Printed Kimonos, Jeanswest Maternity Tops and Shorts, Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag | Australia Day Sales

First up, hope everyone has an awesome Australia day tomorrow! We had a BBQ over the weekend and it was wonderful catching up with everyone.

If you're doing some shopping there are a lot of extra sales and discounts on for Australia day! I've wrapped up the best at the bottom of the post.


Congrats to 'Wehaf' who won the sunglasses giveaway. I'll have another giveaway this week.


Now, what I've been wearing. I have been loving kimonos and denim shorts this summer! I picked up yet another new kimono when we went boxing day sale shopping.

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | Third Trimester Summer Jeanswest Maternity Outfit floral kimono

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine Mini MAC bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
Jacket: Cotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print (new purchase)
Necklace: gifted Eye Candy LA 'Sasha' statement necklace
SingletJeanswest maternity tank in white
ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Although I'm frowning a little in this picture (it was really bright!) I love this outfit. I'd happily wear it over and over again. The statement necklace was an awesome Christmas present from my bestie, and this kimono is the one I got in the sales. Reduced from $39.95 to $3, I couldn't say no! It's more of a cocoon style and feels just like being wrapped in a giant blanket. Although not too warm, it is still perfect for the summer heat and was great for a morning at the library singing and dancing with toddler T.

I really liked the colours in this outfit too. The style challenge for the day was 'animal instinct' but the animal print pieces I thought I could wear the bump had outgrown, so I had to have a subtle nod to the theme with the python embossed leather on my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, white maternity tank, Jeanswest maternity denim, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC. First time I've worn the kimono as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearwhite maternity tank with blue and pink, Jeanswest maternity shorts and a maxi cardi, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and a maxi skirt.

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | Summer Maternity Denim Shorts Somedays Lovin Kimono

AwayFromTheBlue | Roie Designs labradorite bracelets Rebecca Minkoff aquamarine mini MAC bag
SunglassesRayban new Wayfarers
JacketSomedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono (on sale, and get an extra 15% off with code 'SWEETMATE')
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette

ShoesHavaianas tropical print thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs labradorite bracelets
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another kimono! My favourite from my Asos sale order last year. They are having another sale at the moment, 15% off everything with code 'SWEETMATE' for Australia day!

Wore this out shopping. We've been seriously de-cluttering over the Christmas break and while we donated a lot and discarded a lot more, realised we had a lot of things we wanted to keep (like toddler T's artwork!) but nowhere to put it. We went out to buy a few boxes and check out some more of the sales. I had a Jeanswest voucher I'd found when cleaning out that expired the next day so it was a good excuse to go shopping there too.

The style challenge for the day was 'dramatic eyes' which I didn't even attempt - I know my limits with eye makeup! - so I just skipped it entirely, and wore something I'd been thinking of for a while. It thought the sea glass green colour of this maternity tee would look nice with the print on the kimono, and was pleased with how it turned out.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer (above), Somedays Lovin' kimono, maternity tee, Jeanswest maternity shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearprinted kimono and a maxi skirt, green tee and a white scarf, Jeanswest maternity shorts and a colourful summer outfit, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC and flared jeans.

  3. Love the statement necklace from the first look as well as the color/pattern and the frayed/tassled edges of your newest kimono. At $3 I would have likely taken it home as well. I do enjoy wearing mine during summer months as well.

    Have a great week!

  5. 3 $? That was really a steal! How are you coping in the summer heat with pregnancy? I can imagine that being pretty tiring at times.

    1. It is pretty humid and uncomfortable sometimes, I won't lie! But we have air conditioning so it's not too bad, and it's good as I'm certainly sure to be drinking more than enough water each day, haha.
