Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed Tanks, Pencil Skirts and Blazers With Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

Simple corporate style for today's Weekday Wear Linkup. Making my simple printed tank and pencil skirt outfits a little more formal by adding a blazer. A great way to feel a little more dressed up in an office, just add a blazer!

What I wore:

ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Repeating a lot of faves in this outfit! The black jersey blazer and pencil skirt together make the outfit seem a little more formal and suit-like (but much more comfortable, being jersey!). The leaf print tank is one of those pieces I can wear for work and for days with the kids, it's a great "wear anywhere" piece. I've worn it with the blue necklace before but for something a little different this time I wrapped the necklace around twice instead of leaving it long.

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere was a good choice for the predicted wet weather and it's the perfect size for taking my notebook across the city for a meeting in another building. The gold mouse flats were a fun touch with the outfit - metallic gold goes with everything and they are always a talking point when meeting new people.

Why I wore it:

Trying the suit-like look again with a grey jersey blazer and pencil skirt together. The casual fabric stops it from looking too formal for my business casual office. This printed tank is a fun one too and is was just $1 at the opshop, so with this fifth wear I'm really getting great value for money from it! With all the bright colours and mixed prints in the tank I kept the shoes a simple silver to tie in with the grey blazer and skirt, as well as the silver necklace.

The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere was an easy choice again for another meeting across the city.

Weekday Wear Link Up: Pink Tees and Blue Printed Maxi Skirts with Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sharing two similar casual outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, that follow the same basic outfit formula but look very different. I like pink and blue together, so on some stay at home mum days I paired two different pink tees with printed blue maxi skirts and my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

I share a lot of workwear looks for the linkup, but I only work part time so aside from the two days I'm in the office during the week I'm pretty casually dressed!

What I wore:

pink tee and navy stripe maxi skirt outfit SAHM summer style with louis vuitton neverfull MM damier azur | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull with striped maxi skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | summer SAHM style navy stripe maxi skirt raspberry v neck tee casual outfit with louis vuitton neverfull MM
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressCotton On deep v tee in washed dessert rose
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Decided to get pics of this lovely outfit while we were out by the bayside - unfortunately the tide was out so it's not as pretty as I thought it would turn out, haha! I had one on one time with my son and while we did have to get groceries on the way back home, we spent the morning playing by the sea and having a special morning tea just the two of us. By the time the tide had rolled in, my outfit was covered in cake, apple juice and sand so I wasn't going to try repeat the photos! 😂

This raspberry pink tee works so well with the navy stripe maxi skirt - I feel I haven't given this skirt much attention lately, it's a great basic piece and pairs so well with many colours. This raspberry tee was a Christmas gift from my mum and works well with all of the blue I have in my wardrobe! Matched the navy stripes with the navy and gold necklace and the navy and pink Havaianas. I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

The Louis Vuitton neverfull was perfect as I didn't take the baby bag. I carried the wipes, hand sanitiser and both our water bottles in it to save having to bring the baby bag along too.

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Same outfit formula as the one above - pink tee, printed blue maxi skirt, but a lot brighter with the hot pink frill sleeve tee and the bright blue floral maxi skirt. I really liked this outfit - it was a bit of a bold pairing but it made me smile all day! I added the purple crescent necklace for a little extra colour but I'll be honest the pink tee is so bold you barely notice it!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull as I had a busy day ahead, including taking advantage of some rare kid-free time in the afternoon to finally go to the optician and discover that I did need new glasses (I use glasses for working at the computer). Turned into a very expensive day!

Blue Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A blue printed maxi skirt looks great worn with a simple basic tee. You don't have to stick to neutrals though! You can pick a soft pink, or even a bold bright pink, for something a little different that's still just as comfortable. Pink and blue are a great combination in any shades!

Blue Kimonos With Navy Tops and Shorts

Keeping it simple for the summer heat with shorts and kimonos! I love my kimonos over summer, I'm sharing an old favourite that's on frequent repeat as well as a new one I picked up in the January sales!

What I wore:

navy floral cocoon kimono with marle tee and pink cuffed shorts balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

floral kimono and pink shorts with Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | floral cocoon kimono with pink shorts and balenciaga first bag
JacketCotton On 'Gemma' cocoon kimono in Laos blossom navy print
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Shorts: thrifted pastel pink cotton shorts
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

Surprisingly, despite having both this kimono and the navy tee for a few years, I've never worn them together! I think the slightly different shade of navy from the marle tee works so nicely with the deeper navy on the floral kimono. The blush pink shorts are something that have been worn with this kimono a few times in the past, even though they don't match the pink in the print exactly I feel they compliment it nicely. And the rose gold and blush necklace matches them perfectly to tie it all together.

The turquoise Balenciaga first bag kind of matches the pale blue in the floral print, which was a happy coincidence as intended the bag to be another pop of colour for the outfit. It makes me happy when everything matches nicely!

This was a quick outfit to pull together for a busy day. We dropped off more stuff at the opshop, and then of course I bought a few more things when we went in to "just have a look", ha! Still the 2 pieces of clothing and 2 books we bought were a lot less than the 4 boxes and a bag full of clothes and other items that we had donated! I do tend to delay donating things until I have a car boot full as I always find something to buy every time I go. Then we had a lot of errands to run, thankfully most of them could be done in the comfort of the air-conditioned shopping centre as it was a very humid day!


Last worn: floral cocoon kimono, blush and rose gold necklace, navy marle tee, blush cotton shorts, Havaianas, Balenciaga first bag.

Other ways to wearfloral cocoon kimono and maxi dress, navy marle tee over a dress, blush cotton shorts and denim jacket, Balenciaga first bag and olive shorts.

Necklace: Colette marble and gold pendant drop long necklace
Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoes: New Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I picked this navy tank to wear as I'm getting close to 30 wears with it and so I'm trying to reach for it more often to hit that number this year! I also liked the way it went with this recently purchased tie dye kimono. Especially when worn with the black shorts, it echos the colours in the tie dye print nicely.

Added the purple and gold necklace for a little touch of colour, and the Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag as I needed something waterproof for our day out at Sea World on the Gold Coast. We had quite a lot of rain that weekend, which put out a few fires thankfully, and it was predicted to rain more. Luckily it didn't start raining until we were in the car going home.

The shoes are actually super old ones I purchased out of necessity when I was in an accident and injured my knee years ago, before kids. I've kept them despite many wardrobe clear outs even though they are rarely worn (only on longer walks with the dogs) as they are nice to have "just in case". I've always had a bit of a weak knee with repeated knocks, accidents and bumps to it causing an old injury to be aggravated. It's good to have these for whenever my injury plays up.

I'm not a fan of the dad sneaker trend but with a day of walking around a theme park ahead of me and still being in a lot of knee pain after injuring myself again after Christmas, I needed a shoe that would support my knee as much as possible. Even if they don't go with my outfit, I always keep things real here on the blog and share what I actually wear. Plus it's the bags you come to see, not my boring shoe collection 😂





Last worn: navy breastfeeding tank, marble necklaceblack denim shorts, speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the tie dye kimono as it's a recent purchase. 

Other ways to wear: navy breastfeeding tank and blush blazer, black denim shorts and printed tee, speedy bandouliere and jeans.

Perfect for pregnancynavy breastfeeding tank in second trimester, speedy bandouliere in third trimester.




Navy Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A navy kimono is so easy to wear, even if it's a bold tie dye or floral print. You can wear a simple navy tank or tee underneath and a pair of your fave shorts, for a summer outfit that's quick to pull together.

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

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.

Dress: Kmart teal floral print midi dress

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!

Jeanswest Duster Kimonos With Denim Shorts, Space Dye Tees and Louis Vuitton Neverfull

If you've followed my blog for a while you'd know that I love Jeanswest. It's easily my favourite clothing store, and I always ask for gift cards from there at Christmas. So when they come out with a kimono, a much loved staple of my wardrobe, I'm very likely to get it.

They've really stepped up their game recently with a whole heap of kimonos and so I spent the last of my Christmas gift cards getting these two amazing bright kimonos from Jeanswest, perfect for summer! They were both 40% off in the sales too 😉

What I wore:

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This kimono was a must have, as soon as I saw it I knew I'd use up the last of my Christmas gift cards to get it. So perfect! It's called a poncho on the Jeanswest site but I'm just going to call it a kimono. It's so light and floaty, perfect for our hot summer days in Brisbane and it's the most cheerful bright shade of yellow!

Wore it out for the first time for a picnic by the beach with some family over visiting from WA. The sunny morning turned into a showery day when we got there so we huddled together eating hot chips to stay warm until the sun and the humidity returned. I'd picked shorts to wear as I didn't want to overheat in jeans - regretted that choice with the wind and rain, but was happy for the rest of the day when the sun came out and jeans would have been too warm.

With the plain shorts and space dye tee the yellow kimono was a nice bright pop of colour, and my Louis Vuitton neverfull is a frequently worn bag to the beach, or to a picnic, or a picnic by the beach in this case!


Last worn: space dye tee, navy tassel necklace, black distressed denim shorts, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull. First time I've worn the kimono as it was a recent purchase.

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

The last photo in front of the Jacaranda trees for the season! I had been trying to get as many pics with them as I could and when I took this photo mid-November there were already more green leaves on the trees than purple flowers. It has been fun trying to stop at the best ones we passed to get pics - although there were many more I wish I could have taken pics with. Next year!

I went back to this street with my tripod this time as I knew to get a shot of the big purple trees behind me I'd need the camera to stand on the road. The boys patiently waited for me on the pavement as I snapped away, before we headed to a coffee date with a friend and then a play in the playground. Being a hot day I'd wanted to have a bit of a splash in the bay to cool down, but a warning about the illness causing algae in the water kept us off the beach sadly!

It was too hot for anything other than shorts and a tee, but I thought that the rose gold sandals and green duster kimono dressed up the outfit nicely for meeting my friend. This kimono was another must have as soon as I saw it, and I picked it up for 40% off in the Jeanswest sale too, earlier this year. I can never resist a good sale!

Floral Duster Kimonos and Grey Tees

If you've read my blog for a while you'll know I love kimonos! I like using accessories in my outfit for a little extra touch of colour. Scarves are great in winter, as are necklaces and bags, but in spring and summer I frequently reach for my kimonos. There's something so comfortable about long duster length ones like these floral ones - taking a simple shorts and tee or jeans and tee outfit and making it feel more dressed up!

What I wore:

BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag (get 20% off with code "REAL")

Why I wore it:

The monochromatic grey tee and black skinny jeans outfit was a bit plain, even with the wooden bead necklace. This floral duster kimono added the perfect touch of colour and print and is so comfortable! Of course I couldn't resist going a little matchy-matchy and pairing the green Rebecca Minkoff mini 5-zip bag with this too, even if it does blend into the kimono a bit! They are both such nice shades of green.

Wore this for a morning of furniture shopping which turned into lunch at Ikea, taking advantage of the "kids eat free" deal they had on. Just a nice simple outfit for the challenge that is spending half the day furniture shopping with two little boys!

Why I wore it:

A much less stressful day! We took advantage of the summer-like weather and headed to the local park with my family for a picnic. The heat made me reach for a simple shorts and tee outfit, but I did want to dress it up a little for the picnic so I added this awesome floral duster. It was a Christmas gift from my mum last year and it's a firm favourite!

I thought the purple floral went nicely with the pastel pink shorts too, I like pink and purple together and I've worn a similar outfit before. The tee has a pink panel on the back too, so the sheer kimono showed a little of that pink as well.

Had to wear my big floppy sunhat for sun protection, even though we spent most of the day in the shade at the picnic table. I appreciated the hat while running around with the boys in the playground afterwards!

We had a big bag for the picnic blanket and food but I brought my Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag along as well so I had extra space to carry everything - sunscreen and water bottles. This is a great go-anywhere tote, and my go-to for picnics!

How You Can Wear It:
