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.

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.

Had a quiet morning at home with friends - we hosted Church Online at our place for a change. It's nice having the space to be able to do things like that in our new house!


Last worn: raspberry tee, blue floral maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC bag. It's the first time I've worn the necklace as it was a Christmas present.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

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!

Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




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.

Black Maxi Skirts And Printed Tanks With Matching Bags and Necklaces

Summer Christmas parties are easy to dress for when I stick to a simple outfit formula like I have here. A printed tank, black maxi skirt and a matching bag and necklace in festive colours works well, never over or under dressed! While I wore these back in December for a couple of Christmas parties, they are not so festive that they couldn't be worn other times of the year!

What I wore:

colourful mixed print tank with green necklace and rebecca minkoff mini 5 zip crossbody bag black maxi skirt | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
SkirtJeanswest Luxe jersey maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag (get 20% off with code "REAL")

Why I wore it:

I had this tank in mind for an upcoming Christmas party as I thought the red in the print would look so festive with green accessories! I really liked the way this outfit turned out. the matching necklace and Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag always look good together and with a subtle touch of red in the mixed print tank were a big festive touch. The black drawstring maxi skirt was a good base with all of the colour too!

It was a hot day with a big storm in the afternoon so I was thankful for the slits in the sides of this maxi skirt, kept me cool as we ran around running errands and getting some food to take to the party.

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I'd planned to wear a green necklace with this outfit to look really festive for our final Christmas party of the season but wasn't sure it worked with the neckline of this fern print tank when I put it on. I didn't want to wear the green necklace above again, although I thought it would work, as it had been getting a lot of wear over December!

I decided to go matchy-matchy with the red necklace, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag and red statement necklace. Even the gold leaf cuff matched the gold hardware on the bag and the leaf print on the tank.

Again we had a busy morning before the party but spent some time with friends in the playground before it got too hot. The party was really fun too and worth the wait being the last one of December!

How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a fun option for a Christmas party, especially if you stick to festive colours like red or green. They are things you can easily wear year round too, and with all the colour and print a black maxi skirt is a good pairing.

Casual Summer Mum Style: V-Neck Tees and Striped Maxi Skirts

Happy new year! Kicking off the new year with how I intend to continue, in casual and comfortable mum style (even if I wore these back in December!). Two simple mum outfits for summer days with the kids - pairing some colourful v-neck tees with striped maxi skirts for easy outfits on hot days!

What I wore:

mustard tee with navy stripe maxi skirt rebecca minkoff mab bag summer mum style | awayfromblue

navy grey stripe maxi skirt with  Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | summer mum playground outfit striped maxi skirt mustard tee rebecca minkoff mab camera bag
NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Cotton On navy and grey striped maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really like yellow and blue together, and I've worn this mustard tee with another navy striped maxi skirt recently. I love stripes! Thought it was a nice colourful outfit choice for a day with the boys - stopping at the park for a bit of a play before the heat sent us home again!

We spent the afternoon wrapping a few Christmas pressies and chilling in the aircon. It was such a hot day, skirt and a tee was the only thing I felt like wearing. I like how easily a maxi skirt works at the playground too, you don't need to worry about the length when running around with the kids or pushing them on the swings!

With the bright mustard yellow and nay blue, thought that this neutral tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag was a good choice.


Last worn: mustard tee, beaded necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Other ways to wearmustard tee worn two ways, navy stripe maxi skirt and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and jeans.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: thrifted pinstripe maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another v-neck tee and maxi skirt outfit! Again, wearing a striped skirt although this pinstripe doesn't show up well in pics and the skirt just looks grey. I really liked the lilac tee with it, it's nice with the grey.

Added a little extra colour to my outfit with this blush tassel necklace, I like pink and purple together too and I felt it dressed up my casual outfit a little more for church and then lunch and an afternoon shopping with my mum. Was so good to spend time together, even if it was a little crazy trying to get a car park as it was December! Was so nice getting time to decorate the house later too, it was our first Christmas in our new house so I was very excited and kept wanting to buy more decorations.

I think the studded sandals helped dress up this outfit a little more too, as I'd just worn my casual Havaianas in the first outfit. Although not quite as colourful as the first outfit, I thought the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag was a good companion with this outfit too - it goes with everything!

How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt is a great piece to have in your mum wardrobe! The perfect length for running around with and bending down to toddlers all day, and still looks and feels a little more pulled together to go to church or a lunch date! Worn with a simple colourful tee it's an easy outfit choice for a hot summer day.

Two Ways To Wear A Black Pencil Skirt: Weekday Wear Linkup

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two different ways to wear a black pencil skirt - for the office and for mum life.

This linkup post will be up a little longer than normal as I won't have my usual post on Wednesday as it will be Christmas day. I'll be back posting as usual on the 27th December with some boxing day sales.

What I wore:

metallic tank statement necklace tweed blazer black pencil skirt in the office with purple bag way to wear | awayfromblue

office outfit with Balenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | summer office outfit with metallic tank and boucle blazer purple balenciaga work bag

TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

I was a little annoyed with this outfit! I love the metallic tank for a subtle bit of shimmer and the tweed blazer dresses it up nicely and covers my shoulders for the office. The beaded statement necklace was a bit of matchy-matchy with the silver, white and turquoise beads. It got broken and hastily repaired out at dinner one night so it's now a strictly worn without the kids piece. But it went and broke on me while I was in a meeting. A virtual meeting at my desk thankfully but I was still a bit frustrated!

Even with the turquoise in the necklace I thought this outfit needed a little more colour so went with the purple Balenciaga work bag, and added even more interest with the leopard print flats. I did really like this outfit until the necklace annoyed me!


Last worn: tweed blazer, turquoise beaded necklace, metallic tank, black pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga purple work bag.

TankJeanswest Maji metallic tank in soft green and silver (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
Shoes:  Wittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Rushed out of the office early to get home and changed before heading out with family for an important event. Decided to keep the outfit base the same, with the same metallic tank and black pencil skirt, but swapped the ballet flats for these studded sandals, and the blazer for a more casual kimono. It's not the first time I've worn this kimono with a pencil skirt, I enjoyed it last time I wore that combination too.

Swapped the accessories out for a more kid-friendly necklace, and a cute little red bag to add some extra colour to my outfit.

Simple and quick outfit for a night out with family, followed by dinner at our place before putting two very tired kids to bed very late!


Last worn: navy printed kimono, blue beaded necklace, metallic silver tank (above), black pencil skirt (above), studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono and skinny jeans, metallic silver tank and maxi skirt, black pencil skirt over a dress, studded sandals and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote and teal dress.

Perfect for pregnancynavy printed kimono at 39 weeks, black pencil skirt in first trimester, studded sandals in third trimester.



Black Pencil Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pencil skirt is a wardrobe staple, and it's easy to layer it up with a blazer to fit a formal work environment. You can dress it down by changing the outerwear again - pick something more casual like a kimono for an easy outfit that's suitable for a hot summer night.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed A-Line Skirts and Tees In The Office

Working in a business casual office that's more on the casual side than the business side of dressing means tees are perfectly acceptable in the office. I do try dress them up a little each time I wear them, by wearing a pretty skirt like these or adding a blazer or statement necklace.

What I wore:

autumnal coloured outfit with mulberry heritage bayswater tote bag | away from the blue

SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

This is a very autumnal toned outfit for summer! I thought I'd let the skirt stand out as the star and pair it with neutrals. This dark olive tee is so comfortable and slouchy, and even though it's a very different shade of green from the skirt I thought it went nicely with it. The black blazer and tan ballet flats and Mulberry Bayswater were nice neutral accessories to wear, but I did add a little extra interest with the crystal statement necklace so the outfit didn't feel too dark.

It was a very busy day in the office, and even if my big meeting with a manager was rescheduled, and I didn't need the blazer, I still felt suitably dressed for the day.

Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I really don't know why I don't wear this skirt more often! It's such a fun piece and I love yellow! Every time I wear it it gets compliments, it's far too pretty to hide away in my wardrobe.

It's the first time I've worn this black tee with it but I do like wearing it with black tops - picking a colour out of the print is such an easy way to pull an outfit together when you're wearing something printed.

Wasn't sure if this necklace was a bit much given the skirt is already a bit of a statement, but I liked the combination when I tried it on that morning so decided to stick with it. The skirt and necklace always get a lot of compliments when I wear them, even more this time around I wore them both together!

The grey blazer and metallic silver shoes were a little bit of matchy-matchy with the outfit too. The big meeting with the manger was rescheduled to this day so the blazer again made me feel suitably dressed.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Wrap Tops and Pencil Skirts With Balenciaga Day Bags

For today's weekday wear I'm wearing some wrap tops that haven't been worn in a while with pencil skirts and statement necklaces for an easy office outfit.

What I wore:

navy wrap top with statement necklace and grey jersey pencil skirt, printed flats summer office outfit | awayfromblue

Balenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete | awayfromtheblue

TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this navy wrap top with a grey pencil skirt, I really like navy and grey together! To change it up a little I added some different accessories. This green and red beaded statement necklace is a firm fave and while I do wear it at other times through the year it seems so perfectly festive for December, being so close to Christmas! I wasn't sure if the leopard print flats would be too much with this given the necklace was already enough of a statement, but I ended up really liking it when I tried it.

The tempete Balenciaga day bag is the perfect mix of blue and grey so seemed like the obvious choice to wear with this 💙


Last worn: navy wrap top, green and red necklace, grey jersey pencil skirt, leopard print flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

Followed the same blue and grey colour scheme as the first outfit for this one, just with a single brighter colour in my accessories. I thought the basic grey wrap top was a nice neutral to pair with the jacquard pencil skirt and I really like the way the magenta pops against it!

This recently thrifted necklace was one I couldn't pass by in the opshop when I was in looking for Christmas books for our advent calendar. I knew it would be the perfect match with this magenta Balenciaga day bag and I love the way they look together!


Last worn: grey wrap top, jacquard pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag. First time I've worn the necklace as it was a recent purchase.

Wrap Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple wrap top is a nice twist on a basic and works well in the office when you need to be a little more dressed up. They are great with pencil skirts! I bought both of these wrap tops for easy breastfeeding as they have a snap to hold them in place. It makes them simple to wear at work as they don't gape open. You could always layer a tank underneath if your top doesn't have a modesty snap.

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:

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.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan










What I wore:

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.


Last worn: mustard scarf, white tee, red printed maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearmustard scarf and little black dress, white tee and jeans, red printed maxi skirt and band teeRebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag and denim shorts

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.
