Monochrome Stripe Tank and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Bright Accessories

Adding some colour to neutral outfits with bright accessories: my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag and blue and purple scarves. I really liked both of these outfits, I need to wear things like this more often! I've been trying to introduce more colour to my outfits lately but there's something so simple about neutral outfits and adding pops of colours with bright accessories.

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta 

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! Didn't exactly keep me as warm as I'd hoped in the morning though, the three-quarter length sleeves on the cardigan were a bit chilly for the school drop off. Of course by the school pick up in the afternoon I was feeling like the cardigan and scarf were a bit too warm together!

This Louis Vuitton monogram shawl is so cosy and warm. I really like the pop of colour it gives to the striped tank, and pink and blue being a go-to favourite colour of mine I liked the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag with this cobalt blue too.

Was a quiet day at home most of the time, aside from the school pickup and drop off and grabbing another loaf of bread on the way home.

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, this outfit felt really warm, all day! I felt a bit overdressed in this thick knitted cardigan as we walked around the shopping centre in the morning after school drop off. We had to try find a pair of shoes for my youngest boy, but thankfully he liked the first pair we tried on. We went to a proper kids shoe store which is not normally where I'd buy the kids shoes, as they ruin them quite quickly, but they had a sale on so it wasn't too bad. We'd had no luck at Kmart, Target or Big W as they are all suffering from low stock levels because of the virus impacts to imports. Although I think the Target stocking issues may partly be due to them closing down so many stores as well? (Our Aussie brands are different from the US ones and so our Kmarts are taking over closing Target stores). Just gives me more reasons to stay home though - not a lot to browse through in the shops!

This was a very dark outfit with the black tank and cardigan, and the grey jeans. I think that the purple scarf and the magenta bag were just the right touches of colour with it, and purple and pink is another colour combination I really enjoy.



How You Can Wear It:

Bright bags and scarves add the perfect touch of colour to a neutral layered winter outfit. For a little extra pop you can pick two different colours for your accessories like I have here.

Striped Tanks And Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bags | Weekday Wear Link Up

Keeping things super simple for more hot days a couple weeks ago with striped tanks and block colour maxi skirts. Both maxi skirts were lucky opshop finds and they work well with the striped tanks! Not that you can really go wrong with stripes.


What I wore:

black stripe tank with navy maxi skirt and magenta accessories edie bag statement necklace | awayfromblue

Necklace: thrifted magenta pink statement beaded necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta


Why I wore it:

I like black and navy together - although I used to think that they were two colours you should never wear together, so silly! I liked the black and white stripes with the navy skirt but this outfit felt like it was missing a little colour, so I added the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag and then went a little matchy-matchy with the magenta statement necklace. I haven't been wearing a lot of my statement necklaces recently, it's not my first choice in the summer heat, but I have been missing them so gave this one another wear. It's a pretty close match to the magenta of the Edie bag too!

Wore this for a normal busy mum day - helping out in my son's class in the morning, a trip to the library and the playground with my youngest, and sports in the evening after school pickup. There was a nice breeze so this maxi skirt with knee high slits was a good choice!


Last worn: black and white striped tank, magenta statement necklace, navy maxi skirt, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff magenta Edie bag.

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly I hadn't worn this striped tank and ochre maxi skirt together before! Such a simple combination and a nice way to hit 30 wears with this tank! I recently posted all 30 ways I've worn this striped tank.

This was again a nice simple outfit for a busy day, with the school run and working from home. I felt my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag was due another wear so I got it out, even if it only went as far as between the car park and school and kindy!

I've worn this tortoiseshell tassel necklace with the ochre skirt before, I like the colour combination, and this necklace looks great with stripes too for a little extra print mix.


How You Can Wear It:

With a plain, block colour maxi skirt, a striped tank is a great pairing for a little extra interest with your outfit. Nice and cool for a hot summer day too!

Striped Tanks and Thrifted Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

When I bought these maxi skirts last month I knew I wanted to wear them with stripes right away! Although I just shared about them on Wednesday's Monthly purchase post, today I'm showing more details about some of the ways I've worn them. With a plain block colour maxi skirt, a striped tank is a great pairing.

What I wore:

black and white striped tank with ochre tree of life maxi skirt crossbody bag | awayfromblue

Necklace: Colette tortoise shell acrylic disc tassel necklace
TopAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I really love the colour of this maxi skirt! As you can see it seems to change colour in different lights - it looks pretty similar to the tan bag at first but as you can see in the Insta pic it's a much more yellow tone. I did like the tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag with it though. It was the perfect size for carrying the essentials when we popped into the grocery store after church.

Unfortunately we didn't quite miss the storm was was threatening though and I got a little drenched running to the car! This maxi skirt was not fun to wear when wet! Will need to remember to keep it to rain-free days only.

With the striped tank and the block colour maxi skirt I added just a little print mixing with the tortoiseshell necklace. Simple outfit for a stormy day.


Last worn: striped tank, tortoiseshell necklace, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Why I wore it:

My other recently thrifted maxi skirt, I went a little more matchy-matchy with this one and stuck with a navy stripe tank to match the navy skirt. I even picked a blue beaded necklace to tie in with it too, along with the navy Havaianas!

The tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag was a nice bit of contrast with the navy - I really like the two neutrals together. Great outfit for the school run and a few errands on a hot summer day.


Last worn: navy striped tank, beaded necklace, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera bag (above). First time I've worn the skirt as it's a recent purchase.

Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic! It's so simple and easy to wear with a plain block colour maxi skirt, as you don't have to worry about prints clashing. You can stick with a neutral coloured crossbody bag like I have here to let the maxi skirt be the star of your outfit.

Denim Shorts, Summer Layers and Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

Happy Valentine's Day! Sharing two un-Valentine's Day like outfits, although one does have a little pink in it!

With Brisbane's summer heart, shorts and a tank are a good way to dress. It's easy to add a little summer layer to them though for more colour, as I've done with each of the outfits below.

What I wore:

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to go to an appointment in the morning. I wanted something easy to wear and it has been a while since I've worn these denim shorts. I was going to wear a different printed tank, but then I saw the kimono and realised that it would look great with stripes. Last time I wore this kimono I tried a little print mixing too. I liked this combination and felt that it looked good, but got a few side eyes when we went out for lunch so maybe it wasn't the best choice. I was happy in it though, and that's all that matters!

Was a really comfortable outfit, with a very practical bag. I had to juggle the baby bag, my handbag and the toddlers, so I appreciated the cross body strap on my Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag as well as the fact that it held everything I needed in it.


Last worn: blue printed kimono, black striped tank, distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

Another appointment, going to see the specialist for a checkup for Baby Boy. As I liked the outfit I'd worn above the day before, I wore a similar outfit the next day. A plain black tank this time, with longer bermuda denim shorts and instead of a kimono I added the pink vest. I'd been thinking about wearing my pink blazer again, after seeing Lorna wearing hers so well, but it was a bit warm for that so I went with this pink vest instead.

Again I wore my Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag, it's such a good bag with the boys as the cross body strap makes it so easy to wear. I added this fun wooden statement necklace I got for Christmas too, it looks nice against the plain black tank. As the specialist's office is full of toys I didn't have to worry about wearing a teething necklace to entertain the boys. It's nice to wear non-silicone necklaces sometimes!


Last worn: pink vest, black tank, bermuda denim shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini (above).

Other ways to wearpink vest and printed jeans, black tank and printed shorts, bermuda denim shorts worn two ways, studded sandals and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini and blue dresses.

Perfect for pregnancy: studded sandals in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff MAM and maternity jeans.







How You Can Wear It:

Add some colour to a denim shorts and tank outfit in summer with an extra layer. Kimonos and lightweight vests don't overheat you, but add a fun touch to your outfit.

Olive And Black Striped Tanks and Shorts Outfits With LV Speedy Bandouliere

Easy striped tank and shorts outfits with black and olive together, and my Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere bag. While I wore these outfits back in February while it was still summer, there was some cooler autumn weather so I layered one outfit up a little with a light jacket.


What I wore:

black and olive autumn outfit with speedy bandouliere bag | awayfromtheblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere, black jacket | away from the blue



Jacket: thrifted black Emerson drawstring waist utility jacket
Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
TopAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere


Why I wore it:

This black and white striped tank is one you're going to see on repeat lately - it's so close to 30 wears and I'm eager to get it there so I can put together a post on it in the next couple of months. It really is such a wardrobe staple. The black and white stripes look good with the olive shorts.

It was a strange kind of day, more rain but not a lot of humidity - a clear sign of autumn weather starting to arrive. I picked the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere to wear as it's waterproof, and added the jacket on top of my light tank and shorts outfit as it was cooler than I expected when we headed off for the school run in the morning. After the school run the little one and I headed out to look for decorations for his upcoming birthday - he'd picked a theme at last but we were struggling a little because despite visiting four different stores there was very little to pick from overall in the party sections. I guess it doesn't make sense to have a lot of stock if the restrictions can change at the last minute for parties! Determined to let him have a big party this year though after we had to cancel at the last moment a year ago with the restrictions.

By school pickup the humidity had returned too and our jackets were unnecessary, but I still liked this outfit. The shoes were good for all the running around we did between different stores, but I swapped to my my supportive New Balance sneakers for school pickup as my knee was starting to complain from all the walking and driving.

Shorts: Jeanswest Heather Bermuda short in black
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere


Why I wore it:

Summer weather had returned on this day, so no extra layers were needed! Again I stuck with black and olive, with this old grey and olive striped tank that was definitely overdue a wear and my black Bermuda denim shorts. An easy and comfortable outfit for a day out shopping with the kids and my mum - I did pretty well, picking up a new pair of shoes, as did my mum! I wore my supportive New Balance sneakers as I felt they went well with the outfit and they also help my weak knee. I'd been rushing around a lot that week and was starting to feel more pain, these shoes are so helpful at reducing the pain. I stuck with the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere as I'd worn it the day before, above, and it meant I didn't have to swap out my bag as it went with this outfit too.

Wanted to dress it up just a little so added some rose gold accessories with the filigree heart necklace and the heart stud earrings. Was a really nice day out!



How You Can Wear It:

Olive and black are great neutrals together. To prevent a neutral outfit feeling too bland, try introduce a bit of a print - stripes are my go-to, as you can see here.

Print Mixing: Striped Tanks, Shorts and Floral Kimonos With Cross Body Bags

Just like last summer, I'm finding kimonos and shorts are a frequent go-to option in the heat. To mix things up a little, I tried some print mixing, adding floral print kimonos on top of the striped tanks. I always love print mixing with stripes, they just go with everything.

What I wore:

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very hot and humid day! We took the boys to the Bayside steam railway again. It's a huge set of miniature train tracks and you get to sit on the carriages of mini steam trains and zip around the tracks. One of the safety requirements is closed in shoes, so I wore my Converse despite the humidity.

The striped tank looked great worn just with the shorts alone, but I wanted to cover up my shoulders a little as it was such a sunny day. Like last time we went to the steam railway, I added a kimono on top. This one was a lucky thrift find. I always look in opshops for kimonos but over the years this is the only one I've found! With the red birds in the print, the red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag seemed like the perfect accessory. Despite the small size, it comfortably held the essentials and the boys water bottles so I had them handy as we went for rides on the train. Turns out that sitting on the back of a tiny train as it steams through the trees creates a lovely cooling breeze too, it was such an enjoyable morning.

After riding on the trains, we walked over to the nearby park to let the boys run around a bit more, but the heat quickly sent us back home to cool off in the air conditioning!

Why I wore it:

Despite having the same outfit formula as what I wore above, I didn't like this outfit as much. I love all of the pieces on their own, this is one of my frequently worn kimonos and you can't beat a classic white striped tank! I just felt it all looked a little off together. I did like how comfortable this was for a morning out with the boys though. We went to the local library and they played a bit in the playground before lunch.

I didn't hate this outfit - there were some things about it I really liked, like how well the pastel pink shorts went with the Rebecca Minkoff peony Darren messenger bag! I will definitely be wearing those two pieces together again!

Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Stripes and florals are so fun to wear together! A colourful floral kimono is such an easy piece to add to a summer shorts and striped tank outfit too. It doesn't overheat you but allows you to add more colour and interest to what you're wearing. A basic striped tank is a must have piece you can wear so many different ways.

Striped Tops, Pink Sleeveless Jacket and Denim Shorts

More stripes! My previous post was all about striped maxi skirts, the one is wearing my pink vest with some striped tops. Stripes are definitely the most common print in my wardrobe, even with all of my skull print or leopard print scarves!

What I wore:

monochrome black stripe tank shorts outfit pink sleeveless drape vest mint bag | AwayFromBlue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | AwayFromTheBlue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
ShortsOneTeaspoon Hawks shorts in Fox black (C/O, on sale!)
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH (on sale, 58% off!)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I wore this for the "pinktastic" style prompt of the #AutumnStyleFile challenge. I like pink and black, and I've seen on a few blogs a black dress with a pink layer on top. It gave me the idea of trying this pink vest with a monochrome black outfit. Went with shorts and a tank as my shorter black dresses aren't breastfeeding friendly and the vest doesn't work with my black maxi dresses.

Wore this to run a few quick errands. I was starting to plan for Baby Boy's first birthday party and walked around a few stores trying to get some of the things I needed. It's crazy to think he'll be 1 soon.

Was pleased with this outfit - although the pink sandals and pastel vest are different shades I think they look good together, and the little aqua bag was a great accessory. I'm amazed it's been over a year since I last wore these sandals! I've been loving my Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals and realised I better hunt out these Balenciagas and wear them now before the autumn weather arrives.

ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

This was going to be a quiet day, not much to do other than a couple of errands in the morning. I wanted to wear this pink vest again and was trying to decide on a top to wear with it. I picked this striped tee as although I didn't anticipate needing to feed Baby Boy while we were out, I figured it would be good to be wearing something breastfeeding friendly just in case.

I was so glad I'd chosen to wear this tee in the evening. We had to unexpectedly take Baby Boy to the hospital (he's fine now) and I had to breastfeed in the waiting room. When your baby's 11 months it's hard to get them to use a breastfeeding cover without tearing it off. Luckily I can pull this shirt up and have the excess fabric drape down and not feel too exposed when he pulls the wrap off for the tenth time... 😅

Despite it being a similar outfit formula to the one above and it being comfortable to wear I think this looks a little off in the photos. The rolled sleeves on the tee look a little odd peeking out from under the vest, and I didn't like the look of this outfit as much as the first one. I did love the combination of the aquamarine bag with the pink vest again, I'm glad I tried this pairing as it's now a favourite.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer (above), pink drape vest (above), stripe tee, Bermuda denim shorts, two tone sandals, Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC bag (above).

Striped Tees and Tanks Under $10:








You can a make a basic shorts outfit a little more interesting with a striped tee or tank instead of a plain one. You can also add more colour with a vest, kimono or bright bag without adding bulk.
