White Printed Tees and Soft Shorts With Cross Body Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up

White printed tees and soft pull on shorts made easy summer outfits for the weeks before Christmas, as I wore these back in December.  Feeling the humidity shorts and a tee was the simplest choice!


What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag in fig | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | graphic tee and navy printed kmart shorts summer outfit with pink jean mac bag


Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff Jean MAC bag in fig 


Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a mixed day! Spent the morning working from home but had to log off early in the afternoon to take my son to an emergency appointment. Sadly it was decided during the appointment that we had no choice other than to book him in for surgery the week before Christmas. He's had a December hospital stay before as a baby and thankfully this was a shorter stay than that, but still not the best news so close to Christmas.  Luckily he recovered well and we were able to do a lot of festive activities at home, and our plan was for a quieter December anyway this year.

I really liked this outfit despite the mixed bag of the day.  The graphic print tee is one I picked up in Primark on our Europe trip back in 2019 and I thought it would go well with the floral print shorts. I've worn it with prints before, it's a good tee for that as the graphic isn't too big.

The pink Rebecca Minkoff Jean MAC crossbody bag has been worn with these shorts before too, despite being a different shade of pink from the pastel in the print of the Kmart shorts I think they work well together.

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag


Why I wore it:

Wanted to try these olive shorts with a little bit of pink and the abstract blush shapes on this printed tee was the perfect small way to wear the combination. With the lighter blue shapes in the print too I decided to try matching that with the sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC crossbody bag. I didn't need to carry much as we just had the school run, a walk around our favourite trail and then a couple of quick errands to run, a really easy day. It was pretty hot and humid though - there was no-one else on the trail, wisely avoiding the heat, and I'd wished I'd brought my water bottle with me! My son had his of course.


How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and tee is a classic, failsafe, mum-friendly outfit for a hot summer day. You can mix it up a little by trying a printed tee, it's just as easy to wear. And you can match other pieces in your outfit to the colours in the print for simple accessory selection too, like I have done with the bags in these outfits.

Christmas Outfits: Casual and Dressy | Weekday Wear Linkup

A bit of a bumper post for the Weekday Wear Linkup today, showing you three outfits I wore over Christmas. We were very lucky to be able to spend time with our families over Christmas, with few restrictions in place here in Queensland. We haven't had any cases of coronavirus in the community in our state for over 100 days so our Christmas celebrations went on as normal, even if we had a quieter December and skipped a few other events to ensure we would all be healthy and well for the most important days! I definitely didn't take it for granted this year, with virus outbreaks in NSW state making me wonder if our plans may have had to change, and my son in hospital for an operation the week before. We were very blessed to be able to celebrate as planned.

So today I'm sharing what I wore for Christmas Day and Christmas Eve with my side of the family, as well as what I wore to spend Boxing Day at hubby's family's delayed Christmas celebration. All wardrobe oldies, with the exception of a couple new bags I got for Christmas!


What I wore for Christmas day:

Jeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell grecian column style Christmas Day Outfit with gold leo envelope clutch champagne | awayfromblue

mint dress and mixed metal bracelet stack with Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch in champagne gold | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram Christmas Day outfit grecian maxi dress rebecca minkoff leo envelope clutch in champagne gold accessories


Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Dress: Jeanswest Heather textured maxi dress in eggshell (c/o)
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage silver charm bracelet and Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle


Why I wore it:

This was my outfit for Christmas day itself. I was extremely excited to be able to wear my new bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch in champagne. It was massively reduced in the stocktake sales in June, so I bought one for myself and a few others as gifts, thinking as things were starting to get safer we would be back to regular and frequent parties for Christmas and New Year, ha! At over $100 off, I figured it was worth getting. Of course, with no big festive parties this will be the only time I wear it this year but it was fun to wear for Christmas day and I hope I have more chance to go out and use this clutch next year.

I knew I was going to wear an existing dress from my wardrobe for Christmas, I've had new ones the past few years so it was time to give one I already owned some love. Couldn't decide between this eggshell one or another purple printed one, but went with this dress in the end as I thought it matched my red glitter Christmas manicure better. Although I've had it a while I've never worn it for Christmas day before! Paired it with some gold accessories to compliment the champagne gold of the clutch. It was good to get all dressed up, we usually all get dressed up for church on Christmas day and although we didn't go to church this year we continued the tradition of dressing up.


Last worngold chandelier earrings, Grecian maxi dress, studded sandals. First time I've worn the Rebecca Minkoff Leo envelope clutch.

Other ways to wearGrecian maxi dress for a birthday party, studded sandals and shorts.

What I wore for Christmas Eve:

striped maxi skirt with Fashion Scarf Girl burgundy foil reindeer and tree print Christmas scarf rebecca minkoff mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | festive santa green glitter tee with navy stripe maxi skirt for Christmas eve


Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl burgundy foil reindeer and tree print Christmas scarf (tied on bag)
Earrings: Colette Ciao Bella glitter ball drop earrings
Tee: festive glitter Santa tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Christmas ribbon bracelet and Polka Luka resin bangles in red and teal
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I wore this the day before, on Christmas eve. Every year, my family get together for a relaxed catch up before the big day. We do crafts, eat lots of snacks, listen to Christmas music, make and decorate cookies, and watch a festive movie. Which by popular demand from the kids has been the Polar Express for the past few years 😂 It's so fun to spend time together and enjoy some quiet time before the present madness of Christmas day!

Had to wear my traditional Santa tee of course, and a comfortable maxi skirt for lounging around. It was a really humid day so added the burgundy and silver foil scarf on my metallic mini MAC bag instead of wearing it round my neck. Mum got me this scarf so I was eager to wear it and figure out a way to make it work for the humid day. Thought it was a fun festive touch with the outfit.






What I wore for Boxing Day Christmas celebration:

Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress with Chloe small paraty in periwinkle blue for Christmas on Boxing Day outfit | awayfromblue

Chloe periwinkle small Paraty with navy printed maxi dress | awayfromblue

Earrings: Piper recycled metal turquoise tassel earring
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus rose gold and faux pearl bracelet stack
Bag: Chloe periwinkle small Paraty

Why I wore it:

And on the third day of Christmas...the in-laws decided to do Christmas on boxing day instead. It was nice to not have to try travel around on Christmas day itself and the kids loved another day of presents! Christmas at the in laws is a lot more casual than in my family, and a much shorter gathering, but again I went with a maxi dress. This is an old favourite and I've hit 30 wears with it so I'll need to so a ways to wear post with it soon.

Something not too formal but not too casual, a maxi dress is just right! Wore my new bag with it - a massive thank you to my friend who texted me about this bag after I'd been telling her I was thinking of a Chloe Paraty for Christmas, she stumbled across it and knew it would be perfect. My husband was very pleased to see that this one was a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the other Paraty bag I'd had my eye on too 😂 so it was my Christmas gift from him and the boys. I just love the colour and it pairs so nicely with the navy printed maxi dress. The earrings are new, a Christmas present from my mum and although they are a different shade of blue I thought it complimented the navy dress well and the gold works with the necklace, sandals and hardware on the Chloe Paraty bag.


Last wornnavy printed maxi dress, heart necklace, studded sandals (above). First time I've worn the Chloe Paraty bag and the tassel earrings as they were both Christmas presents.

Other ways to wearnavy printed maxi dress layered for winter, studded sandals and little black dress.

Olive Tops With Neon Pink Mini MAC Bag And Shorts

Olive and pink is a really nice combination - especially when you pair this very fun neon pink mini MAC bag with an olive top. It's a great little pop of colour with an otherwise neutral outfit. And a simple pair of shorts and olive top was all that was needed for these two heatwave filled days.

What I wore:

awayfromtheblue Instagram neon pink mini MAC bag with white bermuda denim shorts and olive tank


Top: Target embroidered khaki tank
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda shorts
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

It was good to get these white shorts out for another wear, as I thrifted them near the end of summer last year and they didn't get a lot of wear then. This was a relaxed day with only one appointment to go to after the school run and we spent most of the day at home, so these comfortable shorts paired with a slouchy embroidered tank was a nice idea. 

I've worn this neon pink mini MAC bag with the olive embroidered tank before, I really enjoyed the combination then and I liked it again this time too, although less layers were needed! I added the pink enamel bracelet for a little bit of matchy-matchy too!


Last worn: olive embroidered tank, neon pink enamel bracelet, white Bermuda shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wearolive embroidered tank and jeans, white Bermuda shorts worn two ways, studded sandals and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC bag with blue.

Perfect for pregnancystudded sandals in third trimester.


Adding Another Pink Handbag To My Collection!



In case you missed it, I bought this adorable little Rebecca Minkoff bag on sale last month, so now I've added another pink bag to my handbag collection!



What I wore:


black printed shorts and Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | olive and black printed shorts summer outfit with neon pink rebecca minkoff mini MAC bag

NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a busy day so I needed another easy and comfortable outfit - shorts and a tee was perfect, and the Converse were great for all of the running around. Had the school run, some errands to run, an appointment, and a very special Christmas gift to track down. End of the night was a takeaway and movie night as I was a bit tired out from trying to do so much!

The olive tee and black printed shorts was a nice neutral combination but even with the bracelet stack (which matches the tee nicely) and the silver statement necklace I felt this was missing something. The hot pink bag was the perfect finishing touch!





How You Can Wear It:

Green and pink is an unexpected combination but one that really works! Olive pairs nicely with blush and pastel pinks, or you can really contrast the pieces by picking a neon pink item instead, like this lovely bag.


Big thank you to Ivana who illustrated some of my recent outfits in her latest blog post! Go check it out!

Blue Printed Dresses And Blue Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up

More monochrome dress outfits for today's Weekday Wear Link up! Unlike last week's monochrome dress and bag combinations, this week they are two printed dresses and both blue. Easy options with longer sleeves for spring days.

What I wore:

Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress with navy rebecca minkoff regan satchel bag summer outfit | awayfromtheblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with blue boho printed dress and bracelet stack  | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | blue printed dress and navy rebecca minkof regan bag for shopping day

Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Dress: Jeanswest 'Chelsea' printed dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus silver and turquoise bracelet stack set and old blue wood bead bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon


Why I wore it:

Decided to wear the Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel with this blue printed dress as I needed something to hold water bottles and a few snacks for my son as we had a long but fun day of Christmas shopping planned with my sister. I'd picked this dress as although it's light it's got longer sleeves which work nicely to ward off the chill in the shopping centre aircon. It didn't appear that the aircon was working in the shopping centre though - or maybe it was just such a humid day it couldn't cope. Some stores were cool but walking through the main part of the shopping centre it was still quite warm.

It wasn't the most productive or successful day of shopping, but my son and I had fun with my sister anyway despite the issues that continued after the aircon failed and we set another date (and a different shopping centre location!) to get more done. Won't be going back to that shopping centre in a hurry! It was one we used to frequent when we were growing up and it's between both our houses so it's a good almost mid-point meet up but I think we will stick to other ones.

Kept my accessories simple in the heat, my little gold studded earrings and some blue and silver bracelets were all I wore, decided to go without a necklace with the tassels on the dress tied in a bow instead.



What I wore:

awayfromtheblue Instagram shein navy floral swing dress with blue mini mac bag monochromatic outfit

DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (c/o) 
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Disney Couture Winnie the Pooh bangle
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag


Why I wore it:

Tried to dress up a little for our annual Santa photo! Of course it looked a little different this year with COVID restrictions, you aren't actually allowed to get within 1.5 meters of Santa. Still took the opportunity to dress up and get a nice family photo for Christmas 2020!

I picked this pretty floral print swing dress to wear as it's a light material, good for a hot day. It was an extremely humid day though and I kind of wished I'd picked something with shorter sleeves - while the long sleeves are a nice relaxed fit it still felt like a bit much with the heat. The curls in my hair didn't quite last the day either 😂 The red and blue in the dress did tie in well with the kid's photo outfits though!

The blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC wasn't quite a match with the navy dress, but I felt it was a complimentary shade and the gold hardware worked well with the gold sandals, bauble earrings and bracelets I wore to feel a little more dressed up for the photo.


How You Can Wear It:

It's easy to pick a handbag to wear with a printed dress - just chose one that matches a colour in the print of the dress. You can create a nice monochrome or tonal outfit that way depending on the colours of your dress.

Two Ways To Wear: Green Jeans and Printed Tanks

These green jeans have been on repeat lately! A lucky opshop find two years ago, they were just $5. I've been so close to 30 wears with them, and thanks to my frequent rewearing this spring I have a 30 wears post coming up next week with them!

Wore them very simply for breezy spring days with printed tanks, sneakers and little Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bags.

What I wore:

animal print tank with green skinny jeans and sneakers, rebecca minkoff mini mac bag spring outfit | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC wih green jeans | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | green skinny jeans and animal print tank with sneakers at lake spring outfit


Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Top: Jeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

While I've shared outfits with these sneakers before on the blog, this was the first time I wore them out. I wanted to try a sporty kind of look but I don't really have a sporty wardrobe! Decided to go with the printed tank, the green jeans for a bit of colour and my little Rebecca Minkoff silver crossbody bag as it goes with everything!

It was threatening to rain and a pretty overcast morning, and a little windy, but we took a chance after school drop off and went to my fave trail to test out my new shoes properly. Luckily it didn't rain, and we had the whole place to ourselves! Usually even though we don't see other people due to the nature of the trail we see a car or two in the carpark, but not a single other person was there. It was wonderfully relaxing! My shoes held up pretty well too, I'm glad I replaced my old ones with these, although I hope my knee injury continues to heal so I can get back to regular shoes more often and don't need to wear these as much!






What I wore:

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly, despite wearing stripes with these green skinny jeans a lot, I hadn't worn this striped tank with them before! I was sure I had, but looking back on the blog I can see I haven't! It's a really easy pairing, colourful jeans and a printed tank, just the same as the outfit above, but the different print changes it up a little. Was very comfortable for the school run and working from home on another breezy day.

Picked a neutral bag, this little tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag that hadn't been worn in a while. And to match the white tank I went with my white converse All Stars. Such a good combination, and one I've worn before, I like the matchy-matchy of the tank and shoes together.


How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank - in any print - is an easy choice with a colourful pair of jeans. It works well for spring and is easy to layer up a little with a cardigan or denim jacket in the cooler weather.

Weekday Wear Link Up! Stripe Tee Dresses, Converse, and Pink Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two very similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, even though I wore them a week apart! Pairing striped tee dresses with Converse, pink Rebecca Minkoff bags and statement necklaces for easy working from home and school run style.

What I wore:

Kmart white striped tee dress Converse Chucks neon pink mini MAc bag statement necklace thrifted style | awayfromblue

navy white striped tee dress  Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | working from home outfit stripe tee dress bold accessories statement necklace neon pink bag

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace (new purchase)
Dress: thrifted Kmart white and navy long sleeve stripe tee dress (new purchase)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Was excited to wear this dress for the first time, and a slightly cooler spring day was the perfect opportunity! I'd just bought it at the opshop the week before for $1. The necklace was thrifted in the same trip for $2 as well and they work really nicely together. The Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was a preloved eBay find at just $29.75 so that leaves the Converse shoes as the most expensive piece in my outfit! I bought them over a decade ago though so don't remember exactly how much they cost.

The striped dress was so stretchy and comfortable for a day of working from home and doing the school run - and it looked nice and presentable for a zoom call too!

DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This navy striped tee dress is the reason I knew I had to buy the white striped tee dress! I really like this one and while it's a thicker fabric and so worn more on cooler days it's a firm favourite of mine. Really similar to the white one above too! Just a different hem and shorter sleeves, and of course a darker colour.

I accessorised this in a very similar way, with a pink Rebecca Minkoff bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody this time, and another statement necklace. Again this was a work from home outfit, as well as doing the school run and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Another comfortable outfit for sitting at my desk all day working after running around dropping the kids to school.


How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee dress is a classic and comfortable option! For days with the kids, pick one with a longer hem like the white one in the first outfit, or a dipped hem at the back like the second one. Because stripes go with everything you can add some fun statement accessories like a bright pink bag or a layered necklace.

Spring Outfits: Skinny Jeans, Converse and 3/4 Sleeve tops

Making the most of Brisbane's spring weather and starting to leave the layers behind! Before it heats up too much I reach frequently for my skinny jeans and Converse. It was nice to leave the scarves and extra layers behind on these warmer days, although I did need to add a denim jacket on a particularly windy spring day!

Both of these outfits feature a bright statement piece too.

What I wore:

pink leopard print jeans with  Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram  | pink and blue skinny leopard print jeans outfit with wrap top matching accessories

Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: Portmans pink leopard print skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I haven't worn these fun pink leopard print jeans in over a year! I'm trying to stop passing over "special" things in my wardrobe and just wear them anyway, even if I do feel a little overdressed. We didn't have much on this day, the school run and a little walk around the neighbourhood with my youngest while my eldest was at school, but I felt these jeans were overdue a wear!

They do make me happy each time I wear them, and I have worn them with this wrap top before. They look so good with blue! As it was a little windier than expected and threatening rain I added the denim jacket on top - the rolled up sleeves were the perfect length with this 3/4 sleeve wrap top.

The accessories were matchy-matchy too with the blue bag matching the blue wrap top and denim jacket, and the pink and gold necklace matching the leopard print jeans and the gold hardware on the bag! Really liked this outfit, even if it felt a little overdressed in the playground!

Dress: Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold
Pants: 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:

Again I wore my Converse and skinny jeans, this classic neutral grey pair this time. The Converse were probably a mistake though, after the school run the little one and I headed off to check out a new trail and while much shorter than I can manage, the ground was very uneven and rough which was a lot of pressure for my injured knee. Probably should have worn my ugly but supportive walking shoes instead! And should have worn some mozzie repellent too, we both got bitten like crazy!

Did like the way the Converse looked with this outfit though, and the grey skinny jeans with the black and white Chucks were great neutrals to let the marigold orange top pop. I like the way the skinny jeans balance out all the extra soft, cosy and slouchy volume of the dolman top.

To add just a little bit more colour I wore my green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag with this - it really pops against the orange top!



How You Can Wear It:
Skinny jeans and Converse is a mum staple! For something a little different you can try introducing a statement piece, like printed jeans or a bright citrus top.
