Kimonos, Shorts and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Regan Cross Body Bag

After a mini handbag clear out a while back I got rid of the yellow Rebecca Minkoff swing bag I had. I loved the colour but not the style so much. So when I saw this yellow bag in the Shopbop sale I had to buy it! It's a lovely mustard yellow that works nicely with other colours as well as neutrals.

When we had a few warmer than average spring days I was happy to get my denim shorts out again! It's been a while since they've been worn after being pregnant over last spring/summer. The two pairs I'm wearing below were last worn in April, a year and a half ago!

What I wore:

Spring opshopping outfit pritned kimono singlet denim shorts yellow Regan bag Havaianas | AwayFromBlue

Cross body Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel bag in Harvest Gold | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketChoies red vintage pattern kimono
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Charlotte teething necklace
Tank: Cotton On red singlet
ShortsJeanswest black denim cuff shorts
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold (new purchase)

Why I wore it:

Wasn't sure how this mustard micro Regan bag would look with the printed red kimono and singlet, but I'm glad I gave it a go as I really liked the combination! This was a simple outfit for a rushed trip around the shops in the afternoon. This top isn't the best style to feed in while in public for me. I don't feel very covered up pulling it down and it's fitted so is tricky pulling it up. I wanted to get out and back home before baby boy got hungry.  My mother in law kindly babysat toddler T so I just had to worry about fitting in with baby boy's needs.

Looking at my wardrobe and thinking about what I wanted to wear in spring I realised I needed some more basics, as I miss the maternity tanks I had in my pregnancy capsule wardrobe. I passed them onto a pregnant friend. Although I didn't find everything I wanted in the opshops, I did have some luck and managed to buy a few things. Also picked up a couple of clothes from Kmart, they have a really good selection of basics at the moment! While this outfit might not have been the best to feed in, it was perfect for quickly trying on clothes.


Last worn: red printed kimono, red Cotton On singlet, black denim shorts, Havaianas. First time I've worn the bag as it's a new purchase.

Other ways to wearred printed kimono and striped tank, red Cotton On singlet and maxi skirt, denim shorts and a peplum tank.

BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This outfit is pretty much the non-maternity version of this second trimester outfit! I liked the combination of the grey tee and grey kimono together so it was nice to wear it again. This was an easy and comfortable outfit for a hot day too. Grey tee, denim shorts and kimono with my newly bought accessories made getting dressed simple.

I had a stressful morning, taking baby boy for some blood tests as he's been unwell. I don't like having my own blood taken (the 3 hour glucose test in my pregnancies was not fun) but it was so much more difficult seeing my son have his blood taken!

On a lighter outfit-related note, I really liked the combination of the printed kimono and the harvest gold micro Regan bag together. The bag is so nice with the yellow on the kimono. I'll be wearing this combination more often.


It's the second time I've worn this bag, and I'm reviewing everything I buy after I wear it twice to try learn what works and doesn't work for my wardrobe. Although this micro Regan bag is more of a mustard yellow than the bright yellow bag it replaced, I really like this colour and think it will work just as well for spring and summer as it will in autumn. Happy I bought this, I'll try get a youtube review up soon.



Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, grey printed kimono, colour block tee, denim shorts, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan (above). First time I've worn the sandals as they are a recent purchase.

Other ways to weargrey printed kimono and a maxi skirt, colour block tee and pencil skirt, printed shorts and stripes.

  6. The RM bag is seriously so cute! I love the shape of it, it seems perfect for casual and more dressed up looks. I wouldn't think of buying a yellow bag but it looks so cute with both looks! I love the color combinations :)

  9. It felt like your winter came and gone in a blink of the eye! You are so lucky! Frankly I have never given much thought to Rebecca Minkoff bags but now that I've seen a few styled by you, I might just pick up one for myself.

  12. I didn't love the RM Swing either... glad I'm not alone in that! I'm jealous of your shorts! And your teething necklaces are so fun! Blood work... not so much. (I'm scheduled to get blood work done next week and I'm not thrilled about it ha.) Hope you guys have recovered!
