3 Navy Tees And Bright Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up

Trying to keep life as normal as possible, we still have the Weekday Wear Link up this week! I won't post again until Friday though, I'm skipping Wednesday's post.

Recently I took advantage of some of the cooler, slightly more autumn like weather in Brisbane to wear some of my colourful skinny jeans. Jeans are a mum staple and while I'm trying to stay away from the blue jeans rut I do love a bright pair of jeans to mix it up a little! Bright jeans are perfect for spring, or a little extra colour on a wet autumn day when you're on a training course which is when I wore these.

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Cassandra jacquard jacket
Necklace: thrifted Equip turquoise cream multi strand bead necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo (c/o)
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate Jeans in magenta (new purchase)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

When I saw these magenta jeans I knew I'd be wearing them with all the blue in my wardrobe! I have a magenta bag I love so it was a no brainier when I saw these jeans on eBay. Already a bargain price, I ended up getting them for free. I tried to sum up the very long story in my shopping haul post.

Although the magenta jeans are pretty bright the neutral cream and metallic jacquard jacket balanced them out nicely I thought, and so I added more colour with other accessories. I really like pink and purple and blue together so this big purple Balenciaga work bag was an obvious choice, and I added the turquoise beaded statement necklace for something a little different.

This necklace has had a bit of a history, with it falling apart when my son grabbed onto it at dinner one day. I've repaired it and it was hanging together okay, but when trying to grab my umbrella out my bag and unwrap it the hook got caught on the necklace and there was no coming back from that! It was $3 at the opshop and I did get 4 wears from it so not too bad, but still disappointing!


Last worn: jacquard blazer, turquoise beaded necklace, navy tank, purple Balenciaga work bag, silver ballet flats. It's the first time I've worn the jeans on the blog as they are a recent purchase.

Jeans:  Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Another classic go to of mine - red and blue! I thought this navy tee was a good choice with these burgundy jeans. I bought these jeans back at the start of the year when Jeanswest was possibly closing down and I had to get myself a pair of their perfectly fitting jeans, in case it was my last pair! Thankfully the chain is staying around, although they have closed a lot of stores. I was pleased to give these jeans another wear with the cooler weather.

Again I added a bright Balenciaga bag for a little extra colour. With the black blazer and ballet flats I thought the turquoise Balenciaga first bag was a fun pop of colour, and it works so well with the navy and burgundy.


Last worn: Zara blazer, navy statement necklace, navy marle tee, burgundy skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Balenciaga blue India first bag.

Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Blue and green is a combination I've only recently been trying, as I've slowly been adding green to my wardrobe over the past few years. These thrifted green jeans are getting a lot more wear than I expected, this is their 18th wear and I've only owned them 19th months. Since I don't wear jeans over summer that's a pretty good repeat rate!

Again I dressed up the casual jeans and tee outfit a bit with a statement necklace (this crystal one always gets compliments) and a boucle blazer. I thought the silver ballet flats worked well with the crystal in the necklace and the silver hardware on the Balenciaga day bag.


Last worn: boucle blazer, crystal statement necklace, navy tee, green skinny jeans, silver ballet flats (above), Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Bright Jeans Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a staple that can easily be dressed up with a blazer. Instead of sticking with classic blue denim, you can try a bright pair of jeans to add even more interest and bring more colour to your day.

Navy Skirts And Printed Tees With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

I've been wearing a lot of maxi skirts lately! They are a nice option for staying covered up but still cool in the hot and humid weather (even though it's officially autumn now in Brisbane!).

What I wore:



Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I've been looking at this thrifted printed tee in my wardrobe for a while realising it was overdue a wear, but I always picked something else to wear instead. This plain navy maxi skirt was the perfect pairing and let the tee be the statement in the outfit. The tee was thrifted for just $1 and the skirt was another thrift find at $4 making this a very affordable outfit!

The bag of course is on the more expensive side! This Rebecca Minkoff Regan is becoming a staple when I spend the day with my youngest while my eldest is in school. I can easily fit both our water bottles inside along with some wipes and hand sanitiser (and my phone and wallet of course) so it saves me also carrying a baby bag too. We had a busy morning but a relaxed afternoon at home before school pickup.


Last worn: abstract print tee, blush tassel necklace, navy maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearabstract print tee and shorts, navy maxi skirt with stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and pencil skirt.



What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan










What I wore:



Necklace: engraved interlinked silver circle family name necklace
Top: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoes:slim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I purchased this tee on our Europe trip last year while shopping in Primark in Edinburgh. I wasn't sure how much wear I'd get from it but it worked out to be around $5 so I couldn't resist! It's actually been getting a bit of wear since I bought it - being a lover of blue I find it works so well with a lot of my wardrobe and it's nice to try wear a little bit more white. Couldn't resist going matchy-matchy and pairing the navy and white graphic tee with the navy and white striped maxi skirt.

Even my Havaianas and my Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag were navy, a very matchy-matchy outfit for me! After the school run we did a quick grocery shop, and then running a few errands after school pick up.


Last worn: Edinburgh graphic tee, silver necklace, navy striped maxi skirt, Havaianas (above), Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearEdinburgh graphic tee and jeans, navy striped maxi skirt and denim jacket, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag in the office.




Navy Maxi Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A navy maxi skirt is a great wardrobe staple, and paired with a tee is a simple mum friendly outfit. For something a little different you can try introducing other prints and patterns with a printed or graphic tee, or stripes.

Foil Print Tees and Maxi Skirts With Balenciaga First Bag

Easy outfits for hot days with a maxi skirt and tee. I decided to get these foil print tees out again, they are a fun twist on a classic plain tee but still so wearable. And based on some of the tops I saw in stores the other week, the foil print trend is still around!

What I wore:

navy foil polka dot tee with ochre maxi skirt turquoise Balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India with ochre maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram navy polka dot foil tee and ochre rust maxi skirt Balenciaga first bag
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

When I want to buy things I think of two ways to wear them right away. I knew I wanted to wear this ochre skirt with navy, blue and orange look so good together! I thought the gold foil polka dots tied in nicely with the rich colour of the skirt too. Can't believe this tee hasn't been worn in over a year! I definitely need to wear it more!

Couldn't resist adding a little extra colour to this with the turquoise necklace and the blue India Balenciaga first bag. I loved the way the addition of the third colour brought even more brightness to this outfit.

Only downside was that I realised while sitting at the sidelines of my son's tennis lesson that you could see the strapping of my injured knee through this skirt and it's not as opaque as I thought! Will be sure to keep that in mind for future wears!


Last worn: foil print polka dot tee, turquoise tassel necklace, ochre maxi skirt, New Balance sneakers, Balenciaga first bag.

Other ways to wearfoil print polka dot tee and shorts, ochre maxi skirt and stripes, Balenciaga first bag and pencil skirt.

Earrings: Colette Sangria sunset disc stud tassel earrings
Tee: Jeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Although I just recently wore this foil stripe tee with shorts, I picked it out to wear again as it's so fun to wear with the foil print. It was perfect with the maxi skirt for church. With the white tee and black skirt I felt a little extra colour was needed so I decided to wear these fun neon peach tassel earrings I got for Christmas. Surprisingly I haven't given them a wear yet!

The turquoise Balenciaga first bag was another bright burst of colour with this outfit, and I really liked the little additional colour touches. I wore the same shoes I've been wearing for weeks since my knee injury before the new year, my daggy old running shoes! Did cringe a little when I saw a Grandad at church wearing very similar shoes 😂


Last worn: foil stripe tee, thrifted black maxi skirtNew Balance sneakers (above), Balenciaga blue India first bag (above). First time I've worn the earrings.

Other ways to wear: foil stripe tee and shrots, thrifted black maxi skirt worn two waysBalenciaga blue India first bag and floral dress.


Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print is a fun touch on a classic staple tee, and it's something that keeps popping up regularly in the stores. Just like a basic tee, they are so easy to wear! You can wear the tee with something plain on the bottom, like a maxi skirt, to avoid any print clash struggles.

What I Bought In February And How I've Worn It: Second Hand Finds

After a big spend in January, I really wasn't intending on spending anything in February. However I couldn't resist just a little browse in the opshop when we passed by and ended up buying a couple of things! This month everything I got was second hand.

What I Bought:




Why I Bought It:


We were walking by the opshop when my son noticed the door was ajar and ran in so how could I say no? 😂 We did the usual checkout of books and toys before I had a small browse of the clothes. With nothing particularly in mind but an extra 50% off summer stock I tried a few things on. Being petite maxi skirts are hard to find - in regular stores as well as opshops! - so I wasn't sure these would fit well. So pleased to find out that they don't need any alteration! I suspect that the ochre maxi skirt is actually a midi skirt, but it's a maxi length on me. It's a beautiful shade - couldn't tell if it was more rust or mustard, and it seems to change colours in different lights! I think it's a true ochre.

I'm a little annoyed that the navy maxi skirt doesn't have any labels other than the fabric tag saying it's viscose as it's so soft and such a good fabric for summer. Such a great find and it's a shame I don't know the brand to be able to hunt out more!

The jeans are a little difficult to explain - an impulse buy when it was cooler with the wild weather and I wondered if I should get some jeans. I stumbled across these at a great price on eBay and was excited to get them. However when they arrived they were not in the condition the auction made them out to be. I emailed the seller with pics of the disappointing condition and asked if I could try wash them or if they wanted me to return them without trying anything. The seller then immediately apologised and refunded me. I then washed them and they came up good as new. Since the seller had cancelled the transaction and refunded me I couldn't do anything about it, leaving feedback or anything. I did offer to send them back now clean but she said to keep them. So technically, I paid nothing for these jeans. And then since that took a while to sort out, the weather heated up again so I haven't worn them yet. And I also feel really guilty that I didn't pay anything as I got my money refunded!


How I've Worn It:




I set myself the rule of wearing things twice in the month I buy them and even with being a little unwell for February I managed to meet that goal with the skirts. Maxi skirts just work so well into my life as a mum, the perfect length for church or the school run, and with the heat and humidity these light skirts have been a good choice. Was so easy to hit my wear twice goal with these skirts and I have so many more outfits in mind for them!

The jeans I didn't wear as it's just been too hot. They are sure to get more wear when Autumn weather finally arrives, now it's officially autumn we just have to wait for the summer heat to leave here in Brisbane! They are a very bold magenta so I'm excited to show them off once the weather cools down.

A few purchases even if I wasn't intending to buy anything this month! I'm pleased everything was preloved though, second hand shopping is a lot kinder to my wallet and the environment.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Pink Tees and Blue Printed Maxi Skirts with Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sharing two similar casual outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, that follow the same basic outfit formula but look very different. I like pink and blue together, so on some stay at home mum days I paired two different pink tees with printed blue maxi skirts and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

I share a lot of workwear looks for the linkup, but I only work part time so aside from the two days I'm in the office during the week I'm pretty casually dressed!

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull with striped maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | summer SAHM style navy stripe maxi skirt raspberry v neck tee casual outfit with louis vuitton neverfull MM
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Decided to get pics of this lovely outfit while we were out by the bayside - unfortunately the tide was out so it's not as pretty as I thought it would turn out, haha! I had one on one time with my son and while we did have to get groceries on the way back home, we spent the morning playing by the sea and having a special morning tea just the two of us. By the time the tide had rolled in, my outfit was covered in cake, apple juice and sand so I wasn't going to try repeat the photos! 😂

This raspberry pink tee works so well with the navy stripe maxi skirt - I feel I haven't given this skirt much attention lately, it's a great basic piece and pairs so well with many colours. This raspberry tee was a Christmas gift from my mum and works well with all of the blue I have in my wardrobe! Matched the navy stripes with the navy and gold necklace and the navy and pink Havaianas. I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was perfect as I didn't take the baby bag. I carried the wipes, hand sanitiser and both our water bottles in it to save having to bring the baby bag along too.


Last worn: raspberry tee, navy and gold necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton damier azur MM Neverfull tote.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above - pink tee, printed blue maxi skirt, but a lot brighter with the hot pink frill sleeve tee and the bright blue floral maxi skirt. I really liked this outfit - it was a bit of a bold pairing but it made me smile all day! I added the purple crescent necklace for a little extra colour but I'll be honest the pink tee is so bold you barely notice it!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull as I had a busy day ahead, including taking advantage of some rare kid-free time in the afternoon to finally go to the optician and discover that I did need new glasses (I use glasses for working at the computer). Turned into a very expensive day!

Blue Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A blue printed maxi skirt looks great worn with a simple basic tee. You don't have to stick to neutrals though! You can pick a soft pink, or even a bold bright pink, for something a little different that's still just as comfortable. Pink and blue are a great combination in any shades!

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

awayfromblue Instgaram | monochrome blue outfit with navy tee floral maxi skirt mum church style
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.

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.

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.

Floral Kimonos and Space Dye Tees With Denim Shorts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Two very similar outfits again, just like Monday's post. I was wearing my denim shorts, thrifted space dye tees and some floral kimonos with silver necklaces and my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. Easy outfits for the school run.

What I wore:

sheer floral supre kimono thrifted distressed denim shorts space dye tee rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue

sheer floral kimono with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta  | awayfromtheblue

Jacketthrifted Supre black sheer floral kimono
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!)

Why I wore it:

This is such an affordable outfit - if you look at the clothing (although the Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag was on sale it was still over $200! 😂). The kimono I thrifted recently for $1, the black space dye tee was just 67 cents as I got it as part of a "fill a bag for $2" sale at the opshop, and the denim shorts were another opshop find and just $8.50. I've been trying to buy second hand more and this outfit is a great example of all of that.

The black space dye tee I thought would go nicely with the sheer floral kimono, I really liked the way this outfit turned out. Perfect for the school and daycare drop off on a hot day. The tee and shorts felt a little plain on their own, even with the long silver statement necklace, so the floral kimono added a little extra colour and print to my outfit, and the magenta Edie bag pairs with the pink florals so nicely.


Last worn: sheer floral kimono, silver circle necklace, black space dye tee, distressed denim shorts, black Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearsheer floral kimono and pink shorts, black space dye tee in the office, distressed denim shorts and grey knit, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and sundress.



What's In My Bag & Review: Rebecca Minkoff Edie Cross Body










What I wore:

floral cocoon kimono space dye tee bermuda denim shorts rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue Instagram

Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta (get it preowned!)

Why I wore it:

This outfit follows the exact same formula as the outfit above, and yet I didn't like it as much. It was okay, I just liked the first one more. I thought this thrifted white space dye tee would go nicely with this navy floral kimono as it has a lot of white in the print, and the Bermuda denim shorts are a wardrobe staple that work well with the cocoon style of the kimono. Again, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag in magenta was so good with the floral print.

It was a cooler morning for the school run and daycare drop off, so I picked this warmer cotton kimono to wear. when I had my dentist appointment in the afternoon she complimented me on it and was surprised I was wearing it outside - it was much warmer in the afternoon! So helpful in the morning and for staying cosy in the aircon at the dentist, but definitely much too warm in the afternoon. Perhaps that's why I didn't like this outfit as much. Trying so hard to wear this kimono often to reach that 30 wears figure though!


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, space dye tee, silver statement necklace, Bermuda denim shorts, navy Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag (above).

Other ways to wearfloral cocoon kimono and jeans, space dye tee and green, Bermuda denim shorts worn 30 ways, Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral cocoon kimono at 39 weeks.


Space Dye Tops Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A space dye tee is a fun twist on a classic plain tee. The print isn't so overwhelming that you can't wear it with other printed pieces in your outfit. Try florals! You can coordinate the floral print to match the colours on the tee too like I have with each outfit here.
