Weekday Wear Linkup - Textured Pencil Skirts and Jewel Toned Blouses For The Office

For this week's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two more office outfits, pairing some pretty jewel toned blouses with textured pencil skirts and cosy waterfall cardigans.

With the warmer spring like weather in Brisbane I was glad I could shed some of the layers and just wear these cardigans...even if I had to add tights on my second day in the office!

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted blue multi stand long beaded necklace
TopJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry
SkirtWarehouse navy jacquard pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Excited by the warmer weather, I went bare legged to the office. It was a little chilly in the morning still, although it did warm up nicely during the day. The cardigan kept me cosy too, this navy one is a frequently worn one over the colder months, and I'm surprised this is the first time I've worn this berry blouse with navy! I like to wear a lot of things with blue, as it's my favourite colour.

The blouse and jacquard pencil skirt were such a comfortable outfit choice, and the beaded necklace tied together the navy cardigan and skirt well. Even if I did manage to snag this necklace and had to hurriedly try repair it before the beads flew everywhere, ha! I did loose a few beads but as I lost some length knotting it back together I don't think you can really tell!

Was such a nice outfit for a busy morning at work with a big team celebration at lunch time.


Last worn: navy cardigan, berry blouse, jacquard pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the necklace on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

What's In My Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above - and I'm not sure why as they are so incredibly similar! Possibly because this skirt is longer? Or because I kept the blouse untucked? I did like the colour combo though, the red waterfall cardigan really pops with the blue peasant blouse and lace pencil skirt.

The fleece lined tights in this outfit kept me cosier in the early morning start too, and I was glad I'd worn them as it was a much colder day! Luckily I managed to avoid the rain all day.

I really want to wear this red cardigan a little bit more before the warm spring weather truly sets in in Brisbane - probably won't wear it with this skirt again though, ha!


Last worn: red waterfall cardigan, tassel earrings, navy peasant blouse, blue lace pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere (above).

Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A cosy waterfall cardigan is a great outwear option for spring or autumn, and is easy to pop in your bag if it warms up during the day. You can go matchy-matchy like the first outfit and match the colour of the cardigan to other pieces in your outfit, or just add it as a bold pop of colour like I have in the second outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Matching Handbags and Necklaces with Printed Shirts and Colourful Pants For The Office

For roday's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing two simple yet colourful outfits I wore to the office. Keeping the accessories as colourful as my pants, I matched my handbags to my bright beaded statement necklaces. I've previously shared about matching bags to shoes, scarves and printed tees before, this time I'm wearing matching accessories together.

What I wore:

olive skinny jeans and mixed print shirt business causal outfit matching shoes and necklace emerald green | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
ShirtJeanswest 'Ruby' mixed print shirt
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff emerald green mini 5-zip rocker bag

Why I wore it:

In case you missed me sharing the news on Instagram, this fluffy and very curious dog is our temporary foster family member while we dogsit. She loves coming up to me while I'm taking photos and trying to figure out what I'm doing, it can make taking photos a little tricky!

I was eager to wear my new Rebecca Minkoff mini 5 zip bag after I bought it on eBay, and I knew this green statement necklace would be the perfect match with it. I've worn it with olive jeans before so knew I'd like this combination, and this printed shirt is an easy simple piece to make my jeans a little more dressed up for the office. But when your boss wears jeans you don't really need to try too hard to dress up denim!


Last worn: mixed print shirt, green statement necklace, olive skinny jeans, gold mouse flats. It's the first time I've worn the bag on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearmixed print shirt and shorts, olive skinny jeans for long haul flight, gold mouse flats and wrap dress.

Perfect for pregnancymixed print shirt in first trimester, gold mouse flats in third trimester.


My Favourite Rebecca Minkoff Bag:







What I wore:

pinstripe shirt with burgundy pants and red accessories matching necklace and bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue
Necklace: thrifted red flat bead necklace
Shirt: Target mint stripe shirt
PantsJeanswest 'Fiona' skinny leg pant in shiraz
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs logo plaque flats in camel
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I've worn this mint striped shirt with the burgundy pants before and really liked the combination, so I thought I'd wear it again. A classic button up shirt is great for the office, and this one is a comfortable linen. It does however start to look quickly crumpled through the day, and was more noticeable as I left the sleeves down this time instead of rolling them up.

The red and burgundy combo was a new one for me to try - this thrifted necklace pairs so nicely with the red Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag and I thought they would be a fun combo together with the pants.

Didn't like this as much as last time I wore this shirt and pants together though, I think since I was trying the red and burgundy I should have went with a more neutral shirt. Very comfortable outfit for a busy day at work though!


Last worn: mint striped shirt, red statement necklace, burgundy pants, camel ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

Other ways to wearmint striped shirt and pencil skirt, burgundy pants and embroidered blouse, camel ballet flats and sheath dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag and shorts.

Perfect for pregnancymint striped shirt in second trimester, burgundy pants in first trimester, camel ballet flats in third trimester.



Printed Shirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic printed shirt works well in the office to bring a little interest to corporate separates. For something a little more fun, you can try pairing a printed shirt with colourful pants, or sneaking a pair of jeans into your outfit like I have with the first one if you work in a less formal environment.

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:

colourful spring corporate style office outfit ankle boots orange sheath dress mustard cardigan neverfull bag | awayfromblue

orange printed sheath dress with louis vuitton neverfull mm tote | awayfromtheblue


awayfromtheblue Instagram | orange printed sheath dress with mustard yellow cardigan colourful office outfit
Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
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!

JacketJeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
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!


Last worn: purple cardigan, purple scarf, paisley print dress, black ballet flats, Louis Vuitton neverfull (above).

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.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Grey Knits With Extra Details, Pencil Skirts and Chloe Paddington Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup I'm sharing some more office wear, easy outfits for winter. Just a grey knit (with a little extra detail), a black pencil skirt, bright scarf and my forever classic Chloe Paddington bag.

What I wore:

winter colourful yellow scarf grey embellished knit jumper and pencil skirt outfit | away from blue

yellow scarf and Chloe Paddington in 2007 Brun | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | winter office outfit bold yellow scarf grey embellished knit pencil skirt chloe paddington bag
ScarfLove Quotes knotted tassel linen scarf in sunshine yellow
KnitWarehouse grey bead front jumper
SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

A slightly warmer winter morning after a rather cold snap meant I pulled out my cheeriest scarf! This big yellow blanket scarf is one I sometimes think is too big for my petite frame. I've even considered chopping it in half before! But I can't deny that whenever I wear it it makes me smile, it's so bold and colourful. Was the perfect touch of colour with my otherwise neutral outfit.

The embellished grey knit is a wardrobe oldie too, it's so good with a pencil skirt to the office. I tend not to wear it on days at home with the boys much as I'm worried the little beads would soon fall off after a lot of tugging from a curious toddler....much more suited to time in the office with grown ups!

Felt like taking my Chloe Paddington out for another spin. It's a much treasured piece in my wardrobe, my first ever luxury handbag purchase, and despite it being the heaviest bag I own I just can't part with it. Chloe have even reinterpreted the padlock design recently, but nothing beats the original!


Last worn: yellow scarf, embellished knit, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Chloe Paddington bag.

Scarf: blue tartan scarf
JumperJeanswest Kara foil pullover in smoke marl and silver
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagChloe Paddington in 2007 Brun

Why I wore it:

Another cosy and comfortable grey knit with a black pencil skirt for the office - if something works, why not repeat it! This time around the casual grey knit has a little extra detail in the form of foil polka dots! I do wear this knit on my stay at home mum days, but it also works well in the office.

I thought this blue tartan scarf would be a fun burst of colour with the black and grey, and while the jumper does have polka dots on it I thought it was subtle enough to be able to wear the tartan print with it. Again, I took my Chloe Paddington bag. I promptly put it back in its dustbag on its storage shelf when I got home though - I can only carry a bag this heavy so many times! And to think, before kids, at the height of the Paddington craze, I used to wear one (of 5 different ones I had!!) almost every day! 😅

How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey knit is a wardrobe staple, and picking one with a little extra detail like a foil print or added embellishment makes your outfit feel a little more special. A bold accessory like a scarf can add an extra touch of colour and warmth to your outfit.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Ombre Knit Worn 2 Ways

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm sharing two ways to wear this fun ombre knit I bought a few years ago from Jeanswest. It worked perfectly for a busy day in the office and then dinner out with some mum friends in the evening.

What I wore:

ombre knit in office with star print scarf tench coat pencil skirt magenta rebecca minkoff edie bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta | awayfromtheblue

awayfromthblue Instagram | camel trench ombre knit jumper pencil skirt star print scarf magenta bag winter office outfit
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Scarf: star print pashmina
JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

On a cold winter day, a nice knit jumper, black pencil skirt and fleece-lined tights is such an easy choice for the office, especially if you're in a casual work environment like I am. The ombre knit kept me so warm I only needed the fun star print scarf on the commute. The neutral stars pair perfectly with the camel trench coat. With all of the neutrals, even silver ballet flats, I felt this outfit needed a little pop so I wore my Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag in magenta, such a great touch of colour.

It was a little bit of a hectic day at work, ending with a big presentation that I was quite nervous about! Thankfully I had my colleague there too helping me present, and I was relieved to get good feedback about our session afterwards, as well as some compliments on my knit! A forever classic I think.


Last worn: camel trench coat, star print scarf, ombre knit, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag.

ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagRebecca Minkoff chevron quilted small Love crossbody bag in pale coral

Why I wore it:

After the day at work above, I quickly dashed home to get changed and get a photo before the sun set! I kept the same knit, as I love it so much, and just made a few extra changes to make a more cheerful outfit for an evening out with some mum friends trying a new restaurant.

I've worn this ombre knit with my burgundy pants before, but this is the first time I've worn it with my red jeans. I really liked the combination, and wanted to continue the red theme with the fun skull scarf. A black leather jacket seemed a more casual option than a trench coat, but still cosy, and I added some ankle boots to keep me warm. I did look at the photos afterwards and think I should have worn black ankle boots with this instead of my nude Acne pistol boots, but with these having a bit of a heel there aren't many opportunities in mum life to wear them and I jumped at the opportunity to wear them to dinner!

The coral mini MAC bag was a completely different colour, it really seems more peach than coral to me despite the official colour name,so I thought the orange and red would look nice together. I really liked this and had a wonderful night out!

Ombre Knits Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

It's great to have pieces that do double duty in the office and outside of work too! A classic neutral knit is something you will find easy to wear for so many occasions. An ombre knit looks great with other neutral pieces or can be made more fun with brighter and colourful pieces.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Feather Print Scarves & Pencil Skirts For Winter Office Wear

For today's Weekday Wear Linkup, I'm wearing two similar pencil skirt outfits for work with some fun feather detail scarves. One is a feather print scarf and the other is embroidered feathers. Both are wonderfully cosy!

What I wore:

camel trench coat, feather print scarf, white jumper, blush polka dot pencil skirt, Mulberry bayswater | awayfromblue

oak NVT Mulberry heritage bayswater bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue camel trench white knit, blush polka dot pencil skirt mulberry bayswater winter office outfit
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
Scarf: Nali feather print pashmina scarf
Jumper: white vintage knit jumper from my mum's wardrobe
SkirtCotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

It was a really cold day when I wore this! I know I've worn this pencil skirt recently but I really wanted to wear it again, this time with a cosy white knit that's originally from my mums wardrobe. Even the ribbed jumper wasn't enough to keep me warm though, the taupe feather print scarf was a must have for the cold morning. So were the ankle boots!

With all of the neutrals I went with my pink tassel earrings to add a little more colour, even though it's a brighter pink than the blush of the skirt I think it worked nicely.


Last worn: camel trench, pink tassel earrings, feather print scarf, white ribbed knit, polka dot pencil skirtankle bootsMulberry Bayswater tote.

What's In My Bag: Mulberry Bayswater










What I wore:

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Skirt:  Jeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagMulberry Bayswater in Oak NVT leather (cheaper second hand)

Why I wore it:

I felt a bit flustered this morning! The weather was much warmer, which meant me ditching the knit I'd planned to wear the night before, and just wearing a grey tee under my navy coat. I still wanted to wear my pretty feather embroidered scarf though, and I thought the darker grey worked nicely with the lighter grey of the tee.

With having to change my outfit at the last minute because of the weather, and already running a little late, I had a very rushed start to the day, especially after taking the first few photos with my bag facing backwards, and having to retake them again so you could actually see the detail on the Mulberry bayswater bag! Thankfully the day improved from there.


Last worn: navy mac, grey v-neck tee, feather embroidered scarf, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Mulberry Bayswater (above).

Other ways to wearnavy mac and stripes, grey v-neck tee and shorts, feather embroidered scarf and printed dress, black pencil skirt over a dress, black ballet flats and skinny jeans, Mulberry Bayswater and chambray dress.

Feather Print Scarves Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A simple neutral top works well with a pencil skirt in the office. You can wear a knit if it's colder or a casual tee when it warms up a little. You can add a scarf for some extra interest and warmth in your daily commute too, and a printed or embroidered one is a great idea if your top is a basic neutral.
