2 Ways To Wear Kmart Amber Tiered Midi Dress | Weekday Wear Link Up

Another new purchase from Kmart! This dress was a delayed impulse buy. I'd spotted it on the way out of Kmart with my sister after some birthday present shopping. I kept thinking about it so next time I put in a Kmart order with some things for the boys I added this dress too, as well as a marigold top I've already shared. For the start of spring it works so well with denim jackets!

What I wore:

Kmart amber tiered midi dress for spring with denim jacket and printed scarf nylon backpack | away from blue

amber dress with Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue | awayfromtheblue

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber (new purchase)
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

I knew I wanted to wear this scarf with the dress the first time I wore it, the blue heart print works so well with the amber of the dress. It turned into such a warm day and I didn't need both the denim jacket and scarf after school drop off, but since I'd forgotten mozzie repellent for our little walk around our fave trail I decided to keep the jacket on and keep my arms safe from bites! Did end up taking off both the denim jacket and scarf for school pickup though.

As we spent most of the day out on the trail I just used the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack as my bag all day. It's a great bag for holding water bottles and snacks for out on the trail. It popped beautifully with the bright blue against the orange dress too.

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
Necklace: Jeanswest Taryn turquoise tassel bead necklace
DressKmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, despite the squinting from the sun 😂 Wore this for Father's Day as I was so eager to wear this dress again quite quickly! Stuck with the denim jacket topper, although picked a darker blue one this time, and I really liked this combination. As it was a warmer day I went with the tassel necklace instead of a scarf, and as there were no extra long walks required I picked Converse instead of my walking shoes. I loved the way Converse looks with this dress, I need to wear it again with Converse in the future!

Again I went with a blue bag with this, my little sky grey Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC the boys got me for Mother's Day. Did consider going matchy-matchy with a turquoise bag to match the tassel necklace, but I really liked this greyish blue against the orange dress.


How You Can Wear It:

A bright tiered midi dress is perfect for spring, especially in orange! It's easily layered with a denim jacket - and blue bags are a great accessory choice!

Weekday Wear Link Up: Grey Tees and Plain Maxi Skirts With Mini MAC Bag

Enjoying the spring like weather right at the end of winter last month I wore some simple maxi skirt and tee outfits with a couple of my grey tees and my blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

awayfromblue ochre amber maxi skirt with grey tee and blue mini mac bag spring style

awayfromtheblue rebecca minkoff sky grey blue mini mac bag with ochre amber maxi skirt



Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a beautifully sunny public holiday. Since the Ekka (our Queensland state show) was cancelled they moved the Wednesday public holiday to Friday instead to give everyone a long weekend. The weather was so nice we headed out with the kids around our favourite trail. I wasn't expecting it to be quite so busy though! It's usually so quiet we can go the entire time without seeing more than 2 people, but I guess with the public holiday everyone wanted to enjoy the spot. Thankfully the outdoors is a great place to keep our distance, and the kids showed their Dad some of their "hidden" paths off the trail we have taken before where we didn't see anyone for a while.

Since it was such a warm day I just wore a simple outfit, I liked the last time I wore a grey tee with this ochre maxi skirt, and this darker grey tee was even better than the last one I tried. Since hubby was there to carry the baby bag I just wore my Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC for keeping my essentials with me - I often use the camera on my phone to take pics as we walk around here. I thought the blue was nice with the ochre skirt.






What I wore:

awayfromblue black maxi skirt grey tee converse with pink striped scarf and blue mini mac bag

awayfromtheblue black maxi skirt with blue rebecca minkoff mini mac bag



Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl zesty stripe tassel scarf in pink
Tee: Jeanswest 'Lucy' colour block tee in grey marle/rosebud
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This day was even warmer than the one above, although it was pretty windy too! I decided to add this fun pink striped scarf to my outfit, as the grey tee and the black maxi skirt were a little plain together. Even though the grey tee has a contrasting pink panel on the back it looked a little monochrome from the front. I thought the scarf complimented the pink on the tee nicely, even if it did keep blowing around a bit when I tried to get photos!

Again I wore my little blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, it goes well with pink and grey.

This was a nice outfit for a busy day with the school run, working from home and an appointment for my son in the afternoon.


How You Can Wear It:

A simple grey tee and maxi skirt outfit is a great option to keep you cool on a warm day. You can keep it monochromatic like I have in the second outfit and add some colour with accessories, or let the skirt be the pop of colour like I have in the first outfit with the ochre skirt.

30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga City Bag Sorbet Pink & Weekday Wear Link Up

Today's Weekday Wear Post is another from the 30 wears series, showing you 30 ways I've worn this sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag.

Each month I search through my blog archives to find something I've worn 30 ways or more over the years I've owned it, to put this post together and give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can wear something similar in your own wardrobe. The Weekday Wear Linkup is at the end of the post for you to link up your latest style post!


30 Ways to Wear: Balenciaga Sorbet Pink City Bag


30 ways to wear balenciaga sorbet pink city bag outfit ideas | Away From Blue Blog


Despite being a very vibrant pink, this bag is so versatile and goes with a lot of my wardrobe. I really like blue and pink together, and have a lot of blue in my wardrobe, so you can see why this bag has fit in so well!

Cost Per Wear


I ordered this bag from the Balenciaga London boutique back in 2010, at over 10 years old it's held up really well! Definitely showing its age more now, but still a bag I adore and I like the broken in slouch it has. It's been worn over 60 times in those 10 years so it's held up well! Sometimes I wore the bag in two outfits on those posts that I found in my blog search, but those are harder to count without going through every pic so we will say 60 wears. 

Unfortunately the only record I have of the sale is in pounds, as I ordered from the UK store and I don't remember the exchange rate. It was £799.15, including the £80(!!!) shipping. That works out at £13.32 a wear so far. Still pretty high but for a splurge-worthy bag like this I see myself using for a long time still I know I'll get the cost per wear down much further.



30 Ways To Wear: Video Style






Pink Balenciaga City Bag With A Little Black Dress


4 ways to wear little black dresses with pink balenciaga sorbet city bag  awayfromblue


Probably the simplest way to wear a pink bag - against a black outfit! I have a few little black dresses (a couple which were my go-tos during my pregnancies too) so it's no surprise I've worn this pink bag with a black dress so often.


Pink Bag As A Pop Of Colour


4 ways to wear Balenciaga city bag as a pop of colour with outfit awayfromblue


Of course it's not just black that this pink bag pops with! It goes really nicely with other neutrals like grey or white, and it's so simple to add it to an outfit as a bright pop of colour. It stands out so well on it's own it is a great pop of colour.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag Matching Other Pink Pieces In An Outfit


5 ways to wear pink balenciaga city bag sorbet 2010 with matching pieces in outfit away from blue


Matchy-matchy is one of my favourite ways to wear a bright bag though and I find a lot of pink things in my outfit go with this bag, even if the shades are different. Something like the Balenciaga studded sandals which were a lucky sale find on a Melbourne trip and match the bag exactly, or a pink belt, necklace, scarf, even pink in the print of a top or a more subtle match with pink sunglasses! I really like finding different pieces to match with this bag.


Pink Bag With Purple Pieces In An Outfit


3 pink and purple accessory outfit ideas away from blue blog


There are some colour combinations I consistently wear with this pink Balenciaga city bag. I think pink and purple go so well together and while I have worn this pink bag with the purple leopard print scarf a few times I think it goes nicely with other shades of purple like the cardigan in the middle.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag With Blue Outfits


5 ways to wear Balenciaga city bag in sorbet pink RH with blue outfits different shades awayfromtheblue


This is easily one of my most worn colour combinations with this bag, and I definitely had an overabundance of blue outfits with this pink bag to chose from for this post when I searched through my blog archives! It just compliments it so well, the sorbet pink goes with any shade of blue from navy to a lighter blue, and it works with prints, tops, skirts, dresses...


Pink Bag In Office Outfits


4 outfit ideas with balenciaga pink sorbet city bag in the office awayfromtheblue


The Balenciaga city is a very relaxed style of bag, and a very bold pink! I still think it can work in an office environment though - and back when we still worked in offices, this got a lot of wear. It was nice to have a fun, cheerful and colourful item on my desk to make me smile! And despite the relaxed slouchy style the city bag works well with a pencil skirt or sheath dress.


Pink Balenciaga City Bag In Pregnancy


5 outfit ideas balenciaga city bag in pregnancy all trimesters sorbet pink colour awayfromblue


Having had this sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag over 10 years, I've had it before I had both my boys and so I've been able to wear and enjoy it in my pregnancies with them, so it's fun to look back on. And no matter how big the baby bump gets, a handbag will always fit!



Just for fun, here's a comparison of the first time I wore the bag 10 years ago and the most recent time I've worn it. I love the broken in slouch of this bag!

Yellow and Turquoise With Neutral Skinny Jeans Outfits

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two outfits with similar colour schemes of mustard yellow and turquoise, but two very different resulting outfits. One I needed to layer a little more than the other, as winter draws to an end here in Queensland and we get a mix of warmer and cooler days before spring official starts in September.

What I wore:

turquoise and mustard yellow tee skinny jeans and floral duster kimono outfit | away from the blue

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India turquoise moto bag | away from blue





Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India
 

Why I wore it:

With the suddenly warmer weather I wanted to get one of my kimonos out again! This duster one is great as it has longer sleeves that I appreciated doing the school drop off in the morning when it was a bit cooler. It was really warm in the afternoon though and I was glad it's not too thick a fabric!

I've worn it with yellow before, but it's the first time I've paired this mustard tee with it and I really liked the combination. The turquoise Balenciaga first bag is something I've accessorised this kimono with before though, such a fun way to wear even more colour to the already colourful print.

These Nobody Denim skinny jeans are a firm favourite as they go with everything and with the comfortable stretch in them they were perfect for a day of working from home with the school run and an afternoon specialists appointment.






What I wore:

mustard cardigan with monochrome grey skinny jeans and tee outfit, converse, skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag | awayfromblue

mustard cardigan with turquoise Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram mustard cardigan and teal and turquoise skull scarf and Balenciaga first bag

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
ScarfAlexander McQueen azure wool skull scarf
TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India

Why I wore it:

This was a busy day, with an early appointment for my youngest right after school drop off. I had to drive into the city for it and although I know some work places are back it was still busier than I expected on the drive in.

As it was a bit of a chilly morning I took advantage of needing to layer by adding some colourful pieces to an otherwise monochrome outfit. It's the first time I've worn this grey tee and the grey skinny jeans together but they were a great outfit base for the teal and turquoise Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the mustard cardigan. I liked how the turquoise skulls matched the Balenciaga first bag too.


Last wornmustard cardigan, teal skull scarf, grey v neck tee, grey skinny jeans, Converse (above), Balenciaga turquoise first bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and blue look great together, and turquoise and mustard are a nice example of that. With a bold colour combo you can keep the rest of your outfit neutral like I did in the second outfit with the monochrome grey, or add even more colour with a bright printed piece like the kimono in the first outfit.

Yellow, Aqua and Navy: Dresses and Leather Jackets | Weekday Wear Link Up

Two incredibly similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Link Up! Printed navy dresses, yellow scarves, leather jackets, leggings and Converse with my Rebecca Minkoff aqua mini MAC bag.

What I wore:

navy stripe tee dress layered up for winter leggings converse leather jacket mustard yellow scarf aqua bag | away from blue

navy striped tee dress, leather jacket with Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | mustard scarf, navy stripe tee dress leather jacket and aqua mini mac bag winter colourful accessories

JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in mustard
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress with leggings
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a fun Monday! After the school run I headed out to the local opshops with my youngest boy. Since I'd noticed the big one near us had reopened (it was one of the last to reopen after the virus restrictions) I was eager to go check it out, and a cold Monday sounded like the perfect opportunity. It is the best opshop locally for books, they have a huge range and we spent a lot of time picking our favourites to take home. Hubby and I had an appointment later that day and I was hoping some new books would keep the little one entertained for a bit during that! Of course I picked a few interesting looking ones up for myself too, since my neighbour started a virtual book club over Iso I've gotten back into the habit of reading and I'm always looking for new books to read!

I felt this navy striped tee dress with the black printed leather jacket was a bit dark, the mustard scarf and the aquamarine mini MAC bag were the perfect touches of colour with it to lighten it up! It warmed up much more than I expected and I ended up taking the leather jacket off for most of the day after the school drop off in the morning.


ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Again the same outfit formula with a navy dress, leather jacket, and aqua mini MAC bag and yellow scarf. I loved the colours of this outfit but it felt a little more impractical than the first outfit above. It was a very cold day, so cold that I ended up working from home after the school run with a big fluffy blanket over my legs to keep me warm. I realised when I went to go pick up my son and take him to his appointment in the afternoon that it has just resulted in a very wrinkled dress being covered up all day with a thick blanket! It is a very light dress, just viscose, so it wrinkles a bit more than I'd like sometimes.

I think if I'd have worn this on another day I would have liked it more - it was a fun colour combination, and I really liked all of the pieces together, but it was so cold jeans and a big cosy knit might have been better (and less likely to wrinkle!).



How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and navy go so well together! If you're layering up a navy dress for colder weather with a leather jacket and leggings, why not add a bright yellow scarf for a pop of colour? You can try introduce another bright shade with a handbag too.

Navy Scarf, Neverfull and Colourful Skinny Jeans: Weekday Wear Link Up

Two identical outfit formulas for today's Weekday Wear Link Up, but outfits for two very different days! Both a winter staple formula of skinny jeans, blue scarves, v-neck tees and cardigans. Accessorised with my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote bag.

What I wore:

King Island walk outfit sass and bide skinny jeans white tee cardigan bird print scarf and Louis vuitton neverfull | away from blue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Scarf: navy bird print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very fun day at Wellington Point! We were lucky to get there when the tide was out so we could go for a walk out to King Island after lunch. When the tide is out, a sand bridge appears all the way from Wellington Point right onto the island. It's the first time we've been able to walk out there with both boys since my my now 4 old was a baby. The tide has not been in our favour before. The kids enjoyed exploring the island although I did regret the walk the next day - while it's a short walk at a couple of k's there and back, walking on sand is a bit rough on my injured knee, even though I took my shoes off to do it.

I wasn't sure what the weather would be like as last time we were there it was cold and windy - so I picked a light cardigan, my navy scarf and a fun pair of magenta skinny jeans. I really like these magenta jeans with blue and the grey cardigan was a good neutral. I thought the white birds in the print matched the white v-neck tee well too! I didn't end up taking this cardigan off - it was a warm day but the sea breeze meant I kept my arms covered. Although it was busy on the beach it was nice everyone kept their distance!






What I wore:

layred winter burgundy jeans and tee outfit neverfull heart print scarf waterfall cardigan | awayfromblue

navy scarf and cardigan with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan in navy night sky marle
ScarfStella McCartney heart print scarf
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Jeans: Jeanswest Harper skinny pant in Russet
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

A bit of a darker outfit for this cooler day! With the wet weather we headed to our local shopping centre for a bit of a browse and to pick up a few groceries. This was before the recent COVID cases in Brisbane, we are back to shopping online 99% of the time now! But it was good to get some presents for an upcoming birthday party, and treat ourselves to some new books (the kids got some Disney ones) and a Boost juice. They had a colour burst promo on so I decided to try the blue smoothie - not only was it delicious it is the first time I'd have a blue smoothie and I had to get a pic as it matched the blues in my outfit so well!

The Stella McCartney heart print scarf was a bit of matchy-matchy too, with the black in the print matching the black v-neck tee. I liked the navy cardigan with the scarf too, even though they are different shades of blue I think it worked well. The burgundy jeans added a little extra colour and the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag carried all of our water bottles and some snacks for the boys, as well as all of my essentials, so I didn't need to carry the baby bag as well.



How You Can Wear It:

Navy scarves go with so much! For something a little different you can try wearing them with colourful jeans instead of the classic blue denim. It's a good way to add more colour to a classic jeans, tee and cardigan outfit in winter.

Maxi Skirts and Knits: Weekday Wear Link Up!

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up I'm sharing two winter maxi skirt outfits for two very different days! A bright and colourful one for a day outside enjoying the winter sun and a neutral one for working from home.

What I wore:

navy and orange outfit denim jacket cobalt knit ochre maxi skirt winter mum style | away from blue

rust maxi skirt and Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | denim jacket cobalt knit orange ochre maxi skirt park mum style outfit winter

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Jumper: thrifted Valleygirl blue knit jumper
Skirt: thrifted Tree of Life ochre maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

The knit jumper and the denim jacket together may have been a little bit overkill on a warm winter day, but it was very windy! I felt nice and cosy all layered up, and although I thought I wouldn't need a scarf I did miss it when we were in the shade and the wind picked up! Definitely didn't need any more layers on the sun though, it was quite strong and warm sunshine.

I really liked the colour combo of the cobalt knit with the ochre maxi skirt, I need to wear this again! I thought the pale blue denim biker jacket and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag were great additions to the bright colours.

This maxi skirt is quite light in the wind but it's also pretty voluminous and so never flew up too much thank goodness!


30 Ways To Wear A Navy Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan






What I wore:

neutral grey embellished knit jumper with black maxi skirt denim jacket micro bedford bag | awayfromblue

black maxi skirt with navy bag Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | embellished grey knit black maxi skirt denim jacket navy micro bedford bag

Jacket: Bubblegum denim jacket
JumperWarehouse grey bead front jumper
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, I ended up taking this denim jacket off when it warmed up! This pretty embellished knit is one I tend to very sparingly wear as it is so pretty it feels a bit too special for everyday wear, but it was overdue a wear so I got it out again! Paired it simply with the black thrifted maxi skirt and my classic dark blue denim jacket, and again the Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. This was such a comfortable outfit for running around a lot and also working from home most of the day.

Did the school drop off in the morning and wished I'd added a scarf, but by school pickup time I'd taken off the denim jacket as it was too warm! Took my son to his first in-person specialist appointment since iso! While restrictions had been lifted a few weeks before, some sniffles kept us away from the office and continuing to do our fortnightly session via telehealth. It was so good to be able to go into the office again! Face to face is much more entertaining for a 4 year old than a zoom call, although I'm glad we had those sessions to fall back on over Iso. The benefits of technology!


Last worn: denim jacket, embellished grey knit, black maxi skirt, black Converse, Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:
A maxi skirt can be layered up for a warmer winter day by adding a cosy knit and a denim jacket.
