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:

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.

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!


Last worn: black leather jacket, navy tassel earrings, skull scarf, ombre knit (above), red skinny jeans, Acne pistol boots, Rebecca Minkoff small love bag.

Other ways to wearblack leather jacket at Disneyland, skull scarf and striped coatigan, ombre knit and purple jeans, red skinny jeans and printed tank, Acne pistol boots and maxi dress, Rebecca Minkoff small love bag and navy blouse.

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.

Jeanswest Jewel Toned Blouses In The Office & Weekday Wear Linkup

For today's weekday wear linkup I'm sharing two pretty jewel toned blouses I wore to work with classic black pencil skirts. I wear my pencil skirts year-round to the office, they just need a little extra layering in winter!

What I wore:

Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff medium MAB tote in moon navy

Why I wore it:

More fun photos from my friend K at the Myer Centre cloud 9 area. When I saw that this pink and yellow wall matched my pink and yellow scarf it was an obvious backdrop for taking photos!

I like the sapphire blue of this studded blouse, it's such a nice colour and it pairs nicely with black. I think navy and black is a stunning combo. With the navy Rebecca Minkoff MAB tote too though the outfit felt a little flat - the pink and yellow Alexander McQueen skull scarf was the perfect accessory for a little extra colour.

These black ankle boots have been getting a workout too after my tan ones broke!

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Medium MAB Tote

JacketJeanswest Cassandra jacquard jacket
TopJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This berry blouse is such a great colour to wear! It's shiny fabric makes it seem more pink or more ruby toned in different lights. I was wondering what bag I could wear with it when I realised it looked pretty similar to the shade of this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag! You know I love a bit of matchy-matchy, and while the shades don't match exactly this combination made me so happy.

This lovely metallic boucle jacket seemed like a good combo with the silky texture of the blouse, and the round neckline let the little ruffled collar of my blouse standout. I also appreciated the zippers on the sleeves of this jacket. The blouse has puffy statement sleeves and it wasn't fitting under a plain black blazer, but unzipping the sleeves on this slightly let me wear the blouse under with ease!


Last worn: jacquard jacket, berry blouse, black pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearjacquard jacket and dress, berry blouse and skirt, black pencil skirt and tee, black ballet flats and a-line skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and shorts.

Jewel Toned Blouses Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A jewel toned blouse in a modest cut is great for the office. Long sleeves mean your arms are protected from the freezing aircon, and the colours are a nice pop with a classic black pencil skirt. With the plain colourful backdrop of the blouse you can add a fun printed jacket or a scarf for a little extra interest too.

Denim Jacket And Striped Maxi Skirts With Grey Tees and Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

I blame jet lag after returning home to Brisbane for these two outfits looking incredibly similar! 😂 You know I love my outfit formulas - denim jacket, a grey tee and a striped maxi skirt was such an easy option. I do try to make my outfits look a little different when I repeat something again a few days later, but in my jet lagged haze and rush to get out the door I ended up grabbing the same denim jacket both times instead of a different one each time. Oh well! At least the necklaces, skirts and shades of grey in the tees are different!

What I wore:

NecklaceJeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a day with the boys, trying to get back into our usual routines after returning from Europe! We went to the playground and the library and did a little bit of grocery shopping. I needed a nice easy outfit, so a simple grey tee and striped maxi skirt seemed the best fuss-free way to dress. The splits up the side of this maxi skirt mean it doesn't get worn much in winter, but when I wore this back at the start of the month it was a milder day. It felt really warm compared to the cold temps we'd experienced on the other side of the world too! 😂

This Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag was overdue a wear - I'd considered taking it overseas with me so that I could wear it to the wedding, but I went with the little silver mini MAC in the end. I was glad I'd taken the mini MAC, but still wanted to wear this camera bag when I got home.


Last worn: grey tee, tassel necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag. First time I've worn the denim jacket as it's a recent purchase.

Skirt: Target black and white striped maxi skirt

BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Another day with the kids, another easy outfit, with a different grey tee and striped maxi skirt, but again the same outfit formula, with the same denim jacket, shoes and Rebecca Minkoff bag. I actually ended up taking the denim jacket off in the morning - it was such a nice day and we spent it at a park in the bayside, soaking up the sun.

This black striped maxi skirt is one that hasn't been worn in a while. A pregnancy purchase when I was pregnant with my eldest boy, it's a piece I've already hit 30 wears on. When I'm thinking of things to wear I usually pass over this skirt for another one that hasn't hit 30 wears yet, but on this day I wanted to go back to an old favourite!

Striped Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A striped maxi skirt is an easy wardrobe staple for stay at home mum days, and can be paired with the ever classic grey tee so you don't have to worry about prints clashing. For cooler days, you can add a denim jacket on top.

Black Maxi Skirt Worn 2 Ways In Winter & Weekday Wear Linkup

I packed light for our Europe trip, trying to take things I knew I'd wear. A maxi skirt is a staple for me even in winter in Australia so I thought it would work well in Scottish spring - around 10-12 degrees Celsius, so a Brisbane winter!

This black maxi skirt is a breeze to travel with, and I kept it rolled up in my hand luggage as my spare change of clothes just in case! I wore it a few times on our travels, and today I'm sharing two of those ways I wore it.

What I wore:

Maxi skirt in winter with leather jacket berry blouse and ankle boots | away from blue

awayfromblue Instagram black leather jacket maxi skirt berry blouse in scotland
JacketJeanswest black leather moto jacket
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
TopJeanswest Frankie soft blouse in berry (new purchase)
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this outfit to be a little more dressed up, we weren't the only ones flying to Scotland for the wedding so we all headed to the airport to pickup someone, who sadly arrived without their luggage! A quick detour to some nearby shops later for the essentials to tide them over until their luggage arrived the next day and then we all went for diner. It was a day of a lot of excitement and good food. And I was thrilled to get an opportunity to snap a photo overlooking Edinburgh town - although I am completely blocking the view of the castle! 😂 You can see Calton hill and Arthur Seat just to the side of me.

This berry toned blouse was a last minute addition to my suitcase when it arrived just before we left. With a tank underneath, leggings and ankle boots under my maxi skirt and a leather jacket, I felt this was cosy enough for the day.

You can see more on my thoughts about what I packed and what I actually wore in my video below.

What I Packed: Capsule Wardrobe For My Europe Trip




Sharing what I brought with me and how much everything was worn - the winning pieces and pieces I didn't really wear!




What I wore:

maxi skirt in winter with leather jacket ankle boots purple scarf | away from blue

awayfromtheblue instagram | wrap top, maxi skirt scarf leather jacket ankle boots and mini MAc bag layered up for winter
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs mauve square scarf
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another slightly dressier occasion meant pulling out my maxi skirt again. We drove into the Scottish borders for lunch to an adorable little town, that sadly like most little towns hundreds of years old was not designed to have cars driving through it! It was a bit of a hair-raising experience for someone like me who isn't a fan of driving most of the time and hates parking, navigating a hire car down these little single lane roads with cars and houses either side. I was glad I'd snapped this pic before we left, I was not looking as composed when we did find a place to park in the end! 😂

Thankfully lunch was wonderful and the location beautiful - we were happy to sit and eat and watch the rain fall, it started to dry up before we left.

Again I layered this maxi skirt up for the cooler weather, with my blue wrap top, purple scarf, cosy leather jacket and hiding some tights underneath the skirt along with the ankle boots.

Other ways to wearblack leather jacket and jeans, blue wrap and bright pants, purple scarf and printed dress, black maxi skirt in summer, ankle boots and printed dressRebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC and green jeans.

Perfect for pregnancyankle boots in second trimesterRebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC in third trimester.


Black Maxi Skirts Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt can work just as well in winter as it does in summer! Instead of light floaty layers, think cosy heavier layers like scarves, boots, leather jackets, and even tights of leggings underneath the skirt! Works well when there's no snow around, and the ankle boots keep your feet dry and warm if it rains.

What I Wore To Stay In A Scottish Castle: Melville Castle Hotel

We attended a wedding while we were in Scotland, in the beautiful Melville castle. Some of the castle has been turned into a hotel, so we decided to splurge a little for our 10 year wedding anniversary and stay overnight there. I highly recommend it!

What I wore:

purple maxi dress coblat louis vuitton scarf as a shawl silver mini mac bag wedding guest outfit melville castle | awayfromblue

awayfromblue Instagram | melville castle hotel wedding guest maxi dress outfit spring
ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Earrings: Ana Luisa 'Olivia' tassel earrings in pink
DressJeanswest Gigi printed maxi dress in shorter length (C/O)
Shoes: NineWest "Quicken" wedges in natural
Bracelets: the usual plus vintage silver charm bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

This is what I wore for the wedding. It is my usual wedding guest outfit, a pretty maxi dress and a comfortable pair of wedges. However I also had a tank layered underneath and full length leggings! 😂 It was only 10 degrees Celsius / 50 Fahrenheit so winter temps for this Aussie!

The Louis Vuitton shawl is wool blend so I tied it in the back to keep it on my shoulders and keep me warm. The venue was perfectly heated though, and aside from feeling a little cold when we stepped out into the stunning gardens to take photos, I didn't miss not having a jacket.

I picked the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC as my bag for the night - while the boys were invited, I didn't carry anything for them as our room was so close by. The bride and groom also made sure the boys were catered for as well, with a giant bag full of multiple activities and toy cars and lollies waiting for each of them when we sat down for dinner. Such a sweet surprise. The ladies bathroom had a hamper full of all the little essentials 'just in case' from the bride too - hair spray, hair ties, bandaids, mints, perfume...etc! So thoughtful! It was an amazing wedding, beautiful venue and such a cute couple!




Last worn: Louis Vuitton shawl, blush tassel earrings, printed halterneck maxi dress, nude wedges, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

Other ways to wearLouis Vuitton shawl for international flight, printed halterneck maxi dress and flats, nude wedges and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and green pants.

What's In My Bag & Review: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC











What I wore:

zaful mustarf floral ruffle hem dress with camel trench coat fleece lined tights | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | melville castle hotel entrance mustard floral dress trench coat for spring
Jacket: Barkins beige trench coat 
NecklaceTiffany diamonds by the yard necklace
DressZaful floral print ruffle hem dress in ginger
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

The morning after the wedding (as another indication of how thoughtful the bride and groom were) we were all invited to celebrate with them in a post-wedding breakfast, going over the best parts of the day before and enjoying some yummy food. I wanted to be a little dressed up for this, so I wore my mustard floral print ruffle dress. Perfect for easy post-wedding dressing (hubby took the boys to bed early as I partied on until the end!) and the long sleeves helped keep me cosy, especially with the camel trench coat over the top.

I mentioned to hubby I wish I'd had more time at the castle - there were so many great spots for photos! I figured this spot from out the front before we hopped into the car and went to church was the easiest though, it's nice to be able to show you the other side of the castle.

I packed lightly for our castle stay, leaving everything else at our main accommodation, so I wore the same earrings and bag as the night before (although we also had the baby bag with us this time).


Last worn: camel trench, statement earrings (above), Tiffany necklace, mustard floral dress, ankle boots, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearcamel trench in the office, mustard floral dress in summer, ankle boots and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancycamel trench in first trimester, ankle boots in second trimester, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC in second trimester.





Printed Dresses Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A printed dress is such an easy outfit, you can glam it up with a pair of wedges or dress it down with ankle boots and a trench coat. A wonderful outfit choice for a weekend away in a Scottish castle!

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:

autumn olive and yellow print mixing stripes and leopard print outfit with kimono | awayfromblue

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

awayfromblue Instagram | print mixing outfit striped tank olive jeans leopard flats kimono and mustard yellow micro regan bag

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.

Other ways to wear: crochet kimono and shortsblack striped tank and maxi skirt, olive jeans and printed scarf, leopard print flats and little black dress, Rebecca Minkoff micro Regan and maxi dress.

TankJeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
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.
