Maxi Dresses Layered For Winter With Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull

Taking advantage of some warmer winter days to wear my maxi dresses again with a few extra layers. I love Brisbane's warmer winter days when it's a mild 24 degrees Celsius in the middle of the day, but not so much the cold 11-12 degrees overnight and early morning 😂 Both of these outfits felt a little dressed up for some fun events I'd been looking forward to for a while!

What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Dress: black Jeanswest halterneck maxi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

So excited for this day! I picked my simplest maxi dress, this plain thrifted black one, and we all kinda of matched in our outfits as we had our family photo shoot. We were supposed to have it at the start of the year but then the restrictions hit and it had to be rescheduled. 

Of course this being a halter neck maxi dress it was a little too cold to wear on its own so I added the denim jacket. The blue Louis Vuitton shawl was a bit too warm in the heat of the day but I was thankful for it in the shade and in the colder evening as we had a late afternoon photo session.

Carried my Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag to fit a few extra things in - water bottles and some snacks for the kids to keep their energy levels up. Not that they needed any of that after having a glass of complimentary fruit juice when we arrived 😂 Cooper appreciated the doggy snacks we brought though!

It was so fun to dress up and wear makeup again!

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Knit: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This outfit was a little more dressed down than the one above, not as much makeup for starters!  Still felt formal enough for a kid's birthday party.  It was our first birthday party after restrictions and it was so good seeing the boys playing with all their friends. This white knit from my mum's wardrobe was actually pretty warm and standing in the back yard in the sun watching the kids on the trampoline I was glad it didn't have full length sleeves. Was just perfect again when it cooled off in the afternoon. And I surprisingly managed to keep the white jumper clean all day!

Added a couple extra accessories with the statement earrings and tassel necklace. The Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag was perfect for taking everything for myself and the boys without worrying about carrying a baby bag too.


Oh and if you've been following along, I completed no buy July again this year, so that's now 6 years I've been avoiding fashion spending in July! It can be tricky with all the sales in that month, but honestly this year we aren't going out much and I'm finding I'm uninspired to shop!



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress can work well on a warmer winter day with the addition of cosy layers. A knit jumper, scarf, or denim jacket can keep you warm and comfortable, and can easily be removed if the day heats up.

Kmart Tiered Floral Print Dresses

Even though it's autumn in Brisbane it's good to give these Kmart tiered floral dresses another wear before I start layering up - especially as we had a very warm April, when I wore these. Two very different occasions though, one to stay home and another for my weekly grocery shop!

What I wore:

Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress floral print for easter at home 2020 awayfromblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Easter at home isolation outfit floral tiered Kmart maxi dress
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas

Why I wore it:

I wore this back on Easter Sunday. I'd ordered some eggs for the boys, with guaranteed Easter delivery, but as it hadn't shown up I'd had to make the dash to the shops for something for them to hunt for the day before. I was feeling a bit upset about not having the things I ordered and the limited options at the stores the day before Easter, as well as the sadness of celebrating another isolation birthday on the same day and missing both my family and our church family. So I decided to dress up anyway to boost my mood. This pretty floral maxi dress is one I've had a few years but it hasn't actually been worn on Easter before, seemed like the perfect thing to wear.

It was a strange Easter at home, but we still had an indoor egg hunt for the boys, they got dressed up in their Sunday best too, and we video called with family for Easter and to celebrate the isolation birthday. We even had birthday cake, and thanks to Church Online we had our church service at home too.


Last worn: Kmart floral maxi dress, gold heart necklace, Havaianas.

Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I actually wore this dress outside! Continuing with my "grocery shopping uniform", a simple dress, the only shoes and bag I wear outside now, my Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. All my other bags are stored away in my handbag cupboard waiting for a time when it will be a bit safer to change bags around and bring bags I've worn outside back into the house.

The navy blue of the bag matches the background of the dress really closely, and if I hadn't been restricting myself to just taking one bag out whenever I leave the house I probably would have changed this for something with a little more contrast.

Didn't wear this all for very long though - went out, got groceries and then as soon as I got home put the accessories away and changed out of these clothes. Because despite social distancing rules in place people seem to think it's okay to reach over you and walk up next to you at the supermarket! At least there was a little more stock on the shelves this time.

How You Can Wear It:

A floral dress is so easy to dress up or down - perfect for celebrating at home or navigating the aisle of the grocery store. Floral prints aren't just for spring either, they work well all year round, as I wore these on warmer autumn days.

Blue & Teal Outfits: Floral Dresses and Weekday Wear Link Up

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm wearing two blue floral dresses for the office and accessorising them with blue bags for a simple navy and teal outfit, that looks different each time.

What I wore:

Shein navy floral swing dress in office with gold accessories and Balenciaga 2006 chevre first blue India bag | awayfromblue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India chevre on arm with floral dress | awayfromthebluec

awayfromtheblue Instagram | navy floral swing dress with teal Balenciaga first bag blue India summer office style
Earrings: Prouds gold and silver spiral drop earrings
Necklace: Lovisa mixed texture beaded necklace
DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (c/o)
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Wore this for my last official day in my old team before moving onto a new role! I'm so excited to start the new year off with a new job, even if I am just on the other side of the building from my old team.

Despite the rain it was quite a warm day so this simple navy swing dress was perfect for the office and the commute. I kept the accessories simple with the gold spiral drop earrings, beaded necklace and gold mouse flats. I love a bit of matchy matchy! Thought that this teal-ish turquoise-y Balenciaga first bag would be a nice touch with the navy dress, I really liked this combination and I like that this bag seems a slightly different shade in different lights sometimes! it's hard to tell if it's more turquoise or teal!


Last worn: gold earrings, navy swing dress, beaded necklace, gold mouse flats, Balenciaga blue India first bag.

Other ways to wearnavy swing dress and sneakersgold mouse flats worn 30 ways, Balenciaga blue India first bag and shorts.

Balenciaga Bags Vs Rebecca Minkoff Bags:







What I wore:

JacketJeanswest grey jersey blazer
Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

The same outfit formula as the one above, just a little changed around and an extra layer added. This time it's a teal floral dress and a navy bag. I've worn a different Rebecca Minkoff navy bag with this teal floral midi dress before, I like the colour combo. I thought this Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel went so nicely with the dress, and with the grey blazer it made it a little more formal for the office.

I'd planned to wear this outfit the week before but the wild weather changed my mind. While it was still raining on this day, it wasn't as bad (and I could actually take blog photos on the patio without the rain blowing in). The blazer wasn't needed for warmth as it was still quite humid even with all the rain.


Last worn: grey blazer, Tiffany heart necklace, teal floral midi dress, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan tote.

How You Can Wear It:

A floral dress is a fun and easy outfit for the office. It looks great worn on its own or you can make it a little more formal with a blazer on top too. Picking a handbag in a different shade of blue is a great way to accessorise too.

Tiered Kmart Sundresses And Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Before the wet weather really set in at the start of February, we had some really hot days and I pulled out these lovely Kmart tiered sundresses again. Light, floaty viscose, so perfect for a hot day!

What I wore:

kmart tiered black sundress with white waterfall drape jacket and burgundy avery crossbody bag | awayfromblue

black and white outfit with Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram white waterfall drape jacket cover up spaghetti strap sundress for church black white outfit
Earrings: Prouds gold and silver spiral drop earrings
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
Necklace: engraved interlinked silver circle family name necklace
Dress: Kmart Aztec print tiered little black dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge black and white bangle
BagRebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag in burgundy

Why I wore it:

This white waterfall jacket was definitely not needed for extra warmth! This sundress is the cutest but it has spaghetti straps I wanted to cover up for church. I have a few kimonos but settled on this jacket that hasn't been worn in a while. Last time I wore it I noted how it had been pretty underutilised in my wardrobe and I needed to wear it more. Well it's certainly been more than a month since I wore it last but I think it's been given another pass to stay in my wardrobe a while longer! I did like how it looked with the black printed sundress, even if I took the jacket off as soon as we got home as it was much too hot for it in the afternoon!

With the simple black and white outfit I wanted to add a little more colour - this burgundy Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody bag seemed like a good choice and the silver hardware matched my necklace and bracelet stack well too. I always take the baby bag into church with some entertainment for the kids and all our water bottles, so a small crossbody bag was all I needed.


Last worn: waterfall jacket, silver circle necklace, black printed sundress, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody. First time I've worn the earrings as they were a gift from hubby.

Other ways to wearwaterfall jacket and shorts, black printed sundress in winter, studded sandals and chambray, Rebecca Minkoff Avery crossbody and jeans.

awayfromblue Instagram | kmart Australia blue pink tiered sundress summer heatwave style
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

The day before all the rains arrived it was a much too hot and humid 36͒ C (97͒ F). I didn't want to wear any layers or anything too warm, this printed sundress was perfect. Being a size bigger than the one above, it was really loose and heatwave friendly, perfect for the school run on a very warm day. I'm definitely getting the most from this $2 clearance sale find!

I did try accessorise it a little with this long necklace - the stones aren't real so it's quite light to wear. I picked the Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag as I liked the navy with the blue in the dress, and also because it fit mine and my son's water bottles inside so I didn't need to carry the baby bag around. It was nice to not have to carry multiple bags around, even if we only went to grab groceries and then  chilled at home in the aircon before school pickup!


Last worn: blue and pink Kmart sundress, Happiness boutique necklace, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearblue and pink Kmart sundress and magenta bag, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and pencil skirt.



Tiered Sundresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple sundress is a great outfit for a hot day! It's an easy instant outfit and will keep you cool in the heat. If you're going to be in the aircon or you want to cover up your shoulders you can always add a light jacket like I have in the first outfit.

Maxi Dresses And Balenciaga First Bag

Again with this blue India Balenciaga first bag! I've been enjoying wearing it so much lately! Decided to wear it with two different shades of blue with two pretty printed maxi dresses.

What I wore:

Earrings: Colette Joanne teal and gold multi drop disk earrings
Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
DressJeanswest 'Chantelle' crochet detail blue printed maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs howlite tassel bracelet and lilac beaded bracelet
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

I love the deep turquoisey-teal of this Balenciaga first bag and wanted to wear it with more blue - this navy printed maxi skirt was the perfect pairing. For another touch of colour I added a little bit of purple with the accessories - the beaded bracelets and the marble necklace. The gold and teal earrings kind of matched the bag and the rose gold sandals were the perfect matching shoe choice.

Wore this for a quiet Saturday, with swimming lessons and then lunch at my parents on the coast. My mum got out a bunch of old toys we had as kids, and it was a trip down memory lane and fun seeing my boys playing with them!


Last worn: navy printed maxi dress, marble necklace, rose gold sandals, Balenciaga blue India first bag. First time I've worn the earrings as they were a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearnavy printed maxi dress layered with a tee, rose gold sandals and shorts, Balenciaga blue India first bag and kimono.

Perfect for pregnancynavy printed maxi dress at 39 weeks.

Belt: came with dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs hematite and red beaded bracelet stack
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

My mum bought me this dress from Kmart just before Christmas and I decided to keep it as my Christmas day dress! I was eager to wear it again so I figured wearing it to church would be a good idea. I wasn't too sure about the Balenciaga first bag against the teal of the dress and kept trying the two together the day before. I decided to wear it anyway. I've matched my bags to my shoes, necklaces, scarves and jeans before so why not try matching to my maxi dress! Not sure I would try the combination again but it was fun to try! I added a few more bracelets to my bracelet stack too to match the print in the dress.

The first time I wore this dress I didn't belt it. This time around as it was a wet weekend I decided to try belting it ever so slightly, to keep the hem off the ground and away from any rain. Luckily I managed to get these photos before the rain started. It was nice for us to have some rain around with the drought and all the bushfires lately, it's been very welcome.


Last worn: Kmart teal floral maxi dress, Tiffany necklace, studded sandals, Balenciaga first bag (above).

Other ways to wearKmart teal floral maxi dress for Christmas, studded sandals and pencil skirt, Balenciaga first bag and shorts

Perfect for pregnancystudded sandals in second trimester.


Printed Maxi Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A printed maxi dress is an easy instant outfit. For something a little fun you can add more colour with your accessories. It could be as simple as bracelets that match the colours in the print, or adding a bright pop of colour with a completely different shade of bag like in the first outfit.

Foil Print Tees and Denim Shorts With Bright Rebecca Minkoff Bags: Weekday Wear Link Up!

More casual outfits for this week's Weekday Wear Link up. Back in the summer of 2017/2018 I bought a few foil print tees. I tend not to wear them for everyday as they feel a bit more special than a regular tree, but I realised they hadn't been worn in a while. Going out with family felt like the perfect time to wear them. They pair so nicely with denim!

What I wore:

foil print stripe tee with navy printed kimono boyfriend denim shorts neon pink mini mac movie outfit | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC with silver bracelet stack denim shorts kimono | awayfromtheblue

TeeJeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus enamel coated Marc By Marc Jacobs Katie bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Wore this blue and white outfit to go see Frozen 2 with the kids. They were so excited to see it, but we wanted to wait until we could all go together. Thankfully everyone's days off lined up eventually. It was so strange sitting there in the movie theatre watching the second Frozen movie with my mum, sister and my two kids, as when I saw the first one with my mum and sister I was pregnant with my eldest boy! He loved the songs and danced along in my belly so it's no surprise he still loves the movie now, ha!

I've worn this navy printed kimono with stripes before, it's a great way to print mix especially with the silver foil stripes on this tee. I kept the silver theme with the necklace, bracelet and the silver hardware on the pink mini MAC. Pink is another thing that's frequently worn with this kimono!

The studded gladiator sandals and the distressed denim shorts were simple pieces to wear with the colourful blue and pink outfit.


Last worn: navy printed kimono, circle necklace, silver foil stripe tee, distressed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC.

Other ways to wearnavy printed kimono worn 3 ways, silver foil stripe tee in monochrome outfit, distressed denim shorts and Conversestudded gladiator sandals worn 30 ways, Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC and printed dress.

TeeJeanswest Kaylin star foil grey tee
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Although you can't see it so well in the main photo this cream tee is covered in lots of little foil stars, the perfect sparkly outfit for a night out at Movie World's White Christmas event! Especially when paired with the silver glitter Kmart shoes, and the silver cuff. My sister thought the same - she and I matched with our star print tees and black shorts! It's no mystery why I dress the boys the same when my sister and I are still doing it as adults! 😂

As it was a Christmas event at the theme park I added some red accessories for a festive touch of colour. I wore this little red Rebecca Minkoff mini Avery tote bag last time we went too, it's a great size for my wallet and camera and it zips up securely to keep everything safe. The necklace was a nice bit of matchy matchy.

Once again we had a great time at the event, it was awesome!



Last worn: star print tee, red beaded necklace, black denim shorts, silver sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag.

Other ways to wearstar print tee worn two ways, black denim shorts and scarf, silver sneakers and grey dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and matching jeans.




Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print tee is a fun twist on a classic tee. Just like a plain tee, it works well with denim! You can continue the sparkle with other accessories like I have with the shoes and cuff in the second outfit, or just let the tee be all the sparkle and add some bright colourful accessories like red blue or pink.

Kmart Floral Dresses and Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull MM

Most of my outfits follow a similar formula - bargain clothes and splurge worthy bags! These two are no exception, with the cheap and cheerful floral dresses from Kmart (both under $25) paired with my Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull tote (which costs almost 100 times more than the dresses 😂).
Makes a very simple, if expensive, outfit for a hot summer day!

What I wore:


Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress with waterfall jacket Louis vuitton neverfull | awayfromblue

floral maxi dress with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromtheblue

Jacket: no label white drape jacket
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Found this old white waterfall jacket in my wardrobe when trying to organise my new wardrobe room (post and video coming once I have it setup the way I want!). It's survived a few wardrobe declutters and it's many years old but it's only been worn a handful of times. The last time was back in 2016! It is a nice simple, lightweight cover up that will go with everything, so that's why I keep justifying keeping it despite how little it's worn. I did enjoy wearing it with this maxi dress, it was a good way to cover up the spaghetti straps and keep warm in church. So for now, it's staying in my wardrobe, and if I don't wear it any time over the next month I'll be donating it.

Kept the accessories simple, and since the Louis Vuitton neverfull tote has gold hardware I went with my rose gold accessories - these strappy sandals and the filigree heart necklace. Simple outfit for the morning at church and a quick stop at Bunnings.


Last worn: white waterfall jacket, rose gold heart necklace, floral tiered maxi dress, gold sandals, Louis Vuitton neverfull tote.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Completely outfit repeating here! While it's the first time I've worn the neverfull tote with this dress, I've worn the mustard and gold earrings with it before, and the rose gold sandals. Also wore the same sandals in the first outfit! Wanted a slightly dressy option for our family photo.

For the past few years we have been taking our annual family Santa photo at the RSPCA "Santa Paws" event. It's a great way to get a pic of the whole family, including our dog, and we use the photos for our Christmas cards each year. We were prepared this year, and I wore this for our family photo back in November. Our little one had gotten over his Santa fear a few days before Christmas last year, and we had a tablet lined up with a pre-downloaded video to capture the boys attention. Bag of tricks packed (this neverfull holds so much!) I was feeling confident this year about getting a good photo.

All was good until we actually sat down next to Santa, and the tears began and both the photography staff and Cooper were terrified. Our poor pup, he'd been enjoying the Santa cuddles just moments before! In the end we worked on a comprise and Santa went away and hid so we could get a picture without him. Boys and dogs now calm, Santa snuck up behind us for the final pic and we finally got a good shot. It seemed even more stressful than last year, and I'd thought we were so prepared! I think we may need to look into a Santa-free photo next year! 😂 I did like my outfit at least, even if the day didn't go as smoothly as planned.

Floral Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It: 

A floral dress is a classic option - in a midi or maxi length! With a bold and colourful print, you don't need to accessorise much, and a go-with-everything tote and metallic accessories create a simple outfit.


Monday's weekday wear link up post will be running as normal, but I won't have a post on Wednesday as it's Christmas day. Have a very merry Christmas!
