Ruffle Camis and Blue Pencil Skirts For The Office | Weekday Wear Linkup

Summer time means I get my camis out, and wonder why I never wear them! These spaghetti strap ruffle camis are so fun to wear, even though in most offices you'll have to cover them up, with a cardigan like I did in the first outfit, or a blazer in the second. I've got another edition of my weekly linkup you can join at the end too!

What I wore:

NecklaceRuby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
CamiJeanswest 'Maria' cami in cream
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As mentioned above, I did throw a cardi on over this in the office, but it was much too hot that morning to take pics with it on!

When I was thinking up what to wear to work I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn these pieces together before! They are both older pieces in my wardrobe, and I've worn this blue lace skirt with white tops in the past, just not this cami. I really liked the combination. Simple for a hot day and the subtle pleated texture to the cami worked really well with the textured pencil skirt I thought.

Of course with the navy skirt I had to pick a navy bag, so I went with this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag for a little matchy-matchy. This bag is a great neutral base, perfect for further accessorising so I added my new llama keychain. 😂 I have a lot of fun bag charms, but this one made me smile as soon as I saw it and I knew I had to buy it right away! I added more colour to my outfit with this dotty necklace, such a great accessory with the blue and white.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

A little cooler this morning (although not by much!) so I had my blazer on in photos. This cami looks a bit rumpled in the photos, but it was a pleasure to wear. Again, it was a simple outfit, I like peach and navy together so the jacquard skirt and plain ruffle cami seemed like a good pairing. I was in a bit of a rush that morning though and not feeling the best, so a hastily half tucked cami is what you get!

I actually wasn't sure I'd make it through the whole day at work, but with a lot of meetings I powered through and got to the end of the day. Overall I liked this outfit as much as the one above, I just didn't enjoy wearing it as much as I wasn't feeling the best!

Ruffle Camis Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A classic cami and pencil skirt is a work staple! In most offices, spaghetti straps are frowned on or just not allowed in the office dress code. It's easy to cover up and make your look a little more formal with a blazer, perfect for a day of meetings! Or if your office is a little more casual like mine you could just throw a cardigan on top.

New Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Dresses and Pink Balenciaga City Bag: Summer Office Outfits

Two simple summer office outfits, with two pretty printed dresses and a pink Balenciaga city bag. All pieces I love and have worn before, but I do have something new to share with you - a new outfit linkup!

What I wore:

paisley print french connection blue sheath dress with balenciaga pink sorbet city bag | awayfromblue

paisley print dress with 2010 pink balenciaga sorbet city bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram paisley print sheath dress pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag summer office outfit
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Sometimes I find the square neckline of this sheath dress a little tricky to accessorise, I often debate for a while each morning about what necklace to wear. This long pendant necklace has been a frequently worn one lately though, so I decided to give it a go and I really liked the combination!

The paisley print dress and pink Balenciaga city bag are frequently worn together, I really like pink and blue! And as I had a gold necklace, these gold mouse flats were an obvious shoe choice. Really easy summer office style. I did have a blazer too for the cold aircon in the office, but it was much too hot to wear it for photos in the morning.


Last worn: long tassel necklace, paisley print sheath dress, gold mouse flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Other ways to wearpaisley print sheath dress and blazer, gold mouse flats and pencil skirt, Balenciaga sorbet city bag in winter.

DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
BeltRebecca Minkoff Liv double wrap velvet belt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

It was a little cooler this morning (although not by much) so I wore my blazer for the pics. Again I picked a gold necklace to wear with the blue printed dress, this Kmart one is another frequently worn one, and so cheap too! For the blazer, shoes and belt I went with black, due to the darker colours in the Ikat print of the dress.

While the blue print in this dress is darker than the one above, I still think the pink Balenciaga city bag is a fun accessory with it - it really pops with the darker background.

A little bit of a quieter day at work meant the opportunity to get some training in too which was wonderful - we have an online training site but I so rarely get the opportunity to use it and there were some courses I've been wanting to do for a while!


Last worn: black jersey blazer, blue and gold necklace, Ikat print dress, velvet belt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag (above).

Other ways to wearjersey blazer and jeans, Ikat print dress with green, velvet belt over a blazer, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Balenciaga sorbet city bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyblack jersey blazer in third trimester, Ikat print dress in third trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester, Balenciaga sorbet city bag in second trimester.



Blue Printed Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is such an easy office option as you can just pull-on and go. You can always accessorise with a nice neutral like all the black pieces I wore in the second outfit, or make a brightly coloured dress even brighter with a bold bag like the pink Balenciaga city.

Printed Tanks and Pencil Skirts For The Office With Rebecca Minkoff MAM Bag

I think the one item of clothing I have most of in my wardrobe is printed tanks! They work so well for my casual stay at home mum days, but also in the office too with a blazer on top. The two I'm wearing below are some of my favourites, gifts from my mum. Keeping things simple and letting the printed tanks be the stars of my outfits, I picked neutrals for everything else, including this grey Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

What I wore:

pencil skirt and blazer with Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey | awayfromtheblue

TankJeanswest Elissa leaf print tank
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

As much as I loved this outfit, it was my hair that got a lot of love on Instagram 😅 It's day 3 of the curls from when I curled my hair for our annual Christmas family photo. This is the hair curler I use.

I felt with the relaxed hair and long tassel necklace, the grey blazer was the perfect way to dress this outfit up a bit more for a busy day with a few big meetings. I had a bit of a giggle when I went to write this post and realised everything is from Jeanswest, except the shoes and bag! The jersey blazer and pencil skirt were comfortable and perfect for the cooler office, despite the warmer day outside.

With the pastel pink, red and blue in the print of the tank and the turquoise tassel on the necklace, I thought this grey Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag was the perfect neutral accessory to wear with it. And it felt like a while since I last wore the bag, it was definitely overdue a wear!

What's In My Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB

awayfromblue instagram red crochet printed tank and pencil skirt summer office style Rebecca Minkoff mam bag
Necklace: silver heart long pendant necklace
Tank: Emerson crochet lace bib print top
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

This tank always makes me smile when I wear it. Red is a cheerful colour to wear,  and I also like this as I've had it for a few years and wore it through my pregnancies with my boys. It's nice being able to enjoy a piece in your wardrobe you've had for years.

I've worn this top casually with jeans and a few times to the office with pencil skirts. Like the printed tank above, I think it looks lovely tucked into a classic black pencil skirt. I picked a simpler silver heart pendant necklace to wear with this, and silver ballet flats to match the necklace and hardware on the MAM bag. I did have a cover up for in the office too, but it was much too hot and humid in the morning to want to take a pic with it on. I shared a pic with my cosy cardi on Twitter.

Of course I couldn't stop at just the shoes, bag and necklace matching, I had to add a red hair tie to my hair to tie in with the print on the tank! I bought a huge bunch of colourful hair ties in a Priceline sale a while back and every now and then I'll be able to match the hair tie to my outfit!

Printed Tanks Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank can easily work for a business casual office. It's a fun way to add a little colour to a neutral suit or suit separates. If you need to dress a little more formally, you can cover up the casual tank with a blazer to make it look more office appropriate. The blazer has the added bonus of keeping you warm in the cold air con too!

Printed Dresses For The Office With Colourful Scarves and Balenciaga Bags

When I'm feeling uninspired picking workwear I make things easy on myself and pull on a printed dress! While both of these dresses are different styles and prints, they solved my 'no idea what to wear' dilema by becoming instant, easy outfits. I added some bright scarves and Balenciaga bags and I was ready for the office!

What I wore:

fern print black dress, jersey blazer, ankle boots and colourful pink purple blue accessories spring office wear | awayfromblue

Balenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag | awayfromblue

instagram awayfromtheblue black dress for the office with blue scarf, purple balenciaga work bag pink earrings
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink (giveaway prize)
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
DressLeona Edmiston Jemima fern print dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked the colours in this outfit, with pink blue and purple together. Not the first time I've worn that combination to the office. The pink statement earrings were won in a giveaway and I thought they worked perfectly with the pink fern print on the dress. Despite the earrings being gold and the hardware on the bag being silver, I think because they are far enough apart from each other the combination still works.

Originally when I'd put this together I had planned to wear my purple scarf, to match my purple bag. A text from my colleague the evening before reminding me we needed to wear blue that day made me pick this Louis Vuitton shawl instead. I adore this scarf so much, it's so cosy! As it's always cold in the office, I kept it on all day and matched the rest of the team wearing blue perfectly.

The ankle boots were a necessity with the cooler morning. Despite thinking the week before it was time to retire my tights, I was happy to have them this morning with the overcast and cooler day with lots of rain forecast.

BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

A completely different look even though this follows the same outfit formula as the one above. I even wore the same blazer. I can't believe it's taken me this long to wear the orange crinkle scarf with this printed orange sheath dress, it's the perfect matchy-matchy layer!

With all of the colour in my scarf and outfit, I decided to go with neutral accessories this time, letting the scarf and dress be the touch of colour against all of the black. I really liked this outfit. You might recall me saying a few times I'm wary of wearing black with the orange dress as it reminds me of Halloween but I think it worked really well. When I was popping out to get lunch one of the sales people standing on the street complimented my outfit as I ran past shaking my head. Was nice of them to do that, but I was too busy to stop to see what they were selling!

Printed Dresses For The Office Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Printed dresses are an easy and quick outfit to put together for the office. You can accessorise them with bright and colourful scarves. You could try using the scarf to introduce another bold colour to your outfit like the first pics, or by matching the scarf to a colour in the print of your dress like the last outfit.

Textured Jackets, Grey Pencil Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote

When the weather warmed up a little it was good to leave my trench coats behind and wear some lighter jackets better suited to spring. As both of these jackets are textured I kept the rest of my outfit simple, with neutral shoes, a big navy tote and plain tops with grey pencil skirts.

What I wore:

jacquard blazer, navy boho blouse, grey jersey pencil skirt spring business casual outfit | awayfromblue

fashion scarf girl family tree print in blue tied on Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy bag | awayfromtheblue

TopJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I knew that this light blue family tree print scarf would work really nicely with the navy blue blouse. I wasn't too happy with how it looked with the busy jacquard jacket though. I knew I'd appreciate the scarf in the cold office air con, so decided at the last minute to accessorise my bag a bit by knotting the scarf on it. I think the blue scarf worked just as nicely with the navy tote as it did with the navy blouse when I wore it to keep warm in the office.

With the metallic thread running through the jacket, the silver ballet flats were an obvious choice, I do like a bit of matchy matchy, with even the top and bag matching too.

This pencil skirt is a comfortable grey jersey I sometimes worry is a little too casual, but for a mostly quiet day with little face to face meetings it was perfect. And it doesn't look out of place when others in the office are wearing jeans!

More Ways To Accessorise A Bag:


Just like in the outfit above, you can change the look of your bags a little by accessorising them. I share tying a scarf on them and 5 other ways you can accessorise your handbags in this video:






What I wore:

TopJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Since I loved the plain top, textured jacket and grey pencil skirt combo, I tried it again the next time I was in the office. This time around, with the black boucle jacket and plain black top, I felt the outfit needed a bit of colour. I decided to wear this colourful parrot print scarf. Despite the busy texture of the jacket, I think the printed scarf worked well as the top of my outfit was all black, unlike the first outfit.

I really enjoyed wearing this - and the more formal fabric of the pencil skirt made me feel suitably attired for a couple of big meetings I had during the day. I was glad when the day was over though, it was such a busy afternoon, I even had to cancel lunch with hubby to get more work done.

Textured Jackets Under $50




How You Can Wear It:

Textured jackets are a nice alternative to a plain jacket and add some extra interest to your outfit. To keep things simple, you can wear them with plain, block colour pieces and let the jacket shine and be the statement part of your outfit. They work nicely in the office, fitting in with any dress code.

Two Ways To Wear: Coca-Cola Stripe Logo Tee

Most of my opshop purchases are impulse buys, like this tee! It's rare for me to have enough luck to go thrifting for something specific and find it. I was so thrilled to come across this striped Coca Cola logo tee though, for just $1 (the whole rack was 8 pieces for $4, but there is limited browsing time when your child suddenly announces he needs to pee!). Since logo tees are perfectly on trend, I knew it would be an easy piece to add to my wardrobe. Here's two different ways I've worn it. Both involving a little print mixing!

What I wore:

print mixing red maxi skirt outfit with stripe coca cola logo tee ankle boots denim jacket | awayfromblue

red boho print maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram denim jacket red boho print maxi skirt Rebecca Minkoff love bag guitar strap
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
Skirt:  thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoes: Asos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

Why I wore it:

A not so chilly winter morning meant I could take my opportunity to wear my denim jacket. It's going to sit unworn in my wardrobe for a couple months until winter is over now! It wasn't too cold to wear in the morning but was a little cooler in the evening. The Chelsea leather ankle boots helped keep me cosy too.

I did the day car drop off and pick up and worked from home. This outfit was perfect for that, I do really like this red maxi skirt with the denim jacket, and I wanted to wear that combination again (I last wore the denim jacket and red maxi skirt here). I thought the striped tee was a good print mix with the print on the skirt, and the red logo tied in perfectly. I really loved this outfit!

Was all so easy to put together, and so comfortable.

JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Another little touch of print mixing with this tee. Unlike the outfit above, I did wish this outfit was a little warmer when I sat outside in the playground with the boys. It was so funny as the kids were running around playing happily and us mums were shivering and trying to find the warmest (sunny and not as windy) spots to watch the kids playing!

Aside from wishing I'd worn something a bit warmer than a blazer, I did like this outfit. I wanted to pick out the navy stripes from this tee for a bit of matchy-matchy. This bird print scarf was so perfect. I loved the colour combo and the print mixing was nice too. I've worn this scarf with stripes before and enjoyed it then too.

I did add just a little touch of red with the bag - the red logo is fun as a pop of red on it's own, and I'll need to try that next time I wear it, but if you've read my blog a while you will know I can't resist a little matchy matchy-ness!

Coca Cola Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:
Stripes are such an easy print to try print mixing with. If you're not a fan of print mixing though, you can still take some inspiration from the outfits above. Pick out a colour from your logo or striped tee and wear coordinating pieces like the red skirt in the first outfit, or coordinating accessories like the red dress and navy scarf in the second outfit.
