Vloggers Catch Up Video: Striped Tees and Skinny Jeans With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Exciting post today, sharing my usual two outfits and my first video collaboration with a brand! I mentioned before I got talking to a brand I love at the bloggers brunch and so I featured them in a video when I went to catch up with some other vlogging mums. Unfortunately, I didn't love my outfits as much as I loved catching up with my YouTube friends, I ended up regretting my outfit choices.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag on arm with black | awayfromtheblue

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Wasn't sure what kind of day it would be, so I took the opportunity to wear all the layers! The boys and I headed to New Farm park for an Australian Vlogging Mums catch-up. We were going to be sitting by the water and it was a cold morning so cosy pieces seemed like a great idea. By the time we reached the park it was much warmer. I left the scarf in the car, and the cardigan came off and on through the morning, spending most of the time just in jeans and a tee.

I thought this little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag was a cute touch with the red logo on the tee, and it also fits nicely inside the baby bag to help reduce the number of bags I had to carry on the way back to the car.

I did regret wearing the glitter shoes. They were comfortable and I thought they'd be fun, but they did get a little dirty. Not as dirty as the new shoes I put on the boys before they got up to their mischief though! You can see what I mean in the video. Bad shoe choices for the whole family there!

Why I wore it:

This day was not as fun as the one above! Similar outfit formula though, again with a striped tee, skinny jeans and those fun glittery shoes. I added the purple cardigan and blue scarf for some extra colour with all of the neutrals. Like the first outfit, I added a cute and colourful Rebecca Minkoff bag. This time my plum mini MAB tote.

The plan was for a relaxing Saturday with a swim lessons and grocery shopping, but plans quickly changed when the little one was unwell. Took him to the doctors where I again regretted my outfit choice.

Sick kids are messy, and I was wearing a white tee...which wasn't quite as white by the time the doctor called us through!

It was a nice outfit, just a bad day! Thankfully the doctor could give us some medicine to help.

Striped Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Striped tees are a wardrobe staple! Paired with neutral skinny jeans, it's easy classic mum style. For extra interest and warmth you can add a colourful scarf as well as a fun bright handbag. Having a neutral outfit makes adding colourful pieces on top simpler as you don't have to worry about colours clashing.

Second Hand Shopping: Black Tees and Green Pants With Balenciaga Day Bag

Second hand shopping, opshopping, thrifting, whatever you call it. It's a big factor towards letting me continue to shop even though I'm working part time with two kids and much less disposable income than before!

The two outfits before show some of the secondhand pieces in my wardrobe. With the exception of the shoes, because I can never find shoes my size in an opshop! And the scarf I threw on at the last minute.

What I wore:

SAHM style black space dye tee green asos petite skinny jeans opshop finds | away from blue

Balenciaga truffle brown day hobo bag classic RH | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | black tee green skinny jeans opshop finds thrifted outfit glitter shoes Balenciaga day bag
Tee: thrifted Mix Apparel black marle tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers (new purchase)
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

With a warmer day, I was able to just wear a tee with no scarf or cardigan needed. It was a nice sign of winter coming to an end, even if it immediately got cold again afterwards.

While I do love splurging on accessories, I have a much lower budget in mind when clothes shopping! I think this outfit showcases that nicely.

The black space dye tee was a piece I picked up at the 'fill a bag for $2' sale at my local opshop. The green pants were just $5 from a different opshop. The bag was a preloved find from Designer Archives, a consignment store in Brisbane city. The only new thing in this outfit was the shoes, a $8 Kmart bargain!

While the warm weather meant a scarf was definitely not needed, I did think about wearing a necklace. I decided to give it a miss and just let the glitter shoes be the highlight of the outfit. Even if we weren't doing anything more special than running a couple of errands and going to the doctors, it was nice to have a bit of sparkle to do so! These were so comfortable for a first wear too.


Last worn: space dye tee, green skinny jeans, Balenciaga day bag. First time I've worn the silver shoes on the blog as they are a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearspace dye tee in the office, green skinny jeans and mustard yellow, Balenciaga day bag and printed dress.

My Complete Handbag Collection




Taken back when I had turned the spare room into a walk in wardrobe room, it's the most recent video I have showing my complete handbag collection - a lot of which were bought pre-loved.



What I wore:

black printed long sleeve tee olive skinny cargo pants paisley print infinity scarf | awayfromblue

Balenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag worn on shoulder printed black tee | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram SAHM style black tee olive skinny cargo pants paisley print scarf

ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
Pants: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants
Shoes:  Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

Another thrifted outfit, although I added the scarf at the last minute. Like the shoes, the scarf was bought new, but on sale.

Just like the outfit above, this long sleeve black tee was picked up at a 'fill a bag with clothes for $2' opshop sale. I'm really happy with it, and knew that I wanted to wear it with these olive cargo pants. They were also an opshop find, from the same opshop (although before the $2 sale!). They were just $3. They are so slouchy and insanely comfortable.

As it was a little chilly in the morning for daycare drop off I added this paisley print snood - I think it was the perfect piece with the colours in the outfit, and I think it made the outfit. Once again, the accessories were the most expensive part of my outfit. I definitely have a formula I follow with outfits!


Last worn: black long sleeve tee, paisley print snood, olive cargo pants, Converse, Balenciaga day bag (above).

Green Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Green pants can be simple to wear when you pair them with neutral basics like these black tees. It makes an easy stay at home mum outfit that doesn't require a lot of thinking to pull together. Just what you need in the morning rush trying to get yourself and kids ready and out the door on time!

Red Tees, Skinny Jeans, Cardigans and Louis Vuitton Bags

At the end of winter, while the days were warming up in Brisbane, the mornings were still pretty cold. It means layering up, so by the time it reaches 25 / 28 degrees (82 F) in the afternoon, you've shed all of your layers.

Despite wearing a similar outfit formula on both of these days, I had very different experiences with each!

What I wore:

red tee with skinny jeans converse grey maxi cardigan louis vuitton speedy bag | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with heatstamp | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram grey cardigan skinny jeans leopard print scarf and red tee outfit

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy but fun filled day. I had the day off from work to volunteer at the Ekka (Brisbane's royal state show, kinda like the state fairs in the US). I dropped the boys off at daycare, ran a quick errand and started filming some videos before it was time to leave. Just as I was in the middle of filming I got a call from daycare that one of the boys had a fever. I frantically called around, found someone to take care of him, rushed to daycare to pick him up and then dropping him off in safe hands I headed out to the Ekka.

Got to the Ekka with plenty of time to stroll around taking in the sights, get some showbags and then get to work. My volunteer shift finished slightly early so I quickly picked up my bags and headed home to my boys, after quickly texting to make sure all was still okay. By the time I got home he really wasn't in a good state. I rushed him to the doctors (thank goodness for the 24/7 primary care centre nearby!) where the doctor scolded us for bringing him there instead of calling an ambulance and ended up calling the ambulance for us. Ending the night in Lady Cilento hospital was not how I had planned the day to go, but at least he's feeling better now.

Outfit wise at least I was comfortable! I picked the Converse as I knew I'd be in the kitchen volunteering for most of the day, and the scarf and cardigan were good layers to take off and on as it got too hot, and easily fit inside my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull worn on arm | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue instagram navy and red skinny jeans outfit with poppy print scarf LV NF tote
Earrings: Kmart blue fringe crescent statement earrings (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, but a much more relaxed day! I wore this a few days after the incident above, I had scheduled the day off in advance to try give myself some downtime. Thankfully the little one was feeling much better so I didn't feel too guilty leaving him to have some me-time. I spent some time Christmas present shopping, picking up things I'd noticed the boys might like on a previous shopping trip. Yes it's early, but you need to take advantage of any kid-free moments you can get to shop!

As it was supposed to warm up to such a hot day, but I had an early start, I dressed in layers. I thought this poppy print scarf worked nicely with the red tee, but I needed a little something to cover my arms to so went with this navy waterfall cardigan. The navy cardigan also perfectly matched the statement earrings! By the time afternoon arrived and it was 20 degrees warmer than when I first ventured out, the scarf and cardigan had been ditched. Again, it was nice that they could both fit inside my bag, the Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull this time.

After a busy morning, I had a leisurely lunch and treated myself to a pedicure in anticipation of the warmer weather sticking around. It was nice to enjoy the sunshine and warmth for a bit! I even managed to film a complete video too, after the less than perfect attempt a few days before.





Red Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A red tee is a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe! It's a fun pop of colour against neutral layers like in the first outfit, or works well with other colours like navy as in the second outfit. When in doubt, pair a red tee with neutral skinny jeans.

Green Pants With Mustard Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Bag and Cosy Cardigans

Green is a colour I find tricky to wear. I've had a few green pieces in my wardrobe over the years, but it's usually due to buying something despite it being green, rather than buying something because it's green like I do with colours like mustard or blue.

After getting green maternity pieces a few years ago, I've been open to trying green more often. I've tried olive and blush together before, and another combo I like but rarely wear is green and yellow.

Below I'm wearing my little mustard Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag with some newly purchased green pieces. In an effort to try mix things up a little in my wardrobe, I bought 3 green pieces in one month!

What I wore:

mustard cardigan, star print scarf, green tee and olive skinny cargo pants micro regan bag | awayfromblue

olive pants with mustard rebecca minkoff micro regan harvest gold bag | awyafromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram mustard cardigan and micro regan bag with olive tee and skinny cargo pants
Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Scarf: star print pashmina
TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
Pants: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants (new purchase)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Both the tee and the pants are new purchases. The Jeanswest dark green tee looks almost grey, it's a very unique colour. I decided I'd try it with these olive skinny cargo pants that I thrifted for $3. Given that I thrifted the cardigan from the opshop last year for $2, and the scarf was a gift, it's easy to see the accessories are the most expensive part of my outfit!

I hadn't been feeling the best, but had a few errands to run and so decided to wear this outfit I'd planned as I didn't have the energy to come up with something else. While I feel this outfit looks a little crumpled and creased, I did love the colours of everything together. It was a great first wear of the pants. I like that the green tee is a different enough shade from the green pants, and the mustard cardigan and micro Regan bag were great pieces to add.

Nice and comfortable for a morning of running errands with the boys, taking my cardigan and scarf off and on as the temperatures fluctuated before calling it a day and heading home to rest with less achieved than I'd hoped. At least I liked the outfit!


Last worn: mustard cardigan, star print scarf, dark green tee, camel flats, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag. It's the first time I've worn the pants as they were a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmustard cardigan and little black dress, star print scarf and wrap dress, dark green tee and pencil skirt, camel flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan bag and denim shorts.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan

awayfromblue instagram grey maxi cardigan green and yellow outfit colourful skinny jeans mustard bag
JacketJeanswest Alice longline Australian wool cardigan

TeeAtmos&Here grey v-neck tee with rolled sleeves (also in black)
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This outfit was not as much of a bargain as the outfit above (with the grey cardigan alone costing more than all the clothes in the first outfit, even though it was a sale buy!). I still liked it though. I went with a similar outfit formula to wear these newly thrifted jeans. $5 for new with tags ASOS petite jeans in the opshop was too good to pass up, even if I did debate the purchase for a little while as it's a rather bold shade of green. I wore this to go to playgroup with the boys.

For the first wearing of the pants I thought I'd stick with the classics - a grey tee looks good with everything, and the grey maxi cardigan was a nice neutral topper along with the silver shoes. I did really enjoy the mustard and olive combo above, so I decided to try the mustard micro Regan bag with the emerald green pants. Along with the parrot print scarf with green and gold in the print, I ended up loving this colour combination. I think the scarf made it work perfectly by matching the pants and the bag. I do like a bit of matchy matchy sometimes! I've worn this scarf with teal before and really liked it then too!

Green Pants Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Colourful green pants like these don't have to be tricky to wear. While the shades of green are different, I stuck with a basic outfit formula. A neutral tee, a cosy cardigan and then a pop of colour with a bag. This formula works for any colour of pants you're thinking of wearing!
You can keep things really pared back with a neutral cardigan like in the last outfit, or continue your bright pop of colour bag into your outfit with a similar coloured knit like the first outfit.

New Tees and Textured Pencil Skirts With Balenciaga Bags

After I completed my No Buy July challenge, I made up for not shopping for a month and quickly started buying things in August! I picked up two tees from Jeanswest and thought that they would go nicely with my textured pencil skirts for work. Plain tee, busy textured skirt, seems like a fail-safe outfit. I'm wearing the tees in the outfits below, with mixed results!

What I wore:

TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta (new purchase)
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I like wearing red and blue together. While I don't have a lot of red in my wardrobe, it's a colour I love accessorising with when I'm wearing something blue. It was nice to switch things up a little and wear this new red tee with a colourful blue scarf for a slight reversal on the usual blue clothes and red accessories combination.

It's the first time I've worn this tee and I really liked it. The shade of red is so easy to wear and it's so soft, definitely my kinda tee. It was my last day at work before going on leave, so I was a bit busy trying to get everything done on time, and it was nice to have a comfortable outfit to wear with all the craziness.

With the bright colours in the outfit, I thought a classic neutral bag would be best to accessorise with and picked my black Balenciaga part time. I've been wearing this bag often lately, it goes with everything and fits a lot, such a good bag and one of my favourites from my Balenciaga handbag collection. I've included a video below for you of my full collection!

BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above, even though it follows the same outfit formula (you know I love my outfit formulas!). When I first tried on this tee I had a closer look at the tag as I couldn't really tell what colour it was - what looked green in the store looked more grey in the change rooms. It's officially 'dark green'. I thought I'd take advantage of the deeper olive looking more grey and wear it how I would a grey tee, with blue and purple. I wouldn't normally try the colour combo with olive!

I felt good about my choice in the morning to wear the grey/green tee with the blue lace skirt and purple blanket scarf, even adding in my purple Balenciaga work bag for a bit of matchy-matchy. Reviewing the photos though I worried it looked a bit too olive to work with the purple. Of course I had to get to work so wore it anyway, alternating between liking and being unsure about the combo through the day!

It's funny as I look at the photos now on my computer screen and the tee looks more grey - it's definitely going to be a fun tee to wear. (I have worn it with olive as well and really loved that combo!)


Last worn: Barkins trench coat, purple blanket scarf, lace pencil skirt, Walnut Melbourne, Balenciaga purple work bag. First time I've worn this tee on the blog, although I have worn it previously and just not posted it yet.

Textured Pencil Skirts Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

With a busy textured skirt, a plain top is a good choice. You don't have to worry about the prints clashing or your outfit being too loud. A classic tee like these ones are good pieces to have in your wardrobe, but if your office dress code is more formal you could swap them out for a plain blouse instead.

Foil Print Tees, Waterfall Cardigans, Skinny Jeans and Mini MAC

Feeling a little uninspired with my winter wardrobe, I decided to go through and pick out some of my favourite pieces, these foil print tees, and build outfits around them. With cosy scarves and cardigans, as I wore them a few weeks ago when winter was in full swing in Brisbane.

What I wore:

red cardigan, black jeans, ankle boots foil print tee, aqua mini MC SAHM Style | awayfromblue

red cardigan, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram red cardigan feather scarf foil polka dot tee black skinny jeans
JacketJeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
Scarf: grey and gold embroidered feather scarf
TeeJeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (C/O)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I kind of threw this outfit together, thinking that I liked navy and red together, I love the little aqua mini MAC bag with the red cardigan, and the gold embroidered feathers on the scarf tied in with the foil polka dots. Reviewing the photos I'm not 100% happy with it, I think having something more than just the embroidery on the scarf and foil on the tee matching would have looked better. And maybe tucking the tee into the jeans!

Just one of those outfits where you love all the pieces individually but you're not too sure they all work together in one outfit!

This was a comfortable outfit though, and quite quick to pull together as I was in a rush to get the boys out the house. Still at that point where we try to do things in the morning and get home in time for naptime!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Followed a similar outfit formula to the one above, with a waterfall drape cardigan, skinny jeans and a foil print tee. I liked this outfit much more though - perhaps because of how much I love blue and purple together. I liked the outfit so much that when I spilled a little something on it while rushing out the door and it wouldn't brush off with just water I just rearranged the scarf to hide it, ha!

This taupe skull scarf isn't just a good stain hider, it's also a nice neutral with the colourful navy cardigan, purple jeans and aquamarine mini MAC bag.

We got to playgroup to discover that it was a messy play day - it had completely slipped my mind and so I cringed every time one of the boys covered my outfit in something else sticky. They had a blast though, and true to the lovely organiser's words, all of the food colouring and flour and stains washed out of our clothes after. Even that stain I'd spilled on my tee before we left the house!

Foil Print Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Foil print tees are a fun addition to your wardrobe. They feel a little dressier than a plain tee, but are still just as easy to wear. On a colder day, just add a scarf, cardigan and skinny jeans for an easy mum-friendly outfit.
