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:

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

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.

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! We had a fun chat as the boys played together, before I had to go grab some groceries for lunch and get back for the guys working on our solar power system.

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.

Colourful Knits and Printed Jeans With Converse & Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two colourful knits and printed skinny jeans outfits, with some very different thoughts on each outfit! While both outfits features pieces I love but rarely wear, I'll be putting one piece back into storage for the time being!

What I wore:

cobalt knit and pink neon leopard print jeans with converse and purple bag mum style | awayfromblue

pink leopard print jeans with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | colourful winter mum style pink leopard print jeans cobalt knit purple plum rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Pants: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I really like wearing these pink leopard print pants with blue, so on a colder winter day I thought this blue knit would be a great piece to wear with them. I'm surprised I haven't worn the combination before actually! It was a nice outfit for a warmer winter day - although it was a bit chilly in the shade, this light cobalt knit was all that was needed in the sun.

I did worry my outfit was maybe a little overdressed for a morning running errands and visiting the playground, as these pants can feel a bit loud, being neon leopard print! But they are so fun to wear and I enjoyed wearing them, they were definitely overdue a wear!

The pink beaded necklace matches the leopard print so nicely, and the white Converse continue on the white in the background of the pants. For something a little less matchy-matchy I picked my Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag to wear. I like purple with both blue and pink, it makes a lovely trio worn all together.

Handbag Comparison: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote and Micro Avery

KnitWildfox Couture rainbow dreamer Lennon distressed knit
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I didn't enjoy wearing this as much! I love the chevron printed jeans with the Converse, that's an outfit I've worn lots before, and the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag was a great pop of colour. It also matched the red on the rainbow knit nicely.

This Wildfox distressed knit is one I got from my friend's wardrobe clearout. It's so soft and special to me as it came from her. However it is a little tricky to wear around toddlers. I've tried it a couple of times over the years, and just like another time I wore it, I've rolled the sleeves up a bit to hide some of the distressing and make it less tempting for toddlers to pull on. But pull on it they did! It's already distressed so it's not like they were making new holes in it, but it's not designed for curious kids to try sticking their arm through the holes 😂

After wrestling them off my jumper I decided to still wear it out anyway for the morning - surely once distracted by the park the boys would give up playing with the cosy jumper. But by lunchtime it turned into one of those freak winter heatwave days and I was melting in my cosy outfit. It was easy for the boys to shed some of the layers I'd put them in that morning, me not so much. Thankfully we made it home without dying of heatstroke!

I promptly resolved to put this knit back in the winter box, to try getting it out again next year when the boys are a little bigger. Hopefully they will like it just as much then as they do now ("I like your jumper Mummy, it makes me smile"), but be a little less grabby with it!

Printed Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Jeans are a winter wardrobe staple, especially when paired with cosy knits. For something different, try a pair of printed denim instead. You can use the print to add more colour to your outfit, like I have in the first outfit, or just add more detail to an outfit like in the second outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Ombre Knit Worn 2 Ways

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm sharing two ways to wear this fun ombre knit I bought a few years ago from Jeanswest. It worked perfectly for a busy day in the office and then dinner out with some mum friends in the evening.

What I wore:

ombre knit in office with star print scarf tench coat pencil skirt magenta rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromthblue Instagram | camel trench ombre knit jumper pencil skirt star print scarf magenta bag winter office outfit
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Scarf: star print pashmina
JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

On a cold winter day, a nice knit jumper, black pencil skirt and fleece-lined tights is such an easy choice for the office, especially if you're in a casual work environment like I am. The ombre knit kept me so warm I only needed the fun star print scarf on the commute. The neutral stars pair perfectly with the camel trench coat. With all of the neutrals, even silver ballet flats, I felt this outfit needed a little pop so I wore my Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag in magenta, such a great touch of colour.

It was a little bit of a hectic day at work, ending with a big presentation that I was quite nervous about! Thankfully I had my colleague there too helping me present, and I was relieved to get good feedback about our session afterwards, as well as some compliments on my knit! A forever classic I think.


Last worn: camel trench coat, star print scarf, ombre knit, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag.

Other ways to wearcamel trench coat and mustard dress, star print scarf and warp dress, ombre knit and leopard print jeans, black pencil skirt and printed tank in summer, silver ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag and shorts.

JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

After the day at work above, I quickly dashed home to get changed and get a photo before the sun set! I kept the same knit, as I love it so much, and just made a few extra changes to make a more cheerful outfit for an evening out with some mum friends trying a new restaurant.

I've worn this ombre knit with my burgundy pants before, but this is the first time I've worn it with my red jeans. I really liked the combination, and wanted to continue the red theme with the fun skull scarf. A black leather jacket seemed a more casual option than a trench coat, but still cosy, and I added some ankle boots to keep me warm. I did look at the photos afterwards and think I should have worn black ankle boots with this instead of my nude Acne pistol boots, but with these having a bit of a heel there aren't many opportunities in mum life to wear them and I jumped at the opportunity to wear them to dinner!

The coral mini MAC bag was a completely different colour, it really seems more peach than coral to me despite the official colour name,so I thought the orange and red would look nice together. I really liked this and had a wonderful night out!


Last worn: black leather jacket, navy tassel earrings, skull scarf, ombre knit (above), red skinny jeans, Acne pistol boots, Rebecca Minkoff small love bag.

Other ways to wearblack leather jacket at Disneyland, skull scarf and striped coatigan, ombre knit and purple jeans, red skinny jeans and printed tank, Acne pistol boots and maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff small love bag and navy blouse.

Ombre Knits Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

It's great to have pieces that do double duty in the office and outside of work too! A classic neutral knit is something you will find easy to wear for so many occasions. An ombre knit looks great with other neutral pieces or can be made more fun with brighter and colourful pieces.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Feather Print Scarves & Pencil Skirts For Winter Office Wear

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm wearing two similar pencil skirt outfits for work with some fun feather detail scarves. One is a feather print scarf and the other is embroidered feathers. Both are wonderfully cosy!

What I wore:

camel trench coat, feather print scarf, white jumper, blush polka dot pencil skirt, Mulberry bayswater | awayfromblue

oak NVT Mulberry heritage bayswater bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue camel trench white knit, blush polka dot pencil skirt mulberry bayswater winter office outfit
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
Scarf: Nali feather print pashmina scarf
Jumper: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold day when I wore this! I know I've worn this pencil skirt recently but I really wanted to wear it again, this time with a cosy white knit that's originally from my mums wardrobe. Even the ribbed jumper wasn't enough to keep me warm though, the taupe feather print scarf was a must have for the cold morning. So were the ankle boots!

With all of the neutrals I went with my pink tassel earrings to add a little more colour, even though it's a brighter pink than the blush of the skirt I think it worked nicely.

What's In My Bag: Mulberry Bayswater

Mulberry oak bayswater bag in NVT leather on arm | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram navy coat with feather embroidered scarf grey tee pencil skirt mulberry bayswater

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt:  Jeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I felt a bit flustered this morning! The weather was much warmer, which meant me ditching the knit I'd planned to wear the night before, and just wearing a grey tee under my navy coat. I still wanted to wear my pretty feather embroidered scarf though, and I thought the darker grey worked nicely with the lighter grey of the tee.

With having to change my outfit at the last minute because of the weather, and already running a little late, I had a very rushed start to the day, especially after taking the first few photos with my bag facing backwards, and having to retake them again so you could actually see the detail on the Mulberry bayswater bag! Thankfully the day improved from there.


Last worn: navy mac, grey v-neck tee, feather embroidered scarf, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Mulberry Bayswater (above).

Feather Print Scarves Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple neutral top works well with a pencil skirt in the office. You can wear a knit if it's colder or a casual tee when it warms up a little. You can add a scarf for some extra interest and warmth in your daily commute too, and a printed or embroidered one is a great idea if your top is a basic neutral.

Knotted Knits Over Maxi Dresses With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

My previous post was all about wearing cosy knits with maxi skirts, today I'm showing you how I wear knits and maxi dresses together. Using a petite style hack when a top is too long for my shorter frame - just tie a knot in it! It works well with a soft knit and a maxi dress when otherwise the knit would be too long to hit at a flattering length.

What I wore: 

marle knit jumper knotted over high low maxi dress with ankle boots love bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with blue and purple outfit | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | knotted blue marle knit jumper over ruffle hem high low printed maxi dress dinner outfit
Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

This cobalt knit is one of my favourites to pull out every winter! Thrifted back in 2015, it's always so fun to wear, and I was even wearing it in my previous post too! With 13 wears so far it's doing pretty well! Much too thin for colder climates, it's perfect for Brisbane winter.

I like how the blue knit matches the blue in the print of the maxi dress! With bare legs and ankle boots, as I wore this out for a big family dinner at my parents and didn't have to be outside much - the high-low hem of the maxi dress kept my bare legs mostly covered and warm. The pink necklace doesn't match the shade of pink in the print exactly but seemed like a nice complimentary colour, and with the colourful dress, blue knit and pink necklace, the grey Rebecca Minkoff Love bag was a nice neutral choice.


Last worn: blue knit, pink tassel necklace, ruffle hem maxi dress, tan ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag.

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Knit: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Again, wearing my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag as a neutral against a bright maxi dress with a knotted jumper, but this time I picked this grey marle knit. It's a tunic length on me, with an uneven hem, so there was a lot of fabric to tie up! I decided to tie it more in the centre, and make it more of a feature than how I tied the first knit off to the side.

Apart from one moment where this knit came unfurled just as we got to church, it stayed in place all day and I quite liked this different way of wearing it. I'm guessing I'll be wearing knits over spaghetti strap maxi dresses like this more next winter too!


Last worn: grey marle knit, navy tassel necklace, tiered maxi dress, tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag (above).

Marle Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty spaghetti strip maxi dress can easily be worn in cooler weather with a cosy knit on top! If you're petite or want to add some extra definition to the outfit, you can knot the knit at your waist. Experiment with different knots depending on the jumper - you can create different looks with different knots and knot placement.

Soft Knits And Maxi Skirts In Winter With Cross Body Bags

I love layering up my maxi skirts a little more for winter! A cosy comfy knit it a great pairing with a maxi skirt, for maximum comfort and extra warmth on a winter day.

What I wore:

Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black with chambray skirt | awayfromtheblue

Knit: SES fashions mustard marle knit jumper
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold and windy day when I wore this - as you can see from my outfit being blown around a bit! It was so hard to get a pic without my scarf or hair over my face! I wasn't wearing leggings under this maxi skirt but I kind of wished I had - one of Brisbane's really cold winter mornings - the temps were down in single digits!

Our plan for the day was to go to the playground but the wind and the freezing temperatures made that a very unattractive option! Instead we just headed out on a couple of errands inside the nearest shopping centre to stay warm and get outside the house for a bit.

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the day above, this was a much warmer day! No need for the extra leather jacket or scarf, and I wasn't wishing I'd worn leggings under my maxi skirt. Although I was wearing taller boots under it so my legs were pretty cosy!

Just a quiet Sunday, with church in the morning and then Church Online in the afternoon. I really like blue and red together, and I've worn this red skirt with other blue tops in the past.

It's the first time I've tried the red bag and maxi skirt together though, it was a nice bit of matchy-matchy. Since the red micro Avery bag has gold hardware, I wore my navy and gold beaded necklace and navy and gold tassel earrings. I really liked this outfit, so nice and colourful and very comfortable!

Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt can be worn in cooler weather and isn't just a summer piece! I've been enjoying wearing my maxi skirts over winter. Adding a nice soft cosy knit is a great way to winterise a maxi skirt, adding a few more layers like a scarf and leather jacket for really cold days!
