Red And Blue Winter Jeans Outfits With Striped Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

Red and blue is a colour combination that's a frequent go-to for me. In winter it makes layering easy! I added touches of red to these black tee and jeans outfits with a red item of clothing and a little red striped bag, and then a blue scarf for extra warmth and colour. Simple, colourful and quick outfits to pull together for the school run!

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe with red cardigan | away from the blue


Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Jeans and a tee has been a staple outfit for me lately! I thought I'd give these skinny jeans a wear, as I hadn't worn them yet this winter. With the black tee it was a bit of a dull monochrome outfit so I added extra colours with my layers. This red waterfall cardigan was a nice compliment with the red striped Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, and I really like how the red works with the cobalt blue of the scarf! It's a fun combination.

Wore this for the school run and a few errands. It was a bit chilly in the morning but had warmed up a lot by the afternoon, I contemplated taking my scarf off a few times.

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Scarf: Target Simone woven scarf in navy foil stars
Tee: Jeanswest black scoop neck tee
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Again, a black tee outfit with jeans, a touch of red and a blue scarf. I like pairing this denim jacket with the red skinny jeans - two completely different colours of denim is my fave way to do double denim! These jeans will be featuring in a 30 wears post soon too, as I've now worn them 30 times!

This scarf was definitely overdue a wear - it still had the tags on from when I got it for Christmas! So wrong that it hasn't been worn yet, it's beautiful. As I had the denim jacket on top keeping me warm I didn't need an overly thick scarf and this navy one with silver foil stars was perfect! I liked the way the navy went with the red jeans and black tee too.

I think the stars and stripes were far enough apart that this didn't look like an American 4th July outfit either! Had a busy morning after the school run, looking for the finishing touches for a costume for my son at the nearest Westfield. I haven't been in a shopping centre for a few months, although I know it's been open through iso. I felt a bit uncomfortable with everyone getting so close and not distancing, but thankfully we quickly found what I needed and didn't spend a lot of time there!


How You Can Wear It:
Red and blue is a colour combination that really works, no matter what shade of blue you wear. The red cardigan looks great with the cobalt blue scarf, and the red skinny jeans work with the pale blue denim jacket as well as the navy scarf.

Blue Knits and Colourful Skinny Jeans Outfits | Weekday Wear Link Up

Back when we had the icy cold blast of winter in May for a quick end to autumn, I realised I was going to have to get my winter knits out sooner than planned! While I enjoyed the opportunity to bundle up warmly with knits and scarves, I still wanted to be bright and colourful, so I paired my blue knits with some bright skinny jeans.

What I wore:

blue and magenta pink skinny jeans knit jumper outfit with striped scarf school run winter | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag with pink sass bide skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Insgrama | blue and pink skinny jeans knit jumper striped scarf colourful winter school run outfit
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Dress: thrifted blue Mossman knit jumper
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This outfit was one of those rare ones that looked great in photos but was a bit of a pain to wear. This asymmetrical cropped knit is an opshop find and a beautiful shade of blue and it works so well over dresses. But as it's been ignored over the warmer months I completely forgot that it does ride up a little when it's worn. Not too bad when you're wearing high waisted jeans with it, but it leads to a tricky situation if you're wearing low waisted jeans like this. Especially low rise ones like these Sass and Bide ones. 😂 Thankfully I had a tank layered underneath which kept things covered up, even after the walk to school and wearing my son's backpack lead to the jumper riding up so much!

Difficulty in keeping this outfit in place aside I really did like the colours! I thought the pink striped scarf worked wonderfully with the magenta skinny jeans and I felt so happy in this outfit that morning. Less so after the school drop off though!




What I wore:

Scarf: Mickey Mouse printed scarf from Disneyland Paris
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

It was a bit of a warmer day when I wore this, the weather starting to return to more normal temperatures. I ended up taking this scarf off for the afternoon school run. It was helpful in the morning though with the school drop off, especially when it got cloudy. I couldn't resist adding it to the outfit, with the blue knit and the red skinny jeans the navy and red Mickey Mouse print was a fun matchy-matchy pairing. I really enjoyed wearing this. This slouchy knit, also an opshop find, was a lot better behaved than the first one I wore and it didn't ride up at all.


Blue Knits Under $50:


How You Can Wear It:

A blue knit is a fun touch of colour for your winter wardrobe, and it works perfectly paired with brights like red and pink! It's a nice way to make a standard jeans and jumper outfit a little more interesting, by adding some colour.

Maxi Skirts and Tees With Scarves and Mustard Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Bag

Easy mum style for breezy spring days with v-neck tees and printed maxi skirts. Accessorised with some colourful scarves and my adorable mustard yellow Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag.

What I wore:

navy skirt with Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instgagram | brisbane spring mum style mustard tee navy maxi skirt fashion scarf girl print mix
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl navy Geo print tassel scarf
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

I really like blue and yellow together so I knew I should wear this navy striped maxi skirt with the mustard tee. I couldn't resist going a little matchy-matchy with the accessories too, with my mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag matching the tee and navy scarf matching the skirt. Even if the mustard bag isn't quite the same colour as the tee, it is such a fun combo and one I've worn before.

It was a warmer spring day but a bit breezy, especially right on the bay where we spent the morning at the playground, after quickly stopping off at opshop to drop off some stuff. Of course I ended up browsing after donating and picked up a few things for the boys too! I thought the mixed geometric print of the scarf was a fun print mix with the striped skirt, and loved the combination.

Of course the location is the best part though! I couldn't believe my luck stumbling across this beautiful jacaranda tree. Even if the wind made it tricky to get a good pic, and baby boy had a bit of fun running around in the background 😂 The jacaranda trees are so beautiful and worth documenting though - they blossom every spring in Brisbane and are so colourful!


Last worn: mustard tee, geometric print scarf, striped maxi skirt, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

ScarfJeanswest Lucille golden yellow scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Again with the mustard! It is my favourite shade of yellow. The lovely boho print on this red maxi skirt has a little touch of yellow in it so the mustard bag was an obvious choice, and with the bold red and yellow together I thought a plain white tee was the best. It made it through a trip to the park with the kids and dogs, a haircut, and going out for lunch with my sister without getting a stain so I was pretty happy! I wasn't as lucky last time I wore it...

Again it was a windy start to the morning so I added a scarf, and thought this mustard one was such a bright pop with the red skirt. Just like the tee in the outfit above, it's a different shade from the bag but I thought it complimented it nicely.

How You Can Wear It:

A printed maxi skirt is a fun piece to wear in warmer weather - and paired with a plain tee it makes for an easy outfit. You can add further colour and print to your outfit with accessories too, like I have with the scarves and the little mustard bag.

Two Ways To Wear: Asymmetrical Striped Maxi Skirt With Little Red Bags

While this is the first time this maxi skirt is appearing on the blog, it's also the last time you'll see it! I picked it up as part of my "fill a bag of clothes for $5" opshop sale haul. A great thrift find, it was new with tags, a classic black maxi skirt with some fun features making it stand out. It's got a high-low hem and it's asymmetrical so the sides are longer. I really liked it as I twirled around in the little opshop change room and so into the bag it went.

Each time I've worn it though, the fun features made it a little annoying. When you divide the $5 by all the items I got it works out to around 63 cents so I'm glad I got some wears of it but hopefully now it's donated back, someone more graceful or taller will enjoy it!

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red with striped maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

Tee: thrifted Emerson navy slouchy tee
Skirt: thrifted Kmart black and grey knitted asymmetric maxi skirt in shadow
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! The striped scarf was a fun combination with the striped skirt, and the red accessories were a bold pop against the navy and black. The little red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag  matched the red stripes in the skirt nicely.

The skirt was so good to wear in the playground on a hot day, nice and cool as it caught the breeze. It was only when we stopped on the way home to get groceries and the long side of the skirt kept billowing around and getting caught in the wheels of the trolley that I regretted my outfit choice! I contemplated getting the skirt altered so it was shorter, but I tend to wait until I have a pile of alterations to do at once as it's more cost effective (there's a lady I know that does everything at once and charges per hour). I didn't want to leave this skirt sitting unloved waiting around for me to build up a backlog of pieces to alter, so decided to give it one more try and if it didn't work, to donate it back.


Last worn: navy tee, striped scarf, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff studded saddle bag. First time I've worn the skirt on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

awayfromblue Instagram | statement necklace and burgundy tee with striped maxi skirt

TeeZalora Basics maroon stepped t-shirt
Skirt: thrifted Kmart black and grey knitted asymmetric maxi skirt in shadow
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This outfit was the final straw for this beautiful but impractical skirt. I wasn't feeling well but powered through with swim lessons and an important appointment, so I threw on this easy and comfortable outfit. The slouchy burgundy tee was a nice casual option with the skirt. I did try tuck it in at first, but it wouldn't stay in place and I decided I preferred the long line of it untucked. For a little extra touch of colour with the black stripes I picked another red bag, my little Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote. It was a nice combination with the burgundy and black, and I've worn this red bag with burgundy before.

But the thongs (flip flops) were not a good choice with this skirt! After the longer edges of the hem getting caught between my feet and the sole and standing on the hem one too many times I resolved that I'd just donate this skirt back to the opshop. Hopefully the next person to pick it up will be a little less clumsy or a little taller and have less issues with the longer side hems!

Instead of a scarf I wore a statement necklace with this outfit, this fun flat bead one is one I recently thrifted.


Last worn: burgundy tunic, striped maxi skirt (above), Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote. First time I've worn the necklace as it's a recent purchase.

Striped Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Even though I've donated this skirt back, I still have a few striped maxi skirts in my wardrobe and think they are a staple for mum-life! A striped maxi skirt looks great with a basic block-colour tee. You can add some extra contrasting colour with your accessories, or even try another print like I have with the striped scarf in the first outfit.

3 Ways To Wear a Ribbon Scarf (and a Giveaway!)

A special giveaway today! You know I love my scarves so I was very happy when Liberty contacted me to offer me one of her ribbon scarves. I picked the pink one but all are beautiful! Despite my large scarf collection, I've never tried a ribbon scarf before, and I really liked this one.

With help from Shelbee and Liberty, I'm sharing 3 ways you can wear a ribbon scarf, plus how you can win one of your own! There are 3 to giveaway, one for each blog!


What I wore:

SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I wore this back in September and a longer sleeved top with a scarf and tights may have been a bit overkill for spring (especially with the higher than average temperatures in Brisbane!) but it was my first day back at work after being sick and I wanted to be cosy and warm.

With the neutral black henley top, ballet flats and grey pencil skirt, I used my accessories to add a little colour. This magenta Rebecca Minkoff quilted Edie bag goes so well with the different shades of pink in the ribbon scarf. The scarf kept me cosy and made me smile through the day with the bright colour.

Exactly what you need when starting to feel better - something comfortable to wear and some colourful accessories to make you smile!


Last worn: black henley, grey pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

I like how Shelbee matched the autumnal colours in her ribbon scarf with her outfit, the earrings are the perfect match and the animal print shirt compliments the scarf so well. Such a great neutral outfit! See more of Shelbee's outfit on her blog.




Liberty is wearing the beautiful neutral brown ribbon scarf with the cutest teal dress! As it's autumn for her she's layered up a little to keep cosy.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Maxi Skirts With Printed Scarves and Slouchy Tees, Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag

Sharing some casual outfits I wore through the week for today's Weekday Wear Linkup!

You know I love my maxi skirts, especially striped ones! It's fun to introduce another print to a striped skirt by adding a statement scarf, especially if you're wearing a basic block colour tee. Such a simple yet colourful way to dress for spring.

What I wore:

monochrome grey tunic and pinstripe maxi skirt playground outfit with bright striped scarf | awayfromblue

pinstripe maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

monochrome grey pinstripe maxi skirt tassel scarf pink rebecca minkoff darren bag spring playground style
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Top: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

I loved this outfit so much! The maxi skirt is a delicate pinstripe so it looks more grey in pics, but I feel in person you can see the navy pinstripe a bit better (and in the bag closeup shot). I thought it would be fun to match the stripes on the skirt with a striped scarf, and this one added a great touch of colour to the grey outfit. I really like pink and grey together, so wore my Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag to add a little more pink (and to match the blush stripes in the scarf nicely).

A simple and comfortable outfit for a quiet Friday with the kids - we went to the playground in the morning, picked up a few groceries on the way home, and then did some baking. I made a savoury pancake that I used to make for the boys when they were little. They each took one bite and decided they didn't like it anymore, ha! Oh well!

Skirt: thrifted Cotton On navy and grey striped maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

A bit of an early morning photoshoot! I set my alarm a little earlier than the boys get up to have some quiet time to myself each morning - I read my bible, do a little bit of blog work and then get them up and get their breakfast before we all get dressed for the day. When I woke up on this Monday morning and saw the fog, I decided instead of relaxing to get up, get dressed, and go out to snap some photos.

I went out on the street to get a better pic of the fog, and passed one of my neighbours. Luckily, it's easy to explain why you're carting a camera and tripod around when the streets are so foggy - he was happy with my "taking pictures of the fog!" explanation and it was easy to move a little further down the street and be hidden by the fog so he couldn't see, ha! But I think I'll stick to backyard photos!

I'd planned to wear this navy tee as I knew it would match so nicely with the navy stripes in the maxi skirt, but I did have to add the denim jacket as I went out the door as it was a little chilly at 6am, even with the big bright scarf. I thought the navy and pink combo was a fun one, even though the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag doesn't match the pale pink diamonds on the scarf exactly it was a nice combination. I ended up taking the scarf and denim jacket off later in the day when out with the boys as it warmed up so nicely!


Last worn: denim jacket, pink diamond scarf, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag (above). First time I've posted the navy tee and striped maxi skirt on the blog as they are recent purchases.

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.
