Olive and Grey Worn Two Ways: Skinny Jeans and Marle Knit

I thrifted this grey knit for $1 before our trip and thought it would be wonderful to bring along to keep me warm - it was certainly much too hot for the synthetic fibres in Brisbane's hot start to autumn. The time I did wear it, I wore it with my trusty olive skinny jeans. Despite having the same outfit base, olive jeans, grey knit and Converse, I changed up the scarves and outerwear to try keep the outfits different.

What I wore:

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris
Knit: Thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this for our hike in the Pentlands. We were on a mission to see a Highland Cow or two but I had to stop and take a photo with the beautiful gorse / Whin bushes halfway up the hill. Despite it threatening rain and taking two toddlers along on a 'quiet' hike to see some wild cows, we did it! I was so thrilled to find some of the herd over another crest, just after the toddlers had given up. I came back to where they were sitting having a rest and we all walked up to see these beautiful cows in person.

While the boys I kept at a safer distance, I inched closer and closer for a quick pic. My confidence levels helped greatly by the fact that the cow had seem completely disinterested in us since we saw her, and her lack of horns!

After admiring the herd and the views a bit more we headed back down the hill before the rain, to enjoy lunch at Swanston Brasserie, another place I recommend if you're in Edinburgh. The hike up the hills works up an appetite!


Last worn: camel trench, Mickey Mouse scarf, olive skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the knit on the blog as I thrifted it for this trip back in January.

Why I wore it:

No wild animals this time - although we did see some statues of them! 😂 We went for a drive out to the Kelpies at Falkirk. These beautiful statues are so very large and beautiful to see in person. We had a little ice cream then headed to the large playground to have a picnic. Which had seemed like a lovely idea the day before but I admit it was a bit windy out there in the open! Thankfully the boys were running around and having so much fun they didn't notice the cold, and I was grateful I'd packed this slightly larger leather jacket to wear as even with the grey knit underneath I was able to zip this up and stay a little warmer.

My cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf was a nice pop of colour with the neutral grey and olive, and helped keep me warm too being a wool blend!

How You Can Wear It:

Even if you're not living out of a suitcase, you can easily repeat an outfit combo you love and change it up slightly next time by picking different accessories or outerwear. Two neutrals like grey and olive work well together and you can add colourful scarves, different jackets, or even different necklaces or bags to change the outfit up each time you wear it.

Weekday Wear Link Up! Same Outfit, Different Shoes: Edinburgh Castle Outfit

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, showing one of the simplest ways to change up an outfit. Wearing the same pieces but changing the shoes to create two different outfits for two very different days in Scotland.

What I wore:

Edinburgh castle sightseeing outfit cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf monochrome jeans and tee outfit speedy bandouliere | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | what I wore to visit Edinburgh castle monochrome grey jeans and leather jacket cobalt Louis Vuitton scarf

awayfromblue Instagram | tourist hoodie jumping pic at Edinburgh castle pink sweater grey jeans ankle boots

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this outfit to go explore Edinburgh castle with the boys. If you're in Edinburgh, it's a must-see! We frequently walked up to here during our time in Scotland, as you can see from my jumping pic! It's just so photogenic on top of the castle rock. The views you get from the various points inide the castle are stunning too, you can see all over the city and on a clear day like this was you can see right across the Forth to Fife.

As it is a high point in the middle of Edinburgh it can be quite chilly with the wind, so I layered up! My trusty leather jacket with a long sleeve black tee underneath and grey skinny jeans made a great monochromatic outfit with the ankle boots. With all of the black and grey, the Louis Vuitton bleu shawl was a lovely pop of colour and being a wool blend, it helped to keep me cosy.

The boys had a fun day and were eager to tell everyone that they visited an actual castle for the rest of the trip!


Last worn: leather jacket, Louis Vuitton scarf, black tee, grey skinny jeans, ankle boots, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Views From Edinburgh Castle and the One O'Clock Gun Firing




I didn't take a lot of video as we went around the castle - too cold to have my camera out much! So it's just under 2 minutes with some of the views from the castle, the beautiful interiors and of course the firing of the famous one o'clock gun.





What I wore:

casual grey skinny jeans and tee leather jacket converse outfit louis vuitton accessories | away from the blue
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Exactly the same as the outfit above, I just switched the shoes! Instead of my ankle boots I picked Converse for a day in the park with the boys. Such an easy way to change an outfit, just swapping out and accessory, but it made such a difference. Converse are my go-to on cold park days with the boys!

Because I really liked the first outfit I kept it all the same, I love how the cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf pops against the black tee, leather jacket and grey jeans.

Grey Jeans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

If you have an outfit you love, wear it again! Everyone re-wears their favourite pieces. If you want to make it slightly different to avoid feeling like you are repeating yourself over and over, swap out an accessory. It can be as simple as changing the shoes you're wearing, or you could change the bag or scarf!

Printed Tanks And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Just like Monday's post, again I'm wearing printed tanks and colourful pants. A bit more casually this time, for my usual SAHM days with the kids.

What I wore:

red skinny jeans cheetah print tank louis vuitton neverfrull converse SAHM play centre outfit | awayfromblue

red skinny jeans with Louis Vuitton damier azur MM neverfull tote bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue | Instagram red skinny jeans converse chucks cheetah print tank LV neverfull tote
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressJeanswest 'Rowena' print tank
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Every time I think of an outfit combination with these red jeans I'm surprised when I flick through the blog archives and find I haven't worn it before! While I've never worn this printed tank and red jeans together, I really liked the combination, and it seems so obvious. It was a nice effortless outfit for a day with the boys. We headed out to a local play centre I had a soon to expire voucher for and I had a nice time at the cafe with a hot chocolate and a book while the boys played.

Of course I didn't get to enjoy the hot chocolate completely hot, there were some incidents with a smashed ear, a bruised knee and a bleeding nose... the boys had fun though despite leaving with a few injuries!


Last worn: animal print tank, turquoise tassel necklace, red skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote.

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit combination again! I picked the same turquoise tassel necklace, following the printed tank and skinny jeans outfit formula, even sticking with the same Louis Vuitton bag. I did wear sandals instead of Converse though.

This fun printed tank was a great opshop $1 bargain find, and although it has no green in it, I thought it would be fun to wear with the green skinny jeans, also an opshop find! I usually stick with neutrals when wearing these green jeans, I find green a tricky colour to wear, but I decided to be bright and colourful and pair the tank with them. I really liked the colours together!

This was another day that was supposed to be quiet but didn't quite go according to plan! The plan was to go to the library, run a few errands, have an early nap and then go see my friend in the afternoon for our coffee date that we'd had to reschedule a few times with sick kids. Thankfully I managed to get everything done, but with a couple more surprises along the way including a very late doctor's visit that meant a late dinner. One of those eventful days where everything goes wrong! At least I had fun with my friend and the boys enjoyed the library in the morning.

How You Can Wear It

A fun pair of colourful jeans can be so easy to wear! You can keep it simple and pick a neutral colourful tank to wear with them, or be bolder and introduce even more colour to your outfit with a bright tank.

Navy Tops and Green Pants: Spring SAHM Style (And Instagram Giveaway!)

I've been embracing green and blue together more often recently. It's a colour combination I only started wearing a few years ago. I decided to try it again with green pants and navy tops, this time wearing my olive jeans with navy. I really liked the combination!

What I wore:

olive jeans with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | away from the blue

Top: Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I had the vague idea for this outfit in my head, I hadn't planned it out the night before like I usually do as we were at a wedding. In the morning I was feeling slightly worse for wear after a couple of glasses of champagne and not having drunk anything alcoholic for a couple years due to pregnancy / breastfeeding! I just wanted simple and easy as there were groceries to buy and kids to amuse. I decided to wear the outfit idea I had anyway, without spending time to see if it looked good. I was pleased to find out I really liked the combination.

Was a nice easy outfit, printed tank and skinny jeans. Perfect for a quiet Sunday, or as quiet as a Sunday can be when you have two boys under 5!

It's not the first time I've worn this Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag with olive, I liked the combination of the aqua and olive together. The necklace was a nice matchy-matchy touch, even if the hardware on the necklace is gold and silver on the bag. I've worn this necklace and tank together before too so I knew I'd like the result.


Last worn: bird print tank, tassel necklace, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Why I wore it:

Another nice and simple outfit. Jeans and a tee to take the boys to the local library for music time and to let them have a play at the playground. Again, I'm wearing the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with gold pieces even though the chain strap on it is silver. I think the gold foil polka dots on the tee didn't look bad with it!

It's not the first time I've worn these green jeans with a blue top, and I've been wanting to try this particular jeans and tee outfit combination for a while. I really liked it, pleased I finally gave it a wear.


Last worn: polka dot tee, beaded necklace, green jeans, Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearpolka dot tee and maxi skirt, green jeans and grey tee, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and printed shorts.

Green Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Blue and green should be seen! It's a fun and bold colour combination to try. For something different, you can try other shades of green and blue together, like navy and olive or navy and forest green. Picking a blue top with a print is another fun way to add more interest to your outfit too.

Monochrome Jeans And Tee Outfits With Pink Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren Bag

You might have noticed this Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag popping up in quite a few posts lately, I've been loving it! Mostly I've been sticking with neutrals when wearing it.

What I wore:

grey jeans with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | pastel pink scarf and darren bag with black tee grey skinny jeans rainy day spring style

TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

While I'm trying to be more adventurous with colour, I do sometimes like to play it safe and stick with the classics. With a neutral black and grey outfit, I thought this pastel pink small Darren bag was the perfect accessory. I was pleased by how well it matched with my Fashion Scarf Girl leaf scarf as well!

It was a wet day and I was working from home so I just needed a comfortable outfit to do the daycare pickup and drop off and sit in front of my computer. Jeans and a tee were perfect for that. These ballet flats have a rubber sole too, perfect for rushing around in the rain.

While it is a simple outfit, I really liked wearing this.


Last worn: black tee, grey skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava White leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much, I wore exactly the same one again a few days later. It was a much drier start to the day, and I decided to take my new leopard print ballet flats out for a spin. Keeping them away from the mud the boys seemed to find on our morning walk was tricky, but they were mostly unscathed!

As well as the different shoes, I flipped the colours around in the outfit so it was a grey tee and black jeans, the opposite of the first outfit. Again I accessorised with the same pastel pink bag.

We had a fun morning after our walk at our ABA mother's group catch-up, then a couple of quick errands to run. For a first wear, these shoes were very comfortable. I've shared them on the blog before, although this was the first time I wore them.

How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a wardrobe staple, especially as a stay at home mum! These outfits are a great example of how you can still wear the classic combination while staying away from the blue jeans rut, with grey and black denim instead. You can also add a little colour to your jeans and tee outfit with some fun accessories. Sticking with a neutral outfit makes accessorising easy as any colour works!

V-Neck Tees, Olive Pants and Printed Scarves

For a quiet weekend with the kids, I kept things really simple with black tees, olive pants and some new printed scarves from Fashion Scarf Girl. (I'm a brand rep and receive some scarves occasionally). Perfect simple spring style for mum life.

What I wore:

TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee (new purchase)
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

This was an absolutely hilarious morning. We had the daycare class mascot to take exploring for the weekend, so decided to head to the petting zoo at Capalaba Produce. I decided I should wear my new rooster, chicken and egg print scarf. Because that would be fun to grab a pic with a bird, and we were taking the camera anyway to document the daycare toy's adventures.

I loved the outfit, was a good chance to wear two of my recent purchases, a plain black tee from Atmos & Here and my olive jeans from Jeanswest. The printed scarf was a fun touch and the black Balenciaga part time bag a nice neutral.

Attempting to get a simple photo near any birds was a bit of a fail though - any time I'd get close the boys would jump in so they could get equally close to the chicken, which lead to it inevitably running away. It was so comical, poor husband trying to take pics and hold back two over eager toddlers did not work. The boys had a great time though! Deciding we were done with attempting to document my bird chasing experience and the daycare toys adventures, we had morning tea at the cafe and then headed home before the predicted storm.

The day then took another turn, not so funny this time, when the sore stomach my son started complaining of on the way home turned out to be a rather bad tummy bug. And the outfit I had loved so much met an unfortunate end when my son proved once again how sore his stomach was in front of the doctor. Baby wipes just weren't cutting it as he missed the sick bag entirely! The walk out of the hospital and drive home was unpleasant.... thankfully just a 24 hour thing and he was quickly back to normal.

Why I wore it:

Not such an eventful day when I wore this! Hubby and I spent some one on one time with the boys, hubby tasked with documenting all the daycare mascot's adventures for the day while I took our other son out for a browse in the opshop and a long walk in the sunshine. I underestimated the humidity though on this day, about half way through our walk I was pulling off my scarf and wishing I hadn't worn socks and shoes and stuck with my trusty Havaianas instead!

I did like the extra touch of colour this navy printed scarf added to the olive and grey outfit though. And while I didn't pick up anything for myself at the opshop, it was 'fill a bag for $5' and I managed to pick up 11 pieces for the boys for just $5!

Olive Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Neutral, basic tees paired with olive pants makes an easy neutral outfit for weekends with the kids. Adding in a fun printed scarf is a great way to elevate your outfit a little, while still keeping it simple and practical for a day with kids. Just make sure to have a backup outfit nearby if you're cuddling a sick kid!
