Wearing Tops Over Maxi Dresses With Ankle Boots: Casual and Dressy

Following a simple outfit formula and adding a top over a printed maxi dress to make it a skirt, but creating two very different looks!

What I wore:

snake print maxi dress with Chanel vintage quilted lambskin flap | awayfromtheblue

Earrings: Kmart mustard gold tassel earrings
JacketWarehouse cropped zip detail jacket
Tank: thrifted Valleygirl metallic sequin tank (gift from my mum)
DressJeanswest grey snake print maxi dress (worn as skirt)
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

Sequins and snake print together is not my normal style of dressing, but I pushed myself out of my comfort zone a little with this outfit for the Brisbane Fashion Runway show. The theme was a touch of glitter and I think this tank nailed it perfectly!

I knew I wanted to wear this snake print maxi dress but couldn't find a sequin topper, so thrifted a few possible necklace options at the opshops after spending a few weeks fruitlessly hunting for something with sequins. None of the necklaces felt quiet right with the dress but luckily my mum found this sequin tank for just $2 in her local opshop and it was exactly what I needed! Big thanks to my mum!

Apart from the $2 tank, everything else was already in my wardrobe. The cropped black blazer is one I won in a blog giveaway years ago and considered donating it a few times. Glad I kept it as it was a much cooler day than expected with the rain all morning. Thankfully it cleared up in the afternoon for the show.

Had a really fun time despite worrying I'd feel out of place, never been to an official fashion show before but Emily and Mel were great people to go with. Big thanks to Emily for the photos too!



Last worn: cropped blazer, gold tassel earrings, snake print maxi dress, Acne pistol boots, vintage Chanel bag. First time I've worn the thrifted tank my mum found me.

Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

This was the morning after the night before! 😂 Needed something simple and comfortable after a few drinks before, during and after the fashion show! Mum life means 3 drinks in one night and staying up past my normal bed time is far too much, ha! Stuck with the same outfit formula but a lot more casual.  I love wearing this high-low maxi dress as a skirt and the grey tee was the perfect topper with it.

The black straw bag and ankle boots were simple matching accessories that made getting ready in the morning a bit easier! We made it to church but did spend the rest of the day afterwards at home, trying to relax as much as you can with two little boys!

How You Can Wear It:

For something a little different why not try layering your maxi dress and adding a tank or tee on top to wear it as a skirt? It's a simple way to change up the look of your favourite dress and create a whole new outfit.

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:

grey jersey blazer with Shein navy flower print flowy swing dress  for spring office outfit Balenciaga part time | awayfromblue

Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH with navy floral dress | awayfromblue


awayfromblue Instagram | Shein navy flower print flowy dress with jersey blazer black accessories balenciaga part time bag

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.

Necklace: thrifted statement gunmetal hardware necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

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!


Last worn: paisley print sheath dress, statement silver necklace, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga purple work bag.

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: Two Ways To Wear Kmart Teal Floral Boho Midi Dress

Two ways to wear this beautiful Kmart teal floral print midi dress I picked up on clearance for just $12! A little bit different for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, only one of these outfits was worn during the week, the other on the weekend. Thought it would be interesting to show the different ways I've styled this dress for a weekday in the office and for a kid's birthday party on the weekend.

What I wore:

kmart teal floral midi dress boho for the office with black jersey blazer flats tote bag | awayfrombue

Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram spring office outfit kmart teal floral midi dress black blazer brisbane botanic gardens
Earrings: Kmart teal tassel earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress (new purchase)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I bought this dress on impulse, but when I got it home I thought it may work for the office with the modest length and neckline. It's a little more boho than I'd usually wear to work, but I think the black blazer looked perfect with it and I got so many compliments on this in the office! I was so happy to share it was only $12 at Kmart too, haha!

To keep things simple I went with my trusty black ballet flats to wear with the black jersey blazer. These flats have been worn over 100 times and are still going strong!

To try formalise the dress a little more I added this big Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote bag, it's great for the office with the structured shape. I liked the navy with the teal dress too!


Last worn: black jersey blazer, teal earringsblack ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the dress on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

ICYMI: What I Bought Last Month







What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag with teal floral midi dress | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart teal floral print midi dress birthday party outfit with little red Rebecca Minkoff bag sunhat
Hat: Big W bow detail sunhat
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

A very different way to wear this dress! I actually wore this just a few days after the outfit above. I was that eager to wear the dress again, with a 5th birthday party to attend I knew it would be perfect. I wanted the longer sleeves for sun coverage, and the longer length was great for sitting on the floor with the kids as they enjoyed the party food. I did feel that the sunhat and the dress may have been a little too dressy for a backyard birthday party but it was the sunhat or borrowing one of my husband's baseball caps and the sunhat looked a lot better!

As it was a hot day I went with simple gold sandals, and then added a little extra colour to the teal outfit with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag. It was such a well-organised party, the boys and I had a great time. I was so glad I'd worn the hat too, we ended up sitting in the sun and making the most of the beautiful day before the storm blew in.


Last worn: sun hat, Kmart teal floral midi dress (above), rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearsun hat and maxi dress, rose gold sandals and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and printed jeans.

Perfect for pregnancysun hat in second trimester.


Floral Midi Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral midi dress is an easy one and done outfit choice, and the long sleeves mean you don't have to worry about bracelets, but you can still change up the look with accessories! You can try adding a classic blazer and tote bag for the office, and make it work on the weekends too with simple sandals, a mini bag and a sunhat for sun protection.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Jackets, Grey Tees, Pencil Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Taking advantage of the warmer spring weather in Brisbane and just wearing some light layers to the office. I wore two of my textured jackets with basic grey tees and black pencil skirts and added some colourful scarves for a brighter Weekday Wear Linkup! Even the backdrops are colourful, I stopped by the Brisbane Arcade Spring flower show to get some pretty Instagram pics!

What I wore:

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist wearing all the pink accessories! This magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag really pops against a plain grey tee and black pencil skirt outfit, and I continued the pink theme on with the tassel earrings and the striped scarf. I like how the earrings matched the tassels on the scarf, and the magenta stripes compliment the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag nicely.

With all the colour and the classic tweed textured jacket, I felt this outfit was dressed up enough for a quiet day at work with few face-to-face meetings. Sometimes I have more virtual meetings than face-to-face ones, especially with the new project I'm on.


Last worn: tweed blazer, blush tassel earrings, grey v-neck tee, black pencil skirt, Walnut Melbourne Ava ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. First time I've shared the scarf on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody

Scarf: Target Selena lightweight woven scarf in summer stripe
Tee: thrifted Cotton on grey tunic tee
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another textured jacket - this jacquard one has a metallic thread running though it so it feels a little more 'dressy' option and worked perfectly to make the slouchy and comfy grey tunic and pencil skirt outfit more suitable for a day in the office.

The threading on the jacket looks like stripes, and since I'd had fun lately wearing striped scarves with striped maxi skirts, I thought I'd give the striped scarf and striped jacket combination a try. I really liked this outfit, even if the jacket was a little bit too warm to wear during the day when my friend and I went out for a walk at lunchtime to admire the spring blooms at the Brisbane Arcade. Just like the first outfit, I liked all the pink in this outfit too, even if the scarf and bag are different shades of pink.


Last worn: jacquard jacket, striped scarf, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag (above). First time I've shared the tunic on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Textured Jackets Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey tee is a wardrobe staple for stay at home mum life, but can be dressed up for the office if you have a casual environment. A fun striped scarf can hide the casual nature of the tee, especially when paired with a formal textured jacket.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Sleeveless Tanks And Colourful Pants: Business Casual Autumn Style

The best thing about autumn weather finally arriving in Brisbane is the ability to unpack some things from their storage boxes in the wardrobe! Jeans! Scarves! It's nice to have them out again after them being hidden away during the heatwaves.

Colourful pants add a bit of fun to a business casual outfit for the office. And even though one of these pairs is jeans rather than pants, they easily pass as pants in the office (and if they didn't would fit right in to everyone else in my office wearing blue jeans)!

What I wore:

olive pants in office printed tank black blazer part time bag | awayfromblue

printed tank, Balenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH | awayfromtheblue

TopJeanswest Florence print long line tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Totally stealing my boss's style here! This kind of outfit; skinny jeans, a nice top and a blazer, is one she wears frequently in the office in cooler weather. I love pairing neutral pieces with these olive pants so black was an easy choice, and this brown printed tank is an easy neutral to wear. I did feel the outfit was a little flat though so I wanted to add a necklace - decided to step out of my comfort zone a little more and try green with green again. I thought the darker green in this necklace worked well with the olive jeans.

Yes, these are the same jeans I wore last week! I've been thrilled to get them out again with the cooler weather.

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this tank with burgundy, I layered it up with a burgundy scarf for winter before. I really like the way to pastels in the print work with the burgundy pants. I decided to try something a little different and add this pretty pastel shimmer scarf on top too. it matches the pretty but impossible to see on photos peach pastel leaf print in the tank. I really liked the scarf and tank together. I don't usually wear so many pastels but I thought it really worked here.

I just picked a grey blazer to throw on and cover my shoulders in the office.

Got quite a few compliments on this outfit too. Mainly on the scarf, a pretty gift from my mum.

Colourful Pants Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Colourful pants are a nice alternative to classic black for the office, particularly if your office is business casual where you have more options with what you wear. If your office is really casual, you could even pass off colourful jeans as pants by dressing them up with a blazer.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Tanks Worn 2 Ways: In The Office, Casually

A little bit of print mixing for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup! Showing you two different ways to wear striped tanks, in the office and casually, and doing a little print mixing by having spotty accessories with the stripes in each outfit too!

What I wore:

autumn olive and yellow print mixing stripes and leopard print outfit with kimono | awayfromblue

olive jeans adn Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Starting to realise you can't see my earrings with my new shorter haircut! 😂 I was so thrilled to wear jeans for once! I wore these a couple weeks ago, excited about the weather cooling down. Green is one of the colours I find tricky to wear and as a result these olive jeans are frequently worn with black - this striped tank seemed like an obvious choice. Added the white kimono as I wasn't sure which of my printed ones would look best with this and wanted to keep it simple!

Couldn't resist adding a little bit of leopard print to this outfit with the printed shoes too - I felt they worked nicely with the striped tank as they are the same colour scheme.

Hubby and I had an appointment to attend that unfortunately was in the middle of the day. We decided to make the most of it and take the day off. It was nice to have some quiet time at home to get caught up with a few must do tasks which are easier without the boys around!


Last worn: gold earringscrochet kimono, turquoise tassel necklace, black striped tank, olive jeans, leopard print flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

Other ways to wear: crochet kimono and shortsblack striped tank and maxi skirt, olive jeans and printed scarf, leopard print flats and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and maxi dress.

SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I felt this outfit was lacking a little something - this cute blue polka dot scarf that I got as a Christmas present from my mum was the perfect finishing piece to add to the striped tank and pencil skirt and blazer outfit. It was a nice bit of print mixing and extra touch of colour with the grey.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag added a little more colour too! I like how the magenta pops with the grey.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, striped tank, grey pencil skirt, metallic ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag. First time I've worn the scarf as it was a Christmas present.

Perfect for pregnancystriped tank in second trimester, grey pencil skirt in first trimester, metallic ballet flats in third trimester.



Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic that you can easily dress up or down. Stripes are so fun to print mix with too! Why not try introducing a small accessory with a different print for a subtle take on pattern mixing in your outfit.
