Printed Dresses for Church In Cooler Weather

While we visited Scotland in the spring time, the weather was more like a Brisbane winter! I did pack some pretty dresses for those occasions when I wanted to feel a little more pulled-together but had to layer them up a little bit more to make the temperatures bearable. Covering my legs was a must - I packed lots of tights and leggings! These dress outfits were perfect for attending church.

What I wore:

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
Earrings: gold pendant chandelier earrings
DressJeanswest Aztec print dress
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I did actually have my trench coat over this dress but I took it off for the photos. Thankfully we took these around lunch time when the weather was a bit warmer, but I was still grateful to pop my coat back on after snapping a few shots!

This pretty Ikat print dress is a firm favourite, and being a sheer polyester with a polyester slip underneath it meant extra layers to keep me cosy! I paired it with my fleece lined tights and ankle boots, as well as my purple scarf and big trench coat.

We'd spent the morning at another church so I'd picked this pretty dress to wear. On our way to lunch, we passed this church yard and the gate was open after a recent service. Much to to the surprise of hubby and the boys, I pulled the car over and we ran in for a few quick photos. The church is Liberton Kirk, built in 1815 so over 200 years old! It looks absolutely stunning with the red doors and the greenery growing all over it. So pleased to be able to get some photos there!

30 Ways To Wear A Printed Dress: Zara Shift Dress







What I wore:

NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger with leggings underneath
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

It was a warmer day when I wore this outfit - so I went without a jacket. I picked leggings to keep my legs covered, and the long sleeves on this dress kept my arms covered up from the wind too. It's not just cold in Scotland, it's so windy! Thankfully there wasn't too much wind on this day.

Had to pose under a cherry blossom tree for a photo with my floral dress. #bloggerlife This mustard dress I picked up from Zaful after seeing it on Ruth's blog has gotten more wear than I expected - with the ruffles it's nice for making me feel a bit more dressed up.

Paired with Converse and my trusty Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag, it was an easy outfit for church and then an afternoon BBQ.

How You Can Wear It:

You don't need to give up your dresses when the weather cools! Try leggings, or fleece lined tights, scarves and ankle boots for a little extra warmth on a cold day.

Maxi Dresses With Denim Jackets, Ankle Boots and Cross Body Bags

I love dresses and ankle boots in autumn! And although it's a lot cooler in Brisbane with winter just a few days away, (and I'm freezing away in Scotland!) a light denim jacket was all that was needed on the warmer early autumn days when I wore these outfits.

What I wore:

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

I wore this pretty maxi dress out to brunch with some other Brisbane style Instagrammers. When I first tried on this dress in Jeanswest back in Spring last year I was wearing ankle boots and I loved how it looked - so I am glad with the cooler weather I got to give this combination a wear!

We all caught up for a wonderful brunch at Little and Oliver's on the Bayside and then some of us went and took a few extra photos afterwards. Big thanks to K for taking this shot for me!

I rarely get a chance to wear this vintage Chanel bag so I decided to wear it out since I was kid-free for a rare change! It was a nice accessory with the colourful printed dress.

Why I wore it:

Repeated the outfit formula from above again with different pieces. You can't really see in the pics but I picked my tan ankle boots to go under this tie dye maxi dress with the peony pink Rebecca Minkoff Darren cross body bag and the same trusty denim jacket.

Couldn't resist being a little matchy-matchy with the blush necklace to match the blush pink bag! Wore this out to church on a rather busy day. The dress was a throw on and go easy outfit.

Belted Blue Dresses With Purple Bags

Belting some of my favourite blue dresses with cardigans for two very different outfits - one I wore to work and one I wore casually.

What I wore:

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

awayfromblue Instagram | monochrome blue belted cardigan dress outfit with purple balenciaga work bag autumn office wear

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
DressFrench Connection blue Paisley print dress
BeltRebecca Minkoff Liv double wrap velvet belt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very busy day! I had to pop into the office for an important meeting in the morning and then I worked from home in the afternoon so I could be there for a tradie arriving and pick my son up from daycare early to take him to an appointment. Lots of travelling around!

As it was a cooler morning and our meeting rooms are always terribly cold I decided to belt this cardigan as I knew I'd have it on most of the day. It's not the first time I've worn this velvet belt with this dress, it's a combination I really like! I thought the black belt and ballet flats were good accessories with the monochromatic blue outfit or cardigan and dress together. The big purple Balenciaga work bag was needed to cart everything around and I really like the touch of colour it adds to the blue too.

Balenciaga Bags vs Rebecca Minkoff Bags







What I wore:

Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
Dress: Kmart strappy tiered sundress in watercolour blue and blush print
ShoesPurple high top Converse look-a-likes
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I didn't like this outfit as much as the one above, although it follows a similar outfit formula with the belted cardigan, blue dress and purple bag. I had the day off, spending some time with my mum and so I'd planned this outfit out in my head thinking it would work nicely. The belt on the cardigan sat a little lower than the point I wanted to belt the dress though, which made me think it looked a little off. With no time to change I decided to wear it anyway, but I did think a few times during the day that I should have picked a different cardigan or tried the cardigan untied!

While the shades of purple on the mini MAB tote bag and the high top shoes don't match exactly I thought they were good compliments with the blush and blue printed dress. The mini MAB tote bag is one I've worn with the dress in the past, I really like the combination.


Last worn: grey belted cardigan, beaded necklacetiered sundress, purple high-tops, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Cardigans Under $50 Perfect For Belting:





How You Can Wear It:

It's simple to add a cardigan to a dress to make it a little warmer for cooler temperatures. You can change up your look slightly by belting the cardigan over the dress too, for a different way to wear it. You can add a belt over your favourite cardigan or you can pick a cardigan that has an in-built tie.

Floral Swing Dresses and Autumn Layers With Red Rebecca Minkoff Micro Avery Bag

It's always so nice when cooler weather arrives in Brisbane and I can start to layer. Sometimes in autumn you need an extra layer when wearing a dress, and I've worn two floral dresses below slightly layered for the colder mornings.

What I wore:

Zaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger with leggings in autumn swing dress style | awayfromblue

autumn colours: mustard dress with  Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | Zaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger with leggings red bag SAHM mum style
Earrings: Lovisa mini mustard tassel earrings
Necklace: For King & Country Priceless Australian coin and crest necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger with leggings underneath
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This dress is one that I love but so rarely wear! The statement sleeves look so pretty but they don't make mum life easy as they frequently get in the way. Decided to wear this out to church in the morning, after everyone had breakfast as I didn't feel like making porridge making and attempting to clean up the breakfast bowls after with the long bell sleeves! 😂

I had considered ankle boots with this but decided on ballet flats instead - the black flats go nicely with the black leggings and I felt quite cosy on a cold morning. As well as matching the shoes and leggings together, I picked my mustard tassel earrings to match the dress. The bag was a bit of a different choice - the floral print is more burgundy - but I really liked the autumnal combination of mustard and cherry red together.


Last worn: mustard tassel earrings, mustard floral swing dress, coin necklace, black leggings, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery tote bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Another floral swing dress! Again, I stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff micro Avery bag, although this time it perfectly matched the floral print on the dress. It's not the first time I've worn this dress with a denim jacket, it's a nice layer for autumn and it turned into such a nice day I took the jacket off in the middle of it.

This was a pretty outfit for the busy day. The grandparents watched the boys for a little bit while I popped to the doctors for an uncomfortable but necessary appointment (get your pap smear regularly!).

Wile the bag matched the floral print, the blush necklace was a last minute addition. Although I wasn't sure about the pink and red together, I really liked the rose gold on the necklace matching the gold hardware on the micro Avery bag. Ended up loving the combination!

How You Can Wear It:

A floral swing dress isn't just for spring or summer! You can make them work into autumn too with a few extra layers for cooler mornings - a denim jacket and ankle boots, or a cosy pair of leggings.

Printed Maxi Dresses and Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag

You will know from even a small amount of time reading my blog that I love my outfit formulas! I like to take an outfit I enjoyed and wear something similar again later, just changing a thing or two. In these outfits I'm wearing two printed maxi dresses and accessorising with my fun purple Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag. By changing the other accessories and adding another layer, the outfits look quite different and disguise my lazy outfit formula repetition 😉

What I wore:

Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
Bracelets: the usual plus pearl and rose gold bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for baby boy's third birthday party last month. It's crazy thinking my baby boy is 3 years old! It doesn't seem like that long ago I was pregnant with him! The years really go by so quickly.

We had a fun party at home with all his favourite people around - as I'd done all of the party prep the day before I didn't bother wearing shoes, no need to go outside! I did add the purple mini MAB tote bag, because I liked how well it worked with the print on the dress and I needed a place to put my phone and camera when I wasn't using them to record various parts of the party.

Kid's birthday party meant kid friendly necklace, so I pulled this Nibbly Bits one out again, a firm favourite while I was breastfeeding. I was hoping it might distract from the statement earrings but they were tugged on by little hands a few times before I diverted attention with the necklace!

Why I wore it:

Another maxi dress and purple mini MAB outfit! A different colour scheme this time, still with the pink and purple but I added some blue too with the printed maxi dress and denim jacket. I needed the denim jacket for a cooler morning. The blush necklace goes so nicely with purple and blue, was the perfect accessory.

Wore this to go watch the Church Online service at my friends house. It was good to catch up, with life getting in the way and the boys having the sniffles we hadn't seen her for a few weeks! It was the first time showing off my new hair cut to everyone too.

The day ended up warming up quite a lot and I'd gotten rid of the jacket when I ran a couple of quick errands before lunch.

Grey Tees, Denim Shorts and Kimonos: Easy Mum Style

Sometimes the simplest outfits are the best! I love a good grey tee, and they are so nice with denim shorts. Throw on a printed kimono to feel a little more pulled together, and accessorise with a bright neon bag. Easy and perfect for a day with the kids!

What I wore:

rebecca minkoff neon pink mini MAC bag with denim shorts | awayfromtheblue

Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch C/O JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

I needed a simple outfit for a stressful Monday so I fell back on my much loved outfit formula. To accessorise I just decided to pick everything pink as there is some pink in the floral print of the kimono. even though everything was a different shade of pink, I think it all worked well together. I love the way this neon pink mini MAC bag pops with the grey tee and the navy kimono, it really shines against neutrals. It's such a frequent accessory choice when I wear this kimono!

It was a stressful start to the morning as we had an appointment to keep but my phone had died the day before so I was desperately hunting for a replacement phone around the appointment time. The kids behaved so well as I dragged them round store after store. I'd picked out a possible new phone for Christmas but decided against it, so I knew the model I wanted, but it wasn't as widely available as it was in December! Thankfully I tracked it down, at the sixth store we went to. Yes, 6. My boys were so patient, but it was a stressful morning for us all!

BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Looking a little flat here - I was starting to feel unwell and lose my voice, but I'd pre-booked a fun morning and I had to pick up a few last minute birthday party things for baby boy's birthday party the next day, so I pushed through.

Our morning started with messy play - I'd picked all these things to wear as they could be easily washed (as advised when I booked the tickets). I did not expect to have to wash the grey tee quite so quickly though, after I took pics there was an incident with a breakfast bowl and I had to quickly take this off, stuff it in the washing machine and find another grey tee to replace it. Luckily I have a few! 😂

Thankfully at the actual messy play I managed to keep my clothes clean - although the boys loved getting dirty and my legs were covered in green 'slime' at the end of it. Lots of fun! Complete change of clothes for them and a bit of a clean with baby wipes and we were ready to run around the shops and pick up all the last minute party things.

Weekday Wear Linkup! Striped Tanks Worn 2 Ways: In The Office, Casually

A little bit of print mixing for this week's Weekday Wear Linkup! Showing you two different ways to wear striped tanks, in the office and casually, and doing a little print mixing by having spotty accessories with the stripes in each outfit too!

What I wore:

olive jeans adn Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava white leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

Starting to realise you can't see my earrings with my new shorter haircut! 😂 I was so thrilled to wear jeans for once! I wore these a couple weeks ago, excited about the weather cooling down. Green is one of the colours I find tricky to wear and as a result these olive jeans are frequently worn with black - this striped tank seemed like an obvious choice. Added the white kimono as I wasn't sure which of my printed ones would look best with this and wanted to keep it simple!

Couldn't resist adding a little bit of leopard print to this outfit with the printed shoes too - I felt they worked nicely with the striped tank as they are the same colour scheme.

Hubby and I had an appointment to attend that unfortunately was in the middle of the day. We decided to make the most of it and take the day off. It was nice to have some quiet time at home to get caught up with a few must do tasks which are easier without the boys around!


Last worn: gold earringscrochet kimono, turquoise tassel necklace, black striped tank, olive jeans, leopard print flats, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan.

SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I felt this outfit was lacking a little something - this cute blue polka dot scarf that I got as a Christmas present from my mum was the perfect finishing piece to add to the striped tank and pencil skirt and blazer outfit. It was a nice bit of print mixing and extra touch of colour with the grey.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag added a little more colour too! I like how the magenta pops with the grey.

Striped Tanks Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A striped tank is a great wardrobe basic that you can easily dress up or down. Stripes are so fun to print mix with too! Why not try introducing a small accessory with a different print for a subtle take on pattern mixing in your outfit.
