Bold Printed Dresses For The Office & Weekday Wear Linkup

Another Weekday Wear Linkup for you to join, and some office style. As much as a work wardrobe needs classic, neutral basic pieces you can turn to again and again, it's fun to introduce some bolder prints and colours too!

My work wardrobe has certainly changed a lot in the 10 years I've been at my current company, from neutrals and button up shirts to bright colours, statement necklaces and fun prints. The dresses I'm wearing below might be a bit too bold for a more formal, conservative office dress code, but work perfectly in a business causal office like mine.

What I wore:


ruby olive necklace with French Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress  and fran bag | awayfromblue

Fashion Scarf Girl Navy and Gold hair scarf tie in bow on Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag | awayfromtheblue

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl Navy and Gold hair scarf (c/o) tied on bag
NecklaceRuby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
DressFrench Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress in white/geranium rose
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This orange dress is such a bold print and colour but it's perfect for our summer heat as it's linen, and the print disguises creases so it's perfect for a busy day of sitting at my desk in the office!

I added the colourful Ruby Olive necklace for a little extra colour, not that the dress needed much! I had another necklace in mind but I thought it was too much, this necklace seemed to work nicer with the orange print and it was a lovely way to remember my friend though the day, as she lost her cat the day before.

The Marc Jacobs Fran bag has been worn a few times with this dress, so I tried to change it up a little this time and wore the hair scarf tied in a bow on the handle, just a little point of difference from the last time I wore the dress and bag together.


Last worn: Ruby Olive necklace, hair scarf, orange printed dress, silver ballet flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag.

Other ways to wearhair scarf tied on wrist, orange printed dress and blazer, silver ballet flats and little black dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag and wrap dress.

NecklaceStarfish Project Veronica short yellow multi strand necklace
DressJeanswest ruffle neckline animal print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagMarc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown

Why I wore it:

This dress has been in my wardrobe for years, although it's not been as frequently worn as others. You can see the first time I wore on on the blog back in 2012, in one of my early posts! It just goes to show that animal print will always be a classic you can pull out year after year.

It's not the first time I've worn this dress with the Marc Jacobs Fran bag, they have been a frequent combination over time, as I think the carob brown of the bag works well with the neutral colours in the print. With the camel flats too, I thought the outfit needed a little touch of colour with all of the neutrals, and this yellow statement necklace was the perfect touch.


Last worn: yellow beaded necklace, leopard print dress, camel flats, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag (above).

Other ways to wearleopard print dress and blush blazer, camel flats and wrap dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag and burgundy pants.

Perfect for pregnancyleopard print dress hiding second trimester bump, camel flats in third trimester, Marc by Marc Jacobs Fran bag in second trimester.



Printed Dresses For The Office Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is such a fun office piece. You can pair it with neutral shoes and a bag to tone the print down, or cover it up a little more with a blazer if you are worried it might be too bold for your office environment. Alternatively, you can maximise the print with colourful statement necklaces and bolder handbag and shoe choices.

Peplum Tops, Pencil Skirts & Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote | Weekday Wear Linkup!

It's the Weekday Wear Linkup, with some office style!

Keeping things simple for my return to work after a bit of a break, I stuck with an outfit combo I've worn before. Peplum tanks and pencil skirts, easy office style and just what you need after a few weeks leave over Christmas (I wore these mid-January).

What I wore:

black kmart peplum frill hem sleeveless tank pink polka dot pencil skirt | awayfromblue

bird print scarf accessorising Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB Tote bag in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | black peplum tank with blush polka dot pencil skirt navy mab tote bag with scarf
Earrings: gifted Kmart navy tassel earrings
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl grey tiny bird print scarf (c/o)
Necklace: Kmart navy and gold beaded tassel necklace
Tank: Kmart black sleeveless frill hem peplum tank (new purchase)
Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Last time I wore this skirt I mentioned how much I wear it with black - the fuzzy polka dots just make black an obvious pairing! I thought the peplum tank and textured pencil skirt would be a fun combo, but still good for a busy day at work.

It was a bit of a weird day, with wind and rain forecast but also quite humid so I added this bird print scarf onto the handles of my Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag in case I needed it later with the rain. It actually started raining just after I took these photos!

With the black and pink, I decided to wear accessories that would match the navy bag for a third colour in my outfit. I loved the tassel earrings and tassel necklace together, both are Christmas gifts. Only downside was that the statement earrings kept catching on my braid. I have to remember to wear simpler pieces when I have my hair braided on the side like this!


Last worn: navy and gold tassel necklace, pink polka dot pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag. First time I've worn the peplum tank and scarf.

Other ways to wearpink polka dot pencil skirt in winter, black ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag and sheath dress.

Perfect for pregnancypink polka dot pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote bag in third trimester.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote










What I wore:

Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in hot pink on navy rebecca minkoff mab tote | away from the blue

Tank: Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

Once again, repeating the outfit formula above as I liked it so much. This time around, with a printed tank and a plan pencil skirt. And a simpler hairstyle, as I picked grey tassel earrings to match the pencil skirt and the blazer I brought along for meetings. Like the outfit above, it was both a humid and rainy day so I didn't add the blazer for the pics, but it really dressed up the outfit in the office. A grey jersey pencil skirt and a grey jersey blazer together looks very formal, even with a fun printed peplum tank in the middle.

Picked a bright pink scarf to accessorise. This crinkle one didn't get any wear during the day with my blazer worn in the office aircon instead, but I loved how it popped on the bag!


Last worn: silver tassel earrings, coin pendant necklace, pink crinkle scarf, bird print tank, jersey pencil skirt, silver bow ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote (above).

Other ways to wearbird print tank and olive jeans, jersey pencil skirt worn two ways, silver bow ballet flats and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote in winter.

Perfect for pregnancyjersey pencil skirt in third trimester, silver bow ballet flats in third trimester, Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote in first trimester.



Peplum Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A peplum tank is a flattering option, and it is such a cute touch to have a little extra frill on a basic tank. Paired with a pencil skirt (with a blazer on top if needed to meet stricter office dress codes) it makes a simple feminine office outfit. You can go with something plain, or pick a printed tank for a little more interest and colour.

Plain V-Neck Tees With Textured Pencil Skirts, Statement Necklaces and Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag | Weekday Wear Linkup

A pencil skirt and tee is a great office outfit! If you work in a business casual office like mine, it fits in with everyone else wearing jeans during the week. If your office is a little more formal, you might be able to wear this for casual Friday. You can always throw a blazer on top too if you need to be a little more dressed up.

I paired two of my fave v-neck tees with some textured pencil skirts and statement necklaces for simple summer office style.

What I wore:

black v-neck tee, pink polka dot pencil skirt business casual summer outfit Regan bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with llama charm and pink polka dot skirt | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | black plain tee polka dot blush pencil skirt navy regan bag
NecklaceEye Candy LA 'Sasha' statement necklace
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

This polka dot pencil skirt is an old favourite, and I usually end up pairing it with black, such a simple choice to match the fuzzy dots on the mesh. This plain black tee which has been a frequent go to since I bought it seemed like a nice option that I hadn't tried before.

I added the statement necklace to dress my outfit up a little. It was a busy day of meetings and presenting, so I added a blazer in my bag too, although it was much too hot for me to wear it in the photos that morning! I was pleased when my necklace got a few compliments during the day, the plain black tee really made it pop! The work day flew by too which was nice.


Last worn: plain black tee, statement necklace, pink polka dot pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

Other ways to wearplain black tee and jeans, pink polka dot pencil skirt in winter, black ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and purple jeans.

Perfect for pregnancypink polka dot pencil skirt in first trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester.


What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan









What I wore:

white v neck plain tee with blue lace pencil skirt business casual summer style | away from blue

lace skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | away from the blue

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee (new purchase)
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As you can see, I went and bought the white version of this tee since I loved the black so much! 😂 Instead of sizing down like I did with the black tee, I stuck with my regular size in this, hoping if it was a more relaxed fit it would be a little less sheer. I didn't have to worry though. This shirt isn't completely opaque but you can't see a nude bra under it so I'm happy. I did contemplate exchanging it (The Iconic have an awesome returns policy) but I decided to keep this size anyway. I do think it looked a little more casual than the outfit above though as the tee is more relaxed. I kept my blazer on for most of the time in the office, although I did take it off for our team lunch to enjoy the sunshine!

I really liked the plain white tee with the blue lace skirt, I've worn this skirt frequently with white tops before. I did feel it was lacking a little something though so I added the green necklace for a little pop of colour. My nails were green too, to match the Instagram style prompt of the day, but as I didn't take a closeup pic you'll just have to imagine it!


Last worn: green necklace, blue lace pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan (above). First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase. 

Other ways to wearblue lace pencil skirt in winter, gold mouse flats and wrap dress, Rebecca Minkoff Regan and floral dress.

Perfect for pregnancyblue lace pencil skirt in second trimester, gold mouse flats in third trimester.



V-Neck Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A plain tee is a staple in many wardrobes, especially a mum wardrobe where you need simple, practical and machine washable pieces! If you have a casual business environment in the office, you can make your tee do double duty by wearing it with a pencil skirt. Feel free to cover it up with a blazer or keep it to casual Fridays if your office is more formal.

Wrap Dresses For The Office With Balenciaga Bags | Weekday Wear Linkup

A wrap dress is such a classic piece and it's an office staple for me. When I'm not sure what to wear, a printed wrap dress solves that problem really easily! (Plus, scroll down for the Weekday Wear link up!)

What I wore:

jeanswest floral black white wrap dress for office with purple balenciaga work bag summer style | awayfromblue

Balenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | jeanswest floral black white wrap dress with purple Balenciaga work bag
EarringsA Little Bit of North blue mandala earrings (giveaway prize, close up photo)
Necklace: custom Cooper charm by Silhoupette
DressJeanswest floral wrap dress (with Cotton On 'eternity' tank in charcoal marle underneath)
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava White leopard ballet flats
Bracelets: the usual plus plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

This wrap dress is an old classic and I refuse to let it go - it predates me even meeting my husband and we've been together almost 13 years. Of course, as I mentioned on Instagram, things are a little different now after breastfeeding two babies compared to my pre-kids uni days, so I like to add a singlet underneath for a little extra coverage!

I've worn this purple Balenciaga work bag and this floral printed wrap dress together before, I really like the combination. First time I've tired the leopard print flats with this dress though. I wouldn't normally try florals and leopard together, but I thought the black and white in both prints made these shoes an easy choice. I liked the combo.


Last worn: floral print wrap dress, statement earrings, grey tank, silhoupette necklace, leopard print flats, Balenciaga work bag.

Other ways to wearfloral print wrap dress and trench coat, grey tank and pink vest, leopard print flats and jeans, Balenciaga work bag and layered outfit.

Perfect for pregnancyfloral print wrap dress in second trimester, grey tank in third trimester.

DressAtmos&Here Betsy jersey wrap dress in watercolour print
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
Bracelets: the usual plus Edenborough Evans 'Ivy' silver cuff
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first outfit, this tempete Balenciaga day bag and watercolour printed wrap dress have not been worn together often before. I really like the combination of the shades of blue together. For another shade of blue, I added in my navy tassel earrings, they are always a fun addition to a work outfit. I can't wear them at home around the boys as they can be a little grabby and I'd rather have my earlobes intact while they are still learning what gentle means! I continued the gold accessories matching the necklace to the earrings, even though the hardware on the bag was silver. I feel they are far enough apart that it worked.

I kept things simple with the shoes too. These silver flats go with everything, and have been frequently worn with the wrap dress in the past.


Last worn: tassel earrings, gold silhoupette necklace, watercolour wrap dress, silver bow flats, Balenciaga tempete day bag.

Other ways to wearwatercolour wrap dress in winter, silver bow flats and skinny jeans, Balenciaga tempete day bag and maxi dress.

Perfect for pregnancywatercolour wrap dress in third trimester, silver bow flats in third trimester, Balenciaga tempete day bag in second trimester.


Wrap Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A wrap dress is a classic style that never goes out of date. A true wraparound and not a faux one is a great option to have in your wardrobe for years as it easily adjusts to body changes over time just by tying it a little tighter or looser as needed. It makes such an easy office outfit, just pull on and go.

Ruffle Camis and Blue Pencil Skirts For The Office | Weekday Wear Linkup

Summer time means I get my camis out, and wonder why I never wear them! These spaghetti strap ruffle camis are so fun to wear, even though in most offices you'll have to cover them up, with a cardigan like I did in the first outfit, or a blazer in the second. I've got another edition of my weekly linkup you can join at the end too!

What I wore:

summer office outfit pleated white ruffle cami with lace navy pencil skirt and rebecca minkoff regan bag | away from blue

lace pencil skirt and navy moon rebecca minkoff regan satchel bag llama bag charm | away from the blue

awayfromblue instagram | summer pleated ruffle cami and lace pencil skirt outfit with navy tote bag
NecklaceRuby Olive Art series long striped pod necklace
CamiJeanswest 'Maria' cami in cream
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As mentioned above, I did throw a cardi on over this in the office, but it was much too hot that morning to take pics with it on!

When I was thinking up what to wear to work I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn these pieces together before! They are both older pieces in my wardrobe, and I've worn this blue lace skirt with white tops in the past, just not this cami. I really liked the combination. Simple for a hot day and the subtle pleated texture to the cami worked really well with the textured pencil skirt I thought.

Of course with the navy skirt I had to pick a navy bag, so I went with this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag for a little matchy-matchy. This bag is a great neutral base, perfect for further accessorising so I added my new llama keychain. 😂 I have a lot of fun bag charms, but this one made me smile as soon as I saw it and I knew I had to buy it right away! I added more colour to my outfit with this dotty necklace, such a great accessory with the blue and white.


Last worn: white cami, colourful statement necklace, blue lace pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan.

Other ways to wearwhite cami and maxi skirt, blue lace pencil skirt in monochrome outfit, silver ballet flats and skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Regan and pleated skirt.

Perfect for pregnancywhite cami in second trimester, blue lace pencil skirt in third trimester, silver ballet flats in third trimester.

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
CamiJeanswest peach ruffle cami
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

A little cooler this morning (although not by much!) so I had my blazer on in photos. This cami looks a bit rumpled in the photos, but it was a pleasure to wear. Again, it was a simple outfit, I like peach and navy together so the jacquard skirt and plain ruffle cami seemed like a good pairing. I was in a bit of a rush that morning though and not feeling the best, so a hastily half tucked cami is what you get!

I actually wasn't sure I'd make it through the whole day at work, but with a lot of meetings I powered through and got to the end of the day. Overall I liked this outfit as much as the one above, I just didn't enjoy wearing it as much as I wasn't feeling the best!


Last worn: jersey blazer, peach ruffle cami, tassel pendant necklace, jacquard pencil skirt, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above).

Other ways to wearjersey blazer and jeans, peach ruffle cami and pleated skirt, jacquard pencil skirt with mustard, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats and lace dress, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag and wrap dress.

Perfect for pregnancyjersey blazer in third trimester, jacquard pencil skirt in first trimester, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats in second trimester.


Ruffle Camis Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A classic cami and pencil skirt is a work staple! In most offices, spaghetti straps are frowned on or just not allowed in the office dress code. It's easy to cover up and make your look a little more formal with a blazer, perfect for a day of meetings! Or if your office is a little more casual like mine you could just throw a cardigan on top.

New Weekday Wear Linkup! Blue Dresses and Pink Balenciaga City Bag: Summer Office Outfits

Two simple summer office outfits, with two pretty printed dresses and a pink Balenciaga city bag. All pieces I love and have worn before, but I do have something new to share with you - a new outfit linkup!

What I wore:

paisley print french connection blue sheath dress with balenciaga pink sorbet city bag | awayfromblue

paisley print dress with 2010 pink balenciaga sorbet city bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram paisley print sheath dress pink Balenciaga sorbet city bag summer office outfit
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

Sometimes I find the square neckline of this sheath dress a little tricky to accessorise, I often debate for a while each morning about what necklace to wear. This long pendant necklace has been a frequently worn one lately though, so I decided to give it a go and I really liked the combination!

The paisley print dress and pink Balenciaga city bag are frequently worn together, I really like pink and blue! And as I had a gold necklace, these gold mouse flats were an obvious shoe choice. Really easy summer office style. I did have a blazer too for the cold aircon in the office, but it was much too hot to wear it for photos in the morning.


Last worn: long tassel necklace, paisley print sheath dress, gold mouse flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

Other ways to wearpaisley print sheath dress and blazer, gold mouse flats and pencil skirt, Balenciaga sorbet city bag in winter.

Perfect for pregnancypaisley print sheath dress in second trimester, gold mouse flats in second trimester, Balenciaga sorbet city bag in second trimester.



What's In My Bag: Balenciaga Sorbet City Bag










What I wore:

DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
BeltRebecca Minkoff Liv double wrap velvet belt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

It was a little cooler this morning (although not by much) so I wore my blazer for the pics. Again I picked a gold necklace to wear with the blue printed dress, this Kmart one is another frequently worn one, and so cheap too! For the blazer, shoes and belt I went with black, due to the darker colours in the Ikat print of the dress.

While the blue print in this dress is darker than the one above, I still think the pink Balenciaga city bag is a fun accessory with it - it really pops with the darker background.

A little bit of a quieter day at work meant the opportunity to get some training in too which was wonderful - we have an online training site but I so rarely get the opportunity to use it and there were some courses I've been wanting to do for a while!


Last worn: black jersey blazer, blue and gold necklace, Ikat print dress, velvet belt, black ballet flats, Balenciaga sorbet city bag (above).

Other ways to wearjersey blazer and jeans, Ikat print dress with green, velvet belt over a blazer, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Balenciaga sorbet city bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancyblack jersey blazer in third trimester, Ikat print dress in third trimester, black ballet flats in second trimester, Balenciaga sorbet city bag in second trimester.



Blue Printed Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is such an easy office option as you can just pull-on and go. You can always accessorise with a nice neutral like all the black pieces I wore in the second outfit, or make a brightly coloured dress even brighter with a bold bag like the pink Balenciaga city.
