Weekday Wear Linkup: Feather Print Scarves & Pencil Skirts For Winter Office Wear

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm wearing two similar pencil skirt outfits for work with some fun feather detail scarves. One is a feather print scarf and the other is embroidered feathers. Both are wonderfully cosy!

What I wore:

camel trench coat, feather print scarf, white jumper, blush polka dot pencil skirt, Mulberry bayswater | awayfromblue

oak NVT Mulberry heritage bayswater bag | awayfromtheblue

Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
Scarf: Nali feather print pashmina scarf
Jumper: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold day when I wore this! I know I've worn this pencil skirt recently but I really wanted to wear it again, this time with a cosy white knit that's originally from my mums wardrobe. Even the ribbed jumper wasn't enough to keep me warm though, the taupe feather print scarf was a must have for the cold morning. So were the ankle boots!

With all of the neutrals I went with my pink tassel earrings to add a little more colour, even though it's a brighter pink than the blush of the skirt I think it worked nicely.

What's In My Bag: Mulberry Bayswater

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt:  Jeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I felt a bit flustered this morning! The weather was much warmer, which meant me ditching the knit I'd planned to wear the night before, and just wearing a grey tee under my navy coat. I still wanted to wear my pretty feather embroidered scarf though, and I thought the darker grey worked nicely with the lighter grey of the tee.

With having to change my outfit at the last minute because of the weather, and already running a little late, I had a very rushed start to the day, especially after taking the first few photos with my bag facing backwards, and having to retake them again so you could actually see the detail on the Mulberry bayswater bag! Thankfully the day improved from there.

Feather Print Scarves Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple neutral top works well with a pencil skirt in the office. You can wear a knit if it's colder or a casual tee when it warms up a little. You can add a scarf for some extra interest and warmth in your daily commute too, and a printed or embroidered one is a great idea if your top is a basic neutral.

Knotted Knits Over Maxi Dresses With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag

My previous post was all about wearing cosy knits with maxi skirts, today I'm showing you how I wear knits and maxi dresses together. Using a petite style hack when a top is too long for my shorter frame - just tie a knot in it! It works well with a soft knit and a maxi dress when otherwise the knit would be too long to hit at a flattering length.

What I wore: 

marle knit jumper knotted over high low maxi dress with ankle boots love bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey with blue and purple outfit | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | knotted blue marle knit jumper over ruffle hem high low printed maxi dress dinner outfit
Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

This cobalt knit is one of my favourites to pull out every winter! Thrifted back in 2015, it's always so fun to wear, and I was even wearing it in my previous post too! With 13 wears so far it's doing pretty well! Much too thin for colder climates, it's perfect for Brisbane winter.

I like how the blue knit matches the blue in the print of the maxi dress! With bare legs and ankle boots, as I wore this out for a big family dinner at my parents and didn't have to be outside much - the high-low hem of the maxi dress kept my bare legs mostly covered and warm. The pink necklace doesn't match the shade of pink in the print exactly but seemed like a nice complimentary colour, and with the colourful dress, blue knit and pink necklace, the grey Rebecca Minkoff Love bag was a nice neutral choice.

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Knit: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Again, wearing my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag as a neutral against a bright maxi dress with a knotted jumper, but this time I picked this grey marle knit. It's a tunic length on me, with an uneven hem, so there was a lot of fabric to tie up! I decided to tie it more in the centre, and make it more of a feature than how I tied the first knit off to the side.

Apart from one moment where this knit came unfurled just as we got to church, it stayed in place all day and I quite liked this different way of wearing it. I'm guessing I'll be wearing knits over spaghetti strap maxi dresses like this more next winter too!


Last worn: grey marle knit, navy tassel necklace, tiered maxi dress, tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag (above).

Marle Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A pretty spaghetti strip maxi dress can easily be worn in cooler weather with a cosy knit on top! If you're petite or want to add some extra definition to the outfit, you can knot the knit at your waist. Experiment with different knots depending on the jumper - you can create different looks with different knots and knot placement.

Soft Knits And Maxi Skirts In Winter With Cross Body Bags

I love layering up my maxi skirts a little more for winter! A cosy comfy knit it a great pairing with a maxi skirt, for maximum comfort and extra warmth on a winter day.

What I wore:

Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black with chambray skirt | awayfromtheblue

Knit: SES fashions mustard marle knit jumper
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold and windy day when I wore this - as you can see from my outfit being blown around a bit! It was so hard to get a pic without my scarf or hair over my face! I wasn't wearing leggings under this maxi skirt but I kind of wished I had - one of Brisbane's really cold winter mornings - the temps were down in single digits!

Our plan for the day was to go to the playground but the wind and the freezing temperatures made that a very unattractive option! Instead we just headed out on a couple of errands inside the nearest shopping centre to stay warm and get outside the house for a bit.

ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the day above, this was a much warmer day! No need for the extra leather jacket or scarf, and I wasn't wishing I'd worn leggings under my maxi skirt. Although I was wearing taller boots under it so my legs were pretty cosy!

Just a quiet Sunday, with church in the morning and then Church Online in the afternoon. I really like blue and red together, and I've worn this red skirt with other blue tops in the past.

It's the first time I've tried the red bag and maxi skirt together though, it was a nice bit of matchy-matchy. Since the red micro Avery bag has gold hardware, I wore my navy and gold beaded necklace and navy and gold tassel earrings. I really liked this outfit, so nice and colourful and very comfortable!


Last worn: tassel earrings, beaded necklace, blue marle knit, red maxi skirt, tan boots, Rebecca Minkoff micro avery tote.

Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt can be worn in cooler weather and isn't just a summer piece! I've been enjoying wearing my maxi skirts over winter. Adding a nice soft cosy knit is a great way to winterise a maxi skirt, adding a few more layers like a scarf and leather jacket for really cold days!

Weekday Wear Linkup! Coordinating Scarves and Bags: Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga with Cosy Knits and Pencil Skirts

If you've read my blog a while you'll know I love a bit of matchy-matchyness in my outfits! I've posted recently about matching shoes and bags together, but for something a little different for today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm coordinating my bags and scarves together, with two of my Alexander McQueen skull scarves.

What I wore:

pink skull scarf, cobalt knit and jacquard pencil skirt for office winter style with balenciaga alexander mcqueen | awayfromblue

Balenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta pink with cobalt knit | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome blue outfit jacquard pencil skirt cobalt knit with pink accessories skull scarf Balenciaga day bag

ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
Top: blue Mossman knit jumper
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta

Why I wore it:

When I thrifted this bright blue knit a while back I didn't anticipate I'd wear it with this magenta Balenciaga day bag quite so much! I really love the way the bag pops against the blue, particularly in a monochrome outfit like this with the navy skirt as well as the blue jumper. Black ballet flats were the best choice with the bright top and accessories!

It was a warmer morning so I went without a jacket - the jumper is a thick knit and this cream and pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is quite cosy being modal. It's more of a neon pink than the magenta pink of the Balenciaga bag, so the colours don't match exactly, but they are so complimentary they look great worn together.


Last worn: tassel earringspink skull scarf, blue knit, jacquard pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga magenta day bag.

SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

What a day! I had the dentist after work, so I was planning to get in a little earlier than usual and leave earlier. It was a cold morning so bundled up in my cosy grey polka dot foil knit, fleece lined tights and navy mac coat. With my Balenciaga tempete day bag, I wanted to pick a similarly coloured scarf and went with this baby blue Alexander McQueen skull scarf.  While they are different shades of blue I think they compliment each other nicely! The silver ballet flats matched the hardware on the bag and the foil polka dots on my jumper, but I didn't do much walking!

There was a police incident and traffic quickly came to a standstill. After being on the bus for an hour and not even reached the half way mark on my trip I realised we weren't going to make it into the city in time for my morning meeting (then an hour away) so I called my boss, got permission to work from home and asked the bus driver to drop me off at the next bus stop, which we could see just 100 meters away. 15 minutes later we pulled up to the bus stop! The traffic was that slow! Eventually I made it home, only 10 minutes late for my 9am meeting ... after a terribly flustered meeting without my usual hour of early morning prep before it I had the rest of the day to try catch up on everything, before heading to the dentist. Not the best of days!

Printed Maxi Skirts and Denim Jackets With Amerii Rattan Sling Bag

Enjoying some warmer than usual winter days with my maxi skirts and denim jackets, and my new Amerii straw bag.

Amerii contacted me through YouTube a while ago and asked if I wanted to try one of their bags in exchange for a review - I was thrilled and had fun picking out this piece to try.

What I wore:

denim jacket, plain black tee, red boho printed maxi skirt, straw circle bag winter SAHM style | awayfromblue

Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black | away from blue

NecklaceRoie Designs long freshwater pearl necklace with tassel
TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
Bag: Amerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy day! Church and then a little shopping at Kmart for things for our pantry reorganisation. Now we are all moved into our new house, we are just trying to set up everything how we like it, it's slow but fun progress! As it was slightly warmer when I wore this back in June, I just needed a denim jacket and no scarf.

With the black rattan bag, I thought a black tee and black ankle boots matched nicely and worked well with the colourful blue denim jacket and red printed maxi skirt. This skirt is a summer favourite, but it layers up well for a warmer winter day like this.


Last worn: denim moto jacket, pearl tassel necklace, black scoop neck tee, red printed maxi skirt, black ankle boots. First time I've worn the bag as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
SkirtAT by Atmos&Here Mars striped maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagAmerii medium sling rattan bag in black (c/o)

Why I wore it:

When we had that brief period of summer like weather back in the middle of June, despite it being winter, I took full advantage and the boys and I headed to our favourite playground to enjoy the sunshine. I also got the chance to wear this side-split maxi skirt, which usually I wouldn't be pulling out on a winter day!

The denim jacket wasn't really necessary, I ended up taking it off as we sat in the sunshine - it was 27° Celsius, so about 82 Fahrenheit. So unexpected for winter!

The mustard yellow tee seemed like a colourful choice for the warmer day, and was a fun pop with the white stripes. Again I stuck with the black ankle boots to match the black round rattan bag. I really liked this outfit.

Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:
Maxi skirts are a summer staple and great for mum life, especially if they are loose and flowy or have a side split to take advantage of a summer breeze. It's easy to layer them up for cooler weather too, with ankle boots and denim jackets. You definitely need more heavy duty layers if you're attempting to wear them on a cold winter day though! 😂

Grey Knits And Green Skinny Jeans With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bags

More simple winter mum style: cosy grey knits, with green skinny jeans and two different Rebecca Minkoff Love bags.

What I wore:

ScarfSeed Heritage Paisley print snood
Top: thrifted Spirit grey marle jumper
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Wore this to take the boys to a local indoor play area, as it had been raining overnight and was predicted to rain more so we couldn't head to the park, but they needed to run around a bit. I picked an easy and comfortable outfit, with my green skinny jeans that have become a frequent go-to this winter, my favourite (and only!) snood and my Converse. The grey knit is one I thrifted before our Europe trip and took overseas with me, it worked well with my olive jeans so I wanted to try wearing it with these brighter green ones. I really liked this combination.

I'd been wearing my Rebecca Minkoff love cross body bag that week so decided to keep wearing it with this outfit, I thought the neutral grey went nicely with the knit.


Last worn: grey knit, Paisley print snood, green skinny jeans, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff love bag.

JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

Despite following a similar outfit formula, I didn't like this second outfit as much as the first one. I thought the olive skinny jeans would go nicely with this fun foil polka dot print knit, and I did like the combination, especially when I matched the foil polka dots with the silver glitter shoes for a very sparkly outfit. You know I like a bit of matchy-matchy!

With the silver sparkle and then the pop of colour with the coral Rebecca Minkoff small love bag, I felt that this outfit was enough as it was and I didn't add a scarf to it. It was a warm day, sitting in the sunshine at the playground, and I was glad I hadn't added the scarf as I didn't really need it.

I did feel that this outfit was missing a little something when I looked at the photos afterwards though, and wish I had added a scarf, I think the first outfit looked great because of the printed snood. A nice outfit, just one that feels a bit flat in the pics.


Last worn: foil polka dot knit, olive skinny jeans, silver glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff small Love bag.

Grey Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey knit and jeans is a staple mum outfit for winter, especially paired with comfortable shoes like this! To mix it up a little, you can wear colourful denim instead of the classic blue, and add a printed scarf or brightly coloured bag to make your outfit pop.

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.

30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga Part Time Bag









What I wore:



Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
ScarfAlexander McQueen magenta skull scarf in roses print
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.


Last worn: camel trench, gold tassel earrings, skull scarf, black henley, polka dot pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Balenciaga Part Time bag (above).

Textured Pencil Skirts Under $50:




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.
