Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed Sheath Dresses and Colourful Cardigans

For this weeks Weekday Wear link up I'm wearing my favourite printed sheath dresses with some cosy cardigans to make some colourful corporate style outfits.

What I wore:

Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressFrench Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress in white/geranium rose
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

It was such a warm day when I wore this - a little teaser of the upcoming summer heat before the Ekka winds set in the next day and cooled things in Brisbane right down back to winter temps! I went out during my lunch break at work to run a few errands and actually regretted the cardigan! My plan had been to belt it in place but I knew I'd probably have to take it off at some point with the summer temps, so left it unbelted so I could do so.

You've seen me wear yellow with this dress before - often in smaller doses like a yellow necklace or scarf. I thought I'd be a bit bolder this time and pair the orange printed sheath dress with the mustard yellow cardigan. I really liked this outfit, perfect for a busy day at work and a little time outside in the sunshine at lunch time. The ankle boots kept my bare legs cosy on the cooler morning, it quickly warmed up anyway.

With the summery citrus toned outfit, the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag seemed like the perfect choice!

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This outfit was worn on a more winter like day, so followed the same outfit formula as the first, but with a few more layers. I really like blue and purple together so I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this purple cardigan with the blue paisley print sheath dress before! It's such a great combination.

I needed to be just a little bit warmer though, so added my cosy fleece-lined tights, as well as my purple Marc Jacobs blanket scarf. This scarf is such a stunning piece, and even though it has a print it's subtle enough that it looks nice worn with the paisley dress. It's not an exact match to the cardigan, but I did like the two different purple shades together. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull adds more print to the outfit, but I see this bag as a neutral and will wear it with any print!

With all the colour and print, a classic black pair of ballet flats seemed like the best shoe option. Super comfortable too!

How You Can Wear It:

A fun and colourful printed sheath dress is a great option for your work wardrobe. You can play it safe and stick with neutral layers to accompany the bold print and let the dress make a statement on it's own, or you can get even more colourful by adding bright layers like scarves and cardigans that will compliment the colours in the print of your dress.

Chambray Maxi Skirt and Graphic Tees Worn 2 Ways

This chambray maxi skirt has been worn a lot recently - it was so close to 30 wears and I was determined to reach that number of wears before winter was over. Much like traditional denim jeans, a chambray maxi skirt also works well with graphic tees!

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton MM neverfull tote bag damier azur | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | seaworld double denim chambray maxi skirt and graphic tee outfit with louis vuitton neverfull
Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
TeeUniqlo Mickey Mouse 'Mickey Stands' short sleeve graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun day out at Seaworld on the Gold Coast with the boys. It's definitely our favourite theme park, having lots of animals for them to see and touch, animal shows, and lots of rides they can go on. I wasn't sure if it would be windy by the sea so I wore the denim jacket, but I took it off during the day as it was just too hot - a perfect day for walking around a theme park! (Yes, jackets aren't always needed in the middle of the day in Brisbane, even in winter!)

When thinking what to wear I figured I'd give my Mickey Mouse tee another wear! Last worn at Disneyland Paris, it's perfect theme park wear. I didn't feel too silly wearing it to a non-Disney park. It was a last minute purchase for our Disney trip and I was glad I bought it for that, but want to get more wear from it outside of Disney!

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a good carry all for a day out too, and although we did decide to take the stroller with us it wasn't really used much.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt

Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag in red with cobalt jacket and chambray skirt | away from the blue

JacketWittner 'Santa Fe' cobalt blue leather jacket
Tee: Primark Edinburgh white graphic tee
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This is another graphic tee I wore on our Europe trip! This one I bought in Edinburgh though, as a souvenir from our time there. I actually wore it on the trip home, and thankfully for a white tee, after 26 hours in the air and 3 flights with 2 toddlers it all washed out okay 😂

With the blue graphic on the white tee, I thought I'd go matchy-matchy and wear my cobalt jacket with the chambray maxi skirt. While the cobalt leather jacket is a great match for the print on the tee, the chambray maxi skirt is a different shade of blue but still compliments it nicely. It was the perfect layer on a cold winter day too. Unlike the day above, I needed my jacket on all day!

The red bag was a fun touch of colour with all of the blue, and the tan ankle boots that go with everything also helped keep me cosy on a cooler winter day. We spent the day with my mum, having some fun before I had to face the dentist in the afternoon.

Chambray Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A chambray maxi skirt is just as easy to wear as any other denim option like jeans or shorts. A classic denim and tee option always works, and a graphic tee is a fun choice with a chambray maxi skirt. As you can see in the second outfit too it's easily layered up for cooler weather.

Maxi Dresses And Kimonos With Ankle Boots And Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

I love layering my maxi dresses up a little for cooler weather. On Brisbane's mild autumn days, a little extra layer is all you need for the cooler mornings and evenings. A kimono is perfect!

What I wore:

Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress with white crochet trim kimono acne pistol ankle boots autumn dinner | awayfromblue

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

awayfromtheblue Instagram | summer floral maxi dress in autumn with kimono and ankle boots LV neverfull tote
JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono C/O
Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Picked this maxi dress to wear for a family birthday dinner, but with the much cooler evening I knew I'd need an extra layer. I've worn my denim jacket with this maxi dress often, so I thought I'd try something a little different and picked this pretty crochet trim kimono instead. Being white I didn't have to worry about it clashing with the print at all.

I added the Acne pistol ankle boots for a little extra warmth. I tend to stay away from heels now with the boys but I used to wear these all the time pre-babies, they are quite comfortable and I figured dinner was a good way to reintroduce them to my wardrobe - not too much walking at all, haha!

The Louis Vuitton neverfull is a much bigger bag than I needed for dinner but it worked so well with the white kimono I had to give it a wear :)

Necklace: M initial silver pendant necklace
DressJeanswest 'Sierra' embellished black maxi dress (on sale!)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the first outfit so much, I decided to wear something similar to church. I stuck with the Louis Vuitton neverfull tote as it was already filled from the day before and I usually carry a couple of books for the boys to read quietly during the service anyway. Perfect tote for that!

I picked black ankle boots but they kind of blend into the black maxi dress a little! The necklace pick I was happier with - I am sometimes a little unsure what to pair with this dress as it has the embellished neckline, but the sparkly M initial necklace looked great.

It's not the first time I've worn this maxi dress with a kimono, but it is the first time I've paired this floral one with it. I liked the navy with the black, and the cosy kimono kept my shoulders warm in church.

Maxi Dresses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A maxi dress is not just a summer piece - it works well into autumn too with a few more layers! Ankle boots are an obvious choice to keep your feet cosy, and a light kimono can protect against some of the early morning or evening autumn chill in the air.

Denim Shorts, Slouchy Tees, Printed Scarves and Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

When I bought these tees from Jeanswest in the sale a few months ago, I didn't expect them to become as much of a staple as they have! I already have a few slouchy tees in my wardrobe, something just makes me keep picking out these tees. They are loose and light, perfect for a hot day when paired with denim shorts. To keep my outfits interesting, I added in a print with my lighter scarves. Both these blue scarves are made from viscose.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This outfit was a hastily pulled together last minute one, but it doesn't look it! I love how a scarf makes your outfit feel more pulled-together. I was in a bit of a rush that morning to get the boys ready and out the door to go to our local ABA group catch up. The blue printed scarf wasn't a necessary addition - I certainly didn't need it to stay warm! - but it was a great completer piece for an otherwise basic shorts and tee outfit. I really liked the red and blue together too.

These studded Rebecca Minkoff sandals are becoming a frequent go-to when I want to wear my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote - they just go perfectly together and with every outfit!

We had a busy morning with some errands to run after our ABA meeting so I picked my neverfull tote to carry everything we needed around the shopping centre and I could leave the bulky and heavy baby bag in the car!

Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A slightly less hectic start to the morning with this outfit! It was another hot day, but there was a bit of a breeze so this time around the scarf was added for a little extra warmth! I seem to wear this navy mixed print scarf with a lot of olive, this dark olive tee was a natural pairing with it when trying to figure out what to wear that morning.

While these glitter shoes were only $8 at Kmart, I've found them to be really comfortable shoes, so I figured I'd switch things up a little from my Converse and take them out on a stroll through the mangroves. I can't find a definitive answer on the length of the walk online, but the walk is part boardwalk part path through a little bit of bush. Other Bayside locals will know where I mean. It took us nearly 2 hours, lots of stopping to pat dogs walking along, or talk to fishermen, or watch trains once we climbed to the top of the hill. The breeze was perfect for stopping us from overheating, and my scarf came in handy when the wind got too much as we got further out into the bay.

We will need to take Cooper next time - we had to stop at the grocery store afterwards so he had to stay home this time.

Again I carried my big neverfull tote for everyone's water bottles, I didn't feel like carrying the heavy baby bag all the way around the walk!

Slouchy Tees Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A plain slouchy tee is a wardrobe basic and a mum essential. You can't beat a shorts and tee outfit or summer. If you need to change up the outfit a little or you just want to add some extra interest, try a printed scarf! Scarves draped loosely around your neck and made from a light fabric like the viscose these ones are made of will introduce a fun print without overheating you. You can wrap them a little tighter around when it gets cooler in the mornings or evenings, or when you're caught in the breeze being out on the water.

Printed Maxi Dresses and Louis Vuitton Neverfull Damier Azur Tote

I love a maxi dress. They are perfect for staying covered up but cool in the summer heat. I wore both these printed maxi dresses for two different days, but kept the accessories identical to show you that you don't need to add much to a maxi dress - even with the same accessories these are such different outfits due to the different prints.  Take a maxi dress, add a pretty necklace, big tote bag, studded sandals and you have an easy summer outfit - no matter the print or style of your maxi dress!

Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this to go take our annual family Santa photo. We have done it at a few different places over the years, but this year we did the same as last year and headed to the local RSPCA shelter to get the photo. I'd thought about what everyone was wearing, planned it all out so we subtly coordinated. The boys were in blue and green shirts and I picked this tropical print maxi dress because of the blue and green in the print.

Turns out that all that time I spent curling my hair in the morning and thinking about the perfect outfits didn't really matter as one of my sons decided he was not in the mood for photos and that the camera and Santa were the scariest things in the world. Your time slot is really short, just 5 minutes, so I felt horrible as I was going through my bag for things for the staff to use to distract him and make him look over at the camera. At the time of writing this I haven't got the final photo back yet, but I'm not expecting it to be a good one. Will certainly be a funny one to look back on in later years though.

I really did like this outfit - the bag and dress and the studded sandals and maxi dress are all frequently worn together. I just wished the morning was a little less stressful! 😂

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula, although a much more productive day! I picked this jersey maxi dress to wear as it seemed like a nice option for the crazy heat and humidity while still being modest enough for an appointment I had with my son. I had the day off for it, and got to spend some rare one on one time with him before the late morning appointment. I think the biggest struggle of having two kids is finding enough time one on one with each of them equally.

After the appointment I dropped him off late at daycare, and headed to the shops to finish grabbing a few more Christmas gifts. Of course I stopped at Kmart, to discover that my local store has the super clearance markdowns on Wednesdays, when I'm usually working! I stocked up and bought a bunch of clothes for the boys, and a $2 dress for me! 18 items for $37 was a pretty good deal!

This maxi dress is a firm favourite, being my favourite colour, and was perfect for the day. I even filmed a few videos for YouTube too and really made the most of my day off!

Blue Wrap Tops And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Sometimes I'll look through my wardrobe for something I want to wear and come across something I haven't worn in a while. These wrap tops haven't been worn recently and were definitely overdue a wear, so I set them aside waiting for an opportunity to wear them. I decided they would look great with my colourful jeans.

The resulting outfit formulas below are exactly the same, with a wrap top, cosy scarf, skinny jeans and Louis Vuitton neverfull bag. But with the different colour schemes I think they look completely different.

What I wore:

awayfromtheblue instagram | blue and green skinny jeans wrap top neverfull and tree print scarf outfit

TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

An early start and a busy morning meant I wanted a simple and fuss free outfit. I always enjoy this wrap top when I wear it as it's so cosy and soft. The only downside to it being chilly in the morning and needing a scarf is that the scarf kind of covers up the wrap detail of the top, ha! You can see it better the last time I wore it here.

When I bought these green jeans I thought they were something to challenge me and make me try different things, as I usually find green tricky to wear. But I've been finding these jeans work with so much! I've been wearing them so frequently lately. I love blue and green together so expect to see me wearing them that way a lot more often! Sticking with simple block colour pieces makes an outfit come together really quickly. It made it a simple choice when picking a scarf to wear too, as I didn't have to worry about the family tree print clashing with the clothing I was wearing. I think the navy tree part of the print matches the shade of blue in the wrap top quite nicely too!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote as I needed a big bag to cart everything around in as hubby and I had a busy day full of appointments and errands.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

While blue and green is a fairly new colour combination for me, I've always loved red and blue together. I was quite surprised to see that I've never worn this navy wrap top and these red jeans together before! They seem like such an obvious pairing.

The scarf was a last minute addition to my outfit, as the day was off to a cooler than expected start. On this morning there was a dust storm in Brisbane so everything was just a little hazy and the early sunlight was very golden! Last time I wore this poppy print scarf it was with navy and I really liked the combination, so I was happy to wear it with the same colour again. Again, the scarf does cover up the wrap design of the top a bit though!

We had a busy morning with a dentist appointment for the eldest followed by swim lessons. This was an easy and comfortable outfit for all of that. The big Louis Vuitton wasn't really needed as I wasn't carrying all that much, I just thought it went nicely with the rest of my outfit.

Blue Wrap Tops Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A plain blue wrap top is a really easy piece to wear - you can wear it with prints, or simply with jeans. A colourful pair of skinny jeans is a bold way to colourblock your outfit, and a fun way to wear a colour combination that you already love, or want to try out!

Red Tees, Skinny Jeans, Cardigans and Louis Vuitton Bags

At the end of winter, while the days were warming up in Brisbane, the mornings were still pretty cold. It means layering up, so by the time it reaches 25 / 28 degrees (82 F) in the afternoon, you've shed all of your layers.

Despite wearing a similar outfit formula on both of these days, I had very different experiences with each!

What I wore:

red tee with skinny jeans converse grey maxi cardigan louis vuitton speedy bag | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere with heatstamp | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram grey cardigan skinny jeans leopard print scarf and red tee outfit

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a busy but fun filled day. I had the day off from work to volunteer at the Ekka (Brisbane's royal state show, kinda like the state fairs in the US). I dropped the boys off at daycare, ran a quick errand and started filming some videos before it was time to leave. Just as I was in the middle of filming I got a call from daycare that one of the boys had a fever. I frantically called around, found someone to take care of him, rushed to daycare to pick him up and then dropping him off in safe hands I headed out to the Ekka.

Got to the Ekka with plenty of time to stroll around taking in the sights, get some showbags and then get to work. My volunteer shift finished slightly early so I quickly picked up my bags and headed home to my boys, after quickly texting to make sure all was still okay. By the time I got home he really wasn't in a good state. I rushed him to the doctors (thank goodness for the 24/7 primary care centre nearby!) where the doctor scolded us for bringing him there instead of calling an ambulance and ended up calling the ambulance for us. Ending the night in Lady Cilento hospital was not how I had planned the day to go, but at least he's feeling better now.

Outfit wise at least I was comfortable! I picked the Converse as I knew I'd be in the kitchen volunteering for most of the day, and the scarf and cardigan were good layers to take off and on as it got too hot, and easily fit inside my Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above, but a much more relaxed day! I wore this a few days after the incident above, I had scheduled the day off in advance to try give myself some downtime. Thankfully the little one was feeling much better so I didn't feel too guilty leaving him to have some me-time. I spent some time Christmas present shopping, picking up things I'd noticed the boys might like on a previous shopping trip. Yes it's early, but you need to take advantage of any kid-free moments you can get to shop!

As it was supposed to warm up to such a hot day, but I had an early start, I dressed in layers. I thought this poppy print scarf worked nicely with the red tee, but I needed a little something to cover my arms to so went with this navy waterfall cardigan. The navy cardigan also perfectly matched the statement earrings! By the time afternoon arrived and it was 20 degrees warmer than when I first ventured out, the scarf and cardigan had been ditched. Again, it was nice that they could both fit inside my bag, the Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull this time.

After a busy morning, I had a leisurely lunch and treated myself to a pedicure in anticipation of the warmer weather sticking around. It was nice to enjoy the sunshine and warmth for a bit! I even managed to film a complete video too, after the less than perfect attempt a few days before.

How You Can Wear It:

A red tee is a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe! It's a fun pop of colour against neutral layers like in the first outfit, or works well with other colours like navy as in the second outfit. When in doubt, pair a red tee with neutral skinny jeans.
