Layering Tees Under Sleeveless Dresses For The Office With Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

When I'm feeling uninspired, I often go back through the archives of the blog to find the different ways I've worn things, to give me some inspiration. With a tough week, I knew I wanted easy outfits for the office, so I went with my classic fit and flare dresses. Looking back to one of the first ways I wore the black dress gave me the idea to layer them over some long sleeve tees. Great way to add some colour to an office outfit, and also keep me warm on the cold commute. The blue scarves were an extra touch of colour to brighten my day.

What I wore:

ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
Tee: Valleygirl blue 3/4 sleeve tee
DressJeanswest tucked ponte black dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this teal top and little black dress together, that was an easy decision to make. I stood in front of my wardrobe the night before trying to think what scarf to wear with it, before I gave up and went to bed, leaving a pile of scarves to go through in the morning.

Most days I plan my outfit out the night before I wear it, but sometimes I leave accessory decisions to the last moment! I'm glad I did though, as when I'd put the outfit on in the morning and started looking at the scarves with it, this teal skull scarf was the obvious winner as the colours matched so well. You know I love a bit of matchy-matchy.

I felt great about this outfit - comfortable and practical for all of the rushing around I had to do, trying to make sure everything was in place to finish work early and race across the city for an urgent appointment for my son. I feel like 90% of my posts recently have been about one or both of the boys being unwell, winter hit us hard this year! I got a sweet gift from my colleagues as they know we've been having a hard time lately.

Why I wore it:

While the blues here don't match at all, I also really liked this outfit. I tend to default to blue when I need a bit of a boost - my favourite colour, a frequent go to as I know it's easy to wear, and sometimes you just need to simplify things as much as possible when life gets crazy.

The navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag was another shade of blue with the outfit, but I think all the different shades worked nicely with the black and white dress. Black and white is such a classic combo you can go all out with the other pieces you add to your outfit!

It was a really cold morning and I did regret picking ballet flats over ankle boots! I did add a trench coat to both this outfit and the one above too, but didn't wear it for the pictures as it would have covered up the sleeves!

How You Can Wear It:

A classic sleeveless dress can be worn to the office year round! In the cooler months it's easy to winterise your dress by layering a long sleeve tee underneath. You can take the opportunity to add some colour to a neutral dress with a bold tee as I have, or keep things simple and stick with a neutral tee to compliment the dress.

Floral Swing Dresses In Winter With Cardigans and Ankle Boots

Just as I try to wear most of my wardrobe year-round, I don't reserve prints for a particular season. While florals are great to wear in spring and summer, they are so easy to layer up for winter too, as I've done here with these light floral dresses.

What I wore:




ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I didn't set out to wear this dress without a jacket. I'd planned to put a cardigan over the top, but quickly realised that the tight sleeves over the statement bell sleeves on this dress weren't going to work! I rushed out the door in the morning anyway as I had to drop the boys off at daycare and it wasn't too cold. When the rain set in later in the afternoon and I had to go to the dentist though I spent a few minutes hunting in my wardrobe and decided on a leather jacket, the thicker material hiding any bunching up of the sleeve. Next time I wear this dress I'll definitely have to wear it with a leather jacket!

This scarf helped keep me cosy too - with it being a wool blend it's so snuggly and warm to wear. I liked the bold blue against the mustard of the dress too, a great colour combination.

The red lip was me trying a Charlotte Tilbury lip tint I won in a giveaway a while back. A very bold red, I made the mistake of wearing it without makeup and think I really need makeup so my face doesn't look as deathly pale with it, ha!

While it wasn't a particularly exciting day, working from home with the daycare drop off / pick up and a dentist appointment, sometimes it's nice just to throw on a pretty dress anyway, and it's been a while since I last wore this one.


Last worn: Louis Vuitton monogram shawl, mustard floral ruffle dress, ASOS Chelsea ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel.

Rebecca Minkoff Canvas Vs Leather Mini MAC






What I wore:



JacketJeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in scarlett marle
DressShein navy flower print flowy dress (C/O)
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

Unlike the first outfit, I didn't love this one as much! We had a relative over from Western Australia, and it's been so long since we last saw each other I'm not actually sure when we saw each other last! Now both grown up with kids, it was fun for the kids to get together and we headed into the city. I wanted to wear something pretty for our outing to seem a little dressed up so I decided on this floral dress, and thought the red cardigan would work nicely with it. I realised as I was about to rush out the door that while the colour combo looked nice, the shapes together didn't. I should have thrown a belt over this, but didn't have time so I wore it anyway.

Not my worst outfit, but definitely not my favourite. After walking around some markets in the city, we went to the Winter Wonderland ice rink in King George Square. They had a snow tubing slide set up where you could slide down some 'snow' (really more like ice!) of course all the kids wanted to do it, even Baby Boy. I ended up having to go with him as he was too little to go himself. 4 year old T was fearless and was happy to slide down himself with his new friend (as long as I dragged his snow tube up the stairs....!) and Baby Boy and I had to wiggle into one tube. Not a problem, just a little difficult to do in a dress, especially getting out the tube at the bottom of the hill with everyone watching!

45 minutes into the hour long session I had to admit defeat and I traded my ticket with hubby who took the little one up and down the hill.

After a very delicious lunch at the Pancake manor we said our goodbyes and headed home, where the boys had massive naps!

How You Can Wear It:

You don't have to pack away your floral dresses for winter weather. Try layering them up a bit with some winter essentials like tights and ankle boots, with a scarf or cardigan for an extra colourful and cosy layer.

Navy Tops, Grey Pencil Skirts and Purple Scarves With Trench Coats and Rebecca Minkoff Regan

Pencil skirts are a work staple for me, year-round! It's easy to layer them up a little for the colder weather. My trench coat tends to be a winter only piece, and add some tights and a cosy scarf and a pencil skirt works well for even a cold winter morning commute.

Has to be said though, the days I wore these outfits the weather wasn't that cold. I managed to go out for lunch and leave the heavy coats behind at my desk, as it warmed up nicely by lunch time.

What I wore:

winter office wear navy blouse grey pencil skirt purple leopard print scarf trench coat | awayfromblue

purple leopard pritn scarf, Rebecca Minkoff regan satchel in moon navy | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | pruple leopard print scarf winter office outfit navy blouse grey skirt trench coat

Scarf: Sportsgirl animal scarf in violet
BlouseJeanswest chana long sleeve stud top in night sky navy
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I really like wearing this navy blouse with grey, I've done it before here so I thought I'd repeat it again with a grey pencil skirt. I liked the combination. This fun purple leopard print scarf hadn't been worn yet this winter so it seemed like a great choice to add to my outfit to keep me cosy on my cold commute into the office. I really like purple and blue together.

With the navy blouse, a navy bag seemed like a perfect pairing. Again, this is a combination I've tried before, I like the matchy-matchy-ness of it.

As I'd forgotten to get my lunch out of the fridge in the morning before I left the house, I popped out at lunch time to pick up something. It was warm enough that I was able to leave my trench coat behind, although I did keep my scarf on.

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Following the same outfit formula with a blue top, grey pencil skirt and purple(ish) scarf.

It was a bit of a different day at work as I was in a workshop all day - thought this jersey skirt in a more casual fabric would work well. I really liked the printed shirt with it, although they were different fabrics I felt the shirt dressed up the skirt a little.

Despite the busy print on the shirt, I added another printed scarf, this time my purpleish Alexander McQueen Skull scarf. I ended up not needing the scarf for most of the day, and when we broke for lunch I left my scarf and coat behind to go outside and catch up with hubby. He was in the city over lunch again, visiting another office. Just like last time, it was good to catch up without kids.

I decided to keep wearing the Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag - I thought it went nicely with both the top and navy macintosh in this outfit.

Grey Pencil Skirts Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Navy and grey is a great neutral combination, perfect for work. A longer sleeved top, with or without a print, and a classic grey pencil skirt makes for an easy winter office outfit. You can add more colour and a little extra warmth with a purple scarf. Purple and navy are lovely together.

Accessorising Bags & Winter Office Wear With Printed Skirts

Embracing winter weather and getting my fleecy tights and my knits out for some colourful office outfits. I'm glad I have a business casual dress code at work that lets me be a little more creative with what I wear.

Both these outfits follow the same outfit formula, and despite the different colour schemes in each, I kept the same fun accessory on my bag. The silk 'scarf' tied in a bow on the Regan handle is actually a belt from the skirt in the first photo.

What I wore:

blue green adn yellow colourful winter business casual office outfit scarf on bag | awayfromblue

matching silk skirt and scarf tied in bow on Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram green gold navy blue outfit winter colourful office wear accessorising bag
JacketJeanswest Monica Mac coat in Indigo
NecklaceStarfish Project Hannah turquoise bead necklace
Top: Valleygirl blue knit jumper
SkirtFrench Connection silk leaf print skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

This skirt is silk, so it's quite light, but with a pair of fleece lined tights it was perfect for a cold morning. I wasn't sure what to do with the silk belt that comes with this skirt at first, then I realised I could just use it to accessorise my bag! (Video showing more ways you can accessorise your bags below.)

After trying it in pregnancy, I've been embracing green and blue together a lot more so I thought that this cobalt marle knit would work nicely with the green and yellow in this skirt. I wasn't too sure about the combo after first trying it on, but grabbing this green beaded necklace really tied it together for me and I loved this outfit combo. It did feel a bit matchy matchy, blue knit, coat and bag, with green skirt, bow on bag and necklace, but I do like a little matchy matchy!

What I wore:

awayfromtheblue instagram | trench coat monochrome mustard outfit with navy regan bag
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
Necklace: Kmart Gold and Navy beaded necklace (recent purchase)
Top: thrifted SES fashions mustard marle knit jumper (recent purchase)
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As I usually do, copying the outfit formula I enjoyed so much from the first outfit to create this second one. I kept things a little more monochromatic this time around, with all of the yellow. I debated changing out the silk bow on the Regan bag but I think the yellow in the leaf print worked nicely with the yellow in this skirt.

Just like the outfit above, this marle knit is a thrift find too, only $1! It's actually a really orange-y thread with a few flecks of gold metallic, but with the marle it looks mustard - and if you've read my blog before you'll probably know I've been loving everything mustard. I smiled when I saw this, as I had just been admiring an email from Jeanswest with their new yellow heavy knit collection before I stopped by the opshop. Perfect thing to find! The sleeves are a bit long for my petite self, but at the moment I'm just rolling them up before I can get to the tailor.

The necklace is another new piece - $3 in the Kmart sale! I like statement necklaces like this, and I felt the green and blue went with the yellow in my outfit nicely.


Last worn: trench coat, pleated a-line skirt, Walnut Melbourne flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel (above). First time I've worn the mustard knit as it's a recent opshop find.

Marle Knits Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:


While thin open knits like these jumpers might be a spring or autumn staple in other parts of the world, they are perfect for Brisbane winters. A cosy knit isn't just a weekend option, you can easily dress them up a little for a business casual office with a pretty skirt. A statement necklace makes the look a little more formal as well, or you could always add heels, a blazer, and swap to a pencil skirt to dress it up even more.

Black and White Dresses For The Office With Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

The beauty of a black and white dress is that you can really accessorise with anything! I even got to get out one of my scarves I've been waiting to wear.

As you can see from the outfits below, although these were worn just a day apart there was a big change in the temperatures! A couple of weeks ago it eventually started cooling down in Brisbane. This Friday is the first day of winter, so it's about time we had some cooler weather!

What I wore:

blush pink blazer and Rebecca Minkoff velvet double wrap belt, Regan bag, autumn office style | awayfromblue

silver bracelet stack, Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram blush pink blazer belted over stripe fit and flare dress with rebecca minkoff regan bag
JacketJeanswest Nadine 3/4 sleeve dusky pink blazer
DressJeanswest 'Rita' stripe jersey dress
BeltRebecca Minkoff Liv double wrap velvet belt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs black logo plaque ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've belted this blazer, but I think this is my favourite outfit I've created with it. I have worn this belted over a black fit and flare dress before, this time around I really liked the double wrap velvet belt and the pink with the black and white.

The only thing I didn't like with this outfit was that it was a little chilly in the morning - after taking photos, I ran inside to grab a scarf as I packed the tripod away before I left for work. Didn't have time to get photos with the scarf, but it stayed off for the rest of the day as the weather heated up. Headed out to the Brisbane Botanical Gardens again with my friend to take some photos. While she doesn't have an active blog, she is modelling some pieces she's been sent so I was happy to enjoy the autumn sunshine and take some pics for her. Managed to get a pic of my outfit too! We had time for a quick lunch after before we headed back to the office, with an afternoon full of meetings for me.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

A much cooler morning had me pulling out my Grandma's knitted dress. It was one of the pieces I'd packed away for winter. I'd recently unboxed all my winter things, perfect timing for the weather change. While this dress has been worn a few times, it's the first time I had the opportunity to wear this beautiful personalised scarf my friend sent me. The gold embroidered feathers are complimented with my name in gold foil, it's such a sweet gift.

This was just the right amount of layers for a wet and cold autumn day, although I am wondering if I'll have to get my tights out soon! Again, just like the outfit above, I stuck with my Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag, the neutral navy goes with so much.


Last worn: cream blazer, knitted dress, Walnut Melbourne ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (above). First time I've worn the scarf.

Black and White Dresses For The Office Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic black and white dress is an office essential. It's an instant throw on and go outfit. You can add a blazer if it's cooler or you want your outfit to seem a little more professional. The black and white is also a great backdrop to add some colour to, like the blush blazer in the first outfit, or to try print mixing with the feather print scarf in the second outfit.

Two Ways to Wear: Jeanswest Chana Long Sleeve Studded Navy Boho Peasant Top With Balenciaga City and Rebecca Minkoff Regan

When I got the email that Jeanswest had a sale on, I hopped on the site for a quick browse. I saw this top and instantly fell in love, and purchased it the same day. Originally $59, reduced to $20, I couldn't say no! While it's got the tassels and the studs, it's still a lovely neutral navy, and I can see it going with so much in my wardrobe. I wore it below for a casual day of shopping, and more formally for a day at the office.

What I wore:

ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
ShoesBalenciaga studded sandals in sorbet RGGH
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet (more affordable preloved)

Why I wore it:

After a busy few weeks, I was really looking forward to a relaxing day of shopping. As relaxing as it can be with two little boys in tow! Overall, they were pretty good. We had time to browse a few stores. I had a hunt through the Jeanswest sale again, and while I tried some things on nothing came home with me. My sister did buy this star print tee which you might remember I bought last month! We have quite a few of the same or similar pieces in our wardrobes actually, so I wasn't surprised when she picked it up.

With the navy top and navy shorts together, I wanted something to break it up a little. I was originally going to wear my pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, but felt a bigger pop of colour was needed. The sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag was perfect, and it meant I could be matchy matchy with the Balenciaga sandals as well, not just the top and shorts.


Last worn: printed shorts, Balenciaga sandals, Balenciaga sorbet city. First time I've worn the top as it's a recent purchase.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I woke up this morning not feeling too great, but figured it was because of a busier than weekend. Put on this lovely top to boost my mood, and the Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag as I like how nicely the navy colours work together. Once I was at work I realised I couldn't shake the head cold, and ended up going home a little early after my final meeting for the day. I intended to rest up for a couple hours before the boys got home from daycare, with the idea that I'd feel better the next day after resting. Unfortunately, I did not. I ended up being pretty sick for a few days - as were the boys, which didn't help with resting and recovering! Thankfully we are all feeling much better now.


I'm glad it was a warm enough morning that I didn't need a blazer with this so that it was easier to see the fun studded sleeve detail. I did wish at the end of the day when I started getting feverish that I'd had a scarf in my bag to wrap myself up in though. Heading home to bed was the next best thing!

More Boho Style Peasant Tops For Work And Weekend Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Neutral tops like this in modest cuts are perfect for casual days out with the boys, or more formally with a pencil skirt for the office. The beauty of a block colour top is that you can pair it with fun printed pieces without worrying about patterns clashing. I'm always looking for more ways to wear pieces in my wardrobe, so tops like this that do double duty in the office and on weekends are must-haves!

Rebecca Minkoff Regan With A-Line Printed Skirts and Black Blouson Tanks For The Office

When I'm not sure what to wear with a printed piece, I'll pick out a colour from the print itself and wear that with it. That's why I wore black tanks with both of these a-line printed skirts. Add a blazer and a cute bag like the Rebecca Minkoff Regan and it's easy business casual office wear.

What I wore:

Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Can't believe it's taken me so long to wear this necklace and skirt together! They are such a good combination. With the black in the print and the black top and jacket, the yellow necklace was a fun way to continue the cheerfulness of the skirt into the rest of my outfit.

I picked the navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag to wear with this as I've worn this skirt with navy before. I figured I'd try the same colour combination but with my accessory instead of a navy top. I really liked this outfit, perfect for a day at the office.

It was a busy day though! I usually try get a quick mirror outfit pic to share on my Insta stories like here (in the bathroom at work, classy!) but I didn't get an opportunity on this day. I snapped one on the way home instead.

Why I wore it:

I frequently wear this silk skirt with black, it lets the lovely autumnal colours of the leaf print stand out. I thought the cream blazer would be nice with it, with the taupe in the print, but I didn't like the combination as much as I thought I would.

I did like the little blue necklace I added though! It was a gift from my lovely friend, and with the navy bag I thought I should introduce something else navy into my outfit other than my blue nail polish. Usually I'd go for a longer necklace with a plain tank like this, but I liked the shorter one with this.

This day wasn't as busy as the previous day above. It was a little bit of a stressful day with a complex problem at work that required a morning Starbucks run, but we had a big Easter afternoon tea with LOTS of hot cross buns and some chocolate to kick of the Easter long weekend so it turned into a great day. Chocolate is always a mood booster!

How You Can Wear It:

If you're in a business casual environment, a knee length a-line skirt is a great option. You can get so many fun prints too, it's a nice way to add a little colour to your work wardrobe. You can keep things simple (and make getting dressed for work faster!) by picking a colour out of the print and wearing a coordinating top. In both these cases, there was some black in the prints, so a nice neutral black tank was a great option with both skirts.
