3 Ways To Wear Band Tees: #sparklePunchMusicMonth

A bit of a bumper post today, sharing 3 outfits in one! The wonderful Jess decided to do #SparklePunchMusicMonth on Instagram in August and invited people to join in. I couldn't turn down the chance to get some of my band tees out and reminisce about my favourite concerts and memories!

I ended up wearing three different band tees through the month, which resulted in three different ways to wear band tees I wanted to show you. Because everyone loves a good graphic tee!

What I wore:

monochrome skinny jeans converse band tee outfit with sliver mini mac bag | awayfromblue

monochrome black outfit with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome black skinny jeans band tee outfit silver bag
JacketCotton On black knit wrap cardigan
Tee: Kisschasy The Final Roar band tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This band tee was one I bought at the final Kisschasy show before the band called it quits. It was a wonderful finale, even if I spent the time up the back away from the crowd as I was pregnant at the time!

A classic black and white tee with a fun print, this is a permanent fixture in my wardrobe, even if I don't wear it much. It was good to get it out again! I decided to copy the colour scheme from the tee in my outfit, sticking to black and white with the black belted cardigan, Nobody Denim skinny jeans and black and white Converse. The metallic mini MAC bag worked so nice with the monochrome.

Simple monochrome outfit for a quiet Monday with a library and playground visit.


Last worn: belted cardigan, band tee, skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Tee: Kisschasy blue tape band tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another Kisschasy band tee, but a much more colourful outfit this time! Wore this for a warmer winter day at the playground with the boys. This Kisschasy tee hasn't been worn on the blog before, it was one of the ones in my "band tee storage box" and from one of their earlier concerts that my sister and I went to. In fact I think this tee may have been my sisters at one point?

I loved wearing it though, and I thought the blue tape print (that spells out Kisschasy) worked well with the red maxi skirt. Again I stuck with converse, comfortable shoes for running around the playground. The denim jacket I actually took off while being in the sun, it was a really warm winter day, almost summer-like! Sideways Instagram outfit pic courtesy of my 5 year old who thought that it was so funny to take the photos on an angle and we all had a good giggle!

Again I wore a Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, this time this adorable little aquamarine one that goes so well with the red skirt and blue tee and jacket.


Last worn: denim jacket, red maxi skirt, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC. It's the first time I've worn the Kisschasy band tee on the blog.

Other ways to weardenim jacket and maxi dress, red maxi skirt and leather jacket, Converse and printed dress, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC and skinny jeans.

JacketJeanswest Alice longline Australian wool cardigan
Tee: The Getaway Plan yellow paint splatter band tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Finally a band tee from a different band, haha! There's something so fun about the Kisschasy tees, and I went to a lot of their shows so I have quite a collection of them!

This yellow band tee is another one from the "band tee storage box" that I've added to my regular wardrobe now after this challenge. I love this tee so much. I actually got to meet Matt from The Getaway Plan while wearing it and I shared a bit of that embarrassingly flustered encounter on Instagram. One of my fave pics still though!

Yellow and purple isn't a colour combo I'd normally go for but it works so well with this print that I had to match the colour in the tee with the purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag. With the bold yellow tee and purple bag I kept the rest of my outfit simple and neutral with my grey maxi cardigan, skinny jeans and silver ballet flats.

Comfy, cosy and colourful outfit for a public holiday day off - we headed to Ikea for brunch and got a few more things for the house.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, yellow band tee, grey skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Graphic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

#sparklepunchMusicMonth challenge was a great reason to get my band tees out again, and it shows you how easy it is to wear a classic band tee - no matter the colours! Keeping things simple and wearing a graphic tee with jeans is an easy outfit option, and perfect for mum life. You can go simple and monochrome like the first outfit or be more colourful and bring out the colours in the print with your accessories like I have in the final outfit. You can also mix thing sup a little and pair a band tee with a maxi skirt like the second outfit.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with Louis Vuitton neverfull for themepark mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.


Last worn: denim jacket, Mickey mouse tee, chambray maxi skirt, glitter sneakers, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt







What I wore:

chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee with cobalt leather jacket with red micro avery tote bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | chambray skirt graphic tee and leather jacket winter mum style
JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.


Last worn: cobalt leather jacket, Edinburgh graphic tee, chambray maxi skirt (above), tan ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery.

Perfect for pregnancycobalt leather jacket in second trimester.



Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.

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

awayfromblue Instagram | chambray maxi skirt in winter with leather jacket scarf knit and ankle boots

ScarfAlexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf
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.

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
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!


Last worn: tassel earrings, beaded necklace, blue marle knit, red maxi skirt, tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro avery tote.

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!

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt

A  new month, a new 30 ways to wear post! It's been a while since I featured a maxi skirt, and I am actually surprised that it's taken me so long to hit 30 wears with this chambray one!

Each month I go through my archives in the blog to find things I've worn 30 times or more to meet the 30 wear challenge, and compile all the times I've worn something into a helpful guide like this showing you how I've remixed things.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt


30 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt AwayFromTheBlue blog pinable image


The first 30 wears post I ever did was with a maxi skirt, but the last time I featured one was almost a year and a half ago, definitely overdue a ways to wear post with a maxi skirt for this series! This chambray maxi skirt is a stunner too! A sale purchase over 3 years ago, it's something I found through another blogger and fell in love with. I had to wait until it went on sale to get this, as I had to budget in the fact that I'd need to have it taken up, being petite. It's from the Noisy May range for tall people so there was quite a lot to cut off! 😂


Cost Per Wear

Cost per wear is a little tricky to calculate as I can't remember how much the alterations were! The skirt alone was just $24.49 and I've worn it 31 times since then, so it's under the $1 per wear that seems to be the goal most people aim for. If you add alterations as well though I would still have more wears to get that $1 a wear figure, but I know this skirt will be worn a lot more in future.

As someone who loves denim and maxi skirts, a chambray maxi skirt was an obvious choice and I really enjoy wearing this!


30 Ways To Wear Chambray Maxi Skirt: Video Style





Chambray Skirt With a Bright Top


4 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt with bright tops | away from the blue

The beautiful blue chambray skirt is a perfect pairing with bold block-colour tops! I love a good bright coral or pink tee or tank, or a longer sleeved teal henley for cooler weather. This is such a fun skirt to wear other colours with as blue goes with most of my wardrobe!



Chambray Maxi Skirt With Yellow


3 outfit ideas with yellow and chambray maxi skirt | away from blue


Calling out this colour option for you separately from the brights section above, as I love wearing this chambray skirt with yellow! Blue and yellow is a favourite and cheerful colour combination I love to wear, and enjoy pairing different amounts of yellow with this blue skirt - a little bit like a yellow bag, or a larger amount of yellow like a mustard cardigan or tee.


Maxi Skirt In Monochrome Outfit

The colour combinations above are fun to try, but you can also go the easy route and wear a monochromatic outfit with a maxi skirt. this blue chambray skirt is a great pairing for a blue tank, tee or blouse, and as you can see I'm wearing it with 3 different shades of blue here. You don't have to match the shades of the skirt and top exactly to create a monochromatic outfit!


Maxi Skirt And Graphic Tee


how to wear graphic tees and chambray maxi skirt | awayfromblue

A graphic tee looks great with denim - and not just denim shorts and jeans! You can mix it up a little and pair a graphic tee with a chambray maxi skirt for a different look. This is such a nice combination for a hot day, and creates a slightly different outfit from the ones above where I've worn the skirt with bolder block-colour tees.


Chambray Skirt and Stripes


striped top and chambray maxi skirt 4 outfit ideas | away from the blue

Just like the graphic tee set of outfits above, stripes and denim is another classic go-to outfit for me. there's something so simple about denim and stripes! I like pairing striped tees and tanks with this skirt. As it's a plain block-colour skirt, you don't have to worry about print-clashing when you pick a striped top to wear with it.


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Layers


layering ideas with a chambray denim maxi skirt outfit different seasons | awayfromtheblue

Chambray isn't just a summer fabric for me, I like to get wear out of this maxi skirt year round. that means adding layers when it gets a little cooler. It could be as simple as adding a kimono over your maxi skirt, or extra layers on a winter day like a cardigan and scarf. A leather jacket works well with a maxi skirt in winter too, particularly paired with ankle boots to keep you cosy!


Maxi Skirt and Knit


3 ways to wear maxi skirt and knitted jumper pullover outfits | away from the blue

Another winter outfit idea is to wear a cosy knitted jumper with a maxi skirt! It's such a simple outfit to wear and so incredibly comfortable. I love being warm and cosy in winter so I've worn a jumper with this maxi skirt a few times. You may need to add some extra layers like scarves, ankle boots and leather jackets if it's very cold, or even a pair of leggings under your skirt!


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Summer Tanks


4 summer tank outfit ideas with chambray maxi skirt | away from blue

Saving the simplest outfit for last - for a hot summer day, just pick this light chambray maxi skirt and add a plain or colourful tank. Simple fuss-free summer dressing for the heat! The lighter fabric of this maxi skirt means it billows around nicely as you walk, creating a cool breeze on the hot days. A great summer outfit choice!

Printed Maxi Skirts and Denim Jackets With Amerii Rattan Sling Bag

Enjoying some warmer than usual winter days with my maxi skirts and denim jackets, and my new Amerii straw bag.

Amerii contacted me through YouTube a while ago and asked if I wanted to try one of their bags in exchange for a review - I was thrilled and had fun picking out this piece to try.

What I wore:

denim jacket, plain black tee, red boho printed maxi skirt, straw circle bag winter SAHM style | awayfromblue

Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black | away from blue

TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy day! Church and then a little shopping at Kmart for things for our pantry reorganisation. Now we are all moved into our new house, we are just trying to set up everything how we like it, it's slow but fun progress! As it was slightly warmer when I wore this back in June, I just needed a denim jacket and no scarf.

With the black rattan bag, I thought a black tee and black ankle boots matched nicely and worked well with the colourful blue denim jacket and red printed maxi skirt. This skirt is a summer favourite, but it layers up well for a warmer winter day like this.


Last worn: denim moto jacket, pearl tassel necklace, black scoop neck tee, red printed maxi skirt, black ankle boots. First time I've worn the bag as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Why I wore it:

When we had that brief period of summer like weather back in the middle of June, despite it being winter, I took full advantage and the boys and I headed to our favourite playground to enjoy the sunshine. I also got the chance to wear this side-split maxi skirt, which usually I wouldn't be pulling out on a winter day!

The denim jacket wasn't really necessary, I ended up taking it off as we sat in the sunshine - it was 27° Celsius, so about 82 Fahrenheit. So unexpected for winter!

The mustard yellow tee seemed like a colourful choice for the warmer day, and was a fun pop with the white stripes. Again I stuck with the black ankle boots to match the black round rattan bag. I really liked this outfit.

How You Can Wear It:
Maxi skirts are a summer staple and great for mum life, especially if they are loose and flowy or have a side split to take advantage of a summer breeze. It's easy to layer them up for cooler weather too, with ankle boots and denim jackets. You definitely need more heavy duty layers if you're attempting to wear them on a cold winter day though! 😂

Two Ways To Wear Grey Kmart Leopard Print Tee In Winter

I saw this leopard print tee in Kmart and was tempted to buy it, at just $9. I decided I didn't need another grey tee though and put it back. When I stumbled across it again at just $2, I knew I had to get it! It's so soft and the leopard print is nice and subtle, it's so easy to wear! I've worn it two different ways below.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | grey leopard print tee worn with colourful winter layers skinny jeans cardigan regan bag mum style

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Such a simple mum outfit: jeans, a tee, and Converse. Easily made suitable for winter with a cosy cardigan on top. To make this outfit a little more interesting, I went with bright green skinny jeans. While not as cheap as the leopard print tee, they were an opshop find and so also affordable, at just $5.

The green jeans and navy cardigan are a colour combination I often wear together, and I thought they complimented the neutral grey tee nicely. An easy outfit for a day at the playground and the library with the boys.


Last worn: navy waterfall cardigan, circle pendant necklace, green skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag. First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

A busy day meant another easy outfit for mum life - this maxi skirt is a firm favourite, and the grey leopard print tee with it created a rather monochromatic outfit, especially with the leather jacket. I needed the jacket in the cooler morning but with a day of rushing around to appointments, it came off before lunchtime.

This outfit wasn't as colourful as the first one, so I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff mirco Regan bag. Such a fun pop of colour!


Last worn: printed leather jacket, House Of Harlow sunburst necklace, leopard print tee (above), black maxi skirt, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to wearprinted leather jacket worn 30 ways, black maxi skirt and foil tee, black ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and shorts.

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee is a wardrobe staple, especially when paired with a pair of jeans. To mix things up a little you can try colourful denim instead, or swap your skinny jeans for a maxi skirt, which still provides the coverage you need when running around after two toddlers!
