2 Ways To Wear Kmart Amber Tiered Midi Dress | Weekday Wear Link Up

Another new purchase from Kmart! This dress was a delayed impulse buy. I'd spotted it on the way out of Kmart with my sister after some birthday present shopping. I kept thinking about it so next time I put in a Kmart order with some things for the boys I added this dress too, as well as a marigold top I've already shared. For the start of spring it works so well with denim jackets!

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this scarf with the dress the first time I wore it, the blue heart print works so well with the amber of the dress. It turned into such a warm day and I didn't need both the denim jacket and scarf after school drop off, but since I'd forgotten mozzie repellent for our little walk around our fave trail I decided to keep the jacket on and keep my arms safe from bites! Did end up taking off both the denim jacket and scarf for school pickup though.

As we spent most of the day out on the trail I just used the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack as my bag all day. It's a great bag for holding water bottles and snacks for out on the trail. It popped beautifully with the bright blue against the orange dress too.

Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, despite the squinting from the sun 😂 Wore this for Father's Day as I was so eager to wear this dress again quite quickly! Stuck with the denim jacket topper, although picked a darker blue one this time, and I really liked this combination. As it was a warmer day I went with the tassel necklace instead of a scarf, and as there were no extra long walks required I picked Converse instead of my walking shoes. I loved the way Converse looks with this dress, I need to wear it again with Converse in the future!

Again I went with a blue bag with this, my little sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC the boys got me for Mother's Day. Did consider going matchy-matchy with a turquoise bag to match the tassel necklace, but I really liked this greyish blue against the orange dress.


How You Can Wear It:

A bright tiered midi dress is perfect for spring, especially in orange! It's easily layered with a denim jacket - and blue bags are a great accessory choice!

Two Ways To Wear Marigold Orange Tops With Skinny Jeans

I've been wearing a lot more bright colours lately! Loving yellow as always, but there are a lot of cute orange pieces around for spring too and so I put this post together with two ways I've recently worn marigold orange tops. Both with jeans, but with different colour schemes.

What I wore:

sass and bide playman chevron print skinnies double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | away from theblue

awayfromblue Instagram | double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee printed sass and bide playman skinnies and mini mac

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun outfit! These Sass and Bide chevron print skinny jeans make such a statement on their own, but I thought I'd try the marigold tee with them for something really bold. I did end up adding the denim jacket on top too so it wasn't too much together, and it helped keep me cosy as it was quite a windy day! I really like the double denim with such different coloured denim pieces together, I thought it went well and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and necklace tied in with the blue of the jacket. Blue pairs so nicely with orange!

A comfortable jeans and tee outfit for the school run, spending time scootering around with my son and walking Cooper, and then sports in the evening.





What I wore:

marigold orange dolman kmart top with thrifted green skinny jeans Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold with green skinny jeans and bright blue backpack

TopKmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

A little more of a colourful combination with this recently purchased top! Admittedly when I ordered it online I thought it was more mustard than orange, despite the marigold name for the colour. It's a stunning bright colour though and oh so comfortable - I saw it working well for the rare zoom meetings I have at work where I want to look bright and cheerful but also be comfortable too, the slouchy oversized style and dolman sleeves are just perfect for that.

As it is such a voluminous top I wanted to balance it out with skinny jeans, but also really have fun with the orange colour so I decided to try these thrifted Asos green jeans with it. Such a fun combination!

The daggy sneakers and the practical Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack were because I headed out with the kids for the day, making the most of the nice weather and the pupil free day to explore along our favourite trail again, visit a new one, and just keep the kids out the house for a few hours so hubby could work from home in peace and quiet! I was so glad I had these comfortable shoes, especially on the second trail as my injured knee was really complaining!

May have been a bit overly colourful for hiking around some trails, considering we didn't bump into anyone else but a snake all day, but it was nice to try a new colour combo. And thankfully the snake slithered away quickly!


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. First time I've shared the top on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to weargreen skinny jeans and ombre knit, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack with stripes.



How You Can Wear It:

There are so many different shades of orange around at the moment for spring - it's a really fun colour to wear! You can try it with neutrals like blue denim jackets or black jeans, or go a little bolder and pair it with bright blues and green denim!

Weekday Wear Linkup! Colourful Cardigans, Scarves and Skinny Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Day Bag

Today's Weekday Wear Linkup has some outfits I layered up for the end of winter. Still trying to stay a little colourful with my cardigans and scarves.

What I wore:

mustard cardigan with navy and grey skinny jeans and converse outfit heart print scarf balenciaga bag | away from blue

mustard cardigan with Balenciaga giant hardware Day hobo bag in 2009 tempete | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | mustard cardigan with navy tee heart print scarf grey skinny jeans and Balenciaga tempete day hobo bag

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
Tee: Jeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I love blue and yellow together, this mustard cardigan gets worn with blue a lot but it's the first time I've worn it with this navy tee. I added a little extra blue with the Stella McCartney heart print scarf that was a firm favourite this winter, just like last winter.

The neutral grey skinny jeans were an easy choice with the colourful pieces and the tempete Balenciaga day bag was a great mix of blue and grey to tie it all together. Didn't need such a big bag as it was a quiet day: the school run, a little opshopping and then sports in the evening after school pickup, but it just went with my outfit so well.





What I wore:

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl colourful print scarf in green
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

More muted colours, but still a little bit of mustard and navy! I felt this outfit was very similar to one I've worn before, wearing this dark grey tee with this green printed scarf, green skinny jeans, a cardigan and a blue bag. Slightly different colours this time around with the olive jeans and navy cardigan though.

While I did like the colours in this outfit, it was much too warm! The day was warmer than expected and while I did need the scarf and cardigan on our way home from our evening appointment it was a bit too warm for most of the day. Ended up taking the scarf off while working from home after the school run.

Had to wear these daggy shoes instead of my Converse, I've been trying out a few local trails with the kids and found a nice one but it was a bit uneven which hurt my knee, so I needed these comfortable shoes to support my knee as it was hurting a little from the trail a few days before.



How You Can Wear It:

Winter layers can be colourful! Stick with a neutral like navy and then add other brighter colours like yellow or green with a cardigan or scarf.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Grey Tees and Plain Maxi Skirts With Mini MAC Bag

Enjoying the spring like weather right at the end of winter last month I wore some simple maxi skirt and tee outfits with a couple of my grey tees and my blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

awayfromblue ochre amber maxi skirt with grey tee and blue mini mac bag spring style

awayfromtheblue rebecca minkoff sky grey blue mini mac bag with ochre amber maxi skirt



Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a beautifully sunny public holiday. Since the Ekka (our Queensland state show) was cancelled they moved the Wednesday public holiday to Friday instead to give everyone a long weekend. The weather was so nice we headed out with the kids around our favourite trail. I wasn't expecting it to be quite so busy though! It's usually so quiet we can go the entire time without seeing more than 2 people, but I guess with the public holiday everyone wanted to enjoy the spot. Thankfully the outdoors is a great place to keep our distance, and the kids showed their Dad some of their "hidden" paths off the trail we have taken before where we didn't see anyone for a while.

Since it was such a warm day I just wore a simple outfit, I liked the last time I wore a grey tee with this ochre maxi skirt, and this darker grey tee was even better than the last one I tried. Since hubby was there to carry the baby bag I just wore my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC for keeping my essentials with me - I often use the camera on my phone to take pics as we walk around here. I thought the blue was nice with the ochre skirt.






What I wore:

awayfromblue black maxi skirt grey tee converse with pink striped scarf and blue mini mac bag

awayfromtheblue black maxi skirt with blue rebecca minkoff mini mac bag



Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Tee: Jeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This day was even warmer than the one above, although it was pretty windy too! I decided to add this fun pink striped scarf to my outfit, as the grey tee and the black maxi skirt were a little plain together. Even though the grey tee has a contrasting pink panel on the back it looked a little monochrome from the front. I thought the scarf complimented the pink on the tee nicely, even if it did keep blowing around a bit when I tried to get photos!

Again I wore my little blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, it goes well with pink and grey.

This was a nice outfit for a busy day with the school run, working from home and an appointment for my son in the afternoon.


How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey tee and maxi skirt outfit is a great option to keep you cool on a warm day. You can keep it monochromatic like I have in the second outfit and add some colour with accessories, or let the skirt be the pop of colour like I have in the first outfit with the ochre skirt.

Skinny Jeans, Printed Tanks And Cardigans

Making the most of the warmer winter weather just before spring arrived, I got some of my printed tanks out when all I needed to add was a light cardigan. Wore some colourful jeans with them too.

What I wore:

green skinny jeans, grey cardigan and yellow and navy aztec print tank with silver mini mac bag and accessories | awayfromblue

green skinny jeans with Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC | away from the blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Target silver Alisha trinity pendant necklace
TankAtmos&Here 'Florida' tank in Aztec print
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wanted to wear light and colourful layers as it was such a warm day, so this 3/4 sleeve cardigan and a printed tank were perfect. Surprisingly it's the first time I've worn this mustard tank with the green skinny jeans! I really like wearing yellow with these green jeans so I was surprised to look back on the blog and see I hadn't paired the two together before.

I was a little disappointed to see I hadn't worn this tank in over a year and a half too - it really needs to be worn more often, it's a comfortable swing style and goes with so much - last time I wore it with purple.

With the printed tank and bright green jeans I kept the accessories simple with the matching silver mini MAC bag and silver circle necklace. Just wish it had been a little warmer at the end of the day! This outfit was perfect for the school run in the morning and afternoon but I had to layer up with a thicker coat for my son's sports in the evening when it got really cold.





What I wore:

purple cardigan striped tank skull print scarf and magenta skinny jeans outfit with mini mac bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag with magenta skinny jeans  | away from the blue



Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfAlexander McQueen modal skull scarf in white/pink
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue (and Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag)

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun day! Spent the day with my sister taking her around our fave trail, enjoying the sunshine and the trees sheltering us from the worst of the wind. It was so nice to get out and treat ourselves to a takeaway lunch afterwards.

Added this light scarf to try combat the wind a little. This neon pink Alexander McQueen skull scarf is frequently worn with stripes, I really like the combination and despite it being a different shade of pink with the magenta skinny jeans I think they worked well together. Surprisingly I haven't worn this scarf at all this winter! I have been living in loungewear since we go out so little though, hubby and I share the school runs so I don't go out every day.

Keeping up with all the colour I added my purple cardigan and blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. I did say I'd be wearing this cardigan and these jeans together again last time I wore them - the purple is such a nice shade with the magenta!

As you can see I swapped to my Rebecca Minkoff Julian bag to carry all the water bottles and some snacks on our little hike, but I wore the mini MAC bag for the school run and a quick Kmart shop in the afternoon.


Last worn: purple cardigan, pink and cream skull scarf, black and white stripe tank, magenta skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, Rebecca Minkoff Julian.



How You Can Wear It:

A printed tank is a great combination with a pair of colourful jeans. You can add a light cardigan or scarf if it's a little cooler. Either stick with neutrals to balance out a colourful tank and jeans combo like I have in the first outfit with the grey cardigan, or layer up even more colour like I have in the second outfit with the pink scarf and purple cardigan.

Yellow and Turquoise With Neutral Skinny Jeans Outfits

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two outfits with similar colour schemes of mustard yellow and turquoise, but two very different resulting outfits. One I needed to layer a little more than the other, as winter draws to an end here in Queensland and we get a mix of warmer and cooler days before spring official starts in September.

What I wore:

turquoise and mustard yellow tee skinny jeans and floral duster kimono outfit | away from the blue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India turquoise moto bag | away from blue





Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India
 

Why I wore it:

With the suddenly warmer weather I wanted to get one of my kimonos out again! This duster one is great as it has longer sleeves that I appreciated doing the school drop off in the morning when it was a bit cooler. It was really warm in the afternoon though and I was glad it's not too thick a fabric!

I've worn it with yellow before, but it's the first time I've paired this mustard tee with it and I really liked the combination. The turquoise Balenciaga first bag is something I've accessorised this kimono with before though, such a fun way to wear even more colour to the already colourful print.

These Nobody Denim skinny jeans are a firm favourite as they go with everything and with the comfortable stretch in them they were perfect for a day of working from home with the school run and an afternoon specialists appointment.






What I wore:

mustard cardigan with monochrome grey skinny jeans and tee outfit, converse, skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

mustard cardigan with turquoise Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram mustard cardigan and teal and turquoise skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag

ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

This was a busy day, with an early appointment for my youngest right after school drop off. I had to drive into the city for it and although I know some work places are back it was still busier than I expected on the drive in.

As it was a bit of a chilly morning I took advantage of needing to layer by adding some colourful pieces to an otherwise monochrome outfit. It's the first time I've worn this grey tee and the grey skinny jeans together but they were a great outfit base for the teal and turquoise Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the mustard cardigan. I liked how the turquoise skulls matched the Balenciaga first bag too.


Last wornmustard cardigan, teal skull scarf, grey v neck tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Balenciaga turquoise first bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and blue look great together, and turquoise and mustard are a nice example of that. With a bold colour combo you can keep the rest of your outfit neutral like I did in the second outfit with the monochrome grey, or add even more colour with a bright printed piece like the kimono in the first outfit.

Blue Knits, Black Jeans, Magenta Edie Bag, and Face Masks

Two very similar outfits with blue knits, black skinny jeans and my magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag. Oh and some face masks too!

Queensland had a bit of a shock in July when some people lied about where they had been when they returned to the state (to avoid mandatory quarantine) and brought the virus with them from an outbreak in another state. It resulted in our first community cases in months. Previously the cases in Queensland had been contained to people returning to the state and doing their mandatory quarantine and not interacting with the public.

Since our suburb was then made a "restricted area" due to the higher than usual chance of catching the virus, one of our big supermarket brands requested that people wear a face mask in store. Not requiring, just requesting. As I already bought a few masks I decided I'd wear them when I shopped. I usually do all my grocery shopping online now, but with the cases rising in Victoria and the fear of more cases locally, not everything has been in stock and so I've had to go to the supermarket more than I'd like.

I took some pics while wearing the masks as although it may be controversial in some places I think there is no harm in putting on an extra piece of pretty fabric for a quick 15 minute shop to pick up essentials, if it makes the staff and other shoppers feel better. It makes me feel like I'm doing my bit too, although hopefully cases continue to stay low here and I won't be needing to wear masks outside the grocery store!

What I wore:

blue mossman knit with black nobody denim skinny jeans converse Rebecca Minkoff edie magenta bag purple scarf | awayfromblue

ribbed blue knit jumper with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | blue knit, black skinny jeans, purple scarf magenta crossbody bag and matching face mask

Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf
Sweater: thrifted blue Mossman knit jumper
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This was a bit of a mixed day! I'd got my online grocery order earlier in the week but it didn't have everything I needed. One of the things missing was a snack I'd planned to take as a "bring a plate" to socially distant drinks later that evening, so I had to go out to the grocery store that morning when I realised I otherwise had nothing to bring! My baking skills aren't quite good enough to inflict them on non family members yet!

Didn't want to get dressed up just for the evening so wore the same thing all day - this great bright blue cropped knit that works so well with these high waisted Nobody Denim skinny jeans. It's not so good with low waisted jeans! Added a little extra interest with the printed Fashion Scarf Girl scarf and my pink and gold statement earrings. The earrings made my first mask wearing a littler trickier than expected but I got there in the end.

I'd wanted to wear the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag as it is such a fun pop with the blue knit, and I was pleased when I realised that this mask almost matched it!





What I wore:

sass and bide playman printed skinny jeans with cobalt marle knit magenta edie crossbody bag | awayfromblue

cobalt marle knit with Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | away from the blue


Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
Top: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

A very similar outfit to the one above with the blue knit and black jean combo, although with a warmer morning I didn't need a scarf as I wore this a week later. I wore this pretty gold and marble pendant necklace instead of a scarf, the pinks and purples went nicely with the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag even though the necklace is gold and the hardware on the bag is silver.

As I wasn't wearing a scarf I thought I'd wear these printed skinny jeans to add an extra touch of interest - they are really fun but sometimes can be tricky to wear if I try add other prints with them. They work better, like here, as the statement print in the outfit. I did wish I'd worn a scarf in the afternoon when the wild weather blew in, but it was a much warmer morning than expected.

Stopped by my favourite photo taking spot after the school drop off before yet another Woolies trip, so I wore this pretty floral mask. Thankfully even though things have been out of stock when I've made online orders I've been able to get the things I needed in stores when I visit.


How You Can Wear It:

Black and blue look great together! Try a blue knit with black skinny jeans. For an extra pop of colour, try pink accessories too - they go so well with blue and stand out against black jeans.
