Printed Maxi Skirts, Scarves and Grey Jumpers: SAHM Winter Style

While the winter weather hung around a little longer than expected to in Brisbane, I took the chance to enjoy getting layered up with some grey knits and printed scarves. It was easy to take the scarves off as it heated up in the middle of the day.

What I wore:

Away From Blue Blog | Grey Jumper printed scarf tribal maxi skirt red bag

Away From Blue blog | Marc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs scarf in Island pine-print
JumperTopshop grey knitted scoop neck top
Skirt: Izabel London Aztec print maxi skirt (C/O)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster

Why I wore it:

Wore this to work from home and do the day care drop off/pick up. Nice and comfy! I'd had the idea of wearing this grey jumper and skirt together, but when I put it on it seemed a bit dull. I decided on this scarf to try add some colour, and the bright bag too.

I really wish I could fold this scarf better. It's got a beautiful, colourful print in the centre but I always seem to show more of the cream border than anything when I wear it.


Last worn: printed scarf, grey knit, printed maxi skirt, ballet flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag.

Other ways to wearprinted scarf with pink and blue, grey knit and a third trimester belly, printed maxi skirt and a black tee, ballet flats and a pencil skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita bag and a maxi dress.

Away From Blue Marc by Marc Jacobs Lil Ukita Red rock lobster bag
Scarf: red tartan scarf
JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual
BagMarc by Marc Jacobs Little Ukita bag in Rock Lobster

Why I wore it:

Since I'd liked the grey knit and printed maxi skirt combination above, I wore a similar version again to run some errands and go to the doctors.

I wasn't too sure about the beaded detail on the top and the print in the scarf, if it looked a bit too 'busy'. I changed my opinion back and forth a few times during the day, and I'm still undecided now looking at the photos. Probably not a combination I'd try again, even though I wouldn't call it a complete outfit fail.

  9. I love the beaded top of the second outfit. I think I probably agree with you that the pattern of the scarf is clashing a little too much especially as the beading is so lovely. But it's always good to try these things. The red is fantastic against the grey and black.

    1. Thank you! I agree, like you said it's always good to try something once. Especially with clothes, they are just clothes in the end :)

  11. Again I love both of these styles, but my favorite is the first one, that Aztec maxi skirt is TDF! The gray sweater is the perfect match along with the red purse.

  14. Well I hope it warms up for you soon! Next week is officially fall for us, so I know you are totally ready for Spring over there. (; I love that scarves are pretty and functional. We totally just need them to work with everything, especially as these last few days start to cool off. I love that design on that second sweater and actually remember you wearing it before. Come to think ,I'm pretty sure it was one of your first posts I ever commented on! (:

    1. I am so glad our spring weather is here at last, it's only taken a month to arrive...sheesh! haha.
      That top is a very memorable one, I like it, just a shame I didn't wear it more while the weather was cooler! :)

  15. I didn't really even notice the beads on your sweater at first so I don't think it looks too busy at all! You look great!

  36. Mica, weathers are getting crazy and even we're living in different countries, we're also complaining about the heat and in your case--the cold of winter hihi..

  37. I love how well you wear your scarves! I live a scarfy life vicariously through you, because I for the life of me cannot wear or manage scarves! I have 4 to be exact, which usually hang out in my closet :(. Love the layered look, we are starting to have to layer here since fall is coming..its still pretty unseasonably warm( not that I am complaining) but soon I will become a disguised penguin, and that wont be fun!

    1. I have way too many scarves, haha! I think everyone has something they collect a lot of, mine happens to be scarves. Easier to justify another scarf purchase than another handbag purchase ;)

  38. I'm just starting to incorporate scarves into my wardrobe. I use to think they were a hassle, but they're easy to take on & off throughout the day depending on the weather. You look lovely in the photos!

  44. such cute maxi skirts! Haha I know what you mean about being undecided about an outfit...I hate it when I can't make up my mind if something works or not and then I just end up feeling really self-conscious the whole time. It looks great though, and I love the pops of red! :)

    1. Yeah, it's not nice being unsure and unconfident. But at the end of the day, it's only clothes, so not the end of the world, we can change afterwards and forget all about it, haha!
