Olive Tops With Neon Pink Mini MAC Bag And Shorts

Olive and pink is a really nice combination - especially when you pair this very fun neon pink mini MAC bag with an olive top. It's a great little pop of colour with an otherwise neutral outfit. And a simple pair of shorts and olive top was all that was needed for these two heatwave filled days.

What I wore:

Top: Target embroidered khaki tank
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda shorts
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

It was good to get these white shorts out for another wear, as I thrifted them near the end of summer last year and they didn't get a lot of wear then. This was a relaxed day with only one appointment to go to after the school run and we spent most of the day at home, so these comfortable shorts paired with a slouchy embroidered tank was a nice idea. 

I've worn this neon pink mini MAC bag with the olive embroidered tank before, I really enjoyed the combination then and I liked it again this time too, although less layers were needed! I added the pink enamel bracelet for a little bit of matchy-matchy too!


Last worn: olive embroidered tank, neon pink enamel bracelet, white Bermuda shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC bag.

Adding Another Pink Handbag To My Collection!



In case you missed it, I bought this adorable little Rebecca Minkoff bag on sale last month, so now I've added another pink bag to my handbag collection!



What I wore:

NecklaceHouse of Harlow sunburst necklace in silver and grey
Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a busy day so I needed another easy and comfortable outfit - shorts and a tee was perfect, and the Converse were great for all of the running around. Had the school run, some errands to run, an appointment, and a very special Christmas gift to track down. End of the night was a takeaway and movie night as I was a bit tired out from trying to do so much!

The olive tee and black printed shorts was a nice neutral combination but even with the bracelet stack (which matches the tee nicely) and the silver statement necklace I felt this was missing something. The hot pink bag was the perfect finishing touch!





How You Can Wear It:

Green and pink is an unexpected combination but one that really works! Olive pairs nicely with blush and pastel pinks, or you can really contrast the pieces by picking a neon pink item instead, like this lovely bag.

Long Sleeve Tops and Shorts with Rebecca Minkoff Neon Pink Mini MAC

While waiting for autumn weather to arrive in Brisbane, I tried to make my outfits a little more autumn-like by wearing longer sleeved tops with my shorts. It's a good option for a day that's not too warm, not too cold.

I didn't love both of these outfits the same though, even though they followed the same outfit formula and I carried the same neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with them both.

What I wore:

ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC
NailsOPI Koala Bear-y

Why I wore it:

After spending a few days in bed unwell, on Friday I felt like getting out of the house. I was lucky to have my mum help me with the boys. It was school holidays so we took them along to one of the free activities at the shopping centre, a dinosaur exhibit. They both loved it! By the end of the day though, I was exhausted and felt I'd pushed myself a little too far - had a cruisy weekend after that!

I was so sure I'd worn this embroidered top and the blue soft shorts together before. With them being blue and white, and loving a bit of matchy matchy, I was so sure I'd have already worn them together. I was surprised to look through the blog and find out I hadn't! I really liked the combination. In the cooler morning and air conditioning at the shopping centre, the longer length sleeves were perfect. Of course I couldn't resist adding a little pop of colour, so brought out my neon pink mini MAC bag again. It's been a little while between wears, so it was definitely overdue a wear.


Last worn: embroidered blouse, blue printed shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC.

Why I wore it:

Following the same outfit formula as the one above, picking a longer sleeved top and pairing it with my soft shorts. I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above. It was a relaxed day with a couple of errands so loose light layers seemed like a good idea in the morning. It was also unfortunately a very hot and humid day, and I was wishing I hadn't gone with such a warm top! It was the last touch of summer before the rain and cooler autumn weather arrived, 32 degrees (90 fahrenheit).

I did like the colours of this outfit though - I love grey and pink together, and have started to try wearing olive and pink together too. The neon mini MAC was such a fun splash of colour. And it was a perfectly comfortable outfit for sitting around playing with the boys after we ran all our errands.

How You Can Wear It:


Long sleeved tops and shorts work well together in spring or autumn where it's not warm enough to bare arms and legs at the same time. If it does heat up through the day, you can always push or roll the sleeves on your top up too.

Grey Tees, Denim Shorts and Kimonos: Easy Mum Style

Sometimes the simplest outfits are the best! I love a good grey tee, and they are so nice with denim shorts. Throw on a printed kimono to feel a little more pulled together, and accessorise with a bright neon bag. Easy and perfect for a day with the kids!

What I wore:

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I needed a simple outfit for a stressful Monday so I fell back on my much loved outfit formula. To accessorise I just decided to pick everything pink as there is some pink in the floral print of the kimono. even though everything was a different shade of pink, I think it all worked well together. I love the way this neon pink mini MAC bag pops with the grey tee and the navy kimono, it really shines against neutrals. It's such a frequent accessory choice when I wear this kimono!

It was a stressful start to the morning as we had an appointment to keep but my phone had died the day before so I was desperately hunting for a replacement phone around the appointment time. The kids behaved so well as I dragged them round store after store. I'd picked out a possible new phone for Christmas but decided against it, so I knew the model I wanted, but it wasn't as widely available as it was in December! Thankfully I tracked it down, at the sixth store we went to. Yes, 6. My boys were so patient, but it was a stressful morning for us all!

Why I wore it:

Looking a little flat here - I was starting to feel unwell and lose my voice, but I'd pre-booked a fun morning and I had to pick up a few last minute birthday party things for baby boy's birthday party the next day, so I pushed through.

Our morning started with messy play - I'd picked all these things to wear as they could be easily washed (as advised when I booked the tickets). I did not expect to have to wash the grey tee quite so quickly though, after I took pics there was an incident with a breakfast bowl and I had to quickly take this off, stuff it in the washing machine and find another grey tee to replace it. Luckily I have a few! 😂

Thankfully at the actual messy play I managed to keep my clothes clean - although the boys loved getting dirty and my legs were covered in green 'slime' at the end of it. Lots of fun! Complete change of clothes for them and a bit of a clean with baby wipes and we were ready to run around the shops and pick up all the last minute party things.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a wardrobe staple and you can never have too many! It looks great worn with denim shorts on a warmer day, and you can easily add more colour and interest with bright accessories or a printed kimono.

Printed Culotte Shorts With Plain Tops and Mini MAC Cross Body Bags

It's one of the simplest outfit formula rules to follow: if you're wearing a printed piece, pick a plain piece to go with it. I followed that rule for the two outfits below to create some easy summer outfits with very different colour schemes. I accessorised both with a colourful little Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

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

awayfromblue Instagram | mustard tank with pastel navy print culotte shorts and mint mini mac bag summer style

TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in chartreuse
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Colourful outfit for a hot and sunny day! We spent the morning by the bayside attending an event in the park. It was really hot and humid, but a lot of fun, and the sea breeze was quite nice. Much better at cooling us than our aircon at home, which had sadly given up during the summer heatwave and we were having troubles repairing. It was out of action for over 2 weeks!

I picked a fun and colourful outfit for the fun day - when I saw these printed shorts in the Kmart clearance sale (they were just $5!) I knew I wanted to wear them with the mustard tank, even though the yellow in the print is more of a pastel. I liked this combination even more than the first time I wore these shorts!

I added a little extra colour with my aqua mini MAC bag - I didn't need to carry much for myself as the event was entirely free. I brought my wallet just in case but didn't need it. I did however decide at the last minute to put my hair up and forgot to then sunscreen my exposed back and neck - that was a painful reminder I need to review my use of sunscreen if I change my hairstyle before I leave the house! I was sunburnt and sore for days.

Why I wore it:

This was the day we finally got the aircon repaired, yey! Had a quiet morning at the park with the boys, ran a couple of errands picking up some groceries and some wrapping paper to wrap the birthday presents for a party the next day. I have plenty of Christmas wrapping paper, but was a little low on birthday paper!

Was so thankful for having the aircon fixed that afternoon - it's such a blessing to have aircon in the heat and you really notice when it's gone! (Big thanks to New Venture Brisbane who finally fixed it for us. Not sponsored, just very thankful for them!)

I followed the same outfit formula as above, with a pair of fun soft printed shorts and then a plain top. This grey tee is a firm favourite, and created a nice monochromatic outfit with the black print. It did feel a little flat though, a the navy tassel necklace blended in a bit with the tee. The neon pink mini MAC bag was the perfect touch of colour with it all to brighten it up a bit.

Other ways to weargrey tee and red maxi skirt, black printed shorts and kimono, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC and purple cardigan.

Printed Culotte Shorts Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Soft shorts are a summer staple, perfect for a hot and humid day. To keep things simple, pick a plain tank or tee to wear with them. You can go monochromatic like in the second outfit, or bolder and pick a colour out of the print to wear on top. A bright cross body handbag is always a good way to accessorise too.

2 Ways to Wear: Khaki Embroidered Peasant Tank and Jeans

Last month while out shopping with Beth we stopped by Target on the way home. I spotted this tank while browsing the sales racks. A neutral colour, flowy fabric, generously sized enough to fit my very different postpartum curves and just $10, it came home with me.

To ensure I'm buying things I'll actually wear, I have a goal of wearing everything I buy at least twice in a month after purchasing. Below are the two ways I've worn this tank so far. Both outfits accessorised with another new purchase, my hot pink mini MAC bag. I love the neon pink with the neutral khaki.

What I wore:

khaki embroidered peasant tank striped duster flared jeans winter boho style | AwayFromBlue

silver bracelet stack, Rebecca Minkoff hot pink mini MAC bag | AwayFromTheBlue
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
Top: Target embroidered khaki tank
JeansJeanswest 'spoylt' flared jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in grey)
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

First time wearing this tank and I knew I wanted to pair it with this striped cardi and flares. I think this outfit would have looked even better with wedges, and maybe a felt hat...but neither of those things were practical for getting groceries with two boys under 2.


Last worn: striped duster, flared jeans, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff hot pink Mini MAC bag. First time I've worn the tank as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearstriped duster and grey dress, flared jeans and Converse, black ballet flats in the office, Rebecca Minkoff hot pink Mini MAC bag and a floral kimono.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | AwayFromTheBlue
Jacket: Jeanswest brown marle waterfall cardigan
Tank: Target embroidered khaki tank
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This was another outfit I had in mind when I was contemplating buying the tank. I thought the brown would look nice with the khaki. After putting it on I wasn't too sure about the embroidery with the print on the cardi, but gave it a go anyway. Comfortable for errands in the morning and spending time with the in-laws in the afternoon.


Since it's the second time I've worn this tank, my purchase review:

This was a complete impulse buy (I didn't even try it on). I'm glad I picked it up though. Brisbane winters are usually mild enough that I can still wear a sleeveless tank with enough layers, and I really like the embroidery detail. Getting a size larger than usual and it being a pretty relaxed cut to start with means it's really flowy, but I think it works with the style of top and it means I'm still quite covered when I lift one side up to breastfeed. I've got lots of other outfit ideas for this tank too, a sign of a great purchase. Really pleased I got this.

While it was an impulse buy, I did stop and take a few minutes to think about how I'd wear the tank and how it would work in my wardrobe before I bought it. I'm pleased that I'm getting into the habit now of thinking things through before I buy them, and reviewing them after I wear them means I better be able to prove it's a good purchase. Really pleased I've made this a shopping habit so I'm more mindful of what I buy.


It's the third time I've shared this pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag too. A nice short purchase review: I have a few mini MAC bags now, so I knew this would be a winning purchase! Really happy with it.

Striped Maxi Skirts, Tees and Rebecca Minkoff Hot Pink Mini MAC Bag

Wearing a different bag for a change! In October when I bought my Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan bag I wore it right away and have been wearing it for a while, so it was nice to switch things up a little and carry a different bag. Still a Rebecca Minkoff one though, it's quickly become my go-to bag brand!

These outfits were wonderful to wear and I really liked both - the hot pink bag works nicely with a blue outfit as well as a neutral black and grey one.

What I wore:

blue tee white navy stripe maxi skirt SAHM spring outfit | Away From Blue

stripe maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Kmart blue marle tee
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoes: black slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This striped maxi skirt was one of the outfits I had in mind when I was thinking how I could wear this blue tee. I really liked the way it looked together, it was nice and simple for a quiet day with a couple of errands. It's great when outfits you put together in your head turn out just as good as you imagined them!

This is the second wearing of this tee, so as I'm doing with everything I buy, my purchase review:
I really like this tee. I wanted to add more basics to my wardrobe and at $3 I couldn't say no to this. I've only worn it with maxi skirts so far, looking forward to wearing it with more things. Really pleased I got this, fits my 'wardrobe wishlist' as it's a great basic.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the v-neck tee and striped maxi skirt outfit above, I wore it again with different pieces. This outfit was perfect for a morning attempting to go shopping with the boys. I shared a few pics on my instagram stories - I headed into Glue store to check out their denim range and try pick out a new pair or two. What you didn't see in the insta stories was how cranky both boys quickly got when I tried to take 10 minutes to try things on! Still haven't mastered the art of shopping in store for clothes with two little ones. Will probably wait a few more months before trying again...

At least my outfit was comfortable and didn't add to the stress levels of the morning, hehe!

Printed Dresses and Ankle Boots for Spring with Neon Pink Mini MAC Bag

Even though we had a pretty mild winter, it's always exciting to start wearing dresses with bare legs again. When it's the start of spring and still a little cooler, ankle boots are an essential.

My neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag is a cute and colourful accessory, but I don't just reserve it for spring, it works brilliantly year-round.

What I wore:

Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesRMK Chester black ankle boots
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was pretty in pink, which made the pink accessories an obvious choice. I love how the neon pink mini MAC looks with the little black dress too. It's funny, I was in Kmart the other day and saw that they have this same style dress in pink now. I still think this black dress will work nicely in spring and summer, but if you want something a little brighter for spring definitely check it out!

Wearing the denim jacket with the dress is one of the outfit combinations I thought of when I first bought this dress. I have so many outfit ideas still, definitely a good buy.

I just wore this to work from home and do the daycare drop off and pick up, but I added the teething necklace anyway. While I wasn't around the boys during the day, I love the colours of this necklace with the mini MAC bag, and the colour it adds to the black dress.

ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow sunburst wrap bracelet in cobalt
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

A warmer spring day so the extra layer of a denim jacket needed above wasn't necessary. Still good to have ankle boots on though, and the long sleeves of this dress came in handy. I felt this dress was due another wear. One of my favourite pieces a few years back, it's been neglected recently as it was boxed away during pregnancy and breastfeeding. With the thick fabric and longer sleeves, there might not be many more opportunities to wear it again this year so I took the chance while I could. This time I wore it is still one of my favourite outfits ever.

Was a busy morning, errands, groceries and taking toddler T for a haircut before going out for lunch followed by dinner at the inlaws in the evening. I ended up using my Ergo baby carrier in the backwards position so that I could back carry Baby Boy and still wear my bag easily without it slipping off my shoulder. I'm thrilled to have a new way to babywear after learning at the ABA mum's group recently.

Much like the dress, this cobalt bracelet hasn't been worn a lot recently. Last time was when I was pregnant! I didn't overly accessorise while Baby Boy was little, but now that the boys are getting bigger it's nice to pick out some extra bracelets to wear. Although teething necklaces are still the safest and most practical neckwear option to wear around the toddlers!


Last worn: navy stripe tee dress, Chelsea leather ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff pink mini MAC (above).

Perfect for pregnancy: stripe dress and second trimester bump, Chelsea ankle boots and chambray in second trimester.

How You can Wear It:


Dresses and ankle boots is such a simple and quick outfit idea for spring. It works just as well in autumn too, although as the weather cools you may need to add an extra layer like a denim jacket or even tights.

30 Ways To Wear A Neon Pink Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC

Happy Easter! I hope you have a fun weekend celebrating, we will be, with our 3 day lockdown lifted early.


I love putting together 30 ways to wear posts with my bags as I always have so many old outfit photos to look through to narrow it down to just 30 outfits I've worn! Each month, I look through my blog archive of daily outfit photos and find things I've worn 30 ways or more to put these posts together. Inspired by The True Cost documentary that says we should aim to wear each thing we buy 30 times or more to reduce the impact of our fashion purchases.

Today it's the turn of this beautiful little neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag!


30 Ways To Wear A Neon Pink Bag


30 Ways To Wear Rebecca Minkoff mini mac neon pink crossbody bag | awayfromblue


This cute neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC was an impulse buy back in May 2016. I'd seen the auction relisted a few times on eBay but the bag looked pretty worn. In the end I decided to go for it, it was under $30 even including shopping, and I reasoned I could redye it if the condition was too poor. It is a very worn bag but it's also an awesome shade so I just decided to wear it anyway. I know it will eventually get to the point it's too worn to wear and will need some TLC, but right now all people see (and compliment!) is that amazing bold neon colour!

Cost Per Wear

At $29.75, and having been worn 37 times, this bag is down to just 80 cents a wear, which is pretty good! And I intend to get quite a few more wears from it before I go down the redye route. For a bright and bold hot pink bag I didn't expect it would be as versatile as it has been in my wardrobe! I've worn it with a few different outfit options but I thought today I'd focus just on the colours I've worn it with to give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can add some neon pink to your outfit. Neon seems to come back as a "trend" every couple of years!

Another neutral this pink mini MAC bag works with is grey. I've worn my grey tees with the neon bag quite a few times, grey and pink is a lovely combination and this neon is a really bright way to do it.



Navy Outfits With Neon Pink Mini MAC



Just like the grey tee outfit above, blue and pink is another colour combination I wear frequently and I love the extra bold touch of navy and neon pink together. Just like I did with the other neutral outfits above, I sometimes add another little bit of pink in the outfit too but the mini MAC bag makes a great pop on its own against navy as well.



Olive Outfits With Neon Pink Bag



Pink and olive is a combo I never thought I'd try but once I gave it a wear once I was hooked and I find this really wearable! I like the contrast of the neutral olive and neon pink together. I particularly like wearing olive tops with this bag but my olive shorts work too!



Neon Pink Mini MAC With Other Shades of Pink



I don't have a lot of neon in my wardrobe and I certainly don't have a lot of neon pink! But I've found I can make my matchy-matchy outfits I so love when I try other shades of pink with the neon. Pastel pink printed jeans, a hot pink tank, even different shades of pink in a scarf all work well with this bag despite the shades being indifferent.


Purple With Neon Pink Mini MAC Bag




Pink and purple, much like pink and blue, are an easy combination and one I frequently rely on. As with the pink above I find any shade of purple, from a magenta cardigan to deep purple jeans, is such a pretty pairing.


Accessorising White Outfits With Neon Pink Bag




I don't have a lot of white in my wardrobe but I have worn this neon bag with white quite a lot! Like the black outfits I shared first, this bag really doesn't need a neutral base to pop as it does that all on its own. But it really stands out even more with a neutral base and white is another good colour choice to wear with neon pink. Perfect outfits for spring and summer.
