Weekday Wear Linkup: Maxi Skirts and Leopard Print Tees

Simple work from home style for today's Weekday Wear Link Up! Wearing the last things I thrifted before the opshops shut down due to coronavirus, these beautiful maxi skirts. With them being plain block colours I decided to wear my leopard print tees with them. Such easy outfits, but I felt really pulled together!

What I wore:

Sass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print with navy thrifted maxi skirt | awayfromblue

Necklace: Lovisa blue leaf long necklace
TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
Skirt: thrifted navy viscose drawstring no label maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This Sass and Bide neon leopard print tee is a favourite, it's one I don't frequently wear but every time I do I love it! It's a cropped style, which means it's just a normal length on my petite self, and so I didn't tuck it into the skirt at all, just left it loose. It was a hot day although it's autumn in Brisbane and this was a cool and comfortable outfit to wear. I really liked the orange leopard print with the navy maxi skirt too, navy and orange look so good together.

Two bloggers I follow, Sheila and Ivana, recently wore similar outfits too! Definitely a great silhouette.

The only thing that didn't go so well with this outfit was that it got covered in chalk when the boys did some chalk art in the afternoon. Getting dressed for isolation at home with a 4 and 5 year old is tough as my clothes never stay clean long, ha!


Last worn: neon leopard print tee, leaf necklace, thrifted navy maxi skirt, Havaianas.

Wardrobe Tour (And Handbag Storage!)







What I wore:

kmart statement necklace and grey leopard print tee outfit with ochre maxi skirt | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | workign from home isolation outfit leopard print tee ochre maxi skirt affordable kmart thrifted style
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Kmart grey leopard print tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

This is such an affordable outfit! The ochre maxi skirt was an opshop bargain at just $4, I picked the leopard print tee up for just $2 at Kmart and the necklace is Kmart too! Not wearing my bags every day has highlighted to me how affordable my wardrobe really is - if you don't include the designer bags! 😂

I liked the leopard print tee and the skirt together, but the outfit felt like it was missing a little something. This necklace was the perfect topper, and just like the outfit above while it was quick to pull together it helped me feel a little more dressed up. I don't always wear proper clothes when I'm working from home, there's a lot of loungewear or pyjama days in isolation, as I mentioned above it's hard to justify a nice outfit when the kids will mess it up before the end of the day. But it's a good change to wear proper clothes when the in laws come to visit or when I know I have a few meetings!


Last worn: grey leopard print tee, blue and gold beaded necklace, ochre maxi skirt, Havaianas (above).

Leopard Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A leopard print tee is a fun twist on a basic tee. You can keep your outfit simple and let the tee be the star by picking a block coloured maxi skirt. Denim works equally well too!

  26. Aw, thank you so much for the shout-out, Mica! I love that neon orange leopard - you are singing my song here! It looks stellar with the blue skirt - a great combo! I like the ochre skirt in the second outfit, but I wonder about the grey with it...it feels a little muddy with these two neutrals - I feel like a bolder, brighter colour with the ochre or else a neutral that's not grey (black, white, cream). That's just my opinion, though - I'm wearing grey and copper today, so what do I know?? ;-P

    Hugs to you, my dear, and kudos for dressing up in "real" clothes! You're a star! Thank you so much for the link-up party!

I guess it's not straightforward dressing up when when having a 4 and 5 year old to keep occupied all day :-) Those leopard print tees do certainly jazz up your maxi skirts, making for effortless yet stylish outfits! I especially love the first one, the navy and orange being a brilliant match! xxx

There are so many possibilities for them but I think leopard is definitely at the top of the list.
