeans and Tee Outfits: Green For Spring

Making the most of spring and posing in front of more beautiful jacaranda trees!

I used to be so unsure of how to wear green and didn't have much of it in my wardrobe. I decided to try challenge myself with it a couple of years ago and since then I've been having a lot of fun with green in my wardrobe! It seems like such a nice colour for spring, and I'm wearing it in two different ways in the below jeans, tee and duster outfits.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond with bracelet stack green floral kimono | awayfromtheblue

JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Wore this for church on a day that turned out to be a lot hotter than I anticipated! I felt the jeans were a bit overkill when we walked out of church into the heat of the day in the afternoon. I'd planned the outfit to stay warm in the cold aircon at church, but wished I'd picked shorts for the rest of the day.

Again I'm using this pretty green floral duster kimono to add a little more colour to a monochrome jeans and tee outfit, just like I did here. You've seen me wear this duster a lot recently, I knew I'd get a lot of wear from it when I bought it! I also knew I was going to stop on the way to church to grab a pic with this pretty purple Jacaranda tree so the floral duster seemed fitting!

I thrifted this grey tunic a couple of months ago and it's so soft and comfortable. With the neutral tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag I added the bracelets for a little more colour too, I thought they complimented the green kimono nicely.


Last worn: green floral kimono, beaded necklace, grey tunic, black skinny jeans, gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

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

Why I wore it:

These photos did not turn out as well as the ones above! I'd been excited to take pics in this jacaranda-lined street for a while and finally got the chance when we were heading out to a messy play morning, as we pass this street on the way. Unfortunately the street was quite busy and I couldn't park where I wanted so we had to do a bit of a trek back to the trees and I was a little on edge as I could hear people inside the house at this tree. It was the closest one to our car though so I quickly got Mr 5 to snap a few photos and then rushed back to the car and away so we didn't disturb the home owners anymore. Didn't end up with the best photos but I did like the outfit!

If I only shared the outfits or the photos I loved on this blog I'd never have anything to post! Don't get me wrong, sometimes, like in the first outfit, the outfit and pics turn out brilliantly. But sometimes the outfit doesn't come together like I planned or the photos are overly dark and blurry. I'd rather share the good and the bad though, it's a personal style blog and what I wear each day, not a perfectly composed fashion blog.

Again this was a simple jeans and tee outfit, this time around the colour was from the bright green skinny jeans, and I used the striped duster to add some extra print to my outfit. I liked how the green jeans and bag went together too. I wanted things that were all easily washable as the messy play morning can get a bit messy sometimes, ha! Thankfully I stayed clean and dry, while the boys needed a little change of clothes when they got home. They had such a fun morning though, messy play is always a hit.

Dusters Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a mum staple! For something a little different, try adding a bit of colour of print with a duster. It's a nice light layer on a warm spring day. You could even swap out your classic black or blue jeans for a brighter pair like I have in the second outfit if you're feeling particularly colourful.

Peplum Tops Bright Skinny Jeans And Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

I might be trying to stay away from the blue jeans rut but there's no denying jeans are a mum staple! I paired some of my colourful skinny jeans with anther great mum-friendly piece, peplum tops (perfect for hiding a mum-tum!). Accessorised both these outfits with my go-to Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bags.

Tee: thrifted black and white space dye peplum tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

If you haven't been following along on Instagram, I'm on a quest to take outfit photos near all the jacaranda trees we pass when we are out 😂 A sure sign of spring in Brisbane, when everything is blanketed in beautiful purple flowers for a few short weeks.

I took the boys out to a local park and drove down this street - I knew it would be the perfect spot for photos. I may have picked this street to drive by because my friends took beautiful wedding photos here with the jacarandas, ha! You can see them lined up the street behind me there too. With two young kids though I needed to stick to the paths so picked this not too tall tree to pose by. My youngest boy decided to spend his time waiting while his brother took pics searching for the perfect fallen jacaranda flower to give me, and once he picked it he just couldn't wait on the sidelines any longer! You can't see as I cropped him out of that first photo, but he stood close by and in the frame of every shot after giving me the flower, ha!

That's life with toddlers though - and I like the photobomber outtakes as they have his cute little face in them! Photos done and flower safely stored away we spent a few hours in the playground.

Outfit wise I kept it simple, this comfortable peplum tee was a great neutral with the bright red skinny jeans. Both the tee and jeans were thrift finds, as is the statement necklace. The metallic silver mini MAC bag seemed like a good neutral to accessorise with.

Why I wore it:

Another brightly coloured outfit, with another pair of colourful jeans. These purple jeans are often worn with blue, and they are the first thing that came to mind when this navy bird print peplum tank popped up on my Instagram archive - it inspired me to get the tank out again. I'm sure I'm not the only personal style Instagrammer being inspired to pull pieces out again or try outfit combos after seeing things pop up on the Instagram archive! With the pink bird print I went with pink accessories: the blush necklace and the neon pink mini MAC bag was an extra burst of colour.

As it was forecast to rain most of the day we headed around the furniture stores and Ikea, keeping out of the worst of the weather and missing the storms entirely.

How You Can Wear It:

A peplum top is a great piece to wear with jeans. Super comfortable and great for hiding a mum-tum or a food baby, it's a nice little frill detail that elevates a tank or tee. For an extra bright outfit, you can try wearing a pair of colourful jeans instead of a classic black or blue pair.

Matching Bright Bags to Skinny Jeans With Tees and Kimonos

Taking advantage of the spring weather to wear two blue kimonos. Wearing two different brightly coloured jeans that match the bags I chose to wear too. I like being a little matchy-matchy when wearing a colourful bag. I've shared matching bags to shoesscarves and printed tees before too.

What I wore:

TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a warm spring day that quickly turned into a very hot day! I regretted picking this kimono a little, it's  a cosy cocoon style which was a bit too warm by the time we got halfway around the bike trail the boys were scooting and biking around.

I regretted the white tee choice too when we did some baking later in the afternoon. Luckily the cocoa powder stains came out in the wash!

I did like the colour combo in this outfit though, navy and green look so nice together and the little green Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip bag complimented the green jeans nicely.


Last worn: floral kimono, flat beaded necklace, white tee, green skinny jeans, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag.

Why I wore it:

Sticking with the same simple outfit formula I wore above with a blue kimono, v-neck tee and bright skinny jeans. Went with red ones and picked my little red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag as well. Just like the bag and jeans above, the shades don't match exactly but do compliment each other nicely.

Wore this on a day it was predicted to rain so we headed out to an indoor play place for the kids. It didn't rain but the boys did have a lot of fun, especially when the special guest arrived. Queen Elsa was very lovely and "remembered" them from Disneyland which made their day! Something a bit different for them and they really enjoyed it.

How You Can Wear It:

A brightly coloured bag can easily be matched to something else in your outfit, like these bright skinny jeans. Wearing them with other neutral pieces like the tees or pairing with your favourite colour like these blue kimonos makes for a simple colourful outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Navy Blouses and Colourful Pants Business Casual For Spring

I love a good outfit formula, so for today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two very similar outfits I recently worn to work with colourful pants and classic navy blouses and my slouchy Balenciaga Part Time bag.

What I wore:

Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt with burgundy pants statement necklace for the office | awayfromblue

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | burgundy skinny pants with Target navy collared blouse with balenciaga part time bag

Blouse: Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt (new purchase)
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

First wearing of this new navy blouse I picked up in the Target clearance sales! In the last days of the sales things are often reduced to $5, so when I needed a break from the office one lunch time I headed to target in the city to browse the sale. I got this great blouse reduced from $39 to $20 and then the extra 50% off made it $10, not a bad deal! I tried on a few other things but this was the only one that worked. The statement necklace was another new purchase and impulse buy, just $3 from the opshop! September was a month of impulse buying for me.

It's not the first time I've worn these burgundy pants with navy tops, it is a frequent go-to combo! I kept the rest of the accessories simple, with the silver ballet flats, black Balenciaga Part Time bag and metallic necklace, to let the colours be the star of the outfit.

The only thing I did notice with this blouse is that the collar on the back pulls it down quite a bit with the extra weight - as it's a flowy swing style it's not fitted enough to stay in place. I'll need to try tuck it in next time I wear it! It was nice and comfortable for work, and I like the cute piping detail along the sides of the sleeves, even if I did forget to get a good pic of it as I was so busy giving our little doggy guest some pats! She's squeezing in all the pats she can while being dog sat by us before she returns to her family.


Last worn: burgundy pants, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag. First time I've worn the navy blouse and statement necklace as they are both recent purchases.

JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first navy blouse, this one is an oldie. I picked it up on sale last year and it's been the best addition to my wardrobe. I like the studded detail for a little extra interest, and the tie at the neckline means that I didn't need to add a necklace with this. I did add my teal earrings though for a little extra colour. With the navy blouse, olive pants and teal earrings I kept the accessories simple again, going with my fave black ballet flats and my Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Just like the outfit above, these olive pants have been worn with navy before, even though it's surprisingly the first time I've worn this blouse and jeans together before. Got to love a business casual environment where people can wear jeans through the week - these olive ones look deceptively like standard pants but have all the comfort of jeans! They are so good at doing double duty for work and SAHM days.

My nails are OPI a good man-darin is hard to find, just like in the outfit above. I felt like getting this bright colour out again for spring.

How You Can Wear It:

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:

graphic tee and nobody denim skinny jeans cotton on leah magenta floral kimono peach love bag | awayfromblue

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

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.

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
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.
