Have been wanting to try pink with this jacket since I bought it. While I was contemplating the purchase, I kept thinking if it would really work in my wardrobe. And of course I could see it with greys and blacks and cream...and then I remembered this pink top. Just had to give this a try, as I love pink and blue together. And my favourite jeans of course ;) Glad it's not too cold so I can wear a tank in the office and just a jacket over the top outdoors.

I spent a little bit of time this weekend trying to figure out how to organise my wardrobe better.

I really liked it with the scarf and boots, what do you think?

Printed Tanks, Flared Jeans, Grey Cardigans and Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bags

Life with two boys under 2 is busy and hectic, and a cross body bag means I've always got everything I need handy. I've been favouring my Rebecca Minkoff cross body bags lately. While I do have other cross body bags, the Rebecca Minkoff ones are small enough that they are easy to juggle with a baby bag, toddler, newborn and often a stroller.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | printed Tank, Flared Jeans, ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff cross body saddle bag

AwayFromBlue |  Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red
Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Tank: Emerson crochet lace bib print top
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I loved everything about this outfit! A rainy night and a cooler morning was the perfect chance to wear this grey cardi, and I really wanted to wear the red tank and bag together. Although I was just running a few errands, I was comfortable and happy in this all day.

The flowy tank is great for covering a postbaby belly and I was able to lift it up and still have plenty of coverage while breastfeeding in the afternoon when the in-laws came over.

This cardigan had been in the 'maybe donate' pile for a while, as it's been so long since I last wore it. It was last on the blog over 3 years ago! I've taken it to work a few times since then to keep cosy in the aircon but wasn't sure it was worth keeping, until loving it in this outfit. It will be staying in my wardrobe.


Last worn: grey cardi, red crochet detail tank, flared jeans, Marc Jacobs ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to weargrey cardi in the office, red printed tank and striped maxi skirt, flared jeans and Converse, Marc Jacobs ballet flats and a maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag and a striped skirt.






More Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bags:








What I wore:

Away From Blue | Aztec Print tank, flares, gold mouse flats, wool cardi autumn SAHM style

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum
JacketJeanswest Alice longline Australian wool cardigan (new purchase)
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in navy!)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit combination above so much, I decided to try recreate it on another day with a different bag, tank and cardigan. I really didn't like this outfit as much though.

While the wool cardi was nice and cosy and I usually love wearing this tank, I felt it wasn't really working with my extra post-baby curves lifting it up and kept fussing with the hem of the tank trying to pull it down. A nice outfit in theory, but not so practical to wear.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Aztec print tank, flared jeans (above), gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff plum mini MAB tote. First time I've worn the cardigan as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearAztec print tank and red jeans, flares and a blazer, gold mouse flats and a Chloe Paddington, purple mini MAB and a pink maxi dress.

2 Ways to Wear a Red Cross Body Bag ~ Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag

I have been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag so much since I bought it...while it might be a little repetitive seeing it pop up all the time, I haven't had a reason to swap it out for another one of my many handbags because I'm finding it really does go with everything.

Two different outfits below showing how easy it is to wear a red cross body bag.

What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Floral cocoon Kimono jeans easy breastfeeding / nursing outfit
Singlet: Best and Less black breastfeeding singlet
JeansSass and Bide  'neon nights' jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in navy!)
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

Wore this to sit on the sidelines of toddler T's swimming lessons. Have to wait until my 6 week postpartum checkup before I can get the all clear to do any exercising other than walking and the exercises the physio gives you in hospital. I'm looking forward to getting back in the water though!

Thought the colourful floral print on this kimono would look nice with the red saddle bag. I really liked the combination. The kimono works nicely as a little nursing cover when breastfeeding too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, floral cocoon kimono, black breastfeeding tank, Sass & Bide skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Other ways to wearfloral kimono and a mint teeblack nursing tank and a maxi skirt, Sass & Bide skinny jeans and a graphic tee, gold mouse flats and a Chloe paddingtonRebecca Minkoff saddle bag with a maxi skirt.







More cute red cross body bags:








What I wore:

AwayFromBlue | Grey graphic tee pleated skirt red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag

Away From The Blue | Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red
SunniesRay-Ban new Wayfarers (30% off at Nordstrom!)
TeeGrey 'making magic happen' tee C/O Shein
Skirt: Vintage black pleated skirt from my Mum's closet
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
Bag:  Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red

Why I wore it:

It's been such a long time since I've worn this skirt! It used to belong to my mum, one of the few vintage pieces of clothing I have in my wardrobe. Thought that they grey slogan tee would work nicely with it, in theory. I didn't really like the oversized top and voluminous pleated skirt when I wore it though, not my favourite outfit. I felt I was constantly tugging at this through the day - especially in the waiting room of the doctors trying to calm a cranky baby with everyone staring...

I did like the colours in this outfit though - the neutral black and grey makes the red cross body bag really pop. A nice way to wear it, I've worn it with an all black outfit before too.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers (above), Making magic happen tee, pleated maxi skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag (above).

Ombre Knit, Burgundy Pants, Balenciaga Sang Clutch | Grey Tee, Red Skinnies, Chloe Bag

Here's what I wore to go shopping on Saturday:

Ombre grey knit burgundy skinny pants balenciaga clutch mbmj studded flats

Balenciaga sang giant silver flat clutch double wrap pearly grey bracelet

TopJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit in 'pavement' (New purchase)
Jeans: Jeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats in grey
Bracelets: the usual plus gifted Balenciaga classic pearly grey double tour bracelet
BagBalenciaga flat clutch GSH in 2010 Sang


This jumper is one of my purchases from the Jeanswest 40% off sale back in May. It was a sunny but windy day so this was the perfect outfit.  Thought the burgundy of the pants and the red of the clutch would go well together.

I had been considering buying this knit and then when I caught up with my sister she showed me she had bought it and told me how much she liked it. So I had to get my own when the sale came around, of course. My sister and I have very similar tastes!

I'm not always quick to post about new sales, so I made a new page to contain all of the sales and coupon codes I know about, feel free to bookmark it! I post on twitter when I update it. Most recently it's had the Matches Fashion 50% off sale added. Check it out, they have some lovely Alexander McQueen scarves reduced.


Last worn: burgundy pants, studded mouse flats, Balenciaga flat clutch. First time I've worn the jumper on the blog as it was a recent purchase.

This is another one of my Church Online team tees, I've worn one previously. It's a little big on me, but makes it even more comfortable to wear! Every year they come up with a new design, I'm pleased to see my collection build with each year I spend on the team.

Apart from working in the evening, didn't do much today. Enjoyed the slightly warmer weather in the afternoon and made sure to spend lots of time with Cooper. He's healing really well, thank you for all your kind comments on my previous post.

Wardrobe Inventory | 6 Months Without Shopping Update 2

Another month over, another month of my #6MonthsWithoutShopping challenge completed!

Just like last month, I managed to avoid the sales and stores most of the time. The continuing heatwaves meant playdates at home in the aircon and so there was no shopping temptations from meeting up in Westfield. Unsubscribing from emails from online stores has helped keep temptation at bay as well.

The biggest help in avoiding shopping has been the boys though! Their naps have gone from sometimes lining up to never lining up so it's extremely difficult to waste time online 'just browsing' shopping sites. That has been the major factor to make this month another easy month for avoiding shopping. I feel it's made me a bad blogger too as it's so hard to read other blogs but baby routines change so much, it's only temporary.


Two years ago I did a wardrobe inventory. I wanted to do one last year but never seemed to find the time. I'd like to make it an annual thing. In 2015, I had 101 accessories and 266 items of clothing.

Since then I have had many more declutter sessions, a wardrobe detox with a personal stylist and another pregnancy. I was interested to see how the count would have changed this year. The totals below doesn't include things like pieces I only wear for layering, pyjamas and loungewear.


Wardrobe Inventory Closet Count for 2017 | Away From Blue Style Blogger

2017 Closet Totals


Accessories:


30 scarves

29 bags










24 pairs of shoes

  • 8 pairs flats
  • 1 pair of wedges
  • 3 pairs of heels
  • 2 pairs of Converse
  • 3 sandals 
  • 2 pairs of thongs (flip flops)
  • 5 pairs of boots


Clothes:


97 tops, including

  • 15 fitted tanks
  • 21 other tanks
  • 24 nongrey tees
  • 7 grey tees
  • 9 long sleeve tops
  • 6 shirts
  • 5 camis

6 jumpers

8 cardigans

20 jackets, including

  • 3 blazers
  • 7 kimonos
  • 3 leather jackets
  • 2 trench coats

16 pairs of jeans

  • 1 set of flares
  • 2 printed jeans
  • 13 skinny jeans

4 pairs of shorts

19 skirts

  • 8 maxi skirts
  • 1 a line skirt
  • 10 pencil skirts

41 dresses, including

  • 3 wrap dresses
  • 11 maxi dresses
  • 17 office dresses



Final totals:


83 accessories
211 items of clothing
294 pieces


My wardrobe had 367 items in 2015 so 294 is a step in the right direction! I do try to share my wardrobe edits on the blog when I've given something its last wear and it is leaving my wardrobe. Sometimes I never give pieces a final wear and I don't like them when I try them on or I remember I didn't like them last time I wore them and so I donate or sell them.

It's wonderful that I've managed to reduce the number of bags and scarves but I'm surprised I've increased the number of shoes I own! I'm disappointed I have so many dresses, after I got rid of a few at the end of the Frocktober challenge. It's good to see I've halved the number of grey tees though.


How Many Outfits?


Since I'm attempting the #30Wears challenge this year I thought it would be interesting to calculate how many outfits I'd have in my wardrobe if I tried to get 30 wears from everything. Keeping it simple as maths isn't my strong point, just looking at tops and dresses and not outfit combinations:

30 wears from 41 dresses is 1,230 outfits. Almost 3 and a half years of outfits. 
30 wears from 97 tops is 2,910 outfits. Almost 8 years of outfits.


And I frequently think I have nothing to wear, wow...😮

If I was to just focus on getting 30 wears out of everything I currently own, I wouldn't need to buy any new clothes for around 11 years. Somehow 6 months without shopping seems like a very short time. You can be sure I'll be looking back at these numbers when I'm tempted to buy something, to help me stick to my no-shopping challenge for the next 4 months.



I really liked looking at how my wardrobe has changed in 2 years and if you enjoyed seeing it too I'll attempt another inventory next year. If you've done a similar count please leave a link to your post in the comments, I'd love to read it.

Zombie Walk: Failed Tie-Dye Tunic, Grey Shorts, Yellow Sunnies

Here's what I wore to take part in the Brisbane Zombie Walk today:


Sunnies: Yellow sunglasses from the Ekka
Bracelets: the usual plus two metal and fabric Indigo Rose Design bracelets
Top: thrifted no label failed tie-dye tunic (new purchase)
Shorts: grey Cotton On shorts
Shoes: brown Roxy thongs
BagChloe paddington cross body clutch

Close up of accessories and a little bit more fake blood:


Went to the Brisbane Zombie Walk today with my friend and DH. Although I'm not really into Halloween or costumes, it was very fun.

I spotted this tunic top when thrifting the other week, we named it the "failed tie-dye top". We knew it would be perfect for the zombie walk when I tried it on and the SA said it looked like a meat dress and was making her ill! Added some fake blood courtesy of the festival "splatterhouse marquee" and some shorts underneath to stop it being indecent. Was a great light costume to wear on such a hot day and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

There are other zombie walks around Australia this month, worth checking out to see if there is one near you as it's a very strange but fun way to spend the day! You can see more pictures I took on instagram here.

DH also managed to take a video near the start of the walk - you can see my friend and I in it too.



The sunnies were last worn here, and bag here. It's the first time I've worn the top, and the first time I've worn the shorts and thongs on the blog.
