Two ways To Wear a Navy Tank (With Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford Bag)

For today's weekday wear post I'm sharing two ways I've recently worn this navy tank. A breastfeeding piece I got when pregnant with my eldest boy, it's such a staple it's never left my wardrobe even though my breastfeeding days are behind me!

I'm continuing to blog as much as possible while the world is so uncertain, it's part of my routine and after 8 years of blogging and outfit photo taking it would be weird to stop! However, not going out as often and working from home has meant more loungewear, so I have less outfits to share as I only share pics of what I actually wear out the house.

While I've dropped my Wednesday post I'll still endeavour to post Monday and Fridays. In fact you'll see this navy top again in my 30 ways to wear post this Friday, as it's hit 30 wears!


What I wore:

Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
Shorts: Jeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Wore this to quickly pop out to do the school run and get groceries two weeks ago, which seems so long ago now. While social distancing wasn't as much of a thing then I thought this beautiful green floral duster kimono would help keep my personal space as it can billow out behind me when I walk quickly 😂 It also brought some extra colour to my outfit to cheer me up and boost my mood - grocery shopping has been a bit difficult lately with the shortages around and I needed something to make me smile.

The navy tank and the blue Bermuda denim shorts were another attempt to make me smile - blue is my favourite and go-to colour when I want to feel a little happier!

With the green kimono breaking up the blue a bit I thought this navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag would be a nice compliment to the blue tank and shorts. Normally I'd have more exciting things in mind for the first outings with a new bag, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to wear this bag while I still can! Even if it was just for the school run and grocery shopping.

Unboxing My Latest Rebecca Minkoff Purchase:




No "what I bought this month" post up as with all the craziness in the world I only have this bag I bought to share, and a fun orange blazer I got preloved. I optimistically bid on it a few weeks before things changed in Australia, when I was still going into work and it eventually arrived on my second week of who knows how many weeks working from home. I'm hopeful it will make an appearance on the blog soon...but it is really an office piece!




What I wore:

Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I kept this completely monochromatic with navy and blue. I really like the navy Micro Bedford bag with the blue floral skirt, it was such a nice combination. The silver necklace is an older favourite and was a bit of matchy-matchy with the silver hardware on the micro Bedford bag, and silver ballet flats.

Another day of being mostly at home - I did pop out to the grocery store again after school drop off and helping in my son's classroom. It was the second time that week I'd been to the grocery store, hoping that there would be more in stock. Got a few more things from my list thankfully, but there were still a lot of bare shelves even with the newly implemented shopping limits.

Yes, we need shopping limits at all our grocery stores to stop people hoarding and panic buying! A couple in front of me had some of their shopping removed by the cashier because they hadn't stuck to the limits. Thankfully there was no angry outbursts or need for police intervention as I've seen around a lot lately. What a crazy world we live in!

How You Can Wear It

A navy tank is a great wardrobe basic! It's a great base outfit piece for pairing with a bold print - something contrasting in green like the kimono, or a little more monochromatic with a blue floral maxi skirt.

Navy Skirts And Printed Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

I've been wearing a lot of maxi skirts lately! They are a nice option for staying covered up but still cool in the hot and humid weather (even though it's officially autumn now in Brisbane!).

What I wore:



Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I've been looking at this thrifted printed tee in my wardrobe for a while realising it was overdue a wear, but I always picked something else to wear instead. This plain navy maxi skirt was the perfect pairing and let the tee be the statement in the outfit. The tee was thrifted for just $1 and the skirt was another thrift find at $4 making this a very affordable outfit!

The bag of course is on the more expensive side! This Rebecca Minkoff Regan is becoming a staple when I spend the day with my youngest while my eldest is in school. I can easily fit both our water bottles inside along with some wipes and hand sanitiser (and my phone and wallet of course) so it saves me also carrying a baby bag too. We had a busy morning but a relaxed afternoon at home before school pickup.


Last worn: abstract print tee, blush tassel necklace, navy maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearabstract print tee and shorts, navy maxi skirt with stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and pencil skirt.



What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan










What I wore:



Necklace: engraved interlinked silver circle family name necklace
Top: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoes:slim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I purchased this tee on our Europe trip last year while shopping in Primark in Edinburgh. I wasn't sure how much wear I'd get from it but it worked out to be around $5 so I couldn't resist! It's actually been getting a bit of wear since I bought it - being a lover of blue I find it works so well with a lot of my wardrobe and it's nice to try wear a little bit more white. Couldn't resist going matchy-matchy and pairing the navy and white graphic tee with the navy and white striped maxi skirt.

Even my Havaianas and my Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag were navy, a very matchy-matchy outfit for me! After the school run we did a quick grocery shop, and then running a few errands after school pick up.


Last worn: Edinburgh graphic tee, silver necklace, navy striped maxi skirt, Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearEdinburgh graphic tee and jeans, navy striped maxi skirt and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag in the office.




Navy Maxi Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A navy maxi skirt is a great wardrobe staple, and paired with a tee is a simple mum friendly outfit. For something a little different you can try introducing other prints and patterns with a printed or graphic tee, or stripes.

Foil Print Tees and Maxi Skirts With Balenciaga First Bag

Easy outfits for hot days with a maxi skirt and tee. I decided to get these foil print tees out again, they are a fun twist on a classic plain tee but still so wearable. And based on some of the tops I saw in stores the other week, the foil print trend is still around!

What I wore:

Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

When I want to buy things I think of two ways to wear them right away. I knew I wanted to wear this ochre skirt with navy, blue and orange look so good together! I thought the gold foil polka dots tied in nicely with the rich colour of the skirt too. Can't believe this tee hasn't been worn in over a year! I definitely need to wear it more!

Couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the turquoise necklace and the blue India Balenciaga first bag. I loved the way the addition of the third colour brought even more brightness to this outfit.

Only downside was that I realised while sitting at the sidelines of my son's tennis lesson that you could see the strapping of my injured knee through this skirt and it's not as opaque as I thought! Will be sure to keep that in mind for future wears!


Last worn: foil print polka dot tee, turquoise tassel necklace, ochre maxi skirt, New Balance sneakers, Balenciaga first bag.

Other ways to wearfoil print polka dot tee and shorts, ochre maxi skirt and stripes, Balenciaga first bag and pencil skirt.

Earrings: Colette Sangria sunset disc stud tassel earrings
Tee: Jeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Although I just recently wore this foil stripe tee with shorts, I picked it out to wear again as it's so fun to wear with the foil print. It was perfect with the maxi skirt for church. With the white tee and black skirt I felt a little extra colour was needed so I decided to wear these fun neon peach tassel earrings I got for Christmas. Surprisingly I haven't given them a wear yet!

The turquoise Balenciaga first bag was another bright burst of colour with this outfit, and I really liked the little additional colour touches. I wore the same shoes I've been wearing for weeks since my knee injury before the new year, my daggy old running shoes! Did cringe a little when I saw a Grandad at church wearing very similar shoes 😂

Other ways to wear: foil stripe tee and shrots, thrifted black maxi skirt worn two waysBalenciaga blue India first bag and floral dress.


Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print is a fun touch on a classic staple tee, and it's something that keeps popping up regularly in the stores. Just like a basic tee, they are so easy to wear! You can wear the tee with something plain on the bottom, like a maxi skirt, to avoid any print clash struggles.

Striped Tanks and Thrifted Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

When I bought these maxi skirts last month I knew I wanted to wear them with stripes right away! Although I just shared about them on Wednesday's Monthly purchase post, today I'm showing more details about some of the ways I've worn them. With a plain block colour maxi skirt, a striped tank is a great pairing.

What I wore:

black and white striped tank with ochre tree of life maxi skirt crossbody bag | awayfromblue

Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TopAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really love the colour of this maxi skirt! As you can see it seems to change colour in different lights - it looks pretty similar to the tan bag at first but as you can see in the Insta pic it's a much more yellow tone. I did like the tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag with it though. It was the perfect size for carrying the essentials when we popped into the grocery store after church.

Unfortunately we didn't quite miss the storm was was threatening though and I got a little drenched running to the car! This maxi skirt was not fun to wear when wet! Will need to remember to keep it to rain-free days only.

With the striped tank and the block colour maxi skirt I added just a little print mixing with the tortoiseshell necklace. Simple outfit for a stormy day.

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

My other recently thrifted maxi skirt, I went a little more matchy-matchy with this one and stuck with a navy stripe tank to match the navy skirt. I even picked a blue beaded necklace to tie in with it too, along with the navy Havaianas!

The tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag was a nice bit of contrast with the navy - I really like the two neutrals together. Great outfit for the school run and a few errands on a hot summer day.

What I Bought In February And How I've Worn It: Second Hand Finds

After a big spend in January, I really wasn't intending on spending anything in February. However I couldn't resist just a little browse in the opshop when we passed by and ended up buying a couple of things! This month everything I got was second hand.

What I Bought:




Why I Bought It:


We were walking by the opshop when my son noticed the door was ajar and ran in so how could I say no? 😂 We did the usual checkout of books and toys before I had a small browse of the clothes. With nothing particularly in mind but an extra 50% off summer stock I tried a few things on. Being petite maxi skirts are hard to find - in regular stores as well as opshops! - so I wasn't sure these would fit well. So pleased to find out that they don't need any alteration! I suspect that the ochre maxi skirt is actually a midi skirt, but it's a maxi length on me. It's a beautiful shade - couldn't tell if it was more rust or mustard, and it seems to change colours in different lights! I think it's a true ochre.

I'm a little annoyed that the navy maxi skirt doesn't have any labels other than the fabric tag saying it's viscose as it's so soft and such a good fabric for summer. Such a great find and it's a shame I don't know the brand to be able to hunt out more!

The jeans are a little difficult to explain - an impulse buy when it was cooler with the wild weather and I wondered if I should get some jeans. I stumbled across these at a great price on eBay and was excited to get them. However when they arrived they were not in the condition the auction made them out to be. I emailed the seller with pics of the disappointing condition and asked if I could try wash them or if they wanted me to return them without trying anything. The seller then immediately apologised and refunded me. I then washed them and they came up good as new. Since the seller had cancelled the transaction and refunded me I couldn't do anything about it, leaving feedback or anything. I did offer to send them back now clean but she said to keep them. So technically, I paid nothing for these jeans. And then since that took a while to sort out, the weather heated up again so I haven't worn them yet. And I also feel really guilty that I didn't pay anything as I got my money refunded!


How I've Worn It:




I set myself the rule of wearing things twice in the month I buy them and even with being a little unwell for February I managed to meet that goal with the skirts. Maxi skirts just work so well into my life as a mum, the perfect length for church or the school run, and with the heat and humidity these light skirts have been a good choice. Was so easy to hit my wear twice goal with these skirts and I have so many more outfits in mind for them!

The jeans I didn't wear as it's just been too hot. They are sure to get more wear when Autumn weather finally arrives, now it's officially autumn we just have to wait for the summer heat to leave here in Brisbane! They are a very bold magenta so I'm excited to show them off once the weather cools down.

A few purchases even if I wasn't intending to buy anything this month! I'm pleased everything was preloved though, second hand shopping is a lot kinder to my wallet and the environment.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Pink Tees and Blue Printed Maxi Skirts with Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sharing two similar casual outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, that follow the same basic outfit formula but look very different. I like pink and blue together, so on some stay at home mum days I paired two different pink tees with printed blue maxi skirts and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

I share a lot of workwear looks for the linkup, but I only work part time so aside from the two days I'm in the office during the week I'm pretty casually dressed!

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Decided to get pics of this lovely outfit while we were out by the bayside - unfortunately the tide was out so it's not as pretty as I thought it would turn out, haha! I had one on one time with my son and while we did have to get groceries on the way back home, we spent the morning playing by the sea and having a special morning tea just the two of us. By the time the tide had rolled in, my outfit was covered in cake, apple juice and sand so I wasn't going to try repeat the photos! 😂

This raspberry pink tee works so well with the navy stripe maxi skirt - I feel I haven't given this skirt much attention lately, it's a great basic piece and pairs so well with many colours. This raspberry tee was a Christmas gift from my mum and works well with all of the blue I have in my wardrobe! Matched the navy stripes with the navy and gold necklace and the navy and pink Havaianas. I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was perfect as I didn't take the baby bag. I carried the wipes, hand sanitiser and both our water bottles in it to save having to bring the baby bag along too.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above - pink tee, printed blue maxi skirt, but a lot brighter with the hot pink frill sleeve tee and the bright blue floral maxi skirt. I really liked this outfit - it was a bit of a bold pairing but it made me smile all day! I added the purple crescent necklace for a little extra colour but I'll be honest the pink tee is so bold you barely notice it!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull as I had a busy day ahead, including taking advantage of some rare kid-free time in the afternoon to finally go to the optician and discover that I did need new glasses (I use glasses for working at the computer). Turned into a very expensive day!

Blue Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A blue printed maxi skirt looks great worn with a simple basic tee. You don't have to stick to neutrals though! You can pick a soft pink, or even a bold bright pink, for something a little different that's still just as comfortable. Pink and blue are a great combination in any shades!

Two Ways To Wear A Navy V-Neck Tee: Jeanswest Sophie V-Neck Tee

This navy tee is one of the ones I picked up from Jeanswest during my massive Christmas gift card shopping spree. They'd only brought out into the store that day (the sales assistant had trouble scanning it) and so it was perfect timing! While I love blue I didn't have a navy v-neck tee. So pleased I do now! It works so well with the other pieces I have in my wardrobe, and I'm wearing it two different ways below.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with monochromatic blue outfit | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
SkirtAlly Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Just knew I had to pair this navy tee with this blue maxi skirt. Something my mum got me for Christmas, this skirt has been on frequent repeat lately as it's so perfect for summer! I really liked the navy with the brighter blue of the skirt, and accessorising was so simple. The blush necklace and peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag work so well with the pink flowers in the floral print.

This was a quick and easy outfit to pull together to head over to my friends house to watch Church Online. The maxi skirt accommodated the knee brace I've been wearing when I have to drive long distances, even though she just lives 30 minutes away driving really aggravates my knee after I injured it after Christmas.

Really liked all the colours in this outfit, made my matchy-matchy self very happy, especially when I added the navy and pink Havaianas to stick with the colour scheme, haha!


Last worn: floral maxi skirt, pink beaded necklace, navy Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag. First time I've worn the navy tee as it's a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

These embroidered soft shorts are a summer fave for me and I like wearing them with blue - I added the navy tee and couldn't resist wearing this blue tie-dye kimono too, I thought all the blue went so nicely together with the olive. I added even more colour with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag for a bit of a contrast, and my little turquoise tassel necklace which I often wear with green.

A nice comfortable and colourful outfit for walking along the bike trail and then visiting the park with the boys. I didn't wear my knee brace, instead I put on my old but supportive New Balance sneakers to help reduce the impact on my injured knee as we walked around. The boys could scoot and cycle much faster than I could limp along, but luckily hubby was there to help and keep an eye on them if they went too far while I trailed behind, haha! It was a hot day so the kimono wasn't really needed, but it was nice to have some extra sun protection for my arms.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy v-neck tee is a great wardrobe basic to have! It's the perfect neutral. It looks good with other neutrals like olive and is a fun base for pink or yellow accessories like these Rebecca Minkoff bags.

Maxi Skirts and V-Neck Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

I like to stick to my outfit formulas a lot, as you'll know if you follow my blog. A plain tee and a printed maxi skirt is one formula I wear often! It's such a simple outfit for a hot day, and sticking with a plain tee means you don't have to worry about prints clashing. You don't have to restrict yourself to neutrals either, I'm wearing two bright tees with equally colourful maxi skirts below.

SkirtAlly Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt

BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wearing a lot of new pieces here! It's so fun looking at my wardrobe after Christmas and seeing all the new combinations I can come up with! This raspberry pink tee, a gift from my mum, works so nicely with this blue floral maxi skirt, another gift from my mum! While there is pink in the print of the skirt, it's a slightly different shade. I still think they work so well together though.

I kept the accessories simple, sticking with plain silver, from the silver Tiffany necklace (a Christmas gift from the boys) to the silver bracelets I never take off and the metallic silver mini MAC bag. This bag goes with everything, such a staple for me.

Why I wore it:

Another bright and colourful outfit! I got this idea from Sheila and a comment she left on a previous post where I wore this red printed maxi skirt with a white tee and mustard scarf, saying the skirt would look good with a mustard tee. There is yellow on the print of the skirt so it seems like a great pairing, but I wasn't sure about the boldness of the two pieces together. When I picked up this pale yellow tee in the Jeanswest sales after Christmas, I knew I wanted to try wearing it with this skirt!

Although the red and yellow felt bold enough I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour with this aquamarine mini MAC bag. It's a firm favourite as I like the way it works with yellow! Kept the rest of my accessories simple and neutral to let the outfit shine.

This was the perfect combination of colourful and comfortable for attending a playdate with the wonderful Sasha, our kids had such a fun time together and despite a few interruptions we got a great chat in. She's such a sweet lady and blogger and I'm so glad to have had the chance to catch up with her again! Funnily enough I wore this maxi skirt last time I met up with her too!

How You Can Wear It:

A plain tee and printed maxi skirt is such an easy outfit for mum life - whether hosting friends at home or running around after your kids at the playground! For something a little different you can try a brightly coloured tee to wear with the maxi skirt, picking a colour out from the print to find the perfect colour of tee.
