SAHM Style in Winter: Skinny Jeans, Leather Jacket, Jumper and Scarf

First up, some exciting news! I'm always open and honest with my partnerships here on the blog. Just as I have previously, I wanted to share a little about my latest sponsorship with you. In perfect timing, as #noBuyJuly15 is now over....I'm going to be partnering with Shopbop!

Shopbop is definitely one of my go-to-sites when I'm looking to buy something (as you'll know if you subscribe on youtube), so I'm really pleased! In Australia, it's tricky and expensive to find a lot of my favourite designer accessories like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Rebecca Minkoff. While they are getting easier to find here, I can't get past checking Shopbop first. They always have the best range, and the 3 day international shipping is often faster than regular shipping within Australia.

So what does this new partnership mean for my blog? I'll still be sharing what I wear, you might just see a few more links sprinkled here and there to Shopbop, and I'll start to call out when I'm wearing things that I bought from there so you can head over and check it out yourself! As always, I'm open to comments, feedback and constructive criticism so if you have any suggestions for improvement let me know. The content on this blog will always be written by me, that will never change, and you are under no obligation to click anything to support the blog.


Now, the outfits. More denim outfits, and again with this Jeanswest jacket. I went for a little while not wearing it and now it's back in heavy rotation. Winter weather makes me reach for jeans and leather jackets frequently. Add a bright scarf and you have a simple, easy winter stay at home mum outfit.

What I wore:

Away From Blue red tartan scarf leather jacket skinny jeans ankle boots winter SAHM Style

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere single initial monogram
JacketJeanswest black leather jacket
Scarf: gifted red tartan scarf
TopTopshop grey knitted scoop neck top
Jeans:  Jeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesRMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This is the second tartan scarf my sister brought me back from Europe. Thought it would look good with the grey top, and was a lovely way to add some colour. I actually took my jacket off during the day as it warmed up as we wear outside in the sun..

We went out with my sister to take baby T to a farm down the coast we had visited often when we were younger. It has delicious food, and also a petting zoo so he got the chance to pat and feed some of the animals. It was adorable seeing his little face light up!

It's been over a year since I last wore this top. I wore to give it one last wear, but I've decided to hold onto it. It's a great neutral so it's staying.


Last worn: Jeanswest leather jacket, grey knit, Jeanswest prima denim skinny jeans, black ankle boots, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the scarf.

Other ways to wearleather jacket and printed dress, grey knit for travel, kimono and skinny jeans, ankle boots and a shift dress, speedy bandouliere with a printed dress.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine
JacketJeanswest black leather jacket
Scarf: Cotton On turquoise pashmina
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC with python embossed leather in aquamarine (purchased from Shopbop, my first ever Shopbop order!)

Why I wore it:

Told you I'd wear this scarf and bag together again, they are too perfect! Didn't realise I'd be wearing them together with the same jeans though, ha! I like the aqua with the purple, and I thought that the blue knit was another nice colour to throw into the mix.

After a tiring night (as you can no doubt tell by the photo!) we had a more relaxed day, checking out some of the toy sales around as baby T had some birthday money to spend.


Last worn: black leather jacket(above), turquoise pashmina, blue jumper, purple skinny jeansblack Converse, Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC

  1. Love, love your Jeanswest leather jacket, Mica! The first look with the gifted tartan scarf is my fave, can't wait to wear a similar look in fall. Agree with you, aqua and purple are a lovely color combination. Have a wonderful Friday, Mica!

  9. Congrats on your partnership! I always see you rave about Shopbop and this is such a great way to branch out! (:

    I've said it once and I'll say it again, your sister did well with that scarf. Such a fun pieces for your wardrobe. I have a similar but tan based one. I'd love to play around with it more this winter. (:

    Aqua and purple do go together quite well! Who would have thought?! Looks like something I'll be trying in the very near future.

  18. Congrats on your new partnership - that's great news! I love your jacket! I got a faux leather jacket from Primark when I was in the UK. It was cheap as chips and I love it to bits, I don't know how my wardrobe has survived so long without a leather jacket in it!

    1. I can't imagine not having a leather jacket, a winter essential I think! Glad you found one you liked! :)

  19. When our winter comes around I'll have another colour combo look to wear courtesy of your second outfit as I too have a pair of purple jeans! The aqua looks fab with the purple and a great idea to add another blue tone in the mix with the cobalt blue knit.

  23. I don't think there's anything in my wardrobe that I have gone a year without wearing. My collection is so small and minimal. I often feel like I wear the same things over and over.

    1. I feel like I wear the same things over and over, but it's not for lack of choice, haha. I certainly want to slim down my wardrobe to something more manageable, like yours!
