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!

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.

What I wore:

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

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.

Balenciaga vs Rebecca Minkoff Bags







What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with lace skirt Llama bag charm | away from the blue

Earrings: Kmart mustard gold tassel earrings
Top: Target Preview navy long sleeve collared shirt
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
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

awayfromtheblue Instagram | burgundy skinny pants with Target navy collared blouse with balenciaga part time bag
Necklace: thrifted statement gunmetal hardware necklace (new purchase)
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.

Other ways to wearburgundy pants for work and weekend, silver ballet flats and pencil skirt, Balenciaga Part Time bag and little black dress.

30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga Part Time

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
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!

Space Dye Tees With Bright Scarves and Colourful Skinny Jeans

Adding colour to two neutral space dye tees with scarves and different shades of denim.

I recently thrifted these two space dye tees, bringing my collection up to 3 space dye tops, all thrifted! Maybe space dye was a trend a while back and now everyone is over it? I am really loving it though, it's a nice twist on an otherwise basic tee. Both of these tees were pieces in my "fill a bag for $5" opshop sale haul.

What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top (new purchase)
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Was thrilled to get this tee new with tags in the opshop! It's just a Kmart one and the original price sticker wasn't very high but it's good to be able to give new life to a piece someone kindly donated rather than throwing away.

The black dye running through this white tee makes me a little more confident wearing it. I'm a bit clumsy so white is not my usual go to colour, but the different colours in this make it easier to wear and hopefully will make anything I do spill on it less noticeable 😂

Went matchy-matchy with this, wearing my red Alexander McQueen skull scarf and skinny jeans together. The red jeans were also a thrift find! The blue denim jacket was a nice way to wear double denim but I ended up taking it and the scarf off and on through the day as it heated up.

A busy day of getting things done as I was kid free! Tax return done, more Christmas shopping done and after running a few more errands I treated myself to a massage!


Last worn: denim biker jacket, red skinny jeans, red skull scarf, black Ballet flats, Balenciaga part time bag.  First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

Wearing more new (and new to me!) things for a busy day. We had a playdate in the park after swimming lessons, and another Lion King toy swap day, and our new fluffy family member was being dropped off before I went out for the night with some Instagrammers. It was busy but manageable until... just as we were leaving the park my son poked himself in the eye with a stick.

Added a trip to emergency to our crazy day, but thankfully the scratches were minor and we were seen pretty quickly and on our way home again to get things ready for our fluffy guest.

I like mustard and olive together so this newly purchased scarf was an obvious choice when I wanted to add a little more colour to the neutral olive jeans and peplum tee outfit. I think it worked nicely with the emerald green of the bag too! The green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag is another new purchase too!

Despite the hectic day, I liked this comfortable outfit and this tee has become a firm favourite! Such a great opshop find. I had a quick change into something more suitable for drinks and a night out - after the hectic day I was looking forward to just relaxing, and changing out of this dirt and tear stained outfit after the stick incident!


Last worn: olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag. First time I've worn the scarf and tee on the blog as they are recent purchases.

Other ways to wearolive skinny jeans for long-haul flight, gold mouse flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag and matching necklace.

Space Dye Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic tee is a wonderful wardrobe basic for mum life and a space dye effect adds just a little more interest to a neutral piece. It's so easy to change up the look each time you wear it by adding colourful accessories like scarves, bags, or bright jeans.

Adding Colour To Neutral Knits With Skinny Jeans & Balenciaga Bags

The simple outfit formulas are ones I keep coming back to! Cosy neutral knits, skinny jeans and Balenciaga bags with a touch of colour make an easy outfit for a mum. While I wore these back in winter last month they would work on a cold spring day too!

What I wore:

JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

A busy but fun filled day! Had to take my son to an appointment before Kindy and then drop him off at Kindy a little later. It was a stressful morning trying to fit everything in but I had the whole afternoon to myself before Kindy pickup. I headed to the opshop to drop off three boxes of things we no longer wanted, and had a little browse of the clothes as they had a fill a bag for $5 sale on.

I certainly made the most of being kid free, trying on a basket and arm full of clothes and filling up a bag for the boys and a bag for myself - 19 pieces all together! Not bad for $10! Made some time to film some videos before going to pickup the kids too.

I like wearing this ombre knit with my colourful denim collection, I think the neutral colours work well with brights and it's the first time I've worn these green jeans and knit together. I really liked the combination.

I added the black Balenciaga part time bag as it fit everything I needed for the appointment, but I did wonder if I should have worn black ballet flats instead of these tan ones with the black bag. Still liked my outfit though!


Last worn: ombre knit, coin pendant necklace, green skinny jeans, camel flats, Balenciaga black part time bag.

Why I wore it:

Wearing a similar outfit again, cosy knit and skinny jeans but this time I stuck with a classic black pair of jeans and added the colour through my accessories. This pink Fashion Scarf Girl crinkle scarf, while a different shade from the Balenciaga city bag, makes such a nice combination worn together. I've worn the scarf and bag together before here too!

This was a nice simple and colourful outfit for church. I like how the foil polkas dots on the grey knit are subtle enough that I can wear it with anything!

How You Can Wear It:

On a colder day, a cosy knit is a staple with skinny jeans! You can try changing up your outfit a little by adding some colour to a neutral knit  - by swapping classic blue jeans for a brighter pair, or adding some colourful accessories like a scarf or bag.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Pencil Skirts In The Office With Brighter Scarves

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm wearing two different textured pencil skirts to the office. I love wearing pencil skirts to work, even in winter, and these textured ones add a nice bit of interest. With the black in them, they work so nicely with my fleece-lined tights too!

What I wore:


JacketJeanswest Monica Mac coat in Indigo
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TopJeanswest 'Aubrey' pintuck yoke henley in deep teal
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

I really like blue and green together, so I thought this teal henley would go nicely with the navy jacquard pencil skirt. Surprisingly, despite them both being old pieces in my wardrobe, I've never worn both of them together before! I thought I'd definitely worn the cobalt scarf with the teal top at least, but nope that was a new pairing too!

With the navy skirt and blue scarf, I thought my navy mac was a good outerwear choice. It helped the teal henley stand out more too I think! The black Balenciaga part time bag is such an easy accessory, it goes with everything.


Last worn: navy mac coat, cobalt scarf, teal henley, jacquard pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag.

Other ways to wearnavy mac coat and colourful pants, cobalt scarf and grey dress, teal henley and a-line skirt, jacquard pencil skirt and purple tee, black ballet flats and jeans, Balenciaga Part Time bag and shorts.

What I wore:

BlouseJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Another textured pencil skirt, this one again an old wardrobe favourite. Unlike the outfit combination above though, this black henley blouse is frequently worn with the pastel pink textured pencil skirt. It's a simple choice as it matches the black polka dots on the scarf nicely. The camel trench coat is another frequently worn piece with the skirt, as is the black Balenciaga part time bag.

For something a little different I picked this magenta skull scarf to really pop against the black and add a little bit of colour. Much bolder than the pastel pink of the pencil skirt, but I thought it complimented it perfectly.

How You Can Wear It:

A textured pencil skirt is a fun addition to your work wardrobe, and just as wearable as a plain black option. You can go very colourful and pair the skirt with a brighter top and scarf, or keep it simple with a plain black blouse.
