Two Ways To Wear A Navy V-Neck Tee: Jeanswest Sophie V-Neck Tee

This navy tee is one of the ones I picked up from Jeanswest during my massive Christmas gift card shopping spree. They'd only brought out into the store that day (the sales assistant had trouble scanning it) and so it was perfect timing! While I love blue I didn't have a navy v-neck tee. So pleased I do now! It works so well with the other pieces I have in my wardrobe, and I'm wearing it two different ways below.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with monochromatic blue outfit | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
SkirtAlly Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Just knew I had to pair this navy tee with this blue maxi skirt. Something my mum got me for Christmas, this skirt has been on frequent repeat lately as it's so perfect for summer! I really liked the navy with the brighter blue of the skirt, and accessorising was so simple. The blush necklace and peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag work so well with the pink flowers in the floral print.

This was a quick and easy outfit to pull together to head over to my friends house to watch Church Online. The maxi skirt accommodated the knee brace I've been wearing when I have to drive long distances, even though she just lives 30 minutes away driving really aggravates my knee after I injured it after Christmas.

Really liked all the colours in this outfit, made my matchy-matchy self very happy, especially when I added the navy and pink Havaianas to stick with the colour scheme, haha!


Last worn: floral maxi skirt, pink beaded necklace, navy Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag. First time I've worn the navy tee as it's a recent purchase.

ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

These embroidered soft shorts are a summer fave for me and I like wearing them with blue - I added the navy tee and couldn't resist wearing this blue tie-dye kimono too, I thought all the blue went so nicely together with the olive. I added even more colour with the mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag for a bit of a contrast, and my little turquoise tassel necklace which I often wear with green.

A nice comfortable and colourful outfit for walking along the bike trail and then visiting the park with the boys. I didn't wear my knee brace, instead I put on my old but supportive New Balance sneakers to help reduce the impact on my injured knee as we walked around. The boys could scoot and cycle much faster than I could limp along, but luckily hubby was there to help and keep an eye on them if they went too far while I trailed behind, haha! It was a hot day so the kimono wasn't really needed, but it was nice to have some extra sun protection for my arms.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy v-neck tee is a great wardrobe basic to have! It's the perfect neutral. It looks good with other neutrals like olive and is a fun base for pink or yellow accessories like these Rebecca Minkoff bags.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed Dresses And Blush Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing my solution for those "I don't know what to wear to the office" days, a pretty printed dress! Both of these dresses are oldies in my wardrobe, so I tried something different with them this time and wore them with statement necklaces, and my adorable little blush Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag.

What I wore:

navy belted ikat print dress with blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag | awayfromblue

navy dress with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromblue


awayfromblue Instagram | navy ikat print belted dress with rebecca minkoff small darren bag
Necklace: thrifted black and grey floral crystal statement necklace
DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
BeltRebecca Minkoff Liv double wrap velvet belt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

I'm always surprised to see I haven't hit 30 wears with this dress yet! I bought it back in 2012 and it's been such a staple in my wardrobe, I would have thought it was one of my most worn pieces! It definitely feels like I've should have worn it more than 19 times...

This is the first time I've worn this blush bag with the dress and I really liked the combination of the navy Ikat print with the blush bag. I felt it needed a belt so picked this one to wear, even though the belt has gold hardware and the bag is silver, it was the best I had at the time and I didn't dislike the mixed metals with the belt, bag, shoes and statement necklace as much as I thought I would when I wore it!

I've been using just 3 belts for quite a while now, this one included. I boxed up the rest of my belts while pregnant and house hunting years ago and they have only just been found (we moved into our new house months ago, ha!). Despite having to throw a few of them out as pleather being stored in the Queensland heat and humidity never ends well, it flakes and peels.... I'm excited I'll have more belt choice again!


Last worn: Ikat print dress, crystal statement necklace, velvet double wrap belt, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

Why I wore it:

Another simple printed dress outfit for a busy day at work. I like the ease of this dress, just throw on and go. This time around I decided to add a bit more colour to the blush and white print with the big neon crystal statement necklace. I really liked the unexpected combination, and as always happens whenever I wear this necklace, it got a lot of compliments!

The blush Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag matches the pink in the fern print of the dress nicely, and the classic black Walnut Melbourne ballet flats match the black base of the dress. A matchy-matchy outfit that made me happy!

How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is an easy throw on and go outfit when you're not sure what to wear, and a knee length one like these is great for an office environment. You can add a little extra interest with a bold statement necklace like I have here or keep it simple and let the print on the dress be the only statement in your outfit.

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!


Last worn: striped tassel scarf, grey tunic, pinstripe maxi skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag.

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.

Striped Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped maxi skirt is a great basic for mum-life, especially when paired with a plain block colour tee. For a little extra colour and interest, you can add contrasting accessories like I have here with the pink scarves and bag. Perfect for spring!

Layering Up Sundresses With Knotted Knits In Winter

These adorable Kmart strappy tiered sundresses from the past two summers are so perfect for the summer heat and humidity in Brisbane. I've layered them up a little for autumn and spring before, but decided to take advantage of some warmer winter days to wear them with more layers! Using my go-to petite style hack of knotting a jumper over a dress to create these outfits.

What I wore:

grey marle knit knotted over kmart strappy tiered aztec print sundress in winter tall boots red bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | red rebecca minkoff micro avery bag grey marle knit knotted over tiered sundress
Knit: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This cute grey knit, a $1 opshop buy at the start of the year, is a longer length with an uneven hem. It means there is a lot of it to tie up when I want to knot it over a dress, but I think it makes the knot more of a feature. Just like last time I knotted this knit, I really liked this outfit! I think the grey knit paired so nicely with the black tiered sundress, and the tan boots were a cosy and comfortable option.

The outfit felt a little too neutral so I added the fun red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag for a touch of colour. I think it was the perfect finishing touch!

It was great to be wearing something I felt happy and comfortable in because I stopped to take these photos on the way to church, at a spot I'd been driving by for a few weeks and thinking how good it would be to take photos there. I hopped out the car, setup the tripod and then a car drove by...and another, and another. Turns out the "little side road" I'd seen actually had a very busy gym in the middle of it and it must have been near the time classes started or finished. I'm awkward enough in public when someone else is taking my photo, it felt even weirder just being there with my tripod! I couldn't pack everything back in the car quick enough, haha!


Last worn: grey knit, beaded necklace, Aztec print sundress, slouchy tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | layering knotted knit over printed tiered kmart sundress
Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Knit: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Although this outfit follows the same formula as the one above, just a more colourful version, I didn't like this one as much. I think possibly because this knit wasn't knotted as tightly and looks a bit more relaxed and slouchy. Being petite, it helps to tie it in a fixed line and have a more defined waist. It looks okay, just not as good as I imagined in my head when I thought up the outfit!

As it was a warmer day, I skipped the fleece-lined tights I'd worn above and just wore leggings and my fun sparkly Kmart glitter sneakers. I even considered going without the leggings and having bare legs, but in the shade at the playground I was glad I'd picked the leggings!

Added a little more colour to this already colourful dress by matching the blush floral print to the pink tassel necklace and Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag. The bag is one I've worn with this dress in the past, I just love the combination.


Last worn: cobalt knit, pink tassel necklace, printed tiered sundress, glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger.

Tiered Sundresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty tiered sundress isn't just for summer! You can add more warmth to a spaghetti strap dress with a cosy knit on top, tied at the waist to give your outfit a little more definition. It's a great option for a warmer winter day when you don't need a lot of extra layers.

Striped Tees and Colourful Skinny Jeans With Cross Body Bags In Winter

Winter weather means getting my fun collection of colourful denim out to enjoy! A simple striped tee and jeans outfit is easy mum style, with a cosy cardi on top for Brisbane's cold winter mornings.

What I wore:

wool maxi cardigan with green skinny jeans navy stripe tee converse LV speedy bag messy play mum style | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeAtmos&Here navy stripe v-neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I really struggled with what to wear when I pulled this outfit together! We had a messy play morning booked in for the boys, and I had some older clothes for them to wear. For me it was a little harder as I didn't want to get anything dirty 😅

Went with these green jeans as they are an opshop find and so not an expensive loss if they were ruined, this wool cardi that's already starting to look a little old and a striped tee to disguise any possible paint spills 😂 The Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere is waterproof and easy to wipe clean so that was an obvious choice.

The boys had a fun time and although they were covered in the fake 'mud' I managed to keep my outfit clean! There was none of the paint there was last time that refused to wash out of their clothes.


Last worn: grey maxi cardigan, beaded necklace, navy stripe tee, green skinny jeans, Converse, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere.

Why I wore it:

A nice quiet stay at home mum day with the boys. We headed to our fave park in the morning, grabbed some groceries and then my aunt and uncle came over later in the afternoon to check out our new place. My uncle helped setup part of my wardrobe room too, it's a work in progress and I will share a video when it's all done!

Felt like it had been a while since I'd worn this striped tee, so got it out for another wear. With purple jeans for something different, and the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag as I like pink and purple together. Easy outfit for a cooler day.

Striped Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee and jeans is a classic mum outfit. It works in warmer weather and in cooler weather you just need to add a cosy cardigan on top. For something a little different, you can try some brightly coloured jeans instead of the traditional blue denim.

Maxi Dresses With Denim Jackets, Ankle Boots and Cross Body Bags

I love dresses and ankle boots in autumn! And although it's a lot cooler in Brisbane with winter just a few days away, (and I'm freezing away in Scotland!) a light denim jacket was all that was needed on the warmer early autumn days when I wore these outfits.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket

BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

I wore this pretty maxi dress out to brunch with some other Brisbane style Instagrammers. When I first tried on this dress in Jeanswest back in Spring last year I was wearing ankle boots and I loved how it looked - so I am glad with the cooler weather I got to give this combination a wear!

We all caught up for a wonderful brunch at Little and Oliver's on the Bayside and then some of us went and took a few extra photos afterwards. Big thanks to K for taking this shot for me!

I rarely get a chance to wear this vintage Chanel bag so I decided to wear it out since I was kid-free for a rare change! It was a nice accessory with the colourful printed dress.

Why I wore it:

Repeated the outfit formula from above again with different pieces. You can't really see in the pics but I picked my tan ankle boots to go under this tie dye maxi dress with the peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren cross body bag and the same trusty denim jacket.

Couldn't resist being a little matchy-matchy with the blush necklace to match the blush pink bag! Wore this out to church on a rather busy day. The dress was a throw on and go easy outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed Tanks And Pencil Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Darren Messenger Bag

Back with another weekday wear linkup!

The simplest casual summer outfit might be shorts and a tee, but the simplest summer office outfit is a printed tank and classic black pencil skirt! Wearing two of my much loved printed tanks below with my often worn black pencil skirts and my Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

While these are great outfits to beat the heat, a cover-up in the office was definitely needed. Throwing a blazer over these outfits makes it look instantly more professional and stops you from shivering in the freezing meeting rooms. Why are they always so cold?!

What I wore:

Earrings: gifted gold pendant chandelier earrings
Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
TopJeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

I love this printed tank, and it's not the first time I've worn it to work with a plain black pencil skirt. It looks great worn casually with shorts too! It's one of those pieces that does double duty, for days off and days in the office. It works so well under a blazer.

While the peach and blush leaves in the print don't really show up on the camera, I thought the blush was a perfect match for this pink tassel necklace and Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

I was a little upset the necklace seemed kind of lost in the print of the tank in the photo, but photo aside, I loved wearing this. I thought the gold earrings and shoes were cute accessories, even if the hardware on the Darren bag is silver.


Last worn: leaf print tank, pink tassel necklace, black pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

The silver tassel earrings might be a bit much with the layered necklaces, but I wanted to wear them all and figured the neutral colours would tone it all down. Felt like it had been a while since I'd last worn this tank so got it out again to wear to the office. Like the tank above, it's one of those pieces that works casually or in a formal environment.

I packed a black blazer to wear over this and it created a very formal suit-like outfit, even with the fun tassel earrings and the casual hairstyle. Such a hot and humid day, and despite the heat I had to rush across the city with some files in a gap between meetings - a really hectic day!
