Olive Embroidered Pieces: Tanks and Soft Shorts

Making the most of the autumn heatwave where it felt like summer just a few weeks ago and wearing some more tanks and soft shorts outfits. I picked these green tanks to wear after seeing a post on Jodie's blog about wearing different shades of green, and realised these tanks were overdue a wear.

What I wore:

awayfromblue instagram olive embroidered tank, black printed shorts, rebecca minkoff camera bag
Tank: Target embroidered khaki tank
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I had thought about wearing a kimono with this outfit, but when it was 39 degrees (102 Fahrenheit) I decided to keep it simple with just the tank and soft shorts. Spent one of my usual days with the boys, attending the playground and library in the morning and trying to fit in a few errands too. We didn't spend long at the playground though due to the heat!

This olive embroidered tank was a complete impulse buy from the Target sale rack a couple of years ago and every time I wear it I'm grateful to my past self for picking it up! It worked perfectly for breastfeeding, the long loose style letting me pull it up on one side while still keeping my belly covered. And on a hot day the loose flowing fabric was perfectly cool.

Paired with some light shorts and then the rose gold sandals to match the gold hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag, perfect outfit.


Last worn: olive embroidered tank, black printed shorts, rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This was the outfit that came to mind when talking with Jodie in the comments of her blog post, about trying two green pieces together. I thought this striped tank would be a nice match with the olive embroidered shorts. I was surprised when I put the two together and realised the tank wasn't as olive as I'd thought, more of a khaki! I decided to try it anyway, but at the last minute added a bit of brightness to all the neutrals with the plain white kimono.

I have a lot of kimonos in my collection, and this plain white one comes in helpful when I can't decide what printed one to wear, as it goes with everything! It came in helpful at the playground too for a bit of a blocker against the mozzies, they have been particularly bad in the Bayside lately!

Again I stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag, the tan is a nice neutral with the olive tones. Picked closed in shoes as it was a little cooler, and Converse are so comfortable for running around the playground with the boys.

Perfect for pregnancygreen and grey striped tank in second trimester, Converse in second trimester.


Olive Embroidered Pieces Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

I find green a tricky colour to wear, but olive is a nice neutral! You can play it safe like I have in the first outfit by wearing it with other neutrals, black and tan and gold all work nicely. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can branch out a little more and try two green pieces together like I have in the second outfit with the olive embroidered shorts, for something a little different.

V-Neck Tees, Printed Kimonos and Mini MAC Bags: SAHM Style

Kimonos aren't just summer pieces for me. I like to wear them in spring and autumn too! They just add an extra level of interest to an otherwise plain shorts and tee outfit. With the outfits below, I picked a kimono where the print matched the colour of the tee I was wearing. You know I like a little matchy-matchy!

What I wore:

Target Karolina summer kimono in purple black floral with lilac v-neck tee aqua mini mac bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this aquamarine bag with purple, I really like the combination. It was the perfect accessory to pair with the purple v-neck tee and the purple floral kimono.

Busy morning with a few errands to run and a quick dentist appointment for toddler T before his swimming lessons. He did really well, helped I'm sure by the fact that they were playing Paw Patrol on the TV in the ceiling, he just laid back and watched the show the whole time, haha!

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another day with the kids trying to run errands meant another simple outfit was needed. When I got this coral tee home after picking it up in the sales, I knew I had to try this outfit combination with it, and wore it just a couple days after buying the tee. The bright coral colour was such a good match for the orangey reds in the print of this Kindness collective kimono! Such a winning combination paired together.

While it wasn't a very exciting day, I did love wearing this outfit and I am sure to try pairing this coral tee and the printed kimono together again soon! Such a fun bit of matchy-matchy-ness!

Stuck with silver for the accessories, with the silver pendant necklace and Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag to be a balancing neutral for all the colour and print.

How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is such a staple outfit. To add a little extra interest to your outfit, you can put a fun printed kimono on top. It's a nice way to change up the look of a shorts and tee outfit without much fuss. If you're unsure, you can always pick a kimono with a print that matches the colour of the tee you're wearing for an easy, cohesive look.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Printed A-line Skirts and Plain Tees With Marc Jacobs Fran Bag

Another Weekday Wear linkup, and trying something different with my workwear, getting out these pretty printed skirts I haven't worn in a while! While continuing to wear plain tees, a theme that has been a frequent choice on the blog lately 😂

What I wore:

mustard pleated print a-line skirt white tee jersey blazer business casual autumn | awayfromblue

mustard pleated skirt Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Carob brown fran bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram | business casual autumn office printed pleated a-line skirt jersey blazer outfit
Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This outfit got a lot of love on Instagram and in the office - I don't know why I don't wear this skirt more often! It makes me smile when I wear it and it's great just-below the knee length so it works in the office. I do try pair it with plain tops to let the skirt be the focus of the outfit.

Usually I'll go for black tops with it, but decided to try this white tee with it. Added the blazer on top as it was a little cooler in the morning, and so it dressed up the plain v-neck white tee a little more for the office. When you're having a meeting surrounded by people wearing jeans though it's not really a necessity at my workplace, I just like to try make the outfit a little more formal.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag has been worn with this skirt in the past, but the necklace is new, one of the ones I got from Christmas I just hadn't worn yet. I think this plain tee was the perfect backdrop for it. I really liked this outfit.


Last worn: black jersey blazer, gold earringswhite v-neck tee, mustard printed pleated skirt, black ballet flats, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag. First time I've worn the necklace.

Other ways to wearblack jersey blazer and jeans, white v-neck tee and floral kimono, mustard printed pleated skirt and graphic tee, black ballet flats and LBD, Marc By Marc Jacobs Fran bag in capsule wardrobe.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

Another new accessory! These mini tassel earrings were another Christmas gift, I thought they went quite nicely with the autumnal colours on the silk skirt. Again, I stuck with the outfit formula I loved so much above. A pretty printed skirt, a plain v-neck tee in black this time and a grey jersey blazer.

The blazer wasn't really needed. We had a big meeting in the afternoon which took up almost half the day, but it was an internal one so I didn't need to dress up for clients!

Felt quite warm that day so didn't wear the blazer much in the office anyway.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, black v-neck tee, pendant necklace, leaf print silk skirt, Marc Jacobs mouse flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag (above). First time I've worn the earrings.

Printed A-Line Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty a-line printed skirt in a modest knee length is a nice alternative to a pencil skirt for office wear, while still fitting in with business casual dress codes. If you are worried it might look a little too casual, you can always add a blazer on top to look more formal for impromptu last minute meetings.

Plain Tees, Maxi Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

Wearing some plain tees with maxi skirts and the cutest Rebecca Minkoff love bag for easy mum style. I picked my Rebecca Minkoff love bag to wear as I felt it was overdue a wear!

What I wore:


Jeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral, target navy stripe maxi skirt mum style | awayfromblue

navy stripes, Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | red tee navy stripe maxi skirt rebecca Minkoff love bag
Necklace: Kmart blue multi-colour beaded necklace
TeeJeanswest Emily cotton v-neck tee in coral
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

When I saw this tee in store I thought it was a very bright red, even though the tag says coral. I think the camera picks up the orange of it a bit more. It's such a vibrant colour, but in a basic v-neck tee it's still so easy to wear.

Paired with my striped maxi skirt and again the Rebecca Minkoff love bag, this was a simple and comfortable outfit. I've worn a very similar outfit before with a different red tee! Went to the playground and library with the boys and ran a few errands afterwards.


Last worn: blue beaded necklace, striped maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Love bagFirst time I've worn the coral tee as it is a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

Again, repeating an outfit formula I loved and wearing the same thing a few days later just with different pieces. I stuck with the red and blue combo though!

It's not the first time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt with a red top. I had to double check in my blog archives that I hadn't worn this plain red tee with the maxi skirt before, it seems like such an obvious combination! I love the way this tee works with blue denim. A nice casual and comfortable outfit was needed for a quiet day, daycare drop off and working from home before doing the pickup.

The Rebecca Minkoff love bag is a classic and the structured shape dresses up a casual tee and maxi skirt outfit a little more.

(First two are the ones I'm wearing in this post, I recommend sizing down)


How You Can Wear It:

Red and blue is a fun colour combination - and as you can see from the navy and coral and red and chambray outfits, it's something you can try in any shade! Wearing a maxi skirt instead of jeans is a good way to break out of a jeans and tee rut, while still having all the comfort and coverage of jeans.

Plain Tees, Floral Kimonos and Denim Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

You can't beat denim and a kimono for an easy mum outfit. It's autumn and I'm still posting denim shorts outfits! Partly because I have a backlog of outfit pics (I post 6 outfits a week so I can have a day 'off' but sometimes I take a pic every day), partly because autumn officially starts on the first of March but it often takes Brisbane weather a little while to catch up! One of the benefits of living in a tropical climate. 🌞

What I wore:

TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Unlike the last time I wore this kimono, I didn't need it for sun protection! I was studying for my big exam and feeling the pressure with a few days to go. With the humidity and threat of further rain, I decided to take them indoors and we headed to the local McDonald's playground! I was suitably sugared up for studying with a massive hot chocolate as the boys played in the playground. We ended up having lunch there too before heading home.

The longer sleeves on this kimono worked perfectly for spending a couple of hours in the aircon studying. It adds a fun touch of colour with the black tee too, and I think the magenta worked so nicely with the turquoise bag and necklace. I just had to match the necklace and bag together, you know I love a bit of machy-matchy.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Again with the same necklace! Although I didn't match it to my bag this time.

Just like the last time I wore this olive tee and these black denim shorts together, I felt I needed to add a little something. Last time I added a light scarf for an extra colour and print, this time around I stuck with the navy colour but picked this pretty floral kimono instead. It's such a fun one to wear, the cocoon style is like being wrapped up in a big hug!

With the pink in the floral print, this neon pink mini MAC bag seemed like a good choice, and it really pops with the navy, olive and black neutrals.

Just a normal quiet weekend, grocery shopping and swimming lessons, before trying to get more study in in the afternoon when the boys were at the park with their dad.

Floral Kimonos Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral kimono is a fun way to add a little extra colour or interest to an otherwise plain jeans and tee outfit. You can match your accessories to the colours in the print like in the second outfit, or pick a completely different colour like in the first outfit, to add even more colour.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Wrap Dresses, Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

No April fools here! Just my go-to work outfit formula when I'm feeling uninspired (a printed dress) and another Weekday Wear Linkup at the end of the post!

What I wore:

Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress black blazer regan tote | awayfromblue

llama bag charm, Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram geometric print faux wrap dress jersey blazer rebecca minkoff regan bag
Earrings: Kmart navy tassel earrings

Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
Dress: Target Dannii Minogue Petites printed faux wrap dress
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Because I wasn't feeling very inspired when thinking up what to wear, I went with this simple faux wrap dress, navy earrings to match the navy bag and black ballet flats to match the blazer. Nice and simple.

A slightly chiller morning with some rain, so I wore my blazer for my commute to work. I usually have a blazer or cardigan with me to battle the cold aircon at work! This faux wrap dress is sleeveless so the blazer was appreciated, especially as it started raining while I took pics. I usually stay away from faux wraps being petite, but this is from the Target Danni Minogue petites's range so hits at the perfect spot!

The necklace was a last minute addition and something I think didn't work that well with the dress - a different length of necklace would have been better.


Last worn: navy tassel earrings, black blazer, silver circle necklace, geometric print faux wrap dress, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearblack blazer and jeans, geometric print faux wrap dress and trench coat, black ballet flats and pencil skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and navy blouse.

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I had a cardigan in my bag to wear over this short sleeved dress in the office too, but as it was a warmer autumn morning I didn't need it to keep me warm while taking photos.

It's not the first time I've worn this wrap dress with the Regan bag and the camel ballet flats - as I pointed out on Instagram, if a combination works, why change it? I like trying something different when I rewear things, even if it's just changing an accessory, but I'll happily completely copy things I've worn before. Even if I did slightly change the outfit this time by picking a different necklace!

Weekday Wear Linkup! Frill Sleeve Tees and Pencil Skirts

A new week and a new weekday wear linkup! This week I'm sharing some business casual outfits that are more on the casual side, with frill sleeve tees and pencil skirts. Come link up your weekday wear below!

What I wore:

navy frill sleeve tee with grey pencil skirt yellow beaded statement necklace for the office | awayfromblue

navy tee and Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy with heart tassel bag charm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | navy frill sleeve tee with tote bag grey pencil skirt and leopard print flats yellow statement necklace

TeeJeanswest Ruby frill sleeve Ric Rac detailed tee in deep iris (on sale!)
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava White leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

I really like blue and yellow together, so I when I wanted a statement necklace to help dress up this navy tee a little I settled on this yellow beaded one quite quickly! I really liked the combination. The #summerStyleFile style challenge on Instagram had leopard as the prompt, so I decided to add just a little leopard print with these fun Walnut Melbourne ballet flats. Worked so nicely with the neutral outfit.

I had a pretty quiet day at work - but did have a blazer handy to further dress up my tee in case an unexpected meeting came up. And for when the office aircon got too cold!


Last worn: navy frill sleeve tee, yellow statement necklace, black pencil skirt, leopard print ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote.

In Case You Missed It: I Donated My Hair!


I shared this over on YouTube this weekend, I cut a massive 38 cm off my hair to donate it to Variety (to make wigs for kids with cancer).

I still have quite a backlog of long hair pics to get through before you'll see my shorter locks pop up on the blog.








What I wore:

hot pink frill sleeve tee jeanswest black pencil skirt statement crystal necklace business casual office style | away from blue

TeeJeanswest Ruby frill sleeve tee in fuchsia
Skirt:  Jeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
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 liked the outfit combo above so much, I wore the same thing again the next day I was in the office. I picked a sparkly crystal statement necklace this time to go with the hot pink frill sleeve tee. I did feel that the pink tee made the necklace a bit muted - the pink crystals blended in a bit. Probably won't wear the two together again, its' a combination that worked better in my head than in person!

I had a bunch of meetings, but they were all virtual ones so my tee was perfectly appropriate. I ended up wearing my blazer for most of the day anyway, we were working in a different area of the office and my desk was right under the aircon vents!


Last worn: pink frill sleeve tee, statement crystal necklace, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote (above).

Other ways to wearpink frill sleeve tee and printed shorts, black pencil skirt and stripes, black ballet flats and printed dress, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote and sheath dress.

Perfect for pregnancyblack pencil skirt in second trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in first trimester.




Frill Sleeve Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A frill sleeve tee is a great twist on a classic tee, while remaining easy to wear. It can be dressed up for a business casual environment with a pencil skirt and statement necklace, or you could add a blazer if your dress code is more formal. It does hide the fun sleeves though!
