3 Ways To Wear a Ribbon Scarf (and a Giveaway!)

A special giveaway today! You know I love my scarves so I was very happy when Liberty contacted me to offer me one of her ribbon scarves. I picked the pink one but all are beautiful! Despite my large scarf collection, I've never tried a ribbon scarf before, and I really liked this one.

With help from Shelbee and Liberty, I'm sharing 3 ways you can wear a ribbon scarf, plus how you can win one of your own! There are 3 to giveaway, one for each blog!

BlouseJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
SkirtAsos tailored tab front pencil skirt in grey
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I wore this back in September and a longer sleeved top with a scarf and tights may have been a bit overkill for spring (especially with the higher than average temperatures in Brisbane!) but it was my first day back at work after being sick and I wanted to be cosy and warm.

With the neutral black henley top, ballet flats and grey pencil skirt, I used my accessories to add a little colour. This magenta Rebecca Minkoff quilted Edie bag goes so well with the different shades of pink in the ribbon scarf. The scarf kept me cosy and made me smile through the day with the bright colour.

Exactly what you need when starting to feel better - something comfortable to wear and some colourful accessories to make you smile!


Last worn: black henley, grey pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Other ways to wearblack henley and a-line skirt, grey pencil skirt with navy and purple, black ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag and sundress.

Perfect for pregnancyblack henley in second trimester, black ballet flats in third trimester.

I like how Shelbee matched the autumnal colours in her ribbon scarf with her outfit, the earrings are the perfect match and the animal print shirt compliments the scarf so well. Such a great neutral outfit! See more of Shelbee's outfit on her blog.




Liberty is wearing the beautiful neutral brown ribbon scarf with the cutest teal dress! As it's autumn for her she's layered up a little to keep cosy. The neutral scarf is a perfect accompaniment with the bold teal dress, and works well with the black pieces in her outfit too. Read more about her outfit on Liberty's blog.

Weekday Wear Linkup: Textured Jackets, Grey Tees, Pencil Skirts and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Crossbody Bag

Taking advantage of the warmer spring weather in Brisbane and just wearing some light layers to the office. I wore two of my textured jackets with basic grey tees and black pencil skirts and added some colourful scarves for a brighter Weekday Wear Linkup! Even the backdrops are colourful, I stopped by the Brisbane Arcade Spring flower show to get some pretty Instagram pics!

What I wore:

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I couldn't resist wearing all the pink accessories! This magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag really pops against a plain grey tee and black pencil skirt outfit, and I continued the pink theme on with the tassel earrings and the striped scarf. I like how the earrings matched the tassels on the scarf, and the magenta stripes compliment the magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag nicely.

With all the colour and the classic tweed textured jacket, I felt this outfit was dressed up enough for a quiet day at work with few face-to-face meetings. Sometimes I have more virtual meetings than face-to-face ones, especially with the new project I'm on.

SkirtJeanswest zip detail ponte pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

Another textured jacket - this jacquard one has a metallic thread running though it so it feels a little more 'dressy' option and worked perfectly to make the slouchy and comfy grey tunic and pencil skirt outfit more suitable for a day in the office.

The threading on the jacket looks like stripes, and since I'd had fun lately wearing striped scarves with striped maxi skirts, I thought I'd give the striped scarf and striped jacket combination a try. I really liked this outfit, even if the jacket was a little bit too warm to wear during the day when my friend and I went out for a walk at lunchtime to admire the spring blooms at the Brisbane Arcade. Just like the first outfit, I liked all the pink in this outfit too, even if the scarf and bag are different shades of pink.


Last worn: jacquard jacket, striped scarf, black pencil skirt, silver ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag (above). First time I've shared the tunic on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

Textured Jackets Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A classic grey tee is a wardrobe staple for stay at home mum life, but can be dressed up for the office if you have a casual environment. A fun striped scarf can hide the casual nature of the tee, especially when paired with a formal textured jacket.

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.

Other ways to wearcamel trench coat and mustard dress, star print scarf and warp dress, ombre knit and leopard print jeans, black pencil skirt and printed tank in summer, silver ballet flats and jeans, Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag and shorts.

JumperJeanswest 'Serena' ombre knit
Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans
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!


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.

Perfect for pregnancyskull scarf in third trimester, ombre knit at 40 weeks, Acne pistol boots in third trimester.




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!

SkirtJeanswest black ponte pencil skirt

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!

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.

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.


Last worn: leather jacket, necklace, black maxi skirt, ankle boots, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere. First time I've worn the blouse on the blog.

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.

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.
