Peplum Tops Bright Skinny Jeans And Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

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

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

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

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

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

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

Why I wore it:

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

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

Peplum Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

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

Waterfall Cardigans, Printed Shorts And V-Neck Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

It's been a very hot spring so far in Brisbane but the mornings and evenings started out a little cooler, so I decided to add some cardigans to my shorts and tee outfits to keep me warm. Even if I did end up taking both cardigans off by lunchtime 😂

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I really like pink and purple together and I like how this purpley-magenta cardigan works so nicely with the neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. They were fun accessories with the monochromatic grey tee and black printed shirt too. The cardigan became much too hot halfway round the trail the kids were biking and scooting around so I quickly took it off. Had been perfect in the colder start to the day though.

Nice quiet day with the kids, shorts and tee and Converse was a great outfit, even if the cardigan didn't stay on long.

Why I wore it:

This navy cardigan didn't stay on long at all! It had seemed like a nice idea in the morning but I quickly realised during swimming lessons that it was far too hot for it, and left it in the car!

I did like the way the navy cardigan worked so well with the navy printed shorts and the bright mustard tee, just was a much warmer day than I anticipated! I like mustard and navy together, and although the yellow in the print on the shorts is lemon I think the mustard tee paired nice with it and was a fun pop of colour with the navy. I went a little matchy-matchy with my accessories, wearing my metallic silver mini MAC bag and also my glittery silver sneakers.

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:
In spring and autumn, cardigans are great layers to add for the cooler mornings and evenings and aren't too bulky to pop in a bag if you take them off during the day. You can try wearing your cardigans with printed shorts when you know the day is going to heat up, using the cardigan to add more colour like I did in the first outfit, or matching the print in the shorts like I did in the second outfit.

Graphic Tees and Floral Kimonos With Denim For Spring

Continuing to enjoy the milder spring weather in Brisbane and wearing two pretty floral kimonos. Because florals are perfect for spring! Keeping things simple, as always, I wore the kimonos with denim, but decided to wear graphic tees instead of plain ones for something a little different.

What I wore:

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

Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

While it was a bit of a cooler spring day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this long sleeved kimono. It's such a fun bright magenta, with a hint of orange and blue in the floral print. It really pops with the Nobody Denim black skinny jeans, and the Edinburgh graphic tee I picked up on our Europe trip earlier this year matched the blue in the print nicely. I couldn't resist adding a little extra colour with my bag though! this peachy Rebecca Minkoff small love bag wouldn't normally be my first choice with magenta but with the orange in the flowers on the print I decided to give it a go and I really loved this combination!

Nice and comfortable outfit for church in the morning before a big family dinner at my parents in the afternoon.


Last worn: floral kimono, navy tassel earrings, Edinburgh graphic tee, Nobody Denim skinny jeans, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag.

Other ways to wear: floral kimono and shorts, Edinburgh graphic tee and leather jacket, Nobody Denim skinny jeans and leopard print, silver ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag and maxi dress.

Perfect for pregnancy: silver ballet flats in third trimester.

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This was a much warmer spring day, so I had to get my shorts out! I wore this back in September, the first month of spring, but I wasn't expecting to need my shorts so early in the season!

Unfortunately, I had a bunch of errands to run, but the boys were very patient and we headed to the park as soon as we were done. The heat ended up driving us home from the playground though, it was over 30 degrees (86 F). More like summer than spring!

As I knew we would be rushing about in the morning before heading to the sandy playground I picked my comfortable Converse to wear, they look so good with denim! Again I picked a graphic tee to wear with the floral kimono, I thought this navy one was a good combo with the green floral, even if the graphic print is quite large. Decided the silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was the best accessory, as the graphic tee and the floral printed kimono meant I didn't want a necklace. This metallic silver goes with everything!

Last worn: green floral kimono, navy graphic tee, Bermuda denim shorts, white Converse, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver Mini MAC bag.

Perfect for pregnancy: navy graphic tee in third trimester, white Converse in second trimester, Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver Mini MAC bag in third trimester.


Floral Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A floral kimono is a fun topper to a casual denim and tee outfit. For something a little different, swap out a basic tee for one with a graphic design on it! You can match the graphic print to a colour in the kimono like the first outfit, or pick a contrasting colour like in the second outfit.

Matching Bags and Scarves With Grey Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts For Spring

Enjoying wearing some of my recnt(ish!) purchases to create some casual and comfortable spring outfits. I love these striped maxi skirts I thrifted back in August and the scarves and bags add the perfect pop of colour for spring.

You might know from reading my blog I love my bright handbags, and I have shared various ways to match them to my outfits before (matching to shoes, matching tees, matching necklaces, etc). Today I'm keeping it simple and matching the accessories together by picking scarves and bags that are similar shades.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram vertical striped maxi skirt with grey tee mustard yellow accessories matching scarf and bag
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard (new purchase)
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I was hopeful that this mustard crinkle scarf would pair nicely with my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and was so pleased to see they look great together! While not the exact same shade I think they compliment each other nicely, and were a fun combo with the neutral outfit. As it was a cooler morning, I added the denim jacket to the slouchy grey tee and vertical striped maxi skirt. We had church in the morning too, which is often a little colder with the aircon so the denim jacket was a good choice. Even if I did take it off after church in the heat of the day.

Even though the bag has silver hardware, I thought the gold mouse flats went nicely with the mustard accessories - and they are such fun shoes to wear!


Last worn: denim jacket, mustard crinkle scarf, grey tunic, gold mouse flats, mustard micro Regan bag. First time I've worn the vertical striped maxi skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another simple grey tee and striped maxi skirt with some colourful accessories! This beautiful diamond print scarf has so many colours in it, but I knew I wanted to try wearing it with the equally bright neon pink mini MAC bag. I really liked the two pieces together, and they were the perfect touch with the outfit. The pinstripe maxi skirt always seems so grey in pics, even though it's a fine navy pinstripe. This paired with the darker grey v-neck tee made it a bit monochrome, so the pink was fun to break up the grey a bit!

Simple and colourful outfit for a day with the boys - we spent some time at the playground, library, and a quick visit to our old house, so a pretty busy day.


Last worn: grey tee, black ballet flats, neon pink mini MAC bag. First time I've worn the diamond print scarf and maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple, and looks great with a striped maxi skirt. To add some colour to the neutrals, you can go for bright and bold scarves, with matching bags to make your outfit even more colourful. Perfect for spring.

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.

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.

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.

White Tees, Colourful Jeans, Cardigans and Printed Scarves

Two simple outfits for mornings at the park - bright denim, white tees, cosy scarves and cardigans with ankle boots and my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. Easy mum style!

What I wore:

ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

When I was unpacking my winter stuff and saw this scarf, I instantly thought of putting together this outfit. I wore it recently with a tee dress, and was excited to take the chance to wear it with the jeans! I love blue and green together and knew that the white tee would be the perfect base with the green and blue.

It was such a good outfit for a playdate in the park too, with some other parents I hadn't met before. Telling someone to look out for the green jeans works so well at a busy playground! It was nice to meet the mums and dads for the first time, and everyone commented on the jeans being a good idea as they stood out! Although the Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine Mini MAC bag is a completely different shade from the emerald green jeans I thought they went together really nicely.

It turned into a really warm day in the sun as the kids played together so I ended up taking my cardigan off. It had been a nice neutral topper for the outfit but was much too warm in the middle of the day, especially with the ankle boots and blanket scarf.

TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

More colourful jeans! I wore my red pair this time, also a thrifted pair like the green ones above. It was a quieter day at the playground though - we have so many great parks around us so that it's often only a few kids in the parks on weekdays, and our favourite one is always quiet.

It's not the first time I've worn these red jeans with the navy cardigan, navy and red is a colour combination I keep coming back to! I know the red jeans would be perfect with this scarf too, it's a fun mix of colours and looks nice with the navy striped tee.

I did consider a red bag with this outfit but decided on the Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC instead as I thought the pants were red enough, and they already matched the scarf.

It was a colder day when I wore this outfit so I was thankful the boys didn't want to spend too much time at the park. A quick stop on the way home to pick up groceries and then a quiet afternoon at home.

Colourful Jeans Under $50:




How You can Wear It:

Bright denim is such a fun alternative to a classic pair of blue jeans! Still oh-so easy to wear with the skinny jeans staple of a tee, they make a really colourful outfit paired with other bright accessories or layers like a scarf, cardigan or bag.
