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.

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!

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.

Blue Kimonos With Navy Tops and Shorts

Keeping it simple for the summer heat with shorts and kimonos! I love my kimonos over summer, I'm sharing an old favourite that's on frequent repeat as well as a new one I picked up in the January sales!

What I wore:

navy floral cocoon kimono with marle tee and pink cuffed shorts balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

floral kimono and pink shorts with Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | floral cocoon kimono with pink shorts and balenciaga first bag
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly, despite having both this kimono and the navy tee for a few years, I've never worn them together! I think the slightly different shade of navy from the marle tee works so nicely with the deeper navy on the floral kimono. The blush pink shorts are something that have been worn with this kimono a few times in the past, even though they don't match the pink in the print exactly I feel they compliment it nicely. And the rose gold and blush necklace matches them perfectly to tie it all together.

The turquoise Balenciaga first bag kind of matches the pale blue in the floral print, which was a happy coincidence as intended the bag to be another pop of colour for the outfit. It makes me happy when everything matches nicely!

This was a quick outfit to pull together for a busy day. We dropped off more stuff at the opshop, and then of course I bought a few more things when we went in to "just have a look", ha! Still the 2 pieces of clothing and 2 books we bought were a lot less than the 4 boxes and a bag full of clothes and other items that we had donated! I do tend to delay donating things until I have a car boot full as I always find something to buy every time I go. Then we had a lot of errands to run, thankfully most of them could be done in the comfort of the air-conditioned shopping centre as it was a very humid day!


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, blush and rose gold necklace, navy marle tee, blush cotton shorts, Havaianas, Balenciaga first bag.

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with tassel bag charm | away from the blue

navy and black breastfeeding theme park outfit Jeanswest Kensley summer tie-dye kimono | awayfromblue Instagram
Jacket: Jeanswest Kensley summer tie-dye kimono (new purchase, on sale!)
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoes: New Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I picked this navy tank to wear as I'm getting close to 30 wears with it and so I'm trying to reach for it more often to hit that number this year! I also liked the way it went with this recently purchased tie dye kimono. Especially when worn with the black shorts, it echos the colours in the tie dye print nicely.

Added the purple and gold necklace for a little touch of colour, and the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag as I needed something waterproof for our day out at Sea World on the Gold Coast. We had quite a lot of rain that weekend, which put out a few fires thankfully, and it was predicted to rain more. Luckily it didn't start raining until we were in the car going home.

The shoes are actually super old ones I purchased out of necessity when I was in an accident and injured my knee years ago, before kids. I've kept them despite many wardrobe clear outs even though they are rarely worn (only on longer walks with the dogs) as they are nice to have "just in case". I've always had a bit of a weak knee with repeated knocks, accidents and bumps to it causing an old injury to be aggravated. It's good to have these for whenever my injury plays up.

I'm not a fan of the dad sneaker trend but with a day of walking around a theme park ahead of me and still being in a lot of knee pain after injuring myself again after Christmas, I needed a shoe that would support my knee as much as possible. Even if they don't go with my outfit, I always keep things real here on the blog and share what I actually wear. Plus it's the bags you come to see, not my boring shoe collection 😂





Last worn: navy breastfeeding tank, marble necklaceblack denim shorts, speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the tie dye kimono as it's a recent purchase. 

Other ways to wear: navy breastfeeding tank and blush blazer, black denim shorts and printed tee, speedy bandouliere and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancynavy breastfeeding tank in second trimester, speedy bandouliere in third trimester.




Navy Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A navy kimono is so easy to wear, even if it's a bold tie dye or floral print. You can wear a simple navy tank or tee underneath and a pair of your fave shorts, for a summer outfit that's quick to pull together.

Foil Print Tees and Denim Shorts With Bright Rebecca Minkoff Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up!

More casual outfits for this week's Weekday Wear Link up. Back in the summer of 2017/2018 I bought a few foil print tees. I tend not to wear them for everyday as they feel a bit more special than a regular tree, but I realised they hadn't been worn in a while. Going out with family felt like the perfect time to wear them. They pair so nicely with denim!

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC with silver bracelet stack denim shorts kimono | awayfromtheblue

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wore this blue and white outfit to go see Frozen 2 with the kids. They were so excited to see it, but we wanted to wait until we could all go together. Thankfully everyone's days off lined up eventually. It was so strange sitting there in the movie theatre watching the second Frozen movie with my mum, sister and my two kids, as when I saw the first one with my mum and sister I was pregnant with my eldest boy! He loved the songs and danced along in my belly so it's no surprise he still loves the movie now, ha!

I've worn this navy printed kimono with stripes before, it's a great way to print mix especially with the silver foil stripes on this tee. I kept the silver theme with the necklace, bracelet and the silver hardware on the pink mini MAC. Pink is another thing that's frequently worn with this kimono!

The studded gladiator sandals and the distressed denim shorts were simple pieces to wear with the colourful blue and pink outfit.


Last worn: navy printed kimono, circle necklace, silver foil stripe tee, distressed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC.

TeeJeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Although you can't see it so well in the main photo this cream tee is covered in lots of little foil stars, the perfect sparkly outfit for a night out at Movie World's White Christmas event! Especially when paired with the silver glitter Kmart shoes, and the silver cuff. My sister thought the same - she and I matched with our star print tees and black shorts! It's no mystery why I dress the boys the same when my sister and I are still doing it as adults! 😂

As it was a Christmas event at the theme park I added some red accessories for a festive touch of colour. I wore this little red Rebecca Minkoff mini Avery tote bag last time we went too, it's a great size for my wallet and camera and it zips up securely to keep everything safe. The necklace was a nice bit of matchy matchy.

Once again we had a great time at the event, it was awesome!



Last worn: star print tee, red beaded necklace, black denim shorts, silver sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearstar print tee worn two ways, black denim shorts and scarf, silver sneakers and grey dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and matching jeans.




Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print tee is a fun twist on a classic tee. Just like a plain tee, it works well with denim! You can continue the sparkle with other accessories like I have with the shoes and cuff in the second outfit, or just let the tee be all the sparkle and add some bright colourful accessories like red blue or pink.

Yellow Tees and Navy Floral Kimonos With Balenciaga First Bag

Blue and yellow is a colour combination I really like to wear, so I decided to wear both of these navy floral kimonos with a yellow tee and shorts. A simple yet colourful summer outfit!

What I wore:


Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono and essential v neck tee in elfin yellow olive pull on shorts | awayfromblue

olive shorts and Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | jeanswest melanie floral kimono with yellow tee and olive embroidered shorts balenciaga first bag
JacketJeanswest Melanie floral kimono (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
TeeJeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow (new purchase)
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bag: Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

I picked up the yellow tee and the floral kimono in the Jeanswest buy one get one free sale after Christmas. I was eager to use a gift card I got for Christmas, and since the $80 kimono was reduced to $39.99 I paid for that and got the $30 tee for free! Pretty good deal. The two pieces also go so nicely together I knew I had to wear them together for the first wear!

The navy tassel necklace matched the base of the floral kimono perfectly, and I thought the Balenciaga first bag complimented the colours in the kimono well too. The olive shorts were a comfortable choice and an attempt to introduce even more colour. I really liked this outfit! I've had mixed success in the past with a slouchy tee along with these loose soft shorts, but I think the long line of the duster kimono made this really work.

Nice and colourful outfit for a day spent with my sister checking out a few stores and spending more Christmas gift cards! We picked up some cute Christmas decorations for next year too, and I bought another kimono at Jeanswest.... 😂


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, olive soft shorts, Havaianas. First time I've worn the bag as it was a Christmas present and first time I've worn the yellow tee and floral kimono as they are recent purchases.

navy and mustard with Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | away from the blue

JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bag: Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above. It's not the first time I've worn yellow with this navy floral kimono, I really liked the combination when I tried it in the past but I wasn't entirely convinced this time. I was going to wear blue denim shorts but changed my mind to these white shorts at the last moment to match the white in the floral print of the kimono. After looking at the photos though I think that blue denim might have been better.

Even the matchy-matchy with the Balenciaga first bag and the turquoise tassel necklace, which I did like, I wasn't 100% happy with this outfit looking at the pics. I don't hate it, it just doesn't look as good as the one above I don't think! Was comfortable for a morning running errands and having friends over in the afternoon though.

Yellow Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Yellow tees are so fun and cheerful to wear! You can match them to something else you're wearing like I have in the first outfit, with the pastel yellow tee matching the floral print in the kimono, or you can contrast it like the navy florals and the mustard tee in the second outfit.

Two Ways To Wear White Bermuda Denim Shorts: Weekday Wear Linkup!

Wearing some new-to-me shorts for today's Weekday Wear link up! I wore these after Christmas in two different ways, bright and colourful with some new Christmas presents I got, and sticking to a monochrome black and white outfit for the second time I wore them.

I was hunting in the opshops in December for a Christmas tree skirt, and having no luck I browsed some of the other racks. I was so surprised to see these white Bermuda denim shorts in my size for just $6, so of course I got them! It's rare to find denim in my size, and I'd been thinking about white shorts for a while. With two dogs at home and two toddler boys I'm still not sure white shorts are the wisest choice, but for $6 I was willing to give it a try.


What I wore:

TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts (new purchase)
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

After a relaxing boxing day at home, we needed to get a few more groceries. We always go through bread so quickly after Christmas, making sandwiches with all the leftover ham and chicken! I convinced hubby that we should head to our local Westfield to maybe checkout the sales as well as getting more groceries.

It was a good excuse to wear some of my new Christmas presents too! I love the way this raspberry tee works with the blue kimono, and the necklace was the perfect accessory. I stuck with the neutral white Bermuda shorts and tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag to balance out all the colour.

I didn't buy too much in the sales, but did pick up a couple of things at Jeanswest as it was buy one get one free on all the sale pieces. I was also thrilled to keep these shorts free of spills or grubby toddler hands or fluffy paws! A successful stain-free first wear!


Last worn: Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. The shorts were a new purchase and the kimono, tee, and necklace were Christmas presents.

Other ways to wearRebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and orange cami.



What I Got For Christmas: Balenciaga Bag Reveal







What I wore:

monochrome black stripe tank with white bermuda denim shorts tortoiseshell accessories straw bag | away from blue

Amerii medium sling round rattan bag in black with white bermuda shorts | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | monochrome black white striped tank bermuda denim shorts outfit with straw bag
Earrings: Colette statement tortoise shell acrylic oval drop earrings
Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

The next time I wore these white shorts I kept it simple and monochromatic with the black striped tank. Even picked a little black bag as well, this Amerii straw circle bag was perfect. The fun tortoise shell necklace has matching earrings too and I thought the print would be a cute touch with the striped tank. It's a shame that the earrings don't show up so well against my hair in the pictures though! I liked the matchy-matchy with them and the necklace.

Did a little bit of shopping (and checked out the Kmart clearance sale) while hubby was running errands. We also finally managed to watch Love Actually while the kids were at kindy! We'd been watching a lot of Christmas movies and family movies over the break so I never felt like staying up late to watch a grown up movie once the kids were in bed. It's my favourite movie though and so perfect for Christmas time, even if we did watch it a little late!


Last worn: striped tank, Bermuda denim shorts (above), Havaianas, straw circle bag. First time I've worn the earrings and necklace as they are Christmas presents.

Other ways to wear: striped tank and purple jeans, straw circle bag and maxi skirt.




White Bermuda Denim Shorts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

White shorts are a great outfit base for anything - they work well with prints and you can also go all out wearing bright colours on top as they are a wonderful neutral to accompany lots of colour.

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:

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.

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!

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 Accessorise Monochrome Blue Shorts Outfits - Red, Yellow and Green

Blue is my favourite colour and I do wear a lot of it! While I'm trying to stay away from the blue jeans, I do love my blue denim shorts. I paired the blue shorts with some blue tops to create monochromatic outfits, and accessorised each with different colours. Bright bags and kimonos with shorts outfits are a summer staple for me!

What I wore:

navy slouchy tee denim shorts red printed kimono and micro avery bag summer mum style | awayfromblue

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this to spend the day with my sister. I love when our days off line up together, and the kids really love spending time with their fave aunt! We headed out to Bounce which is basically just a giant warehouse filled with trampolines. Wanted something simple to jump around in but cool for the hot day so picked this super soft tee and denim shorts. It felt a little plain so I added the kimono for a touch of colour, and the little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery tote matches the red in the print.

Still felt this outfit was lacking a little something so added this light thrifted necklace - didn't want anything too heavy while bouncing around! Ended up doing more bouncing than I expected, as my sister and I perfected the double bounce you can see below and also enjoyed bouncing off the trampoline onto a giant pillow with the boys. Was a great day, and after lunch we relaxed a little bit before an early dinner and when out again for a trial sports session in the evening for my eldest son.

Why I wore it:

I think part of the reason I love yellow so much is that it goes great with blue! I wasn't feeling the best on this day so decided to try brighten up my monochrome blue tank and denim shorts outfit with this bright yellow kimono. I felt it was a great topper for the navy and made me look a little more energetic than I felt! The long tassel necklace broke up the blue a bit, and this little green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag was another fun way to add some colour.

While my breastfeeding days are behind me, I kept this tank in my wardrobe as it's a good basic and you wouldn't know just by looking at it that it's designed for breastfeeding!

Was a quiet day with the boys - headed to our local fenced in park so I could try sit and rest while they played. Bumped into my friend there so the boys had fun playing together and getting some of their energy out!

How You Can Wear It:

A navy top is a great basic to have in your wardrobe- tanks or tees, both look great with denim! To break up the monochrome combo when wearing it with blue denim, try adding other colours to your outfit like a colourful bag or bright kimono.
