Lilac, Blush and Blue Outfits With Navy Stripes And Darren Bag

Sharing two outfits I wore for the last week of the summer school holidays back at the start of February, with similar colour schemes but two very different resulting looks. Both have navy stripes, lilac and blue with my blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.


What I wore:

navy stripe shorts with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: rose gold and turquoise beaded necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Shorts: Jeanswest Valerie yarn dye stripe short in navy and white
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with Oroton scarf (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

This was such a hot and humid day, and while I did try take the kids out to the playground early I knew the summer heat would be fierce so I thought shorts and a tee was the simplest outfit for the temps. I really liked this outfit. I wore these navy stripe culotte shorts a lot last summer but they were a bit neglected this summer - this outfit reminded me of why I love them. They go with so much!

I decided to tuck in the lilac v-neck tee to show off the cute paper bag waist and bow belt on these shorts, although as hard as I tried that morning I just couldn't get a cute bow, haha! It kept coming undone through the day. The striped Adidas Superstar sneakers were an obvious choice with the striped culotte shorts, and I added the turquoise and gold necklace for another little extra touch of blue.

I'd added an Oroton scarf I thrifted to the handle of my Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag for something a bit different with it! Thought the bright blue was nice with the blush pink of the bag.


Last worn: lilac tee, turquoise and gold necklace, navy striped culottes, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren bag.

Rebecca Minkoff Darren Review And What's In My Bag:






What I wore:

tonal blue outfit with tee and navy striped maxi skirt, lilac necklace, blue rebecca minkoff darren messenger bag | awayfromblue

navy stripe maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue



Necklace: thrifted purple wooden bead statement necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Shelley garment dye tee in faded denim blue
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony with Oroton scarf (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

This was a few days after I wore the shorts outfit above, after we had some storms come in and cool things off a bit which was very welcome! I was worried things might still be a little wet so we avoided the playground this time and I took the kids to a bike track. My son fell off his bike and landed in a big dirty puddle which wasn't ideal though! Thankfully no damage to him or the bike, just a few muddy clothes.

I went with this navy striped maxi skirt in case the day was colder than I expected but it warmed up quite nicely. This skirt was the perfect layer to cover up with. I like doing monochromatic outfits with it and I hadn't worn this particular blue tee with it before so it seemed like a good choice for the skirt's 33rd wear! I shared 30 ways to wear a navy striped maxi skirt with this skirt recently, it's such a staple in my wardrobe. 

With all the blue I felt I needed to introduce a little more colour in my accessories as well. This lilac statement necklace was an awesome thrift find and was so perfect with this tee! Just like with the first outfit, I like pink and purple and blue together, so the blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag was another good accessory choice. We headed to the library and to pick up some groceries after the bike track so I had the big reusable Woolies tote bag with us for snacks and water bottles.

As you can see the scarf was starting to unravel on my bag here! I ended up taking it off at the end of the day, it didn't seem to stick on all that well. I think I'll need to watch a how-to video next time I attempt this.



How You Can Wear It:

Navy is a great neutral that goes with so many other colours! I like pairing it with pastel shades of pink and purple. As you can see here blush pink and lilac look really good with both these navy striped pieces.

White Tees, Blue Maxi Skirts and Blush Pink Darren Bag

A maxi skirt and tee is an easy outfit formula to repeat over and over, and I've certainly been doing so lately! I recently wore these two blue maxi skirts with sneakers and some white tees, and added a little extra colour with my blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag.


What I wore:

white abstract printed tee with chambray maxi skirt and blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag | awayfromblue

chambray maxi skirt and  Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue


Necklace: rose gold and turquoise beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart abstract blob print tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

Wore this for another park day with the kids. It was a bit of a strange day, cloudy and threatening to rain, so I figured we'd best get to the playground as early as possible hoping to get some energy out before the rain set in.

This abstract print tee is a fun thrift find that was definitely overdue a wear, and this chambray maxi skirt I scored on sale a few years ago was overdue a wear too! I hit 30 wears with it a while back and it's a keeper in my wardrobe! I liked the pastel blues in the print of the tee with the chambray of the skirt, and the blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag matched the blush in the print of the tee nicely too. The turquoise beaded necklace is a different shade from the pastel blue in the tee but I still thought it was a nice combination.

This was comfortable and suitably covered up for our time at the playground - last time I was there I struggled finding suitably shady spots to sit and watch the kids play at times so I liked the physical sunblock on my legs with the long maxi skirt.

TeeJimmy Rees Pfiiiiizer darling vaxed tee (Christmas gift)
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

This is my second Jimmy Rees Pfiiizer tee! I may have tagged a few people in his videos over 2020 and 2021, so I was spoiled with a few things from his merch line for Christmas! Much like the last time I wore my grey Pfiiizer tee, I knew exactly when I would wear this one! It was a quiet working from home day, with a little break in the afternoon to head out and get my booster jab. I figured the tee would make the doctor or nurse smile!

The white tee matches the white stripes on this navy maxi skirt perfectly, and the red print adds a little extra colour, but I still felt this needed more so I added the blush Darren bag for a subtle touch of colour, and the bright blue Converse too. This tee and maxi skirt combination was so comfortable for working from home, and I just added the accessories when I went out for my appointment.


Last worn: navy stripe maxi skirt, blue Converse, blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag (above). First time I've worn the tee as it was a Christmas gift.

Other ways to wearnavy stripe maxi skirt in monochrome outfit, blue Converse and pink dress, blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag and midi dress.




How You Can Wear It:

Blue and white always work well together, and most people have a classic white tee in their wardrobe. You can easily pair a printed white tee with a plain maxi skirt as I have in the first outfit, or introduce a little extra print with a striped skirt like in the second outfit. Like white tees, stripes go with everything!

Blue Printed Maxi Skirts, Text Tees And Rebecca Minkoff Tote

Two very comfortable outfits I wore back in January when I was recovering from my wisdom teeth surgery. Simple text tees, printed maxi skirts, sneakers and the always practical Rebecca Minkoff studded unlined tote bag.


What I wore:

The Collective Store Love Local tee in black with tote bag and blue tie dye maxi skirt summer shopping outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware on shoulder | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | The Collective Store Love Local tee in black with tie dye maxi skirt

TeeThe Collective Store Love Local tee in black
Skirt: Jeanswest Farrah blue tie dye maxi skirt 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware


Why I wore it:

Wore this tee for a little bit of local shopping! While I'd been stuck at home for almost a week recovering from surgery I'd anticipated feeling better on this day so I'd booked the kids in for a school holiday workshop a few weeks prior, and then we set off to get some essentials that we hadn't been able to get in our regular grocery shop due to the explosion of Covid cases. While the big supermarkets had very little choice and a lot of empty shelves, as hoped for all the local independent stores and the IGA had what we needed. It really pays to shop local!

Had an appointment with the surgeon in the afternoon to check up on post-surgery complications and see why my recovery wasn't going as well as expected too.

Thought this Love Local tee would be a very appropriate one to wear for the day, and I really just wanted an easy and comfortable outfit as I anticipated having to travel around a few shops to get what we needed. This oversized tee tucks in nicely to the tie dye maxi skirt and I like black and blue together. The black Converse and black Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote bag matched it nicely as well.


Last worn: Love Local tee, tie dye maxi skirt, black Converse, Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote.

Other ways to wearLove Local tee worn knotted, tie dye maxi skirt and denim jacket, black Converse and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote and dress.

awayfromtheblue instagram | Jimmy Rees Pfiiiiizer darling vaxed tee with navy stripe maxi skirt tote bag

Tee: Jimmy Rees Pfiiiiizer darling vaxed tee (Christmas gift)
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
BagRebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware


Why I wore it:

Didn't take a proper photo of this outfit in my back yard as usual! This was only a couple days after surgery and my face was still significantly swollen up. Thank goodness you couldn't tell once I had the face mask on! We took the kids out that morning for their first vaccine, as they were only eligible for it here from the 10th January. I really wasn't feeling great and slept a lot when we got home but I'd booked the first slot I could for them, knowing it was close to my surgery date but that being a bit sore and uncomfortable was a small thing to deal with to make sure they were vaccinated.

I'd planned my outfit in advance as I knew I'd not have the energy that morning! Again, like the above it was a simple text tee with a printed maxi skirt. This navy striped skirt goes with everything and it worked well with my Pfiiizer tee that my sister got me for Christmas. (Jimmy Rees being an Australian treasure!) I thought it fitting to wear for the kids vaccine appointment, it made me smile! 

The black Rebecca Minkoff tote bag again was a good practical choice as it fits everyone's water bottles inside easily. The little reusable tote bag was one they gave the kids with some activities and stickers for while they were waiting around before leaving the venue, which was helpful.


Last worn: navy stripe maxi skirt, blue Converse, Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote (above). First time I've worn the tee as it was a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearnavy stripe maxi skirt and denim jacket, blue Converse and denim skirt, Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote and dress.


How You Can Wear It:

Just like shorts and a tee, a maxi skirt and tee is an equally comfortable summer outfit! A fun printed one can add a little interest to a neutral grey or black tee as I've worn here.

Camis And Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Love Too Bag

Trying an outfit combo I don't wear as often as I used to, pairing cami tops with maxi skirts. And accessorising with my little Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag in deep teal. The bag works well with both these outfits even though they have different colours.


What I wore:

white pleated ruffle cami with pink blue floral print maxi skirt sandals love too bag summer mum style | awayfromblue

blue floral maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | white ruffle cami with floral print maxi skirt love too bag

Earrings: Kmart teal tassel earrings
Necklace: thrifted pearl and heart charm long necklace
Top: Jeanswest 'Maria' cami in cream
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

With the pleated ruffle cami and the silky maxi skirt this outfit felt a little overdressed for a quiet Monday. We had the school run, sports and a playdate. I thought the cream cami was so nice with this floral print maxi skirt though, I was eager to pair the two together.  It has been a while since this ruffle cami was last worn too, definitely deserved another outing!

The necklace helped dress this outfit up more as well I felt, especially with the teal tassel earrings too. I thought they were a great match for the deep teal Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag. Even if it was a little dressier than my usual outfits, and a bit more dressed up than the day needed, I really liked this outfit. 


Last worn: ruffle cami, teal tassel earrings, heart charm necklace, floral maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag.

Other ways to wearruffle cami and printed jeans, floral maxi skirt and pink tee, studded sandals and maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag and denim.

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Cami: H&M mint v-neck cami
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

The casual jersey material of this maxi skirt made it feel a little more dressed down than the outfit above. I love this mint cami with blue and you can't go wrong with stripes, it looks great with the navy striped maxi skirt. Added the navy beaded necklace for a little matchy-matchy too.

Not the first time I've worn this cami and the teal bag together either, I really like the combination. Although once again I found myself wishing I'd tucked this cami in when I look back at the photos! I thought that last time I wore it too.

Just like the first outfit above, I went with simple studded sandals again. After the school run we had a couple errands to do and then we spent a bit of time at our favourite library again before school pick up in the afternoon.


Last worn: mint cami, blue and gold necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, studded sandals (above), Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

A simple cami is a nice combination with a more casual maxi skirt - no matter what colour combinations you choose. You can't go wrong with a plain block colour cami and a printed skirt.

Casual Christmas Maxi Skirt Outfits

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 

Sharing two casual Christmas maxi skirt outfits I wore recently. The first one for our annual Christmas Eve family day, the second for a couple of Christmas parties. It has been a fun but busy December with all the get togethers.


What I wore:

casual Christmas eve outfit navy stripe maxi skirt festive reindeer tee red saddle bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red with festive ribbon bracelet navy stripe maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | festive christmas reindeer tee and navy stripe maxi skirt red saddle bag Christmas eve outfit

Earrings: Colette Ciao Bella glitter ball drop earrings
NecklaceSilhoupette gold plated Shih Tzu necklace
Tee: Merry Christmas reindeer antler tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Christmas ribbon bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red


Why I wore it:

This is what I wore on Christmas eve. The past few years I've worn the same tee on Christmas eve that my sister bought as part of a new tradition, a festive glitter Santa tee. This year I wanted to wear this reindeer tee mum made me - she made matching ones for us all, even the kids. I'd already worn this tee to the Christmas night at Movie Word theme park, and I knew that since it went so well with my red printed maxi skirt then, it would work well with this navy striped maxi skirt too.

This was the same skirt I wore last Christmas eve too - it's a very comfortable stretchy skirt. Perfect for Christmas crafts (machine washable!), making and decorating cookies, and for eating a lot of delicious food, spending time with family, and watching a Christmas movie. Once again we watched the Polar Express, as requested by my sons!

The little red saddle bag fit my wallet, phone, keys and camera, and was a nice matchy-matchy option with the red print on the tee.


Last worn: reindeer Christmas tee, gold bauble earrings, gold necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, red studded saddle bag.

Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey


Why I wore it:

This was another fun, but very hot day, before the one above. We had a kids Christmas party in the afternoon and then a Christmas party with friends in the evening. Which we ended up having to leave early from unfortunately because the kids were just worn out from the huge day!

I figured with two parties in one day it was a good time to get this sequin tank out again. I've worn it to a Christmas party before, and to the office. It's the kind of piece you can wear year-round but it seems extra festive at Christmas time. I thought the black sequins would be so nice with this black maxi skirt. It's perfect for a hot day even though it's a dark colour because it's super light viscose. And thankfully it is easy to wash after there was lots of delicious food dropped and smeared all over it (at both parties!).



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt is a great option on a hot day, especially if it's from a light material or has a slit up the side. Perfect for a backyard party, or a quiet day visiting family, they are easy to dress up or down.

Blue Printed Maxi Skirts, Pink Bags and V-Neck Tees

More simple outfits with a mum staple, a classic v neck tee! Wearing colourful tees and blue printed maxi skirts, with my Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag and Converse.


What I wore:


navy striped maxi skirt with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony  | awayfromblue



Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in azalea pink
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

I had planned to wear this maxi skirt for Monday but I was a little unsure with the rain forecast! Luckily while it did rain this maxi skirt isn't a floor brushing length so it stayed dry. A striped maxi skirt is a staple and in a neutral navy it goes with so much in my wardrobe, I'm going to hit 30 wears on it next year for sure. As I really like blue and pink together I wanted to wear this pink v-neck tee with the navy skirt. Surprisingly it's the first time I've worn the two pieces together despite my love for pink and blue.

While the bright pink of the tee looks great against the navy, so does this little blush Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag. The blush pink works well with both the bright pink and the navy, it's a really versatile shade of pink.

Wore my comfortable Converse for a little bit of running around with the school run, sports for the little one, and then sports for both kids in the evening after school pick up.


Last worn: pink tee, silver circle necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, white Converse, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag.

Other ways to wearpink tee and shorts, navy stripe maxi skirt in monochrome outfit, white Converse and printed jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Darren messenger bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyConverse in second trimester.


Review and What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Darren





What I wore:

blue tie dye skirt, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue


Necklace: thrifted gold large double circle necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: Jeanswest Farrah blue tie dye maxi skirt 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony (more affordable preowned!)


Why I wore it:

Again with another blue printed maxi skirt and the same blush pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag. Like the navy skirt in the first outfit, the blush pink works so well with the lighter blue tie dye print on this maxi skirt. I added another colour to this outfit too with the lilac v-neck tee. Pink, purple and blue are such a lovely trio together!

I wasn't too sure at first about the gold statement circle necklace with the silver hardware on the Darren bag, but I really wanted to wear my new-to-me necklace I picked up at the opshop as soon as possible! It was a nice accessory with the lilac tee and I think the mixed metals worked. Again I went with Converse, blue ones this time to match the light tie dye on the skirt.

Another nice colourful and comfortable outfit, it was a very humid day so I was glad we were able to enjoy the aircon in church that morning!


Last worn: lilac tee, tie dye maxi skirt, blue Converse, Rebecca Minkoff peony small Darren bag (above). First time I've worn the gold necklace as it was a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearlilac tee and culottes, tie dye maxi skirt in monochrome outfit, blue Converse and tee dress, Rebecca Minkoff peony small Darren bag and pink dress.

Perfect for pregnancy: lilac tee in second trimester.


How You Can Wear It:

Pink and blue are lovely together in any shades, as you can see in these two outfits with the different shades of blue. For something a little different you can add in a third colour as well! Lilac works equally well with pink and blue.

V-Neck Tees and Maxi Skirts With Chloe Small Paraty: Weekday Wear Link Up

Two easy v-neck tees and maxi skirts outfits I wore back in October, for some really warm spring days.


What I wore:

lilac v-neck tee with blue floral print maxi skirt converse and chloe periwinkle paraty bag | awayfromtheblue

floral maxi skirt with Chloe periwinkle small Paraty bag | away from the blue



Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: Ally Fashion blue border print floral maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

When I was putting this tee away in my wardrobe I was trying to think of another way I could rewear it next time, as I want to hit 30 wears with it soon. I realised that despite loving the trio of purple, pink and blue together, surprisingly I hadn't yet worn this skirt with it! It seems like such an obvious combo so I was glad I could give these two pieces a wear together. The accessories seemed like a no brainer too, the blush necklace went nicely with the pastel pink in the floral print of the skirt, as did the periwinkle Chloe Paraty bag even though it's a slightly different shade of blue from the print. The Converse were another way to get more blue into my outfit!

Had a stressful morning as I had to get a blood test and I don't like needles, but after that was over we went out to a little local event with the kids. It was a super hot day so we didn't stay long, just a couple of hours, but they enjoyed exploring somewhere new and we bought a few things at the market stalls. They had some second hand books for just $1, and the boys got some more of the Weirdo series they love so they were really happy. The Chloe small Paraty bag was a great one for the essentials, including our water bottles and a little reusable tote for our market purchases. It holds a lot despite the small size!


Last worn: lilac tee, blush tassel necklace, floral print maxi skirt, blue Converse, Chloe periwinkle Paraty bag.

Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star coast blue
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

This was a busy day! After the school run I had a doctor's appointment, and then I took the little one to the library. We decided not to go to the playground after as we usually would as it was far too warm mid-morning, so it was home to relax a little and have lunch before another appointment in the afternoon to get my tax done and then picking up my eldest from school. Not the most fun day, but at least we enjoyed the library in the morning.

I wanted to try this white tee with this striped maxi skirt - the texture it has on it with the fabric looks like a really subtle print and it makes it easy to try print mixing with. I enjoyed the combination last time I wore it with a printed maxi skirt too!

With the casual Converse and Chloe Paraty bag I'm not entirely sure that the long heart charm necklace was the right choice with this, maybe a little dressy compared to everything else, but I hadn't thought about what necklace to wear in advance and when I saw this hanging up that morning I felt it deserved another wear.


Last worn: textured white tee, heart charm necklace, navy white stripe maxi skirt, blue Converse (above), Chloe small Paraty bag (above).

Other ways to weartextured white tee and blazer, navy white stripe maxi skirt and mustard, blue Converse and striped dress, Chloe small Paraty bag and maxi dress.


How You Can Wear It:

Printed maxi skirts are spring staples, great for mum days. They work well with a v-neck tee for an easy casual outfit.

Spring: Stripes, Skirts and Printed Tees With LV Neverfull | Weekday Wear Link Up

Striped outfits with some skirts for the spring school holidays back in September! Wore these printed tees with skirts and my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag for a couple days out with the kids.


What I wore:

denim jacket with LV neverfull MM and thrifted outfit striped Coca-cola tee and rust ruffle mini skirt sneakers | awayfromblue

denim jacket worn with Louis Vuitton damier azur mm neverfull on shoulder | awayfromtheblue


Earrings: Piper gold heart earrings
Jacket
: Bubblegum denim jacket
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Skirt: thrifted no label rust ruffle tiered skirt
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD and Hermes Kelly double tour bracelet in rubis
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

A while back one of my Tiffany bracelets broke, so I had to take it back to a store to get repaired. We decided to make a day of it and head out to Pac Fair again. They had some school holiday fun for the kids to enjoy: a little putt putt golf course through the shopping centre that kept them amused between us popping into shops. Not the most relaxing day trying to shop multiple places with the kids in tow, but certainly fun and they really enjoyed it. Especially the ice cream after lunch!

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was just right for carrying all our water bottles and some snacks for the kids - and thankfully because it's mostly coated canvas, just got a bit of a clean and no ill effects when I forgot to tighten the lid on a water bottle. It started filling the bag up with water before I realised it was a bit wet!

It was a warmer spring day but I thought I might be a little too cold with just a tee and skirt in the aircon of the shopping centre, so I layered my denim jacket on top of this. We couldn't help noticing that despite the warmer day though a lot of the stores seemed to still have the heating on. It was really warm in the individual stores. Probably didn't need the denim jacket after all. I did like how it looked with this outfit though, I've worn the denim jacket with this striped Coca Cola tee before. Such a cute pairing with this thrifted skirt too - both the tee and skirt are $1 each opshop finds!

Why I wore it:

Another day of school holiday fun, this one a bit more tailored for the kids though! Took the boys for a haircut in the morning, and then a trip to a newly constructed park I'd wanted to check out for a while. It had a little bit of everything with slides, swings, climbing equipment, water play and a bike track. It was a hit and hard to get the kids to leave in the afternoon, but we had to get home and have dinner as we had evening sports to get to.

Just had an easy outfit for the day, with the first wearing of this Love Local tee I got as a lucky door prize at an event I went to a while back. It's a bit oversized but easily fixed by knotting it. I liked the black with the navy striped maxi skirt and the longer oversized sleeves covered up my shoulders well to provide some sun coverage. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was my bag of choice again, to fit all of our water bottles, snacks and essentials for our day out. It had dried out after the water bottle incident above which was a few days prior!


Last worn: navy stripe maxi skirt, blue Converse, Louis Vuitton Neverfull (above). First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

How You Can Wear It:

Stripes and skirts are a good alliterative combo! Tees and skirts are comfortable for running around with the kids all day, and longer maxi skirts work well for a trip to the playground.
