Leather Jackets, Skinny Jeans and a Tee, Alexander McQueen Pink Skull Scarf, Balenciaga City and Day Bags

Here's what I wore to work for Casual Friday:

Away From Blue blog sorbet balenciaga city skull scarf and skinny jeans

Away From Blue blog grey and black prints with pink accessories

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
Scarf: Alexander McQueen skull scarf white/pink modal (on sale! New purchase)
TopCotton On Salta peasant top in black / gardenia star gazer print
Jeans: Cotton On grey skinnies
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in black
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet

Wet and rainy Friday, so boots were the perfect footwear choice :) Brightened up my outfit with my new skull scarf and a colourful Balenciaga. I wasn't too sure about the mix of prints with the pattern on the jacket, star print on the tee and skulls on the scarf, but I think it all worked together. Feel free to tell me otherwise and leave me tips for how to do it better in a comment! :)


Last worn: Markus Lupfer jacket, star print tee, grey skinny jeans, Asos black boots, Balenciaga sorbet city. First time I've worn the scarf as it is a recent purchase.

Here's what I wore to take Cooper to the vets today and have a relaxing Saturday:

Away From The Blue OOTD Balenciaga tempete silver GSH day bag

Away From Blue Aussie Style Blogger lilac tee jeans leather jacket Bal bag

JacketWittner Santa Fe cobalt blue leather jacket
ScarfAlexander McQueen skull scarf white/pink modal
Tee: Roger and Peach screen printed doily heart tee in lilac bought at the Rocks Markets in Sydney
Jeans: Sass and Bide "Straight up" jeans
ShoesNine West fascinate ballet flats in silver glitter
Bracelets: the usual
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete


Really like my new scarf, so wearing it two days in a row! :) This lilac and cobalt combination was another outfit I had thought of when considering the purchase of the leather jacket. Think the colours worked out nicely. A pink or purple bag would have been good, but picked my Bal day as I had a bit to carry around.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments, prayers and messages about Cooper and his health lately. Special thank you to Pat from Shoes of Prey who sent me a lovely email. Cooper is doing really well, although we still have to keep an eye on how much walking and running he does for a little longer until his wound is completely healed after surgery. The vet has given him the all clear, which is great! So nice to have good news!

  21. Hi Mica!

    Cooper is so adorable! I don't have any idea what happened to him, but I wish him well and I pray for his fast full recovery. Anyway, your scarf is beautiful! It gives life and more color to any outfit. Especially on gloomy days! Have a great day :)
