Weekday Wear Link Up: Balenciaga Bags and Kmart Short Sleeve Tiered Jersey Midi Dress

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two outfits I wore - both the Kmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dresses. Like I do fairly frequently despite telling myself I really shouldn't, I have bought this dress in multiple colours. I now own the dress in amber and fuchsia, and I'm tempted by the navy... with the hot spring we have been having in Brisbane a light floaty dress like this is just perfect. I kept it simple, accessorising them with some Balenciaga bags each time I wore them, although one is a little dressier of an outfit than the other.

Why I wore it:

Wore this a couple of weeks ago, just a few days from Halloween. It was a cloudy and windy yet humid day as there were storms predicted so I knew this dress would be comfortable for the school run and working from home, as it was warm despite the breeze. And with the black accessories the amber dress worked well at being kind of themed for my son's special Halloween sporting class. The kids had the chance to earn lollies doing when practicing their sporting skills which they were very excited about!

My recently purchased black New Balance sneakers were comfortable and helped this outfit stay more casual, as well as matching with the black Balenciaga part time bag and black bracelet stack. This bag was definitely overdue a wear, last worn in March! It was good to get it out again. I did try wear a black necklace with this too but couldn't find the perfect one so went with my simple silver Tiffany heart in the end.

Thankfully the rain held off in the evening while we found our way to class after I managed to get us lost on the wrong side of town after picking up dinner first, but we made it there just on time. While the rain started during the class we didn't get too wet afterwards as I'd remembered to bring umbrellas!

Why I wore it:

This dress was an impulse buy! When bike shopping for Christmas I'd seen this dress at Kmart and decided if I found the bike I'd treat myself, having some money left over from Christmas. Was so pleased to have found the bike and I felt the dress was a good reward, we had been looking a while with the shortage in Australia! Decided to wear it out a few days later to a kids birthday party. Although interestingly it also rained on the way back to the car on this day too as a storm blew in just before the end of the party! Storm season is truly underway.

Wore my strappy studded sandals and my pretty marble statement necklace to try dress this up a little for the party. The white howlite beads on this bracelet matched the white marble on the necklace well too!

As soon as I'd seen this dress I knew I wanted to wear this little turquoise Balenciaga first bag with it - it really pops against the fuchsia! One of my fave outfits.


How You Can Wear It:

A bright, block colour midi dress is so easy to dress up or down. You can try pretty sandals or heels for dressing it up, or a casual pair of sneakers on a more relaxed day.

Printed A-Line Skirts and Blazers With Balenciaga Part Time Bag: Weekday Wear Link Up!

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm wearing two pretty a-line skirts that don't get much wear on my stay at home mum days. They are perfect for my business casual office though, especially when dressed up with a blazer.

What I wore:

Necklace: Roie Designs multi chain layered beaded necklace
Top: Jeanswest Vickie button back tank in enamel blue
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I wear a lot of neutrals with this pretty mustard, black and white printed pleated skirt. Black and greys go perfectly with it, but I decided to try something a little different and wear this bright turquoise tank. I really liked the combination! The turquoise and mustard felt a bit bright together so the black jersey blazer, black multi chain necklace and black Balenciaga part time bag were nice neutral pieces to add on top. I thought that the silver ballet flats were a nice choice with the silver studded hardware on the Balenciaga bag.

I rediscovered this necklace when I was setting up my new walk in wardrobe. It's been a long time since it's been worn, with it being a very attractive toy to grabby little babies and toddlers meaning I haven't even thought about it for a few years! It was perfect for this busy day in the office, I love a good statement necklace. Even if the little one did have a bit of a play with it in the afternoon, it survived! It's been so long since I last wore it I can't even find it on the blog to link to it.

Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, this one isn't really trying new things! I've worn this pretty green beaded necklace with this silk leaf print skirt quite a few times, it's a nice bit of matchy-matchy with the print on the skirt. In fact this whole outfit is the autumn version of this winter outfit. I'm just wearing bare legs instead of tights, a navy blue tank instead of a cobalt knit, and a cropped boucle blazer instead of a trench coat.

I really liked this outfit! I think the navy tanks works so well with all the black and with the green in the skirt.  This tank is so close to 30 wears, this is it's 27th wear. For a breastfeeding tank it's definitely been a worthwhile addition to my wardrobe. The nursing access is so discreet I can easily wear it even though I'm no longer breastfeeding.

A-Line Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A fun knee-length a-line skirt is a great choice for a business casual office outfit. You can keep things simple and professional by adding a black blazer on top and neutral accessories to let the printed skirt be the star of your outfit.

Two Ways To Wear Blush Pink Blazer (With Balenciaga Black Part Time Bag)

Sharing two different ways I've worn this blush blazer to the office recently. I decided to give it another wear as it's something I haven't worn in a while. With the casual fabric and oversized shape it's not the most formal blazer, but it works perfectly in my business casual office!

What I wore:

TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I actually had a completely different outfit in mind to wear on this day, and was going to wear a dress. However after constant rain overnight with our wild Brisbane weather it was actually a lot cooler and I decided that pants would be a better choice than a dress on a cold and wet day. Rather strange for January and the middle of summer! I couldn't even try take photos on the patio as the rain was really coming down! So I quickly grabbed pics of my outfit inside.

I really liked the blush blazer with the burgundy pants. Remember a while ago when everyone in blog-land was all about the blush and burgundy combination? I really liked it even if I haven't worn it much, these burgundy pants were the perfect colourful choice with the pastel blazer. I couldn't decide on the perfect necklace with the striped tank and colourful outfit so I went with these pretty silver leaf earrings - a Christmas gift from my mum. I felt the earrings and the blush and burgundy made the outfit stand out enough.


Last worn: blush blazer, black and white striped tank, burgundy pants, black ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag. First time I've worn the earrings as they were a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearblush blazer and olive jeans, black and white striped tank and maxi skirt, burgundy pants worn two ways, black ballet flats and pencil skirts, Balenciaga Part Time bag and a-line skirt.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Again with the same blush blazer, black Balenciaga bag and black flats! This time around I had planned this outfit in advance - I wanted to stick with blush and black for the #whatshallweweartowork challenge Anna set for February. I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above though.

I thought the grey skater dress and blush blazer would look really nice together, and while I like the pink and grey colour combo I think the pieces maybe don't look the best.  I did pause in front of the mirror and consider changing my outfit, but I was - as always - short on time so wore it anyway!

It resulted in a really casual outfit for the office. Usually when I wear this dress to work I try formal it up a bit with a more structured blazer. I added the big statement necklace for a fun and fancy touch - and I did get some compliments on the outfit and necklace, but it still wasn't my fave and felt quite dressed down. I probably won't wear the blazer and dress together again.

Was nice to take advantage of a rare meeting free day at work though and be comfortable while I sat at my desk most of the day working away. It was another wet day with the streak of rainy days we had been having, but it was also humid and so hot in the morning so the dress was just perfect for the temps.


Last worn: blush blazer (above), crystal statement necklace, grey skater dress, black ballet flats (above), Balenciaga part time bag (above).

Blush Blazers Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A blush blazer is a fun colour and a nice departure from a neutral black or grey. You can keep it simple and use the jacket as a colourful finishing touch on a neutral outfit like I have in the second outfit, or go a little bolder and pair the blush blazer with other colours like burgundy.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Printed Dresses and Balenciaga Bags In The Office

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm sharing two blue printed dresses I wore to the office recently with some silver giant hardware Balenciaga bags.


What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted black and grey floral crystal statement necklace (new purchase)
DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (c/o)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

This floral swing dress is such a great piece to wear on a hot day, but this is the first time I've worn it to the office. With the longer 3/4 lengths sleeves and the long knee length hem, I think it's a good option for a business casual office like mine. The swing style makes it a little more casual so I added a blazer on top to make it a bit more professional. Kept the accessories simple too with the black ballet flats and the black Balenciaga part time bag.

The floral crystal necklace is one I picked up in my opshop haul as a possible accessory to wear to a glitter themed fashion show. I ended up wearing a thrifted glitter tank instead and so have just being waiting for an opportunity to wear this necklace. Delicate crystals seem a bit over the top for the playground and pointy edges aren't the best around the boys. The office was the perfect place to wear it and it goes with the floral print on the dress nicely I thought.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, floral swing dress, black ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag. First time I've worn the necklace as it's a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

Unlike the swing dress above, this paisley print sheath dress is a frequently seen piece in the office. It's a go-to for me and a wardrobe oldie.See the first time I shared it on the blog back in 2012!

I'd actually planned another outfit to wear on this day, but the heatwave temperatures made me change my mind and so I wore this simple sheath dress instead.  It was a foggy start to the morning as you can see behind me, but warmed up to a super hot spring day. Accessorised with another thrifted necklace, this big gunmetal one was another option I bought at the opshop for the event I didn't end up using, but it also looks great worn to the office.

The purple Balenciaga work bag is often worn with this dress, I like blue and purple together!

Blue Printed Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is a great option when you're feeling uninspired and you can wear one in your favourite colour for a bit of a boost. Blue is my favourite colour! If you're worried your dress is a little too casual for the office, just add a blazer.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Long Sleeve Blouses and Pencil Skirts For Spring

Trying a new colour scheme and an old favourite for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, with some pretty blouses and textured pencil skirts.

Why I wore it:

I'd planned to wear this outfit the previous day I was in the office, but the crazy heatwave meant I changed up what I'd planned to wear then, and wore this on my other office day instead. I was glad to be able to wear this outfit at last!

Thought I'd try something a little different with the blush skirt and the berry blouse together. I really liked the colour combo, and decided to keep it simple with everything else, going without a necklace or statement earrings and just wearing black accessories. I thought the black ballet flats and Balenciaga part time bag matched the fuzzy polka dots on the skirt nicely.


Last worn: berry blouse, polka dot pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first outfit, this is a colour combo I often wear. This blue lace skirt looks great paired with other blue pieces and when I saw this blouse in the Target clearance sale I thought of wearing it with this skirt right away. Instead of a necklace I wore my Kmart gold and mustard tassel earrings, to match the gold mouse flats. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag matched the navy top and lace skirt well too.

The only downside with this outfit is that the blouse looked a bit too voluminous with the half tuck. Think I need to try tuck it all in next time. It's an awesome relaxed trapeze cut but it made tucking into this high waisted skirt a little tricky!


Last worn: navy collared blouse, mustard earrings, lace pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

How You Can Wear It:

A pencil skirt is an office staple and wearing a blouse with it creates a lovely feminine outfit. You can go monochrome and match the blouse and skirt together like I have in the second outfit, or be a little brighter and pair a colourful skirt with a jewel toned blouse like in the first outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Navy Blouses and Colourful Pants Business Casual For Spring

I love a good outfit formula, so for today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two very similar outfits I recently worn to work with colourful pants and classic navy blouses and my slouchy Balenciaga Part Time bag.

What I wore:

Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt with burgundy pants statement necklace for the office | awayfromblue

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | awayfromtheblue

Blouse: Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt (new purchase)
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

First wearing of this new navy blouse I picked up in the Target clearance sales! In the last days of the sales things are often reduced to $5, so when I needed a break from the office one lunch time I headed to target in the city to browse the sale. I got this great blouse reduced from $39 to $20 and then the extra 50% off made it $10, not a bad deal! I tried on a few other things but this was the only one that worked. The statement necklace was another new purchase and impulse buy, just $3 from the opshop! September was a month of impulse buying for me.

It's not the first time I've worn these burgundy pants with navy tops, it is a frequent go-to combo! I kept the rest of the accessories simple, with the silver ballet flats, black Balenciaga Part Time bag and metallic necklace, to let the colours be the star of the outfit.

The only thing I did notice with this blouse is that the collar on the back pulls it down quite a bit with the extra weight - as it's a flowy swing style it's not fitted enough to stay in place. I'll need to try tuck it in next time I wear it! It was nice and comfortable for work, and I like the cute piping detail along the sides of the sleeves, even if I did forget to get a good pic of it as I was so busy giving our little doggy guest some pats! She's squeezing in all the pats she can while being dog sat by us before she returns to her family.


Last worn: burgundy pants, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag. First time I've worn the navy blouse and statement necklace as they are both recent purchases.

JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first navy blouse, this one is an oldie. I picked it up on sale last year and it's been the best addition to my wardrobe. I like the studded detail for a little extra interest, and the tie at the neckline means that I didn't need to add a necklace with this. I did add my teal earrings though for a little extra colour. With the navy blouse, olive pants and teal earrings I kept the accessories simple again, going with my fave black ballet flats and my Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Just like the outfit above, these olive pants have been worn with navy before, even though it's surprisingly the first time I've worn this blouse and jeans together before. Got to love a business casual environment where people can wear jeans through the week - these olive ones look deceptively like standard pants but have all the comfort of jeans! They are so good at doing double duty for work and SAHM days.

My nails are OPI a good man-darin is hard to find, just like in the outfit above. I felt like getting this bright colour out again for spring.

How You Can Wear It:

A navy blouse is a great neutral option for work, you can pair it with some brightly coloured pants for something a little more colourful in the office. Long sleeves are a good choice too if you work in cold office air conditioning!
